Thanks Darren for mentioning our “Sidewalks Entertainment” interview. As a Stargate fans myself, I’m glad the other fans can watch it. Great job on the article write-up. I will let you know when I have our Joe Flanagan interview ready. — Richard

So the time wasn’t right to go to streaming back then. I bet it would be now. I’m certain I speak for a large swath of the fan base that wants Stargate back!

I liked it from the start, and was stunned to see the vehement reaction from a fan base from which I would’ve expected more open minds, but instead a large portion proved themselves a rabid cult of irrational anger, esp as evidenced by their treatment of an actress who didn’t control a god damned thing about it. 😟 Still wish we could at least get a couple movies to complete the cliffhanger.

Personally I enjoyed SGU right from the start and was disappointed when it ended. I watched every episode more than once and kept hoping for its return. It was different than the other SG series but still had me at home in time for the new episode every week. With any luck a SGU movie could bring it back or provide closure to the series.

Wow. Hard to believe fans were being assholez like that. I admit it took me a few episodes warm up. Either way it was a terrific show. I hope we can get a couple movies or more. Still sorry to hear of alainas bad experience

The show seemed to be more of a Soap Opera to me. Military discipline thrown out the window.

That is to bad for the actors/actresses who tried to bring us another great stargate series., to have to go through what they did… I believe and it’s an opinion, that individuals who gave such a negative reaction were not true fans. I loved it, how they involved stargate command and Richard dean Anderson. All of it was great… very sorry that it was cancelled. I am just wrapping up Atlantis moving on to SGU. I would really love it if they would consider returning to continue the series. Have watched all stargate movies and series multiple times.. Never gets… Read more »

I loved SGU from the start, and although I was disappointed when it ended, I thought the last show was one of the best series finales ever

At the time SGU came out I had already started growing skeptical of the Sci-Fi Channel and was a little worn out on the Franchise (SG:Atlantis was OK but never really gelled with me). Nonetheless, I gave SGU a chance and was quickly taken by the quality and different tone of the show. It became and remains my favorite of the franchise – i rewatch both season regularly perhaps about 2 or 3 times a year. I was appalled at the character of the negative reaction this show got from a certain segment of the fan base when it was… Read more »

SGU was definitely a different stargate show. It had a darker spin on things, but had a lot of potential for stories. It was cut too soon…should be revived.

SGU took the Stargate franchise in an exciting new direction; I hated the infantile backlash from some fans at the time, though it’s nice a few have come ’round to realize the franchise was headed in the right direction. The cast was stellar and producers were smart to sprinkle some Stargate veterans in cameos and story arcs throughout the 2-season run (but Daniel and Teac got a bit of a short shrift IMHO). It was clear that SyFy execs weren’t supporting quality science fiction in favor of ghost shows and wrestling; colossal mistake, as I never watched anything on SyFy… Read more »

You spit on somebody just because they are an actress in a TV show? You need extra-strength professional help.

i think Universe was amazing….and it was exactly the right kind of Stargate for me. when i first fell in love with Stargate it was the movie and while SG-1 and Atlantis were good, there was something “missing”…it was that deep rooted exploration, the discovery of the unknown that i saw in the movie that drew me in to SGU. it wasnt about what bad guy they can blow up this week, or what general or authority figure they could cheese off, wasnt about the latest “new discovery” episode…SGU was the most realistic of the series, in fact, it could… Read more »

Alaina was perfect, but SGU is very grim and full of psychopaths so no wonder it attracted alike.

For me, i did not like the SGU show and still don’t, i was never able to get past the first season. It is not only a bad Stargate show but it is a bad TV series in general.
However, I REALLY LIKED THE CAST. I think they did a fantastic job and i think they would have had a huge success if put in the right context.

@Samiup, do you mind explaining why you think it was “bad Stargate” and “bad TV”?

Was it because the characters were always in deep trouble, barely winning by enormous effort and commitment?

Was it because the stress on the characters illuminated their choices and the price they paid to overcome obstacles?

Was it because of the abundance of complex characters with believable flaws, things they could not and did not overcome in 44 minutes?

Just wondering.

I didn’t realize so many people didn’t like Stargate Universe, and that there was such hateful fans. I mean, who spits on someone in this day and age? Seriously, wtf?! I enjoyed the series though. It was different, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It had a great cast and characters too.

I can’t believe it’s been 10 years since it ended! I feel like I was just watching it air yesterday.

MGM made a big mistake when they disided to cancel SGU fans are still talking about it even now. Very few shows have fans talking them after this lenght of time. That should mean something. (hint)! theres a strong fan base. Bring it back. Think Star Ship.

Idk what anyone was talking about. It had to be the best Stargate show ever produced albeit 2 seasons. I watched them repeatedly over the years from start to finish at least 30 to 40 times. I would still love to see them come out of the cryo-chambers.
