We didn't have the chance to interview Brad Wright, the creator of Syfy's "Stargate Universe" but he was kind to give us The Pitch via email. "Stargate Universe" returns for season 1.5 on SyFy on April 2nd at 9pm and stars Robert Carlyle, Ming-Na, Louis Ferreira, Elyse Levesque, Alaina Huffman, Lou Diamon Phillips and David Blue, among others. The series follows a band of soldiers, scientists and civilians, who must fend for themselves as they are forced through a Stargate when their hidden base comes under attack. The desperate survivors emerge aboard an ancient ship, which is locked on an unknown course and unable to return to Earth.

LAist: Give our readers the three top reasons to watch "Stargate Universe" at broadcast time, 9pm, Friday nights on Syfy

Brad Wright: 1. Watching live gives you an opportunity to go to the fridge or to the bathroom during commercials, instead of starving and having to hold it while you fast forward.

2. Watching live is the best way to avoid hearing colleagues at your workplace talking about the episode's great twist ending the following day.
