  • About 5 years ago I found it again on the SciFi channel, and it finally got me hooked
  • While season 8 was airing, I caught up on seasons 1 thru 7 on DVD, which was quite a heady experience
  • The show can be a mixed bag, and some episodes are definitely better than others, but even a mediocre episode is well worth watching, largely for the character interaction and the writing

      Stargate SG-1 followed the adventures of a U.S. Air Force team, titled SG-1, that was assembled to fight evil alien parasites, named Goa’uld, who use humans as hosts and for slave labor. The stargate, an interplanetary portal that was unearthed in the movie, was the team’s sole method of transportation throughout the galaxy, at least at first.

      I first encountered this show in syndication on Fox about 7 or 8 years ago, and at first it didn’t entirely grab me. About 5

      • mythology of the show, so it really is a good idea to not miss an episode. Over the seasons the story arc involving humans and a few allies in the galaxy trying to defeat the Goa’uld grows and evolves, and offers more than a few epic moments.

        And, like I said, there’s also the characters and the writing. One of the members of the team, Teal’c, is a human who was formerly enslaved by a Goa’uld. The episodes in which he

        struggles with his past or tries to assimilate into Earth culture are usually standout episodes. His attempts at mastering Earth slang and idioms are funny and endearing. The friendship between the archeologist Daniel Jackson and the team leader, colonel Jack O’Neill, is especially touching and well-done, particularly early in the show’s run.

        Overall, a strong show filled with action, excitement, humor, and occasional poignancy. Sometimes I wish it hadn’t been canceled so we could still have more adventures with the SG-1 team.
