STARGATE UNIVERSE A PREMATURE END

SO SKY HAS FINALLY BEGUN THE LAST FEW EPISODES OF STARGATE UNIVERSE BEFORE IT HEADS OUT TO THAT BIG CANCELLATION GRAVEYARD.

THIS I THOUGHT I WOULD NEVER BE WRITING BECAUSE I DIDN’T LIKE IT WHEN IT FIRST STARTED. ATLANTIS HAD BEEN CANCELLED JUST BEFORE IT HAD A MAJOR UPTURN IN QUALITY THAT HADN’T BEEN SEEN SINCE SEASON 1. ALL THESE GUYS WHO HAVE COMPLAINED ABOUT ATLANTIS LEAVING US SO SOON FORGET FOR A LONG TIME THE EPISODE QUALITY WAS DIRE, FALLING INTO CLICHE AND BOREDOM BUT BEGAN TO TURNABOUT IN THE END.

YES I THINK IT DESERVED ANOTHER SEASON BUT ONLY IF THE STORY QUALITY HAD BEEN MAINTAINED.

AS I SAID UNIVERSE STARTED OH SO SLOWLY, SWEET JESUS THERE WERE NIGHTS I THOUGHT WHAT WAS THE POINT. IT WAS TRYING TO BE GALACTICA IN MORE GRITTY, REAL STORYTELLING BUT LOOKING FOR WATER DOES NOT MAKE A GOOD STORY.

BUT IT BEGAN TO IMPROVE MIDWAY THROUGH, THE INTRODUCTION OF ALIENS WAS VITAL AND ENDED SEASON 1 IN ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFULLY EXECUTED AND EXCITING CLIFFHANGERS EVER.

NOW WE ARE IN SEASON 2 JUST AS THINGS ARE MOVING ALONG, GREAT STORIES, THOUGHT PROVOKING STORIES, FANTASTIC CHARACTERS THAT ARE GROWING RATHER THAN BEING TREK ONE STARTERS.

TWIN DESTINIES, THE LAST EPISODE TOOK A TIME TRAVEL STORY AND TURNED IT INTO A SUPERBLY CRAFTED TALE FOR RUSHE AND A SHOCKING EXIT.

WHAT A PITY THIS SERIES HAS BEEN LOST. WITH SO FEW SCIFI ABOUT, IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN GIVEN ANOTHER CHANCE.
