Stargate SG-1 : season 5 review


22 50 minute episodes

SF elements

hostile alien contact; FTL travel


The series is keeping up its high level of continuity, building on past seasons and previous episodes -- there are now very few mere "planet of the week" episodes. This allows a sense of progression and achievement -- problems are solved -- without detracting from the tension -- new, bigger problems take their place. Yet there is still place for the occasional humorous episode: Wormhole X-Treme (the 100th episode) being a highlight. So, still worth watching. (And it will be interesting to see how the series survives the loss of one of the main characters.)

Rating: 3

[ unmissable | great stuff | worth watching | mind candy | waste of time | unfinishable ]
