I loved it too, but am I jumping the shark here seeing the inspiration for Stargate SG1? (The series not the movie).
The pylon (stargate), the crystal alter controls (DHD), the sleestack versus enik reptile things (go'uld versus to'kra), an off world "native"
joins the quest (Teal'c)...
I just got to thinking about the Chaka episode of Stargate and how much the dialogue was even like the first LOTL when they met their own Chaka and
had to teach him languange and to be "friend."
I was going to edit in my explanation better, and fix the picture links but  powers gone after 2 hours.
No biggie. Just struck me last night this show was probably an inspiration and favorite of the SG1 guys as kids or something.
They do alot of intentional references like Wizard of Oz and MacGuyver... why not this?
