Seriously, there are numerous things in the shows that are far under the movie, without talking about the FX, sets, outfits and all the continuity bloopers.
Sure, the shows had many interesting points, but there are also numerous other points that damn suck, if not nonsense, like the "we meet an alien race but, oh ! what a miracle, they talk american..." syndrome that makes me wonder if I missed something like the latest american galaxy-colonization mission broadcasted on CNN.
Sorry but there are times when I wish the show producers would have think twice before filming anything.
Anyway, there are still cool stories and events, but well...
I agree with the langauge thing to a point, but I don't really see it being a US thing, its just that it needs to be less 'hard-core' for the TV series, therefore dummed down, its ashame, but there we go..
And the US accent will likely be the fact that SG is based in Canada, US so more actors will come from there...
Yeah the whole language thing. They explain it as well loadsa people came from earth, but two thousand years ago or however long the language was completely different. So its just a coincidence that everybody's language evolved to nearly the same place even tho they had completely different influences.
But I don't mind cos I love stargate!
Oh by the way, Kurt Russell was a **** Jack O'Neill (imo )
KR would have cost too much to hire, and so would the original cast like JS.... Big movie stars on't come cheap, especially if they can get $5m making one film in 2 years as opposed to working for 6 years making the same series every day....
Besides, RDA is responsible for bringing stargate to the small screen, if it wasn't for him and his production company stargate would just have stayed at the one film
