| One of the greatest Sci-Fi series ever
I nominate this and BABYLON 5 as the best television sci-fi series made. Both stand out in my mind because unlike early STAR TREK series, there is a consistent evolution of plots and characters. If you look at the original STAR TREK and STAR TREK:TNG, they were fine shows, but there was no overall theme or plot that connected all the episodes. In many ways, you could usually watch the shows totally out of sequence with no difficulty understanding what is occurring. This was less the case with DEEP SPACE 9 (with its giant battles that took up all of the final season) and the other TREK shows, as there was more of a larger story that unified them. This coherence seems to have developed as a concept with BABYLON 5 and saw this to an even greater extent with SG-1. The bottom line is that in many ways this series was like watching a family or a long novel slowly take form. Sure, there were a few "throwaway" episodes that were not connected to the rest, but these were very few and far between and were also usually pretty funny.

And speaking of funny, I loved that SG-1 kept the mood light from time to time and wasn't so dreadfully serious. In this way, I actually enjoyed it more than BABYLON 5. Jack O'Neill was a great character with his sarcasm and love of Homer Simpson--it's really too bad he slowly faded from the series in later seasons.

To truly appreciate SG-1, you should watch it from the beginning and see how intricately the plots work. This coherence gives the show exceptional staying power. And, if you don't like SG-1 after giving it a fair chance, then sci-fi is probably NOT the genre for you.

Trivia

Several elements and characters from Stargate (1994) also appeared throughout the series, and although some retained their original characteristics, many have been changed or altered entirely. Here are some of the primary differences between movie and show: -Aside from the obvious difference in the actors playing the characters, the character Sha'uri from the movie appeared several times in the series, but her name on the show was Sha're. -In the movie, Colonel O'Neil's name was spelled with one L, but in the series, it's spelled with two Ls (which O'Neill himself emphasizes on a couple of occasions). -Colonel O'Neill's son was named Tyler in the movie (his name could be seen on various awards hanging on the wall of his room), but in the series, his name was Charlie. -The Stargate was located inside a military installation inside Creek Mountain in the movie, but in the series, it was located at the military installation inside the Cheyenne Mountain Complex. -The planet Abydos was supposedly located "on the other side of the known universe" in the fictional Kaliam galaxy, millions of light years away, but in the television series, it is located inside our own Milky Way galaxy, and said to be the nearest planet to Earth with a working Stargate. -In the movie, each Stargate had a distinct set of symbols (represented by star constellations on Earth's gate), which differed from gate to gate. In the series however, each of the symbols on each of the gates are very similar, with the point of origins being the only unique symbols for each gate. -The wormhole effect for the Stargate was different in the movie and the series. In the movie, the effect appeared as a spinning vortex coming out from behind the gate. However, this was absent from the series.


Quotes

Jack O'Neill: Hey kids!


Goofs

Jack O'Neill is a flag officer in the USAF and thus deputy commander of the Stargate program. This means that he would have an organizational rather than an operational role in the unit. He would not be allowed to go on most missions as his knowledge and expertise would have been exploited by an enemy were if he was captured.
