Critic Reviews for Stargate Universe Season 2

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

Unfortunately, it wasn't quite the weekly light adventurism that many Stargate fans were hoping for, but it's left us with... a cliffhanger that will never be resolved, giving a slightly bittersweet ending to a compelling, spectacular and thrilling ride.

May 18, 2018 | Full Review…

The series still has rough spots, and I don't know that it's even bothered to differentiate some of these characters from each other...but it's doing enough things right that I'll probably keep an eye on it for a while.

Apr 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Believe me, I studied the "previously on..." recap with intense concentration. But it was so incoherent, it was almost as if it was designed to alienate new viewers.

May 18, 2018 | Full Review…

What remains are two seasons of a show whose potential seems virtually untapped. This could have been Stargate's shining moment.

Apr 17, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The premiere of season 2 serves its purpose of maintaining the drama and intensity we've come to expect from each episode of Stargate Universe...

May 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Many of the episodes--while pushing forward the week-to-week narrative--lean a little too far in the direction of standalone stories, really only moving forward one or two beats in the overall story, killing any sense of momentum.

Apr 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Last night, we said goodbye to Stargate Universe. In a strange way, the finale was almost parallel to the manner in which this series was canned - the show ended right as it started to get good.

Apr 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Universe's gritty atmosphere and desperate characters gave us something new, even as it expanded on the Ancient lore established way back in the SG-1 pilot.

Apr 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Stargate Universe has returned, and with a bang too.

Apr 17, 2018 | Full Review…

... the best old-school science fiction on TV during its brief odyssey in 2009-2011 but it was cancelled after struggling for viewers over two seasons.... At least it ends on a satisfying note of mystery and potential.

Audience Reviews for Stargate Universe: Season 2

  • Dec 23, 2019
    Not the Stargate we wanted. A sad way for the franchise to end.
  • Dec 06, 2019
    Why, oh why, did they cancel this?! It was just getting started!
  • Jan 29, 2019
    The adult stargate I wanted.
  • Jan 08, 2019
    The second season was so much better than the first.
  • Sep 26, 2015
    Season 2 of "Stargate Universe" was extremely well done and was a lot more fast paced then the first season. The First season did its job well by introducing everyone and also the ship and explaining how Destiny is barely working. Now the 2nd season is here with pretty much all the characters stories told and the ship functioning a lot better and more time to gate travel, meet new species, threats and beautiful planets. They are now at a stage where they are expanding the story in a very exciting way. We are yet again seeing some great appearances from the previous shows such as Richard Dean Anderson, Michael Shanks and David Hewlett. The Visuals are still great and really stunning and the action sequences are very well done. It was really sad to hear that "Stargate Universe got cancelled as it was just starting to really explore the stories and everyone was settled into there roles well. It was a big waste and a big mistake to cancel.
  • May 30, 2014
    Stargate Universe takes everything you loved about SG1 and Atlantis, then throws away the fun, lore, love, and action. It's Grey's Anatomy in space, and unless your a 40-55 year old woman, look elsewhere for scifi.
  • Nov 16, 2013
    The grandeur and emotional themes of this cult classic series were grossly under-realized in only two seasons. Another case of quality television cancelled in favor of easy money.
