So I was strolling across the lot today, on my way to snap a pic of Jason Momoa’s bitchin’ ride, when I happened to notice a guy in a funny suit having his face smeared with gel. I suspected something was up. I suppose the guy standing off to the side clutching the flamethrower tipped me off. SG-1 Stunt Coordinator Dan Shea waved me over and explained they were about to test a fire-retardant gel for Ark of Truth. As I looked on, everyone took a giant step back and the guy with the flamethrower opened up, torching the test subject. Happily, the stunt man was not reduced to a crispy chicken wing despite enduring temperatures of 300 degrees Celsius (that‘s 572 Fahrenheit!).

After snapping a couple of shots of Jason’s pink Cadillac, I dropped by the Ark of Truth set in time to catch director Robert Cooper giving Chris Judge some “constructive criticism” (note the look of sheer terror in the actor’s eyes).

My rewrite of This Mortal Coil went out and, approximately one hour later, more notes came in. This script is really taking its toll. How to describe the feeling? Well, you know how when you’re taking a shortcut home one night and you get turned around in the woods and realize you’re lost and then, in trying to find your way out of the bitterly cold and darkened forest, you are chased down by a vampire who manages to sink his teeth into you so that between the blustery night air that has chilled you to the bone and the sense of futility that comes with being hopelessly lost in unfamiliar surroundings, you also have to deal with the fact that your very life essence is being drained from you as you struggle to hold onto that last remaining shred of your soul? It’s sort of like that.

I did receive a pick-me-up in the form of some chocolate compliments of Amy Lynn. My soul may be exhausted but, thankfully, my taste buds are operating at 100% efficiency.

Spent the afternoon watching dailies for Reunion (some good blooper material here) and, before going home, dropped by Jason’s Airstream to tell him I thought he did a great job in the mess hall scene with Joe. I knocked and poked my head inside. Jason was sitting, shirtless, on his bed, playing guitar, belting out a tune (Sorry, ladies. No pics). I swear, the guy is even more an endearing character than his television counterpart.

Answers: 1) I have a number of Greg Bear books including Darwin’s Radio and Darwin’s Children but have yet to read them. Martin Wood is a big fan. 2) Haven’t read any and, no, we are not constrained by anything that is established in their worlds.

Answer: Of course I love the fans. That goes without saying. As for my guilty pleasures: decadent desserts, horror movies, and Japanese game shows.

  1. (((joe)))

    sorry to hear about your lost/freezing/vampire experiences. i had half the staff quit the department i work in last week, so… yes, i felt the vampires scratching at my windows. :p

    sally 😀

  2. 1.) I’m wondering something about being a Showrunner. It was my understanding that a Showrunner doles out the notes and makes passes to his/her liking on everyone else’s script. So how is it then that you’re getting notes on your own script? 2.) Will Carter every find out that McKay named a whale after her?

  3. Thanks for the pictures of Jason Momoa’s car! Jason’s parking isn’t all that grand though. 🙂

  4. Thanks for the pic of Jason’s smexy ride! My friend thinks it looks pretty.

    Sorry to hear about This Mortal Coil… My guess is, that in the end it will turn out to be an extremely wicked episode.

    Have you seen David Hewlett’s rap video? I think the writers should do one too.

  5. how is your life different now that you’re a showrunner? is it?

    also, i have a feeling carter in atlantis is going to rock my face off. oh, and i watched 24 with shanks last night and stargate’s ratings might have gone up if you had him walking around in boxers more often. DAMN.

  6. Hey, I work in that forest! Stop by my cube sometime. Watch out for management, though, they’re real bloodsuckers.

    Thanks for posting the pics of Jason’s ride. Very cool. I’d bet no one ever teases him about it, unless they can run very fast.

    I’m looking forward to Tao this Friday. I’ve read that Mr. Hewlett says he sometimes has trouble leaving work at the door. Did y’all have a problem with him letting the power trip go to his head?

  7. Joe,

    You can feel free to tell the lady in the first picture (the one holding her camera up to presumably take a picture of you) that Purp says hello, and needs to know if she’s into college football. 😉

  8. Thanks for the pics of Jason’s car. Loved them!

    Oh, please please please *insert as much begging as necessary* Please, consider releasing the blooper material from Reunion. And any other bloopers and deleted scenes from past and future episodes too 😀

    I always enjoy watching that tiny scene in the s1 DVDs extras (The Siege – Mission Directive) with David, Torri and Paul, where David keeps stumbling.
    And in the audio commentary for s2 Critical Mass, Rachel talks about a sweet scene where she kisses Carson (in a friendly way, people!).

    It would be so great to have all those scenes that were filmed but then deleted in a DVD, or available for downloading from MGM’s site or something.

    *inserts more begging*

    Now back to Reunion. A mess hall scene with Joe? I love the friendship between all the characters, and in particular one of the friendships I love more is the one between John and Ronon (I’m also a huge fan of John/Rodney friendship, team friendship, etc). Can’t wait to see this scene! Hope it makes the final cut!

  9. Cool pics again. I really like Jason’s pink cadillac.

    Uh, your vampire story should be a novel – I have pet peeves and things that sometimes happen at work where I have to redo and redo, but I never liken anything to vampires and lost woods.

    Pity about not having pics of Jason… *cough* nothing wrong with showing a man playing his guitar!

    For some odd reason I had this idea that Maximus would be bossier because of his name, but hey, I like the name Jelly and Bubba! Jelly is such a cute name to have!

    Also – that looks like a pretty crazy stunt. I’m glad the man is ok but I’d be shitscared of those extreme heat despite the protective garment.

    Oh yeah, any chance that David Nykl aka Radek Zelenka will get a new uniform that isn’t a space suit or hazmat suit?

    Thank you!

  10. 1)Will we be seeing a bloopers reel sometime on the dvds? 2)Is Mortal Coil giving you so much trouble because of tangles in the story or is it more just work to write?

  11. Joe, do you expect lower ratings for Tao of Rodney due to the Spiderman 3 premiere on Friday May 4th?

  12. Any chance of getting some younger script writers and/or characters for SGA? The generation gap created by having characters that only 30+ can relate to might be an explaination for ratings issues as it would limit audience. I love the show and the characters but am finding it hard as a 25yo to relate to a 35+ age group (it’s almost like a clique). Any chance of adding another main character who is in the early to mid twenties to reconnect the younger fandom?

  13. Hey Joe,have you/network/mgm ever considered having sg on another night
    because more people would be home on other nights like wednesday or thursday?
    What day did they show sg1 on showtime?
    Have you ever considered yourself as a excecutive producer before the promotion and would you ever consider
    having a sg show on the same platform as Sanctuary?
    thanx

  14. … you also have to deal with the fact that your very life essence is being drained from you as you struggle to hold onto that last remaining shred of your soul?

    I can relate.

    Hot damn, a pink Cadillac. That’s pretty cool.

    Jason Momoa shirtless and no picture? That’s as cruel as saying I have to wait for the fall to see season 4 Atlantis.

    Chris Judge: nice. I never thought I’d write this, but I think the swath of gray looks good on him.

    I told someone about Mark Dacascos being in Reunion. He reminded how much I got into the character Mani in Brotherhood of the Wolf. I remember MD from The Crow, too. Will I recognize him in the ep or is he in some sort of costume?

    EC

  15. Oh yay, you like Firefly too!
    Thanks for answering yet another of my questions, I feel special 🙂
    I cannot believe that a guy who plays a character like Ronon drives THAT car. You gotta get a pic of him driving it sometime. Or, you know, shirtless guitar-playing wouldn’t go amiss either…Glad to hear you survived the dentist, but I think it’s time you shoved the This Mortal coil script on Rob’s desk and be done with it. 🙂

  16. if Stargate Atlantis for whatever reason doesnt get a 5th of 6th season, will you find a way to bring back any “lost” characters like “ford” for one final episode, sorta like giving the fans, one last treat..?

  17. Hey there. What kind of music are you into? If you ever decide to brave orchestral music (or perhaps you already have!), I’d recommend Gustav Mahler’s 8th Symphony. It’s great. The first movement can be a little tedious, but if you can get through it, the second movement is worth it. The sense of nostalgia you’ll get will make you want to cry. It might remind you of something Williams or Goldsmith-ish, since a lot of modern sci-fi music is rooted deeply in Mahler.

    Oh yeah, and you can get it from iTunes… Chicago Symphony Orchestra is the only good recording I’ve come across.

    Tell me what you think!

    I’m excited about the live orchestra that Joel Goldsmith is going to get to use. Woohah.

  18. I am SOOOO jealous of that car. I usually do not go for pink anything…but that is a GREAT car.

    And it is a horrid shame you didn’t get a shot of Jason…but hey, I’m sure you didn’t want to hog all the female internet users…that had to be the case…hehe…

  19. Things I have learned from your pictures –

    (1) Jason Momoa parks like a girl and drives a girls car.

    (2) Rob Cooper is actually quite tall. I had him down as a Hobbit.

    I aim to learn something new every day so keep the pictures coming.

  20. Re the big plot hole in “Hide and Seek” – see, I didn’t think *that* was the big plot hole. I thought it was that although John could push Rodney off the balcony with ease, when Peter tried to punch him it rebounded…

    I still love the ep though and don’t care in the least – I’m sure everything can be explained!

  21. A while back you answered a question where you told us who you thought the SGA team would be if they were comic book supervillains.

    So I was wondering, who would they be if they were superheroes? Other than The Fantastic Four of course.

  22. That pink Cadillac is so very Jason. He’s a very interesting guy. Too bad we couldn’t score pictures of him playing the guitar without his shirt on. You would have made the day of more than one of your readers!

    Glad to hear you survived the trip to the dentist. I trust no more flouride trays were used.

    Good luck with the script. I think it might be the full moon. I can’t manage to get any projects accomplished this week, either.

    Granted, it might have something to do with the fact that I’m a bureaucrat. (Does anything get done when you’re a bureaucrat?) But this week has been particularly challenging.

    Hang in there. You can do it!

  23. Hi Joe, Fishbaum here. “Bloopers”?! I was wondering whether to prod, er, remind you about this topic, and here it is! I had heard someone (Hewlett, maybe) saying it was a contract/union problem that prevented their distribution. Any input on what has been holding them back, and when we might actually get to see some?

  24. Hey Joe-

    Your previous puglet photos have inspired me to make a short film. All I need is funding. It’s a classic story formula. Oscar worthy material. You’ll love it.

    We have our hero. Handsome, noble, yet fraught with inner angst.

    We have our villain. Sweet and charming one moment, evil blood sucking vampire the next! (why DO they cross Pugs with Chihuahuas? Recipe for disaster…)

    The damsel in distress!
    Ahem.
    The damsel in distress?!
    (Oh boy, looks like somebody’s been into the hooch again–sigh>).
    HELLO! LETS SEE The DAMSEL IN DISTRESS!
    That’s better. (Seriously, how hard is it to stay awake for your only scene? Somebody fire the casting director, for crying out loud…)

    Now, let us not forget – The Adorable Sidekick!! Fairly useless, but the camera loves him and he looks fantastic in leather.

    Anyhow. We then move on to the BIG REVEAL (oh no, my new best friend is an evil blood sucking vampire!!! Dum dum dum!).

    There is an appropriately EPIC BATTLE in which our hero nearly succumbs (Is he doomed to a life of bloodlust?!).

    Just as we’re sure it’s all over for the noble boy … the battle begins to turn!

    But soft!

    Our HERO emerges victorious to fight again another day!

    Hurray!

    The Kindgom is saved! And there is MUCH REJOICING! Ah, I said … there is much REJOICING, work with me here…

    Oh, never mind.

    CUT.

    That’d be a wrap.

    Huh?? What’d I tell ya! I smell a HIT spinoff!!

    Love,
    geek

  25. Early morning can bring the proverbial dawn of realization, even if it is raining. Please understand I meant no offense with my question about Mr. Hewlett. My smartassness gets me in trouble more often than not. I respect and admire him and his talent, and thoroughly enjoy the character of McKay. Thank you!

  26. Will we be seeing any McKay whumping in S4? I’m not talking comedic type like Phantoms/Sateda, or “brain” type like Duet/GUP/Tao. I’m mean the real honest life threatening physical injury we can see type. Gun shot wound, stab wound, gaping stomach wound, that sort of thing? I love McKay, but i’d love to see him bleed.

  27. Hi Joe,

    thanks for “the constructive criticism” pic of Chris Judge and Rob Cooper! 🙂 I hope next time you’ll drop by The Ark of Truth set in time to catch Claudia Black, Ben Browder or Michael Shanks and post their pics for us!

  28. *cracks up* I did NOT think Jason actually had a pink cadillac. I will never doubt your word again. =P
    Pretty sweet car, though.

    That’s it…nothing to say today due to total lack of sleep thanks to the contractors next door working on lifting my neighbours’ house 24/7.

  29. Hi Joe!

    Loved the pictures of Jason’s wheels. Very…PINK!

    I really do need photgraphic evidence, I’m afraid, of Jason’s bare chested guitar strumming antics though. Just to be certain you didn’t dream it and all, or overheard someone talking about it;) I’m sure you could sneak in and catch another shot of bare chested Jason, couldn’t you?

    No? Awwww,come on, I made a good case for it, didn’t I? (I won’t use Lol, because you’ll shoot me again, won’t you? Remember, shoot SHEPPARD not his whumpers!) Seriously it’s the only text talk I know! Annoying as it is, it does illustrate the posters intent of conveying humour. Though someone did explain the Rolmofloalala, or whatever it is, to me. Frankly, I’m still baffled by that one though…

    I do hope there will be a blooper reel in future dvd releases. I’ve been hankering after them for years, for both shows!

    Can you tell us, pretty please, about any of the Reunion bloopers?

    Thanks!

  30. Hi, started to read your blog to learn why you annoy so many people… Don´t tell anyone but I I think that I actually like you. 😉 I´m glad that you survived the dentist and reading about the fluoride treatment made me shudder. We had fluoride pills and eating them felt like munching on chalk, but we were usually allowed to melt them in a soup, which was okay. I suddenly appreciate the pills much, much more.

    Jason has a cute car! And I park exactly like that – but at least I have an excuse, I´m a girl 🙂

    Also, could you please post fewer pictures of food? It makes me slobber a lot and trust me, it´s not attractive.

    Thanks, Kate 🙂

  31. *squee*
    Thanks for the pictures of Jason’s car. Now any chance of getting him in some more pictures? 😉
    Glad your dentist visit went okay, those are rarely any fun.
    Question: will there be a blooper reel in the SGA season 3 dvd packet or SG-1 season 10? Also when’s season 3 coming out on DVD?

  32. Great entry, Joe. Jason is so retro-cool, he’s a wonder.

    I second the person who asked why you can’t delegate your soul-sucking script to Brad or someone given all your show-runner super-powers.

    Finally a serious question: In 24 Michael Shanks was down to his shorts within 15 seconds. In SG-1 we’ve barely had a glimpse of chest for YEARS. WTF? I hope RCC is doing appropriate rewrites for the movie. 🙂

  33. THANK YOU,THANK YOU,THANK YOU Joe. I just read a recent interview that you did and while I always knew that you were a Jack/Sam shipper you confirmed that you are also a Daniel/Vala shipper. After watching a certain episode that you wrote I had a feeling but now I know for sure. Did I mention THANK YOU (((HUGS)))

    Do people only relate to people in their own age group on TV shows? I adore House but I’m not in my mid-forties like House is (sadly, I’m also not a brilliant, or otherwise, doctor like House or any of his staff). And does this mean the only people who watched and enjoyed The Golden Girls were 60+?

    Bringing in a younger character just to try and fill a generational niche smacks of stunt casting and often backfires (see ST:TNG and Wesley Crusher!) and, logically-speaking (within the context of the setting of the show), Atlantis is a high-profile, very important mission where really only the most qualified people get to go. Scientists who are experts in their fields and time-served, experienced soldiers. So short of introducing some wunderkind character (see above re: Wesley Crusher), it is simply not practical for there to be characters in their 20s in Atlantis.

  35. Okay! Pure curiosity.

    So Sheppard’s personal item is his tv with the football recordings.

    What are the personal items of Beckett, McKay, Weir and (just for the sake of funny) Kavanaugh?

  36. You know. I had a nice witty comment all ready to go, but now that I look back over it, all I can say is “I got nothin’.” Sorry for being a waste of space.

    Tanya C. Anderson

  37. Did you guys ever land that guest character you were trying for? The one from SG-1? How about another hint as to who it is? My wife is hoping for RDA.

    Things I have learned from your pictures –
    (1) Jason Momoa parks like a girl and drives a girls car.

    Not a girl’s car – that’s Elvis’ car! Well, at least Elvis had a pink Caddie too.

    Next time: Jason + shirtless = pictures. Although David Hewett is who I crush on my co-worker crushes on Jason.

    Pics of David also very much welcome.

  39. Well, you know how when you’re taking a shortcut home one night and you get turned around in the woods and realize you’re lost and then, in trying to find your way out of the bitterly cold and darkened forest, you are chased down by a vampire who manages to sink his teeth into you so that between the blustery night air that has chilled you to the bone and the sense of futility that comes with being hopelessly lost in unfamiliar surroundings, you also have to deal with the fact that your very life essence is being drained from you as you struggle to hold onto that last remaining shred of your soul? It’s sort of like that.

    Oh, the joys of screenwriting. I’m great with the big picture, knocking out the beats of a story to make sure it has a strong teaser, act outs and ending. But when it comes to the actual line by line writing of action and dialogue…well, I’d rather gouge my eyes out with a rusty spoon than sit down at a computer for 50-60 hours banging out a complete script. I’ll just hire you “real” screenwriters do to that, y’know, so I can maintain my sanity?

    Oh, and Joe? Would you be a dear and give Jason my email address?

    KJC (who’s always had a weakness for long-haired, half-naked musicians)

  40. I’m glad you survived the dentist, but I’m sorry that you’re unable to fly.

    I’ll take it you were exaggerating about the vampire comments, but I do understand your frustration. Good luck with the script.

    I’m really jealous of that pink cadillac. I think that needs to get worked into an episode somehow if they’re ever back on Earth this season.

  41. Jason was sitting, shirtless, on his bed, playing guitar, belting out a tune (Sorry, ladies. No pics).

    Ah… no pics? Bummer! Thanks for the pictures of his car, though. His parking is a bit questionable, however… and my parents thought I was bad!

    So, did this tune that Jason was belting out happen to be in-key?

  42. hey joe,
    i am to attend vancouver film school in january 2008 and know that some of the teachers that are there have worked on stargate themselves. i was wondering if you have ever thought about teaching at such schools and what would you feel is the most important thing to teach? Bex calpin

  43. Yay you like Firefly too.
    Have you read the rest of Douglas Adams books?
    My favourite one has to be Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul but Salmon of Doubt is a close second for all the little bits in it.
    You foul tempter you. Mentioning a shirtless actor and failing to get a pic?
    Thats one of the meanest things you could do.
    Good luck with that script though im sure it will be great.
    And watch out for them vampires.

  44. *waves at Joe*

    Sorry Joe, I don’t normally do this, but needs must and all that! Be right with you talking crap as usual. 😀

    Might I suggest that the next thing you learn is manners?

    *cough*

    Enough of that seriousness 😀

    Joe, let’s talk.

    Jason…shirtless? Sitting on a bed? You’re such a big tease! So now that Jason has set a precedence… ;)You know next time we need pictures 😀

    So why was Jason shirtless?

    Maybe, if it was a necessary part of a script, you could give those lines to Joe F!

    Notice how I said Joe F, and not just Joe. After we had that lil misunderstanding with the shower scene and you blogged about your shower…

    So this time, I thought I’d clarfy as I know how much you dislike misunderstandings 😉

    So just to recap as i’m being more long-winded and nonsensical than usual. Please Mr M oh wise and wonderful executive producer, can we have shirtless Shep, lying in bed all hot and sweaty 😀

    What was I saying…. 😉

  45. hey joe! you’ve been a bit remiss lately in giving us more shep whumpy tidbits….and you know how much we love them!!
    a poster asked about wanting to se mckay bleed in season 4 well us shep whumpers want blood too, so will we get sheppy blood in season 4??

    (oh dear us whumpers sound so insane, its erm..all in the name of character development really ;))

  46. My rewrite of This Mortal Coil went out and, approximately one hour later, more notes came in. This script is really taking its toll. How to describe the feeling? Well, you know how when you’re taking a shortcut home one night and you get turned around in the woods and realize you’re lost and then, in trying to find your way out of the bitterly cold and darkened forest, you are chased down by a vampire who manages to sink his teeth into you so that between the blustery night air that has chilled you to the bone and the sense of futility that comes with being hopelessly lost in unfamiliar surroundings, you also have to deal with the fact that your very life essence is being drained from you as you struggle to hold onto that last remaining shred of your soul? It’s sort of like that.

    Kinda like living with your teenage offspring

  47. “I knocked and poked my head inside. Jason was sitting, shirtless, on his bed, playing guitar, belting out a tune (Sorry, ladies. No pics). I swear, the guy is even more an endearing character than his television counterpart.”

    Joe, you’re killing me. Had to mention it, and then not post? What’s the use of having a little digital camera anyway, if you can’t snap shirtless pictures of Jason Momoa?

    And I feel like Rizzo should be at Lola’s wheel, by the way.

  48. Hey Joe! Glad that you survived the dentist and good luck with the script. I went to the dentist the other day, and found out that I’m getting my wisdom teeth removed in July (fun).

    I think that it’s really cool that you gave Zach from G4 a small part. Have you heard David Hewlett’s rap-vid? One of the funniest things I’ve ever seen.

    Questions: 1)Are we ever gonna see bloopers? 2) How do you put up with all of the whining and complaining that comes from a lot of so-called ‘fans’? It must get really frustrating. Some of the comments can get pretty insulting.

    Thanks, Lauren

  49. A few short things-glad the chocolates made it again. I have no faith in the US postal system. And I guess one can never have too much chocolate. 🙂 And glad you appreciate them too.

    And on your advise I picked up a copy of “Old Man’s War”. You were SO right! That was the BEST book I have read in months! And since I was so impressed with it when I saw the sequel “The Ghost Brigades” I just had to pick it up also. Very good too. You have another John Scalzi convert here!

    And the crew would go ahead and have that kind of fun on the lot the day I left Vancouver. And the SciFi dinner too! Darn!

    Alas, I have what I saw Monday (not much from the other side of the fence 🙁 )

    As I was taking pictures I did I kept thinking security will think I am casing the place! Maybe next visit I can coming on the other side? Please? And kudos to the (I am guessing) the set builders for working late Monday night. I sure hope they didn’t get in at 6am that morning!

    More forth coming on that Vancouver trip. Eventually.

    And I thought you were kidding about Jason’s pink Cadillac until I saw it myself Monday. Nice.

    AmyLynn ( gla92@hotmail.com )including the email just because if you want to leave this comment up-pick what you want to. I do not really expect a personal response since you are really busy!)

  50. Joe,

    I loved the pics. of Jason’s car. He has good taste. Could you ask him if it’s a 1954/1955 model since, while the pics. are good, I can’t tell from them.

    Thank you,
    LaCroix

  51. Joe, if acting doesn’t work out for Jason Mamoa, some Saudis that I know will gladly hire him as a pimp… I’ very serious

    molson

  52. Joe,

    Any chance that, given the SG-1 movies do well, there will be a movie set in season 4 or something? You know, with bald Teal’c, General Hammond, O’Neill, and old school Goa’uld killing?

  53. Are the visual FX people not gonna make the mistake they made in The Return I and First Strike with their CG gates that have 8 chevrons instead of the 9. In Rising it did and in Pegasus Project/Exodus they did..? I am a huge fan of both shows but I can see a mistake that big easily… (Making that mistake in SG Universe wouldn’t help much if it uses 9 chevrons in its storyline at some point…)

  54. 1) Will the title sequence change from the S2 one now that Amanda will be in it and Torri and Paul won’t be?
    2) I have high hopes for this next season (yes you got the name thing right :P) are these hopes misplaced or are all the good elements I have seen so far going to come in to play meaning the team ought to stay on their toes?
    3) This in mind are the replicators going to be prominent in S4 or an added side bonus to pick up when it is least expected?
    4) See 3) but sub Wraith for Replicators
    5) You’ve stated S4 will be the darkest so far… will there still be a primarily comedic episode this season (like Duet)?
    6) Presumably Sam is also a great addition to SGA due to her experience in combating replicators in the past.
    7) Any idea how the production of Stargate Universe is going?
    Thanks for your time and keep up the great work I love both shows and hope they continue (in one form or another…)

  55. Thanks for the pics of Jason’s car! He really has excellently unusual taste. ‘Lola’ is gorgeous.
