    This is one of my favorite SG-U episodes and shows the quality of the writing, acting, and production of SG-U as a whole. Here's why:

    1. The intro is awesome and longer than usual.
    2. Many people wouldn't have noticed the whole beginning and most of the episode is Kino footage.
    3. The design, production, and cinematography of the Kino footage is awesome.
    4. This is like a found footage movie, Twilight Zone episode, Stargate episode all rolled into one.
    5. The time travel was done well.
    6. The human remains used as a value added bonus mystery is really great.
    7. The scary, tense, and "woah" situations allowed the actors to show their craft skills.


    However, the abrupt ending was a little too abrupt and SyFy should have extended the episode by like 1 minute to show a 3rd timeline of receiving a Kino through the Stargate and the team just skipping that planet.

    Also, on a site note, I think SyFy should have aired episodes 1-6 before in 3 hour blocks, 2 days in a row and then repeated them all week long in 1 hour blocks here and there.

    I agree probably the best episode, especially of season 1. I like how the characters we follow throughout most of the episode turn out to be also another timeline. This episode has a lot of emotional parts as well.

    I kind of like the ending how it just ends with Scott throwing the Keno, a kind of endless ending that could have been in a Twilight Zone episode.

    Yes this was definitely one of the best first season episodes even if it was a little predictable.

    If you look back in the previous page you'd realize the wasn't really much of a discussion. I was replying Puddle Jumper. However, the posts before it are months old at least. Sad that this board isn't very active anymore.

    Maybe a bit predictable but I still love the episode.

    It's not you, like blueray said look at the dates on the posts - sometimes months go by and then someone comments and then more months go by.

    A bit like life on Destiny I guess, months go by, nothing happens and then something, then back again to nothing much!

    As time goes on people move on and SGU disappears with all the other great cancelled shows in the mists of fading memory. However, here we are on GW helping to delay this, it's nice to see that new people still come to comment on things time to time.

    I've re-started my detailed look at each episode on my site, and my new post is about "Time". I may have gone overboard with almost 3,000 words, but I figure you guys would be the right people who might enjoy it.

    Thanks! I'm not sure when I'll be finishing it, but I do plan to post more regularly now. Hoping to do a new article every few weeks, mostly on individual episodes. I will combine some when the episodes go together well like "Darkness: and "Light".

    Thanks for posting this. It is interesting to think about how time was a different pace then the previous episodes. I can't wait until you get into season 2, when the show really picks up.

    Thanks for sharing. Time is one of my favourite episodes of Stargate, not just Stargate Universe. I love watching this episode. I was kind of disappointed they didn't stick with the handheld style continually (I have a huge softspot for found footage films) but I thought it all worked really well together.

    While i am the opposite, i have been more 'dislike' than like for "Found footage films".

    Using
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catego..._footage_films
    and going through all the 'found footage films they have, the ones on my like list are;

    Chronicle,
    Cloverfield (more was ok with it)
    Earth to echo
    Into the storm

    That's it. The rest are crappy horror films, in the blair witch style which i have never liked..

    They're generally terrible, I completely agree. But I just have a soft spot for the style. They're amongst my guilty pleasure films. It was nice to see that style make its way across to Stargate and be amazing!

    I really didn't know what all the fuss was about with the 'Blair Witch' at the time! To me it was like they let a toddler run off with the camera!

    I did like 'Cloverfield' though. That was the best use of this 'handheld' shooting style for me. It worked in 'Time' since it was Eli and his need to chronicle stuff with the kinos that made it a more personal viewpoint of what unfolded. That's why I like this episode, the camera is impersonal but it's Eli's reactions that give the images their emotional impact.

    sci-fi fanatic....Really enjoying your 'Reconsideration of SGU'! Reminds me once again of what made this show so enjoyable for me! I too look forward to reading your impressions of each episode!

    Thanks! I just wrote about "Life" and posted it today. I'll drop that one in the Life thread shortly.
