Deadline is reporting that MGM plans to reboot the Stargate franchise with a trilogy of movies. No details yet, obviously. I’d rather get some sort of conclusion to Stargate Universe, but maybe that’s just me.

Stargate Universe Cancelled
SyFy just tweeted (twittered?) that this current season of SGU will be its last. The Stargate franchise has been airing on SyFy (well it was Sci-Fi back then) since 2002.
I’ll have to do that math, is Stargate the longest running franchise? The original Stargate show holds the record for longest running Sci-Fi series, but I don’t know if the three series add up to more than Star Trek’s 28 seasons. I don’t think so, but it’s still a good long legacy that I know a lot of fans will be very sad to see go.
How about you? Going to miss it? Time for it to go? Never saw it?
Stargate: Universe Discussion – “Justice”
Finally, an episode where they don’t spend 3/4 of the show back on Earth, courtesy of the MacGuffin plot stones. This week, we have an apparent murder and a little bit of honest-to-goodness character development.
Stargate: Universe Discussion – “Life”
The crew finds a (plot) device that’s about as likely to get them home as anything Voyager found in the first season. Y’know, the problem with “here’s a way home” in a show where the premise of the show is “you’re a long way from home” is that even though the characters don’t know it won’t work, we know it won’t.
Stargate: Universe Discussion – “Time”
This week, the Destiny finds an apparent picture of their future, and it ain’t pretty. Surprisingly, no wisecrack Internet critics are involved in this vision of horror.
Stargate: Universe Discussion – “Earth”
Every episode title so far has been about how the people aboard Destiny are running short of whatever the title is. Does that mean, this week, there’s a shortage of potting soil?
Stargate: Universe Discussion – “Water”
Next week’s episode: “McDonald’s.” The crew is jonesing for Chicken McNuggets.
Okay, I’ll quit making fun of one-word titles for at least one week. In the meantime, the Destiny is out of both water and Diet Pepsi.
Stargate: Universe Discussion – Light
Nobody on board the Destiny has an excuse not to have a good suntan. How will the crew survive a ship that’s flying right into a star?
Stargate: Universe Discussion – “Darkness”
The Destiny is about a zillion years old – maybe the reason the ship’s running low on power is because it’s old and falling apart? Discuss the new episode here.
Stargate Universe Discussion: “Air, Part 3”
When last we left our intrepid heroes, they were stranded several galaxies away, and about to walk through a suspiciously familiar circle thing. This week, there’s an awful lot of sand and a few creepy visions. What say you about the last part of the pilot?
