stargate atlantis and universe should run side by side for at least one season
Why? (and they won't, by the way)
And why not a season of SG-1, Atlantis and Universe in a common season? Since they are all related in the Stargate saga.?!
They are two (or three) totally different creatures. They really have nothing to do with each other.
To run side by side (by side) they would have to have some common ground aside from stargates. So... what?! Have Wraith, Replicators, Goa'uld, or Ori in the Universe series? That would really kill the series from the inception.
I will let Universe stand on it's own merits, and judge it from that perspective. But Atlantis is a dead horse as far as I am concerned. Just as was SG-1. They both ran out of steam.
They were both great, and I am a great fan of both. But any series, it seems, can only go so far. Once the ULTIMATE foe is vanquished - what more can be done?
