Stargate farewell in your comics page today
 
My goodbye to Stargate in today's Candorville, in papers today (maybe in yours, if you get a newspaper):

I've largely avoided this forum for the past few years, because I realized early on I enjoy shows a lot more when I don't read the consensus opinions about them sucking. I won't go so far as to say I'd have enjoyed ST:VOY if I hadn't been glued to the forums (and nitpicking the hell out of it myself) the whole run, but it's definitely been true of the Stargates. That stuff colors how I see a show. So while SGU didn't fare too well here, it still entertained me for a few years, and I'll miss it.

Great strip. I'm currently in the middle of re-watching bits and pieces from SG-1, and I have to agree with you. I don't think I showed this franchise enough love when it was on, but you don't know what you got till it's gone.

I'm gonna miss Stargate. :(

That's a great strip, thanks for posting it Cartoonist. I see what you mean about the forums and enjoyment of a show and I think I've fallen victim to that as well from time to time.

The enormity of black people discussing stargate in those cloths...LOL I love it. Nice little comic.

You know it's true what you say. I would nitpick the show anyway but I imagine it's got to ruin it to be on a nitpicking extravaganza like a forum. VOY had alot of problems but I enjoyed it more (or less) when I wasn't as concerned with it's failing mechanics and mediocrity.
