Robert Carlyle Interview About Stargate Universe

Embedded below is an interview with Robert Carlyle about Stargate Universe. He seems genuinely happy to be working on the show. I always find it interesting to hear actors talk about their characters, especially good actors who put so much work into understanding that character.

Contains minor spoilers if you haven't seen the first two episodes.


So far the show sucks. I am disappointed. Bad acting, silly characters, poor story line. Reminds somewhat of Lost. I was hoping it would be more like Battlestar Galactica. I hope things improve.

The show got much better in the second episode, and actually got better in such a way as to explain why the stuff that was wrong with the first 2 hours was wrong in the first place. Seriously, last week I was very disappointed, and this week I get it and am uncharacteristically optomistic again.

Very interested to hear 'em! Please blog 'em for the rest of us!

Personally, I thought BSG started out weak, quickly improved, got better and better, bordered on abject brilliance, and then pissed it all away in the 2nd half of the 3rd season. (People see my name and assume it's because of the New Caprica arc, but in fact, no, I really liked that. I felt it was kind of the last gasp of genius in the show)
