Takes off where the Stargate movie left you...
Most believe Stargate SG-1 to be better than the movie it spawned from. Perhaps that is so. But I believe being a series it can also expand on a lot of things the movie didn't have time for.

A plot, characters, and humour add the entertainment factor to the StarGate, which in it's movie phase was just a concept thrown into a film.

However being a series the writers often seem to write episodes which diverge from the main plot and end up looking like a traditional science fiction story, or an episode entirely focused on developing a character. I despise this, but many people to enjoy a break from the fate-of-the-world type hype that happens in most episodes.

Personally I think this is the greatest show to ever hit the screens, and a lot of people agree with me. A lot of sci-fi fans love this one. I am not a sci-fi fan, but this very concept has always been with me even before I saw the Stargate film, so I was very interested in this whole phenomenon. A lot of history buffs watch this one, as most races of people on the show are decendants from ancient Earth civilisations. A lot of people watch it because the cast is just so sexy! (Go Amanda and Teryl!)

It really is a truly fantastic show! I recommend everyone watch it, no matter what your impression was when you first heard the title etc...

Did You Know?


Throughout the series, the character Daniel Jackson wears glasses. It is obvious that the glasses he wears are flat plate glass, which means he doesn't actually need to wear glasses in real life. Anyone who needs real glasses knows they are convex (curved) to accommodate the vision problem that is being corrected.


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.


Between the episodes Stargate SG-1: Small Victories (2000) and Stargate SG-1: Redemption: Part 2 (2002), the Beta (Antarctic) stargate is used at the SGC for gate travel, since the original gate ended up at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean in "Small Victories" and later fell into the possession of the Russians until its return to the SGC in "Redemption Pt 2". We notice that in Stargate SG-1: Solitudes (1998) (the first episode to feature the Beta gate) the point of origin symbol (an octagon with a line below it) is different from the point of origin symbol of the original gate (pyramid and circle), however in various episodes that featured the Beta gate in use, the point of origin symbol mysteriously changes to the symbol from the original gate.

Alternate Versions

In the SCi-Fi Channel preview for "Cure" (episode 6.12) Peter Stebbings' character, Malek, speaks with a normal voice. In the final episode Malek speaks with the modulated voice common to the Tok'ra and Goa'uld.
