    It seems like its been months since Syfy even bothered to play late-late night and early-early morning airings of stargate episodes, and maybe 2-3 years since they’ve played episodes of SG-1 at 4 or 5 pm. I miss the days when they played re-runs of SGA and SG-1 at 4 and 5pm.

    I hope this is an attempt by Syfy to see if there is any interest in Stargate and maybe sign that they’re willing to bring back Stargate re-runs or Stargate in some form.

    The Nox wouldnt be in my top 20 but definitely top 3 in the first season. TOrment of Tantalus should be on this list, probably instead.

    THIS IS RIDICULOUS! SyFy HAS BANNED the word “Stargate” from their Facebook page!! ANY POSTING placed on SyFy’s Facebook page, containing the word “Stargate” is AUTO / BOT deleted! This is an insult to SG fans, and the ONLY reason that SyFy is showing this marathon, is because the good people from the Facebook page known as “Save Future Stargate Travel” have FLOODED NBC’s Facebook page with requests for MORE NEW SG!! … They don’t want to spend the money on NEW SG, so they order SyFy to throw us a bone, thinking it will shut us up! IT WONT! … Stargate has to be spelled with a dollar sign instead of an “S” to be seen on SyFy’s FB page. .. I KID YOU NOT! This is soooo screwed up, that has to be a television first! … A network that has a marathon of a show, who keeps the name of the show BANNED from their FB page.
    WAY TO GO SyFy!! … You continue to impress Science Fiction fans throughout the world, with your pea brain antics! … Sorry for the rant, but I feel much better now. :) J.S. aka TMGM

    Hopefully a substantial amount of Stargate fans will turn on Syfy USA to show that people still have a credible intrest in Stargate and if any series should be revied in the future in any shape or form as long as it is not a full reboot like Star Trek is Stargate SG1!

    Unfortunately no SyFy where I live but still its good to know that fan support has helped make marathon possible. Although I do agree with comments above regarding the list of what is considered to be “some of the best-ever episodes”.

    I hate to raise false optimism, but could Duffy be doing this to test residual demand for Stargate? See if repeat viewings generate demand lime classic Trek did?

    Torment of Tant, should be in for season 1. Shame the Ori arc has been ignored. I think Unending is dreadful! Mind you as a UK viewer I don’t get any say anyway.

    I watched the entire marathon – even though I have everything on DVD, there’s something about watching it on the air that brings back fond memories – more so, for some reason, than watching Star Trek that I once enjoyed on TV – something I can’t seem to do. I don’t necessarily agree with every choice (The Nox is not a personal favorite, but certainly not the bottom of the barrel.).

    I was a big fan of all three incarnations of StarGate and found much to like about each variation. While SGU’s first season was slow, I was so glad I stuck with in and enjoyed a back-to-back 40 episode netflix-watch recently. I was very saddened to see how SGU was treated by many fans of the series, especially because I felt it showed so much growth over its short life, but don’t expect or fault others for not liking the premise – to each his own, and certainly it was different (very different) than the previous two. I do strongly think, though, that all that hate and vitriol toward the series, writers, cast, and producers was a major factor in putting the franchise in its entirety to bed, which was the ultimate disappointment. No stargaze was the outcome no one wanted, but we alll got, unfortunately – and I hold out hope MGM will revive the franchise, in the existing universe (not a reboot, like JJ Trek) sometime sooner than later.

    I tend to disagree with the statements that the writers and producers either didn’t care or were out of quality ideas. For better or worse, there was a lot of life left in SGU, and whether people liked the direction or not, the Last five episodes of the series set forth a storyline that could have/would have been extremely interesting to see play out.

    On the Atlantis movie side, I’m thankful for whatever Joe Mallozzi has posted for everyone. Ive spent many sleepless nights pouring over the site, enjoying the tales, art, and stories, and while I also don’t particularly like the treatment for the SGA movie, I think he’s been vague enough in act 2 and 3 details that it could’ve gone either way. In any case, Id have watched it multiple times, just as Continuum and Ark :-).

    The nature of sci-if and fantasy on TV has been interesting and heartwrenching to observe. The community lost a lot of good shows between 2005-2009, shows that at least I enjoyed – shows that were slow to start, shows that weren’t picked up when, in retrospect, I sure the network/producers wish they would’ve carried in beyond where they did, etc. That said, here were are in 2013 with a ton of new sci-fi and fantasy shows set to hit the small screens in the next year. Im excited about what’s to come, though Im sad and left wondering where is Stargate in all of this. Seems like a lot of investment in new ideas (which I love) but a huge omission in the lack of any form of stargaze on the screens,

    No Reckoning? Seriously, Syfy?
