Stargate SG-1 premiered in 1997 and over the course of eight seasons, the show has developed its own unique mythological superstructure.

Interesting academic discussions of the Stargate franchise, generally focused on Stargate SG-1, although with some mention of Stargate the Movie and Stargate Atlantis. Much of the analysis is stuck in a 1990s frame of reference, which can seem irrelevant or uninteresting to the contemporary reader. The chapters on Samantha Carter perhaps fall the flatest, especially the final chapter in its discussion of "postfeminism".

A little too academic at times. Some of the authors are way too serious. This is a television show after all. And what's with all the hate on Samantha Carter?

As is usually the case with this sort of academic compilation, it's hit and miss. Some of the gender discussions in particular are interesting. Other pieces just devolve into mindless summary (like the article by Young), lack rigor (like MacGregor's piece), or read like an ad for the Stargate RPG (the one by Kyer & Kyer).
