Topic: 2x19 Blockade

Other than getting full power and loosing all their fresh plants on the ship this was definately a filler episode. Since it was mentioned before that probably the episodes were written before the cancellation, i can't see any point of this episode. Sad.

Yes, but if it wasn't cancelled it would have been a good episode...

Re: 2x19 Blockade

I think this episode was rather good. It featured the Destiny and dealt with the drones again. But I agree - having the series finale ahead we need more dramatic episodes with conclusions to many plot linesll I guess we don't get ths neutral

And what was this last thingy than submerged from the sky?

I Believe it was one of the drones motherships, but we can't be sure.

Re: 2x19 Blockade

I really liked it, it continued and deepened the theme that they are getting desperate. It is almost reminding me of the first episode of BSG season 1 when the cylons kept finding them again and again 33 minutes after they jumped....as machines they can keep doing it but the humans are getting tired etc.

After being one of its biggest critics in season 1 and almost being glad they had cancelled it, I'm really going to miss this show now, this season has been really entertaining.

Re: 2x19 Blockade

I wonder where one will go for a good sci-fi show a setting in space after this. hmm This has been the best Stargate since they took away all the cheesy humour and made it more "real" / dark.

Re: 2x19 Blockade

We should hold a "save stargate universe" riot...

I certainly am feeling emotional enough for the premature cancellation to actually go nuts sad.

Re: 2x19 Blockade

I just really hope they don't end on a complete cliffhanger. (Obviously they are going to if it has not been rewritten/reshot, but I can but hope!)
This season has been great and just makes you want to know more: the drones, their descendants, Chloe being changed by the aliens, those aliens, that ship that detached itself from Destiny near the end of last season, and just more about destiny...
sad

Re: 2x19 Blockade

Seeing as they had planned a movie in SGU, I guess they didn't get to finish the series by the end of this season. And that's shitty too, since we wont get a movie now either.

I loved this episode! It ended before I even noticed it had startet tongue

Re: 2x19 Blockade

This was actually a very good episode - both stories were thrilling and well-told. And it was one of the funniest episodes I can remember: "Holy crap, we dialed Pittsburgh," and "Maybe they are Canadian," etc. were hilarious one-liners.

Re: 2x19 Blockade

really great ep, I didn't thought I ever say that, but damn - I will really miss this show :o

Re: 2x19 Blockade

I also thought this was a great episode. I hate that it's been canceled.

This is a much better show than Atlantis, yet it somehow lasted 5 seasons.

It's such a shame, and I don't think there is any way they can wrap this show up in just a couple of episodes that would do it justice.

Shame on the people behind the cancellation of this show. Shame shame shame.

You have to agree that the last series of Atlantis was just terrible, the second last wasn't too great either...plus it brought us the most hated female character in Sci-Fi history..I don't think I need to mention her name.

It's hard to remember Atlantis being great with such a poor finish.

I'll say that I think SGU at it's best was better than Atlantis at it's best.

The spelling on Novus also had some differences from proper English.

Re: 2x19 Blockade

premature cancellations SUCK!
I don't care if I hate the show, in this case I don't, but ALL premature cancellations offend me. THIS ONE ... GAH! Thing is: SGU either needs a movie or a mini-season finale. I would love for the authors to do with SGU what Russel T. Davies did with Torchwood with Children of Earth. Think! A five parter series finale über-stravaganza!

Everybody lives, just this once, everybody lives!

Re: 2x19 Blockade

Well, what the author wants doesn't matter now, does it? Then the show wouldn't be cancelled.. Also, they did want to make a movie as a closure because of the cancellation, but that didn't work out either.

Re: 2x19 Blockade

I think if the rating had picked up earlier in the series the network might have green lit a TV movie, but it was all to late...

I prefer SGU. Atlantis is a "fun" show, SGU is playing on a darker tone and while I do appreciate the overbeaten Oneil Clone (Shepard) and the crazy scientist and all, the SGU crew has more realistic behavior (well, sort of) given the situations they are put in.

It's comedy against drama anyway, there can't be a winner when personal taste comes in. smile
