Universe had a lot of potential. The main problem was that it was a serious show based on human drama, rather than the happy go lucky sci fi
predecessors. Most fans didn't like that, and the fact that the scifi took a backseat to the emotional drama. I see what they were trying to do.
They wanted a show similar to Lost where character development and love for the individual characters and their back stories defines it, rather than a
continuous developing plot. It just didn't really seem to fit with a stargate show. Battlestar Galactica did a nice job in that regard, but some of
those SGU episodes really had me scratching my head. They could have taken place in a barn in Nebraska. No scifi at all. It was supposed to be a
scifi show but the plot moved so ridiculously slow and the main antagonists were humans. I think they realized their error halfway through season 2
and tried to make it up for it and win the fanbase back, but it was too late. Things really picked up and were genuinely enjoyable near the end...
but season 1 and most of season 2 had pretty much no main plotline, and it seemed like they weren't going anywhere. People lost interest. So much
time was spent with the communication stones and completely irrelevant storylines. It stinks that they had to end the show right when it was getting
good. I just hope that in some way the star gate franchise returns. They are afraid to even make movies now, because the show did poorly. If they
brought back Atlantis, I guarantee they'd be making good money again, and companies wouldn't be afraid to sponsor them. (Sorry about off topic post,
I'm a huge fan of the franchise and couldn't contain myself)
