My favorite episode arc or season of SG1 and why for [personal profile] princessofgeeks

Nothing immediately sprang to mind as a particular favorite arc or season. So I decided to browse through episode listings and see if anything popped out. As I looked through, and skipped season 6 entirely, I realized that I was judging each arc/season by Daniel's participation, so I think that speaks a bit to which ones I like ;)

On reflection, I guess that I'd have to say my favorite episode arc is the one that never was. I read somewhere that the Daniel as Prior storyline was originally discussed/planned as being several episodes. I would have loved to see that! I love fallen heroes, the road to hell being paved with good intentions, stories that highlight exactly how thin the line is between light and dark. Plus, I would have loved to see how MS played it. OMG.

But of the the arcs that actually made it on air, I'd pick what I call the 4 Races episodes, including The Torment of Tantalus, The Nox, The Fifth Race. I like the feeling of exploration in these, the idea of benevolent (if non-interventionist) advanced races. It kind of gave a feeling of hope to balance out the impending doom of the Goa'uld. Plus, it put Daniel in his element - finding the galactic Rosetta Stone, and researching the cultures.
