Stargate SG-1: Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Since there seem to be a few fans here, I figured I'd start a thread. :D 

 

I've done the first three episodes, and I love it so far. I'm glad I saw the film first. It picks up from there really nicely and I liked the little callbacks to the movie like the officers driving to get O'Neill or that they used the same opening credits. I was a little sad they changed them starting episode 3, even if the second version is just as good, but I suppose it was only meant for the pilot and the reveal that it is an Egyptian face loses its effect after seeing it 2 or 3 times. 

 

The most difficult part to recast was perhaps that of David Spader, and I think they did well enough. I instantly liked Sam and Teal'c. And I was so glad to see the same Skaara from the film come back! He was one of the best. 

 

Very sad both he and Sha're were turned into hosts.

 

And Kawalsky getting turned too was a brilliant twist.

 

A great start! @applcin @Taoboi

The first couple of episodes are really good in setting up the premise of the show and getting the team into place. There is a strong resemblance between the two Daniels and Shanks makes the role his pretty quickly. RDA wanted Jack to have more of a sense of humor than in the film and I liked his Jack right off the bat. It's a nice ensemble. Already you can see the show is serious, funny, sad, intelligent, silly. There will be some clunker episodes as with all series but, overall, it's really good.

A bit of personal trivia...the actress playing Sha're had a relationship with Shanks and they have a child but broke up before the series ended.

Yeah...that was one thing I did like like...the fact that Shanks did it right in being a recast and keeping some mannerisms and the look of Spader before he made it his own.
