The electrifying series starring Robert Carlyle returns, presenting a whole new set of challenges for the civilians and military personnel stranded in deep space aboard an aging spaceship. As Dr. Rush (Carlyle) races against time to locate a tracking devise hidden somewhere on the Destiny, he also begins to suspect that a mole for the Alliance has infiltrated the group. Confronting the constant demands of their ship, the crew must also face their personal demons time and again in this powerful adventure that also features Lou Diamond Phillips, Michael Shanks, Richard Dean Anderson and Julia Benson.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tolerable episodes in Intolerable packaging July 12, 2010
Format:DVD
As I have adamantly proclaimed before, the 1/2 Season rip-offs absolutely have to stop. I'l explain in detail what I will do to the marketing executives. I will only buy SGU as a complete season box set, or I will wait for both the 1/2 seasons to fall beyond the price point together well below the average full season price for other series. YOU WILL NOT GET THE EXTRA MONEY!

On its own merits SGU is an interesting premise and approach to the setting. I like it well enough and want to see more. But I will NOT support the price gouging tactics of the marketing execs. If that "percieved lack of income" ends up killing the show (which could and should otherwise survive on its own merits) the blame is on them, not the public that refuses to be ripped off.

5.0 out of 5 stars At First I was wary of this show.... August 25, 2010
Format:DVD
The first half of season one was very dark and I thought that it was unrelentingly grim..but I hung in there and all of a sudden this show took off and by the first season cliffhanger I was a true fan. The writers have gone in to a totally different direction. The show seems much more character-driven and it's fascinating to watch the development. What you have to remember about this particular Stargate is that this time around you have a very large civilian population involved (in addition to the military) and they are not trained or prepared for what they have to face in this particular series. It makes for some very interesting conflicts between the military and civilian population as both learn that give and take is absolutely imperative if they want to survive.
I do have to concur with everyone else about splitting the season as two different units, though. That is for the birds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep An Open Mind! June 20, 2010
Format:Blu-ray
This is a series that you are going to love or hate. I am not here to persuade you one way or another. This is obviously just my opinion and nothing more and nothing less.

On one end, purist of the SG franchise, at least from my experience, usually end up disliking the show because it is not a fun filled action sci-fi show. It does not have the humour or the fast pace, so the obvious change is what is making them trip over their own feet. They talk about they do not know how to write a show, but the show has been having the same writers since sg-1. So the question I ask is, you loved them before, why dislike them now?

On the other end, it does have drama. Sci-fi to me is not always about goofiness cliche's, wild aliens and big bangs of fire. It is about the actions between people with a hint of possibilites.
This is where Star Trek took its cue from. Roddenberry realized that there has to be some potential realism to make sci-fi believable and the cool gadgets and other what nots made us believe that these things are possible futures.

I love SG-1 and SG-A, both always have drawn me in and made me believe and I do love the camaraderie between the cast. This series takes it a step up and show that not every one will get along. There is a deeper torture between the cast and a sense of jealousy and hatred. It is almost a cast of sins and inner demons. Regrets and low self esteem.

I read comments that each episode is so different from the last. Well is each day that goes on with your life exactly the same as yesterday? No, I think not.

Others say its a BSG rip off. Somewhat, but even BSG wasn't an original idea and a rip off off the original. Yeah yeah yeah, a re-imagining of the show. Still not original I say.

1.0 out of 5 stars 1/2 season is a Hollywood Ripoff July 28, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am a long time fan of Stargate and own all the DVD sets which were all released as full season sets.Hollywood likes to rear its greedy head as to how the Internet is full of piracy,blah blah blah but I see them as the real pirates.They have ripped us fans off in many ways.This is just one of them that is forcing fans to buy 1/2 seasons which costs more for us consumers and may even take up more of our shelf space.I for one am sick of greedy corporations and there are many of them in our world.That is why I only gave this one star.And as much as it hurts I am buying both of these sets used not new.
hollywood stop splitting shows into 2 or I for one will never buy them new.

Now onto the show:
This new SGU is definately not like SG1 or SGA and I do enjoy the show but not as much as the older shows.To much drama not enough good action and humor.Maybe season 2 will bring a change.
I am sticking with the show and not jumping ship.I do enjoy the Stargate idea and love the going thru the gate to new and exciting places.Hope we gate more in season 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Stargate Saga June 4, 2010
Format:DVD
I have been a fan of the Stargate saga since the movie "Stargate" was released in theaters. Although, for me at least, it was difficult to get into the new storyline with each Stargate storyline, it was still a familiar theme. SG:U is altogether different, at least for now.

SG:1 and SG:Atlantis dealt with the stargate as the center of the storyline universe; Stargate:Universe does not. SG:U focuses more on the characters, trapped within an Ancient-designed ship and hurtling into the farthest celestial territory imaginable. This is where SG:U shines. Unlike previous storylines, they can't just step back into the stargate and return home. In fact, it is quite a challenge for the characters to just survive on this aging vessel that tries to kill its passengers with each lightyear traveled.

I don't really care why the studios want to release SG:U in half season increments. I'm just glad they do it, since I can get more episodes on my shelf to review at my leisure in a shorter amount of time.

I loved SG:U 1.0 and am eagerly awaiting the arrival of 1.5. July can't come soon enough!

If you already have season 1, don't even bother. All this DVD has is the last half of season 1. Complete waste of money.

Look, Star Gate had a great run. SG*U was a worthy successor to SG*1 & Atlantis. However, This 1.5 is not extra episodes! It's just a repeat of the end of season one. Read more

SciFi doesn't care about its viewers (sorry its SyFy)
Syfy doesn't make any money off these boxsets, It's MGM you should address your complaints too.
