GateWorld Podcast: SGU Season One Recap

Wednesday - June 23, 2010
Category: FEATURES | Tags: ,

Destiny 3 Visit the GateWorld Podcast page for more about the show!

The freshman season of Stargate Universe is complete! In this week’s podcast, GateWorld’s Darren and David will look at the first year of SGU as a whole and discuss what we thought worked. How did the second half of the season compare to the first half? Character drama, alien threats, separation from home, communication stones, and more — it’s all on the table as we dissect Season One and decide if it lived up to our own expectations.

But first, we’ll also be talking about the news of writer-producer Robert C. Cooper’s departure from Stargate.

If you are a fan of Doctor Who, stick around after the show for a bonus discussion! Darren has picked three episodes for David to watch, and this week David will give us his newbie take on the show and whether he’s been convinced to keep watching.

  • Your podcast cuts off right in the middle. I use the Gateworld Podcast grey link on this site to listen.

  • thanks! didn’t want to miss David’s take on Dr. Who!

  • Yep, works fine now. From me you get a huge thanks for putting the Dr. Who discussion at the end this time. I listen to the podcast for Stargate and know zilch about Dr. Who, so thanks for not making me have to ff and guess where we get back to the “interesting stuff” this time :o). I was going to suggest a Dr. Who only podcast… but I guess that’s not so necessary any more.

  • Enjoyed the podcast this week a lot. Keep up the good work.

    Idea for a future podcast, or maybe just a discussion during one – if you had 3 episodes to hook someone on the Stargate franchise (or each show individually), what would you pick?

    I had that dilemma about a year ago with a friend and SG-1 and found it hard to pick a few early episodes that would get him hooked (I was worried the later stuff would be a bit too confusing). In the end I had to make a deal to get him to watch the first 10 or so episodes from SG-1, which worked… But I don’t know if I could do it in only 3 episodes!

  • Overall I liked season one of SGU, though it wasn’t quite as much fun as the first season of Atlantis. I attribute this to the differences in the show( SGA =action/adventure, SGU = character drama). It did have some strong episodes (Air pt. 3, Time, Space, Divided,Human) and a couple I didn’t care for (Life, Faith). I think the communication stones have run their course though. Looking forward to season 2.

  • I’ve been a long time fan of Stargate since the original Stargate movie. I’ve been trying keep an open mind to this new formula they are trying out with SGU. I was disappointed to say the least. I will probably be a casual watcher of the show til it gets canceled. On another note I do enjoy these podcasts they sometimes bring to light things i wasn’t paying as much attention to which then causes me to go back and watch the episode again. However I do wish you guys brought in a 3rd host that at least is some what critical of the show. It feels like a little too much of a love fest sometimes for a show that is not sitting well with the core stargate fans. Anyways just my opinion.
