This show continues to impress me.
Very few TV shows based on films are ever good, this one is. Very few TV shows can maintain their pace and originality over the years, this one has. I've just watched the first 6 episodes of season 4 and each and every one of them has been a cracker.

This show has lots going for it; intelligent and convincing plots, great multi-dimensional characters, superb actors (both major and minor players), expert direction (hats off to Peter DeLuise), continuity of story, consistent use/appearance of sci-fi technology, witty but subtle dialog and almost as an aside, stunning FX.

The only thing left to say is that I feel sorry for people that haven't been watching up till now. Please, it's not too late.

Trivia

multiple cameos throughout the series, most of which were uncredited, non-speaking roles. Several of them involved him and Dan Shea (Siler) standing in the background holding a large over-sized adjustable wrench.


Quotes

Jack O'Neill: If we want to find out who's behind this, we have to do what the Asgard do.
Daniel: You mean bluff?
Jack O'Neill: Yep. We just need to do it without revealing what we know.
Daniel: Which is nothing.
Jack O'Neill: Right. But they don't know we know nothing.


Goofs

The very idea that most alien civilizations outside of Earth can speak English is a linguistic impossibility. English was developed long after the stargates were used to populate these other planets and furthermore, English is an amalgamation and evolution of other early languages unique to Earth after the Gou'ald. Nevertheless, production logistics and writing logistics made it more practical for alien encounters to speak English as to eliminate the repetition of Daniel deciphering the language and then translating the language to the rest of the team for any episode dealing with an alien race which were the majority of the episodes. This also helped eliminate the need for the writers to invent a new language for every new alien civilization encountered. This practice carried over into Stargate: Atlantis as well.


Alternate Versions

Various episodes have been edited for syndication, removing occasional nudity and swear words that were allowed in the first-run Showtime viewings.
