SGU writers : watch Supernatural


A show that’s based on character development is nothing new. And personally I think it was a good angle. But I feel the the writers of SGU went about the wrong way. I think that the should should take some pointers from Eric Kripke from Supernatural.

I’m sure some of you are wondering: Supernatural?

Well it’s simple. I believe that character development doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice action. And I think Supernatural is a fine example of how one should balance character growth and action. We’ve seen Sam and Dean start off as a player/soldier and his smart sensitive bro and watched them them changed into a sensitive/ hurt man and his semi evil/confused bro. And it was an amazing ride. One filled with drama, suspense, love, action and comedy. Proof it can be done.

So my advice for the writers of SGU. If you do get a second season please , please get your act together. We know the Destiny is falling apart, we know their not suppose to there. People are complex and you've proven your point. Now give us the action we need so you can justify the drama.

I completly agree supernatural has kept me hooked from the first season till now, with stargate Universe i could quite happily miss episodes and then not watch again. The thing with supernatural and the previous stargates (in my opinion) is that they don't streach out things that don't need to be they are you need to know this so i'll give a ten minute slot not a whole 40 minute episode. As Universe is doing now
I think a simular thing is happening in shows like Bones or even Glee not only supernatural. So how come these writers can get it right but the writers of Universe can't they have two fantastic stargates preveous why get this one wrong???

I love Supernatural and I agree on the fact that they've created a great balance between action and character development. But I feel people are hating on SGU for the wrong reasons. This show is supposed to represent what would happen if people were really stuck on a foreign ancient ship and I think that's what we're seeing. There would be lots of talk and fear and trying to figure each other out and trust issues, etc. I think it's silly to think that they're supposed to encounter an alien or jump through the stagate every episode since it seems that time is passing more on a day-to day basis whereas with SG1/Atlantis it felt more like days or weeks in between episodes. They're floating through space several billion lightyears from their own galaxy and can only jump through the stargate when the ship gets close to a planet. And is it not impossible to conceive that if people really were stuck in their position that they might not encounter a planet for weeks? I'm not saying they shouldn't add a little more action, but I like that it's not as fluffy as previous SG shows (though I love them too) and that what is going on in SGU is more likely what would be happening in reality.
