SG-1 Season Nine

SG-1 Season Nine

Postby Mark » Wed Dec 23, 2009 6:27 pm

It seems to me here that we see a SHARP decline in the show. Apparently Brig Gen O'Neill gets promoted to Maj. Gen and pretty much leaves the show. We have a back story put in place about Lt. Col Mitchell, who means so much to the team that we've never heard of him before. The season opens with the SG-1 team splitting up, and being dragged back together by this new fellow.

I don't know.....it seemed SERIOUSLY forced here. Mitchell was literally FORCED down our throats, and is damned near a carbon copy of O'Neill (except not as funny). We find out that Merlin the Magician is really an ancient, and we meet the Ori (who actually seem like really cool bad guys...after all, how does one defeat a "god").

We meet Vala the nympho, who seems like she'd like nothing more than to jump Daniel's bones.

All in all, they seemed to have some great story IDEAS, the execution fell a bit short.

Aye, this is where it really started to go downhill, IMO.

Aye, they had good potential as bad guys. Too bad they didn't work out to be all that good.

At the end of season nine, they were battling the Priors and Ori worshippers right? Do the Ori themselves take the field soon?

To borrow a phrase, if Season 9 had a subtitle it would be "Stargate SG-1 Season 9; We've run out of ideas" -- I wouldn't say it's a bad season but it's definitely lackluster. Season 10 is alright, it's at least worth the 200th episode :lol:

Yeah, I'm not to crazy about the whole Camalot theme here. They could have done Greek/Roman, Sumarian, East Indian, or even revisited Native American mythology. But King Arthur (while being one of my personal favorites) just didn't seem to fit with the whole Stargate personna.

The other option would have been Lovecraft style. That would have had lots of fun there, where the Ancients of the Milky Way Galaxy are trying to protect the inquisitive monkeys from the other critters that are out there, have been out there for millions of years, and are bored.

That would have been quite good to see. We have our "gods" as protectors of the galaxy from the brutal and dangerous "gods" of the other galaxies.

It would also go some way to explaining why the Ancients never butt in on our level. Not only are they busy elsewhere, but it would also be ideologicaly inappropriate.

Likely could be its own entire spin off series.

None. They always surrender right before they finish the job and never tell you why.

That's not really the same thing though, IIRC.

I think the only occasions we see the Ori themselves do anything remotely important was on the planet where they were first introduced and the Prior...wait, do Prior's count as Ori?

Did anybody else ever start to wonder how EVERYBODY in TV seems to be a bladesman (swordfighter)?
