  • Welcome back SGU.

    8.0
    First episode back and we finally see the SG team back in control of the ship. The conclusion does feel a bit rushed and while not quite as dramatic as the previous episodes, it's a believable outcome in the end. Johansen's return to the planet sets up a few interesting questions for the future but slows the action down way too much - at least this means we're saved the boredom of 'how do I raise a kid on this ship?' story lines.

    It's going to be interesting to see what happens with the remaining Lucian Alliance members, but the almost retcon-like insertion of 'rentavillian' Robert Knepper (Samuel in Heroes) hints to him playing the bad guy to the more moderate Varro in the future.

    Despite my quibles with SGU it's good to have it back, it's the only space-based SF on TV right now and while it might not be up there with the greats, it sometimes shows hints that it could be. Looking forward to the season to come.
