Stargate Universe The New Coke

Stargate Universe Cancelled:
The series has 10 episodes remaining in its second season and Syfy will air these episodes as planned next Spring.

The fault lies not in our stars but in ourselves. -William Shakespeare
       Brad Wright would like people to believe SGU was cancelled due to some kind of conspiracy. By SG-1 fans, Stargate Atlantis fans, or maybe the C.I.A. . Executive producer and co-creator Brad Wright said - “I think getting moved on the schedule has hurt us. And the fact that some of the fans that liked SG-1 and Atlantis were so angry that they have deliberately hurt us, which is unfortunate.”

      It had nothing to do with a conspiracy by the fans. It had to do with one thing and one thing only. The fact that Brad Wright has his head stuck so far up his rear end, he is unable to see when he has made a mistake. Do you guys remember New Coke? Back in 1985 Coca-Cola changed the formula of Coke.  And everyone hated New Coke.  So what did the company do.  They admitted they made a mistake and returned to the original formula.

      Brad Wright changed the formula of Stargate, and the fans did not like the new  formula.  So what did Brad Wright do? Did he say OK I made a mistake and will change it back? No, he said the fans need to just shut up and watch  it.  He said , I do not need you guys, you are the wrong demographic .

      Not Stargate and not a good show .

      Stargate SG1 and Atlantis were both family friendly shows, SGU  is not. Many people were sitting with their kids to watch the first episode and got shocked by what they saw. SGU was less Sci-Fi  and more soap opera. With too much whose the baby 's daddy  drama. And Destiny’s true mission? Well it's just true far out there.

  The show being cancelled is no reflection on the cast and crew.

      Myself and many others  disliked some of the characters  of the show.  But not the actors  they played them. No love for Camille Wrayor or Chloe Armstrong. But great respect for the actors that played them. Both actors did a great job. But the storyline for there characters was just not there. And the people who created the Destiny ship did a great job.  And there are many cast and crew members whose name I do not know. All you guys did your job well.

       And if I my I would like to give a shout out.

      To Julia Benson aka 2nd Lt. Vanessa James and Jennifer Spence aka Dr. Lisa Park. You both have many fans out there. The  sex scenes  were too  too graphic for the show. But I know as actors you have no say in that.Vanessa James and Lisa Park are very welcome new members to the Stargate Family and hope to see you both again in the future.
