Re: Stargate Continuum - Grading and Discussion

As I said, I'm not saying it should have been done in Continuum, and I don't hold the fact it holds to the usual conceit against it. It would just be interesting to see something like that, something different, happen. Basically, I'm thinking out loud.
Continuum is all they've got and they have to think of it that way since this could be the end of SG1 it's all of nothing.

Well, personally, I think I'd have preferred something else to be the last SG1 story. But if that's all we've got, it could have been worse.

To the comments about things slowly dissappearing in the beginning: My take on that is that Ba'al was making changes slowly, and each change net a dissappearance in their future. Just my 2 cents.

If Stargate Universe is greenlit it is possible that this'll be the last we see of SG1 although I hope not and I'm still looking forward to seeing this movie.

Or even, what if they accidently changed the timeline for their better, but someone else came by and told them it needed to change back? Do the story from the opposite perspective, with the other guy winning and changing the timeline, and just don't even try to explain it in Atlantis, just one week, all of a sudden everything is ever so slightly different.

You know what you just described? That DS9 Episode... Children of Time or whatever it was called, where "future" Odo stops the Defiant from crashing, saving Kira but "killing" all of the unborn children.

As a reset time travel episode, I think at the very least it had more of an impact that this one.

Re: Stargate Continuum - Grading and Discussion

Is there a reason this thread is even open before the dvd is available legally? Every person who has downloaded this should really be in jail, you know that, right?

Since when was copyright infringement a jailable offence? Fined, maybe.

Not true.

There are legally available promotional discs out there as we speak.

True. What part of "downloaded" did you not understand?

Allow me to reiterate the line, "Is there a reason this thread is even open before the dvd is available legally?".

The DVD is legally available. By the way.

Re: Stargate Continuum - Grading and Discussion

I liked it. Not the best thing the Stargate team ever produced but I found it highly entertaining. In the end that's all that really matters from a movie or tv show. Isn't it?
I stopped trying to nitpick any show or movie a long time ago. All that does is lessen the enjoyability of anything I watch. Sure there were things that could have been done better and things that don't work in science as we know it but, who gives a shit. Like I said, it was entertaining and didn't leave me groaning or disgusted.

I would have loved to have seen Don Davis given a bit more to do but, who knew when they were making this that it would be his Stargate swan song.

Here's hoping that there are more SG1 movies coming in the future.

Re: Stargate Continuum - Grading and Discussion

It was pretty good. All the fuss made about RDA in this movie I thought he would play a bigger role. I really liked the purple wormhole travel when the timeline was changing, it looked really cool.

The Tok'ra's city was pretty huge. From late SG1 I was under the impression that there weren't many of them left. Weird that there were no reps from the Free Jaffa at the de-snaking of Baal. The only person I can think of who would have been good would be Bratac...can't think of any senior Jaffa still alive.

The only thing it was missing was an Asgard name drop.

Is there a reason you didn't just notify the mods instead of pissing more vitriol on this thread?

Personally I think there's plenty of room for conflict, from the characters emotional state, the conflict between wanting to stay in a better place, but if that came at the price of something bad happening, say the whole Jaffa race being extinct.
I don't think even O'Neill would think twice about making a choice like that.
Doesn't even have to be something that big, could be something very personal, like Odo changing the timeline in Children of Time.
Exactly, there is plenty of dramatic potential in a situation like this. What if your dead wife was still alive in the new timeline but your friend's wife was dead instead? What if that baby you lost was still alive in the new timeline but Australia was at war with American and millions were dying everyday elsewhere? These are just random examples but its obvious there is plenty of dramatic potential in the 'what if the alternate timeline was actually better?' setup.
