      Stargate SG-1: Full Alert is about midway through the eight season of this science fiction series, and it’s a pretty good one.

      One of the best scenes is early on when Jack and the team discuss the crisis of the moment. Jack gives Teal’c his assignment, and he leaves. Then Sam gets her assignment, and she leaves. Jack keeps writing something on his notepad, leaving Daniel just sitting there. So Daniel gets up and says something about having to pick up his dry cleaning. It was a great line. Of course, Jack does have something for Daniel to


      do; it was just a nice comedic moment.

      Daniel actually ends up heading for Russia, where he meets his contact, a gal named Daria. She’s one of just a couple that could have had a successful relationship with Daniel. There was some zing there, a legitimate spark that was fun to watch, especially because their first scene. It’s just so funny the way she takes Daniel down a notch, woman to man.

      Interestingly, one of the filmed scenes that was taken out of the final cut was Daniel explaining why he didn’t come back the day the crisis ended. It ...


      • seems he took Daria out for dinner.

        For me, Jack spends most of the episode running around the SGC, calling out their DEFCON status. Yes, he has more to do, but I’ve always had that feeling that mostly he was shouting out DEFCON numbers.

        As the show concludes, the crisis is averted and it ends on a close up of Jack. I never liked that; it was too downbeat.

        However, at the same time, I’m usually still chuckling at one of the bits before the end. Amanda Tapping who plays Sam had an appointment to get to, and she was worried about being

        late. Her last scene for the day had Sam retrieving/sending a communication. Originally, she was just supposed to sit back there, looking busy. Amanda suggested doing her bit and getting up and walking out of the scene. The producers agreed, so when Sam nods at Jack that she’s done and gets up and leaves, Amanda really got up and sprinted outside the studio and to her appointment. Small tidbit that makes me chuckle even now.

        There are some surprises in Stargate SG-1: Full Alert. It’s a good episode. A better ending scene would have given it a ‘10′.
