“Cos these are the days of our lives
They’ve flown in the swiftness of time
These days are all gone now but some things remain
When I look and I find – no change”

It’s almost like Queen wrote this song in Parody of SGU.

I kind of like the references to Star Wars and the other older sci fi shows they’ve used so far. It reminds me of “Chuck” and the 80’s ad 90’s references that those writers use. It helps lighten the show up a bit. I hope they kill off some of the cattle tonight. Right now there are too many nameless people milling around. We aren’t going to get to know 90 people, lets kill a few of them off!

I heard this was going to be a good episode so I tuned in. I really shouldn’t have bothered as it turned out as awful as the others I watched. I think for me it’s the characters. I couldn’t care less about any of them. The writers can put in as much action now as they want and it won’t make the slightest difference to me. On previous shows I connected and liked the characters instantly and would be distraught at the thought of any of them dying. In Time I couldnt have cared less if half of them died.… Read more »

I thought this was a huge improvement over previous episodes, this one made me feel more optimistic about the show. More action and cool sci-fi concepts. Dont care about character-drama myself, just the stories/concepts and this delivered that so im happy.

Okay. This proves it. This episode was AMAZING. And the SGU nay sayers that say that even this episode sucks they have just proved that no matter what the show did they would hate it. This episode had great sci-fi story, great camera work, great acting and really great mood to go with the story. The nay sayers hated the sex-romantic scenes in previous episodes and wanted more of, what they call, sci-fi elements. Well there were no romantic parts and the story was “totally sci-fi”. The previous episodes were nothing compared to this one. This one actually rivals the… Read more »

Nikst Why do you care what others think of the show. Why does every SGU thread disolve into attacking the people who don’t like this show. If you love it good for you but please respect other peoples opinions. I tried this episode because I thought I may come to care about these characters more, but I didnt. The characters are the most important part of the show for me. If I don’t like them why would I care what happens to them. Just because the writers have suddenly infused some action into the show doesn’t make it any better… Read more »

@blackhawlk: Okay then. Let’s be honest. How many episodes of SGA or SG1 did it take for you to care for the teams? SG1 for me took better part of the first season. SGA kind of came in parts. McCay who I loved eventually took almost the entire first season for me to care about him. First he came off as an arrogant prick. But now he is one of the characters I love the most, only second to Jack Oneil and perhaps Daniel Jackson. Now when I look at the first season of both shows I care about the… Read more »

This episode was slightly better but was still weak. The kino camera action was annoying. The characters are still worthless and weak. I did enjoy seeing most of them die, however. The plot was weak and the ending was an easy stroke of the pen. The tie between the ailment and the creature’s venom was a silly plot tactic that stretched things beyond reason. How convenient. The boo hoo scene with Eli and the blond Lieutenant reacting to Cloe’s death was silly. The only one I have respect for is the Marine Master Sergeant (who should be addressed as Master… Read more »

Finally, after 7 duds in a row, it seems the shows writers got something right. This was the first episode of SGU that I was able to actually sit through, and dare I say it, enjoy. Still, it was far from being great or even very good. But I would say that it was above average, and definitely the best episode so far. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. The Good. What really made this episode good is that it was everything the previous episodes were not, and at the same time it was nothing like the previous episodes.… Read more »

I felt what you call “character development” was too blunt, and didn’t keep with the subtle way it was done in the previous episodes – fact some people didn’t notice how much real character development was in the previous episodes is sad. However seeing how all is reset at the end of the episode, and the situation in which they where in, I can forgive them, and hope the show returns to the awesome subtle way of the previous episodes. Still liked it very much! I wonder what the ratings will be for this one.

On second thoughts though (while watching it for the second time) I think the subtelties are still there – apart from the blunt “I’m this and that” talking.

Long time Nay sayer and SGU hater.. To start with, I was visiting (yet again, yes, I am not antisocial), and decided to watch the episode. Okay, it was better than the previous excuses for Stargate, but as much as it did captivate me, hasn’t this time loop/ imminent danger thwarted by “message in a bottle” been whipped to death before? also when i saw everyone dying, I thought there would be an episode titled “Medicine” in the future. I was also afraid that someone might suggest everyone have wild sex, “’cause the endorphins released while having sex, actually kills… Read more »

I’m confused. This episode kinda dead-ended. In watching the previews for next week I did not see anything related to the end of this episode, yet this episode did not really have an end. I cannot believe that SGU is almost to an end for the season and we still don’t have a grip on it. In my opinion it’s a big mistake to split this up. Maybe after it had been on for a couple of years….. I’m not a big fan of this show yet but for the reviewer who compared it to “V”, she is off her… Read more »

I would suggest reading the posts about this episode on the forum there like miles ahead of these comments lol Anyway I enjoyed this episode, like others have said it did have a more “Stargate” feel to it than the episodes previously. This one had: sci-fi elements, action & hostile aliens which is what some people have been saying the previous episodes lacked. Some people picked up on the end being a cliffhanger: What more do we need to know? Its easy to create your own explanation and assume that LT Scott’s plan worked: He sends the Kino through the… Read more »

Would the writers – pulllleeaseee pick up the pace. Seven episodes of character development is killing me. A huge fan of all the series and this is excruciatingly painful to watch. This is like watching Lost and BSG combined. You are going to lose a lot of huge fans this keeps up. Please, get this story moving.

I just watched the episode, ‘Time’. It was another pointless episode. What little morsel of emotion the writers try and glean from these characters is forced and sooooooo obviously fake. I feel nothing for these characters unless it would be contempt. The only thing that was the least bit entertaining was the death of many of the characters, especially Chloe. Regrettably, she and the other characters don’t stay dead. Of course, before the character of Chloe ‘died’ I told my family that she wouldn’t die, because they need this character to take her clothes off every week…. and guess what… Read more »

. If you haven’t been following Brad Wright has stated that this will be the last ever franchise for this series, he said if this series doesn’t work he will move onto something else. Besides Stargate. Just letting you know this. She doesn’t take her clothes off in every episode, although I haven’t seen it but what my friends have told me is that she doesn’t take her clothes off in every episode. But I do respect your opinion about the show. :)

Perhaps, you didn’t see the ending did you? She died twice in this episode. Maybe you didn’t see that.

To all negative poster, ok please do point out what things would you like to see more of? Y

@Chevron Atlantis. There’s nothing wrong with Negative posting. If the world was full of “Yes Men” (or women), there’d be no progress in the world. Sometimes mac ‘n cheese and a glass of pop is just is not good enough. Steak ‘n Potatos with bruised Asparagus in butter sauce with a glass of Australian Shiraz maybe preferred by people with more discerning taste. :D

What he really means is that he wants things to be the way they used to be with SG 1 and SGA because he doesn’t like a version of Stargate that is different.

No, Nikst, it had Eli bawling over Chloe, and most of this reset episode has been seen over and over (depending on how old you are).
If would be nice if the old writers could come up with something that would fill even old viewers with a sense of wonder.

, that’s exactly what I’ve been saying. The SGU cheerleaders doesn’t want it to look anything like the Previous 2 series, but it’s okay to beat that “time loop” horse to death, and high sci-fi. And I was wondering, did anyone catch the similarities between the worm monsters and the original goa’uld symbiot?

Nikst

and GateHunter: So what you are saying is that now time-loop and other time-related things are off limits. Nobody can ever use it, EVER. But you want action, space battles and character development so that you actually care for the characters? But wait, that’s been done before, what now?

You know what, answer or don’t, either way I’m not going to. There’s no point in talking to you about SGU because you will never admit that ANYTHING about it is good. It’s not a perfect show, not even close, but hey, I don’t know any show that is.

Really? Brad Wright said he isn’t coming back? Maybe a new producer assigned by MGM (owner of the franchise last I checked) will give an infusion of creativity.

As for the episode: I think I’ll review it on the Forums, but suffice it to say I enjoyed this one WAY more than the first six.

@Nikst. No it’s not that. of course the time loop story can be re-told, many a time. But that’s not Original Material. It’s a “cop out” way to tell a story. Let’s see. a show is approx 45 minutes, time loop happens 3 -4 times, total material shown would be approx 15-20 minutes, right (because it is repeated)? so not only it’s un-original, it’s downright lazy as well. it’s like “Let me tell tell you a short story, 3 times, with a minor twist each time”. It’s not like they explored 3 different time lines, because of a different person’s… Read more »

@US06154: All right I’ll answer, even though I said I wouldn’t. I didn’t see the time-loop thing as being the center of the episode. The dark mood, the scary aliens and the character development was the center of the episode, IMO. The time-thing was just a tool that they used. Is that what you didn’t like? Why? The same story three times? Are you serious? The first one was watched by the characters at the same time as we watched it. And the second started before the first was done, but they were more or less on the ship the… Read more »

@ US06154 True, that’s why I said that I respect everyone’s opinion. But they negative posters need to state their claims constructively, rather than bashing the show in an immature way at least that’s what I think.

. Yes Brad Wright did say this

“9. What will you do if Universe is canceled after the first season? Do you have other SG spin-off plans?”

BW: If SGU gets cancelled after the first season I will be shocked, and I will likely move on to something else.”
