China, UK, and I think France were involved. One of the annoying things about Atlantis was that while Grodin wore a Union Flag patch on his arm, the scotch doctor got a saltire patch.

On the one hand it was nice to see a reflection of the UK's large asian community, on the other it was bizarre, and a little offensive, to have that dreadful fake accent walking around with the Scottish flag when it should have been the same as Grodin's.

Atlantis also had guys with german flag patches worn upside down now and then.

But... Paul McGillion is Scottish? Born there, raised by Scottish parents mostly in Canada, but still more Scottish than Irish-descent James Doohan ever was?

I would love to know what Radek is saying when he goes off into those tirades in Czech. I know he's swearing as profanely as he can, I just wish I spoke Czech. I think it'd be funny.

THE BEST HEADMISTRESS EVER

Got to season 2 episode "Need", my memory was re-jogged after about 5 minutes, and promptly skipped ahead to "Thor's Chariot".

"Need" is that lovely episode where Daniel sleeps with the some princess and they all become addicted to the sarcaphogus, and they're so evil now, ablooo bloooo. So even though it takes 20+ trips to the sarcaphogus in the space of a day or two to get addicted, there is no reason to let mortally or seriously wounded or disease-stricken individuals to use the drat thing once or twice?

Look, I know it's just fiction, but god dammit as someone with actual health problems, the preaching on that episode actively pisses me off to no end. Ugh. It's like assholes who have never experienced actual, real chronic pain for months on end from terrible injuries (not just "ouch I banged my knee tee hee") that seem to think you are a morally bankrupt cretin for needing weed to make the pain go away, if only for a little while.

This might be the only episode of Stargate to actually enrage me in a self-righteous way- I wear my pathetic nerd badge with shame.

Now, on the other hand, "Thor's Chariot" was awesome!

In the SG-1 episode "Tin Man", a robot dude makes robot copies of Sam, Daniel, Teal'c, and O'Neil. Robot Teal'c is messed up and tries to murder Robot O'Neil. The robot creator keeps calling Teal'c "different black". I always thought that was a reference to the racism of the show, but maybe it's not, who knows?

Are you sure you're not thinking of the episode with Rene Auberjonois as Space Hitler? He doesn't like Teal'c and everyone assumes because it's because he's a Jaffa like every other planet they've ever been to.

I just watched the first film and the first 3/4 episodes of SG1 and completely failed to get into it. Its even aged well but I dunno.

I think a lot of the reason is the writing. It feels a lot like Dr Who which I can't watch either.

When he talks it sounds like when a British person tries to do a bad American accent on TV, by sounding as boring and monotone as possible. He doesn't sound Canadian to me at all, but I'm also from the Midwest so I can't pick it up as easily

If you like seeing stargate actors in other movies check out A Dog's Breakfast.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0796314/
It seems like David Hewitt wanted to make a movie and basically roped in the people around him. It has:
McKay as main character
McKay's sister in the show and real life
Beckett without the accent
Taylea
Teal'c

I systematically binged through all of SG-1 a few years ago, in fact I think I caught up as season 10 was airing. I remember they were making a feature length stargate film set after the season 10 had ended? Did that ever happen and was it any good?

They made two. The first one wrapped up the retarded Ori plot, and was pretty stupid. But with a boat anchor of suck around your neck like the Ori arc what could anyone expect?

The second one was a time travel romp with Ba'al and was really quite good.

There were two SG1 movies. Ark of Truth wraps up the Ori storyline. Continuum involves Baal, and is therefore awesome. Both are good actually.

Are you forgetting the repliterminator and Teal'c's 5 minute cinematic running sequence? And how they defeat that chick from Firefly and V? By kicking over a table.

Because I'm cringing even thinking about Ark of Truth.

Okay so it was actually much, much better than I remembered. It would have been so easy to slip into bad sci fi (instead of just campy sci fi), and they avoided it. Bonus points for the super soaker fight at the end!

It's not that they decided to give up, it's that they'd managed to give themselves some hosed degenerative disease while trying to solve the cloning problem. It wasn't really mass suicide, it was more mass euthanasia. Better that than just loving off and leaving all their high-tech doomsday devices just lying around for any retarded caveman to find. loving ancients.
