Roland Emmerich's remake of Stargate is likely not happening now

  • JoBlo
When Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin developed Stargate over twenty years ago (shit, really?), they had envisioned a trilogy of Stargate films but "because of what happened with the rights and changes at the studio and all kinds of strange things, we never got to do parts two and three.” The Stargate franchise continued to thrive however when Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner...

New Stargate trilogy will let Roland Emmerich finish the story he started

Stargate Sg-1: was longevity its curse?

facebook

twitter

google+

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.

Falling Skies season 5 episode 3 review: Hatchlings

Falling Skies seems to be making good on the promise to go darker, but when are the Masons going to become vulnerable?

This review contains spoilers.

5.3 Hatchlings

Falling Skies has always had a wide streak of earnest, emotional, wide-eyed melodrama to it. Particularly in the beginning, it seemed that there was no problem the surving humans couldn't overcome without any major loss of life. Sure, some extras might get fried, but the Mason family and all their close friends would slide through without any real damage. When it was time for the Masons or some associate to suffer a loss, it would always come in the biggest, most dramatic way possible. Someone dies to save the group, being a hero, knowing full well they're going to sacrifice themselves to save everyone else. Or, alternately, someone dies because they turn into a bad guy, and all bad guys and Benedicts Arnold must be punished.

Stargate Sg-1 Retrospective Review – Children Of The Gods

Out of the three franchises with ‘Star’ in the title, Stargate is the most overlooked. While it has its dedicated fan base it never reached the heights of the others despite its 17 season run (admittedly this was over 3 shows but still). For me though it was the one I loved the most, from the first episode I saw (Tin Man) right up to the finale of the second spin off Stargate Universe, this show just clicked with me.

Now I’m going to take a look at each episode, right back from the first. I aim to do one of these a week, so with the amount of episodes produced this should conclude in 2076 or thereabouts. I did give a lot of thought to starting with the original movie but decided that due to the recasts and the different production team I would just start with Sg-1. Maybe I’ll

You Have a Go: Stargate Sg-1 Saves the World at Cheyenne Mountain

When Stargate Sg-1 premiered in the summer of 1997, it was a transitional phase for genre television. The episodic model was the norm and had been mastered by several Star Trek series during that decade. Even so, forward-thinking visionaries like Chris Carter (The X-Files) and J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5) were experimenting with a different model. Adapted from the 1994 Roland Emmerich feature Stargate, this series balances the old-school formula with a focus on continuity. Creators Jonathan Glassner and Brad Wright make limited tweaks yet stay rooted in the “mission of the week” structure. The foundation for this approach is the Cheyenne Mountain facility, the site for Stargate Command. Commonly known as the S.G.C, this high-security fictional location is set in Colorado Springs, Colorado. This base feels like it comes from another TV era, but it serves a key purpose in this show. The facility grounds the series in reality

Nikita Promos & Photos: Alex Outside of Division

I'm actually really psyched about the return of Nikita on January 27. I've been impressed with the first half of the season and have been enjoying a show that's not The CW's usual fare. When we last saw a new episode at the tail end of 2010, Thom had been framed as the mole inside Division and Alex had accidentally killed him, which allowed her to graduate from the training program.

On January 27 we'll see Alex outside and on her own, set up in a nice apartment and carrying out assignments for Percy and Michael. But now that she's on the outside, she'll have a lot more free time to spend with Nikita, trying to take Division down. Below are two promos and photos for the January 27 new episode of Nikita.
