    Why’d you have to compare it to SGU? Not so sure now, I was hoping for more of the spirit of SG1 and SGA. A bit of humor with the drama would go a long way towards restoring Syfy t Sci Fi’s glory days….

    There was NO REASON to go in a new direction, where Stargate was left hanging in dozens of directions. Who ever funded this (NBC/Universal/20th Century Fox/ MGM/ etc.) Should have gone with what has been requested NON STOP for over four years! NEW STARGATE! If this “Dark Matter” show is great, then it will fall short of PHENOMENAL, which is what Stargate was. .. I’m glad the writers of SG have a Science Fiction based income again, but aside from that, I (like MILLIONS of others) are not very happy about this at all. Please give us back our gate travel. That’s it. J.S.

    I will give this a chance but as the other comments have stated, I too want my Stargate back on tv.

    After the way they treated SGA and the fans of the show i swore to never see anothe show of Mallozzi, i will keep my promise, it’s a shame for the actors who did nothing to us but i hope that the fans of the stargate franchise wil remember how bretayed we were after SGA sacrifice under Mallozzi and Bright behaviour.

    A cross between a dumb “Space Odyssey 2001” (except Hal has a mental age of about 10 and wears tight pants) and Stargate Universe.
    This isn’t SIFI, this is a melodramatic soap opera with guns and tight clothing to distract viewers from a lack of character depth (or an actual plot) and all set in a badly light space ship.

    Darren, I personally blame Syfy and Wright for SGA’s cancellation so they could make SGU which sunk the franchise on television. Joe M. was kind of a jerk to the fans at times, but I don’t think he wanted SGA to end at 5 seasons either. But that is one reason why I’m not supporting Syfy with my viewership any longer. Get a series with Joe F, Rachel, David H (not even gonna think about Jason M, he’s an A lister now) and some of the others from SGA as an apology and I would be tempted to come back. Not before. So many years and I find I’m still bitter. 🙁

    Stargate, this clearly is not. And so far, I have the same issues I’ve had with SGU. Why? Let me give the characters nicknames for a sec.

    One aka BlandGuy
    Two aka BossyBuffette
    Three aka 44 (his IQ)
    Four aka Bruce Lee
    Five aka Kaylees Clone
    Six aka The Good Soul
    A robot, that for some reason everyone calls a she.

    Show has me “love” it right from the get-go. One tries to restore life support, Two runs in and beats him to a pulp, and later just says, “You know why!”. So we are just to assume that, hey, he asked for it, must have done -something- to deserve it, right? Of course, she’s beating him up because she’s a victim! Gaah! I’m so done with this sexist crap on TV.

    I feel like this show has gotten an enormous amount of backlash simply because it’s not Stargate. That’s completely unfair, and rather sickening. Honestly, I loved the premier. I’m super excited that Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie are making television again, and I very much look forward to next week’s episode.

    Yes i blame Mallozzi who wanted youngers viewers, a more sexy one and totally bashed the old SG1/SGA fans.

    The amount of salt in these comments is insane. Let it go, stargate has been returned to the hands of it’s original creators Ronald Emmerich / Dean Devlin. Stop destroying this show simply because it’s made by the TV Stargate guys and it’s not new stargate.

    [ Smiles ] I love the show.

    I cannot wait for their memories to return. Plus, I am eager to find out: who was the person that wiped their memories?

    It contains lots of action and suspense and it is worth watching!

    it is comparable to sgu, in a basic sense, but sgu was infinitly better…..dark matter is a cliched, terrible show, ascension was brilliant….get dark matter of the air now and bring back sga,sg1, and sgu! especially sga and sg1…..

    It is Aug 4th as i write this–the series has already shown 8 episodes and i am truly enjoying this show. The beginning ep could have been better but as the series has gone on and we have gotten to know more about the characters, I find myself invested in the story and the characters. It’s not a sci-fi masterpiece but it is a good program the likes of which SyFy has not shown in a very long time. 2014-15 is the year i started to watch this channel once again after years of garbage. This year has brought us the surprising 12 Monkeys and now Dark Matter and i am eagerly awaiting Arthur C. Clarke’s Childhood’s End.
