Stargate is an interesting franchise. The first time I saw anything to do about Stargate, I was working out of town, alone, and went to the movie theatre near the hotel. There was nothing worth seeing, but the one named "Stargate" piqued my curiosity, as I hadn't seen any marketing about it and didn't know a thing about what it was about. I saw it, and I loved it. Since then Stargate has had a few TV runs, with Stargate, and Stargate Atlantis. I was "meh" with the Stargate series, but enjoyed Atlantis quite a bit. Probably because of the quirkiness of Rodney McKay. And the remote alien location and starships. Yeah, I'm a sucker for starships. So I guess that's why I'm watching Universe... because it sure doesn't have many redeeming properties. It looks like someone took the whole Battlestar concept and applied it to Stargate, and threw in a bit of the socially awkward kid that saves the day. Kind of like a cross between Wesley Crusher from Star Trek TNG, and Seth from SuperBad. The film style is a direct rip-off from BSG, and they're trying too hard to punch up the political and sexual/relationship side, and in doing so are leaving the elements that made Atlantis so enjoyable for me. Anyway, here it is episode 5, and I'm still watching. And for the record, Syfy is a STUPID FUCKING NAME.
