This week on the podcast we’re pitting our beloved Stargate against one of our other favorite shows (now becoming a franchise in its own right), Battlestar Galactica! Its the second in our occasional “Versus” podcasts, following last year’s show on Stargate vs. Star Trek. We’ll discuss the very different tones of the shows, their approach to storytelling and long-term arcs, and how viewers become invested in those stories.
We’ll also talk about Stargate Universe as a bit of a departure from the typical Stargate storytelling, closer instead to the dark, dramatic approach of BSG. And of course, we’ll hear what you have to say about these two venerable sci-fi franchises!
