New series aimed towards the BSG crowd.

And knock it off with the movie bashing. They were decent.

We get both. According to the news stories on Gateworld, we'll be getting an Atlantis movie late next year, and Stargate Universe will start in the Fall. So we won't actually be "missing" any Stargate, but it will be a new series. Personally I wish they kept Atlantis (or Canceled SG-1 back when it should have been, and started Universe then), but we're going to have to make due with what we get. Or stop watching if they continue to degrade the franchise into more crap (although the latest season of Atlantis has been promising, I have my issues with it).

Those weren't replicators. They were Asurans.

They called them Replicators but the only real link to SG-1's replicators are being machines.

Also: Atlantis cancelled? Unsurprising.

The best villain has to be Ba'al. Over the top bad guy with a South African accent...can you really beat that? There were some really great villains though. Obviously the Anubis story arc was awesome, and the replicators have been a great enemy in SG1 and Atlantis. Adria was interesting in the final 2 seasons + Ark of Truth too.

I'm a huge SG1, but I also love Atlantis, and I'm pretty gutted that they cancelled it.

Do we only have to talk about villains on this thread, or stargate in general? I think that the show was great, even the last 2 seasons though I agree that you have to think of them as a separate show. My favourite thing about it was the fact that it referenced to so many different mythologies and it had great special effects. Having Daniel die all the time was funny, especially when they start taking the mick out of it. RDA rocks :D

Ba'al. He was the only villain with real.... "Class". Not to mention the only one that ever really seemed to realize "Oh, hey. If I let Anubis destroy the Taur'i, I'm pretty well screwed. Maybe I'll help them and not betray them."

Finally some Ba'al love!

As much as I like to be a film snob, I still have two weaknesses, one is for caper/heist movies. the other is for villains that are Magnificent Bastards. Any movie/series that can pull off either of these tropes I will pretty much love, (not that I didn't love SG-1 already)
Anubis is a close second for approaching magnificent bastardhood in the diner scene, but in my opinion, he was mostly just a chessmaster villain.

Also, I never really liked the replicators, it always seemed that beating them was too 'deus ex machina'-y and even the best replicators (Fifth and Replicarter) lacked much appeal to me.

I always like Maybourne as a villain. I much prefer the internal conflicts to the huge, galaxy spanning ones. I think they give the show some perspective.

Also, I haven't seen series 9-10, and don't intend to.

Off topic a little, but you have given me the exact reason why I liked the end of doctor who season 3 so much more than season 4.

But really, I liked SG1 far more before the ori. Stargate universe sounds pretty cool though.

If you liked Ba'al at all, he gets a lot of screen time in the last two seasons. Which really saved them. (That and it becoming Fargate, if you know what I mean there.)

I am resurrecting this thread to talk about this past weekend's Stargate Atlantis episode.

As you might know, Jewel Staite (aka Kaylee from Firefly) has been on the show.

Friday's episode focused on her and the character Rodney McKay. There were subtle Firefly references, and even an appearance by Bill Nye! Bill Nye called dibs on Jewel Staite which is hilarious.

Yes, I think it was one of the best non-story line SGA's yet. Bill Nye was awesome, though I feel sorry for the people who didn't grow up with him, as it isn't quite as cool then.

btw, who was that black guy who demoted Pluto? I am not as up-to-date with American science shows as the writers I guess.

Thanks for the name, I don't feel so bad about not recognising him.

I know :) Bill Nye here was hilarious, he pretty much made that episode (hence my friend in England finding it only ok. "I'm an engineer, I can still do maths." Also, checking the maths as he went along, duh!

This was taken off of streaming (along with Atlantis) at Netflix on August 15th. If you've got a subscription contact them and let them know you'd like it back! Still available for streaming on Amazon.

Is there a forum for the Stargate tabletop RPG, or was that something that nobody had interests in? (I'm having trouble finding the search function after a long hiatus).

necro'd into expecting a revival.

Though the franchise can't be revived after Stargate: Universe.

You guys remember the Universe episode guest starring RDA? He made jokes and the characters SMILED for two seconds? Can't have that! How did that show ever make it to 3 seasons anyway?

...I quite liked Universe. Maybe it shouldn't have been Stargate. But I quite liked it on its own. The sense of isolation and struggling to survive on an ancient alien spaceship when you can barely open the doors... worked quite well, for me.

In hindsight, I think the biggest problem with Universe is that it wasn't very self-aware. SG-1 and Atlantis knew exactly what they were and owned the hell out of it. Universe was trying to be something different and I don't feel like anyone involved really had the confidence in what they were trying to do in order to make it work as well as it could.

Except Eli. Eli was the show's one saving grace for most of Season 1. Until (and I don't remember the exact point) Rush started figuring things out as well sometime late in the first season. And then the Second season was mostly other characters also starting to hit their groove. I feel like if the show had been given another season or two, it could have definitely turned into something better than it was.

The personality swapping stones were the worst part of Stargate: Universe. Because seriously if there was a massive life threatening problem, you'd call up Sam or McCay and get them to switch with random nobody on the ship and solve your issue. Or the time they needed a doctor and there was only that medic there. There must be a TON of actual surgeons that could just swap over to deal with your issues.
