The Gate to New Worlds
Stargate SG-1 is one of the best sci-fi shows to hit television. I'm a fan of Star Trek and it's spin-offs, and of Babylon 5. Stargate ranks with these fine shows.
Based loosely on the movie 'Stargate', starring Kurt Russell, SG-1 takes the story to whole a new level. Once it's discovered that the Stargate can go to many worlds and not just Abydos (the planet where Ra was killed), the Earth Stargate is reactivated. Colonel Jack O'Neill, now played by Richard Dean Anderson, is called out of retirement to lead SG-1. SG-1 is the flagship unit of Stargate Command (the SGC). Located 28 levels down in Cheyenne Mountain, Colorado.
The show's science fiction is cutting edge. Using physics and astronomy coming from the top scientists of today, the writers craft interesting stories and adventures for the well developed characters to experience.
Even the guests are great. People like Dwight Schultz (Barclay on ST:TNG) and John DeLancie ("Q" on ST:TNG) have been and still are guest stars.
Each week I look forward to seeing new and syndicated episodes. Certain episodes, like "Window of Opportunity", where Teal'c and O'Neill are caught in a time loop, are both fascinating and tremendously funny. As they keep reliving the same day over and over again, they begin to have fun. They do things they would never do, like O'Neill resigning and kissing Carter, because there are no consequences. The humor is the other very important aspect of the show that makes it so enjoyable to watch.
