A petition to resurrect Stargate Universe has come to my attention. It took me ages to come to terms with the shows cancellation. After continually comparing it to Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek, I eventually came to love the series and happily got the DVDs. The petition opens with the following:
We the audience humbly ask you to consider our case that it would profit both Netflix and MGM Studios to cooperate in reviving the television series Stargate Universe (SGU). Information has emerged subsequent to SGU’s cancellation which demonstrates its viewers to be far more numerous than heretofore believed, and ideally suited to become Netflix customers. We hereby petition Netflix to evaluate SGU in light.
It then goes on to decry the Nielsen ratings stating:
Though the Nielsen ratings measure conventional audiences with laudable accuracy, SGU’s uniquely unconventional viewers went largely uncounted, watching in ways and time frames beyond The Nielsen Company’s purview.
The idea that Destiny could finish her mission is exciting but how many times have fan petitions and protests against cancelled shows actually worked? I’m trying not to be negative and commend the person who started the petition. I’ve signed it myself as I live in hope. The petition needs a million signatures, if you loved Stargate Universe, go do your bit.
