'Sup Wit Dis Teal'c Fella?
When I was a kid on Okinawa, we used to watch Armed Forces Radio and Television Services (AFRTS). The programming was from the U.S. but it was usually two or three years old. I get the same kinda thing here in Panamá; we see some of the same programs folks watch in the U.S., but the programs are two or three years old, or in this case, almost ten years old.
TeleMax, Canal 9, has started showing Stargate SG-1, and I enjoy it. We are just now a few episodes into the second season. However, there are a few things I don't understand: why is it that the stargates on all the worlds are only located in arid deserts or in temperate zones? The Goa'uld simply can't take the tropical heat, or are they allergic to rum? Also, why the heck are the majority of the worlds only populated by white people? It seems that on almost every world, people of colour are in the minority. This doesn't make sense; people of colour are not the minority on this planet, so why would they suddenly be few and far between on the thousands of worlds on which the Goa'uld have visited and set-up housekeeping? Will the answer to these questions be revealed in other seasons, or am I the only person bothered by this stuff? I also don't understand why everyone speaks English, no matter where they go (well, if I switch off the SAP, it appears that everyone speaks español no matter where they go!).
Please answer these questions in the comments, unless you are from White Plains, New York; I'm pretty sure that this show isn't spreading hepatitis C or any other STDs.
I See You!
