As a fan of all of the Stargate TV shows I approached this 10 episode web-series with some doubts but also with a open mind.
I have now watched all 10 episodes and can say it is quite watchable but is limited by the lower budget than the rest of the Stargate shows.
It is one of those dreaded prequel series that seem to coming back into vogue at the moment set in 1928 in Egypt, the main characters being Catherine Langford, the daughter of Professor Paul Langford – the person who originally discovered the Stargate.
The first five episode are weaker that the last five with lower production value and the actors finding their feet, the bad guys this time are mostly the Nazi’s who make nice change.
Is this as good as the other Stargate show?….no but it was never meant to be a full on TV show and more a introduction back into the Stargate universe.
Hopefully MGM will hook up with Netflix or some other streaming network and get a new show up and running. I would say this is worth a watch but dont go in with high expectations.
Rating: 5.5 out of 10
There is a new Lost in Space show now on Netfix, just watched the first episode not too bad so far.
Will give my review once I have watched the other nine episodes.
I don’t really watch eSports but I have really been getting into the watching the first season of the Overwatch League or OWL for short. I highly recommend to give it a go, but be warned after watching these guys in action playing solo queue competitive will be ruined for you.
Below is a brief description from Wikipedia:
The Overwatch League (abbreviated as OWL) is a professional eSports league for the video game Overwatch, developed by Blizzard Entertainment which also oversees the League. The Overwatch League aims to follow the model of traditional North American professional sports, using a set of permanent teams and regular season play, rather than the use of promotion and relegation used commonly in other eSports leagues. Each team franchise is backed by an owner, and players that are signed onto the team are assured a minimum annual salary, benefits, and a portion of winnings and revenue-sharing based on how that team performs in the season.
The League was announced in November 2016, and the first twelve teams were established within a year from that. The first season started regular season play in January 2018, to run through June 2018, followed by post-season playoffs and an All-Star weekend to occur in July. A total prize pool of US$3.5 million is available to teams within the first season.
