EPISODE REVIEW: Stargate Universe: “Time” (Season 1, Episode 8)

Man oh man oh man, did they knock it out of the park tonight, or what? This is the first unquestionably great episode of the series, and obviously if they submit one for awards this year, this’ll be the one they choose. We’ve all had our misgivings with the show. Even I - and I really do like the show - have had some misgivings here and there, not so much with the premise or the cast or whatever, but just that it seemed to be taking so long to get going in the first few episodes.

EPISODE REVIEW: Stargate Universe: “Earth” (Season 1, Episode 7)

We’re three episodes away from the halfway point in the season, and the obligatory Syfy/Sci-Fi channel mid-season break, and I find that I’m firmly on board for the show, and I feel as if the low key long-term startup of the show is starting to pay off. Many have complained that it feels like it’s spinning it’s wheels -and compared to the previous shows, it is - but what a lot of critics don’t seem to realize is that this show isn’t aiming to be a carbon copy of the previous series, but rather a new kind of storytelling for a new kind of show set in the same ol’ fictional Gateverse.

EPISODE REVIEW: Stargate Universe: “Water” (Season 1, Episode 6)

It’s interesting that a lot of the diehards I know are complaining that this isn’t a Stargate show, not really, and they never use the stargate, and they’re never visiting planets, and they’re always on that damn ship, and they never go anywhere and wah wah wah I wanna’ see people walking through the woods in Cascadia and pretend it’s an alien planet, dammit! It always cracks me up when people do that. They claim they want something new, they claim that they didn’t like SGA because it was too much like SG1, but then they say that SGU is too different, and they can’t handle it.

EPISODE REVIEW: Stargate Universe: “Air, Part 3” (Season 1, Episode 3)

The third episode picks up right where the first one left off, and in fact kind of surprised me by being the final act of the premier. Even more to my surprise, it was much better than the premier as a whole, and the previous episode in specific.

PLAY BY PLAY

Around 1986, Lt. Scott is born, though of course he’s not a Lieutenant at the time.

Around 1994, or a bit prior, both of Scott’s parents die in a car accident. The boy is raised by a catholic priest. Scott, naturally, decides he wants to grow up to be a priest as well.

We’re all slaves to what’s come before. If you have a new thought, a million people have had it before you, more than likely. Whatever language you speak, odds are it wasn’t your decision to speak that language, it was just dumb luck that you happened to be born in to the country that spoke that language. If you like Rock and not Opera, it probably has more to do with the socioeconomic conditions and time you were born in to, more than a conscious decision on your part. Everything we do is built upon a billion things we didn’t do that came before us.
