Stargate SG-1: Bounty

(S10E15) Bounty is one of the funniest SG-1 episodes this season. The
The show focuses on each team member, so there's not much to say about the episode as a whole. The editors did a great job (perhaps with the exception of the scene where the bus takes out Daniel's assassin). The effects at the beginning were extremely polished. When I went back through the show a second time I was even more impressed.
I really enjoyed all the comedic moments of the show. Vala just can't resist messing with people a bit. Her deadpan explanation of her education was just perfect. Sam's expression as the doctor checks out the singles scene was priceless. (He deserves something, the poor guy does get stuck with the defective plasma gun after all.)
I did have a little bit of issue with the ending. There was no explanation of just how the team knew about the bounty put on them by the alliance. The same bounty hunter that just held a bunch of people hostage was set free to go take out the Lucian Alliance's leader? I'm surprised that they let him go - even if he did go on to attack the enemy. The presence of the first bounty hunter suggested that there was a contract.
The episode was really enjoyable - the combination of comedy and action made for a great episode.
