The most anticipated new scifi series this season is Stargate Universe. The premier is a two-hour movie event on the SyFy channel on October 2 at 9 p.m. As Battlestar Galactica was my all-time favorite series, the fact that this one is touted as BSG-style, only better, has me wanting to see what all the fuss is about.
“Stargate Universe has brought a new and fresh look to the long running franchise and has used a relatively new style to carry it: dark sci-fi. Many will want to compare this new series, because of that style, to other successful shows like Battlestar Galactica.

I am SO excited for this show! I love Stargate, and am excited for new characters and enemies. To be honest, I haven’t seen Battlestar Galactica, but I do think it looks interesting. I have seen every SG-1 episode, and a ton of Stargate: Atlantis, and I’ve already set up my DVR to record every episode of SGU.
