There is no topic for this show yet. This is a crime against humanity.

Also, a poll to help boost discussion. That's not an exaustive list, ask the mods to add stuff if you want it.

Anubis all the way... he reached evilightenment.

I loved it when he was walking around in that robe when the first introduced him to the series.

I just love the replicators. Like Teal'c said, they're not evil, they just replicate. They're a nice turn from the clearly evil villains.
I didn't like the human-form replicators, they shouldn't have a face, a head, etc. They should just be a mob, that's where their power is. I especially don't like the lack of much distinction between them and the Asurans. The Asurans are the aggressors, they're programmed to be hostile, not to simply replicate.

Replicators are the "Best" because they are the most interesting (or at least most memorable).

I would think so, yes, as it's pretty much a reset of the planet minus Teal'c and Jack's brains. But if they shot themselves in the head it might cause...problems...

That's a toughie, many of them are pretty awful. Senator Kinsey is everyone's favorite slimy politician. Anubis is a great bad guy - not quite human, not quite ascended. The replicators have a one track mind...

Replicators definitely. In their bug form they are the scariest. In their human form they are the most interesting (particularly Fifth).

I really hated the Ori. They really should have ended the show before it had a chance to jump the shark. Ending it with the defeat of the goa'uld, a big party, and then the ending they used, of the team going off on another mission would have been awesome.

Personally I think of seasons 9 and 10 to be a separate, spin-off entity. Since basically, that's what they are, and it's the only way to watch them without putting my fist through the tv.

If I was to knit a stargate, what bits of it do I need? What do I need to make it recognisable? Has anyone got a really good reference picture, or can take a screencap for me?

I know nothing of the knitting scene, but I am guessing you might go down in history as the first person ever to knit the event horizon of a wormhole.

I too know naught about knitting but if that proved too inpractical you could knit a scarf with the chevrons that are the address of Earth on?

I liked O'Neil. Without O'Neil (and the chemistry he brought to the show with the other characters) I thought it became so-so and after much convincing from a friend moved over to Atlantis. I know little about the Ori misadventures.

By scale, I meant 1:1 :D

Oh, and if you could make it work, that would be fun, too. Maybe if you knit it with silk from a space worm!

Haven't seen continuum yet but back to the original topic the replicators were by far the most bad-ass. They were everything the borg were supposed to be. There was simply no stopping them.

On a side note i rather lost interest in the show for the last two seasons. Not so much because of the Ori but because of the lack of RDA. Now I am not necessarily saying RDA was an amazing actor as i cant really imagine him being very good in a wide variety of roles but he was an excellent choice for this one making a great team leader. besides... he's fucken MACGYVER! if that isnt enough for you them i don't know what is. = )

he got really over the top with his humor towards the last 2 seasons he was there. Just saying, he almost refused to say any lines seriously by the end of it.

I started to sense a sloping quality around season 6, with the human form replicators and too few new civilizations that had had no contact with the regular villains or Tau'ri allies. As time passed, the galaxy started to seem like one big family, and all episodes began to depend on each other. The episodes that managed to build an unique atmosphere were what got me hooked up in the first place.

Of course, the conclusion of the series degraded Daniel Jackson from the cool, geeky adventurer, to saying things like "my god doesn't enslave people". Not to mention that the show gave of this semi-hidden, nationalistic message, that I can't see in the earlier seasons (they're supposed to fight corruption and fundamentalism, for Pete's sake!).

As for the question: Replicators. Clearly.

Well, I liked the first 8 seasons atleast, the last 2 slightly less. Ark of truth was okay, continuum slightly less interesting.

I also support the idea of a knitted stargate as that would be freaking awesome. As is the entirety of your knitting, which would be why I am bookmarking that page. (If not joining the group, due to my quite unique name)

I just saw the series finale again. While the episode itself was well done time travel episodes always rub me the wrong way. I mean at the end Carter specifically says she can only reverse time up to the point where the field is created...and then proceeds to reverse time to significantly before the beam hits them. I mean I understand the need to do that, but don't go tell us something and then do the exact opposite (i.e., just don't tell us the first part).

In any case, I love this show, though I do agree it went downhill with the Ori storyline. The only good part about those last seasons was Vala who added a much needed level of humor once they got rid of O'neil. That and the special effects were fairly spectacular later one (the big space battles with the Ori were cool to watch at least).
