2016 is fast drawing to a close, but there’s still enough time for an original Netflix series to make its premiere. And so, following the recent stealth release of Zal Batmanglij’s sci-fi mystery The Oa, the online streamer is on the verge of debuting Travelers.
Cut from the same sci-fi cloth as The Oa, Travelers is a 12-part series hatched by Brad Wright, best known for his work across both Stargate Sg-1 and Stargate: Atlantis. Set in the distant future, the elevator pitch involves a crack team of Travelers who possess the ability to send someone’s consciousness back in time to inhabit a body in the 21st century – think of Wolverine’s jaunt back in time from Days of Future Past.

Jason Momoa has been a busy guy of late. Since moving from small cable TV (Stargate: Atlantis) to Big cale TV (Game Of Thrones) it seems that both the industry at large and Momoa himself have been scrambling to figure out what, exactly, to do with the talented brute. His mass appeal is obvious and being carried out with blockbuster roles such as the upcoming Aquaman but Momoa clearly has the urge to prove himself in smaller indie far as well whether in recent writer-director effort Road To Paloma, Ana Lily Amirpour's The Bad Batch or upcoming effort Sugar Mountain. Momoa plays the heavy here as a violent man owed ten thousand dollars by a local youth. The youth - having no way of coming...

After a strong start, 10 seasons and multiple spin-offs took Stargate Sg-1 further and further away from its original premise...
I’ve recently had time to catch-up on the staple of afternoon television when I was a lad, Stargate Sg-1. First launched in 1997, it ran for ten seasons and it’s aged surprisingly well, in no small part due to it being heavily character-driven and fairly horror-focussed for its first two runs. This is most likely thanks to its first five seasons airing on sex-and-guts cable channel Showtime, while its later seasons aired the more clean-cut Syfy channel in the Us. All in all, it’s rip-roaring sci-fi; the kind of ‘explore and fight with interesting plots and great character arcs’ storytelling that filled the void left by successive Star Trek series which never quite captured the wonder of the unknown in the way that the Original Series or The Next Generation did. »
