Sorry I hate that show after seeing the first 2 parts it thats not SciFi it was a cheap knock off of Star Trek Voyager meets Battlestar Galactica plus Lost.

Finding PPL via Computer games… “Last Starfighter rings a Bell”?

Wonderfully original, but deeply rooted in Stargate mythos. I saw it as refreshing and extremely well done.

Arnoldrimmer, Voyager and BSG are really just space knockoffs of “The Odyssey” — does that make them any less unique? Let SGU find its voice before you so easily dismiss it.

BeckyK we will see!! dont forget some of us Trekkies/Fiver love a good SciFI story and not a Story about “emotions from the characters” and SciFi-Story is just the Carrier as it was with BSG.

Or see Defing Gravity..

I watched the launch with high hopes for a stellar Stargate experience. So far my opinion lies somewhere between “okay” and “meh”.

It does have some potential, and there were some really cool moments in the first two parts, but it doesn’t take a genius to know that three seasons will probably be the most this one makes. I’ll stay tuned to see where it goes and where it ends up. Hopefully, this won’t be the nail in the Stargate coffin everybody thinks it will be.

While not blown away, it definitely deserves a chance to fully spin up. I think there’s great potential here. My biggest problem is with the tie in to previous gates. Why didn’t the hammond do more? Was it not fully functional? The beam weapons should have been able to obliterate the Hataks in orbit. So I would say future tie ins (if any) need to hold true to the storylines thus far.

I kept getting interrupted while watching it. However initially I thought they had some interesting ideas, even if they were borrowed. I was hoping it wouldn’t be dark or soap opera-ee, or even like Battlestar Galactica. I was actually curious about Robert Carlyle’s character and that is what made me interested in watching SGU. I’ll give it alittle while longer because obviously and hopefully the writers will get all those characters to “bond” and grow on us. I really wish TV would give us some romance nowadays. And be family friendly. I wasn’t expecting it to be like my favorites,… Read more »

I thought it was ok. Would’ve much preferred to see a new episode of Atlantis though. Will give it a chance anyway, reminds me a lot of voyager.

10 reasons Why Stargate universe sucks SGU sucked so bad Gateworld is now screening critics and Syfy even turned off new account activation so I am now posting this all over the web. 1. Wrong name – should have called it “Lost Battlegate Atlantica’s Anatomy Voyager”. 2. Confusing – Scrambled the sequence with unnecessary flashbacks and cause confusion, this only works if there is a big mystery, not the 15 minutes tiny mystery in SGU (Trying to copy Lost) 3. Lacks originality – Tried too hard to please everyone and ended up being a pile of nothing. As if the… Read more »

6. Boring – Characters don’t stick, because they’re all average clueless brain damaged amateurs and a loud mouth, everyone hates loud mouths. 7. Shaky cameras – Dude, stay the **** still. 8. Careless – With plot holes the size of Texas. 9. Too greedy – Crossed the fine line between bravery and stupidity, introducing new stuff to reach wider audience is understandable, ditching everything that was good and piss off loyal fans to the brand itself is just plain stupid. 10. Bad acting – Soulless characters, cardboard acting, but what can you expect from a pilot with a lame script.… Read more »

I have seen every episode of Stargate multiple times, but after four episodes of SGU, I find it to be the worst opening to a show in a long time. If it wasn’t for the presence of a space ship, I would swear I was watching “The Days of Our Lives”. All I can say is this show may be about the characters more as they were trying to sell it, but it is WAY to overly dramatic. Dr. Rush is just ridiculous. All the screaming, ranting and growling at everyone is really just getting old already. Stargate Universe is… Read more »

Wow, this is surreal. Stargate: Universe is the kind of show that Episode 200 mocked about. There is a particular quote at the end of that very episode that I rather enjoy: Science fiction is an existential metaphor that allows us to tell stories about the human condition. Isaac Asimov once said, “Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinded critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction, its essence, has become crucial to our salvation, if we are to be saved at all.” However, SGU seems to have forgotten that entirely.… Read more »

I thoroughly enjoyed the original Stargate SG1 and even more so Atlantis.

As for Stargate Universe, well I have to say it really sucks. It’s boring and unoriginal. Either beef it up or scrap it before it’s too late

Stargate Universe is a disgusting show of homo-sexual, adulteress, fornicating, and immoral acts. It should be canceled and prevented from airing again.

Come on guys this show isn’t that bad. It’s got some good… who am I kidding, this show sucks big time. I hate it with every fiber of my being. It should be canceled immediately. What in the world was Scifi thinking. Everyone involed in this poor excuse for Stargate should be fired. If they can’t come up with a decent Stargate, don’t dishonor the name. Leave it alone.
