    I discovered SG-1 a couple of years ago, and watched it intermittently. Then, it vanished for a year. And I found it again last year, and it seems the writing has improved.

    So: Did it get yanked from network TV for a year? Why? Why's it back now? And did they shift funds from FX to writers?

    And maybe it's just me, but it's a whole lot funnier too.

    I also think the show has gotten a whole lot better. Groundhog Day was a excellent episode. [​IMG] I look forward to the release of the last two seasons episodes on dvd. [​IMG]

    On another note, I'd swear that in the last episode Amanda Tapping was using a Pronto as a prop.

    When you refer to last episode, are you talking about the Showtime/SkyOne first run airings or the syndicated Sat Afternoon airings?
