Construction begins on “the shipyard”.

The costume department wants to incorporate these into some wardrobe in season 4.  They’re beetle shells.

No.  Really.

Okay.  Episode 310 title poll.  Tomorrow for sure!

In the meantime, here’s the picture of Suji to tide you over…

  1. Hey Joe
    7 days to go in production, Holy Cow it’s almost on my TV! 😂 Can’t wait…
    You guys watching Blade Runner over there?

  2. LOVE the nod to Blade Runner via the Raza mess triptych!!!
    Indeed another SF classic. Let’s hope the sequel in production doesn’t suck as much as Force Awakens did to Star Wars!!

  3. Joe-

    First can’t wait for the new season of DM! It’s looking really good.

    I know you haven’t asked for mailbag questions but one hit me today.

    Now that plans for a Stargate reboot have fallen through has there been any talk amongst you writers/showrunners about approaching MGM and seeing if there is a chance to wrap up SGU?

  4. Blade Runner is one of my favourite movies of all time. Still love it.

    That ship yard set is looking amazing!

    Suji is a little beauty as always!

  5. Btw, it’s “Tide you over”. It’s not meant to suggest bondage with a dog. 😀

    Love the triptych. Love the show.

  6. “I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those memories will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.”
    –Roy Batty from Blade Runner

    Nicely done Greg!

    B R U C E!!
    R O N!!
    Can’t wait to see the finished shipyard!

    Might I suggest turning the beetle shells into fingernails? I’m picturing a villainess with long green fingernails….perhaps a shady black market procurement?

    Suji’s cuteness factor is exponentially increased by her banana tshirt. So glad she was adopted into such a loving home!

  7. “Director Ron Murphy snapping me snapping him snapping me snapping him snapping me…”

    Shut up fool! 😆

    (hehehehehe…Look what you started Joe. I can’t stop saying that now.)

    “here’s the picture of Suji to tie you over…”

    I know you are the writer and everything, but isn’t that “tide you over”?

  8. How is Suji doing?

    I can’t believe you are nearly done on this year’s episodes!

    The pictures are great. Eww beetle shells. In fact the top one still has the antennae!

  9. Aah, Blade Runner! My most favourite film of all time. Nice one Greg.
    I’m not sure I’ll ever watch the new version when it comes out – can’t believe the original could EVER be bettered (visually, I mean) It was just so different from anything else at the time

    I thought those beetle shells were false nails! (I should really have my morning coffee first before I read this!)

    Little superstar Suji is looking gooood.

  10. Dear Mr. Mallozzi,

    I read your March 31, 2013, blog on how you wish you could have wrapped up SG Atlantis with a final movie. I wish you could have done that too!

    I wish circumstances would change and that you would be given a chance to go back and do that (and/or even consider returning Atlantis to television).

    For the last several months, I am watching almost all of Atlantis episodes for the “first time” with my PG and PG-13 kids (skipping a rare episode here and there). They find the stories exciting and rich with surprises, excitement, twists/turns, great acting, great characters, great character development, lots of science-fact and science-fiction, and fun. You even added young actors to some of the episodes — that my kids immediately connect with.

    Watching the series with my kids is especially enjoyable for me because I get to revisit each episode through their eyes. Most of the episodes are special because after an episode, we often take an opportunity to talk about the characters (all fantastic!), timelines, alternate realities, science-facts discussed, and episode issues affecting the space-time-continuum!

    Last night, there was that episode with John and Rodney racing each other with their remote control cars down one of the hallways on Atlantis — that my son and daughter greatly related to since they “battle” each other with remote control helicopters. Since finishing that episode, I realized that we now getting close to the end of season 5 — the end of the road for the Atlantis series. My kids already told me not to worry that because they said we can just start the series over again.

    I can certainly understand that it might be nearly impossible for you to make the SG-Atlantis movie that you really wanted to do, but I thought I would still write to ask to see if you could just try — again — to find the support you would need to finally bring that final movie back to life — either as a movie for the theaters, or perhaps as a movie for television.

    My kids are doing very well in math and science, but, I think the science and math woven into each SG-Atlantis episode (learned through the characters and seen through the special effects) also adds to their learning experience by further piquing their interest and imagination. So, if nothing else, I would like to thank you, your colleagues, all the actors, and especially MGM, for all the many years of fantastic science-fiction entertainment that all you have brought to all of us original viewers — not only for our generation, but also for the next.

    Kind regards,

    Ron H. PhD, MD.

  11. While taking care of being sick = binge watching lots of TV movies, been thru S 1 and 2 of DM.

    Saw a movie named: the assignment
    weird movie but – watched it for Sigourney Weaver.
    Welllllll….high light is – Alex Zahara peddling pit bulls and Paul McGillion – I think as a prosecutor or legal type.

  12. Tea with Lemon Zingers and a Blade Runner triptych with a cute pic of Suji is a nice way to start the day. It is raining inside-out-umbrella rain here, the squelch of my shoes as I slogged up the hill was delightful. Bring on the DM, I’m ready for summer and action. I’ve been saving up my latest Expanse ep and I’m enjoying all the great press the show is getting this season.

  13. Whoops, todays cookies are Savannah Smiles not Lemon Zingers; I am the Travolta of misnaming cookies.

  14. Thanks, Greg for another fantastic triptych.

    Would love to meet Bruce McDonald!

    Construction is just beginning on the shipyard? Is this currently happening now – and only a week left of production?

    @Ron Lovely comment you’ve posted. If only it were somehow possible for SGA to return.

  15. The sets are looking good! It must be cheaper to build sets than use CGI. Yes?

    Suji! You could just post pup pictures and we would be thrilled. 🙂

  16. I hang my head in shame that I have never seen Blade Runner. Do I get my sci-fi fan wings taken away from me now? It’s on the list of movies to see. Maybe once Patrick gets settled in the group home I will have so much time on my hands I will be able to do more and more things on the bucket list (which has now grown to 4 pages single-spaced.
