I'm not watching SGU anymore because Skiffy has decided to not post the shows on their own website or on Hulu until five weeks after they air. Sooo, they lost a potential fan. Fooled me...I didn't know they had the ratings to do that.

Yep, I'm pissed...

Not just SGU, but also Haven.

I've yet to determine if they're doing it for all their shows, or just a few odd selections.

I found SGU is on Comcast's On Demand fairly quickly after airing.

I'm wondering if it has to do with whether or not Syfy is the primary "owner" of the show as to how soon it makes it to Hulu or On Demand or iTunes, etc. MGM gets the money from iTunes, so most likely they get it from Hulu, too.

The On Demand situation is a bit different, though. They show the episodes soon after airing, but there are a few commercials that seem to be network-related more than anything else. Another thing with On Demand is that you can fast-forward through the ads, so that wouldn't be a very big incentive to outside advertisers.

I think it's not just Skiffy, but all of NBC Universal does it for some shows. They're realizing how much ad-dollar wise they're losing by airing on the internet so soon after and are trying to force people to watch live.

Part of this is Google TV and general internet televisions entering into things so even DVRs are getting passe.

I think the studios' train of trying to rein in how people watch left the station quite a while ago.

I found the first episode of SGU mind-numbingly boring with no likeable characters.

I tried; I really did. Watched the first 4-5 eps, back in S1. It was just not aimed at me, apparently, since I'm not a young male who plays video games for recreation. *shrug*

The entire show looks as though it's filmed using the weak beam from a 7 watt night light. All of the men are physically unattractive (to me). TWIC want the good-lookin' women to stick their chests out at any and every opportunity. I found the thing badly written, with poor production values (like the lighting, but that's just a for instance), and I ended up just sitting there pitying the poor actors who were just trying to do their jobs, after all.

So, whatever SGU is supposed to be, it's not *my* Stargate, that's all I know. I just cannot watch.

It's particularly sad that BW and the others have no clue why they have to go on the internet and beg people to watch. **“Please watch my show,” he said. “I mean, [saying things like] ‘I’m loving the show,’ ‘I downloaded it’ … that does not keep us on the air. Viewers have to watch our show live on the same day, otherwise our television show is going to go away.”**

Like, duh.

Would any fans of the show like to comment? This is, after all, an SGU poll and discussion thread for "Trial and Error".

What I liked most about this episode is that Destiny has become more and more a character in its own right. I enjoyed the Ancient mythology from SG-1 and SGA, and so I'm really enjoying its continuation in the new show.

I was a little disappointed when the first iteration of the dream sequence turned out to be a dream sequence, since I rather liked the idea of, "main character flies out into space with no warning" (nothing against the character, but I thought it would have been cool).

I'm wondering how Eli was able to get those pictures up on the wall, since Ancient-tech doesn't really seem geared towards having a full-color printer.

The idea of there being a symbiotic bond between Destiny and its pilot seems a little odd, but it's not all that odd given that it absorbed the first person to sit in the interface chair, and given how the Ancients were on the cusp of ascension.

I didn't get a chance to watch the show last night since I was busy at work with election coverage. Was there any appearance by Louise Lombard in this one? It seems that her brief appearances are the only reason I'm semi hanging on to this show. The rest of it pretty much bores me with it's slow plotlines and darkness (literally). Seriously, can't the ship have a few more lights on it? It's begun to seem like they're stuck in a dungeon. I only enjoy the episodes that are not based on the ship.

Louise was not in this episode. Mark Burgess--Franklin--was in it, though.

I thought Louis Ferreira did a great job acting-wise. The whole retry/reset thing seemed familiar from SG1 eps like Avatar, to me. I'm a bit confused about how much Rush did vs the ship. Need to rewatch to catch that.
