Episodes like this get sci-fi series canceled
5 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Do you want to know why SGU was yanked after only two seasons? It's because of low budget, boring soap opera episodes like this one.

What were Wright and Cooper trying to do with SGU--make it a Grey's Anatomy in space? How stupid.

Most avid sci-fi fans are men. When you turn a great franchise like Stargate into a prime time soap opera, you lose even your most loyal viewers, and the demographic you're trying to reach aren't going to be interested because when it comes to a knockoff of Grey's Anatomy and the real thing, women will choose the real thing every single time.

Don't get me wrong--the acting in this episode is top notch. The music is good. It's just that this is not the genre for this kind of drama.

To the creators of the next nascent sci-fi franchise, here's a clue: Your target audience is men, who want to see alien encounters, space battles, evil villains, spectacular effects and heroes saving the universe.

Episodes like this one (and others that litter season 2) tank the ratings and kill the interest of the demographic you need most. Ugh.
