If you had to choose between the Two..

New postby Aaron_0105 » Wed Mar 11, 2009 6:03 pm

Ok this is the promised thread that i was talking about earlier..

Which show would you choose if you had to.....
Sure there are other shows out there that could be included, like B.S.G, Firefly and Dr Who
But these are the two so far that have really won me over.
Stargate because it's my first love and it was a stayer for over 10 years, some of the best storylines i've ever seen.
Farscape, storylines in this series rocked! But it had the added bonus of a, dare i say it? Love story? Cos they actually did it while Sg1 didn't quite get there..Which was a good thing!
I haven't picked yet cos i can't decide. These also include the two movies that were made after they were finished.
Which one to choose...... Have fun trying to decide!!!

Cos i can't yet...

I can vote this with confidence because I made the choice and brought my farscape with me, leaving my SG1 dvds in storage. I know, I never would have expected it myself but my logic was thus:

I've bought the Farscape series several times now and every time I get it, I pay too much and get ripped off (online auctions, etc) and still have to watch copies I made from my dvr. Stargate is very easy to find and the entire 10 season box set here in the USA costs about the same as 2 seasons of Farscape. SOOOOO>>>>>>> by that logic, I decided I would bring Farscape. Besides, it's an excuse to buy the new SG1 box set. :P

Well. After a while thinking about it. A lot. I've finally come to a decision and have chosen Stargate.

I'm sure if Farscape had been allowed to continue i'm sure i wouldn't have been able to make a decsion. Statrgate will always be my first love.

Who was the other person who cast their vote for Stargate?
Only 3 other people, telkesh, Felicia or Erik.. Give up!

I picked the gate.

I love Farscape. I love that it was Aussie with an Aussie cast. I love that it wasn't your typical sci-fi. I loved the range of alien life, the uniqueness of the series as a whole.

But Stargate has been there for (this year) half my life. I remember being a 12 year old boy sitting down to watch this new series based off a movie that was OK. As I grew the cast grew with me. I know exactly what I did the night when Daniel died. SG:1... feels more like an old friend.

i couldn't have put it better...
And i can remeber exactly where i was to the night Daniel died too. Channel 7's thursday night 8.30 primetime, That was the time they put on their biggest show,still do. Lost used to be there as well.
This was before i ever had the internet so i didn't get any spoilers what so ever about it and it totally blew me away.. never ever saw that coming. Just like "Lost City" as well. I actually cheered when that Goa'uld death gilders and the X-302's had their massive dogfight. still get goosebumps about it.
Didn't get internet until season 8.

I've seen SG1 from beginning to end at least 8 times through and I swear, I cry every time. Especially Heroes. I can NOT help myself. *sniff* I can't even think about it without getting teary.
