I have loved this show since I was a child. I used to feel like Samantha Carter was my role model. Now I'm twenty five years old and I still love this show. I think in the film universe, I'm in love with Dr. Gregory House, from House, M.D., Jesse Pinkman, from Breaking Bad, and Dr. Daniel Jackson, from Stargate SG-1. Maybe Ricky Fitts. Can you maybe-love something? Although Jackson sometimes annoys me -- like how he sometimes fails to consider the possibility that he is wrong on certain topics because of the arrogance of his intelligence when I believe that truly smart people (myself included) ought to be critical and challenge themselves as well as everything else... it's sort of like total integration of aptitude in a high functioning active capacity. I used to hate that in the X-Files movie as well, how the so called "scientist," a lover of science, kept saying things were "impossible," rather than just accepting that she couldn't yet explain them. If it happened, it is possible. Something is possible. Yeah, I get the residual skepticism when something seems outrageous, but you should immediately begin by tackling how it happened, not how it couldn't have happened. But I digress... oh my gosh, this review is going to be terribly written.
I LOVE this show so much. There's even an episode where top secret government information gets leaked to a TV show and the TV show is not shut down because it is decided that if the information should ever be leaked again, they could cite the show as an explanation to cover their tracks. Hm.... hmm...
Ah, I'm only partially joking. That is a real episode. I like how my flavor of a "joke" doesn't even require a punchline in this case, it just is. Also, I love all of the throw backs and allusions in this show that I didn't necessary catch as a child. I understood the show then, but I didn't fully appreciate the importance in the referencing of ancient Sumerian, which my grandfather speaks and has written books about. Now I have all the more reason to nerd out on this program. There are also all kinds of references and parallels with conspiracy theories and true history alike. Being less seasoned as a youth, I didn't catch much of this which I now can.
I just LOVE when you love something as a kid and have specific reasons for loving it, like the attraction is not random, but then you grow up to love it even more and there are so many package deals in this life and just...
WATCH THIS SHOW
