Stargate Universe s02e20 “Gauntlet:the series finale”

Well all good things must come to an end, so sadly so it must be with Stargate Universe.  As fans, the panel that joins Logan each week can be critical, but that is because we love science fiction.  In all the reviews and recaps I have done on this show, I have never once felt that the actors who were involved…Robert Carlyle, Alaina Huffman, Brian J. Smith, David Blue, Louis Ferreira, Elyse Levesque, Jamil Walker Smith, Ming-Na and all the rest, did a poor job in performance they presented.  The set designers, special effects artists, and crew also deserve standing ovations. While I do wonder about some of the writing of the series and the common sense of some plots, I also understand that the writers had their hands ties by the network. And due to the insane business plots of the network, the Stargate franchise has come to an end after 14 years.

The real fault in SGU’s cancellation falls directly in the lap of NBC Universal and SyFy.  Syfy has taken a thought that scifi won’t get good ratings, and is doing their best to ruin the brand that is well loved.  With the grievous error of bring wrestling to the SyFy network and playing musical chairs with television show, this only proves that the network would be more efficiently ruin by 2 chimps in short shorts. Then again, maybe the network is being run that way.

This episode joining us on the air are The Squid Lord, Rand al’Thor, Nelal Hurcran and entropy11. Tanith, Scottishpearl, and a number of guest joined the chat action, as we all shared our thoughts of the finale, which sadly was not one of the best. What can you expect from a cliffhanger, anyways. We also touch on alternate endings and some of the brainstorming plots the writers had

It is also the end of the SciFi Edition for a while. I have decided to take at least a 2 month hiatus until the July premier of the series Warehouse 13, Eureka, and the new series Alphas. The SciFi Edition was the brain child of Dr. Robert White and we decided to use the already established format of TMO to air the recaps. With Dr. White stepping aside due to his new pastoral obligations, I am not sure if we will return with the Saturday night show. The main Sunday night edition The Media Outsiders will continue as normal each week.

In honor and farewell to a excellent and beloved cast, we present this final picture of the cast of Stargate Universe

Stargate Universe s02e18 and e19 “Epilogue” and “Blockade”

In the penultimate recap of the SyFy original series Stargate Universe, we again recap two episodes, “Epilogue” and “Blockade”. As we wrap up the descendants of Destiny storyline and continue to flee from the drones, what does the panel think of these final episodes??  The later half of the episode turned into more of a heated debate on where the series might have gone wrong, and more importantly what SyFy did wrong in relations to the Stargate franchise.

Joining us on the air was TheSquidLord, RickWall, Jhuddle, and EbonStorm, with our beloved producer mballie, scottishpearl, and nelal hurcran in the chatroom.

Next week we say goodbye to Stargate Universe and to the franchise as a whole. Logan will also have a special message to SyFy at the end and a final announcement.

Stargate Universe s2e17 “Common Decent”

It is a well known fact that TheSquidLord doesn’t have a lot of good things to say about the writers of Stargate Universe. He likes the acting, but it is some of the thought processes of the writers. This episode changed that. Download to hear what our resident critic has to say in detail.

Stargate Universe s2e14 and e15 “Hope” and “Seizure”

Again, we recapped two episodes, “Hope” and then followed up with the one Logan has been waiting a long time for…”Seizure”. In Seizure we see the return of Logan’s favorite Stargate character Dr. Rodney McKay played by the wonderful David Hewlett. We also get Robert Picardo’s Mr. Woolsey and we see Dr. Amanda Perry played by the beautiful Kathleen Munroe. SquidLord even had a Ginn attack. Download the episode to hear what we felt about the actual shows.

SyFy’s Being Human

Did you hear the one about the vampire, werewolf and ghost who entered a bar???   What sounds like the start of a bad joke is the basis of SyFy’s newest import from the United Kingdom, Being Human. Tonight we discuss the North American version starring Sam Witwer, Sam Hungington and Meaghan Rath and how it compares with the UK show of the same name.  What is it also about the US copying shows from the UK?  We are pleased to also have our own UK resident DaveAC on the call tonight.

NBC’s The Cape

This episode Logan and panel take a look at the new NBC series The Cape starring David Lyons, Keith David, and Summer Glau. Lyons plays a honest cop framed for a crime he didn’t commit (start TV tropes now) and then learns to use a special cape to fight the corruption in fictional Palm City.

Logan and the call-in panel of FlickGuy, The Big Leneski, and The SquidLord discuss if this well written and fun series will be canceled because (A) it’s on NBC, and (B) has Summer Glau in it. Download to hear the debate and discussion and enjoy.
