Stargate Origins and waning enthusiasm
I hate to admit I was wrong, but as my watching Stargate Origins progresses, I am forced to take a step back. Upon catching the first episodes, I wrote the show looked good. The show does indeed look good, but alas it is starting to play like a not-so-good fan-project, or like a collection of transition scenes for a videogame.
We are now two-thirds into the story, and while preciously little is happening, the little that is happening is somewhat… lightweight.
There are a few good ideas in there, but the general impression is one of disappointment. I am particularly appalled at the dialogues and characterization – that seemed to promise so much in the early episodes and that are now down to some very irritating, petulant chattering.
True, any new Stargate is better than no new Stargate, but that’s a small consolation.
I’m not particularly eager to see the remaining three episodes, and that’s a pity.
