I hate cliffhangers to begin with. Knowing that this one may never be resolved just makes it so much worse.

Everytime I see a new post by Darren I get a little worked up hoping that something amazing has happened and it’s been revived.. wishful thinking far too much!

I’ve decided not to watch it, I’m treating Epilogue as my finale.. I think SGU deserves that ending IMO.. If I watched it i’d be too depressed and angry!

What are you guys doing? watching or holding off?

For me, Stargate Universe should have been a show about taelons and Jaridians, Daleks, and Kree, Galactus, and Doomsday, the yellow Lantern corps with all their murderous intent, the alien from the western themed outer limit episode where the alien bestowed god like powers onto a bunch of killers to verify it’s race was safe from man because man would destroy itself. The Pandorica and End of Time mixed with a little bit of V-ger, and Q Continuum war, sprinkled with Pandorum and Event Horizon. Garnished with the Saga of the Seven Suns, The Dune trilogy and graciously baptized in… Read more »

I’m definitely watching. There is no way I couldn’t watch. Although I.ll be sad and no doubt frustrated when the credits roll, I still have to see the last episode. I would love it if Brad Wright releases something that finishes the story or failing that at least tell us where they were planning to go with it. Sigh…

If Brad released something to finalise it then i’d watch Gauntlet for sure :)

It’s sad to see SGU go and I think MGM and SyFy are beginning to see the err of their ways. Ratings are up, the show is much better than when it began, and people are coming around to SGU.

They’ve doomed Warehouse 13 and Sanctuary to Monday nights and left the marginally ok Colorado Kid based show on Friday. No more SyFy for me.

I’m hoping books will be written, preferably by the writers of the show, which finish off the story lines. Where they wanted to go with the advanced aliens that built a solar system, where they planned to go with the blue aliens, the Langarans, and the series finale they claimed to have in mind. I understand movies and webisodes take some doing and spending, but it’d be nice to have some books and I think that’s totally doable. I will definitely be watching Gauntlet tonight. I’m sad the show is coming to an end, but it’s just a tv show.… Read more »

Ratings are up? From the reports on Gateworld I thought they were about the same. As for Warehouse 13 and Sanctuary, its been renewed for a fourth season already so we don’t have to worry for the time being. Anytime you change a shows time slot you’ll initially get lower viewers, look at Fringe…I’m sure as more people find the new slot by next season the numbers will be back to normal. And as for Warehouse 13 and Eureka, both shows air during the summer months when there’s few new scripted series on, so with people looking for new shows… Read more »

I agree about drones being freaking annoying.They aren’t even intelligent like cylons,they’re just programmed machines and they turn out to be our great enemy.I love this show and I haven’t seen the finale,so I maybe wrong,but from what I have seen and heard the finale might be the worst part of this amazing season!We know Destiny’s mission,we know things about Ancients we haven’t known before and they choose to finish it with this?.,most definitely knowing that there was at least a strong possibillity of their show being canned!? That’s simply unbeliavable!Did they really expect this to hook us on for… Read more »

I’m depressed – have been all day and will probably be increasingly so up until 9 o’clock and i’m sure i won’t soon be cheerful again afterwards. I flipped on the SyFy marathon today but even with the quality of the episodes being so good it’s just furthering my displeasure that such a great series (and franchise) is being taken from us…

Back in 2005, it really felt crappy when “Enterprise” went off the air. Thankfully, at the time I had something else to get hooked on (SG-1/SGA back then).

Now it’s 2011, and after SGU goes off the air, i’ll have neither Trek or Gate to look forward to. :(

they have doomed all the good shows for what? junk i say. i will really miss SGU it was getting so good. why are they ending it on a cliff hanger if they dont plan to bring it back. and what are they doing about the conventions are they going to stop also, what about this sight is it going bye bye also. does anyone know the answer? i just want to say I LOVE SGU and all of them actually. MGM and SCIFI suck

Now when I first started watching Stargate Universe, I was a little dissappointed. First off, the new camera “style” and angles really threw me off, but I decided to keep watching. I almost left after a few episodes simply because the characters were not interesting and all they seemed to do was whine whine whine. However, as the season continued on and into season 2, I really got hooked. I loved the other two series, and now I especially am starting to love this series, and BAM! they want to take it away? So excited for the episode…but it’s bittersweet.… Read more »

Why is it that people are directing all the blame at syfy? IF THE SHOW WAS GOOD IT WOULD PULL GOOD NUMBERS. Make the writers accountable they had more than enough chances to change their plot, but no they wanted to get new viewers. Not to mention the bitter taste they left in fans mouths with their arrogant replies to things. Hold the right people accountable not the wrong ones.

Torchwood, it’ll be good if they just make slightly more cheery than Children of Earth, man that was bleak. Fringe will be back, so yeay there. Supernatural, nah, there’s a show that had a great opportunity to leave gracefully and didn’t. Walking Dead, almost forgot about that ! I mean to get into Sanctuary now, only seen bits and pieces.

And to quote Brad Wright BW: No. You guys are actually pretty predictable (take no offense, most fan groups are). Unfortunately, you represent a very small portion of the actual viewing audience we need for financial success.

It’s not a “real” spoiler, how could it be?.. but Molozzi said something about a final post “After” the Finale had ended. Reminded me {tongue in cheek} of Bowman’s last line in 2010 about .. “there may be a message.. After.. if all goes well” now don’t get your hopes up, its not an “undo” we don’t all wake up tomorrow and SGU was never cancelled.. it was.. but I think he plans to discuss what would have happened.. to tie up loose ends? Bring it to some sort of resolution in some peoples mind. Personally I think that would… Read more »

@Eagalis You said if the show was good it would pull good numbers. I have two problems with that comment. First of all, the show IS very good. Second, there are many horrible shows on tv right now that pull millions of viewers. Numbers doesn’t make the show good. Most americans are happy to watch shows like cupcake wars or jersey shore (mindless garbage if u ask me). Stargate fans want quality, intelligent sci fi, and thats what we’ve got for 17 seasons. Im really sad that the show got cancelled. I’m sure SG will be back someday. At least… Read more »

I recently decided to watch Atlantis through again, just finished that in time for the finale of SGU, i’m now annoyed about the fact that both are cancelled, I would have loved to see more of both of them it is SUCH a shame I’m really going to miss having a new SG series to watch :(

Well, at least the cliffhanger at the end opened it up. We need to pull together and do a farscape type campaign. Imagine if three years later, they arrive at the destination… That could be a mini series.

Well I just watched the last episode of SGU and was saddened the end came. I hope the people at SyFy get the message Pro-Wrestling has no room on a channel dedicated to science fiction and horror programming. I am confident the SyFy channel will observe fan opinions and look at the direction this channel is going. I also would like fans of the series and the franchise (Stargate) to voice their opinions and give positive and constructive feedback to these people at the SyFy channel or choose to elect another outlet for science fiction programming such as Stargate Universe… Read more »

I am sad to see Stargate, as a multi-series franchise, go. It is something I grew up watching with my father, who got me into Sci-fi, and something that has always reminded me of him. The season finale for SGU was simply amazing, I love how Eli seems to be coming into himself and am upset that we will not be able to see his triumphant success and well as the return of what might be the best, most dramatic Stargate series to date. The worst part is it got even better as the second season went on and the… Read more »

BRAVO!!! I feel this finale was the best possible ending for the series given the reality. In fact, it gives the series a 3 year window for a future return! We know the cast and producers have moved on, but who knows what will be possible in 3 years. I feel 100% satisfied with the way the crew came together in the end. I say, this finale has paved the way for a future return! Bravo!!!!! No looking back. Let’s look forward now. SGU cast & everyone involved, Bravo!! What a stunning performance!

I agree, alpsirus …. I believe it’s been the best Stargate EVER … it technically operates in real time with our reality, so in 3 years with the lifespan of modern television, we could see a great majority of the actors be yet again available for another spin-off, mini-series or feature film. In other sci-fi shows, we know stasis pods can fail over time … which would mean some cast may not eventually return. Eli could spend the 3 years and find another stasis pod section, or a holodeck to bide his time. He could use the stones and bring… Read more »

Well, they managed to write an ending that was satisfying in light of the almost impending at the time of writing cancellation with some hope for the future. But, in all honesty, I’m kind of glad the show’s done. I had fun but we were getting in to lame territory with the blinding and the ALS and it felt very cheap. As well, I have to point out… this plot was largely an episode of Voyager… again.

I am saddened that the series ended the way it did. Yes, there is a window for a return, however I am of the opinion the show was cancelled for professional wrestling. I am confident the network putting responsible for the Stargate Franchise will make the correct decision and keep the franchise alive and keep science fiction alive as a whole. Please, keep the dream alive, allow the imagination to work. Imagination is the driving force behind innovation.

I loved the “last” show…and the series. Eli is the man. Each show (SG1, SGA and SGU) had its own strengths + faults, and what serial program doesn’t? You can’t please all the people all the time. That being said, a big F-U to wrestle-rama and SciFi brass. Do people really watch that crap? Seriously…SciFi bumped a great “Sci-Friday” lineup for a bunch of roided-out meatheads that run around and grab each others crotch? You are the SciFi channel! I heard the WWE ratings are sucking anyway, so nice choice there pencil pushers. Until my show returns, I’ll be watching… Read more »

damn. epic. great episode. I wonder what the writers were planning for season three…

If you asked me two years ago would I ever get choked up over the cancellation of a Stargate t.v. series I would have said, “what the eff is Stargate, and why are you taking to me?”
I really, really enjoyed every aspect of this series. boosh.

such a bittersweet ending. the show, at the very least, went out on a high-note.

I find it odd that they air this show in the US first and then Canada considering they filmed SGA in Vancouver? I could be wrong? SPACE channel should pick up this show…this finale episode was very anti-climactic and open for a third season…

Screw SyFy for destroying Stargate and airing its pathetic filth fake wrestling shows! Syfy go cancel yourself.

Maybe we need to start a Stargate Universe fan club and have a following like the Doctor who series.We need to keep this show alive and force the franchise of the the series to finish it the right way,not just end it abruptly because they just don’t want to pay for it.I was looking forward to the way I thought the series was going to end.Perhaps the writers and their little minds could not comprehend what the builders were looking for when they built the ship,and the way the ship recorded memory those two that had died.So many un-answered questions,don’t… Read more »

And the open option of what may come isn’t just three years ahead,in the series timeline,it could be a thousand years into future and so many open wonderous possibilities are there once they wake up.Suspended… Read more »
