    I think the people behind Universe must have known, at least somewhat, how people would react. Stargate fans are very obsessive, and when altering their show so drastically, there was bound to be a strong reaction. I am not condoning all the behaviour, but it is not entirely surprising. And I wouldnt blame Twitter and new ways of communicating as much as the show itself. Just look at all the Star Wars fans who cant accept the prequel trilogy. It was a new story for a new audience, but they cant accept that it is allowed to be different and not necessarily bad (I know this is subjective but that is kind of the point). And there are still Star Trek fans who refuse too watch the new Star Trek movie. And just as a sidenote, I think Dr. Rush is the most attractive character on Universe.

    Just to add a answer to the torrenting issue…

    I admit, i torrent it… Sorry I don’t have an option, like most people outside the US I don’t feel like waiting a year+ for it to come here, if i could watch it online from here sure, if i could by it on iTunes from here sure but i simply don’t get those options… :(

    i also have to torrent, because i have no option
    however i will never support itunes so if they put it another way i will pay but i want Tangible Goods
    im not a tight arse i have spent $875 around their on SG-1 and SGA + the 3 movies
    So if i want to watch SGU i have to find it my own way
    People in Australia get the shaft when it comes to DVD’s and tech in general

    @citac:
    I also have to torrent sadly. Me and my sister usually buy all the merchandise at a later time anyway (We have all 15 seasons of SG-1 and SGA + the 2 SG-1 DVDs + the original Stargate movie)
    And well, it’s not just Australia that “gets the shaft”. My countries closest neighbour is the UK, but AFAIK, there’s no way for us to even register for a Sky subscription, which is really lame.
