So now that im almost done with atlantis. i can review properly.

SG1
This is da badass mainshow. Period. But boy, did it went downhill after S8 when everyone left da show. So disappointin. Ah yes, the iconic theme, the characters. But not every episode is good, some r quite cheesy but the lightheartedness of da series plus some episodes r epic, really makes this series shine. After S8, u got the 2 new ppl who everyone recognizes from farscape. They had there moments, they did well, but they just aint the originals. Plus Ori started off good but damn did the story suck later on.

8/10

Atlantis
This shit is basically SG1 but more advanced. The wraith started off badass but became weaker. Nevertheless the cast was weak at first but solid later when they ditched some of the weakies.
Story really took off after S1 and some like the rodney mckay was annoyin at first but really u kinda appreciate how he played the scientist role.
So anyway, it was SG1 but different universe, still lighthearted, solid story later on. Good cameo appearances throughout from SG1 cast and u got solid entertainment.

7.9/10

SG universe
Just started this shit. Boy did this shit start slow. Some of the characters r crap! like that wizzkid guy, and some of da decisions r downright bs. Gone r da lighthearty feel, SGU is very much like modern series. Feels like that 2 with heavy confrontations, big u turns and shit.
But boy after first few episodes, this show fkin kicks ass! Certainly i still hate some characters but damn da story, da rivalry between rush and young, add some mystery in2 it and u got a kickass show. i cant believe how underrated this show is. almost done with S1 and im kinda changed my mind and likin it so far.

7.5/10

some bullshit about ratings. I loved that series by the end of season 2. I'm still hoping against hope that some how they will do something to complete that story.

Was not a fan of SGU overall. It had some good episodes, but just didn't come together in a way I appreciated.

SG1 was great, but slow at times. And season 7 was absolutely terrific. I liked SGA as well, as it really melded together once they found suitable roles for everyone. I'm still a big fan of Zelenka, he was a great character.

problem with sg1 and atlantis was how some of da supportin cast was no more then supportin cast always. and while it was good it was basically just comedy style episodes. only some episodes had sequels etc.

with universe, all da cast have backstories and shit. and da story basically continues throughout.
great cameo appearances throughout.

2 bad this shit is over. i mean they cant get da cast back again coz they all do different shit now.

any other shows like sg universe. like i heard of babylon 5 and saw some episodes as a kid but never rlly got in2 it much and shit.

Babylon 5 is good. Farscape is the best TV show ever (season 1 is quirky, but not bad. Season 2 and beyond is excellent).

Admit it, the Wraith eating people's souls is solid comedy. Shame about the rest of Atlantis.

universe simply left a huge gap in my cravin 4 sci fi series. the endin was so bad. i mean they werent bad episodes but just u know it wasnt gonna continue and shit but the episode just ended without da story endin...thats just bullshit. and u culd alrdy tell robert carlyle and the others knew it was canned and shit. coz they were hardly fightin anymore. they were just doing there last minutes on screen coz there contracts say so otherwise they wuldve just packed and left alrdy.

damn why did it have 2 end like this. and that rlly is da only reason 4 tryin out babylon 5...but at how bad that show is right now, shuld i even waste my time when there r so many other series i can watch right now.

robert carlyle did a magnificent job playin rush. rush is by far the most badass character nerd in da stargate universe.

seems like he is doin other serie like once upon a time. maybe i shuld check that out.

but just knowin all of them r doing other series simply confirms stargate universe aint ever comin back....thats such a bullshit. man wtf.

The series has a continuous arching story line, so you really need to see the whole thing. That being said, the initial mini series is a bit slow at first. All in all, if you like intense drama where everyone is fucked almost all the time, it is a very solid show. The first half of season 3 suffered a bit from the writers strike though.

Ya, he does a very good job of playing psychos. My favorite role of his is Francis Begbie

started Once upon a time and The 100.

dunno, the 100 seemed promisin first episode. it felt rlly like stargate, u got the ark (space) and u got the earth settin. so it felt like stargate and i thought i hit jackpot. First episode also had cool shit like a giant snake, and possibly giant man eatin mutants.

now few episodes in, this shit is nottin like stargate, its so fkin borin, u wuldnt believe. how the fck culd anyone mess up a story like that. by havin shitty characters, dumbass storyline, failure of subplots and all kinds of fcked up plots. there r no mutants, there r no giant man eatin monsters, the ark story line is bullshit. the earth storyline consists of a couple of pretty faces know it all who r makin out with that one and that one and whatever. who the fck gives 2 shits about this rlly. im thinkin of stoppin and watchin something else.

how the fck can u fck up a story about survivin a hostile earth with giant man eatin mutants while figurin out how 2 survive and while u have the sci fi settin up in space at the ark...

Once upon a time is the other show im watchin. carlyle is masterfull yet again. but idk, show seems kinda dumbed down made 4 teens and mid 20s peoplez. doesnt have the real realistic adult version of tv series like walkin dead, game of thrones and stargate. seems more like faerytale, little teens and shit. i mean storywise its not ok ish but the princesses and princess and shit r startin 2 annoy me after a few episodes alrdy.

god damn is there no fkin hardcore sci fi shit that i can just go 2. WHYYYYYYY!!!!!!????

reason SGU ended the way it did was because the last episode was filmed 3 months before the decision to cancel came down from SyFy.
