Well, there you have it.  Children of the Gods with the relatively easy win over 2001, moving on to the next round of the Stargate: SG-1 Greatest Episode Tournament.  Only one spot remains to be claimed and two fairly evenly matched episodes are going to battle it out:

Someone mentioned this article online today.  It’s a profile/interview with my friend (and former Lost Girl and Dark Matter Executive Producer) Vanessa Piazza.  Previously, the article was only available to subscribers but now it is free to read here:

How Vanessa Piazza Keeps Her Shingle Steady

It’s a great read and includes this giant tidbit of information –


I’ve already mentioned these three projects shortly after this article was first published: TimEscape, Little Heaven, and Crosswind.  All equally exciting.  All in various stages of development.  The latter two are collaborations with the authors, and both have been an utter delight to work with.  Craig Davidson, aka Nick Cutter, author of Little Heaven, is one of the fastest writers I have ever worked with.  He turns things around faster than I do – which is saying A LOT.  And it’s all been brilliant – and downright scary.  It’s been an equal pleasure to work on Crosswind with writer Gail Simone and artist Cat Staggs, both legends in the comic field and incredibly smart, supportive, and very funny.  As for TimEscape, it’s a solo original and the closest thing I would compare it to would be the fun and funniest episodes of Stargate and Dark Matter: Window of Opportunity, Moebius, Ripple Effect, All the Time in the World, Isn’t That A Paradox?  And, at the end of the day, it’s a show with a ton of heart.   So… fingers crossed.

So, I’m thinking of doing a taste test of the city’s best fried chicken sandwiches.  And then I came across this article today: https://www.blogto.com/eat_drink/2019/08/people-are-upset-popeyes-stores-toronto-dont-have-new-chicken-sandwiches/

Apparently Popeye’s can’t be bothered to introduce its chicken sandwich to Canada.  WTF?

  1. Can’t wait to see those shows! I’m not familiar with Crosswind, but the other two do sound great!

    I can’t really speak to the whole Popeye’s controversy, as they don’t appear to have any restaurants east of the ON/PQ border! So, I’m going to go all sour grapes and say the sandwiches must be terrible, anyway. 🙁

  2. “Taste testing the city’s best fried chicken sandwiches” — YES, I’m up for it! XD

  3. That sci-fi is one I am absolutely looking forward to. Haven’t seen a good horror in a long time either, so I will definitely check the other two titles too. May I ask what does it take for a book to get filmed?

    1. It’s the same as getting anything produced – with the added step of acquiring the film & television rights.
