    Any fans here?

    http://www.gateworld.net/universe/s2/

    Ive been watching since season one, i prefer the style of filming and overall feel of SGU.

    Reminds me a little of the BSG filming? Ok maybe not as dark and dirty, or as edgy, but you can see the similarities.

    So anyone here watch it?

    I have and do, although it hasn't really garnished my interest as much as SG1 and Atlantis have.

    I renamed this thread Stargate Universe (Season 2) and I changed the other to Stargate Universe (Season 1). We've done this for other shows and as long as members keep their comments in the appropriate thread, then I think it works well. Happy discussing SGU!


    I do like the show and TiVo every episode, but I still miss SG1 as I felt connected to the characters (yeah I know, it's been years -- get over it). The best part of this season, is I'm finally feeling like I know the crew. It makes it more enjoyable.

    See whilst i liked SG1, i think SGU is a step in the right direction, i wasnt really a fan of SGA even with its crossovers to SG1.

    I prefer the more in depth, character driven style of SG with SGU, its a bit darker, I think they've put a lot more thought into how relevant it is for todays viewers.

    uuhh... ok. i hope you made a typo there and didnt double up ;)

    sorting by seasons is a great idea though *hint*
    edit: damn you caught it. ;)


    totally! mirroring that feeling, they really have gone to a more storyline feel though - it has taken nearly the entire 1.5 seasons to get into it and for us to understand them! they really are pushing for it to last many many seasons (which i hope it does), but i just wanna see more action and maybe give them some bloody power over that ship!!

    It was because of McCay wasn't it? McCay can fix anything, McCay knows everything. All bow before the brilliance of McCay. They should have named him Gary Stu.:rolleyes: For me, Sheppard was the annoying character. He's also a Gary Stu character with an annoying the OC mentality. I actually liked bits of SGA, only the part with McCay and Shep was bad.

    I'm liking Universe, although I find Scott pretty darn annoying. Greer and Rush are hands down my favorite. So very anti-McCay/anti-Shep. I'm glad the made Chloe useful or less useless than before. I couldn't stand her in season 1.
    Looks like Rush has Chloe under his thumb and now possibly Scott. I'm waiting for the next Rush/Young I'm in charge confrontation. Could be interesting, since Rush winning would mean he'll tell everyone that he cracked the master code.:)

    Greers pretty awesome in my opinion, I like the guy.

    I don't mind Scott so much, but a few weeks ago I was watching an episode, and I suddenly thought, "he looks like an elf", -check the guys nose and ears.

    I think they have a good dynamic, I like that they're exploring the characters, however I get worried sometimes that they feature too much on this -I'd prefer a little more action, some more CGI, some more spacefights etc. I guess im comparing it to BSG which was constant CGI Scifi blowy uppy goodness.

    its part of "Intervention" part 2 & 3. which is season 1 last episode (12?), season 1 episode 1 and episode 2 :)

    episode list.

    sure, nobody read below if they dont want spoilers.


    ...



    the ship was taken over by the Alliance, TJ ended up getting shot - they had to sacrifice the baby to save TJ.

    for a wierd twist, TJ was taken back to the planet where they left some of the crew (back in season 1) and they took her baby - its now safe. whether or not she dreamt that we dont know, i presume her consciousness was taken out of her to the planet, or something.

    For me it was Teyla. Made SGA too much lik DS9 with the spiritual Bajoran nonsense and far too predictable/clichéd a character and storylines when she was involved.

    I could also suggest the Irish actor Colm Meany from DS9 appearing in SGA as well to make that comparison complete. But SGA really jumped the shark with Lucius. Jumped it twice with Lucius' return. Lost in Space type lack of imagination. How many identical villages/planets did they visit with the predictable "my people have traded with this village/planet, before the Wraith.." Teyla line? And when one of those villages had Lucius in it, the series was doomed.. ;)

    DoFoT9 Thank you!

    I'm not sure if it's just how it's been aired in the UK but they split the first season in a weird and VERY annoying way, which is how I must have missed a couple episodes here and there. I think I may have missed another episode this season too. My DVR box is not always the best at notifying me of recording clashes. :mad:

    no problems!

    it was totally odd how they aired it, some episodes had 2 or 3 week gaps in between. and the final episode from s01 took a few months to come out! so i dont know what happened there, but season 2 is coming along very nicely - i just watched the latest (episode 7) which was pretty exciting. in my opinion episdes 3->7 have been the very best of the entire series!

    It's irritating is what it is. It's that kind of crap that makes me tempted to pirate complete seasons so I don't have to deal with wondering if I've missed something. (Not helped by the COMPLETELY stupid and unintuitive Virgin Media DVR box that doesn't bother telling you what episode number or name it is.)

    I just saw episode 6.

    Tell you what, episode 5 (Cloverdale) made me think of District 9... and because of the way they jumped right into that storyline I thought I may have missed another episode. I really like SGU but between their season/episode irrregularity, my lousy DVR box and the show's complexity it can be tough to follow.

    oh dont get me started on that! my pay TV company kept changing the times! had to keep a very close eye on the TV guide, and yeh it didnt show episode numbers either so i just had to put the plots together after

    what did you think? i quite liked it, in 7 you will find out a 1 or 2 things about the simulation :)

    episode 5 did? hmm i thought the alien encounter s02e03 (Awakening) was more District9 ;)

    overall the episodes arent really tied together that much, but the characters seem to flow on.

    Not that anyone probably cares, but this show just ended last Monday. The ending was so bad that I wasn't sure it was the last one until I went and checked the SYFY schedule for the next few months. It's like they just gave up and threw something together.

    Well, it's okay... but its a cliffhanger...

    I hate networks that just keeps cancelling shows randomly. At least its giving me more time to enjoy the fresh air.
