The Stargate series takes the principle of the Stargate movie and expands upon them using the same characters and in some cases the same actors to explain the presence of religion on Earth. They have explored the Cananite religion, primarily Egyptians, Norse and Chrisitian.
It is the longest running American Sci Fi series. And both series have had my attention though I favored the realism of Stargate Atlantis.
I'm not sure about this new series it seems contrived and inmature. But we will see.
