  Life without Daniel is tough on SG1, while Sam deals with Jonas setting up residence in Daniels old office Jack has to deal with finding a replacement and is going through candidates with wild abandon until such time as Hammond drops the Russian demand for one of their people to take the vacant place. Faced with doing the improbable and with Tealcs encouragment he finally considers Jonas Quinn as the fourth member of SG1 but first there is the apparant attack on the SGC by Anubis using the Stargates ability to deliever energy into the system eventually leading to a catastophic explosion.
As luck would have it Teal’c is offworld dealing with his families own issues and is in a postition to aid the SGC at a time when gate travel is denied them and their only unproven interstellar vehicle is in dire need of field testing and incapable of transporting them off world.

Just a snack

Redemption (Part 1) is the season six premiere and the first episode of SG1 to debut on the US Syfy channel. While their are not any obvious signs of a change in production style or intent the show does feel different thanks to the loss of Michael Shanks and all the things he and his character Daniel brought to the party. Ultimately the episode hits the ball out of the park by being an excellent season opener and a kickstarter to the new team dynamic and the prospect of facing a uber system lord but without may of the crutches the SGC has relied to survive this far.
Corin Nemec now a regular cast member with credit carries own the almost happy go lucky approach with Jonas whose is a friendly and outgoing express delight at of all things the weather channel and despite some reservations his intelligence and reasoning gets him out of the base much quicker than Teal’c was able to achieve.
So we have an excellent season opener with drama, comedy and suspense not to mention a fair amount of out and out action combined with some top notch CGI, what more could you want.
