Why Stargate’s Sci-Fi Setting Seemed To Get Worse Every Season
Roland Emmerich's 1994 sci-fi drama "Stargate" is the foundation that Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner's beloved series "Stargate SG-1" expands upon.
Wright and Glassner's series drew from existing myths to etch surreal, fantastical worlds, explored by grounded characters dedicated to unraveling the truth about humankind.
Wright explained in a Reddit AMA that it soon became challenging to create new settings, especially ones that were supposed to look like alien planets.
"Yes, it grew increasingly difficult and frustrating to go out into the woods of British Columbia and pretend it was another planet,” Wright said.
He added, “The locations start to feel a little stale after a point, as they all look like remote parts of the same area remodeled to appear like an extraterrestrial world.”
