    Default Thank you, Stargate Universe

    With everything that's happened, I wanted a place to offer my heartfelt thanks for a show that I thoroughly enjoyed, for every episode it's been on.

    Stargate Universe is the first show where I've had the unique opportunity to thank the people responsible for entertaining me, where there was a chance that the people involved could see my letter, without having to go through an agent or a mailbag, etc. (Thank you, Interwebs!)

    From moment one, I've watched every episode, mostly from the edge of my seat and this has been some of the best TV I've seen in a long time.

    I wanted to say how much I've appreciated not only the entertainment, but for all the extra goodies. From the stunning visuals, to the Kinos and set tours, to back stage extras that let us see what's going on. I also loved that with this show, like none other that I've been a fan of, there has been a sense of connection with The Powers That Be, whether that's at GateWorld, on Twitter and Facebook, various campaigns, or Joe Mallozzi's blog.

    This show made me think of bigger things and brought a true sense of wonder, not only for the message but for the simple journey itself. Even if it's only two seasons, I'm cherishing those discs.

    Thank you, sincerely,

    Elaine G

    I'm going to second that.

    SGU stands as being one of the greatest Sci Fi shows I have ever seen. It's quality on every level.

    Good going TPTB, for making the brave decision to not just settling for repeating yourself for years to come.

    Very well said Elaine. Thank you to the cast and crew for a complex group of characters and an intriguing plot. The show kept me interested all the way from the beginning. I'll be watching the show all the way to "Gauntlet" and hopefully there will be some kind of resolution to the story in the future.

    Indeed. Thanks to everyone involved with SGU for making it daring to strike in a direction that was distinctly different from what came before. With its arc-based writing, it was following in the footsteps of Babylon 5 and Deep Space 9, my all-time favorite sci-fi shows.

    I completely agree! Thank you for the best two seasons of Stargate yet (in my opinion), and some of the best seasons of sci-fi ever

    Completely agree with everyone in this thread. Especially cherishing the discs. 1.0 and 1.5 are my favorite DVDs ever - I've watched them more than anything I have.

    Last night I watched "Darkness" on one of my local channels that has SGU in syndication.
    I was reminded again what a fantastic show this is- and last night I didn'tyet know SGU had been cancelled.(Or I would have been shedding a tear)
    I second and third every thing that's been said above-great Sci-fi, great everything.
    I will sorely miss SGU

    Great post & I agree with everything you said. I would've never watched anything "Stargate" without SGU. I thank them for bringing me to this wonderful franchise and bringing me great entertainment for 2 seasons!

    Same goes for me. Without SGU, I would've never considered watching SG-1 or SGA.

    I am currently watching season one and just fell in love with the "extras" on the dvd. The cast interaction was fabulous to see. Louis Ferreira is hilarious!

    I agree with everyone here as well.

    I too watched Darkness not once but twice lastnight, on two different networks. And it brought back memories of watching this episode for the first time. Couldn't believe how short some of the cast's hair was (Patrick, Peter and Louis for example).

    I will always cherish this series and the DVD's especially. I wear my SGU T-shirt and hoodie today proudly.

    The cast and crew of Stargate Universe ROCK and I will always be better for having known you. LOVE ALWAYS!!!!

    I totally agree! Thank You! In fact I saw season 1 at the store and was deciding whether or not to get it or wait for the complete series set, but I got it because 1) it would help let MGM know I still care 2) I want it now!

    I have watched my SGU season one Blu-Ray set more than any Blu-Ray or DVD I own, and while I am extremely upset at the cancellation, I consider SGU to be like Firefly; while it is sad that it never got to tell its full story, what we have is worth appreciating

    And now some compliments from me.

    I think that SGU is one of the best sci-fi ever created. I did not like last 2 seasons of SGA, but I was simply amazed with SGU.

    SGU will be my first thing to buy on DVD (Slovenia is a pirate nation, noone buys DVD's)

    Sadly I have to only agree partialy. ( A little off topic... )
    About Slovenia. SPOILER TAG only because it's off topic.
    Spoiler:

    Very few people buy Movies, but the DVDs sell quite well. Even fewer people buy Series.
    But there's also the thing about price and availability. A DVD with Croatian subtitles is worth next to nothing to me and it's often the only thing they sell, for a full price (which is higher than in Italy, Germany, Australia, UK or USA). Or if the price is low it's because it's a megazine or newspaper edition and the quality is also low! (video and manufacturing). And very few Series get released here. I'm still waiting for BSG seasons 3 and 4. But I'll probably never get them. I own all seasons on USA DVDs but it didn't stop me buying the first two seasons (in Slovenia) as soon as they were released because if I waited a little longer they might not be available anymore (like Serenity, I only saw it for 2 months, and then it was gone).
    So I usually prefer the UK, Australian, Italian or USA editions of Movies and Series.
    I'm still waiting for SG-1 DVDs, but they'll never come.
    I look for them in Italy but haven't seen them yet. So is there any other way but piracy? Maybe only foreign market as mentioned above.


    And I have to agree on the topic as well. SGU is fantastic. I felt too often that they tried to copy BSG and failed, but still they did it differently and as a whole, the show is just fantastic.
    It'll be sad in a few weeks time, when there will be no stargate to look forward to...

    lol, dont say that loud its just we buy quality when we know it is quality!

    some of you loved only SGU, some SG1, but i loved all about stargate ever! since the first movie i remember to be their fan!
    thesadest thing is that its notfinished, and expected movies and series were canceled becouse of financial shortage ... perhaps buying their DVDs would improve the situation, with a promise to continue with some reasonable epiloques for series and movies, no open endings!

    Yeah, thank you my beloved Stargate Universe, the first series where I was following all the beginnings with the casting calls, the trailers, the birth, the life and then unhappily, the death, and together with the background videos and little stories, thanks to MGM site and Mr. Mallozzi's blog. A very exciting and rewarding period, and the first time that I make fan vids about the Stargate franchise.

    I'll likely buy the season 1 and season 2 blurays. And I don't buy much these days, I've been unemployed too long. I would say DVD, but I just got a new player for my birthday.

    Great imagery throughout the series. I just wish it had gone on long enough to get it's legs, so to speak.

    Stargate Universe, while I didn't think the franchise itself was ready for such a show for the tone just yet, was a great show. The second season was really putting everything together.

    Thank you, Stargate Universe, for continuing the adventures through the gate.

    Thanks to particularly the cast and crew, it looks to me like you did everything that was asked of you by the creative staff and for that you should be applauded.

    I'll stop short of saying thank you to the creative staff though, I feel they are the ones who have dealt the killing blow to SGU and possibly the entire Stargate franchise.
