Product Description

Product Description

A group of soldiers, scientists and civilians, fleeing an attack, find themselves stranded billions of miles from Earth on an Ancient ship known as the Destiny. Locked on an unknown course, they must fight to survive and find a way home. The danger, adventure and hope they find on board the Destiny will reveal the heroes and villains among them.

Synopsis

Younger in tone than previous STARGATE series, this sci-fi drama follows a group of scientists, soldiers, and ordinary people who are forced to travel through a Stargate when they come under attack. Emerging on an archaic starship headed away from Earth, the group soon find that their destiny has been sealed, as the ship's course is locked. Now they must fight for survival against hunger, dehydration, the twisted secrets of the Stargate, and even each other.

Includes all 20 episodes from season 1. --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.

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.

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.

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.

Fully justified member of the Stargate Universe. Brilliant show with excellent characters and stories. Sadly, many fans of the older series didn't like the fact it was nothing like SG1 or Atlantis, it so didn't get the praise it deserved and so not enough campaigned to keep the series going. Definitely cancelled before its time.

Only series one seems to be available on Bluray, so went with both seasons on DVD.

As a diehard Stargate fan I feel that SGU ended too soon, but it's not hard to work out why. The first season takes far too long to hit its stride and feels far too different from its predecessors, so by the time the generally superior second season rolled around the damage was already done. From the offset the producers pulled out all the stops to distance SGU from its predecessors in terms of tone, and they were a little too successful.

This is a show that tried far too hard to emulate Battlestar Galactica's dark, brooding and gritty feel, something that feels especially forced considering the other two series in the franchise. Yes, SG-1 and SGA both had moments of darkness and some grim themes, but the general feeling was one of action, adventure and entertainment. Initially SGU doesn't feel like the kind of Stargate established by ten seasons of SG-1 and five of Atlantis, though eventually it finds a good niche, albeit too late, and this distance drove off a lot of the fanbase, particularly those who thought SGA was 'sacrificed' to make way for the very different SGU. I was one of them - when first broadcast, I stuck it out for four episodes before leaving, annoyed by the franchise's new turn. However, I'm glad I made a point of watching it through properly when it was later repeated. This is something of a slow burner that rewards repeat viewings.

The Stargate franchise began with a film which then spawned several series that follow on from the original plotline. This particular series is the latest; and takes the franchise to a whole new level. The scene is set on a spaceship built by the race of Ancients that were the originators of the Stargates; only this ship is in another galaxy billions of light years away, and once they arrive there by mistake, the people have no way to return to Earth.

These stories are much darker and more grittier than the previous series. The team of people in the story were never meant to work together and are completely dysfunctional as a group. Their predicament produces some intense drama; and emotions are raw and never far from the surface making this a truly adult programme. This is enhanced by the use of closeups and steadicam work that put you right in the middle of the events.

Robert Carlyle is outstanding, turning in a performance that would rank amongst some of the greatest in theatre, film or television; but the other actors do an amazing job as well, making the whole series a "must watch". The plots are well thought out, very well written, and gel nicely with the previous incarnations of the franchise. This is an exceptional piece of television that deserves to be treated as a classical piece of broadcasting.

The box set is quite slim and functional; the disks have a number of extra features produced by the actors and directors that provide some background to the making of the series. This quite simply a great box set, one that would be popular with most SF fans, and one that I will watch many times.
