    Tell me it ain't so! One of the refreshing things about the Stargate shows was that they featured good camera work.

    Thank God we have a bunch of other channels for the naysayers!

    I think it's an exellent show. I've watched the first episode more than once and find it to be first class.

    Y'all go on and watch CSI and leave SG:U to us dark and depressed gruppies.

    Oh my! Seven-of-Nine ... now there's an uplifting thought. :D

    Wow was this bad. Horrible. And I'm a huge Stargate fan, have all of SG1 on DVD, loved Atlantis as well. This was just bad.

    Personally, I think this series has some promise. I'm willing to give it some time to develop a bit more. I'm also a huge fan of Voyager........:D

    I Felt the same way.
    The characters are a mess, it's hard to imagine that this group of crew members being able to do much with the ship other than argue. I also hated the fact that it took a whole two our episode to essentialy get nothing done.
    On a positive note it was nice to see Sam again and OMG has Jack gotten Puffy!!! Even with the Camera 10 feet away he was a puffer.

    I Loved Voyager also. I liked DS9 even more because it was Dark and unpredictable.

    Kind of feel sorry for her. No matter what she does, we always recognize her as Seven of Nine. Kinda how Captain Video killed his career. Without the body, of course. :lol:

    And "Hawk" was in it. Yet another actor that had an unforgettable role and will be stuck with it. I saw him in the Atlanta airport one day and he is really impressive. Surrounded by a crowd of people and he stood out clearly.

    He lives in NJ, next door to a guy I used to work with.

    Sam will be back in Sanctuary in a little while. I think she looks pretty odd with black hair.

    It's interesting to bring up the "dark and depressing" issue in the context of home entertainment. I tend to find the crime procedurals in the "dark and depressing" category because despite all the nifty CSI stuff and banter, they stil are about murder and mayhem. Yet they are the ratings leaders.

    I think you hit the nail on the head :D

    In these times people want optimistic light hearted shows. They don’t want people arguing all the time, constant disasters and confusion or a sense that nobody is leading them in the right direction. All of this plays out in real life and therefore the show offers no escape.

    Let’s hope they get it right soon or this will be the last stargate series.

    OK, they are starting the first exploration on a desert planet. (Dune? Let's hope there are no giant worms!)

    I see three options:
    1. They stay on the desert planet ala the original Stargate movie. Perhaps they use the flying camera to find a better place on that planet and trek (hmm, Desert Trek?) to it.

    2. They all go to the planet and start looking for a better planet thru the star gate on the planet. This would give them lots of new worlds to explore in a short time frame.

    3. They find something that lets them fix up the ship and ride along with the ship to look for another planet. I think this one is a long shot.

    I'm betting on 2. Finding food and water would be tough for 1 and 3.

    Anybody else have any other plots?

    See the "Mcgruber" SNL spoofs on YouTube. He looks so old.

    It may be a long shot, but I predict the "something" will sort of fix up the ship long enough to look for another planet.
    Of course, I cheated as I've looked at the episode summaries available on tv.com which are spoilers, sort of.

    I must agree. I watched Star Trek: Voyager 2 times over. Loved it. SG-U feels like that so far. But much more steamy. Too steamy if you ask me. I loved Atlantis and SG-1 was the best. Even the promos spin it as a "Steamy and Sexy show". Like that's the real story. Just cut the gate crap and make a soft porn show out of it. If the entire show is going to be like the Series premiere was I'm gonna stop watching. I watch for the Science Fiction NOT the storage room romps!

    So far I was not impressed but many times the first few episodes of any series aren't that great. Plus I assume the series will be based more on a Planet of the week story line, which could be interesting. The guy playing the doctor is either a terrible actor or the character is incredibly sinister or mentally ill. Pretty much every scene with him annoyed me to no end. From my understanding 20 episodes have been ordered and most of them shot so I guess there will be a good chance at straightening things out before any plug is pulled on the series.

    Yeah, I felt like Robert Carlyle was trying to be some kind of method actor. I like that in some roles - Vincent D'Onofrio in L&O:CI comes to mind - but it doesn't feel right here so far. Then again, we don't know the character either. So maybe it'll come together.
