Hi guys, recently I was hanging out in that Star Trek thread and the discussion veered towards Stargate at one point. This led me to looking up Gateworld for the first time in years and realizing they're organizing a rewatch of the whole franchise considering MGM recently took Stargate out in the backyard and put a slug in its brains. And it's starting like right now
. I'm gonna watch along, so I'm making this thread so I don't have to go hang out on Gateworld's creepy forums to discuss it (seriously, that place is full of nothing but shippers and fanfiction writers). I suggest you join me so I'm not in here talking to myself!
Here's Gateworld's Rewatch central and schedule and stuff:
Basically we're doing a season a month (which means we'll be done in December 2012). Also the original movie was supposed to be last week. I watched it. We can talk about it.
If you're like me, you're gonna watch an episode every weekday, starting tomorrow (August 1st). The entire franchise is on Netflix, or you could watch the DVDs if you have them. I do. Seriously, the first season of SG-1 was literally the first DVD I ever bought.
Since this is specifically a let's-watch-something type of thread with a schedule, we should put shit that happens after the point the rewatch is at between spoiler tags, because people who haven't watched it before shouldn't be spoiled. I hope some of those people show up and start watching. Half the fun in these things is seeing their reactions.
Also, new people: the series gets better than the movie is. I mean the movie isn't terrible
, it's just average. It gets better on rewatches too, I found. Knowing all the backstory going in, it just seems a lot more meaningful to see how it all began. Also, it's not Kurt Russell and James Spader in the series, if you were wondering. O'Neill becomes an awesome character once he's recast.
So yeah. Do this shit!
