Stargate SG-1 Continues

| | Comments (1)

After the SciFi Channel canceled Stargate SG-1 after ten seasons, it was unclear exactly how MGM would manage to continue the story, but they insisted they would do so in some fashion. They have now announced exactly how. They have greenlighted two direct-to-DVD Stargate SG-1 movies to continue the SG-1 storyline. The first will deal with the necessary wrapup for the current Ori storyline that has occupied Seasons 9-10. The second will involve time travel.

It's unclear if the SciFi Channel will show these movies. Despite their insistence that MGM could not continue the show with them or anyone else, they had indicated a willingness to show some TV movies to continue the story. But I'm not sure MGM will want to do it. I wouldn't. These people just canceled a show that was doing ok in the ratings (even if it was lower than it had once been) immediately after a major milestone was achieved, which is something like breaking up with someone on their birthday.

The thing that makes me happiest about this is that it's not going to be online only. I don't think I'd enjoy having to watch it on a notebook computer screen, and if we have to pay for it I'd want it on a DVD with professional features. Pay-to-download is not a good option at this point except for people who can afford to build a home studio for their computer.

It would be an odd buy for me since I don't own the rest of the seasons and their characters have been REALLY well developed by now. Unless they somehow manage to do it like Serenity which I doubt.
