SGU was not everyone's cup of tea. Regardless, it was good TV. Imaginative, thought-provoking, different. And in current SyFy tradition, now cancelled.
So as a PSA, here's a short summation of how I see SysFy and its relationship to the channels' shows' fan bases -
"Battlestar Galactica" - under pressure throughout and barely makes it to the end; fans screwed because we could never be sure we would get a complete story. "Caprica" - brilliant - cancelled before it can get out of the starting blocks; again, fans screwed. "Stargate Atlantis" - cancelled before the envisioned end; fans screwed. "Stargate Universe" - really on the way up and destroyed by the network before it could get going; fans screwed.
"Firefly" not picked up by SyFy; fan base established and ready to support SyFy. Nope - fans screwed. "Defying Gravity" - hung out to dry by ABC leaving an amazed and distraught audience; fan base established and ready to support SyFy. Nope - fans screwed - not picked up by SyFy (which it probably could have had for a song).
Don't be surprised when "Eureka," "Warehouse 13," and "Haven" get the boot (or become ridiculous parodies of their earlier selves. For instance, "Sanctuary"). Fans - get ready to be screwed.
Instead, what does the channel that promotes itself as the imagination channel give us?Read more ›
From "Stargate SG-1' to the animated series "Stargate Infinity" and then "Stargate Atlantis", here we are with the final season of "Stargate Universe", a series that met with fans who were split on whether they enjoyed or disliked the series. Unfortunately, for this series which began in 2009, there was no renewal for a third season and thus the second season ended with a cliffhanger, just when the series had made some major changes and had gotten better.
Should "Stargate Universe" had a chance to prove itself? Afterall, even the popular syndicated series "Star Trek: The Next Generation" had its haters and also didn't do well initially in the ratings, but given the chance to make the series better, it became one of the best "Star Trek" spinoff. So, I ask the question again, did SG-U deserve to be cancelled?
I'm sure that this will be a debate in which these split fans will continue to have varying opinions but the fact is, "Stargate" is over and in April 2011, "Stargate" producer announced that any plans for continuation of "Stargate" have been cancelled and that he had officially packed his desk. 17 years of "Stargate" on television and it looks as if this was the final nail on the popular military sci-fi franchise... Or is it?
Nevertheless, I have been watching Brad Wright and Robert C. Cooper's series and I admit that the first season was OK but the second season was even better.Read more ›
I knew Syfy started to go downhill when it changed from "SciFi" to "ScyFy", started canceling good shows, showing horrendous "C" flicks, and later added shows like wrestling. I hope another company creates a science-fiction channel and promotes quality shows as well as staying true to fans/customers.
SGU was coming into its own, just needed time...
Don't pull the plug. Give us more of THIS kind of programming and I'm willing to bet that you could again earn an audience faithful to the StarGate franchise.
