5.0 out of 5 stars First 12 Episodes Review 27 Feb 2010
By C. Wise
Format:DVD
Yes this isn't your usual getting saved at the last second, making jokes while being tortured kind of Stargate we are used to, and that's a good thing. The previous Stargate TV franchises consisting of SG1 and SGA which used the same formula and had the same tone, and don't get me wrong, I love these shows, but ratings had dropped and a change was required for SG to survive. Some compare SGU to Battlestar Galactica, it has more drama like BSG, it's set in space like BSG, they are far away from home like BSG, but other than that the show even with its darker feel, has a completely different tone and is far less political. The show also has beautiful special effects with the gate opening procedure looking much better than previously. The special effects aren't too abundant, but when they are there, they're fantastic.
This is a show about survival, with real emotions and fear coming to the surface throughout, people behaving irrationally with different agendas. It's the potential of the show that stands out, with a huge ancient ship to be explored, no doubt riddled with cool technologies, not to mention the galaxy they are stuck in, billions of light years from home with new aliens to encounter.

The show has had 3 slow episodes especially the episode: Life which was pretty slow but essential in the long run, other than that however the show has been strong with great episodes like: Light, Time and the fantastic Justice episode which for a sci-fi show was exceptional. Episodes 11-12 (Space & Divided) are also top notch with aliens, action, the works.
The haters of the show who call it a soap in space exaggerate greatly and need to give it a chance. This show doesn't want to be an SGA clone, it's a serious scifi drama.

4.0 out of 5 stars SG for those willing to think 9 May 2010
Format:DVD
SGU is not simple sci-fi 45-minute-storytelling; it is not humour-laden froth (which, excellent though it is, SG1 qualifies as); it is not full of fantastic aliens bent on invading the Earth again, and again (and again); it doesn't star Amanda Tapping, which is a real shame; it is not "put your brain on hold" "let's blind them with SFX" sci-fi.

What it is is drama; dark, brooding drama with characters who have flaws and backgrounds full of trauma and difficulties - like real people. Well- written, sparse, well acted and with, no doubt, a long-term arc with some depth.

So, don't listen to the "we hate it because it isn't proper Stargate" brigade; open your eyes, ears, brains and put a bit of effort into it and you'll be rewarded.

4.0 out of 5 stars Balanced Reviews 2 May 2010
Format:DVD
The reviews here are, to say the least, polarized! However I feel the show should be judged on its own merits rather than "Well it is not SG1". I agree it isn't SG1 (which started strong but in later seasons ...). I agree that not every character is likable (but I say that in a positive way). However it is an ensemble cast in a difficult situation which they do not control and with a slowly developing but rich storyline (including a developing back-story).

I recommend you give it a try, watch the complete season and then I suspect many will watch it again. It is worth your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stargate universe 25 Feb 2012
By Jack
Format:DVD
Season 1 of stargate universe can be very slow going. The season gets better as it goes. While season one can be slow, season two is a remarkable piece of television which makes the payoff of sticking with the first season well worth it. I would strongly suggest watching both season's even if you find it boring at the start. Stargate Universe is separate from the other two shows in the franchise so even if you have never watched them you will not be lost watching this. The CGI and music are incredible and the storyline will be compelling. It becomes quite thought provoking and you will have a strong emotional attachment to the show by the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stargate universe season one 9 May 2011
Format:DVD
All in all a fantastic series . The acting is great and the storyline brilliant. This first series is very character driven but always spattered with good drama and scifi elements. I would highly recommend this to viewers new to stargate all the way to the most die hard fans as it is fantastic but especially on blu-ray.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 22 Aug 2010
Format:Blu-ray
I thought this series was fantastic. I really enjoy watching the whole thing, just finished it last night.
Not having seen any of the earlier Star Gate didn't make a difference at all, I might now have to go back and watch them too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! 24 Mar 2011
Format:DVD
I bought this on a whim just because Robert Carlisle's in it. I think he's a fabulous actor and have enjoyed everything I've seen him in, plus I'm a bit of a sci-fi fan. I wasn't expecting much really as I've watched a couple of the other Stargates and thought they were a bit rubbish, but I thought what the hell I'll give it a try.

What can I say, after the box set sat there gathering dust for a few weeks I was bored so I watched the first episode, then the next, then the next... This is an amazing programme, I am completely hooked and I've pre-ordered the next series as I'm desperate to watch more. I knew Robert Carlisle wouldn't let me down!...

One to watch, once, maybe. There's little enough to love enough to warrant owning and re-watching.

Just binge watched all of these. It's a shame season 2 isn't available on blu-ray.. And there isn't a season 3! The video and audio is great.
