This show is very good. This show, like Firefly, takes the Star Trek concept, but twists it. What do I mean by this? Firefly took away aliens, when this show took away spaceships. Note: If you want to show this show to anybody, show that person or yourself watch Stargate (1994) first. Other note: For the shows pilot, skip a scene about 1 hour in for it has nudity if you believe your child may not handle full frontal female nudity (Done in a way that's not sexual) and even more showing of said character's breasts but if your child accidentally saw his/her mom naked, don't worry (I handled it so me being a(n) (Mature) 11 year-old, you shouldn't worry to much) . Further more on second note: If you're lucky (If you have a child that you don't want to see nudity) you might find a PG version of the pilot that you might consider a better introduction to the series than a pilot that originally aired on Showtime that's rated R so that's all. Yet another note: SG wise, watch the movie Stargate (1994), then this show, then on Season 7, watch this and Stargate Atlantis back-to-back, then after Atlantis' third season watch Stargate: The Ark of Truth, after that watch Stargate: Continuum, then finish Atlantis, and finish it all off with Stargate Universe, and if you're sad of no more Stargate, look for Stargate: Infinity, and if you're still sad after finishing that, play Stargate: Resistance, and if you're STILL sad, read the books, comics, listen to audiobooks, ect., AND IF YOU STILL SAD, hope for the improbable sequels to Stargate (1994). You will love this show and become a Gater!
