Stargate SG-1: Ex Deux Machina aired in the 9th year of this sci fi show. It was okay, but at the same time, it was a little off in a weird way. This is because it’s easy to question whether anyone would buy the cover story that ends up being used to explain what happens here. It’s not like we’re talking about an explosion in space. This ends up being an entire building, a very tall and noticeable building, just disappearing. Sometimes even science fiction stretches things too far.
Of importance to the show, however, is that this is the one when Amanda Tapping returns from maternity leave. Her Sam Carter character finally returns to Stargate Command after working at Area 51 for a time.
The bad guy for the hour is once again Ba’al, who some love to hate, but not me. I don’t like the actor and just don’t enjoy watching him anywhere as much as I did Peter Williams, who was Apophis.
What is really worth watching in this hour is the reunion of Sam and Daniel. I like those two together a lot and missed seeing their scenes. Unfortunately, we don’t get to see as much of this in the future.
