Well it was certainly a good start to the new Stargate series, not sure if SG-1 or Stargate Atlantis were ever filmed in HD, but watching SGU in HD shows some seriously amazing visuals.

Story wise it shows promise, I guess we’ve been a bit spoilt by the previous series ships with beaming technology and hyperdrive, so the “Destiny”, although beautiful is a bit on the clapped out side.

One thing I’m not sure of at this point is how many people made it onto the ship, seemed like quite a few, but not as many as there was on the base..?

Overall it held up pretty well with the previous series, though, a gate you can’t dial into? Where did this come from, who modified it? Another naquardria enriched planet? I thought naquadria was artificially formed, so who did this? Who tipped off the Lucian Alliance? (my money’s on Rush), but why would they attack in the first place? The General Hamond has Asgard weapons, why didn’t it just blow away the alliance ships, they shouldn’t have had a chance?

Air certainly leaves a lot of unanswered questions, I guess this is the main thing I don’t like about the new format..

Character wise, love Eli, like Rush can sort of relate to both of them, kinda like Chloe, not sure on the rest yet.


Stargate Universe, in my opinion

November 1, 2009

Well it’s been a few weeks now since the latest evolution of the Stargate series began and after David Blue pointed out Joseph Mallozi’s latest blog post, although a good read, I was a little saddened by it and felt the need to start my own blog and give my own “opinion”.

Now I consider myself a fan, a serious fan, seen the film, series, TV movies many times each, but not an ‘Uber’ fan, I don’t do dress up, conventions or house redecorating to match SG sets, and I can certainly distinguish characters from actors, plus I respect the production and FX teams for the fabulous work the do.

Also I’m not just an SG fan, there’s a lot of other SciFi shows I like, however SG is top of the list in the current seasons lineup.

Now sure, I kinda doubt anyone’s really going to read this, but at least it makes me feel better.. 😉
