When Teal'c explains the purpose of the Goa'uld long-range visual communication device to SG-1, Jack O'Neill asks if this device gets Showtime.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • Showtime has aired the first five seasons of Stargate SG-1 on its network. Yet the network decided to end its association with Stargate SG-1 at the end of season 5, saying that the show still had a sizeable viewership but could no longer draw new subscribers due to its availability in syndication.[2] At this moment, the Sci-Fi Channel picked up the MGM's offer to continue the franchise.[3]
