Today, I treated the crew to some food truck action.  Minus the food truck because it’s too early.  Instead, Fidel Gastro’s ( set up shop in the lunch room and served up a surprise dinner.

Another special guest star of sorts visited set today as writer Michael Simpson dropped by to do some interviews for SciFiNow (  He brought us a nice bottle of scotch – that got confiscated at customs.  But that didn’t stop him from making him an honorary member of our whisky club and toasting the honour with a 16 year old Langavulin.

  1. Special “FEMALE” guest star, eh? Well, I guess it’s not Robert Picardo, unless he looks good in a dress. Who knows…he might be willing…

  2. There is a new show coming to SyFy in September called The Expanse. It’s based on a series of books by the same name. The first novel, Leviathan Wakes, was published in 2011 and nominated for the Hugo and Locus awards. Did you ever read it?

  3. I sense were getting closer to that Single Malts in Review post. What can I smuggle-in, er, I mean dutifully report to customs and bring with me on my next Toronto visit?

    And now I’m hungry for some BBQ. Guess I need to fire up the smoker soon.

  4. I usually end up hungry after reading your blogs…that food looks soooooo good.

    Hmmm guest star is a she…and their birthday is today…yeah still no clue who it is

  5. Mmmmm. That looks good! So sweet of you to treat everyone to lunch. Web series? Are you talking about putting their selves out here on this blog?

  6. I had bbq for lunch yesterday at the beach, but did not look as good at that pix, thanks for sharing, and you are such a nice boss.
    ~guess the customs people were getting ready for their party also… Who do you put in charge of locking up your liquor?
    ~And only 2 months, where the heck has the time gone, seems like only yesterday you were talking about moving and the new series and whew,,again,looking forward to seeing the production, and knowing all the cool behind the scenes stuff, thanks.
    Are Akemi and the pups ready to head back to Van? Summer, heck spring, I am looking forward to warmer and staying warmer weather. Have a great weekend.

  7. Best Bosses EVER! What, no cupcake pictures? 🙁

    JeffW: 😆 Good luck with traveling! 😉

    Jenny Horn: Yay for Mo!!!!!

    bambamfans: I hope the move went well!

    That’s a lot of exclamation points. Sorry for yelling….

  8. Two months to go, that’s cool. Hopefully things go well for you.

    @coming to SyFy in September called The Expanse.

    A release date hasn’t even been announced for that. Both The Expanse and Dark Matter also have pretty basic looking websites on Syfy, hopefully that will change soon.

  9. I was watching Death Parade recently, and it’s quite a good anime. If anyone feels like watching, I suggest not reading up on it, the first episode has plenty of shock value if you go into it not knowing the reveal at the end. I thought it was quite a dark and sad series at times, I’m on Episode 9. I can see why it’s so popular, the story hooks you from the start.

  10. Stretching here….could be a birthday on another date, but celebrated Friday DM style.

  11. Hi Joe
    Everything looks really good. You’ve got a well oiled machine there already.
    Now I have to stay up until 2:00 am to see the final of the World Women’s Curling Championship. Your show will be on before 10:00, right?


  12. Wow, seems we just get started and before you know it… they’re serving the stewed eggplant. Where does the time go?

    I’d love to know what network DM is going to be on in Canada! Still no announcement on that that I’ve heard.

  13. I looked for birthdays for March 20, female, and one name stood out in the list of 950 people connected to entertainment industry and that was Erica Luttrell. She has a Lost Girl connection and she is Rachel Luttrell’s sister. That is your special guest star.

  14. Those fries. Pad Thai fries. My head hurts from not having them. I’m confused about whiskey getting confiscated by customs? Did Canada enact prohibition?
