Every week I consider calling in, but I never have. I really should have this time. There is no one on the podcast who has the same opinion as I do on this subject.

I agree, you need a woman’s point of view on this topic.
Thank you though, for this weeks podcast.

I personaly think its too much of sex and drama all over this series. We can watch Desperate Housewifes for that!

Sex scenes are fine. I think they are used too much on Universe. There are too many love triangles. The show has even surpassed battlestar galactica in that area! It’s absurd.

Using someone else’s body for sex is rape. The fact that it hasn’t been addressed so far and that the characters have no problem doing it is one of the biggest mistakes on Universe.

Wow, I WAS dissapointed with the obvious bias. After listening into the podcast, for the first time I felt old, and my sensibilities outdated. I listen to podcasts while driving to and from work, and after a few minutes of the podcast, I was driving in a red haze. Not sure if it was David or the guest, playing the part of the Illuminati (the enlightened). I dare this guy to say the same load of hogwash he said on the podcast in front of his significant other. I want him to think about the other side of the story.… Read more »

To the charge of “bias” and a lack of objectivity: I don’t get it. The show is about our opinions. We’re biased and unobjective in that we have them. I didn’t know what David and Kevin’s opinions were before the show started, and I was pleasantly surprised toward the end that we had such divergent views on personhood. The show is also about the opinions of those who choose to call in and have their voices heard. We played every call we got this week, and honestly I was surprised that we didn’t hear anything from those who outright hate… Read more »

Agree with Darren.

A lot of those who do like SGU & saying positive things about it don’t have some secret motive of working with MGM/SyFy trying to promote the show. Chances are they are just fans who truly believe what they are saying.

“Gateworld obviously takes pride in bringing the fans together for heated discussions(though sometimes sensored)”

Theres a fine line between a ‘heated discussion’ and an all out argument.

The stargate franchise started as series with a nude scene. Well that perfectly in line with scifi part of the show. So funtional scifi nude it started with SG1. In SGU yes there are a few short sex scene. More you get a idea they doing it. But it short. Just enough as a statement that they have a intemit relation. As charbuilding part. The drama and characterbuilding is to big part as awhole and take a lot of screen time away. That it drive lot of old viewers away. Sex scenes are just a tiny part of that. So… Read more »

ok, I have to put my 2 cents in here. I’m getting just a little sick of hearing the justification for all this sex on SGU just because the very very very first episode of SG1 had a nude scene in it and might I remind everyone that SG1 first aired on Showtime not SciFi. So SG1 started off with a nude scene, so what?!? I have watched every episode of SGU and I think almost if not every episode has had a sex scene and quite frankly I’m sick of it. I completely agree with US06154 in that “As… Read more »

I will say i dont agree on the sex, if i wanted to watch a sci fi with sex scenes i will watch a 18 film. Although I do find the new way very interesting I can see SGU lasting as long as BSG and being forgotten. Im in the UK and i worry SGU will be forgotten. SG1 was all about the characters being friends beating the odds, people love that, most top shows have that way. I have to say I can watch SG1 over and over again and still has not lost its magic. SGU I will… Read more »

The Sg1 and SGA characters were just more fun. Sheppard, Tayla and Ronan were sexy without having sex. I also miss the humor. I would rather watch an SGA re run than SGU. Also, the Wraith were great bad guys. It would have been fun to learn more about them.
