Re: Is the Stargate movie required viewing before seeing SG-1?
Just wondering if I can understand the SG-1 well enough, if I haven't seen the movie.
I think would prefer to see SG-1 first and have the tv actors as the characters in my head, and maybe see the movie after I'm done with the show. Seeing the movie actors first then moving to the show might be too jarring for me.
Think of the movie as an alternate universe. The same general events happened, but there are differences, especially related to Ra.
You can watch the series without having seen the movie. But there are a few differences.
