Completely different from all other SGAs yet still retains some of the good comedy/mythology. The music is amazing... sucks me in.

isnt SGU a Voyager ripoff?
Oct. 5, 2010, 11:48 a.m. CST
I've seen a few episodes of SGU, and so far it's been a ripoff of Star Trek Voyager! So a crew of spaceship gets stranded in a galaxy far far away from home (check) Once and a while shows characters from the other Stargates shows to keep fans interested (check) now has some enemies on the ship that will most likely become crewmembers (maybe check). On it's own merrits I've found the show slow, and lacks what the SG1 and Stargate atlantis found so appealing. SG1 lasted 10 great seasons, Atlantis had 5. My guess is that SGU will last maybe past this season to a third unless it changes pace quickly. After that the producers most likely come up with a new series that will serve as a prequel to SG1! How original.

get rid of those alliance assholes, lose those stones that let them contact earth, kill the asian chick and the fat nerd, have them totally isolated and having to visit weird planets to scavenge for supplies.<p>kill off that goofy black guy too, hell kill them all except Begbie and add a new cast. that moping medic broad needs to go too.
Oct. 5, 2010, 11:55 a.m. CST
I thought the whole reason they cancelled SG1 and Atlantis was to make straight to DVD movies. The SG1 movies were okay since they wrapped up storylines, but Atlantis still needs one or two to bring a conclusion to the wraith.

The show has been dreadful. Boring as hell. Might has well call it Voyage of the BattleStargate. The show takes the worst elements from BSG, Stargate and Voyager sucks all the humor out and gives us a show with almost no gate use. Wooooooot Woooooot. Big giant turd. I keep watching because I loved the previous incarnations and hope at some point it will change.
Oct. 5, 2010, 12:10 p.m. CST
---possible spoilers--- I do watch the show, but it annoys the Hell out of me. They stole the serious style from Battlestar, but still write the same predictable scripts as the other SG shows. I see what they tried to do last week. They had to think of a way to get rid of CJ's baby so they didn't have to keep it on the show. But what they did was terrible. An episode of UFO from 40 years ago let one of the main character's kid die because they had to fight the aliens. That's 40 years ago. SGU wants to be edgy, but only in tone not in story. And did they not plan for Rhona Mitra to finish out her role? Why not just shoot the 2nd part of the cliffhanger at the same time as the 1st? Instead, we don't see her, just hear that she's dead, and then the 1 dimensional evil, bald henchmen takes over with no real plan except to kill everyone. If they had abandoned Rhona on a planet, at least they could have the annoying villain-that-outstays their-welcome that SG loves so much (Ba'al or Apophis from SG1. Kolya & Michael on Atlantis). Elyse Levesque's character is useless, but they're obviously going to do something alieny with her now. But please, kill off the dude she's sleeping with, Lt. Scott. He's the worst of the military guys (one-note, angry Greer is a close 2nd but at least he likes to shoot things). He should've been court martialed or spaced long ago. Almost every week he questions his orders. And please God, stop with the awful indie rock montages in the last act. I have to fast forward through those sections because they are so bad (actually, all shows need to stop the song montages. It just feels like you're trying to sell the soundtrack to your show, with songs that just aren't that good). Gee, this has turned into quite the little rant. But I still watch the show because I want to see some scifi (and it's not the worst thing out there) and Eureka & Warehouse 13 are done for the season.
Oct. 5, 2010, 12:19 p.m. CST
This is getting better, it is a lot better than it was. I was getting tired of watching every character break into tears because their underwear wasn't folded the right way. It was kind of silly.

An SGU Talkback and he's not here? Must be spamming other talkbacks with SGU stuff.
Oct. 5, 2010, 1:13 p.m. CST
Yeah let's go Warp 13, devolve into lizard slugs, and mate. Then get fixed and turned back human. Right. And SG:U is so much worse than that. Right. Man some people forget the shit that was that show.
Oct. 5, 2010, 1:15 p.m. CST
They were delayed due to two factors: MGM's financial problems (as the DVD movies are funded by MGM, not Syfy) and the apparent collapse of the direct-to-DVD market (Ark of Truth and Continuum apparently squeezed in just before that happened). The producers are currently pursuing their "Plan B" on getting SG-1: Revolution & SGA: Extinction made (which, I'm guessing, is a combination of Syfy, DVD and internet rentals), though I imagine if the MGM situation gets resolved, you'll see things get fast tracked alongside the next Bond movie since they are MGM's cash cows.

Stop trying to connect it to the other shitty SG shows and let it shine on its own. They're supposed to be isolated for Christ's sake.

That sucks about the Bond movies too!

Hire Nathan Fillion and the rest of the Firefly cast. Then rename the show Firefly and make season 2.
Oct. 5, 2010, 2:50 p.m. CST
Yeah, I said it. Deal with it. If you disagree, then think back to that last episode of BSG..... F---ing ruined the entire series.
Oct. 5, 2010, 2:55 p.m. CST
God I couldn't stand Atlantis, it was almost as bad as ST:Voyager.<br><br> SGU is much better than I expected, but far far behind BSG in every way. It's kind of a guilty pleasure, but I watch it live every week so that says something.
Oct. 5, 2010, 3:06 p.m. CST
There will be many speeches about how bad things are delivered with serious tightly drawn faces. There will be some sort of lame attempt at humor by the fat nerd kid who is a stand in for the AICN sub set of viewers. Lastly there will be a pretentious song played over a montage at the end of the episode that could be generously called trite at the best of times. In between there will be some bad acting, writing and horrid CGI.<p> On the plus side maybe there will be a shot of Lieutenant Titsy McJuggs(the one the gay dude was "banging" before he stared "banging" the senators daughter)in a Tee shirt.

From Yahoo News:<p>"..He was seen running from actor Robert Carlyle's house with a collection of tapes said to contain future episodes of the actor's television show Stargate: Universe.<p>Following a lengthy pursuit, the offender pulled out what was believed to be a weapon and aimed it at the pursuing officers, causing them to fire upon him. The item in his hand was later identified as a Teal'C action figure."<p>RIP DIOXHOLSTERRETURNS (1991-2010

Ok. So most of the cast has moved on to other things (Castle, V, and Chuck) but we can hope! Since Family guy was canceled and brought back a few years later, it might happen one day that Firefly will do the same one day!
Oct. 5, 2010, 4:41 p.m. CST
For what it is universe is good. Cheap fucking syfy show is pretty great to watch. Rush and the Captain are great. Every other character sucks. But Rush and the Captain make it worth watching.
Oct. 5, 2010, 5:02 p.m. CST
I've found a lot of the episodes are like that, and that they don't quite "feel right." I blame it primarily on Justin Louis and Walker Smith. The problem is that the writers want to keep the characters deliberately obscure. Is Rush a good guy or a bad guy? Is Young willing to fuck someone over, or stand by his principles? Is Greer a psycho or tortured as a child, or a loyal grunt to Young? Give us the audience a clear idea of the characters and then make them ambiguous to the other characters. There's complex, and then there's just complicated.<p> And as much as I like Justin Louis (watch him in Highlander literally sniffing a bitch), he seems to be sleepwalking in SGU. I think it's a deliberate choice on his part or the writers, but it's a very boring choice.

probably the best american sci-fi show produced in 2010. not saying much since sci-fi is all but dead on american tv. <p> just would be a damned shame if there were no season 2 of sgu b/c of mgm's cash woes

sorry i hit enter too soon....to continue, i disagree with the notion that a bridge would be a detriment. after all on several episodes of stargate atlantis it showed every ancient ship as having a bridge, so why would destiny be any different.
Oct. 5, 2010, 10:30 p.m. CST
It's a good show. Some people are just impossible to please and love to complain. When they came out of warp at the end, it seemed that that writers were going 'dimension hopping' next. I like the show, but where else can they travel?
Oct. 5, 2010, 11:21 p.m. CST
That would be cool, its to bad they killed off the pilot though in the movie. I guess that theyw ould just have to get a new one.

In The Thing TB someone referred to him... though there was no post to refer to from Diox... <p> ...didn't step back fast enough from the incoming wormhole
Oct. 6, 2010, 3:20 a.m. CST
But Diox WILL return! <p> Imagine, now that he's gone, a SGU TB is born? Noooooo f***** way, he'll let this slip through his fingers... <p> Diox has a way of showing up, when you least expect him!

in the replies. The author went to the Pegasus Galaxy - or beyond...

.........Have they killed off the fat role playing gimp yet?.... I watched the first few episodes and hated it partly because of him , partly because it was "BSG light".... I'm a massive Robert Carlyle fan so I would have another look if its gotten any better....

Just read Xiphos_2 comment (funny as fuck) so I guess thats a no then. Zzzzzzzzz.......

By replies do you mean talkback posts like these? Thats where I found his posts on another talkback in AICN.

The "author" Dioxholsterreturns is gone like the "author" paburrows. We all can find him on AICN also, but his own posts have been removed, as you probably have already found out...

Justion Louis/Luis Ferreria (whichever he is calling himself these days) is a bore and a lousy actor. I feel like when he talks I am going to doze off. <p>The only good thing other than Carlyle is the not Ming-Wa asian chick because I have a thing for asian chicks</p>
