SGU does Groundhog Day — in space!

Young may command the crew, but Rush continues to command the ship, and yet still no one has made a decision. We like the direction SGU has been going lately, but last night's episode started to make us worry again. » 11/03/10 6:28pm 11/03/10 6:28pm

SGU: Why Doing Absolutely Nothing Is Sometimes The Best Plan Of Action

After two action-packed episodes that both sparked a new life into the series (only to quickly crush it with the furious clicking of the old reset button), this weekend's SGU was a welcome respite for character growth. » 4/18/10 3:59pm 4/18/10 3:59pm
