Long time no see…

15 Jan

Well, this is has been another long hiatus…

Reason for it was (obviously) the Christmas vacation, and a lot of work on the DayJob after that.

Hopefully in the coming weeks I’ll get back to game development for real, but I’ve been so tired/fed up with work when I get back from the DayJob that I don’t feel like coding (or even gaming, for that matter)… I just put my feet up and watch TV shows…

Lately, I’ve been re-watching my all-time favorite TV show: Stargate SG-1.


Yes, I love this more than I love Star Trek or Star Wars… for all its flaws, it was a really fun show to watch, with a good mixture of preachy and good, old-fashioned high-adventure! For me, fan-favorite “Firefly” has more in common with Stargate SG-1 than with the other big sci-fi shows… Good humour, enjoyable characters, and a sense of evolution: Star Trek and Star Wars are completely static from a technological perspective… Star Wars is just a storyline, and Star Trek is (with some notable exceptions) happening in a very static universe… Stargate showed us a mythos in which humans started knowing very little and improved their know-how and technology to rival the arch-enemies! You can observe as the characters themselves evolve, and even the cast changes didn’t spoil the main purpose of it: fun! In a very different way, it’s very “Doctor Who”, which is a big plus!

“Stargate: Atlantis” was also pretty fun (also very good and interesting characters), and “Stargate: Universe” could have been great as well (if they didn’t screwed it up with terrible casting and a story that went nowhere).

I really miss “Stargate SG-1”… maybe one day we’ll be able to see a reboot, remake or even sequel, but until then, I’ll have to make do with rewatching the whole thing! Open-mouthed smile
