Stargate SG-1: Continuum was a straight or direct to DVD movie that looks like it will be the last time fans will ever see the team together again. There is still hope for one more movie, but it’s not looking good.
The best part of this movie is that it includes some bits with the delightful Richard Dean Anderson as Jack O’Neill and that it does not include much of Claudia Black as Vala mal Doran, the single worst character to ever be a part of this series.
On the whole, I enjoyed the Continuum; however, strangely enough, I have a slight fondness for the first DVD movie made, The Ark of Truth. At any rate, Anderson’s return is exciting, tempered, however, by his somewhat short screen presence.
In truth, Anderson only has three extended scenes in the entire movie, which frustrates fans because he was so eager to return to the role. It’s a waste of his talent, that’s for sure.
I would have to say that the best scene is on the submarine when Jack (Anderson’s character) interacts with SG-1. I don’t really want to spoil the plot and to say more would do that. I will say that, once again, it is Anderson and Michael Shanks who just shine when they get to work together. Their rapport and comedic timing is unbeatable.
