I actually like the stones. The idea of having the characters as ghosts in their own lives is full of possibilities, since no-one gets any closure. It also creates a military chain of command that is basically all bark and just a tiny bit of bite. I agree that it's been used in ways that haven't always shown the device to its best advantage, but it gives the show a unique twist that does pay off from time to time.

I agree. The Communication Stones. Must. Go. They are a clear plot device just to have the characters interact withy Earth-bound characters---but the writers have done nothing interesting with the ability. Hello, it's a "Lost in Space" show...if we wanted to see a show about life on earth we'd watch Stargate: Atlantis or something.

Looks awesome. I am anxiously awaiting the return after the unbearably LONG hiatus (Syfy screwed that up if you ask me).

Here's the thing I don't get. Col. Young would have had to have access to a lot of the mission reports from both the SG-1 and Atlantis teams, yes? Thus, unless he was a complete idiot, he would have had to notice his universe's predilection to fucking around with humans gallivanting across space. So where in his head was the idea that leaving the amoral scientist alive with an alien ship and a now burning need for revenge a GOOD idea. I mean, killing him I could understand. Or hell, tying him up to die of starvation. But leaving him alive and unbound next to an alien ship? That's like pissing directly on Murphy's Law and then laughing about it with your buddies over a few drinks. Nothing good can come of it.

Worst thing 'bout SG. mmm would also those aliens speak English? 'cos you know, the ones in Pegasus did it, and a good one at it.

dammit, it also happened when I first watched the first SGU trailer and then the 10 episodes launched so far were.... .... .... not too good... .... .... but man, I'm looking forward to this series. Really can't wait any longer.

The trailer has possibilities. It looks good enough that I'm tempted to give it another chance. But they have GOT to lose those damn stones. They're lost and on their own out there ... except when they're back on earth bedhopping or going clubbing? Sorry, no. I have zero interest in Stargate:90210.

Didn't SyFy used to have a show with this exact name?

I wonder if by "acting and special effects" he really means "seeing his name in the credits".
