Stargate Universe Finally Gets More Interesting [Cinema Static]

Friday night’s episode (12/4/09) of Stargate Universe got very interesting. (A bit spoilerly chat follows)

We had a mystery murder, they dealt with the issue entreily in-house on the ship, (That means no communication stones), we had resolution and wow, we had a sneaky and unthinkable action take place at the end of the episode.

There was a murder on the ship, that turned out to be a suicide.

The investigation that ensued made many people suspicious of each other on the ship.

In the end, it seems that Dr. Rush tried to set up Col. Young to take the fall for the suicide.

Near the end of the episode, Destiny drops out of hyperspace for a planet. While on-planet Young and Rush butt heads, (as was the intention of Young, to call Rush on the set up.) Rush tells Young he will always be looking at ways to take him out of the equation to get his way. With mere minutes to spare before the Destiny leaves, Young decks Rush and leaves him on the planet.

Now we’ve got some interesting plot lines developing as Rush wakes up under an ever darkening sky on the planet he was left behind on. Of course he’s got himself an alien ship to tinker with on the planet he was left on, but dang, we finally left someone behind.

Now how the heck is Rush (Robert Carlyle) ever going to get back on the ship? Or is he leaving the show? (I seriously don’t think he’s leaving the show. I just threw that out there to make you wonder.)

For the first time this season, I am actually looking forward to the next episode of Stargate Universe.

And yea.. Tim is the man.
I can’t have the kind of resolve because face it, somedays, Syfy is more tolerable than other options at times…
Oh how I wish I could have Tim’s resolve.

Jason… nope, not 2 weeks this time.
We’re in this hokey thing called a mid-season break.
STARGATE UNIVERSE won’t be back until April 2nd.
Pretty annoying if you ask me!

To be honest, I love SG-U. I was surprised by it, but not disappointed. The fact is: It is not SG-1 or SG:A. That said, it has some elements that endear it to me.

I was also surprised to hear that a person standing on principles would boycott a TV channel when 1 actor/actress is no longer appearing on said channel, but not when the Sci-Fi (I refuse to call it SySy…) Channel began showing wrestling, for pity’s sake. I guess my principles are both different AND not as strong. Tim, I salute you and your stand.

It seems my biggest problem with the channel LATELY is their lack of ability to get SG-U out every week this past month. 2 weeks between Ep 8 and 9, and another 2 weeks between 9 and 10. Now there was no Episode on Dec 11th… So another 2 weeks (at least) from Ep 10 TO 11… sad.

You speak with your “wallet” and let them know. That’s how people need to do it Tim!

Sorry Bruce,
but the SyFy channel is permanently blocked at my house until Emilie Ullerup returns to Sanctuary as a permanent cast member.
Or, she lands a lead role in a series on another network or film. And no, a supporting role on an internet series that lasts for less than ten minutes every two weeks isn’t enough.
If that means no more SGU, W13, Caprica, or Eureka so be it.
I have a reputation for cutting off my nose to spite my face. I have spent a lifetime costing myself dearly by standing on principle. Not watching one channel is nothing.
My last transgression was when I sneaked over to ‘On Demand’ to watch the SGU episode “Time”. It won’t happen again because it wasn’t worth it.
I have no control over what a network or producers do with their actors or their shows.
I do know where the off switch on my TV is.
