Where do you get your scifi fix?
Do you read?
Do you check out the latest big screen offerings (I’ve been hearing great things about Annihilation)?
Possibly tune in to traditional broadcast homes like FOX (The X-Files, The Gifted, The Orville) and CW (The 100, Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Black Lightning)?
Perhaps go the cable route with channels like AMC (The Walking Dead, Into the Badlands, Humans), BBC America (Class, Dirk Gently, Dr. Who) or even Freeform (Cloak & Dagger, New Warriors, Misfits)?
Maybe peruse streamers like Netflix (Black Mirror, Dark Matter, Sense 8, Stranger Things, Travelers), Amazon (The Man in the High Castle, Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams), and Hulu (The Handmaid’s Tale, Dimension 404, Runaways)?
Well, MGM seemingly has plans to give you one more choice. With the launch of their streaming platform, Stargatecommand, the studio has sought to give longtime fans a one-stop shop for all their Stargate needs. But, as evidenced by their reaching out to me on the heels of Dark Matter’s cancellation, their long-term plans extend beyond Stargate to other scifi offerings. If all goes well, in three years down the line, we could not only have new Stargate on the platform, but several new scifi shows as well. Perhaps even a Dark Matter miniseries.
Imagine having a broadcast/streaming home dedicated to scifi? Unheard of, but believe me, it’s closer than you think.
And this is why I’m asking not only Stargate fans, but Dark Matter fans and fans of science fiction in general, to join our campaign. Getting Stargate back will only be a first step. A big one, admittedly, but one we’re closer to taking now than at any time in the franchise’s history.
Starting today, we have exactly two weeks to marshal our forces, explain the game plan to our army of gaters and allies and, ultimately, convince MGM that it’s time to launch that fourth Brad Wright/Robert Cooper Stargate series. And, over the course of the next few blog entries, I’m going to break down exactly how we’re going to do that.
Head on over to twitter and follow @StargateNow for all the latest campaign updates AND a plethora of Stargate-related goodies including, most recently:
