Just rented Ark of Truth from iTunes

For $3.99 not a bad Star Gate episode. Pretty good FX and plot.

Worth the time if you are a SG1 fan.

Capsule non-spoiler review:

Slightly better for Stargate fans than Peacekeeper Wars was for Farscape fans.

Kinda slightly. But the margin is definitely there.

I rented it in HD when it first came out - it was a good episode but not one I'd watch again. I just bought Stargate Contiuum on DVD - it got better reviews than Ark of Truth. Hopefully Stargate Universe becomes a reality.

I still cannot bring myself to watch SG as it was the show that supplanted Farscape on SciFi.

supplanted Farscape ? Dude, it ran LOTS longer. Heck, Lexxx supplanted Farscape.

Or are you just thinking that that's where Ben went after the Farscape gig stopped ?

Nope. Farscape was canceled. And Stargate was put in its place and given high priority. Lexx was on after Farscape.

no, Tremors replaced Farscape. Now that still shakes me to my core : )

The plot was decent and I guess I liked it well enough, but it didn't really have the feeling of a feature length movie to me; it was like any other episode. Some of the set design looked a little low-budget, and there was a scene where Teal'c was trekking about that struck me as being a little cheesy. I'm hoping for a slight improvement with Continuum.

Your timeline re. Stargate and Farscape isn't right. Stargate ran from 1997 to 2007 [www.imdb.com] and Farscape ran from 1999 to 2003 [www.imdb.com]
