Debunking the myth of Stargate Universe's unpopularity, HEY NETFLIX! SAVE STARGATE UNIVERSE! presents compelling evidence of the TV series' hidden audience of millions of viewers who went uncounted in its television ratings, and that Netflix is the perfect network to bring them Stargate Universe season 3 and beyond.

All author royalties are used to support the campaign to revive Stargate Universe, currently by mailing paperback copies to Netflix executives and others who can help.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hoffnung und Fakten für Stargate Universe 14. November 2013
Ja, das war eine schwere Zeit, als Stargate Universe abgesetzt wurde.

Die Schauspieler selbst fanden es nur via Twitter raus, dass ihre
Arbeit eingestellt wird. Natürlich gab es sofort eine Menge Spekulationen
warum. Offiziell ist die Serie an illegalen Raubkopien gescheitert.

So wurde die Serie geschaut, aber statt im TV, hauptsächlich auf dem PC,
aus dem Internet heruntergeladen.

Jedoch wurde so eine fantastische Serie viel zu früh vom Sender genommen.

Und hier kommt das Buch von Blake Linton Wilfong ins Spiel:

Er zählt Fakten auf warum Stargate Universe auch eine dritte und mehr
Staffeln verdient hat, geht auf andere Serien wie Firefly und Star Trek TOS
ein und das mit einer sachlichen Objektivität.

Für jeden Unterstützer der Save SGU Initiative Pflichtprogramm !

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ein Hoffnungsschimmer am Horizont 5. Dezember 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich finde das SGU(Stargate Universe) zu früh abgeschrieben wurde!
Dieses Buch von Blake Linton zählt wie mein Vorredner schon schrieb, Fakten auf warum SGU noch eine Chance verdient weiter produziert zu werden.

Ich möchte nicht zu viel verraten aber er geht auf Argumente ein wie zum Beispiel: Das SGU auch in Frankreich, England und Deutschland eine hohe Popularität besitzt etc.

Es werden auch die Schauspieler beschrieben wie zum Beispiel Alaina Huffmann(Tamara Johansen) welche ich zitiere: "'Save SGU' Please give me my job back". Alleine dieser eine Satz bringt nahe wie die Schauspieler zu der Absetzung von SGU stehen.

Am Ende wurde SGU abgesetzt weil zu viele Leute die Serie illegal Downloadeten und illegal streamten.

Bitte Netflix, geht auf dieses Buch ein und werdet Zeuge davon wie eine Gemeinschaft von Leuten etwas zum Rollen bringt.

5.0 von 5 Sternen an entertaining read and insightful look into the future of the tv industry generally 1. November 2013
Von UCJD2011 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I was surprised at this book. Whilst short, it has been excellently researched and makes compelling arguments that are presented in a logical, concise and structured manner.

If I were in the TV business, I'd make everyone of my executive team read this book. Beyond the narrow issue of saving a specific TV show (the much vaunted SGU) it is a glimpse into the rapidly changing nature of TV and what the future holds for an increasingly fragmented TV market.

In terms of the subject matter, the author makes a very compelling argument, backed by impeccable research and snappy quotes from key industry insiders that clearly demonstrate the strength in the idea of Netflix producing another season of Star Gate Universe, or at least a straight to DVD movie to finish of the cliff hanger that was the end of season two.

But the book goes beyond that, and makes the creative, ingenious and strong suggestion that Netflix could effectively reduce the financial risk of producing a new season of SGU to zero by adopting a crowd-sourcing approach to funding production costs. If successful, such an approach could be a new model for continuing other popular series (such as SGU, but think also Futurama, Caprica etc). In short, the authors suggestion that the fans step up and fund a season - at first a somewhat idealist notion - clearly links with what research tells us about the SGU demographic and would appear to be a very solid business proposition.

If you are a fan of SGU, this book will inspire you to get involved in the on-going campaign to have the series completed. Hopefully with the combined work of fans, and a little foresight on the behalf of Netflix, SGU will become the next Star Trek story: coming back from an early demise to be a success story.

If you're not a fan of SGU, I would still recommend this book as the analysis it makes - drawn on in-depth research - is relevant to the rapidly changing world of TV in the digital age. Put bluntly, by reading this book you'll be entertained and get a firm view of what the future of TV holds for a variety of non-reality TV shows.

5 stars, will now buy the hard copy to add to my bookshelf!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great analysis of the flawed cancellation of SGU and its future online potential 9. November 2013
Von Andrew Donald - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
A very well written essay book if you like articulating the myriad of reasons why the series didn't appear to be as popular as it actually was and why Netflix or another media entity based around online distribution is best suited to this show

In essence Stargate Universe SGU suffered firstly because of the way it was introduced, there were perceptions it was a direct replacement for Stargate Atlantis (SGA), whatever the degree of truth in this there was a committed faction of the wider Stargate fan community that were actively against the show. In hindsight perhaps the way it was introduced could have been better namely the same way as SGA was introduced running in conjunction with the final seasons of SG1

Another issue is that there is a break from the style and focus of the earlier franchises. As the book refers to SG1 and SGA were "plot-driven" and procedural (could easily be watched from one episode to the next) whereas SGU was "character driven" and is rather more serialised.

There is the additional issue that the earlier franchises revolved almost exclusively around the stargates, whereas SGU revolved around a balanced mix of the stargates and the ship they are all travelling on

So for me SGU was a "half stargate show" and half "space drama" if you like which is probably why it needed time to filter it's audience, that is to say it is the type of show that appeals to only some traditional stargate fans, but at the same time there is an appeal to new viewers who weren't necessarily fans of the traditional SG franchises

So we would have a fanbase I suspect* that was half stargate/half sci-if or sci-drama fans perhaps, which perhaps can be seen in terms of the rather autonomous relationship between most of the deeply committed "save SGU" fans and their erstwhile kin over at "Gateworld" who find SGU "controversial" shall we say...

Why is this important? Because the tv viewership needed time to sort out. I suspect the case from the producers and the expectations from the network revolved around a form of instant transfer of the fanbase of the previous SG franchises to the new show vi the traditional format. A new style and it's controversial introduction however means this wasn't the case and not enough patience was shown

The book discusses the unarticulated online viewership, another part of the issue is the timing of when SGU came out, right in the transition periods between old and new consumption patterns, and in some respects is the victim of the network executives who want to continue to work in terms of the old "Neilson ratings" world based around times lots and the changing consumption desires of the market which are geared more towards digital consumption on demand.

This mixes in with another issue the book discusses, namely it's international popularity. One of the main issues is that there is a serious flaw in a business decision making strategy which firstly makes decisions on renewing a show based merely on the projected US audience only and secondly one which demands consumers adhere to their preferred business model. Talented business Executives should focus on firstly understanding what products have a strong underlying interest and seek how to adjust their business model to tune into and monetise that

A good example is Game of Thrones, it is heavily pirated internationally but a method being adopted in cutting down the piracy rates revolve around such things as fast-tracking the broadcast to overseas networks to take place as close as possible to the US broadcast but also allowing for digital consumption via ITunes etc.

In the case of SGU, a good business model would focus around it's large international following and developing revenue from that rather than a niche US audience and a niche network that caters to that small audience (namely SyFy)

This is why the central premise that a media outlet such as Netflix is the perfect medium for a show such as SGU makes perfect sense

The example mentioned regarding the Constellation awards, where a social media campaign was able to mobilise international audiences of the show to actively sign up to a Canadian organisation via online means and pay $15 to vote is important, as it shows there is an audience exists on some scale willing to pay and perhaps even help fund the show

It is worth exploring, there is a broad argument that crowd sourcing in conjunction with online media distribution will be increasing prevalent

In the case of SGU there are some complications given cast, set and staff availability, but my personal hope is that Netflix can start off with trying to test the waters with a 3 episode mini-series perhaps which makes the complications easier to work around, plus crowd sourcing interest can be gauged all the while helping Netflix fund the show and minimise the risk on a high production series

This can also act as a pilot scheme and Netflix can prospectively take it from there

Save Stargate!! This show should never of had been cancelled! Buy this book to help bring it back. If people could send peanuts to save Jericho then we can buy a book for SG Universe.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Not Just Stargate Universe 4. November 2013
Von cklevzell - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Hey Netflix! Save Stargate Universe! is much more than just listing reasons to save a television program. Much more. It just so happens Stargate Universe is a perfect example. Mr. Linton’s respectful, engaging, appealing and balanced logic is clear: *Television as we knew it has been forever changed.* Network executives at the very least should consider the arguments of what constitutes a viewer or a fan and the lengths they will go to accommodate their entertainment habits and schedule. There are too many variables and too many options to be tied to a cable company or the whims of a network anymore. They no longer own us. We are not at their mercy. Fans of SGU recognized and used this to their advantage early on.

The depth of detail that Mr. Linton exposed is nothing short of astonishing. Hey Netflix! is extremely well-researched, well-written and informative short book on not only why a television series should be resurrected but how the benchmark of Neilsen ratings is sadly inaccurate and outdated, among many other examples. The author has left no stone unturned in uncovering the truth about networks and their archaic methods of what constitutes a series worth saving and gives solid irrefutable arguments on how SGU and, honestly, any fan-supported series, can and would be profitable. Not just Stargate Universe.

One must applaud Mr. Linton’s research, resilience, determination and thoughtfulness. He has done much to keep the spark alive for the fans of this outstanding and much-loved series, and Hey Netflix! does not disappoint. If you’ve thought you heard all the arguments before, no, there is more and it is a well-worthwhile read.

For as interesting as Hey Netflix! was, the most interesting read was the last chapter entitled: For All Mankind. The argument of having a secondary mission is of utmost importance, especially today, that mission being of serving the greater good. My favorite passage was "Like no other series before it, SGU puts us aboard a starship and rightly devotes much of its time to our challenges in coping not only with the grandeur and danger of the cosmos, but also with each other." A beautiful quote, indeed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Clear, concise and persuasive 13. November 2013
Von Mr. Toby A. Howard - Veröffentlicht auf

Firstly many thanks to Blake Lapthorn for putting on paper what all of the frustrated sci fi community thinks.

Ok so I have been a fan of SGU from its inception, giving another angle on the stargate theme. Like many others it was easily relatable and filled a hole I never knew was there.

This was a really compelling read, using many reputable sources (even some extremely applicable ones) and eloquently showing why SGU is a viable program for Netflix.

If any execs at Netflix read this I have no doubt they will see the book (and SGU) for what it is. Kudos for the work behind the book!

Save SGU please Netflix!
