As others have said, the first film looks like it could potentially be good. The fact that they are using it to tie up the Ori storyline means they're not going to finish it up in a crappy way with the series finale. I have to admit, that was a worry. Still, I think the Ori storyline is going to lose potential without at least another season.

I also tend to agree with others on being weary of a time travel story for a second movie, especially if it elimates/changes the timeline events in the series for the last ten years.

Elan

Well IF they do plan on having it launch another spin-off, they could use the timetravelling in a way that wouldn't base the spinoff in timetravelling. aka a timetravelling experiment goes bonkers, sends someone somewhere sometime and away you go. This would also keep it seperate from Atlantis and continuity wouldn't be so much of a hassle anymore. But you never know *shrug*

its that, or: Stargate SG1: Jack in Time

Exciting news about the movies. However the second one, what a waste, time travel is nothing but trouble and ridiculous complexity.

The only way I see myself potentially enjoying such a movie is if the time travellers are a third party from the future (not themselves in the future) who come back to the past to ask SG-1's assistance. So SG-1 would be allowed to interfere with their future affairs without affecting their own present or past.

Maybe it will be the pilot for a new spin-off series based solely in the distant future. That way the new series could potentially be based exactly as Stargate SG-1 has run the last 10 years but with a new look and feel of the premises and set up.

Yeah, to be honest I'd be up for an idea of a spin off set far in the future. Sg1 isn't a franchise which in my opinion is married to a particular time frame, it could work quite well in the future with still being good and believable and in the universe. It could be really good... I'd be up for it.

As for the time travel story, I'd be fine with it IF it was set in the future, that's not been done before and could be good. And set up something potentially. Let's see.

Is anyone else just slightly worried about a...."time" related episode? I mean, haven't we as fans kind of complained about these kinds of episodes in the past?

And, even though I am ESTATIC to hear the news...I'm just worried about Stargate SG-1 ending in a "And they all lived happily ever after" kind of ending. If anything, this show has not preached the 'happily ever after' kind of endings. So...it'll definately be interesting to see how things play out.

But, hey, I'll take what I can get. 1.gif YAY SG-1!!!

In fact, the previous 2 pages have been people saying the exact same thing. So I would bargain that yes, people are slightly worries.

Sorry I would just like to add that people did like 1969 and 2010, the only time travel one people DIDN'T really like was mobius so I don't really see what the problem was. Presuming it was bad because one episode on the topic was bad isn't really that fair imo... We'll see when we see it. But given that it is a film I'm sure it would be good.

I wonder if, on the spinoff, we'll see a time traveling SG team. It'd be a chance to see more of the ancients, the Goa'uld, the alliance, dead characters, etc...... huh.gif

Like Doctor Who? biggrin.gif That'd be interesting, but a show like SG-1 can't get away with what DW does - they'd have to deal with the ramifications of all the time paradoxes, self-fulfilling prophecies, and closed loops...and what not...which would get rather convoluted, unless they planned it out all from the beginning...which I doubt they have the foresight to do.

I'm not sure what I'd like the spin-off to be.

...oh, and woop; movies. 1.gif

'1969' and '2010' were good because Brad Wright wrote them, he was involved with 'Moebius' along with Robert Cooper but so were Mullie and Mallozzi. See, there's a pattern emerging.

I think Scott Bakula is available. Dean Stockwell, however, is busy being an evil Cylon right now on BSG. whistling.gif

From Wikipedia...

Scott Stewart Bakula (born October 9, 1954) is an American actor most famous for leading roles in two science fiction television series, Quantum Leap and Star Trek: Enterprise.

His performance in Romance, Romance and his Tony nomination helped him win the lead role opposite Dean Stockwell in the critically acclaimed television series Quantum Leap. In this science fiction series, Bakula played the time traveler Dr. Sam Beckett who was trapped by a malfunction of his time machine that inserts his consciousness into people in the past. His performance in this program would earn him a Golden Globe award (along with three nominations) and four Emmy nominations for Best Actor. Low ratings for this series caused its cancellation in 1993.


Stockwell's performance as Tony inspired producer Donald Bellisario to cast him in what would arguably become his best-known role, as Rear Admiral Albert "Al" Calavicci in the American TV series Quantum Leap, which aired between 1989 and 1993. Stockwell also appeared as a guest star on an episode Star Trek: Enterprise with former co-star of Quantum Leap, Scott Bakula.

Great show, BTW..definitely DVD worthy

Seriously?

I watched Quantum Leap on television when I was younger, and you are older than I am.

Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell are awsome. Dean Stockwell was in a season 6 episode of SG-1... He was from Kelowna.

Yeah, Bellisario is reknowned for screwing up the last episodes of his shows. Look what he did to "JAG." Ended it with a flip of a coin and Mac and Harm never got horizontal...I'm still pissed.

Now that someone has mentioned Quantum Leap, I understand it all biggrin.gif

Basically, I suck with actor/actress names. If you tell me "oh, I like such and such an actor" I will stare at you blankly unless you follow up with an example of a character he/she played. So, I now understand said comment. 1.gif

LOL my husband is the same way.


As for the second movie/time travel
SG does time travel well IMHO. Even M&M couldn't screw it up in moebius.

QL..... My fav scifi show by far. I love SG1, the origional BSG all the STs but if I was was locked in a room for a month and could only pick on TV show to watch over and over, it would be QL.

Hmm.. I thought Moebius was a good ending-of-season episode. Perhaps this movie will be done in similar style.

Wasn't he supposed to have leapt out of the period of his own life and somewhere into the future after the last episode?

Nope. He leapt into a time that existed before he was born (which wasn't supposed to happen) And it turns out he didn't have to do anything. It also turns out there was another leaper there who did the saving and it was kind of a break for him. And we find out that God is the Bartender in the town and tells him that he's giving Sam a break this time because he's done so much of God's work. And then he leaps out and continues a lifetime of leaping. And basically he never gets home. He always keeps leaping.

Kind of a crappy ending IMO.

I thought God/ Bartender gave him control of the leaping so he could leap anywhere he wanted?? Wasn't that the point to him asking where he would want to leap?

Time travel is just bad news. I hope they go into the future. At least that means they won't screw up their timeline. They find out how screwed up things will become and come back to the SGC to try and fix things.
