  • Summary: This sequel to the 1994 movie Stargate chronicles the further adventures of SGC (Stargate Command). It turned out that the Goa'uld Ra was only one of many alien System Lords who used the Stargates to conquer much of the universe. When Earth uncovers a working cartouche to decipher the coding system of Earth's stargate, they can now travel anywhere. Earth's military sends out SG teams to explore new planets, find technology, and oppose the Goa'uld. Jack O'Neill and Daniel Jackson from the movie are part of SG-1. They are joined by Sam Carter, a scientist, and Teal'c, a Jaffa who is convinced the Goa'uld are not gods. After Daniel Jackson was temporarily killed off in Season 6 (when actor Michael Shanks left the show for a year) they brought in Jonas Quinn, a scientist from another planet, to take Jackson's place. In Season 9, Jack O'Neill left the team and was replaced by Lt. Colonel Cameron Mitchell as team leader.

    The two-hour premiere is sort of fun, but the plot is nutty even by sci-fi standards.

    One of my favorite shows. I grew up with this and I've always liked it. The idea, traveling to other galaxies is so fascinating and Stargate: SG-1 really exceeded in that premise. Great cast, great seasons and well done series history/research. Expand

    This was one show I loved, and I will miss it always. The show was fun, it had good action, and most of the time I loved the story. I wish it had not ended but all good things come to an end. I still have the DVDs' to watch. Expand

    Funny, intense, well written, and a consistent joy throughout, the universe this series creates is both incredible and entirely possible, and the premise of a gate that can take you to other worlds is a brilliant basis for a sci-fi series, coupled with some truly heart-shattering good-bye scenes, this series is one to remember. Season 9 is easily the worst of a great bunch, but in Season 8 they killed off just about every major enemy, so given the understandable burden S9 had introducing the new guys, it's completely forgivable. Easily the best current sci-fi series and a believable challenger to Star Trek's (completely undeserved) throne Expand

    have to say I avoided this show when it was broadcast because I thought the movie was dumb and low-brow. In the last couple of years thogh ive watched all 10 seasons a few times and have to say this is one of my staple sci fi shows. The premise is a little silly this is one of the reasons I thought the movie was dumb) but the development and exploration of the stargate world through the 10 seasons is really terrrific and alot of fun. There are still episodes I dont like and skip but all in all this is one of my desert-island tv shows for sure. Expand

    The best Sci-Fi show ever.
    It's a shame they ended it, and even more shame was Stargate Destiny, it did not have anything to do with the
    original show.
    I hope something as good as Stargate shows up soon.

    An amazing sci-fi show, which despite incredibly low production cost and small (but fantastic) cast managed to create an illusion of a vast, populated universe complete with politics, diplomacy, large scale wars and genuine geek humour. The concept of space travel without ships finally freed some space from the neverending "shields depleted", "activate the weapons", "hyperwarp jump mark 2" clichés, and when spaceship combat does play part, it feels exclusive, serious, dangerous, mysterious - some of which is lost in other shows. It is a must for sci-fans all over the globe. Expand

    Unlike most of the reviewers here, I must be the only one to have actually watched other sci-fi shows. The acting on Stargate was embarrassing, the writing mediocre to poor, and the stories repetitive and simpleminded. Not to mention the silly costumes and "special" effects. Anyone who feels this is the "best" sci-fi series out there needs an injection of taste or to seriously broaden their horizons. The humor of the show is to be laughed at, not with. The original Battlestar Galactica from the 1970's is better than this joke of a series, but it seems only "fans" choose to comment. Snap out of it. Expand
