Stargate Universe Cloverdale S02E05 (Syfy)

I’ve never been a Stargate fan. I’ve tried watching SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis, but never really found them compelling enough. I actually like the original movie with Kurt Russell, but the series never really interested me that much. One of my friends recently bought all of the seasons cheaply. I thought about watching them, but ran out of time. Scalzi is a creative consultant on this series and it looks pretty interesting, so I’ve decided to give it a go.

Now, before any bitching and hating starts― too late, it’s already started, I haven’t bothered to read, review, or watch any of the Stargate series, and I’m not going to. I’ve watched a couple of episodes and didn’t continue. I tried Stargate Atlantis, but didn’t like it. My friend told me that starting season 4, SG-1 was really good. I can’t really comment on that as I stopped watching the series after a few episodes.

Basically, I’m a new viewer of Stargate, but I’m not a science-fiction novice. It puts me in an interesting spot about reviewing this show. My point of view is from someone who hasn’t watched any of the SG shows, so this review and recap should be interesting to those of you who haven’t watched SG before. For the others, leave some comments and start a discussion.

Is the show good or bad? Read on to find out more.

Scott is infected by something and the only way to save him is by using some of Chloe’s blood, which will infect him with something else.

Greer and Scott are on a bus that arrives in Cloverdale. This is just a hallucination. Scott is on a planet and his arm infected.

Scott is out again. They are moving him. Rush wants some medical supplies. The organism is very contagious, so they can’t bring him aboard. Nothing helps him and the organism has spread into his blood.

They make a barricade and start using flame throwers to repel the plant-based creatures. Chloe purposely infects herself so they would let her stay on the planet.

Nothing happens to Chloe. What the aliens did to her made her immune. She’s also healing it very fast. They decide to make a blood transfusion to heal Scott.

They manage to get through. Young places Scott in indefinite quarantine. What’s been done to Chloe now has passed on to Scott.

  1. I may watch SGU, but first I am waiting for MGM, Spyglass and SyFy to give the Green light for SGA Extinction.

  2. SGU has gotten better this season, but it’s still not that good. It’s definitely watchable, but yep, not much more to say about that. Wish another Star Trek series was in the making or something like that.
