Spoiler Chat

Alois in France: My favorite show, Stargate: Atlantis, is back next month! Do you have scoop?

I do, thanks to our new supersecret and rock solid SGA source (ahem, Jen's little brother Mark, who's seen the premiere). According to little bro: "It wasn't quite as awesome as last season's finale, but it was still a very good episode." He also reports: (a) Col. Carter (Amanda Tapping) from SG-1 is a great addition to Atlantis but at the end of the episode they reveal that they are replacing her with Woolsey (Robert Picardo)...

Stargate: Continuum - MGM Stargate: Ben Browder Exclusive Interview

Stargate Magazine Exclusive!

June 23, 2008 (Actors)

Memphis’ second favorite son, otherwise known as Ben Browder, talks movies, snow angels and the wonders of pole vaulting.

A brief excerpt:

Did you enjoy shooting the movie?

BB: "We had a wonderful time shooting the movie. We had a whole refrigerated set, they built a freighter on the sound stage, there was so much cool stuff. And things that really we haven’t seen in 10 years of Stargate SG-1. I don’t think we’ve ever seen a submarine coming up through the ice while we’re standing there, and it’s a real submarine. I don’t think there are many movies that could get a real submarine coming through the ice, if any! We spent a week shooting in the Arctic, again something exceedingly rare for actors and a crew to do."

June 23, 2008 in Television

I've been hoarding some Stargate links for a while, mostly meaning to read them myself but with the intention of sharing them once the pile got big enough. Here it is, interviews, stories, and probably a fair amount of spoilers for the new fifth season of Atlantis and Stargate: Continuum.

There's also a few things from Battlestar Galactica thrown in for flavor, if that's your thing.

Posted on Monday 23 June 2008

Brent Spiner at Creation Grand Slam

While Brent Spiner answered questions at a panel at Creation Entertainment’s Grand Slam convention in Burbank, California, James Marsters was giving autographs in the area behind the stage. Noting the line of people waiting for a signature, Spiner tells us that he’s a Marsters fan himself. “I like Spike. I wanted him to play Shinzon in Nemesis!” Words: Abbie Bernstein

A brief excerpt:

Were any of the actors emotional when Star Trek: The Next Generation filmed its last episode?

Michael Dorn was emotional. He was crying and kept spitting those fake teeth out…But the ‘ending-ending’ really was Nemesis. That was really emotional.
