I just finished watching this weeks episode of SG-U, and I have two words. Holy Crap! I mean, WTF. The show is young. It was cancelled before it's prime. And blammo... in it's death throws what do we see? Groundbreaking TV. My BSG posts are in the rafters waiting to be flushed out and published where you will see the extent of my entertainment critique ability. But here? What a loss. The show is over and in a few weeks forgotten. No, SGU did not have the light hearted comedic taste of SG-1. It was not as good as Atlantis and paled in comparison to Battlestar Galactica. But for the love of god did it have to? It was good enough! Certainly better than Caprica which got much more promotion, budget and corporate love. Way better than Sanctuary, Haven and Eureka. Why has this show been cut? It did not beat out weekly WCW raw broadcasts? Ghosthunters got more viewers on Wednesdays? Fact or Faked got a 1/10th more viewer ship? Ugh. Whatever the reason. Sci-fi cut a great show with nothing but growth potential, while keeping garbage that belongs on TNT and Spike.
