Stargate SG1 - Truly Undending

Few days ago, Buffy the Vampire Slayer was celebrating it's tenth anniversary of appearing on the tv screens for the first time. Even though it wasn't an exact anniversary for me - I hadn't started watching Buffy till some time later, after it made its way to Polish tv... It still mattered. Ten years, eh?

Some TV shows I loved to pieces, hadn't made it past their first season. Some where cancelled abruptly and without a real reason. Some lasted for longer and became less and less the shows I loved.

I watch shows for different reasons. Buffy and Angel I watched for characters, wonderful and flawed. CSI and CSI:NY I watch for weirdness, murders that make me cringe and one-liners I groan at and still love. BSG I watch for the grittiness and hurt, and the people who ultimately, will pull through, I hope. Veronica Mars I watch for the snarkiness and fun. Gilmore Girls for the fast-paced dialogue and quirkiness. Stargate Atlantis for the swagger and Rodney's snark. Heroes for the awesomeness factor and the hot people. House for the dry wit and the insults and House being an asshole. Supernatural for the horror cliches and banter. Doctor Who for the strangeness and because it's clearly fantastic...

Stargate SG-1 I watch for the love.

I am not exactly active in SG-1 fandom. I don't really read fics... but that actually says a lot, because in my opinion, you hardly can improve on the show itself. This might be nostalgia talking, after all, the show is just ending after a ten years' long run, but... This is the one show that never disappointed me, never failed to make me laugh and cry and yell at the screen and then, at the episode's end, be satisfied that everything is right.
