Yeah, good call, continue SGU then Richard Dean Anderson is free to bring back Mc Gyver
SGU was a terrible show in every sense. No feeling of adventure. Not even a sense of exploration, even while they hurdled through the unknown. It was like they kept the stargate prop, and added nick jr actors and a battlestar galactica vibe.
Thanks for letting me know theres a movement for the show, so I can try and stop it <3
SG 1 or NOPE.
I'm not sure the support is there for it to be revived and they would have a heck of a time getting Robert Carlyle, Ming-Na, and Louis Ferreira to appear as they are all on current tv series as regulars. Most likely they would have recast those roles as I can't see Once Upon A Time or Shield getting cancelled anytime soon. Motive on the other hand is a possibility.
Good luck though.

Another strong reason it was probably cancelled was the fact that the Canadian dollar rose while the US dollar dropped causing it to be more expensive to produce than before. A Sci-Fi series such as it costs a lot of money to produce. Shows like BSG and Stargate enjoyed much lower costs filming in Vancouver, with the cheap dollar and the tax incentives the provincial government offered.
You can't be serious. SGU was a bastardization of Stargate. I barely managed to make it through the whole thing. It was like watching BSG and some random soap opera mixed together, I couldn't freaking stand it. It's a disgrace to the Stargate name. The characters were terrible, the story could've been done so much better, and the over-the-top drama and BSG-style cinematography were just too much for me to tolerate.
I'm a huge SG fan. Loved the movie, SG-1, SG:A, but SG:U made me sick to my stomach. I was cheering when I heard there wouldn't be any more after it >.>
nope... was by far the worst of the 3.. please leave it dead.. I have fond memories of SG1 and SG-A
Where is the Firefly petition? If I'm going to sign something to get a show revived I want to at least sign for a good one.
SGU was great. Gritty, dramatic, interesting story and good characters. Not sure why it was canceled. The overall plot was AMAZING, stuck on a several million year old spacecraft that is falling apart and on auto pilot in an unknown part of the universe.
Is there any chance they will ever make the movie that was supposed to finish the SGA plot? It was called Stargate: Extinction I think.
I'd rather they do a new show.
While it was great to see the world of Stargate in a serious context at a point where the US started making spaceships trying to fill a galactic power vacuum, what they choose to actually do was a bunch of one off bottle episodes in a ship that was in the middle of nowhere, leaving all the great and interesting stuff that was going on with Earth, US Colonial expansion, manifest destiny, Human dominance in the galaxy off screen. Which sucked.
When you see someone in a thread making the same canned responses over and over, click their name, click view forum posts, and see if they are a troll. Then don't feed them."Gamer" is not a bad word. I identify as a gamer. When calling out those who persecute and harass, the word you're looking for is "asshole." @_DonAdams

Semi-related: if I were to start watching star gate which series should I start with?
