The "Name that Movie/TV Show I Can't Name" Thread

The following’s a movie I remember having watched when I was about six years old.

It was some '70s exploitation flick about a long-haired, bearded trucker who had a ladyfriend with short dark hair. The movie ended with the guy crossing an unsafe bridge in his rig, whereupon his truck blew up or blew out or the bridge collapsed or something like that and he was killed. His ladyfriend survived, as she hadn’t been in the truck with him. I recall the last shot of her showing her with some other guys, smiling/laughing, which I found strange, 'cause I thought she’d liked the trucker.

I believe I figured out which movie this is. Convoy.

Anyone know which movie this gif’s from?

Stargate SG-1 (Season 2)

Better than Season 1. I’ll go so far as to say it’s almost good, but not quite. Perhaps if I was watching through this series for the first time, I’d be less critical. But I used to be a diehard SG-1 fan; I’ve watched every episode from Seasons 1-6 and multiple episodes from Seasons 7-9. I know that lot of the stuff I loved about Season 2 are either never touched upon again or are taken in directions I don’t care for in subsequent seasons.

EPISODE RATINGS

  • “The Serpent’s Lair” – 7/10
  • “In the Line of Duty” – 7/10
  • “Prisoners” – 5/10
  • “The Gamekeeper” – 6/10
  • “Need” – 6/10
  • “Thor’s Chariot” – 6/10
  • “Message in a Bottle” – 6/10
  • “Family” – 5/10
  • “Secrets” – 6/10
  • “Bane” – 7/10
  • “The Tok’ra: Part 1” – 6.5/10
  • “The Tok’ra: Part 2” – 6.5/10
  • “Spirits” – 6/10
  • “Touchstone” – 7/10
  • “The Fifth Race” – 7/10
  • “A Matter of Time” – 8/10
  • “Holiday” – 8/10
  • “Serpent’s Song” – 6/10
  • “One False Step” – 8/10
  • “Show and Tell” – 7/10
  • “1969” – 6/10
  • “Out of Mind” – 6/10

Stargate SG-1 isn’t better than the original film. They’re equally flawed in almost diametrically opposite ways. That’s not to say they aren’t good in their own way or watchable, 'cause they are.

Since rewatching the 1st season and most of the 2nd of SG-1, I’m inclined to say the film is actually better than the series, if only marginally. The production values, the writing, the abhorrent lack of continuity with the film, and the depiction of the US military as this benign/honourable force with only a few bad apples incessantly gets under my skin.
