Curse the Seattle Seahawks’ offensive line and the team’s inability to establish a running game.  Thanks to them – and several other notable underachievers, my Snow Monkeys head into tonight’s Monday night game needing a monster night from both QB Matt Schaub and RB Arian Foster to pull off an unlikely week 8 victory.  At this point, it’s not looking good.  Thanks-for-nothings also go out to WR’s Dez Bryant and  Brandon Marshall.  Also, TE Tony Moeaki.  As the regulation time was ticking down in the KC game, I was cursing myself for having unwittingly started an inactive player only to realize that Moeaki WAS active – but only in the theoretical sense.  I’m hitting the waiver wire hard tomorrow.

Anyone watch the premiere of AMC’s The Walking Dead?  That’s a rhetorical question because, in fact, MANY did.  5.3 million viewers is pretty damn impressive and, frankly, well-deserved.  Beautifully shot and wonderfully written with great performances all around.  And, have to agree with #1 zombie fan Ivon Bartok – those were probably the best-looking zombies I’ve ever seen.  Creepy good!

Louis Ferreira (a.k.a. Stargate: Universe’s Colonel Everett Young) swung by my office today to say hi – giving me the opportunity to throw a few more of your fan questions at him.  Today’s question –

How was it to have Robert Carlyle as a director for one episode of season two?

Great answer – up until he’s interrupted by my cellphone’s Yolandi Vi$$er ringtone…

Oooh, some interesting developments abound.  A tricky first step finally negotiated.  Less cryptic revelations to come!

Col. Young is a little different here, I think. I think someone has been using the stones. Thats General O’Neill in Young’s body. Give us the real Young!

I hope so… I was watching the Atlantis Blu-ray last night and damn do I miss the characters…

I would agree with you that the timing looks good for the movies with the season winding down and things looking up at MGM (The Hobbit began production).

We can only hope. Keep us in the loop.

Now that I am all excited!!!, I can’t wait to see what happens w/ SGU this week!

Best wishes,

Bryan

Sorry to hear about your Snow Monkeys, but was glad to see Louis Ferreira again. He was so funny!

Listen, I know some of you have been blog regulars longer than I have, but I figure as many thoughts and prayers as I can get would be helpful. My husband is having surgery for a peristomal hernia this Wednesday. They are hoping to be able to do it laproscopically, but the number of surgeries he has had before doesn’t make the surgeon optimistic. Thanks so much!

Not to be a buzzkill but what if it is the comic book deal??? wink

That said: SGA movie… Please…

We can hope, can’t we??? wink

Best Wishes,

@Lisa: Sending prayers!

Thanks Joe for the Louis video. I’m on pins and needles to find out what you negotiated.

Don’t forget Stargate SG1: Revolution, that was all set to go until MGM got into difficulties, hopefully now its also approaching a green light?

Wow, seems like AMC are doing fairly well with their own series recently.

Mad Men, Breaking Bad and Rubicon (which I loved – really hoping for a second series)
But – >5mil?? That’s 2.5 times what Rubicon got on debut and that had been their record!

Have to find out when it’s coming to Australia!

@ Lisa R – special prayers going out for your husband, for a successful surgery on Wednesday and a speedy, complete recovery.

The ever so handsome Louis Ferreira is pretty darn funny too. Love his “dance moves”.

“Tricky first step finally negotiated.” Hmmm. Interesting. Do tell.

Louis Ferriera, as an actor for theatre, I totally know what you mean about the Actors director. I hate directors that call out from the chair! Love them when they get on stage and show you how to do it, and work with you physically. Makes for a better show overall. Currently doing parts of “The Devils” for fellow student’s directing class, he is pretty good!

Joe, put this in the next mailbag please smile

Are Ascended ancients going to make it to the Destiny ever? Or are they already there, and just aren’t interacting because they aren’t allowed?

its a comic-book deal folks. SGA movie sure would like that but now, SGU is what I’m worried about.

Joe you are just plain weird. I love it!

You are like my brotha from a notha motha.

This, based on your ringtone. Ha!

No I did not watch Walking Dead. I do not watch movies like that. I do not watch SGU. Nor as I said SyFy since you and gang are not doing SGA Extinction. I liked your article on Halloween.

RE: Walking Dead – Nope. I prefer my horror a bit less graphic, otherwise I have nightmares.

RE: ‘Bobby’ Carlyle – Somehow, that just doesn’t sound right.

RE: Joey’s ringtone – WHAT the freakin’ hell was THAT??! It sounds like something an Asian schoolgirl would use on her Hello Kitty phone! I don’t care how secure you are in your manhood…Puh-LEASE get something a bit more studly!

The Walking Dead premiere was awesome, and it’s totally deserving of all the high viewership (In AMC terms) it gets. Zombies looked kick-ass, but more than that, it’s the fact that there’s an actual television show on now that’s a character drama… set in a zombie apocalypse. Boo. Yah.

Hey Joe,

That was a GREAT answer…GREAT question…I LOVED the music ending..all those cool moves on Louis’ part “It’s all good..” as Ivon Bartok would say.

Best to you Joe,
Always,
Cheryl smile

hmmm, I am thinking I need to learn more smilie key strokes.

Sorry to hear about your Snow Monkey but my Blues WON!!!! It was soooooo good and I did it with Bryant who only scored 8.40, Kevin Walter who scored a big fat zero and the Chargers on D who also scored zero. How did I win? Well the other guy had a player with a bye in his starting lineup and his Tight End position was empty. I’ll take it…haha

We don’t have The Walking Dead here yet. I don’t know when we’ll get it. But I’m sure I’ll be hearing ALL about it every week…LOL…time to make some more Zombie Ivons I think.

Louis looks extra hot with long hair…just saying.

Looking forward to hearing about more revelations….is it Stargate related, comic related or personal or something else Joe?

Cheers, Chev

p.s. I won the Melbourne Cup and had 3 winners over the day….yay!!

@ Lisa R: Will keep your husband in our prayers. It will all turn out fine, you’ll see smile

Hi Joe!

Candy cigs! That brings back memories. I handed out Sweet Tarts & Nerds. I hate those.

I did NOT watching The Walking Dead & don’t intend to. Haven’t you had enough of zombies? My bursting point was Pride & Prejudice. And Zombies. And Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter.

Thx for Q&A, finally I have a clue what’s wrong with the “SyFy” Channel.
