Alright! What are your opinions on the miniseries?
Now I have some severe problems with it. Let me first state that I have been a fan since the beginning, but the finale by no means measures up to the
1). This may sound strange, but the picture was so clear that I noticed all of the defects in the costumes. Perhaps they were using a highly sensitive
camera. Who knows?
2.) Was the story and dialog rushed or what!?! Cheesy over witty? I found myself laughing at really inappropriate times and not in a good way.
3.) Now I know that they have to end the series within 2 episodes, but do you really need to intorduce a prior-charactor every 5 minutes?
Ugggghhhh! Before I go on, is anyone else having a problem with this?
I loved it. And this from a person that nearly hated the series. It was alright. Some episodes were really good, some just stunk IMO.
But the final movie just rocked I thought.
To your points...
1) I always hated the muppets on that show. That's why I never got into it. Really cheesey, kiddie stuff it seemed. But in the finale they did the
bad guys up well. Their best work. Less Jim Henson, more theatrical.
2) Dialogue was always the worst part of that show for me (aside from muppets). How witty can you be getting shot at? It gets old. Way too wise
cracky, but finale was no better or worse.
3) I guess.
So Mr. Wise Crack is replacing O'Neil on SG-1? Figures.
The Sci Fi inbreeding is getting a little thin. How many characters from Star Trek and 7 Days can show up on other planets already? Colm Meaney is the
bad guy on Atlantis. Troi was on SG-1. The base commander from 7 Days is in everything....Andromeda, SG-1. Quark from DS-9 is the head of the Enoc. Is
that their name? The advaced race that can make cities invisible? I've seen Odo. He was a military commander on SG-1 trying to get heavy water. The
vulcan chick from Voyager is Teal'c girlfriend.
There's been more but I can't remember them all. I've now seen the main Tokrah lady in at least 2 sci-fi movie productions. Like Saber Tooth and
the toys versus puppets thing they just made. She's pretty hot actually. The one that came on to O'Neil?
There's got to be more than like 12 actors on the planet to do these shows. Kind of cool they get work though.
I know there's more. Who else? Has Mad Dog Murdoch from A-Team and TNG shown up yet? I think Worf has, but I can't remember where I saw him. He was
in a Sci-Fi movie with Colm Meaney about Earth and time travel, but on SG-1 too I think.
It's kind of ridiculous. I say BOO to Farscape man on SG-1 though. The blue chick from Farscape was a recurring character on Hercules (his fiance)
that later appeared on Andromeda (both Kevin Sorbo) before Farscape. Wait. There were two blue chicks on Farscape weren't there. The cute one I mean
(if blue and cute is possible). Enough already. If I go into all the cross overs from Fantasy (Beastmaster, Hercules, Lost World) we'll be here all
What I don't get is why Parker and Vuckavich from 7 Days get NO work now. They were cool. He had one Sci Fi movie about the planet overheating, and
she did a cameo on Seinfeld (hot receptionist George lies too) but that was it.
Quark and Odo were also on the Soap spin-off Benson. It always goes back to Soap, which had the lady from LA law that was an original ensign on the
first Star Trek in the 60's. She returned on TNG as Dr. Polaski for a season. Time was not kind.
Even that schmuck WESLEY
got a Sci Fi movie! :shk: He was one of three scientists that journeyed to the center of the earth. Man.
I hate that kid.
But why the Sci-Fi casting in-breeding? Laziness? Favors? Or just to annoy me?
