I was irritated with the show when I had to stop letting my kid watch it with us (she had watched all the others) but I am just getting bored.

The characters are annoying me. If the ship blew up or was crushed by a black hole I probably wouldn't care.

Aww! DH and I watch! But we are pretty hardcore stargate fans in general. Is it as good as Atlantis? No way. But I'm interested. I want to see what happens, at least.

We actually own all the stargate DVDs.

But I also own Battlestar Galactica. It seems like they are trying to make Stargate into BSG and I am not liking it.

Sorry

Yep. Still watching it. Probably just because we have the DVR set to record it and we're not watching much else right now. The plotlines are so old and predictable. I agree - it's boring.
I did eventually give up on Atlantis. I can't imagine sticking with Universe much longer.

You can find me on Facebook. PM for info.

I do like Rush ok.

Mostly because he wasn't intimate with someone's body while they weren't there.

FWIW if anyone *EVER* needs to borrow my body for some reason or another it is NOT ok to sleep with people in my body.

I'm waiting for the one where some guy needs to switch with TJ. It will be so movie of the week (if its not played for laughs).

More cool yet scary aliens! I'd even like more adventures on pine tree planets just to get off of the ship.

Less of young, less of the shipboard politics, less Chloe

More adventure, less claustrophobia.

We still watch it because DH will watch anything sci-fi and I want to share some TV show with him.

DH watches it...I usually do chores while he does. I'm not crazy about the sex scenes. I enjoyed the other two Stargate series and I just cannot get into this one.

Same here, I didn't watch very much of the original Stargate series (DH is a hardcore fan) I picked up toward the end and then we went through Atlantis together and now we're watching Universe.

I wasn't impressed with the sex scenes either.

I am not a prude but I used to let my kid watch Stargate. So there we are watching the first episode and bow chika wow wow. I was displeased

Hehe I've heard it called Battlestargate Universe. It's waiting on the DVR but we kinda quit after the first few. We LOVED SG1, this is just too much drama and suspense...actually reminds me of my impression of LOST, which I never got into either.

I'm kinda liking the season finale. It feels much more tied in with the mythology of SG and not just because Jack and Sam appear

We are HUGE Battlestar Galactica fans, so we picked up on this. We are way behind on the DVR, probably 3 or so episodes.

Yes, I agree, they are trying to make it like BSG. DH and I often compare people to BSG people. (I actually call the Colonel, "Admiral" and I wish he had a hot son, sigh...)

We never watched any of the previous Stargates, except for the movie. I like this okay. We are also watching V, because we are big sci-fi fans. Both series COULD be a lot better. Maybe next season?

The new season premiered this week. The finale was satisfactorily concluded but it was sad.

I am still watching, but the plot holes really annoy me at times.

Or I would've jumped ship with the others at that planet.

I'm still enjoying it, but then I might be biased because I really like Robert Carlisle. It's quite funny seeing him on that having known him from Trainspotting.

A few of the characters annoy me, and what's with the annoying, whiney music at the end of each episode? But other than that I quite like it.

Will I lose all my geek cred if I say it was really nice to see the cast in some different clothes this episode?

My other incredibly deep observation is that I guess Justin Louis can act I just can't stand his character of Colonel Young.

That is why he seemed familiar!

I figure he is possessed by the insect things. I can't imagine why else he would do the things he has been doing. I haven't seen tonight's episode so maybe that is obvious by now.

I will have to watch it on on demand but yeah..one does like a change now and then.


I don't like Colonel Young either. I guess there is a reason he was stationed way out on a base in the middle of nowhere.

Stargate Universe is different and a darker plotline. It started slow but got better as it made it to the second season. SyFy cancelled a good show. But look what happened to Star Trek It gained more popularity after cancellation.

It did get better toward the end. I wondered if the cast was more relaxed after they knew it had been cancelled but apparently the announcment came after all the episode had been filmed. Syfy did it no favors by moving it to Tuesday. I'm just not in the mood for that kind of drama in the middle of week. Friday is my science fiction night. 

 

I've just been watching old SG-1 to get my sci fi fix. There doesn't seem to be much else. I like Santuary, Warehouse 13, and Haven but would like a little more wonder and science and a little less woo.
