I want to start off today’s blog entry by simply stating how bullshit home printers have become. Today, I was unable to print up a copy of my new script because my HP printer needed to have its magenta cartridge replaced. Magenta?!! Seriously. I only require one color for all of my printing needs. Black. That’s it! NOT magenta! NOT yellow! And certainly NOT cyan, whatever the hell THAT is. And the fact that they’ve designed printers NOT to print if the color cartridges run low due to evaporation brought on by year’s of disuse is absolutely galling! Let it be known that, in the Dark Matter universe, HP executives were exiled to a barren moon in the Adhara sector for their shady product practices, only to be forgotten by a disinterested populace. When someone finally remembered them (“Hey, remember those guys who used to make the printers that would stop printing every time one of their little-used color ink reserves would tap out?”), a rescue shuttle was promptly sent only to discover the remains of the HP brain trust, their remains as desiccated as the innards of my cyan printer cartridge. Consider it canon.
Hey, what’s up with some of my former Stargate co-workers? Well, glad you asked…
Former Stargate Showrunner (and SGA and SGU co-creator) Robert C. Cooper is an Executive Producer on the forthcoming Dirk Gently’s Holisitic Detective Agency for Netflix.
Former Stargate Executive Producer (and Dark Matter Consulting Producer) Martin Gero is show running NBC’s Blindspot and is directing its season 2 premiere (which he also wrote!).
Former Stargate stunt coordinator James “Bam Bam” Bamford has been busy on Arrow. In addition to fight coordinator duties, he’s also directing episodes as well – most recently the first two episodes of the show’s fifth season.
Meanwhile, on the Dark Matter front, some thoughts on “Episode 16: I’ve Seen the Other Side of You”…
