    I have just written in the other thread that maybe the fourth series will come to Amazon as it is a good sign that the old SG shows are back.

    I wasn't aware if they weren't available in the first place because I have them all on a SSD and in case I'm not home, but I have internet access and want to watch them I can find a place to stream them for free.
    I mean sure, some might be opposed to that, but the small time I'm away from home and finding myself wanting to watch some Stargate simply not worth the money for me to pay for a streaming service. Especially if it's the only thing I would watch there.
    I do hope we will get more Stargate and a continuation this time. Not that Origins were bad, but origin stories will always have this unfortunate thing: We already know how it will/must end, therefore we might not care much about the characters, because we already know if they going to die or survive. That only leaves the story, which in Origin was a quite a bit lackluster. I mean we already knew that the German plot was not going to be succesful, we already knew that Catherine must somehow forget what happened and that the hand device can take away/alter/extract memories,etc.

    I don't know if the story will go the same as in the books or incorporate them in some way, because if it does then those who read them might not find anything new in those stories to satisfy hos/her curiosity.
    I mean that's one reason why I have decided against reading the books so far. The other was that i did not know about them. LOL.

    Looks like it's a mix between SG-1 and Universe according to thos article:

    Let's hope it actually makes into the small screen.

    I hope that the new if it is coming in few years it will be episode based. As universe didnt work with the season a story or 2 seasons a story. Would be nice if the go to some new galaxy and have new interesting things in there but will stay in the same concept as the sg1 and atlantis.

    Especially when they make it 1 episode a week then i want it to be one story a week but have continuation in the long run trough out the season. But when they make a season a story then it needs to be all out to binge watch cause time have moved forward and now we have streaming platforms so this one episode a week dont work if the story is full season. I dont like the new star trek cause it's one episode a week and the story is full of plot holes of so many episodes. And well it's not dystopia too so thats more a reason not to like

    With Universe it's not so much the story or the premise I didn't like, but the cast. It was a very odd bunch of people, who for me just failed to make any good impressions. From there it was all downhill later on. I also didn't like that story when all of the scientists and non military staff banded together against the military. I mean the military was there to protect them: Like don't be stupid man. I was like WTF? They are in a completely unknown part of the universe with countless alien races, threats out there and they fighting each other. So stupid. At least the scientists should have known better. Season 2 I didn't even watch because I was just so alienated by all of this senselesness and bad acting and I just generally didn't give a damn about either of the characters. Sure there was good actors there also, but the majority of the cast was terrible. Not any familiar face, except when they used the stones and we could see a marvellous RDA cameo. That was about the only highlight I could remember from the show.

    Maybe you should give a go with the second season as it is much better than season one. It has got a crossover episode with McKay as well. But the acting, the story and all the supporting characters are written much better after they have established them in season 1.

    When I wrote my fan fiction continuation, I simply started just after the end of SGU and then worked my way forward. I sneaked time jumps into the plot and by now made my up to January 2020. I hope that any new TV show takes the same approach. Because having this huge gap in the lives of all these beloved characters would stink.

    A gap is unfortunately inevitable as there is more than ten years have passed by now. Even more if you consider the 2 main shows: SG-1 and Atlantis. For me SGU will always remain a sidekick, the black sheep of the family that most of the fans hate, including me.
    I'm sorry Platschu I just don't see myself watching it. I even asked if someone could recap me the whole of SGU in one of my other recent threads.
    So wherever we pick up it will be a gap for mainly two reasons:

    1)If we consider cameos: actors age and 10 years is a lot. Brad Wright will certainly wouldn't want to spend budget that might be needed elsewhere in the show to digitally or otherwise de-age actors for who knows how many episodes.

    2) If we want a fresh, up to date story that cathes the eyes of this generation Z we have no choice but to continue in this new decade. Computer technology and stuff we use and what actors will use in the show would need to reflect on the technology of today, except the imaginary alien gadgets and futuristic tech.

    That said if we imagine they started rolling the camera tomorrow morning, they would most certainly start with a story starting in 2020 and would maybe fill in the gap with flashbacks to the past decade, but maybe only in passing comments, little hints here and there or chit-chat. The occasional slide of someone remembering in a short video segment, stuff like that.
