Most Sci-fi shows are about aliens, people running around shooting stuff, and the threat of the universe exploding or something like that. Stargate: Universe is kinda like that, only less shooting and more soap opera elements. It’s a good show, don’t get me wrong, but I feel like it’s WAAAY too slow and dramatic.
“Oh noes! Is Rush telling the TRUTH? Are we all doomed??! Can we get back home?”
I find that everybody has been quite idiotic at this point, and I can’t help thinking that everything they’ve done so far has ALREADY made its way into every other Science Fiction show.
I myself really like Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis, which were pretty campy themselves, but SGU tries its best to be serious and very non-campy, but fails.
So far, SGU is rather mediocre, but we shall see how this goes.
