Storyline

An alien similar to Ra appears out of the Stargate, killing five soldiers and kidnapping another, a year after the original Stargate mission. A new team is assembled, including some old members, and they go in search of the missing soldier in order to find out how Ra could still be alive. Meanwhile, the alien Goa'uld kidnap Sha're and Skaara, implanting them with symbiotes and making them Goa'uld hosts. Written by Lee Jamilkowski

Why'd they bother
8 September 2012 | by lothos-370-690020See all my reviews

From what I can tell this "improved retelling" is just a child friendly version of the original. With all the after watershed moments removed, to make way for some woeful special effects.

Given how fickle the American television giants are when it comes to continuing with Sci Fi shows, the fact that this pilot gained it enough popularity for a permanent series, when many doubted it, is surely evidence enough that the original doesn't need "improving. After all expectations must've been high given the success of the original film.

PS it started in 1997 and finished in 2007, ten years by my admittedly not perfect maths, but even I can work out that Doctor Who, which started in 1963 and ran uninterrupted until 1989, not counting the current series, lasted 16 years longer than SG1. If your gonna lie to sell your product, at least lie convincingly.
