I for one don’t want SGU to be like SG1 and SGA, I want it to be its own thing.

SGU is the dark version of SG1 just like DS9 was the dark version of Trek. Let it be its own thing and tell its story the way it needs to be told.

For my money, I prefer the characters to act as true-to-life as normal people would. That said, different people have different personalities and the interest comes from having them interact in realistic and interesting ways.

This is great. While there were funny moments in season one (albeit some of them contrived, for example, my friend and I kept laughing every time Rush and Young kept saying “For the sake of the Crew” for half of the season), the show really does need more humor. I’m also excited to see the show go for depth rather than breadth, if done right, it can be a really good show. Personally, I didn’t like season one of SGU, but I loved SG1 and SGA so much that I think if anyone can pull it off right, they can.… Read more »

Thank god. I’ve been hoping they would change the style of the show to at least somewhat fit into the Stargate universe. Season 1 did have some good episodes but there was still WAY to much drama. I’ve had enough of the secrets between crew members and the romances. It really need to pull from its Stargate roots. Add some adventure, team work, some actual sci-fi like Carter/McKay’s science knowledge, add to the mythology of the Stargate universe and some humor(O’Neill and Sheppard style).

This is great news. I really hope its true.

Wright just did the impossible, he convinced me to keep watching.

I can see most people here wanted SG-1 Season 16 instead of something new.

Unfortunately, for me it’s just too little, too late. This SG fan gave up on the show a long time ago.

They changed the premise of a SG series too much and lost viewers. Now they want to change what they established again – but I don’t think it’ll gain them viewers, the show’s just too serialized, you can’t jump in whenever you want and know what’s going on. I’m afraid, this change will cost them more viewers than they’ll gain…

But good luck to its fans.

I wonder if this isn’t just PR spin. And I still find it amusing some people think that the characters on this show are “normal” – big lol.
Oh well, enjoy your last season.

So we’re going to have fun again are we? Bring in some square jawed guest start heros as well? Sorry, the fan bus already left without you. Might be a good idea to turn the lights on as well.

As long as they don’t go TOO far in the light-hearted direction, I’m ok…. I want real world characters in real life situations faced with truly amazing circumstances. Throw in unpredictable alien encounters both celestial and living….. and then you have it.

I loved SGU’s first season and I loved SG-1 and SGA…. but I wanted a heavier tone, they delivered…. and I wouldn’t mind a little more humor, but keep it real.

I think that is just a marketing spin of Brad Wright to get SG1 and SGA fans back. From all the spoilers I read so far, it doesn’t sound like SGU change in any way. I expect more drama and soapy relationships.

Is this an indication that TPTB realise that the old formula was a lot more popular than the current one? Are they eating humble pie in an attempt to bring back some of the old fans? Too little too late IMHO. They bit the hands that fed them and are now going hungry as a result of that insult. Serves them right.

All I want is a show where I want to watch.

A show with characters I want to know.
A show with a story I want to follow.

SGU had MAYBE 3 episodes in the first season that met my modest needs.

T.V Producers have become like politicians – rather than teasing what we will see, they tease what they think we want to see. With SGU I’ve been spun around so many times I’m practically dizzy. Nevertheless I will give it a fair viewing.

: I agree with you completely (though I’ll allow for 4-5 episodes).

What?
Deep space 9 was not that Dark and it still had Star Trek Vibe and style going it was just slight poked at to a darker tone just the right amount. It was like having the borg wars happen for the whole series.

Stargate universe Is just fRicking insane off the wheel what the hell are they doing to stargate Dark and messed up, nothing is stargate anymore.

Even the editing and everything else is whacked and not stargate.
