  1. Jeff … You know if you could get a screengrab of the painting you could use Google Image search and find it. Basically, if it’s on the internet an easy image search will bring it up. If you know what episode it appears in you can get a screenshot from http://www.gateworld.net. Let me know if you need any help.

  2. What a beautiful picture of Akemi and Bubba!

    No housewarming party scheduled yet – still have to unpack a bunch of stuff. This is the first night in the new place though!

    I’m afraid you’d disappointed about the wallpaper. There is none here and if I have any say of it there never will be!!

  3. Thanks for the surprise mini mail bag! Akemi looks so pretty in that picture. I’m looking forward to some aliens too!

  4. Goodmorning Mr Phelps. Your mission today should you choose to accept it is to find Joseph Mallozzi aka Gaijin. According to latest reports He may be sporting an unusual checkered suit purportedly in attempt to disguise himself to appear as either Dean Martin, a used car salesman or a popular tv game show host and traveling with his accomplice Tonic.
    Once located you are to [REDACTED]. Should you fail in your first attempt or Mr Mallozzi refuses to [REDACTED] You are permitted one phone call on your burner shoe phone to contact the FBI (feline bureau of instigation) to request back up assistance.

    Good Luck . Be safe out there and remember … This message will self destruct in 60 seconds.

  5. Can I have one question/suggestion too?

    Its about… SGU CAST!

    I wonder if some actors from SGU could and will appear in Dark Matter? For example Julie McNiven (Ginn), Mike Dopud, Peter Kelamis, Patrick Gilmore…

    BTW Peter and Patrick are adorable in this video, recommended:

    And what about KATHLEEN MUNROE, probably my favourite actress from SGU. It would be nice to see her again, because:
    – she is great Canadian actress
    – she has very pleasant voice (very good for good characters)
    – her acting feels very natural
    – she played wonderful Amanda Perry aka Little Miss Brilliant… and was brilliant in that role 🙂
    – she is atractive, but it was her kindness, cuteness, intelligence, shyness and overall positive attitude that make the biggest impression in her role

    Few images of Kathleen as Amanda Perry:

    http://images3.cliqueclack.com/tv/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/sgu050710.jpg

    She could play a woman related to Five (mother, aunt, family friend?) who tries to find her. Or woman that was traped in the same facility as Two. Whatever…
    If casting department or Joe hears me, pls consider Kathleen and/or other SGU actors. If not for Season 2, maybe for potential Season 3. All the best for DM season 2! 🙂

  7. Thanks for the surprise mail bag 😄

    Love the cast breakdowns, looking forward to hearing about the others and of course, the actors who will be playing them.
    Roll on Season 2!

  8. Drea: 😆

    Akemi looks so pretty in that picture! They make a cute couple. 🙂

    Yay for the mailbag!!!!

    Gforce: Congrats on moving in! Send us a picture of the view sometime, when you’re sitting on the porch and drinking your morning brew. I bet the view is incredible!

    Just got back from Florida via Nashville. It’s the long way but I had to pick up a friend. I’m tired of driving. The weather was excellent. The wind was a little cool but the water was warm. We saw a lot of dolphins and one lion fish (left that alone). Pretty cool!

  9. Thanks for the surprise mailbag 😄

    Loving the cast breakdowns and looking forward to hearing about the others and, of course, the actors who will be playing them.
    Roll on Season 2!

  10. Thanks for the surprise mailbag 😄

    Bring on Season 2!

  11. Gary Hope your first night sleeping in the new house was peaceful and nothing went bump in the night. oh wait … you did remember to have the land inspected by a shaman before your house was constructed to make sure its not sitting atop an ancient burial ground … didnt you?

    PonyTail, Make any whiskey in that distillery of yours lately? I’ve got some lovely wall paper with a design inspired by @BoltBaits octopus stuff turkey wrapped in crabbed legs. Am Thinking we should kidnap Joe from work this week n head on over to Gary’s new place to [REDACTED] 😀

    By the way @BoltBait That turkey looks delicious! What time’s dinner? I’ll bring my homemade [REDACTED] stuffed pie for desert.

  12. Hi Joe – Thanks for the answer! I was wondering after watching Season 1 on Netflix. Good show.

  13. Thanks for the repost of the pic of Anthony and Lulu! Perhaps I should have specified, though–I meant a picture of the two of them on set, with Anthony in full costume. (I floated the idea to him at the cast signing at Comic-Con, and we both thought it would be hilarious.) Guessing it’s probably a bit early in production for a shot like that, though.

    In any event, very much looking forward to Season 2! 🙂

  14. Aw, pretty pic of Akemi! Lulu looks so put out, like she’s wondering why Ivon hasn’t rescued her from that surly brute. “Unhand me sir, at once! Ivon! Oh Ivon!”

  15. I see my post did make it through the void – in triplicate!
    A tad worrying really, considering WordPress never prompted me once for my password in order to post!

  16. What a stunning picture of Akemi and Bubba. I see she is still keeping up with the blue with her hair. It looks terrific.
