July 20, 2019: Thank God for Excruciatingly slow airplane internet!

Instead of streaming this entire director's cut in one go, the intermittent drop-outs (every minute and a half or so) allow me to switch over and update my blog. So - SDCC2019 was a success.  Sure, there were some minor hiccups.  Like the 90 minute delay in our flight in.  The one hour delay in…

September, 11, 2009: Reminiscent of Scripts Past. All about the characters. Actor Josh Blacker.

Well, this takes me back.  Going through the MGM Atlantis photo archive, I came upon snaps from the season five Ronon-centric episode Broken Ties, a sequel of sorts to the previous season’s Reunion.

I would seem my laptop is not long for this world. Twice, yesterday, I fell victim to the blue screen of death. One second, I’m copy and pasting the day’s blog entry into the wordpress window and, the next, my computer is rebooting. I ended up spending most of last night watching Mad Men while…

With the end of production on Stargate Atlantis less than a month away, I’m going to do my best to introduce you all to some of the amazing unsung heroes who have worked very hard behind the scenes these many years.
