its on its tenth season for a reason
You know its hard to get my friends to give a show with a name like Stargate a chance but, there is a reason it is on its tenth season. kudos to the cast for their chemistry that has kept fans enticed for nearly a decade. cheers!
Thank goodness! The best sci fi show ever is finally on itunes. A show that is not afraid to make fun of itself and everybody else. Congrats to cast and crew for ten incredible years and 200 amazing shows!
i was excited to see both SG1 and atlantis available on itunes. while battlestar may have been a good choice to get up on itunes first, SG1 has been a mainstay of sci-fri friday. now in its 10th season, the team is battling a new enemy, but the show remains consistent...consistently good. sure, RDA (MacGuyver!) may not be full time anymore, but Claudia Black (it's love, i tell you) and Ben Browder (i miss farscape!) have been added to the cast and have added the humor that O'Neil provided, plus kept the show fresh with fresh, pretty, and for sci-fi familiar faces. Tapping, Shanks, and Judge are all still there (thankfully!) and a few other new faces (Bridges) have been added to the cast, as well. as always, the special effects and sense of realism remain top-notch, and for such a mature show, the story lines still keep me wondering what is going to happen next. if you like sci-fi and haven't checked out this show yet, give it a chance.
