i fuckin love the music in SG1

the music they used when theyre just quietly showing the SGC before poo poo goes to poo poo with the drumming and stuff

usually interrupted by a sardonic joke from jack or UNSCHEDULED OFFWORLD ACTIVATION BOOP BOOP

**team immediately drops breakfast spoons and runs 2 General Grandpa**

jw, if they merely looked like psychotic wackos with glowing eyes what would you assume

Like if you were deaf but you're mowing the lawn and your neighbor apophis wants to borrow your rake, and you know he means the good new one

NEIGHBOR, KREE! *eyes glow*

yeah tbh I'm just gonna get the guy the rake instead of wondering if I missed the sound his eyeballs made when they very meanly started glowing at me

YES! I've started watching SG1 again for the 100th time. I still don't remember them ever explaining why everyone speaks English even though the goa'uld left earth thousands of years before english was even a thing.

lol in early episodes they dont explain it and dr jackson is translating for them IIRC

they rightfully abandoned that idea because what the gently caress is the point of richard dean anderson if he cant be the best man he can be and use his beautiful voice and speak english

honestly children of the gods was a litmus test, they wanted to see if boobs or english was a more effective method of story telling and i think they made the right call tbQh (this is not real btw, its just that its still page 1 and we need to mention the boobs)

lol haha. i remember telling my dad abt this show when it came out. he and i always watched the other star* franchises and he was the one that made me a nerd so ofc i was super excited to show him. tbh he really liked it (macguyvers sarcastic quips and cool action and he liked the movie etc) but tbh i think his interest was genuinely increased by the boobs

later i found out (thru observation) that he and i both have an eye for lithe brunettes w nice hair

anyway, thanks ma'am for providing a common ground beyond pew pew for father and son to probably bond over, yechh

this is why SG1 is imho one of the best shows\franchises of all time

they had zero qualms about being silly & self aware but tbh they could make you cry because the actors and cast are just really good

Lmao

When they find the ancient LAN party room in the basement and decide that playing Ancient Age of Empires is Not A Bad Idea

They got dumb lucky that they found actors that ended up being basically best friends and also I mean Jason Momoa is just a dreamboat

God drat watching those guys goon around the universe making fun of ronon for being chewie and Rodney getting so mad that he didn't get to be ladies man captain Kirk hahah

Atlantis probably should have been a bad spinoff

E; in fact the goon that mentioned their bad guys being terrible- yeah I saw 20 seconds of an episode once, saw a bad guy and Rodney McKay and legitimately couldn't believe a show revolved around that.

In all fairness it takes a minute to realize the show is really about 3 friends playing a game of co op with each other and also sometimes including their Scottish friend <3

it was pretty cool to watch the system lords try to adapt to the humans just like the humans were X-Coming their way thru the system lords

as a kid that also played a shitload of xcom back then the parallels did not go unnoticed. SG1 did exactly what youd do in that game lol. pick up the enemy poo poo and bring it home to figure it out then use it against them

lol, they did care because firing 9mm blanks was more expensive at time of shooting than firing 5.7 blanks, or whatever those p90s were firing

that is what i have heard and honestly i believe it

Statutory Ape

Bucnasti posted:

I think it was the other way around, they had to import the P90 rounds and make their own blanks, and importing the rounds was a hassle because they’re considered armor piercing and strictly controlled. That’s why they switched back to MP5s for half a season at one point, they couldn’t get the ammo.

i dont think i actually saw any good source on this info tbh- im actually just remembering stuff people were posting about in the SG1 thread in TVIV like 10 years ago. your version sounds just as likely as mine

otoh FN lost that contract so maybe their poo poo was more affordable because of whatever was going on in afganistan and iraq or some poo poo sucking down 9mm. or equally likely some american politican scared ammo buyers into buying more ammo

the point is, the p90 is a cooler choice for a gun for the show even if they kinda lucked into it

also every time i use it in any video game now i get to pretend im in sg1

Why don't all SG teams embark from and return to an off world site? It's super risky dialling random planets from earth. That would solve the black hole episode, a bunch of disease episodes etc.

On that note I want a stargate series about the alpha site or the first off world colony. It's a shame we didn't get to see what the rest of the sgc were doing.

When the Gould started flying to earth I guess that mattered less

even if a modern SG game never happens somebody should really just steal the entirety of the concept and make the gate a fuckin square and call it a day

So I tried watching Atlantis for the first time after loving SG-1 for years and I bounced off the first two episodes pretty hard. Does it get... better? It felt like a terrible cheap knockoff of SG-1.

the first season is rough imho

season 2 gets way more interesting & fun i think
