I know I have a few Stargate fans on my flist so I want to ask, so far, what do you think of Stargate Universe?

I've watched the first three episodes so far, and the fourth is downloading as we speak for me to watch in the near future.

I'm not entirely sure what I think at this point. It's not terrible, but it just doesn't "feel" like Stargate yet. I understand that they wanted to do something different, but I was hoping it would still be recognisably the Stargate I love. I hear that they wanted something "darker", which is a great idea, and so far it's definitely heading in that direction.

I think part of what I miss, though, is the Jack/Cam/Sheppard-factor. I think Eli is supposed to be filling that role, and I do like him, but I dunno. Part of what made Jack/Cam/Sheppard so good is that they weren't supposed to be irreverent/funny/inappropriate/etc. Eli has his funny lines, but he's a young, smart kid; he's supposed to do that stuff.

I also hate Dr. Rush. I know I'm supposed to, but he's not even the "love to hate" kind of character.

It's early days and I'm definitely going to keep watching, at least for now. I'm just a bit apprehensive.
