I absolutely adore Stargate SG-1: Space Race though not all that many care for it as much as I do. For me, it’s a feel good show. From season 7, it’s a change up, something different and light. More than that, it has some really fun and awesome Jack and Daniel moments.
Initially, I thought it was going to be an all Sam Carter (Amanda Tapping) story, but while she is key, there is just so much fun with the Jack and Daniel scenes that this show is actually very high up on my list of favorites.
Some of my favorite bits for Jack and Daniel in this hour: a) at the business when they want to see the boss and Jack ends up telling the receptionist to say that the man who has the Stargate is there. This whole scene is a hoot; b) when they are waiting for the man, Jack is sleeping in a chair while Daniel is dipping his foot inside a pond.
We also get Teal’c looking like a bellboy, which is something to behold.
I watch this episode frequently. While Sam is off on the great space race, I’m just smiling and having a good time.
