SGU review & SGA back
General StargateOk folks, I promised I'd reserve judgement on Stargate Universe the new series until I'd seen it for more than a few eps.

Well I've trolled through more than half of the season, trying to dllingently pay attention and some of the beginning eps were ok. However. Its a disappointing addition to the franchise in several ways.

Firstly.

You have an awesome actor in the shoes of Mr Robert Carlyle - playing Dr Rush. He is internationally known and a real coup for the franchise... However...He is under utilised and over promised as a character. It's such a shame.

Secondly,

I'm all for relationships and coups - after all they are giving the fans the shipping without the angst and the political wrangling that would occur in an abandonment environment. Life's too short and all that. But if you're going to do it - DO IT. There's soo much jumping around and quick anecdotes.

Thirdly,

I know it has to be different to give it an edge but really? Seriously... Do you have to make it so dull? No humour, certainly no gallows humour that would absolutely happen in a dire situation and in ANY CASE at least they can go home! I really miss the humour that was in the other two series.

FOURTHLY -

Com'n. Take advantage of the brilliant young actors who clearly want to make their mark. Get new writing blood in that are fans of the franchise. SGU is not battlestar, its not 24, its not LOST (though I would question that right now!). It's STARGATE.

That's my rant to say and my personal opinion. I like the stones to go back and forth as I said, but please, use them brilliantly. I like the new aliens. More please...

On to Stargate Atlantis!

Oh yes... they are doing a DVD movie.

Stargate: Extinction - all the cast are returning (they'd be mad not to) and its not got a release date currently. So all eyes on that!

Gallows humor. Kind of reminds me of an old joke from Viet Nam. People would warn you of the dire consequences of doing something and your response would be" So what are they going to do, send me to Viet Nam? " The worse that things got, the more you would make a joke out of it. Groaning from a bad joke sure beats laying catatonic in the fetal position while the bad guys sneak up on you.
There are many things that I like about this show but the displays of military cohesion are not one of them. When the guy (or gal) standing next to you is all that you've got, you don't have all that back biting and infighting. Plus, isn't it time to fully explore that ship? Think of how silly they will feel when most of them are starved to death and then they find the hydroponic garden.
