Save Stargate Universe
   I'll come right out with it: I've typically considered the Stargate franchise a cut below the rest. Now before you immediately close out my review and vote it "unhelpful", …

The Triangle
   It wasn’t overly apparent at the time, but 2005 is quickly becoming a year known for its primetime science fiction television.  Don’t take my words for it- you could …
