Good find!

More shameless public masturbation bought to you by SGU's marketing department.

Interesting results from Gayteworld;

http://www.gateworld.net/cgi-bin/stargatepoll.cgi?what=results&q=149

So, my question is, when all SGU lovers cried "Foul" and labeled us haters, how come the Votes are now reflecting a whopping 41% saying, "No I'm not Interested"?

Also on point of debate:  "Do we, as fans of Stargate or any television show, not give the writers enough credit for conceiving the character, writing the dialogue, and sending him or her on adventures"

I Counter with  Do writers, the driving force behind Stargate or any television show, take responsibility for conceiving  crappy characters, writing lame dialogue, and sending fans into frenzy, resulting in high blood pressure levels, premature baldness from tearing hair out, and even blindness from gauging out ones eye's? As Her Royal Majesty would decree, "We are not Amused"...

I bet the people that fronted the money to make all the DVDs and Blue Ray disks are far from amused that less than 50 people in a 1000 are prepared to buy them.
How much money do you think they have lost on that deal?
If we all say that we would buy a full set and then dont bother we could put the boot in further and hasten the demise of this fetid pile of excrement due to lost revenue!

Exactly.  You know what's cracking me up the most?  Only 17% of the 1003 people polled are saying "yes" to buying the SGU Season 1.0 DVD.  I'll say that one more time  - ONLY SEVENTEEN PERCENT (17%) WANT IT - Aaahaha!!  LMAO.  

That means that 83% of the people polled are not currently committed to buying it, and that's after massive promotion/advertising.

And, this is at Gateworld.  You know, the Yahoo-We-Looove-TPTB-and-Support-Whatever-They-Want-Us-To-Support website.  And, like you said, a full 41% aren't going to take this puppy on DVD if it's one-set, two-set, discount-set, blue-set.  Aaahaa.

I can just hear Patsy Cline in the background, singing "Who's Sorry Now".

LMAO, and since there was no real SciFi content in there, it should've been marked .05, and come with a cootie warning.

I downloaded the extended pilot from torrent, I gotta see if I can use some of the stuff for new alternate ending video...I plan to make it seem that way they didn't make it through before planet exploded....and it will end with O'Neil saying nobody came through on Earth etc....and Carter will say they didn't go anywhere.

EDIT: For those who are interested what is in this new extended pilot so new and great, probably only two scenes. Well, I have watched only half of it so far. But there is scene where Rush talks with O'Neil through the comm stones and O'Neil pwns him. That's about it so far.

This dvd/bd situation pretty much sums up Syfy as a whole.

Producing half assed mediocre products and spinning it like it's the new best thing.

Obviously there is also some scene with Rush suspecting there may be some spy and talking about Luccian Alliance(i have yet to see the scene, watched only half of this extended pilot and going through pain doing so). I guess that is the other biggest difference in this extended pilot, but yeah.

EDIT: I saw the scene finally, it takes place in just before they try to dial Earth, Rush is talking with Eli, because he asked him what is that Lucian Alliance anyway and how coud they possibly know the position of Icarus Base.

More golden Amazon reviews just from the past few days:

the execution of it is poor. The acting is bad! The writing is bad! The special effects, what special effects!!!

This is not the worst sci-fi show ever, that honor goes to the re-make of Kolchak (Spotnitz and crew).

Stargate Universe is the SECOND worst sci-fi show ever and they should pay us to watch it.

This is not your Father's Stargate. This is your Uncle's Stargate, the one that drinks a lot and has dodgy taste in television programmes. SGU desperately wants to be the new Cool Kid on the SciFi block and sit with BSG and Firefly at the Cool Kids table, but unfortunately it's stuck in the corner smelling slightly of wee and wearing the season before last clothes.

Bernard Steenis wrote
Probably one of the worst sci-fi ever produced.
Nothing, but bla bla, sex and tears and boring relationships between pathetic characters.
It's definitely not Stargate, It's definitely not even sci-fi.
Don't waste money and/or time, better connect nothing to your screen and watch white noise.

wow, that was the best part! They nearly slashed Oneill's part by 2/3!
They also cut a critical part to attract them new fans and fill them on the Lucian alliance. So, you delete 2 important scenes, one screen with RDA, which is a reason why this franchise got a good footing and if you wanted to get new fans, congrats, you left them clueless. You couldn't have cut the random sex and the "we're not suppose to be here" "I just wanna go home" crap...o' for crying out loud

1.0 out of 5 stars
SGU, the DOWNFALL...has turned ROBOT MONSTER into a Sci-Fi classic!, February 21, 2010
By Sheldon Kaplan  - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)  

One real great thing about "SGU" is it has elevated many an old Sci-Fi 'B' movie! I watched the first half of this debacle of a TV show in disbelief hoping that at some point there would be a turn toward hope. Instead it continued down that deep dark wormhole to nowhere.

There are so many other reason's to spend $27.99, heck if you want garbage for free, just go down to your local dump. The people, or is it ego's, behind this disaster should take the nose plugs out and smell what they really created (or destroyed) here. One of the best Sci-Fi franchises just smacked into a wall going light speed.

I wouldn't even want this if given to me for free, it caused me such pain to watch. There are so many other soap operas on TV, why watch this? The only way to get them on track is not to buy this tripe! They can avoid Stargate fans opinions of this show, but they can not ignore sales of this product. Sales will make them gut or end this travesty of a "Suck-Fi" TV series. Is the name of this DVD set Stargate SG-U: 1.0 because when they were writing this thing they all had a blood alcohol level of 1.0?

Where are the Ori or Goa'uld when we need them the most?
