I do have to concur with everyone else about splitting the season as two different units, though. That is for the birds.
1.The standard definition SGU: The "Complete First Season" has 6 DVDs (19 episodes) - all labeled "Season 1" .
2. The Blue Ray SGU: the "Complete First Season" has 5 DVDs (same19 episodes); the first two DVDs are labeled "Season 1: and the other three DVDs are labeled "Season 1.5"!!
3. The Blue Ray SGU: "Stargate Universe 1.5" has 3 DVDs with the same episodes as "last three DVDs of "BOTH" the "standard definition" & Blue Ray versions of "The Complete First Season".!!
4.This "DUPLICATION" is unacceptable'
5. And where is the Blue Ray version of "SGU: Stargate Universe - the Complete Final Season???
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.
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.Read more ›
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.
