Format: DVD
Watching the first episode of this show, I was groaning constantly. It seemed that someone had sat down and decided to merge two of the most popular science fiction shows of the decade (LOST and BATTLESTAR GALACTICA) into one expensive-looking series. I mean, it had all the cliches. You've got the pretty girl who pretty much has the words "love triangle" tattooed across her forehead, the awkward boy genius, the Adama-like commander, the Baltar-like scientist, and a goal of returning to Earth from someplace far away.

Oh, and there were flashbacks. Sure, the action was cool, but it mostly looked like the visual effects artists of BSG had found new jobs.

I worked my way past the two part pilot and into what the main concept of the series would be. You have an Ancient ship called "Destiny" flying somewhere in another galaxy, and a group of soldiers and civilians are effectively trapped aboard it. They have very little knowledge of what makes the ship tick or what its purpose even is; they can't even figure out how to turn it around or make it do simple things.

Once I had given this premise a chance to settle, I continued on just to see if the writers would drop the ball. They didn't. They took that ball and ran with it to places that I still find myself trying to make sense of. I'm bewildered, frustrated, and angry at everyone on Destiny. And I'm loving every single second of it.

What you have is a spacebound mystery that leaves you largely in the dark (LOST) on a ship where its crew just wants to go home (BATTLESTAR GALACTICA or STAR TREK: VOYAGER). The concept seems derivative, largely because it is, but once this series found its footing all bets were off. You stop caring about what Destiny really is, where its going, and why.

Let me begin to say that if you are a fan of the other two Stargate series and expect action adventure science fiction pulp with witty dialog and alien villains aplenty then you will not find this in this series. Stargate Universe is a drama series who happens to be placed on a spaceship, there is little which is similar to other Stargate products in this. To me it seams like the makers of Stargate saw how well Battlestar Galactica did and decided to try to jump on that bandwagon and they have done so with varying degree of luck.

The first few episodes for Stargate Universe is horrible, they are long drawn and boring with most of the three episode pilot being about trying to get limestone so they could get the CO2 scrubbers to start working again, if it had not been for having paid good money for the DVD set I would have stopped watching here, however luckily I stuck with the show as it do pick up further into the season. Now for those of you who might not know what Stargate Universe is about, the series follows a group of people who have been working on how to use the ninth chevron of the Stargate, unfortunately they end up stuck on the other side, the ninth chevron leading to the run down, million years old space ship Destiny which travels through faraway galaxies on an unknown mission. Now the group of random survivors have to try to survive with limited resources on board the ship while trying to find a way home. Every now and then the ship stops allowing the survivors to gate to various planets in search of supplies and other things they might need. Now this sound exiting enough, however 90 percent of the storyline is drama, there are love affairs, attempted murders, pregnancies, infidelity, betrayals and power struggles. In fact this is a space soap opera.

With "Battlestar Galactica" all wrapped-up, I was hurting for more hard core sci-fi! "Caprica" filled that gap until the season ended. Then to my surprise a new Stargate adopted the hardcore egde! I know that some people will hate this but I cant get enough. SGU starts out a bit slow and I think that's great.

Early on the newly formed crew is desperately trying to find out where they are and what the hell happened! They learn that they're on a ship called Destiny very far away from earth. They must also find basic recources for survival but most of these people aren't trained SG military officers. Naturally lines are drawn and alliances are made. And like BSG and Caprica, no mercy is shown. There are military men and women with guns and more guns and there are civillians. They have no guns. Guess what happens when critcal life and death descisions need to be made and one side has guns and the other does not? Yeah - It gets ugly.

As time goes on the crew finds a new star and planet that wasn't originally there back in the day. Some of the crew decide to stick around because they think who ever created the system will help them get back to earth! Really? Mabey these super-intelligent beings dont want filthy humans pissing on their brand new planet. Time will tell!...

I love this kind of Ultra hardcore sci-fi. Im glad to see that the Stargate franchise went in this direction and I cant wait for season 2. Wether you like sci-fi or not this show is a great buy. It's the kind of show that's actually genre bending! Is it really sci-fi or is it drama? I had to ask myself that question about BSG. What do you think?

UPDATE:
The special features are top notch! It's all in HD and well put together.
