I'll probably see them because I liked the film and I loved the series, but I'd much rather see them either continue SG: Universe or do a new series. Anytime Hollywood does a "reboot" it's really saying to fans "we know you like this, and it won't matter how shitty it is; you'll still pay." Stupid Hollywood.

SG:U was the biggest shit that they ever produced. I would have been okay with it under a different brand, but not "Stargate". The Startrek Voyager and Battlestar Gallactica merge that they called SG:U is a total insult to the Stargate brand.

I agree, SG:U felt as if written by soap opera writers. We can do without all the drama and teenager problems in science fiction. I hope they leave the annoying Eli character out of the new movies.

I liked it. (Score: 2, Interesting)

And I'll be the contrary bastard who liked Eli best of the lot. He's the only one I wholly trust.

And I'd be very pleased if there was more SG:U as well as whatever new SG comes along.

So, they have finally figured out that content is worth more than gold and have decided to capitalise on Stargate. Oh well, there it really goes down the drain.

Which is really a pity as SG:U actually was looking much better towards the end ... and SG:SG1 just had a new cast infusion (while we are here, thanks for killing Farscape guys :-( ) which would have allowed SG:SG1 to continue for another 5 years. Lots of places they could have gone but no sciffy decided to shut it down. Shame, shame, shame.

Shall we kill another Firefly while we're at it?

Maybe they can get shamalamadingdong to direct... (Score: 1)

And he can tell us Stargate(as prounounced in he hundreds of hours of existing content) is actually pronounced "pyramid thign" from the chiense roots.
