Too Stargate SG-1.
My favourite show ever.
20 years now. That means it's been off the air for 10 years.

I really, REALLY loved the movie. Those movie costumes and props were absolutely amazing. I don't think the movie was necessarily geared just for kids, but kids did enjoy it too.

I just wish they had really stuck with the Egyptian theme in the tv show. They might have been able to reuse many costumes and props if they had stuck with one civilization. They could have made the show about Ra's other "Egyptian" kids/heirs (hosts) trying to get revenge but, for some reason the series' writers felt they had to introduce every week a new ancient human culture that somehow had contact with the same type of alien. So while many of the X-files shows had a monster of the week thing, SG-1 had the culture of the week thing.

The "Ancient Aliens" theme (that ALL deities and ancient heroes of every culture on Earth were aliens) felt a bit thick at times. However, after a while it became obvious that there were going to be a few cultures/religions who were going to be exempt. :)

But despite all those new planets, it looked like almost every episode* was being filmed in the same Canadian locations (might explain the Jaffa in sweaters/"chainmail"), so the few shows with Egyptian costumes and props lost their flavor.

* Well, for the first few seasons, that is. I don't know about the rest. I lost interest after the first few.

Series was OK, but my favorite was and still is Farscape.

I liked all the SG series even if they were not "perfect" in some ways … SyFy should show at least one episode a day !

Movie was pretty good, the series unfortunately less so.

The original movie was wonderful and I did like the original SG-1 series. Atlantis was ok, but not as good and I never could get into the last one…

They cancelled SG1 then Atlantis to make universe. Talk about stupid idea. They thought they could make BSG in the stargate franchise.

I liked the film, and LOVED the series…not too fussed on the Ori though!

I found the Ori ok, but they overused the replicators.
