is it time to smash the sets already? just like old times, right?

Haven’t the auctions already begun? Kinos and stuff? Instead of a “cliffhanger” I think an “alternate ending” would be a wise option. Just one more ship parked in San Francisco Bay.

Im surprised that there is even a Kino up for auction. Other than maybe to help conceptualize the item I thought those were purely CG.

I’m rather surprised that SyFy will make a call as to renew the show or not with it only having been in its new time slot for 10 episodes, then again I guess there is nothing that would stop them from reversing their decission down the road if the back half of the season turns out really good or really bad ratings.

there is one kino and one remote up for auction. Chances are they are just the plastic mock ups for use in scenes to look pretty. And it is for Charity! It isn’t like they are auctioning off the whole sets. It is a couple of props. You know how many zats they had? DOZENS! I’m sure they have plenty of kinos and kino remotes.

You know it always amazes me how much bile people sling at this show. What people fail to realize is that if this show is canceled there isn’t another one. Here are no direct movies being filmed. This quite possibly could be the last stargate show, at least for the forseeable future. Shouldn’t we enjoy what we got and forget about what could have been because, it ain’t coming back. If we support we get more. If we reject we won’t get anything.

I’ve been incredibly enjoying Season 2 and from the sounds of things its only going to get bigger and better and that the cliffhanger is going to be massive! Season 3 NEEDS to be commissioned! I’m desperate to see the cliffhanger…and Destiny’s mission…continued!

SGU’s story needs to go on and be told!

Oh man, Resurgence is gonna be epic. They’re drawn into a war between two races. If the space battles are anything like SG-1’s Camelot or SGA’s Be All My Sins Remember’d, they’ll make the wait till next year’s episodes that much more difficult.

And now we await the agonising amount of time it takes SyFy to announce a season renewal or cancellation.

WE WANT SEASON 3!!!!

My guess is they will renew it with a reduced episode count.

@talyn00 OMG, I absolutely hate it when people make statements like you did here: “Shouldn’t we enjoy what we got and forget about what could have been because, it ain’t coming back. If we support we get more. If we reject we won’t get anything.” THAT IS FALSE. The producers of this show (Brad Wright, Joseph Mallozzi, et al) are not the owners of the Stargate license. That belongs to MGM studios, and can be sold or re-used at any time. Furthermore, none of these writers or producers has a say in what gets done or what doesnt get done.… Read more »

I’m calling it right now..they are going to renew the show with a full third season order! Everything points to it..they’re building new sets,preparing for the crew to explore it,ending a season with a cliffhanger.I really don’t think they’d be doing it without some inside information that we still do not have. Plus they’ve already canceled Caprica..if the execs on Sy-Fy have any shrowd of reason left they’ll give it another season.One thing..I thing it’s gonna pay in the long run,although they haven’t been thinking long therm over there for quite a while,and the other thing..if they cancel it,what the… Read more »

Yeah, there’s going to be a full season 3. I’m not worried. All the negative posts about cancellation have been so annoying. This is the last Stargate series we are going to see. I have faith that the franchise will go out with an amazing 5 seasons of SGU, just as planned. It’s only getting better with each episode.

Jim

Yep Xyla..it probably is the last SG series we’re going to see,although I hope it’s not(that’s a fool’s hope)..so it would be said if it ended like this,on a cliffhanger!Especially because that would probably be it for the whole story,since a straight to dvd movie market is dead and a feature production is not an option for the Stargate.So,yes the more I think about it,the more certain I am we’re gonna get a third season and after that one,things will probably get on track with next seasons..mind you,their plan was initially for five seasons,minimum!!I just do not believe they would… Read more »

The renewal news always comes before christmas, becaude filming would have to begin in february, and something tells me it will get renewed. Would Syfy allow them to build a whole new set for the last four episodes, just to cancel the show and rip it down a few months later? It doesn’t sound logical.

@Overmind One: SGU is not in any way, at any time, a soap opera. It never has been. I get tired of repeating this but as long as it is ignored I will continue to do so: Casual viewers make the ratings. Casual viewers. Not fans, not anti-fans. We’re talking channel surfers. The people that watch. They don’t troll, they don’t spam, they don’t read spoilers, they don’t make things up on imdb, they just watch. All the anti-fan rhetoric, & actual fan responses, will not make or break a show. Also, let’s not forget. Atlantis was canceled because the… Read more »

Well,they said the news will come in either December,or January and then,depending on that,the filming would start in March probably if the news is positive..but yes..it wouldn’t be logical at all,especially considering they were saying how big and awesome,so presumably also expensive those new sets were. Now that I see people thinking the same thing I’m even more sure..it’s not just me. Whatever this show has been,the fact is that it’s improving and once it gets renewed I’m sure things will finally set in place right. I mean,from beginning I was open to this new concept,then became dissapointed somwhere along… Read more »

@Gaeth you said: “@Overmind One: SGU is not in any way, at any time, a soap opera. It never has been. I get tired of repeating this but as long as it is ignored I will continue to do so” Repeat your incorrect interpretations all you wish. The definition of “soap opera” as well as the definition of “science fiction” can easily be found online.

One thing i wish everyone would remember is that there are online viewers who because they may not get syfy channel. I think making Hulu wait 30 days to put up episodes was a stupid desicion. And by not putting them up the next day you force the viewers who would watch on hulu to downoad or find another website to watch it on.

@Overmind One You are right that the writers, and these people don’t own the Stargate Franchise, however MGM will not pay for a show, or any Direct to DVD Movies without knowing they will make some money in the end. If this show keeps getting lower ratings, that really could spell the end for Stargate Universe, and the STARGATE Franchise. You are right with your anything can happen attitude, for all I know they could bring SGA back tomorrow, but they won’t. It just didn’t do well enough, and I think people are right we have been watching the same… Read more »

We need a third season. The main reason we need one, is to get Christopher Judge to make a cameo appearance on the show!

The rest of the pre-season 8 SG-1 cast have appeared (Amanda Tapping, Richard Dean Anderson and Michael Shanks) so it’s only fair that Christopher Judge gets to pop-up in it somehow!

BRING BACK TEAL’C!!!

@lmaceleighton Great comments. But there is a problem…you said: “I think that If people would show more support for this show, and show some constructive criticism, as to what they like, and don’t like in a positive manner, we might be able to effect some change that we all like.” I AGREE! But where is one going to do that? Currently, the forums on this very site do NOT allow constructive criticism of this show, or much criticism of the show at all (constructive or not). The only place where there is open discussion about his show without censorship is… Read more »

@Overmind One The definitions aren’t really important here,because you can obviously interprete them the way it suits you POV. But even if you look at your definition of science fiction(I’ve heard of better ones)..dealing with the impact of whatever on society or individuals automatically involves the elements of DRAMA!The point being,things are not black and white..this is drama and therefore is bad,this has serialized format..therefore is a soap opera and bad… Science Fiction does not mean action,by the definition you,yourself pulled..it doesn’t need to have any action in it to be sci-fi and every real sci-fi fan knows that.

@Jim Good points. However I must take exception to this part of your post: “And the general viewership nowdays preferred more serialized shows,with longer story arcs.” NO. If that were true (and TPTB for SGU thought it was), then the shows which followed that format would be thriving. For the “mainstream” (drama) audiences, the serialized format and longer story arcs work very well. Shows like NCIS, Lost, BSG. But not with science fiction audiences. The action/adventure/drama model is still the ticket, and it explains why the next BSG show will follow that format instead of the failed “soap-fi” model used… Read more »

Sorry, but SGU definitely qualifies as a soap opera. I’m not saying whether it’s good or bad here, but words do have definitions and there are authoritative sources for those definitions and the merriam-webster dictionary would be considered an authoritative source for definitions for english words. And for those whom say that supporting SGU is the way to get more Stargate…that’s really nothing more than a sweeping assumption. The idea that because there is nothing else right now that staying the course is the best option holds little merit. The bottom line is that the ratings of this show prove… Read more »

You hit the nail on the head! I agree with all of your opinions! I watch SGU in Canada only for the fact that i’ve seen every episode created. I think that it would be good if SGU ends also we might get a better show then and possibly the two movies, Stargate Revolution and Stargate Extinction.

@Overmind One You misunderstand me,When I said growing pains,I meant growing up of SGU regarding last few episodes,I didn’t mean,nor did I mention show being grown up thus far,comparred to the rest of the franchise. Secondly,theoretically speaking ratings have never been a very good indicator of the quality,because in that case Dancing With Stars and reallity shows would be synonims of quality and sci-fi has never been mainstream. And thirdly I may have used the wrong term,when I said sabotage,but I think it was very clear what I meant,so called real fans and I call them that just because,what’s a… Read more »

@ Eagalis – That’s why they’re guaranteed a SGU five season run – more new viewers! Maybe the current ratings can be blamed on those pesky Vlocks.

@mythos I’m sorry,but I find the fact that you watch SGU,because it has no effect very funny! What is that suppose to mean,that you force yourself to watch it?Just because your DVR records it,doesn’t mean you have to watch it..otherwise I share your opinion on producers having to improve some things,since the potential is there and it’s enormous,it only stays unutillized,which is a shame.Yes they should listen to the fans and do something about it,but I don’t think they should go..that’s a very ungrateful thing to say,as if you were just waiting for a reason to crusify them!

@Jim – I’m not saying that I watch just because I have no affect on the ratings. What I’m saying is that I wouldn’t watch it if I did. I don’t find it good enough up to the present to want it to keep going. So if my watching mattered, I would probably opt to not watch. I obviously don’t feel forced to watch it but there’s not a lot on that I do watch and it is Stargate so when time permits, I do watch it. And I disagree about the franchise’s future. After the dust settles, whomever owns… Read more »
