Good as spin-offs go, but does it compare?

Pros:Good special effects, easy to get into.

Cons:Kinda repeats SG-1's stories.

Plot Details: This opinion reveals no details about the movie's plot.

To answer my question, you have to look at a few points, such as:
~> is there a storyline that the creators of SG-1 haven't used? SGA can seem a little too familiar at times.
~> can the new cast compare to the established members og SG-1? They make a good attempt, though at times you draw similarities again.
~> is it worth the money? If you've already watched SG-1, then you may get bored and not think so, however if you're new to the Stargate family, then I suggest watching SGA just before, or even alongside SG-1.

It's a good tv-show, and most sci-fi fans will enjoy it, though it lacks the originality that SG-1 has/had.
