Stargate Universe

I looked forward to this Friday and the new Stargate series premier for several months.
What a HUGE disappointment.

Gone is the comraderie, team work, loyalty, common purpose, humor and positive storyline present in over 10 years of the series franchise.

It is replaced with a putrid show about people arguing, bickering, stabbing each other in the back and basically being a typical reality tv show.

The new Battlestar Galactica series was done much the same way. Instead of telling a story, advancing a plotline or being entertaining,,,, they developed characters. They'd spend a whole series episode, a full hour telling a story which should have taken only a few minutes to tell and be part of larger more entertaining story.

They're banking on people choosing arguing, bitchy people over a real story and real entertainment.

So very sad to see this good tv series ruined this way.

Will I still watch? Probably. I'll record on DVR and fastforward thru the endless hours of BS to see where the story goes.

Very sad....

I agree, its slow pace also makes it booring to watch. I dont think this one will survive its first season..
