If this all sounds very serious, well, these folks have a lot to be serious about. Very early on, the "Icarus Base" is under alien attack, forcing military and civilian personnel alike to escape through the stargate. They end up aboard Destiny, a massive ship that's millions of years old and was once the property of the omniscient master race known as the Ancients. Not only do our characters barely know how to operate the ship, they also have no idea where they are, except that it's billions of light-years from Earth. It's the responsibility of the two main men, Col. Everett Young (Justin Louis) and scientist Dr. Nicholas Rush (Robert Carlyle), to figure out how to get everyone home safely, a task that dominates the series' overall arc. That dicey proposition is complicated considerably by ceaseless internecine conflict on the ship, much of it between soldiers and civilians (typified by Young and Rush, both of whom are self-righteous, utterly humorless, and not especially likable). Much of the action takes place on Destiny, but there are occasional excursions to various planets in search of water and other supplies; there are also trips to Earth made possible by magical "communication stones" that allow users to exchange bodies with folks on the other end. As is the case with many new programs, SGU takes a while to hit its stride, but when that happens about a third of the way into the season, the results are often quite exciting; SGU may not be as much fun as the earlier shows, but it's still well written and entertaining, with excellent production values, good special effects, and some two hours' worth of bonus material. --Sam Graham
So Beautiful to look at. Stargates reaction to Battlestar look and feel. Too bad they focused too much on the people stuff and not enough on the Sci FI. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Mike

Good show, second season is arguably even better. Too bad it was cut short. As a Stargate series, it deserved a longer shot. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Matt L.
It is unfortunate this series didn't take off. Too many die hard Stargate fans dismissed the series, and I don't know why. Read morePublished 7 days ago by M. Simpson

I like some of episodes. The problem is that it is character driven and not plot driven. Most of the characters are not like able. I like rush young and eli. Most of the conversion are not interesting. The writers some are good make interesting events feel trivial and focus to much on trivial. I... Read More

|Full season cheaper than half season?!?!?!||
In addition, Netflix has really expanded their instant viewing selection (I remember when it was a joke containing movies no one would ever want to watch). This now includes all of SG-1 (including the two follow-up tv movies), all of Atlantis and the first season of Universe. It's the wave of the... Read More
