Stargate SG-1 Watchathon – ‘Emancipation’

If you’ve followed the comments from our earlier Stargate posts, you’ll know that “Emancipation” does not receive high marks from some people. And once you watch this episode, you’ll know why. A cliched, heavy handed story, some poor acting and a setting that shows the writers reaching for an idea lead to a bad episode. I remember seeing this one waaaay back when. I didn’t like it then and I don’t like it now. And really, what’s up with all the people on the other worlds being able to speak English? I know it’s a contrivance to make it easier to follow along, but it strains credibility. There’s not even a nod to why SG-1 can talk to many different ‘aliens’. This happens all through the series, you’ll just have to put it behind you.

Bad bad Stargate writers! You’re better than this.
