Well that was a nice entrance into the new Stargate show, wasn't it?
Even though I'm still in the probing mode and not yet fully committed to an opinion, I think the third episode really gave us viewers something to chew on.
Rush seems to be a believable riddle with some quite unlikeable qualities. Still, I find the agressiveness of Sgt. Greer towards him somewhat over the top.
Generally the good doctor seems to be extremly unpopular with everyone that knows him for some time. I look forward to being given clues as to the reason of this - his ruthless scientific demeanour can't be the only source for this antipathy, I think.
The revelations about Lt. Scott I found interestingly creative but overall not that exciting; but then, I'm always partial towards the geeks and a little dismissive towards the muscle - as long as he's not called O'Neill (well, muscle way back...).
Besides the constantly diverse Rush the most interesting character developement so far was shown by Eli in this third episode.
Charmingly uninformed and childish at points ("I have a gun!") I found it interesting to watch him showing a) some kind of loyalty towards Rush or at least believe in his abilities and b) some backbone.
Also a nice touch was the willingness of Cl. Telford to wear down Cl. Youngs body without apparent regard for the consequences.
That's my recapture of my highlights of the "new guys" of SGU - what do you think?
P.S. Is it just me or is the musical intro somewhat lame?
