I get hook in Stargate since the movie. So for me the concept and story of the movie left me amazed. So when I discover they make a series I was instantly looking forward to it. And was glad to see that they keep the movie's concept for the series even using some of the actors. So I was hook again. Is not neccesarily that Stargate is better than other shows for me personally the story of the Ancients, the stargates, the humor, the different races, the acting(the actors that have been in it are just amazing), the conflicts, the battles. All that make it an amazing franchise. SG1 and Atlantis hook me instantly, SGU is getting there slowly. Is the first franchise that I have see all episodes.
