It’s a travel day for me as I’m off to Vegas to meet up with Golden Boy Martin Gero for a culinary extravaganza!  But fear not.  I haven’t forgotten you.

With the back half of season two set to premiere, I thought I’d threat you all to some behind-the-scenes pics and vids from that new super-secret set I alluded to several months back.  Check ’em out, the tune in to episode #211, Deliverance.  For some non-spoilery previews of what lies ahead, head on over to I09 and pay Meredith Woerner a visit: http://io9.com/#!5774433/spoiler-free-review-of-stargate-universes-next-few-episodes or check out Mark Wilson’s write-up at scifi.about.com: http://scifi.about.com/od/stargateuniversenews/fr/Review-Deliverance-Stargate-Universe-211.htm

Mailbag:

paloosa writes: “Have you thought about leaving the pups in Van for awhile?”

Answer: Until December?

Deni writes: “Hope you come to some sort of decision as to how to transport the doggies – aren’t you kinda running out of time?”

Answer: Yep.  About two weeks to go.

Shiny writes: “Was the desert dissapointment due to the many fruit toppings I see in that dozen?”

Answer: Nope.  The fruit-themed desserts were actually the best of the bunch, relatively speaking.

Arctic Goddess writes: “Joe, if the sets are still standing for SGU, why were set visits for the Creation Stargate convention in April cancelled?”

Answer: I believe I mentioned in a previous mailbag that the issue stemmed from lighting the sets which would have proved too costly.

David J. writes: “just wondering if in case brad and co are given the green light for the movies will you return to help write them? or will you be to busy with the new project? maybe possibly a consultant at least?”

Answer: Given my new commitments, it’s highly unlikely I’ll be involved in any capacity should the story continue.

Lloyd67 writes: ““People at SyFy and elsewhere have hinted that if SGU could meet or exceed its launch ratings, they might reconsider the cancellation. Which means that the show could be saved, if somehow its ratings were higher.” true ?

Answer: I wouldn’t hold my breath.

How large do you think audience figure would have to be for Scifi to renew?

An the new set look fantastic, wondering if that where our missing scientist went. Shame we may never see them again.

Have a nice trip.
I hope you win lots of money

Is Vegas in the same time zone as Vancouver?
We only have one time zone in Scotland and I still get confused about the time. wink

Kindle + people watching = way to pass 1hr 50 mins at an airport.

Oh, go and meet some random strangers. Was stuck at Sydney airport one Friday night for 5 hours. Ended up having a few glasses of wine with a bunch of other stuck passengers and it was the most laughing I’ve done in some time.

Such a shame those pretty new sets won’t be used anymore.

I’ve pretty much come to terms that the show won’t be coming back, best to just enjoy the last 10 episodes and think about what could of been.

@Flight delayed by 1 hour and 50 minutes.

Lol delays suck Joe, I’ve experienced those too. Hope you enjoy your Vegas trip, and maybe that plane will arrive sooner?

While you’re sitting there waiting on your flight, Mr. Deni asked me to suggest to you to look into chartering a turbo-prop, cheaper and more realiable anyway. Don’t know what the rules are in Canada, but you could also charter a cargo flight and fly with the dogs as a “handler”. Now you’ve got US worried about the pups! Have fun in Vegas!

Oops, meant “reliable”. smile

Help! Joe, my bf and I loved reading about your dining adventures in Tokyo (among other entries). I’m going there for the first time this April, and we want to hit up one of the Michelin starred restaurants. We’re overwhelmed by the sheer # to pick from though – does any one (or a couple) of restaurants stand out in your mind? Thanks! smile

Divr

Hmm why do I get a feeling that the show will end with some sort of great danger and the crew have to dive into those pods in those video which actually a preprocessor of the ancient cryogenic hibernating pod. Is this the cliff hanger?

Have a great time in Vegas, Joe! I go through there often, but I don’t usually stay for long – it’s usually just land there and then take off for one of my yearly Grand Canyon backpacking trips.

Those SGU sets look amazing. I can’t wait for the back half of S2. Oh yeah, that starts tomorrow!! (Here in Canada.)

Hope your flight goes more smoothly once it gets going!

2 1/2 hour delay.

Still waiting…

Thank you, Air Canada

Yikes! Hope you can get there tonight.

Thanks for well wishes. Minor recovery snag but got some medication for the vomiting causing the dehydration. Coil from hell will come out on Wednesday. Sleeping sitting up (because it is the only comfortable position this time) sucks. Ever see the coil from hell?

The top double coil goes in the kidney and the bottom coil goes in the bladder.

2-1/2 hour delay, huh Joe? That really sucks. Hope the plane boards soon so you can start that awesome fun time soon.

Is there any hope for another network to pick-up SGU.

Is there no chance that you could get the plane to go to Vegas via Toronto – it’s running late already so what harm would a little detour take?

Hopefully won’t be delayed much longer. Have a safe flight.

BTW – Hope the mid season premiere does well tonight.
