The last story slot has finally been filled. We spent most of yesterday spinning, then breaking Harmony which I am really, really, REALLY looking forward to. Alas, I won’t be writing it as Marty G. will be assuming said duties, but I have no doubt he’ll do a brilliant job AND have a lot of fun with it.
No sooner did we finish coming up with the final scene than a little gift arrived, compliments of the Save Carson Beckett campaign. Okay, not so little. It was a huge bag full of chocolate from Hotel Chocolat in the U.K., comprised of bars, beans, nibs, and wham bams. This follows on the heels of the chocolate delivery I received compliments of Pauline the other day – a heavenly assortment of bars. It, in turn, followed on the heels of the assortment my sister-in-law, Grace, picked up for me on her recent trip to London. This coming off the bars gifted me by Michelle (of the SCB campaign) during Comic Con. Among the latter was a fiery dark chocolate chili and red peppercorn that is, to put it mildly, an acquired taste. Check out Carl’s reaction to the unexpected “burst of singular flavor”.
Watched the Day 2 Mix of Travelers yesterday. Great episode (Hey, Sheppard bruised and bloodied – what’s not to like?), and tremendous work on the part of Joel Goldsmith who produced a terrific score. To all of you Sam fans dying for a hint of what’s going on with Carter’s love life, you’ll have to wait until Trio for a not-so-subtle tip-off. Let the gang at SDJ begin their predictable hysterics…NOW! The director’s cut of Miller’s Crossing came in a little long which will probably mean a scene or two not making the cut – but hopefully finding their way onto a future Deleted Footage Special Feature. By the way, guest star Steven Culp is terrific in this one. Finally, we will get around to breaking that Sheppard on Earth story next week along with what we hope will be the season finale.
Finished George R. R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones the other day and thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. Loved the politics, duplicity, humor, and seemingly endless cavalcade of characters. I’ve switched over to scifi for a change of pace, making my way through Frederik Pohl’s Gateway, and will be dropping by my local bookstore to pick up Scott Lynch’s Red Seas Under Red Skies. And, since we’ll be off for the long weekend, I’m bringing the sequel to A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, along just in case I have time between the new dog, the visiting relatives, and the con I’ll be dropping in on this Saturday.
Today’s pics: A little more Comic Con, chocolate overload, Carl enjoys his chocolate
Anonymous #1 writes: “Is Teyla’s pregnancy a season long thing, or will she be back to her wraith-kicking self before the end of season 4?”
Answer: Since Rachel will be pregnant throughout the shooting of season four, the Teyla character will also be pregnant through most of the season.
