It’s hard to believe that, 20 years ago this week, the little sci-fi flick Stargate opened and went on to bank a solid, but not spectacular, box-office haul.
Hi. I have nothing to do with Stargate Universe, but I want to bring it back anyway. Give me $50 million, please.
The franchise might not be on the air anymore these days, but Stargate still has a boatload of fans — and can still inspire some awesome gift ideas this holiday season.
The Originals has just cast a Stargate actress for a very witchy role.
If there’s anything the Internet has done, it’s democratized the power of the people. One entertaining side effect? Petitions.
Stargate Universe lasted only two seasons and fans still want more.
Lots of Stargate Universe fans are still holding out hope that the show will someday make a triumphant return, and co-star David Blue is among them.
The Stargate shows—SG-1, Atlantis, and Universe—ran for a total of seventeen seasons. A year and a half after Universe was cancelled, we still miss the adventure, the camaraderie, and the otherworldly locations that strongly resemble Vancouver. But, hey—at least there are Stargate presents to give and to receive!
It's the classic tale of David vs. Goliath—well, more like fan vs. network. Every season, a whole lot of television series are cancelled. Some survive for just a handful of episodes, while others get a full season or multiple seasons before receiving the axe. All good things must come to an end. And for sci-fi fans, that's doubly true.
Sad because you missed your chance to buy Jack O'Neill's sunglasses or a working Jaffa Serpent Head during last year's amazing auction of Stargate props? Then get ready for the weekend, because a sale of thousands of objects from Stargate: SG-1, Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe starts tomorrow.
