as for the episode, i thought it was okay. i don't really like the storyline with chloe so i hope that its over with, at the same time it was kind of like "okay quick fix" just like sgu had always been doing.
Could it be also that not everyone has had a chance to see the ep yet, it hasn't aired yet in the UK or in some parts of Europe, right?
The episode was boring as hell. The cast did an excellent job trying to make the show watchable, but the writing was terrible. Drone ships just don't equal exciting. And like someone earlier posted the way they solved the problem in 10 minutes with Young shouting at them no less, was too easy.
If you liked the episode great. I'm not knocking all you for liking it. You seem to be trolling me like crazy because I didn't like it. Attacking me because I watch wrestling? Get some new troll material. I also like stargate. Oh man what next trolls?
If it had taken longer than 10 minutes, then I bet someone would've come here and complained that it dragged and so much time was wasted on it.
Not that it's anything wrong with having a different opinion. It's just that I'm 110% certain no matter how writers approach situations, there will be people who dislike it.
I think there are three things that contribute to the lack of threads:
1) It has been three months since SGU was last on. I don't know about anyone else, but I almost completely forgot about it. If it had not been for a ad during another SciFi show OnDemand I might have not even realized it had started up agian.
2) It went from Tuesday to Monday, and I did not even know that until the above mentioned ad. So it is entirely possible that people forgot about it or did not know when it was coming on.
3) Its been canceled. I will admit, the fact that it has been canceled has sucked some of my desire to even watch it. Of course the fact that SyFy is treating it like it is some big event has me annoyed.
They keep changing the frakin'(sorry) nights up on me! I knew that it was starting back up this week, but last night(Tuesday night) I turned to SyFy a little before 8:00 CST getting ready to watch the mid season premiere of Stargate Universe, and I was all excited about it, and they were showing some frakin'(sorry) movie! I came to this forum last night to discover that it was shown the night before! I was so pissed-I feel kind of bad because I was so pissed that I think that I put some of it out on my wife, but I never told her why I was upset. I just feel like SyFy is purposely screwing up this show!
Spoiler'd for size:
____I reserve the right to be completely wrong about any topic I post on.
I wish they would use the stargate more. Maybe to at least drop people (who were unnecessary to the ship's survival) off on an unpopulated planet as a temporary Alpha site in case the final battle didn't go well? IDK. And the Blue aliens... they just aren't intriguing to me. I thought we left them behind- and here they show up, act threatening, then just leave us alone (at least for the time being)? I think they need a face, or some kind of background, or SOMETHING to make them a little more interesting.Another episode with no stargate use. Another episode with lame blue aliens. I know why they brought them back was to clean up all the subplots before the series ends. They left those aliens in another galaxy. Whats next? Another episode to clean up the faith planet aliens subplot? Is it neccessary?
Yeah, it would be nice, wouldn't it? But as others above me have said, these next 9 episodes were shot several months back.Just get to main plot already. We only have 9 episodes left. Focus on the big picture and leave the old subplots alone. Lets see this background source stuff and get some resolution to this story.
Don't know if I agree with this one- the replicators were pretty good, scary (in the sense that they were an unrelenting wave that just kept coming and coming) enemies without any human-forms leading them.Also the villians we're drone ships controlled by a command ship. How exciting. Lets get a real villian. Who made the command ship? Lets have those aliens show up! Have them be led by some crazy megalomanic leader who gets some good lines.
In SGU we had Aphopis and then Baal... and then in Atlantis we had Michael and Todd. Just great characters that created some exciting tension with our heroes.
I also wish they had let the Lucian alliance threat stay there- maybe in power for a few episodes.This show they give us blue aliens who can't talk and drones. The Lucian alliance villians attack was probably the first exciting villian characters yet and that was resolved too fast.
I don't think they need an actual villian at the moment- maybe more of just a natural situation that they have to constantly fight against- i.e. the ship falling apart.I still like the show, but wish they would go with what works. Shows like these need a good villian type. Rush doesn't have much left in the tank to be a villian, so an outside threat needs to show up.
Proud supporter of His holy BAGness!
The fact many Stargate fans arent even on GW and the small number that are, are starting to loose interest?
And i also like WWE raw..
