Description: Hathor, a Goa’uld who has taken on the persona of a powerful Egyptian goddess, has charmed the men of Stargate Command to do her bidding. It’s now up to Carter and a handful of women to stop her from taking over the world.
First off, the acting in the opening teaser act is atrocious. Totally unbelievable, no wonder Hathor whacked them. Then Hathor infiltrates SGC and takes over, well over powers the men, using pheromones. Pheromones? Really? Wasn’t there that cologne awhile back that supposedly used pheromones to drive women crazy? We see how well that worked, unless it smelled like a two thousand year old mummy.
Anyway, at least in this episode Cpt. Carter and the rest of the females at SGC show they can kick as much @$$ as the guys can. I’m still trying to decide whether Hathor is hawt or just ridiculous, especially later once she gets more, um, comfortable. Obviously the writers thought Hathor was a good thing as we’ll see more of her in later episodes.
[Upon first meeting Hathor, Jackson explains who she is.]
Jackson – “Hathor was the Egyptian goddess of fertility, inebriatey [sic], and music.”
O’Neill – “Sex, drugs, rock and roll?”
Jackson – “In a manner of speaking, yeah.”
