Right so I’ve finally gotten to watching through all of season 2 of Stargate Universe as until now I’d always given up sometime through season 1, as the first season is just GrimDark to 11 so I ended up only catching bits of the second, and after episode 7 it begins to get really good. I still don’t think it should’ve been given the Stargate branding to be honest as it’s still too straight for a franchise that was built around campiness but my god do they finally make the characters good to watch (such as making Rush a dick at worst rather than a complete arsehole) and actually start having fun as a show.

Until now I’d always partially seen the “it got good towards the end” as a lame excuse but I can really see what people meant now as if this was what the show was like from the start it’d probably have gotten onto season 4 before MGM stupidly cancelled it.
