Thank goodness for DVD box sets! They enable viewers to appreciate more fully what first appeared on the television screen, where complex storylines were not helped by breaks for advertisements and weekly waits for the next instalment.

Fans of SGU STARGATE UNIVERSE here have been treated most royally, the box set generous with its extras. Each of the twenty episodes comes with a commentary. Each of the five discs has bonuses. Those on Disc 3 are especially helpful and may be worth watching before starting on this second season. They give a detailed guide of the ancient spaceship Destiny, revealing much that some viewers (including me) had not realized. Can this ship have a life and agenda of its own? Can a return to Earth be a poor substitute for the exciting alternative that seems increasingly possible?

Great scripts. Fine performances as tensions rise and loyalties are tested. Especially with impact is Robert Carlyle as the enigmatic NIcholas Rush (actor and character forces to be reckoned with). As ever, danger is never far away. Cue for spectacular stunts. Always the hardware and the settings convince, except perhaps in the excellent Episode 8. A desert created by special effects? Not at all! It is an actual location - as revealed in yet another interesting bonus.

Despite all the bonuses, I found aspects confusing - especially when simulations and stone switches were involved. This is clearly thus a box set which will amply repay a return visit, those intricate storylines thereby appreciated all the more.

Further seasons would have been most welcome, but many may appreciate the way this one ends - an optimistic note, with the adventures set to continue, even if we are not there to see them.

The Brilliant SGU continues to deliver intelligent scifi drama. The storylines have multi arcs, intertwining with each other, unravelling its charms just like a book, so only attentive viewers will experience its true brilliance, casual/lazy viewers need not apply.

Louis Ferreira wonderfully portrays Young, whose immense stress over his command duties, his personal issues and Rush's shenanigans have pushed him to the edge. He doesn't wink and crack jokes, he behaves like a real person as do the others. The scene with Young and the dying crewman is shocking and really strikes a emotional note, adding to the overall tension.

Why people want the same old thing over and over again is beyond me. Scifi needs to change and expand in order to survive and that is exactly what SGU has given us. I've watched all 30 episodes so far, I didn't text while watching, I didn't email or talk on the phone, I watched the show.
SGU is splendiferous in all respects and demands attention. Highly recommended.

I came to Stargate Universe late through Amazon Prime and was immediately hooked on the first season - a good, inventive, serious sci-fi show. For obvious reasons I carried on with season two to find that these 20 episodes are even better. For those that don't know, the series was then cancelled so there will be no more. A shame but it doesn't detract from the quality of this season.

If you haven't seen season one then rewind and start there but if you have then this season is very much more of the same. More aliens, more space battles, more body swapping, more time loops etc etc. There are still good character dynamics but I'd suggest a little less soap opera than what's gone before.

The general tone is at times darker, especially when things take a savage turn in episode 8 (Malice) but there are also flashes of humour to lighten the mood as required. Episode 14 (Hope) for example is a strangely humorous but soulful episode. Other highlights include a Groundhog Day/Source Code type episode (Trial and Error) and a cracking Colonel Young v Dr Rush face off in The Greater Good. The Young/Rush dynamic continues throughout and for me Rush remains the most interesting hero/villain of the piece.

I don't want to give too much away about the ending but considering the show was cancelled before the full story of Destiny could be told, I think they've done a good job of giving some kind of resolution. It's not perfect but it is what it is. I won't moan anymore, there's 40 episodes of fun, daring, inventive sci-fi to savour over the two seasons, just wish there was a little more.

Having set the tone for the series, this season develops the characters and travels of the team further. Essentail viewing if you are a sci-fi fan.

Stargate Universe presented a much darker tale compared to Stargate SG1 and Stargate Atlantis, but it was no less enjoyable. A great series which was pulled just as it was beginning to take off.

I personally completely disagree with anyone who says the series was boring or not as good as the first stargate or atlantis, these people simply dont understand intelligent story lines and charactors, someone here said that there are no characters to "relate to" (supposedly compared with the previous series) but if you think SG-1 and the team on atlantis is easy to relate to then you are not human, since they do not act at all like any people do, they make hilarious decisions, ones that (for the team leaders at least) special forces officers would NEVER be so hilariously gullible.

The fact is, SGU is a grown up series, i grew up watching SG1 and Atlantis, and there perfect for that, but SGU is for people who can understand realistic characters, and real human emotions, people arnt perfect (like sg1 and atlantis) people make mistakes, there selfish.
You might find yourself asking, well if they act just like everyone else, why watch it? Isnt that just going to be boring/depressing?

No, that is why i dont watch Eastenders or any array of terrible soaps, but the premise of this show is taking normal people and throwing them into an unbelievable and catastrophic situation, and a storyline which i think is probably the best sci-fi out there!

Now its been canceled because immature Americans wanted more children's tv from SG1 (dont get me wrong i loved the show for what it was, but SGU is far better in every way), We in the UK didnt get a say as usual, but i strongly advise those who have not watched it to give it a go, I for one loved it and will miss it greatly.
