Stargate Universe – Is TJ Dead? Season 1 cliffhanger June 12, 2010

Posted by showmescifi in scifi.
Tags: , , , ,

Incursion Part 2 the Season 1 cliffhanger for Stargate Universe was a DUMB episode wasn’t it?

Why didn’t Young storm the gateroom? WTF?

Why would he surrender control? so Rush could MAYBE get it back? Just seems dumb.

And TJ dead? What’s up with that? Most likely she’s lost the baby – but hopefully she’ll be back for season 2.

No this isn’t as good a cliffhanger in some respects as the mid-season one when Rush was left behind — but he got back pretty easily didn’t he?

In this case — someone will die. that we know. What will also likely happen is the Lutians will stay on board the ship too, creating another dynamic.

But let’s all keep our fingers crossed that the Lutians find their way to putting poor Chloe out of her misery….for Eli’s sake.

Stargate Universe – Telford is a Traitor – as SG-1’s Jackson and O’Neil cameo May 24, 2010

With Stargate Universe being a very different type of show than typical Stargates – it’s great to have an episode like —Subversion that brings us right back into the world of SG-1 and the genesis of this series.

The whole leutian alliance thing – seems so far away – cause it is after all 18 episodes and 17 hours + of this show ago right?

That said, is it any surprise that there was a traitor?

Now we don’t really know Col. Telford all the much so we don’t care, but still neat to make that whole connection.

Also great to see General O’Neil get on board Destiny for the first time.

Stargate Universe is its own show, but we should never forget that is it (thanks to the stones) tightly linked with the whole Stargate universe of shows.  Wonder when the Stargate Atlantis team will show up…

Stargate Universe – Pain – Lt. James is a Nympho Nutbag May 17, 2010

Stargate Universe –Pain – started off in a way that made us second guess if we were watching the right channel.

Lt. James (that’s her breasts on the left) semi-naked rolling around with Lt. Scott.  If we wanted to watch porn, we wouldn’t watch Syfy. But hey that’s Lt. James role in this show. She’s the disturbed nympho that craves getting Lt Scott back and would kill him if she could.

Why every shot of her focuses on her breasts is all about her role in the show. It’ll be interesting to see if she ever moves beyond the sex to be a real character or if the camera is just stuck on her for one reason alone.

Stargate Universe – Lt. James Sabotage – and how did Chloe, Scott and Eli get back so fast? May 9, 2010

Sabotage was an interesting episode on many levels.

How the heck did Scott, Eli and Chloe get back so fast? you mean they just stayed on that planet hoping that the remote would activate?? really?

AND finally loads of screen time for Lt. James – though kind of lame that we didn’t see her actually sabotage the systems…that might have been good to see.

The big mystery now is what happened to Dr. Franklin? Has he somehow become ‘one’ with Destiny such that he has ascended to become part of the shiP?

Stargate Universe – Eli, Chole and Lt. Scott – Lost in Space?? May 2, 2010

Lost was another Stargate Universe Episode that defied expectations.

As opposed to SG-1 or Stargate Atlantis – Scott, Chole and Eli didn’t make it back to the gate in time – and they should have stayed with Greer.


That was a shocker wasn’t it? So close and yet sooo very far.

The overlay of Greer’s issues with his Dad was a great foil to the background of the story – with one team searching for Destiny while Destiny searched for the team.

Somehow we don’t think that Eli will be lost forever – he’s too smart and will figure something out…won’t he?

After all Rush made his way back — and after barely an episode too.

Stargate Universe – 46 is the Key to Destiny April 24, 2010

Human was yet another fine episode of Stargate Universe.

Yeaah a little slow with Rush’s dream — but we get some real insight into why that dude is soo messed up.

And how about the Daniel Jackson cameo? kind of wasted in this episode wasn’t it?

But you had to love the ’46’ number and Jackson remembering what all Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy fans know well – 42 – is the most important number in the universe!

Eli, Chole, Scott and Greer will be recovered — that we know – just going to be a question of when.

Stargate Universe – Faith – TJ is messed up April 19, 2010

Faith was another fine Stargate Universe episode. Who or what created the mystery planet?

It’s clear that the oblesik was communicating with something but what? I’m sure we’re going to find out…eventually.

kinda lame that some ppl wanted to stay behind on the planet on the blind hope that some higher power was looking out for them ..sucky that Chloe was going to stay and then didn’t. The show would be better off without her at this point.

The whole TJ is pregnant thing is an interesting twist – but would have been more interesting if she had been pregnant by the planet – instead of Col Young. But still will make for some drama.

The other dumb thing is how they gave up half their shuttle fleet — for what? Sure it was kind of broken but they have so few resources as it is…

Ohh and that robot they found in the newly opened section of the ship ..that’s going to be interesting …

Stargate Universe – Divided was one AWESOME episode. Military 1 Civillians 0 April 12, 2010

Stargate Universe is a GREAT show. You need to look no further than this weeks episode Divided to see that.

Rush and the civilians try to take over the ship – but loose out to the military that take it right back.

Wasn’t it sweet to see Col Young just walk into the room where Rush was – after the mutiny? What drama!

Chloe is also clearly a beeatch choosing Rush over her sleeping buddy – not the right choice for her. And let’s hope Eli doesn’t fall for her either.

Somehow the crew will get along – or not – but it just adds to the dynamic aboard that makes this show so much fun to watch. Added to that is the ongoing power issue with Destiny itself. Eli and Rush will need to figure out how to get more power so they can have full shield and be able to return fire when next the super-Asgard attack.

Stargate Universe – Rush is Back and Lt. James is Lonely April 4, 2010

After it’s mid-season break Stargate Universe is back with its first new episode in months (Divided) and so is Rush.

Wow that was fast – we would have like to see Rush lost for a bit longer ..it just seems too fast and too convenient the way he got back.

And who are the bad aliens? They look like Asgards on Steroids.

The other weird bit was seeing Lt. Vanessa James (our friend with the natural assets) crying at the end because no one wanted to get busy with her. Kinda weird but after Scott ended up with Chole, James is feeling lonely.

In any event – great having SGU back. The dynamic on board Destiny will  be even more tense now then before with Rush plotting to take over and the Aliens out there trying to take them all on.

Really solid interview with Brian J Smith the actor that plays Lt Scott in Stargate Universe.

He basically reveals that how Rush gets back to the ship will shock us and oh yeah he was angry with the season 1 finale (to come).

Check out the full interview below:

Last we saw Doctor Rush he was abandoned by the Destiny – left for dead.

Sure we know he’s coming back — there was that alien ship there after all – but how? (and yes we know that Eli knows the truth too or does he?)

Now the people at MGM have put together a FANTASTIC idea for a content – a Write your own comic contest – of what will happen to Dr. Rush.

So far there are a few interesting entries – and yeah we’re going to give it a shot too.

After all like the people at Dark Horse say – “We Love Comics!!”

Stargate Universe Needs Our Help to Improve the Show January 28, 2010

SGU Producer Joe Mallozzi WANTS our opinion – the opinion of the fans for what we want to see.

So, as we prep for the show’s second season – and keeping in mind you haven’t seen the more action-oriented back half of season one – I’d like to know:

1. Which character would you like to see explored more?

2. What aspect of the show would you like to see exploited more?

3. What aspect of the show would prefer to see minimized?

4. What was your favorite “story moment” from the first half of SGU’s first season?

5. What element (I’m leaving this one wide open) would you like to see added to the series as a whole?

K so here’s our ideas:

1. Which character would you like to see explored more? Eli! he’s the best character on the show. Though it might be fun to see a minor character a person that we’ve never seen before emerge to be interesting too – a wrong person, wrong place thing.

2. What aspect of the show would you like to see exploited more?

-The ship! we’ve barely seen the ship so far.

3. What aspect of the show would prefer to see minimized?

-the stones and the trips back to Earth – it was fun for a bit – now it’s just dumb.

4. What was your favorite “story moment” from the first half of SGU’s first season?

-fav story moment was in the loop episode where the crew realize that everything has already happened and will happen again.

5. What element (I’m leaving this one wide open) would you like to see added to the series as a whole?

-G’hould! Wraith! some familiar enemy

Stargate Universe Renewed – Will be back for 20 episodes in Season 2 December 14, 2009

The good folks at SyFy are so very much unlike the idiots that run Fox – aren’t they?

Today SyFy announced that Stargate Universe is being picked for a second season.

That’s good news.

No Stargate Universe is not the best iteration of Stargate – the first season so far has had an equal share of hits to misses – and it really does seem like Voyager meets 90210.

But it is evolving with each episode and it’s a show that despite some of our first negativity is actually starting to grow on us ..

That’s why a decent scifi show needs at least two – if not 3 or more seasons to mature.

Let’s just hope that Stargate Universe does mature beyond its pre-pubescent approach that we’ve seen so far..

Stargate Universe Rush is lost in space but will Eli tell ?? December 6, 2009

wow what another great episode –Justice
– Stargate Universe Season 1 episode 10 started off as a typical whodunnit..

But with the added who framed Col Young twist this was one interesting episode.

So..it Rush lost? Not likely, that alien ship will be his ticket back to Earth and Destiny at some point.

Will Eli tell anyone what he suspects? oohhh yeah..EVENTUALLY he will, just a question of when.

Stargate Universe Season 1 Episode 10 – Justice – a mid-season cliffhanger November 27, 2009

Posted by showmescifi in scifi.
Tags: , , , ,

No new Stargate Universe this week, but next week will be the last episode for a few months…
Yeah we hate mid-season finales too.

The basic story behind the mid-season finale is another character story – this time we’ve got a murder on the destiny.

Everyone is shocked when a member of the crew is found dead from a gunshot wound. While at first glance it appears to be suicide, the gun is nowhere to be found. The crew is confined to quarters while a search is performed and when the gun shows up in Col. Young’s (LOUIS FERREIRA) quarters, he becomes the number one suspect. Fearing a mob scene, Young agrees to a trial and cedes command to Camile Wray (MING-NA).

Dr. Rush (ROBERT CARLYLE) convinces Wray to give him control of the science team and carte blanche with the new Ancient interface, previously kept under guard. But before Rush can unlock its secret, or Young’s trial can conclude, both are needed to explore a planet hiding a secret that threatens the Destiny and her crew.

Stargate Universe : It’s been the worst day since yesterday – and more Lesbians November 21, 2009

Posted by showmescifi in scifi.
Tags: , , , , ,

Stargate Universe Episode 9 – titled –Life – wasn’t as good as the last episode but it was still kinda neat.

The background song -It’s been the worst day since yesterday – was so cool at the beginning and at the end it just fit so well.

We know Col Young’s wife was with Telfrod, and get that they had nice fight at the end.

The whole thing with Scott having a son,kinda interesting and just gives us more insight into his troubled nature.

Then there was the Lesbians (with Camille) –

Oh and we found out there is a ship’s slut, though it isn’t Lt. James.

And once again we see that Rush is a scumbag. What’s up with him lying about an icarus type planet a year away?

Overall a decent character development episode for the major SGU characters – though Eli got little screen time.

Life on the Destiny isn’t like other Stargate shows, there aren’t constant attacks by G’ould, wraith or Orii – it’s mostly a lonely existence.

And just in case you want to hear that great song again – it’s from a band called Flogging Molly – enjoy!

Stargate Universe – Time – For a moment there, I thought we were in trouble.. BEST EPISODE YET OF SGU!! November 14, 2009

Posted by showmescifi in scifi.
Tags: , , , ,

sgu We’ve had our doubts about SGU over the first 7 episodes, and to borrow a line from this episode, ..for a few moments there I thought we were in trouble.

Episode 8, titled Time blew us away. Easily the best episode yet and one of the best Stargate episodes of any stargate series yet.

We’ve got a time loop within a timeloop within a timeloop.

Everyone dies, twice.

How frakking cool is that?

Sure Lt. Scott is the mega hero making sure the Keno gets back in all timelines, but it’s still cool.

The layer upon layer of complexity in this episode is what great science fiction is all about. Decent characters (though a little cheese with Eli and Chloe), aliens ripping out human guts and oh yeah some SCIENCE  FICTION(with the multiple time loops) as opposed to bogus pulp.

sguThat was one strange episode – in that it was all about personal relationships. SGU episode 7 Earth gave us more insight into Destiny’s crew and their history on Earth.

Col Young getting back together with his ex – while inside of Telford’s body was kinda freaky – especially when the communication between the stones was interrupted.

But how about that ending ? With the REAL Telford showing up at Young’s Ex’s door? Are they having their own clandestine relationship that Young didn’t know about?


And poor Eli — shafted by Chloe yet again.

But Eli had the best lines in the whole show introducing himself as Phillip Fry – (a clear Futurama reference). Bender would be proud.

Stargate Universe Episode 6 Water – What was that alien sand man? October 31, 2009

sgu Another decent, but not great episode. Water follows other monosyllabic episode names like light and darkness..and wonder what’s next.

The Destiny loses half of its water and the command staff is checking the crew to see who has taken ..what??

That was dumb. What did Lt. Scott see on ice world (Hoth as Eli called it) when he saw the sand-man? what was that?


But how about Choloe and Lt. Scott still shaggin? and then Lt. Vanessa ‘hooters’ James had a nice moment ..but still cheesy. In the first episode she was with Scott in the cleaning room after all..seems kinda dumb.


This episode did have better pacing than prior episode and the dual plot lines kept up engaged. That said, this show sooner rather than later does need to pick up the pace.

We can’t have every episode as the search for something they’re missing. We can’t have every episode about Chloe and Lt. Scott. We need to see more of Destiny too.

In Stargate Atlantis it too a while for the base team to explore the whole ship. How come they haven’t explored Destiny yet? There has got to be some cool stuff on that ship that we haven’t seen yet.

Stargate Universe Light – Did Rush Know About Destiny’s Solar Collectors? October 24, 2009

Posted by showmescifi in scifi.
Tags: , , ,

sgu Episode of Stargate Universe – Light -was kinda/sorta interesting.

Yes it SUCKS that Chole didn’t hook up with Eli.

BUT the whole thing with Destiny going through the Corona of a star to recharge was kinda neat – and also obvious.

What bothered us about this episode was how most of the crew just seemed so hopeless. No one was really doing anything. How come no one went to investigate the power source of the Destiny?

More importantly did Rush know?

We think he did.

Know with full solar power again in the Destiny doesn’t that mean the ship’s stargate has enough power to dial Earth?

It makes sense the Destiny can self-replenish its own power, after all the ship has been flying for millions of years. It makes no sense that no one asked the question about what powers Destiny before.
