Stargate: SG-What?

SG-1 back in the good old daysIf find it sad to report that the awesome and amazing television show known as Stargate SG-1 has left the building. Oh sure, there's still a show filling the time slot with the same name, but Stargate SG-1 it ain't, and my entire family is in mourning. :-( The first sign of Sci Fi channel trying to milk the Stargate cow dry was last season's premiere of Stargate: Atlantis. It's not bad, per se, but the only character that's really captured me and become a favorite is Dr. Rodney McKay (played by David Hewlett). Other than that, eh. And now that it's looking like they're going to try to hook up Col. Sheppard with Dr. Weir instead of Teyla, I'm going to start to get annoyed with the show. With this season of SG-1 there is more milking evident. Richard Dean Anderson has left the show (for the record I commend the man for dropping out to spend time with his family), Amanda Tapping is yet to be seen beyond a brief video-monitor cameo in the season opener, a younger replacement for O'Neil has been brought in who is (who would have guessed) also irreverent and to the point. There's also a new female character whose name escapes me but is infinitely annoying, and one of the Bridges' brothers as the new general. And oh yes, those great opening credits and music have been cut down to just 10 seconds in order to make more time for... extra commercials.
