Just need to air it on a channel that isn’t named “SyFy”, and i’ll watch.

Not gonna follow anything SyFy has to offer from now on, other than Eureka. After that inevitably get’s cancelled by the SyFy execs, i’m done with SyFy for good.

But… Mike Dopud in a lead role series, does sound interesting. I’ve enjoyed every appearance he’s made in Stargate (SG1, SGA and now SGU).

*Crosses fingers, hoping that BBC America funds it*

Lets face facts. SyFy doesn’t give a sh*t about sci-fi. However, BBC have been doing succesful sci-fi for years (Doctor Who). Come on BBC!!! Make the americans proud, like you have done with the British all these years!

Hey! I object to the statement that Australia is little fish trapped between the superpowers!!!

However, this does sound like a very cool concept :) and I hope they fire Brian K Smith because he’s a great actor. He was one of the standouts for me in SGU.

This looks pretty good. Jennifer Spence ( park ) stood out for me amongst the crowd of secondary characters in SGU. I’ll have to keep an eye out for this.

Interesting concept as well. SGU handled aliens and different civlisations very well. I’m curious to see how ‘Echoes’ would do it.

I love this idea even if SyFy picks it up I will watch it but I would rather BBC America or someone else.

its Brian J Smith not Brian K Smith

I’m in the same boat as many others. Other than anything Battlestar or Stargate related, the last shows I watch on SyFy are Eureka, Warehouse 13 and Sanctuary.

Concept sounds interesting. Reminds me of a real-time strategy game that came out a couple years back, can’t remember the name, but it had the same story where humans were pitted in between two warring alien races. It was made by Petroglyph I think. I think this would do well on a network like TNT or AMC (airing as a lead-in/lead-out to The Walking Dead).

As an Australian I find that offensive

Sounds like Starcraft instead of it being set on earth. Terrans somehow got in between the war with Protoss and Zergs and blah blah blah :D

I’ll keep an eye out for “Echoes”. I hope it airs on a network other than SyFy.

If it is indeed supposed to be set in Australia, then the cars in the pics are all wrong. The drivers seat is on the wrong side (should be right not left side)

I’m rather excited about this. Sadened that it is likely destined for SyFy who won’t give it a fair chance… and will cancel it just as it gets REALLY interesting.

This sounds interesting and I love the enthusiasm the creators are approaching it with. Don’t think anyone needs to worry it’ll be picked up by SyFy.It’s too SF for them.TNT has Spielberg’s $4 mill. per episode Falling Skies coming up,so I now they won’t be interested. But BBC,AMC,Starz…could happen.I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for this one. I don’t know why Australians find themselves so offended by that example,if USA and China would decide to fight it out in Australia,what else could they be but collateral damage?Besides we all know that the collaterals in the middle will win in… Read more »

Maybe TNT will pick it up and pair it with Spielbergs “Falling Skies” alien invasion series – assuming it gets more than its first 10 episodes.

I agree with the anti SyFy sentiment. SyFy will probably change its name again to something like IMAGINE (playing off its Imagine Greater motto). Though I cant “imagine” I will watch any new series on SYFY again. Though Stargate suffered from some self inflicted wounds of late SyFy did what it could to help exterminate the last vestiges of the franchise.

Hrm, could be good – depends though, the alien designs in these things leave a lot to be desired and usually use overdone tropes (reptillians, insectoids, arachnids, humanoids ect) – if they can make some INTERESTING looking aliens for once and pair that with solid-story telling – then ill definitly watch.

I agree with others on it NOT being on syfy though. It would only last a season and get cancelled.

Wow, best idea for a new show I’ve heard in a long while. Although to be frank, at this stage, I’d be happy to have any new actual sci-fi show, without horrid phrases like “supernatural abilities”, “vampires”, “ghosts” or “reality TV” being mentioned.

I do particularly like the premise for the show though, aliens v. aliens rather than the usual aliens v. humans, sounds creative. What I think I always most loved about Stargate was the massive “background universe” developed throughout the series. This show sounds like it might have the opportunity to do the same.
