    Well, actually, the pilot's called ''Rewind''.

    Will there be a big stone ring that spins the temporal vortex open? :rolleyes:

    Can they only travel back seven days?

    Yeah, this is not a very original concept at this point, Seven Days, Source Code, etc... but I have no idea wtf it has to do with Stargate.... Because there's... military involved? I don't know, but I think someone is bitter.

    "I think someone is bitter" would be an excellent forum motto. :rommie:

    If it has nothing to do with Stargate, WTF does the SG stand for?

    Silly and God awful?

    ^He was joking, there is no SG in the title.
    I've been pretty happy with most of Syfy's stuff, so I'll probably check this out. But year, I do have to agree that it isn't the most original idea.

    Most ideas aren't terribly original; it's what you do with them that matters.

    I wonder if Jonathan LaPaglia will do a guest appearance?

    Sounds like Syfy has the regrets it lost Doctor Who and is trying to find its own version.

    This sounds as epic and well thought out as robert Hewitt Wolfe's 'Untitled' sci-fi thing. So let's see, one is about space travel and one is about time travel. Good going Sy-fy. Now let's see if they can tie their shoe laces.

    Sounds more like it'll be a tunnel.

    A tunnel? Can we get a James Darren guest shot?

    Painful to do that when they've shot themselves in the foot so often.

    Maybe they can cast John Rhys Davies as a curmudgeonly scientist who clashes with the lead...:devil:


    And yeah, I was feeling snarky when I posted. That line I quoted was nearly identical to the description for SGU. Couldn't help but think of Stargate. :vulcan:

    Weren't Syfy supposed to be developing a Source Code TV series?

    That was CBS.

    I wouldn't hold out too much hope for it. Seems more strongly sci fi than they'd be willing to go. They pussyfooted with Person of Interest and the ratings haven't been great by their standards.
