Well, I had a chance to see Stargate's nineth season opener and while the first few minutes were quite entertaining, the scene where Ben Browder's character is dogfighting the enemy on a snow climate looked like a total ripoff stolen from The Empire Strikes Back. For instance, like Luke Skywalker, his co-pilot was killed by an enemy blast and their ship was hit and crashed landed on the snow. What a copout. Then the story shifts to finding the lost sword of King Arthur. Oh please! That story has been done to death, some originality please. However, one plus is seeing both Browder and Claudia Black together again onscreen, except in this case, they're playing totally different characters and their chemistry is more matter-of-fact, as opposed to their work on Farscape. The writers made sure to not copy that and instead did a little tonque-in-cheek with Claudia and Michael Shanks.
