Re: Is the Stargate movie required viewing before seeing SG-1?

^that line of thinking works, and explains the recasting, and the minor changes in backstory and whatnot compared to SG-1, but there's still a good chunk of it that's required. The first few episodes, in particular, are a fairly direct sequel to what happened in the movie, and starting the program up again for real, so still gotta say that it's required, and more than an unaired pilot.

Plus, if you're going to commit to watching 10 seasons' worth of a TV show, is 2 hours to watch the movie it's based on really a drain?
