Re: You can have only ONE: New Star Trek or New Stargate?

Yea, I didn't have any issue with the darker tone, my issues early on was the way they went about that darker tone, by making all the characters annoying, and a chore to watch. By mid-first season, they started paying some of that off, making the characters more 'Humanized" and then started moving away from all the characters being horrible. You can have internal conflict without having to resort to giving the audience no one to relate to.

Re: You can have only ONE: New Star Trek or New Stargate?

True, but it takes time to get characters right. I think part of the problem these days is that the studios/audiance expect everything to be right from the first episode.

This is true, most people give it the Pilot or maybe 1 or two more episodes, and bail these days. Long gone are the days when people would look for the potential that just wasn't showing yet early on. It's gotta be great from the get-go or forget it.

That's why I am still watching Defiance. Old school hanging on like grim death, waiting for the sweets.
