Stargate SG-1 Watchathon – ‘Children of the Gods, Pt. 2’

The pilot episode for Stargate SG-1 concludes in “Children of the Gods, Pt. 2”. I’m not sure if these were the episodes I saw way back when, but if they were, I can understand why I wasn’t gung-ho on the series. It’s not that it’s a bad pilot, it’s just that I found little to get really excited about. I supposed if you were a big fan of the movie Stargate it would be really neat to see the further adventures of O’Neill and company (sadly lacking any French Stewart, or is that happily?) but to me there wasn’t really any ‘oomph’ to these episodes.

Sure we get the beginnings of character development and the intro of Teal’C, but here there isn’t much to work with. I really like the idea of the Stargate but it’s probably too much to ask to explore those possibilities right off the bat. Instead we get the writers setting things up for later. I will give them props for putting things in place which will payoff in season 2., but if I didn’t know it had lasted 10 seasons, I would have thought it didn’t last long.

Not bad, but not great.

  1. Interseting since the pilot episode is one of those that I could watch any time. 🙂 I think I manly like the way the team forms and the way the characters are introduced. Okay yeah Sam’s first few lines were horrible and over the top but still I like her. I also enjoyed the scene where Teal’c helps them out of the dungeon and the whole “I have no where to go”, “for this you can stay at my place” – conversation. But then I’ve always preferred character focus over plot focus.

    I’m curious what episodes you’ve liked the most so far?
