What’s the point in tuning in for any of the last episodes now? The show is dead, the franchise is dead.

Name one good reason to continue watching the show, knowing it will end on a cliffhanger, with no possibility for continuation?

If you realy are a SG fan, you take what you get.

Because watching it entertains me. The franchise will be dead for a while, but what is the sense in depriving yourself of watching the last hours of stargate in a very long time? Unless you don’t like the show of course, then it’s understandable. But if you’re a regular viewer/fan and you think there is no point to watching the last eps because there is no continuation, then you’re simply sliding this lack of continuation a bit further back. If you stop watching right now your SGU experience will have no continuation after ep 16. If you simply watch everything,… Read more »

: Yes I am a Stargate fan, and I am a Star Trek fan. But to me, at this point… watching SGU’s last remaining episodes without any hope for a continuation, is like reading a book that has no ending, and to which the author is dead.

You get all excited and anxious to read/see how it all turns out, only to end on a “To be continued…”

I think that in your case you can watch common descent and epilogue, but just not watch the season finale ;)

I’m simply gonna watch it all, because I love the show. I wouldn’t wanna miss a minute of it, even if it ends with “to be continued”.

I’m guessing in Twin Destinies when they dialed the gate back to earth, everyone who rush believed to be dead when they went through the gate, a solar flare sent them through back in time to the destiny 2,000 years ago.

@ DRAYUNIVERSE: I wanna say you’re correct/wrong, but I’m not sure wether I should spoil it..

This is one of the best episodes thus far and cannot wait until the next episode… I hope they atleast release a movie to tie up the series.

By far the best episode to date. The storyline for this was just incredible.

Call me a Doctor Who wannabe, but Humans! Bloody Humans!!
I thought it was fantastic that in the sg universe, humans lived amongst at least 3 galaxies (milky way, pegasus, alteran home galaxy) Now out in the middle of nowhere, through a freak accident of time travel, another civilisation of them, possibly more advanced than the tau’ri. I wonder if they’ve met the blue aliens or the ursini. Blue aliens their goa’uld, ursini (with their self-sacrificial tendancies) their Asgard.

One thing I was curious about… surely there wasn’t enough genetic diversity on destiny.

I think this is one of best episodes of stargate ever. This show is so awesome, personally I think its better than SG-1 and SGA. Wonder if anyone is still alive down there. I’d love to see how Rush reacts when he finds out there is an entire nations devoted to him.

What a ridiculous comment the first poster in this list makes. First, because one series is cancelled hardly makes the franchise dead. Worse. because a series is cancelled, especially one with the promise of SGU, doesn’t make the remaining episodes worthless to watch nor does it even say that there won’t be some follow up to the series itself – even if that doesn’t look forthcoming in the immediate future. I’d hate to see how that person views other bumps in life. Re SGU, I’ve been upset about other cancelled series in the past, but SGU is a special case.… Read more »

It’s rather a shame the show ends in three episodes, the writing seems to have gotten a fair bit more relaxed. It was very refreshing to see the light humor that I remember SG-1 for. I had to chuckle to myself in regards to the line about Rush being viewed as a demon by the decendants, I imagined a mother telling her little kids to eat their veggies at the dinner table otherwise “The Rush” will get them. In regards to the franchise, I think its actually a good thing it is being put on the shelf for a few… Read more »

Hasnt anyone noticed that this type of an episode has popped up far too often… Star Trek DS9 Defiant crew… then Enterprise their crew …. and now Destiny… the people have kids and meet their great X100 kids…. Oh Yip Yip…….

Who cares? personally i’m not even a scifi fan except for stargate so I wouldnt know. Why care if they did stuff like this in other shows?? The story is good, thats all that matters

Great episode, I give it a 10/10! Only confused on how the gate got hit. In SG-1 the gate got hit with a meteore, nukelear explosion, blackhole, and several other stuff, but the gate was still intact. I’m just guessing because the gates that SGU uses is much older and aren’t sturdy and built the same than the gates from the previous series so thats why it was destroyed

These episodes keep getting more enjoyable…too bad it’s almost over. I am looking forward to seeing what happens after “Common Descent”… and whether others think this is a device used by other shows or not, if it works to keep the audience coming back to see what will happen next, then it doesn’t matter! Is there anyone left on Novis at all? Are they going to have to stay on the Destiny and what will they breathe if the air is toxic? How will it all get wrapped up in a few episodes? It’s not the novelty of the plot… Read more »

I heard the show was cancelled due to non profitability due to the rise in Canadian dollar relative to US dollar. In addition to that, to worsen the situation around the economic crisis, they had bad rating during the second half of the first season. I hope they announce a rebirth, but i doubt that since it is best to end as a good series. Anyway, if they do it good on the next episodes, we may see a couple of good tv/dvd movies in the next couple of years, that should be profitable for the studio. About genetic diversity,… Read more »
