“Meanwhile on Stargate, 95% of planets are Canada”

Martin Rezny has written an interesting article titled “The Expanse – A Milestone in Sci-Fi Television” about the appeal of “hard” sci-fi shows like the TV adaptation of the Expanse books by James S. A. Corey. I started reading the book series and I’m enjoying it.

I won’t rehash Rezny’s article, it’s worth reading it in its entirety, but his basic premise is that hard sci-fi (more realistic sci-fi) can be so much more interesting and entertaining than the usual sci-fi we are accustomed to. The main reason why I mentioned this article is because I wanted to share a quote that made me laugh because it is so true:

Meanwhile on Stargate, 95% of planets are Canada.

That said, my wife and I watched every episode of every Stargate series (except the animated one) and loved them.
