Stargate Atlantis - Spacecast's Hypaspace: Video with Joe, David and Jason

From Spacecast:

In January, Canada's Spacecasts' Hypaspace series broadcast a segment on the premiere of SGA's season three on Spacecast. In this 7 minute segment, there are interviews with Joe Flanigan, David Hewlett and Jason Momoa. Also, behind the scenes clips of filming on SGA ("Echoes"), and a look at the SGA action figures from Diamond Select Toys.

Memorable quotes:

David Hewlett (about Rodney McKay): "I'm the C3P0 of Stargate."

Joe Flanigan (regarding Ronon) "He is in effect, my Chewbacca."

David Hewlett (about the Shep action figure, specifically, Shep's hair): "It's a crime against plastic," and "Be afraid!"

Jason (regarding relationship between Ronon and McKay): "It's the big guy and the little dog." (Jason does some small dog yipps and barks)

The Stargate segment is the first 7 minutes of the 23 minutes episode, which also covers the Consumer Electronics show and the premiere of Cloverfield.

Haunted by Morjana... and the Googlions


Okay, so... tonight's episode: The Kindred Pt. 1, working titled "Rise of the Googlions". Hilarious. That was just a silly working title Carl Binder came up with, but everybody liked saying it so much that, yup, you guessed it - it actually ended up on some of the production paperwork, specifically art department sketches. And
then it was used frequently in conversation as well. "What's up with Googlions?" "When are we shooting Googlions?". So, as a result, we've become a little more careful with our working titles.

And, of course, I now have to be extra careful with my spoilers. But what I can tell you about The Kindred Pt. 1 is that Connor Trinnear's Michael plays a central role in this two parter. So all you half-wraith fans, get your popcorn ready. And also this is sort of a "Teyla" story as well. Okay, I better shut up now before I get in
more trouble. Look for Joe Mallozzi to discuss this episode at length in his blog tomorrow at

Stargate SG-1: Colin Cunningham Interview

With many thanks (again) to keeno at GateWorld Forum for the heads up:

Stargate Planet has a new interview with Colin Cunningham: (in English)

Colin discusses his new endeavors, Centrigrade and JPod, and working on SG1, including the new SG1 movie, Continuum.

A brief excerpt: Your name appears on the cast list for the made for DVD movie "Stargate:Continuum". How was it to be back at the Stargate set and what can you tell us about filming your scenes? Any funny stories? Pranks?

CC: It was an absolute blast. Martin Wood was actually helping me put together my own project at the time, 'Centigrade'. He was kind of mentoring me through the process of directing. And so, when he called and said that he and John Smith has a little something for me, if I was willing to help them out, it was a no brainer. I owe many people over at Stargate a lot. I truly do. Deluise, Martin Wood, John Smith, Michael Greenburg, Brad Wright, all those guys. And when I needed help, they were there.

Stargate Atlantis

10 pm/ET SCI FI New

When a science-fiction character rises from the dead, it can be in a good way (like Spock from Star Trek III) or a bad way (à la Night of the Living Dead). Fortunately for a crew already dealing with a catastrophic sickness affecting human populations, fan-favorite physician Carson Beckett looks nothing like a zombie in Part 1 of this two-parter. Paul McGillion reprises his role as Dr. Beckett, whose hair and eyebrows have grown back following the explosive tumor that supposedly killed him in Season 3.
