22 April 1999 | C.S.Wood
I'm surprised there aren't more posts...
I think this show is great. A great strength is that it doesn't go into special effects a lot (except for the gate, of course, and the staff weapons/guns). Some compare it to Star Trek (which is unfair, seeing that they are very different) but where a lot of Star Trek plots fail this succeeds.

There are a dozen ways this series can go. It doesn't have a spaceship to fly around in, but rather beams right to an alien planet and gets down to business. Another plus is that it happens NOW, as opposed to a few centuries from now. Area 51 has been mentioned a few times, and the SG site being dubbed Area 52. The actors deserve their share of congrats on the good performances shown, and the writers for coming up with inventive story lines. Some may be recycled or resemble other movies/shows of the past, but they put a special original twist on them that makes it even better. Certainly 'MUST SEE' TV.

Trivia

Certain concepts of Stargate travel were phased out over the course of the first season, such as the travellers feeling extremely cold, and arriving with frost on their faces. Also, the concept of the travellers unable to keep their balance and always tumbling out of the Stargate (unless, of course, they tumbled into the Stargate to begin with). This was explained within the show as a result of more precise dialing of the Earth Stargate, and sometimes these effects are brought back, when the wormhole is disturbed during transit.

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.
