So Far (small soilers at the end)

Really people? Are you that dissatisfied of how this show is progressing? You want a Stargate show like the previous. Joking all the time and no no threat we cant solve. Get over it, I'm happy they showed up to a ship that is failing and have to solve all the problems. Gives you time to understand the Ancients technology.


And the people complaining about how this is a rip off of Battlestar and Star Trek shows, get over it. Everyone complained when Richard Dean Anderson left the show and they brought in Ben Browder and Claudia Black from Farscape. Yet the last couple of seasons of Stargate SG1 were amazing. So give it time, you cant expect them to have everything perfect right form the get-go. The characters are developing at a good pace. You will have multiple arcs showing their past and how they will grow form this experience.


Flying through the star to regain power was interesting. It's a different power source then we've seen before. You have to admit this ship has so many safety protocols to ensure the safety of the mission is a testament to the Ancients thinking far ahead. Like Eli putting his hand into the gate to make sure it didn't close. Or Rush telling it they needed to resupply air.


So all and all its getting their. I expect by the end of the season a lot of people will be happy with show. And if not, stop watching it. I'm wondering if they will add more people form other planets and get their classic alien teammate.






**Spoiler**


Someone on the ship will be assisting the Lucian Alliance try to take it over and board. So the origional attack on the planet holding the Stargate to the ship was not a fluke. Since they were so close i will make the guess someone called them to take over the base. Now how they reach the ship is a mystery at this point. Can't wait to see it unfold.

I Have to agree with you, I am sick with all the moaning and comparing with other shows. This is nothing like BSG or Star trek Voyager. For goodness sake the first few episodes of SG1 and Atlantis were a little weak but as the actors got into their characters things improved. If you don't like it don't watch it.

Oh please. This is the weakest show in any galaxy. Remember the good ol' days when there was a question of self sacrifice everyone on the team would volunteer to stay behind? In this show every one is bickering trying to stay alive instead of dieing honorably.
Even if it is a little far fetched to you people with sad lives and no sense of honor for everyone to be self sacrificing we want to watch heroes not zeroes. This show is full of zeroes and fail. Out of all of the people on that ship there are probably 2 that are worth a damn. How the hell did all these worthless people get on a top secret mission off world.
In SG1 the Air Force loved the show. They have got to hate this one. It is not a question of a more interesting darker side. The writers have sold out to an emo generation that think honor is a roll you get on for doing well in school, and "totally conformist and uncool".
I want to see kick ass characters facing insurmountable odds trying to do the right thing. If I wanted to see a love triangle and sexual tension between "math boy" and some chick that just rolled off another dude I would watch Gossip Girl or, the bane of all superman fans, Smallville. This Dawson's Creek meets Stargate has got to go.
I love the Stargate franchise, and I hope they get this failboat off the rocks.

dork, they didnt get signed up for this mission, it was a fluke, the base was getting blasted by the lucian alliance and the entire planet was going to blow up. it was either get to the ship now or never see it again. they didnt know it was unable to redial earth.
and so what the characters are just developing, you cant expect them to have it spot on the moment the show kicks off, just like the previous one they needed time to grow. example: look at daniel jackson, he was a weak nerdy researcher, but at the end of the series he had been an ancient, a ori priest,and ended up being a major badass
plus they specifically said this stargate would be nothing like the other too, more drama and suspense. So either watch it and enjoy, or shut up about it.

Dork, your basicly complaining about the fact that these are realistic characters.
I'm a big stargate fan, but all in all they have always been a little cheap. Overacting characters, alot of repetition, always the same 'hard moral choices', always the same heroics. Watching SG universe feels more like watching a movie, not some cheap 'every episode another story' tv series.
Everything you talk about is, to me, cheap television."I want to see kick ass characters facing insurmountable odds trying to do the right thing. ". Really? Havent we seen that shit enough already? go watch some '90s action movies with guys on steroids.
And what the hell do you know about honour? you have been brought up on film and television that always resolves around heroes who do the impossible. But in real life, your just some guy who'd act a looot less heroic if you were put in a situation like the characters in SG universe
The human mind and body is a frail thing. You'd probably go into shock, get psychosis or have a nervous breakdown, just like Rush, if you were put in that situation.
I understand that film is about heroes among normal men. This dates back from the Greek Tragedy, which basicly resolves around a hero who faces nearly unstopable powers without fear. He gets put through a great deal of trials, but he keeps his head high until the end (but in tragedy is always doomed too fail)...In basic psychology this means it resolves around 'making the viewer feel better about themselves', which is an illusion.
Date 2009 i'd hope the psychology behind making a series or film reaches alot deeper than that simple stereotype. And the past stargate stories had too much of this stereotyping. So i'm very content with the new series, and no matter how much I loved SG atlantis, i see this arc as an upgrade to the previous ones.
Good thing the evolution of film and series isn't up to you, or we would still be stuck in the early '90's watching the same stereotype stories and morals over and over again.

dork, you said"In SG1 the Air Force loved the show. They have got to hate this one. It is not a question of a more interesting darker side. The writers have sold out to an emo generation that think honor is a roll you get on for doing well in school, and "totally conformist and uncool"."
Which I think is hilarious, how old are you? Sold out to an emo generation? I dont even know what that means but I know that every generation is more or less the same as the last. In the words of Rush I say, When you are all growed up you will know that what your saying has nothing to do with Stargate and Everything to do with your "emo" issues. Its a tv show get over it.
