The End of SG1

Well, it's finally over. Stargate SG1 has broadcast it's final episode of it's final season, the tenth! I have to say, it was one of the world's best SciFi shows on TV to date, in terms of storyline, fantasy, continuity and production. Some of it's original cast are being shifted, so they'll still be around.

The good news is, MGM is releasing two complete movies as a continuation to the TV series; Stargate: Ark of Truth and Stargate: Continuum. So it's not a total loss, and in any case, Stargate: Atlantis is still scheduled for it's 4th season, and it's as good as (if not better than) SG1. Of course, my all-time favorite is still Battlestar Galactica, and there's no end to the plots, stories or adventures this show presents. Why SciFi, you ask? IMHO, it's way better than what's going on around us, and more interesting. At least the bad guys get what's coming to them without crybabies shouting "Foul" all the time.

A newcomer to my TV collection is The Unit, a TV series based on a book written by an ex-Delta Force Sergeant Major, Eric L. Haney called "Inside Delta Force". The Unit is a covert Special Forces team that doesn't exist, and go off fighting baddies everywhere througout the world, while their wives remain in the dark, fending for themsleves while their husbands are away. The interesting thing about this show is that some of the stories are derived from actual missions performed by the U.S. forces in the past, and so the show has a flair of being 'closer to the truth' than most A-Team type shows (Remember those guys?)
