I have to agree with you about the gratuitous sex scene from episode one. It used to be that we could watch Stargate with my daughter and nephews in the room - not anymore if they keep that up.

I loved Robert Carlyle from the "Full Monty" so I was happy to see they got him for the show. Although I can't figure out what that man is thinking - especially after the ending of "Light."

So far I do like the show, but it's a far cry from SG-1 or Atlantis. It feels so claustrophobic since almost every ep takes place on the ship. I understand that is exactly what the writers were going for, though.

I like Eli, but I think sometimes they try a little too hard for him to be the funny one. Mostly his character works, though, and I really like David Blue.

I'm very intrigued by the Dr. Rush character, and I am compelled to watch just to see what this guy is thinking! I'd never heard of Robert Carlyle before SGU, and so far I'm impressed.

My biggest complaint is the gratuitous sex scene from episode one. I'm not a prude, I have no problem with the characters being sexual, but that scene really seemed way over the top to me. It reminded me a little bit of the early eps of Star Trek Enterprise, when everyone was slathering each other with that anti-alien-disease goop. In their little teeny-tiny shorty-shorts. Of course, Scott Bakula in shorty-shorts is not necessarily a bad thing! emoticon

Sorry to write such a long post; trying to catch up after being gone so long! (I've been sick)

The bottom line is I like SGU and I'm really interested to see where it goes. Long live Stargate!

I've been enjoying while keeping in mind that it's still extreamly early in the show. I just can't wait to see what happends and where they take it!!

I'm not sure about Darkness. It was nice to hear from the crew but not much else was happening. Eli I think is going to improve there's alot that can be done with his character.

Someone mention (I think on Gateworld) that Darkness and Light was suppose to be one episode, so that could explain the thin storyline.

Eli is hilarious, but keep in mind he's young yet...they'll have him grow a bit, I'm sure. And our medic got "stuck" with everyone else...

Thank goodness for SyFy Rewind so I could watch the episodes. www.syfy.com/universe/

Wishing they would do more with Eli's character - make him grow-up a little or something. He seems to be our Jack O'Neil / McKay as far as humor goes which is nice but can't stand his immaturity.

They do have me wondering what is up with the medic - what is her little secret as to why she quit and how she got stuck sticking around.
