Did anyone watch Stargate: Universe when it was out a few years ago?

I'm going through them on Netflix as a filler.

The used those communication stones to basically transfer a conscious from one body to another so you're basically walking around in someone else's body. Lesbian chick would haul arse back to her lover in various bodies throughout the show.

It's a good thing there were not any gay character guys on the show. When they switched back, the guy who just returned to his body, would wonder how he caught the herp and why his arse was always sore.

I got through 10 episodes and jsut had to stop. Terrible show.

I seem to recall Lou Diamond Phillips going to town on someone elses wife as a surogate but also in his own body -- just because he could.

You just called out Myth. He will be here soon with a detailed synopsis of the terrible things in the show. He was also a fan of the "rape stones" as he calls them.

Is SG-1 or Atlantis worth watching?

I'm sitting here thinking: They ended SG1 and SGA for this?

Eli is in the friend zone and everyone is fricking the Lieutenant.

I was sad when both of those ended. I loved me some Stargate!

I may just have to rewatch them from the beginning.

SG1 is one of the best Sci fi shows of all time.

It went over so much cool folklore.

SG-1 was really good until the end which is understandable considering how many seasons it was on. But the first 7-8 seasons make for great binge watching on NetFlix. If you end up liking SG-1 Atlantis is worth watching too.

SG1 was great. It dropped a bit when RDA quit the show and they created a new team. Still worth watching even then, but drops off a bit.

Part of the allure of the show is the mix of comedy with drama. There was more humor in a Teal'C eyebrow pop than 2 seasons of SGU.

SG Atlantis carried on that sense of humor with Rodney McKay.

I pretty much liked SGA all the way through. Damn shame the failure of SGU killed the direct to dvd Atlantis movies.

SGU was terrible for too many reasons to mention. That won't stop me from listing several.

7. I think it took most of us almost 2 years to learn the full cast names. Most of the characters were just too boring to try and learn their names.

6. Honestly one of the creepiest ideas is Sci-Fi history. The rape stones were just sick.

5. Terrible acting by permanent angry smirk army guy and most of the cast.

4. It was reported that the show spent more money by a LARGE amount than the other iterations yet this was not seen on the screen. Some argue that Lou Diamond cost a lot but why would that be true? He was a has been. Long long time has been. Simple fact, the producers stole all of the money with their salaries.

It was also reported the money was spent on the set of the ship which they NEVER FRACKING EXPLORED!

3. It was clear the writers had no previous knowledge of the show. I think I even remember reading this. Fracking idiots. I could be wrong about this. It has been a while and my brain has clouded over this traumatic event in my life.

2. The lack of humor. The idiots wanted to copy the darker tone of BSG but what the idiots failed to remember is their was plenty of humor in BSG even with the darker tone. As I said, more humor in a Teal'C eye pop than the ENTIRE two seasons of SGU.

WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING BAD LANGUAGE

1. It's a frickING SHOW ABOUT GATE TRAVEL, yet they did almost ZERO frickING gate travel. When they did travel, the planets were barren, frozen or devoid of life. Life? They only met 4 fricking alien species in 40 episodes.

I don't understand why the didn't just use the same damn idea of SG1. In that series the planets were seeded with slaves. Atlantis, the planets were seeded with human food. In SGU all they had to do was seed the planets with descendants of the original gate builders who chose not to ascend. Boom. How hard was that to do?

Only redeeming feature of SGU.

Same here.

Eli, I guess, was supposed to he the comic relief. However, he was just the geek who was never going to get laid on that ship.

The Senator's daughter, who he should have been fricking, chose the Lt; and big tit solider never got over him.

I assume he was cast as the comic relief but nobody told the writers so his story was just sad.

..even the cripple chick who came to the ship via the stones would rather shack up with a-hole Rush than Eli.

It appears that they tried to make this more about the people and less about exploration than the previous versions.

I keep telling myself that if I ever win the powerball lottery, I'll renew both SG1 and SGA; writing in a part for myself in the process.

You guys have only seen a few episodes. They really continue to screw with Eli's love life.
