I hated what they did with Weir, too, but I stomached it long enough to get completely pissed off at the last season. (I’m much more of a Sheppard fan, so I was happy as long as he was okay, but I hated almost the entirety of season 5.)
I want to write a fanfiction rewriting the end of the series, but I haven’t gotten around to it. Or planning it. I need to find a buddy I can bounce ideas off of. (Honestly, I really want to write an SGxHP crossover. I might have to add it to my list. See if I get ideas when I watch the series.)
It’s been a while since I got to talk about Stargate with someone. I keep trying to get my friends to watch it, but I think the 15-seasons-and-3-movies thing is a bit daunting. I may have to surprise them into it.
sheppard was my second fav after weir but ugh that couldn’t save seasons 4 or 5 for me. and yet as much as i hated the last two seasons i remain mad as fuck at them for stopping production on sga to do sgu instead. because that was a hot fucking mess.
and yeah stargate can be super intimidating. everyone i’ve gotten into the show i did back in undergrad when they were still airing so i could just be like ‘nah just start watching with me. i’ll answer any questions but you shouldn’t be too awfully confused.’ that was the way to do it. but alas!
I know! I got a bunch of friends into it that way, but I don’t talk to them anymore. -_- I think I need to find my go-to episodes. Like, for Doctor Who and Supernatural I have a few favorite episodes that I can get friends to watch and usually gets them hooked. I haven’t developed my SG list.
I hate that they stopped SGA for SGU. I tried to give it a shot, but it was— I have no words. I couldn’t even finish it. They should have given SGA more seasons. It wasn’t as if it was even doing poorly in the ratings (especially when you take into account the TiVo-type ratings), and we never got the movies we were promised. So annoying!
At least SG-1 finished and had a decent final season. (By then I’d moved on to being completely in love with Sheppard, so I wasn’t as into it as I once was, but it was still good and entertaining.)
