January 26, 2023: Undiscovered (well, technically “discovered”) Stargate treasure!

Well, this is cool.  Akemi has been obsessively and meticulously cataloguing my immense toy collection over at the newly created instagram account: Toys My Husband Won't Throw Away. Today, while going through the endless storehouse of items, she came across THIS - Back in the Stargate days, the producers would receive their very own copies…

January 24, 2023: Controversial Best Picture Winners!

1941: How Green Was My Valley (beat Citizen Kane, The Maltese Falcon, Suspicion) Citizen Kane, considered by many as perhaps the greatest film ever made! 1944: Going My Way (beat Double Indemnity, Gaslight) Double Indemnity and Gaslight are two seminal films.  Not sure the same can be said for Going My Way. 1965: The Sound…

January 23, 2023: The Horror Marathon continues!

The Platform (2019) A vertical prison with one cell per level. Two people per cell. Only one food platform and two minutes per day to feed.

Completing that Stargate: SG1 concept art drop with accompanying episodic insights!

Chain Reaction... No concept art 🙁 The fact that the late Don Davis considered this episode one of his personal favorites makes me exceedingly proud.  It was one of those rare episodes that explored Hammond and offered us a peek of the man behind the uniform.  Don was his usual brilliant self and the palpable…

More Stargate SG-1 season 4 concept art and episode insights!

The First Ones... Peter DeLuise kicks off his writers’ room stint in fine style with this episode, the first in a string of Unas episodes.  Peter’s office was located across the hall from mine and, whenever someone would bring their kid to the production office, they would invariably stop to visit with Peter who had…

So many great memories from this season.  I've included some insights from Trip Down Memory Lane series to accompany each episode's concept art.... Small Victories... I remember sitting in Brad’s office when we first came to Vancouver and having Brad ask Robert how he planned to conclude the season three finale, Nemesis.  Well, Rob knew…

However, when the spell goes wrong, the husband is brought back as an Evil Christmas Tree hell-bent on revenge. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ltLspKvGqA My thoughts: It's like Dr. Who meets Little Shop of Horrors that at times feels like it's been…
