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.
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.
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.
What remains are two seasons of a show whose potential seems virtually untapped. This could have been Stargate's shining moment.
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...
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.
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.
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.
Audience Reviews for Stargate Universe: Season 2
Dec 27, 2020It's fine but it's clear the show was ending. I'd pass
Aug 13, 2020Season 2 i just finished & man that was a really bad ending, nearly as bad as atlantis. It sticks to the whole "Smart man bad" method of thinking but it tries some new things every now & then that make it a bit interesting before they resume on "Smart man bad." Just when things are getting good, it ends. I am almost sorry wasting a week or two watching this series.
Feb 27, 2020I don't understand why they didn't have a third season?
Dec 23, 2019Not the Stargate we wanted. A sad way for the franchise to end.
Dec 06, 2019Why, oh why, did they cancel this?! It was just getting started!
Jan 29, 2019The adult stargate I wanted.
Jan 08, 2019The second season was so much better than the first.
Sep 26, 2015Season 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, 2014Stargate 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, 2013The 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.
