    Do we know if the remaining eps have been filmed already? It'd be nice if a resolution is forthcoming.

    Yes, the latter half of season two is finished, as of at least last month.

    Yeah its all been filmed and S2 will end on a cliffhanger:rolleyes: so there will be no resolution which will be a sad way to end the franchise.

    i'n not saying SGU shouldn't be criticized. certainly it should and i have been quite critical of it myself. what i'm saying is that certain shows take awhile to find their legs. TNG being a good example. yes, a good show should capture your attention and keep it. but this doesn't always happen.

    The funny thing is, ENT didn't get good till S4.

    What's the point of saying something is good (or bad) when your sensibilities are telling you otherwise? There's no point to lying, either to bash a show to appear cool to people on some BBS you don't even know, or to praise a show to fit in with people on some BBS you don't even know. The only sensible thing to do is to tell the truth.

    Nobody should ever have to "wait for a show to get good."

    Don't worry, I've bashed it to shreds and then some, just not here. :rommie: Earlier today I was over in the BSG forum, reminding everyone that the characterization of the Cylons never made any damn sense and torpedoed the story logic from the outset. Far be it from me to play favorites. But SG:U was at a different level of suckitude from BSG, which was pretty entertaining to watch if you ignored the little detail that the whole story had big problems at the most fundamental level.

    You forgot The Lost Room miniseries. And Children of Dune.

    I'm going to miss it. I really liked Eli and thought that his presence added many interesting moments. The stories weren't stupid, they worked to make the sidebar characters interesting and the effects were top of the line more often than not.

    People keep posting this hope, but no one has answered three very important questions:

    1. Why would MGM's new owners and/or Syfy want to pay for a telemovie for a failed series?
    2. What incentive would Syfy have to air it, given the ratings failure of the series?
    3. Why wouldn't Syfy and MGM simply want the SG-1 telemovie that already has a finished script and which would be far less risky in terms of ratings?

    Also, in regards to these claims that SGU should have a telemovie or something to resolve it, I ask why? According to this interview SGU was mean to be a five year story that could be told in one year. I'll quote Joseph Mallozzi:

    Maybe they should have taken this five year story and told it in the one year he claims it could have taken. Then maybe the show might have been good, possibly draw in some viewers. But instead they took their season-long story arc and tried milking it for five years with pointless filler like Time, Pain and Cloverdale. If they couldn't be bothered to reslove the show on their own accord when they had the chance, if they went and ended it on a cliffhanger when the writing was on the wall, than they don't deserve a second chance to finish the story.

    Come on now. Its not because they deserve a second chance or whatever, its so us fans can at least have closure to the series, instead of it ending on this f**king cliffhanger (:rolleyes:). I could care two hoots about them, but I do care about my own satisfaction.

    This is exactly why so many people don't bother watching genre shows on television anymore. Why should we, it will just inevitable be canceled, resulting in a non-ending / cliffhanger.

    Better to just wait for the DVDs at least then you know if it is worth your time, or not to bother should it be canceled.

    Which is more painful: to have a really rubbish first season, then gradually improve into something much more promising, only to be cancelled; or start with a brilliant first season and they gradually squander it, finally becoming a boring mess?

    Well, BSG stayed brilliant throughout -- with some lapses, but they always got their mojo back. So I'll take that over SGU any day.

    Yes.

    And I loved the finale, too.

    Yes, believe it or not, some of us loved BSG all the way until the end.
