Stargate Universe – Season 2 Episodes 11-14

Their not many episodes left where i can give my thought on new Stargate episodes, so i’m doing them all.

Now for the first 4 episode of the 2.5 season.

Deliverance 2-11 

A great shot of Matthew and Chloe

The first episode back after a hell of a long mid season brake. This episode pick up the second after Resurgence left off. Ina  simple form it was action packed and marked the end of the Chloe alien ark (or so it seems). It also shows the blue aliens for the time since the season 1 episode  Lost; well the real them, they have been in flashbacks/visions a number of times since then. Lot’s of action in this one with a fight with the drones, i think where this episode falls a little flat is with the death of  Ursini, sure they may have been the last of the species, but i felt nothing when the blew them selfs up. It was made up for by some great scenes of Chloe and Matthew meeting the blue aliens, for the first time in a friendly situation. I’d like to know more about the alien race that created the drones, maybe we will, but with so few episode left i’m not holding my breath. All in all a top way for the show to start up again.

Twin Destines 2-12 

What did rush just do?

With the news that this will the last ever season of stargate, this will most likely the last ever episode written by the great Brad Wright. He did not let him self down. A classic stargate episode, because of the great sci-fi element of the episode. Much like the first season episode Time it starts with what the fuck moment there are two rushes. Through flashback (of what is to come) you learn of the failed attempt of the crews to dial back to earth from inside of a sun. It’s always nice to see the stargate used in different ways, and dialing from the destiny to another destiny was very cool. There are two big characters deaths in this episode, both are cop outs though.

Alliances 2-13 

Behind you

Defiantly the weakest episode of a strong start to the 2.5 season. It had it’s moments though, it was nice to see earth again as well as the old goa’uld cargo ship. It was a little slow for my taste. It started with Wray and Greer, at each other throats. But under some extreme situations they grow closer, i had to admit it was nice to see Ronald not being the super marine he normal was. It was a very dark story, with the two people who body swapped with Greer and Wray, been exposed to deadly radiation while not even in their body. So it was not about trying to save them, but that they were already dead, no hope.

Hope 2-14

I love this photo, of my two favorite characters

Those odd times that the B-story to an episode is lot’s better than main story, it normally means it a bad episode. Not this time, i think Hope could take the place of my favorite episode of Stargate or at least very close. It took my favorite character’s Volker and Greer and put them it situation. It’s funny, touching, sad, happy and most of all it’s Hope. The  photo above just sums the episode up; beautiful. We see the new hydroponics lab in it’s full glory (it’s the eden project in space) and it looks great. There is a very classic stargate moment, with Volker on the operating table and the theme to the 2001 space oddsey playing, it all goes wrong after that.  Not forgetting the A story, it was interesting to find out more about the communication stones.

That’s is all for the aired episode.
But i wanted to finish on something else Stargate related; Joseph Mallozzi said on his blog (http://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/“Gauntlet, in particular, is very touching and its conclusion will no doubt you leave you…among many other things…frustrated, incredulous, outraged, offended, annoyed, vexed, saddened, distressed, bitter, aghast, irritated, unsatisfied, pissed-off, melancholy, miserable, confused, furious, dejected, riled, shocked, heartsick, angry, surprised, exasperated, indignant, enraged, despondent, bewildered, dismayed, incensed, stunned, and grief-stricken.” Gauntlet is going to be the last ever episode of Stargate Universe and it’s just so annoying that a show that i love (yes love) will get a unsuitable ending, i for one will most likely feel all of these feeling.

Random things and my dam nose

It’s been a very random week, some things I have done were planed a couple of gigs, EOM and pendulum. Some things were not a random night out and seeing an old friend someone who I have know since I was very young, but not seen a lot of for a while.  Amongst all of this, my stupid (large) nose is becoming more and more like snot factory. I have always had a sensitive nose and a big one for that matter. It’s stupid really I believe I have an allergy to dust, actually I believe I have an allergy to everything small (dog hair too) that can enter through my nose ,it’s infuriating.  I manage through it, i have no choice.

It’s a confusing time for me at the moment!
You know when you are so sure about something and then something happens to make you think the another way, but then another thing happens and that makes you think the original way, well that happened at the start of this week and now I am sick to death about thinking about it. My mind fuck up as it, does not want to think any more of this problem, but my poor mind is confused and my mind likes a good puzzle. Right now my brain is more confused than a epileptic pig going to it’s slaughter (for some reason I thought people may related to a dying pig more than my mind). It’s not a hard life being a teenage boy in fact it’s pretty piss easy. What it is though being 18 and a boy, is a constant changing vat of chemicals (in my brain) making me stressed and confused.  I honestly don’t know what is up with me. One min or one year i’m outgoing at college some people and i’d like to think funny, and the next I can struggle to talk to person i have know for years (at least at first it’s always awkward with me). THANK GOD for booze it did save me a little that night. I know there is reasons for my awkwardness.

So all I can do is sit writing this blog of mine and hopefully later today have a nice little writing session of my book (I have hit a little mental wall, well it is my first attempt at a book). I do this while worrying stupid amounts about things that I might be reading toi much in to some things.

Ahhhh fuck it, I have got some Keane on and i’m going to relax and write and hope that for a few moments i don’t think about it.
Wish me luck.

Also don’t be shocked if my blog looks completely different later today i’m experimenting with themes and hopefully a home page.
