Only one day to the explosive SGU premiere! And, in advance of the big event, I offer you this handy visual guide to our extensive cast of characters:
Christine writes: ““If it’s successful do you think it could restart Stargate Atlantis?
“No – that’s done, I can tell you one thousand percent!”
Any comment on the above statement by Robert Carlyle. How can he be so certain that SGA is done when fans keep getting told that a movie may still be made.”
Answer: You’re misinterpreting what he said . Te interviewer is asking about the chances of SGA returning as a SERIES – which, as Robert pointed out, is not going to happen, something I’ve said several times in the past.
Sebi Meyer writes: ““The finish line is within sight!” Odd way to put it. It STARTS on Friday, it doesn’t end.”
Answer: It starts for the fans this Friday night, but the finish line for the show’s first season of production is within sight – only on more month!
Thornyrose writes: “Though speaking of pics, when are the pooches going to post another on their Twitter account?”
Answer: They did last night.
O6untouchable writes: “SGU: best birthday present ever!”
Answer: Happy early birthday!
Fuchsia writes: “Joe, please tell my husband Graham to stop being boring and to watch SGU with me on Friday night.”
Answer: Graham, stop being boring and watch SGU with Fuchsia tomorrow night!
DasNdanger writes: “Joe…are you nervous about the premiere, or excited?”
Answer: Let’s go with “cautiously optimistic”. I think that Stargate: Universe is a great show and I’m proud of the work we’ve done. Still, if there’s one thing I know about predicting fan response it’s that it’s impossible to predict fan response. I’m continually amazed by the wonderful shows that fail to capture an audience and end up being canceled well before their time (Firefly and Arrested Development come to mind), and equally amazed by the truly atrocious programming that DOES manage to find viewers and survive (too numerous to mention). So that said, I’m thinking positive thoughts, not so much for myself (after ten years with the franchise, I think I’ll be okay) but for the many, many incredible individuals I’ve been fortunate enough to work with on SGU this year. They’re good people and I wish them nothing but the best – like, say, another four seasons. At least!
