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.

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