Jumping into the Stargate

Last night I sat down and watched the pilot movie for Stargate SG-1 "Children of the Gods"
Let me give you some background. I love the Stargate movie. I saw it when it first came out and thought it was great. I have seen bits or SG-1 over the years but never really sat down to devote much time to it. Nonetheless I have been interested in it, so I figured I should spend some time and catch up.

I picked up the first seson and began watching last night.

This show was originally produced for showtime, so I think it orobably feels a bit different than what showed up on Sci-fi, what with nudity and such. This movie picks up a year after the original stargate movie. The main actors have changed but I din't notice so much (of course that could have been because I am actually more used to seeing the new actors than the original) but it is clear that it is the same story and the same universe. The technology looks the same and it seems to be a good starting place for a series. There are one or two supporting actors that were actualy from the original movie so it was a nice touch.

I am looking forward to dive into the resto of this 1st season of this show, but at the same time a bit intimidated. SG-1 ran for 10 seasons and is about to start its second spin off series, So I think it is going to be a daunting task to catch up, but I think it will be enjoyable.

  1. I've been watching Stargate for years. Didn't care much for the original movie but one of my favorite episodes is Children of the Gods. It sets things up that come back for many seasons later.
