In SF math, Does Lost + Battlestar Galactica = SGU: Stargate Universe? The new Syfy show started last night, and we liked it quite a bit. But what did you think? Use the comments below to share your thoughts.
I was mostly meh but, unlike Defying Gravity, I didn't have to fast-forward through bits to keep interest. Well, OK, I did a little - when it got all talky after Senator Annoying took one for the team.
Speaking of annoying - from one minute saying "Don't you dare open any of those alien storage lockers" to "Geeze, the oxygen scrubbers have run down to nothing" Um, did anyone think maybe the writing on the boxes is "Honest Filb's O2 Scrubbers. Return for Recycle"?
Hmm, Rush weeping over a photo while some soprano warbled "Vissi d'arte" (I've lived for art, I've lived for love.) Of course, this may not be significant as productions tend to choose opera that sounds right rather than makes sense; hence many cinematic lovers kissing to "O Mio Babbino Caro" ("Oh my darling DADDY" Oedipus wrecks everything.)
