Has anyone else watched Stargate Universe? I finally got around to downloading and watching today. I was always going to - I know that there's been a ton of negative publicity, but SG1 was one of my favourite shows (I own every single episode on DVD), and while Atlantis got annoying, the first 2.5 seasons were at least entertaining.

Thoughts on SGU: Up until the last five minutes I found it fairly blah, but then at the end it became more like proper Stargate and I got all excited. Other thoughts:

- JACK! DANIEL! SAM! WALTER! MORE JACK AND SAM! And the ship was called the Hammond, I love that so much.
- I love Robert Carlyle and everything he does.
- The young lieutenant? No idea what his name is, but I liked him and he seemed interesting, with an actual personality and everything.
- Also liked Chloe. Though I'm not sure I'd have worn a leopard-skin print mini-dress while visiting a secret military base on another planet.
- The medic seemed a bit useless. Was that bouncy thing supposed to be CPR? And I'm not sure crying on your patients helps them.
- Eli annoyed me. I disliked him, and found the whole idea (recruit people through computer games?) ridiculous.
- Could have done without all the flashbacks.
- Renewed my resolve to learn some kind of useful skill, so that if I'm ever stranded on a space ship a billion light-years from Earth, I won't head the list of people to be sacrificed.

Overall, 6/10.

In other news, yay Arsenal! (Just don't ask me about Falkirk...)

I haven't watched it yet (and considering I live at the bottom of the world, it will probably never make it to our tv screens!), but I heard about all the crapola surrounding the show.

And ARSENAL! That was one of the best performances this whole season, and I loved seeing so many different names on the scoresheet!

I've got no idea if it's reached our screens either, I just downloaded it :).

I know! I love the fact that one of our top scorers is a centre-back. And everyone who'd been criticising Cesc can now STFU, because he was just brilliant.

I liked Eli - and as long as the writers don't turn him into some kind of superhero who always saves the day, I think I'll keep liking him.

It kind of reminded me of the Lost premiere, actually, with the flashbacks introducing each character.

I have never watched Lost, so wouldn't know!

God, I would hate that. I know it's only been one episode but he just really annoyed me, and I don't generally like that kind of character - the bumbling gamer-boy who proves to be a sekrit genius. But I will try to give him a chance :).
