Re: What do Star Trek fans think of Stargate?

So from people who had watched Star Trek before they watched Stargate what did you think of the show when it came on? The first episode I watched was Grace I was wondering what kind of show this was and what it was but I thought it kind of had a Star Trek feeling to it. I found it to be wierd at first but I soon liked the show as much as I like Star Trek. So what do you think about the show?
It took me a long time to get into Stargate. I remember checking out "Children of the Gods" shortly after it premiered, and was bored. So it took me a while to get back into it and I checked out the occassional episode here or there.

I liked the Goau'ld, the use of mythology, and the SG-1 team was okay enough, though over time RDA became too snarky for my tastes. SG-1 felt too lightweight at times, but over time I came to appreciate the lighter tone a little more; there's nothing wrong with having some space adventures with less gray areas between heroes and villains.

I really didn't become a fulltime watcher until the last 2 seasons, and pretty much have only watched season 9 all the way through. I stuck with Atlantis a little better; I thought it's pilot and first season were pretty good. And with Universe, I appreciated what they were trying to do in changing up the tone, but the show was too much of a slow burn out the gate.

I don't like Stargate as much as Star Trek, though it's like comfort food. It's entertaining enough, usually with a nice mix of action, adventure, and humor.
