New Stargate Universe trailer" Survival"


This 49-second trailer for Stargate Universe was shown during Stargate Continuum last night, but is now available at

http://www.scifi.com/universe/

There are some clips from the shows (including from White Sands), plus sound bytes from
  • Robert Carlyle
  • Lou Diamond Phillips
  • Brian J. Smith
  • Ming Na
  • Elyse Levesque
When all the news first came out, as well as the first two trailers, I coudln't help but think... they're trying to compensate for the loss of the Stargate franchise and Battlestar Galactica but combining the qualities of both shows. So far, I think the only aspects of Stargate that are making it to the series is the Stargate, and the name Stargate, which isn't, er, a lot. I'm still definitely on the fence on this show.

The darkkness, the shaky camerawork, all is indicative of Battlestar. I'm pretty sure (you can correct me if I'm wrong) that Mallozzi said they were shooting it in documentary style, but I've recently watched some documentaries, and none of their cameramen seemed to have ingested a dozen expressos ;)  And *cough* as i've joked before, the character-driven stuff might be the sex scenes ;)

While I'm very curious about the show, and will check it out, I don't have the 'oomph' I've had in the past with other shows. Opinions?.
