SGU is The Rolls Royce of All Stargates
on November 14, 2015
This is the best of STARGATE series of them all. Intelligent, witty, deep and creative. The casting was perfection and acting outstanding. Only two seasons left us fans disappointed. There were many years to explore the characters and galactic adventures.
I have tried watching all other Stargate series but was left with corny dialog, weak storylines, superficial characters, mediocre acting and just plain bored but SGU is a whole new level of brilliant writing, acting with deep characters and storylines that kept me up to 5 in the morning needing to watch the next episode on Netflix because it was such a compelling show I couldn't wait to find out what happened next.
This show is not light or fluffy. It takes a psychological look at most of the characters on the ship and creates an emotional attachment to their personal stories that is emotional moving. The character played by Ming Na is most irritating as she is for me in most of her roles on TV but if you can stomach her a little the show is just fantastic.
The final season is pretty much tied up but still left us hanging as to what happens to all the characters and in this they also left a huge opening for the show to be picked up at anytime in the future no matter how much the actors age it could still be logically explained.
I just can't get enough of SGU. I love smart Sci Fi and this is one of them.
I can best compare Stargate SGU to all the other previous Stargate shows to James Bond films. Up until the Daniel Craig era, there were somewhat silly characters, storylines, gadgets and goofey one liners and then when Daniel Craig version of 007 hit theaters, it was a whole new level of intelligent characters, writing and storylines. SGU is the modern day Stargate that rises above and beyond all other Stargates.
