    The promise of things mysterious, unique and mind-boggling.

    Of course they failed to deliver, and cheapened the series by merging Stargate with Farscape.

    Unpardonable.

    It used to be the realistic world clashing with the extra-ordinary, people dealing with hostile aliens but still having to deal with the laws they are bound by. The ways they deal with drug abuse (Need), racism (The Other Side) etc. The characters were also very human in their emotions(Lifeboat, Heroes, Solitudes, Meridian) backed up by great story lines and writting.

    Key words in all that: "used to"
    Equality is not a concept. It's not something we should be striving for. It's a necessity. Equality is like gravity. We need it to stand on this earth as men and women. And the misogyny that is in every culture is not a true part of the human condition. It is life out of balance, and that imbalance is sucking something out of the soul of every man and woman who is confronted with it.

    The characters, the stories, well, pretty much everything really.

    I think it's the feelin that it culd actually b happenin around us, it's here on earth, it's now, that's why i wuldn't ever want the stargate programme revealed. It's also gr8 stories, character relations (sumthin we'll hopefully see more of in S10), also the characters are like an addiction and u just wana see more of them, I dont get these same things from atlantis, it's still good but SG-1 is GR8!

    1) The connection to human history and mythology (Seasons 1-8)
    2) Strong continuity
    3) Exploring the science behind the gate
    4) You can get to strange places very fast to explore, rescue, investigate
    5) Not starship - centric (Seasons 1-7), so it's different
    6) Great characters, superbly acted (Seasons 1-8)
    7) Humor
    8) More science than fantasy (Seasons 1-8)
    9) DVD sets that can be had for under $40

    I think it's the idea that we might have "Hand's across the World", sure millions of people may drown to make this a reality, but it'll be a sweet and happy day *wipes tear*.

    Or the fact that the show has characters that you can connect with.

    Aww...
    Anyway, why Stargate is good:
    • It's sci-fi
    • Good action scenes
    • Characters I enjoy watching -
    • Good storylines
    • The humour - and that the writers don't take the show too seriously


    There's other reasons, but those are the main ones.

    What are you talking about? Stargate isn't anything like Farscape. I've seen every episode of both and they are very different shows.

    Best part about Stargate is the characters. Plus the whole set in modern day thing.

    I think it's the characters and the way the TPTB tell the stories.

    From a view point of someone who has just been "turned on" to SG 1 by a friend (thank you!) I would say the chemistry between the characters, the stories and the fact its set in a time frame I can relate to. It Rocks!!!!!!!!!!!
