I’ve been re-watching season 1 of SGU for the past 2 days. I can’t believe I use to hate Rush. Well I know why I disliked him in the beginning. Season 2 is when I really started to like his character. haha.
Ok I added the links you guys sent me to the page. So be sure to check out those blogs. If you find any other Stargate blogs, let me know & I will add them to the list.
Contest! I am thinking of doing a contest. One of those “reblog & follow this blog to win” type post. I have an extra unopen copy of the original Stargate movie with extra features. Might use that as the prize for the contest. If the contest goes well. I will probably do a contest every other month or every month. Depending on how the first contest goes.
I added the section to my blog of other Stargate blogs to check out. If you have anymore please link me. I’ll add them to the list. Make sure the blogs you link me to post ONLY Stargate related content. Thank you.
I really wanted to like SGU. The first few episodes were really good, but then I guess my attention span died or something. I just... got bored with the whole "still stuck on a ship" thing. I mean the sets were beautiful, but even after half of the first season there just wasn't enough variety to hold my interest.
I really did want to like it, though. :(
At least you gave it a chance. That’s more than what most Stargate fans did. Not speaking for everyone.. but I know most made up their mind on SGU without giving it a chance. You should check out season 2. It’s definitely worth a watch. I am surprised & proud of the 2nd half of season 2 so far.
Is there some kind of protest against SGU cancellation going on? Maybe we can start sending masses of tennis balls painted like Kino to Syfy or something...
Hahaha nifty idea. But unfortunately even with protesting. It won’t change MGM’s mind to renewing SGU for another season, or a movie. In the end it’s all up to them to renew it or another network possibly picks up the show. I am still hoping for a future for the Stargate franchise.. so lets all keep our fingers crossed.
‘Epilogue’ ratings show improvement for SGU, but Sanctuary suffers..
Yesterday’s new episode ofStargate Universe picked up significantly in the ratings, with more than 1 million viewers tuning in to “Epilogue” — perhaps helped by SGU‘s new pairing withSanctuary, starring former SG-1actress Amanda Tapping. ButSanctuary‘s move from Friday to Monday dealt a major blow to its own ratings.
“Epilogue” drew an estimated1.092 million viewers to Syfy at 9 p.m. on Monday night (“Live + Same Day”), up 27 percent from the previous week.
Sanctuary didn’t fare so well at 10 p.m., with just 868,000 viewers. That’s comparable to SGU‘s numbers at 9 and 10 o’clock this spring, but a far cry (39 percent, to be exact) from what Sanctuary was doing on Friday nights just three days earlier.
Last nights episode of SGU was AMAZING. Yet again another reminder every time I watch SGU I know it’s getting closer to the end & then.. no more. This episode definitely had me on the edge of my seat. I don’t want to spoil it.. but all I can say is WOW. Their descendants advancing as far as they did in under 2000 years? Just awesome. This episode might possibly be my favorite episode from SGU.

Fuck that I love SGU, it's a really great show. It brings something new to the franchise but it also solidifies the canon of the whole thing. The character writing is some of the best I've ever seen. I'm really sad it got cancelled.
Exactly! The acting in my opinion is some of the best acting I’ve seen on television. SGU was different but stood true to the Stargate name. Like I said before. Lets hope for the best.
SGU is awesome. I hate the fact that some people won't even give it a chance!
I appreciate those who did give it a chance. Some things are just not for everyone. But for those stubborn fans who refuse to watch it just because it’s not SG-1 or SGA..they make up their minds without giving it a shot. What’s done is done. All we can do now is hope for the best for the Stargate franchise.
SGU had a lot of fans. To the powers that be an 800,000 viewer rating average wasn’t enough to keep the SGU story going for a 3rd season.. But 800,000+ people IS A LOT OF PEOPLE.. there’s no denying that. That’s a lot of people. So a lot of us were expecting a movie or another season or 2. So just because you think SGU sucks… doesn’t mean a shit load of other people didn’t like it. Unlike many people who play favorites.. I actually enjoyed each of the series. They all brought something to the table in a unique but different way. It was all good to me.
With all that said.. this day sucks. There will be NO MORE Stargate on the air or movies in production after the remaining episodes of SGU airs. I am not sure for how long. I hope something good happens to give us fans a little hope.
No SGU continuation & other Stargate movies have been shelved.
This is a sad day. =/
Don’t expect to see Stargate Universe— or any other part of the franchise — come blazing back on television or DVD. At least not in the near future.
Stargate writer, executive producer and mastermind Brad Wright took the stage earlier today at Creation Entertainment’sOfficial Stargate Convention in Vancouver, British Columbia and proceeded to update and clear the air on the fate of the latest series, Stargate Universe.
“We just recently found out that the SGU movie is not going to happen,” Wright said during his stage panel today. “It took too long. We just couldn’t get it together in time, and the window has closed. It’s actually sad for me, because after 17 years, I’m cleaning out my desk tomorrow morning.”
The capacity crowd at the Metrotown Hilton in Burnaby listened in silence, with some attendees visibly in tears, as Wright waxed reminiscently on the almost two decades worth of the franchise he’s had a hand in creating.
“It was a great ride and I felt really good about [SGU] and aboutStargate in general,” Wright continued. “When something’s been a part of your life for 15 years, it kind of takes you over.”
“There are moments I’m so proud of and remember with fondness. I really enjoyed the last day of shooting ‘Unending’ [SG-1's series finale]. And I enjoyed every day on the set of Stargate Continuum. I’m very paternal and I love watching people become great at their jobs. I’m so proud of the pier scene [in Atlantis' Season Five episode 'The Shrine']. Joe [Flanigan] was so powerful in those scenes.”
Wright also confirmed that the proposed Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis movies have been permanently shelved, along with another movie idea he had been trying to get a greenlight on, which would have combined and involved cast members of all three series. Scripts for the first two of those projects, tentatively titled Stargate: Revolution andStargate: Extinction (respectively), were completed well over a year ago.
What does this news mean for the future of the Stargate brand and the franchise? In the short-term, there are no plans to begin production on anything Stargate-related. But it’s a situation Wright doesn’t see as final — even if he’s not a part of it.
“It’s a franchise. Stargate is not over,” he said. “Somebody smart from MGM is going to figure it out, and something will happen.” Wright said, adding that he’s embracing the chance and prospect of writing material that isn’t Stargate related, and will be actively working on other pilots.
