Stargate Universe: The Miniseries?

I’ve had a though.

I wonder if Stargate Universe might have been better received if “Air parts I, II, and III”, “Darkness”, “Light”, and “Earth” (maybe “Water” too) had been made into a week long mini-series rather than 5 or 6 weeks worth of episodes.

In the mini-series format it would have served as a single setup with the ending speech Col Young gives as the spring board into the series. Since there would have been no week-long gaps between the parts of the initial story the pacing would have felt better; for comparison imagine if the Battlestar Galactica mini-series had been the first 5 or 6 episodes of season 1 before “33” was aired.
