Stargate Sg-1: Show And Tell

Stargate SG-1: Show and Tell aired in season two of this science fiction series that stars Richard Dean Anderson, Michael Shanks, Amanda Tapping, and Christopher Judge.  It’s a show in which a young boy, manufactured in truth by an alien creature, forms a bond with Jack (Anderson).  In fact, he even chooses to use the name of Jack’s dead son, which added some poignancy to the tale.

I do like the bit when Jack and Daniel are hunting bad aliens in Stargate Command and there’s a totally silent moment before the attack when Daniel asks a question with hand gestures.  It just shows the strength of Anderson and Shanks because that scene is as good as their verbal sparring ones.  It followed a more verbal moment, in fact, when Daniel orally asked a question that resulted in a flash bit of anxious comedy.

On the whole, the show is just average for me.  There is the presence of the Tok’ra and we get a new weapon for Earth to use in their battles.  It just didn’t do all that much for me.  Naturally, as indicated above, the Jack and Daniel bits were solid and the best part of the show.  It was just missing an ounce of pizzazz.
