As for the other genre nods, Ian McKellen got one for being the only part of The Prisoner remake that anyone liked, while Caprica, Stargate Universe, and V will duke it out with original flavor CSI for special effects.
He admits to a few mistakes, but also asks everyone to give them the chance to show what SGU can do. Apparently we’ll be seeing a lot more of what “old time” fans loved about SG1 and SGA; including some aliens, some action and more focus on the women characters.
It would be nice to find more peace amongst the fans with a pulled-together show. Although I’ll always think “Stargate University” when I see SGU. (See Dragon*Con’s Stargate track for more on how my strange mind contributed to this year’s programming.)
The article is all about how things went in the first half of Season 1 (conveniently available now on DVD). And it even includes video of him answering a question from his mom, who just can’t seem to get a copy of the poster of her son used to tease the show. (Ed. – Someone help this poor woman out!)
For those who are having trouble waiting for the show to start up again, The Hiatus Project is in full swing. (No haters allowed.)
Tonight’s episode of Stargate Universe is Earth. The cast are all a-Twitter about it; calling it one of their favorite episodes to shoot. Joe Mallozzi says that Telford finally plays his hand. (I am highly suspect of that character.)
In related news, another interview with actor David Blue who is doing his first con ever this weekend. Be kind to him, UK! (I always hear good things about Chevron, though. I bet he’ll have a great time.)
And finally, the lovely, charming and much-beloved Amanda Tapping has started a new charity drive called Sanctuary for Kids. (Get it? She stars in Sanctuary. Sanctuary for kids?) And to kick it off, there’s a really cool auction (just in time for your holiday gift-giving).
