Did anyone watch the pilot episode last night? If not, and you want to, you can find it repeated several times during the week before the next episode. Syfy does that with its shows, which I appreciate since it lets me find a convenient time to watch.
I've enjoyed the Stargate world ever since the original movie came out, and have watched the series, both of which have had their ups and downs. I was nice to see some continuity with guest appearances by Richard Dean Anderson, Amanda Tapping, and Michael Shanks.
This one shows promise, I think. It did suffer a bit from 'pilotitis' -- by introducing too many characters at once, but I am looking forward to learning more.
It's has Robert Carlyle, Lou Diamond Phillips, and Ming Na; all three are talented actors. Most of the others are less well known, at least to me, but I did not see a false note from any of them.
A little piece of fun trivia was that Christopher McDonald, who played the senator, also protrayed Gooch, one the the T-birds in Grease 2. Of course, he done a lot of other things in between, but those two roles were such a contrast.
In any case, I will be watching this one until it disapoints me, which I hope it won't do.
