So I came across this article the other day... 10 Most Underrated Stargate Episodes It's a lot of fun, but I do question some of the episodes included in this list, not because I don't believe they're deserving, but due to the fact I don't consider them underrated.  Maybe by critics or the greater audience…

Welcome to my Time Loop Episode MasterClass

I’ve always been a huge fan of time travel, and especially time loop stories.  One of the very first episodes I wrote for Stargate, with my former writing partner Paul Mullie, was Window of Opportunity, a time loop episode that consistently ranks as Stargate fandom’s all-time favorite episode (a huge achievement when you consider the franchise produced…
