I’m a long-time fan of the Stargate franchise, but so far Stargate Universe hasn’t moved me.  I watched the first couple of weeks, but it didn’t reel me in.   Then again, the Original Stargate: SG1 didn’t reel me in until about the fourth season!  Ultimately I went back and watched all of them.  I also enjoyed Stargate Atlantis, even if it did get sort of tired for much of the last couple of years.

With these shows there are always things that wear on me. In SG1 for example, after a while I’d cringe when I’d find out it was yet another episode featuring replicators, and though I loved the character Teal’c, the episodes that centered around him…not so much.    But I lump that into the “it’s always something” bucket.  With Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes featuring visits from Lwaxana Troi weren’t for me, and on Deep Space 9, it was episodes that centered around the Ferengi.

So far I’m just kind of blah in general on Universe. I haven’t watched last week’s episode yet, and I don’t have it on the list of things to do.  But with these things I can change on a dime!

Anyway, on to the numbers.  Here’s the top 10 shows in average viewers for Syfy for the week ending October 18, 2009:
