First of all, the basic premise shared by all versions of Stargate is one of the most amazing ever created in any sci-fi universe. It is based on a round gate that allows instant travel over very long distances. The gate was created by aliens and used in ancient times to transport humans to be used as slaves on distant planets. As such, all the advanced technology is labeled as "ancient," even though humans barely have a grasp of it.

None of them, not even the specialists who have worked with the technology, have any idea how the spaceship works, other than small clues based on what they had learned from other "ancient" technology. They initially don't even know the purpose of the ship, and why it seems to be set on a predetermined course, even though it had been completely uninhabited before they got there.
The series had a few "soapy" moments, especially at the beginning, but it is easy to look past that to see all of the awesomeness. Another amazing thing about the show is that, similar to Lost, many of the characters are totally unlikeable in the beginning. As time goes on, you get to know them, until one day you think to yourself, "I love that guy (or woman)!" Then you realize that something amazing has happened.

Romulans and Vulcans rock those shoulder pads in their clothes hard #80sMomStyle #StarTrekOf course, I'm also a fan of the first batch of #StarWars movies. In fact, Star Wars was the first movie my mother ever took me to see in the theater when I was a little kid. It's the whole reason I'm a sci-fi fanatic in the first place.

SO COOL! "Photographer Uses #StarWars Figurines To Depict A Day In The Life Of A Stormtrooper" http://t.co/7GHSgvymZE pic.twitter.com/x8zUNQ6fdSI also have to mention one of my favorite sitcoms of all time, 1999's #StarkRavingMad, starring Tony Shalhoub and Neil Patrick Harris, both amazing actors. It only lasted for less than a season, but it was amazingly hilarious.
