Song Stuck on the Brain: Hushabye by The Beach Boys
I've spent the whole day saying, "Yay, tomorrow's Friday! I'll be homefree soon." Then it dawned on me. I have one very good reason to be sad tomorrow. It's no longer Stargate night.
Last Friday was the season finale for Stargate Atlantis. It will be returning in September 07. However, Stargate SG-1 is finished. The series finale left Angel and I heartbroken and yes, even teary last Friday night. There will be no more episodes with the intrepid adventurers Sam Carter, Daniel Jackson, Cam Mitchell, Teal'c, and Valla.
Yes, there will be at least two SG-1 movies to continue the saga (two guaranteed in 2008), but it's just not the same. The show could have gone another 5 years, easily. As much as I love Stargate Atlantis and will probably enjoy the new proposed spin off, it just won't ever be the same again.
How do you say goodbye to a group of people that you've invited into your home week after week for 10 years? They're no longer characters and actors, they're family. And for that, I dedicate this post to the best and longest running SciFi show to date: Stargate SG-1.
Good-bye team, I'll miss you.
