Stargate SG-1: The Retirement
Reviewed in the United States on December 13, 2016
After a long and illustrious career traveling the galaxy and fighting the Goa'uld with the rest of the Stargate SG-1 team, Daniel Jackson retires to his childhood home in woodlands of Oregon/Washington and takes over the bed & breakfast that his family has run for generations. Trying to forget his past off-planet loves lost, he kept a low profile about his past and tried to live a fairly anonymous life. Known to the locals by his childhood name of "Little Jack", he married a beautiful lady and became a daddy to a wonderful daughter; but then, tragedy stuck. His wife died leaving him to raise their young little girl all alone. Then, his parents got in a bad traffic accident forcing Little Jack to care for them in the big city hospital until, they too, died. All the while, a few big snow-storms-of-the-century begin to devastate the historical lodge, leaving it and Jack's dreams close to ruin.
Eventually, a former frequent guest of the lodge returns. Mary hasn't been there since she and Jack were young, but finds it in her heart to try to save the building her family spent so much time in. Can Mary help save the lodge? Will Mary be able to heal the divisions in her family? Does Teal'c, O'Neill, and Carter stop by with a hammer and wrench to help rebuild the deteriorating plumbing? And once everyone else is out of earshot, will they will reminisce about their past adventures and all the times they saved the Earth? Indeed.
This is decent TV movie. If you're a scifi fan, imagining Michael Shanks in some sort of post-SG-1 secret identity reassignment program makes it even better. You can see the Daniel Jackson mannerisms in many scenes and it brought an extra smile to me.
