Critic Reviews for Stargate Universe: Season 2

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
