Review – Stargate Universe – Deliverance (S02Ep11) (mid season return)


Screen time doesn't equal character development.

This week:
We are back! Things pick up right where we left our depressed anti-heroes, in a pickle. Mega-Chloe’s call for help is answered, and Destiny now has another set of problems to deal with. The drones are taking a toll, there is a suicide run and only Faux-McKay can save them.

Pluses:
It certainly wasn’t as bad as some of the preceding episodes.
Some funny moments when they are working with the drone.
Nice to see our blue alien friends again.
At least the amusing Patrick Gilmore got some screen time.
The always engaging Jen Spence finally got some story but there was no explanation as to her anxiousness.

Minuses:
It was a very “McKay” solution to their problem.
The only thing that made Chloe interesting has gone.
Colonel  Young, worst leader ever?
Telford is still under-utilised  and a waste of space.
Blink and you miss TJ.

This episode wasn’t bad, it was just average. I was quite disappointed to see there was a real lack of depth to this episode. They didn’t have to wrap everything neatly up in 40 minutes, and as such, the more interesting characters got passed over. The whole resolution really frustrated me, as that was my main beef with Stargate Atlantis.
