Re: Sci-fi greenlights STARGATE: UNIVERSE

My biggest concern is how in the world (or in this case, the universe) will this format allow them to have recurring villains or guest characters?

I just don't see how this can work... Unless they are doing a Outer Limits / Quantum Leap type show. Which I doubt.

I'm not going to judge it until I see it. Although I do kinda how they move to a new location, so we're not stuck with the same old "planets".
I'm sure we'll see the same variety of pine-tree filled planets as has been the case with the other two Stargate TV series.

100 bucks says it'll be the same old excuse: "well the Ancients would have only seeded stargates on planets hospitable to human life."

Will Stargate: Universe have a clone lesbian kiss scene like BSG?

Re: Sci-fi greenlights STARGATE: UNIVERSE

Wait a minute. How F-ing fast does a ship have to be going to get out of range of a stargate within days?

Geez, it's going to be a different galaxy every month.

Seeing how fast ships go and come the pegasus galaxy it's not that surprising that an Ancient ship could travel even faster than our ships do.

Yup.

All these kinds of comments are making me laugh.....because the rest of SG is Shakespeare?!?


Seriously - among people I know, the SGs are jokes. They are NOT taken seriously and are considered the worst kind of popcorn nonsense SF.


You expected better from another series?!?

Has anyone said that SG:1 or SG:A are Shakespeare?

Or do you not think it *can* get any worse? Because I assure you - IT CAN.

All I would hope for is that SG:U won't make the rest of SG look like Shakespeare...

I don't see the point in bashing a show that's yet to even be filmed, let alone air.

We're bashing because it sounds terrible; and probably will be.

Lighten up.

Re: Sci-fi greenlights STARGATE: UNIVERSE

So tracking that... The next Stargate series will be a prequel?

How the frak would that work?

Frak me.

Captain Scott.

Captain "I'm just going out, I may be some time" Scott who died during his turn of the century expedition to find the Santa's workshop didn't die at all... HE FOUND THE STARGATE!

An Edwardian Explorer tremendously fighting tooth and claw through the reaches of the G'Ould occupied territories... My, that sounds like a cross between John Carter, John Crichton and Flash Gordon.

You need to lighten up and no it doesn't sound any worse than any other premise.

These days, yes, unfortunately. There was a time when SG-1 was pretty good, though....I wonder how much of the credit for that goes to Jonathan Glassner.

Not unless they get some fresh minds on the problem.
