Debate of the Day: Stargate Universe or Doctor Who?

Alright, well thanks to a number of your suggestions on a recent post I made lamenting how there were no good sci-fi shows on TV, you guys pointed me to a few quality old ones I’ve missed, Stargate Universe and Doctor Who. I haven’t gotten into a show in a while (my last attempt was getting through one season of The West Wing, but that’s not the best show to watch back to back), and now I’ve got time for a new one, but only one.

So I need your help deciding which one to attempt to watch. If you’ve seen both, that would be preferable, but if you’ve only seen one, you can make the case for your pick. Here’s how I see it.

Stargate Universe: Only two seasons, which is good, but also bad because it ends in an unsatisfying Firefly kind of way because it was killed too soon. Sounds like a very cool concept to me, but I don’t know any of the Stargate lore. Would have to wiki that.

Doctor Who: Figured out I don’t have to watch 50 years of it, and can start in 2005. More seasons to get through (six total?) but they’re shorter because it’s English. Might be a bit campier than what I’m used to, but multiple generations of Brits swear by it, and I normally love UK shows.

So, which would the better option be do you think?
