Re: Stargate Continuum - Grading and Discussion

Watching it now - pretty good. Nice to get back to proper SG vs Goa'uld action (I gave up on the series halfway through season 9 - the Ori stuff bored the shit out of me). This is better than anything since about season 6.

Baal is still brilliant (and *so* obviously an incarnation of Dr Who's Master) - and I love his outfit. Must do that one at a convention.

Ketesh is much more interesting than Vala. I'd do her, no question.

If only that rule would apply to the "real" Carter.

Re: Stargate Continuum - Grading and Discussion

Quetesh was pretty cool, she would have made a good recurring villain on the show. Unfortunately since this was an altered timeline we probably won't be seeing her again.

Carter is that illusive kind of woman blessed with both great intelligence and eternal beauty. Personally being technobabbled at would still be a good day.

Re: Stargate Continuum - Grading and Discussion

Just got the DVD & watched it, I loved it. The first bit of Stargate I've seen in about 4 years that's really given me the old 'wow' feeling. Very impressed.

And I don't care if it was telegraphed as fuck, I laughed out loud at the 'off the top of your head' line

Re: Stargate Continuum - Grading and Discussion

^Yeah that sword was sweet, I want one

Well the one annoyance for me was Ra, not only did they completely gloss over how Ba'al got the Supreme System Lord to bow down to him when the other System Lords could never have accomplished it combined, and that the actor looked nothing like Ra.

Unless Ba'al waited out Ra's host and prevented him from finding another one in this timeline. In the film it was hinted he more or less wore the skin of the host and nothing else because the 12,000 year old Goa'uld was now humanoid instead of snake like, something akin to the final "old age" stage of the actual creature.

Other than that it was great, got the DVD now.

^The actor who played Ra here also played him in "Moebius". It is consistent with Richard Dean Anderson and Michael Shanks not looking exactly like Kurt Russell and James Spader.

Stargate Command is even under a different mountain in the series.

Re: Stargate Continuum - Grading and Discussion

Yeah but even with the actor change, we're supposed to believe that Ba'al went from being a second rate System Lord to conquering Ra's territory/forces when in the 'real' timeline the combined military force of the Goa'uld including Sokar and the pre-ascended Anubis could not defeat him.
