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

That was partly his performance, but it was also the writers. A lot of the character's nuance was lost as the series went along, for better or worse.

See the Stargate movie because it will just add to your enjoyment of SG-1.

And the series starts out with O'Neill still not fully past that tragedy, but as time passes he moves on more and more.

Although I didn't like how much RDA took it to the point of caricature in later seasons, taking Jack from someone who had little patience for intellectuals to someone who played dumb sometimes but was an amateur astronomer to someone who really was pretty dense and had no astronomical knowledge to speak of.
This is why we ignore those seasons.

They dropped the ball by not carrying Ferretti and Kawalski on right through the run of the show.
I'm pretty sure they could have gotten French Stewart, too

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

I seem to remember reading that they they did get the original mvie actors for the likes of Kawalski but didn't think they could afford them for a weekly TV show hence why they killed him. But he dropped out for some reason and the role was recast but by then it was too late to change the scripts etc.

I chalk it up to the progressive brain damage he suffered over the course of the series.
Between:
1) devolving in "The Broca Divide"
2) being exposed to mind-altering substances in "Hathor", "Seth", "The Devil You Know", AND "Paradise Lost"
3) being exposed to mind-altering devices in "The Fifth Race", "Holiday", "Legacy", "Upgrades", "Beneath the Surface", "The Light", AND "The Lost City" (and having his brain tapped into in "Tin Man" and "Foothold")
4) being put into suspended animation in "Out Of Mind", "The Lost City", and "The Gamekeeper" (along with being trapped in virtual reality)
5) getting invaded with nanotech in "Brief Candle" AND "Message in a Bottle"
6) suffering hypothermia in "Solitudes" and "Tangent", as well as hypoxia in the latter
7) suffering from a deadly virus in "Frozen"
and 8) being subject to multiple sarcophagus sessions in "Abyss" (as well as being temporarily taken over by a symbiote)

it's no wonder he wound up a drooling idiot.

That's why he was promoted to general.

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

Just out of curiosity, did anyone bother noticing that the person who posted this was asking about a series they hadn't watched, so all that crap that's been posted about later seasons, about character stuff, and especially the post right above this, has spoiled the fuck out of the show?

Great job there.

See the film because it's a good, entertaining film. Personally, I liked Russell's O'Neil better but liked Shanks' Jackson better. Wish Teal'c had been in the film.

Well as O'Neill would say. "That's O'Neill with two l's, there is another O'Neil but he has no sense of humour."
Movie O'Neil was depressed and suicidal after his son had accidentally killed himself with O'Neil's own gun. I never expected him to cracking be jokes every minute.
I thought that wisecracking O'Neill very much showed up here and there in the Stargate movie. The character IS in that film, he's just depressed. The events of the film help him move on, and he turns into the TV show character.

For me, it was the other way round. The show increased my enjoyment of the film.

Not required, but it helps. Plus, it's on Netflix steaming right now.

^Netflix steaming? Is that the adults-only service?

They show the REALLY uncensored version of "Children of the Gods."

The movie was ok, but the series is much better. I actually think Shanks is a much better Daniel Jackson than Spader, and Kurt Russell's O'Neil is very inferior to RDA's O'Neil. Its worth a watch I guess, but the series that came after is much better.

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

Yea, the movie is similar (in my mind) to an "Unaired pilot" Special Feature. Like when they put together a Pilot and decide to retool it by recasting some or all the roles, and switching a few things around. When looked at in that respect, it's actually pretty excellent, since alot of those unaired Pilots aren't that great, and Stargate is a decent movie in it's own right
