Ok, so we all know SGU was intended to be a little more mature compared to SG1 and SGA with more adult themes, but did you feel like they were trying a little too hard at the beginning? I mean in the pilot episode, as soon as the Gate on Destiny establishes an incoming wormhole with our guests on the way, everybody is thrown into the room way too rough and causes a small panic, and then Lt. Scott just starts screaming Rush's name out of nowhere, with Wray grabbing him and screaming to his face what's going. Later we see in the flashback scenes how Young, after a brief discussion with his wife, suddenly collapses... which isn't addressed again in the series as far as I'm aware. Oh and let's not forget the infamous closet scene with Lt. Hooters and Matt.
It feels to me like they were throwing these things at our face to make sure we understand it's not the Stargate we're familiar with, but I think they should've been more subtle. Basically it's like we were introduced to characters with a stick up their ass. Don't get me wrong, I love SGU, especially the second season, but that's just my two cents.
