    I wasn't serious, of course. The joke was supposed to be that you've told us those particular episodes are great, and thus now we are robbed of discovering their greatness for ourselves. A la Sheldon being upset at being told how great the comic book he just bought was without any details given away (and then having to explain why simply being told it was good was a spoiler, thus bringing this thread even more into line with the video :vbgrin: ).

    Once a mind is pre-blown, it cannot be re-blown. :hi:

    I was kidding, too. :vbsmile:

    I bow to your referential prowess. :vbgrin:

    UPDATE: I stumbled upon that episode by chance in a sea of syndicated programming a few days ago. :thumbsup:

    I saw that NBC is bringing back Timeless for a second season. I'm glad. I've always liked shows that move back & forth on time, plus I get to learn, see or get a glimpse of history.

    I liked Timeless too and was surprised when I heard (at first) that it was cancelled. But then again, I liked Time after Time (the Jack the Ripper reboot). Fortunately, I was able to see at least the last episodes that were not broadcast in the USA.

    And thank goodness, these boys are back! Season 3 began last nite. Wednesdays at 10 PM on Sundance. The first 20 minutes are ridiculously funny. :vbgrin: (Rated TV-MA, fair warning. :vbwink: ) Dark comedy. Insanely clever writing.

    Yesterday I discovered a new (to me, at least) channel on Comcast, EL REY TV Channel 195. This network broadcasts Stargate: SG-1 every day at 2 and 3 PM, followed by Stargate: Atlantis at 4 and 5 PM. Episodes are aired in sequential order and must have just begun around April 15 because Stargate: SG-1 aired S1/Ep4 and 5 today (04/23). Ditto for Stargate: Atlantis. Set your gadgets up to record if you want to see both from the beginning. YAY! :thumbsup:

    Actually, I've been binging on Stargate on DroidTV. Watching in chronological order. I'm about half-way through Season 7 of SG1. When I begin season 8 of SG1, I will begin alternating with episodes of Stargate Atlantis, since that's when Stargate Atlantis appeared, at least according to episode dates.

    I can't believe I somehow missed this series when it first played... I'd never seen it before now. Not only was it a great spaceopera with an unusual angle, but it was very well written with genuinely surprising turns in what, in other hands, would have been very predictable plots. They also have a lot of fun poking fun at both themselves and Star Trek. I love the old fashioned storytelling where there is continuity and character and world evolution, and yet most episodes are capable of standing on their own.

    ANd I still have so much left to binge! :thumbsup:

    I am digging Netflix's version of Lost in Space. I'm in a bit of scifi drought right now, so I can't decide if it's great, really good or just surprisingly good, but I'm glad to have it, hope they make a bunch more seasons. It strikes a chord with me in a way netflix's other original stuff hasn't.

    Helps make up for the sadness after I realized the new spiderman won't come to netflix because it's Sony, not marvel, despite the collaboration. I've been really spoiled by just waiting for netflix to pick up all the disney stuff. Gonna be depressing when that deal ends.

    I like Atlantis a lot and absolutely loved Universe. I only saw a little of SG:1, but I may peruse my minor broadcast channels, I think it may be running on one those extras that cropped up after the HD switchover.

    I found sg1 airing on one of the little channels, and noticed it was just coming back around to start at the pilot episode. Well timed post @lelisa13p :newpalm: something to watch this summer, particularly useful since I didn't realize that The Orville season 1 was going to be a half order. :vbfrown:

    I look forward to future seasons when I think it'll have more trappings of scifi. Right now it has kind of a quantum leap/sliders thing going on. The two stargate series I watched were housed inside advanced tech, one space station underwater and one intergalactic space ship. In SG1, after the gate flares, it's on to cheap historical costumes with even wear, bad distance shots of tiny model cities/camps overlayed on to british columbia and arguments about how harshly to judge all the populations of stereotyped ancient humans everywhere that you have to try to remember are spread around the galaxy. I shouldn't complain, that's the show and that's the era of tv, but I know there are spaceships and aliens coming and I can't help but look forward to them. :newpalm: I'm not mature enough to enjoy drama without aliens, nor do I wish to mature thusly.

    It's funny, but after binging 7 seasons of SG-1, I found starting up a parallel binge of Deep Space... er, Stargate Atlantis to be a bit jarring. :vbwink: I adjusted, of course, and I like SGA just fine. And, yes, SG-1 is very 90s even when in the 2000s. In fact, it is everything you say it is-- it's basically NCIS with a Stargate. But the real charm of it is the cast, that really has an infectious chemistry. When the actor playing Daniel Jackson exited briefly (luckily), the hole was immeasurable. It was such a relief when he came back and must have been intolerable when watched in real time. And they do a nice job of every so often poking fun at themselves, just to remind the viewer they know what this is.

    I've only just started SGA, but it is clearly more sophisticated, better SFX and much more of a sci-fi series.:thumbsup:
