Gate Geekiness for the Day

The SGA episode that will launch a thousand fanfics, Doppleganger, seems to be getting some good buzz. Hopefully ratings will support it.

The show’s writer/director, Robert C. Cooper, dropped by Joe Mallozzi’s blog to answer some questions about the episode.

Joe also reports that the new-fangled “Ratings +3” numbers that add in DVR and internet viewings show a nice little jump for the first episode. Here’s hoping that will sway SciFi into renewing for Season 5.

In other Gate news, Paul McGillion tells GateWorld that his two episodes aren’t just gimmicks but involve some “meaty” storyline for Carson Beckett.

More fanfics?
