Will you please just get on with it already?
We get it. They’re in space. It’s dark. It’s a big freaking void.
But I’m so sick of the “Stargate Universe” crew facing imminent death at every foreseeable turn.
Can we start watching the show now? Please?
We’re three weeks and four episodes in, and they’re already recording the “Dear Home, If we die out there…” messages. They didn’t get to that until the end of the first season of “Atlantis.” Although we knew they would go there, because Brad Wright and company stopped writing new show ideas sometime around 2001.
I don’t mean to be bitter. I’m still glad that some semblance of Stargate is back on the air, even if it is just a semblance.
This week’s episode, “Darkness” felt too similar to the first three episodes. Maybe frustration is a good thing? I admit that I’m really looking forward to whatever enemy or actual plot will start to develop.
There’s also just — I never thought I’d actually say this — there’s too much sexual tension. It seems like any 10 characters are just going to drop down and bang at any given moment. Stargate Orgy, anyone?
We do have a genuine McKay/Zelenka between Rush and Volker.
Nothing else happened in this episode. They were dying before “Darkness,” and they’re still dying. They found some new planets, but now they might crash into the sun. They’re out of power. Etc.
“Darkness” could have been a 10 minute intro to a real episode.
Kinda waiting on one of those…
