Always a pleasure to watch these reviews, funny and entertaining and now it’s time for an opinionated review of Stargate SG1 Children of the Gods the pilot for the series made for Showtime.
Fifteen years ago tonight the US pay television broadcaster Showtime did the world a huge favour by premièring it’s new serialised scifi series Stargate SG1 to it’s pay audience. I suspect back then this was quite a significant step for the subscription service which underlines how good a product Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner put together not to mention strengthened by the work of Rob C Cooper, Peter DeLuise and many many other “heroes” of the show:)
“Sunday’s two-hour premiere episode of the MGM Worldwide TV Group series “Stargate SG-1” generated for Showtime’s highest-ever ratings for a series premiere and ranks as the highest-rated original movie to premiere on Showtime in 3-1/2 years, according to the network.
It was learned through Nielsen that “Stargate” on Sunday tallied a healthy 10.5 rating in Showtime’s approximately 12 million U.S. households, or just shy of 1.5 million homes in total.“
A short and sweet look at the recent DVD release of Children of the Gods which underwent a re-edit with new CGI and soundtrack. If you’ve bought the DVD release or simply seen it elsewhere then let us know what you think, email or mp3 comments most welcome.
