Considerably less hot than usual.

So, Stargate Universe Premiere tonight. Thoughts?

Overall, I thought it was pretty solid. A definite departure from the normal formula of SG1 and ATL, and the whole thing had a distinct Battlestar Galactica vibe to it (which could probably be attributed to the dark lighting, the jerky camera during action scenes and the drum-heavy music....) I found the fat computer nerd very annoying and pretty much a pointless characterm who's method of joining the expedition can only be described as a BIIIG stretch. Also, when did RDA get fat?

But yeah, I'll tune in next week.

Jack's living it up on his general's salary.  Guinness by the truckload will do that.

Also, Shooter McGavin playing a semi-likable character is causing me no small amount of cognitive dissonance.

This show should be titled Battlestargate SGU.  I think it'll be decent as long as they don't overdo the angst and stick to exploration and shooting wave upon wave of Jaffa-equivalent.

I kept my expectations impossibly low, so naturally the show greatly exceeded my expectations, but I still felt somewhat meh about the whole experience. I may just be biased against it because I both fear and hate any form of change, though, so I will stick with it a bit and see if it grows on me.

I 2nd soylentOranges Battlestargate Galactiverse thought, where's the witty banter and human only references that aliens respond to by staring blankly at each other? hmpf

Nix: I said "Hey it's that guy who always plays the asshole", and now I feel like a jerk at the end, WAY TO GUILT ME NEW SG! frown

I didn't feel guilt by it. I didn't even bat an eyelid.

Reasonable ep, feels odd without getting to meet the bad guys (if there are any) in the whole thing. Please don't get all crappy and start talking about "feelings", I'm a Man/Nerdish Geek Dork, I don't have them.

I'm leaving this one for now. Just hasn't peaked my interest enough to want to dedicate to it.
I'll still re-watch SG1 and SGA but they kinda of lost me on this one.

I'm still feeling pretty neutral about this show.  It's had a couple of good moments, but it just doesn't feel like stargate.  The episodes have been decent- but not great- and the whole 'doom and gloom' thing is rapidly getting tired.  
 Maybe the show will get better once they've run out of ways that the ship can kill them.  All I know is my gut says maybe.

edit: whoops.  Sorry everyone that hasn't seen it.  Not that you shouldn't expect stargate spoilers in a stargate thread.

Thanks Soylent, maybe a spoiler tag next time? We're obviously a few eps behind here in the UK.

The episode you describe airs in the UK on Tuesday 27th October.

Please think of those less fortunate souls.

I agree with all you said, btw, I miss the humour of SG1 and Atlantis.

Country of origin rules.  You get to spoil Dr. Who, we get to spoiler Stargate.

I'm watching it, I'm enjoying it but it's not rocking my world.  Chloe is a hobag.  What I think the show's missing is the Jack/McKay.  Eli's trying to fill that role, but it's really not happening just yet.

Hmm. Interesting idea, Nix: If the Tardis landed on the Destiny, which country would it be likely to be shown in first?

Thanks Soylant smile I had more or less guessed that was going to happen at the end of "Darkness".

Nixorbo,

I'd hope not to spoil anything for anyone. I accept it's a chance you take, visiting a Stargate thread, but elsewhere things are marked.

Agree about the lack of a Jack/McKay, I wasn't expecting another SG1/Atalantis clone but SGU is quite a leap in style.

The one thing I do like is the ancient ship, I love the nod towards the "Millennium Falcon"

So far..

Greer - "amma hit chew wit ma stereotype, foo"
All this character needs is a speech about how much he liked fried chicken back home and it'll be perfect.

Chloe - "that whiny emo girl"

Eli - Interesting character idea.. the show's primary audience will be chubby male dorks in their 20's so it makes sense to throw one in there.
Poor dude is going to be consigned to years of cuddles and whining from Chloe while remaining the only person on the ship she hasn't slept with (girls included, probably).

Rush - I like. His tendency to be extremely violent at the slightest provocation is very Scottish. smile

God Boy - forgot his name. Had enough god after slogging through BSG, really, really hated the bit where his dad appeared in a vision and said "God has a plan for us"... wanted to throw something at the TV.

Young - Growls a lot. Good character though, seems genuinely miserable about the fact that he's stuck with a bunch of retards.. no wonder he's so eager to commit suicide at any excuse.

Random Lesbos - Oh look, a show with lesbians in it. That's something you don't see very often these days.

I'm mainly continuing to watch this show on the grounds of "there's bugger all else on".

Another season of Atlantis would have been way, way more entertaining. I don't like it when sci-fi takes itself too seriously unless it can offer me a significant amount of cool-looking spaceship battles to compensate.

Wish they'd put some lights on, the show is physically not very easy to watch when it's mostly a dark-greyish blur. The production and film language is bad.. they can't pull off the BSG style and should stop jump-cutting once every 1.7 seconds.

Basil: Trust me, it was no spoiler. As soylent said, it was bloody obvious what was happening just from the recap, before the new episode itself even started. I spent the whole episode asking "How freaking stupid is everyone on this ship?!"

Well, let's see, considering that the best and brightest that the crew has to offer seems to consist of a stereotype black guy, an emo-slut, stereotype military officers, and an MIT drop out that's too distracted by emo-slut to think straight, I'd say pretty stupid.  Rush must have known that the ship was going to survive though; otherwise, he's the dumbest genius of all time.

I have very low standards and will watch any old junk.

Check out "Defying Gravity", my god it's shit!

Back on topic, what's happened to Peter DeLuise, I always enjoyed his episodes but there's none of his trademark humour in the episodes he's directed so far.

Fuck you. DG was a decent attempt to raise the profile of space science. It just happened to have a terrible premise. They did pretty well with what they had.

Only at episode 3 in the UK, but already we've had an attempted suicide after being scrubbed from the mission, and a 300ft safety tether but I guess they can explain all this away with the mysyerious entity in cargo pod 4.

Science, pah! Give me "The Right Stuff", "Apollo 13" or "From the Earth to the Moon" any time.

Show has definitely started off slow...

But, on the upside, I finally laughed at a joke on the show, specifically when Eli introduced himself as Philip Fry to his mom in the most recent episode.
