Re: Alien Nation fans?

Didn't SG-1 also imply, though, that the Stargate film still happened exactly as we saw it, though in a parallel reality (which they were aware of)? I think O'Neill once said something about another version of him that spelled his name with only one L and had no sense of humor.

^I'm not sure that particular in-joke had anything to do with alternate realities. But alternate realities are a sufficiently established part of the SG-verse on TV that it's easy enough to treat the movie as one.

There's an SG-1 tie-in novel that tries to reconcile the portrayal of Ra in the movie with the portrayal of the Goa'uld in the series, but it didn't work for me.

The crux of the show, though, was in the tension the release of aliens -- who are stronger, smarter, and breed fast than humans -- caused the population of Los Angeles.
Just like all humanoid aliens And like the rest of them, except for Kes, their adult lifespan is twice as long, before puberty that is. The show also deals with some Newcomers concerns of losing their unique culture as their people assimilated

Re: Alien Nation fans?

On my slow rewatch and coming out of The Butler this summer I am getting a serious Forrest Gump vibe from George's elaborate back story as a slave and internee.

Re: Alien Nation fans?

I have dark suspicions that one the posters upthread isn't returning Netflix's Udara Legacy disk. It's the last in the movie series and I've been waiting for three months to finish my second rewatch.

You know who you are, curse you!

The opening theme is fun to sing along with.

Especially if you include Matt's angry snarl just before the end. Lovely bit of editing, that.

Trivia about the Alien Nation theme: The lyrics are the names of Kenneth Johnson's family members in reverse. "Ee take naz nahj" is an inversion of "Katie Johnson," his daughter's name, and "Na soos gah nil pah" is an inversion of "Susan Appling," his wife's name. "Na soos ka" is also Tenctonese for "I love you," implying that the theme is actually a Newcomer love song.
