One thought on “Tuning in to SciFi TV #57 – Last Call”
I’m a fan of Stargate Universe, tolerating through the slower episodes because I believe they will pay off in the long run.
I think the show is very similar to Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles’ Second Season in the way that the plot seems to inch incredibly slowly, focusing on the characters perhaps to a fault. (The three dots storyline draaaagged on.)
I’m convinced that SGU will be a much better program when we’re able to see all the episodes together at the end on DVD or Bluray based on the level of detail and continuity we’re seeing so far. The problem is that not everyone has time or patience to wait for the show to “become good” on faith.
Charlie Jade is another show that kinda had this problem. The first two episodes of that series set up the plot, but the storyline meanders for 6-7 episodes until it became good. If I didn’t have the show readily available via the internet, I don’t know if I would have stuck with it. (Of course, it can be mostly attributed to a change in writing staff, but I think the long wait was also a factor.)
So my solution is to either save up the show on DVR and watch multiple episodes at a time, or just wait until the season ends before picking it up. What do you guys and girl think?
