I’m sort of excited about the new Stargate Universe show starting on October 2nd. I like Robert Carlyle and I’m even interested to see what Lou Diamond Phillips can do with a regular TV character.
This begs the question… do I need to watch the other shows in the franchise to fully appreciate this new series? I took a quick look in to it and to my suprise and horror, I discovered that there are 10 seasons of SG-1 with 214 episodes and 2 movies and 5 seasons of SG Atlantis with 100 episodes! This doesn’t even include the animated series that isn’t strickly considered canon.
Geez. That is a lot of time debt to get caught up. Any Stargate fans or haters out there? Is it even worth it?
