Can Stargate Really Work As A New Show Set In 1928?

Janel Smith writes from San Diego Comic-Con.

Two days ago MGM announced the return of Stargate as Stargate Origins, a new web series available on The 10 episodes will be around 10 minutes long each. The series will follow Catherine Langford from the original Stargate movie and her adventures.

Can Stargate Really Work As A New Show Set In 1928?

At San Diego Comic-Con, they had questions to answer.

The fans in the room were clearly excited to have more Stargate in their lives and the resource of the new website but many questions that remained unanswered. The show takes place after the discovery of the gate in 1928, however they never found the DHD which is the dialing device for the gate and it took them a while to make one. It doesn't seem like they will be able to travel through the Stargate in the show unless they found a work around that was not mentioned, so how exactly will the show work since gatetravel is the centerpiece of the series?

It was also mentioned that if the series goes well that we may get the origin stories of other characters from the lore. Hopefully we will get to see the early lives of many of our favorite characters.
