Stargate: Universe

I am really feeling this show lately. I am old school Stargate. Not one of my proudest boasts – but I’ve been hooked since the first movie. Watching all of SG1 and then even following the foray in to Atlantis (which was ok dammit!) and then even hung around when the whole SG1 team changed…

Then it all sorta closed up. A few TV movie type things were released (see Ark of Truth etc) but they were just to close up the plot lines. I went off and pursued other interests. Battlestar Gallactica scratched that itch for a while – but at times it was trying.

Imagine my joy when SGU was released and billed as a cross between Atlantis and BSG. All the good bits of Stargate (aliens, space… and errr Stargates!) crossed with the adult concepts of BSG. Win.

Half way through season one and its pretty decent. I’d recommend it to anyone looking for something after BSG has closed up (along with Caprica – post to come). Good character to development. Decent plot line with a heap of space to grow – pretty much the way it is structured allows for it to go in any direction without an end in sight. People are trapped on a spaceship here!

The last ep I watched (ep 11 – Space) introduced some what of an ‘enemy’ alien race that I imagine will keep coming up in the series. Akin to the ‘wraith’ in Atlantis or the ‘ghould’ in SG1.

If you haven’t had a chance to hit it up and you like the SciFi (ScyFy – OH GOD NO!). Get in there and have a watch.

post script: It pains me to say – but there are inconsistencies. Jemma says I am too picky about these things…. but really. On a spaceship. Trapped. In space. Alone. Where do people get new/clean clothes? I guess there could be some form of alien laundromat on ‘destiny’ … ok what about ammo then? surely they are going to run out.

MOVING ON! or else I will dwell for evar!
