It took me several attempts to get to liking Stargate in general.

I think a big part of it has to do with the chemistry between characters, in SG-1 there were more seasons and I think a good chemistry between characters.

I loved stargate for the special effects mostly, but grew to liking the actual characters in the end, bar some.

I guess I'm picky, but I couldn't stand a few of the major characters like Jack O'Neill and Rodney, they just came across to me as overly irritating, but always ended up saving the day to seemingly make up for it.

It used to drive me nuts at first which is why I think I originally liked Stargate Universe more than the rest, as it was a fair bit darker and everyone seemed to be angry, sad, upset or depressed due to their circumstances (probably why it failed in the end mind you)
