I've just about finished the first season of SG-1, and so far, I haven't been blown away. The episodes have been pretty good, some of them really interesting, but they have been basically Stargate-planet-of-the-week stories.
I'm still waiting for that feeling that I can't wait for the next episode. I felt pretty much the same way while watching the "Fringe" DVDs. The first season was like that until they started the continuing story of the alternative universe and the almost identical characters over there.
So I'm hoping that there will be some kind of cliffhanger at the end of Season 1 that will make me want to immediately plug in the first disk of Season 2.
I'll keep you posted.
