October 31, 2019: Stargate Command and the future of Stargate!

Received the following news update regarding Stargate Command, the streaming platform dedicated to all things Stargate... Alas, while sad in principle that a site dedicated to Stargate is shutting down, I think the big picture offers a more positive message.  Much of the exclusive content (interviews, behind the scenes videos, etc.) will be moving to…

October 17, 2019: Eagle-Eyed Readers, Suji & Lulu Pins, and #SecretsOfStargate – and Dark Matter!

There's not getting anything past you eagle-eyed readers!  In response to many of you who were taken by surprise... Yes, that IS a Gudetama mug Akemi got me for my birthday.  Cool, no? Oh, and, yes, we got married. The important thing is Suji and Lulu will no longer be made fun of by the…

September 14, 2019: The Stargate: Atlantis Greatest Episode Tournament Continues! Roger Cross eye candy!

What is Stargate?  My friend Michelle gave me the heads up that the answer, pictured above, appeared on a recent episode of Jeopardy.  And, yes, apparently, someone had the right question. Siege Part 3 earned a hard-fought victory to secure a playoff spot in our Stargate: Atlantis Greatest Episode Tournament.  But second place finisher Duet…

September 13, 2019: The Stargate: Atlantis Greatest Episode Tournament is underway! Alex Mallari Jr. eye candy!

And Rising takes the season 1 crown, securing its spot in the playoffs. A respectable showing from Siege Part 2, but will it be enough to grab one of the three available wildcard spots?  We'll find out soon enough. In the meantime, cast your vote for the best episode of Stargate: Atlantis's second season... https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1172631941818081280…

September 12, 2019: Window of Opportunity reigns supreme! And the Stargate: Atlantis Greatest Episode Tournament Begins!

Well, the final results are in and fan favorite Window of Opportunity has been crowned champion of the Stargate: SG-1 Greatest Episode Tournament.  I know, I know.  Many will disagree - some passionately - but that's what makes democracy so great: the fact that a majority of others are directly responsible for your unhappiness.  So…

September 10, 2019: The Stargate SG-1 Greatest Episode Tournament Championship! Goodies from the Dark Matter vault! Actor Anthony Lemke checks in!

And the polls are now open for the final showdown in the Stargate: SG-1 Greatest Episode Tournament.  Window of Opportunity is out to an early lead over Lost City Part 2, but there's still 14 hours left to cast your ballot.  Things can change.  So head on over to twitter and vote or click on…

September 9, 2019: Checking in with the Dark Matter gang!

You'll often hear people talk about members of a production as family.  And, yes, while it may often sound cliche (and, occasionally, a little suspect depending on the production), I can honestly say it's a pretty accurate description of the people I worked with on Dark Matter - most of who, uncoincidentally, I worked with…

Fan Support! A Sci-Fi Survey! And the SG-1 Elite Eight!

Wow.  Tuesday I mentioned that Playback article detailing some of the projects Vanessa Piazza and I have in development, among them a sci-fi series called TimEscape.  Well, yesterday fans, clearly impatient for another rollicking sci-fi show, got the ball rolling by establishing a TimEscapeHQ twitter account.  It's early, as several pieces still have to fall…

August 19, 2019: The Stargate: SG-1 Greatest Episode Tournament is set!

We have our last two contestants.  The field is set.  Here are your first round match-ups: #16 Urgo vs #1 Window of Opportunity The hottest episode coming into the tournament, Urgo rides a write-in vote and upset victory in the playoff round to capture the last seed.  But it has a tough first round match-up…

August 8, 2019: It’s the Stargate’s Greatest Episode Tournament (Qualifying Rounds)!

Early evening sound design meeting for Utopia Falls' first episode tonight.  Things are moving fast! Hey, over on twitter, I'm doing daily polls to find out what the fans felt were the BEST episodes of each season of Stargate.  We are presently through the first three seasons and, so far, these are the results: No…

August 3, 2019: My Stargate way of thinking!

Whenever someone asks me about the likelihood of a new Stargate series gracing our screens, my response is always: "It's not a matter of if, but when".  Now people assume I must have some insider knowledge, but the truth is I know about as much as any of you do about what MGM has planned…

July 1, 2019: Hallucinatory Wraith Feeding!

Came across this little gem on one of my old hard-drives - what appears to be footage from an extended hallucinatory wraith feeding sequence.  It's actually surprisingly disquieting.  Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to name the episode. I celebrated Canada Day by completing my latest (and last?) revision on that big…

Finales I Have Wrought!

12 finales in 18 seasons.  10 in the last 13. February 23rd, 2001... May 17, 2002... March 25, 2005... March 10, 2006... March 7, 2008... January 9, 2009... June 11, 2010... May 9, 2011...
