…Just another white boy with a blog about geeking out and living life.
I find it really annoying that so many people have verbally attacked and bad-mouthed the cast and crew of Stargate Universe over the content of the show to date.
We have seen 2 sex scenes so far, in 6 episodes which I’m sure is less than other shows on TV at the moment in the US or the UK. We all know the stories of the cancellations and the rushed finales of SG1 & SGA, but now we have aStargate offering with a fresh outlook and a different setting, any parallels between previous Sci-Fi ventures need to made very carefully because this isn’t Star Trek Voyager, it is too gritty and too human-centric for that, it is not a rehash of Battlestar Galactica because they are NOT in control of the spaceship they are on and there exists a rich history of technology and mythology that has become the foundation of Stargate Universe and what we have is the Stargate Universe in it’s literal RAW state. Technology older than seen before, situations more dire and needs more immediate than presented before.
This is a volume of Stargate wherein the story is told by characters through dialog and expression, rather than explosions and brute force or deciding the fate of millions at the toss of a coin or whimsical fancy. Stargate Universe is about survival, it is about turning the tables on the whole Military Superiority Complex and suggesting that brains over braun is needed if they’re ever going to get home.
Trolls will always be trolls, and that is why the fans of the show must be LOUDER and more prominent than the nay-sayers and inconsiderate few who would ruin it for the rest of us…But, we can’t have THAT now CAN we?
