Farewell Stargate SG-1

The Stargate SG-1 series finale played out tonight and although there are two movies in the works (TV or straight-to-DVD), it is the end of an era.

Let us hope that this is not that last that we'll see of Claudia Black, Christopher Judge, Ben Browder, Michael Shanks, Richard Dean Anderson, and Beau Bridges in these roles that have become like family to so many.

Amanda Tapping is making a jump to Stargate Atlantis next season, so we will still get to admire LTC Samantha Carter, Ph.D. for some time to come.

The episode itself, "Unending" gave us some wonderful moments, most of which, IMHO, involved Daniel and Vala ,but everyone got to show us, once again, why this series only got better with time...

SciFi Friday will not be the same without it--indeed, it has not been the same since SciFi moved Battlestar Galactica to Sundays--but there's always Atlantis.

And DVDs


VRC rears its ugly head!!

Protein Wisdom has an account of an allegedly overheard confab between Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and Babs Boxer (D-CA) regarding how best to legislatively control the Vast Rightwing Conspiracy's (VRC) uncontrollable talk radio.

It is obvious that the great unwashed masses can't possibly actually choose to listen to those irrationally exuberant, war-mongering, fundamentalists, isn't it. Why 'tis the responsibility, no, the raison d'etre of the Liberal Left TM to safeguard the balance of the Force and defeat the forces of Empire...wait, wrong movie.

I think they should get someone with a lot of money, like George Soros, to bankroll it and hire a gifted Liberal Orator, like Al Franken, to anchor the network, and create a Liberal Left TM version of Talk Radio and call it something appealing, something patriotic, like, like, Air America! YEAH! That's gotta be a guarenteed hit. I mean, who wouldn't listen to THAT!! Whoa! Look out righties! If the Left figures that out, it's all over!

Anyhoo, go read the piece. Even if the conversation didn't actually happen, it's still true, non?
