Storyline

General Hammond summons Colonel Jack O'Neill out of retirement to embark on a secret rescue mission. O'Neill confesses that he disobeyed orders to destroy the Stargate on Planet Abydos, and that scientist Daniel Jackson may still be alive. Arriving on Abydos with his team, O'Neill meets up once again with the scientist, who has discovered a giant elaborate cartouche in hieroglyphics. All signs point to the fact that this is a map of many Stargates that exist throughout the galaxy - a development that makes the dream of the SG-1 team to travel throughout the universe in time a reality.

Goofs

The characters of Kasuf, Skaara and Sha'Re (originally from Stargate, the movie this series is based off of) appear through the series in various episodes. In the movie, all three characters spoke virtually no English whatsoever, however in the TV series (in which the First Season is set one year after the movie) all three speak perfect English. It is possible that Daniel Jackson taught them English during the year-long span between movie and TV series, but it is highly unlikely they learned it so well in such a short span of time.

Stargate SG-1 is a tv show on Showtime, based on the movie, Stargate. The first thought that might occur in your mind is that it's a cheap TV rip of a decent movie. Incorrect. What's so excellent about Stargate SG-1 is the fact that the gate can be controlled and led to countless other Stargates. There are many SG teams, the head being is the Stargate SG-1 team, led by Colonel Jack O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson) who explores the universe, and contacts other worlds to make friends with other races. They also search for technology on how to defeat the Goa'uld. The Goa'uld are a parasitic, snake-like race that take a human host and use his/her body for their own dark purposes.

The Colonel's team is followed by Major Sam Carter (Amanda Tapping), Dr. Daniel Jackson (Michael Shanks), and the Jaffa, Teal'c (Christopher Judge).

Colonel Jack O'Neill is very funny in the series, always cracking jokes at unusual times and is very cool headed under dangerous conditions. Major Carter, who was joined with a Tok'ra without permission, is the only woman of the group and also a very smart scientist who is able to ascertain and understand technical information that the Colonel can't. Dr. Daniel Jackson, whose wife was taken by the Goa'uld for Apophis' queen, is the archeologist of the group. He is always deciphering ancient text to try to find more about other worlds to better understand our own. Teal'c is the warrior who defied Apophis to free his people from slavery. The Goa'uld are considered to be gods by his people of Chulak, however, he knows this is not true. General Hammond (Don B. Davis), leads the Stargate Command in a top secret, underground base in Cheyenne.

Along the way, they meet the Tok'ra, a group in which their symbiote's live with their hosts in harmony. The Asgard, a race of typical alien-looking creatures with incredible power. The Nox, who prefer to be left alone and to not take arms. It's a lot like Star Trek without any major space travel.

Simply put, it's a great science fiction/action series with characters that are funny, evil, and complicated.

Dangerous Minds, Robocop, Nightmare on Elm Street: The Series, Police Academy: The Series...all of these were bad TV shows based on movies. I don't think there has been any other successful TV show based on a movie (besides Highlander, MASH). None are as enjoyable as Stargate SG-1.
