Well, even though I was back at the office today in body, in spirit I was with Will Waring and co. over at Green Timbers where they were shooting day #4 of Harmony. I hope my spirit brought an umbrella because it was downright miserable this morning.

Not so miserable at the production offices though. The first draft of The Last Man is out and it’s fantastic. Paul is now doing is pass on Outcast. Carl was at post all day, cutting Quarantine. And Marty G. is preparing for his last day of prep on Trio before catching a flight to T.O. for the Toronto International Film Festival Premiere of his movie YPF. I did an interview with SciFi’s Kathy Huddleston, checked out the test on the tilting set, talked to Joel Goldsmith regarding the end of this Mortal Coil (Oh yeah, watched a Day One Mix of This Mortal Coil), and generally lolly-gagged, dilly-dallied, shilly-shallied, dawdled, frittered, and toddled. No, strike that. There was no toddling. Tomorrow, I’m heading to Green Timbers for Harmony day #5: the other night shoot!

Answer: I’m thinking “Havermaat”.

Answer: Depends on who’s faster.

Reponses: 1) Non. 2) Non. 3) Des fois, oui. 4) Lire et dormir.

Kellie writes: “Now that you've all-but admitted that Teyla and Teal'c are Ronon's parents, when will you admit that Walter and Chuck the technicians are long lost brothers who instant message each other every time the wormhole is established? The subtext is so clear and we fans aren't stupid. Just make it official already.”

Answer: Thanks for the giving away the plot to the season four finale.

PG15 writes: “ Speaking of the Weather Network piece you guys did, I've managed to upload it onto YouTube. You cans see it HERE.”


Answer: Thanks for that. I keep missing it.

Anonymous #1 writes: “What does Keller have over Carson besides being a woman? What makes her "better" then Carson, forcing him to be "killed" off in the most ridiculus scifi way in existance?”

Answer: Our decision with regard to the Carson character was made well before we had even entertained the notion of a possible new CMO.

2007 Fall Preview: New Sci-Fi / Fantasy Series

From Mark Wilson,

Your Guide to Sci-Fi / Fantasy.

Fall TV Preview Part 1: The New Shows

The Fall 2007 premieres are fast approaching – in fact, the first sci-fi show of the new season, Torchwood, debuts this Saturday on BBC America (more on that show to come). The rest of the new shows premiere later in the month and are a real mixed bag: some look fresh and interesting, while a few bear the marks of an ill-omened
gestation and painful delivery.

In my overview of the season's new shows I sort out which of the freshmen sci-fi and fantasy shows look promising, including Pushing Daisies; some are real question marks, including NBC's heavily hyped Bionic Woman revamp. Wherever possible I'll give fuller reviews closer to the premiere dates, starting with Torchwood later this
week. Two shows originally slated for the Fall season, The Sarah Connor Chronicles (yes, that Sarah Connor) and the much-anticipated New Amsterdam, have been pushed back to midseason, so I'll talk about them then.

Part two of my Fall preview will detail what we can expect from returning shows this season, including Heroes, Smallville, Stargate Atlantis, Supernatural, and more, so stay tuned.

"Stargate: Atlantis" Season 3 is anchored with a compelling ensemble cast including Joe Flanigan (The Other Sister), Torri Higginson (The English Patient), Rachel Luttrel (Imposter) David Hewlett ("The Triangle") and Mitch Pileggi ("The X-Files"). Executive produced by Brad Wright and Robert C. Cooper, the five-disc DVD set is flooded with bonus features including audio commentaries for 19 episodes, many behind-the-scenes featurettes and a profusion of photo and production design galleries.
