Episode 388 Stargate SG-1 S01E10 The Torment of Tantalus

Join Dave and Wayne for genre television show news, a glimpse into what the hosts are currently watching, commentary and analysis of the classic military science fiction series Stargate SG-1, and our listener feedback. 

This week on the SciFi TV Rewatch podcast we discuss Daniel’s self-serving actions that continue to put not only the mission but the other team members in danger. Is Catherine’s fluid accent a problem when we consider the movie and the 2018 prequel Stargate Origins?

In our What We're Watching segment, Wayne tries once again to convince Dave to watch The Mandalorian, and Dave has high praise for the new HBOMax series The Flight Attendant. Is it really possible that neither has watched The Big Bang Theory?

In Listener Feedback, Fred from the Netherlands points out the nice job casting does with the younger and older Catherines.

Episode 387 Stargate SG-1 S01E09 Thor’s Hammer

Join Dave and Wayne for genre television show news, a glimpse into what the hosts are currently watching, commentary and analysis of the classic military science fiction series Stargate SG-1, and our listener feedback. 

This week on the SciFi TV Rewatch podcast we discuss Carter’s impatience and Daniel’s obsession with finding Shar’e and Skaara. We also question how quickly the team accepts that notion that the Norse gods are real but given everything else the SG teams have encountered during their gate explorations, perhaps it’s understandable. 

In our What We're Watching segment, Dave finishes watching the Danish political drama Borgen and begins the Spanish Netflix mystery series The Mess You Leave Behind. Wayne extends his Star Wars viewing for a revisit to the animated series The Clone Wars.

In Listener Feedback, Fred from the Netherlands echoes Wayne’s love of The Mandalorian.

Episode 386 Stargate SG-1 S01E08 Brief Candle

Join Dave and Wayne for genre television show news, a glimpse into what the hosts are currently watching, commentary and analysis of the classic military science fiction series Stargate SG-1, and our listener feedback. 

This week on the SciFi TV Rewatch podcast we discuss the fascinating dynamic that exists when Captain Carter works with Dr. Frazier to solve a problem that ultimately saves not only the SG-1 team but humanity as well. General Hammond continues to make the difficult calls and his willingness to do so even in the face of concerted opposition makes his character that much more credible. And it’s impossible to ignore guest star Bobbie Phillips who Dave remembers from her role in The X-Files as Dr. Bambi. 

In our What We're Watching segment, Dave continues with the Danish political drama Borgen and finally figures out why one of the characters looks so darned familiar. Wayne lays it out there that if you’re not watching The Mandalorian, then you should.

In Listener Feedback, Fred from the Netherlands draws parallels with the 1960 science fiction film The Time Machine.

Episode 385 Stargate SG-1 S01E07 The Nox

Join Dave and Wayne for genre television show news, a glimpse into what the hosts are currently watching, commentary and analysis of the classic military science fiction series Stargate SG-1, and our listener feedback. 

This week on the SciFi TV Rewatch podcast we discuss Daniel Jackson’s propensity to put the team and mission at risk so that he can learn his wife’s fate, but it’s the Secretary of Defense’s admission that the teams need to provide tangible evidence of the success of their missions. However,  we all must face the idea that Stargate Command, and by extension its teams, may not always be viewed as the good guys as they traverse the universe.

In our What We're Watching segment, Dave completes his rewatch of The X-Files Season 11 and sets out on a long overdue rewatch of the HBO series Band of Brothers. Wayne’s excitement over the return of the HBO series His Dark Materials for its second season reminds us why we were so taken with the show when it debuted last year.

In Listener Feedback, Fred from the Netherlands revists SFTVR’s past with a callback to the realization that actors from Hemlock Grove appear in some unlikely places.
