While it looks like Netflix won’t bring back Firefly, that doesn’t mean it couldn’t bring back another cancelled before its time series. At least that’s what fans of Stargate: Universe are hoping.
They’ve started a petition with the on-line streaming content provider to bring back SGU.
Here’s their argument in favor of bringing the show back:
As epic space science fiction, SGU has highly focused appeal to a desirable and exceptionally avantgarde demographic: Geeks, technophiles, early adopters–viewers in the coveted 18-49 age range who embrace tomorrow’s technology today, and who prefer to watch series via the Internet through gaming consoles, laptops, PCs, smart phones, tablets, iPods, smart TVs, etc. Thus, though the Nielsen ratings measure conventional audiences with laudable accuracy, SGU’s uniquely unconventional viewers went largely uncounted, watching in ways and time frames beyond The Nielsen Company’s purview. This gave SGU the illusory appearance of unpopularity and skewed its reported demographics.
So do you agree that the series could be brought back? And do you want more SGU?
