I love SG:U, very sad it's gone. I couldn't get past the first six episodes of Atlantis, and was glad they finally got rid of it. SG-1, Atlantis, and SG:U are all very different shows to me, so I think it's a bit silly they all get lumped together as if they are all supposed to be the same exact thing. I think this is what hurt SG:U more than any other factor.

I really liked SG-1. I like SG:U more overall, but they're not comparable at all.

I'm sorry Rak but I just don't like SGU. Too much sex and arguing, not enough real action.

SG > SG-1. BTW the last 2 SG movies should be out eventually :) SG Movies, not SG:A, not SG1 and not SGU :)

SGU had about 5 minutes (at most) of sex scenes in the whole series. Thats way less then most other series ...

Rip SGU, even though it was the fourth SG series, I think it was 2nd best :)

They went way overboard with the whole "flawed hero" thing they did. Most of the main characters were very unlikable and very hard to identify with. That's why they failed, I think - I just couldn't care about any of the characters.

Why does this always happen. Yes SG U was a pile of crap for most of the first season. It had awful if no plot in some episodes. It was depressing beyond belief and hard to connect to any of the characters.

Now when it at last becomes good in season two it gets cancelled lol. Sigh always happens lol

I understand why a lot of people liked Survivor Pegasus Galaxy, I mean SGU with it's forced and over the top drama with people marooned people who thought spending the entire time fighting petty squabbles over actually surviving, is attractive to a lot of people.

It's why Soap Opera Galactica, the WWE, and 'reality' TV, and Soap Operas are popular. The constant conflict and extremes of character attract people.

I detest that type of show however, so to me, SGU was by far the worst of the series.

So, selfishly, I'm glad it's gone, but I'm surprised too. It seemed like it had devleoped quite a strong fan base.

I will miss Eli and rush but thats about it. It just didnt have what I wanted in a a stargate show. To little humor for one big thing, and after 2 seasons of omg we are going to die!!!! every 5 min it got old.
O'neall was the star of sg1 because of his humor and kick ass nature. Mckay was my favorite character in Atlantis because of his humor and arrogance. Eli was the best character in sgu, why? he could be funny!

Agreed.

I really enjoyed SG:U, but never liked any of the other SG series.

Overall, I don't really get this thread. You seem to think that by SG:U getting cancelled that somehow this will increase the odds of SG:A getting a sixth season when likely the opposite is the case.

I thought they came out with it too early. Atlantis was amazing, and didn't need to end. They should have added Jackson and Teal'c to SGA. It would have kept it going. (Todd the wraith kicks ass, fyi).

I love the idea behind SGU, but they needed more connection with Stargate characters. The best episode this season was with McKay. FFS, do that more and it would have worked. I don't hate it. I wish MGM wouldn't have gone bankrupt so they could finish it out. SGU is still better than most crap out there, and I would gladly watch it. Unless it interfered with Dexter......

I really loved SG:U, and didn't care for SG:A. I watched a lot of SG:A, and felt like the characters were pretty terrible overall, and the series really lacked a good direction and storyline. I liked the rivalries in SG:U, which mirrored some of the things I've seen in field crews in the real world, though obviously on a larger scale.

McKay, Shepherd, and Todd the wraith were the strongest characters imo. The chick Dr., or Kaylee from Firefly, was just fun to look at.
