I’m a bit older than you. I was in college, I believe when Stargate started airing, but i too “grew up” with this series. I have recently started rewatching the series with my children and I have been just as entranced as they are. Stargate is right up there with Star Trek, in my opinion. The shows were more about personal interaction and what it means to be human, than about ‘science fiction’. Stargate SG-1 will achieve the same fame and notoriety for the same reasons.

I’ve been on the same journey, rewatching SG-1 and now Atlantis. My girlfriend expressed interest in the show a while back (obviously I’d never made efforts to hide the fact that it’s likely my favorite show), and so we started watching it together. It was my first time going back to it in several years, and I have to admit greatly enjoying the rewatch. It also helps to have her perspective on everything, which offered a fresh take on everything. And it was also enjoyable watching her enjoy the same characters and plot lines that I loved my first time… Read more »

Wben Stargate SG-1 first aired, I wasn’t interested i n watching, primary because of T’ealcs mark on his forebead. Then I got the box set of all 10 seasons on CD ine year for Christmas. I began watching, and soon became a die hard fan, and have watched every episode many times each. However, tragedy befell me wben my son made off with the first episode (hmmm….now why did he take THAT one😒) Of all the episodes, I would have to say Scorched Earth is my favorite, but there is hardly an episode that I don’t like.

I am a middle aged woman who was a teen when the first Star Wars came out so I have been hooked on sci go my whole life. When I discovered Stargate Sg1 and Stargate Atlantis it was love at first episode with both shows. I loved Carter’s role as there were not a lot of strong smart, science women being shown. Before this. I loved Princess Leia for same reason. However the best part of the show is tying historical myths to scientific possibilities. The ancient gods, the old mystical ties to various religions on earth. I lived in… Read more »

I started watching the series again. Just got to the second season. I’m really looking forward to experiencing heartbreak at *spoiler* Daniel apparently dying then coming back as an ascended being, the episode where they rip off/pay homage to Farscape (one of my other favorite sci-fi shows), and Ben Browder and Claudia Black’s entrance to the show. Love it.

A while back I had answered a question on Quora asking which was better, Star Trek or Stargate. It was a fun and interesting question to answer, being a fan of BOTH. I think what I wrote about SG-1 there is appropriate to share here, but I’ll just post a small bit of it, the rest if you are interested can be found on Quora: https://qr.ae/TW2DDY —— When Stargate SG-1 came out, I absolutely adored it. It managed to strike an amazing balance of action, scifi, and humor all bundled into a world that was excellently created and oh so… Read more »

I watched this show when it originally launched on TV; and watched the DVDs. I recently re-watched all the seasons; and just started Ark of Truth DVD. It is still a fantastic show.

Origins was hot trash. It didn’t spark interest. It was an embarrassing disaster.

I watched part of one episode. Looked like feminists had struck their mark on Stargate to ruin it like many other great things.

This article is timely. I just started rewatching from ep 1 about 3 weeks ago. I started watching when it came on syndicated tv in the late 90s some time. It completely holds up. Ever since i saw the first wormhole engage in the movie i was hooked. To me, with the exception of Natasha Henstridge in Species, its the best story device in all of science fiction. More then hyperdrives and phasers. The chemistry in the show between all the characters is obvious and and makes the show feel so fun. The only other scifi show that i think… Read more »

I am, coincidentally re-watching the series while on the elliptical every morning (thank you Amazon Prime) and it just never gets old! I love the comaraderie on the show, how the team coalesced quickly and worked smoothly together. I love their heart and humor and love the stories. I also love that the writers were obviously Star Trek fans, my other Sci Fi love. I miss having new episodes, but agree that Origins was the least compelling contribution to the canon. I hope if they do form another team, they do it with the care that they did with this… Read more »

I love Stargate including the series! One main reason is my dad’s father was once stationed at Chyanne Mountain/NORAD! North American Air Defence. But, no Stargate though. I find it very interesting that I lead character in Stargate series that there is a Cameron Mitchell was named after my grandfather, my dad’s father!

My grandfather was a full Colonel and then a one star General. His name is General William Mitchell. Character in Stargate SG1 Cameron Mitchell was given to the actor that plays Cameron Mitchell.

I could take another team going through the stargate, as long as the mythology and history isn’t erased for newbies.

My biggest wish is Sam and Jack are confirmed as a couple, with being married as the cherry on top.
