Those suits look very close to the ones in Lost Tribe. https://www.gateworld.net/gallery/displayimage.php?pid=268418&fullsize=1

Hoping to be more impressed with this one, really want to see some cool aliens or more action.

I dunno what people are really complaining about I just really wanna see this episode… it’s the same with all of em, the actors are good the characters are interesting and it’s just gonna be really interesting to see where it all ends up in the end… be it with disaster or cake for all.

Just saw WATER and I thought it was the best yet. An absolutely excellent episode – in my opinion at least.

Great episode. For a second there I thought it’s going to be Scott “saving the day” AGAIN. Was pleasantly surprised that his ass got humbled a bit. As for Eli… I don’t think that running all sad and whiny constitutes mature. Sure he’s glad to be there – that much is obvious, but he also has principles, meaning, he’d rather say the truth and deal with the consequences. Rush just jumps right into “command” and thinks that when he’s in charge he automatically has to make dramatic decisions, without any middle ground or trust. Greer’s back to his sadistic unpredictable… Read more »

The only interesting in this show is how the ratings are and if im right again that this episode will have agan less viewers.

The only thing way this show is not yet on the canceling table is becasue it has the name stargate in it.

Ratings wise feel free to factor this in: Halloween parties (Friday night is fab to have them). In my opinion this has been the best episode so far (Thought Light did come close). Glad to see that Lt James doesn’t get to involved over the whole Chloe and Lt Scott thing. Was kinda obvious that someone was going to fall through the ice (The fact that it was in the comic con trailer for SGU could explain that though). I’m glad to see that we haven’t had a Forest planet yet, they were used far far to much in both… Read more »

SGA s01e01 – Rating 3.2 // SGU s01e01 – Rating 1.7
SGA s01e02 – Rating 3.2 // SGU s01e02 – Rating 1.7
SGA s01e03 – Rating 2.5 // SGU s01e03 – Rating 1.8
SGA s01e04 – Rating 2.5 // SGU s01e04 – Rating 1.6

Im not a SGA fan but a SG1 fan and if i look at the ratings then a noob would see that this show is a fail and it coste also two time more. But what do you expect from people that changed a network name from SciFi to SyFy ^_^

@Outbreaker SGA in the beginning had the advantage of being on right after an SG-1 episode (Which had an established fan base) so there was an extremely high chance that those who were watching the SG-1 episode would keep watching to see what SGA. SGA didn’t have negativity over a cancellation to contend with or have people bashing it before it even aired. SGA also had the same premise as SG-1 (Which made the transition of fans more simple), SGU isn’t: it takes time to establish a fan base for a completely new show. (They did mention that SGU wasn’t… Read more »

SGA did have also negativity because people where pissed because SG1 was stoped because of SGA and im still pissed. And SG1 did also not have a fanbase and the s01e01 has a 3.3 rating.
Like i say without the name Stargate and the “ring-shaped” this show would be Dead.

This capitaliste managers have runingin a good show.

hmm, well I liked this one a bit more than the previous episodes, cool non-humanoid alien and a bit more action and gate-travel ect. Heres hoping it gets better from here on.

SGA’s first season aired when SG-1 was in its 8th season (Nobody knew about the cancellation at this point).

This episode was fantastic, all the right elements and we got to see Young interact with Scott to a greater degree, it shows more of their relationship. I like the fact that Chloe nailed Rush like she did. They showed TJ with the ability to take command with decisiveness. I have to hand it to James, she showed great compassion and understanding in realizing that Chloe and Scott are together. All in all this episode just goes to show that SGU is continuing to evolve and gets better and better. I also thought the “aliens” from Air3 being brought into… Read more »

If i read the SGU comments i read mostly Eli & Chloe are all this comment mad by teenage grils ?
Im really little bit confused about this.

Please Point out the Fantastic Parts in comparison to SG1,SGA or Babylon 5.

Star Trek had an irritating feature (despite being really great!), the episodes where too much, too often unrelated to each other. I’ve sat through all the ST series, and SG1 and SGA and I was very often tired with the “fillers” – that is episodes not related to the main plot, and often wished someone made a list of only the plot related ones so I could skip the “fillers”. So far I’m not seeing that in SGU and I love it. Each episodes flows neatly into the next one. No techno-babble, it’s more “real science” oriented, and people act… Read more »

WTF “real science” & “real behaviour” you joking or what.
There is even no science in this show and they behave like noobs.

Talk of CO2 sequestering substances with the subsequent usage of calcite. Real maneuver’s like gravity assisted acceleration or slowing down with the use of a planets atmosphere. The consideration of alien life as vastly different then what we know (not only animal life – but plant life as well). Facts about stars, they’re temperatures and behaviour. The people, some of them are trained soldiers, but most are cooks, clerks and science personnel not used to life-threatening situations, even if they are SGU personnel, they’re still “the best of the best” in their fields of focus, and not in gun swinging… Read more »

I forgot Young. When interacting with Eli, he acts like a father figure; “clean this room up” etc. While he can’t stand the fact he can’t fix his thing with the wife. Vogel’s Kino-thing was fun(the name Kino is also pretty ingenious). The girl who was afraid of quakes was interesting. You can see Wray is struggling with a situation in which she is no longer in power, and just like Chloe, the stuff they did daily (administration, organising time-tables etc.) has absolutely no value on the ship.

Soap Opera is all i say no “real science” or “real behaviour” for me a show should be entertaining.

It is entertaining for me. If you look at the GateWorld poll, then you’ll notice that 72% voters voted 7 or more on this episode… So apparently they’re also entertained. Fortunately, all the previous polls show the same tendency.

Most people how don’t like a show will simply ignore it.
I look a the reall show ratings that’s what counts and not a fan poll.

Didn’t see the episode (just read the episode review). So, how much of Ice was mined? a few metric Tonnes? Since water Converted to Ice actually grows in Volume (Simple Science), Ice converted back to water will be less volume. So given that 1 cubic meter = 1000 litres, how much ice was mined, so that they could survive? (also given, a person requires 2-2.5 litres of water to stave off dehydration). if 50 people are on board, that means rations of 100-125 litres/day. a Cubic meter of Ice would provide less than 10 days of water for the crew.… Read more »

If I remember correctly there’s a recycling system on board Rush is trying to activate. They got rid of the “leakage” they had (don’t want to spoil the story here), and they got two or three loads approx 1m x 1.5m x 1m.
