January 28, 2017: Dark Matter Season 3 – Day 42 Of 91!

No, seriously.  I realize today was Saturday, but we were on set anyway, shooting 2nd unit Day #1 of our latest episode under the direction of the wonderful Gail Harvey.  Anthony Lemke (THREE) made it all worthwhile by surprising us with three boxes of donuts!

Jodelle Ferland (FIVE) was gunning for trouble on a day that featured not one but two surprise take-downs, some emotional farewells, and a surprising kiss.

Zoie Palmer has director Gail Harvey in a headlock.  It’s Zoie’s signature move, second only to her finishing move: The Dragon Screw Neck Whip.

Huzzah!  I finally broke through that top-of-third-act writer’s block thanks to: 1) Script Coordinator Alison Hepburn’s input and 2) The news that Paul wouldn’t be able to take over and the script preps in a little over a week.  If we’re describing Episode 304 as “bananas”, then I suppose this one can be termed “coconuts”.

Tomorrow = A day off! I’ll spend it running errands, writing that script, and trying to figure out how to pay this tax instalment.

Meanwhile, back on the home front…

  1. Good luck on that to – do list tomorrow! Write everything down, then feel the thrill of crossing each item off as it’s complete.

  2. “…a surprising kiss.”
    Who was it?? Who would be a surprise?? Or, did it just happen at a surprising time?? Who could it be?? Five kissing someone?? The Android kissing someone would be a surprise, I guess. Hmmmmm….?

    Does Suji stay cold or is she just really modest?

  3. Look here @Martin Gardner!! If Dark Matter needs an extra, it’s me! Not some handsome, rugged, attractive, good-looking guy only down the road in Greenock! It’s me, only down the road in Texas!!

    (joe, pssst, hire that guy!! He’s pretty hot!) 😆

  4. Nice to know that the Trump administration has not cornered the market in bananas and coconuts.

  5. @Ponytail seems to good 2 be reeal! & 2 real”…… :Z eh….? ! ?
    man, phone me 🙂 #steeming! #lookingforwork! 😛 … I#ll. be there!…. @Z
    just needs some imagination!…

  6. Hmmmmm. So Three, Five and the Android survive the space station explosion. You’ve been very quiet about the others though!

  7. Is that a gun or are you happy to see me?
    Nice Job on the Donuts, Anthony. I did have my last Tim Horton in Toronto, I think the store was in the Chinatown area.

  8. ……a surprising kiss…..I’m with what @Ponytail said!

    And, what about ‘some emotional farewells’ – are we ever prepared for this?

    Go Anthony Lemke – Donuts! #nomnom
    (Did someone get a little bit peckish and took just a wee bite from the one at the front? lol)

  9. gildermcc: Please, let this blog be a safe zone. Pretty please, with sugar on top?

    Ponytail: 😆 I’d love to be an extra too! The commute might be a bitch though.

    Gotta love people that bring donuts! Noticed you spelled it the new way and not “doughnuts”. Not sure when the new spelling happened but I like it.

    I hope the pups let you sleep late today and not pee/puke on the bed.

    I was hoping to have a fun weekend but right now, I have a date with an ice pack. 😉

    Hope Everyone has a G’Day!

  10. I hate to remember not to try and do HTML with a migraine…… Sorry Mr. M.!

  11. oooooh Donuts, mystery kisses, pups aaaand a ruggedly good looking scotsman on the blog. Sounds like a fun weekend. Count me in! <3

  12. Empathizing with you, Joe, with your tax payments….. I asked if I could pay in instalments. When they said yes, I felt like I had just lost 2stone in weight and had learnt free running parkour from Fred Astaire! Such a wonderful relief…..

    Hope you soon get to feel the same way too 😊

  13. Ha, I´m enjoying the comments today! I have a few questions for Maureen, hoping I´m not too late (again).
    – Do you design your own clothes sometimes?
    – Have you ever forgotten a pin in a costume?
    – Which one is your favourite costume for Dark Matter, and what do you like about it?
    – Is there an outfit you would love to design (for Dark Matter or in general), but haven´t had a chance yet?
    – Where do you find inspiration for your work?
    – What do you like most about your job?
    Thank you!

  14. @ Tam Dixon – I’ll swing by and pick you up. We’ll carpool. Hopefully there will be an HOV lane all the way to Toronto. 😆

  15. The only thing worse than taking a bite of a donut and putting it back is poking a hole in each of the donuts to “claim” them or to determine what the jelly/cream inside is. Sadly no Tim Horton’s in this area. That was awful nice of Anthony!

    “two surprise take-downs”: let me guess, Three gets beaten up again?

    Gail looks like she is having a good time. Five looks ready to take on any and everyone with a smile!

    The pups are looking rather expectant. You better have treats!

  16. Donuts and puppy pictures. That makes me feel all warm and fuzzy right now. “Emotional farewells” Hmmm.. Surprise kiss? Hmmm….

    Bananas and coconuts describe my life at the moment.
