Is there a reason this thread is even open before the dvd is available legally? Every person who has downloaded this should really be in jail, you know that, right?
Is there a reason you didn't just notify the mods instead of pissing more vitriol on this thread?
Lady,


Seriously, stop trolling me.
I fail to see how asking you a legitimate question (which you have yet to answer) constitutes trolling.

The two of you need to take your tete-a-tete offline.

The thread is allowed because of the aforementioned legal means at obtaining the movie on DVD. Obviously, there are going to be illegal means, discussion of which is not permitted. So far it doesn't appear that has been violated. Discussion is concentrated upon the movie itself, and the title pretty clearly indicates spoiler material is inside. Ergo, there' nothing else to be done.

So back to the Continuum......

Re: Stargate Continuum - Grading and Discussion

Well, like Jack would say: "Oh for crying out loud..."

I saw it.

Some things were cool. Other stuff, not so much. More convenient circular time travel-y fun. Will post a more detailed review later.

Re: Stargate Continuum - Grading and Discussion

I voted #4, Very Good

I really enjoyed this episode, ok, big reset, still, it was a fun romp. It was great to see everyone back together. I did feel though that the resolution was a bit anticlamtic. Also, we've never seen time ripple slowly in the SG universe, it has always been sudden, so this goes against what we've seen before in the series. The first person to dissapear should have been Mitchell at the very least. The whole slowly dissapearing thing didn't make sense compared to what we've seen in the series.

Anyways, I REALLY liked the design of that Tok'ra city!!!! THAT IMO is what Atlantis should have looked like! All the translucent buildings, glowing brightly, Atlantis should have looked like that.

Re: Stargate Continuum - Grading and Discussion

I thought it was very good. I haven't been this happy with Stargate since season 8 of SG-1. It really felt like a story from the stronger years of the series. I also enjoyed seeing some of the old characters, system lords, etc.

One minor gripe I had. It seemed to me that Ba'al allowed Teal'c to establish a free Jaffa nation in the alternate timeline, so that SG-1 couldn't play the 'free Jaffa nation' card when trying to enlist his help, yet they still do that and it works! Not sure what's going on there.

Anyway, a great tv movie for the fans, better than The Ark Of Truth. I just hope there's more SG-1 on the horizon...

Re: Stargate Continuum - Grading and Discussion

What brings it down for me is the complete ignoring of the episode "Dominion."

I can understand retcon, but forgetting it ever existed? Doesn't quite work for me.

You mean the death of the Ba'al clones? Mitchell said he was worried that there could be more of them still alive.

No, I mean the death of the Ba'al symbiote. I admit, it's been a while since I've seen that episode, but IIRC, the clones didn't have the symbiote, just the original. And in "Dominion," that symbiote ended up in Adria. So the Ba'al symbiote was already dead.

Didn't Ba'al kill all of the clones with the symbiote poison? That would suggest that they did have them.

Re: Stargate Continuum - Grading and Discussion

It helps that I just got done watching the entire series for the first time a couple months ago when I got the DVDs. Otherwise I probably wouldn't have remembered that either.

Well since Ba'al was killed before he could grant Teal'c a free Jaffa nation, Teal'c had to get his nation somewhere.

I think it needed to either be longer or shorten some of the battle scenes(don't shoot me!) in favor of more dialogue.

If they had never developed the SG Program, they wouldn't have gone back in time to plant the things.

In this alternate timeline, there was no ZPM in Egypt.
