Re: stargate sg1 season 6-10 worth watching?

I didn't care for the last two seasons, but 6 - 8 had some really good episodes.

Re: stargate sg1 season 6-10 worth watching?

Seasons 6&7 are almost as good as the early stuff.

Season 8 is just "okay." That said, "Moebius" is a lot of fun and the true series finale, as far as I'm concerned.

Seasons 9&10 are, IMO, two of the worst seasons of SF&F television ever. And, yes, I'm fully aware there's been some truly awful garbage to come along over the years.

"Hollow" are the Ori.

Your opinion is invalid once you say Moebius is fun and not "complete garbage".

Re: stargate sg1 season 6-10 worth watching?

Seasons 6-8 each have their rough patches, but are never as bad as, say, season 1 or 2.

Seasons 9-10 (along with the DVD movies) are essentially a spin-off which pales compared to the original.

Atlantis has a great first season, and then falls to pieces after that. Universe has a terrible first season, and I stopped watching it after that (and then it was cancelled after season two, on a cliffhanger, apparently).

Re: stargate sg1 season 6-10 worth watching?

I think all ten seasons are worth watching, the final two are different to be sure but there's still alot of good stories in the final two seasons.

Re: stargate sg1 season 6-10 worth watching?

Season 6 is great once you get used to Jonas and Season 7 is amazing, especially the finale. Season 8 has some really great moments, especially Citizen Joe. Season 9 and 10 feel different, but that is because of RDA leaving the show and Claudia Black becoming a regular. Regardless, they are still good. I think they could have gotten more life out of it if they split off and became the proposed "Stargate Command" show instead of just being two more seasons of SG-1.

Re: stargate sg1 season 6-10 worth watching?

I enjoy all of SG1 to one degree or another. The later seasons do have a lower average quality about them, but they are still fun and they still contain some gems. I'd recommend watching it all.

Re: stargate sg1 season 6-10 worth watching?

I just started watching season 4 of Atlantis and am confused why many people here seem to think season 1 is the only good season of Atlantis and the only one worth watching? I know i am in the minority but seasons 2-4 have been just as good or at least close to as good in fact it does a good job improving upon sg1.

Re: stargate sg1 season 6-10 worth watching?

Whether you like season six as a whole depends on how much you enjoy Corin Nemec as Michael Shanks' temp.

Seasons seven and eight are SG-1 more or less as it was, except that O'Niell wasn't allowed to do episodes like Learning Curve or A Hundred Days anymore. Personally I don't see how anyone who enjoyed seasons 1-5 wouldn't enjoy this too, nor could I see how they wouldn't want to know how that overall storyline of the go'a'uld and replicators come out.

As said before, seasons nine and ten are really a different show. In one sense, the Ori are the go'a'uld taken more seriously (except that the general goofiness makes it hard to get "serious.") Whether you enjoy it depends very much I think on whether you like Ben Browder and Claudia Black, which I did. Especially Black.

Re: stargate sg1 season 6-10 worth watching?

S6: still great!
S7: pretty forgettable
S8: slight return to form and a pretty ending to the series
S9/10: A.K.A. The Next Generation. it's worth watching but it's definitely not as good as the proper series.

Because seasons 2-5 are garbage, simple as that. The Ancients are no longer cool, they are annoying and lame and stupid for such an advance race. Then Replicators... I don't need to say anymore about that.

FoxConnect.com has all the seasons of SG1 and Atlantis for $6 a piece.

I've never finished Atlantis. I can't get through the first season without getting bored.

There are about -510 good Atlantis episodes out of 66-70 I have seen.

Re: stargate sg1 season 6-10 worth watching?

I thought Atlantis got off to a decent start in Season One but then slowly started going off the rails starting in Season Two. I completely lost interest after Season Three.

As for SG-1, when I was watching through the show for the first time on Netflix a couple of years ago, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed Season Six. It seemed to have a bit of a bad reputation just based on what I'd read about it before, but I thought it was pretty much on par with what came before it. Season Seven was still pretty good, too. It was really Season Eight where the show was starting to get pretty long in the tooth.

I loved the shot in the arm that Vala and Mitchell (particularly Vala) gave the show in its final two seasons, but in retrospect I think it would have been better if they'd ended SG-1 with "Moebius" and spun the storyline for the ninth and tenth seasons off into a new show. Which, I think, may have been the original plan...

Re: stargate sg1 season 6-10 worth watching?

I was particularly fond of Atlantis season 1 because of its tone. The expedition was completely cut off from Earth in a galaxy where they didn't really understand the rules yet, facing the nigh unstoppable wraith. The season felt like it had a well-defined arc from arriving in Atlantis and awakening the wraith, leading to the inevitable attack at the end. Taken as a whole, it's probably my favorite single season of the franchise.

For me, the problem with Atlantis post season 1 was that the show never really felt like it knew where it was going to me. The constant cast changes and the introduction of newer antagonists felt like desperation to me. That's not to say that I thought the average quality of the episodes went down over time, but rather that the show felt somewhat less than the sum of its parts. Despite the huge body count racked up by the end, the team felt no closer to achieving their goals than they had at the start of season two. Standalone episodes had a feel to me of "we've already seen this".
