Crossing the Line
25 March 2016 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The SG-1 goes to Tollan expecting to negotiate weapon technology to defend Earth from the Goa'uld; however High Chancellor Travel refuses the proposal. The upset Colonel O'Neill decides to steal the defense device that disables weapons. When General Hammond learns about his unethical procedure, he offers Martial Court or early retirement to Jack. He prefers the retirement and soon Jack is approached by Maybourne that invites him to command a rogue team that steals alien technology. O'Neill reaches the rock bottom and accepts the invitation. Soon he meets his team in another planet and they travel to steal an Asgard device. What has happened with Jack?

"Shades of Grey" is a different episode of Stargate SG-1. The nasty Maybourne is really an unethical character. Jack convinces not only Maybourne, but also the viewers with a great performance. The conclusion is funny when he tries to explain Daniel his attitude. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Shades of Grey"
