Review - Stargate Universe Season 2 Episode 10 Resurgence (Part 1)

Stargate Universe has been exceptionally good as of late, and I actually came into to the episode expecting a lot. Well, four good episodes in a row would have been pushing it. "Resurgence (Part 1)," the mid-season finale, brings up a few pertinent question and then is filled with a space battle which ends up going nowhere, not to mention the first half of the episode which moves slower than molasses.

That cliffhanger is pretty boring like the rest of the cliffhangers on the show. Chloe does something to the ship, drones are swarming around, and there's no way out for Destiny. The only problem is that everyone knows the ship and crew members will survive--mortal danger on a TV show isn't that exciting. I'm far more interested in what Chloe did than the drones still shooting, and we didn't even get a teaser for what she did.

Looking ahead, there's the Ursini who, according to Telford, are just out to save themselves. Are they good as Telford says, or not to be trusted, according to changed Chloe who seems too have crossed the line between humanity and alien.

Score: 8.3/10
