DVD: So Long Stargate Universe; Welcome Home Season 2!

stargate2

After spawning two series that ran for a combined fifteen years – and two straight-to-video movies – the Stargate franchise, Stargate Universe, got canceled just as it was beginning to peak. The season two DVD set contains the final episodes of the series, along with a host of extras and a look at why the show ended on the note it did.

Stargate Universe [Syfy, Tuesdays, 9/8C] makes its second season premiere on a new night – and that’s the only thing that’s changed. Intervention finds the inhabitants of the ancient Ancient starship Destiny in as precarious a position as the one in which they were when last we saw them – but we don’t actually find that out until after the very intriguing teaser.

TELEVISION REVIEW: Stargate Universe – Billions and Billions of Lightyears From Home!

Stargate Universe [Syfy, Fridays, 9/8C] premieres this evening with the first two hours of a three-hour introduction to the Stargate universe’s darkest and potentially most mature series, thus far. In a strange fusion of Lost in Space [the movie, not the campy TV series], classic Stargate and the tone of a Battlestar Galactica [again, not the campy one], SGU takes a bunch of people – soldiers, scientists and civilians, as the press materials say so alliteratively – and deposit them on an Ancient ship that is possibly hundreds of thousands of years old – and big enough that the Prometheus would like a shuttle beside it.

Air [Parts 1 & 2] opens with a tracking shot exploring a dark, dingy corridor and finishing up in a Gate Room where the Stargate opens and people begin hurtling through. They’re quite a mix and some of them, including an apparently high-ranking military man, take damage – some from landing hard; some from having other people and equipment land on them. To mix expletives, what the frak?

HOLLYWOOD INSIDER: David Blue and Elyse Levesque Talk Up Stargate Universe!

Blue & Levesque

Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to take part in a conference call Q&A session for Stargate Universe [Syfy, Friday, 9/8C]. The Q&A was supposed to be with David Blue and Brian J. Smith, but Smith was unable to make it, so the quick-thinking folks at Syfy rang up Elyse Levesque who jumped in completely unprepared. Judging from the laughs and general good feelings evinced by David and Elyse, Stargate Universe maintains the Stargate reputation for happy sets.

The Q&A was moderated by Syfy’s Marian Arias and the following bloggers/journalists also took past: Jamie Ruby [Media Blvd.], Curt Wagner [Red Eye], Troy Rogers [thedeadbolt.com], Michael Simpson [Cinema Spy], Stacy Whitley [Pop Culture Madness], and Julia Diddy [fancast.com].

Edgier and younger in tone than the two previous series, SGU follows a band of soldiers, scientists and civilians, who must fend for themselves as they are forced through a Stargate when their hidden base comes under attack. The desperate survivors emerge aboard an ancient ship, which is locked on an unknown course and unable to return to Earth.
