Season 1, episode 12
Stargate Universe seems to be borrowing from Battlestar Galactica’s (BSG) play book with its civilian verses military storyline. But it doesn’t work for me. This week’s episode was a chore to watch. The civvies trapping the military on another part of the ship and asking them to disarm seemed clunky.
Maybe because SGU hasn’t got its legs yet or maybe because I want t it to be Stargate and it clearly doesn’t’ want to be. Whatever, it’s not BSG and it should drop the civvies verses military storyline quickly.
The civvies are boring apart from Rush and Eli, so to focus on them is to waste my time. We had the IOA (International Oversite Advisory committee) trying to take over Stargate operations in SG1 and SGA and it worked there but I’m over them.
Let’s move on and establish some solid mythology. I don’t mind if SGU doesn’t want to be all Stargatey but stop trying to be BSG.
