Stargate: Universe
I read this forum regularly. Yes, indeed, very regularly. >_>

Ahem, anyway. Stargate: Universe, the gritty, dark, mature, gritty, mature, dark, mature, dark, gritty version of Stargate set on an ancient Ancient ship that's falling apart, and starring Edward James Olm- uhh, Robert Carlyle. Anyone else watched it?

I thought the first three eps were... OK. But not much more than ... OK. It's not quite SG, not quite BSG. It's a kind of bSG, almost. Or maybe not. There aren't many corridor scenes, and the whole set-up is slow, but is probably (hopefully) leading to something good. I just hope it's not all going to be exploring emotions and backgrounds, and fixing bits that are falling off. Because that space setting shouldn't just be for a pretty background. >_>

More on that story later; your thoughts?

1. I hate unnecessary scene shuffling. Now, then, now, then, now, then...
2. I'm glad they avoided the "kill off the older military guy to justify the younger guy taking charge" thing they did in Atlantis.
3. Cool new Gate design.
4. Haven't they learned by now to just beam up the guy instead of convincing them on the ground?
5. Although I liked this "using Earth as the Point of Origin is a puzzle" thing, it begs the question...why can you only dial out from this one planet?
6. Why leap through a Gate when you have no idea what's on the other side? They deserve every single bruise they got.
7. Did everyone have to strap the gear on their backs? What, no MALPs to spare?
8. Kinos are cool.

Episode Five, and they expect us to believe that they're really going to blow up the ship and kill half the regulars? Do they honestly take us for idiots?
