Good Lord - this is wierd. I'm way ahead of all og you for a change. SG-Alantis is done and SG-U is on it's third season. In fact - it's so pase here that they are doing a SGU marathon for new years and showing all of season 2 in sequence.
I have to say that I prefer the Star Gate over the Star Trek. Don't get me wrong - I'm a Treker (note - not a Trekie) from the very first episode - I can remember watching it and my Dad saying what drivel it was. (I was 5 or 6 at the time) But the SG milieu is much better. The movies were barely watchable, the first was just fair, the others went downhill, but Dean Anderson did something magical with them. Like the BBC he assumed the watchers were not idiots who would have trouble with the plot of a Bay Watch episode and he managed to work to an overall story line that required you to get involved with the whole thing. And - he left when the getting was good - leave 'em smiling.
Have you seen the latest from that 'studio' - "Sanctuary"
The star is Amada Tapping - Major Samatha Carter from the SG world.
