Re: What season does Stargate SG-1 get "good"?

There's plenty of good eps. in the first season and the chemistry of the cast was there from the start.

Willaim Devane of course appeared in The West Wing, if memory serves as Secretary of State Berryhill.
And he played President Kennedy in The Missiles of October, and he was the President in The Dark Knight Rises. (Does that mean the Nolan Batfilms take place in the Stargate universe?)

If so, then why was Teal'c working for Bane?

Nolan would say aliens don't exist in his hyper realistic Batman universe.

I keep hearing how SG-1 started very weakly but got much better as it went along. Is there a fan consensus about what season SG-1 started to get good, like how nearly all fans agree TNG season 3 was when that show became great?
The short answer is no, there really isn't any consensus. Personally I've never felt there was a huge fluctuation in quality at any real point in the series, except perhaps between season 7 and season 8, which in my opinion were the best and worst seasons of the show. That isn't a p[particularly widely held view though.

Re: What season does Stargate SG-1 get "good"?

I thought it was really coming together mid-way season 2. By season 3 was entering great territory. Seasons 4-6 I felt were very solid despite some cast change that happens.

*Note: I'm watching for first time but just starting season 10

Re: What season does Stargate SG-1 get "good"?

I think Torment of Tantalus is really the only standout episode of Season 1, but there are lots more nearly perfect episodes starting in the second season.

Well, it does set up many things which become important to the lore of the series specifically and the franchise in general.

Re: What season does Stargate SG-1 get "good"?

Well many consider it to be a top S1 epsiode. As for the entire show maybe not as many consider it a top episode

Re: What season does Stargate SG-1 get "good"?

There were some abysmal episodes in season 1 (Emancipation, Broca Divide), but I think the show settled quite quickly, much faster than any Trek, with the possible exception of TOS. I tend to think of the last two seasons as a separate show, and while I like Mitchell and Vala, I don't like the Ori storyline much. So rarely for me, I like the stand-alone episodes better than the Ori arc episodes.

I really enjoyed RDA's O'Neill in the first 6 or so seasons. After that he became so cynical and irritating, that for me it was actually a relief to see him go. My biggest gripe with the later seasons was that they had to use devious means to ensure that Carter wasn't promoted to leader of SG-1, which IMO she should have been.

Hey, SG1 fans!

Is this a good filler/important episodes list?

Re: What season does Stargate SG-1 get "good"?

I only skimmed through that, but yeah, it seems a pretty solid list of the important episodes and the non-essential ones.

Re: What season does Stargate SG-1 get "good"?

I'd say the end of season 1 then it ran on high for the next few. Season 5 it started dying but I think with Jonus season 6 really kicks some life back into the show.

Then it's just downhill from there.
