    Default Re: First Three Episodes Reaction Thread (SPOILERS)

    Probably I said I wouldn't mind the cheap look or the gate related problems, if the story would be okay. But the actors act really weird and the jokes are forced too much. This whole Origins story could have been presented with a more serious tone. SG is not a sitcom. But I should not even call it as sitcom, because this is rarther annoying then funny.

    Do you remember the parody of "younger and edgier" version of SG-1 in 200? I belive that is what they have just made in Origins. Very young cast with a completly parodistic behave like they are on drugs or something.

    But in spite of these I still found a few nice scenes there and it has definately reopened the fanboy in my heart to wish for more Stargate. So if that was the plan it has still worked, but SG:O won't be that series what I will watch again and again. Hopefully we needed this necessary bad to get a new "real" spinoff after years of waiting.

    After all the hype, this was a big disappointment. It is only a low budget, bad acting, insult to all the fans and the history of the franchise. After SG1, SGA and SGU this is what they give us?

    She wasn't Jaffa, she was a minor Goa'uld called Serqet, Egyptian scorpion goddess. Sickle modification is a blade designed t resemble scorpion tail.

    I definitely wouldn't consider Stargate: Worlds canon. But yes, according to the Mission Files, Serqet is a servant of Aset, and Aset made her the custom staff weapon.

    I know it is not canon anymore, but actually BW and RCC was working on the story of that game. So they definately wanted to expand the SG universe what they couldn't afford on the tv. So I have no problem that Aset has got a special Jaffa weapon as it is new and unique.

    Yeah. No problem in introducing a new staff weapon. I just think it's not practical/functional for a weapon.

    To vaguely quote Jack, it makes it even more a weapon of terror, designed to intimidate the enemy. Not a weapon to wage war with and kill the enemy.

    Really disliked Origins characters. The obvious need to make Catherine look as "strong" and capable as possible while constantly belittling her male comrades with eye rolls, insults, etc between scenes was very unpleasant viewing. The character interactions felt like something you'd get from Buzzfeed.
