Stargate: SG1 Season 1 Review

What with the “Stargate” franchise being dead for the foreseeable future, and since my older kids kinda’ like it, It thought now was as good a time as any to review the series. I’d always wanted to do it in chronological order, but I never have. Also, there are a metric ton of SG1 episodes I’ve never seen, and a lot of SGA eps as well. I really didn’t start watching until it was on Syfy (Then called “Skiffy”), and while they endlessly repeated the earlier eps, I never made an effort to catch up.

“What the hell does James Bond have to do with Science Fiction?” I hear you asking. Well, Bond has fought so many villains with nonexistent super-high-tech weapons, brought down two illegal space programs, and been in actual space battles with such abandon that “Spy-Fi” has become an accepted subgenre of SF itself, and literally scores of shows from The Man From U.N.C.L.E. to Chuck have frequently dabbled with these kinds of trappings to a greater or lesser extent to give their stories a sense of the exotic and also just for a bit of high-stakes peril.
