    I've seen the movie a dozen times. Personally, I like the show more. Especially O'Neil. Dude cracks me up. [img]http://216.15.145.59/mainforums/tongue.gif[/img] I'm glad that Scifi picked it up cuz now I can watch [b]up-to-date[/b] episodes.

    Speaking of SG1, anyone notice the similarity between the new ship and the Ulyesses fighter from Freespace?

    Remember that the show is made after the movie as a spinoff series.

    Or perhaps how the fighter from freespace looks like the old Ra deathglider? [img]http://216.15.145.59/mainforums/tongue.gif[/img]

    And it's O'Neill! Note the two l's. Yes, there is a difference. [img]http://216.15.145.59/mainforums/biggrin.gif[/img]

    IMHO, the differences make it slightly better. They certainly are nifty. The Iris is really a great thing to have. [img]http://216.15.145.59/mainforums/smile.gif[/img]

    Actually, I thought the Deathgliders look alot like the Centari Fighters (forgot the name of them).

    I thought the movie was good. It got trashed by the critics, but I found it entertaining.

    The series is really good, though yet again I was unable to follow it from the beginning, and only catch the odd episode here and there. But overall its a qulaity show.

    Actually for UK viewers, Channel 4 is re-running the 1st season of SG 1 on Sundays (cracking pilot ep was 2 weeks ago), followed by Andromeda (pugh crap) and the current SG 1 series.

    the guys behind the movie, roland emmerich and dean devlin (come on you know you reconize these names) hate the show because it took away their sequel, apparently they wanted to go a different way...

    but i LOVE they show.

    Rule of thumb: If the critics hate your movie, its some good shit. [img]http://216.15.145.59/mainforums/smile.gif[/img] Remember how much Siskel & Ebert bitched about how "The Mummy Returns" was "geographically challenged"? And yet the movie kicked alot of ass regardless. (Steve's response to their bitching in the commentary was rather humorous. [img]http://216.15.145.59/mainforums/biggrin.gif[/img])

    I love the movie - one of my favorite Scifi movies actually.

    As for the show - I'm annoyed that its moved to SciFi. I don't get cable here...and thus don't get SciFi [img]http://216.15.145.59/mainforums/frown.gif[/img] [img]http://216.15.145.59/mainforums/frown.gif[/img]

    Thats pretty interesting, do you know where they wanted to take the idea?
  • I think it'll still be syndicated, so you broadcast people, don't panic. It was on Showtime, in case you didn't know, a season ahead all this time. (I didn't get to see the season before this one, so Im wondering where Daniel went...and yes I know now so don't bother helping to fill me in.)

    i only have a vague idea, they discuss it on the commentary track for stargate. vaguely.
  • SanfamSanfam I like clocks.
    He has some of the better lines.

    What about how those Centauri Fighters look a lot like many Kilrathi Fighters from WingCommander, e.g. the Dralthi. That is, unless, WingCommander came after...

    Its not just the Kilrathi Fighters, I noticed that most of the ships share a similar design to the Centauri ships when I first played Wing Commander 3 in 1994.

    Okay, now I'm confused. I was implying the WC series started before B5 or the premiere of the Centauri fighter. I gather this is incorrect? [img]http://216.15.145.59/mainforums/confused.gif[/img]

    Yeah well, it would've been nice to have been able to download the interview itself. [img]http://216.15.145.59/mainforums/frown.gif[/img] Damn MS and their proprietary formats. [img]http://216.15.145.59/mainforums/mad.gif[/img]
