Stargate Universe Canceled

By December 20, 2010

Follow me on:

Ming-Na and Robert Carlyle in Stargate Universe, which will end after it completes its second season.


After all the cancellation dramas that periodically beset its older brothers in the franchise, Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis, perhaps it's just as well SGU has been spared the trouble.

While it will air the balance of season 2 on schedule, Syfy has decided to not renew Stargate Universe for a third season. The series has 10 episodes remaining in its second season and Syfy will air these episodes as planned next Spring.

As usual, it boiled down to the numbers for Syfy, which is a unit of NBC Universal. Stargate Universe has recently averaged a 0.5 in 18-49, below the averages for the Syfy series that have been renewed.

Creators Robert C. Cooper and Brad Wright had planned a loose, five-year storyline for the series, starting with initial stories about simple survival -- progressing into more adrenaline-fueled conflicts first from home-galaxy enemies (the Lucian Alliance) followed by more alien threats in their own far-distant locale. Possibly, Syfy has lowered the axe now rather than later, so that the creative team can do what retooling is still possible to provide a partial resolution for the Destiny and its accidental crew.

The news comes two months after the abrupt cancellation of Caprica. But while the Battlestar prequel had never gained much traction with fans, SGU had overcome initial skepticism to build a (very) small but loyal fanbase. Also, unlike Caprica, SGU emerged from its deliberately measured early episodes to add significant new layers of peril and conflict--though its "message from the universe" storyline didn't work as well as some of its other developments.

Two cancellations do not make a house-cleaning, though. Syfy is continuing its three popular summer series, Warehouse 13, Eureka, and Haven, plus Sanctuary, even as it adds Being Human, Alphas, and the potential series Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome.

This is a real waste of potential. The acting has been excellent--Robert Carlyle won a Best Actor prize for his role in the show at the 2010 Gemini Awards--and so have the writing and production values. Where I never had any sense that Stargate Atlantis was going somewhere, with SGU there was a real feeling of progression, and the immersion of these characters into a new and progressively deterrestrialized existence. I can understand folks not finding themselves as drawn in as I was, but this is a quality series whose steady build toward a five-year climax would have been a great journey for the characters and fans alike.

A million years ago, Syfy (then the Sci Fi Channel) picked up Stargate SG-1 after it got its start on Showtime. How cool would it be if, in a karmic display of sci-fi symmetry, Showtime picked up SGU after it got its start on Syfy?

Oh darn. It seems that SGU won’t be around, and that V is not just a letter in the alphabet.

Quite a shame. RIP SGU.

Such sad news.
Love, agree (and hope) the last two paragraphs btw.

Warehouse 13?… God that was crap, can’t believe it’s actually survived the axe, SGU was entertaining best SG to date, shame it’s being axed, ah well I guess the viewers general intellect is less than what it used to be.

We need something for our Stargate thirst….”Dial the damn gate Daniel!”

Yeah, agreed, we need something for stargate, and someone needs to pick it up!

(7) Nick says:

It’s a shame that a quality show was so disparaged by the fans of the former style of SG shows. What is it about scifi fandom and it’s cannibalistic tendencies? For those who think that cancellation of SGU will mean a greater likleihood of returning to the previous slightly cornier style of the franchise – you will see your hopes quickly dashed. The bean counters in charge will not be making the same distinction. the failure of SGU will be see as a failure of STARGATE – a stargate that had a pretty well known name attached to the production no less. I hope all of you whiners are happy now.

(8) oldhousegeek says:

What a tragedy. SGU was one of those rare scifi offerings that had it all: great writing, amazing acting, and great production values. Shame on (ugh) Syfy for not giving it a bit more chance to pick up a fan base. And shame on all those whiny old SG fans who couldn’t accept anything different. Maybe this cancellation just shows that the great unwashed TV audience can’t handle intelligent TV. I’m really bummed…

December 20, 2010 at 1:24 pm
(9) heather says:

Wow. This is the lamest news I have heard in a while. I am very disappointed. I love this show equally as much as its predecessors. How can you cancel this? It’s awesome! Screw the other shows on syfy! I want Stargate!

December 20, 2010 at 1:30 pm
(10) Shamroc says:

SyFy is completely retarded they only care about money that’s instant and nothing more. Canceling shows that have plenty of potential before its even finished a 2nd season is just stupid. They have done this to a lot of shows lately.

December 20, 2010 at 1:38 pm
(11) Werewolf says:

I hope the writers are reading this comment. You have done a great disservice to the SGU franchise. Whoever picked you guys to write for this series is an idiot. Perhaps you have written good touchy-feely, romantic dramas in the past so someone thought you could write. You need to stay away from Sci-Fi. You Fail. SGU fans want to see people working together to survive aliens and bad guys. We do NOT want to spend our time finding out whether or not someones mom is surviving her aids, or how tough it is on someones lesbian lover that she’s gone and can only come back in someone else’s body, or if the colonels wife is cheating on him while he cheated on her and got the medic pregnant!! How stupid are you? I couldn’t identify with ANY of your characters, and I couldn’t stand spending time that they could be shooting aliens watching them ponder their little eccentric relations with each other! PLEASE, Execs at Sci-Fi, pull your heads out, fire those idiots, get some writers that know how to write action, and put the series back on the air and make some money.
And for crying out loud, fire whoever hired those poor excuses for writers in the first place. It’s not like it’s a difficult proposition to write the series successfully. Put in more aliens, put in more fighting the aliens, put the redhead in some skintight outfits, and have people start fighting the ANTAGONIST instead of each other!! Oh, and what in the world is wrong with you putting wrestling on sci-fi?

December 20, 2010 at 2:42 pm
(12) Seán Enright says:

This is Absolutely crazy. This is one of the best shows i’ve ever seen.
I presume the channel has a part to play in this as many people don’t get the channel, including myself.
Its acting and storyline has been increasingly compelling and interesting.
This is some terrible news for me to hear and probably a lot more people who have followed SGU.
God knows if it were up to me it wouldn’t and in my opinion couldn’t boil down to just ten more episodes.
Suppose nothing we can do but enjoy the last few.
Thanks to Robert C. Cooper and Brad Wright for an amazing show.

December 20, 2010 at 2:45 pm
(13) Iggs says:

The : averaged a 0.5 in 18-49…. does that take in to account people like me paying 25 quid every 2 weeks just to buy enough data allowance on their mobile broadband to download and see what the next episode has to offer?

I’ve spent more on viewing all seasons in 3 months than a TV licence holder in one year!

This is a money making program so it’s not just me hurting, but also my mobile broadband provider :(

December 20, 2010 at 2:52 pm
(14) Stephen says:

I also leave my comment that it is a crying shame to let this show go. My wife and I have really enjoyed the Stargate series and found this one no different. I love Stargate Universe and would love to see it continue, but I guess the mighty dollar rules out the fans.

December 20, 2010 at 2:53 pm
(15) Daniel says:

I have a great idea. Bring back StarGate: Atlantis for a sixth season. Now that was a great series. I fell sorry that SGU fans got their series canceled ,but I didn’t think it was all that good. I may buy the seasons, maybe.

P.S. Getting SGU picked up on Showtime would be a very interesting move.

December 20, 2010 at 2:58 pm

I am glad they leaked out the 3rd and 4th Season for the Fans!

Hey Werewolf , I bet you are an avid fan of sci- fi punch `em ups ; Kevin Sorbo and the Andromeda crew , no doubt . Well enjoy , pal .
But for us poor wretches who have more than a room temperature IQ , well , we enjoy a story that builds its foundations slowly , and carefully . A tale that relies on showing the viewer the complexities of human nature under enormous pressure . It was creating the bones of a tale quite subtle and emotional . The flesh , that we will never now see , would have added a uniqueness and quality that these writers were just beginning to show . You Yanks are forever cutting the throats of brilliant writers for the sake of the holy dollar bill , and are adding to the dumbing down of the arts to accommodate the reality TV plebs who demand nothing but shallowness and dross on their TV screens .
Money talks , and good original science fiction has to take a walk . Thank the Gods I live in Britain where good writers have more impact and respect than your colonial obsession with ratings .
I`m old enough to remember seeing the original OUTER LIMITS on black and white TV as a kid . Now there was ground breaking Television ………. RIP American originality and genre leading commitment and love of the science fiction art . And please don`t get me started on the outright murder of good television when Defying Gravity was axed to death . What is it with you people ! Once the leaders , now the last in the line for creative , ground breaking Sci – fi . Thank the stars for Being Human and Dr Who : magic prose and classy acting .

It goes to show you that it’s the accountants that rule the airwaves. It matters to them that some shows supposedly do not generate top dollar in advertising costs, the fact is the shows do generate money, but not enough for them…The rating system, what a bunch of hooey…It’s all a tax write-off for them anyway…..and yes, I do not watch wrestling on that channel…there are enough of them on the other ones….

December 20, 2010 at 3:33 pm
(19) Fubar=SciFy says:

What a bunch of bean counting short-sightedness!

@dreamwalkergeoff: hey, your assessment of Warewolf’s a bit off. Clearly, his brain’s only slightly warmer than the cosmic background radiation. And his whinny, Starship Trooper clan is a main reason why the show was canned. ( And now you know the anti-climatic end of the five-year plot: there is little intelligent life in the NBC Universal. )

And, BTW, dreamwalkergeoff, SGU’s an American-Canadian production. I’m sure our Canadian Blokes and Sheilas wouldn’t like being lumped into America :) )

So, dear fellow Fans, next season, watch for SGFP – Stargate Fetal Position, where we all curl up, contemplate our navels, and wish for rebirth…

Fair dinkum , mate . Tar for the laugh . A thousand apologies to our Canadian Brothers and Sisters ……I love the way you talk .

(21) Nancy says:

I can’t believe they’re taking SGU off. I didn’t think I would like it but now I love it. I really liked SG Atlantis and took that away as well.
So you cancel all these shows but leave the wrestling. What’s up with that???? Get rid of that crap (wrestling) and maybe thing would be better.

December 20, 2010 at 4:49 pm
(22) promytius says:

FINALLY! This was the worst SyFy (ugh…) series ever – just look at the first season; they did INCREDIBLY dangerous sexy things like:
1. Fix the lights
2. Send out for ice.
3. Get the AC online.
4. Invent the WORST “I’m in another body” gimmick ever.
5. Argue – about nuttin’.
6. Get sick.
7. Complain. A lot.
Tragic, really because every other Stargate series was very entertaining, smart, successful. This should have run as long as Hasselhoff’s reality show – oh, did you miss BOTH episodes?
Bye Bye, SG-U, couldn’t happen to a worse SyFy series.

December 20, 2010 at 4:53 pm
(23) Stryse says:

Unfortunately the last ten episodes will not be retooled. They’re already written, filmed, and getting the final touches. No, SGU will end its run on SyFy incomplete. Stupid move on SyFy’s part, imho. Although a devote fan of SGU and the broader franchise, I feel little compulsion to invest any more time into a story-line that obviously will not be resolved. Should I hear word SGU is picked up by another network, than I’ll reconsider. Otherwise, I’m sad to say, Stargate ended for me with the news of SGU’s cancellation.

December 20, 2010 at 5:38 pm
(24) Kelleria says:

Although I was not a fan of SGU in the beginning…I started to watch the series on dvd. It grew on me. I’m still a HUGE fan of Atlantis, SGU wasn’t bad – if given time to get to know the background of the characters. I am sorry to see it go. Well it’s back to the videostore for rentals, and never returning to SyFy. I think SyFy is run by people who haven’t a clue what real Sci Fi is. I will no longer be watching SyFy again. There’s nothing left to watch on it. I hope more people feel the same. When all ratings drop for SyFy maybe then they will realize WE, the veiwers, call the shots.

December 20, 2010 at 5:56 pm
(25) gman says:

SGU was NEVER as good as Atlantis or SG1.

in trying to be “grown-up” or “serious” like Galactica they lost the humor and adventure that made the first two stargate series a must see.

I kept telling my wife if that would just get David Hewlitt on SGU it might make the show worth watching.

she said “not even that”.

December 20, 2010 at 6:11 pm
(26) d says:

Yet reality tv isn’t axed? are we all becoming just a bunch of losers that watch crap!
I hate that good shows go to waste while i get subjected to other channels giving me a proverbial fist to the groin every time i watch.
Scifi grow a brain and maybe sell the rights to free to air!
just another fox scenario like futurama.
maybe invest some time into nurturing what viewer retention you actually have! because the stargate fan base will go onto other channels rather than switching on to watch two seasons get into a show and be let down.

December 20, 2010 at 6:18 pm
(27) CmdrR says:

I kept hoping the show would improve. But, the first dozen episodes were deadly dull. Also, they NEVER gave the women characters anything worth doing. C’mon! Lesbians and phantom babies? Jeeez. The depression theme became the main one. Young is practically catatonic. Yikes. Sure, Showtime should jump in… carefully. But, fix this show. Make it worth watching. Where’s the excitement of a space adventure? Where are the characters we CARE about?

December 20, 2010 at 6:33 pm
(28) Mark says:

REALLY!!…. WOW…that IS a waste of talent and an escalating story and solidifying cast which I considered to be the best Syfy in years – much better than Caprica or Eureka or the other bs airing now.

I can’t help reflect that it has a larger following than is reflected in the “NBC” ratings…people record and watch later…since we don’t all sit down and remain captive at the same time for our weekly dowsing of commercials…wonder if that was considered in the evaluation.

btw…is the ship for sale?..it seemed recently the only escape from holiday marketing.

December 20, 2010 at 6:41 pm
(29) MKW says:

SO disappointed! The only ‘hard’ sci-fi offering from SyFy is going away? While there’s plenty of room for playful shows like Warehouse (which is getting better) and Eureka (which is playful, smart, and has a heart), it was nice to still have SGU as a truly well-acted, dramatic offering. There’s so few of these types of sci-fi shows left (anyone think of another hard sci-fi show still on?), to see one with such promise come to an early demise is very disheartening.

December 20, 2010 at 6:44 pm
(30) joe says:

Canceling SGU is a huge mistake. I’m still trying to figure out why Syfy is adapting Being Human rather than showing the British version which will continue to be far superior.

The sad fact it that Syfy continues to cancel drama and replace it with cheaply made crappy ‘reality programing’.

December 20, 2010 at 6:59 pm
(31) Kevin says:

I am sorry I do not agree with the author of the article.

It is clear NBC, killer of the original Star Trek Series when it would have been the best plan to keep and Comcast (merged with NBC) the killer of TechTV deliberately moved things to die.

Name any time moving a show from its main time slot to a different day and have NO adverse effect and I will show you a liar.

I am sorry, but the remaining shows are JOKES! None of them SciFi, and only One promises the possible SciFi element.
That being the other Gallactica series “POTENTIALLY” being done… but not promised ….

NBC sees the channel no longer what we the audience want, they see it ONLY as a marketing tool.

Heck they would do better re-airing old shows they helped make or where aired elsewhen….

The do not get the techie/geeky/thinkie groups of audiences out there.

December 20, 2010 at 7:01 pm
(32) latoya says:

I have been a loyal SG1 follower for all seasons, didn’t like Stargate Atlantis but I tried awfully hard to like SGU. I failed. The plot never seemed to be going anywhere. Every week I expected it to get better and it never did. I didnt identify with the characters and after a while even the one character I liked ELI, started to annoy me. So I’m not surprised or even displeased that it got cancelled. I’ll just stick yo HAVEN and Eureka.

December 20, 2010 at 7:14 pm
(33) tim welch says:

cancel the one show that is actually science fiction, at least to me… that makes perfect sense if you’re a ghost hunters producer or a fan of american pickers …the show has great characters and every episode was better than the last…by far the best of sg’s…the first book i ever read and truely enjoyed was Childhoods End by a.c. clarke…will the real science fiction channel please put the syfy channel out of its misery…quit pissing on my leg and calling it haven

December 20, 2010 at 7:33 pm
(34) Fubar=SciFy says:

Was just wondering: are we here truely representative of the actual SGU audience? At this point (reply #34), there are more of us who liked the show than not – and only a few ‘ho hums’.

So, if we are representative, our voices were either not heard, not noticed, or disregarded. So much for customer service, eh?

Speaking of old Star Trek … maybe we need to do what the Trekkie fans did and bug the shows advertisers… except I tried to disregard them LOL.

December 20, 2010 at 7:44 pm
(35) Happy Lemming says:

Sigh – another series killed before its time. Someone should go to SyFy’s boardroom and slap them about a bit. SGU deserves a longer run.

On the other hand, there’s more to life than television.

December 20, 2010 at 8:05 pm
(36) Fritoman says:

It is sad that SGU did not make it but….the story line started off way too slow to pull the average viewer in. Being a huge fan of the previous two installments, I stuck with it knowing it would get better. Problem is, the first season was quite boring at times. I was surprised that it was picked up for a second season (which was much better) but it was too little too late. I am not shocked about it’s cancellation….and for SyFy or whatever they call themselves these says, it is obvious that they will be ignoring us SpaceFi lovers and I will be watching a different network. Until a real show is aired on that network, I’ll be somewhere else.

December 20, 2010 at 8:31 pm
(37) JP says:

SyFy sux, nothing else to say. Anything intelligently done will never make it on that network, instead we are fed Ghost Hunter and WWF. Good Lord.

December 20, 2010 at 8:39 pm
(38) Iuliana says:

I am a fan of the Stargate franchise. I fell in-love with SG-1 and Atlantis, but truthfully, I only started watching SGU because it was part of the franchise.

The first season was highly disappointing. I didn’t really feel any character progression. Dr. Rush is still a shady character, and after one a half seasons, I am still not sure of his full intentions. Truthfully, the only character “progression” I see is Chloe, and that is only due to her becoming an alien.

The acting is no doubt excellent, but it took one and a half season for the show to truly take off. This season is definitely more intriguing than the first one, and it’s a shame that it took the writers this long to change the dynamic of the story. Knowing that they won’t alter the remainder of the show, I wish we could at least get closure; maybe a 2-hour movie.

Seeing that the story revolves around the ship ‘Destiny’ and the destinies of the crew members, one thing I still wonder about is why they named the show Stargate Universe instead of “Stargate Destiny”.

It seems that all the good shows are being canceled but they have decided to keep going with the rubbish ones.

(40) Mental says:

I am crushed. SGU is the show I looked forward to watching every week.

I watched NCIS every Tuesday until SGU came on on Tuesday. SGU won over NCIS for me.
Then they changed the day and I could not find it.

I ordered a DVR from the cable company just to record my SGU.

I was never big on Star Trek, Battle Star, or Star Wars,
But I have seen every Stargate Episode and Movie.

Where is SciFy Getting these numbers from?
Everyone I know watches Stargate.

This is really a shame.

December 20, 2010 at 9:17 pm
(41) GBM says:

Really pissed off at this point……what the hell are they thinking? Stargate fans are everywhere (they might not admit it) but they watch. I agree that the story was being pushed into a corner and wasn’t going to last very long in its current track but fire the writers not cancel the show WTF? They better come up with something related to SG or im driving big truck threw studio.

December 20, 2010 at 9:29 pm
(42) starrpoint says:

I am sorry to see it go. I was just starting to get into it, but it too was devoling into a soap opera.

Write some good story lines and we will watch. it is hard to care about such nasty people.

(43) TheGecko says:

I used to stay home on Friday night because of ‘Scifi Friday’, but seriously people…who’s stupid, idiotic freaking idea was it to put WRESTLING on Friday night!?!

After almost 15 years of being a faithful fan of the Sci-Fi channel, of even having to pay extra on my cable to get all those years ago…I’ve just about had it. For the couple of shows that are still left…I have three letters for you: D V R!!!

December 20, 2010 at 11:24 pm
(44) Matt says:

This is bull!!!!

those other shows suck…

SGU had real people and real human emotions.

I can relate with Eli. He and Rush were the best.

please change your minds NBC.

Syfy are botch! how is wrestling sci fi? oh yeah its all fake!
Brad go somewhere else to get it made! maybe a National Network ABC, NBC, BBC. one of the best shows in AUS is breaking bad aired on ABC!!!

(46) Lozza says:

I’ve only just finished watching Season 1 of SGU and I can’t believe it’s axed after Season 2! Big mistake. This is a very classy show.

December 21, 2010 at 7:59 am
(47) Stroller says:

Thisd series had such potential – a million year old spaceship supposedly stuffed with advanced technology. But did we see any of it? Did they even try to properly explore the ship? Were the storylines believable? No. A couple of kilos of rock somehow managed to purify the air for a whole bloody spaceship? Where are they getting their food? And oh, let’s bypass all this science stuff by having some stupid communications “stones” and have people farting around back on earth ….. Sorry guys, it’s just pathetic.

This is not science fiction. Brad & Co – you are not capable of writing SF- please stay away from it in future or you will ruin some more potentially good series.

As for the Sci Fi Channel – well, WWF says it all. To the executives I would lie to say, the reason your channel is such a pile of utter crap, is that you have no SciFi on it.

But the rights to some good scifi with a storyline. Way Station by Clifford Simak. Gateway, by Frederick Pohl. And turn them into a series, but for God’s sake get rid of your braindead writers and find someone who understands SF.

(49) Dan says:

I was aggravated when they canceled SG1 after 10 years, but they got 10 years, I was mad when they canceled Atlantis after 5, they left so much unfinished! I swore I wouldn’t watch SGU and I was not impressed when I did at the beginning. But the show grew (like Atlantis did) and by the end of season 1 I was hooked and so was my office staff. There is tons they could have done with the story line and they were just getting to the point that they could start incorporating some old fashioned stargate writing into it.

Our work hours prevent us from being able to watch SGU when it airs, so we had to wait a day and then we would buy each episode one episode at a time on amazon.com to watch.

The only good show SyFy has left now is Sanctuary (Which I would have never watched in the first place if it wasn’t for Amanda Tapping). Its hard to have anything nice to say about the SyFy network or its viewers if shows like SGU get canceled, yet there is an endless amount of SyFy movies on all day long like ‘Manscito’, ‘Super Volcanoe’, ‘Megashark’, etc etc etc. It would be nice if there was a Network out there that would gather up these shows that foolish Networks let go and air them all. I would watch / record that channel all day long. SyFy lost a few viewers on my end here. I guess they are not interested in any shows that can not be created via special effects generated by highschool students on a lap top with some freeware graphic design suite.

I will continue to buy Sanctuary from amazon, hopefully Amanda Tapping and that lot will get away from SyFy too.

big sigh…..here I am in little ol New Zealand and a thought just popped into my head..wonder when SGU’s coming back? (we are a little behind USA of course)..googled it-and omfg-its a gonner!!! yes ,after reading most of these comments-we are all in agreeance-the sad fact is the economy and ratings conspire to rip the heart out of good sci-fi entertainment-and yeah,some of those episodes where a little too far removed from what we sci-fans want-lesbians in other peoples bodies and colonels who pork there medics-come-on-you writers should KNOW-dont mess with the formula! didnt you learn anything from sg1? especially taking those kind of risks(weak weird storylines) in this economy? who the hell is at the peltac there? (goa’uld control panel)-listen to your fans-then the numbers will come-listen to the numbers-your fans will leave……

(53) Tagomago says:

This is such a shame. This show had brilliant acting, serious sci fi plots and wonderful effects. I loved the fact it was a sci fi show with real human drama and that the characters weren’t perfect super heroes who figured things out straight away. A sad day for fans of intelligent Sci Fi.

I really enjoy the Stargate franchise, ever since the first movie. Now, it did take me a while to enjoy Atlantis and I was starting to get used to SGU too, but the one this most of you seem to be forgetting, regardless of how much we liked the show or not or how it compared to its predessosors or not, it is the ONLY Stargate show airing at the time. The only source from which anybody was stepping through a Chappa’ai (sp) and getting their molecules ripped apart only to have reassembled on the other side.

True, it was a slow start. That’s why I was only watching it as a rerun on Hulu. But the first season had a couple of great episodes (the one where Young strands Rush, one with the planet in the middle of nowhere) and the cliff hanger finale and the second season has had a bit of a better start.

I also agree with some of the points made previously as per the show not comparing to previous SG outfits. In this one it’s not all “One for All and All for One”. Individual characters have their own agendas (Ming and Rush) and every body tends to be more in touch with their dark side, with perhaps the exception of Eli and Matt. So at times it did seem more like I was watching Deperate Housewives. But then I got to see Sgt. Greer kick the crap out of somebody, Col. Young suffocate Col. Lou Diamond-Phillips or have the giant destiny dock with one of the seeding ships (f’n cool)!

I was sad by the cancelation of Atlantis and bummed that we might never find out what will ultimately happen with the destiny. Must mostly worried about the future of the Stargae franchise. It took Star Trek almost a DECADE to release another show after a cancellation, is that really how long we want to wait for more Stargate? And if Continuum and Ark of Truth are any indication of things to come, a couple of straight to DVD movies will simply not satisfy.

I am also very saddened to hear SGU has been cancelled, but to tell you the truth, I’m not overly surprised, which hurts me to say =( I have been a massive fan of the Stargate franchise since the very beginning – I absolutely loved (!!!) Stargate SG1 and Stargate Atlantis but unfortunately SGU didn’t rise to their level, and in many ways it has been a massive let down to its fans, which is very unfortunate, =( tear …

The series focused too much on the characters personal struggles on the ship, the Ancient communications stones, and the characters private lives (and time away) back on Earth; where it should have revolved around exploring Destiny and its advanced technology, the ships mission across the universe and all its data and possibility the presents of an advanced alien race plotting their demise, lol. Over a season has passed and all the planets they have visited have been boring and no advanced alien technology has been discovered, lol, which I find rather amusing due to the fact they’re living on an advanced alien Ancient space-ship. So far we have seen more advanced alien technology on the Earth battle-ship the Hammond, and here I thought the Ancients were over a million years our predecessors, which once possessed near-infinite knowledge of the known universe, lol. Furthermore, very little that has actually happened in the series that has actually added to the Stargate story itself. =(

Of course it was canceled. Lets see, what was the phrase? Oh yes, “We are going to target this series to a younger audience.” So basically you are saying “forget you” to the fans that have supported the Stargate franchise for the last 14 years? No wonder the ratings dropped like a stone with the junk they showed the first season. They completely alienated the established Stargate fan-base! The second season started to get better but it was to little to late. I just hope they don’t end it in such a way that makes it impossible for another network to pick it up WITH DIFFERENT WRITERS. Ones that go back to the old Stargate style that everyone loved. The style that lasted for 10 seasons. Stargate SG-1 The longest running sci-fi show in history. NBC/syfy Idiots…

I think Syfy need to be burned down, It’s Sci-Fi series worst enemy. I Think they really need to go away from business that they Cleary do not want to do. This isn’t the first good show in a short time. SGU IS great, but in that format 45min in one episode was too short.
Am sad to see that the there is so many people that fear the change and can’t learn new things anymore. For those people I have to say life changes and grow and if you can’t live with it, just get out of the way FUTURE IS JUST PASSING BY.

Here is some information I found out on how to contact the SyFy people:

SyFy Head of Programming
c/o NBC Universal
30 Rockefeller Plaza
New York, NY 10112

Here is a phone number to call them:
(212) 664-4444 Call there and ask for Chris Sanagustin he’s the VP

The box is full but I plan on calling everyday till I can at least have the privelage of talking to someone to tell them what a horrible mistake they are doing.

Stargate Universe canclled continued 1:

The Stargate Universe show is kicking into high gear and now they want to kill it. What a financial waste to the channel/ network (that includes NBC), to get through the first season and make an irrational permature decision to axe it half way through the 2nd season. Come on! The financial pay off could’ve begun in this season and I strongly believe the third season (AT LEAST).

I can’t watch anymore SyFy programming when they cancel the good ones and in place put horrible ones in like Ghost Hunters and Wrestling?
Today its Stargate Universe and Caprica being cancelled, tomorrow what? Being Human? Eureka? Warehouse 13? Sanctuary? Who wants to waste their time getting involved in a good show just to have it cancelled so quickly and abruptly. Syfy you need to take care of the shows you got and start treating them better – than setting your viewers up for another and burning them again. SyFy you abuse your viewership when you do this all the time (guys/ gals look at their show cancellation track record). When you abuse your viewership your ultimately abusing your financial revenue coming in.
So sorry SyFy I’m not playing this game anymore. You can’t start them and drop them like this. I am doing my part with hundreds of others to spread the word on Facebook, Twitter and everywhere else on the web. I am displeased. I’m hoping that you are seeing that your viewership is upset and they are not quite about it. We are contacting you, partetioning you and if you aren’t listening we as a group are contacting other networks to take the franchise to them. When they hear from many viewers that can easily grab and add to their viewership they listen, and thats what we are doing.

December 23, 2010 at 5:53 pm
(60) Scott L says:

Stargate cancelled2:
So SyFy continue destroying your viewership base and your sponsorship. You are going to sow what you reap- no one is going to watch if you keep doing this.
SyFy you caused this problem now you’re the only ones that can fix it. And start fixing it with Stargate Universe and the your other viewership Caprica!

Give us what we want.
For the rest of you that feel strongly about this, don’t sit by and take this. If you wait to long, this will get cold. Other shows have been cancelled by other networks and they have been brought back because the people demanded it. “Google” it to find out. Right now Stargate Universe is mid season break and I think people are not aware of this cancellation. Heck I wasn’t aware of this till I accidently bumped into a comment on another web site. I strongly feel as though if they cancel the show- that will be the end of the Stargate franchise. And being new blood of only 2 years and 35 I still think there is strong life in this franchise. All the series were different but they complimented each other and they were great- and so is this.
Spread the word and get people to write the company to complain and ask to bring it back. Or call potential networks to carry it, call, email, post messages on a forum like this. Facebook and Twitter numbers like us are growing on this.

Stargate Universe cancelled3:

Look at this only just a handful of viewers know about this cancellation so far (right before the holidays)…..
On just one facebook event page alone over 4000 people in 5 days. i.e. “Boycott SyFy, Save SGU, Sign a petition to save Stargate Universe” Heck even putting a simple status or tweet message in your Facebook or Twitter “I like the show Stargate Universe and I am mad its being cancelled. I wish we could do something about it. (Optional) Here are some links to get into action…..” to a petition or group. A message like that does not make you overzealous it just makes people aware that the show is cancelled and that their are viewers out there that want to do something about it.
Don’t sit by. Use 10-15 minutes of your time and get involved. If you have other advice please post it for me and others.

“Save Our Destiny!”

SyFy has a habbit of cancelling the only shows I watch. Farscape, Caprica, and now SGU.

Sanctuary, Warehouse 13, and Eureka are pure crap. Imagination that! I will no longer be watching SyFy. Not a fan of your horror movies, nor your threatened by weather, giant bug, fish, reptile, teddy bear movies.

Hey SHOWTIME; I promise to add Showtime to my cable package, if you pick up SGU.

(63) James H says:


I just started watching this series last week after seeing a random episode in syndication on basic cable. I was so struck by the quality of the acting and the suspense inherent in the plot line, that I immediately started downloading episodes from Itunes. Now I find out it’s being canceled. Sometimes I feel like I just can’t win. I never liked the Stargate series before. The acting was always really hackneyed, the plots repetitive and outrageous, and the writing was frequently hokey and dull. They seemed to have solved all of those problems in this new series, and then give it only two seasons. It’s really sad that good, intelligent, suspenseful, and character driven sci-fi is so hard to keep on the air. First Firefly, now this. How long before producers and networks get past the idea of “time slots” and figure out that series like this could survive (and even thrive) on Itunes and DVD sales. I know I would gladly continue to pay $2-3 an episode.

December 24, 2010 at 11:04 pm
(64) JJ says:

James H, I feel your frustration. SGU suffers the same fate as so many other quality scifi shows.

You mentioned Firefly, one of the most mind boggling cancellations of all time, anyone half-wit would agree.. but there were also others like Farscape. At least here, we were graced by 4 good seasons b4 it got the royal axe..

Babylon 5 also had a slow start with the 1st season similar to SGU, but it was necessary to focus on character devt to set the stage & foundation for what was to come.. We were then rewarded by seasons 2 through 4, which ended up being some of the best sci-fi to ever grace the TV screen.. but the networks didn’t see it that way of course. B5 was soon under threat of being cancelled in its 4th season, which forced them to tie the knots on the main story arc before getting notice of a 5th season (as a result of a fan uprising showing there is power in numbers!). However, since the series’ main arc was essentially written out before its timely end, the last season felt out of place and ended up being a sad anti-climax. With SGU however, the episodes have already been finalized it seems, so they will not be re-written, and so, there is still a chance to revive it b4 it’s “carved in stone” so to speak… so we as fans must do our part!! (as Scott L made so clear!)

December 25, 2010 at 12:18 am
(65) JJ says:

Also Fubar=SciFy and dreamwalkergeoff: you fellas are bang on! SGU has real grit and substance, unrelenting intensity, and a solid foundation of characters (and talent) to draw from and build on ~ a true rarity in American programming (and yes, us Canadians had something to do with it ;) … at any rate, those who knock SGU are too quick to judge a classic in the making. If given the chance to flourish, it could well surpass its predecessors SG1 and Atlantis.

Too bad SciFy is too shortsighted to realize this. They’re content with shallow programming and the quick buck. And Americanizing the Brit series Being Human is a travesty of immense proportions! Mark my words, no remake will surpass the ingenuity of the original. And the rest of the dreck on SciFy is not worth batting an eyelash at (except perhaps the occasional light-hearted Merlin episode).

(66) caribguy says:

I was a big fan of SG-1 and Atlantis. I was looking forward to SGU but was sorely disappointed. Yes, the writing is great and the acting superb but the characters must have something that is likable or at least the actors be eye candy (it is TV after all) and I found nothing to like in the any of the characters and no eye candy. I don’t really blame SyFy after all shareholders have to be happy and cast and crew have to be paid which comes from advertising money so it’s simple math for the most part=low ratings low ad revenue. The most interesting thing is that the creators of the Stargate series indicated that they intentionally moved away from the flavor of SG-1 and Atlantis which was more action/shoot em up/alien encounter style to a more drama focused series. I think their mistake was that they started to believe their own hype-so they developed a series that was interesting only to themselves and they were not really thinking about the fans. We see this happen in music all the time-singer makes several albums that appeal to the masses and then they self indulge in an album that is interesting only to them and that album is a bust. The creators should retool the show -kill off a few characters bring some eye candy and reflect the flavor of SG-1 and Atlantis. The creators should indulge themselves in mini-series or movies that don’t taint the Stargate series. Although it might be a little ate for the tainting part and the creators unfortunately already have more money than they know what to do with so there is little incentive for them to negotiate with Syfy to retool the show or think of the fans. Pretty similar to when Star Trek Voyager was cancelled and replaced with Enterprise although Enterprise was no where near as painful as SGU.

I agree that firefly should have run longer @ least they got a movie to tie the threads together but I doubt that UNIVERSE will have that as MGM cant even bring itself to make the next sg1 movie or the first atlantis movie. NBC programmers proved theyve had their heads up their arse for years recently LIFE & SOUTHLAND,although TNT picked up SOUTHLAND the number of season episodes is sorely lacking GOOD LUCK DESTINY.

(72) Jonti says:

I can’t really agree with comments like “only two seasons” a show should be able to stand on its own two feet within a single 20 episode run. And I think SGU was successful at doing this. It simply seemed to suffer from a vocal opposition that were upset it wasn’t SG-2, and the general problem that seems to plauge current TV that anything that requires you to pay attention to an arc plot is apparently “too complicated.”

i am a fan of all three stargate series, but what i really liked about sgu was the fact that its gate network is both the oldest, and newest network thanks to the seed ships, which means that even though they are the newest, they are mich less advanced then the gates found in the milky way and pegasus galaxies that were built thousands of years prior.

(77) Zayne Anthony says:

This just really REALLY sucks. The only Stargate I actually liked from Episode 1. I’ve read a lot of what the older hardcore fans hated about the show, but in all honesty that’s what made the show so dang good. I can’t believe they would cut the show before the 2nd season even had a chance to play out, I mean seriously look at all the Star Trek: TNG spin offs, none of those did as well in their first 2 or 3 seasons as they did later.

Nice VD (I mean Syfy) cut off a good show with TONS of potential before you give it a real chance to shine. I really am done with getting hooked on new shows that just end up getting canceled in their prime, anyone remember HBO and their screw up with Deadwood and their lies for a movie or 2? Anyways back to SGU, If all they want to show is that crap a$$ Warehouse 13, Wrestling and Nightvision reality TV, they can keep it Syfy has been blocked from my TV and I’ll just Hulu the last 10 episodes. So in parting SCREW YOU SYFY. And BTW they don’t even listen if your a Nielson household… Kinda wonder why we even bother. :(

So there goes the SG fanchise, i hope for tvs sake someone makes a really good sci-fi show soon , otherwise bring me SG!!
i think people will agree with me when i say stargate brought us many days of enjoyable tv. with SG-1 setting the tone, SGA bringing a no bounds element to it and SGU forcing a fight for survival. wat better ways to enjoy tv.
R.I.P SGU, i hope so smart tv channel director will wake up one morning and go..”The show must go on” and bring us back the good stuff!!! :D

Somebody should send all these comments and all the other comments on other sites about the cancellation of SGU to the people in charge of the SG franchise.

I absolutely love this show. Ok maybe they could throw in some more battle scenes, sex scenes, gore blood and guts but I think the characters are great, the story building, and the story lines more unique and compeling than anything I’ve seen for some time. I don’t want cookie cutter or so called reality tv.
I want imagination, surprise, drama, and laughs,, , , this show has it all. Thank you all who created and acted in SGU. You’ve all shown me that their is some creativity left in this world, and that from time to time I’ll have the immense pleasure of experiencing it. I sometimes give up hope of every seeing anything builds on itself and gets better and more enjoyable as it ages. Thanks for having been and look forward to the last precious few chapters.

I’ve been a stargate fan since the beginning and at first I did not like the pace of the first season, though I do understand the need to set up character progression. But once the ball started rolling, SGU became a favorite of mine.

I was never able to catch the show when it was aired so I would always wait for it to come out on hulu. My question would be: Are those ratings including all of the alternate sources to watch the show or just people who tune into SyFy?

Never the less, I’ve enjoyed the outstanding acting and beautiful computer generated imagery. I do hope it will be able to come back someday.

SGU should continue. It was a good show and getting better all the time. One of the best shows out there. Well may be there was little bit too much emotions and just talking in the beginning, but in the second season they added more action.

It would also like to see Atlantis to continue, but these both are great series. SG-1 series is done, but movies would be great.

(87) Druid says:

I’m sorry to see it go; I like the idea of a five year project – one of my biggest issues with a lot of SciFi production is there often appears to be a lack of long term vision – something SGU was ahead of the 8 ball on. While from time to time I felt there were weaknesses in the story line, but I got the impression they were intentional that later on these gaps would provide room to expand the story. While I remain a fan of the SG, SG1 did get to the point of “who will capture SG1 this week”. I hope someone picks up the story and it just doesn’t die here.

SGU was not great, ill admit, but we were really starting to get into it. We wanted to like it. I think if SYFY would have let it go on it would have picked up more fans. I agree with a comment above SGU had way too much drama going on, could have been a LIFETIME hit! but it was not bad, i was really interested to see what was going to happen with the whole Code of the Universe/God thing…We are very disappointed..ANd ill jump on the wagon with, Wrestling, really??

(94) Paul McCarthy says:


I’m really disappointed in hearing this. I’m a big Stargate fan.

It did take a little adjustment to get used to SGU… it’s a bit of a different approach to describing reality than the previous Stargate series and movies. But ultimately, IHMO, I think it’s just as valid, and presents quite a creative window on reality and life. Quite unlike, again IMHO, the new interpretation of Star Trek… the newest movie… which I don’t like at all.

I wonder if the SyFy execs might not be getting the entire picture of how many, and who, is watching… For instance, I almost never watch SGU, Warehouse 13, and my other favorite shows on cable TV. I used to watch SGU on Hulu until they started the month delay in posting new episodes, and then I starting watching it on YouTube.

Does anyone know about the other Stargate movies that were in the works before the economic crisis? Is there any word about whether they’re ever likely to be produced?

Can we email, or snail mail, SyFy and tell them we really like SGU and ask them to reconsider their cancellation decision? Does anyone know who we might email, or snail mail to? Is there anyone at SyFy who supports SGU that we might be able to send our emails, and/or snail mails to?

Take care,

Actually the show was canceled due to low viewership. less viewers,less revenue. Just once it’d be nice if networks would set aside greed and let a good show mature.

While I am disappointed at finding SGU is cancelled, due to what it may mean for the franchise, I am at the same time not bothered in the least.

This was not a good show.

Well, let me rephrase that, it was not a good STARGATE show.

The writers and producers seemed to have lost sight of the fact that this was STARGATE: Universe right from the word go. How often is the Stargate even used in this show? Not very.

This show lacked adventure, it lacked excitement, it lacked drive. It was heavy on drama and character relationships, and that is fine in a sci-fi show but when you build your show on an established premise (the Stargates) and then you ignore that underlying premise, what do you have? 90210 in space.

That is exactly what we got. We got all the dark moodiness of ‘BSG’ and all the youth oriented character drama and relationships of ’90210′ et al. But we didn’t get any of the adventure and excitement of ‘Stargate.’

The first season plodded along alienating fans of the previous SG series, seemingly spending more time with body-switching and bed-hopping than with actually doing anything.

The second season showed improvement but I still found myself highly irritated with most of the characters at either their actions or their apparent stupidity. Like Rush finding the bridge of Destiny and then not telling anyone for weeks, and NO ONE figuring it out. They just keep complaining that he never seems to be around. It was poor.

I gave the show a shot. I’ll watch it until it’s done. But I just can’t bring myself to mourn it. I’ll instead mourn for the future of the franchise.

Its amazing how this stupid channel can waste money with seriously retarded TV movies with subjects so surreal and idiotic like a killer ghost indian wolf, a killer cold front, a killer lightning storm and other crap, but kill a show that actually had some content worth seeing.

They should make another retarded tv movie about a killer tv channel that goes around killing innocent things. Maybe the same retarded people that watch their retarded movies can give them the ratings they want, and fully become the retarded channel they aspire to be.

I totally agree with Werewolf & Thom. I’ve been a Science Fiction lover my whole life. I first got hooked as a kid with Leslie Neilsen’s “Forbidden Planet” and the original “The Thing” and am always looking for a good story.

With that in mind. I didn’t want to watch “Soap Opera in Space.” I didn’t like any of the characters and was hoping they’d all get killed and replaced somehow (either catastrophically at once or one & two at a time in each episode). Keep the storyline with the challenges the crew faced “Out There,” not their inner demons. Also, I wanted to be able to watch the show with my children and grandchildren. Save the sex for the chick flicks and the soap opera’s, I wanted unadulterated (sorry for the pun) sci fi.

There’s just nothing out worth watching right now but I can’t believe someone from S.W.’s or S.T. or S.G. won’t fill the void soon. PLEASE!!!

:( it is a very sad sight to see such an amazing show be let go. hopefully ratings will pick back up enough within the last ten episodes and sifi will want to renew the show and if that doesnt happen hopefully another channel will pick up the show and let it continue out the wonderful series for the full five years that was planned on.

Yeah I lost a lot of respect for SGU when they killed off Ginn so quickly. Pretty much confirmed the show was only out for cheap quick drama rather than fully fleshed out and developed stories.

On another note…. wrestling? Really?

Need we remember that the original heart of scifi is indeed the HUMAN element and how they react in the basic instinctive ways under extraordinary situations. Despite being lost in the universe this show remained so grounded, wonderfully acted, gritty and well crafted. I am HOPING and believing that this show will regain numbers/viewers and reactions in the last 10 episodes left as to be saved from the foolish choices that ended dragonfly heroes and many others actually original to the world. (as to werewolf, anyone who utters “fail/you fail” immediately losses the right to call anyone an idiot)

wow… i can’t believe this show has been cancelled. I found it hard to watch a full episode of the other stargate shows because of the predictable lame design… Stargate Universe had everything i wanted in a sci-fi show, awesome acting, great drama and intensity, and a wicked adventure in a curious universe… If this show doesnt get picked up for a third season im going to be really disapointed.

p.s. how could the earlier stargates even compare to this show? This show has everything they had and way more!
epic show, disappointing loss…

(108) HeavyD says:

Such a shame. The story had possibilities. I was drawn in by gems like the episode “Time”, but was highly disappointed when they started putting bows on loose plotlines that could have been left out there for the sake of building the suspense. The way they jumped from “We’re lost out here and scared” to “We’re all getting along and we have a mission” reminded me of the way the tone suddenly brightened on “The John Larroquette Show” way back in the day. Networks should re-examine the pablum that they ladle out and check it for quality before they throw it away. “Fixing” shows to conform to popular formulas have wrecked more than they have saved. It’s a shame economics and integrity so seldomly occupy the same space.

SGU brought something different to the table, and people started whining about it even before the show started. And even afterwards, people still kept whining about how the show didn’t stick with the whole action/adventure feel of the other Stargate shows. But just couldn’t get over the fact that this is a different series, a new story and if the writers brought the same style and feel as the previous SG shows, then that’s not gonna be anything but copying the previous.

Things change, and so does Stargate for that matter. SGU was great, not for the typical action couch bum, but more for the thinking audience. Scyfy should’ve given the show a chance, it was a great idea to show the other side of the story. The show had great actors and an amazing story, it was different but it was so dynamic that the everything was mostly open to suggestion.

I hope another channel picks up SGU and airs the whole series.

SG-1, Stargate Atlantis and SGU have been a big part in my life. I have watch all the episodes and all the extras from all the series. And i can’t figure out why Syfy would like to cancel the show. Why SG-1 became so big and so epic was becouse there were ahead of there time, and you can watch some old episodes of SG-1 and think well the effects aren’t the best but this show is so badass and epic nothing could stop me from watching this. And if just SGU would have run a bit longer, mabey a fanbase would have been made and mabey the show got the support from the fans that it diserved!

Sorry for spelling

I’m still in shock that SGU was canceled. It was my favorite show. I was a bit dubious when it first started, but after starting on episode 4, I was hooked. The plotline of SGU was definitely heavier than any previous Stargate, but that’s what made it different.

I will miss SGU…

I am deeply sad about stargate universe being canceled. First I was one of those fans, being sceptical about the series.
But it developed itself over the first season…

It’s sad that numbers count more than art in these times. It seems a bit like a trend that new science fiction concepts are dropped after one or two seasons like Firefly (which was not on syfy) or SGU.

Hope that Syfy will regain it’s will to experiment and give new concepts a chance over a longer period than just a season or two.

So please give SGU a chance…

I’ve seen all the SGU’s and am catching up on all the SG-1′s and the Sg atlantis series.

Caprica had potential to fill in the blanks of the Cylon uprising to complete the gap before Battlestar. Who wants to see the Ghost Whisperer, Ghost Hunters and wrestling. Fanatasy is one thing but bull#$@% is another. Get real the Sci-fi channel should be for science fiction not BS.

(130) Joshua Woods says:

Sad. I (like some others) only watched the SyFy channel for Stargate. Now I won’t be watching the SyFy channel at all. I didn’t care too much for the touchy feely background garbage though. The first half of season one was bad but then it got much better after mid season. Stargate doesn’t need sex to sell (none of the others ever did) as some have suggested. The problem with this series is that it picked up too slow. By this point in SG-1 they already were fighting battles and facing real immediate challenges (as well as Atlantis). This one is progressing way too slow. The episodes with action are absolutely great, but there are too many episodes that leave very little action. I do like this series and wish it would continue, but it needs something to keep me on the edge of my seat, not feeling sorry for relatives back on Earth who are facing struggles.

The Series started bad. It was all about the drama, which is interesting, develops characters and so on, BUT we watch Science Fiction for something else too. We don’t want to see only inner struggles and how people deal under pressure of being in an alien ship, how they feel alone, even if they can use the damn stones and visit family etc.

The show started badly, it was a breath of fresh air in developing the characters and originality but it went too much on the drama.

Still it’s sad that it’s canceled, it was beginning to be on the right track.(even with all the people leaving the ship and always comeback crap)

January 10, 2011 at 7:27 am
(135) Boban says:

They went too “experimental” with both Caprica and SGU. Caprica had an interesting idea and they wanted to appeal to female viewers but apparently that demographics is not interested in teenager trapped inside a robot and virtual reality. With caprica they had another interesting idea but the constant bickering, backstabbing gets old very soon. And in every SGU episode there was some bitter disappointment or tragic senseless death – all great plot devices but they were used too often.

The push to make everything “dark and gritty” went too far. Maybe that’s what SyFy is just realizing.

The show was poorly written and based in drama. It was not sci-fi it was soap-fi. I do agree that Robert Carlyle did some excellent acting as well as a (very) small few others. The story killed it and I would have to guess that this would be the death of StarGate. I truly hope another sci-fi show soon fills the void but have no expectations of anything in the next 2-3 years.

(142) Alex says:

Syfy does not have show’s on there I really like anymore. I don’t like the fact it doesn’t have many shows that make you actually think “what if” anymore. When SGU first started it was really dry at first, not enough action for me. Overtime, it started to pick up and I could see it’s potential. I think because the show had so many expectations it pissed off the old SG-1 lovers. But even the people that were pissed off they still watched the show and still cared to comment on the discussion boards. If you Syfy people are looking to improve rating, then maybe you should listen to some of the viewer to help improve the quality of the show. After all you’re telling to get us the viewer to watch, and yes it understandable you can’t accommodate everyone but you can at least try.

I think you should make a discussion board or something to make the viewer’s feel as if they have some type of control in trying to “save” a show that has been scheduled to be canceled. I also think if you’re going to cancel a show at least provide the proceeding episodes that won’t air on television on dvd or dvd online or something. Just don’t leave those viewers wanting more of something they can’t have. I think when you do this it builds hatred towards the Syfy channel. Obviously, by me taking the time to try to inform you about opinion, I hate to see SG-U go down the drain. If by any chance this show could be brought back a few suggestion would be to incorporate more action, humor, and “intellect” that viewer can somehow grasp. Although my efforts go to watse commenting on here, I can atleast say I tried.

I’m kinda shocked, really. I thought it was a really good show. My wife, who isn’t a sci-fi fan, actually got into it, and liked it. I can understand why some people left watching it. It did have its slow spots. But like someone said earlier, its about character development. It’s about setting a stage, not about blowing something up, killing some aliens, cheering and repeat. Star Trek TNG was like that at first. They jumped multiple story paths until they found one that finally worked. It worked because people stayed through the rough parts and put up with the retarded one. It also worked because they had company backing them up that believed in it. I’m kinda tired of getting into a series for a season and a half and the network pulls it. Give it a try folks, put it back on!

OMG…the show was unpopular amongst Stargate fans, and although it seems to have a very excited (and very tiny) fanbase, it was cancelled for the same reason all low rated unpopular shows are cancelled.

But the reason it tanked is because the original Stargate fans who are responsible for there being a Stargate franchise to begin with were alienated. We were told:

“If you dont like it then dont watch”.

Thats EXACTLY what we did and the show tanked and was cancelled for low ratings. The ONLY live action Stargate show ever to be cancelled for low ratings. And it delivered the 5 lowest rated episodes in the entire 15-year history of the franchise. It was cancelled for good reason. Im not sorry to see it go.

Perhaps newer writers who want to write STARGATE will come forward a few years from now. These showrunners have lost touch with Stargate and its fans.

It’s really annoying to read comments claiming that all thoose who didn’t enjoy SGU are stupid or at least childish.

Personally I would be glad to see SGU coming for next three seasons, but – at the same time – I realise what was wrong with this series. Too slow pace in story execution, psychodelic (not serious; it’s a diffrence) personal relations and problems, over-melodramatism etc.

Do you really think that: “all our characters suffer from some kind of traumatic experience and let explore that”, is recipe for good drama? That this is seriousness, adult attitude etc.? It’s total misconception

January 13, 2011 at 9:41 pm
(149) brentmsdn says:

They are going to regret this decision. SGU is their best show by far. SGU is my fav show on television right now. Caprica not so much but I was starting to get into the second season right when they canceled.

I’m really disappointed in SyFy channel, they have canceled the only two shows I watch and I actually upgraded my cable just so I could get Syfy channel. The shows they are running now, are stupid and frankly quite boring.

I stopped watching Warehouse 13 after a couple months. It’s basically a kids show. The storylines are so far fetched. I’m not one to believe in Magic so…. PASS.

I was a big Eureka fan for the first two seasons but the storylines are becoming uninteresting. They may as well cancel it as well.

Frankly, they need to keep SGU and add another top level syfy like Galactica or Caprica, the kids stuff they are producing right now is just uninteresting. I’d rather watch Saturday morning cartoons than the remaining programs. WWF on Friday night? Ghost hunters? Who watches such garbage. Shows about fake stuff, real interesting.

Syfy channel, please….. stop feeding the masses of dumb people out there and start producing good quality drama shows again! Is Syfy loosing it or what!

January 13, 2011 at 10:36 pm
(150) brentmsdn says:

What a load of crap this channel. I’m suprised by the number of people that feel exactly like I do about this. I just read about 10 comments that stated almost the same thing. The SG series is why I got Syfy channel, WWF sucks, Ghosthunters sucks. They are cancelling the best shows.

Frankly I was really impressed with SGU from the beginning. I think they nailed it. It’s somewhat gritty like Glactica but not as looney toons. Fairly hard edged drama but at times not so. Good character development, intersting backstories. The technology is cool and the aliens are interesting and misterious. It seems like a good mix to me. Everything is really well done and it’s a real shame to be loosing this show.

Although my wife usually likes to make fun of any Syfy’s I watch, she does so with SGU as well but she will watch if I start them when she is in the room. So it must be good, if she hangs around to watch it.

For the managers that canceled this show, please get your head out of your a** and start doing the right thing, like keeping the smart, entertaining drama’s that have replays in them like SGU, and get rid of the stupid crap shows like WWF and Ghosthunters. These will ultimately damage your brand and reduce viewership. Didn’t anybody teach these execs that 80% of business is usually return business? When your current WWF and Ghoshunter viewership grows up, what syfy’s are they going to watch? I’ll tell you, NONE, because they aren’t watching a Syfy today. They are not watching Syfy channel for syfy. Your eliminating your own viewers. Is the Syfy channel going to be all about Ghosthunting 30 years from now. Are we going to call it the Ghost channel? Well, you should seriously consider that, because that is the direction your heading.

Sgu was my faverate show on tv, I’ve been a loyal sg fan sence the movie came out and its a damn shame that they cancell all the good shows when they just start to get good, I think sg-1 was getting to the best point in its life when it got the ax. It could have gone for tem more years in my opinion. You know, this is the reason people go on shooting rampages. And that’s what I feel like doing now. And all the nay sayers on here wouldn’t know saspence building if it bit them on the ass.

They made same mistake with Caprica and SGU – take a show based on one sf premise and then turn it into some sort of character-based drama and pretty much ignore the original premise (war with cylons or stargate exploration). They might as well made a “stargate” show about two ballet dancers struggling to repay their mortgage.

The original fan base of Stargate was NOT alienated. We were given something new to love. Change is good.
I have watched every episode/movie stargate series had to offer. I was open to SGU and frankly consider it the best installment. They took out the corny. Unfortunately I dont think anyone that can bring SGU back will read my comment. I’m going to go drink now, to the inevitability of the worlds continually dulling taste and intelligence!

Now I finally can watch the show unineteupted I’ve been glued to the suspense and great character developement and magnificent scope of what looks to become the best sg yet, even if Ric Anderson is overweightand only in a couple episodes. For shame syfy, there needs to be more intelectual well produced shows like SGU, warehouse 13 and eureka look like a mid 90 production and havnt gained my interest because of the dodgy sets, makeup etc. For shame.

I was having to make myself TRY to like it at first. I finally decided to see the series through and was about to buy the first season on DVD. I guess since the series is dead and the wife said she couldn’t get into it I might as well forget I started and move on.

Bottom line is it wasn’t all that.

(158) Stargate Forever says:

One of the best shows around. It had a great story, great characters and substance. It’s a sad day to see SGU gone and at the same time meaningless series still going on. That also presents a sad picture about viewers taste these days, too.

quote from steve: “ah well I guess the viewers general intellect is less than what it used to be.”

wholeheartedly agree! people are coming out in droves to suppoort shows like 16 and pregnant or bridezillas to the point where they get spin offs and these so called “realits stars” make millions it makes me sick that the general population is the intelectual equivelent of a 98lb red head with freckes!

While the show’s cancellation isn’t going to kill me.I have to say I really enjoyed it. It really held my interest while it lasted.I’m no sci-fi expert,it’s just goo escapism. For one hour I could lose myself in the what ifs of the show.Like any other show, it was less than perfect but in my humble opinion it was extremely good. To the nay-sayers I say vive la diference! To my fellow fans I say, keep your chins up mates! Perhaps syfy will reconsider their hasy decision.

What a shame, they finally get the show together with action, story line and grit. I get my friends to start watching it and they cancel it….. As good as eureka is it isn’t really my king of space sci-fy….. i hope they reconsider. at least another 1/2 season to see how it goes…

I’m shocked what where they thinking good cast great story line big time sg more serious then previous sg
But many maybe right it was to complicated for the die hard sg fan and i find it starting to slow, so much potential so less explored but for some reason i waited for it every week
It looks like syfy chooses to show simple minded programming
Wat do we have left no more SGU no more Caprica No more BSG keeps getting worse

(165) Wolfy67 says:

Might sound a little harsh but next time i get into a series i will check who’s made it! 2nd time now a realy good series has been cancelled part way through.
SGU was just building up and had a real empathy with the cast just like Defying Grafity.
Shant be watching any new series they put out cos whats the point when there only goin to cancel anyway.
Typical yanks just wanting to see dollar signs.

(169) Fondue says:

We all knew that Science Fiction Channel would be reduced slowly but surely down into a totally profit-oriented venue once NBC spawned the horror that is SyFy.

It began with the addition of that Smackdown thing on Friday nights. It continued with the abrupt axing of Caprica, the addition of two new reality shows and it seems the transformation is now complete with the removal of its last legitimately decent science fiction show, SGU.

This channel is a microcosm of what is wrong with our current society in general. Profit trumps just about everything. Oh well.

I have to agree that it would be something if Showtime picked up SGU. It’s a very good idea. In fact, Showtime has been re-running old episodes of SG-1 (produced originally on Showtime) on Fridays and Saturdays. I think Showtime might actually entertain the idea of picking up SGU.

In a perfect world, a group of investors would put together a new “Science Fiction Channel.” The name is not under copyright thus the horrid SyFy appellation NBC chose. It may not make huge amounts of cash, but it would certainly get by. It would also serve as a venue were quality science fiction both new and old might be shown. This is in a perfect world.

Again, oh well.

January 17, 2011 at 11:40 pm
(170) NotSurprised says:

Honestly this was not a shock. Many of the Save SGA people I know stopped paying attention or they would be here celebrating.

IMO this show was terrible for many of the reasons already commented. I did force myself to watch it for awhile but never did like it. When I was laid up I did finally watch the entire season 1 and a couple epi of season 2 and still don’t care for it. Yet this show was doomed not by the fans from the beginning but from BW himself.

BW knew SGA had a huge following and to actively pursue it’s discontinuation in favor of totally different style should never have been allowed use of the Stargate name. If he would have not tried to mooch off of the SG name he could have started a brand new franchise that might have made it. For years people got used to SG being what it was so to think in the last moment he can change it and draw new viewers was idiotic. Anyone who didn’t care for the first to series would stay away from this and never give it a chance.

That said viewers whom loved SG-1 and SGA many like me tried but it was not the SG we come to love. For this reason BW is mostly responsible for the now upcoming death of the SG franchise.

On the sad side of this I am upset that another series is just going to end with no answers. Like Las Vegas, Legend Of The Seeker, SGA (force and rushed ending) and the list can go on. These shows all should be finished and the proper answers given. The fans all deserve at least a movie to try and tie the loose ends but once again there will be nothing.

January 18, 2011 at 1:01 am
(171) Riverworld Fan says:

Everything that I like gets cancelled or never finished on the SyFy channel. Dresden Files, riverworld, caprica, and now stargate universe. I didn’t catch SGU from the beginning so it was hard to pick up on until I got season one and watched it- after that I was in love! Perhaps if they had replayed the first few episodes more (so that people catching it late could understand what was going on) it would have lasted longer. My husband, son, and I all watched this together- it will be sorely missed!

(175) brianbga says:

I, for one, am shocked that Scify will not continue Universe. As for some comments about the show being too “serious”…well, that’s what I think Scify channel needed. And, maybe this is indicative of the ever-changing culture of this country and it’s tastes.

Universe is the most intelligent science fiction show in a long long time. I’m SICK of the dumbed down writing and story lines that tv keeps dishing out telling everyone it’s steak when it is really bologna.

As for the viewer numbers: I blame Scify Channel for that. They switched airtime and didn’t advertise the show properly. Unfortunately, Universe is linked to a franchise that was often plain goofy.

It’s a shame and I am outraged.

If anyone wants to start a campaign to protest this to the channel, I will be happy to join.

Not only was educative, but progessively intense! It has being a long time since a series like this, would capture my attention. I’m a devoted parent, You know… The hole nine yards!

(177) BrianK says:

Alright, thats it. I’m done.

I don’t like many shows. I turn my television on maybe twice a week if that. After Caprica was cancelled, I was pissed. Now with SGU cancelled, I’m simply done. I’m willing to let a show develop, and to know that I was there on the ground floor, but to see these keep getting cancelled JUST AS THEY GET GOOD is pissing me off.

Even if you come out with a good series at this point, I’m not likely to watch, because if it has enough content and character development to enjoy, you’ll axe it anyway.

Your leadership needs to be replaced. This channel has been swirling around the toilet bowl ever since you changed your name.

(183) Jerry in West Chester says:

I am not surprised that SGU is being dumped. It never clicked with this SG fan. It came across as Voyager meets BSG. One of the things that made SG-1 and Atlantis was the blending of drama, action and comic relief. The writing was always top notch and the characters became our friends. Never happened with Universe.
As far as Showtime picking up Universe, maybe considering they are running SG-1 episodes periodically. Personally, I would rather see them revive Atlantis, or for that part SG-1.

January 20, 2011 at 6:31 pm
(184) Benn says:

Really? They cancelled SGU? After the last 10 episodes I will never have a reason to watch SyFy again, it is bad enough they air wrestling. Of course that is science fiction too.

(185) technoob says:

Actually I’ve been a big fan of both sg1 & sga.I was sorry to see them canceled as well. Sgu has a different look and feel, which was fine by me…So it did click with many an sg fan.However ,I still say there’s room for everyone in the sg family.

January 21, 2011 at 2:03 am
(186) Rod says:

I have to say it is getting rather old. Every time a series comes on that i want to watch like SGU they cancel it. Atlantis never had a proper ending and i can only imagine how bad the ending of this series is going to be. Has syfy ever heard of Closure? I mean im all for cliff hangers but there is almost always a sequel to show a resolution. SG1 got closure but atlantis and SGU dont deserve it? Dont get me wrong i loved SG1 but atlantis and SGU were jus as good if not better. I really hope showtime picks up this series because i would love to see more episodes of this. You cant expect every fan of SG1 to be loyal to SGU if they cut atlantis short, and 2 seasons is a far cry from a fair chance. I jus dont see how eureka had better ratings, I’ve watched it and it seems like a kid show to me. I guess i jus dont know a good series…………

January 21, 2011 at 12:19 pm
(187) Jason says:

Very disappointed. I do a search to find out when the rest of season 2 is going to start, only to find that it has been canceled!

I’m not sure, given this information, that I will watch the rest of the season 2. Knowing there will not be any closure and that whatever story they develop will just end, well, doesn’t appeal to me.

Like others, I’m also confused and dismayed that wrestling is being aired on the channel now. That, IMO, is for the Spike TV’s of the world, not SyFy. (Typing that reminded me that we should have known about the demise of the channel when they started calling it by that.)

January 22, 2011 at 11:42 pm
(188) Dam says:

I have to agree with some of the others…that this incarnation of Stargate was fantastic in it’s writing, and that apparently some people just want mindless stories with lots of fighting and explosions. I was drawn to this Stargate even more than the others (of which I was and remain a huge SG fan of SG-1 and Atlantis) because of the change in direction from typical “send in the MALP and then follow up” stories that make up the majority of the first two series.

This show gave had WAY more potential in the possibilities of character development and the dynamics between the characters. So much they could have done with these fantastic characters and their awesome actors.

Such a shame to see it dumped so early in.

(189) Samantha says:

I was so saddened to hear that SGU is canceled. I just finished watching all of the episodes available. I love this show and have been a fan since the start of SG-1. If Showtime were to pick it up, I would definately subscribe just for this show.

RIP SGU, you will be missed.

January 24, 2011 at 6:36 am
(190) Mari says:

At least they had a nice wrap-up with Caprica. Are these latest cancellations because Sy-Fy is now owned by NBC? ABC has axed so many show without giving them a chance to wrap up that I no longer watch anything on ABC. Dr. Who, Being Human, Torchwood, and Primeavl are British, and Sancuary is Canadian. So far the dumbing-down of America hasn’t caught on in Britain!

(192) scifi says:

@technoob: As I said in the article, the cancellation takes effect after the remaining ten episodes air. Since those episodes were already mostly complete, the amount of change that could be made to them will be minimal, but there will probably be some alterations to the finale.

I just loved SG1, SGA, and all of the accompanying movies. I have bought all of the dvd’s and I also got my whole family interested in the whole franchise.I think I haved watched every episode at least five times or more (thats a lot of wasted time). I tried really hard to watch SGU, but it is just not the same. It seems like an entirely different series. Nevertheless, it is Stargate, so I just have to watch. I was hoping that it would get better and it seems like it has, until now. I have always liked the SciFi, or now SyFy (lame name change) channel. Now I have no reason to watch this network, just like NBC, ABC, and FOX, it has done away with any shows which show even a little bit of imagination to replace them with reality shows and other crap. I like to watch Sci Fi shows to get away from reality, because reality sucks, and so do reality shows.Why would I, or anyone else, want to watch the same arguing whining in real life on my TV??? Too many good shows have gone down the tubes because of bean counters and beauracracies. With this cancellation goes the whole Stargate franchise, never to be heard from again. This is just like when they cancelled Firefly in its first season thanks to shortsighted, small-minded FOX execs, which I am just now getting over (and that is a whole other rant). To quote Bart Simpson “TV sucks”.

Well, CRAP just when you get a really good show that can actually GO WHERE NO SHOW’S GONE BEFORE you drop it. You didn’t even give it a fighting chance. At least this has some potential. They could have gone ANYWHERE and done ANYTHING!!!! It certainly has more going for it than BattleStar Galactica or Eureka. Such a shame the powers that be can’t see what we really want. Vampires…Give me a break. At least Stargate Universe is plausible! So sad, so sad! You dumb dumb duffus high muckety mucks! JM

(198) G-Money says:

I live in Canada. Have a busy schedule. I figured that SGU was on a mid season break… again. Just went online to find out when it was coming back on and found out my favorite show was canceled. This sucks that the morons that generate the ratings for the mindless crap on the tube now-a-ways, mean the death to yet another greatly written and acted shows like SGU. Small cult followings tend to grow to mainstream support when the show is awesome. Arested Development anyone? Some jerk decided once again that 1,000% profit aint enough. Seriously, business 101: QUALITY not quantity! I really hope that another network picks it up.

(201) Roger says:

Thats too bad SGU is cancelled. Its actually the show i watch on syfy now. I guess since the last SG show will disappear why not the whole SyFy go away there will be nothing else to watch. NCIS is another very cool show. So if u guys in SyFy reading this, u guys got no more viewers so go home and beat ur selfish tiny brains with my nail gun!!!

Some people thought Star Gate Atlantis was bad, but SG1 & Atlantis was great compared to S.G.U. I watched 1/2 of the 1st season of S.G.U & I found S.G.U sucked.

I loved the Stargate series and this SGU was better than Alantis. I hated Caprica and warehouse 13; i could not relate to any thing in either show. SGU was developing into a great series-them greedy bean counters is right. I hope another network picks it up. V sucks and so did the first V series-I am watching and find it difficult to continue. Sanctuary really hasn’t taken off until this past season. I am disappointed in Sci-fi network and fail to find any reason that wrestling should be on this network. Someone should take over this network and kick the people in charge out; ps they could get a job on WWF or whatever it’s called. Is there any hope???

January 27, 2011 at 3:50 pm
(206) Ian W says:

Sad to see it go just as it starts to be a proper SG show…it’s starting to get there. But, frankly, it’s been pretty awful compared to the earlier and better SG1 and Atlantis shows for most fans I feel. The writers really fouled up and landed the show with a bad initial uptake of viewers due to a dull, slow storyline without action and a confusing storyline at times. Ultimately, it’s getting what it deserves!

I can’t believe you actually like warehouse 13… it’s horrible, I watched a whole season, and wanted to puke afterwards.. well perhaps, for idiots like you, it’s just the thing you need.

(216) Jamal says:

Though sad, the cancellation of SGU is not surprising. I remember that in response to all the bitching of diehard SG1 and Atlantis fans, the SGU writers said that SGU was “a new style of story-telling.” The problem, to me, is that although this new, slowly-evolving storyline might have proved better, the acual presentation of the story remained the same–it was continuously interrupted by advertisements and network hiatuses that prevented the building and maintenance of momentum. I eagerly watched Season 1 (for half the first season) waiting for something to happen, but it never seemed to. But then, after Season 1 was complete, I watched all the episodes back-to-back, and decided it was GREAT. Because of the network’s delivery, I am waiting until all of Season 2 has been aired before watching any of its episodes. Sy-Fy Channel, it is a new era of television viewing–get with the program or die!

I’m really quite bummed by this. IMO, poor choice. Dark, unpredictable, gritty Sci-Fi is rarely appreciated. Yet it is always remembered, perhaps cherished, longer than happy-go-lucky Zena-like Comedy-Fi like Atlantis (which I did enjoy, but this kicks its @ss).

This show was a change for the better, SG1 and atlantis were entertaining but had shotty special effects and boring low-brow humour. SGU came along with its compelling storyline, great acting and holywood style special effects. its pretty obvious from majority of comments i have read from around the web that the old slack jawed SG fans cant comprehend the storyline, the acting is to complicated for them and the special effects must inflame their senses to quickly…………thanks for killing one of the best shows i have seen in a long time…..maybe syfy will pickup a lowbudget, redneck attracting startup to replace it

(222) StargateFanForever says:

I have been a long time fan of the Stargate franchise. I have seen every episode and most of them on the original air date. as well as all the movies. I know that to some the style they were pushing for SGU was not one that was enjoyable. I however, and I assume many others, enjoyed the change from the normal paradigm they followed in the other series. Granted they were trying to have more relation between the different characters within the show, and through those relationships they were hoping for more relation between the show’s cast and the viewers. Something that was hard to do with the fast paced action that was filling the story of the previous series. They also wanted to move from story lines that covered only one episode with only a small amount of story carrying on to the next episode. IN SGU you could say that each season is its own episode that is devided into portions of smaller climaxes that led up to a larger climax near the end of the season. I hope that someone here changes their mind or that another channel buys the rights. I pray for Showtime to be the ones that do!

I’m a Swedish dude that never picked up the prior SG series SG1 and SG Atlantis, I’ve seen a couple but I never got in from the start. An episode here and one there was enough for me to avoid them as a kids show,(aimed at 8-16 yrs) or something. But then SGU came along and I had the chance to follow it from start. I liked the acting, the story and the mystery, yes it was a lame ending and story of the ending of season 1, but it picked itself up quite well in season 2. Now Xmas holidays are over and I’ve been waiting for the show to continue. Now I found out that the show is cancelled and one wonders what it takes for the US population to be entertained. It surely isn’t an intellectual or mind craving series that has to make the audience think and feel. Nooo, give us something like Warehouse 13, with it’s BAD acting and child like level of entertainment. Eureka is another mind dulling series that is pretty much the same episode over and over with a little tiny difference. Not even the change in season 4 helps out, it still feels like I’ve seen it before. SGU brought a feeling of excitement and mystery that was lacking in any other of the series.

But then again, the motto must be, if they can’t cram the most of a series, cancel it and pray that the audience catches the next one. My main concern is, if SYFY and other channels dare to jank a series in the middle of like they did Caprica, who dares to invest any time and emotion in a new series? It could be pulled in the middle of it all just because the ratings isn’t as top notch as Series X and Y had 10 years ago. Well times change, with so many things to choose from, try to find a smaller audience but invest in them a little bit more. It could pay off in the end, if you dare to try.
I hope that the series may live on, on another channel whom dare to invest in a smaller audience….

The running theme for networks today is to create great new SiFi programs, sell Season One and possibly Season Two episode and then pull the show off the air

I don’t understand people today. I loved Stargate from the moment my dad and I saw the movie when I was a kid. he may have shied away but I have stayed a true fan never leaving it. When I first saw the trailer for SGU it seemed like a dream come true. To have my child hood last a few more years. I can only hope that enough people see its potential and demand it be brought back, and SyFy needs more dramas. I like the the shows that it has but most seem to make fun of them selfs too much. As if to say SyFy us a joke. SG-1 did a wonderful thing for the genre and SGU can continue to do that.

I will be boycotting Syfi Channel and the NBC / Universal in future as they are basically market lead idiots where so called ratings are the name of the game. I would strongly suggest that SGU goes to a subscription download service which I would gladly pay as hate watching it on the TV with all those mindless, bulls**t and misleading adverts that try to suck the commonsense from your brain for rubbish you don’t need or really want, drives me up the pole.
I see there are numerous petitions out there of which are mostly scams to get you email and friends list from Social Networks like FACEBOOK and spam them with them with more rubbish etc’.
May start my own online petition against NBC/ Syfy for there stupidity and short sighted actions on clearly the best Sci-Fi show out there aimed truly at an adult audience for once.

(230) Charles says:

What SGU lacked is a sense of adventure for me, I am and have been loyal viewer but honestly this show wasn’t up to par with SG1. They focused too much on survival and the emotional state of the crew, it reminds me of all the SG1 episodes where they were suck on earth doing some mission and I dreaded them because there were adventures on other worlds and I couldn’t wait for the next one. SG1 and most of SG: Atlantis had that in common, and that is what SGU lacks for me, it’s a soap opera in space I suppose. Simply not enough action and adventure, I do understand the idea of progressive story lines and shows of that nature but no one cared how much the SGC spent on bullets or how much paper work Hommand had to do, they wanted to see guns going off, running for your life, new alien races, adrenaline pumping, near death, leaning forward in your chair, what will happen next adventure!

A real and true shame SGU was cancelled, but essentially it will be SyFy’s loss.
SGU was the only SG series that I really liked !
SGU definitely had a loyal fanbase and so SyFy should have seen that: by giving the series more publicity exposure not only would they be able to capture a large amount of fans but also they would succeed in capturing those fans for an extended period of time ! (eg: 5 yrs)
On this account I think SyFy is being quite shortsighted and not tapping into SGU’s full potential – at all !
Who’s willing to pick it back up and hit a home run ?

Stargate Universe was a breath of fresh air. Stargate Universe brought the Stargate saga out of the dumps from Stargate Atlantis. I think Stargate Universe has a fantastic story line and I looked forward to it coming on each week. I could forsee the story even evolving into something even greater than it is right now. It could really go in many directions if they would give it a chance. It has room to grow! I wish it would continue for many seasons.

Warehouse 13, Being Human, and Haven should have received the axe by now. They are terrible shows.

Over a season has passed and all the planets they have visited have been boring and no advanced alien technology has been discovered,which I find boring due to the fact they’re living on an advanced alien Ancient space-ship. So far we have seen more advanced alien technology on forbitten planet, and here I thought the Ancients were over a million years our predecessors
Common pull your heads out, fire those idiots,make real si,fi get some writers that know how to write sci fi action,hey Scotty beem me up and put the series back on the air and make some money.

Why would they take a niche show (that is what SciFi is suppose to be about) and put Caprica (lost me after 6 episodes) and SGU against NCIS and NCIS — LA what the hell did they expect would happen!!!!

And to run WRESTLING on Friday nights where SGU was doing well…..WRESTLING…….WRESTLING…….WRESTLING…. Really!!! Fiction….. Yes Science Fiction I DON’T THINK SO

WOW! WOW! WOW! I cant believe this show didn’t get any better ratings? I was really enjoying the series. There was more action happening up to its break.. But to critique the show there was not that much action throughout the two seasons. Unlike SG1 and SG Atlantis which seemed to be one big action pack series. There were little alien encounters nor action packed battles.. But as a SG fan I continued to look for other enjoyable moments like the mystery behind the ships true purpose

Stargate Universe is perhaps one of the most amazingly well written science fiction shows of all ages!… IT IS A TERRIBLE WASTE to cancel this show… However, on the other hand, I will make a request to the writers (if they will ever read this):

-If you can no longer continue to make this as a TV show, please make a BOOK SERIES…. Do NOT kill this awesome story!
Don’t make a movie either… they are too short for the amount of information and complexity of this stargate.

Since the beginning, i have collected the original movie, all 10 seasons of SG1, 5 Seasons of SGA, and the first season of the SGU series, Continuum, Ark of Truth, and Children of the Gods (SG1 Seasons 1/Episode 1 Remake) and still plan on adding Season two SGU to my collection. It is a shame they brought the axe down. Syfy needs to reconsider this decision. Life does go on, but after seeing all the lame shows put up on Saturday nights, i cant bear to watch those shows. Well if they dont reconsider, i guess, Syfy will lose some more fans altogether. The Stargate franchise was always great line of shows, Could have done 10 seasons of each Show. Atlantis and Universe. About 30 years of great ideas. Peace.

February 1, 2011 at 2:54 am
(248) John says:

I have to say that as a longtime Stargate SG-1 fan, I’m not surprised SGU got cancelled (or Atlantis for that matter). Like Atlantis, it centers on a character that is unsympathetic and unlikable (McKay) unlike SG-1 which was a true ensemble. Whereas all the characters in SG-1 were likeable, in SGU none of the characters were.

Starting with the commander, who seemed not up to his job, to his second in command, who was too emotional and immature for his position. Then there was the lead scientist with his own unknown agenda, to the whiz kid, who was whiny and questioning about everything (aka Rodney McKay), and so on. No leader like O’Neill, no second like Carter, no support like Teal’c or Jackson.

So, while I’ll miss having the Stargate world on tv, I won’t miss SGU. I certainly won’t miss yelling at my tv when the characters did stupid things! That’s my take on it anyway.

Seriously? I’m hardly a fan of sci-fi since it revamped its entire channel years ago and just when I thought I would give it a shot after nearly 10 years of ignoring this channel when surfing, it decides to axe a show I wanted to take interest in. Thanks alot, SyFy (wth?)! Maybe next time, if you’re going to put a show on, let it be on for more than 3 years….sheesh.

February 1, 2011 at 10:29 am
(250) Lord Ba'al says:

Well I thought I would throw my 2 cents in on the pile. SG-1 and SGA both developed the characters while at the same time providing some action for the storyline. SGU went off the beaten path to spend more time developing the characters at the expense of action..commendable but as a result took too much time to rev up into high gear and thus the axe.
As a loyal SG follower, I watched SGU every week hoping for a little faster pace which never came until the last few episodes so I am not surprised as I was dissapointed week after week with the story line. It was like the writers were developing a story for a novel where you can spend the time developing a character in depth…not so much for the television world I guess.

I hope this reopens the door for SG Atlantis revival or movie!
I can last only so long on re-runs.

(251) Paz says:

Extremely gutted. This was the best SG series to date, and IMHO was one of the best sci fi series ever.

But then again, I read alot about string theory and space research. So this series really hit home with the high level thinking. The plot was thickening in such a lovely way as well. I didnt mind that there were quite a few slow character drama episodes. At least it wasnt as bad as how the Star Trek series were getting towards the end. It was like gouging my eyeballs out with a fork.

(252) RustyShackleford says:

I kind of disagree with you on this. McKay was at least likable and funny with his whiny and cocky attitude. Like a milder version of Dr. House. The kid from SGU was just whiny and nothing more.

(253) Purluc says:

I can say that I enjoyed SGU and I can only point out that the the Long mid season breaks and the bouncing time slot had to have been a contributing factor in its demise. And thos factor are SF’s fault.

February 1, 2011 at 10:51 pm
(254) 4Aces says:

My thoughts:

SG1 – good for first 7 seasons and then mediocre.

Atlantis – Good first season then mediocre but much lighter tone, not nearly as serious as SG1. This made it more accepted, and fairly well received given its lower, overly dependent on CG, budget (compared to SG1). They canceled it when they realized that they could make 2 hour episodes (they call movies) that generate a much higher profit margin.

SGU – Mediocre from the start but getting better. The major problem was one of budget. This was not only shot on a shoestring that makes the other two look like extravagant overspending. It was so low of a budget that they had to shoot it mainly with hanycams. The Keno was just a gimmick to cover up how much handycam footage is used.

I know someone is going to try an rail against this so proof first:

1) Canadian actors get 1/3 – 1/4 of American scale. A recent attempt to get our Government to correct this was ignored since the Government wants more Hollywood tax dollars. Forcing them to be reasonable would mean they cannot pay themselves multi-million dollar bonuses every year. As well all know, Hollywood cannot accept that. I mean, the have luncheons, talk to people, and occasionally read a script. That deserves a million dollar bonus right there.

2) B.C. and Toronto offers gigantic tax incentives to film crews that even Arnold could not match when he tried to bring Hollywood back to C.A.

3) The hanycams, remember? That really cuts down on production costs. Three people with handcams is about the same as one $100K production level camera with a steady-rig.

4) The sets. Aside from a few trips to different B.C. locales, SGU was mostly done on the same 6 (or so) sets (in the ship). No new sets, or constant trips outside (like with both SG1 and Atlantis) means no new costs.

5) The timing. Initial actor signings are limited for the first two years – ‘to establish the brand’. The third year is when you really get Hollywood money. So canceling before season 3 make a lot of financial sense. Though Robert Carlyle probably signed on with a proper contract from day 1.

6) Finally, the bane of all sentient viewers. It is much easier and profitable, to continually launch new shows than it is to continue existing ones. Origin stories are easy to write, since there is no continuity or character development to worry about. Viewer ratings are generally much higher (2X for the first half of the first season at least) than the show would normally have. Once people get a feel for what the show is about, then they decided to stay or leave. This generally takes 3 to 6 episodes, which is why it is so rare for a series to be canceled in the first 3 (though this last season saw quite a few).

So what we see is an endless stream of new series that are hyped as ‘the best show in the world – ever!’ for one season. Then they are dumped to a new time slot, with 1/3rd the budget, and then the Network can say “oh, it was all about the ratings”, when they cancel it before season 3.

The best thing, is that they all lie when they do it. They lie with the ratings they show. You see, they all claim that they cannot monitor or monetize (make money) from the episodes that you download directly from their website. So all of you who download from them are not counted.

If you do a little digging (as I have in the past with a few networks – CBS is the worst for this) you can find them telling investors that they can track every download, and have these episodes monetized (advertisements you are forced to see on the page, or to watch before the episode starts). Since it is a criminal act to lie to investors, you can guess to whom they are lying.

I am sure that if I could gain access to the online number of viewers of SGU, we would find that the domestic ratings are much stronger (2X is my experience), and then there is the international ratings which they never seem to count. Assuming that there is only a minor bump from internet viewers, SF is easily generating a 2:1 profit margin (for every $1 spent, $2 is made). The problem is that Hollywood wants 5:1 (minimum). SF usually settles for 3:1 but have been getting much greedier over the last few years (thanks NBC!).

The worst part is that we cannot do anything except to make sure we watch any shows that come from them via an online service that does not directly feed their greed. There are many legal, online sites around the world that allow you to bypass them and their lies. Only do this if you have no shows that you really care about, since canceling the network endangers any show they produce. But by doing so, eventually some of these networks will finally be forced into admitting their uncapped greed is unsustainable and will settle for a 3:1 or 2:1 profit margin.

Either that, or someone with better business sense and some decency will step in and launch a new network dedicated to long-term shows with dedicated fans (and dedicated profits that more than cover production costs – not to mention syndication).

ROFL – SF Wrestling. Oxymoron or False Advertising? Both!
Technically anyone paying for that channel can contact your Governmental Regulatory Agency/Department and demand a rate reduction since their description precludes non-SF shows. If you pay for a service, then you have the right to expect that service. If they fail to provide part of it, then you are entitled to pay less. It may only be $0.50 / month, but it is applied to everyone automatically, so $0.50 X 3 million viewers X 12 months = real money (and money is the only thing they care about).

Rant over. I feel better now. ;)

(255) Robert says:

SG:U is/was the among the most realistic shows television has to offer, even when compared to non sci-fi shows. It throws me beyond appalled to find NBC Universal’s numbers dropped so low that this is the show they decide to pluck. I suppose it’s not surprising, though. Whenever a tasteful and well thought out sci-fi series manages to arise, networks are quick to drop it back into darkness. One most recent example is the 2002 series Firefly: All original background story, valid theoretical sciences, and commendable acting. But only a half dosen episodes in and their out. The reason for this dismal trend seems to be found in the over-all masses. Vaguely put, most people fear they might take the science fiction genre too seriously. But if it’s deliberately cheesy in a formula we’ve grown accustomed to (star trek’s hippy drone elves in space), there is a sense of familiarity and grounding which makes it okay to watch. In short: SG:U is just way ahead of it’s time.

(256) Joshua says:

Can’t believe such powerful writing and convincing acting would pick up such a small fan basis. I’m betting half the people who watch this show are smart enough to know how to download a copy and watch it on their own time. Too bad Syfy can’t add the number of people watching the torrentz into it’s ratings. I bet it would pass then.
This is definitely one of the best sci-fi shows of all times and it’s looking at only getting 2 years of air-time. Foolishiness. With the ever dwindling quality of tv shows, what will my wife and I ever find to watch now?

Dear NBC Uni/ScyFy –
I doubt you will read this comment. Maybe someone will someday read this comment and forward it to you. When they took original Star Trek off the air prematurely, letters were written to keep it on the air. Today, letters are deleted by SPAM filters – and there isn’t any time in the fast moving world of big business to hear out the commoner.

Please hear this:

SGU is an unripe fruit that needs more time on the tree. The cast is phenomenol. They need better writers. Are you telling me in the universe – we cannot come up with a story line?

Many on this board want to see this show go on. I guess you want me to watch the drivel that takes too long to even get into it. Can you say – the event?

Yes – Caprica failed because your writers were to much interested the long story that they failed to bridge the story even a little bit. A mere suggestion that someday we would understand – wasn’t enough.

However with SGU – the universe is your oyster. How about rolling up your sleeves and give us what we want, instead of creating disposal shows and storylines. Stop worrying about how to pay for your high end vehicles and toys, and take this show back to the fans.

Very sincerely,

North Chelmsford MA.

With a rating of 0.5 – it was doomed. To be honest I wont miss it. But I did watch every episode. On a scale from 1-10 – I gave it a 6. It was improving but, after the move to Tuesdays (being tied to Caprica – a series that should have been just a movie) , the negative vibes from it didnt help SGU.

I do agree with critics of THE STONES – that was one of the biggest worst plot devices ever. It was just way of getting SG-1 cast members on SGU as special guest stars. It would have been far better to have a few cast members of SG-1 and Atlantis on board destiny – Daniel Jackson would have really livened things up. Along with Carter. They should have be completely cut off from Earth – at least until the end when they would go home.

Now there will be nothing on Syfy worth watching (as far as new programming). They should change the name again to Ghost Network – Ghost Whisperer, Ghost Hunters, Ghost Hunters International ,ect. When they changed the name from Scifi to Syfy, I had a bad feeling about the direction they were headed. Its like when MTV removed the music videos.

SGU is more enjoyable to watch than SG-1 and Atlantis. Sorry, but serialistic sci-fi shows > episodic.

It’s a pity that Syfy moved the show to a less-frequented timeslot, and pretty much put the final nail in the coffin. Not really sure why Syfy gave up on a show that could have been the channel’s front-runner in another season or two. Stargate, the franchise, is mega-popular. Any stargate show will be popular, given time to grow into it’s own. To cancel a show so early in its life leads me to believe that Syfy is having money troubles due to the declining US economy, and they just put up all the least-watched shows on their schedule for the chopping block. Like I said, given a couple more seasons, SGU could have become the currently most-watched sci-fi show on television. The scope of the show is so broad that it could have gone as long as SG-1 in seasons. The show was very creative and the characters are meaningful. Much more so than SG-1 and Atlantis.

Seems like every tv series I get hooked on gets prematurely canceled. I guess my taste in television is unique?

Okay…let me break it down.

I have seen every single episode of SG1.
I have seen every single episode of Stargate Atlantis
I have seen every single episode of SGU
I have seen every Stargate Movie
I have seen every Stargate Cartoon.

It is very disturbing to see SGU cancelled.
I think the choice for them to move the overall plot very slowly was a bad move although it did provide a certain aspect of quality. Smallville was able to do it, but you can’t quite do that with SGU where there are so many characters.

Oh well….hopefully we ill be surprised and the executives change their mines.

Overall, I believe the SkyFly channel was gone down hill.

STAR TREK /STAR GATE / OR ANY STAR QUALITY show provides us with such entertainment.

Hopefully, SGU will be that zombie to come back to life some how.

It’s sad that it comes down to money. I’ve seen all the shows and movies in this franchise and SGU was slowly gaining speed. People need to be patient and the networks need to get their heads out of their a$$es. There are clearly loyal fans throughout the world and this is a big mistake. SG1: 10 years, SG Alt: 5 years, SGU 2 years, will the next attempt be 6 months before they just give up?

What killed SGU, is the same load of crap that ended “the new” Battlestar Galactica (garbage) series. TOO MUCH internal conflict between the characters…TOO MUCH in fighting and drama! They finally get a decent series (Caprica) going and now they want to axe it and bring back the crap series Battlestar Galactica?!? hey Syfy…first mistake, changing your name, second mistake…stop assuming what makes a good series is hot women and tons of in fighting between the characters!
SG1 had good writers that came up with good plots and “gasp” very little to no in fighting between the characters…starting to get the idea yet Syfy? I often wonder what goes through the minds of the college educated programmers at these cable channel companies and how it is they keep missing the mark…could it be they don’t actually listen to the fans and think they know what the fans want….obviously for some series is isn’t working. Nuff said.

Stargate universe was my favorite show it actually made you think, unlike the garbage the networks usually air, I do not know how inferior (badly cast, badly written, and badly directed shows) shows keep being renewed but the cream of the crop of show shows is axed I say fire the critics! And renew stargate! If syfy does not renew stargate, I hope another network picks it up. If not I hope they star start a new stargate show.

(266) David says:

What are they thinking the story started slow but keeps picking up it’s pace. I haven’t been this interested since SG-1. They have to get the contract picked up somewhere. The author of this article has it bang on. Too much potential to get cancelled

(267) Ronny S says:

F-SyFy and their ignorant crew of morons. I am so sick and tired of getting attached to an awesome show, just to have it cancelled. Sell the rights to some other broadcasting station so we can live the 5 year journey. And bring back Star Trek Enterprise you goat ropers!!! One more cancellation of a great show and I am going to boycott you jack wagons!!!!

(268) Nateliss says:

You know its funny how second rate shows like Warehouse 13 makes the cut.
The stargate Fanbase has been supporting the frachise for well over 12 years now and to drop SGU just as it was getting really exciting is discusting!

Our need to feed our imaginations will suffer with this loss!
Maybe they should have put a little more effort into promoting the series!

Please someone pick up the series!!!

You just have to look at this blog to see how many people are comitted to this series!!
We will be left wanting!!!

(269) Kafrilas says:

Ohhh! Justice is served at last!

This was the crapiest SG series ever. I doubt the producers can do worst.

This means that now there will be some empty space for a potential quality sci-fi series on…. um… syfy.

Caprica is done too!!!!! Hooray! I couldn’t be happier!

(270) Kayla says:

I’m not a big fan of SGU but its sad to see it go especially when they still have Ghost Hunters and wrestling on Syfy, which are decidedly not Scifi shows but I guess that’s why they changed their name. I wish they would bring back some quality Scifi shows, and not just cancel them.

(271) technoob says:

I like every sci fi fan love a good space battle with great special effects and such. However,I don’t see anything wrong with letting a good story develop over time.That,s SGU. To me It,s like reading a great book. It,ll take some time investment,but the pay-off will be worth it in the end. We’ve been spoiled by the whiz-bang slam-bang thank you ma’am and hurry up storylines. We need to get back to basics and wait for a good storyline, like SGU and you’ll see how it”ll pay off big in the end. Incidentally I do enjoy greatly the cool special effects on SGU.

SGU is the ONLY show I watch every week and PVR. I haven’t watched a sci fi show since the original SG. I am crushed! I loved the story line and the real characters. Not too many aliens for the average viewer. I find it just believable enough to keep me watching and waiting for more! So crushed.

(275) K says:

In my four decades on the planet, never once have I sat down to write a letter to a network, to a band, to a movie star, or any other entity involved in producing entertainment I enjoyed.

Until now.

Tonight, I wrote two letters: one to Mark Stern (NBC/Syfy) and one to Charles Cohen (MGM). I wrote them to tell them how exceptional Stargate: Universe is in my eyes to compel me to take time out of my busy schedule to try to convince them to keep it alive.

They’ll probably never see the letters, but some staff member might be opening them and keeping a tally. I hope they’ll see “Woman in the 18-to-49 demographic with disposable income.” I hope they’re interested in retaining me as a viewer.

Why? Because that’s the only Syfy show I watch. If they get rid of SG:U, I’ll have no exposure to their advertisers at all.

Why? Because the show has one of the strongest ensemble casts I’ve ever seen. Their performances enhance the character-driven writing, especially Robert Carlyle, who is phenomenal.

Why? Because it’s the best science fiction show on television right now, and it deserves a chance to build an audience.

I haven’t been this upset about a show’s cancellation in almost a decade. I really have to wonder about Syfy’s direction. Some said that the name change was a move to appeal more to women, to make it “softer.” *eye roll* Well, hey, I’m a woman, and while I’m not interested in soft, I’m letting you know that you have a show that appeals to me. If the channel is really trying to change its demographics, canceling SG:U seems to be the wrong move.

(276) an observer says:

Sadly … here is the same fate as Defying Gravity.

A series that starts out slow and then builds.

The money is in the re-runs. When it builds later, THEN everyone will get onboard and want to see the beginning episodes.

But today the business schools turn out morons as executives. So much for the MBA classes of 1990-something.

Let me get this straight… they’re canceling a true scifi series in favor of the stupid reality crap like “Ghost Hunters?” And what, in God’s name does WWE have to do with science… fiction, to be sure, but there is absolutely nothing scientific about it. Good thing they changed the name of the network.

February 5, 2011 at 2:46 pm
(280) yan says:

the story line of this show started slow(quite slow actually) but get more and more interesting, now in the middle of the second season, i’m completed hooked. i’m sure the show will get better and better as the story goes on, it’s really short sighted that syfy canceled this show with so much potential to become a greate series.

warehouse 13 is an entertaining show, but it cannot compare to the production of SGU.

i’m wonder maybe SGU cost too much to make comparing to other show, and ratings don’t justify the cost.

Para mi esta ha sido la mejor seríe de Ciencia Ficción hasta la fecha.. asumo que quienes somos fans de Stargate esperamos con mucha paciencia la evolución de la serie SG1 con el pasar de los años, SG Atlantis, fue para mi una distracción… pues mi cariño estuvo siempre con el SG1.. pero cuando salió SGU me dio la impresión que Stargate iba a sobrevivir… Destiny es para mi una de las mejores naves.. me encanta.. y aunque la historia iba tal vez un poco lenta al inicio.. se puso muy interesante.. la disputa entrel el coronel y Rush era genial… y Rush como tal se robaba el show.. me encantaba ver como las decisiones tenian su lado racional y emocional….. que pena que estemos en una era de locos.. de canivales.. donde todo se mide en función del dinero.. Digamos que tal vez la historia no enganche lo que se esperaba.. pero a mi criterio SGU es la mejor serie de cincia ficción hasta la fecha. SYFY.. que decepción…

(282) Pax says:

Just found the thread here and I am gutted that such a great piece of Sci fi is getting the boot. They did an awesome job of not making the “gate” a focus, not making “off world” missions a regular occurrence in order to save a buck on visuals – we’ve been there done that. I think they had the right approach, and after a first series of dealing with the reality of the situation, they nicely moved on to the derelict space ship and aliens. And not one time have they discovered that “oh the universe is populated with humans who happen to speak great english” no – they did it right, aliens were aliens, looked like aliens, spoke like aliens and did weird alien stuff to us. C’mon guys, this is exactly what sci fi should be about – especially derelict space ships at the ass end of the universe. The only complaint I really had was the acoustic kum-by-ya random songs – stick with the deep space keyboard vibes and you cant lose the atmosphere. But why am I even writing this? Will it bring the show back? Will they go with my idea for a planet that is truly inhabited by space giants? Maybe it could be the guys who carved Easter island… bye bye SGU :(

February 6, 2011 at 1:11 am
(283) JoeW says:

SGU was dreck. Too many characters, too little humor. I am glad they put it out of it’s misery. It’s funny that for the mythos SG had amassed, the idiot producers decided to make a sequel to BSG, based on Star Trek:Voyager. It was so bad as to be physically painful to watch.

Scifi always cancels the good shows before thery have a chance to mature, to bad they dont do the same with their movies. Why don’t you quit making all the cheesy Scifi Originals and put that into simething like SGU? Everytime I see Scifi Original I turn the channel cause I know it’s gonna be crap.

First of all may i say this is such bull,SG-1,SGA,and SGU where stories that depicted the fraction of the truth of whats REALLY going on in reality.I’m so disappointed with the programming excutives for cutting the veiwer out of the loop when 2012 is quickly approaching.Second of all I have wonder if keeping information from the public is considered an act of terroris? If so can the programming excutives be sent to GETMO? Then we may get your syfi channel back to the programming that as made us lifetime veiwers. To the cast of SGU, peace out and good luck with your careers from the wind that gaurds the underworld.

While the good shows get canceled we as viewers are constrained to watch reruns of old shows ,so old smoe viewers wernt even born. The companies nee to get a grip of reality as we ,as viewers will sotp watching the dam box after all we pay for the channels for enteretainment and the companies pay for the commericals, what will they sell if we stop watching. Humm maybe we should what would they do then, sit and watch all the numbers go to hell.

(289) Trib says:

If everyone is tired with the writers of the series, why don’t you brain storm new idea’s and write your own version. We all like to complain, but no one ever does anything. As fans, we know what we want and what others expect. I’m sure that if we all got together we would be able to make this franchise flourish again.

(290) Karen Dix says:

First time in years there’s finally an intelligent show with real potential and they go and cancel it. If they had run the series normally, you know all the shows in sequene done during one season I think it would have done better. But from the beginning they started and stopped . How can anyone develope A FOLLOWING THAT WAY????

February 6, 2011 at 10:24 pm
(291) Karen Dix says:

I just can’t believe they cancelled this show. Finally an intelligent show with some real people and they don’t even give it a chance. They play around with the schedule and start and stop the show. How can people watch it when it wasn’t even on regular?? Just stupid!

February 6, 2011 at 11:34 pm
(292) Darin says:

No kidding Karen.
How do you build a fan base when you don’t air the damned show? I remember a time, if an episode wasn’t ready, you would see a re-run. What do we see? Ghost Hunters?
That isn’t even sci fi, just regular fiction.
Hey, execs, here’s a clue. So is pro wrestling.
The show didn’t fail, YOU DID.

(294) John says:

Very poor and boring show. This is the only SG series that I actually had to fast-forward through in certain parts. I didn’t even mind missing episodes! I’d have to say the most annoying thing about the show was the way the “crew” always found something to get depressed about. I think that that situation would be the adventure of a lifetime, and all you see is people whining about going home. Not a single person appreciating their situation in any sense other than Carlyle, in his self-serving way. Then the dark music kicks in, etc etc. While other SG series were not as realistic, they were enjoyable and people at least showed some sense of nobility, honour, and good humour. None of which were present in SG-FU.

Gosh, That is the worst news i have heard in a long time. Really love my scifi and SG trilogies. Such a great idea and concept.

WTF. As of now i am canceling syfy. They finally have good solid show and they cancel it. I am a fan of all the stargate series and think that SGU was a excellent evolution of the series. I hope the bean counters choke on them. Maybe syfy will make another peice of S&^% Ghost show “WHAT WAS THAT!!!” They can have the wrestlers investigate haunted rings or maybe python vs wharehouse 13.

SyFi you have disapointed me for the last time…

February 8, 2011 at 9:50 am
(299) Dave says:

I am disapointed that SGU will be cancelled just as the show was showing real Stargate promise. Yes it was a slow start tot he show in season one. The show should have developed faster. There is so little to watch on TV these days. Way to much Reality TV, I prefer to live reality and watch fantasy. Shame they won’t wrap the season up at least. Mind you the way Atlantis got wrapped up made my head spin. But I’m still glad they did a wrap up. The SG franchise was one of the best shows on TV for me, up there with Dr. Who and that’as saying something. Hope to see SG-Something soon or I’m selling my TV. P.S. Eureka is also good, smart, funny, Whs 13 I also enjoyed, But SG-Anything was what I waitted every week for. Sad to see it end.

thanks sci fi now i can stop paying extra for the scifi channel because SGU was the only show worth watching apart from reruns of SG1 and SGA.

what makes you tards think we want to watch a load of made for scifi B movies and shows like wrestling its like you have a bunch of kids programming for you.

sci fi has turned into a big bag of garbage that anyone with half a brain wouldn’t tune in to see if their life depended on it.

good job morons

February 8, 2011 at 2:05 pm
(303) Time Warrior says:

Thats BS. The ratings were fine as always. What it boils down to is this: we see non-scifi related crap like WWE and we see “reality tv shows” which are only slightly better than the worthlessness of shows like “Jerry Springer” while anything creative and innovative gets yanked.

The agenda here is simple. Get people used to having their rights, freedoms and what they love yanked away. Addict them to pointless drama. Make them as dumbed down of sheep as possible and make piles of cash from more efficiently controlling the masses.

These big corporations don’t care about shows, they care about maximizing profits at any cost. Its a dog-eat-dog game and you can only win it by being cut-throat. Ask any stock market broker, they won’t deny the fact.

February 8, 2011 at 3:58 pm
(304) The Other Jenny says:

I add my comment here because I hope to be counted. Call me an optimist.
The cancelling of SGU is a poor decision based on biased advice.
SyFy is NOT the Sci Fi channel; that channel died when it had the name change.
I hope that reason and the understanding the concept of ‘bread and butter economics’ will dawn upon the execs of ANY channel.
In Science Fiction you have a captive and fiercely loyal audience of tens of millions worldwide. Unfortunately the ‘commitment quotient’, along with the attention span, of the decision makers is limited to the first season of anything.
I enjoyed the SGU series as it had enormous potential and had a phenomenal cast.
Terrible short-sightedness and a great shame.

(307) Another Disgruntled fan says:

SyFy sucks. You finally get a show right, and you cancel it.

SGU actually made Stargate a little more realistic in concept. You brought in what has always been missing in the other two shows, a human aspect. Of course reading some of the comments, I can see that some people don’t get that.

Oh well. So long SGU. So long Firefly. God forbid a science fiction show touch on actual human feelings instead of BLOWING UP ALIENS!!!!!!!!!!

F U SyFy. You’ve lost me as a viewer completely.

Well, another great show gone like dust in the wind. It has many friends out there; Star Trek (the 1966-69 series), Firefly, Standoff (ok, not Sci Fi, but we loved it), Star Trek Enterprise, Capricia, Surface, seaQuest (ok after the 2nd season, the show died), Invasion, Odyssey 5, StarCops, Terminator the Sara Connor Chronicles, Knight Rider 2008 (ok, after most of the cast was killed off the show died, but you gota love the car!!), and the list goes on. But what can we do. Americans want shows that star Snookie and The Situation, or cop dramas like Law and Order Elevator Inspectors unit (thanks Simpsons). All we fans can do is be the fans we are. If a show gets canceled, its not that it’s a bad show, its just not enough people know its a good show. If you know a good show, tell your friends, family and even your co workers. I got most of the people I work with to watch Being Human, Human Target, and The Cape and Sanctuary. Image if we all could get 20 people to watch the good shows….anyway, I have said enough. Bon voyage crew of the Destiny.

Does anyone know if they will end the show or will it be like the other canceled shows of our time that leave you hanging in the wind?

Hope he catches something very nasty and suffers like the rest of use, with the demise of SGU, I am at a loss in my downtime and hope Brad and the Gang move to a subscription download service as that would cut the middle men and suits out of the equation as really liked where this show was going.

(311) Eugen says:

Well, it got what it deserved. SGU was a disgrace for the SG idea. Nothing more than a lame mixture of other SciFi themes. I’m a hardcore fan of SG-1 and Atlantis and I was SO DISAPOINTED by SGU!!!
Better that it’s gone, it spoiled my previous SG taste!!

(312) AnimeGuy007 says:

I am very sad to hear that SGU will end after only 2 seasons, I myself am a huge fan of the franchise and I own all the Stargate media on dvd, I hope someone picks this series back up and continues making it. Who ever made the final decision to axe it should be suffer the punishment of execution by firing squad. (This comment will probably be removed for that last remark, although this is my first time posting so I dont know if these comments are moderated.)

February 9, 2011 at 12:53 pm
(313) Xerove says:

Well as a SG-1 and Atlantis fan I’d have to say… Wait for it…. I loved SGU!!!! Probably one of my favorite SG’s. I’m not entirely sure why the fans of the first two series didn’t like it. It had plenty of suspense and every episode held some progression, which is more than I can say for the original SG’s, I’d have to say there were a lot less straight up filler episodes for this series. Also the childish heroics of the first 2 started to drag on me. “Okay our one guy is trapped behind enemy lines, so we’re gonna send in this squad of generic no names to die in order to save him…..” This show wasn’t just about surviving some blood sucking aliens and brain infesting worms. Also to those who’ve posted here the characters had no real delvelopement….. Really, and the previous SG characters did??? Far as I can remember the only things that changed were their hair styles… Wait no that’s wrong too…..

February 9, 2011 at 3:08 pm
(314) jay says:

Sad. There should be enough room in our universe for all the others on tv. its a shame that people have a hard time watching more realistic problem solving to admitedly unrealistic situations like they had on sgu – they’d rather watch ‘reality’ tv(which, of course, isn’t real at all) or watch overly heroic, two dimensional characters blast their way out of an impossible situation and swap a couple of crystals in a completely alien technology to save the day (don’t get me wrong – I loved sg-1 and Atlantis too).

Sgu explored some of the issues a group of humans might actually go through when forced into an unexpected and unprepared for, and in most cases, unwanted adventure ina more realistic manner (maybe ‘realistic’ is the wrong word here – at least certainly overused here)’ and I liked that. I found that interesting and exciting because the writers didn’t rely on the old cliche solutions to deal with these problems as much, and because Destiny was a little less Ancient in its Ancientness (actually more ancient and less advanced, so closer to our level), the crew was slowly able to figure out some of the technology – just like might really happen (as long as you could have a few geniuses along, as well as a few regular actual scientiststs familiar with some other alien tech). Throw in a few Marines and soldiers to handle the rough stuff and you’ve got a show I’d like to watch.

Real (good) science fiction deals with aliens and futuristic technology and – heres the important part – the way real people might deal with it all. Thats the hook to help us identify with unrealistic and dare I say it – alien situations. It deals with the human side to help us deal with it. With out that part, it’s all just fantasy set in space.

And none of it includes wrestling. Well, maybe sometimes if it is appropriate to story developement. maybe…

February 9, 2011 at 6:56 pm
(315) AquaTeenFan says:

I know no one will probably see this but I just wanted to say that SGU was an awesome show. The only negative thing about it is that it did not have the humor of SG-1 or Atalantis. That was one of the main reasons I liked those two shows so much. But SGU will be missed by myself greatly. I’m also mad Caprica got cancelled, that was the only Battlestar Galactica thing that I was into. I guess people are just too obsessed with reality tv, and dancing shows, ah well, such is life.

February 9, 2011 at 8:29 pm
(316) Chad says:

What is wrong with America? The only programming that seems to survive here are mind numbing reality shows and empty sitcoms. The general public seem to no longer have an interest in a well developed story line. SG-U may have a better chance of surviving if SyFy can figure out a way to implant Jar Jar Binks into the series.

May you R.I.P Firefly, Sara Connor Chronicles, Invasion, Threshold, Space: Above and Beyond, Sliders, and soon to be SG-U.

(317) Robert says:

Why would the best Stargate yet be axed? I have always been a stargate fan , the cornier SG1 and Atlantis , and although SGU characters were not as likable, I think it was the right path for SG to evolve. I have found SGU to be much more addictive and fresh with it’s continuity of story through all episodes. I think the script writers got this one perfect and deserve the chance to full-fill their vision of a realistic survival SF series.Since the original movie , I have always believed you could not have a better concept for fulfilling our varied SF fantasies.the end of stargate would be a tragedy for Science fiction and the sci-fi channel.

February 10, 2011 at 6:05 am
(318) Tony says:

Ok, to start off. I love Warehouse 13, Eureka and SGU. Those are the only shows on Syfy that actually entertain me, as for adding Wrestling to the line up…. Really?!? Syfy, are you out of your minds or did someone that’s a complete idiot get promoted to arranging the line up? What the **** does Wrestling have to do with Science Fiction?!?? I guess someone is trying to tell us, Wrestling is fake thus belongs in the science fiction category.. That may be true, but in all common sense the last time I checked nerds and geeks don’t go for wrestling. They go for the real science fiction fantasy stuff not a bunch of guys running around in clown suits acting like idiots.

What do you expect from a station that offers Sci-Fi views… wrestling…. come on, when the Ex’s thought that was a good idea they were prostituting themselves for ratings… we need another station committed to great sci-fi programming, SYFY is now been shot with a Zat… one more shot and we all know what happens. Are they going to add food and fashion programming to their line-up????

It was just another world we were leaving in.

(323) Joey says:

Such a tragedy… I had never seen a single episode of stargate or the movie, but after seeing the first episode (the three parter) of SGU, I went back and watched all 15 seasons of the others. For those of you who say it’s boring, watch the first two seasons of Babylon 5. Then watch the third and fourth seasons and you’ll see what a “slow” start really is. This show was drama in the truest use of the word. Incredible acting, compelling character, engrossing plots and that glorious over-arching feel of a stargate show. This was the Sopranos of science fiction and I hope that Sy-Fy reconsiders.

Syfy has gone right downhill, especially since they changed their moniker from Sci-Fi. Friday night smackdown? Give me a f___ing break! Looks like they forgot what they are supposed to be about and started trying to attract a new viewer base, one that isn’t interested in science fiction.

February 10, 2011 at 11:18 pm
(325) AXE637 says:

What really bothers me is SyFy ditches a great
Show like SGU but opt to continue to make
Their crappy original movies and their ripoff
“Original” shows like Being Human. They
Completely steal the show from the BBC
and just change the local and character
Names. Hell the ghost is dressed exactly
The same. So the get ride of a real
Original to bring in a stolen one.
Oh and then there is the WWE.

(326) scott says:

Hhhmph! The first SG series worth watching and it get’s canceled. I guess NBC-Syfy thinks they’re the BBC, well at least just acting like it. I got involved with the BBC “Survivors” series based on the Terry Nation book, spent two seasons getting involved in the story and then nothing. I guess Syfy will just have to live without my viewing any of their content, as does the BBC.

Cancel the good shows and replace them with garbage expecting to keep your viewers…What the Fyoudoubletoothpick are you thinking?

(327) Scifi_will_never_read_this says:

All these shows get cut for the same reason, and it’s not the lack of viewer support and burgeoning production costs that the networks tout as the reason; money and an absolute lack of interest in providing great long term content is. No network wants high quality, high priced content sucking up their high profit time$lots.

All the big networks suffer from the really horrible habit of switching out high quality, high priced shows in good time slots for low cost cheese in an effort to gorge themselves on advertising dollars. A great new high priced show draws a big crowd, advertisers rush in and open up their wallets for spots in those time slots, and the big networks put the high priced shows on hold and\or arbitrarily switches the shows time slot with some low cost project. Classic bait and switch…lol.

If you really want your shows back, you need to hit them where it hurts; stop watching their shows…and be vocal about it. Advertisers only want to give money to networks that attract and ‘KEEP’ viewers.

(328) Quiet Man says:

Scifi channel is getting away from the real reason it is on the air. I thought after they screwed up with Farscape that they may have redeemed themselves with SGU. But, I see profits now take over profits later.

Showtime – I do not subscribe, but I will if you take the show I will.

Thank you

(329) Wil says:

All the board membes at scifi channel are morons as they can’t spell (SCIFI NOT SYFY) they can’t run a network (reality TV & soaps) & last but wearst of all they don’t even know the meaning of scifi, a quick lesson: scifi = science fiction, wrestling = spandex clad men faking smacking the hell out of each other, NOT IN ANYWAY SCIFI !! its a joke, let’s boycot scifi channel oh sorry SYFY.

(330) lori says:

SGU was nothing like the other SG’s. I liked the old one’s, but SGU was more like Battlestar Galactica than the old StarGates. I am really disappointed that I won’t get to see the end of the story.

February 11, 2011 at 8:41 pm
(331) eddie brown says:

this show deserved to get canned . worst writing ever . a soap opera disguised as a sci-fi show .

“the stones” ….. hahahahahaha …. what idiot thought that was a good idea ??

(332) dave says:

I am a devout SGU fan as well as Warehouse 13, and Eureka. You can do what you want with the rest. Now I’ll only have 2 shows on SyFy to watch. Sucks.

February 12, 2011 at 1:57 am
(333) Tom says:

I didn’t expect much from a network that changed it’s name so that soon the new generation will not know why it is called that. How do you get Science Fiction from SYFY?

SGU, to me, was the best of the SG franchises as it lost the campiness of the original two. It was the only one I even took a little bit seriously.

February 12, 2011 at 3:17 am
(334) SGFan says:

SyFy has lost another viewer. Stargate, Stargate Atlantis, and the one that had me on my toes…Stargate Universe were the primary reasons I watched SyFy. Most of the movies they have should never have made it to air and the cancel shows with good plots that are good and continous from the first episode of SG1. They must have not followed the series and do not get it. Cancelling SGU was NBC’s SyFy’s worst decision to date!!

February 12, 2011 at 5:04 pm
(335) Dave says:

Shame the show was cancelled. I never liked the other Stargates to B grade. Well there’s nothing left to watch on SciFi. That was the only show I liked. I heard the cast got notified by tweet how spineless.

February 12, 2011 at 5:14 pm
(336) billythekid says:

Caprica sucked and was never meant to be good anyways, but SGU is what brought trekkies in from star trek: Voyager and frakkers in from battlestar galactica. I was really curious to find out what the message was from the beginning of time but now i guess it is up to speculation and the inumerous amount of books that fans are going to be creating to find their own answers and conclusions.

SGU you will be missed.
P.S i think they’ll renew SGU by 2013, so fingers crossed

February 12, 2011 at 10:04 pm
(337) Brian says:

The main reason for even turning to the SYFY channel was to watch and sometimes rewatch the Stargate series…including the latest SGU.

Why do they always cancel the good shows and keep the goofy ones, like V or some other awful made for TV movie.

What in the wide, wide world are they thinking at SYFY?

February 13, 2011 at 6:59 am
(338) skye says:

pretty much a given syfy managment doesnt care if they make a million they want 10 million pocketd per show. An I hope this mentality there projecting truly bites them in the arse.
Since it does seem our human intellectual side is a far memory for most ill say this in elementary terms.
Warehouse 13: crappy suck, Eureka: sucks II, Haven: never saw it an never heard of it & Sanctuary: pretty dam dull.
I didnt enjoy the stargate series much but SGU I liked.

Theyll never read this but I give propps to the writers, director an actors. Ill miss the show an I hope somene picks it up an it runs it for 10 years just so I can laugh at Syfy an there great managment skills.
Dam Syfy fracken higher some syfy intellects not stiffs in suits who majored only in economics. Im glad you changed your channel name ‘cuase you just cant live up to the original sci-fi name anymore.

February 13, 2011 at 9:10 am
(339) cristian says:

That is too bad. I really enjoyed the show.
Good acting good writing good goo special effects good story what else do you whant?

I guess is hard to compete for viewers when other networks keep flooding the airwaves with cheap crappy realty shows.
Where you don’t have to pay actors, directors, or writers for that matter.
Cheap does not mean good.

I want quality
I hope showtime picks it up and makes a killing on it.

February 13, 2011 at 12:49 pm
(340) brent says:

SGU was getting so interesting. really hope they get picked up by someone else. Hell, i still wish all of the stargates where on. you can never have to much stargate. **sniff**

February 13, 2011 at 3:13 pm
(341) Tchat says:

It’s really a shame that they cancel this serie. The best of SG for me, very good actors, universe …. The late SG1 and SGA looked cheap in comparaison.

February 13, 2011 at 11:01 pm
(342) Andrew says:

I live in Canada and this series plays on Space Channel. This series was the most watched series ever on this channel.

I keep asking myself, how on earth could this calibre of a show be cancelled? This was truely my most favorite tv show ever. It even supassed Star trek. I am in disbelief. Wow, just wow.

I truely hope that it is picked up by someone else, because this series deserves to continue.

This series represents the evolution of television. It was simply brilliant!

February 14, 2011 at 12:18 am
(343) Daniel says:

Wow, I thought this show was attracting a bigger audience. It was even appealing to people who did not like Stargate.

The shows they kept are not worth watching, yet the ones that are good are gone.

TV is getting worse and worse because they listen only to the masses, and the masses are stupid….

February 14, 2011 at 2:47 am
(344) BattleStar says:

People are watching more video ONLINE , plus no Ads there. SYfy cant keep count of people really watching their shows. there are bunch of sites offering free video streaming therefore TV future is not that bright.

February 15, 2011 at 1:42 pm
(345) Richard says:

I for 1 will Miss SGU as I download this from the net as we will never get to see it in the UK
I was waiting to see what happened to the rest of the crew after the recent ending, I could not get into Stargate Atlantis but I have All 10 series of SG1 + the 3 relevant films as I stated before I had got into the SGU i feel saddened at the fact it has been cancelled as I was looking to watching this for years ahead
thanking you Richard

February 15, 2011 at 7:24 pm
(346) MTGraves says:

Though most SG fans will say that this was the worst show on SyFy. They are wrong. WWE is the worst… Its not even Sci Fi, its a sport, if you can even call it that. BS I say, with all the dumb reality shows they’ve added, and the WWE, then changing from SciFi to SyFy because most young poeple cant relate to anything unless it has been dumbed down. The SciFi channel has lost their way, just like MTV. And for those who dont understand what I mean. Ask your self, just how many music videos does MTV or Music Teleivison play now a days? See my point?

I’d rather watch a bad SciFi show on the SciFi channel, than a reality show or the WWE. Or at least a SciFi based reality show would be fine. Though Ghost Hunters is kinda dumb, its more SciFi than the WWE. You dont see ESPN showing soap operas, or cooking shows, you dont see CNN showing Snooki partying at the Jersey Shore do you? Why did they have to sell out. If you RIP anything it should be the (SciFi Channel.) This angers me so.

February 16, 2011 at 9:26 am
(347) Miker says:

Bring back Stargate Atlantis-great show, and it could finally do its run to season 10 like it should’ve done in the first place before they axed it for SGU……

February 16, 2011 at 11:21 am
(348) Mes says:

It is weird but if you look at all 3 stargates and what season they ended in, each progressively only lasted half as long as the one before it…

SG-1 = 10 Season

SGA = 5 Season

SGU = 2 Season

* Hey it should be 2.5 Season for SGU come on SyFy Give them another 10 episodes into Season 3 to make the half mark!!!!!!

February 16, 2011 at 3:57 pm

it has been cancelled! Very disappointed!

(350) vic says:

So tired of all the garbage reality shows.SGU is great !!! Creative! Imaginative! Fantastic Acting! A show that actually inspired thought. I am very upset that they have cancelled it.Bring it back!!!!

February 16, 2011 at 9:48 pm
(351) His Lordship says:

Horror. I am still in therapy over the cancellation of ‘Millennium’ over a decade ago. Some shows need time to breathe, and I am appalled that SGU has been shut down. It was darker but the best of the three – and, as someone pointed out upstream – it lacked some of the cornier elements of SG1 and SGA, to say nothing of the sub-Benny Hill/‘Wormhole Extreme’ 100th and 200th SG1 episodes.

Not much out there at the moment. They could have done more with Caprica, although I could foresee a struggle with BG continuity if it had carried on.

No 24 either, apart from a promised movie.

A good 24 replacement might be the 20-episode Danish thriller ‘Forbrydelsen’ (‘The Killing’), although it’s more realistic and grittier than 24. Watch the Danish original with English subtitles. Don’t wait for the American remake, even if it does have Michelle Forbes.

I might have to read a book.

(353) anne says:

what else is expected of a show with mainly recycled aging actors!?! give me a break ! SG1 worked as the actors where young & mainly unknown..it was a growing chemistry among a SMALL group of adventurers bouncing off one another.. a small group within a group ..if that worked so well & it did .. why change the format to this mishmash of people who dont connect to each other..the stories are all over the place there is no chemistry ..wont ever be as we forget who they all are anyway!!
battlestar worked for awhile as it focused on a small group within a group as well but hey theres only so much that can be done on roaming ships!
star trek works as the same principal is carried forward ..the chemisrty builds & we become part of that group all over again!
scifi is becoming a lost genre.. not helped by the lack of interest at awards ceremonies !
thank goodness some TV channels have the sense to show repeats..thats all we got now folks! :)

February 17, 2011 at 12:12 pm
(354) Nemesis says:

thank god this is finally dead…
i watched sg1 and sga and all i can say about sgu was that it did not even hold a candle to the 1st 2 series.

February 17, 2011 at 4:02 pm
(355) JM says:

This is really disappointing news. The show started off pretty slow but the stories had been getting better and the characters got more engaging. In the beginning, the stories were all about the people and their “issues” (boring), but then as the series moved forward it got to be more about survival which is what the show should be about anyway. This is were I started to like the characters more and the acting was getting so much better. Plus, moving the show around doesn’t help much, especially when you place it on Friday’s when your target audience will be gone – that’s a smart move. It’s to bad that the SyFy channel will cancel this show now that it is progressing, yet they continue to show wrestling – which is NOT science fiction. As someone else mentioned before, the SyFy channel seems to have lost their way. Go back to your roots guys. Dump the wrestling and get back into showing the science fiction stuff.

February 17, 2011 at 7:43 pm
(356) Connie says:

Golly, a GREAT syfy and they cancel IT? What brain did that?
Geesh, I was looking forward to many more episodes of Stargate Universe. I’ve been a syfy fan since the early 70′s and Star Trek, Star Wars.

Sigh, connie

February 17, 2011 at 10:38 pm
(357) Amandasoandso says:

I am so disappointed that this show has been cancelled. I have been watching season 1 on netflix and LOVED IT! SGU was the first syfy show I have watched and liked.

At least I can look forward to watching season 2. (hopefully on Netflix soon)

February 18, 2011 at 12:55 am
(358) Eric says:

Just as the show is getting really good and now SyFy has now decided to cut them. I’m really pissed with SyFy, they sure like to piss off Stargate Fans they did the same thing with Atlantis, that series could have gone one for another 1 or 2 seasons. If MGM had known that SyFy wasn’t gonna renew SGU after the second season then they would have prob found another network to put the series on.

February 18, 2011 at 12:59 am

(360) astargatefan says:

well i thought sgu sucked anyways waaay to much drama for the sg fans but i really do wish there was a fps game for stargate even if it was based on the crappy sgu i would still buy it but i really want a stargate fps game badly so badly i can taste it now i wish they never canceled sga they could have made a few more season but yeah sgu sucked

February 18, 2011 at 8:22 pm
(361) Pissed with Syfy says:

To start, I will say SGU is not as good as SG1 or SGA. But it blows away the other crap on TV right now (and I was holding out hope for more action once they set the story line). Yes I did not like SGU to start, but it has grown on me, I was looking forward to this spring to catch up on the show, but to hear SyFy pulled this show pissed me off. Yes it was slow to start, but got better.. Give SGU a chance to show you the potential! I hope someone else picks this up!!!

Maybe Boycott SyFy is the only choice, kinda easy for me as many of their other shows are lame!

February 18, 2011 at 8:26 pm
(362) SwiftJonny says:

Yay! SGU was soooo boring. I want P-90s shooting bad guys and humans overcoming all odds to better themselves. Why does every show have to attempt to be dark and deep like BSG? Thanks to the dumb dumbs that came up with this show, we got nothin. First no Star Trek and now no Stargate, well I guess I’ll head to the bookstore. TV sucks.

February 18, 2011 at 8:48 pm
(363) lynne says:

I have loved all the stargate shows. I will miss this one. My son who never liked any of the others really enjoyed Universe and we watched it together.

February 19, 2011 at 1:42 am
(364) David says:

Well I guess the show could have been saved if they had a wrestling match at the beginning and end of each episode. BBC America has more SciFi shows on it then the Syfy channel does. But I guess that’s why they changed their name and now are copying BBC programing. It’s sad.

Like another poster said Wrestling on the Science Fiction Channel? Really?Wtf?

February 19, 2011 at 6:38 am
(365) Glad to see the back of it says:

Best news I’ve heard. From start to finish this was one of the worst sci-fi shows I’ve ever seen. I’m a massive Stargate fan, but this piss poor attempt to emulate BSG was just awful.

February 19, 2011 at 6:45 am
(366) Susan says:

Well … what a huge disappointment. This SG series was the most complex and darkest of the three and, frankly, more well-written than the others. The story-lines had a level of sophistication and desperation the others lacked. The acting was quite good and the series was progressing; pulling viewers in – fascinating. Killing this series is a huge mistake in my opinion.

February 19, 2011 at 8:05 am

This Sux, Guess we can look forward to more Ghost hunters marathons… Maybe they’ll get one next show! heh.

…and perhaps in the style of Farscape being replaced by tremors – the series, we’ll get something New and exciting like “Jack and Jill” the miniseries. Pilot – The Ascent… followed by Search for water, The Bucket, Head Trauma, and and wrap it all up with Monkey See, Monkey Do… Seems like a decent enough low budget pitch for them.

(370) Elyn says:

What do you expect when they only show a few episodes, then wait months then show a few more then wait months then show a few more??
only the die hard loyal fans will even attempt to keep up with a storyline that is that rare and few and far between. The networks do it to themselves, and then wonder why they cant hold the viewers attention

February 19, 2011 at 10:21 pm

I think SGU was building up nicely and even though I live in Thailand, I think its a mistake that the ratings are taken only in the US.
Here and other parts of the world watch this type of show and there are lots of viewers.

They cancelled my beloved Atlantis to air this disgrace of a show, it was a complete and utter borefest from start to finish.

amazing camera work, amazing script, totally amazing acting, and they cancel it. We suffered atlantis for 5 years then comes a franchise spinoff worthy of the original very sad to see it go. but maybe this might pave the way for another SG1 movie………… I line in hope.

February 20, 2011 at 5:25 pm
(377) Beej says:

The whole concept of the WWE showing on SyFy in a way is justified as it is fiction and most of those people have their bodies through science, therefore science fiction. HOWEVER . . . it is NOT the kind of entertainment I want when tuning into this channel!!! I want aliens as yet unimagined, conflict and resolution with the occasional “RED SHIRT” getting vaporized. The possibility of mankind being destroyed, only to be saved by some geeky computer/science nut that figures out the solution at the last minute. This is SGU! PLEASE oh great beancounters of NBC, think about what you are doing!

Fear not, as you will recall Babylon 5 was canceled multiple times prior to its 7 season run… All the channels are having to reinvent themselves due to evolving tastes and patterns… Even the first Star Trek faced certain doom, prior to its real take off.., now lasting more than 40 years.. They figure it out, meanwhile we’ll find our way… its about time to recycle farscape and babylon 5…. Lmao

Is about time. SGU is so poorly written that I have never been able to finish the whole 1-hr show because SGU is just too boring. I am a huge SG fan. Although SGU is so poorly written, I watched every show for showing SG. But man, the writer and producer need to wake up and realize that SG fans (in the past 20 so years) do not look for stupid love SG series..

February 21, 2011 at 1:01 am

February 21, 2011 at 6:19 am

Ratings are based on how many people watch the show WITH COMMERCIALS. So if you skip the commercials, you killed SGU. If you watched it online, you killed SGU. If you downloaded it, you (definitely) killed SGU.

Guess I won’t be watching much Syfy after the finale. What a waste of some very talented acting, decent special fx, and a good plot.

On the plus side maybe they’ll resolve some of the annoying things they introduced in the second season.

Stargate Universe had a sophomore slump, but it would be nice to have given it more of a chance.

man what is it with all these quality american shows getting cancelled??
so you have to stay alert for the time that its on!!
yes welcome to decent tv!!
Im so sick of these tv shows where you can take a nap half way through and still can know whats going on when you wake.. its ok to use your brains from time to time people..

The networks are killing themselves.. they dont care about quality, there will be a time where we will see “Season 24, episode 19, of man getting hit in groin by football” !!!

thanks for nothing.

February 21, 2011 at 6:38 pm
(389) Geo says:

Every show I get interested in just gets canceled. I can’t stand watching new shows anymore. I absolutely loved SG-1, and I enjoyed Atlantis as well. This show had a lot of differences than its predecessors but it didn’t make it a bad show. People need to deal with the fact SG-1 ended and look to the future. I think the writers were simply setting up a foundation to build the story upon, and I don’t see how a show can be judged so quickly. I honestly think that if they are going to cancel a show so early in its development they shouldn’t even have made it in the first place. It does nothing but piss the fans off.

(395) Lawrence says:

I love Stargate and really liked some of what I was seeing with SSGU but it did lag at the beginning and it was taking a long time to develop and a couple of the characters acting was a little odd at least at first. It was also almost as if they were trying so hard to be different than the previous Stargates that they were forcing things too much. I was hanging in there because I know this bunch is talented but I have to say that the whole lesbian thing seemed like a forced attempt to be politically correct and left a very bad taste in my mouth. I think the slow start and it’s awkwardness and forcing things let old fans thinking that SGU was dropping the ball and losing it’s touch. Add in the gratuitous lesbian awkwardness and many like me gave up waiting for it to come together and putting up with another show pushing the new mainstream agenda. It’s a real shame.

I think this was a great show the only one left on syfi.Its hard to believe people can’t get into to a well written,exciting indepth story with intricate characters and plots.Unlike warehouse 13, sanctuary etc.Its a sorry such good shows seem to almost always fail .

And of course since they have aired the fact of the last ten episodes, you cant even leave feedback bout how awful their judgement is. And who is in charge? The bastard who keeps cutting the cool shows just replace it with emo crap and sweaty men in tights play fighting with each other sound like he just trying run syfy into the ground. what did vince mcman by syfy or something? cuz all the crap that they are leaving us to real sci-fi fans to watch is just as poorly directed as those so called real wrestling matches. and what the hell is wrestling doing on syfy anyway? is wrestling now a science for the wwe and we all know its always been fiction but NOT SCIENCE FICTION DUHHHH. SOMEONE FIRE THE IDIOT WHO IS RUNNING THE PLACE. IM OUT PEACE

BTW if the sgu fans let this go down without a fight the id be ashamed to call myself a sci fi fan even the the legend of the seeker fans didnt go down down without a fight. this type crappy t.v. decision making must be stopped. if they wont bring us what we want we shouldt pay for it. i say hit em where it hurts since they are greedy money loving penny pinching pencil d!&k$. they are just like politicians. they give you what you want for a little bit and later they stick it to you without any regard. im done. goodbye sci-fi cuz if they really cancel SGU what sci-fi show is safe?

(400) SJ says:

SG:U died with the Sci Fi Channel. Maybe at different times, but in the same wave. The oligarchs want what the oligarchs want, and that seems to be more gossipy vampire shows and simpler d–ned logos. I didn’t mind Warehouse 13; it’s fun and interesting, and has teasing bit of grunge. But honestly, it hurts me that Stargate would be cancelled in place of MORE shows that will have no background and bad acting.
It’s true what was said, that a cancellation of Universe is going to shadow the entire franchise. I would gladly accept that, though, if it had worked in reverse as well; if people had let the experience of the previous two series give them some confidence to see this at least a little farther of the way through. But I guess I’ll just go angst over it for a while and try to be more productive in commenting next time.
Jesus. FOX has better sci fi than SyFy.

Leave it NBC to ruin another “actual” science fiction show. Guess they needed to free up room for more quality sci-fi shows like WWE. What’s next? Home and Garden programing? Might as well move their soap opera to sci-fi. This channel was doomed as soon as NBC took over.

What do expect of this network that puts wrestling on a syfy channel. What’s next! I’m surpised they haven’t cancelled all the syfy shows and made it all sports. I wish some other network would pickup Stargate Universe.

(405) Boots says:

The ‘syfy’ channel has been going down hill for a while now.

You would think that the branding the sci-fi channel had would have been worth something. But no, they changed the name, cancelled the shows and put wrestling in primetime.

(406) Nick says:

I can not believe that this show is being cancelled. This is a real sci fi show. Who the hell wants to watch all the other shows on that station. I mean like they don’t know what a good show is even if it bit them in the ass. I hope the the producers do what they can to keep this show on the air. If sci fi doesn’t want them I am sure any other station would.

February 22, 2011 at 11:01 pm
(407) olddaughter says:

I’ve loved all the Stargate series! – each one had it’s own ‘flavour’ of characters & brand of enemies. SGU went deeper into the character. And, as it was turning out, the enemy is not just the stranger but also within.
What happened to imagination as what the viewer brings to the story? Eg., who hasn’t felt trapped, loss of control (of how your daily life is lived; of what your future can be)? Maybe the viewers surveyed were too inexperienced in life or in the use of imagination to see parts of themselves in any of the characters…with graphics and technowizardry as it is now, asking the viewer to become a little more active in relating to a smaller stage for the scifi story (Destiny) might give some viewers, ironically, a sense of being confined/limited – and there’s a starting point to relate to the Destiny’s crew. Instead of I-want-easy-eye-candy-action, the trip within seems ‘dark’ and ‘unfamiliar’. –
I’ve often wondered what ‘real’ space travel will be like…what can human nature stand when one is “confined” in space with great unknowns always on one’s mind? (Maybe scifi’s questioning & anyone’s human ability to ‘project’ oneself into an unknown/untried situation is behind the current Mars-500 project, sponsored by Russia’s Institute for Biomedical Problems )
Feeling trapped/helpless is when the stress hormones kick up all the senses so even the minutae of daily life becomes ‘big’ and even overwhelming…rage, anger, depression, closing down are very common responses to unremitting ‘unknowns’, trauma, loss, etc.
I was so very glad the SGU was ‘honest’ in its portrayal of characters under stress – yet finding ways to adapt and cope as the story progressed. I will miss what could have been done on SGU’s Destiny story.
- I’m a 60+ yr.old fan who doesn’t even qualify for the survey demographic.

(408) Ken says:

Its getting to the point that every time syfy has a good show, they cancel it. I have really enjoyed Universe, as it filled the huge hole in my hart left my the departure of BSG. I am sickened by the fact that Warehouse 13 ( a much weaker storyline) will continue, while a show of this caliber will not. I will no longer have any reason to watch syfy soon. thanks for nothing.

February 23, 2011 at 8:29 am
(409) Robert says:

Absolutely disgusting. Although the storyline was often “darker” than most popular television, this was one of the truly excellent programs to air on ANY channel. SGU had an excellent, complex storyline and some of the best acting. I see it’s cancellation as another indicator of the “dumbing down” of our American audiences. This doesn’t just apply to Syfy Channel’s decision to cancel SGU but is reflected in a whole crop of the current popular shows, which, portend to be “crime dramas” but feature immature, unrealistic banter between partners and behavior that wouldn’t occur in real life situations.

Warehouse 13, for example, gets on my nerves as do some of the new cop shows. Dumb and dumber and I’m seeing this reflected in the work of my students, who read less and less and have more simplistic understandings of culture, history, etc. That said — I am a Eureka fan, but that of course is a quirky comedy.

February 23, 2011 at 1:04 pm
(410) SGU-SUCKS says:

This was a wretched form of entertainment. I had a hard time trying to ingest any parts of this show without gagging. I am so very glad that SyFY has cancelled this atrocious venture. Perhaps they have learned a valued lesson and will forgo any other abhorrent programming.

February 23, 2011 at 2:01 pm
(411) Justin H says:

I have to say I’m kind of bummed that they are doing away with SGU, I am a major fan of SG-1 and Atlantis. SGU was a little hard to get into, but it always is during the first season.

I think this 2nd season was really picking up getting entertaining with them having battles with Aliens now and not having it be just about themselves and some of their dumb lives.

I think it had a lot of potential moving forward for sure. I think the writers could have done a little better out of the gate though since they had the experience of the 2 previous series under their belt, so I contribute this a lot to them. They went pretty far off the beaten path with the morals of the show as well and made it much more adult and because of that eliminated a lot of their viewing audience… bad move! Forget appealing to the gays/lesbians out there, stupid! Move on!

I hope maybe another Stargate Series will come out of though with all the learning that took place from this one.

Great article by the way though.

(413) Fred-T says:

Stargate SG-1 was good SF, it led into a larger SF drama Stargate Atlantis that envision transition to another galaxy, that (I’m sorry it ended) followed with an even larger SF imaginable stage base of Stargate Universe which had great potential of exploring unlimited “true” SF visionary stories once (if) the initial story line gets “outside” those constant boring ship and crew issues. The producers and writers of SF needs to understand fantasy and SF differences–Caprica, Warehouse 13, Eureka, Haven, etc. are not SF. They are present day earth stories only with fantasy and/or future dates (same on ABC.CBS,NBC except current dated). Further, prior SG shows were on Fridays, but SGU wasn’t and if there were others like me, I never found any of it. Moving any shows around is a show killer! If you’re going to be SF–be SF!

February 23, 2011 at 5:52 pm
(414) A Guy says:

I may be late to the board here but I am gravelly disappointed in this cancellation. Mainly because it destroys the chance of another Stargate coming back. It being cancelled also cancelled the upcoming Stargate Atlantis movie I was looking forward too more then any movie that has come out over the years. I’ll agree that this series was not loyal to the stargate methods of the past but it did a damn good job of doing what it did. I hope beyond hope this is picked up somewhere and production on an SGA movie picks up again.

February 23, 2011 at 8:06 pm
(415) Phil says:

I loved SGU and its a huge mistake to cancell this as they have with other shows.

Years ago when TV series rarely had a story arc and just had an isolated episode each week you could cancell the show without leaving the audience stuck with an unfinished storyline.

It seems that NBC seems to be so out of touch that they do not realise that axing a show in the middle of an ongoing story line is extremely frustration to its viewership.

NBC of all has a bad habbit of this. Series like My Name is Earl, Heroes, Caprica, ect all ended with unfinished storylines.

Its getting to the point that I am afraid to let myself get into a NBC sponsored program because it can be cancelled on a whim without any consideration for the people who are following those show.

Yes they are a business and need to make a profitt but all of the programs that have been cancelled were profitable.

I know that comparing “My name is Earl” to the Sci-Fi dramas seems crazy but Earl was making money and had great rating and the cast wanted to continue with the show. It was cancelled because some executive saw a drama in the same timeslot on another channel and found it was making more money and so they cancelled Earl in order to try and copy another network.

NBC is showing a pattern of just chopping a show and leaving us hanging. I know I would not want to buy a novel knowing that the last half of the pages would be blank. This is what NBC keeps doing to us.

(416) jolio says:

It is a real shame, I loved that the characters were flawed. I loved that there was no super hero that would swoop in and somehow defeat all the enemies and save the day. anyone else notice how the wraith seemed to get easier and easier to kill? Eventually Ronin could kill a wraith with a dirty look… Don’t get me wrong, I’m also a fan of SG1 and Atlantis. This show wasn’t meant to be them. It wasn’t supposed to be campy. I think they would have benefited from a short movie or something to sum up some of the first season perhaps. It did drag a little at some points. However, I think that was kind of intentional, to set the mood. I appreciated that they struggled with the basics. We need to get air, food, etc, then lets worry about missions and what not. I liked that the story line felt like it was working up to something. I would have loved to see where they were going with the plotline… Oh SyFi, I miss SciFi…

(419) Ozzie says:

Ok this is what I have to say. If you are all old enough to remember a little show called Cheers started out with the worst ratings you could have and look how they did NBC unfortunately is no longer about quality and SYFY even more so. If you take a look at what SYFY puts out now it will wanna make you commit suicide original movies my ass 75% of them is the same crap different name how many animals can you put VS. each slap in couple of bimbos teasing with their boobs before you say you have had enough. One thing is for sure if SYFY does not change soon they are going to end up like TECHTV now G4TV and why is that station on anymore I’m serious what the F*#k its just constant repeats of Cops and Cheaters. SYFY will be the same way with nothing but repeats of Ghosthunters and wrestling. And another thing SYFY should remember its not all about the ratings you can see on paper anymore because years back thay made that decision with a little show called Farscape cancelled it without warning then guess what at the time they received the largest email and mail response in history and they had no choice to bring it back. Now the problem why something like that has not happened again is not because nobody is watching but because especially in SCIFI TV programming the smart ones are using other mediums to watch their shows like HULU Icefilms and more which have no ratings system except for maybe HULU. What needs to be done is for the viewers to stop being lazy and complacent and start big public outcries again like what was done for Farscape the networks looking at those sites and how many people are actually watching those those shows and what the real numbers are before a show really gets canceled. Thank you for listening

Its about time. Stargate Universe was the biggest waste of 1 hour on tv. The Stargate franchise should have learned a lesson from the Star Trek franchise. First there was Star Trek Next Gen, which was a good show in its time. Then came Star Trek Deep Space NIne, which was ok but not quite as good as STTNG. Then came Star Trek Voyager, which should have been cancelled in its 2nd year, and don’t even get me started on Enterprise. Although the Star Trek movie released in 2009 was excellent. May the force be with you{whoops wrong universe}.

Well i searched “sgu season 3″

came up this and found they canceled it!…
Way to make my day syfy. I tell you something. There has only been one other time someone canceled a show i loved and that was “above and behond” What a shame to cancel such a wonderfull series. the story line was so fantastic for sgu and it was beautifully written. I go as far as to say i doubt there could ever be such a great show like this one to watch in the future..

you have done sgu an injustice.. what goes around comes around syfy.

February 28, 2011 at 4:29 am
(433) g says:

what a bunch of bs i thought the series was going some where but i guess thinking while watching a show is to hard. I guess most of the tv audience would much rather watch mindless dribble instead of something more in depth, and further more for shame on the SG fans of old whining about the new story line i thought it was good for a “new story line” just starting out. So what if it didn’t carry over like the others, the others were good but the writers were trying to carry on a idea without the same old same old, i just wish others would see that, so sad.

SGU you will be missed

I find this decision on the part of SyFy very unfortunate. I canceled my cable TV after they canceled Sargate Atlantis. I watched SGU on Hulu weekly because I couldn’t stand turning on the TV and being bombarded by the crap they show on that channel. Ten years ago Syfy was my favorite TV channel and now I have no respect nor interest in watching the majority of the crap they produce on that channel. I will not ever have a cable tv subscription again and the cable providers can thank SyFy for letting them down. Also, I seriously doubt the figures that SyFy puts out in concern to the show are accurate. I have always had a feeling that they lie about said figures. I remember when they moved stargate sg1 to something like friday at 9:00 and then said that they weren’t getting enough viewers.

SGU, with its twists and turns and “survival on what we have” gets cancelled, and a ridiculous show about a werewolf, ghost and vampire living together gets renewed?

I have watched all of the Stargate series made, was sad to hear SG1 get cancelled but after 10 years was to be expected, then shortly after SG Atlantis is cancelled, was expecting that. Thought that show could have gone/done so many things. And now i read SGU is cancelled… well, its official, SyFy only wants to be known for Wrestling… something that isn’t even SCI FI !!!!!!!!!! With hard times on us cable was the first to go, kept up with my shows on hulu, then they started the 30days after it airs crap. I will find someway to watch the rest of SGU that won’t put money in the pockets of NBC execs… i hope your company goes bankrupt!!

Why didn’t they cancel wrestling instead? Why is wrestling on scifi anyway?? Sure it’s fiction, but crap fiction. Seems they always cancel the shows worth watching and leave the cheap junk.

The series started to go downhill once SGA started airing (not counting Anderson’s horrific makeup jobs towards the end). Atlantis was watchable, but it was lacking something that SG1 had. SGU in my mind, was unwatchable. I tried really really hard, but it just didn’t work for me. Way too much like BSG, and as you might guess, I am not a fan of the soap opera type scifi that BSG brought to the table. Good riddance SGU, I hope the powers that be realize what worked and didn’t work and bring us a great replacement!

(450) Jason M says:

can we have at least one network that isn’t permeated by “reality” type shows, and maintains some quality programming? I guess that’s too much to ask. Apparently the general public has the attention span of a gnat and can’t follow a continuing story-line any longer.

hey look, back to back ‘ghost hunters’, followed by a ‘ghost hunters international’ marathon…. *sigh*

RIP “syfy”, don’t think I’ll be wasting time with you anymore.

(454) Biff Naked says:

Just a thought Scy-Fy … with the internet streaming all the good shows… and only a few networks are matching the viewer count…. in this day and age.

So it’s safe to say canceling shows on your network is the ultimate route to epic fail you can now take. Throwing your watchers away like garbage who made your network what it is is probably gonna hyper accelerate that route. We watched sci fy- scy fy we watched star gate… we watched the good shows… that you canceled. In essence you have now killed all the shows that got you going…. there is only one logical outcome of doing such things… they go …. so do you.

Don’t cancel it… you’ll be sorry…. as a network and as people standing at the unemployment line…. we matter more then your money with out us… you got nuthing…. don’t be stupid… As I said.. I can watch scy fi online free….
The only reason I ever paid was for a clear picture… since you killed all the good shows and I have to find a new channel… if by some fluke you ever show a good series I can catch it commercial free online….

It’s a dog eat dog world you know how it goes…

(455) Jeremiah says:

Now why do I want state the obvious is because it is the very truth that tv stations do not tell the public viewers that which is the only leverage that all tv stations has over any shows given to them to be shown on their station or else they will never have the excuses to terminate/stop renewal of that show due its actual popular ratings and that they will say that there is no more slots for other shows which is a damn lie!!!! In fact they can have a lot more slots then you are told because not one show can prepare in advance three or more seasons in one go. So there is in fact that for example, SGU season one ends and another show say CHUCK season three begins on that same time slot after it ends which will permit the producers of the show SGU to be able to begin the next season in production and let produce up to a certain amount of episodes which will give that show a buffered amount of episodes and not a hectic per week to fulfill the demands of the time slot. By the time the other show that took the original time slot of SGU ends, I would say that the production of the second season whould almost come to a close and then be able to give the actors/actress some well time off before the third season begins and it’s a sure way of not having any shows have a low rating or even time slots being moved up,down left,right and all over the place, OK?!!!!!

(456) Greg says:

I liked SGU’s more serious tone, but had a real problem with some of Colonel Young’s really bad decisions, AND, Dr. Rush’s totally bankrupty character. Wouldn’t trust Rush to manage a doghouse, let alone be the main ops & science guy on my ship. Still, will miss SGU, but maybe wrapping it up in the last 10 episodes, it will finally get as good as it could have been from the beginning…

(457) Michael says:

I thought the show was very good. One of the few science fiction shows it seems left on tv. It will be missed in my house. We all watched it.

(459) Styler says:

Come on. Honestly, people. This latest incarnation in the SG franchise does not live up to the standards set by its predecessors. Just how interesting can it be to see the cast pretty much trapped in a ship flying through space? Yes, I know they occasionally got to touch down on land, but nothing really interesting every happened when they did. They needed an adversary that they were way too slow to introduce. I’m surprised this didn’t get cancelled much sooner. I will watch the final ten episodes just to see how they decide to end this. I hope they won’t leave it open for a straight-to-DVD “movie”, and I hope they come up with something far more interesting for the next “version”.

(461) Joseph says:

I am really upset. I have been moving around the last few months and just remember “oh yeah! There are probably some new eps on hulu I haven’t watched yet!”

I go over there and find only one episode I haven’t seen yet. Then I see a comment about it being canceled. A quick google search and sure enough I find this.

This show was fantastic. An absolute dream as a science fiction fan and an even greater Stargate fan.

I could see where some people were coming from and I do think to help boost rating they could have had more cameos and guest stars from previous shows (mainly from sg-1) but it was still fantastic and now I hear they had a plan for 5 seasons and we’ll never get to see it. So upset. This was actually the last syfy series I watched. Unless there is another Stargate show on Syfy I don’t think I’ll have anything to watch on that station.

Well, here’s hoping another station can pick up the franchise again and hopefully even continue SGU. Please please please please please!

March 5, 2011 at 1:15 pm
(462) Scott in Dallas says:

I guess I’ll never learn. Here I am, once again, drawn like a moth to a porch light, parsing through a long thread about the cancellation of, what I thought, was a very entertaining, well written, and well acted sci-fi show that I watched every episode of. The vast majority of the posters in this thread obviously share my sentiments. What idiots we are and have been. Only after carefully digesting the insightful comments of the “good riddance”, “glad to see it go”, “it always sucked”, etc. posters who were kind enough to take their hard-earned time to enlighten the rest of us, I now feel so ashamed at my devotion to SGU. So ashamed, in fact, that I will be eagerly watching the remaining 10 episodes and hoping that they make more so I can prolong the critical introspection and self hate that I so rightfully deserve.

I have been a fan of all the Stargates that have been on tv. The first season was a little slow to get going, but I really enjoyed more and more because the characters were really growing on me. I sincerely hope the Syfy people will get smart and put back on some form of stargate. If not then I will have no reason to ever watch syfy again, except for reruns of stargate and atlantis.

(465) Frustrated Supporter of SG-U says:

I just don’t get it! The General Mgr’s put WWE Smack-Down in place of SGU on Friday nights and then cancel SGU. How can they promote something like SMACK DOWN in place of a show that stimulates imagination and ignites people to look in a more intelligent avenue, especially when we are trying to help our youth advance in schools and also in other fields and professions. If you want my humble opinion they should the Decision Makers who cancelled SGU as guest appearances on Smack-Down, that would bring the ratings through the roof, I’m sure.

Sorry for the cast and the writers who did a fantastic job of introducing an entirely different approach to the SG Franchise. I wish them the best and hope that some day soon we can enjoy their great acting and performances.

(466) russ says:

I have been a loyal Stargate fan for many years and was broken hearted when i heard that SGU was not going to be allowed to continue on syfy. I do however understand that Syfy needs the ratings but why put a overrated phony sporting event that is not even syfy on in its place wrestling is not part of syfy but just human whimsy. This is not what Syfy was built on and if they keep changing their venue to reality then I will have to find another channel that is more dedicated to Sci-fi then what Syfy is becoming.

Would have liked to have seen more continuity with the crew, the drama was over the top. Also did not appreciate the homosexual element, don’t need that mixed in my sci- fi thank you. Other than that I found SGU intriguing and hate to see it go.

(469) Tomi says:

I love SGU, I think its alot better than SG1 and SGA, This one had depth, a great story line, Romance, good acting, and a real life situation that one day could happen. It opened up your imagination. I can’t believe they would axe this. Plus Chloe is hot lol. The show wasn’t advertised properly hence why it might not have picked up traction. I for one made it my obligation to be home on a friday night rather than hit the bar, Just so I could watch the show. What a waste to Cancel the best series on TV.

March 7, 2011 at 8:22 am
(470) Brent in KY says:

OK, its March 8th and Im just now hearing this, WTF. Im sick of these good shows getting canceled, come on, give it a chance, it was going to be a really good show.

SyFy you best get your crap together, there is not one space show on tv, and all us Trekies and Stargaters and Space nuts want a show we can watch. SGU was it, i love the plot we havent even figured out where they are going and what the ship is doing, now its over? Im so done investing time into these shows only to have them ripped out of my hands. I will not invest the time to watch the rest of SGU Ill catch online when tis done. As for any new shows I will not watch them either, until they have several seasons behind them.

Yopu there at the TV, Stop canceling shows that have a following your just pissing everyone off and with internet the new media you have ever chance in the world to lose you entire viewership! NICE, hope you are happy, too bad we arent as fans!

Stargate Universe…most riveting Stargate series yet. I am breathless waiting for each new episode. I am amazed at the realism. Actors are superb. I have faithfully watch every Stargate and Stargate Atlantis (SGA was rather weak storyline, never really kept my attention) show. This is by far the best. The SyFy network is losing my attention…replacement shows??? Warehouse 13…are you kidding???? That show sucks! Being Human…give me a break! All those shows listed are weak stories, bad actors and just plain lousy. StarGate U was the only show worth watching. Hope it is picked up another Network…

(475) SGM97B says:

Think of what could be done if a real channel picked up this show. If a crappy company like SyFy could put something this outstanding together, but then not realize what they had, just think what Showtime could do. (I was equally stunned when Terminator: The Sarah Conners Chronicle story was cancelled. That was also really moving towards something great.) But then, if they were actually talented they probably wouldn’t be working at SyFy would they?

March 7, 2011 at 4:13 pm
(476) chris says:

they moved the show from friday to tuesday just to air wrestling which caused the ratings to drop. NOW they moved it from tuesdays to mondays!

it sounds as if the network WANTS to lose the ratings on this show for whatever reason it may be. this was the only show i watched on scifi with dedication, almost like lost. i got into lost a couple of seasons late but became dedicated to it especially when everything started to make sense.

scifi lost my respect when they canceled this show. yeah parts could of been better, but the network got paid more money to show wrestling instead of something which sparks imagination and intelligence.

another thing to consider, people that dvr the show and watch it later arent counted in “true” viewer ratings. people dont have time to watch it on a weeknight, so its dvr’d.

good job scifi, or syfy.

hopefully a true network can pick it up where it will leave off because im dying to know where destiny is destined to go.

March 7, 2011 at 6:43 pm
(477) Dave T says:

I am utterly appalled. SG-U is one of those rare series that is both entertaining and intelligent. Undoubtedly, the latter quality doomed it.

NBC never learns. Although it seems silly by comparison these days, the original Star Trek was axed by NBC executives who couldn’t understand that science fiction need not center around killing shuffling, rubber-suited monsters. All they care about is sheer numbers of numb-minded viewers, which explains how inane drivel like Warehouse 13 survives, not to mention cheap to produce pseudo-reality scripted series like Ghost Hunters.

Science fiction should make you think, not drool and bubble vacantly.

March 7, 2011 at 7:21 pm
(478) Dave T says:

Having now read through hundreds of comments, I have another couple of observations. Some of the folks who didn’t care for SG-U seem to be upset it isn’t just like SG-1.

I really liked SG-1, but after 10 years, it had pretty much run its course. SG Atlantis never particularly thrilled me with its pasty vampire race, although Rodney McKay was an off-center bright spot.

SG-U is DIFFERENT. It isn’t a rollicking adventure. It’s a gritty survival saga that has more in common with Battlestar Galactica than with SG-1.

There is a vacuum out there, and I don’t mean the rarified void between celestial bodies. It isn’t just the poorly-named SyFy channel. Look in the bookstores in the science fiction section, and see how few quality SF novels are being written these days.

The vacuum can be filled. If you feel restless and starved for intellectual stimulation, take the challenge. Write your own!

(482) Anne20 says:

I have become afraid to watch science fiction series anymore. They are always axed. So many good shows died an early death. SGU was grittier than the other Star Gate shows. I loved the franchise since watching the movie with Spader. My mom got Showtime so we could watch the Star Gate series. This was the only show I currently enjoyed on Syfy. I think I’m done with Syfy at this point. Even if a great science fiction show emerged, Syfy would just cancel it. Why torture myself? I’m done.

March 7, 2011 at 11:25 pm
(483) Dugway_Child says:

i flipping loved this show, it was a good idea for the next SG line. and Anne20 has a good point; I’ve seen the other SG’s and i think universe was grand, even better then Atlantis. if they stop i hope they sell the story line to a anime, so i can at least see the ending. and this is not the first good thing they got rid of i loved kilexy. so you know what SIFY go F### yourself

(487) LUCORB says:

Very sorry about SGU. But mostly saddened by the types of shows that are now passing as acceptible on a syfy channel. Horror movies,cheaply made disaster movies, ghost hunting, wrestling and now quantum cooking. I am 55 years old and have been a scifi freak forever. I am so sad what has happened to a good thing. I wait for action packed space fighting on a 60 inch hi def screen. I bought it for this reason. I dont need to see some woman with 19 children, or a redneck wedding or 2 men throwing each other around on a mat. I want to imagine whats really out there in space. We are not alone. But if we watch the syfy channel, we are left feeling totally deserted.

March 8, 2011 at 3:29 pm
(488) MFK59 says:

They just don’t understand that it’s not all about “the numbers”. There are so many TV shows nowadays that even the most popular shows don’t pull really high numbers of viewers. Look at the original Star Trek series. Not great “numbers” but it was a mistake to cancel it. I guess we shoulda known things were going really bad when SciFi changed its name to SeeFee.(SyFy) What purpose did it serve to kill the Stargate series on purpose?

March 8, 2011 at 3:31 pm

Yep, did the same to Farscape, ended unresolved, but it had enough fans to pull for a movie to wrap it up. SyFy has no real shows, wrestling and the reality ghost hunters have nothing to do with science fiction either.

March 8, 2011 at 8:19 pm
(493) John says:

This is just one more reason why I’m down to 2 or 3 shows on TV. Any show that requires a modicrum of thought will be cancelled. I love SG, all of them. I loved this series specifically because it WASN’T a rehash of SG-SG1 (I liked Atlantis, but a lot of script borrowing). Fringe is on the death watch as well. If you like science fiction you’re doomed in the current network climate. I hope soon we can subscribe to a show. Then people who watch it can do do without worry it’ll be cancelled after the first or second season.

(494) fpw29 says:

OMG Warehouse 13, Eureka, and WTH is Battlestar Gallactica Blood and Chrome ?!!

I think SGU was a good show. I liked Stargate SG-1 the best. Stargate Atlantis is pretty good too. I hate when people cancel shows just because the following is not as large as they think it should be.

Oh brother.

March 8, 2011 at 9:46 pm
(495) rolovr says:

I’ve been a fan of the Stargate concept/series/drama since before it was put on-screen. Loved the original movie and religiously watched SG1. Atlantis came out and I enjoyed more of the similar light-hearted characterizations and story-telling forumalae as had been created before it.

SGU came out and I was blown away… REAL story-tellling and REAL acting… on a level equal to that of some of the best film-making being done…. wow… what a concept. A show that wasn’t dumbed down to a teenage mentality… and I knew the moment I saw the first episode it would have trouble but I had faith in the SG fan-base…

Clearly, I was wrong as it appears to be predominately composed of the same pabulum-addicted air-head audience that behaves as if every television program has to be a comedy or psuedo-comedy filled with fluff that never challenges the mind to see the world around us in new ways.

How sad it is that network executives are still so fixated on chasing the quick buck that they remain blind to the Seinfeld example – where that show languished in obscurity for its first three years…. Long enough to grow an audience and become a monster hit.

Clearly, those people who commented here that they couldn’t “get into it” are just either looking for repetitively mindless pabulum and are never going to watch anything that doesn’t appeal to a pre-pubescent mentality or they just can’t get over their own preconceptions on what this show should be.

As a whole, this sadly discarded gem will survive in cult form as yet another example of quality which so exceeds the capacity of the lowest common-denominator that there was no way it could last.

How sad a testament this is to populist stupidity.

March 8, 2011 at 11:58 pm
(496) Greg says:

After reading most of the above comments, I feel that sifi is moving away from sifi movies and will stop watching once SGU has ended. This is no longer a Si Fi channel, it appears to be moving to a reality channel.

(497) Bane says:

Thank goodness, this was the worst show ever and didn’t even come close to comparison of the earlier stargate series.

Maybe they’ll get the picture and go back to work on something better than soap operas on a space ship.

March 9, 2011 at 1:34 am
(498) Zeaks says:

“Maybe they’ll get the picture and go back to work on something better than soap operas on a space ship.”

Seriously? This was by far the best Stargate, it was comparable to BSG even. Perhaps the fact that it has an actual storyline and decent acting, makes it too confusing for you.

March 9, 2011 at 2:42 am
(499) Shane says:

Sad to hear SGU is ending so soon. It was a great drama scifi series. So it was different from SG-1 and Atlantis. So what. It’s been a long time since a show like this has me wanting to come back each week to watch it. The other Stargate series didn’t have that effect on me. Fingers crossed someone else picks it up.

March 9, 2011 at 4:49 am
(500) Grant Sampson says:

I cannot believe the syfy channel has cancelled this show i hope someone else picks up the show it has been so good so far. Its a real shame it was so much better than stargate atlantis and they let that go for 5 seasons and it was pretty bad….. Disappointed SYFY channel.

(501) Paula says:

I’m sorry to disagree with your comments above, but I find the whole story depressing and a waste of good actors. What happened to the rollicking humor displayed on SG1 and SA? All terror and mayhem needs a good laugh to relieve the drag.

Hope Wright & Cooper do something on this line again but add some lightness to the tenseness, ok?

March 9, 2011 at 5:33 pm
(502) Daniel says:

such a shame that the show will be canceled.

think about it.. SG1 – always same crew, always on a mission from Earth, always winning, new deco, new worlds to discover, a perfect start

Atlantis – started having a more dinamic approach. Assets got lost, plot thickened and then:

SGU – the masterpiece of the stargate series. It is not a reality show, it is a great achievement of sci-fi design ( ships, races, gadgets) embedded with human emotion. Of course there were two or three episodes where the action was a little slow, but, this is common for all shows. I think a true sci-fi fan would love it… and it’s about pride, they know this show damn rocks. I don’t think they have any pride. You know who..

March 9, 2011 at 5:41 pm
(503) Daniel says:

one more thing, this show has the salt and pepper. it just needs minor tweaks ( not for the true fan, but for the consumerist) – a joke here and there, families, maybe saving earth once in a while.. I think Sci-Fi’s management of this show was poor regarding it’s promotion and great in terms of the episodes that have come out so far. Best one on Sci-Fi for me :)

March 9, 2011 at 9:26 pm
(504) Jaxx says:

The show flat out STUNK. Yeah, all 85 of you fans out there may have loved the show, but that doesnt pay the bills.

The show stunk and now fianlly its over!

Lets get some Star Trek back on or maybe a clone of SG1/ Atlantis.. But this sgu was crappola from the gitgo.

Sorry to all you 85 fans..

March 9, 2011 at 9:31 pm
(505) stolennomenclature says:

Lost interest in SGU after the third show. Too much human emotion and angst and not enough science. Science fiction should be about science primarily, and not about people. If you want to write a show which explores the human psyche, that’s fine, but don’t set it on a spaceship and pretend its sci-fi – it aint. For me all the worst episodes of all the great sci-fi shows (Star Trek, SG1, SGA, etc) are the ones that set out to explore the inner workings of one of the characters. Frankly, I don’t give a toss what motivates Spock, or Daniel Jackson, or anyone – I am interested in what they do, not psychoanalysing them. If you want that sort of stuff, then watch a soap opera, or a any other kind of Oprah. Everyone keeps saying SGU is science fiction – why? Just coz its set on a spaceship?

(506) Mike says:

Wow I’ve been waiting and waiting and now its now more… I hate when they get rid of well written stuff like this and keep junk like Warehouse 13, and the others they have, I’ve really only seen one other is there line up and it was canceled once already called Eureka it was ok kinda corny but watchable, the others, rather turn the tv off and do work.

March 10, 2011 at 8:11 pm
(510) bob says:

What is the point in canceling it
Do all programs get the best viewing results: no
Did it have a base storyline and foundations: yes
Sure the “Message from the Universe” is a radical idea so was the concept of the Gou’ould, the Ori and the Wraith at first but they were developed so people understood them
Let the show continue and develope the “Message from the Universe” in season 3
so far there has been 17 Stargate seasons in the orinal series and two spin-off series of a rather unsuccesful film
sure it could be described as floging a dead horse but the beauty of Stargate is that it can enploy any idea that is thought of today unlike Battlestar Galactica or Startrek
the SyFy channel knows how big a hit stargate is so if they had put in a little more time, effort and money to the website and the adverts it would have turned some serious revenue

WOW! These guys at SYFY seem to want to destroy their network instead of build it up. First of all they hardly advertise the Stargate universe and didn’t even give it the acclaim it deserved.
Second even the time slot it was on was the worst for drawing a viewers. Friday nights are you that stupid? Now just before they kill it they give it a decent monday night time slot, to little to late.
So know wonder it it didn’t derive much viewing interest, the people running SYFY are bunch of 13 year old bubble gum chewing fantasy infants that don’t know how to build a program platform accept for 13 year olds.
I mean it’s SYFY channel for crying outloud. The station with the worst movies created featured on it throughout the week. Of course your going to have to give a great show real notoriety and a smart time slot just to get people to turn on it’s lame channel, what do they think?
Anyway it’s a real shame to see all these great intelligently told stories with a real possible future of awards, bolstered with great writing and stellar acting put on the assembly line of doom that is SYFY channel.
We need a channel that is devoted to great story telling with great acting like Caprica and Stargate Universe both showed they had. Not this we’ll make whatever the cheapest lamest monster show we can find for 10 year olds style of production, just to fill a time slot is pathetic and has no future in it. Your killing yourself SYFY. Pretty soon your going to lose the series fan base that you rely so heavily on.

I beleive SyFy has done a lame job of promoting the show. I did not even discover SGU until it’s second season. As Battlestar did, the fan base needs time to build. SGU is the best thing to hit TV since Battlestar Galactica.
ALL of the preceding Stargate series were lame to say the least, which is probably why people have not given SGU a chance. I actually avoided it because it was another Stargate franchise. What a surprise when I gave it a chance on Netflix instant view. SGU was the only thing with real meat to it. It’s a real crime to not let the show finish out the five years the writers had planned on.

Down with the SYFY channel!!

I’m truly saddened that this is getting axed, I love the stargate predecessors and also love this one too but in a different way. I think what really turned away old vets of precious SG series was that Universe was comparatively ‘slow’ in terms of progression, survival in space gets really depressing unless you got some sort of hope like Battlestar and Voyager had. Not that this makes the series worse but has a different form of quality which is EXTREMELY high in this series as there is the lessoned corniness but its not the show I would be looking to in order to find happiness, sci-fi comedy but a morbid sense of meager democracy on board a ship that largely filled with idiots, most people/charecters there weren’t meant to be there both in story and in cast. It’s a good series but looking it over with it’s slow progression (took a whole season for things to REALLY happen), getting the axe wasn’t unexpected, just saddening.

(519) Ben says:

stargate universe had to be axed eventually i guess, there was just no exitement in it as sg1 and sg atlantis did.
The best actors throughout the stargate series is cournel oneill
in my opinion, and really all the other sg1 team were also.
Stargate universe just really had no meaning to it it was exiting in the first episode with sam in her new battlecruiser
but you can really replace the original sg1 team.
The stargate extinction and sg revolution films scripts have been completed they really should but them into production as i think they will create a lot of attention.

News just filtering through to Australia………Disappointed, angry and upset!!! If you love a show, you can be sure SyFi will axe it!!! Whats all this supernatural stuff about nowadays too? give me a good old extra terrestrial adventure like Farscape, all the Stargates, StarTreks, Battle Star Galacticas any day.

Yeah it gone good. The show was nothing like the first way to like BSG a soap in space. Stop making junk scifi get some real shows. i watching old 80s shows and Canadian scifi cause u.s. scifi is #### as of late. Do i have to come do your job for you?

(524) Rowshay says:

Really enjoyed the StarGate Atlantis and Stargate Universe series. It was a nice way to escape reality for an hour at a time.

For the last few years, the Syfy channel has been the primary subscription for any cable service I have had and the only reason was for the StarGate series. With the series coming to an end, I guess so will my Syfy subscription.

Not a lot of good quality stuff being produced in the last little while.

Warehouse 13, Eureka, and Haven survived the cuts for another season. Its the same predictable scripts each week. Just change the character, change the beast, use the same script from a few weeks ago and we have another episode…

I guess Stargate had another good run, be it a short one…

(525) SGU-Fan says:

I really enjoyed SGU and sad to see all of non-reality crap being canceled. When I watch TV I want to be entertained with some fantasy and not all the reality that seems to be on the air these days. If I want real life drama I just need to look around. Let’s get SGU back.

(526) Jaymo says:

While I will never disrespect the integrity and the ‘awesomness’ of the previous SG adventures, I can’t help but be saddened by the loss of SGU. This series brought something different to the whole franchise and I feel will sorely be missed by more than just a “small” following of fans. This show demonstrated a more realistic approach to how life really works. Through love, loss, death, and life, this show dealt with many more aspects of human nature than any of the other series’. I for one hope that somebody smartens up and realizes the potential of what they have built.

I believe.

Was so sad to see that SGU was being cancelled, really just started to get into it!!!!!! Our whole family is a HUGE stargate fan!!!!!! Its just typical that this happens, there is a big fan base out there, they really should give it the five years the writers had plan and see how it work out but no!!!!! I am so over the axing of shows that don’t really show us the full story but havin to either just end it with no ending or trying to fit everything into the last few episodes. I FEEL CHEATED!!!!!!!!

March 15, 2011 at 6:21 am
(532) HWD says:

To be honest, I’m quite surprised that SyFy canceled SGU, lets face it, there is no other show currently on air that can match what SGU brings to bear, as in: high quality actors (Robert Carlyle and his devotion to true acting for example); an idea that makes you thinking into “what if …” (“someone” created our universe, lets try to find out); high quality special effects (a thing that started in SG-1 continued in SG-A and mastered in SG-U); the character development already seen in BSG and so forth.
I agree with many ppl that said that this new series part of SG franchise had a slow start but let me quote you something from SG-1: “Good Things Come to Those Who Wait”.
At this point, there is nothing better compared to SG-U (point me a show from SyFy that can stand tall and bold as SG-U does); speaking for myslef, having SG-U moved from friday to thursday and finaly to monday had little impact , I still watched this show, why ?!, because it was better than everything else on SyFy (there’s no point into giving more attention to lol Ghost hunters or WWE:Smackdown or any other “ORIGINAL SyFy movie” 0/10 IMDB rated movies).
I hate to say it, but SG-U was a real gold mine, too bad some short sighted ppl decided that it is too deep and less profitable on short term to invest into it for far greater long term benefits.

To conclude it: Lets say a new really good series based on SG franchise rose up in the next years and SyFy picks it up, will it stand up for more than 10 episodes, i guess not? (SG – 10 years / SG-A – 5 years / SG-U 2 years / … next… it’s simple , follow the decay rate of SG franchise , it will be less than an year :) , so where’s the problem then ?, I’ll tell you , ppl expecting too much from beginning ( as in more money as fast as possible, the current pattern in SyFy behaviour)
Whatever… after SG-U last episode are done there is nothing else to watch on SyFy.. at all.. joy, more bucks spent to something else.

(533) daz says:

can’t believe they actually cancled this show me and my brother have been watching stargate since it started and are gutted its coming to a complete end i reli hope someone decides the show is worth a second chance because it was picking up and getting to all the action that 90% of the people out there love and i personally enjoy getting to know all the different characters seeing as it adds more depth into the series when you see a character you like got killed or shot etc, and also because this has been cancled they are canceling the SGA movie too which is a shame because that could have been an amazing film but i can see SGU going places and all those people who only care about the running and gunning go buy a game or something like that you will prob have more action like that in a game than any programme, its just a shame they don’t count the views they get online and in the UK seeing as i know about 20 people who live close to me who watch this programme and are ashamed SyFy cancled it for me that would be like E4 canceling Misfits

March 15, 2011 at 8:03 am

I wish they canceled Warehouse 13 or Sanctuary… both those shows are sub-par with bad acting and even worse storyline..

(538) jpa says:

Real sad. While SG1 and SGA were decent series, the acting paled in comparison to SGU. The dynamics that exist on the Destiny appear to parallel how human behavior deteriorates (The suicide, the battle for power between the military and civilians) when stranded (Lord of the Flies). The plot was progressing to something that seemed very big. I’m going to miss this series.

March 16, 2011 at 1:59 am
(539) Michelle Wilson says:

Wow, so bummed out about losing Stargate Universe. Finally something written well. Yes, it did start our slowly but it really built the storyline and I would rather have a compelling storyline than a whole pile of aliens running around that you have to shoot. Science fiction is really coming into it’s own with better scripts and better actors and none more so than this show. It was finally showing a maturity level lacking in a lot of sci-fi. This show was appealing to an audience older than 14 and above a grade 6 level as so many sci-fi shows in the past seem to cater to or maybe believed was the only audience who would watch it. Boo to the short sighted people that were in charge.

March 16, 2011 at 4:02 pm
(540) Mathias says:

I agree the acting was exceptional but the story line could use a major overhaul. the only reason I am sad to see sgu go is that I probably won’t see another stargaze series

March 16, 2011 at 4:12 pm
(541) Mathias says:

while all the new character crap is OKAY it is not really what I am looking for in a Si Fi action show. if I wanted that i would watch a sic fi drama. I really think the series could use some work, desperately, but that docent mean these cheap bastards should cancel it before it has a chance. is anyone reminded of firefly? and as a devoted fan from the beginning I am FURIOUS with the shortcutting done on the series. for instance sg1 ended with 2 Terrible movies, Atlantis ended on the flimsiest ending since kotor2 and this sgu shot down before people even new about it. personally I feel like the ******** ***** ***** who make the descisions for the series killed the series themselves rather then a lack of fan base. is it still possible to charge people with heresy? I really wanna set these ***** on fire

(543) Lt Data says:

This is poor decision making. SGU had good stories, great characters and equally good actors to bring life to these characters. The stories were gripping.

Despite several attempts I wasn’t able to connect with SG1, or SG:Atlantis. SGU was better than its predecessors in every way.

Too bad that everything boils down to numbers. I hope they will re-consider their decision and revive it.

March 16, 2011 at 5:09 pm
(544) JBK says:

I was never really a fan of SGU. I preferred SG1 and SGA. SGU was just the “replacement” for battlestar galactica. Just the camera work and style of filming shows how much they wanted it to be the next battlestar. If you watched both shows side by side it was scary how close they compared. Also the show was really “dark” to me Stargate was always suppose to be a fun and light show that never took itself to seriously. They should just fork over the money to complete the Stargate Atlantis movie that was suppose to wrap up that series and give Stargate Atlantis the ending it deserved.

March 16, 2011 at 9:06 pm
(545) Jeff says:

Really disappointed they canceled this. One of the few entertaining shows on TV anymore. An interesting version of the old Battlestar Galactica in a way, but better plot lines and more human interest. Hope another network takes a chance and picks this up…

BTW….. is there some kind of a support SGU page ….. or something like that (i know it’s a bad example and please don’t hate me for it ….. ) perhaps something like “A Payer for Japan” on facebook…. and if not howcome nobody makes one

Perhaps together we might change something (…for the moment something like at least 1 more season for SGU).

WTH, for the naysayers.. just because SGU is not like the previous versions you dis this version? only reason I can see is because it doesn’t have all of the cornball jokers running away from the enemy screaming like idiots, or the slapstick in sg1… leads me to believe that the type of fans complaining are juvenile themselves.

for the reasons that made some of the best sci-fi’s that are considered classics, for simple reasons:

– strong actors, strong story lines, some gritty realistic stories, unexpected plots… are the movies: Alien, Blade Runner, Stargate, most of the Strek Series episodes (especially enterprise), Fire fly, and dare say the best: SGU

I was really sorry to see the Sarah Conner Chronicles go, but there was just one too many: “I’ll make Pancakes” comments to suite me.

The complainers that don’t like the show should let the rest of live our lives for the fans that do appreciate what SGU has done.

Proof: you kids just don’t need to watch the show, much less than complain about it..

SGU has stood up to / surpassed all the movies listed above for listed criteria. I think it is the best sci-fi series to date

I have wondered about the greed factor. I don’t know enough about ratings to say for certain, but I always tthought SG1 got its long run from running in a off peak slot. If so? who’s idea is it to run it in prime time.

SYFY: your keeping the other slapstick shows?? I’m dropping SyFy.. thanks out

As a kid I dreamed of flying between the stars on some important galactic mission. This story really reached inside and pulled that kid out. I felt the same when they axed ‘terminator sarah conor chronicals’, and now this. Too much heartbreak to endure. Some part of me hopes that they will finish the series with novels and the sci-fi beast within, will be quelled. Too much crap TV survives, there is something wrong with our society. :(

(557) RWilsker says:

While I liked some of SGU, it broke some cardinal rules

1. You can’t be consistently bleak – see comic relief in Shakespeare, et al.

2. You can have (please!) complex characters, but you need to give the audience people they can connect to in some way.

Eli is, at the end, a loser (and that thin construct – the genius who can do things without any training);

Rush is uniformly disdainful and unpleasant;

Chloe (i.e. Elyse) can’t act to save her life (and without the alien pathogen, was simply slight eye candy and whiney);

Young is a military martinet without any of the humor or real life practicality that Jack O’Neill had.

Don’t even start me on how uneven Telford was (and how poorly portrayed by LDP)!

Who are you supposed to root for? And why?

Sorry – SGU was a great concept and a wasted opportunity brought down by bad character development and plot line.

(558) V says:

(559) SyFy=FAIL says:

I thought your comments where fair, so I won’t say you are a whiner… I’m a huge fan of SGU and really sad to see it go.
To directly counter your reasonable points though:

1. You can’t be consistently bleak:
While I have to agree with the statement, especially for the first season, you have to give the show some leeway, considering the premise they went with. I think they very accurately conveyed Maslow’s hierarchy of needs (look it up if not familiar). This is one of the things that made this show so interesting over other’s on TV. It is also one of the things that was so compelling in BSG, that there are many needs you take for granted, and never really realize how important they are until you are deprived of them.

2. You can have (please!) complex characters, but you need to give the audience people they can connect to in some way.:
Okay, this is another I can’t help but agree with in principle but once again I think I have a different take on it for SGU:

Everyone in the show is somehow flawed, none of them really belong there with the exception of (maybe) Eli and Rush. But they make due. And it is the flaws that they focus on and which makes the story more ‘real’ and therefore more relate-able in a way. Sure it goes against the standards of entertainment we are perhaps used to, but is that really a bad thing. I look at much of the cast the same way as in Lost. Of course if you couldn’t relate to any of the characters in Lost, I can understand not relating to the ones in SGU.

Ultimately, I did see it as a story that would unravel slowly and enjoy that type of depth in shows. I really would like to see it picked up by Showtime since I think “The Sci-Fi Channel” truly had died when the renamed it SyFy (really think about what it means to shorten a name that was already shortened!).

March 20, 2011 at 12:25 am
(560) chris says:

I saddened to see this show cancelled, i thought the acting was excellent, and the plot was progressing well. Yah sure it had its flaws, but it was a good hour of entertainment. I loved the main plot, with a structure in the big bang. I found it progressed well with character development as the action was happening. I started to hate Caprica half way though with all the self loathing everyone was feeling, i was getting bored silly. BSG was the same sometimes, one episode would be good, the next i would be bored silly. This series kept me interested right through. My wife and i loved SG-1, and Altantis( yah it was little fluffy) and enjoyed SG-U. I wish SyFy would reconsider, but if the people don’t watch, the don’t get advertising revenue, and can’t make the show.

March 20, 2011 at 7:14 pm
(561) Kevin says:

Seriously disappointing. The show achieved what so many si-fi shows strive to do but rarely attain. It was compelling, thought provoking, emotional, intellectually stimulating and just plain entertaining. I thought it was by far, the best SG show ever done.

March 21, 2011 at 10:28 am
(562) Shae says:

Can’t say that I blame SyFy. I am a huge fan of SG1 and Atlantis, but I never could enjoy SGU for some reason. Don’t get me wrong, the acting is great and the storyline is good; but it just doesn’t have the Stargate feel to it. Which is the main reason I liked Atlantis, it may not have had a clear plot, but it stuck to the winning recipe.

I am hopeful that we will see another incarnation of Stargate somewhere down the line. Until then, looks like the IOA won folks. lol

Really disapointed in the loss of SGU such a wasted potential. I guess awards and talent count for nothing these days. Cant believe this shows not seen as popular especially in contrast with warehouse 13 couldnt get into that one

(564) David Lark says:

This was the most boring Stargate of all time no action not nothing really a lot of drug out boredom that should have died before it began. They whould have kept going with Stargate Atlantis. I knew this third set would be a wash out. I hope they retool Stargate and bring it back to a place we all know with action, comedy, excitement and more.

I have almost no reason to watch SyFy anymore. SGU was a great show, but america has spoken and we would rather watch wrestling (???) or crappy american versions of British shows (Being Human). By the way has anyone seen the American Top Gear? its absolutely awful compared to the British version.

Well I have mixed feelings. On the one hand, there’s now one less reason to watch TV and that’s a good thing. On the other, here’s yet another story that has no end. Kinda like Foundation. Ok Syfy that’s not an idea. Just leave it alone.

March 22, 2011 at 5:11 pm

Ever since they changed their name SYFY has become a fiasco of programming:

8 Overloeading us with Ghost Reality shows and horror (there’s already a network for that)
* almost no classic SciFi
* changing schedules around so you can never find your show
* and every time a series starts to get interesting out comes the Axe.

I know this is typical strategy for NBC but come on here guys. You are giving me fewer and fewer reasons to watch the SYFY network!

I don’t like dark shows: dark sets, mostly negitive people, constant infighting, and depressing storylines, or soap oprah drama that has little, to nothing to do with scifi.

(573) Leona says:

I really loved this show & hated all the other campy, shallow stargate shows I think they really should have given this a different name & attracted a more geeky audience. I’ve read other blogs & responses & see that most people who love stargate, hated this show because they compared the two. If it were not for the character Eli, the preview of him being home playing video games before going on this adventure caused me to take a look.
I do hope this show is picked up by another more serious network, because I think syfy is becoming the choice for silly, light hearted shows. However, I must say that it seemed to be going the way of Heroes & Terminator tv series – they suck all the life & joy out of the show by becoming far to depressing.
Some characters make the show worthwhile to watch when the storyline is heavy, like Hiro & Eli. Why in the world would you want to mess up the one person who will always make you smile as soon as you see them???
Now, the sci fi stuff is great. It is just not a whole lot of special effects, most men like flashes of light & cool weapons. It is more technical like Star Trek 2009. It is what I would call smart tv. Just come back!!!

March 23, 2011 at 8:53 am

Hey Doyle Have you watched Syfy?? We have a cooking show(Quantum kitchen) and a special effects make up show(face off) on the Syfy channel. There is not a lot of Scifi about Syfy anymore.

(575) Bob says:

Watched every single episode of Stargate:SG1, then they introduced SG:Atlantis which I found was a pretty bad show.

I just didn’t like any of the caracters basically :(

Then I saw SGU:
It was dark, depressing and had a lot of ‘hold your breath’ moments …

Then there was this Lucian Alliance thing, which didn’t quite fit in as well as this ‘What is wrong with Cloe’ subplot.
After a good dozen of episodes they should just come up with an answer to what is happening to her.
Then Telford get taken by aliens, comes back and everyone gives him a hearty welcome as if nothing happend O_o

It was a great show, but sometimes I felt a bit lost with all the loose ends.

March 23, 2011 at 10:14 pm
(576) Daire says:

Totally agree man
the reason why it was cancelled tho is part of why it was so good the great prodution values, which in a sci fi show also means special effects up the cost of prodution, and when you add the small viewership the networks don’t see the point in keeping it. And so we get another season of Jersey Shore and people wonder why they even pay for all these channels

March 23, 2011 at 11:24 pm
(577) r hohlt says:

The series is being cut even though the series IS making money, but not enough to go on with a great Si-fi series. Even though Syfy says the numbers are smaller than expected. But the numbers are increasing and received a prestigious award. That is all very good PR. But I just don’t understand the math ?! I don’t know who is worse, the people deciding to cut the series or greedy Bankers ? They have forgot about the fans – it just isn’t right, like the series is losing money? – no, the series is not losing money – but the series is clearly not making enough money to satisfy Syfy. So, is it greed or is it a financial loss? you look at the numbers for yourself. Looks to me like a debacle near like Atari made with Cryptic and Star Trek Online.

And it would be VERY karmic if Showtime picked up the series. Woo Woo !

(578) Angry says:

My friend and I are actually really pissed about this news. I came in around Mid season 1, having watched ten episodes in a row and loving the series. I was happy that it was so different from SG1 and SGA. Now to find out that there should have been three additional seasons makes it worse. Worse still since The Gates was cancelled, this, Smallville is ending, all of my sci-fi shows are leaving me at once and its really depressing.

I can understand why Caprica got cancelled, it wasnt moving fast enough, storey lines where drawn out too long, But SGU had something going for it. and why hasnt Warehouse 13 got cancelled, I tried to get into it but compared to fringe its no way near as good.

(580) Si-Fi City Junkie says:

It seems that SGU is just one more show in a long line of great science fiction series that have been on a steady decline since the late 1990′s.

It’s really a disappointment, never did I think to myself, “This show might not make another season.” As mentioned so many times before, the production value is amazing, the story is compelling and the acting is spectacular. I only hope that another network picks up the series and keeps it going.

Okay, I would like to know where these guys are getting their viewer “statistics” from. Everyone I know watches it. There’s always so much much hype about SGU… And now I see this bit of information. I’ve loved every single Stargate since it’s conception. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this amazing series. I am not even a big fan of television in the first place, thanks for my taking away the only thing I watch.

(582) Douglas Shuck says:

Compared to the myriad of lousy class”D” Sci-Fi movies shown on SyFy SGU was a breath of fresh-air.

We subscribed to SyFy for Sci-Fi, not for nonsensical movies, reality TV or worse yet wrestling, yuk!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If they keep dropping viable programming for that type of junk many of us will cancel our subscriptions. BTW- the SCI Channel isn’t mush better anymore. Both channels are losing touch with their viewer-base.

It is utterly and revolting sickening to hear such a great show to be canceled.
And for what ? MONEY ?!
I have lost hope for mainstream television, because if such shows can be canceled, i will not watch any show anymore untill it is in the blockbuster section at a store.
The people responcible for canceleing this show make me sick.
I am angry yes. and i have the right aswel !

If something is written to represent any kind of perspective that shows EVOLUTION in thinking like humans evolving out of his barbaric instincts ..is this series SGU which to me is on the right track …enlightening and providing a NEW Generation to understand themselves of what they are really made of in this UNIVERSE !.The series Startrek did this in MY Generation and after seeing SGU i was amazed that finally another series has IMERGED to reach the same level of inspiration and ingenuity that would inspire the Next Generation to create a new unique thread of forward positive thinking which would… in embracing FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION could create future positive change .I unfortunately see a degrading LEVEL OF MANAGEMENT in them in the ability to understand this and i now am ashamed that MY GENERATION ,being part of this thread of DESTINY is producing a bunch of PARASITES …making decisions that is counter evolutionary and based on numbers rather then quality!.

(588) Graffin says:

It’s sad that a unique show like SGU gets canceled.

Like so many others, I found most of the first season’s episodes dull because they only dealt with the character’s personalities aboard Destiny.

Let’s face it, if SGU was to fit in or tie in with SG-1 and Atlantis, it needed more than the occasional appearance of Richard Dean Anderson. It needed more gate dialling. More exploration of other planets. More encounters with Alien species. Not just communicating with Earth using the stones. And, I thought of the series as a bad Voyager rip off. A bunch of people stranded 1000′s of light years from Earth. Sound familiar?

That being said, the second season has shown us that the writers and producers had a vision for SGU. It had (and still has) great potential as a science fiction series. It has a great, talented cast, but it just needed more action & sci-fi and less in-fighting & drama aboard Destiny.

It’s yet another TV show killed off before its had time to develop. It’s sad that there’s less and less Sci-Fi on TV.

And, what will we get?… More cop shows and hospital dramas (yay!)… I know I can’t get enough of my CSI’s, NCIS’s and Law & Orders. Yes, i’m being sarcastic (I can’t stand them).

March 27, 2011 at 9:09 pm
(589) tim says:

SGU was the best stargate show compared to stargate atlantis and SG 1. The first season was bit dull, but it was not that bad. These character were new and character progression is important before action and all aliens scenes. I can’t believe how people just want the same old story. Like SG 1, they would get a mission and go to a new planet, get in trouble and someone would have to rescue them or they free themselves. Same old scene repeating every episode and even in Stargate atlantis. I can’t say that chracter progression and story developing never happened, in both SG 1 and SGA however, SGU was different. SGU plot didn’t repeated in every episode. But people just have to comment negative about it.

(591) jane says:

The problem is with the fans. They call themselves diehard Stargate fans but they didn’t have the patience to wait till it got better as it progressed. The first series was letting us get to know the Characters and that’s a good thing, the second started to hint at what the rest of it would be about.

To me SGU was just starting to get stuck into some meaty story lines. I can’t believe they didn’t keep it on. They made a fortune from the other Stargate series’ so they know there’s money to be made from it.

Again, I say it’s the fault of the fans. It’s not too late though, I’ve seen some turnarounds in my time. If this show suddenly started to get a bigger audience, they would rethink ditching it.

It’s up to everyone to start watching again and watching regular.

(594) Collin says:

I really was enjoying Stargate Universe, it was quality. Period. Like many have said before, this may be the end of Stargate itself (I hope not). The producers need to continue ANY Stargate series with mini-series, movies like Stargate Continuum, or novels.

I really want to see Stargate to continue to thrive and continue.

“Are you people at the Syfy Channel reading this? Get back to the scifi and cancel all the wrestling, horror and disaster movie junk!”

I strongly agree!

I am a huge fan of SG-1 and SGA so naturally when I saw SGU being advertised I was looking forward to it. I finally got the time to start watching it (on DVD) and then see that season 2 will be the end. Really! There is a reason why star trek was so successful because the network stuck with the series and let it progress. Fan bases for series like this are not developed overnight they progress over time and gain momentum. Hell most trekies were not even born when the series was airing! At the very least the rights need to be sold to someone more responsible. The entire marketing dept on sci-fi should be fired. What a complete disgrace. I hope your channel goes bankrupt. I will never watch another series you put out. This is the last time I get drawn into something by you only to see you bail.

Absolutely love SGU! Brilliant characters all round, Rush is just a plain crazy awesome scientist, Young, a worthy good commander not without his problems, Greer – super cool, even Eli is refreshing and the two engineer guys are superb….

The only decent sci-fi on TV presently!

I agree with Mike (post 595), A successful sci-fi series needs time to mature, the characters must be built up and while people are complaining about in-fighting and lesbian scenes they fail to realize that these scenes are necessary in giving the viewer a background and hence a degree of empathy and emotional connection with the character. It’s a bloody story for crying out loud!

I have no doubt in my mind that the crew would have come to work together flawlessly, it takes time for people to gel especially when they’re light years away from home and all from different backgrounds.

Anyway, I’m getting far to upset thinking about this! its a sad day for real sci-fi fans around the world….. we can only hope for another channel to pick it up.

I’ve watched all three (4, including the movie) incarnations of Stargate and while I would watch SG1 if it was on and have plans to watch SGA…… someday…….. SGU has been must see TV for me and I’m totally bummed to see it’s been cut.

Was it the same exec’s who made the decision as the one’s who cut Firefly?

Nevermind, I can always try to kill off enough braincells to be able to tune into Jersey Shore.

(601) Sven says:

Yes I do admit that many stargate fans like myself do not have access in EU tvs to look Syfy. Thats why most the fans in the other part of the globe used to look shows after they where officially released in the channel itself.
As looking shows on the offical SGU homepage or else…
Matter of fact I do understand why Syfy made this decision to cut making season 3.
Me as the fan of both Stargate-Sg1 and Stargate Atlantis before did not fully understood the storyline the first part of the SGU. It was more huge question mark, is it even worth of looking more (too much drama and “stone usage”) and then second part of season 1 everything changed more action and entire SGU got interesting. As the end of the Season 1 it took me looking everyday when the Season 2 comes out and as I hoped it got more interesting. And it did! More “alien” fights, storyline was better etc. ofc the best thing was less usage of those “stones”. Now I understand this entire Season 1 and Season 2 was simply connected. Also SGU season 2 took very interesting turn “how life was born, mission of Destiny etc.” and with the cut of the season 3 we never know what this meaning was or what the real mission was.

Sad, but true mistake what SyFy did. And they need to consider of re-think this cut off!
Solution on this matter is simple. Look other tv company and keep doing season 3-4 up to 5! Money and raitings yes are not on under one company and in one location, but make the show into world. Europe has huge need of this type of show and like before raitings show how effective it would to go out with world scale show!
So keep up the good work and you can do it!
We will wait season 3 no matter if it takes 3 or even more years!

(602) Doyle says:

Everyone, I would like your take on this.
As a movie addict, what I want to see most is creativity. I want to be wowed and surprised―to see something that I could not have imagined myself. (which Eureka had but it was so silly it didn’t keep my interests). Backstory is only important to me if it makes a significant difference in the storyline; or if characters are so intriguing that I am dying to know why they behave as they do. A good friend of mine, Paul Lucy (who has taught screenplay writing for 18 years) agrees with me in that the Terminator TV series, Sarah Connors was brilliantly written. It often had very sophisticated plot lines that made you think―so did Battlestar Galactica although it was mostly dark and depressing. I think what made the Star track series so successful was that it had it all; creativity, unique characters―many that you liked, some that you liked to hate, new and thoughtful science, serious as well as fun-loving episodes, and the sets were not dark.
Please give me feedback!

(603) CreativeEd says:

I persisted with SGU in the hope it would improve. And it has albeit not by much. Concentrating on relationships is fine but the balance with SGU is off. It is a bastard offspring of Star trek next gen (unnh), Voyager (good) and SG (but without the antagonists (like aliens). SGU doesn’t do justice to SGA and Sg

(604) Bronson says:

Over 600 people have given their comments about the cancellation of SGU. I have to say that SGU is one of the best series to come out of SYFY in a long time. Not only were the characters well written, but the plot of the story needs recognition. Special effects were excellent and instead of the usual slap stick humor and silliness of SG-1 and Atlantis this show was dark, serious, and gritty. Obviously this show has a large fan base and people all over the internet are complaining about this travesty. Its ironic that the one show that I want to watch with what i would consider having everything is the one to be cancelled. Saying that I’m upset would be a huge understatement. I was really looking forward to seeing this show to the end. I have not missed a single episode and when I heard that they were going to end it I was crushed. How are they going to wrap up this show in 10 episodes? Hopefully someone who makes educated decisions at SYFY actually looks at and reads these comments and comes to a better conclusion….keep SGU. Give it a chance to grip more people and dazzle them as it did to me and countless others. The story of Destiny and it’s mission needs to be told in full. not wrapped up in a few episodes. The signal from before time was brilliant…I admit I’m hooked and I want to know more. Please continue SGU.

I REALLY would wish for some other network to pick up Stargate Universe..

I loved Stargate Atlantis.. I didn’t care much for SG-1, it was good for a while, but wasn’t serious enough.

I really really like Stargate Universe, it’s in my oppinion the best one so far, I love that you get more focus on the characters and the relationships between them, also I like the darker mood.

Although I do miss Rodney, but all in all I think SG:U is better than the predecessors since it does away with a lot of the old school Star Trek humor.

I’m really depressed to see yet another of my favorite shows cancelled, and this time after such a short time. My other favorite show was “Heroes”.

(610) Andrés says:

Is it possible that us Sci-Fi (not neccessarily SyFy) fans are shooting ourselves in the foot?

It stands to reason that, as a demographic, we are more likely than others to watch our TV in unconventional ways. We may stream our tv, download legally (some may download illegally) wait for DVD sets or do a number of other things that add up to the end result that we are not tuned in when the show is aired, leading to the ad-space around the show being worth less, leading to the conclusion that it’s harder to justify pouring a lot of money into producing the high quality shows with expensive sets, impressive CGI and ensamble crews that we demand.

At the same time, producing a show like 3 and a half men, according to jim or any of the easy-laugh shows aimed at the common denominator costs a fraction of what it costs to satisfy us, while producing a much larger ad-audience.

The bottom line is, we’re a difficult demographic because it’s hard to turn our liking a show into quantifiable revenue. Guys making the decision on whether or not to continue a show don’t have time to wait for DVD revenues, they don’t care about number-of-downloads or electronic sales, they don’t care what foreign networks will pay for the rights to distribute.

They care about how much money an advertiser will pay to be put next to the show, that is determined by prime-time viewership. Period.

Beside considering the money-maker-effect that all companies need to think about, and those never-avoidable-filler-episodes (in any show btw), i hope that SGU will continue.

But in case that won´t happen somehow, i hope that Destiny will somehow show up suddenly virtually…either as game or in Second Life f.e. ….. giving the fans the possility to keep the story going. Maybe even producing some machinima´s ?

(615) Chris Skyberg says:

Hey just had an idea how to resurrect & revitalise the show and bump up the ratings.

What you have to do is put in an episode where the civilian asian bosslady gets into a hot relationship with the Lucian Alliance bad guy and then decides that being a lesbian really sucks, after finding out that the Lucian guy is capable of meeting her needs. (in effect she gets over and repudiates lesbianism). This will set the scene for reconciliation between the two groups as they battle the blue lizardmen!

Then all the do gooder homosexual groups will stir up so much that all the publicity will cause a mass jump in the ratings!

Wonder if the stringpullers have the balls to put on a story like that or are they behoven to political correctness.

Bring it on. Controversy = cash!!

(619) Mark says:

If I miss an episode and am unable to catch up, I simply wait to get the box set which was the case with SGU. Life gets busy and it is easier for me to watch the DVDs or stream the episodes than watch on TV. I have to agree that the rating system is probably not capturing the true viewership of this series.

I wanted SGA to continue longer as I felt there was much more story to tell. However, to hear that SGU is on its way out is quite disappointing. With any luck, they will create some made for DVD movies to wrap things up like they did with SG1.

Again another smart show gets cut. Its apparent only shows that make it on TV financially are the idiot shows.

But then we have wrestling, whats that got to do with SYFY. Here we go down the money trail. It’s nothing new but its frustrating. And everytime it happens my loyalty diminishes, I watch more movies, bypass television programming and commercials. Go Netflix

In the recent episode ‘Hope’ (S02E14), there was a great moment between Brody, Park, TJ and Volker – just prior to his kidney operation.. Park was going on about erectile dysfunction. All of crew just cracked up laughing. It was a very funny scene all things considered.

All the SG franchises have their moments, and I quite like the dark imagery and backdrop to SGU. I feel Season 2 is an improvement on Season 1.

I hope SGU is able to find a home elsewhere, but if so they’d need to move quickly as the cast will all move on to other projects.

Huge Disappointment. I heard the news back in Dec and was awe struck. Amazing to see the amount of posts and I would have thought this show had real staying power as the acting and production are unlike 90% of the shows being air’d today.

I’m a decade long fan of the Stargate multiverse and have always watched the 1st airing followed by the rerun an hour later. Sad that Scify is putting more time and money into these other lame shows like Sanctuary, Eureka, WH13…list goes on and on. Once cancelled if they don’t revisit or revitilize the franchise further then I’m afraid Scify is done for me. I’ll be blocking the channel on my box and putting an ultimately difficult parental password that I’ll never be able to remember.

and the numbers that download it aint small at all..

If it was up to be id globalise SGU and add a littlebit more jokes in it and it should be fine just as Jack in sg1 and John, Ronon and McKay in Atlantis
Greer is awesome in SGU but adding someone more to this might get a even better result and higher rates

But if its the end of SGU then.. RIP.. we’ll miss you

This show did have great sense of progression in its writing and acting. It is a shame that after 1.5 seasons they decided to cut it short…and then tease us with another set of episodes without closure. Those that get scifi understand it is not just about the gadgets and the laser beams, its about dealing with adversity and concurring obstacles as humans.

Money and quality rarely go hand in hand as true quality takes time to develop and grow. It is a shame there isn’t another avenue like webisodes for SGU.

(631) eric cutler says:

SGU was slow and uneventful compared to the other 2 stargate series. They tried to make it more realistic and dark, but the show had too many episodes just about the crew and the ship…BORING. Is this Sci Fi or “Soap Opera on a Ship”?
The awesomeness of what could be out there in deep space is what gives the show such potential, but they rarely tapped into it in enough episodes. Did the producers really expect ppl to watch for 5 years until it got good? I watched every episode hoping it would get better and it seemed like a roller coaster ride where half the episodes were enjoyable and the other half were soap operas in space. They should just call it “Solstice” (G. Cloney movie) b/c the action was often the same.
The numbers don’t lie, they deserve to be canceled! Plz create a new stargate like the old one!

The individuals who program the sifi channel really need to get a grip on the current programming. Since when is fake wrestling science fiction, not in any fashion I know. These individuals will destroy the channel if they have not done so. Any good show needs time to develop the fan base. Writing will develop and improve in time and the fan base will improve provided the morons leave it alone. Moving the time slot for any show is a sure means of killing the fan base and the show itself. Cheers, one of the most successful shows on NBC initially had poor ratings but was allowed time to develop and proved to be a boom for NBC.

First, I have been a Sci-Fi and Fantasy fan since I was 5 years old when my dad read me The Hobbit and then took me to see Star Wars a couple of years later. So, believe me when I say I am a fan of ALL Sci-Fi, I am not just blowing smoke!

The sorrow for me now, is that more and more great shows are getting an early send off because of $$$.

Here are just a FEW shows with great potential that were taken off to soon:

The Dresden Files
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

Now they have been replaced on the Science Fiction channel with… WHAT?

A cooking show
Multiple remakes of BRITISH shows (BAD remakes… The Brit shows are MUCH better done)
Ghost hunting
Syfy “original” crap
etc, etc, etc…

While I will admit I am a fan of wrestling, it does NOT belong on this network.

Oh, and could we PLEASE get some B & A rated movies on SyFy??? Enough with the Mystery Science Theater 3000 REJECT films!!! At least if you are going to do that, bring back some of the OLD Sci-Fi classic movies. If you are not going to change that, then just change your name to the Lame-fi channel and be honest.

Final note: I love my netflix and am SO glad I own the ENTIRE Stargate series (YES, even the awful cartoon version) minus the last season of SGU. Oh, and also Farscape, Babylon 5, Lex and Andomeda…

To the Network, you have lost another viewer. I will just wait for Sanctuary and Warehouse 13 to come out on DVD… and buy them in the discount bin!!!

honestly i love all the stargate series but to cancel this one?? are u kidding me??? SGU should stay on cuz come on this show belongs in the syfy channel not like monday night raw or friday smack down, like come on its a syfy channel not a sports channel syfy should really take this crap off and put it more syfy movies or shows.

(635) Cameron Johnson says:

OK. When I first heard this news some months ago I wasn’t all that surprised. The show was boring compared to any SG1 or SGA. Way too many slow episodes with nothing happening. You were always left with a dark depressing helpless feeling after watching. Not was stargate should be about. Now that they have control of the ship somewhat its gotten a lot more interesting.

I didn’t think they could pull this out of the gutter but the second half of this last season is incredible!!

I REALLY hope they keep it going. I will be terribly sad with no new stargate in the making. I was really beginning to like SGU too!

Veeery late with a comment but still:

What?! They cancelled it? Sons of #$%^&! Leaving crappy shows ON screen, new or re-runs and taking good shows off the screen? Sorry for this, but who are the idiots making these decisions?! Is there no fun involved making good shows like SGU and then sharing them with the crowd? I hope they choke on their numbers.

(637) izhe315 says:

my god. I have watched every episode of every series. and I’m only 19. SGU has been my favorite by far. It has just built up and up. why cant it continue. it truly is unbearable.

(640) James S. says:

The Exec’s at this network have their heads up their asses. They think WRESTLING is more important than REAL Science Fiction.. wait, wresting is fake.. SCIFI is also not real I guess thats how these MORONS make the connection. They are stupid in that they couldnt leave the schedule alone and kept moving shows around.. why the hell wouldnt they think the ratings would fall? The old “SciFi Fridays” were an event that my wife and I actually LOOKED FORWARD to ALL WEEK LONG. We are not some nerdy couple, we are in our late 40′s with grandkids.

The Morons at this network.. I cant refer to them as “Science Fiction”.. because they are NOT being true to the fan base that made them popular. Get the damn wresting OFF the network and PUT SGU BACK ON or you’re going to loose more viewers than you ever dreamed.

(641) anthony says:


I have been a longtime Stargate fan and I am greatly dissapointed with Syfy and their decision to cancel Stargate Universe. I was estatic when they first announced another spinoff to the stargate franchise. SGU commanded a great cast and I thought the writers were headed in the right direction. SGU is the only reason why I even tune into the SYFY CHANNEL. Most of the syfy channels other shows are dull and pointless. The direction of this show had umlimited possibilities and its a shame the execs fail to realize that. Damn you SYFY… Damn you…

(642) sg1ausck says:

I cant believe they canceled sgu when they made 10 years of the worst show i ever see stargate sg1 this show was a pain in the ass just like atlantis. sg1 fan shamed on you to blame universe you guys just dont have good taste. syfy is diging is own grave by making bad show like warehous13 and eureka. now the only good show they got is being human and its a remake

April 5, 2011 at 10:34 pm
(643) Ryan says:

Ok, first of all I only watch syfy for one show: SGU!
Syfy really needs more interesting programming.
The very second SGU season 2 ends, Im out!
I have given Warehouse 13, Eureka, Haven, and Sanctuary a chance and…well for various reasons I cant turn the channel quick enough when they are on. Either horrible animation, silly and downright dumb plots, or uninteresting characters.

I get what others are saying about the SGU writters, but those who have issues with this must understand one thing. This is a series that requires a season or 2 to mature into the totally rockin action show it will be. For instance, compare season 1 to season 2. Survival is no longer the primary issue, the random side stories have subsided somewhat, and multiple plots have been developed to create for many good action packed episodes from two different alien species, a hive/drone army, the lucian alliance, and who knows whats around the corner.

Please any one, take this program over and you will have my loyal viewing for what its worth.

This show would kick (more) b*tt if Richard Dean Anderson played a regular role. The snobby types who feel that his notoriety would overshadow the other actors – big deal – it’s Hollywood. AND, most likely this show would continue. Anderson is golden, and his light and humorous style, would take some of the overly dark edge they gave this show. It’s a sci fi show, why make it so full of lovey dubby crap, and meandering story lines that only want to mess with your head?
Just like 2.5 men can’t work without Sheen, any stargate show will never be the same without Richard Dean Anderson.

Sadly, once again, the most intelligent shows get the ax while we are now stuck watching “book of pure evil” and other drivel shoved down our throats by the network. I guess the audience just didn’t “get it” and had to use their brains too much to appreciate the story. Sad, very very sad.

(651) J.Reynolds says:

Just got my internet back in time to start watching my all time favorite show, SGU, on Hulu and such. To my utter dismay I found that they had cancelled the show, only to air the last of season 2. What kind of horse $h!t is that? First SyFy moves it to Tuesdays (first F@#king mistake!), for WRESTLING???? What the F@#K is that about? The network should have changed its name to BYGY (**pronounced: Bi-Guy**) with that queer @$$ move. Now BYFY has gone and cancelled yet another (and in my opinion the best) Stargate series. What in the hell are these people thinking. I will be the first to admit that the show starts slow, yet it is still captivating. It takes time for a really good show to build up to the momentum to make it great. To all you non-SGU fans, f@#k-off, no one asked you. You would B*tch to if your favorite show got axed for the sorry @$$ lame reasons SGU is being cancelled for. To the Writers of SGU, what a bunch of pathetic fk’n sell-out you are! Hope your proud of yourselves, seems as if you just want to throw that talent away and never reach the potential that is there. And to the fans, I feel your loss and hope that these words will inspire you to voice yourselves against this absurdity that is the SYFY Network. This show should live on, even if on another network or straight to dvd even. So I beg you hard core fans out there, Stand Up and Fight for it. Write the networks, call them, be the voice of the people. Email them daily and annoy them since they decided to annoy you. Do not let SGU die without a fight!!!

(652) As Long as it's in space, i'll watch it says:

IT CAN’t END!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This was the best show since startrek!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


This is one of the only shows i will even spend my time watching! TV is full of such bs these days, then a great show like this comes along and they cut it!??

I think those moronic “bean” counters should start investing time and $$ into counting not only how many people are watching it on TV, but also how many are “downloading / uploading it” then they might realize that this show was a HUGE hit!

Syfy, you lots your only good show. It once again goes to show that there is never anything GOOD on tv…, reminds me of “fire-fly”…

I wish this form could make those stupid managers change their mind!

Someone start a FaceBook Group to Petition them canceling the show!!!!!!!!!!

I have found the e-mail!


In your subject line in the e-mail say something along the lines of:

Do not cancel SGU!!!

Or something like that

Think of what has been happening in the world lately!

We have to fight for our rights and what we believe in! Together we can get this show back!

How could a group of writers create an incredible plot about actually finding the ship that installs Stargates all around the universe and the F&*kholes at SYFY screw it all up with a horrible cast, horrible writing and a moving timeslot.

Oh yeah, SYFY needed more programming space for wrestling and bad movies from the USA Network.

Oh BTW SYFY, it is SCI-FI and you pronounce it SKIFF-FEE. What a bunch of mundanes you have become.

April 10, 2011 at 8:51 pm
(657) 1967 SCI-FI FAN says:

Truly incredible that they would pull the plug on this show. The main story line is spot on but rework it abit and don’t kill it. We were discussing this the other day and they need more off world (ok off ship) activities. Visit more planets as they’re zipping through space. More bad aliens and battles along with hotter chicks. Keep tying the other francises into this series but don’t kill it.

I was 10 when Star Trek LOS came out and I’ve been hooked on Sci-Fi my entire life. While that explains why I’m so odd, I need some good sci-fi. Due to work and being stationed overseas I’ve missed so many sci-fi shows and it wasn’t until 2007 that I have finally been able to sit down and watch some good shows. Just watched 10 years of SG1 this year with only an episode here and there. I did start watching SGA in 2008 but now that I’m ready to watch SGU as it gets released…you cancel the darn thing. STOP KILLING ALL THE GOOD SHOWS!!! How many of the SCI-FI network even care about the shows they produce? It seems to be all about profits and if something doesn’t hold the line or get the ratings off it goes. This is like when the idiots killed Firefly and now SGA is dead. WTF!!!

The only way we”ll ever be able to keep the shows alive is to protest the locations where they produce these at or send LETTER mail. Like they did to extend LOS another year or get the producers to make Serenity. Defying Gravity bit the big one, just as Zoe lays in her bed. That one could have been something better however. Find different writers if you must or get some additional help to create other episodes but QUIT KILLING OUR SCI-FI.

(660) overburn says:

Finally… this series was not true to what stargate was anyways. The great thing about stargate was that it was relaxing ,and pretty wonderous. We had the goa’uld, we had the ori, the wraith were not so good tho , but still… there were countless scenarios to explore and countless possibilities. But sgu was just a crappy drama set on a ship with the occasional use of a stargate. Crappy actors as well. I think rush and eli were the most interesting characters, but they could not compare to a daniel jackson for example. I don’t watch sci-fi to see that nobody actually does nothing because of the red tape and beaureaucracy and the action stalls all the time. Wow , we have a ship. Let’s use it. No! don’t use it! we’re all gonna die if you do! Yeah, realistic but not fun!

Hey question if Sci-Fi is cutting it… Then how about like CBS picking it up? honestly I wouldn’t mind changing my favorites channel from Sci-Fi to CBS on monday’s or friday nights to watch SGU more… CBS hint hint* want to pick up more viewers and draw away from Sci-Fi XD

I’d actually pay to pick up the Showtime Channel I cancelled a long time ago if they were to pick up the SGU or ANY of the Stargate Series. This article hit the mark. If it weren’t for the fact that I like one of the other series on this channel, I would stop watch SYFY all together.

April 11, 2011 at 11:19 pm
(663) John says:

As with every “different” non formula shows(especially those from a franchise) there are those who refuse to no matter what not like the show(just try to convince those who worship Captain Kirk that Picard is better). The only real common thread in this installment of the SG franchise is the gate and not much else. That is what made this show so different and enjoyable to me-open gate, meet problem, solve problem, go back to earth. I am not saying that I disliked SG1, but it should have ended before it did and certainly ended on a low note. Stargate Atlantis was a better show and involved somewhat of the same formula-loved the Wraith by the way. SGU different yet again…..for those that want more aliens and guns and so on, why not just watch sg1 over and over again? I found the characters “human” and that is what might have been the problem with those that didnt like the show-a man in charge who is human and screws up?(wow new concept there). All tv is soap opera and to say this or that is too much of a soap opera is just illogical. They cancelled SGU and like many others here, that is the only show I watch on SyFy and so I guess I wont be watching it anymore. What is with all these comments about wrestling? Arent we talking about cancelling a really good worthwhile escape that give us a chance to broaden our horizons? I’d like to give those that call SGU a piece of crap the DDT. SGU was mostly about characters who deal with so much adversity and how they survive, not about the next alien or weapon-we have enough of that with all that is going on in the world now.

The creator of this show tried something different picky people turn there nose up at it. Just cause your use to corn flakes doesn’t mean cheerios is a bad cereal.This show is well made well written to bad the narrow sighted bean counters couldn’t see it. What if star trek tng was taken off the air before the story unfolded and because it wasn’t like tos. There isn’t any other scifi show out there like stargate or star trek, even in their different shows they still told a good story…. ok maybe not star trek ent. That’s my piece…. bring back sgu you pukes!!!!!

(666) Mike says:

I think that the show is great i hated it at first but then it grew on me. i Think the character are great, i Think that the fact that there stuck on this ship most of the time sucks and that if that ship would just reach it destination a new world an out post with a world of probabilities and perhaps some anchants or enemy’s perhaps a little familiar, perhaps a universe of its own with different rulz strange customs, a world to get to know, oh it could have worked and changed atmosphere. like startrek enterprise series 3. changes so dramatics i wouldn’t go back in to the past though at least not to far if you did.

Any way Characters are good situation needs change, get off the damn ship. settle in for a war.

What a shame that a series like SGU that has such a refreshing and captivating story line can be let go so early. I was very much looking forward to see the series develop over the years. My only hope that another company will pick up SGU and allow it to complete and MGM can realize its huge mistake by letting this one go, Like the star wars franchise.
Shame MGM Shame

This can be a very smart move. SyFy canceled the show for good marketing reasons, left it unfinished and the plot ready to be continued without major changes. Two, three years from now I see a season 3 announcement and an epic battle for earth between lucian alliance and stargate command with the help of Destiny from Earth’s orbit after lucian alliance destroyed antartica’s ancient base. Destiny’s destiny in this show is tied to Earth’s destiny. Be patient…show is not over.

April 12, 2011 at 6:14 pm
(677) Ev says:

Very annoyed, not surprised, seems no serious sci-fi can survive the ratings war.

SGU started slow as has been mentioned before, overall just like most series the first 5 eps were building eps, setting the background and the story in place, just look at BSG for an example of this, I personally REALLY didn’t like most of the first season of BSG, it was just too slow for my liking.

However SGU, not only got more interesting / funny / likeable as the first season went on, but season 2 has been totally brilliant, the characters have REALLY come into their own, and there is even some of the “old SG” humour appearing now and again (though I have to say I hated SGA and only watched SG-1 as there was nothing better on).

I think SGU’s problem all along was that it wasn’t silly enough to appeal to SG-1 / SGA fans and because of the silliness attached to those 2 SGU was immediately a turn off for serious sci-fi fans (e.g. BSG fans).

I mention BSG a lot in the above as with all the sci-fi out there it is probably the closest match on acting / writing compared to SGU.

This really was a step up for Stargate as a franchise, a step away from the frankly ludicrous silliness that plagued SG-1, and GOD AWFUL acting in SGA.

Even Ben Browder couldn’t save SG-1, taking his character straight out of farscape and sort of shoe-horning him into SG-1 was NOT a good plan IMO, despite how good Farscape was, the universe it was set in called for the mad erratic behaviour of the characters SG-1, didn’t, and it didn’t fit.

Anyway, I will watch the rest of SGU, if only for the fact that this season has been superb and I will soak up as much of it as I can before there is no sci-fi left on TV, whish as far as I can see is where we are heading.

After all to make a silly, light hearted program like SG-1, it doesn’t need to have the budget of a sci-fi program, why would the networks even bother.

Goodbye SGU, bar FAR the best of the SG franchise :( .

April 13, 2011 at 12:51 am
(678) A Fan says:

I have mixed feelings about the show, the first season was really slow but it started to pickup recently – it was starting to get interesting.

But the way the two writers slammed the old SG-1 / SGA fans saying how they were reaching new fans who could appreciate their writing was way out of line. Bite the hand that feeds you & you know what comes next.

I am really upset for the actors the show was really starting to take off but the mistakes made earlier costs them time and fans. What a waste, but don’t forget this is how they cancelled SGA since the writers had a new vision and those fans were just as upset.

April 13, 2011 at 3:31 am
(679) Nicholas says:

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!? Syfy you suck at being a channel.. like, really badly, I hate you. Cancel all the good shows and then you put crap on tv… I don’t get it. Farscape, now this.. won’t start Firefly back up.. grrr I hate tv. SGU was so awesome and now you’ve just ruined everything. Guess I’ll have to stop watching Ghost Hunters and Destination truth, the only other two decent shows you got.

April 13, 2011 at 5:40 am
(680) Mega says:

the SGU show is one of the best sci fi stories I already saw. I agree that the beginning was slow, just until I realized that this story wasn’t like others. This was real. They weren’t a well trained crew, as we saw in other SG, they were a pack of people stranded together who have to survive. We I realized that I got delighted with it. The story line is perfect. We are introduced to the characters (the Kino series was amazing on that) and we start to see the dynamics of a group (correctly I would call it groups, scientists, military, political…) that has to learn to work together as a team to survive. On the other hand, the show allowed us to dream, as a sci-fi should. We could imagine ourselves as being part of the crew and adapting to the others.
Hope they do not cancel SGU. It would be a bad move in TV history.

Stargate Universe was slow to start, and it took me awhile to get into Caprica, but those are great shows. And they get cancelled? Can’t we have just a few great SciFi shows to offset all the junky SyFy ones? Maybe when this channel changed its name to SyFy, that was the beginning of the end of good programming for SciFi fans. I don’t watch the SyFy channel unless something good is on — something SciFi. Nothing lately qualifies, including all those really badly written alien and monster movies. But guess what? I’ve got more than 200 other channels to pick from … ByBy SyFy!

SyFy, once again catering to the mindless non-SCI-FI fans by cancelling another show requiring an IQ more than 85 to enjoy.

Nice job Syfy you twits, why not just pop in more wrestling and get that coveted redneck crowd to call home…

I think its high time a network focused on science fiction get launched and destroy this mtv syfy crap station

Eureka over Caprica. Warehouse 13 over SGU, Syfy is no longer a scifi station, its now fictional comedy and slapstick..congrats on taking your vision and reducing it to low grade b rated audience and rasslin fans.

I hear nascar is looking for more people to show their races…and why not change your name and logo again to reflect your actual target mindset

perhaps NoSy Perhaps its time to launch “ouch my balls” since your wanting to turn the movie idocracy into a business goal.

SyFy, you totally just got off my favorites…will tune into FX in my free time. SciFi fans, time to boycott SyFy for awhile..put them on time out.

April 14, 2011 at 3:13 am
(687) SaturnFX says:

One last comment
GardenGoddess spoke a choir right then and there.
Give the actual science fiction fans a bone…ok, its understandable, not enough ratings = ax…however, consider this…instead of doing endless “ghost hunters” reruns to infinity on a wednesday…toss in something that -is- brilliant but underappreciated for the intellectuals.

Return Caprica…or keep SGU on (or make us haters eat our words and do both)..give us a show that isn’t full of fun bells and little depth.

in turn, you have something you are proud of, and that over time more will watch (sometimes slow builds become the strongest pillar).

I know the execs don’t read forums, but perhaps someone reading through all these comments in a position to suggest securing the base hardcore fans of scifi will follow through..

Toss us a bone..because for now, with the endless cancellations of big names, you lot are looking like nothing but fail anyhow.

Disappoint slowly creeps in! I really enjoyed the story line of Stargate Universe. I was happy when the series started, disappointed when I had to wait for several months for it to resume. Since Syfy doesn’t have the gumption to give the series a chance, I guess I will go back to my SG-1 and SG Atlantis DVD’s until they can figure out whats going on. Come on Showtime, pick up the series or create a movie to tie up loose ends.

Yes, this is truely a shame. I recently discovered SGU having not watched because I was under the belief it was in line with the original of which I was not really a fan.

After watching the first couple of episodes on streaming, I very quickly got sucked in. It has a great story line, great acting, and effects which are not inline wiht the usualy SyFi cheese.

Honestly, I’m not a huge SyFy fan, but this is one of the most compelling series I have seen on any network for a very, very long time. I think word of its quality is slowly getting out; however, on the heels of its predecesors it has an uphill battle (no offense to you SG-1 and Atlantis fans).

I’m very dissappointed that this series is being pulled. I really thought you had a quality show here.

April 15, 2011 at 12:49 am
(690) JOTL4U says:

Guess the show was too deep for flakey sci fi fans. This was a quality show with great acting and a well thought out plot. So much for entertainment with some meaning thrown in.

April 15, 2011 at 3:21 am
(691) Josh says:

I can’t believe they are taking SGU of the air. It’s the best stargate series ever. I liked all the stargate shows but this one is the best. They really should keep it going.

April 15, 2011 at 10:13 am
(692) Johnny says:

I cant believe their ending this show.. easily the best stargate so far.

(693) bill says:

I can’t believe they,ve cancelled SGU and put on a COOKING show. I,m sure that will be much better sci-fi.

(694) JJ says:

I just read that SGU is being cancelled. I’m in shock. What is really wrong with it? I can only echo many of the previous comments. Bring it back!

BOOO “SyFy” !

April 16, 2011 at 4:14 am
(695) Steve says:


Give it up! It’s a waste of time.. I gave up on Sci-fi.. Oops.. I mean SyFy.. lmfao..

The only way I’ll start watching “Sci-Fi” again is if they make new episodes Firefly. :P

Till then I’ll just abuse Netflix.

April 16, 2011 at 5:27 am
(696) PoeticJ says:

Will someone PLEASE bring back an original SCI FI channel – where we can watch original sci fi “shorts,” sci fi that makes us think, challenges our human assumptions, dares to be creative, welcomes great writing, allows room for original sci fi movies and good actors that want to work in sci fi? I think we need to take our sci fi channel back – take it back from those idiot NBC people who could care less about the genre. We need an independent sci fi station – wasn’t that how sci fi started out?

(698) frank says:

well i think all of the above sucked… specially eureka and caprika. sgu had my eyes stuck on the tv specially when it was out for netflix it was way better then the two shows i mentioned. and the cast was not cheeeezy. that all played a very good role and the computer animations where way better than craprica and eurstinka. i was very impressed with the cast and the show. by far one of my favorite shows to this day. long live destiny!!!!

April 16, 2011 at 10:49 pm
(699) Smart shows vs brainless says:

Once again the brainless shows survive (W13) while smart shows (SGU) get cancelled. Example: SG1 was pretty lame, but look how long it lasted. Finally they made a SG show that is great and it can only last 2 seasons.

April 16, 2011 at 10:51 pm
(700) Washington Rush says:

I was very skeptical about SGU, after the first couple episodes I lost interest. But having nothing else better to do I picked the rest of the 1st Season up and I must say I grew very found of the characters, and cast. Yes at times it was a bit slow. Bare with it though as it has been pointed out, they were offered a loose 5 seasons to build this season up. And only just into the second season they get the axe. Just as I was really emersing myself into this SG franchise. It is a very great show, written very well and very great acting. Rush and Eli are brilliant and the rest of the cast. Just comes together in such a great way.

Someone please pick up this show, continue what your doing. Make me want more!!!

April 16, 2011 at 11:31 pm
(701) BeoWitch says:

This figures… especially when you consider that SyFy is owned by NBC. Get any show that challenges the intelligence of the view and they are sure to cancel it. Now that I’m aware who owns this station guess I’ll not start up on any new series. So sad.

April 17, 2011 at 5:49 am

almost a thousend fans in a sinlge blog and thats not a fan base syfy? are you mad! fantasy is what we have left and you wanna give us what stupid vempires and werwolfs love stories all over again!

you are morons

April 17, 2011 at 4:56 pm
(704) kenny says:

This show had problems from day one. Many aspect off it I find rather irritating. They are lost in space but are they really?
The stones make them able to take vacations at home. (a communication device that has a range off an entire universe with no lag) makes no sens whatsoever. Not to mention the complete bollox way the story goes “one time your at some planet, next your back at the ship. ups now your back on eath”. God that sorta ruined the action completely. Allthough I stuck to the series anyway hopeing it would eventully pick up, at times it did and somtimes it didnt.
Well, on a last note, the constant “omg somone got a virus, strange illness or w/e got old in sta” Move on think off somthing els. Stargate is probably gone for good this time while we wait for a new startrek series.

April 17, 2011 at 6:45 pm
(705) Yury says:

I love SG1, SGA and SGU.
I very rare for cancellation of new series!
This movie is one of best Science Fictions Story for last time on TV. Please don’t kill serial!

(706) deltaparis1701 says:

SGU was just getting started…There were still so many directions to go in…there are 60 different kinds of toothpaste and not all sell as well as Crest, but they are still in the marketplace. STOP PERVERTING SCI FI Let there be a choice for truly sci fi fans…this is beyond disappointing. Please bring it back…keep writing and put it in a book and I’ll buy that and read instead.

April 17, 2011 at 10:29 pm
(707) Madmoe77 says:

I must have re-written this response three times now! It irritates me that a channel with such a monicker even entertain to discontinue what that name would suggest. Surely there are other timeslots for such shows as SGU. A 24 hour SyFy(scifi) channel needs to fill up the gaps with something like scifi. The reason viewership has gone down is because of the order of programming. It is difficult to wade through wrestling, plumbers pretending to be afraid of noises and now cooking shows to find the scifi. I set my DVR for new episodes for that very reason-to skip the crap put on this channel instead of Science Fiction television. If it weren’t for DVR and the very few shows that are scifi on SyFy I wouldn’t even tune into a channel that has a subscription label completely the opposite of it’s listings!

April 17, 2011 at 10:50 pm
(708) FREEK says:

Syfy should move WWE to Tuesday and put dancing with the stars on Friday. This would lead to low ratings and cancle WWE. Then move Dancing with the stars to Tuesday just to prove that a science fiction channel can air anything for Tide detergent. Finally, put SGU along with re-runs of SG1 and Atlantis on Fridays, forget the ratings, and make everyone happy.

On a serious note, I need shows that exist in space. There’s nothing like the feeling of being somewhere in space unable to run home to Mommy for help.

Any thoughts as to why Star Trek was so successfull? Perhaps it was only because we had just gone to the moon.
Hard to say… But it would be so nice to see a new one take the lead and stretch our imaginations even further.

April 18, 2011 at 5:35 am
(709) James says:

cant believe its cancelled theres still so much potential in this show and it just keeps building its storyline up its only gonna get better and then they cancel it. plus its the only show on tv that has anything to do with space battles and exploration its in its own niche when it goes there will be nothing to replaces it now that BSG has finished and SG1 and SGA dont run anymore. and they change its air time every 5 minutes so how the hell are we meant to follow it if it keeps changing syfy have ruined the series themselves if theyd of kept it at a stable time and day of the week its numbers would skyrocket and sky 1 has been similar with the airing i can never find SGU on tv anywhere and sky 1 is like the home of stargate. also how can they cancel the show when they got 17 cast nominations 6 wins and a VES nomination its ridiculous. this show is so much better than most things on tv its one thing i look forward to every week and now its going. whats more id love to think there will be a new Stargate series after SGU is gone but the likeliness of that looks slim i cant see them bringing stargate atlantis back seeming as its on earth unless they decide to go startrek style and explore the galaxy in the atlantis which i doubt will happen. and stargate sg1 aint coming back cuz thats finished. i think the franchise has pretty much exploited all the options in the time era that its currently set in without being slightly repetitive. what could be a good new stargate show could be one set say 50 years later where the earth has fleets of battleships and offworld bases and the stargate program has moved into other galaxies and begun exploring there i think a future scene could open up some great tv but i would like to see sgu run its full course and see it complete its mission and maybe return to earth.

April 18, 2011 at 1:47 pm
(710) Nick says:

I recently watched the whole SGU series on Netflix. I must admit, being a fan of both Stargate SG1 and Atlantis, I felt that SGU started out a little bit slow.. but after the first 4 episodes, it really grew on me and I enjoyed the storyline and actors develop their characters. I think the writers should have written in some hidden/functional ship technology that would create clothes for the crew – instead of enduring “Math boy’s” same T-shirt every episode.
I loved the phrase “That’s One Sweet Potato” in the Justice Episode. My 3 year old walks around saying that now because I got such a chuckle. I sincerely hope some channel picks up SGU and restarts it – I was looking forward to seasons. Loss of the show was tragic.

April 18, 2011 at 2:32 pm
(711) Ryan says:

This is very sad news. I’ve never been much of a Stargate fan, but SGU hooked me immediately. To me, it has the feel of Battlestar Galactica. It has a very good story line, amazing acting, and is far better than almost anything else SYFY can muster. This is a huge mistake, and I hope someone picks up this show.

April 18, 2011 at 4:10 pm
(712) justin says:

I think that they should finish the Stargate Universe show even if they have to put it straight on dvd, but i think that Stargate Universe is the first of its kind and that its the best of the three series. Its the only one that is unpredictable because there in space and no one no where they will end up next or what kind of situation they will get into it should be left on the air even if a few critics disagree. Who cares if the SyFy channel doesnt like it then the show should switch networks and go back to where Stargate started and start showing it on showcase. Both Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis had 10 seasons if they didnt like the thrid installment than why did they let it air in the first place. You should always finish what you started even if someone tells you its boring. So I think that if there isnt 10 seasons for Stargate Universe than there shouldnt of been SG1

April 18, 2011 at 4:34 pm
(713) louis says:

WOW who new.why can’t they leave things alone.just once can us stargate fan have somethings without people kicking it to the curb?one day maybe.but for now let us enjoy whats left of one of the greats shows ever on syfy.see you all on the other side of the universe.hell they might have this show playing over there.

April 18, 2011 at 4:45 pm
(714) Jennifer says:

I am a Star Trek fan, fell in love with the show when I was a kid. And even though I have seen all the episodes, I still watch them when they are on.
I fell in love with Stargate in 2005, watching reruns of episodes after episodes. It became my new star trek… I wasnt a fan of Atlantis, it didnt catch my attention like the other show. But boy was I excited when I seen SGU!!!
I love this show, it has so much potential… and no, i dont really know what i mean when i say that…i just know it grabs me and the story lines are decent enough (and it was so different than anything we have seen) that i want more! its my SciFi fix, my space and aliens and humans working to survive…
I get to live in a different place and ponder “what would i do?” Its not about being able to relate to everyone in the show, everyone takes a piece of there life and applys it accordingly. (them seeing there family or girlfriend related to those in the armed forces) (loosing a baby, and not knowing why) but in that hour… i got to just dwell on a new story and not worry about anything else for the time being.
and yes i agree that sci fi – syfy – has lost their touch….
i only watch the channel now for SGU and Eureka

April 18, 2011 at 10:24 pm
(715) Raphael says:

“Only three episodes left…” I found out SGU was cancelled by the narrator saying those words. Some day the technology will exist to make good sci-fi at such a low cost that it won’t need a large fan base. Any good art is both loved and hated by the public, sometimes hated by all and adored later. My hope is that the spirit of sci-fi will stay alive long enough so that we won’t all go mad having to watch reality shows till the future meets us.

April 18, 2011 at 11:10 pm
(716) Matt says:

NOT HAPPY! I too just found out. I love this show. I looked forward to it every week. At the end of each episode I couldn’t wait until the next one.

For a decade I never got enough SG1. It was and still is my favorite
I enjoyed Atlantis
I’ve never missed an episode of SGU and think it has GREAT POTENTIAL
It is a shame that so few see it.

Vampires and Fake Wrestling this is what we get in it’s place

I thought it’s Imagine Greater

(719) Crystal says:

Everyone who wants to save the show, send a little email to:


It may not get the show back, but it may make them think twice… then again, it may get the show back. I for one am really sick of the lame ass shows on syfy… agree with Michael on the ridiculous vampire and fake wrestling.

… syfy needs strongly worded letters.

dear syfy & the writers of stargate atlantis and stargate universe….
your fired! you suck! you took the hope for a future away from stargate when you gave up on atlantis. now your universe is dark and gray and depressing. eli being the only redeming quaility and the only reason i watch it at all. im so angry with you. you have failed miserably to inspire me to watch anything you create in the future. you murdered my stargate atlantis and your killing the universe. i hate you! im not over stating how bad i feel. i hope you never get another good job in television as id hate to see what other great and neccessary programs you might destroy. dear mark , please forward this letter to anyone you think might be connected to the syfy channel and to the writers of startgate universe. sincerely, sky adams

April 19, 2011 at 2:01 am
(721) Jonny says:

I like of SG-1, never liked SGA; but I found the acting in SGU comparable to other prime time TV shows like Lie To Me or
2 and half men. However, now that NBC is owned by Comcast, who in turns owns SyFy it’s going to be all about the numbers and ROI (return on investment). NBC Broadcasting is willing to give shows roughly 2 seasons to create a storyline for viewers to stay tuned for the following episode; even if it means reducing a 5 seasons storyline into 3. Caprica was my favorite SyFy series in recent years. R.I.P Caprica.

All the good shows gets Axed:
Battle Star Galatica
Family Guy (twice)

and some end epically……. LEXX

The birth of first human cylone and how it led to the beginning of BSG would have been epic. I hope someone backs this show instead of buying a new G650 plane as the ratings in season 3 and 4 would be similar to BSG.

Now that Caprica and SGU have been given the axe, much of SyFy is comprised of FILLERS, but lacks any shows of “substance”. being Human (thanks BBC), Dr. Who (BBC), Alpha (really?), Warehouse 13 (no comment).

So what sort of line up does SyFy have in terms of programs with in depth plot lines? Wait, plot straight forward material and no intellect= Ratings

Goodbye SyFy this separation is indefinite till come to your senses and have provide shows with true Science Fiction storylines return.

WE WANT A BLADE RUNNER ; DUNE ; CAPRICA when the mind is docile it’s not working and a mind is horrible thing to waste.

April 19, 2011 at 4:26 am
(722) Ryan says:

Are these guys on crack? It’s finally time that they’ve progressed to the level that the Brits lifted Scf-Fi to. It’s only frustrating to see that when a brilliantly written science fiction show is cancelled. The characters have just begun to be revealeved and you go ahead and cancel it. What a shame.

April 19, 2011 at 7:44 am
(723) Viewer2008 says:

Oh, No. I never in million years thought this could happen considering SG1, SG-Atlantis and infinity were such hit. I’d say this show was getting some where very good better than its predecessors. How stupid is this network to kill the golden goose. Just read these comments over 700 and almost all in favour of this show.

:( not happy…not happy at all.

April 19, 2011 at 11:10 am
(724) steve says:

This was the best out of all three additions. I have watched these shows from the start, I cant believe the series that actually gave the SciFi channel a decent name is being cancelled. Why would they turn their back on the one true show that set them above all of the lame b rated movies it streams all day. YOU DONT LET THE SUITS DICTATE WHAT TRUE SCI-FI FANS WANT!!!! No reason for you channel now.

April 19, 2011 at 12:43 pm
(725) Dennis says:

I too will miss this show. It is my hope that somehow it can be picked up.

I rarely watched the show when it was airing, having kept up with netflix and amazon prime.

I wonder how accurate the numbers are for a show given that todays viewer has so many different ways of watching an episode.

Anyhow, I hope SGU gets picked up by someone.

April 19, 2011 at 12:50 pm
(726) Christo says:

SGU so far is epic. I thoroughly enjoy every episode and think later ones have the potential to be even better. The show has the same feel as battlestar galactica and I really hope they somehow keep it going.


How could they possibly keep warehouse 13 and not this brilliant SGU show?!

April 19, 2011 at 2:46 pm
(727) guzmaniacs says:

I watch wrestling but how can you keep wrestling and take off SGU. I’ve seen every episode of SG-1, Atlantis and Universe and at 1st I was unsure about Uniniverse. I have grown to find that it is the best of the 3. Eli and rush we will miss you!!!!

April 19, 2011 at 4:36 pm

(729) dinah says:

i liked SG1, loved SGA and had been very disappointed they broke up the show so soon,
and SGU?
It had a slow start, but now im looking forward to it every week.

One thing – why dont you guys make it an “internet”series?

The whole wide world understands english, and writing from europe, i would be glad to be able to pay you 5 to 10 euros to see my weekly “dose” of SG.

By the way – any other show you have runnung just sucks. I tried hard to watch some Amanda Tapping, but thats just a fantasy crap, i tried hard to watch Eureka, but that seems to be a copy of Desperate Housewives in some VERY VERY future like city.

I think its time to head back to the written word, hopefully the authors will provide us with the “lost episodes” on this way.. buyable worldwide on iTunes or similar.

(732) reitton says:

It’s just another clumsy SG spinoff, it’s unfortunate that the people who make these things do not know the formula for a successful SciFi series yet so let me spell it out for you. We like technology, that means do not have us flying around on a giant piece of crap if the plot centers around the ship. Do not send us back in time to an old western setting, do not have the ship almost taken over either directly or through a mystery symbiotic life form, do not land on a planet that is in the middle of a renaissance like period. All these plots and situations are the anti-technology and loser of the technical audiences. Please oh please learn this and learn it well. No, really, please.

April 20, 2011 at 12:18 am
(733) bob says:

I just realized this had been canceled. So sad.

At first it wasn’t very good (the montage at the end of every episode was horrible). The characters were token, plots were silly. Their was the illusion of depth but then no follow-up or substance (the faces on the desert planet? wtf was up with that?).

But they were getting better… maybe 50% there. The premise has so much potential. I wish they’d give them a few more years so they could really get on the tracks and have a solid sci-fi show.

Idk what I’m going to do with no sci-fi shows… I may just start READING!

April 20, 2011 at 4:53 am
(734) Talin says:

I am a huge fan of all the Stargate series’. I am extremely disappointed in SyFy’s decision to cancel SGU. Like others I believe the show has a lot of potential. I was hooked to the series during the first 5 min of the first episode. I look forward to watching it every week.

(735) joeuk says:

i am disappointed that this is coming to an end in the way it is. Once again investment of my time and emotion in to a series and they can’t even be arsed to give us closer on. Do the studios not realise that even if we can’t watch this anymore we would be less likely to watch anything else they come up with as you can’t trust that it will actually have an ending.

Many shows have gone this way and the ones that are now the better sellers on DVD have an ending, at least you feel like you get somewhere. Take BSG and Lost Yes they could have ended better but at least they ended not just stopped. I think in future everyone should stick with net flicks Etc then at least you know when you start that there is an ending and if not you know what you’re getting yourself in to.

Oh and to add insult to injury the final episode will be a gut wrenching cliff hanger setting up season 3. What! Why! Don’t do that! it just makes it worse or will they change the final 30 sec from a clip of destiny flying away to where it just blows up, yey!! good ending (morons).

(738) Nutcase says:

Come on people – this dumb series had nothing to do with stargate except for the occasional dial to a passing planet. Right from the start lots of illogical stuff, holes in the writing etc. First of all – sci-fi fans and Stargate fans are SCI-FI fans for a reason – they like interesting scientific stuff and they don’t like watching stupid soap dramas – got that? So all this is just nonsense. But lets grant this idea a little air. So you have a drama in space – but you still need some logic in it. They are stuck on a huge ass ship with possibilities of getting best scientists to the ship via the stones, but they don’t explore or do shlt. They were still looking through some storage areas in an episode in series 2 I remember. ??? Nothing they do is common sense, except for the few main events they are trying to get through… And smart guys like Rush and Eli take forever to figure out some of the more simple stuff….just comes to show how the dumbazes writing this aren’t really intelligent…. Give this series and other stupid dramas like Galactica another genre name cause this is just insulting to the SCI-fi genre – and ones intelligence. Most of all – get a different name for Stargate Universe – mayge bs Galactica: Universe? The only good thing is the acting by Carlyle and maybe a few others but with these scripts, they can’t do much – just imagine the guy playing in decent, thought-through sci-fi series. SGU is intellectually insulting!

(739) Wendy says:

I have just tuned in to SGU and only because my son bought the DVD set. I absolutely love it and am really annoyed that i didnt have access to this great show before. They put that riduculous V on free to air TV so why didnt they do the same for SGU. There would be a new legion of fans out there if they were exposed to it. Why is it only shown on fox in Australia which is pay TV. Wake up please and dont cancel. I am 50 years old and I love it. There are many more like me with similar tastes but dont have Fox TV or the sci Fi channels if they do. Give the show more exposure,

What They Should do, that I think most of SG-1 lovers would agree with !

I have been with stargate since Day 1, If it has the Word “Stargate” in the title I watch it, For me it has been a Long ride over many. many years. with the show having up’s and downs.
Me my self and my wife was really wanting a 3rd and 4 season of SGU But to Tie All 3 stargate shows in to ONE to make a GREAT last stand. ” Earth, sg1, SGA ships, and SGU ship to come in at last minute with a BIG BANG, Make Season 4 or 5 somthing EVERYONE that Ever Watched and liked stargate want to see ! For this many years of stargate Someone should give it the honor to finish off with a big Bang! Somthing that has been on Air this long should agree everything must come to a End So Make it a BIG Ending with Season 3 and 4, I’m not sure how a 5th season would work, but it would be Cool to use Season 3 and 4 to Set things up for Season 5.
So Far here at the last 3 shows of season 2, JUST when things are Getting Really Good, This could piss a person OFF to End with No TRUE ending. I will be posting everywhere I can About this, in hope that it will help. Every Stargate fan should do the Same!!

It isn’t true to the hopes and potential of being a SciFi network, and in rebranding itself SyFy, and it’s decision on what to air and what to axe, proves it to be a me-too network, sister of a failing or flailing network (NBC), and worth dropping from whatever subscription package hosts it. I once dreamed of the SciFi channel being a treasure trove of past, current, and developing series and movies both great and small, but what they aspired to isn’t what I initially signed up for. Each year, they excite a little but disappoint so much more. I’ll miss Stargate U, it was fresh in the franchise and too soon, and no cooking or wrestling shows will be sci fi enough to replace it or forgive the network. . . . Can a network be folded . . . ?

(742) jay says:

I don’t understand why good shows are being cancelled; I think I will cancel cable service because there is nothing worth watching. SGU is very good show and keeps me entertained (no of the BS dances with the want to be stars again) It really makes no sense to cancel a series that is growing. What does SCIFI expect with viewership when they have a huge break in the middle of a season (with SGU I think the shows stopped in NOV 2010 and came back in April 2011) I myself missed some episodes because of the long break. SCIFI get you act together and give people what they want to see or just change your name to sometimes SCIFI.

SyFy would not have cancelled it, if they did not produce crappy tv series and crappy movies that nobody watches,its a shame Universe had great potential and now it wont happen.

I have to agree with the majority of the other comments posted here; specially the one about what in the world is SciFi doing airing Wrestling on Friday nights… what a waste and 2-hours no less!!!

SGU is a wonderful show, full of talented actors and well put together scripts.

Who the hell did SciFi hire for its program director anyway; you guys are looking more like NBC’s programing work.

Get it together you guys, don’t loose focus on the fact that you are a SciFi channel, NOT NBC!!!

(746) wayne beckett says:

Can’t say I’m surprised. For me it was just too grim and gloomy with hardly any characters I could empathize with. It was the Star Trek Enterprise of the SG universe. There comes a time where it just looks tired and tedious.

(747) stargatefan # 1 says:

bring stargate back. i understand its been a long ride for staregate, a very good one at that, and maybe itas hard to find ways, to make the sgu interesting but the writers did a good job i think. i was skeptical @ first thinking how interesting could being stuck on a spaceship be, but from episoed 1 i was hooked. i’m a big stargate junkie there hasnt been an episode from sg1 or atlantis or sgu that i havent seen, just bring sgu back and axe these stupid ghost hunters crap on syfy. PLEASE

(748) tobysmom says:

I wish I could dumb down just like most of America has – I would enjoy TV a lot more. Haven was interesting, as was Eureka. Warehouse is just stupid. Stargate Universe was engaging and intelligent as were the characters. Maybe we could have another cooking show, or a dancing contest, or reality show where 20-something girls do rude things that would get them arrested in real life. Argggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhh.

April 21, 2011 at 9:48 pm
(749) JamesMauler says:

While I never got into SGA, I followed SG1 from Showtime to SCI-FI I mean, it just kept getting better. SGU seemed to branch from SG-1 Better than SGA. You got to know the characters, their life though the use of the stones. But I am sorry to say, I won’t be watching SCI-FI much longer because they keep killing all the truly good shows. They killed FARSCAPE and it had such a good run. The two movies afterward didn’t do the show justice. It was something to apease the fans. With that being said, I can only assume that SCI-FI will do the same chop job to SGU. I hope that some other network will pick them up and bring them back. Alot of this falls on the heads of those who changed the lineup from Friday, to Tusesday and now Monday. Even with the show ending it’s still the one night a week I currently look forward to.

April 21, 2011 at 10:32 pm
(750) JerseyGuy says:

This just sucks….I wasn’t sure about the series at first but after catching the first season on Netflix I was hooked. Sci-Fi ruined this show when it decided to bounce it around on different time slots. I hope they would reconsider, The writer of the article was right! As the story-line progresses you really become attached to the characters and are left at the edge of your seat wanting more! Great cast and great writing! If they don’t do the right thing then hopefully TNT will take it like they did with Southland or Showtime!

April 22, 2011 at 12:57 am
(751) Old Guy says:

It has always struck me strange that many who watch SciFi are troubled by a story that does not leave them feeling warm and content. It would be hard to believe that a story like SGU presents could be anything but dark and gloomy. As I have grown older I find myself enjoying more mature story lines. SG-1 and SGA were okay but the characters where plastic and somewhat slapstick. SGU is a little gem whose story line reflects the people we are. The characters are flawed, yet more lifelike than any character in SG-1 or SGA. The story is slow to start but it picks up. I have turn others on to SGU by following My Rule: watch four shows back to back, then decide.

The problem is with the networks find shows expensive. Each year they use to buy 26 episodes, then 24, 22, 18 and now 13 or less. At 1 show per week this is 3 months of viewing. The networks look at viewers per Nielsen count and figure out the return per investment. The networks are willing to run all kinds of garbage if the price is low enough. The SGx shows have been produced in Canada and the exchange rate has a lot to do with a series surviving. SG1 season one Canadian dollar was below 0.80USD, low of 0.63 in 1998. It stayed below 0.75USD mark for years. 2007 it hit 0.90USD and SG-1 was cancelled followed by SGA.

SGU was ordered at less than 0.90USD. Cancelled in December 2010 at 1.00USD and today Canadian dollar is worth 1.05USD. Good luck getting SGU season 3 unless a partner in another country comes forward. Maybe we could move production to somewhere like India. Based on the number of call centers they have taken from the rest of the world, I would think their economy is weak enough that a whopping 52 shows could be produced for the same money.

April 22, 2011 at 6:59 pm
(752) Kostas says:

If is so expensive with real characters make the SGU cartoon.

April 22, 2011 at 7:13 pm
(753) Travis says:

Well this breaks my heart, I have looked forward to the next episode and watched the series religiously and to see it end breaks my heart! I have watched every episode of the Stargate franchise, huge fan! I saw this series having GREAT potential and it kept getting better. I WANT MORE SGU!!!!!! Don’t take this piece of the Stargate franchise away from all of us Stargate fans. Oh and a side note, make a movie of SGA to at least finish what happened after Atlantis landed on Earth, kinda left a cliffhanger and that pretty torturous.

April 22, 2011 at 10:46 pm
(754) Old Guy says:

I do not think the majority of the fans would settle for a cartoon. I would love to see the USA network, Sky1, Global, and few other international networks share in the cost of production. A good example is BBC who has partnered with other networks to produce Dr Who.

By the way there are many “SciFi” shows I do not think are top rate (or even SciFi). I can’t say SG-1 or SGA hit my top 10, but guess what, I made an effort to watch them and even buy a few DVD’s. Sounds stupid but I wish to support SciFi productions. The other option is to bitch, complain, and not watch the shows. The reward for such efforts is Friday night Wrestling. Go ahead shoot yourself in the foot.

(761) Scott says:

Why even bother now? I officially have cancel fatigue. Why should a viewer even take the time out of their lives to get to get interested in a storyline only to find that just suddenly stops? It seems that every decent TV show that I get into, suddenly gets canceled. Life is too disposable these days and so is the hard work and dedication that goes into creating such shows. The original Star Trek TV series suffered a similar fate. BIG mistake! Look at the whole Star Trek franchise now! Just imagine if the idiots who made such similar decisions back then did not cancel the show. We would not be stuck watching the same 80 episodes over and over again. As I have glanced at some of the completely mindless prime time sitcoms on the major networks, I honestly felt ill. It is not only the shows TV themselves that repulse me. What repulses me more is when I realize that this is where we are now as a race. These are the kind of shows that people actually enjoy. These are the shows that do not get canceled. Human beings as a race have not evolved enough to be able to enjoy such shows as SGU. Such shows are too complicated and too deep for most people. They require such things as “thought”. It must hurt too much. People are STILL listening to laugh tracks that were recorded over 60 years ago from audiences who were viewing silent movies! Everyone laughing is DEAD! And so now is SGU. RIP.

April 23, 2011 at 4:54 pm
(762) Ed says:

I have been a sci-fi freak all my life and cannot believe that they have canceled SGU. I couldn’t believe they canceled SGA either. The background stories established in the original SG1 has been the linchpin over the years. It’s a real shame that the characters created by David Hewitt, Amanda Tapping, Robert Carlisle, et al are apparently finished on screen.

(765) cody says:

hell no. sgu to me is way better than the other shows they got showing on syfy, and how can they just cancel a show that got them the most viewers just to go to that Chanel. how can u just let something like that die, SGU has more twist and turns than any other show that i have ever seen. whoever is running syfy now, is stupid and retarded, or has forgotten and killed wat it use to b. i just cant believe that they just going to kill the show that started them.

This sucks. This is a great show, my wife doesn’t care too much for SciFi in general, and loves this show and now wants to watch more SciFi. Comcast is the devil and now controls NBC which is probably why this got cancelled.

If almost 800 people care enough to find a site to complain on, then I wonder how many people a) don’t know it’s getting canceled, and b) if the 1% rule holds

They should have text polling at some point. ‘To save the show text SAVE to #…’ and forget about exceedingly irrelevant Nielson.

April 25, 2011 at 12:11 am
(770) John says:

I think SGU started slow and kinda sucked in the beginning. BUT it is an amazing show! its really turned into something I love watching. the character development is great, people are changing and growing on screen. the story line is much more mature and intelligent (maybe that was the issue?)

i wish it wasn’t canceled… Showtime should buy the franchise back to finish it properly.. after all wasn’t it showtime you started it (the first 5 seasons i think right, then it was bought when they decided to cancel it) how cool would that be!

No more Dr. Rush… No more Eli… Why do they let shows that have no potential stay on and toss the good ones? This show is fantastic with great characters and has such possibilities. Way to go Scyfy – you fail in my books by letting this show go! I really hope that Showtime picks this up.

April 25, 2011 at 10:18 am
(774) Sam says:

When you look at the syfy channel now just count how many science fiction programs there are not many its mostly fantasy now thats why they rebranded to syfy instead of the science fiction channel its just a name of a channel not a statement of what programs they put on they’ll probably rebrand it again soon once theyve axed all the remaining sci fi screw them screw there channel everyone start reading books that’d show them i loved the original SG series’s but as soon as i saw SGU i couldnt go back brilliant series and will be sorely missed

April 25, 2011 at 2:54 pm
(775) BJ says:

For me SGU was the best SG series. The old SG1 stuff seems so corny in comparison, though I’ve loved SG from start to finish. Hope SGU finds a new life and if not that another SG series emerges.

(776) Adam F says:

What a waste, this show was one of the handful of shows I watched on a regular basis. I guess by the ratings we can see where the publics interest lies. Jersey Shore, Warehouse 13, Desperate Housewives etc. What garbage.

April 25, 2011 at 5:16 pm
(777) Sunny says:

I think SyFy needs to go away permanently. It was handed series that were truly great, and not just the StarGate series, and totally screwed up. I “was” a loyal fan of SyFy, but no longer. You stopped SG1 when it had a huge fan base, then Atlantis which also had a huge fan base, and now SGU. Once the final SGU episodes are over, count me out, I’m blocking the channel forever…
Cheers and good luck with your next positions as you are not cut out for television…

April 25, 2011 at 6:47 pm
(778) Ryan roussel says:

I can’t believe this true. Sgu was the best show on Syfy. The other “science fiction” shows are just crap! The are making a big mistake. I have followed star trek for many years through its ups and downs and sometimes you have to let a show take root.

(782) Mellie says:

How disappointing. I just watched an episode and was surprised when they talked about the upcoming “series finale” not season.

I never watched the other SG series because I felt they weren’t true to the film, but I gave this one a chance for Robert Carlyle near the end of the first season. It was okay, but each episode since has gotten me more and more invested.

There is so much crap on TV these days, and I’ve been thinking about cancelling my cable, but SGU has been one of a handful of shows that have kept me hooked up. Once it’s finished, I will cancel my cable so there’s no more ScyFy channel for me — not that it’s really sci fi when there’s wrestling on anyway. There was a time when I wanted cable for that channel…. fond memories. Buying DVDs of the few good shows made these day will save me tons of cash and irritation in the long run.

April 26, 2011 at 2:09 am
(783) Dia says:

SGU is good. They were doing a good job then The so called “syfy” channel cancels it. I wish another station would pick up the series. Also wish the Atlantis movie can be released.

(784) Steve says:

April 26, 2011 at 2:46 am
(785) Spencer says:

I find it ironic that a shows development causes it’s supposed failure. All three Stargate’s managed to successfully develop their ideas, characters, and storylines. Cancelling this show is definitely a mistake, as the above 783 people have shown. Multiple these comments by the number of people that just give up and don’t bother commenting.

I thought about not saying my part, but then I remembered the 10 seasons of SG1, and the amazing idea of a spin-off, that eventually lead to an entirely new idea and new Stargate.

I hope another channel picks up this season… and for your (SyFy) numbers… I own EVERY single season for EVERY Stargate series, including the movies, and to this day, I go back and watch them; remembering the intriguing build-up of the idea that humanity will one-day venture into space.

I hope I live long enough to see humanity venture to Mars and on a journey to leave our solar system. The universe is so massive it’s unfathomable, but it was nice to see an idea about what might be out there.

Congrats to the writers and hopefully you do find another channel to pick up SGU… It has amazing potential.

April 26, 2011 at 3:37 am
(786) Tim says:

I really love this show. It’s sad that they are going to abruptly end it. Although SGU required a little critical thinking so it’s no mystery whey the network execs don’t get it. Idiots.

(787) lindsay says:

i cant believ it i friggin love SGU high quality i loved the other SG but SGU i felt connected to them like space travel is in our blood wow love the show noooooo please dont end it give it one more season

(788) Mold says:

If they cancel the show that’s the stupidest thing they could ever do, i for one will probably never watch scyfi again, i mean what the reality shows and wrestling have to do with science fiction?

My wife and I enjoyed all the stargate series, although she isn’t/wasn’t? as fond of SGU. I find the progression in the storylines interesting, and will be sad to see it go. Perhaps a movie would be good. It’s never good when a storyline is rushed.

One of things I find fascinating about the series is the visual element – the show is shot beautifully.

(794) Chris Dudgeon says:

My entire family are SG fans but they couldn’t get into SGU as there wasn’t any big bad aliens right at the start and not enough gate travel.

But I loved it as it was a brilliant and intelligent show with really great characters who had depth and many many layers to them that now we shall never get to see.

We’ve had an overdose of crappy instant action Si-Fi that goes on for far too long and when a truly great show comes along it gets axed within 1 or 2 seasons.

SGU Forever!!

(795) josh says:

I am a hugh sci fi guy but cancelling SGU is the worst decision they could made. I loved the star trek series my favorite was voyager, the ship cast into space far from home and there struggles to get back home. That’s what SGU brought was the fight to get back home. I liked the development of the characters and where it was going.

SHAME ON YOU SYFY! For canceling SGU and for telling me what I can watch. Your line up of shows on your channel sucks, you take SGU off it might as well be MTV with all your boring crap. Think about it MTV doesn’t play videos hardly any more. Syfy doesn’t put syfy on there channel, hmmm!

Pull your head out SYFY!

April 26, 2011 at 3:38 pm
(796) Jacob says:

Wow I amazed that it lasted this long. No sense of humor and hardly any acting or action. The only reason I watched because it was the only intresting show on tevelsion. Theres unfornately to much rewritting material out there. For example four different virsion of The Real House Wives. And now you’ve got Mob Wives. Standard for tv really is at a low point. Who wants to watch some old women prance around on tv makeing fools of themselves. I think reading is a better choice. Or socialize.

April 26, 2011 at 5:19 pm
(797) Brian8290 says:

Very disappointed to hear SGU is being cancelled, I loved SG1 and SGA and would watch them every week but looking back at them now, mainly SGA didn’t have a huge amount of depth or character development.

I wasn’t to in to the lack of mad explosions and aliens when I first started watching Universe but now I can see why the writers made it like this. I love the characters and plot in SGU. Every week it gets better and I really hope SiFi wise up

All I can say is I personal would pay good money to see more universe episodes

April 26, 2011 at 6:01 pm
(798) GingerBen says:

As far as Stargate goes I think SGU is breaking away from SG1 and SGA, and is becomeing the best show on Tv for along time. Its just a shame that it has to end, i’m gonna take a wild stab in the dark and say that the show’s finale will be on the big screen that will rake in the £($). Thus the tradition continues, with the ending of the past series, the true Stargate fans will again never get their wish of seeing a fitting end to any of the Stargate shows. With the number of stargate fans out there and enough willing Sci-Fi fans around the show could be reborn if only the fans had a voice, with great shows being cancled left an right because their to old or the fans they have never had a chance to express their love for the show. As the final episodes haven’t yet been aired we still have a chance to save the show, even though it has been cancled all it takes is the convincing of a few friends or relatives to give the show a try and maybe it could be a new beginning.

(802) Kevin says:

Wow.. this was undoubtedly the best of the Stargates shows, hands down. Amazing acting (yay Canada power!), well displayed and designed 3D backgrounds and movies. This show could have gone much more than 5 years if it wanted to… learn more about the ship, repair the ship, more encounters, more planets, more 3D designs of the universe, more creativity!

My life will cease to exist if someone doesn’t pick this up.

April 26, 2011 at 10:26 pm
(803) StargateLover2910 says:

What syfy doesn’t understand is that virtually no one watches TV anymore. I haven’t paid for cable for 2 ½ years now. I’ve found every show I love online (also movies). I have even found a site that lets me download old and new complete series commercial free and virus free for free. Just one hour after the new episode plays on the East Coast I download and watch them one hour (give or take) before they play here on the West Coast. The downloading site even has 155,845 (and counting) “Likes” on Facebook.

Yes, all Stargate SG:1, Stargate Atlantis, Stargate Universe, and even the Stargate Infinity episodes are on that site. Also the movies Stargate (1994), Stargate: The Ark of Truth, Stargate: Continuum are on the site.

(804) jaydoubledub says:

Disappointing! No reason to even keep watching SGU now! I was actually sh***ing kittens looking online for the “Epilogue” episode that I missed yesterday (and forgot to DVR) for about an hour now. I found this thread and now, frankly, I’m pretty pissed off! This one was really a great series and now it’s wasted. MOST LIKELY due to greed somewhere in the mix. So much for relaxing after “a case of the Mondays”!

Seriously though, don’t drop this episode. WH13 was okaaaay, Being Human is cool, but, none of them are Stargate Universe. Heck, even SGA was only so-so on the “awesome scale”.

April 26, 2011 at 11:39 pm
(805) Thomas says:

The reason for all this axe doing is because these people thing something or someone new to the team being right out of school has the best ideas and such.

These tv shows go in the same direction I myself have seen many many great MMO games go.

I seen SG-1 from season 2 and watched it till it died.
Then SGA came out wasnt too fond of it at first being they was replaceing RDA since his cluelessness was comical to me with another version.
They new guy actualy fit the part pretty well I might say on SGA they acted so much alike.

Then comes SGU well felt more like a drama soap at first but as I do I gave it a shot as something new and took great intrest in it further after a few episodes.

Who ever is makeing them seems to be going in the directions that I think once it gets viewed by people they will watch it I mean gimme a break here.
My wifes father is almoste 60 watches old stuff thats black and white but he watched SG1 and SGA he didnt know avout SGU untill I told him.

I went to his house one night and what he had on was SGU.
Now this guy is nearly 60. Just because you dont get letters telling you things you want to hear doesnt mean people dont watch it. They do just try to air the things before you do those gay shows like being human and such.

Same goes for the MMO world a great game is born then axed right out of closed beta. A beta tester takes that game and creates a private server. Now the game has over 100,000 players on a daily basis.

Open your eyes close your ears and shut your mouth.
Then you might be able to see where something is going and where something is not.

Look for the one makeing the cuts and dont watch anything thats promoted by them this is an easy way to resolve there stupidity.

I should have thought and said this before instead of all I said lol.

Think about this, the reason for the ship was to head to some signal picked up supposadly at the end of the universe that could hold the answers to the begining of time.

I am willing to bet that the Stargate seasons wasnt axed because they thought they wasnt doing no good.
I am willing to bet the reason is religion.
People believe in many diffrent reasons for us being here but a religiouse nut “no offense to anyone” might find that offensive and sent in to cause this to be shut down.

Think about it, every episode potreyed a higher being in some form the Anchients was the ones on SG1 and SGA now SGU is targeting a large energy at the edge of space and time.

i hate it when the tv companies cancels the really good shows that can and will make a good impression on the people . plus i think due to the tv companies greed and fears , they choose to just axe the shows off , because they have done this for shows like farscape, lost, star trek, stargate universe, etc.. the list goes on, they dont want the people making a religion off a tv show , this is done out of fear so the tv companies and the government choose to axe a great show thus killing everything about the on what the tv show could really stand out for. The tv companies and the goverment dont want the public changing their mentality for a postive good way of life , thus they choose to axe a show that can change humanity, I double dare the tv companies not to axe the great tv shows and leave em running even if the viewership is low or high or if it make more money then the tv companies can handle . nowday we are lucky to have a tv show last more then 4 seasons , i bet sgu could last 4 more seasons :)

(810) Shay says:

what a joke! a redicilous show like Sanctuary just keeps on going , while a masterpiece like SGU is being cannceled. amazing what happend when you let a first grader run a network. i mean at the button line its all about the money. quality has nothing to do with TV. pretty soon all that will be left would be a reality shows. this show could have easily picked up the ratting in a heartbeat, but no, it has to go. because a season of SGU cost about a year salary of a network executive, and really, what to do? give those a**holes more money for another house in aspen, or renew a masterpiece. i think that its quiet clear…

(813) Yvonne says:

NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! They CAN’T have axed SGU!!! It is ABSOLUTELY Brilliant!! Definitely on par with the Stargate (SG-1 etc) franchise!! Why? Maybe if they would put it on in a better timeslot, instead of all the rotten reality shows, it may have had a bigger following!! Shame on them all!!

April 27, 2011 at 5:25 am
(814) SGNiner says:

I can’t believe the comments of those who says “the show took forever to pick up”. It makes me think of a stupid guy I knew once who told me that he never read “Lord of the Rings” because the book was too thick!
I love SG1 (see my nickname) and SGA, but SGU is on a higher level. Besides the EXCELLENT acting, it is less childish because is closer to reality, it is more about people and less about ray-guns. Rather than portraying macho heroes, it shows normal people dealing with a totally alien environment and shows REAL solutions to REAL problems (air scrubbing, lack of food, seek for medicines) and FINALLY ALIENS WHO DO NOT SPEAK ENGLISH! I had fun watching Jack O’Neill and John Sheppard, but I will really miss Destiny’s crew. And to those who says that they could not really “click” any character, I say that Sgt. Greer is the thoughest, meanest, coolest dude on the ship and him alone brings the show one notch up. I do hope that another channel picks SGU up, SyFy can keep broadcasting stupid shows for tapioca-brained people with the culture of a walrus and the attention span of a fly.

(820) SaturnFX says:

The Crap:
Eureka = Town full of geniuses that are actually idiotic campy twits that can’t act
W13 = Secret organization with idoitic campy twits that -seriously- cant act
SGA = Secret military base filled with idiotic campy twits that cant act
Quant-Kitch – A cooking show
WWE – kids fighting program catering towards intellectually challenged audience
Sanctuary – Secret organization run by idiotic campy twits that cant act

The Middle:
Ghost Hunters – Halfway interesting show, proven to hoax things via whistleblowers. Credibility gone.
Being Human -It -may- have potential..could go either way, but is showing both heavily campy aspects, and occasional move toward depth.
acting is reasonable

The win
Destination truth – Amusing and interesting…check 1 for syfy (campy non-acting aside)

Caprica – A intellectuals love..cancelled because syfy has catered towards intellectually challenged as their base audience

SGU – A Fantastic and smart spinoff of the original campfest that bridged the feel of SG1 and BSG. Lost because syfy caters its programming towards intellectually challenged.

By all rights, SyFy should once again change its name to LoBrow considering they are removing intellectual merit in their programming.

Understandable its a ratings game, however, the person most inept is the program manager’s scheduling “shortcomings”.

Thanks again SyFy for total betraying the core audience. Not to worry, someone will come take your place soon enough, then you can play wrestling and cooking shows all day long. Enjoy your custom created hell

(821) prps says:

As I am living in Belgium/ Europe with no access to the US SYFI channel i feel the need to point out that Europeans would love the show (as i see it weekly through “alternative” channels).

Where is the logic in starting something and then not seeing it through to the end ?

Whats the point of having pay per view if you pay for seeing a story with no ending ?

US has a reputation of doing this not only to scifi series but to all series they launch.

Lets see
- Heroes = ….. canceled with sort of an open ending
- Sarah conner chronicles = ….. canceled with no or open ending
- The Cape = ….. canceled with no ending
- The Event = ….. canceled with no ending
- V = ….. canceled with no ending
- Firefly = ….. canceled with no ending BUT with great movie to get some closure
- SGU = ….. canceled with … wait and see …

And these are only the series that I follow.
In Europe or Belgium it is a different way of going about it (ok there are no scifi series here but non the less)
A series has an end !!!

Though in the case of Jericho, fan based protest did help to “get closure”

Please do not cancel any series without a big fat THE END !

This is truly a terrible event. The most intelligently written show on the network (who is so smart they went from SciFi to Syfy????) is cast aside while the mindless dribble of WWF and countless buffoons fill the rest of the lineup. Of course, the only thing worse than being NBC is a sub-part of NBC. These kinds of decisions explain why NBC and its subsidiaries are the worst in ratings against their counterparts and sinking lower. (What is lower than worst?…ScyFy is now.)

My wife & I loved this show! We are disgusted that it was cancelled. We have never watched any of the other SG’s at all but started with this one from the beginning. I have to say Syfy doesn’t offer anything else for us. So good bye Syfy….You lost 2 more viewers.

April 28, 2011 at 3:22 pm
(826) LockeQ says:

Like Mark above, my wife and I never watched any Stargate prior. We started with this one because the adverts for it were dark and serious, and it hooked us in. We were pleasantly surprised, and we have never missed an episode.

We love the characters, we love the stories. We do like the campy stuff SyFy does as well, we watch EuReKa and Warehouse 13, and I have been known to see a SyFy Saturday movie from time to time.

It depresses me because I would much rather lose EuReKa or Warehouse 13 over SGU and have Stargate move to Summers in the replaced time slot. Losing Stargate makes me feel like SyFy only wants campy shows (B-Movies, WH13, etc.) or reality style (Ghost Hunters, Quantum Kitchen, etc.) shows on their network.

My wife have watched several eventually cancelled shows in our life, but this one kind of hurts the most because it’s the only one we didn’t DVR and watch later. We were excited every week to watch it that we watched it live the time it came on.

Man I hate this, SGU is the best stargate yet. My feelings are really hurt that this show is cancelled. I can’t believe they will have something like wrestling amd a cooking show on and cancel SGU. What happened to SYFY? Looks like they are loosing their identity.

April 28, 2011 at 8:26 pm
(828) Paul says:

This was the last show on Syfy I could watch. Back when it picked up SG-1 it was still showing mostly Science Fiction. The name change to Syfy is only a symptom of the problem with that channel. Now that there is nothing else I want to watch on it, I might as well just remove it from my channel listings so it doesn’t pick up the really crappy remake of the UK Being Human. Just more monster programs that are badly written (or stolen) and made.

(829) Interested Viewer says:

I think its interesting that as viewers move from traditional cable to the Internet providers lag behind. There is an opportunity here for the emergence of online entertainment networks.

Viewers like myself have lots of discretionary income and want the flexibility and choice the internet can offer. More to the point, I enjoy series like Stargate Universe that can offer compelling story lines that evolve over time to expose how individual characters respond to new challenges and present fresh ideas and perspectives that I do not encounter in my everyday normal life. Space travel captures my imagination in ways that other subjects don’t.

The many comments here today are evidence that I’m not alone in this desire to see shows like Stargate Universe continue in a new format that offers not only the option of when to view, but the flexibility to watch back to back episodes on my laptop.

While viewers of such shows as this move to the Internet, its easy for cable networks to see the battle as lost, but this is not true. We remain and continue to be loyal and we want you to understand that we just prefer watching here. Come find us where we are. Our wallets are open to you.

love the Stargate SG-1 and Universe. Just hated the characters/actors in atlantis. Universe did ruin itself by starting with terribly slow shows, if you hung in for the 2nd season your lucky. What was with the opening though. It couldn’t afford to make a real opening like SGU or The Simpsons to the show instead of doing a super long recap every time. That was so annoying.

Shame, back when it didn’t completely suck, SciFi was the one channel I turned my tv on to, and remained when I turned it off.

I’ll be tuning out – not clicking it on. : (

The show was definitely getting better I think they started it a little too slow and perhaps lost some market share early on a shame as if people were to continue watching it, it got a heck of a lot better.

Personally I would prefer they brought SGA back.

(834) Nighteyesv says:

I’ve been a huge fan of the Stargate franchise since the beginning and the problem has never been the show it has been the Execs constantly attempting to give it the axe, stopping seasons midway through and then not bothering to give more than cursory notice of when it would start airing again. When SGU first started up I didn’t even realize it was airing until the third episode in and then they cut season 2 in half and didn’t realize that had resumed until a couple weeks later. Despite the slow start SGU in my opinion has probably been the best of the three providing a level of depth to the characters that you rarely find outside a book. To any Execs from other stations if you picks this show up you will gain a very devoted fanbase that will increase substantially if handled the way it should be handled.

(837) Stew Baby says:

quote #56 Richard ” Stargate SG-1 The longest running sci-fi show in history. NBC/syfy Idiots…” /end quote

I think you will find the longest running science fiction show is Dr Who.

That aside, I am also a bit annoyed that SGU has been canned, yes it was a slow start, yes it was a bit odd to begin with, and the “off world” content lacked a lot.

But it has grown on me, the depth and interaction between the characters has made it more interesting in some ways to the original(s).

There is more “humanity” in SGU that either of the two previous SG’s yes they were good and I enjoyed both, but SGU is more Star Trek than Star Gate.

This is short sightedness on the part of the “SyFy” (yuck i hate that) channel and wtf has wrestling got to do with Science Fiction that rubbish should be on CBEEBIES along side the telly tubbies, as lets face it, the “story” is about as exciting a Noo Noo.

Senior Vice President, Publicity
SyFy are a bunch of idiots who are no longer bothered about the Sci-fi genre, look at some of the crap they now put on and some of the b-movies they have…seriously does anyone watch any of them??
Considering they are the ‘Syfy channel’ they have no idea about the different methods people now use to watch this (slow to start with) but now great show…the days of watching scheduled shows are long gone, we’re in the age of on-demand TV…Syfy ‘WAKE UP!!!!’ just because the numbers for YOUR weekly figures are down does NOT mean this show has any less fans than SG1 or SGA (worldwide!)
Whether you liked SGU or not there now seems to be a lack of any decent Sci-fi series’…I can count the good ones on one hand.
All I can say is ‘COMPLAIN, COMPLAIN, COMPLAIN!’ until someone, somewhere takes notice that they are in fact sitting on a great franchise that still has a lot to give to fans that have followed it for 15+ years.

(841) Lupatrian says:

Another intelligent show bites the dust (I have to come to believe that if I love a show – as I did SGU, it’s doomed). I really liked the separation from the alien storylines of the previous SGs (which I did not enjoy), and the concept of the group alone in space and working it all out to get by. I thought the cast and acting were top-notch. A very unfortunate cancellation. Someone else please pick up this show!

May 1, 2011 at 11:19 pm
(842) Todd says:

I sure hope that SGU can find a home on another network. SGU for me has been a great Journey that I would like to see finish on the writer’s timeline rather then forced to its conclusion just to “kill” the show too soon. End it where it may but leave enough for us fan who want to see this show continue on another network. The folk’s at SyFy just lost another viewer here and I know a few others that will be done with them as well. To be honest with some of the other shows that will be staying at SyFy, I’ve seen better film on TEETH then most crap that show up on SyFy. WWE??? Alligatorshark??? Come on!! Keep SGU where it is.. Let it run its course.. I think the writers have earned the respect of making good SciFi shows like SG1.. Respect!!

(845) Sad says:

I am really sad that Sy Fy has made such a big mistake and takes SGU down. Moreover, this is it- no more SGA and SG starring actors will be seen in the SGU.
Even though, SGU was not my favorite in the 1st season, but I did not give up my faith and hope into the show. The more I watched SGU, the more I began to like it. I saw how the characters evolved, how the storyline became fascinating and exciting. The characters opened themselves and every one of them acted with passion and they were not just good, but marvellous.
Secondly, I love Destiny, of course it has not such abilities like Atlantis did. However, Destiny has its unique and extraordinary abilities and we have not seen all of them yet, unfortunately SyFy does not even gave an opportunity for that. What a shameful waste!?
Thirdly, I am sincerely grateful for the writers. Billion Thanks for your hard work and giga hours of writing!
At last, I am very much obliged to the fans, who stayed with SG, SGA and SGU!
Also, I`m writing from Europe/ Estonia and after they quit the show, then there is no more SyFy in my and my friends life.

Happy to see it go, it was never an SG type of show (more of a soap opera) and it never developed a story where you knew who was the good guy or if you should care if anyone died.
I liked all of the SG shows up to this and SGA went way too soon.
I predicted it’s demise after the second show and I am not surprised, indeed I am happy to see it go.

Sad to see this go. The stories were really starting to develop and this series had a lot of potential. Destiny was great, the special effects fantastic…
..and once again, in the same way they let SG1 die with a whimper, SYFI pulls the plug and gives us a lousy ending with many loose threads…
For that reason alone, I doubt I’ll be watching another series on SYFI..sick of them pulling the plug and leaving the fans screwed. F U SyFi.

Whats wrong with you people, cancelling the one show with most potential and a interesting plot? If Showtime picks this up i will be forever grateful and probably start watching them instead of warehouse 103,5 or any of the other more or less lame shows. SGU was the new big stargate and even did a better job at it. And that says a lot, i truly loved both SG1 and Atlantis. To end the stargate shows for good is almost an act of crime if you ask me. The only intelligent and really good show these days. Well,i cross my fingers that Showtime or someone else will pick it up. The fan-base is growing every day, so i don’t get it.

(860) Mike says:

I am so very disappointed with SyFy! I’ve been a die-hard Stargate fan from it’s debut on Showtime. I knew SGU was going to be the death of the saga, and it just makes me sad. Yes, let’s drop GOOD sci-fi shows to make room for more FAKE ghost crap and wrestling… WOOT!

When the Stargate MMO flopped it was the beginning of the end for this great series. I blame internet television sites for the most part (not just legal ones either). I know I’m part of the crowd that opted out of watching on the night the episodes aired, which contributed to SyFy’s cancellation of this series.

If SyFy drops one more of my shows I’m boycotting that station for good. Wrestling and ghost crap does not belong on SyFy… Drop the dumb shows keep the actual science-fiction or RENAME your station. Sell-Outs

There is so much that can be done and the characters are so good, the acting is so good, I connect with all of them. Damn it!!!! I sure hope Showtime or another channel picks it up and finishes it.

The same thing happened to Sarah Connor Chronicles. The good ones that Joe Blow doesn’t like always gets cancelled and the stupid junk like Warehouse13 survives. Greed and money. Oh well.

(864) Mary says:

I was shocked that SGU was canceled, because I thought that given the poor lineup of the Syfy now that the parent SG’s are gone and Battlestar and Caprica are finished. I thought it was a pretty exciting show and I really looked forward to watching it every week, especially since most episodes were in continuity. But I think the idea of a continuing storyline is what turns off most viewers. This is why Dick Wolf and all those cop and lawyer shows have the magic formula. The only problem was in the credibility. I think that many of the things that they were describing were too incredible to be true even for SyFY. I mean take the episode where Park survives while in direct contact with a star’s radiation, really. I think this is where fans really get crazy, when a show starts to insult your intelligence while trying to appeal to it. Also, the funny thing is that I always felt that the best parts about survival and such were happening off camera.

(865) Blueberry alien says:

Hi fans, someone should tell those suits at Syfy to Read this page and if they dont reverse their decision, to release the rigths to freelance writters to write transcripts for the remainder of the season. Someone had talked about this somewhere in the Page…

Cancelling the best series (award winning) series on TV after messing around with the schedule? What morons are running this channel?

(867) willQ says:

Why does syfy cancel all the good shows? BSG CAPRICA SG1 SGA SGU? at least there should be some closure on SGU… Been waiting for these movies for years now and apperantly those have been shelved as well. This is a spit in the face to loyal fans of SG series. If your going to cancel it… FINE, but with no closure? And really? anyone who has seen a SYFY movie must be wondering how much would it would really cost for them to make some more B movies. I know i have been a long time fan of the syfy channel and some of its series, but this this BS has happened for the last time. i’m not taking any more time out of my life to get in to a plot and then have the rug get pulled out from under me. Screw you MGM and SYFY… I hope the pirates download all your material and you make NO money. truley distatseful business practices… maybe thats why your numbers are so low… because you don’t treat your customers with any respect. We’re all just numbers to you, right?

May 3, 2011 at 8:35 pm
(868) jp says:

Syfi should be ashamed of themselves for cancelling one of the ONLY, TRUELY science-fiction shows they have left. All that remains are monsters, superheros, and reality shows. It’s simply disgusting that a show of such high quality as SGU could be cut while ‘stupid fiction’ shows like warehouse 13 carry on. I have no idea how they determine ratings, but no one ever asked me what I watch..SGU is the one show I can’t wait to see every week. Syfi doesn’t deserve their name anymore. There’s hardly ANY science left in the fictional & reality shows that remain. (In current production ofcourse). None of the other shows will be around in 10 years but I guarantee Stargate shows of all formats will still be getting airtime. SHAME ON YOU SYFI!! You’re a DISGRACE!

May 3, 2011 at 8:36 pm
(869) Helio says:

Bring it back.

Sify just cancelled one, of very few, of it’s good quality shows.

Also it’s perhaps one of the last reasons I still tune into the network.

May 3, 2011 at 9:05 pm
(870) fernando says:

Its hard to believe that the Stargate fans need to go through this again. When Atlantis was at its highiest ratings they killed it, and now when SGU was getting REALLY GOOD they do it again. There is just no incentive in emotionally get involved with anything Stargate related.

May 3, 2011 at 9:12 pm
(871) Blagio says:

SGU is one of the few shows I DVR and never miss. Shocked when I saw the Series Finale trailer… WTF! Yes all good things in life must come to an end, but things were just getting started.

I guess there will be even less TV watching in my household. Hell I may just cancel my subscription all together.

May 3, 2011 at 9:42 pm
(872) Warzog says:

I’ve been a science fiction fan since the 1950′s, and I practically drool at the announcement of a new sci-fi show.
Most recently, I’ve been a fan of the Stargate SG-1, and Stargate Atlantis shows, where one can follow the exploration of the universe in more detail than in many previous sci-fi shows.
When Stargate Universe was announced, I was saddened at the ending of Stargate Atlantis, but hopeful of the promise a new direction might take.
I have watched every episode of Stargate Universe, and I am quite dismayed. Imho, Stargate Universe is about a bunch of religious crybabies in a “Lost in Space”-like show, but handling it very poorly. “Will Robinson” had more guts & brains than the folks on “Destiny” ever will. (and he had much better writers to boot!)

I wouldn’t be surprised to see ‘god’ rescue them at the end of the final episode.

(876) Alan says:

Season 1 of this show was not very good at all it was negative and boring but Season 2 is awesome they really need to give this show a third season. I think the ratings would go up as this season is really going in the right direction.

u know this is a load of crap…..how does some1 give it a crap timeslot and expect decent ratings? ever wonder y the superbowl is at like what 6-630pm? because its the prime time slot….i bet if u had the superbowl showed at 11pm it would have not near the following…..i loved the SG series and now scifi u have killed urself y dont u do the honorable thing and perform hara-kiri and save yourself the dishonor of being called the “scifi network”

May 4, 2011 at 3:47 am
(878) Jiltedtoo says:

I agree, the show started slow. I stuck with it being a SG fan. I wanted some deep Sci-Fi and midway through the 1st season started to become really engaging. Now I believe the story is becoming amazing, intelligent and draws you in.

I understand how the haters will hate it, because they are shallow. But this is a good show that does not deserve to be ended the way it is.

I am done with NBC, SyFy and now Comcast their owners. I am cutting my cable after the last episode.

May 4, 2011 at 4:53 am
(879) tibi says:

SGU Season 2 is the best SG and one of the best SF series I seen so far.

May 4, 2011 at 8:04 am
(880) Neogoofer says:

Like most of the people I’m saddened at the news that SGU is cancelled. For me SGU is something beter then just sci-fi alone. Ever since the re-imagining of BSG, sci-fi just got better. It’s no longer just about shooting aliens and redheads in tight leather clothes, it has gotten darker, more personal, more gripping. I really could feel for the characters in BSG and SGU.
I believe it’s a new form of sci-fi for a new adult generation. Granted, the old series were full of adventure and aliens and whatnot, but they lacked feeling. After watching an episode from Star Trek NG or something like that, I always felt a bit cheated. The characters, although performed greatly by their actors, lacked believability.
Now with the new sci-fi series, the characters are people you really sympathize for. They are human, with all their greatness and all their flaws. Sci-fi is no longer black and white, good vs evil. It has become grey. Just like real life is grey. I didn’t agree with some actions “Dr. Rush” has taken, but I could understand his motivations. He is after all human. That is something not a lot of series have achieved yet. Let’s hope they will pick up SGU again in the future. Hope is all we can have.

I will never pay for the at least 89% crap you show on your pay-tv. That is the clou about this, dudes, wake up.
But please stop giving your money those pay TV Bastards.

But SGU is great of course. Hope to see Robert Carlyle again at another Stargate “thing”.

May 4, 2011 at 8:10 pm
(884) Jeff says:

Cancelling SGU is such a big mistake. I agree with some that it did start out really slow and maybe that was the problem. Clearly the show was mishandled in the beginning and a significant portion of the SG fanbase left early and never came back. That is really too bad because by early season 2 SGU had turned into a much better show. The story lines that have developed by the end of season 2 are riveting. If it had continued and been allowed to develope this would have easily become the best SG series yet and a landmark SciFi program. Obviously SyFy doesn’t know what they have here. This show could have been something VERY special indeed. Oh well, at least movies like manskito are safe.

May 4, 2011 at 8:11 pm
(885) Catroast says:

I will miss SGU. I thought it was a really great attempt at getting away from the corniness of the previous two series in the franchise. Don’t get me wrong — I watched all episodes of all seasons. But SGU found a special place for me. The actors were phenomenal and the story was compelling. I loved the wonder of the crew as Destiny went around the gas giant and through the star for refueling. And getting away from completely different aliens that all somehow speak English was a smart move. I was tired of that crap. I wish the actors and crew well in their careers.

I tend to believe the fools running Syfy are no longer watching the shows they are producing coz if they did even an idiot would not make the mistake they made. OK! it alright having spent money(which came from us in the DVD Blue ray sales and Fckn Commercials) to develop the story from its confusing infancy stage in the first season to the ripe and juicy second season then KILL IT is unforgivable. Bring it back or face the wrath of the Fans.

May 6, 2011 at 12:46 am
(896) Matt Martin says:

I’m a videographer and photographer and over the years I’ve watched numerous creative ideas go south. They start with an epic beginning and have nowhere to go.
I’ve watched almost every Stargate series but previously it was due to my sci-fi interest, never really the writing or character development. This was the first series that I found compelling…it was the way it was filmed and how vast its concepts grew. Art played a huge roll in production, and an overall extensive outlook didn’t end with the first big episode. There was something for me to keep coming back to because of the sense of realism and personal touch. I don’t quite understand a network cutting something that promotes an artistic approach. I suppose innovation tends to get trumped by cash flow and statistics more often than I would like to accept. Its unfortunate SGU is done.

May 6, 2011 at 8:54 am
(898) kimberly says:

it seems that the only shows syfy wants are the one that are not really sci-fi base (ghost hunters, westling, quantium kitchen). however maybe if shows aired same night same time every time then people would be able to find them to watch. unlike now when shows move constantly. look at santuary — is it next because it is now on monday nights at 10pm. is this how NBC universal gets shows cancelled. I’m really tired of seeing good shows cancelled and the shows that are a joke to sci-fi remaining on the air.

The karma has come around for SYFI for making stupid decisions on SG1 & SGA. Oh so many blessed $s lost.

Long live Star Trek.

May 6, 2011 at 12:53 pm
(900) Rotwaydown says:

I still don’t get why they don’t give more effort into letting fans actually get into the new series. Yes, I thought there was too much drama in the beginning, but the drones, the destiny decendants, Eli & rushes “e-girls”, and all the new potential REALLY started getting the old fans hooked. Someone needs to pick up the show, and watch SGU generate the fans & numbers only true stargate fans know will come. Syfy needs to see that their methods for measuring ratings don’t accurately measure potential interest. They called the axe too soon. 

May 6, 2011 at 2:01 pm

(902) Paul Guillot says:

May SGU “Rest IN Peace”

By far in keeping with the Original premise of Star Trek, StarGate, Bablon 5, Battlestar Gallactica and all of their siblings and spinoffs. I salute you and your crew of actors.

You have entertained me and made me believe in the plots and struggles in each and every episode. You are better than the vampire and werewolf and ghost crap the Syfy thinks will draw more viewers but “What The Hay!” That is what the original opponents of Star Trek said! No one would love or believe Star Trek.

A great man said it once and it is so true……..

If man never learns from history, He is destined to make the same mistakes.

My advice to all SGU fans ….. Don’t watch Syfy anymore..

Boycott them……

May 6, 2011 at 3:12 pm
(903) Glenn L says:

I don’t know about you other sci-fi fans out there, but each time SyFy, in its infinite shortsightedness, decides to axe a promising new series, I become less likely to invest my time in their next endeavor. Maybe, just maybe, the problem with ratings isn’t due to the quality of the series itself, but instead, it’s driven by a failing trust between true sci-fi fans and the corporate pinheads at SyFy who are driven more by quarterly profits than long term success.

May 6, 2011 at 3:13 pm
(904) Neal Warner says:

Unfortunately, it seems that almost every attempt at some new SyFy interpretation has to be so dark and moody that there are no likeable characters for audience and viewers to hang on to. Self-indulgent to the point of megalomania Rush, Eli so insecure that he can barely speak for himself, a commander so unsure of himself he can barely keep a crew together. Don’t see why anyone is so surprised that they’re folding the series.
Yes, it had great potential but the writers always seem to fall victim to some perceived need to make everyone hate the series so much that it turns into some cool, new, trendy flop. All flash and no substance.
Ever since Blade Runner, writers can’t seem to get away from the “we’re all doomed” scenarios. Don’t gripe about a problem unless you have a solution to offer — otherwise it’s just neurosis.
Better luck with the next series, SyFy.

(905) TvLady says:

I can’t believe SGU was cancelled. I had never watched any of the other StarGates. I couldn’t get into them. But this was BY FAR the best one. Watching and waiting to see how the crew contends with the dangers of space and trying to figure out what is at the end waiting for Destiny. I don’t even understand Warehouse 13, Eureka, and Haven. Why do all the good shows have to die???

(909) ThaSatelliteGuy says:

I was a fan of SG1, since the movie. I loved the old series’. However, I felt they dragged the whole Goa’uld thing for about 3 seasons too many, and the Ori was storyline was just tedious. Atlantis was OK. I got into it, but never on the same level as SG1. When I saw SGU advertised, I thought it was gonna be lame. I just knew I was gonna be one of the ‘original fans’ that just hated it. I was wrong. I started watching near the end of the first half of the second season and watched all episodes to the break. This is by far the best stargate series since the first few seasons of SG1. The acting is phenominal, the storyline is amazing, no corn, and they cancel it. SyFy… you fkn suck!

May 7, 2011 at 2:31 am
(910) Mouse says:

This really sucks… I enjoy SGU and all the other Stargate tv shows. I wanted it to continue. It aired for so many years that I have gotten so used to watching Stargate. I am saddened to hear that it has been cut off. I hate it when they cut off good shows. It really pisses me off. I like keeping the good shows on and just get rid of the stupid shows that are out there!!

Why is it that we live in such a hillbilly state of affairs that an involved, intelligent show is ridiculed only because its predicessor was cancelled. I mean i was dissapointed about the loss of atlantis as well but instead of being bitter I looked to SGU as a breath of fresh air. Come on, new characters, impossible tasks, Cameos of former characters. THIS IS STARGATE AT ITS FINEST. Its obvious that neither SYFY(sci-fi) or the bitter Stargate franchise fans really wanted any more Intelligent heart felt Story. So in closing i just have to say YEEE HAAA lets all go bang cousins and watch hillbillys search through the trash.

May 7, 2011 at 7:22 pm
(913) larry says:

Back in the 60s a science fiction show was canceled after only 2 seasons, After a very aggressive letter writing campaign by its fan base the show was brought back and has become so popular that there is not a man, woman or child in the world that hasn’t heard the phrase “Beam me up Scotty” or “Fascinating Captain”. Star Trek has become what it is because of its fan base, and they didn’t have the internet to communicate through.. Let Sy Fy know how you feel. Don’t let them shut the show down.
Start writing letters now, use email, for those who can, put up a web site.. Power of the Pen. or keyboard.

Well sy-fy won’t keep any good shows and putting on redneck (WWE) and stupid fake real life lame shows that should be on oother channels. Where is the sy-fi in two guys fake fighting. SGU is getting bad ratings due too bad day and time. So that’s why I just took a brake here to block the channel because all the good shows are done for on that lame channel now. Thank you hulu and netflix I can wait too see the last of the shows I like.

Good bye MGM and your gay shows

I’m sorry to see SGU go. I’ll admit that at first I didn’t care for it but it has continued to improve since the beginning. I’m a big Sci-Fi fan but with most of the shows that the SYFY channel is airing lately I believe they should change the name of the channel to the Monster Channel, it no longer seems show as many Sci-Fi story lines has it does horror theme shows.

(921) SRM says:

Loved all the Stargate series. I thought Battlestar Galactica lost focus, and me after a while. I could not understand how anyone could stay with some of those episodes. Then I was listing to an interview with the writers, who let us know that they were writing some of their “BEST” episodes while drinking at this bar. Maybe I should have been drinking while watching them, I might have enjoyed or understood them better. Capria was crap, did not watch it.
SGU, hated Rush, loved the series. At this point I’m trying to decide if it is the best Stargate series. I think they were just getting into their stride. I’ve seen all of the episodes, and when I wasn’t able to catch them on TV, I watched them the internet. I’ll be sorry to see it go.
Hopefully, it will stay under a rethink, or come back as a “Firefly”.

May 9, 2011 at 5:01 pm
(922) bigman2780 says:

Can’t believe the show was canceled. I have been watching the series on Netflix and I am hooked. The ship concept literally opens the “Universe” up. I do think they could spend less time on the characters going home stuff and focus more on the exploration of these distant planets. It would have been great to find clues and make mind boggling discoveries as they explored these planets.

What a shame! The things we might have had a chance to see…

May 9, 2011 at 7:20 pm
(923) Sal says:

Well the last episode plays tonight and I for one, like to many others have been disappointed with the direction that programmers have taken with “our station”. When you have programs like wrestling and auction shows lined up then how can you call your station SC-FY. I have been a viewer of the station since 1996 when SLIDERS was picked up. Now STARGATE UNIVERSE, like SG-1, SG-A, BSG, Caprica and very soon BSG-Blood & Chrome, will just be shows that represent the best out there but that a corporate head will not give in to viewer comments or pleas to save our favorite show(s)…it just cost too much. What’s the point in viewing what they want us to see when it is just trashy reality show or low budgeted movies. I have to agree with a lot of the comments left that SC-FY is no longer the SCI-FY channel we grew up with. Thanks again for nothing, Chris Sanagustin (VP) for axing another great show.

May 9, 2011 at 8:33 pm
(924) Lauren says:

I agree with so many comments here. This was an intelligent, realistic, dark, deep show that just didn’t get the shot it deserved. Now they expect us to watch shows like sanctuary, being human etc…………none of these shows had the draw to your emotions like SGU did. And now there is no show ‘in space’. At least none that have the intensity of SGU. Drag.

May 9, 2011 at 9:37 pm
(927) YC says:

SGU was the last and only show I watched on Syfy, because everything else has been so bad. I suppose all the time-shifting, hulu, online downloading, etc., takes its toll on being able to measure true viewership of good cable shows. In this economy, I’m sure there are many who no longer have cable but still follow SGU through other means. But this doesn’t pay Syfy’s bills. The goal is to air the shows that is cheapest to produce per viewer, and that means cheap shows, cheap production, cheap actors. Syfy could have steadily grown its portfolio of the finest shows to create a critical mass of dedicated sci-fi audience–Farscape, Stargates, etc. Instead, they killed the last brand name show they have. Now, after tonight, I can turn off Syfy for good.

May 9, 2011 at 9:48 pm
(928) Diane says:

I am such a Stargate fan. I have loved all the shows. I can’t imagine no versions of Stargate on SciFi. Thankfully, I still have Sanctuary to watch. Many of the guest actors are from previous Stargate shows.

This was the best stargate yet! How can it get such a low rating? I watched the reluctant series finale, and it ends with a terrible “leave you hanging” ending.

I hope they resurrect this show eventually.

(934) shawn says:

I loved this show. I have been following the S.G series since the beginning and this was by far the best. Way better then warehouse or sancuary. Syfy should really second guess there decision on this one.

May 9, 2011 at 10:20 pm
(935) Doc says:

SyFy has been on the decline ever since they started showing wrestling and those horrid shows about non-sense ghosts and other such lame-a** concepts. SGU started out slow – but has improved dramatically. So now, it is gone along with other great sci-fi series. I will miss it – along with such great shows as Firefly, and Defying Gravity all dead on the chomping block of small minded bean counters.

I for one will be cancelling SyFy since it’s becoming all ghost stories all the time – the shows I want to see I’ll get via other means. RIP SGU…

(936) vmon says:

I know that this series had so much potential, after watching what little I was able to this evening, I can relate to the feelings some of the others had. I too have been interested in this franchise since SG-1′s 9th season where I had picked up on the franchise. Stargate Universe I believe still has so much to show us, although it may take time for it to come forward in the “airfame” list, or so I like to call it. Please have hope, I doubt this series is completely finished, the same thing has happened to other shows and it so happens it’s happed with this show. Great acting will lead to greater potential. Keep that in mind as there are always new tactics that can be used to bring SGU back on air! THANK you SYFY for what was shown.

May 9, 2011 at 10:23 pm
(937) Sue Wells says:

SGU is an awesome show with great characters and interesting storylines. What an absolute shame to let a show like this come to a premature end. The SyFy channel is taking a big chance in dropping the best show it has, nothing else it shows is worth watching. ELI was the BEST!!!

May 9, 2011 at 10:37 pm
(941) Big E says:

The reason there never was a fan base started with the first season never having any enemies. The series was predictable and plodded on in the first year. When the second season came around and enemies came to the forefront, the series became infinitely more interesting. My being a SG-1 fan kept me watching the first year, the second year was finally out of interest. I also think that SyFy needs to reconsider the decision of canceling the series. Just rerun the episodes to get a fan base again. I just don’t understand the reason for canceling. Do they not show the episodes to a control group? Do they not know what makes a series work? The best shows in SG-1 were the battle scenes, with the exception of “Ground Hog Day.” Run half a season again and this time make is interesting like the second season.

May 9, 2011 at 10:37 pm
(942) THE GUY says:

btw, forgot to say WTF WRESTLING?????

Even if they don’t resurrect S.U. , I think they need to continue this series somehow. Syfy without stargate is like thanksgiving without turkey. IT F%@#(&NG SUCKS

May 9, 2011 at 10:40 pm
(943) vmon says:

Yes, there is a long thread and hopefully it will give SYFY something to think about, its not like everyone can always watch a 9:00 or 10:00pm airing when a good majority of the viewers are under 18 and have school the folowing morning. say i agree if you agree!

May 9, 2011 at 10:42 pm
(944) paul says:

Although it did take a while to pick up steam, I have followed all the sg series. This seems like the next level, Syfy , you guys need to look at this again, you got people turning heads watching, waiting. Don’t let it go out the same way you did Farscape, a loyal fan base, but left us empty handed. Maybe you should ask the viewers what thay want. Reality type tv shows,( i.e. ghost hunters) their 15 yr run needs to end put the tv back into the tv. we live reality everyday. Ya we really need to know what past movie/show props were sold and why.

May 9, 2011 at 10:43 pm
(945) Tom says:

Well, as always the good shows always get the AX. I was not a big STARGATE fan of SG1 or SGA, shows that went on way past their prime.. but here’s a show that was just establishing a great story line and character base, and WHAM, SyFy (why even bother keeping the name, why not just call yourselves the F*CKING wrestling channel and be done with it) comes and chops it off. They did the same thing to another great SCI FI show: Farscape. Well this is the last I will watch your channel. Just go off the air since you don’t really know what good SCI FI TV is.

To the actors and writers of SGU – THANK YOU for making what I believe was the best of the SG series and definately a great TV series PERIOD. I hope that someone picks up your show and lets you complete the series and now I feel like I’m now in one of those stasus pods waiting to be unfrozen too.

May 9, 2011 at 10:55 pm
(946) Rich says:

Fan of all the Stargates since the original movie. Production wise, SGU was clearly the best. Wasn’t Star Trek just 3 years of a 5 year mission? How did that cancel decision turn out? I’m sure NBC would like to have that one back. They have been hyping this up as “The Final Battle”…kind of false advertising, wasn’t much of a battle at all. But the ending is too wide open: Why would you put everyone in stasis pods if the series is going to end? If they were convinced this was the final episode, there is no way they are going to end it like that! It’s just common sense…the natural ending would be “The Final Battle”…but it was stasis pods. I guarantee in some form this is coming back. A back room decision must have been made somewhere, if not with Sci-Fi (Which I doubt, because they would not have hyped the ending this way), but with another station that is picking this up. It may be the “Series Finale”, but just on Sci-Fi…hey, don’t forget, Sci-Fi is the one hyping the promo!

May 9, 2011 at 10:58 pm
(947) Steve Smith says:

I cant understand how the ratings or numbers could have ever been under there standards to keep the show running cause everyone in my family watches the show and almost all of my friends watch SG-U “that’s 25 households that i know watch it every week” i know im not alone in saying this cant be the last for the Stargate saga!
I personally taking Stargate SG-1 off was a mistake for the SYFY fans and then they took off Atlantis and now SG-U!
cant we get a Stargate series that is like a TV soap show The Young and the Restless that has lasted from 1973 to today, thats going on 40 years!
You cant tell me that that the Young and the Restless soap has more viewers then us stargate fans!

May 9, 2011 at 11:04 pm
(948) waz says:

Every time a great show comes around that has everything viewers are looking for some nimrod with no taste goes and cancels it. Put on more BS reality ghost shows syfy, youve lost me as a viewer. Whoever made this call needs tp be axed!

Hope someone can get it back on

(952) Steve Boulton says:

About 15 months ago your tv lineup was changed to the adverse. Ever constantly making me change my default channel to a different one. Tonight was the last straw. Stargate gone after season 2 with that lame-ass ending, please! Fire the writers of the first series of SGU, fire everyone involved in making the decision to cancel the current series, take their combined salaries and buy back the administration crew from 2 years ago and try and save your collective asses. Times are tough and my $80 a month for tv won’t include your channel line-up from today!

P.S. My 8 year old Grandson Jacob is available if your current team needs a new Creative Director!!

SyFy Channel um, no. Oprah’s new Celebrity mud wrestling reality daytime talk-show channel, um, no that would be better !

May 9, 2011 at 11:30 pm
(953) Botany says:

Warehouse 13 has a fanbase? Eureka is soooo boring…. Haven just looks stupid. Those are the shows that should be cancled not this show. SGU was possibly the BEST syfy I have seen in my lifetime. I have a feeling that SGU will be back with some back lash of the fans it has. live long SGU and as always have a nice day.

May 9, 2011 at 11:32 pm
(954) DonDego says:

I am so disappointed in SyFy!! Caprica was okay. Sg-1 Sucked. SS Atlantis Sucked. The reality ghost shows suck! Most all their shows have the same cheesy effects and feel as their SUPER lame movies. Not to mention the wrestling!!!! SGU was really the only reason I watched SyFy… I feel now they have nothing… Just another channel I wish would be removed from my cable line up!

May 9, 2011 at 11:50 pm
(955) Markeous says:

It is really sad to see the SGU series go. My best friend and I were avid SG fans from SG1, through Universe. We would always look forward to new episodes. My friend was able to watch the first two episodes of the SGU series before he became sick and died soon after. Every time a new SGU episode came on, it made me think of him and how much he would have loved the series. I will miss the show.

May 9, 2011 at 11:51 pm
(956) 92F150 says:

I wish I had more Star Gate. It was an incredible artistic piece that I was really engrossed in following. I guess directors and producers learned the hard way that this approach was too slow to grow new viewers? While I patiently stayed with the story and really got interested, it appears the average viewer was unsatisfied long ago. Maybe continuity with SG-1 needed to be aggressive in the begining and the SGU character development was too slow with many complicated characters? I really thought they’d introduce the 4th great race of the Furlings that was never revealed in SG-1 (except in a spoof episode). Hallowed are the Ori (that was cool). Anyway, thanks for trying and I wish it had a better outcome. Please try again and give some better closure to the SGU story such as having them ascend to a multiverse or better, go home rather than drift in a void between galaxies.

Just a shame, my wife even liked it, and that’s saying a lot. I think this show crossed genders. I liked everything about it. Great cast! I have to say SyFy sucks, the cancellation was very short sighted.

May 9, 2011 at 11:59 pm
(958) zer0 says:

Extremely disappointed. I liked SG-1 more-so because I really liked the original Stargate movie, which still rocks. Atlantis started off alright, but I think it just became more far fetched and boring as it progressed. Stargate Universe has a great storyline and great acting, and it’s action packed! As the story unfolds, it goes deeper and deeper and it is way better than everything else on Sci-Fi. Why did they get pro-wrestling? I know it’s “fictional”, but it really sucks. Wtf. I’m watching the last episode, supposedly, of Stargate Universe, but I see a possibility of a cliffhanger when they go in the cryo-pods at the end. If any producers see this comment, keep it going! I want more, and I’m sure a lot of others do as well.

(960) MagicalLogic says:

Just watched the finally and I must said they were very consistent in their writing up to the very end. It sucked from start to finish. Another soap opera in space and I was very glad to see the show canceled. It was never SG material and I found it so frustrating that there was such an issue at the start as to who was the good guy. I mean you really did not care who lived or died. And to have this “Lost in Space” style of “we just want to get back home” type of show and in the end LEAVE THEM STRANDED IN SPACE?!?! I know what their thinking is, that what few fans they have will try to bring the show back.
In your suspended animation dreams!
This show died because the producers and writes did not care what the viewer wanted. Now if someone will please try and SGA back that would make some money for the network and the fans would love it.

May 10, 2011 at 12:22 am
(961) maddbacker says:

Really Eureka, warehouse 13 omg the only reason i watch syfy was for the stargate franchise. This installation was by far my favorite after especially after both atlantis and sg1 got lame. Everything about it was awesome. what a waste really the other shows are so world of warcraft (not saying there is anything wrong with it just not my taste). Sorry no more syfy for me.

May 10, 2011 at 12:23 am
(962) jwick76 says:

I knew when sci-fi changed it’s name to syfy it was a sign of the end. Caprica was just starting to pick itself up from the mess of the first half of the season…but too bad, it’s done. Stargate Universe, same deal…i was worried when Atlantis was killed for a two-season deal for stargate universe. Two seasons isn’t enough for this franchise…i remember the first couple of seasons of SG1 were WEAK, didn’t get really good for me until season 4. I can only imagine if it was killed halfway during season 2.

Wrestling. Gimmicky hokey silly science-fiction. For a network that focuses more on wrestling and horridly campy b-movie productions, i guess it’s a blessing in disguise that they canceled the last good series on their network.

This is leaving a large gaping hole in intelligent programming…i really hope another network takes the reigns, gets the new Battlestar series, revives SGU, brings back Enterprise (or reboots the series), and starts promoting some other ORIGINAL science fiction series. With the advancements in physics and the horrible economy as a whole, you’d think there’d be plenty of people at home wanting quality television to escape into for a while.

I don’t really know of any other network that’s ready to take on science fiction and do it correctly. It’s just sad, really.

May 10, 2011 at 1:06 am
(966) Mitur Binesderti says:

SGU and Caprica really show how a show can start out really, really bad (anyone remember the 40 mins of walking through desert in the second or third SGU and then zero exploration of the fascinating wind creature?) but then turn into a fairly good show. The half of the first season was exceptionally bad. From the horrible melodramatic soap opera writing to the boring, pointless flashbacks it was some painfully formulaic and tired plots that didn’t entertain but only annoyed. But then it got better… slowly.

The major problem though I think, what really killed the SGU audience base, was all the religious propaganda in the first season. Reading the message boards it appears that turned off a lot of Sci-Fi fans who are statistically more prone to be some form of atheist because they are also statistically more intelligent than the general populous.

May 10, 2011 at 1:17 am
(967) SadDay says:

I watched the last episode of SGU today and had a small cry. I have been a loyal fan of the Stargate Movie, SG1, Atlantis, and Universe. I will miss it greatly; however, my wife will be happy as the last 10 years she indicated I have been border line obsessive.

Well…they will still get some money out of me yet…..guess it is time to go buy ALL the DVD’s to ensure I will never be without.

I am very disappointed to see that they’re canceling stargate universe . it seems like it was just getting started and now it’s over, it was 1 of the few shows I could sit and watch, my question is why do they play shows like ghost hunters and destination truth, fact or faked, sanctuary, urban legends, warehouse 13 and yes even wrestling , fact is the stargate series the only reason I even pay the cable bill.
cancelling stargate universe is a huge disappointment
way to go s sci fi

I can’t believe that they are taking SGU from me. I hardly watch t.v. but when it comes to Stargate series I am all on it. I just finally purchased the complete series of Stargate SG-1 & plan to purchase SGU as well. Although I wish it lasted longer. I am sure gonna miss Dr. Rush. Love the show hope they change their minds & keep it running. I don’t watch any other series in this channel but Stargate. The only Stargate series I didn’t like was Atlantis never brought my attention. I guess I will just stop watching Syfy cuz nothing else brings my attention. Hope to see the crew in future series or movies. Especially Dr. Rush. :)

So sorry to see such a great renewal of the Stargate concept get cancelled!

(975) FogofWar says:

Well it’s done.

I think it’s time to reduce my cable to bare minimum for local channels and spend the money for a Netflix sub. I am so tired of the reality tv crap. We shouldn’t be surprised though, the network that purchased Sci-FI and turned it into the runny turd that is Sy-Fy are also the ones that took a dump on the Universal family line and canceled their long running franchise Star Trek just when Enterprise recovered from a season of luke warm writers.

Thank you NBCUniversal for some of the crappiest television programming ever. If i wanted the lousy brain-dead “sports-entertainment” that passes for wrestling today I would change the channel to a sports network. Who said we wanted staged so called “paranormal” shows, cooking and sports on this network?

Out of all the pure garbage you have on your elementary school of a name channel (syfy, boy that’s stupid in itself), you have had some well written shows like SGU, SG1 and BSG, but the rest is pure mindless, meaningless retro reality crap that won’t stand the test of time! If we continue to push the view of arguing, interrupting, foulmouthed garbage, in the end it will be channels like “syfy” that will itself end up in the garbage. For once I’d like to see one channel out there rise above this disturbing trend and show only quality “sci fi” programming for people with half a brain or better. You might find that such a channel would be a success for that very reason. Shows like SGU and TNG would have a welcomed permanent home there, and a true long-term fanbase!

Ok.. so a channel that can’t spell SCI FI, is cancelling a series that is/will be a cult classic.. so they can ruin more WWF Smackdown episodes?

I realize the wrestling is cheap (in production costs) relative to a decent sci fi set.. but come on, this show is way better than Human, Warehouse 13 and Col Carter as the vampire helper in Sanctuary..

Guess I need to cancel another cable channel.

Utter utter shame. The most adult and sophisticated SF series in years. Personality driven and grown up.

I’m beginning to take things personal. over the years I’ve managed to find a hand full of shows i actually like to watch. shows where i get involved, make the time to watch them. get to know the characters. I get home after a long day get comfy, relax and enjoy. sadly not anymore. I turn on the tv and some how one by one they vanish. I know i’m one voice , just a blip on the radar but Com-on either I have really bad taste in shows or peoples idea of a good show has been dumbed down. we have 30 or so horrible reality shows and just random garbage broadcasted on the many channels of tv we pay for but the shows i want to watch get canceled. I made up my mind to stop paying for cable tv. they have lost a lot customers due to netflix and hulu and others. good now i can pick and choice what i want to watch and all that other crap well there are a lot of people out there who i’m sure really need to keep up with the kardashians. good bye SGU, firefly, deadwood, life, lie to me, pushing daisies, the Unusuals, deep end, dead like me, to all those shows that got canceled before there time. like santa clause or the tooth fairy there was a time when we where young and believed in you then we grew up and reality set in you where to good to be true. well maybe i should just follow suit shut down and join the masses. lets see dancing with the stars, kate plus 8, or the biggest loser…….click…..blammmm!!!

I believe this show got better with each showing and can not believe you would give up on something so early… can anyone say, “Star Trek” ? This would make a wonderful movie.

This is so common of u TV productors to come up with a new fresh idea and than get rid of it becauses TV veiwers don,t watch it everytime and you get scarce and stay its time to end it as fast as it came up, a show like this had its slow start but it did get better along the way,but the most part of the show was the ship and where it was going and you couldn,t hold yourself together long enough to see it,s true meaning.If you take pride in what you do in and care about the people you should listen to them and keep or bring back star gate universe and show your pride in doing so ,me i love all the star gate TV shows and even the ones you don,t show in the usa like stargate horizion ,bring back stargate universe .

Just when it was starting to get good….really good.
What IS it with these TV executives? Are they ALL born with absolutely air for brains?
Well, I for one will not be watching anything on Syfy any more. So they not only lost a great show, they lost a loyal viewer. Just such a stupid move….

(997) CHorwitz says:

I can’t believe that they cancelled yet another great show! Lately, Caprica and SGU were really getting interesting and now that Syfy has moved them, they just died out. Now that Sanctuary has moved, I’m sure it’s going to be next on the chopping block. They moved Caprica and SGU to Monday nights and now look at those great shows. Axed because of money.

What happened to actual Sci-Fi shows? Now the chhannel has wrestling and ghost hunting shows? WTF NBC Universal? What happened to putting on good, no great shows that capture the audience’s attention and love? Now everything is about money, money and money. I hope and pray that Showtime picks up SGU and continues it. The show was great and I hope that they make real money off of SGU’s continuation.

BSG, SG-1, SGA, Caprica and SGU were among my all-time favorite shows. Caprica and SGU were designed for intellectuals to enjoy, people who cared enough to feel the background stories and actually think about the show’s progression.

There are no channels that feed my hunger for intellectual Sci-Fi shows anymore. I hope the Syfy channel dies soon.

wowww ??? you cancelled a show that i and am sure many others where hooked on.
i seen nearlt every episode of SG1 and alantis and i wished there was more seasons of them.. when i heard there were planning on being 5 seasons to a new stargate show, i went and watched them all back to back.. now am wanting to know what destiny mission is, and whats at the end of the road for them.
i understand the first season was a little bit slow but i feel that was just kind of trying to set the scene and getting you to know abit more about the characters. now i want the other 3 seasons to be picked up by another channel other that wrestling one, i mean sy fy? sure if another channel see’s the potenial this show has they will air it..

(1009) Professor Sorrenson says:

This was a show worthy of the Sci-Fi Network but the Sci-Fi Network isn’t worthy enough for this show. Pure and simple. If anyone was to blame for SGU’s poor ratings it was the Sci-Fi Network and their constant need to alter, not only, the show time of SGU from Friday to Monday but to add Mid Season finales, skipping a week between several episodes and just not being loyal to your fan base. This is the Sci-Fi network and to be honest, you guys were more interested in airing garbage wrestling shows and that piece of super crap you call Ghost Hunters then you ever were in airing true Sci-fi or quality oriented programing. Why don’t you just admit it and go back to the days when you were running those Lost in Space reruns from the 70s.

May 10, 2011 at 3:15 pm
(1010) Phil says:

I don’t see how they could have such bad ratings. It’s always #1 on torrent sites. Perhaps that’s why the network is getting such bad ones. If sci-fi was smart they should simucast it on the net, then they’d see if it was really that bad.

SyFy channel has REALY gone to pot. SGU was a great show and just as it realy starts to get interesting, it gets chopped??! Myself and my girlfriend have been watching this since the start and we are shocked that its been cancelled.

This is my favorite scifi series at the moment. I just hope either syfy come to their senses or it gets picked up by another channel.

I agree with one of the other posts regarding webcasting the shows, i think it would show better how popular this is.

i admit, first SGU wasent too indresting, but in time. It get really good, and when they got the good speed, they cancel it whants sad. All good show’s i like to watch end in time, but most are canceled. So if anyone in Sci-fi reads this, this series got the chances to make good profit if showed to its end. Its like crowing own fruits, in the end you are “rich”. So please rething this true.

Hopeful watcher from Finland.

(1015) Tom1959 says:

Sorry to see SGU end. The ending was sad just to leave them there just hanging in space.

Ever since the name change the shows have been getting worst. What is SciFi with WWF and cooking shows? These types of shows are not what I call scifi.

I’ll be honest here. I started to watch SGU because I am big fan of SG1 and SGA. SGU did start off a little slow but I feel it did come up to speed in the 2nd season and was looking forward to see it each week.

Lets hope they come out with a movie to end the series properly.

A real shame it was cancelled. It was just getting better and better with each episode.

May 10, 2011 at 5:14 pm
(1017) Olivia says:

I cannot believe that SyFy Channel cancelled a show that was about as science fiction as you can get! SGU offered everything that a serious fan of the genre like myself could ever hope for. It had the perfect balance of good writing and acting where story lines took us to places of the deep unknown, with in the universe and the characters themselves. Every week I felt transported away; and really I can not stand to let these characters and their journeys go.

There’s so much more story here.

Good stories unlike the crap “mystery for mystery sake” shows, like JJ Abrams puts out lately, lacking all accountability needed in good story telling from start to finish and shoves it back at the audience in a “now I can not answer that but here, here let me divert you to this, and tease you some more” kind of way.

Quite the contrary, SGU and their creators know how to do it right, crafting a stellar plot and fascinating conflict, letting mystery and intrigue come naturally from its characters and their trapped surroundings on the ancient ship Destiny. They didn’t have to force suspense or drive more story questions in your face as an act of diversion because they frankly didn’t have to, such good “stuff” was inherent in the the world and the situations they created, culminating in the tension-ridden dynamics of the characters on board.

Delicious stuff, I say.

So this is sad, incredibly sad that a science fiction channel does not support and protect a show that defines its very name. No, they’d rather put on cheaper reruns and pro-wrestling.

So goodbye SGU and goodbye to the Syfy channel, a loyal fan is leaving to find a good science fiction book, rather than watch your mainstreamed sell-out channel!

May 10, 2011 at 5:25 pm
(1018) Lee says:

I have watch all the Stargate, Battlestar, StarTrek, and many other Science Fictions series over the years, and I have to agree with the slowness of the this story line from season 1, but season 2 was developing with the possibilities of being a solid story line.

Many would argue where the viewing numbers came from. Based on the many comments across the internet, I think I would argue with the “facts” that based their decision. Of course the Friday night showing in the episodes in the past had more of the impact of the audience versus a Sunday or Monday night. Also what was the competition at the same time slots. Really, a good show at the right time slot can have winning numbers!

The show did have talented actors and higher end graphics compared to some of Sci Fi “B” rated movies that are shown on Saturday nights – like the recent Thor Almighty. That was bad and so was the acting.

Then things must have been getting desperate when WWF was negotiated to take some time slots. Come on – how can you even think that Wrestling belongs on a Sci Fi Network?

I too think this series was ended too soon and needed to be allowed to continue, but alas, many of the viewers, as myself, do not understand the decision makers at SciFi. This could be a simple issue that the SciFi channel has fallen into financial difficulties and this could be the beginning of the end for the long running network.

I guess it’s time to go out and buy the DVD’s of Stargate SG1 and Atlantis.

I know, Syfy, or is ti Syfy? Who knows. You’re just canceling this show because it is too good for your network, and not as wrongly placed as WWE Smackdown VS Raw or as pointless, dorky, and terribly written as something like Eureka. My god, there are REAL actors in this series, and the plot was just developing. I used to watch Sanctuary, but you lost me somewhere with the plot.

RENEW this show or I WILL cancel Syfy from my tv lineup.
Frankly, this show is the only reason I even bother with Syfy, so if you want me to go elsewhere, then fine, I will enjoy watching your pathetic channel dry up and disappear.

What a disappointment Syfy channel turned out to be. They cancel show after show in-favor of cheap realty shows and crappy reruns for profit. I refuse to accept their lame excuse. Its obvious that the Syfy channel has no real commitment to Sci-Fi or their core fan base what-so-ever.
There was a time when i did not watch any other channel. However, now I feel dismayed at the lame programing SyFy has to offer. They or the fans have for gotten what Syfy started out to do.. Sci-Fi programming is in a serious decline.
The writing of the shows is amazing, casting eh.. maybe we can clone Richard Dean Anderson. Then the ratings would climb.

May 10, 2011 at 7:24 pm
(1029) kasunagi says:

This channel has chosen to axe several unique series that were amazingly written and acted – like Farscape.

I just don’t understand why they wouldn’t give some series more of an opportunity to develop – like SGU – which was finally going somewhere to spend their money making terrible B scifi movies instead!? I mean TERRIBLE movies! Not even good campy scifi.

That’s a shame. I’ve watched and loved all the SG series, and Universe was just starting to get interesting, the characters had begun to develop real personalities – and now they’re asleep for at least three years. SYFY is really killing the chanel now!

Shame on you syfy. I love Stargate Universe, and the season 2 ended in such a way, it felt like in the first episode of season 3, they all would say: “3 years have passed, but it felt like 5 min.”
This was now starting to get really good, with all those space ship battles, I was loving it. Best Stargate Ever.

Plz someone pick it UP!!

May 10, 2011 at 8:03 pm

I realy hopped SGU would continue.. I’m still waiting for Destiny to Arrive at Planet Earth, and land the ship somewhere where everyone could see it and become amazed at it. And then they would reveal all the Kino’s footages to the world.

This is heart breaking. I felt in love over and over again with the Stargate series… first with SG-1, then Atlantis and when I heard something about a third Stargate serie called Universe I couldn’t not watch it and I actually felt in love one more time. It was a brilliant and adictive show.

My hope goes to SGU! Please Syfy, keep quality series on our TV, we don’t need anything else but Stargate series… and maybe Smallville :) .

(1040) Eitan Arbel says:

here is another vote for SGU!

SGU was really smart.
it had really hard dilemas, really good questions, really good and smart problem solving ideas, and really smart sense of humor.
it was also as close as possible to real people, real problems, and GREATE sfx (greate actors and acting too btw).
one of the VERY few shows i could watch these days – the rest are just reality crap, and Z (because “B” is too good for it) movies, and those are way over my nerves…
i just hope the they will bring it back again in (less then) 3 years (after the freeze time), because canceling that show is a REALLY BAD decision!

greetings from israel, and thank you
Peace, love and more of SGU please :)
(and sorry for my broken english…)

Me and a friend of mine from work are big Stargate junkies.I kept telling him in season 1 keep watching they were setting up the story line and all backgrounds for the actors. It took longer than I thought but they did it.The second season was really good and I thought it would only get better. I have no reason to watch the sci fi network anymore.I really can’t stand the Ghost hunters shows and Fact or fiction CRAP. I do have a FACT for you SCI FI you screwed the pooch on this one INDEED.

(1048) Tau ri says:

Canceling this version of Chaapa’ai is true disappointment to many loyal fans. This cancellation demonstrates that the executives at SyFy (NBC) are out of touch with their core viewing audience. We want real science fiction, not reality TV. When it was called the sci fi channel there were a lot of good science fiction shows. Some were a little corny but were real science fiction. SyFy has continued to move further and further away from the genre. How does wrestling qualify as science fiction? SGU may not have been as good as SG1 or Atlantis, but it was better than all of the other garbage currently on the network. Canceling Atlantis, SGU, Galactica, Caprica and other real sci fi will further alienate users so that they will no longer watch this channel. SyFy will become another reality TV network. The TV network execs only care about the bottom line and not creating quality products for a loyal fan base. Network TV is almost dead and soon all cable TV networks will go the same way. It’s already happening more people are choosing alternative methods of getting their content. Hopefully, SGU will get picked up by another network. Wake up SyFy to where the real potential is before you lose all your viewers.

This sucks!! We have just watched the final episode of season 2 and did not know until about 5 minutes to end (the “final” dinner scene) that this was it!!! My husband and I enjoy this show very much (which we dont agree on many shows at all)

Ive always thought of the syfy channel as corny and too unrealistic… but the life of these characters can truly draw you in.

Again, you suck syfy for canceling a great show. Go ahead and stick with the crap movies and crappier TV shows instead of having something people LOVE to watch.

I cannot believe they canceled this show. I have been a true fan of all the stargate series, i have watched every single episode. SGU was a GREAT story line. It had great potential, You just had to wait ’till season 3 or 4. that’s when all the audience gets pulled into it. but u couldnt even wait till another season to decide the fate of the SGU crew as well as the millions of fans who hate u already for canning the SG-1, and Atlantis. Please reconsider season 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I liked this SGU series more and more with each episode. It is SO SAD that they cancelled it. I agree with everyone’s comments about the fact that Syfy isn’t playing science fiction shows as much lately. I was really looking forward to how this series would turn out. I loved Star Trek Voyager and so I was excited that they were going to try something similar with SG. What a waste of potentially great storylines and connections to the other SG series.

What the hell are they doing to this channel????????!!!!!

Keep sending letters!!, keep sending e-mails!!, keep sending request for a season 3!!, thay have to responed…. they can’t do this when there is still descent people watching this show and other Sci-Fi shows!!!!

(1055) Joshualogue says:

Stargate Universe is the most intelligent and interesting Stargate series. I did enjoy the other ones, which didn’t often transcend their primary purpose as light entertainment to present really deeply interesting characters and relationships, or truly fascinating philosophical questions and dilemmas; those series opted instead for explosions, and a generous sprinkling of humor (Richard Dean Anderson is great at that).

Stargate Universe was more than that. But I have long realized that my interest in science fiction is more a yearning for what science fiction can be, but seldom is on television, and that it is not shared by the majority of television viewers. So I can’t be too surprised when shows like Stargate Universe get cancelled in favour of science fiction series that do not interest me in the slightest, that are both philosophically and emotionally shallow, and that present characters that are only slightly more believable than the science they present.

I can only pray that another network picks up this show and reaps the benefits of some more profitable latter seasons.

All SG-Fans…we had our adventure with the first SG motion picture , great comedy with SG-1, then run-of-the-mill with Atlantis, and the best acting with SG-Universe. C’mon this is by far the best, well-rounded spin-off that we’ve had. I’ve gotten totally hooked into this show as much as I did with 24(Jack Bauer). If we ever made long journey trips into space I’m sure we’d see all of humanity’s imperfections just like we’re seeing on this show. THAT is what I admire most in these writers’ creative aim. I’m tired of silliness and cheap comedy. Give us more SG-U.

OMG some needs to not only fire the idiot who axed this series but also the moron who decided to end it the way they did!! That had to be one of the worst ending to a series I have ever seen! I loved this series, even with some of the bad writing. Whoever did the research and found Haven or Warehouse 13 better than this needs to go back and check the numbers cause I think they got them mixed up. If ScFi keeps this up I see them putting themselves out of business. Thanks again for canceling this awesome series and take a long trip off a short pier for ending it the way you did!!!!111

This is some bs. SGU is a great series and its hard to believe those other shows managed to survive. I know at least 10 people including myself who watch the show and its hard to believe only a few others care about it. WWE?…. Sci-Fi you might be the sole reason i kill myself. The sham of this generation is sad, shows like “Jersey Shore” can blossom but SGU fails in the eyes of our peers. May god help us.

I just watched the season 2 finale…the series needs at least a few more episodes to clear things up. And I’ll never watch reality tv…it sucks…so if Sci Fi wont have SGU then i’m not watching Sci Fi at all

It’s sad to see another series go for that the SG franchise, I had read most of the comments above and it’s is interesting to see what most people say about the show. The passion and following for the show definitely there. It’s just sad to see that there was only .5% following of the show.

Given the show isn’t like the other franchise and was more fast pace, but the show had potential, it carried more then just a lot of action pack series. It had more dramatic questions of survival. Ways to improve the current situation.

It is true with some of the comments regarding SyFy, changing their plans from more Sci Fi shows to reality TV. The channel has a loyal following of people, who are more interested in the SCI FI genre, instead of some of the silly shows it puts out. I really doubt if anyone from the SyFy board would even read any of these rants, but needless to say, there is a loyal fan base for this franchise and SyFy should look deeper to the people who are watching this channel.

On a separate note to everyone, the ending may have been a little soft, but at least the show was able to end on a thread of hope. Where most shows that get cancel, don’t really get a chance to wrap up the series. At least we know what happen, instead of in the middle of a season it would be canceled.

Well, it’s been a good ride with the series. My hope are that the executives of this channel, realign to the customers and adjust the program schedule to the fan base.

What are you guys at SYFY doing, Get off your dead butts and put Stargate back together before you screw yourself into a wrestling hell that no one watches. SGU just now started kicking up some good stories and you morons trash it….wake the hell up and do something better than WWE, Warehouse etc….Jeez, long for the days of Oneil, Carter, John, Weir…now its gone…good bye SYFY, you lost another one.

May 11, 2011 at 12:22 pm
(1071) WUniverseE says:

All arguments aside SGU is and was a series of the ever increasing human desire to imagine an existence free of the irrelevant constraints that we as a race are faced with on a day to day basis, and a testament to the limitless power of the human imagination.

May 11, 2011 at 1:28 pm
(1072) jchance says:

What people need to understand is General Electric is to blame being the owners of NBC Universal and Syfy. SGU is thought provoking and on levels contradicts the focus the “mainstream”media portrays with the world.

The IOA for example has members that western nations like the United States are supposed to be at arms length with in real life. These are nations we are supposed to be afraid of terrorist threats originating from. How can you promote fear when a show like SGU contradicts that.

How can you believe a bunch of people living one step up from the stone age as Al Qaeda is, is masterminding terrorist attacks when a show like SGU shows how hard it was for the Alucian Alliance? You can’t!

General Electric makes the majority of it’s money off of war mongering and fear, SGU contradicts the fiction that GE has NBC promoting as reality. There is no way it would have survived even if it had the highest ratings in the history of the SciFI / Syfy network. More who watched it were waking up to the fallacy being portrayed as reality to them.

If Comcast had purchased NBC / Universal prior to this, it would be the same outcome for SGU. Comcast is in the business to try to control information and proves it with it’s monopolistic actions like CableLabs stopping competition from entering the market providing information or programming.

When people realize that they are in control, not the corporations, then maybe even if a show like SGU provokes thought contradictory to what the “mainstream” wants people to blindly believe, shows like it will remain on the air!

(1074) SciFi Fan says:

Has SyFy forgotten why people tune in to the network in the first place? Original programming of a space oriented nature is the primary driver to tune in at all. Wrestling can be done anywhere. Horror is done better on other networks. Fantasy is being explored on HBO (Game of Thrones) and Starz (Camelot).

The most compelling reason to tune in to SyFy is original space themed programming. Battlestar Gallactica was an excellent example. The original SG1 ran for ten years. Now what is left? They cancel an excellent program and replace it with … ? Why keep tuning in? If they give up the core thematic programming that appeals to a niche audience on cable, they won’t be around long.

I will admit the first three episodes of SGU season 1 were very slow and failed to really draw me in. However, as a faithful SyFy/SciFi fan, I stuck it out. And, since that time nearly every episode has improved upon the last. Now, I consider SGU to be the very best program any station has to offer and I sincerely urge SyFy to reconsider canceling same.

(1080) Steven says:

I cannot wrap my head around a cancellation of this show. I find it to be completely captivating and I really did feel like it was going somewhere. Concepts for the episodes seem to have had real talent behind them. I don’t watch Warehouse13, Haven or Eureka. Neither was I ever a Battle Star Galactica fan, even the original failed to garner my interest. I will await the new showing of Alphas with interest and I really like Being Human, both the Syfy version and the BBC version. I suppose I prefer the BBC version even tho the episodes are mimicked by the Syfy crew, they do spin a bit different, don’t they?

I looked forward to monday nights just for this show!! I have watched it since the begging and have gotten both of my brothers and a handfull of freinds to check it out. Everyone of them is or i should say was hooked. The ending really sucked! I know they had a limited time to wrap things up but it seemed like they left more questions then answers. I really wish sify would reconsider their decision!!

You know, watching the comments after a show has been cancelled by syfy is getting rather hilarious, fools start watching a show, knowing syfy waits till a show is popular and will then cancel it (they have done this..how many times before??…too many to keep track of for sure), and then start wailing about how they will not watch syfy anymore, syfy is making a big mistake and doing disservice to loyal viewers, syfy must hate it`s loyal viewers…etc etc…and you know what? as soon as another shiny new object (read: show) is put on syfy or by syfy, all those who “are not watching ever again”..or the like,etc etc read:complainers, will be glued to the screen again, totally (and god only knows how) oblivious to the fact that it won`t be long before that show is cancelled, and then they will be back complaining again….I have an idea…HOW ABOUT ACTUALLY NOT WATCHING ANY MORE SYFY SHOWS!!!….do what i have decided a long time ago to do, wait till a good show comes out, wait till it is inevitably cancelled right out from under all the “loyal viewers”, then download it and watch it knowing what you are in for…..sheesh common sense cannot be made any clearer than that.

(1084) DaemonSteel says:

I am truly disappointed by syfy’s choice to end Stargate Universe. For the entire series, all i could think about was how this is a superbly written show.
The first season was a bit slow, but the characters were being developed. Yet the episodes always left me drooling and waiting for the next ones.
Season 2 has to be the best ever Stargate storyline, then just as it gets really exciting, the show is cancelled with so much potential ahead.
I will NEVER watch a show that is “owned” by syfy. I am not saying this then waiting for a “cool” new show. I just cancelled syfy. Unless you bring back Stargate universe you can rot in a dark pit. PLEASE Showtime or Space. This show is awesome and it will only get even better as they enter a new galaxy. Will Eli survive? I do not know, but I wish i did.

YOU SUCK SYFY. Goodbye forever useless channel.

Syfy Are Soooooo Wrong to cancel SGU.

As previously mentioned, the main point in watching this channel is to bring decent space adventures into our inquisitive lives…

For those of us who want advanced technology, new concepts & depth of storyline advancement, please make your anger heard Everywhere;



I am a Fan of the SG Franchise from the beginning and if any of you readers out there want a chance to get SGU continued, by another company or even SyFy (not likely) You should all do your part and bug the producers, facebook/twitter the petition & shout about it loud enough, hopefully someone in power will do something about it…

By the looks of things syfy have done this too many times, TO TOO MANY PROGRAMMES Including FIREFLY (SERENITY in the UK) but at least we got an awesome film for that one…

I hope, wish and will dream of this channel ceasing to exist in the next year to three years as they will continue to axe Damn good, Decent, Distinguished, Dazzling, Dramatic & Distinctive programmes;

I wish syfy & the Main People Responsible for the SGU axe a Swift Demise & hope for their names to be forgotten and may they enter into oblivion.

Me & just over 30 of my friends across the internet have now TERMINATED syfy from our subscriptions, If you readers don’t also follow our move, You will have the pleasure of watching something else get cancelled, before its time, just after you have really got attached, engrossed & interested in it.


So I say no more to this butchery of True-Space-Age-Adventures.

- Showtime –
Please Please Please Pickup SGU & Continue it to its full fruition !!!
Many Thanks in Advance to Showtime !

I honestly liked SGU better than the first two. I really liked the fact that the characters were not superstars who could always pull some amazing idea out of their hat at the last second.
This show along with BSG were the best SyFi shows on this channel because the characters had issues.

Seriously – this REALLY SUCKS. I really can’t believe this crap.

So now what, I have to watch the biggest loser with my wife???? Seriously????

If anyone involved with SGU reads this, I want to thank you for a great show. I HOPE SOMEONE PICKS IT UP AND KEEPS THE SPARK GOING! It was getting better all the time….

I liked this show so much that I tried to watch the other Stargate series. They are too cheesy. This show is awesome, and it may be a victim of the previous versions of it. i would be interested to find out what the ratings were this spring after it was placed Netflix.

This is definitely a great show, and it’s too bad Syfy couldn’t make it work.

Battlestar Gallactica was great, but Caprica was terrible.

Most of the shows on Syfy are so cheesy that they are unwatchable. It’s really too bad that they couldn’t leave SGU going for their own reputation. Tales of Earthsea, Battlestar Gallactica, and SGU were the only quality shows I’ve seen on there over many years.

Man and they ended it terribly too on a massive cliffhanger. I loved that series from episode one! And although I was skeptical at first I enjoyed caprica as I got into it. I’m sorry Sci-fi but Santuary flat out Sucks and should have been cancelled after the pilot.

SGU was pretty much the best one of the three. Granted i was skeptical at first but it got really intriguing after the first few episodes. RIP SGU! Oh and they prolly left that cliffhanger to make SYFY reconsider their cancelation. Good way to make EVERYONE wonder what is going to happen!

(1100) Really? says:

How does the Cartoon Network have on more Sci-Fi shows than the Sy-Fy network? Because cartoons are for smart people and wrestling is for idiots. I mean wrestling and ghost hunting are fiction, but neither one is science. WTF is ghost hunters anyway? Is anyone really stupid enough to believe that crap? Go to radio shack and you too can get everything you need to pretend you see ghosts. Spooky! And the show really makes all of my imaginary friends look like idiots, and they don’t appreciate it at all.

(1101) donj says:

there seem to be many shows and movies on SyFy that have
very little credibility. To put it in more understandable terms, these shows are very cheesy!
SGU is not one of those shows! As the series has progressed the plot has gotten better and better.
The sad probability is that the show that replaces it will be pathetic.
there are so many places that they could go with the plot.
I am extremely disappointed that this show has been dropped at such a time as this.

May 13, 2011 at 12:52 am
(1102) Boycott Syfy says:

If they had made this decision in the first year, I might have agreed with them. But season 2 has been excellent, right up to the Series Finial episode which was a cliff hanger! Seriously Syfy? Are you guys such jerks and think so little of your audience that you could not at least bring this to a close without leaving us all hanging on what might happen next?

And Syfy, really, wrestling, Ghost Hunters, Truth or Fiction? I think someone needs to do a Truth or Fiction on your channel, because it truly sucks now. Scifi channel was the reason I got cable in the first place. The Syfy channel will be the reason I drop it and write letters of boycott to all Syfy’s sponsors.

I truly hope someone picks up the show, but I suspect that will not happen. Maybe if we are lucky, they will do a really crappy movie like Syfy loves to do (could they have worse Scifi movies on that channel?)

I do thank you Syfy, I can now save $75/month by dropping cable, watching TV on Hulu, and borrowing the DVDs. Another dime of mine you will not see. I vote with my wallet. You loose.

May 13, 2011 at 1:50 pm
(1105) Rob says:

I loved SGU. And for the record SyFy has made horrible decisions ever since they changed their name and that old hag took things over. Airring a million episodes of Ghost Hunters and WWE wrestling, on a “sci-fi” network, yet cancelling every hard sci-fi show that gets made. Theyre leaving us with corny shows with the typical one-liner garbage we see on network night to night.

As a side note: I doubt they would have the balls to cancel SGU if it had more Richard Dean Anderson in it.

May 13, 2011 at 4:41 pm
(1106) Justsomeone says:

I liked all 3 SG series. And all for different reasons. Although, SG1 climaxed, and then droned on for a couple of seasons, and stargate atlantis “jumped the shark” more times than I can count. (Ie. it had no direction what-so-ever)

SGU though had a plan from the get go. And, it is one reason why I feared for it’s existence so much. Shows with a plan never survive in our mindless entertain me now, I need sugared entertainment vs real entertainment. There are excdptions to this rule… But, most people like the weekly drama, with no ongoing plot groth.

If I had to list the quality of the shows by level, SGU is a clear 2 to SG1, but better than SG Atlantis will ever hope to be.

On the other hand, SyFi kept a variety of shows that constently send me in search of better programming. I mean… who in their right mind would keep “Warehouse 13″, or pick up “Alphas”? Lame. And, I mean ultra lame. This is entertainment for lobotimized vegtables. I keep leaving SyFi. And, for good reason, they make bad choices.

Anyway… DrWho is best watched on BBC… And, that is the last quality program SyFi shows anyway… So, yet again, I leave them for a few years till their heads come out of their butts again.

May 13, 2011 at 8:38 pm
(1107) neil Gallie says:

Finding a half reasonable sifi is like finding a needle in a planet sized haystack, Stargate has finally come to maturity with the Universe series, with excellent acting and very realistic scenarios, even quite accurate science at times, how can after all this time can they think of knocking the series on the head. I hope for the sake of all the desperate sifi watchers that have finally found what I can only describe as one of the few well thought out series that somehow we can “like Destiny” fulfill the mission.

Please let this series survive ~ Neil, Queensland, Australia!

Very, VERY sad that Stargate ends here. I’ve been a big fan of all of the SG series, including SGU. This is by far the best show on the SyFy channel. Great acting, very creative and compelling writing. If another channel picks it up, I’ll be THEIR loyal viewer like I’ve been with the Syfy channel since Syfy picked up SG-1.

(1109) Marty says:

This was by far the best of the S.G franchises, it has a huge following in Australlia and it gets axed by some a studio that has absollutley no idea how good program it is, maybe they could have thought of not advertising it as part of a failing franchise and market it as a stand alone series, absolute loss to the Scifi community in the land of OZ, maybe more mail such as this could bring it back? Its happened before………..

(1110) Mesron says:

What is it when we lose good scifi programming and gain wrestling, reality shows, and of course ghost hunters. Americans have not only gotten fat in their guts, but also in their brains. Television that requires thought is above the mainstream. I really hate to see what shows Scifi comes up with next. I expect anytime now we will start seeing remakes of Space 1999 or Babylon 5. Then there is also Scifi channels lame movies. I would love to see the demographic data for the recent Thor movie.

May 13, 2011 at 11:22 pm
(1111) Brendan says:

I guess the good old days of Scifi are gone. Things have just really gone down hill since they changed there name to Syfy.

Iv been a big fan of all the star gate series and have watched every episode atleast twice.

SGU reminded me a star treck voyger, I really like shows the build over time instead of the more moden ones that have each episode seprate from the rest just so lesser minded followers can keep up with them.

Its quite stupid there raitings system since not every one can watch it that way and that the internet has now become the bigest media provider. I would guess that most of its fans would be getting it over the internet. I would of been happy to buy each episode online for $5 in a system that took that as raitings. Hell I would of payed for a few episodes twice since they are worth it.

My weeks are ending up with less and less to watch now.
Sanctuary, DR Who and Fringe if its not cancled are all I have.

Can you believe this crap. Some of the movies that they show on Scifi would not make it on Mystery Theater 3000. They drop SGU because of some kind of point system. Geesh
I turned off the cable several years ago. I am now going back to the library. I hope that I can find some of the old writers there.
Maybe, I will write my own books for a while.

SYFY needs to rename itself once again. They are losing their sci-fi ways and going for WWE Smackdown and horrible SYFY movies. What about taking the budget from the SYFY movies that appear on saturday and create better more entertaining sci-fi shows. I would rather watch reruns from the greats then turn the channel to SYFY and watch some of the crap they be coming out with. Babylon 5, Farscape, Firefly, SG-1 and so many other great sci-fi shows. They better make a continuation to the series cause I’m pretty upset about this. I have been an avid follower of Stargate since it introductionand I have been captivated for years. Now SYFY is killing the nerd inside of me… DAMN YOU

screw SyFy , i won’t watch it anymore , i understood the ending of SG1 because the story was at it’s end , the screwed up SG1 and lost alot of fans when they decided to swap the cast out…

then Atlantis came with a half story that wasn’t finished and got the axe , now SGU the same way , so i say screw syfy , i won’t watch anything from that channel anymore.

Disappointed the SGU is cancelled. Saw the last episode. It was ok considering the writers had to wrap things up in a short amount of time. I agree with most … the beginning episodes were too dark and slow moving. I really enjoyed the shows evolution. Perhaps SyFy will create a straight to DVD franchise for SGU. I like the two DVDs for SG-1. Accountants are you listening! I need a better series ending.

May 14, 2011 at 11:56 am
(1119) Joseph Cameron says:

The writers killed this show before it even began. Other scriptwriters did a far better job but it’s too late. Now we can look forward to brain-dead morons in leotards behaving like animals and like it, or just switch off.

I know which I will do.

May 14, 2011 at 1:27 pm
(1120) Kakts says:

I addmit there where a few episodes that where sub par, but in general SGU was by far the best of SG Series for me. I loved that it was darker then usual and I found the characters much more interesting, their personalities seemed deeper and more realistic then in the previous series.

All I can say is that I really hope that somebody picks it up, or by some miracle chance SyFy changes its mind.

May 14, 2011 at 3:13 pm
(1121) Flame_Unquenchable says:

I was really growing to like SGU, mainly because I had a similar idea a few years ago about this sort of show.

Apparently in our fast paced ADD world fans can’t keep their attention on something for even one season to allow the characters to develop and the baseline for a good story to be laid down before they sign about it not being RDA and the old crew and give up on it.

I for one will miss SGU, maybe they can do a direct to DVD movie…

May 14, 2011 at 4:08 pm
(1122) Why?? says:

I was disappointed and suprised to here this was the final season of SGU.
This was the best Stargate series. Good story line and character development.
I can’t believe they will continue showing reruns of the other SG’s and not this one.

Noes! The best of them all. Just saw Season.2 > Episode.20 (last episode). I can only ask, why? I would love to know Destinys mission? Why end it like that when they only was talking about “Destinys mission/The oldest/the beginning of everything”. So we will NEVER know what happend after 3 year of sleep? Like, what happend when they woke up? Did they find Destinys mission? etc

I’m just saying: Rest in Peace – Stargate Universe (SGU) !

I can’t either understand what they didn’t like whith SGU. There was a really good story line, great actors and the actual story was well thought out and very exciting !

Well some folks are just stupid i think, the cancellations on syfy is huge, and just because of this stupid mistake they did, so the poeple are keeping there promise to never watch Syfy again, warehouse 13 ? omg c’mon wth..

lets hope they sell the rights for this show, and that they take off where the left…

My heart is broken, i cant really believe this is happened,

This is started verry slow but i really start to liked it , and now they cancel it….. like some poeple alrdy said it’s all about money and not about our fans, i watched all SG’s and clearly this one was the best of them all, didnt liked the drama , but they action and acting was great

Peace Out ….

(1127) Bob M says:

How ridiculous it is to cancel the best of the shows syfy had. The best of the stargate series by far. They didn’t even have to rely on some lame cute alien to save their butts week after week. Maybe the BBC will pull their heads out of the sand and pick up this great story before all the fine actors are scooped up by somebody with a little perspective on what the future could be.

(1128) Spencer Streeter says:

I am so sad they cancelled SGU. I am a huge fan of SG-1, SG-Atlantis and now SG-Universe. I was a little shell schocked in the change of tone, but I like the whole SG concept that has kind of replaced my old Star Trek watching…I’m amazed SYFY didn’t recognize the SG franchise as a viable Star Trek upgrade/replacement. When you think about other sci-fi shows that exist, battlestar galactica isn’t even in the same league as Stargate episode wise. I feel as though the franchise themselves undersold their own importance. I hope there is someway they can bring the fans the experience of the story they were trying to launch in a video game or books at least. I am sad for the loss of this series, I have nothing I want to watch now. SYFY cancelled the other show I enjoyed…Caprica, but I have lost a 10 year fix when they cancelled Stargate, I’m really lost. Who watches Warehouse 13, Eureka, and Haven, Being Human, Ghost Hunters, or other crap shows found on SYFY? Not me. Guess I’ll be watching my DVDs of SG from the beginning. Oops, guess SYFY won’t be getting any royalties off DVD’s they don’t make. Silly show cancellers, do they even watch the shows they cancel….make sure a fan is the one who makes the decision to ax a show, not a stupid reality TV junkie.

May 15, 2011 at 3:56 am
(1129) Chris says:

Wow The last episode will eat away at me for the rest of my life. SGU was the best Stargate to date! I have always looked up to Syfy, how can they betray me like this? This show is 1 of 2 of the best series on the TV network and Syfy just dumped all over it. If I win Mega Bucks I’m funding SGU and I think anyone who truly cares about their life having any meaning at all would do the same.

May 15, 2011 at 4:10 am
(1130) hmmm says:

While it would be silly for SyFy and NBC not to care about money (it’s business baby). I think there is a substantial loss in the long term value of this show. As season one was slow to gain a fan-base, if you look at the average episode ratings, they’ve significantly increased and the story/fan-base/ratings have gained traction.

From another network’s perspective, SyFy did all the hard work/initial investment throwing the product out there. Now it’s their loss for the taking for an already developed story and cast.

(1131) David says:

Ok im not trying to diss anyone i have bought every stargate that they have made, and when sgu first started i will agree that it started off slow. but what i dont understand is why that they just cant just mak the seasons and put it on for sell in stores or put on like zune eposode after it has been made they could have done this with not only sgu but they could have done this with all stargate series. but that is one persons opion

May 15, 2011 at 6:15 am
(1132) Alex says:

I have never watched anything “Stargate” before and I thought the concept was utterly boring. I had only seen tiny bits of SG1 on TV, where it seemed to be a typical action/comedy show with a weekly problem for the main characters to solve. Same old recipe.

I haven’t even watched any real sci-fi shows before, but I must say that I found myself absolutely and sincerely immersed into Stargate Universe. I’m not American, but I saw S01E11 on syfy when i was on vacation in the US. I didn’t think too much about it at the time, as the other shows on this channel struck me as real garbage so I was somehow expecting low budget amateur stuff. But long story short; I couldn’t get it out of my head. I watched all the episodes (torrent obviously, not on tv in my country) with MUCH excitement. By now this has even gotten me introduced to the Atlantis series.

I absolutely love SGU, and I was extremely disappointed to hear that it has been canceled.

Ugh, I can’t believe they did this! It was the best show on tv! Wharehouse 13 made it? That show sucks in comparison. I wasn’t actually a big fan of the previous Stargate series, although I’d watch SG1 occasionally, but this one will be missed. Let’s home someone else picks it up.

(1135) MartyLR says:

SciFi shows haven’t done well lately – The Event sucks – terrible plot lines – will be cancelled if not already, V just got the axe, and now SGU is gone. I wasn’t the biggest fan of SGU but it did hold my interest and had a lot of potential. Thank goodness Fringe got renewed – at least one good show remains!

May 15, 2011 at 4:55 pm
(1136) Miles says:

I am so disappointed! I enjoyed this StarGate more than any other. It really provided a gritty drama, with some cool techo-problems showing up at regular intervals. I guess the last episode was foreshadow of what was coming. Pity.

Here’s hoping that they change their minds…

This is really a shame. Stargate Universe was the best of the Stargate series. The stories and characters rivaled those of Battlestar Galactica, the best sci fi series ever. The rest of the stuff on SyFy is primarily fluff, with the exception of maybe Being Human, and that is a rip off of the better BBC production. Just more progression to the mean by TV execs.

May 16, 2011 at 12:30 am
(1141) Jonathan says:

Wow. I just found out about this after watching Season 2. I stayed and watched this show because I knew, just like the other 2 franchise, it would get a lot better. The problem I saw is that they spent WAY too long showing the characters in the first season. They spent WAY too long trying to give a connection between the characters and the viewers.

By the time they actually started to get the show rolling with action, puzzles, mysteries, and problems, it was already too late.

@SGU Team: Your tried to show your viewers love for the character in a way that was too boring and slow. Please quit your job.

FYI: Best 2 characters are Eli Walace (David Blue) and Ronald Greer (Jamil Walker Smite).

May 16, 2011 at 1:28 am
(1142) Owen says:

Has anyone else noted that BBC America now has more real Sci-fi than this POS channel?

They have two full night of shows, many repeats of old Scifi stuff (BSG, Primeval) and new shows like Doctor Who (which is quite good IMO) and they have picked up Being Human.

I just find it amusing that Syfy has worse Scifi than a BBC channel. How embarrassing for Syfy.

Here is hoping that Syfy goes the way of UPN, and chokes on their reality series and Wrestling, just like UPN did. Then someone else can come in and take their place,.

Syfy, you have been removed from my favorites and your list has been locked out. I am boycotting a long list of your advertisers with letters explaining why. May not do any good, but it makes me feel better. I encourage others to boycott their advertisers and write letters as well. If enough write, Syfy might just get the message in their collective wallets.

Hey, here is a free idea for you Syfy: Change you name so SuX. At least it will be truth in naming.

(1143) charles chancery says:

This is an embarrassment to Sci Fi, you are a disgrace to science fiction. At least the “sorry old B rated shows” had endings. This show in particular is heartwarming, brings the characters to life. Brings the Science Fiction to reality making you feel as if it could be reality. That is what Science Fiction was made for, to bring it all to life an inspire hope for the future. For example; Superman, Spiderman, The Hulk, etc. All inspiring hope, getting the young to look at things that in ways we couldn’t in which finding new answers. Rethink your decision you embarrassment to science fiction.

They cancel the only show that has potential? It had a great storyline, some amazing acting, wonderful sets and even great caracter development (albeit a bit slow).
I’ve always hated the other stuff they sold on SyFy (Warehouse 13 ugh…), but SGU has been really really great, and probably would have had enough potential to make quite a bunch of seasons before growing cheesy (and I’m sure even after that I would’ve watched).

What happened to the SciFi on SyFy? Whatever they’re showing now is crappy low budget stuff, reality soaps and wrestling, really??

Balls to you SyFy for this ugly move, to end the Stargate franchise in such a pathetic way:( Indeed, I really hope Showtime picks it up.

Anyway a big ‘thank you’ to Robert C. Cooper and Brad Wright for their incredible writing, it’s a shame the plug got pulled.

Someone else said “in trying to be “grown-up” or “serious” like Galactica they lost the humor and adventure that made the first two stargate series a must see.” I completely agree that’s why many fans were turned off by the new Stargate series.

Is it a bad thing to have a darker, grittier sort of show? Not at all, it worked out great for the new BSG, after all. But that was never what SG was. The first two series had a charm in the way they didn’t take themselves too seriously, and the camraderie of the SG team was truly special. I really couldn’t develop any feelings for the fractituous, unhappy castaways on Destiny, yes the characters have been realistic with unpleasant issues to deal with but that’s not what I’m looking for when I watch SG.

This show could have done its own thing without stargates or the using SG franchsing at all. But at the end of the day, the writers tried to do the same thing the BSG remake team did: reimagine a lovable, quirky show as something much much darker. The new BSG had the drama of the extinction of the human race to make it work; the only thing these castaways were fighting for was themselves and in the end of the day, it just didn’t resonate.

(1149) Upset viewer says:

This is more than a disappointment, after watching the other Stargate series and films I was looking forward to a new and improved likeness. I found that in Stargate Universe. Now, it’s so long, not good riddance. SYFY you need to check yourself before you wreck yourself.

May 16, 2011 at 5:22 pm
(1150) Alex says:

@ Andy

That’s exactly why the ratings were so low, SGU was presented as regular Stargate. The happy-go-lucky not-so-deep action/comedy same old format. Seeing as SGU was quite different, much darker and more intellectual, I believe Syfy is partly to blame here. You guys were expecting SG1 recycled, just like Atlantis was but with a blue stargate. But they decided to give you something new, so you didn’t get what you were expecting and of course that’s disappointing.

As for myself, I had never watched anything “Stargate” at all. Accidentally, though, I got into SGU and I must say that I found it absolutely brilliant. Loved it. Never before have I found myself so immersed into a television series. Extremely disappointed to hear that it’s been canceled, even many of the old stargate fanboys admitted that it was getting really good. And I was very sad to see some SG1 and Atlantis fans cheer when Universe was cancelled, it’s as if they don’t realize that this isn’t just the end of SGU, but possibly all of Stargate. I recall Star Trek fans hating Voyager, but still bearing along their support because it was better than no Star Trek at all, which then afterwards resulted in more series and movies.

But really, SGU was getting seriously epic right when it was cancelled.

(1151) PCL says:

This show was great! We don’t get Syfy so we had to watch it on DVD and Netflix but my husband and I loved it! We have seen all 10 seasons of SG1 twice and SG Atlantis much more than that! It took us a little bit to get into SGU because it was different and the story line was a bit more complicated, but once we got in we were hooked!! We are so very disappointed that Syfy decided to cancel the show. I really do hope it gets picked up again or that Atlantis get a 6th season. If this is truly the end of all the Stargates that would just be horrible!!

This is my second comment on this page. Most people feel the same way I do..they are just shocked that sgu is cancelled. But for those of you who think sgu was just ok, think about this.

Stargate universe was the scifi show I always wanted to watch but never knew it until it first aired. please tell me that someone can pick this show up and give us at least one more season

Dear SYFY,
After having reviewed what you kept (Warehouse 13 and Sanctuary) over what you canceled(SGU) I got to say every one in your corporate leadership should be sent in to space and flushed out an airlock. Hell you could have cancelled a few of those craptastic movies you make and kept SGU at least one more season. At the rate you are going there will be absolutely NO reason for anyone to watch your network.

May you all be defenestrated and fall on long sharp spikes.

Most annoyed with the idiots in charge of your network,

Evil Overlord

(1156) Matthew Schultz says:

I think that this show was definitely one of the best shows I have watched on Syfy since Battlestar Galactica. SGU in my opinion had good actors and a great plot. Some people said that the last episode of season 2 was terrible but i think it was a fascinating to end a season for a show. It would have been interesting if the show would have continued and say started off with the first episode being three years later and the first person waking back up on the ship. maybe thats what syfy should do, just wait a year and then bring the show back and start it off that way. I would hate to see this show end after getting me so hooked. To be really honest i think one of the reasons this show lost its credibility is only because of the network that was airing it. I dont knot about you but most people dont want to watch syfy shows anymore cause they are just too cheesy. Hello….syfy welcome to the 21 century we have technology now so will you please use it and make better shows. if you would do that then more people would watch your channel and you would have better ratings. I think that if SGU were to air on like ABC then the ratings would probably be huge. I mean if people could like LOST then they will love SGU. Anyway i doubt this comment will even get seen but if it does i hope what i had to say gets considered a little bit and maybe some changes will be made.

Hopefully, another station will pick up where this left off. And don’t forget to mention that the writers of SGU ended the series with the possibility that it could continue if allowed.
E.g. 3 years floating in space toward a new and expansive galaxy never before seen by humanity, aboard the greatest space exploration ever endeavored. All the possibilities!

(1177) Christoban says:

To understand why SGU never picked up enough viewers to survive you must first understand there are basically two types of sci-fi lovers:

1) Morons who don’t care about character development, quality acting, or good writing and only want constant, repetitive, meaningless, mindless action and stupid characters who cleanly fall into ‘good’ and ‘evil’ factions. These are the people who flocked to SG1 and Atlantis…and Star Wars.

2) Reasonably intelligent sci-fi fans who demand those things. These are the people who liked the original Stargate movie and the often character driven stories of SGU…and Star Trek.

Unfortunately, what I believe happened is that all the idiots in #1 couldn’t adapt to SGU, and the people in #2 who learned that any ‘Stargate’ series (no matter the suffix) was synonymous with ‘hackneyed trash’ simply wouldn’t give it a chance.

Completely p*ssed off SGU has been candled.

If the SyFy channel let the series develop or at least gave SGU another season to bring the story to some sort of reasonable conclusion surely they would have made money back in DVD sales.

The one thing I’m glad about is they left SGU wide open for a come back series or movie. If someone was smart they’d pick up the rights for this fantastic show ASAP and make the money SyFy is missing out on. Heck, I’d even pay for a “Premium Movie” channel just to see it. And don’t look now but Fringe was almost cancelled, its fans (I think) forced it to come back and not go in the dumpster. Well, at least I’ll have one show to look forward too. One last thing, who were the geniuses that thought Wrestling was Si-Fi? Oh, right…it is fake, maybe that’s what they think Si-Fi is about.

Let’s all hope that in a couple of years it will be brought back to life!

Just watched the last ep and at least it leaves it open for a movie or something.

Fare thee well SyF(r)y, I shall now be able to watch more BBC scifi shows, Dr Who, Being Human, etc… Yes, Being Human is on syfy, by why waste my time there when I can watch it on BBC. Wonder if I can save money switching to a different Satellite package since I have no use for syfy anymore.

If something that can be more intellectually stimulating is really going to be thrown out of a spot by WWE which is fiction we all know.. and unless aliens are taking over the hosts body I really dont see how its science fiction.. then honestly I will have no further use to watch ANY of Syfy’s broadcasts which sucks cause there are alot of shows I do truly enjoy from them. But honestly why Wrestling? Its not science fiction is just bad scripts and oiled up half naked people pulverizing each other and talking smack.. is that really the only value we have as a country? where beating each other up is more entertaining then something unique and Original. then wow we might as well devolve back into the stone ages! for those who practice wrestling at home, that basically means go back to living in caves and clubbing each other in the heads!

(1188) Morbane says:

My guess is if you looked at illegal download ratings, you’ll find the ratings it didn’t get on TV. This shows demo download, watch in their own time, back-to-back, with no adverts. And once they are done watching it on download, they’ll buy the DVDs and the boxsets will sell well. Because they like it.

Sadly, TV Execs haven’t worked out how to fit all that into their current business model yet. So they make science fiction, that’s more fantasy and teen drama than intelligent, because that appeals to the younger demo or less tech savvy who don’t download.

This show has an audience, they just aren’t represented in standard TV ratings.

This was a great series, the best of the cheesy Stargate franchise by far. It was a departure from the B-Grade sets, TV lighting and corny throw away dialogue. A little too close to it’s obvious influence, Battlestar for a while, but it really found it’s feet once the writing team, cast and crew found their own voice and started telling their own stories.

Man what the real problem is was downloading the show and not watching it and them moving the show around wack ass wrestling a true loss hope showtime picks it up brings it to a reality. That being locked up in space should be gritty and raw like sg1 when it started! !

No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is my favorite show, not just as part of the epic stargate series, but as one of the best acted, filmed, and produced shows I have ever seen. Part of me has died. What are you thinking SciFi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(1192) Mark says:

This is a great series! I have watched them all! I guess I will not be tuning in to the sci fy channel anymore. They won’t lose any sleep over that though because I am only just one viewer. I guess that it was good while it lasted.

June 2, 2011 at 3:28 pm
(1193) FireShadow says:

Apparently we live in a world of adrenaline junkies – must have action! Nothing of depth allowed!

I have read reviews where the reviewer claimed that the characters were unbelievable and unlike real life…strange, because I was impressed with how very real to life the characters were! I found myself being able to predict what a particular character would do based NOT on the needs of the plot but because of the character’s nature. I was impressed with how well the writers captured human nature. (note: I have a degree in psychology and have continued to study human nature for decades – yes, I am old).

This series was certainly not the swashbuckling style of the other SG series, but consider this: SGU was not based on a team trained for off world travel, but a group of people who were never meant to go on this trip (politicians, bureaucrats, etc).

Yes, the characters complained and whined, but what do you expect from people who have always had the comforts of home and have no training for hardship. I can say from experience that even with some training (I was in the U.S. Army for 6 years), people tend to complain when things do not go their way…

I thought that SGU was an interesting snapshot of human nature when presented with extreme hardship.

Holy #$%^ they are canceling! god#$@ this is the best show hands down! Everything is blended, the acting is incredible, and these story lines about the ongoing struggle just keeps you on your seat and nail biting all through the episode! RIP SGU :(

(1195) Mack says:

This news is crippling. I just watched episode 19 of season two of SGU. They took me, an avid SG-1 and Atlantis fan and pulled me into the best SG plot yet only to dash me carelessly against the rocks of the Almighty Dollar. Now I’m returning the favor. Hope you’re reading some of these comments SYFY. I’m going back to my sci-fi novels. To hell with the SYFY channel. RIP SGU… RIP Destiny…
Prediction: Soon……SYFY shopping channel.

Sure…cancel a show where the chubby guy is the star (lets face it the chubby kid was the real star). This sounds like discrimination toward fat people. Isn’t there a law about that? The show had its flaws but it was a whole lot better than anything called “American Idol”, Dancing with the Stars”, “Survivor”, etc. “What fools we mortals be”.

June 3, 2011 at 10:03 pm
(1197) night blade says:

Grrrr, still pissed at this, the last thing on my mind after seeing the 2nd season finale was this great show being cancelled. I just hope someone picks this show up, I’m not a SG fan, other than the original movie, I never watched any of the series on TV, however SGU really got my attention, so well done.

Such a shame SyFy.

June 3, 2011 at 11:14 pm
(1198) Cam says:

This is just another reason why I have stopped watching my own countries TV Shows. I have moved on to other countries that actually have endings on their shows. SGU is also the only American show I have watched in 9 months.
This show was slow at first and a little boring at times but it picked up at the end of the first season. I admit it could of had some more depth in some characters but the overall was an amazing and creative add on to the Stargate series.

It is truly sad when you give up on your own countries TV shows.

June 4, 2011 at 1:45 am
(1199) Old Eric says:

How utterly disappointing. SGU was one of the few shows I really looked forward to watching. The first couple episodes were a little flat, but that was to be expected with a new show, so I hung in there, and sure enough the show got better. Much, much better. The acting was excellent, and the characters were developing into people I cared about. The special effects were fantastic too, but honestly, that’s not why I watched. It was the actors, and their characters. Damn it! This stinks. You guys are idiots. FU SyFy! Now you leave us with wrestling and reality TV?! Apparently you learned nothing from Firefly.

So. I won’t bother watching ANYTHING you guys produce until it’s at least 5 seasons into its lifespan. Why bother, if you’re going to be so frickin’ short-sighted. Aw, to hell with it. I’ve been with you since the beginning, but seriously, I’m done with you. You broke my heart, SyFy. You broke my heart.

June 4, 2011 at 6:03 am
(1200) Chris says:

Its a shame this show is getting canceled. Amazing acting and a story line that kept getting better and deeper.
The last episode is UNREAL. One of the best finales I have ever seen. SO MUCH POTENTIAL.
Should get Space to pick it up, or maybe showcase. Crosses fingers.

SyFy doesnt even reach everybody who might watch the show. VERY few Canadians have the SyFy channel. Kinda hard to prove ratings if you dont get the show out there. I say boycott the next SyFy convention, or anything held or operated by the SyFy channel.

They could have at least come up with a decent ending. I just watched the last episode and it had ZERO conclusion to it. Now I feel like I completely wasted my time watching the all the episodes. It’s sad because they finally started having some decent battle scenes towards the end.

My husband, and I are so disappointed with the cancellation of SGU. We do not know why people were not watching this show. We can have a hundred “real housewives” of the who gives a crap, but quality shows get two seasons. I hope our marriage survives this.

(1205) Pointerx says:

Stargate Universe In my opinion was the best show behind Battlestar Galactica to ever be aired on scifi. It was absolutley Magnificent. Carprica was in the same boat. The Only thing that makes SGU different from SG1 & SGA was that it was a soap opera. There was a story line. A greater path, message if you will. No stargate fan that hadnt seen at least the first half of season one of SGU could just pick up season 2 and start watching. THAT WAS ITS DOWNFALL. other than that, my favorite show ever. SG1 Became too much like Sliders, or Quantum leap, Or Earth2, or Star trek. sure SG1 could go for 10 years because there was a different planet and a different dilemma every episode, but it all begins to feel like crap after you watch enough. The Only real story lines SG1 produced were in its Season premiers & Season Finales plus the occasional movie here and there. BTW the Movie Stargate WAS GREAT, they just dropped and created so much lore about the whole world of stargate that it got out there, THATS WHY SGU tied it up NICELY. CHEERS SGU. TO THE BEST WRITING & CASTING A STARGATE SHOW EVER HAD

SyFy, I will come back when SGU does… Until then you’ve lost another viewer.

Best show on tv in any genre.

P.S. It costs more to get a new customer (viewer) than it does to keep one you’ve already got. Now you have to work twice as hard and spend twice as much just to break even… Count those beans!

There are SF fans all over the world,and they are verry dissepointed.
Please get SGU online,sell the series,that is come.
There are over a million fans off SGU.
Making of a serie costing maybe less than a million.
When all the fans pays the episode one at the time,than you can make the serie to a good end,after 5 full series of 20 episodes.
The solution is verry simpel.
Think about it.

i am a very loyal fan of the stargate franchise,
and though it is sad to see the show canceled,
i think it might actually enhance the prestige of the
storyline if it came back on in a few years.
last episode: the crew is in stasis for 3 years,
it could work if they bring it back

i only watched the scfy channel to watch stargate,
until it comes back i have now interest in watching
the crap they call entertainment

(1211) Big- Red-Alpha-543 says:

When I watched the first episode of stargaze Atlantis I was never the same stargate was the nest thing to ever happen to me. Since then I have watched every single episode and stargate movie to date and when I heard that some ASS WIPE is canceling what Is quickly become my favorite season yet I was ready to get a shovel and beat the living crap out of them. So if you have any power in the stargate community whether your a producer or the cleaner I say stand a protest for all the people who can’t. So for GOD SAKE BRING IT BACK. Then I’ll have something worth living for!

P.S. If your a millionaire and u happen to read this please send money to the stargate people to go back to business because the money is the only thing they seem to care about. If u do that I can assure you, you will be the most loved person in the sic fi community!!!!!!!!

It seems that every good sifi show on television gets cancelled. Stargate Universe was a great show, and I can’t help but wonder how they actually do the ratings. I feel that Neilsen and other raters don’t pick people with scifi leanings, leaving the support for sifi shows out of the picture. Every time I see a scifi show cancelled, all my friends are as angry as I am, making me wonder exactly how the ratings are obtained. I watch on satellite, nearly always dvr’ng the shows, and wonder how that would show up on the ratings.

(1215) niteowlgirl says:

Syfy you really really really suck! My husband and I watched this show and several others that were very good, Farscape for example, and you all axed those. We have vowed to never watch Syfy channel again. To add wrestling and some of the other pure rubbish to your station is idiocy. Why don’t you all stick to good Sci-fi and spell it correctly..

I hope that Showtime does take it back and Syfy goes bankrupt. I mean that in the most respectful manner possible.. NOT!

I too wonder where they get these ratings. Do they count Netflix at all? I have watched all 40 episodes twice, I know I am only one person, but that has to count for something. I think they pull the ratings out their arse.

June 6, 2011 at 3:59 pm

(1217) Jeff says:

This is BullS***. I did not watch the show on TV, but I watched every series on Netflix. SG-1 had an incredible run, Stargate: Atlantis should of had a sixth season, and SGU should not be cancelled after only 2 seasons. SGU was totally different from the other series’ in the way the story was being told, but it still made for good TV. SGU will be sorely missed. One can only hope that another TV station will pick it up.

Dear Mark and all Stargate Universe fans,
a show that goes on discovering ourselves in outer space does
not seem to please everyone. I mean that our planet earth is out there transporting us somewhere making a gift of itself in the meanwhile. I do not see much difference in the human condition. I think the show has incredible potential and is very well made but do we really want to see ourselves in the future with all the problems we have created ourselves?
I think we will have the chance to see our STARGATE UNIVERSE again rediscovered by a production that sees a bit further than its nose and evolves with our multiple universes….

I don’t have cable it’s too expensive, but I did watch SGU Seasons 1 & 2 on “NetFlix” and I thought it was great. Yes it was a bit mushy with the families back on earth. The drama on Destiny was also a bit much at times too but it brought the story line all together. The action could be turned up some, but all in all my family and I really liked it and are looking forward to finding out what happens after the crew comes out of the stasis pods. I really would like to see more. If SyFy doesn’t want to gamble on this why not go for the written book form, just an idea. After all Robert Jordan kept his fans waiting for the next Wheel of Time book 14 times, mater of fact the last book isn’t due till fall 2011.

June 9, 2011 at 3:32 pm
(1229) SG kid says:

Seriously! how could StarGate be cancelled! I’m only 12 and I like it! StarGate is hilarious, action packed and creative. No other shows have brought people back alive as much as Daniel has been. I know of 3 times he has died. Once when he ascended the first time and Anubis beat him. The other time Anubis was defeated and he came back. And when Daniel was shot by Teal’c in the time mix up.

June 9, 2011 at 7:56 pm
(1230) patter says:

I watched all the episodes, and would have watched it to the end, but I didn’t really enjoy it.

My biggest problem with the show was that there wasn’t a coherent story line. Too many events were left unresolved and tbh I didn’t care how it would eventually be resolved. Too many rabbit-out-of-a-hat tricks, too much fluff, and too little substance.

June 9, 2011 at 8:59 pm

Does anyone know if the screenplay or books or anything will be released to finalize the storyline?

(1233) hadeze says:

Stargate, then Stargate-Atlantis, neither of them came close to Battlestar Galactica … its rival was: SGU …
question: why is it that bad sci-fi goes on and on (Stargate, SGA) and good syfy (BSG & SGU) is cancelled so early? The answer: money.

If only there were a way – there will be someday, soon – for a syfy audience to pay for syfy tv they like, … then, and only then, will this brainlessness on the part of tv (so-called) executives cease …

then, when we can pay to watch SGU … there will be no premature cancellation.

I suggest a serious or total cut of salary of all those syfy “execs” who (sans brain use ) cut SGU … brainless types who can’t do 10 pushups …

SGU and Caprica were smart scifi dramas. What we really need is more fake wrestling and perhaps another housewives series they can air on Syfy. Why be great when you can strive for undereducated common and appeal to a broader audience?

Why can’t you believe there are people who want to spend the time and money watching these shows? What will it take to get you to make these shows happen?

Syfy, do you realize that you are making a case for watching Netflix instead of cable? I wonder which one you make more money on.

You folks sure aren’t making it easy for your viewers. What the hell is it going to take to get you to stick with a series for more than a year or two? This is ridiculous. How about you replace some of your marketing geniuses with some viewers who know what we’re doing? Please email me, my address is in the box. I could do a better job than you.

ok. the first season was pretty crap. but i think the second season really started to get people hooked. and every episode was getting better and better. but finishing a show where they all go to sleep and fly off in thier space ship (in the wrong direction), is a pretty poor ending. at the very least they should bring it back just to finish the story.

(1245) DamienCross says:

Damn it I loved SGU, far more so than SG1 or SGA. The reasons are simple, it made it more realistic ( yeah i know scifi as realistic sounds stupid) where not everything was handed to them in a shiny sparkly ship, spanking the bad guys and walking away after a few chuckles back in time for dinner. In SGU they would face the hard decisions like leaving people behind or even screw over others to save themselves. wondering how the hell they were even going to BREATHE and EAT was even a big issue, great! this sort of thing should be shown because its a REAL concern people would face and to me thats what made it so damned compelling. My favourite character was Rush because unlike McKay he wasnt shown as a brilliant silly lil scientist but a bloody jerk who only really thought of himself and his concerns and people are like that, not everyone is all out for the self sacrificing greater good. This was the best damn SciFi drama I have seen in a damn long time, dont throw it away just because it doesnt fit into the same stupid campy catergory that many who just like seeing pretty sparkly lights of lasers and tralala storylines prefer.

SGU was a gem. I recommended it to everyone i know. after watching the final episode i told everyone i know how big of a disappointment it now is. imagine if a show like LOST was cancelled halfway through, without the end of the story it is just stupid. i felt like i was reading an incredibly good book that was stolen from me and there are no other copies in existence.
DO BETTER SyFy. oh and change the name back to Sci-fi. otherwise your just broadcasting your stupidity.

Here is and email address you might like. Maybe if we told the right people how we feel something could happened 
And feel free to copy and paste what I email to them earlier

 You are someone you know has recently cancelled the tv show stargate universe
 I would like you to explain your reason for this. I know that because I enjoy a show doesn’t nesssarly mean that others will. But from reading just a few comment from the blog I found informing me of the cancelled show I beleve you have made a mistake. I don’t expect a reply or for you to reinstate the show to the air. But I little something would be nice. After all I did invest 2 years in to this great show only for you to take it away from me. 
  Thank you for you time

I found the comments on this really interesting, but I notice that even as a huge Stargate fan that thought SGU was awesome, I notice that a lot of you spoke bad about reality shows and Eureka which are shows that I also really enjoy. Caprica on the other hand I’m starting to get bored of before the 2nd season. Too much religious crap for me.

How are reality shows not great? I’m talking about Survivor mostly not that Big Brother crap. They are really insightful social experiments which I thought the more intelligent people that would like SGU and it’s great social themes would enjoy. The acting was so great that it seemed as genuine to me as a reality show.

Anyway I am really sad that SGU was cancelled and have little faith that the Stargate franchise can survive this. Let’s hope that in continuity with the way the series ended it could come back in 3 years.

(1249) Shay says:

I can’t believe they cancelled SGU! I was so pissed when I heard the news. I loved SG1, and SG Atlantis lost the flavor for the show when they were on their last season, to the point that I didn’t want to watch SGU when it came out. However, the moment I did i fell immediately in love.

I seriously hope another network picks them up, because the show rocks, and it would kill me to see that the show will never air ever again.

Syfy…bad form. >.<

Why is it when there is something worth watching someone comes along and “bang” it’s no more…..this isn’t right

June 16, 2011 at 7:54 pm
(1251) Thinker says:

I stopped watching the SG1 series because I got tired of the same stories playing out week after week. I was also frustrated with the lack of character development and the truly fantastical (i.e. silly) exploits of Daniel Jackson through time and space as the series progressed. SGA never appealed to me at all – completely disjointed and random as far as I’m concerned. I confess I later finished the SG! series on Netflix and it was much easier to watch in three or four hour chunks but still repetitive. I like shows that make one think, that require an above average intellect to understand and to see all of the underlying layers of messages that the show is sending out. I’m not part of the new generation Budweiser crowd that only wants to see a rehash of non-thinking, random video game-like violence in one hour bursts. I prefer a show that does carefully develop its characters, that involves some real human interaction rather than a “you’re dead, too bad for you” approach to storyline development. I like a show that makes you think about whether a person can exist in two seperate timelines simultaneously for instance. SGA had very well developed characters and a continuously developing story line that included realistic human feelings and experiences as well as some great science fiction all of which resulted in a rich and worthwhile viewing experience. I firmly believe that people who didn’t like the show were not intelligent enough to realize that nobody could survive day affter day shoot ‘em ups with aliens! SGU was the most realistic presentation of science fiction that I have enjoyed in the last 54 years, BAR NONE! I think it was written for people with more than a five minute attention span who were interested in more plausible/realistic characters and events. I will miss SGU for a long time.

June 16, 2011 at 7:59 pm
(1252) Thinker says:

SyFy is no longer worth watching. I would not bother pushing the buttons on my remote, its not worth the effort. I thought it was a great idea to begin with but the monkees have obviously taken over the zoo! Don’t you guys know how to finish a series? Perhaps you don’t know how to finish anything? That would explain your lack of vision and planning!
Here’s a new motto for you:

(1258) TmRadMan says:

SGU was the best written SF anywhere on TV, bar none. I loved Firefly too, but I would rank this up there with Joyce’s Ulysses. Terse, complex, profound and at times, difficult. But once you get started and immerse yourself in its richness… wow, fantastic.

I am very disappointed that it was dropped. I think it shows something about our society that high quality shows like SG-U just don’t meet popular demand.

Please, somebody else bring it back!

June 18, 2011 at 11:11 am
(1259) Paul says:

This is very dissapointing. I was hoping that the last show was simply the last episode of the season, not the series. I suppose for a show to be acceptable to the Syfy it must have blood and guts with a bit of comedy thown in.

SGU has been the only SG series that I have watched. There are very few quality Science Fiction programs, and the ones that survive are “fantasy/comedy” fluff shows such as Doctor Who (which could be a good show if it was designed for thinking adults). I grew up in the UK and remember the first ever episode.

Being a fan of writers such as Arthur C Clarke and Isaac Asimov, I appreciate good, intelligent and thought provoking science fiction stories. SGU was such a program. Shame on the syfy for cancelling it. I suppose their idea of decent material revolves around vampires and werewolves.

Is there a write-in campaign to try and persuade the syfy channel to bring the show back?

June 19, 2011 at 5:12 pm
(1260) HardCoreSGUFan says:

I absolutely love SGU. It’s without a single doubt, the best TV show ever created, with the exception of Lost. The cast was brilliant and the story thrilling and immersive. It blows away all the other SG shows of yester year and I would go so far as to say it’s better than any Star Trech or other SciFi shows ever produced.

Please, bring this show back with all the original cast. What a horrible way to end too with such a heartfealt cliff hanger. Syfy didn’t have a clue what an amazing thing they had on their hands. Just because the immediate popularity wasn’t meeting expectations, didn’t mean it wouldn’t be a winner over the long haul. I didn’t even find out abou tthe show until after it was canceled. I blame a weak Syfy PR campaign. Syfy needs to rebuild their PR division from the ground floor and put SGU back in action!

I wasn’t too crazy about the show at first but it eventually grew on me. I looked forward to new episodes. A little too much focus on the intricacies of personal relationships and not enough interesting big picture scifi storylines.

The loss of this series is stupid ,this show rock to endever the mind in exploration of space. to leave it is very unwise of syfy is will make poeple turn off their tvs and go somewhere else for entertainment. If the creator would allow the ship to come to earth and and retro fit the ship for it mission it make more believeable , the mission wuold not be lost .poeple wannt them see the actors succeed in the story line they trying to make it to the destination and see a new stargate activated on the world thier searching for.syfy ..

To all those who worked so hard to put SG-1, SG Atlantis & SG-U on week in and week out…I thank you. These series were a staple of our household as I raised my two boys. Our family seemed to have grown up with the SciFi channel, but sadly the SyFy channel has lost touch with its roots. I urge those who work at SyFy to sit down and watch the original Star Trek. What carried that series and the many spin offs it created was great story telling. Grown men sitting in dark rooms attempting to annoy spirits that may or may not be there isn’t good story telling. It is just weird.

I am European, and i don’t understand why the american networks do cancel so many good shows …
Ok , cancel, but at least with a descent end.
Some shows like Flash Forward have a lot of potencial, at least here in Europe.

Also, in Europe these shows go Prime Time and reach a lot of people as it also aired on Free to air networks across Europe.
But they only care about US %

Same thing for Heroes, saw the end of 4th season and i was expecting a 5th… but NBC says nooooo

Too many show are canceled without have a end or a good end .
At least ShowTime seem to not work that way.

But if the cancelations goes and goes, soon, i’ll stop even to spend hours watching US shows who will be terminated without a closure and focus more on movies or wait till a tv show have several seasons and a end even if i must wait a lomg time, at least time will be invested seeing a story who have a start and a end.

Or …. see those series who have no closure to wait cause the closure is done in each episode : CSI , Hawaii , Outsourced , The middle …

Networks and NBC especialy , nowdays , “” if “” 24 was made, it would be better to wait to see if really the 24 episode will be done , cause they could cancel the show at episode 10 or even 23 ….

I have no trust actually in US Networks who seem only think in % and produce low cost stupid programms…
Worst of it ; public seem to prefer much more to see ” American Idol ” ….

I can’t believe they cancelled the show, don’t they think about the huge HUGE Stargate fans who have followed all the shows regardless of their Ups and Downs!? Are they now forgetting about the real viewers, the fans and just basing their decision on the masses who know nothing about Stargate!?? I mean come on! Of course the masses will stop viewing the show if there’s even one episode that feels boring to them! But what about us, huh!? We don’t care! We know better! Every show has very interesting episodes and not so interesting ones as well. You don’t stop watching after one or two not so interesting episodes, you just go with it! It’s obvious that there can’t be fighting and shooting all the time, you’d get bored after a few episode. So far I’ve loved the storyline and just when it was getting interesting, they decide to cancel the show! WE WANT SEASON 3!

SyFy is a business. Those making the shows are also in business. All of them need to make money or they can’t survive. The way the channel gets the money to pay the producers of the shows is through advertising revenue. If they aren’t earning money from a show, or in other words, their advertisers think that the show isn’t drawing the audience based on viewer stats, then they don’t want to advertise. If they don’t advertise, then, they kill the show hoping to pick up a new one that will give them the stats. It’s that simple. SyFy isn’t about great Science Fiction shows, it’s about making money from a group of people that watch it, just like any other channel. Only PBS can opperate at a loss year after year and get government funding to keep running.

(1273) jedics says:

i just finished the last episode, Im a big scifi fan, especially the serious BSG style that SGU was but for me the series was very hit and miss.

and the thing that was the biggest miss about the series is that the writers didnt know when they were onto a good thread and would just kill it of and return to the general tense plot lines and character relationships.

So much potential but it just didnt evolve enough to me, Not enough good encounters and way too many negative ones. Why do writers think there all ways has to be a bad alien or life threatening situation to make a compelling story?

the way BSG explore the cylons motivations is one of the main reasons it was so good rather than the standard ‘alien bad, must blow up alien’ story line with no real insight into their motivation and then writers wonder why no body cares when the ‘good guys’ win.

I would watch a 3 rd season but only because there is no more quality BSG with zero competition from rip offs like caprica.

There is a trend of cancelling good science fiction shows. We end up with this ever decreasing spiral, that true SyFy fans will not risk getting into a series as it is more likely to be cancelled resulting in a smaller fan base, smaller fanbases resulting in shows being cancelled.
Where does it stop?

What are you going to do to restore fan confidence in good SyFy?

June 25, 2011 at 10:42 pm
(1277) Frank says:

Looking back at the comments, and thinking about comments on other blogs, it’s true: SGU was done in largely by the whining fans of the older SG shows and, as Nick says at the top of this column, the “cornier style” of the earlier shows. One of those fans incessantly complained of the dark lighting of the Destiny sets and said that those who saw higher production values in SGU were only seduced by the hi-def. SGU’s story was way more intriguing; I couldn’t wait the week between episodes.
Is it still possible for another network to pick it up?

So i just got done watching SG-U (both seasons). Watching SG-Atlantis then SG-U i was sad that the season is not going to continue. As in SG-A, Atlantis made it home to earth and were as in SG-U your just left off on a clif hanger. I would really like to see a continuance to the SG-U series. I found it very interesting to watch and i was constantly watching it on my free time. Great series but we need more!

Over the years I’ve watched “Sci-Fi Channel” and then “Syfy get a stiffy every time they look to make some quick cash. The first time they pissed me off was with “Space, Above and Beyond”, and I don’t even know the circumstances about that. The least they could do with SGU was tie the umbilical with a movie like in the case with “Serenity”. No, instead they drop the third generation SG on the floor and let it bleed to death. I understand why they changed there name. Put a trendy name on an old series molester.

Dear SyFy,

You suck. You keep crap like ‘Haunted Collector’, ‘Warehouse 13′, ‘Hollywood Collectors’, ‘Ghost Hunters’ and all their knockoffs, ‘WWE Smackdown’ (WTF is that bollox?!) and play the worst sci-fi movies on earth. However, because the ‘numbers’ are off, you throw good shows under the bus of mass appeal.

Screw you SyFy, everyone knew the channel was going down the drain when you changed you name. You NBC whore, bad whore! Going for the easy money, spreading it to the lowest common denominator of viewers, and foregoing quality for quantity.

I’m blocking your channel. Piss off. Pffft! Jog On!

For those of you who like to watch ghost hunters..don’t turn on the Syfy channel. You are your friend just go in your back yard at night.

(1285) Cody says:

Honestly, some people are bound not to like it. If you don’t then this has nothing to do with you, you can go watch Wrestling on 20 other channels at any given time so please go do that.

Sure it wasn’t exactly the same as SG-1 or Atlantis, but seemingly a lot of people prefer it that way. Ignorance to that fact is just that. How do you know anyways that things wouldn’t have gone more like that later on after all the character building was essentially finished. It can only go so far after all, and to those that complain about the lack of things, I seen tons of amazing and wonderful things Si-Fi related. Such as the ship getting powered by Stars, to my recollection 2 alien species, which were more or less tied into multiple parts of the story, and a lot of crazy things happen revolving around the ship itself. That is Si-Fi last I checked.

Some people had trouble relating to characters, well You do not absolutely direly need to relate to everyone just for your entertainment and if you do, it sounds somewhat shallow for you to believe that to be the cold hard truth.

Yeah it was more Dramatic, and much for vividly detailed and I believed it to be Brilliant. More people then anyone who disagrees would like to admit, care for more then just shooting the alien and going on to a happy/suspenseful end. Although I will admit it is entertaining I do find it more worthwhile when its more then that. People agree with that.

They even brought in a couple old characters in a few spots, Jackson in Rush’s recollection while his mind was trying to find the ships Master code. McKay near the end of the second season dialing the ninth chevron too!

June 29, 2011 at 9:47 pm
(1286) Cody says:

The series did indeed start off very slow, that much is for certain. It was not so slow though, that anyone with any semblance of patience could not easily wait out. My father, brother and sister, all of which are very impatient, actually sat down and watched the entirety of Season 1 and 2 in a short 2 weeks. Not once did they get bored of it and say it was too slow.

As far as Sy-Fy goes, they are indeed money hungry fools. Airing Wrestling on a themed Channel is just sad. If your that desperate go off to a different type of Channel, clearly a duplicate of the action channels that they so desire. Then we can start seeing real Si-fi. :)

Most of this is just in response to sad (or pathetic) comments I seen reading through some of this.

I could probably go on for hours about how much certain people need to get replaced. Even longer so about how this is just a disheartening sight indeed, But I will stop it.
For instance everyone axing these good shows. Secondly everyone who lets anyone get away with Axing these good shows. Thirdly all money-driven poor excuses for a person.

There is more to life then money, enjoy it.
And No, I am not saying don’t watch Tv, there are tons of interesting things on there. Nor am I saying stay inside and be a mole for your life. I feel like someone will have some comment to that ^ but keep it to yourself, Its not important. When I am inside though, I like to watch something worthwhile and SGU was just that!

June 29, 2011 at 9:54 pm
(1287) Cody says:

Feel the need to Elaborate on some Character relating issues.

A few to name; Rush, he plays Chess, so do I! Well I believe that means I can relate to Rush. Albeit not all that much but I know I do in more then just that way.

Chloe’s Father died. A lot of people has had their father pass away. I doubt any real large number of them was saving a bunch of other people, let alone in the exact circumstances but regardless!

Eli, he likes to film things, I love it myself! I Also love taking pictures. Call me crazy, but I think I understand and relate to that.

Greer, he experienced real fear. Shortly after that Kidney transplant. Has no one ever experienced a fear in their life?

No one can ever say “OMG they are just like me!” No two people are exactly the same no matter how much you will it.

Well thats disheartening you just cant find good real scifi shows like SGU anymore with drama, acting, great acting, excellent writing, interesting background and story.. I think the name Syfy just shows you the bulk of the viewers dont have an IQ above room temperature and can’t handle any show that ismt constantly moving before there short attention span makes them loose attention because a car drove by.. They cant handle a deep show with story development and character development.. Im a hard core fan of SG1 and Atlantis.. But the ONE thing I felt the stargate franchise lacked was a deep serious type of show without all the 24/7 humor and action.. And SGU brought that. So im sad too see it go. Itd be great if it was picked up by another network but I just dont see it happening.. I guess I have two options now watch fake wrestling or not watch syfy the science fiction for dummies channel. I think ill take the no longer watching option so long scifi channel (i dont want to refer to it as syfy, it doesnt deserve the channel) had some fun with the once good channel.. And thank the writers of SGU for a great story!!!

Well it looks like Scifi has developed the FOX disease. I was not a huge fan of the Stargate verse but I had really liked the direction that Universe was going towards. People who were not experts learning to survive and having real conflicts. So Scifi pulls a FOX, anyone remember their keeping Slyders over Space Above and Beyond and of course Firefly.
I am soooo over ghost hunters and professional wrestling on a channel that is supposed to be Science Fiction. I would rather see re-runs of Lost in Space (ouch) than an overweight Sting. Seems that since Battlestar went off the air Scifi is in the tank.

(1295) woldisney says:

With all due respect to Major Carter, but “Whorehouse 13″ and “Sfinctuary” are crap. SGU is innovative – it did with the Stargate franchise what Battlestar Gallactica did to the former series with the same name. Granted, it needed a little effort of the viewers, but that was always rewarding. To the shortsighted moneydrive nitwits that decided to cancel the show because of the ratings: Van Gogh never sold one painting in his whole life! Only the very few understood what he was doing and appreciated it for what it was but the greater masses dismissed it as garbage. History has shown over and over again that the greater masses are never right. Why not learn from it?

While this show was different than other StarGate shows and started slow, it was indeed a good show. It was far more intelligent than the other shows in some ways and far more deep. Many did not like it because the majority of the public cannot understand anything with more than 2 subplots. I blame society, a failed educational system, lack of vision from everyone involved, and complete disrespect for science fiction in general from Syfy as a whole. Syfy is no longer science fiction channel. Now it is “lowest common denominator” channel, hence the WWF and low budget, poorly written, shallow shows they turn out. To put out such utter garbage their staff must be in the forementioned category of ill-educated mush-for-brains fools. I would call on all fans of the old series and new to boycott Syfy. Loss of dollars is the only way the industry as a whole will begin to listen again.

Thanks Showtime and Sci-Fi for 10 wonderful seasons of Stargate SG-1 and 5 Seasons of Atlantis. I never missed an episode and now own all of them on DVD including the movies. When you cancelled them I was truly disappointed and mad and wrote you a few lets say less than desirable letters telling you where you could shove your station and your execs. I just didn’t see the cancellations coming. This show however, Stargate Universe I kind of saw that one coming. But still I watched it as at least it was still something to do with Stargate so as a dedicated fan I stuck with it. It was gaining ground and growing on me but now I’ll never get to see it gain full speed. So yet another bad move on your part Sci-Fi Channel. But I understand the bean counters must keep track of every dollar and with the recession something had to go. A fire sale and SU was on fire apparently. well it’s back to channel surfing for me again or I’ll just dig out my Episodes of SG-1 and have me a marathon on my Big Screen and remember when your station ruled the satellite transponders. those were the days when The Execs at your station had the intestinal fortitude to actually keep a show longer than 28 days. But now that you all have nothing but yes men running the station we can expect more of these sudden cancellations in the near future. Maybe if you got rid of this excess dead weight in your offices you wouldn’t need to be so tight on your cutbacks with programming losing yet more subscribers. Oh well…..

(1299) Stargazer says:

Have to say this does not surprise me. I have watched every season and episode of Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe. I appreciate the writers trying to be a little deeper but it turned into a massive sob fest. The biggest problem for this series to was that it did not have a single episode where i thought that was great i could waatch that over and over. i have seen every episode of Stargate SG1 at least three times and every time i think wow that was really good. SGU did not have that.

you almost never see aliens and then whenever they meet aliens it is formulaic. Aliens come, ship gets shot up, jump to ftl, say we can not go through that again and pray the aliens do not find you again, and then they do and repeat scenario.

After two seasons i liked Greer and Scott but i still did not like them near as much as previous characters in the stargate franchise.

Also i saw nothing that made me think that this was true scifi and everything else was not. granted wrestling is not something that should be on syfy. a ship with advanced technology and yet everything on it has been seen before and is more advanced and it is not broken. Ancient chair seen it, stasis pods seen it, guns that are less effective than drones, stargate that cannot go as far unless it dials to the milky way galaxy, a plate that recharges batteries i have that at my house, the inventive use of solar power is the only thing never seen before and a ZPM (Zero Point Module) seems much more effective becuase they last for a long time if used wisely and you dont have to worry about pesky blockades on your stars.

Lastly why does it seem like every episode has someone dying and half of them die in ways that could have been avoided if some of these people could actually step up and be a leader.

So as a said before it does not surprise me that they cancelled this show. Might be interesting if they picked it up elsewhere but i am not sad to see it go.

(1300) StargateUniverse says:

I’m quite ashamed of the news im reading, I have been a big fan of previous SG’s and own their set boxs and will not stand to see this go. This is an amazing show and i’am upset to see it go before its time.

Idiot syfy for dropping it.

(1303) SG Veteran says:

I morn and miss SGU as I do SG1 and Atlantis. Took me a while to get into SGU, mainly because I was not impressed with the cancellation of Atlantis. I feel Atlantis had a great deal of room for storyline development and I couldn’t understand why the powers that be would kill a fantastic show with an existing fan base in favour of ANOTHER Stargate franchise. Run them together, yeah ok, I can see that but to cancel one to start another…WTF? I thought SGU was doomed before it began for the above reasons, but to its credit it lasted 1 season more than I thought it would.
To be perfectly honest I don’t even bother watching new sci-fi shows anymore, they get canned before they can even begin. SyFy have slit their own throat with their moronic management. Wither and die ya bastards!

Far well Stargate, thanks for the fun and memories.

July 8, 2011 at 7:15 pm
(1304) Gini says:

I think SGU was cancelled because the writers weren’t clever enough or considerate enough to be able to bring the Destiny crew home. Pretty nasty of them if you ask me. I LOVE SGU, just like all the other Stargates. I was very fond of most of the characters. They were so human. But I believe SGU showed the best of humanity in a tough situation. May the Destiny crew rest eternally at peace in their stasis pods.

July 9, 2011 at 11:36 am
(1305) wannaknowwhy says:

I Know why it was cancelled…. its our own fault. shows like this attract a more unique forward thinking audience. i’m from Australia and i don’t have cable t.v so my “viewing” doesn’t count to syfy but i have downloaded all stargates, startreks and all the (very few) good sci-fy shows there are and thats the problem…. if warehouse 13 was on t.v i may watch it as apposed to reality t.v and all the other absolute crap on t.v but i would never waste my time downloading it (and i have 6.5 terrabites of t.v series alone)…. and shows like w.w.f have a massive retarded following but try find all episodes of it for download (not that id want it) so the only way to see it all is to view it on t.v as it is aired.
Any show that attracts an intelligent younger crowd will only get downloaded and will eventually get axed.
futurama was having the same problems but in the end like simpsons you can watch it over and over and its still amusing so when it gets aired people tune in.

July 9, 2011 at 11:39 am
(1306) wannaknowwhy says:

Alas the only way these good shows will survive is if the channels offer them as downloads at a SMALL price (considering they don’t need to pay for production or take up there daily time slots) i would happily pay to download the rest of the shows for a price. but like most i will not wait every week to watch it on t.v …… if i happen to be at home or awake when they disied to air it, just so they can make money from adds depending on potential viewers. and i will not pay the ridiculous price for it on a breakable cd…….. 6.5 terrabites id be up for tens of thousands of dollars.
for good shows to survive they need a new system for making profit like product placement or for dumb-asses watching w.w.f and alike shows to grow a brain and start watching good decent AND REAL acting
its a new age where people want to watch what they want when they want, the problem is not the shows writers actors or viewers. its the companies that think what once made a dollar will always make a dollar…… its called evolving the product for evolving people…….and yes some of you buy the cd as support but you only make up about 1% of world wide viewers. like i said there is support out there the marketers need to reach it

(1307) Mustang says:

Talk about short-sighted. The show was just starting to gather steam. I loved the show. It started out kinda gritty, didn’t like it that much at first, but everything was just starting the get really good. Didn’t NBC cancel Star Trek? Some people just never learn!!! Warehouse 13?!? You’re kidding right? That show blows chunks.

July 10, 2011 at 1:38 pm
(1308) Wilkie Poo says:

Come on, guys. It was a disappointing show. It took everything I had to stick it out and keep watching. I held out hope that such an interesting premise and situation would finally come together and start moving into some good story telling, but it just never did.

There were FAR TOO MANY repeated situations and callbacks to old, dead story-lines that probably should have remained closed. There were FAR TOO MANY contradictions of the rules the show kept setting for itself, killing the whole Suspension of Disbelief contract between writer and viewer. And worst of all, there were FAR TOO MANY deus ex machina instances five minutes before the end of an episode.

It all boiled down to lazy writing. End of story. Such a shame to see yet another avenue of the human possibility cut short and sealed away due to Hollywood complacency and copyrighting. Now we can’t get this journey back.

July 10, 2011 at 8:22 pm
(1309) James West says:

This was one of the best series that syfy has come out with in a long time. I am very disappointed and I may never watch syfy channel again because it was in my opinion the only thing worth tuning into the station for. R.I.P. SG-U you will be missed.

(1310) Frankie says:

So, are we just going to roll over and have a funeral for SGU? PREMATURE, isn’t it? Network Doctors may says it’s dying, but…if more episodes are to air…to me, it’s still breathing – still alive. We still have time. Is there not someone, somewhere who can save SGU? Doesn’t even the Channel (hate to use the name) teach us to “Believe!” History records that faithful (and faith-filled) Viewers who actively desire for a program to “live,” can have more united ‘power’ potential than do the decision-makers in the Boardroom. I say, Band together – Believe – and Behold…we will see SGU come off of life-support, and find a new home. It’s time to power-up. Somebody dial the Gate!

(1312) SGU says:

Seeing old episodes of SG-1 and Atlantis, I can see why SGU got canceled. There was nothing fun about it. If I wanted to see bickering people I’d watch a WB show. This was more 90210 in space. Good riddance to bad trash.

you must admit, that the first season was such a crap, so leaking in character development, in finding a main reason for this switzer cheese like ship to be still floating into the depths of the universe and jeah it was the worst of all the shows before!
BUT, this second season WAS entertaining, reasonable in both character development and storyline.
Truly, the best episode was actually “Seizure” Season 2 number 15 ,with Dr. Rodney McKay involved.

And I believe the show finally found itself a reason d’etre!

in my opinion the moment scifi turned into syfy it lost all its credibility to me and this shows it. SGU was a great show and it seemed like it was just about to get to the really exciting part. I was just looking up when season 3 would come out when i found this thread and i am extremely dissapointed now…

Oh MAN!! Why cancel SGU?? It doesn’t make any since to me at all. My family and I watch it everyday when it was on and were expecting more of it, Thanks for nothing for who ever decided to cancel it. You ruined a perfectly good family “sci fi” show for nothing. You should be ashamed of your self!!!!

Just finished watching this amazing series. In my opinion this is the best from the Stargate franchise to date. Great story, acting and graphics. I just found out that Syfy won’t be approving the next season or SGU at all. What a bitter disappointment for everyone involved and more importantly the fans.

I hope that someone out there can get behind this series and return SGU to the screen sooner than later.

(1323) Anon says:

I just started watching season 1 last week and found it to be surprisingly good. I was NEVER a fan of anything StarGate so was very skeptical to say the least..I thought I would hate this, but damn has it been good & getting better all the time. I just finished the episode ‘Space’ with their first Alien encounter and it kicked so much ass. I hope the show goes on in some form.

July 21, 2011 at 1:19 pm
(1324) Anon says:

I think SGU could have been made far better. These are my opinions on how:

*Start a plot that you can actually finish and don’t end it if you can’t with some lame excuse. I.e. TJ being pregnant. To me it seems they didn’t want to go through the hassle of finishing that plot and have a baby on board so they just decide to shoot TJ in a rescue attempt, save her but oh the baby isn’t going to make it I’m so sorry. And then what’s up with the dream, where the hell did that come from? That was completely random which leads to the next point…

*Don’t be random, where do some of these come from, like Rush being rescued by aliens who try to kill everyone on board Destiny, or TJ having this strange dream about being back on the planet they left some people on and seeing her baby that’s supposedly dead, and these cabins appearing out of no where and she can see a nebula that she is going to see in the future… Where did that come from, how and WHY?!

*WE NEED COMIC RELIEF!!!! In SG-1 we had Teal’c, in SG-A we had Rodney, Ronan and Teyla with there own comic contributions along with Colonel Sheppard’s sarcasm occasionally. With SGU there isn’t anything… we have no comic relief, it seems to go on forever with these serious situations and moods and it seems no good will come of anything, I want to laugh occasionally while watching this so my morale doesn’t go down watching their morale plummet.

*Let’s explore! We see the same part of the ship every god damned episode! Are they ever going to succeed in accessing more of the ship? Or are they going to be stranded in these sections all the time…

I feel that if SGU were given these things then it would be much better… Bring it back, but with change…

Always about the stupid ratings or money issue I guess. Who cares about your stupid Russian Roulette ratings. If the show is good, it should remain in the air. Might as well have nothing in the air, What would you do with nothing to do huh? I just hope the next Stargate whatever doesn’t turn into an animated crap idea they keep coming up with to replace all this cancelled show.

July 24, 2011 at 10:47 pm
(1327) AiresOfwar says:

I have noticed a lot of SG fans did not care for SGU do to the lack of action which felt like filler episodes to me. It was not hard to get bored sometimes when watching SGU but the storyline itself was amazing. Sure their could of been more action but I think that is something they could of incorporated into season 3. I am not a big fan of mellow drama shows but I got beyond that feeling and enjoyed SGU. I just wish their was more closure to the storyline. Maybe someone will write a book or something!

(1331) Mark F. says:

Funny, I loved SG-1, I didn’t really warm up to Atlantis, and I loved SGU the best…great storytelling, excellent acting, it really sucked you in with an otherworldly vibe…Cooper and Wright really took their vision with SG-1 and gave it an exciting evolution with SGU, in my humble opinion.
Of course, I was made when TTSCC was axed from Fox so what do I know?

July 29, 2011 at 6:32 pm
(1332) Kevin Gøhler says:

This is so sad! SGU was one of my favourite shows. It had such great characters – and an interresting storyline too. Also, the sets and the filming were better than the previous two shows (although I liked them too, especially SG-1). I really hope someone would take up this show again – else I’m going to do it myself, when I get rich.


Howcome the good shows are allowed to die out, when so much crap is sent on TV.

(1333) Mynder says:

The thing is…what new Sci-Fi series am I going to invest my time in, when it’s likely the storyline won’t get finished?

Will they be happier if I don’t watch until the final episode is done, and concludes the storyline?

July 31, 2011 at 3:44 pm
(1334) Kevin says:

Look – the show is a great. Probably the only error was naming it Stargate Universe because it’s totally different from SG1. I think fans of SG1 who tuned in to SGU expecting a similar story line were disappointed. There was no need to have a stargate since most times, they were just using it to transport to a world within range of the ship.
Additionally, to capture the 18 to 20 something, just add some T&A – they did it with Star trek Voyager with the introduction of the 7 of 9 character, and got a few more years out of it. All your looking to do is to have people tune in to see how good the show is. If you need to use a little bait to do it, so what

(1345) Phil Marcs says:

To be honest i found SGU to be rather claustrophobic and depressing on a consistent basis. I was hoping that it would improve as it gathered momentum, but the confines of a ship which keeps going wrong, and a crew whos animosity was so constant left little to work with. It wasnt nearly as enjoyable to watch as SG1 or Atlantis. That being said, I am very glad that Sanctuary is continuing, as its really picked up in season 3 and has some epic story lines, plus their budgets must have increased somewhat due to the more sophisticated CGI being used. Bring on season 4…..

August 8, 2011 at 5:59 pm
(1346) tyrone says:

I think its a real shame that they have cancelled Stargate Universe , just when it started to get its running legs on it was cut short. I really enjoyed the program as much as the other programs, SG1 and Atlantis, although it was slower to get into flight than the other two, I do believe the show would have been fantastic! The show had great potential and shouldnt have been cut :(

August 8, 2011 at 6:18 pm
(1347) Nuno says:

I am a Portuguese fan that used to watch the stargate series thanks to the internet. In my opinion the SGU had the most deep and interesting approach of all the sg series. It was more focused in the human side of the characters and of course more human and realistic, that’s for sure. Unfortunatly, ignorant minds only understand “fastfood shows”, easy to understand and to digest. It’s sad. The sgu was like literature turned into a tv show, wich is rare. It was too much, too deep, too difficult for ignorant and small minds. And as usually the profit is the only thing that matters. This is another happening that reflects the world we are living in.

August 14, 2011 at 12:31 am
(1355) Corey says:

I have to say, it’s not surprising of SyFy to cut SGU considering this was a pilot to the original franchise. This concept of turning Stargate into a drama genre was really, in hindsight, a bad decision. Certainly this opened up a whole new fan base, but it also turned much of the established fan base away.

The main reason is constant cliff hanging. Every episode is a cliff hanger now. Even though it may build suspense, the next episode becomes a cliff hanger to the previous episode over and over again. With SG1 and SGA, you had maybe one or two cliff hangers every season. Constant cliff hanging leaves the viewer bored as the episode is expected never to be resolved.

For those who have seen SG1, realize that SGU is nothing in comparison, rather it is fundamentally different, but also similar at the same time. The story line for SGU is excellent on paper, but on screen it’s the same story as SG1. For example, you have Teal’q, he proves his worth and becomes a member (SG1). And you have Varro (Mike Dopud) who accomplished the same task in a very similar fashion (SGU). The constant possession of Jack O’Neill due to Ancient technology, and the constant possession of Chloe Armstrong (Elyse Levesque) after her abduction. There’s many more to list.

Another turn away for the established fan base is the lack of humor. I hate to say this, but the humor brought by O’Neill, Rodney MacKay, Val and Teal’c, were crucial to the success of the first two series. There is little humor in SGU, it’s far too serious.

The actors, though talented, wasted their time on this show. Luckily, there’s a small glimmer of hope if HBO or Showtime picks the series up, but it’s doubtful considering the successful line ups they already have. If they do pick up the series, we can hope the writers and analysts over there can improve SGU, because the guys writing this have failed with flying f***ing colors.

LMAO I love all the haters for this show! if you didnt like it why did you look for season 3 to find this and comment. anyone who doesnt like anything about either 3 of the series can go to H***. SG-1 was epic in everyway. lovable characters. awsome in depth story that made sence over a 10+ season run! Atlantis was almost even more awsome! Y NO MORE!!! scyfy needs to realise the dvd box sales on these shows are outragous and keep them on for that. either way atlantis and sgu should be brought back atleast to finish!

(1372) david from philly says:

I tried so hard to get into SGU. I loved the other two series. I think my problem was that I loved Battlestar Galactica so much that I felt they were trying to copy it. At least the way they filmed it. Also, I could not get into the characters (though liked a couple of them) I hated that there was so much infighting. But every week I couldn’t remember who was who.

I forced myself to watch it every week because I needed a fix after BSG and just hoped it would get better. I did not believe any character and felt manipulated a lot. Not sure why, maybe it was the acting. Or the writing.

But please bring back some Stargate. I enjoyed the first two.

WTF! SGU IS the best of all SyFy. Why would they do this! Someone plez pick it up! Without SGU I have no reason to live!

August 26, 2011 at 8:36 pm



Is Wresting now alien based, or do UFO’s beam random audience members up for probing. Or is there any other “space” like feature to a Wrestling show aside from the area between the stars ears ? Seriously SyFy — Get Bent ! There are thousands of other stations broadcasting this poo, and it doesn’t even fit into your theme of “Science Fiction”. SGU does, and you CLEARLY have plenty of viewer support.

What about Caprica ? Maybe take-up V since it got dinged ! … The Event. There are a lot of good artists out there with unfinished shows and no home that fit your “Science Fiction” theme — and WRESTLING of ALL THINGS!!! Is not one of them.

(1375) LulzSGUsckd says:

You can’t make a crappy Soap Opera in space that’s like a dumbed down idiots version of Lost and expect it to last 5 years.

SGU was practically nothing but angst, long pauses, and sex scenes. Unless you’re some overly hormonal daytime soap opera addicted house wife you should have been offended by the bad writing and gratuitous melodrama. The show was utter crap, it was worse than watching General Hospital, I don’t know how any of you people can stomach such garbage.

Oh well, Syfy does market to the lowest common denominator, I mean you pretty much have to be functionally retarded to watch Ghost Hunters and all that other paranormal fakeumentery crap, I guess it’s only fitting that SGU would be turned into a show targeted at trailer trash it reflects the general direction of the network.

(1378) thehulkster says:

Once again I have been let down. I waited for.this series to go on dvd to watch the shows back to back,considering I had to work nights while it was on. Being a huge huge fan of the entire stargate series I didn’t want to miss a single show. While it was slow to start off in season one , I knew that it would pick up as time went on. I was pleased with the character’s build up and the background stories that made this show much more personal and sucked me in. This show has so much potential!!! But alas another dumb ass move by scyfy cancelling this show too:-( and to another point that makes me want to bang my head against the wall…. Wrestling is not science fiction !!!! Omg really !!! So once again I am left empty wanting more. Wtg scyfy you lost another dedicated loyal nerd/geek due to your idiodicy.

(1380) ShelliBear35 says:

I LOVE SGU! The problem is that I can’t afford cable and I have to wait until it arrives to Netflix – which SyFy receives royalties for too! Though I wasn’t too inpressed with season 1, I loved season 2. With that said, I don’t get why SyFy decided to get rid of the show all together, especially in the way that they did. My only hope is that with the way that they left the story open that SyFy has decided that maybe in a year or in next spring that they will bring it back. After all, with the wonderful run of SG-1 and SG-A that they network will understand that there are many devoted fans to come back to SG-U (even after a break of time of programing).

August 30, 2011 at 10:12 pm
(1381) Lents says:

Well. With the wrestling show on syfy and Stargate Universe cancelled, I think they have pissed some people off royally. I mean come on, it was such a great show, expecially the second season.

(1382) Dave says:

Prime time Sci Fi Friday was the BEST. And ALL the Stargates. I looked forward to Sci Fi Friday at the end of the work week. Get rid of the wrestling!!! What’s it got to do with good science fiction? I haven’t watched SyFy since the wrestling started.

(1385) GB says:

Obviously TV execs don’t watch much Sci Fi. I thought SGU was probably my favourite Stargate show. It took a while to get into it, but now I’m hooked. It would have been nice to see how it ends. Maybe a book to provide the stories end.

September 5, 2011 at 3:06 pm
(1386) D.L.Jones says:

Stargate Universe in my view was great,the story line had a good plot with twists and shocking out comes.At the same time I also felt that the writing team was getting a little tired. I do not think the series should have been cancelled,but maybe given a longer break.To give the writing team more time to do what they wanted before coming back to the series.

September 6, 2011 at 6:43 pm
(1387) MikeG says:

So unfortunate. I was really getting into this show. I thought it started off a little slow, but then it started having interesting storylines with openings for future episodes. I didn’t see the recent Battlestar Galactica series when it first aired, but I’ve recently started watching it and I must say I now appreciate SGU that much more. I’d rather watch a rerun of SGU than a new episode of Battlestar. Any day.

(1388) kevin says:

It would figure that they had a good thing going the story lines were great thing like this ship can and may excists you can never tell with our gov who prefer to lie to us and hid the truth with more lies the cast of sgu was awsome and story lines believeable its a shame they could not pull there head out of there ass and play the last epasodes to the end now I feel deprived and sify owso they owe me the rest of the season thanks sify

September 7, 2011 at 6:21 am
(1389) Muhly says:

SGU was a brilliant reinvention of the stargate franchise. i cant understand why anyone would want it to be a carbon copy of sg1 and Atlantis. sg1 was brilliant as well but as far as plot goes it was no different than sg1 essentially ( Evil aliens enslaving humans on other planets) don’t get me wrong i like atlantis but it is more like later episodes of sg1 while sgu is far more similar to the original movie and early sg1. the show started slow but was thought provoking and just required patients that no one seems to of had which is sad. who knows maybe in threes years they will bring it back.

September 10, 2011 at 2:35 pm
(1390) Esperanza says:

SGU supera en expectativas a las otras 2. En mi opinión es una serie que tiene TODO, un estilo propio y no un plagio de lo anterior, un conjunto de personajes realmente interesantes cuya personalidad hacen que la serie siga evolucionando. El contenido y asesoramiento en las diferentes ramas de las ciencia, tecnología e inclusive filosofía están a nivel y quizás superan la abstracción de muchos, sin embargo, nos abre la mente, nos hace reflexionar, nos hace pensar y nos hace esperar un nuevo episodio.
Aquí lo importante no es ver un exterior, creo que la serie escapa a otro nivel, es más el tema se debe desarrollar en la nave más que afuera y descubrir sus propios misterios, eso es lo que es. Lo rico no está en hacer exteriores, está en el conocimiento que se adquiere para seguir el viaje. Sabiamente concluyo, en este viaje el principio y el fin no son el objetivo sino todo lo que se experimenta en el camino.
Afirmo, los productores de SG-U deben apostar a sus ideas y hacerlas realidad. El marketing no lo es todo en la vida, es ese dejar algo en la gente que comparte la experiencia lo que realmente importa. Cambiar la conciencia, reflexionar, redescubrir…..
Apuesto a una continuación SG-U, no solo tercera temporada sino muchisimas más.
Gente!!! SG-U fue premiada, sus actores lo merecen y nosotros también!!! animo, no hay imposibles y apuesto a la nueva temporada.

September 11, 2011 at 12:17 am
(1391) Kyle Sire says:

I think the cancellation of SGU is a gross mistake for SYFY (actually preferred the old name SCI-FI).
SGU concept was fresh, I keep wanting to reach the end but the story holds true to all great literature, there was twists and plots, you never say coming at all. I think the cancellation of this show further buys in to the idiocy of the modern television viewer, that wants everything now and “in your face”. No thought, reasoning or complex thinking behind anything which is what SGU was, a story that called for thought, intelligence the appreciation of the build up to the climax. SGU was like the good book you found in weird section of the library but could put it down once you started reading even thought in weighed more than a pound. I feel cheated that I started this journey with The Destiny and now she’s gone and I wont know what was her mission- what was waiting for us?

September 11, 2011 at 1:04 am
(1392) Ponyboy says:

This is an old thread. I just finished watching the last episode of SGU on Netflix. I didn’t watch the show much when it was on but I’ve seen every episode in the last couple of months. I wish I would have discovered it sooner to help the ratings by a small percentage. I loved it and was anxious to see where the story would go next. There were so many possibilities. It would be great if another network would pick it up. I’m also watching SG1 and Atlantis on Netflix and am a fan of those too but SGU is my fave.

September 11, 2011 at 9:15 pm
(1393) Jake says:

I have watched the stargate series for 2 years now, and its the best series ive ever seen sci-fi wise. Its an amazing tale. Especially “Universe”. This is a fucking shame that this is being canceled, and they may have their reasons, but its a damn shame. My gratitude goes out to Stargate, for being an amazing series.

September 12, 2011 at 6:40 pm
(1394) Davor says:

What is going on with quality stuff? New shows, games, movies everything is made for idiots. The end of intelligence. What is there left to watch? Not just on SciFi (though I don’t have it), but in general. Eureka, Warehouse 13? What a load of crap. What happened to stuff like X-files, Star Trek. It seems to me like the movie Idiocracy will come true one day, soon.

September 13, 2011 at 1:20 am
(1395) UBrokeMySmolder says:

I love this show. I didn’t like SG-1 and I loved SG Atlantis but this one is my favorite and now I will never know what happens. They need to at least make a good movie to end it. :( Either that or they need to go frack themselves.

(1396) French fan says:

I could never understand all these crazy series fans until I met Stargate Universe and now I learn that I will already be deprived from this new exciting feeling. I couldn’t wait for season 2 to be translated into French and had to watch it on the Internet just to realize that there were no season 3! I would have a lot to say about the greatness of the plot, actors, decors and even choices of the musical themes but I am too sad to figure out how to say all that in English so farewell my beloved SGU et j’espère que ce n’est qu’un au revoir.

September 13, 2011 at 10:18 pm
(1397) Tosin says:

So, I’ma join in on this too. I just saw the Morlocks preview. Could it be an attempt to make up for the sorry decision to cancel stargate u.? In my own opinion, nothing can truly replace stargate other than the real stargate.

Yea, I think i’ll just have to keep looking around :)

(1398) Aaron says:

How dare they cancel this show when thruthfully and im sure a lot of other people/fans will or have agreeed that this was the most entertaining not to mention realistic series EVER! !!!!!!!!! Whoever made this decision at SyFy needs to be FIRED if it wasn’t for stargate coming to your network…making it what it is we would have to deal with your corny homemade. Movies……so much for thanks

SGU had a great cast and great story
compared to the other stargate series that had

i was thinking of getting syfy on my tv again but with
wrestling and other boring show as sacturary ore other crap show’s im never going to sign up again

(1403) Chaotica says:

Is that really possible, to cancel SGU but leave something as stupid and unwatcheable as Heaven on? What does it say about the viewer’s intelligence and SyFy’s money-grabbing policies? And to do it with the best of the Stargate shows? SG1, that really was made for audiences UNDER the age of 12 endured for 10 seasons, not-so-much better Atlantis 5, but the really interesting and best of three gets abruptly aborted after only 2 seasons.
So so stupid Syfy execs… I hope they all get fired and Syfy goes bankrupt.

September 19, 2011 at 4:35 am
(1404) SGU Fan says:

Tthe fan base is still there even after it’s been canceled. What a shame to just drop it. If they knew the ratings were bad then they could have at least changed things up and gave it more attention. It was the only thing I watched on Syfy, not that other crap like everyone else has already mentioned.

It’s weird but I kinda feel robbed here. It was a good show to watch. Even the cast was a good match in my opinion.

September 19, 2011 at 12:09 pm
(1405) one of the fans says:

one thing i dont get, is that they’re a canceling one of the best sifi series since sg1:( dum asssssss’s, and series like Warehouse 13 and Gost hunters are still aired! its just does not make any seens!!!

i was really looking forward to season 3!!!!!

September 19, 2011 at 1:33 pm
(1406) william byard says:

I know i`m only one (1) fan, but I can`t understand why the channel is convoluted with re-runs, which I watch faithfully. If they have no loyalty in perserving a wonderful pastime for si-fi watchers, they can forget about my ongoing support in the future.

September 19, 2011 at 9:25 pm
(1407) Doug Albert says:

I have to say I only check syfy to see if they have changed there mind. Not protesting but there really is nothing on there I like. Loved the Stargate series, all of them. wasn’t sure how I would like Stargate Universe but got hooked on it. Its kind of how these channels evolve I guess. remember when MTV played music?

(1410) John King says:

This show was good. Just realized it’s the end of September and hadn’t heard anything. Decided to go search the nets. This is a disaster. Sci-fi drama is good. Eureka made it, but just barely in my opinion. The other strangeness like Alpha’s and Warehouse 13 just make me shake my head. I can’t watch them, too hollow, too comedic. Alphas I don’t even know what’s with that show. The bad acting of someone who is autistic REALLY lost me. What would Stephen Hawking do if he could switch bodies with an able bodied person if only for a few days? It had everything that was lacking in today’s Science Fiction TV shows. The Drama was interesting. Even non Sci-Fi fans could get into it. Well I guess that’s it for science fiction TV series. I guess I’ll just have to wait for the next season of Game of Thrones. Not Science Fiction I know, but still a fantasy drama. I’m 33 and I make more money than most 25 year olds, certainly more than I did when I was 25. Why is this demographic so important?

September 22, 2011 at 8:12 am
(1411) Joe Gagyi says:

One of the best Sci Fi shows ever made cancelled ?

(1412) T-Wigs says:

SG1 gave us the thrill we wanted after the original movie Atlantis picked up and helped keep us entertained while hoping for more SG1 but after 5 seasons nothing happened and they ended yet another good series then SGU…..you know what the only good thing bout Atlantis and SGU is the fact they both had guest appearances from Michael Shanks in their pilot episodes….. so i guess the real question is whats next

September 22, 2011 at 6:46 pm
(1413) Jeff says:

This is why I don’t even watch the SYFY channel anymore. Stargate had a great cast, story and special effects. Though SYFY has many series, it seemed each of them would lack one of those “BIG 3″ elements. Stargate was captivating and to learn of it’s cancellation is very disappointing. I have been a long time fan of Stargate since it aired on regular television. Maybe perhaps another network will pick up the ball that SYFY is obviously dropping. Again, I could care less about any other series SYFY has aired. My only reason for even tuning to their network was to watch this series. I guess I won’t have much of a reason to tune to them anymore. :-)

No wonder Americans are getting dumber day by day. Someone should actually do some research and I am sure it can be proved true. It is like end of intelligence. The movie ‘Idiocracy’ is so true for US. This is on par with the dumbing down of the educational system. It is really sad to see intelligent shows like SGU is getting cancelled in favor of craps that is being shown on Sy Fy (Sci Fi – another dumbing down). That was the only show I found tolerable to watch on Sci Fi and now its gone.
Its really horrific to think where we are heading.

(1420) 1Alteran says:

Thank you Brad Wright, Robert C Cooper etc for making such a wonderful show. I have loved every second of every minute of every episode of SG1, SGA and SGU. for the first time since I was a 14 years old no one will be making stargate. SGU was cancelled just when it started to get good. not just good but REALLY good. SGU was a show that had earnt respect when so many people were ready to turn their back on the franchise, and SyfyThanks for destroying the one show that kept people watching your ridiculous channel. Syfy hey? The program lineup just blows me away with its science fiction content… Do the right thing Syfy and and resurrect this show, let them tell the story that we all want to hear and see. If you don’t. I like many others will never watch your channel again. Thanks SGU for being such a great show and syfy WTF? Seriously WTF? thanks for nothing.
Brad and the rest, you guys rock. Stargate was the best SCIFI ever written (along with Battlestar, which at least got to tell its story).

Long live SGU… one of the best SCIFI shows ever created.

(1425) 1Alteran says:

Well said deepfalcon (1415). Why on earth syfy would cancel cancel a show that was ‘intelligent’ is beyond my level of comprehension. SGU was a multilayered show with themes that challenged audiences on an emotional and intellectual level. The notion that people would rather watch crap like wrestling as opposed to good science fiction says a lot for the American people and /or the bean counters at syfy. I only hope t-man Aussie (1417) is right. Hopefully its not goodbye SGU, but see you later…

(1427) Michael C. Robinson says:

I personally think with new writers that the characters could change to live moral lives because of TJ losing the baby and their dire circumstances. Get this done and make the show more of a Sci-Fi. Let TJ beat ALS. Heck, maybe a priest should use the stones to marry TJ and colonel Young. Further, that Andy woman needs to get over Scott and possibly hook up with Eli. Clean up the morality and dump the fringe issues. Maybe the communication stones should break, nothing man made lasts forever after all. If breaking the communication stones is out of the question, at least make the Earth scenes add to what is happening on Destiny. After all, bright minds on Earth are working to help the crew of the Destiny get home.

Here’s a possible plot line for the next episode. Eli stops reminiscing as it sets in on him that he is on the clock. He searches previously unsearched areas in Destiny and discovers another space craft as parts. Eli also discovers that the other seed ship is near by. Running low on atmosphere and food, Eli decides to assemble the space craft and get to the seed ship. On board the seed ship, he discovers a race of Aliens that speak ancient who have food and plenty of atmosphere. Eli decides to connect the two ships, Destiny and the second seed ship, together and continue with his plan. Eli and the aliens figure out over the course of a month or so how to build a super gate and finding one beyond the current galaxy, they decide to dial it.
Arriving in the next galaxy, Eli wakes the others, introduces them to their alien allies, and a battle with the controllers of the drones soon ensues.

Damn, you syfy. Look I have been a fan of every stargate series that has been released and I was just getting hooked on SGU. It’s an awesome show. It gives us a different view of it all. SG1 Daniel jackson’s ascension. (EPIC!), Atlantis team getting atlantis back to earth was a weak and easy win for them. But SGU has the promise to be even better than those. Bring it back!

That was the only tv program I actually watched.

OMG!! The only reason I watched this show was to see the inhabitants of the ‘Destiny’ reach earth, find their way home. What a waste of talent and viewing hours! Does anyone know if there will be a follow up show? Just to tie up the loose ends? I’m so sick of these stupid shows that suck you in and then get cancelled. I’m not watching anymore american t.v. shows, the stupid producers never know how to finish what they start.

I have watched all Stargate shows from seasons 1 – the end.
SG.1 great series even tho it was made in the mid 1990′s
SG Atlantis was even greater but it ended poorly with Atlantis just sitting there on earth with a wraith on earth aswell, you would think that something would just try to save the wraith and destroy earth, but Noooo.
SGU. EVEN BETTER!!!!!!! nothing can describe how awesome SGU WAS.
I have grown up with Stargate by my side. And i still will grow up with Stargate by my side forever.. I am an addict to Stargate. Stargate needs another Stargate show like SGU but different enough to let us know that destiny didn’t make it or something like that. STARGATE FTW!!

(1442) Crystal says:

First off Sci-Fi channel your assholes I’m canceling your channel off my cable TV package not that you probbley care anyways.

Secondly Despite that this news may be a few months old I only just found out after watching season 2 ep20 tonight.
never understode how any Entertainment company can judge show ratings by looking at the views of negative minded people this world honestly would be better off without them thay should be listening to the people ho actually care about seeing somthing grow to its fullest.

A large part of me now knows deep down that any new stargate series that may show up on the horizon is just going to fail becouse some entainment company desided to deminished a long good standing Tv series for the greed of profit and listening to the wrong people.

I can think of one thing that comes to mind over all this that I think every TV show publishing company should take note off Take the tv series supernatural it has faced countless terminations and yet it still keeps coming back Why?
well simply thay actually give a dam about the people that care for the show and if there own main stars in the show can pitch the founding for the series than it agen shows thay care
stop listening to the whining idiots out there and do somthing constructive bring SGU back Before you destroy whats left of the best sci-fi fanchise there is

Seriously, we all want syfy to bring back SGU, but they don’t really deserve a show of that caliber. Hopefully another network can bring it back to life. I’m still just gutted that there is no more stargaze. PLEEEEEASE bring it back. I love all stargate and I truly believe that SGU had the potential to be the best of the franchise. Season three would have been epic…

No way, this has been the best sci fi for ages, to axe it now after getting past the first season is madness and nothing else.
This is as bad as Deadwood getting canned by HBO.

Please please please run another season, hell i see no reason why it couldn’t go the full 5 years, no other sci fi has so much potential and quality to it.

What happened to closure? This is the third series we have got hooked on… and also the third series that wont be extended… They should be banned from finishing seasons with unanswered questions when they are not 100% sure they will be continuing with further seasons….

(1448) Lotr says:

That was almost best end I ever seen. (Better was only in Live on mars.)

But after “return death part of crew” back to ship, the series must end. It start look like survivor/battlestar with “god save the day” and it is not part of SG.

Keep it up and the people I know will stop watching, and we all know you can not make it without us.oh and stop with the homosexual on warehouse 13 or! We stop watching that to.

after terminator series got cancelled i was bummed now been waiting for more SGU eraseing all the reruns finally checking to see if i needed to keep the series on DVR. first year was good second year was boring but i was expecting better the third. it used to be that syfy was the only channel i watched so what is there now

October 27, 2011 at 6:21 pm
(1457) Bearkids says:

It was a shame to cancel SGU. It was darker than the rest, but so much more they could have done with it. They never really gave it much a chance. It was watched more on recorded DVR’s. Which proves they just needed to shift the show on different nights to capture a bigger audience. They never syndicated either. That would have helped also. I have virturely quit watching (except for specials) SyFy channel. Bring it back, run the reruns on different nights set up a 3rd & 4th season and give it a chance. I will buy more t-shirts cups!!!

(1459) Jordam says:

This is why AMC is a better station than syfy in my opinion.
AMC plays the shows that people actually want to watch and follow the story. SYFY just plays a lot of re-runs and AMC plays new showings allowing the none need of cancelling shows. SGU actually had great acting and an awesome story line to follow. It had a crew of an alien ship who had no idea what they were doing and trying to survive. It had lots of potential as a show and is now wasted. But yes hopefully they do pick up the show after another year or two; preferrably sooner.

(1460) Greg says:

Another real disappointment from syfi.
I knew there was a problem with this channel when they took up wrestling. Someone explain to me how wrestling has anything to do with science fiction.
The network has been becoming more and more disgusting over the last five years or so. It has been airing junk movie after junk movie of The Giant Snake genre etc. and remaking the oh so boring story over and over.
I guess the science fiction crowd will have to find another station that understands that intellect can be incorporated into a story line and still be intriguing and entertaining. It is obvious that the syfi channel has totally lost direction and it’s audience has degenerated into something you may find on the lowest end of late night movie shows (No those are even better).
At any rate… the way to get the message across to those bozo’s is to stop watching the channel. Cancel your subscription like I did and eventually, it will either go broke and some other channel will pick up the genre or they will finally get the message and start generating well written, intriguing, entertaining, quality content that people with a brain will gather to watch.
Nuff said?

I am heartbroken to be finally reading this, I thought that they were just dragging their heels releasing season 3. I realise that its all about the ratings, but who appreciated the works of the grand masters whilst they were still alive?! Having grown up as an avid viewer of the stargate franchise, the progression, or maturation of stargate universe, was compelling and exciting. I would often describe SGU to my friends as ‘Stargate for adults’. An untimely demise of a series that was destined to be great. Shame on you bean counters.

It is such a shame it was cancelled, it has a pretty big following down under here in Australia.
But let’s face it, I am sorry but what would a bunch of bean counting yanks know about scifi?
We in the commonwealth perfected scifi, just ask doctor who fans. Meanwhile these board room jack Asses (I think that’s how you guys say it) will always prefer Hulk Hogan in space fighting with bikini clad chicks, with story lines that would keep ‘porn watching living in their mothers basement computer playing wanna be’s’ hours of fun.
What a bloody shame and bugger!

(1469) Someone who's not impressed! says:

I missed it when it was on SyFy but have just watched it on Sky 2 and thought it was excellent! Finally a SG that’s got some serious actors and serious acting. We need to forget about SyFy and there stupid mistake, leave them with their crappy Warehouse 13 and Eureka. Lets just hope and pray that another station has the balls to revive the show!

(1470) EVERYONE says:

Everyone involved in this decision should be set on fire.
This show was the best thing Syfy (stupid re-brand by the way) has ever done, instead funneling money into making a Zombie movie with Ving (I’m already in a zombie movie) Rhames which was about as fun as eating a big bag of dicks, they should have continued SGU.
You all deserve the inevitable redundancy you are heading towards.

Tut Tut ! How did I guess, SGU really started to grow on me and I was starting to get high hopes, so, just thought I’d have a quick glance ‘into the future’ and ‘surprise surprise!’ it’s cancelled and due to join the rest of the great Sci-Fi programmes that didn’t quite ‘rack up the numbers’.

Truth is, I can take all the sly digs and mickey takes about me being a Sci-Fi fan, water off a ducks back, what I can’t take is the repeated cancellations, wish someone SOMEWHERE would get it sorted out.

(1477) Xmun says:

Yet another victim of the brain dead retards that watch television.

When are networks going to realize that most of the smarter viewers dont watch TV. They buy the DVD’s which is straight income to the network and this never enters their calculations when they cancel a series.

By the way “keeping up with the Kardashians just entered its FIFTH season.
Just to justify my earlier comment about brain dead retards.

(1478) Kelvin says:

Damn… I no longer own a television, but just watched this series on netflix and couldn’t stop watching it. Have been obsessed with it for that last few days and went through the whole thing. I really wish someone did pick up this series. It really had the best writing & story arc of any of the Stargate Series. It focused on character development as much as the cool scifi part of it. I became really quite invested in the characters, a lot more than I thought I would, considering I knew the eventual cancellation and that SG Atlantis disaster of the show. Had a much cooler concept, kind of a mix of Galactica and Lost. This really was a good show with good acting, sometimes you just have to roll the dice when you see a quality product with lower ratings. It just takes a little time for the return on investment to come sometimes. When the Battlestar Galactica remake was actually on the Sci Fi channel. No one I know would watch it with me. After the whole thing was done, people would come up to me, sometimes years later telling me the saw some of it got hook and bought all the DVDs, or rented them to watch it. If it’s a quality product it will eventually get sold. Unfortunately there’s a lot of crap on sci fi now, so it’s so hard for these guys to see the good stuff when it’s staring them straight in the face.

I agree sgu was a series that was getting really good and it seems that they did not give it a full run through the season 2 finale was good and left me wanting more . So were I see it is that they should bring it back but do a lil better on advertiseing it and then if it doesnt pick up good attention then cut it people never know but 3 times the charm I always say because the 3 season will most likely be hella good aand pickup more rateing so I hope they bring it back on any station ill watch it to the fullest

(1484) James says:

I can’t believe in this day of technology that a network can’t track the following of a show of other mediums such as Hulu or netflix. I had to watch that way because I worked when the show aired.

The cancellation of SGU , along with having wrestling on the Sci- fry (yes I mis-spelled on purpose) caused me to boycott watching any show from them.
The other thing about ratings. why would people want to continue watching after cancellation notice when it’s an investment that goes unrewarded. thus a drop in viewing?

Also mentioned was the “very small fan base” . Ever consider that for every fan that is visible there are probably 3 others that watch but don’t write about it online or elsewhere.

November 27, 2011 at 1:19 am
(1485) James says:

If you give me ten percent less than last year’s somewhat snoozy season’s budget, and give me one percent for my efforts, I’ll hand you an SGU so good that fans would quit their job’s to see. I know exactly what to do, how to do it and…I CAN. I can make SGU until episiode 200. Riots may break out when we (cast and crew) decide we’ reached the end of the road. The final episode won’t leave a dry eye in the house. SYFY exec’s; I know your decisions are made on many factors, but guy’s; you’re F…in’ up If you throw in the towel now! Call! what could you possibly loose. 600 5418. Filter out the nut jobs, I’ll send you my area code and a code sentence.

More than cancelation of serie, i hate when they leave it on a spot where it is kinda pointless. On universe, they left people just sleeping in pods, never being able to complete quest or return to earth… NWTF???

thats not a way to end a serie, at least, make a movie that explains what happened in the end, dont make a serie, but make at least ending to the serie!!! Even 3 episode lenght movie would explain how things ended.

what kind of storytelling you believe to have, and what kinda following are you going to get from sci-fi fans if producers get reputation that they cant even make a decent sci-fi serie with good story and ending??? As far as i can see it, i aint gonna even start watching new eart serie, because SyFy dont know how to make a good serie, and ends it prematurely… lets see, scientists enter portal to enter new planet to find dinosaurs, argue its existence and decide to bomb it with nukes, as they dont finally like it oh well, there goes the future of mankind… why? darn corporate decision.

SyFy is just like Cartoon Network, cutting out all the good stuff so they can take our money and give us programs that are basically the same S#it we see every day when we walk out the front door! Why bother watching if all that’s left to watch are shows that are less exciting than the pile of dog S#it I just slip in?

one last thing, by axing Caprica (I didn’t care for it but it is still a great show) and SGU SyFy has finally managed to rip out the nearly dead heart of the dieing beast that WAS the Sci-Fi channel.

(1494) jeff white says:

I loved the premise of the first Stargate movie decades ago, but was disappointed in where it went. I never saw SG-1. I watched and liked…and was also a bit embarrassed by, from time to time…SG Atlantis.

SG Universe is (was) a whole ‘nother ballgame…serious science fiction, taken seriously. I love everything about it…the dark, moody sets, the excellent acting, the surprisingly good writing, the realness of the scenarios, which are brought to semi-conclusions in the course of an hour, but are not forced into 45 minute plots that are neatly and falsely tied up at the end. This seems very real to me, very adult. I would put it up next to any drama–Shakespeare, anyone?–and not cringe in the least, which is very unusual for this genre, this medium. You just can’t do science fiction on TV, can you? Except that you can, as SGU has proven…though I guess you can’t for more than a couple of seasons.

It’s a shame that we can’t pursue excellence in the world…if you do something too well, it won’t appeal to the masses and get “ratings,” whatever those are. A damned shame. We had a chance to do something important, and we muffed it.

Now what annoys me more is that it is yet another show that is left in limbo and not knowing the outcome of the film ..
This shouldn’t be allowed to happen as what is the point of starting something and not letting it finish is ludicrous ..
Would you walk into a movie and expect it to finish half way though ..no

(1500) Don says:

SYFY channel a division of NBC Universal or GE & Comcast really are the fault! These two corporations are made up of mindless corporate types who only interest is HUGE profits and kissing ass of there peers. Cash & ego; plain and simple! This is the same mindless crew that cancelled Star Trek in the 1960′s! What these brainless bean counters don’t realize is that we are a culture. These shows were expanding the collective consciousness of those who watched, and that’s what was making North America great! One could easily argue that SYFY is destroying the genius of the N.A. people’s. It’s Treason plain and simple and a revolting Betrayal against our future.

SGU was(is) a great sequale to the original Stargate series. My family really enjoyed the story line and wish deeply that the crew will come out of stasis, once funding can be restablished, and once again entertain us all.

Time here in this realm is short… it was fun to watch :)

Hope time can find a way to bring this back.

(1503) DarrelX says:

I just loved SGU. It’s gritty, the Characters very human. After BSG, this filled the gap. I cannot believe that they canned the show. Something is wrong when good science fiction is axed. The series finished brilliantly though. I am confident that Eli would have fixed that stasis pod and awoke three years later. They say its quality not quantity. SGU proves that. Better 40 episodes of high quality Science fiction rather then seven years of lazer guns and space battles. SGU had depth. Great characters. Great evolving plot. The drone ships, a unique enemy. What a pity that the majority of Sci Fi fans are just looking for a quick fix, rather then strong character driven stories.

At least do a movie and let us know what happens to the crew and Eli. Need another Stargate series back on . Also what about Stargate Atlantis. You get us to watch the series for years then leave us cancelled.

(1507) Lord Galamushi says:

I am dissapointed to say the least. I just got done watching all SGU on netflix hoping their was the possiblity of more to come. I hope given some time another attempt will be made to finish this series. It was left off with a 3 year space in which the crew was to be in stasus, prehaps thats what the writers were hoping for is SGU to be continued with in 3 years. I can only hope. If not thank you SGU for the ride. It was worth the time to watch

January 2, 2012 at 12:15 pm

In my opinion SGU could return if the franchise can recapture the risqué approach that brought its predecessor SG1 to life.

I think the people who made the decision to cancel stargate universe live in silly land as they have no idea what the people really want and even worse then that they do not care.
was very disapp
I beleive that ALL STARGATE SERIES ARE believable and interesting . It is very dissappointing that SGU finished at season 2 and very interesting and that didn’t finish SGU off properly BEST show always cancelled?

(1511) David G says:

I have seen ALL the Star Trek Series, Stargate Series, & Babylon 5. SGU quickly became my favourite! It is a damn shame that SGU has been scrapped. Please resurrect the series! We all want to know what is at the centre of the universe. (-:

This is so sad. I have been watching the Stargate series since SG1…. every episode. I was so ecstatic about SGU, and now… after 14 years, such disappointment. I am truly saddened by this.

(1513) Ed says:

What the hell is wrong with the execs at syfy, the keep starting shows , be they good or not, then cancel them without finishing the story. That is unless the fans revolt then we get a mini movie to finish it off, and that’s if we’re lucky. Grow up syfy! How many people out there read three quarters of a book and say well I really like it but ill just read the clifnotes ending.

A few things i have observed in terms of pc memory is the fact there are technical specs such as SDRAM, DDR and so on, that must match the technical specs of the mother board. If the pc’s motherboard is fairly current and there are no main system issues, upgrading the memory space literally usually takes under a couple of hours. It’s among the list of easiest personal computer upgrade processes one can imagine. Thanks for spreading your ideas.

(1523) Randolph Holmes says:

Its a sad state of affairs when our intellects have devolved to the point where garbage like wrestling ousts a quality sci-fi drama such as SGU.

It took me some time to warm up to the show but as the characters grew on me I enjoyed and will miss it , although I do feel the look and darker edge, sets, and camera work for space fights was a bit of a steal from Battlestar Galactica.

It would be nice if they could find another network, who sees the potential scifi did not, that would pick up the series and finish the story line. I hate unfinished series. Reward fan loyalty and complete what you begin!

January 11, 2012 at 6:42 pm
(1524) Mike Thorman (UK) says:

I feel like I have been robbed at gun point. Sc-Fi was never a big seller, but at least SGU gave us the a New view on an old franchise. Will be missed. Now the can put some real junk back on like hanger 13 (what the hell was that show about any ways??!!!)

Its been awhile, but for those of you who are old enough this is exactly what happened to mtv. They stopped playing the videos e eryone liked and went to reality shows that sucked. Sgu was great, as was stargate atlantis. The characters were easy to like and I watched every week. Now I search for reruns because what’s current now blows. Get the hint syfy? Finish the story for sgu!

January 14, 2012 at 7:50 pm
(1531) Jay says:

It is a shame it was canceled after two seasons.

Starting off with the civilians and military at odds, finally coming together. The character development was great and building each series.

It failed due to the distance from the sg1 series. To be quite frank that’s what i liked, the best of stargate without the same slightly tweaked repetitive stories in the original. I only got part throu season 4 of sg1 before it got a bit rehashed to me.

Where as this introduced new concepts and new plotlines to stargate instead of rehasing the same overdone plotlines. It had so much potential to be took further. The thing that gripes me the most is the end with eli. Did he manage to survive or not.

This is the problem with syfy, they never give shows a chance, they just keep cutting them to try and get something better in. To be quite frank if the channel continues this kind of action shows are not gonna wanna allign with them anymore. Good ridence too i say. Bloody syfy is killing cult science fiction. Sign with them n guarentee a high fail chance.

January 15, 2012 at 2:02 pm
(1532) sagefay247 says:

Sy Fy why?

I latterly just got done watching season 2 of SGU (the best stargate ever!) on Netflix, home sick, watched it all over the past couple of days. Excited to find more I hoped online and started looking for season 3…..
WTF….. this is why I stopped paying for cable….. syfy you suck

This show has grit! I could sink into the story. learn about the people! and get a space Sy Fi show! Sy Fy must hate geeks with a brain, I do not have ADD but I think Sy Fi execubots must have us all pegged as having a 30 second attention span…I hate wrestling.

I’m very sorry they stopped to the final of the 2nd season. At first I don’t liked very much … But slowly they returned to show charm of STARGATE. It’s a good show, and I know he has at least 5 series but ….. if they haven’t so much money ….. That it’s …… maybe people from FOX will give us something better whit the new show Terra Nova.

January 20, 2012 at 10:38 pm
(1536) SCI FY GUY says:

SGU should be cancelled, and the writers of that series should stay out of sci-fi, period. I have been a space fanatic all my life, and this series reminded me of the melodramatic ‘Party of Five’ series. We want exploration, space battles, new life forms, get it? Sci Fi isn’t meant for the ho hum family style drama that we already mostly experience where we are now…..

January 21, 2012 at 10:01 pm
(1537) Stormer says:

I do not agree with the Cancellation but I do agree there needs to be more action and less Drama. There is a vast universe out there and you the writer is only looking at a small picture. It started great with SG1 and Atlantas but if you are going to leave us hanging on what Destiny was for then why even start something you can’t finish. I along with so many other fans have spent money on Stargate products just to have you cancel the series. Try asking your fans what they would like to see in the Upcoming series for some real insperation. Then maybe you will have some great reviews. Again out our little Galaxy you can not tell me we are the only life forms out there… Hope ya’ll take some advice into concideration. ASK THE FANS FOR HELP AND IDEAS TO KEEP SGU ALIVE!!!!!!!!!

January 22, 2012 at 8:12 pm
(1538) darren says:

was really disapointed by season 1, but felt they had really started to hit the mark in season 2. its a shame the accountants aren’t sci-fi fans maye those of us that are would see fewer of our favorite shows being cancelled

January 23, 2012 at 2:34 am
(1539) Vani says:

I also really hope that another channel picks SGU up. I can believe how it ended.

I also was not really into season 1 but season 2 really got me hooked!!

January 24, 2012 at 12:34 pm
(1540) Chumpish says:

It was a great past two weeks where I found SG-U on Netflix and couldn’t stop watching each episode. From someone who loved SG-1, never found interest in Atlantis, I found SG-U intriguing – the boredom of the ship, some additional aliens, finding your own familiy, discovering new capabilities of the ship, basic survival, etc. I finished Season 1 and 2, started looking for the current only to find it was cancelled. Getting tired of these great shows with fresh ideas being bumped. It was a great ride and huge let down. I wish there was more we could do.

PS: Even with its timeslot, with DVRs out there, I wonder if they were taking into account all those people who would watch the espiodes at a later time – just like I did.

I don’t care if you read this but here are the facts there are roughly over 307 million peaople in america this is somewere within 1600 comment i have a brother who also loves this series and a best freind that would sell his left nut still conected to his body for this show. so on average for every fan that rights a comment there about 8 people who they know that havent seen it/ would enjoy this series if they new it exsisted. so if 3 of them watched this series on tv,2 of them buy /rent the series and one of them illegally download this series,and the other watches netflix. (the cause of the shows cancelaation.) that that would be a 4/5ths of the american population easily so my proposition is if i can gather enough support (hard but worth it)would you re air this? please contact me through email I will do it if i have to suck every dick in fredericksburg varginia (im a guy don’t get fresh i want sgu back)

I hope that SGU will appear on our screens again. I don´t have SyFy chanel in Slovakia. So what. I watched every episode on internet. But yes in these times everything is about money and if there was not enought watchers when it was on TV SyFy just cancel the best SG series ever

January 30, 2012 at 10:15 am
(1549) j rimmer says:

Personally I am not surprised , yes maybe the acting was good and the production was also top notch but the reality is that too many writers of sci fi seem to think that modern sci fi needs to be all about character development and “deep” story lines but ultimately there has to be a balance . Battlestar Galactica showed how to get the balance right between character development and all out action but SGU was simply too slow moving and had no legitimate “baddies” in the series….unfortunately the writers thought that the SG “brandname” would give them time to develop this area…..they were wrong !!!!

February 1, 2012 at 9:28 pm
(1550) Peter S says:

Its a disappointment. I know the series started slow, but it has got going in the last episodes, and I think it could really do well now. I would like to see another one or 2 seasons at least.

February 2, 2012 at 8:56 pm
(1551) Greg Clark says:

It’s rare to find science fiction with the right blend of scientific plausibility, endearing characters, and drama emphasizing the human condition over the tired ‘good guys’ vs ‘bad guys’ conflict formula. I was delighted to find it in SGU and was swept up into a ‘catch up’ marathon recently. When I discovered that it had been cancelled without a chance to resolve the story line I felt cheated and sad.

Leaving this comment was the least I could do to show my admiration and pay respects to all who were involved in bringing it to life. Thank you.

May a chorus of devotees keep the hope alive.

February 3, 2012 at 1:23 am
(1552) Matthew says:

I am a big fan of the SGU series. SG1 was good but the storyline was erattic, SG Atlantis was better and the storyline was a bit more fluid, but they got it completly right with SGU, this has been the best of all the series and it is a DAMN (being polite) shame that it has been cancelled. Whoever made this decision should be hung and quartered.

February 4, 2012 at 10:20 pm

Stargate Universe was amazing! I just finished watching it on Netflix! I cried, A lot! I laughed, I got scared, but mostly I was just in awe of how amazing this show was! The effects were beautiful! Personally, I love space theme shows and movies! They are just so entertaining! And the actors! Wow! they blew me away! Not for one second while I was watching did I think it was fake! My most favorite Character is Eli Wallace played by David Blue. After one episode I was in love with him. And the last episode made me cry so much! Eli is the face for SGU! without him I wouldn’t have cared about this show so much! Im devastated that they cancelled it but I still have hope that it will come back somehow, and that when it does Eli will still be there, smiling! I was never a die hard fan of anything, but i think i became one of SGU without realizing it. It truly was, is, and will forever be one of the most amazing shows I have ever seen! and Im so thankful I stumbled across it! <3

February 8, 2012 at 8:49 pm
(1562) Mathieu says:

I think the best of three series. there was not much action as its predecessors but a psychology of the characters really interesting. I was excited about this series after the cancellation of “defying gravity” in 2009 which was a series dedicated to the success as well. I’m really disappointed with the cancellation of another series with a good story, much more than “warehouse 13″. and much better actors than “merlin”.

selon moi la meilleur des trois séries. il n’y avait pas autant d’action que ses prédécesseurs mais une psychologie des personnages vraiment intéressante. j’était heureux de cette série après l’annulation de “defying gravity” en 2009 qui était une série vouée au succès elle aussi. je suis vraiment déçu de l’annulation d’une autre série avec une bonne histoire, beaucoup plus que “warehouse 13″. et de bien meilleurs acteurs que “merlin”.

Ah man I just watched the whole series on Netflix and hoped online to see when the next season is going to be on and WHAT!!!!! its canceled? They kept Wharehouse 13 and canned SGU!!!!! That is the best Stargate series I have ever seen!! The story line behind the characters made me want them to make it and come back to Destiny alive. I looked forward in every episode to how the crew would work through every problem that came their way. To see it canceled is such a …. its awful that it won’t be back. All of it the series was amazing!! Even the music picked at the end of certain episodes. simply the best BEST series ever. It beat Battlestar out of the universe! They were always fighting the same enemy but SGU had all types of enemies or allies and you never knew what they were going to come in contact with each gate jump… Man I am so bummed its not coming back. I finally had found the best series and now…. now its over…..

February 9, 2012 at 2:12 am
(1564) tomas says:

SGU was a great concept but it failed.
It was not true Science Fiction, it was a Soap Opera / Chick Flick.
It should have been aired on Lifetime or Hallmark.
Loved SG1 and Atlantis and was so hopeful about SGU but
with 1% action and 99% love stories and relationships ,
it truly FAILED as Sci-Fi.
Good riddance.

Bring back Farscape and/or Babylon 5.
Let Bill Mumy remake Lost in Space.

(1565) rayza says:

maybe if syfy ppls would read all those and think a bit…they would see the true potential of SGU and they would give it a bit more atention for…
my opinion is that SGU is better that SGA beacause on SGU characters are evolving(allmost all) and on SGA most of the characters had same straight line role…to defend the earth from wraith menance…that was all SGA story line…by all means i don’t say that SGA wasn’t a nice chapter of SG story but…SGU gives a new horisont to SG…

In retrospect, I followed sg-1, atlantis, and universe up to the end. For years, I stayed interested and the series gets cancelled. Seriously?????!!!!!!! I have waited to see if maybe universe would be reinstated. Now it’s time for sacrifice. I will not be watching the sic-fi channel until universe is brought back and may the ratings on all other sci fi shows suffer because there are many who feel the same as I.

(1574) Roger Landa says:

This is one of the best SG series I have watched and was expecting it to continue to evolve into a storyline that challenges the human perception of being insignificant in the Universe. Whoever decided that it was a good idea to Ax the series is a complete idiot and should never work in the field again. Dumb and Dumber in charge of Syfy programming in my opinion.

(1575) Kyle Flanders says:

I know that you canceled the show a long time ago but all I’m saying is… you can’t just end it like that! does Elie Wallace fix the stasis pod? Does destiny complete its mission? Please at least give me a TV series movie properly ending the show…. like you guys did for Stargate Atlantis?
I personally thought it was the best Stargate series so far…..
Stargate universe was definitely better than sanctuary,Eureka , whatever other sci-fi shows that suck

(1578) Ryan says:

You have to look at this in a different light, I think sci-fi will be loosing a personal favorite to me. But i can understand why it was lost to us in the first place it all comes down to business, think about it this way in real life johnny gets $1000 his food costs him $200 his car $500 rent $200 and electricity $200 total expenditure $1100 he is is living out of his means. so in-order to fix this he has to make changes, SGU was living well out its means, it just didn’t have the fan base to start it off and this can due to a fracturing fan base or just because it didn’t sell good to begin with but in-order for any series to work it needs money to survive. I’d prefer to think of this not as a loss but as a tactical retreat maybe in the future they will re-open the series when the fanbase has matured and realized the pottential.

SGU was the best of all the series, i think. What a waste it was for me to watch the first 2 seasons just to learn that it will end in the middle and prolly the very best part. Its like ending your first meal after being stranded for 2 days without food or water…. im giving up on syfy.

I can’t believe this crap.. Why in the fk does everyone cancel anything good, anything that takes a bit of brain power to follow? Ratings or not, you would think some people could take pride in their work and honestly finish what they started. As if they don’t make enough money? How about you advertise better to give viewers a chance to find the damn series. Honestly, hardly anyone I know even has Scifi.

Its a shame that sgu got cancelled, i thought the first series was a bit slow to get off and then when the second series came in it got alot better shame they left on a cliff hanger now really i mean suspended animation we never know what happens to them maybe they drift there and 1,000 uyears later
shame really i hope they can end the show either wioth one more series or a movie just to finish it off

Wow! Years of postings. As I read the post, I feel the emptiness and sadness of space. As a father, with children I have enjoyed great sci-fi shows with my children in thieir devoloping years. And unbeknownst why, have lost most of them. When Parents and children actively share in a common interest that reqiure sacrificing schedules and activities to allow watching the program in a family setting can only be good. To those that question the writers ablities to continue the furture story line.
Well let me see. We have an uncontrollable, unexplored ship of unknown advanced technology ever traveling to scheduled unknown destinations. The occupants of which are learning, adapting, exploring and being subjected to whatever the viewers could themselve immagine in every episode. I can only say, the SG’s were the only interest I have had in NBC. We can research NBC and those that administer NBC and those that suport NBC and we shall find all answers to all the above and below questions. Expecially those questions challenging and questioning compentance and story content. Look at NBC’S ratings OVERALL and we can understand the ineptness of the decisions overall. In hind sight, I remember back in 1985 carrying a suitcase size Compaq computer. A u
nheard of size in 1977. and now it fits in my shirt pocket. Why not light sabers, warp engines, force fields, airscruber(that and use 2 kilos of activator) and the like of imaginations. Thanks and only the best.

I have just came across the 2 seasons on netflix and I am addicted. in 4 days I finished both seasons , just to find out there is no more. I am truly let down. I thought the acting was amazing! Also the story line was deep and intense. I think if the human race now was put in the same situation as the Crew of Destiny it would be about the same thing. A lot of internal struggles. I wish someone would pick this up I want to see more!

When are you going to put some actual science fiction on????? I believe vampires and werewolve shows come under horror/fantasy, not science fiction!! I used to enjoy sci-fi channel, but it should now be called the” Fake wrestling channel”!! Anyone that believes these “Matches ” are real, needs to have their head examined.These shows are an insult to our intelligence! It’s too bad, as sci-fi channel used to be my fav channel,but anymore ,it sucks and I watch history channel instead! In general, cable programming has gone down the toilet,and for the amount of money I pay for it Ii am about ready to cancel it! They should rename it as “Brain-Dead Channel”!, like most of the rest of cable programming! What a shame!

(1600) simeon says:

SGU – syfi fans can only be as dissapointed as I am that the show has been cancelled only after 2 thrilling seasons (it was ALWAYS about the stargate, nothing changed from orignal SG1 series, thats what made the show so awesome) it had such potential to be a real winner. SG1 had many episodes that were lame, no real story same old thing but Stargate travel is what made the show a hit, Atlantis yeah it took sometime to get into it but when season 5 was over we were all left to wait for SGU, what a shame is all I can say. Robert Carlyle made the series/storyline what is was, I could understand if he had quit the show, gone are the days of real syfi, only chicks watch the vamps! Macgyver you are still the OG of SG.

Lucky we still have Dexter Morgan!!!

March 13, 2012 at 5:50 pm
(1601) Alberto says:

There are a lot of rumours about a retake of sg franchise, two stargate films are waiting to be filmed and I think that the development of a new videogame for PS3 or sth like that would be a great idea… You people know that a lot of videogames about space and aliens have been successfully released.. Stargate has the perfect plot and I’m sure that people would like it.

This is very disappointing not to have more season of SGU….I think by the end of 2nd season it just started to pick up…..and Syfy axed them…………….

I must appreciate the team of SGU for coming up with the concept , story and the show.

I just recently found out about SGU and, as impossible as it may seem, I have watched both seasons is under a week. The story is great, the characters are great, the idea and development is great … basically the entire two seasons of SGU are great. Why stop this and continue with Eureka or any other such shows? Maybe there are a lost of people who simply like closure in each episode but this, with all due respect, means having a very limited perspective and a very narrow mind. SGU is unlike the other SG series and this is exactly what makes it not just unique but also an attraction (and I am a fan of all SG series). Hope the seasons will continue, somewhere else if SyFy does not have the guts to continue them.

March 28, 2012 at 10:32 pm
(1611) maszsam says:

Lets get real. Season one killed the show. What episode was it when they were on the planet where the flying worm things were eating though them? A lot of the crew were killed off. The next episode they just played it off like it never happened. Dead people were back and no explanation. Excuse me?

It also moved to slow. How do you make a sale… let me think… oh yeah hook’em and book’em. This show really fizzeled over the first season. Let everyone off the hook.

Also the characters had horrible inconsistencies. In real life the commander of a ship doesn’t leave it while deployed except to meet with other leaders especially in crisis mode.. Also they don’t get into fist fights. Very un-military.

Various other characters did not act right either. Other than someone freaking out in a crisis, most people come together in a pinch, they do not start a brawl or instantly splint into factions.

Other technical items included people being shot and getting a band aid on it and in fifteen minutes they were back up and running around. People getting beat to hell, cut and bleeding but never any scars and my personal favorite, a kidney transplant done with out masks by a paramedic with out organ rejection suppression drugs from the front????. Yeah sure.

Other items were things like weapons just lying around on tables meaning that they did hit a bump they would be all over the room.

What about the drones that could follow you at FTL speeds but all you had to do is hid behind a desk and they couldn’t see you. Police helicopters right now have better technology.
Pretty weak.

Don’t get me wrong, even if with all the dumb ass stuff in it, I really liked the show and the writing was getting better. Still, if I was in charge and had read the scripts for the first season, I would have red flagged it. I’m not sure how they could screw up so bad, as I know they have a story book plot line. What were they thinking?

Thought this series was great and a welcome departure from the “formula” SG-1 that was getting stale on its own. Yes, the writing was improving and becoming more and more enticing. SciFy channel has got some serious “corporate hacks” up its butt to cancel two excellent shows like Eureka and SGU.

April 1, 2012 at 1:48 am
(1614) pickredpil says:

I never started watching this one because I know NBC and SciFi have a bad reputation for cheating their viewers. I loved stargate SG1 and was very happy with Atlantis. But when they left us all hangging on Atlantis and couldn’t even do the dvd movie I realized watching their programs is a waste of my time and I won’t bother again. So minus 1 from their ratings forever…. ;-)

Yes the demise of SGU is a massive disappointment to fans of intelligent Sc Fi. This series had everything. Beautiful production, gorgeous sets, great acting, brilliant writing & a storyline which conveyed a true sense of wonder. I recall my absolute astonishment on discovering just how good SGU was while watching the first episode. From the sense of mystery evoked by Destiny’s ancient interior to the sheer imensity of the storyline – this show was sheer genius. Oh well, I suppose it’s gone the way of Fringe, The Event & Fastforward. Or just about any thought provoking show. Bring on the fat camp reality shows & purile talent quests…

Hah, read about the shows they decided to move forward with: Alphas (lame Heroes/Wanted ripoff), Being Human (lame bandwagon vamp movie), Blood & Chrome (canceled, actually was looking forward to this), Warehouse 13 (sorry, but nothing beats X-Files), and Eureka (looks fun, but I don’t watch it).

Bottom line, this was and will forever be one of the worst decisions this network has ever made. Look what their channel is pushing now (from their website): Ghost Hunters (the internet meme for this show just cracks me up), Lost Girl (a rip-off of Alias which is already a rip-off of The Bourne Identity), and Fact of Faked (Ghost Hunters, a show which already sucks, mixed with Mythbusters).

I wish this network would stand up and have some real integrity for putting out quality. A crappy show that is popular is still crappy.

(1634) Ex Syfy viewer says:

SGU was the only decent show Syfy had going for it. Amazingly poor decision on their part to cancel SGU. The series felt like a marathon space opera with a great pool of talent to draw on but was cancelled before it even got started. I can’t believe what Syfy has decided to air instead of SGU. I feel like I’m watching the US car manufacturers sink the auto industry again, only this is the Syfy version sinking our scifi entertainment chanel by making painfully inept choices on our behalf by taking away good shows and airing brain dead garbage in its place. Wake up!

First scifi show I got into, I actually liked it. Then they go ahead and cancel it. This show has way more potential than Star Trek, that show use to bore me to death. I remember when Star Trek reruns started at 11pm and I never had cable, I would decide sleep was the only option.

There is much history in these stories, don’t let that end here !

(1641) Stonkmer says:

Is it not obvious to the channel (I’m guessing it’s still SYFI) with the rights to the SG franchise have the inability to spell let alone read or downy intellectual reading…

It would appear that since December 20, 2010, that people have been (and still are) trying to get the message across that the intellectual Science Fiction (“SCI – FI”) fan base really did like this show..

I personally do not have “Sky TV” (UK) as I do not have time to watch that much to justify the overpriced drivel that is on it 90% of the time, however after watching (and growing up with) the Stargate film and subsequent Stargate TV shows (SG1, SGA and finally SGU), I would have to say I loved them all. They all had their individual “thing” about them.

Watching SGU, It did start of a bit slow but from the start you could see the great potential to where it was going. It was fresh, good acting and without even realising it.. You were hooked in and wanted more.
Sure, it was not Action packed fast moving action all of the time, but that’s where the intellectual side of your brain had a good workout and got you involved with a story….

As someone who does not watch all that much TV, as it has been mentioned previously in this discussion forum, the internet and “on-demand” services are starting to become the norm and “normal scheduling” statistics can not be used anymore to justify axing good shows…

I think I may have ranted on a bit too much So I shall simple end by asking any people who work in the media industry… If you are listing (or reading), Revive SGU as it has got the potential to grow into something big!!!

I was aprehensive to watch SGU as I was a huge fan of SG-1. But I gave Atlantis a go and loved it, then a couple of weeks ago I finally decided to start SGU. Exhilarating start and engaging characters made it an amazing show, but alas once again good shows get cancelled.

I hate sci-fi for this. this was the best damn SG series yet. BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!!!!. you guys are a bunch dumbasses for not keeping the show.

(1645) michael white says:

you complete wan***s. i will never watch any of your shows again. if your are stupid enough not to bring back SGU then you don’t deserve to be on the air at all. i would fill this line with a lot of bad names to call your staff but i really don’t think there is enough words in the world to say what you sre. SCREW YOU SYFY, YOU SUCK ARSE.

April 26, 2012 at 10:25 am
(1646) Rod Murkin says:

I would pay more then my fair share to bring it back.
I even have a funding budget idea…
Take the money out of reality TV, day time soaps,night time soaps,Jerry Springer,, un-current affairs programs ( i like my frozen vege’s) and all the other brainless wash. Then buy a huge rubber fist, painfully Invade the rectum of TV programmers. Then with the money left over fund SGU for years.
Thank you for reading this.

SGU must continue!!! I love SGU
Have been a loyal fan of Stargate since the first movie and episodes and seen all the episodes 2-3 times !
When they announced that SGU will be cancelled then I stopped watching SyFy!. That is BS…. they left crap shows and canceled the good ones…

Really hope that they will bring SGU back soon!

April 29, 2012 at 4:00 pm
(1648) lovenatalya says:

LAME!!!! SGU was the best SG series it had a real storyline and characters you grew with. SYFY is so lame I feel like a part of me has been launched into deep space. This is almost as bad as when Flashforward was cancelled.
DAMN!!! why do the good shows die young?! :(

April 29, 2012 at 5:27 pm
(1649) arvid says:

After all, one must have a hope… I have seen all kinds of trash on syfy and I just simply can’t believe what some decision makers inside the syfy are capable of… No words to describe now-days manager’s ignorance… SGU was intensive, promising very genuine show, yet some so called shows such as Being human, and there is a lengthy list of similar crap on the air that is being served to us money we pay. I just cant, but not to wonder, what kind of viewers do we have now days… SGU, I sincerely hope, will be picked up by someone who is smart and knows how to make fans happy and at the same time make tons of money. People in syfy made a mistake of a century they had this opportunity and I hope that there will be no more for them unless they start using heads instead of (usual bad words) pardon my french… SGU will continue no doubt about that it is this other crap, that occupy time on the air really makes me sad. TO SGU my friends cheers…

(1650) seliouk84 says:

hey i’ve never felt the need in my life to leave comment regarding shows, but when this was aired in the uk i thought it was a top show, much more intense and easy to get sucked in. really gutted that syfi cancelled the show and have continued with programs such as warehouse 13 graphics are poor, sorry lines are the usual (find something, put it in a large cupboard and save a life :s) come on at least SGU went away from the usual tv show crap and effort was put into it.

lets put it this way they cancelled the original star trek for the same reason back in the day and years later its become one of the coolest sifi’s ever! (for some) lets hope SGU doesnt take that long and the network that does promotes and broadcasts it correctly (should numbers be involved)

May 2, 2012 at 6:08 am
(1651) Shawn says:

I often find myself wondering if there is a way of saving SGU. one of the ideals that crossed my mind was, a fan funded system where everyone donates. but im not even sure if that’s possible. and in doing so (if it’s possible) may cause a chain of events that may not be nice.

May 2, 2012 at 2:55 pm
(1652) Markosolo says:

Such a pity that they cancelled it. I only watch a handful of programmes here in the uk and this was pretty good. Most tv is utter rubbish and this was one bright element.

May 2, 2012 at 2:57 pm
(1653) riderpeaks says:

It is such ashame that the three best science fiction tv shows have now come to an end. From SG-1 with its amazing storylines, amazing science and in-show history to atlantises extreme amount of science filled conversations that had me constantly fascinated to see what else they might find that always bordered upon potentially realistic, to SG-U, in my opinion the best of the three as it offered the most realistic idea of humans getting involved with alien technology passed on to them by the alterans.

Scy Fy, should find them selves with at least one less viewer from now on as their clear lack of loyalty to their brilliant writing partners shows blatnetly.

On an alternate note, as these shows have been axed, we can clearly show a biased for money as opposed to quality as shows like V were allowed to even air, along with the pathetic battlestar galatica, warehouse 13 and the long drawn out Eurka (whch seriously, SCIENCE FICTION, not happy family evening meal time tv).

Get on it Sy Fy, bring back the brilliants.

May 6, 2012 at 4:28 pm
(1654) janus says:

everytime syfy gets a great tv show when its about to enter its epicness/prime they cut like they did to farscape and stuff but like warehouse 13 when it gets crap its kept ftw people!

(1655) janus says:

everytime syfy gets a great tv show when its about to enter its epicness/prime they cut like they did to farscape and stuff but like warehouse 13 when it gets crap its kept ftw people! also syfy is ment to be bot sci fi stuff not two men in leatards hiting each other heres an i idea syfy axe the wrestling and reanimate the stargate

May 6, 2012 at 4:37 pm
(1656) janus says:

hey the sci fi channels is a about aliens and monsters and werid stuff not two men in leotards hitting each other repeatedly heres an idea axe the wrestling and un-bury the stargate for f*** sake

May 6, 2012 at 8:46 pm
(1657) Joseph says:

I can’t believe people are still leaving comments after a year and 5 months. You really are a dedicated fan base.

I just finished watching both seasons on Netflix and must say that I want more! The characters, for me, were only just beginning to develop but I found a perfect balance between sci fi action and drama. Bring it back.

May 6, 2012 at 11:52 pm
(1658) sam says:

MEL your the biggest, i cant think of a word they would let me say on here to express my complete disappointment in your life; ‘STU having more potential than star trek’ lol, not a chance, every sci fi is based from star trek, if it wasn’t for that show star gate wouldn’t of come about., i cant believe how stupid you are

May 7, 2012 at 8:02 am
(1659) ezza says:

Its a shame that SGU has been canceled i have watched SG1 and Atlantis form the start. i was only a kid when SG-1 came out and i have watch all the episodes. I anticipate and hope they bring back the SGU as i would like to see how it ends.

May 8, 2012 at 12:08 pm

(1663) Matt S says:

Bring back SGU! To cancel it is a major fail on the part of “Sy-Fy” where its remaining shows on a channel thats supposedly science fiction make about as much sense as playing the A team on the Food Network Channel! Wheres the sense of loyalty when the one quality show they have left is the one they choose to axe. MORONS

May 11, 2012 at 6:03 pm
(1664) jayleeds25 says:

please please please make series 3. i can not beleive this wonderful and entertaining programme has been axed.
i dont think i can cope without seeing Lt johansen again.(she is fit).
but on a serious note its left with eli looking out to space while everyone else has been frozen till destany reaches the next galaxy. and what about johansens disease? do they find a cure? i could go on all day. i want to know what happens. total descrace that this has been axed.

Not very smart… **** dummys stops SGU, the best SYFY show ever to be played… The man resposbile for the end of the show should drop DeaD.. He has no clue what shows are good..

(1666) Alex says:

That’s such a waiste of potential SGU was awesome show and SG itself.
The idea of space traveling will always be a tempting for the people

love Stargate universe my favourite of all the sci fi shows,the actors play their characters in a very believable manner,story line is interesting,tremendous scope to take this show anywhere,i’m sick to death of all these crap reality shows,can’t believe they dropped this,get some more normal viewers to review T V shows,

May 14, 2012 at 5:11 am

(1670) matthew says:

Time and time again scifi has proven they are dumb morons all the good shows get cancelled and all the terrible ones left, maybe these shows are slow to take off for a reason usually the good stuff takes awhi;le to be appretiated. warehouse 13 terrible, sanctuary terrible all the scifi shows are terrible, good shows all canceled scifi channel go make ya money of the sh*t shows and do somthing worth while by funding good shows like sgu if you give it time i recon sgu will make you money as thats all you care about i hope you goto the heaven ware you have to pay for everything!

May 15, 2012 at 8:18 am
(1671) Sue says:

Just watched the last episode and I feel cheated that we will never know what happened. My daughter and I have been glued to the TV over the two seasons shown. There are very few programmes on the television which I can say I have followed with such eager interest as this, and I do not understand what the programme makers are thinking of. There is a lot of potential in the story line and I am very sure if they decide to bite the buttet and make another series, it would have a good following. Please please let us know what happened.

May 17, 2012 at 4:46 am
(1672) mark says:

I can handle an unanswered question or two at the last episode of a show, or if the show is cancelled — I can live with a quick wrap up. However, SGU made me want to rip my hair out. SGU made a risky call tying into the emotional aspect of the characters (rather than cheeky one liners and whimsical indifference — like in SG1 and Atlantis), but I think they really had something going. I was at least hoping for a movie or a recap episode to have some closure…….

May 20, 2012 at 8:30 pm
(1673) Nick says:

I am a big Sci-Fi nut and i think this was the best series by far. I think it is better than SG-1 and Atlantis. It’s too bad this show couldn’t have new episodes now. TV right now has sucked for 2-3 months. If it played now, I bet it would be off the charts!

May 21, 2012 at 11:58 am
(1674) Bruce says:

I agree with some that can’t believe they’re renewing warehouse 13 an not SGU. I can hardly watch warehouse 13 the writing is so bad. SGU has better writing and production then all of the others combined.

PLEASE bring it back.

May 22, 2012 at 12:13 am
(1675) MC says:

Why not make a Stargate show of the Ancients and how the Stargates came to be………….? That could be cool, it could talk about the Ancient’s struggle and how a lot of things actually came to be, like Atlantis. idk……….just my opinion…..thought it would be cool.

May 23, 2012 at 9:36 pm
(1676) Rachel Watkins says:

I just finished watching the series over the last several weeks through Netflix, and was all ready to see what happened after they wake up from three years in stasis, and searched once there wasn’t a “next episode” button to click and found this. Dangit, it figures. A good series that was just gaining momentum. I hope they can pick it up again.

May 27, 2012 at 10:11 pm
(1677) David Pennington says:

Really thought SG1, etc., brilliant.
I’m sure seen all, but just wonder if the `aliens met’ in SG1, that do a few episodes to piece together what the Ancients looked like, food & drink, other….. Must have some Art & Craft, toys for the young…

All the best

May 30, 2012 at 3:12 pm
(1681) Nico says:

Well, after all crap that I passed in my life, I found SGU and actually had something to look forward to everytime I could get my hands on an episode. Can I tell you something Syfy? You just f’ed up everything. F*** you SYFY and the people that got this show dropped.

May 30, 2012 at 8:02 pm
(1682) Sue says:

I live in the country and just got hooked up to a suitable internet to run Net Flix for 1st time. I just concluded all 40 episodes of SGU and was shocked to learn it was cancelled. I want to see what happens next. Please consider bringing it to a better conclusion. You can continue another season or just make a movie or two to conclude it better..

June 3, 2012 at 8:15 am
(1683) sean clapham says:

since the start of stargate i have watched every episode right up till the end off the second series off sg-u i went to find out at the local block busters dvd store if there was a 3rd seson but thay had no idea so i started to investigate on line and found a few pages like this one that it had been stoped???
all these series have been great right to the end of sg-u series 2 where it was just flying off into space for the next 3 years but if that is going to be the end off it all there is no real ending what happens to the crew… that really sucks a@#…
will thay continue the series or atleast some one take it on and finish it or has it been left to die it the cold vacume of space like the crew of destiny???

June 4, 2012 at 8:13 am
(1684) Nex says:

Well since syfy have now dropped SGU, hopefully a more main steam channel like sky1 maybe able to pick up where they left off. We have all seen channels do it before to other programs so why not this. with a bigger more common channel the fan base could be many more times the size, stop making fans watch it online cause they don’t have the channel or downloading them cause they don’t have the channel. Its just common sense. Its syfy’s fault though for keeping there channel on a stupid system that’s allows only a small number of people to get it. drop there prices a little so sky can add it to there lower budget bundles = More viewers higher number = MORE money. It doesn’t take a scientist to come up with these solutions, they need to fire there big wigs in charge and get sum normal humans working for them, preferably some that have a brain to think with.

June 4, 2012 at 8:54 pm
(1685) Fifty Shades says:

Hey wow 1684 comments? This is an extremely impressive amount of comments about this show, most of them saying they want the show back. Times that by at least 10, because guaranteed only 1 in 10 or 1 in 20 people that read actually leave a comment, so you have, what, 16 or 17,000 people, anyways a lot of people searching for the 3rd season of Stargate Universe! So PLEASE BRING BACK STARGATE UNIVERSE and do not change it or make it corny or bad props and obviously fake action scenes like the SG-1 and Atlantis, like some of these commenters say they want.

June 7, 2012 at 8:05 pm
(1686) orion says:

Just summarizing… Majority of the fans would love to have a third season. Yet the corporate mongers decided that niche viewers are yet just a cost analysis portion that don’t provide a beneficial proponent. Time and time again, I have seen shows canceled for the same reason, “cost benefit”, and the same unsound reasoning prevails. For once, could you just forget about the money and respect the viewers. Finish the season and you’ll have your demographic back to support the show. Considering that the show ended on a 3 year journey… I’d suggest that you pick it back up in that time frame (in real life). This not only will instill a real-time scenario, it will also allow for a new (targeted) demographic, possibly encouraging more viewers. This story isn’t over and has great potential, to consider this proposal will save, well… all the lives on Destiny. Col. Everett Young – “It was never about going home. It’s about getting us to where we’re going. That… is… the mission.”

June 10, 2012 at 10:42 pm
(1687) Dave says:

Typical of movie producers these days, if the series doesn’t make 1 million dollars profit, axe it. This accounts for the current dry season of sci-fi at the moment (atm). I’ve seen only 2 sci-fi movies worth of any mention to date this year. I was expecting to see up to season 10 SGU at least. What do viewers get, season 2, limp d@#ks. It took Star Trek original fans 10 years of badgering to get The Motion Picture http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079945/.

June 11, 2012 at 12:43 am
(1688) Alorra says:

This is the reason we no longer have cable or satellite television. Networks give up on their shows far too easily. Give them a chance. Heck, with DVR most people don’t care what time it comes on anymore, show it at 3:00am. Or, here’s an idea….at least finish the darn storyline. Give the loyal viewers something to walk away from rather than leaving us in the lurch.

June 14, 2012 at 6:41 pm
(1689) Pablo says:

I’m sorry to disagree with most of you, but the kino’s waste of time and the soft dramas that slowed a lot the action and the adventure sometimes got to my nerves. Also, the attacks on a super-spacecraft, that was always begging for help, the sparks Star Trek-style and all the pseudo-scientific babling tired me half of the time. SG 1 and SG Atlantis were way superior to Universe, and that’s the main reason why it was canceled. If you want excellent acting, and mother-son, lesbian-to-lesbian drama, just go and watch the Oscar nominations.
Science-fiction is something else …

June 14, 2012 at 8:23 pm
(1690) Bobby says:

Pablo, you know nothing. Go back to the jungle. I agree with the guy just above Pablo though. Media isn’t something that can be measured well anymore. It’s not based on who’s watching when it airs. I mean come on! I watch everything on my cell phone or tablet after it airs. Just because I don’t watch it when it airs, doesn’t mean that it’s any less intriguing or engaging. In a last word, all great syfy shows have been shot down in the dust and left there to rot.

RIP Stargate, you have made my adolescent years worth remembering.

June 15, 2012 at 9:45 am
(1691) Fan from Romania says:

To bad the series wont be continued, hope that in the future SGU will be reopened and the series will continue hopely with same actors.
Personal i like all the things the SGU has brought to the public, a good Sci-Fi show with many things that captures a viewer imagination.

June 15, 2012 at 11:26 pm
(1692) SYFY fan says:

Could they make a 90min made for TV SGU movie to sum up the series? I know that this has been done with great shows that unfortunately didn’t survive very long, most notably Firefly with the movie Serenity.

PS. Great shows like this get cancelled and SpongeBob gets 500 episodes!!! whats up with that.

(1693) Sirloin says:

I watched all the episodes of stargate universe out there in 3 days. It saddens me that it was cancelled. I loved it’s slow progression and character developement.

It is my absolute worst when a great and enjoyable idea leaves this planet without conclusion.

SG-U deserves a place in this world. It should be brought back.

South Africa FTW.

June 19, 2012 at 5:23 pm
(1697) annoyedfan says:

Michael you can watch the rest of season 2 on amazon instant video. Way back on comment seventeen, or somewhere around there, when someone mentioned defying gravity i was so mad when i heard it was cancelled. So many good T.V. shows i like are cancelled because of greedy corporate level decisions.

June 25, 2012 at 6:09 pm
(1698) Fredriik says:

It is indeed a great tragedy that SGU wont continue.
After all it is this show humans would die for in reality a vehicle and sail out to the universe to explore, like what’s behind that planet and beyond.
I have recorded every episde of all 3 shows and when the last was aired i almost cried and still almost do when i feel like watching some of them again!
The hunger for more new episodes cant be filled with semishows that pops up these days :-(
I will continue to breathe hope.

(1702) chrono says:

well they did say that it would take 3 yrs to get through the void between galaxys maby they’re just makeing suspence for the next seasons (hope i’m wrong and they’re bringing it back sooner, if i am right then i’ll need a stasis chamber) hope they bring in a new seires.

also how is the destiny not showing the doppler effect and since they’re going close to the speed of light how is it that they’re not experiencing time dialation effect.

couldn’t they slow down the ftl drives to go .999 the speed of light (like in SGA in the return part 1) couldn’t they just do that and slow down time for themselves so they can wait untill earth can develop the tecnology to catch up to them and get back home.

July 3, 2012 at 3:24 pm
(1703) Arthur says:

It sucks SyFy does not want to continue the Stargate Universe series. I have been with SyFy from the very first episode of SG1. I was waiting patiently for SGU’s return and now I wait no more. Everyone who loves this show, as I do, should write to Net Flix and tell them to pick up the show. They have been talking about making movies for Net Flix ONLY. This would be a great first project for them. I am gonna write them next.

I have to say, i just watched the first two seasons of SGU on Netflix and i have to say that SGU is an awesome addition to the whole Stargate series, and what a shame that Sifi didn’t see fit to continue it. I must say that i was a BIG stargate fan but i did loose a bit of interest when Stargate Atlantis came out, it just was not my cup of tea. How ever i do wish that Sifi would finish the SGU series and have faith that we Sifi heads would in fact watch and fallow the series to the end.

July 12, 2012 at 2:11 pm
(1708) Steve says:

SGU has been one of the best seasons I’ve watched for a long time, and I’ve seen all the good ones which got axed.

Everytime SciFi brings out another series or something good, I always have to wonder if its worth the time to watch, because EVERYTHING good that they air ALWAYS gets cancelled.

I hope they eventually get replaced, it’s total bulls#*t they keep cancelling all the good shows.


July 12, 2012 at 2:14 pm
(1709) James says:


This just started being aired here in Australia, the entire family is HOOKED!

Please please please dont let this be true.


Stargate Universe has been one of the grestest shows we have seen in a very long time. We’re all hooked!!

July 12, 2012 at 2:22 pm
(1710) Stephen says:

If this series does get cancelled I’ll be cancelling my SciFi service.

Everytime they bring out a good season they have it out for one season or so, just neough to get people hooked, then they cancel it. So why bother getting into things in the first place.

Heroes, Prisonbreak, now Stargate Universe.

You’re on a roll guys, why don’t you cancel some of the BS shows and stop worrying about your damn pockets.

July 13, 2012 at 11:13 am
(1711) George says:

I am very disappointed….

I discovered SGU on Netflix and thought I would only watch a couple episodes, mostly because of my experience w/ Stargate Atlantis (which was a big disappointment).

12 episodes I was hooked…I finished all 40 episodes and started talking about it, when someone informed me that the show was cancelled.

I would love nothing better than if SyFy picked it up again…or even Showtime. It would definitely develop a following with the right marketing on the other NBC outlets and same writers. Ratings would spike, especially after a long siesta.

Well sence the cancellation of stu i found myself never watching syfy and have the feeling of watching a new episode its depressing that u guys cancelled my favorit show. i didint like the other ones but this SGU i thought was the best. but what ever syfy. well good luck with your low budget shows.

The only way I could watch it was with DVDs from Netflix. I recently had major knee surgery and wanted to get into SGU during my down time (my wife isn’t a sci-fi fan). Great story line, excellent and engaging acting, superb special effects, What a disappointment from a passionate fan.

I hate it when crap like this happens. SGU was a awesome series and still can be, which i can’t really say for all those other crappy teen drama vampire or supernatural related shows they replaced SGU with. yes i get the whole hey we can’t make slightly less for having less veiwers because 12,000 is a “HUGE” dent in these multi million doller programs… obviously i’m being sarcastic. sify has been taken over by little girls and vampire weirdos, what space related series is left, its all earth bound fantasy crap. Taking the entertained science fiction comunity and replacing it with insecure preteen entertainment. Another example of how were going extinct as a species. we’d all rather stroke ourselves to fake relationships then be facinated with exploration and intellegnce, that even the most ridiculus concept has atleast some real life possibility through science. not gay ass “magic” ohhh sparkles and waves of hands that require no skill or prowess just stupidity and luck. look at harry potter, is obvious you can be the best wizard in town as long as you can point your stick harder then the next guy…

Who ever decided to cut sgu, is well simply put a dumba$$ SGU is the best space faring sequel I have ever seen, it kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. The Director has done a great job, but no you cut it, I actually think im going to disconnect my cable now due to the fact i have nothing worth watching anymore!!!

(1726) xenabyte says:

My boys: 10, 8 and 6 all watched 10 years of SG on Netflix in less than 4 months…then watched SGA and started on SGU. The loved every show and were totally hooked on the franchise….

My husband and I had already been avid fans and we all are deeply dissapointed that SGU has been cancelled, and in such pathetic manner, with no hope of closure for a much beloved show.

Many, many years ago I paid alot of money for a dish system JUST so I could get Sci Fi so that we could watch SG. Now they do this. It makes a girl want to cancel her subscription and stop watching the channel…

I truely hope the powers that decided to cancel SGU in such a cliffhanger fashion get what they karmically deserve….

I can’t belive they did not renew the third season.. what a shame! I did not like it at first as it was slightly diffrent from SG1 and StarGate Atlantis but it started to grow on me! Sure wish they’d reconsider or some other channel like Showtime would pick it up!

Similar to other economical choices, you must ensure to watch out for your deception when applying for this kind of loans. One example is there isn’t a rationale you ought to be asked detailed on your credit history facts as the loans involve the operation of no appraisal of creditworthiness. Having said that, you may want a bank-account to obtain a digital payday loan. http://aolijia.net/ Nevertheless, a person’s eye costs in the on the internet quick unsecured loans or for instance, any unsecured finance, are somewhat higher thinking about the risk utilized through the financial institution. The transaction length of time time normally is determined by creditors to loan providers and the number of the net loans. But at the conclusion of manufactured, on the web lending options are the most effective strategies to consumer banking your self coming from all emergency monetary crises.

(1730) KC Christensen says:

SGU started out really slow, however, by the middle of the 2nd season, the character growth and survival was to the point that it had become a very good show with strong depth.

Other than the check loan comments above, I believe that the cancellation of this show and the desire to keep it on Syfy were both mistakes. If they transferred to a cable channel that didn’t require additional, more expensive, packages or made it more easily available on Roku, PS3/Xbox, Hulu, etc, would have provided for a better base with better visibility.

I too just watched this series on Netflix. I don’t usually get pulled into series that easily, but with SGU I just had to watch the next episode. The show is amazing. The story line, the visual affects, the actors. I want more! I want to know how the Destiny’s journey ends, I want to know what hardships the crew faces next. I want more SGU and there are plenty of other people that are right there with me!

The thing I can’t believe about some poeple who actually dare to show their face here (i.e. Werewolf)…. How stupid do you have to be really to not appreciate the carefull and subtle story and plots that went behind the scenes here?

You’re just a bunch of damned apes if shooting an alien 4 times more than usual is the only thing you’re interested in.
So shut up if you do not know what you’re talking about.

SG.U was very god and it build up to a great storyline.
A damn that we’ll never really ‘see’ how the Destiny would go about fulfilling it’s mission, and what this means on our characters.

Thanks again for the shallow and narrowminded folks who yet again kill something worthwhile in favor for crap senseless “entertainment”

(1757) marketwizard says:

It’s the cynical morons that couldn’t comprehend a more complex storyline than that which they were used to with the lame Stargate Universe and Stargate Atlantis series’ that were the death blow to SGU.

And to think, SGU was replaced the hill-billy, inbred, redneck, trailer trash of this country that forced SyFy’s half literate hand into ditching an entire franchise for the sake of appeasing America’s lowest class, IQ of a peanut, crack and steroid addicted retards.

Too bad you just couldn’t be content with your raccoon hunting and I do hope HBO/Showtime re-acquire the rights so that us white collar serial entrepreneurs who bring value to this society other than KKK wanna-be’s who still wish Hitler had won the war.

May death come upon WWE and all its fans. Any show that requires the IQ of a fruit fly deserves to be buried with Hitler and all the Nazi memorabilia we could muster from all the fans pinned to their TV’s on Friday nights watching this ridiculous, obnoxious excuse for entertainment.

at lease we would have had some ending to a very good story…

(1765) Tanja says:

I thought that SGU was the best of the Stargate series. Real, human and raw. Please continue with the series. Let us find out what happens when the crew awakes after their 3 years in stasis. You can’t just start something, get fans all over the world and then just cut of the story.

They tried the same with Farscape. At least that one got an ending. Not great but still sufficient. So, please SyFy. Come back on your decision and satisfy the need of thousands of SGU fans all over the world. Bring back the characters and finish your third season. Let us know how the story ends.

what a shame and what a way to end the series. The music they used was haunting. The theme exciting..They should atleast have commissioned a few more episodes to give the search an ending. Really we are shown a quite crass materialistic profit motive without any sense of artistic responsibility – for them it is just a consumer product to take money from the punters? What a world be live in.

(1770) Netfrog says:

Wow. Cancelling the only current show that remotely resembles the two biggest science fiction-icons ever – Star Wars and Star Trek! Makes me think Syfy doesn’t really deserve its name. Its a good thing they’re not called the Sci Fi Channel anymore. Come to think of it – maybe they changed their name to their current, less serious one in order to distance themselves from what used to be their core business. Talk about selling your soul.
I will never forget the moment I realized that the Destiny was headed into the star in order to refuel itself. It was a stroke of genius from the creators! SGU had a darker feel to it than its predecessors in my opinion, it had a slow start and featured alot of drama, almost too much from time to time. Still, its actors and its creators showed what great potential this show had.
I really hope Wilson is right in the article above – that Showtime will pick this up and give it the potentially magnificent future it could, and should, have.

It would be so easy to bing back. All they would need to do is find out which actors would return, have Eli back and mathboy find a way to accelorate their trip across the void, open pods of those who could return and have pods of those who can’t don’t return turn out to be defective and continue on. I didn’t get a chance to read all the other comments so trying not to be redundent but give best solution I could think of for channel like TNT to pick up. I also wich Terra Nova would be continued also. Another good option would be for science channel to pick these up as they are showing reruns of Fringe, Firefly and shortly Terra Nova.

1784 comments over 3 years, if these we letters to a government about a law it would have been changed 1000 comments and 2 years ago. SKY 2 did all episodes 2 a day for the last few weeks and season 2 ended yesterday, IT WAS AMAZING. Looked to see when the next season was on and found out it was axed. WHY!!!!!!! SYFI did you want to bring this back or did you want to spend a bit more money on poorly acted, horrendously written and badly digitalized graphics B class movies. Thank God i don’t pay for this channel and it comes free with a sky package, if i had to pay for it I would rather stick the money up my bum hole (coins included).
For any one that didn’t like it that’s fine you probably just didn’t understand it like a dog doesn’t understand it’s own reflection, but at least they have a tennis ball for you in the form of greased up muscly men in tight clothing rolling around on the floor, curios much?

My Only real enjoyment since the continuous repating of SG-1. I was really into SGU aswell as my partner, i was disappointed that i missed the start of the second series of SGU as it was not advertised, if it was i certainly missed it, thank god for catch up is all i say. really hope that syfy and sky2 really pulls their acts together and start listening to us little people that actually really likes some of their series that they air and not these poxy bleedin reallity shows and the other boring naf on tv. i would happily sign my name on a partion a million times to get them to consider to put the series back on its 5 YEAR PATH!!!!!!! very disapointing why do we pay a subscription to sky if they dont encourage their channel providers to air what we enjoy. A Definate big thumbs down!!!!

Thank god … The show started out good, but turned into the blandest pile of dump I ever watched.

So this girl gets “changed” by those aliens and then what? Oh, they undo all the “changes” when they meet them again .. Seriously?
Still doesn’t beat the part where the dude who nailed Youngs wife got kidnapped by other aliens for months and receives a warm welcome by the crew.

This show didn’t deserve the name ‘Stargate’ imho.

OMG, this is total crap.

I am just watching the last epi of series 2 and this is shocking news for me.

There is so much rubbish on TV and long time greats that have a history and IMO future get axed. What a waist and shame.

This should be on the air…..end off.

I have an idea of who should pick it up. I was thinking that Netflix could pick it up as a series. It would be a way for them to get more customers from the SiFi world. I am already a member and I watch all of the other StarGate series and StarTrex series on Netflix.

Just really got around to watching this. Loved it. Watched both seasons in just under a week. Really wish I’d been there to support it in the beginning. I hope the channel’s execs keep tabs on these comments to see that the fan base is still growing years after cancellation. If a season three airs, I’ll be there, and I bet the rest of the sorry lot who ignored it the first time around will be, too.

I know this web site presents quality based content and extra stuff, is there any
other website which provides such data in quality?

Stargate Universe has been cancelled for more than 3 years and people are still complaining and still unheard. if this doesn’t say something about the people running these shows then i dont know what will. I remember watching the twilight show as a kid, and other shows like that. shows that thought outside of the box (or outside of time and space). now the flare that i loved so much from the SciFi channel (not calling it SyFy thats just retarded) is gone, and in its place is crap.

When I first heard about Stargate Universe. then it was already in the end of season 2
and I found it sad to hear that it was void so soon

so of course I saw through all my DVDs — Sg1 – Stargate Atlantis and – Stargate Infinity as consolation prize
since I’m never will forgive SyFy for what they did

great show that could have Surpassed sg1

in my opinion

When some one searches for his required thing, therefore he/she wishes to be available that in

Beautiful hair isn’t just about the color or the cut; it’s also about its overall health.

I was invited to a tea session with Bio-Oil at Spruce
@ Phoenix Park, and had the skin tanned and made into beauty whitening cream a medium paste and applied to cradle cap about anhour before bed.
At the mention of Beverly, Sunny sat forward, putting his chin above the
front seat. My older daughter was happy with my skin issues that I might experience slight flakiness of my skin were greatly reduced.

I just finished the series on NetFlix and it was great. Seems the execs always cancel the good stuff and leave the bad. Great show.. it should be continued as a series or movie.
