Well, aren't we popular?

Snow Monkeys Win!  Snow Monkeys Win!  Down 17+ points going into the Monday night game, my Snow Monkeys scratched, bit, and clawed their way to victory over the Vancity Viktors, improved their record to 3-5, and positioned themselves one game out of that final playoff spot.

Set guests David and Tiffany joined us on set via the Stargate Auction by Propwerx. The proceeds of David's winning bid went to the B.C. Children's Hospital.

A new episode of Stargate: Universe airs tonight at 9:00 p.m. on SyFy – and it’s one of my favorites: Trial and Error.  For a sneak peek at tonight’s action as well as a little insight from actress Alaina Huffman (SGU’s Lieutenant Tamara “TJ” Johansen) head on over to Curt Wagner’s blog:

And, while you’re in the neighborhood, why not check out Curt’s behind-the-scenes piece on that outtake from episode 3, Awakening, that has been making the internet rounds:

David Blue gives his best "blue steel".

A couple of very dusty days on set saw various members of the cast and crew walking around, doing some spot-on imitations of ghosts, ghouls, and the living dead.  Actor Louis Ferreira stopped by my office to chat and ended up leaving a powder trail of oat, bran, and what I believe to be wood shavings in his wake.

 

Mike Dopud flexes some Lucian muscle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now go watch Stargate: Universe, then come back here and let me know your thoughts.

Gotta make this quick ’cause I’m pooped…

Great ep, Greer was a treat, and – really for the first time – I really liked Scott. I thought he shined in this ep.

Now, I gotta go to bed before I pass out. It’s been a looooong day.

‘Trial and Error’ was a very good episode. I thought the whole premise of Destiny interacting with Young was really clever. Louis Ferreira did a fantastic job. Also, I loved how Eli and Greer interacted in this episode. I couldn’t help but smile and laugh with them at certain moments, epecially when Greer asked how much time Eli thought he needed!:P Anyway, great episode! I’m really looking forward to next week.

Wow, what a powerful episode! If the Emmys truly recognized Sci-Fi shows, L. Ferreira would have a great chance, due to his amazing performance tonight. Not much I can say without:

This episode started out reminding me of sort of a cross between the Star Trek The Next Generation episode “Cause and Effect” and a twisted version of SG1’s “Window of Opportunity.” Young has just hit rock bottom, and now he is given 3 opportunities to save the ship, and he fails all 3 times. The laugh he gives after the aliens start to board the ship is that of a man who has truly gone mad and is barely fit to walk around the ship, much less be in command. I am surprised that Scott or T.J. haven’t told someone to cause an “accident” to the still so that Young can’t get any worse. Although it seems T.J. is taking out her problems the same way, to a lesser extent. Scott took a big risk with his speech/wake-up call to Young. Even way out there, there are risks to what he did, although it had the desired effect. The only thing I didn’t like was that it seemed like Young suddenly just pulled himself together and went to the control room. A man in his state would have needed more time than that. A minor nitpick in what was a truly solid episode. One wonders if Rush hadn’t overriden the program, would the ship have jumped anyway with Young somewhat back in control. Also liked the Greer/Eli interaction. Greer is the kind of guy you would like as your wingman, even if Eli didn’t seem to want his help at first. Great to see Ginn again, please bring her back more often, especially since she and Eli seem to have so much in common. Liked Eli’s comments in the control room where he was talking about him and Ginn and his mouth was moving much faster than his brain. The look Scott gave him, and then the looks he saw from everyone else was priceless. Kudos all around. Can’t wait until next weeks The Greater Good, but really can’t wait until Sunday when I will see B. Smith & E. Levesque in person at the L.A. Convention! Bring them both on!!!

What a great episode. However, my husband was nearly killed as a side effect. After watching it live, I went to watch it on the DVR with him. We finished, he skipped to the end and then was going to hit “Delete recording.” I said, “Don’t delete, don’t delete, don’t delete…..” He HITS DELETE RECORDING. I screamed at him, “WHAT DID YOU DO????? I SAID DON’T DELETE!!!!!” I told him he was batting a thousand tonight. First he destroys our sound system set up and now can’t figure out how to get the components back to work properly and now he just deleted MY SGU RECORDING!

Little did he know that I fortunately recorded it on my computer via my satellite box. But don’t tell him. He can be in the dog house for a little while. Eh, eh, eh.

Tonight’s episode also reminded me a little of Farscape’s episode from season 1 “Back and Back and Back To the Future” minus the temporal distortion.

PBMom, you are very sneaky! I don’t have to worry about my wife deleting anything, she is a real technophobe and doesn’t touch anything she’s not completely familiar with.

Again I can’t wait till Friday night my time to watch the episode live.

ps. I also have two boys diagnosed as autistic (one more Aspy though – like me). Thankfully it seems we have a much better support system here (in Australia) and they were both helped greatly by our local Early Intervention Centre. My 7 year old is now in second year of primary school and doing quite well – helps that every class at his level has an integration aide to assist the teacher (we have four other kids from the same intervention centre who joined us at the school and combined we got enough government support to pay for them).

pps. Well done Snow Monkeys! Arian Foster also did enough for me to win some games I thought I was going to lose (even at half time of MNF).

Great episode! I won’t go into detail, but Young(Louis) sure was…..sexy!

@Arctic Goddess I agree!!

Wow, great episode!

*spoilers*

I have to agree with Brody “it’s the little things that matter”. There is a scene early on in the episode where we just see Greer smiling as Eli and Ginn chat that just seemed wonderfully warm and normal. This episode did wonders for how I look at Greer, it was nice to see him as just a normal guy and friend to Eli; bringing in a bit of levity to counterbalance the depression around Young.

Are we going to be seeing more of Camille soon?

Joe, you weren’t lying when you said Trial and Error was some of Paul’s best work (Unless you were talking about another episode or something. Remembering things is hard). It was a great episode, with lots to chew on and some great moments throughout – the Young stuff especially, but the Eli/Ginn bonding with a side helping of Greer playing matchmaking were the kind of friendship (and more) moments that I really feel balance out the conflicts between characters. They feel earned, and they feel great to watch.

Props all around.

Looking forward to Carl’s The Greater Good next week (It’s Carl’s, right?). He does character beats really well, and more Young Vs Rush is always appreciated! grin

Woah, i have a new favourite episode after Sabotage ^^
This time the ratings can´t be under 1,9 million viewers and they are never going to be under that number.
But that ep. made a few new questions

1.Was that only a hint on the repairing of the big dome or are we going to see repairing soon?
2.If that was only a Battle Scenario of Destiny, how can the ship think the we meet them again, is that Chloe or does the ship know more than we do?
3.If the others find the bridge, what does that change? they could controll the countdown clock, but steering the ship doesn´t help because if fly into another part of the galaxy they fly away from the path of stargates and without the shuttles they can´t visit the planets

Coucou! comment ça va?

Moi très bien, j’ai beaucoup de travail mais j’essaye de passé sur votre blog le plus souvent possible!

Merci pour ces photos, ça fait plaisir de voir le cast, la 1er pic est très drôle^^.

Je ne suis plus trop ce qui se passe dans sgu en ce moment =S….j’attend d’avoir plus de temps pour voir les épisodes.

En tous cas c’est toujours un plaisir de venir sur votre blog.
Gros bisous,
Anais. smile

Just wanted to write in and say: great episode!

The character interaction was awesome, and it was nice to see how Destiny deals with problems; without a process such as stopping for a full simulation until a probable solution is figured out it would have been hard to imagine how it survived all those years on its own. And the way it appears to tie in with the crew’s brains is also an excellent idea, even though it begs the question what the chair is actually for if a physical connection isn’t required for a neuro interface. I’m still hoping the chair is some kind of mind uploading device, as it was hinted at when it deep-froze and dissolved that scientist guy in season one.

By the way: was Young’s spinning wedding ring just before the dream sequence an homage to Inception? grin

Personally I thought the battle scenario for Colonel Young was a little unfair as he didn’t have the knowledge of the bridge or any of the systems that could of essentially moved Destiny out of danger before being destroyed.

I liked the human element of Youngs problems, it was more a damned if you do and damned if you don’t. You can’t exactly blame him for breaking down, whatever he did. They all still died.

Just had he had the bridge as a card to play and couldn’t jump to FTL, he could of easily ordered the ship to focus on a defensive strategy then once the ships are behind them augment the ships shields to the rear of the ship and make a run for the nearest star to recharge.

Well personally if I was in that situation I would of done that anyway. As running away is the only option in the form Destiny is currently in. Even the best of ships bar the Super ship Anubis had can’t take on that many ships lol

Anyhow, been reporting The Amazing Race will be filmed in HD as from the next season. Kinda expensive all things considered, if you take into account the number of HD cameras the crew will need.

reporting = reported.

Anyway hoping things will improve on the viewing front for SGU.

I would have liked to see some subtitles for the Aliens in Space and Awakening, maybe something humorous like “Die filthy beige thing!” or “Come, let us rise against the khaki oppressors!”. I mean the gibberish doesn’t have to actually mean something, but have the subtitles there to give extra details like “We need the Destiny to breed, that’s why!”, I don’t know, something like that, maybe.

Joe, now that I’m awake and showered and finally drinking my coffee (decaf – alas, I drink for flavor, not for jolt :p )…I have a few moments to clarify and add to my earlier comment about Scott…

When I say that I liked him for the first time in this ep – I mean – I liked Scott…not just what Brian is able to do with Scott. For the first time I found Scott compelling, not just this ‘whipped, sort of whiny fella who – though he could be brave and all – you still always had the feeling that he’d rather be knockin’ boots in the supply closet. Well, in last night’s ep he was something very different, and I liked it. Maybe it’s because he seemed more like a man to me, rather than just a kid following orders. I hope he continues to grow in this direction.
