We are on a ship, but we have no idea where we are in relation to Earth.
This is the Voyager of the Stargate franchise: a spaceship-load of unlikely companions is lost in space, trying to find a way home. I’ve never seen a full episode of any previous Stargate series, so I can’t really make any comparisons, but word has it this new spinoff is “edgier.” This, I assume, is why the characters are always shouting at each other, dying, having sex, and, on occasion, turning out to be lesbians.
Aside from the sometimes sensationalized “realism,” SGU has the feel of a pretty decent show still finding its groove. I don’t know that they’ve won me over at this point, but the series is probably worth checking in on from time to time.
My Grade: B+
