Intriguing. So it shall be on SPACE…funny…they are only now showing season 4 of Atlantis there. In anycase this shall be interesting. All this talk about realism and its difference to science fiction. They will forget things…but they will never forget that it’s not the people that make it sci-fi in this context but the technology and circumstances. -arches brow like Teal’c does-

Looking forward to more info on the Children of the Gods special edition. An audio commentary with RDA should be ‘interesting’.

“So it shall be on SPACE…funny…they are only now showing season 4 of Atlantis there.”

I could be wrong here, but I believe that’s because Astral Media (who run TMN) have first dibs on Canadian broadcast rights- they aired Atlantis around the same time as SkyOne and/or Sci-Fi (you can only get TMN with certain specialty satellite or digital cable packages, though). Space gets the chance to air it a year or more after Astral Media does.

The broadcast agreements for SG1, Universe and the direct-to-DVD releases were/are different, though, so they’re not always behind.

I was wondering what was going on with the CotG re-release. Good to hear some news about that.

The documentary type filming has been done and redone already. Frankly, it’s getting waaaay old. This show has zero vision. There is nothing new for this fan.

Please do it a bit in flashback form like LOST, for crying out loud. Flashbacks is g00d. IN “LOST in Space” WE TRUST.

This is becoming more and more of a BSG ripoff every day. I really hope they make it original and I do commend them for trying to be different – but copying a show which is both thematically and tonally different I don’t think is the right solution.

I’m really really really really intrigued =D
The more I know about this show, the more I’m excited!
I hope it will bring back the dark tone of the very first, unforgettable Emmerich’s “Stargate” movie, partially lost in the SG1/SGA series.
Good job, BW & co.!

“we wanted to shoot this a little bit like a documentary crew would shoot a ride-along to a space ship out in the universe” that is” that is word for word what someone said about the shooting style of BSG although some of the things in this put my mind a little at rest but I still don’t have high hopes for another SG1 or SGA, and I think that’s not what they want either :(

(Last post I promise)
I really don’t like the sound of the
‘language’ of documentary
Defiantly not a kids show.
As specially as swearing is band in our house, I’m assuming it will be worse (language wise) than the early season of SG1.

@Christopher:

Then why post here Christopher? If has “zero vision” and there is “nothing new” for you, then why post to begin with?

They got their wish, at least, they got to play with gay characters, they canceled an entire show to play with gay characters, lets through some pedos and porn stars in their and make it anything but a suore, bastards. On a happier note, I’m getting over my Stargate addiction.

Coremae

or even better, lets through side some morally strong characters who have opinions on such things, or even better yet, i’ve never seen a gate member use the toilet, now’s the time.

Do you have something against gay characters? And I KNOW you are not seriously saying we’re all pedophiles ARE you?

Bapman

You what gets to me is this whole ‘gay character’ deal. So some characters are gay… whoop dee doo… how does that EVEN matter !? Does being gay or straight give them some seperate powers? NO? Then its not important. Bringing a person’s sexual preference to the front n beat a drum over it is lack or creativity n exploitation like ‘Blackula… check it out… Dracula who’se black’. It doesn’t matter whether they are gay straight or bi. What matters are the stories the characters and oh ofcouse… SPACE BATTLES !!! And About the people b|tching about SGU trying to… Read more »

It’s becoming clear that SGU is going to be a more highly symbolic-oriented show. Even though the 2 previous series were very symbolic, they also had the ability to explore the many different aspects of the human experience through the vehicle of science fiction. But I worry that the situational nature of the premise will not allow the writers to bring that experience “down to earth” enough for the show to get a long term grasp on viewer interest. Despite having a physical storyline “bridge” with the ability to use a stargate or the Ancient comm. device, it *appears* to… Read more »

Orion Coran,

Because I am a fan of the franchise and I’m not spoon fed everything Stargate. I wish to voice my disatisfaction with the way the franchise has been run into the ground. If you don’t like it then ignore me.

I bet the screenplay and character development is going to be like lost, the tv show. any money says it will. As for Balttle star style….it makes me sleepy

How convenient, I device that lets them talk with loved ones back on Earth. Just in case the writers get bored, and have no idea what to do with the characters, like LT Ford, so they can tell Earth stories, their favourite fallback position.

BSG rip off yes I agree at best, just horrible at worse. To Cooper & Wright, this is Rubbish with a capital R I’m sorry but this is not want I want from a Stargate show. NO THAT WAS Stargate SG1 and Atlantis. So sad that for me this now end like this, so sad.

Goodbye

Docu type of filming OMG!!!! Well that’s a turn off for a start.

If I wanted to watch Firefly I would have, if I wanted to watch BSG I would have, if I wanted to watch a reality show I would have.

NO I wanted to watch Stargate, an used to with SG1 & SGA, this is NOT Stargate. Unless you include the fact its got Stargate in the title that’s the only likeness.

As for Gay Characters, I don’t see the point of telling me what my characters are doing in the bedroom. A person’s sex life should be kept private. The only reason for mentioning it is to try and normalize a type of behavior that a small percentage of people engage in. If you are going to mention that, then have characters prascticing the Egyptian rituals of having sex with children, animals, and even trees, but I won’t watch it even if it is a heterosexual couple because I don’t need to know what my characters are doing in their bedrooms,… Read more »

I wanted to add that most people on this planet still have politically incorrect opinions regarding homosexual acts which they regard as immoral, including me. In spite of the fact that we get called names and told we don’t have a right to our opinion, by a society that tells everyone that there is no truth and everyone is entitled to their opinion except the ones who aren’t, we will be the one not pouring our hard earned cash into the new series, or watching the series if it insists on using the series as a political soap box.

ITS NOT EVEN ORIGINAL, “bloody hell” what where they thinking or perhaps they weren’t. I’ll go back now and tell anyone that will stand still long enough “WHAT A LOAD OF… Read more »
