To those of you asking – Yes, I fully intend to continue my trip down Stargate Atlantis memory lane by covering the fifth season and, eventually, offering some insight into the never-produced SGA movie, Stargate: Extinction. I’ve planned a trip to Japan for early November, so that Akemi can visit with her family, and plan to resume my Stargate reminiscing when I return. Our Supermovie of the Week Club will also be on hiatus while I’m away, not, of course, because Cookie Monster will also be away (We’re two completely different people after all. Not sure what you were thinking), but simply because I’ll find it very difficult to hold him to his guest review commitments while I’m in Tokyo.
Received some terrific news from an old friend yesterday. Turns out he’ll be retuning to Vancouver to run a new show. Can’t reveal who or what yet but, suffice it to say, it’s great news and, in a matter of months, we’ll be chowing down – just like old times. Akemi was positively thrilled upon hearing the news, marginally less so when I told her our friend would probably get his own place while in town rather than move in to our guest room.
It’s time for another Stargate poll – and another chance to win a signed script by voting and then leaving a comment on the poll page.
This month, I’m asking: “What was the best comedic episode in Stargate history?”. Surprisingly, there were quite a few contenders:

Huzzah! Following a horrible 0-3 start to the season, my Snow Monkeys have scratched and clawed their way up to a 2-3 record. If the playoffs were held today, the Snow Monkeys would nab the 8th and final post-season spot in our 14 team league. Despite the sub-par record, we’re the 4th highest scoring team with a tough-luck 5th highest points against. In week #1, we would have had a record of 3-10 vs. all league opponents. By week #2, our overall record would have improved to 5-8. In week#3, we would have beaten 8 out of the other 13 teams (8-5). 10-3 was my overall record in week #4 and, by week #5, my Snow Monkeys boasted an impressive 13-0 record vs. all other contenders. Now THAT is some rebuilding. All that said, I face a tough match-up in week #6 against The Mighty Merkins given two of my best players (Drew Brees and Marques Colston) are on a bye. Still, I’m confident in my match-ups: Josh Freeman and Doug Martin against a weak KC D, Hartline at home against the Rams in what should be a shoot-out, Jared Cook the ONLY Tennessee offensive threat, a harrassing Falcons D at home against the lowly Raiders, #2 ranked fantasy kicker Lawrence Tynes, heavily-targeted Dwayne Bowe and, best of all, running back Trent Richardson who I traded for last week and has been nothing short of spectacular!
What do you mean you don’t care?! The Snow Monkeys are defending champions! They just barely made the playoffs last year, snagging that final wildcard spot before running the table and shocking the world (or, well, our Stargate fantasy football league anyway).
GO SNOW MONKEYS!!!
