One of the few good Sci-Fi series on television
15 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I keep hearing people say that they have problems with this show but I've enjoyed every episode. I watched the original stargate sg1 when it was on show time, and then occasionally when it moved to sci-fi, so I'm familiar with the stories universe. Maybe had I been more into the original series, and had expected this series to more closely match the sg1, I wouldn't enjoy it as much.

I've also say the show is a knock-off of star trek voyager, but I don't think so at all. Yes they share some the same points of trying to get home and being in unfamiliar territory, but there the similarities end. If you like stargate, star trek voyager, or great sci-fi in general then this show is worth checking out.
