The 1994 movie Stargate was originally intended as the start of a franchise, but creators Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin were distracted celebrating their Independence Day,
Episodic TV treatment was the natural next step,
Since neither Kurt Russell nor James Spader would be able to commit, it gave the producers licence to tinker with the cast and the universe they’d explore,
Replacing the roles of Colonel Jack O’Neill and Dr,
Daniel Jackson respectively are Richard Dean Anderson and Michael Shanks,
They’re joined by Captain Samantha Carter (Amanda Tapping) and guilt-stricken former alien baddie Teal’c (Christopher Judge) to form the teacher’s pet primary unit SG-1 With a seemingly endless network of Stargates found to exist on planets all across the known universe, their mission is to make first contact with as many friendly races as possible,
Chasing their heels at almost every turn are the “overlord” pharaohnic Goa’uld–the ancient Egyptian Gods who are none too chummy after the events of the original film,
The welcome notion of a continued plot thread sees offshoots that follow the reincarnation of Daniel’s wife, Sam’s father literally joining a renegade faction of the Goa’uld, and Jack in an unending quest to out-sarcasm everyone,
There’s something of The Time Tunnel to the show’s premise, but amid a dearth of derivative look-a-likes, Stargate has held its own with stories that put the science fiction back into TV sci-fi,

Concluding the cliff-hanger from the end of Season One, “The Serpent’s Lair” is a rollercoaster of wit, plot twists, and cutting-edge special effects as the SG-1 team resign themselves to a suicide mission,
Then it’s a case of ignorance of the law being no excuse in “Prisoners”, as the team winds up in a penal colony striking a deal with someone who will have far-reaching influence on their future,
Sam is stalked by an assassin after a rescue mission all “In the Line of Duty”,
She saves someone in the most unique of ways–by taking over as host of their Goa’uld symbiont,
This introduction of Jolinar is key to much of the continuing storyline,
Dwight Schultz guest stars as “The Gamekeeper” in a garden that forces the team to puzzle their way out of re-living secrets of the past,
But all is not what it seems,
