Who would think one sci-fi movie would be responsible for so much entertainment? When Stargate hit theaters in 1994, few could have anticipated the success that would lead to 3 television series (Stargate: SG-1, Stargate: Atlantis, Stargate: Universe), 2 Direct-to-DVD films (The Ark of Truth, Continuum), an animated series (Stargate: Infinity), comics, trading cards, as well as a number of board and video games.
What made this franchise so successful? I joined the RevolutionSF RevCast with Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel, along with Michael Falkner (The Chronic Rift Network) to see if we could answer that question.
Stargate, the long running series that most of us have watched at least once, in one of its incarnations, is the topic for discussion this week. Our co-hosts, Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel sit down with Jessa Phillips and Michael Falkner to look at all the characters, mythos, plot twists and British-Comlumbia-like-planets that inhabited this series. And given that there were movies, three TV series, games and one horrible animated series, this one had to be split up into two, count-em, two episodes. It’s the two-parter you dreamed of. So dial the stargate to home and settle in for a talk.
With so much to cover, this show had to be posted in two parts! Visit the links below to tune in to the RevolutionSF RevCast!
