I hear atlantis is "awesome" but that was all I was willing to read.

I thought they both started well and were very good shows (I downloaded em)... Atlantis has some very cool characters, funny people in it aswell which I like, yet still being Stargatey.

Yea, SG Atlantis is looking really cool, almost better than SG1 in my opinion.

What exactly is Star Gate? I've heard of it but I've never actually seen it. Is it sort of like Star Trek?
I'm on medication now. I have condition called 'Hunteritise' which is when ever I see a Phoenix, I leap on it's back, rip its skull right out of its head and beat it to death with it!

Well it seems to be turning into it. It's set in the present day (or at least the not too distant future).

A large ring with dozens of symbols (the Stargate) was found buried in Eygpt in the early 20th Century, it's an alien device that allows you to travel instantaniously to other planets that have a stargate. The US Airforce runs a secret operation in Cheyanne mountain (SGC) that sends teams of soldiers to the other planets exploring and searching for allies or technology that can help defend themselves against an alien race called the Goa'uld. The Goa'uld are snake like creatures that can take over someone's body and who enslave humans (that were taken by the Goa'uld to other worlds thousands of years ago in ancient eygpt) all over the galaxy. Basically most ancient gods were actually Goa'uld pretending to be gods using their technology, although some gods were actually other friendlier aliens.

Sounds pretty cool! I might see if I can find the 1st episode on VHS at my local Video Store.

You should watch the movie first. It came out in 1995 I think and it is the first thing that happens in the Stargate Universe.

Yeah. The TV show is a spin off from the movie.

You do need to see the movie, here in the States every so often Sci-Fi will show it, but I actually like the movie.

Oh and I agree to that too. Both are tight though.
