We were out in the forests of North Van yesterday, shooting day #3 of The Hunt.  All of the local weather people predicted rain but I remained the sole optimist.  We were looking at a late crew call (10:30 a.m.) because we’d be going late tonight….

Hi Joe,

Awww, I hope you had cocoa on hand; I always crave cocoa on a damp day in the woods – goes back to Girl Scouts, I think. Glad to see Ivon found his camera cover -he tweeted earlier today that he didn’t want to look like lame-camera-guy-with-garbage-bags-on-camera.

Smiles, Julie

PS. First?

Been raining here in Minnesota too For like 3 days straight all day…No fun.

Looks like Louis is having a good time though haha

@Narelle – OMGosh! I just caught up with yesterday’s comments – oh, hon, I’m so sorry – sending prayers and blessings, and heart heavy sympathy. Zen {{{HUGS}}}, we love you, dear friend!

Ahhhh yes I know the feeling of being soaking wet from rain. I faced by giving it the ol’ “I could give a rat’s @$$, you’ll not defeat me you watery weather phenomenon.” I subsequently spent the remainder of that day very cold, and wet.

And regarding the previous day’s post… Elyse Levesque is very good looking. And she seems like a truly wonderful person to know. This leads me to wonder if all Canadian women are so blessed… Jewel Staite, Amanda Tapping, Ellen Paige.

Sigh…

RE: Paddle Faster – lol lol lol

There’s a few places around here where we could use that sign. razz

RE: Rainy nights – I would give anything for a rainy night – or day – right now. So damn dry this summer, and today another scorcher. 92 in Philly, and high 80s here. I am sick of the heat, sick of the dry days, sick of sweating. Grrr.

RE: Joey’s lip – Joe, are you nurturing a ‘stache so you can look like Carl, or is that just your normal 5 o’clocker?

I’s sleepy. Nites!

I and many others have asked the question of you before: How many people transfered from Icarus to Destiny. You have said you and the other producers have a number but you haven’t said what it is yet. So we must speculate. Col. Carter said there were 80+ MIA that they couldn’t beam out. So let’s say there were 85 people in the base. Some of them, like Doctor Simms, were killed in the initial attack. In the extended version of Air, Dr. Rush tells O’Neill that several dozen people made it to Destiny. So let’s say that 72 people made it to Destiny. This is the list I have come up with: DESTINY CREW MILITARY: CIVILIAN: COL. YOUNG DR. RUSH LT. SCOTT ELI WALLACE LT. JOHANSEN CHLOE ARMSTRONG SGT. GREER CAMILLE WRAY LT. JAMES SENATOR ARMSTRONG(DEAD) SGT. RILEY DR. FRANKLIN(M.I.A.) AIRMAN BECKER DR. BRODY SGT. SPENCER(DEAD) DR. PARK ??? CURTIS(M.I.A.) DR. MORRISON CPRL. GORMAN(DEAD) DR. PALMER(M.I.A.) CPRL. MARSDEN DR. VOLKER CPRL. RIVERS(DEAD) DAVID WALTERS AIRMAN RENNIE DR. BOONE AIRMAN DUNNING VINCE KWAN(STAYED ON FAITH) ??? O’HARA DR. CAINE(STAYED ON FAITH) CPRL. BARNES DR. INMAN SKEPTICAL UNNAMED CIVILIAN (LOTS OF LINES IN FAITH) CIVILIAN 1(STAYED ON FAITH) CIVILIAN 2(STAYED ON FAITH) CIVILIAN 3(STAYED ON FAITH) CIVILIAN 4(STAYED ON FAITH) CIVILIAN 5(STAYED ON FAITH) CIVILIAN 6(STAYED ON FAITH) ??? KINNEAR(MENTIONED BY SCOTT IN WATER) ???COLE(MENTIONED BY T.J. IN FAITH) That is 41 people that I could come up with that had their names mentioned or appeared prominently in the first 20 episodes. 4 are Dead, 3 are MIA, and 8 people stayed on the Faith planet. If anyone has anyone else to add to the list, please mention them. So that leaves 31 people that either haven’t been shown or that have been shown but weren’t given names in the episodes. This is just my guess, but no one will tell us officially and it has been nagging at me since the first episode and I felt like trying to figure it out. Also, they don’t have a whole lot of weapons either. In Air Greer tells Scott that they have 23 weapons including handguns. When Curtis went MIA he had an automatic weapon and possibly a sidearm. That leaves 21 total weapons for 70+ people. I am just getting tired of waiting…bring on Season 2!!! Loading...

Well that didn’t turn out the way I wanted. It looked so good before I submitted it. I had all the names seperated by spaces between the military and the civilians. Now they are all scrunched up. So if you can, try to imagine a line between the two sides, with more civilians than military.

Oh… I also wanted to say that pictures 10 and 11 look really cool. Something about silhouetted trees and shafts of light look awesome.

@Narelle: So sorry for your family’s loss.

Thanks for the pictures Joe.

I cannot wait for Tuesday. Did anyone else besides me notice that Julia Benson’s character (James) was not in the final shot in the room with Young as part of the military people, but we clearly saw that she was captured. Flick-flub (because she was not available that day to be in the shot) or did she escape custody and we just don’t know about it?

@Julia: Joe doesn’t seem like a hot cocoa kind of guy (like you and me). I’m thinking saki?

Narelle, I am so sorry for the loss of your future sister-in-law! (I worked extra hours today and didn’t see the news till now.) Sending huge hugs.

{{{{{{{NARELLE}}}}}}}

Two things my job has taught me:

1) Life is beyond fragile. Anyone can go at any time. All we have for sure is today.

2) LOVE your family and friends TODAY. Tell them today. Do that extra special “just-because” today.

Hon,’ if her life was valuable (and of course it was), you have to follow reason and believe that your own life is just as precious to your family and friends. Then you have us lot! We’d be messes without you. I don’t even want to think about it.

Please don’t say you don’t ever want another birthday. Please take it back.

Especially because your birthday IS September 26th, which is on the 25th in North America.

Joe, could we have a combination condolence / birthday dedication for Narelle on the 25th?
(Also, Annie from Fremantle’s b-day is the 25th, too. Right?)

Please, ‘Relle. Hang in. Your hubby Nath would be lost without you. Your Mum and Dad need you. The rest of your family and friends need you. And your blogmates need you, too.

Take it back.

–Lise

I know there’s a bit of “history” as it were, but would you mind if I post a tweet from Joe Flanigan today, where he talks about his friend who is afflicted with ALS and what people can do to help?
Here is a link: http://bit.ly/azZKun

Being currently based out of LA, I love it when I can experience rain, as I’m currently doing in Vancouver. Hopefully it didn’t impact the shoot too much. I’m pro-squirrel, and thus greatly appreciated the comment about the crane.

Have you been to Riverview Hospital? Went in there today to observe filming of another TV show shot up here in Vancouver. Creepy, creepy place…

@Tim Gaffney. Outstanding job. It would really be nice if TPTB would give you the concrete number you have been trying to pin down. And of course now there is the question of how many Lucian Alliance members made it over. Though luckily that number will be much smaller.
As far as the pictures of rain, and those of you complaining of it, PLEASE just send some of it east. A quarter inch of rain this month(3 inches is the norm). The local resevoir is at a record low. People with lakeside cabins now have to hike to reach the water. We’re going to need a lot of wet stuff to bring back up the levels. Some is on the way, but to call an end to the drought here it’s going to take quite a bit. But watching Joe try to look miserable being wet is funny. Nice try, but we know you spend all the time between your picture taking in a nice, dry, warm beverage stocked RV. One with extra thick doors and locks to keep out the actors when they try to storm your stronghold.
Thanks for all the teasers, trailers, and other SG stuff. Just hoping work allows me to watch the premiere.

Moi oui smile Ohh on dirait que le temps n’a pas était très gentil avec vous. En tout cas merci pour ces photos =)

Contente de vour voir sur la pic en tout cas =)

Gros bisou!!!
je vous adore!!!

I’m curious – how did the weather play into what you were shooting? Did it have to be rainy, or are you going to pretend it wasn’t rainy at all?

You all look pretty miserable, even for the few that braved to smile for the camera.

Mega hugs to Narelle….we talked on Twitter but I just want you to know if you need to talk or anything please get in touch. I’m here for you, as is everyone on the blog.

Three days until the premiere!!!!!

Joe, looks like you all were having an interesting time in the woods. I’ll echo one of the previous posters and say it reminds me of Girl Scouts too. And of Cub Scouts when my boys were still that age.

Hope everything is going well!

Ivon, you are such a dork! But you’re the sexiest dork I know…although that other dork we both know comes a close second…you know…lol.

Joe, it feels like my birthday this week ‘cos it’s been an endless run of super hot pics of my favourite guys…what’s up? Do you know something I don’t know? Thanks heaps!

Super Secret Project Update: Well since DHL lost my Super Secret Project it had to be printed and shipped again. Then the person organising the printing wasn’t told of my work address to ensure delivery so it got printed and shipped a 3rd time…currently there are 2 separate deliveries on their way from Memphis Tennessee to me. I’m stalking the packages now that I have tracking numbers. Hopefully one should be here by Tuesday and I’ll probably Express Post it to you Joe along with bribes to get it there in time. I will email all of the details.

Cheers, Chev

That “still blocking” photo above Bill Mizel looks like a scene out of The X-Files…just saying.
