    Why? So far, all we know about it is the title, and the title sucks. [​IMG]

    Actually, I have no doubt it'll be good, but that working title has got to go.

    i like it because it doesn't depend on pre-conceived notions, either from stargate film->stargate SG-1 series OR SG-1->Atlantis. there are strings attached other than the CONCEPT of stargate travels. so, if they really want to go down that path, that would rock. i hate to see cross-universe guest stars. i think it cheapens both series when both ongoing series avail themselves to both series' stars.

    I guess I see it the opposite way - if 2 or more shows are set in the same universe, I think it strengthens boths shows by having cross-overs - especialy in the case of Stargate (SG1/Atlantis). If each show had 'ignored' the other, it would be a glaring omission, and therefore, a major weakness.

    I'll watch but it'll have to prove itself to me in order to get excited. So far, from what I've heard, the writing staff is basically the same. If true, I can't envision a whole lot of new creativity.

    What made SG1 special was it's connection to mythology - Egyptian, early on, then other myths later. Atlantis got away from that, and suffered, IMHO. Universe is furthering that disassociation and unless they compensate with some other interesting feature, it's going to suffer the same fate as Atlantis - only faster.

    Hey, that's the guy from 28 Weeks Later.
    Looks good, even though it looks like Voyager. It looks different enough from SG-1 or Atlantis to be interesting. It'll be my first time to watch a Stargate show live. I wish I had SyFy in HD. I only have three more episode of Atlantis to go, so I should be ready in time for Oct. 2.

    To us Brits, he is the guy from Trainspotting!!! - Robert Carlyle - and him being in this is the main thing that makes me interested in watching this show. Looks promising

    Probably to a lot of Americans as well, but I've just never seen it.

    I always think of him in "The Full Monty" which was (and still is) damn funny.

    Series looks potentially good. Atlantis to me really fell off a cliff somewhere in there.. I think it was the moment where the replicators came in, and I thought "jeez, can't they have their own unique villains" plus it didn't jive with SG-1's "we've wiped them all out everywhere / this is how the replicators started". I just couldn't get into it after that.

    But I'll give SG-U a go. As long as they don't recycle old enemies, I'm good.

    Looks like three lovers' embraces in one trailer. I hope they ain't sexin' it up.

    Robert Carlyle and Lou Diamond Philips? This might be pretty good. To me, it doesn't have that same old "SG1 / Atlantis" feel (both of which I absolutely loved). The trailer makes it seem more polished and "bigger budget" than the previous shows.

    And in that second trailer, was that an homage to "The Last Starfighter"?

    Thanks. I would have missed it. As it is, I may have to hope for an encore as my DVR is pretty busy tonight.

    Edit: turns out that recording period is open, so I'll catch the first run. Looks like there would have been plenty of other opportunities as well.
