Today’s Dark Matter season 2 sneak peek screen shot of the day!

The writers’ room was back at it today.  Some of the highlight quotes of the day to give you a taste of our creative process:

“It’s very very very rare for time travel stories to make sense.”

“Snakes on a ship!”

“We have no tag.”

Further insight into our creative process, this time in photos capturing my response to some of the ideas thrown my way…

Dubious.

Go on, I’m listening…

Tomorrow, another big Dark Matter fan Q&A announcement!

Continuing our trip down Stargate memory lane with some gorgeous art department material from one of my favorite SG-1 episodes: Nightwalkers!

  1. I was just going through my Steveston pictures from “Nightwalkers” film location. Memories! 🙂

  2. I always love to see James Robins’ work! And that sneak peak screen shot looks amazing! Looking forward to zooming over the lunar landscape in that shot.

  3. You dubious face looks more like a ‘why are you here and when are you leaving’ face. And your ‘go on I’m listening’ face looks more like you’re trying to get a piece of lettuce out from between your teeth.

    I think you need to work on your ‘looks’ as I’m not quite convinced of their intent. (I betcha right now you’re giving me a look…it’s probably that ‘why are you here and when are you leaving’ look… 😛 )

    🙂

  4. YOUR…your dubious face. Why do I only see these things after I hit the submit button. 😛

  5. Also, it IS very rare for time travel stories to make sense. They’re usually filled with logical holes unless really, really well thought out.

  6. Katy C: Yay on son graduating! Is he going off to college?

    Time is flying by. I can’t believe DM2 will premiere in 2 weeks! Time to review S1 on Netflix (yay for you Gforce!).

  7. @Tam: yep! He’ll be attending a small college in Pennsylvania. Monday we have summer orientation already. Yikes.

    Forgot to mention earlier; that gun is bigger than Five!!

  8. Hi everyone:
    Apologies for delayed reply.
    Long physically & emotionally exhausting week here in Central Fl.
    One of the members of the band I will be working with
    in the studio this summer
    lost a friend in Sunday mornings tragedy
    so we all did our best to show our support.
    I volunteered to help get information out to families
    then worked with a resource center
    while Jim helped out with the fundraiser for victims.

    Albeit thankfully things are starting to settle down now
    and am doing my best to get back to daily routines and catch up
    on what I missed here this week.

    “Go on, I’m listening”

    Hmmmm? Were you reaaaally listening??
    Or -> simply wondering if that eclair place in Toronto
    might possibly have a ‘quantum teleporter”
    to express ship some of their delicious goodies to the room?

    Love today’s screen shot. Is that the view from H8?

  9. @Palooza Hugs. So sorry for your loss.
    Remember we are always here if you need a listening ear.

    @Maggiemayday How’s the art show coming?
    Would love to see some photo’s if you have any
    And how’s the recovery coming along?
    Sending hugs n much love your way always! xo

    @Kathy C Congrats on your sons graduation!

    @Tam Destin sounds like a fun trip.
    Have never been there
    but the photos I’ve seen look awfully nice.
    Are you going to do the scenic gulf highway drive
    to your destination?

    Feeling any better? and any updates on Jo this week?

  10. Das… “YOUR…your dubious face. Why do I only see these things after I hit the submit button.”

    Why do I only see these things after you mention it? 🙂

    Joe you are a handsome man, no matter what faces you are making.

    Thanks Tam! I will try this recipe out. I like easy and my mom and dad love peaches. I’ll let you know what they think.

  11. @“It’s very very very rare for time travel stories to make sense.”

    On Star Trek Deep Space Nine, the episode “The Sound of Her Voice” was quite a well written “Time travel” episode. I mean, the crew of the Defiant receive a distress call from a Captain stranded on a Class L world. She doesn’t have much time to live, but the crew become invested in saving her and take turns talking to her to keep her alert. Long story short, they discover that the planet she’s on was surrounded by an energy field that has caused their communications to travel through time, and that the woman was actually dead for quite a while. It was quite a somber episode at the end.(Especially when you consider that they became emotionally attached to her, and retrieve her body to give her a proper burial ).

  12. Bubba looks awfully big in Five’s arms! Great pic!

    Dubious? Go on, I’m listening? I’d love to see your “I’m hungry, let’s break for lunch” face.

    Time travel rarely makes sense but is fun to watch – I believe that one must exercise “the suspension of disbelief” technique and sit back and enjoy the ride! Snakes in space can never be a good thing but if you get Samual L Jackson on a ship……
