Last week's premiere episode of Syfy's Stargate Universe managed to attract more viewers than some network shows, including Fox's Dollhouse, to become the biggest Stargate franchise premiere in four years. The viewer and critical responses to the show were mixed, with some praising its darker look and direction and others calling it tedious and derivative. (We liked it. Thanks for asking.)
We're anticipating another Syfy premiere this week: The cable network welcomes back Amanda Tapping's Sanctuary for season two on Friday. Will the Sanctuary premiere follow Syfy's high-ratings trend set by Warehouse 13 and SGU?
