August 24, 2008: 2008 Olympic Summary

Hey, the Olympics are finally over. In case you just got back from a two-week round-trip journey to the moon, here's what you missed…


Noir, thanks for the input. I followed you advice and resolved the clickable pic links problem. I think. Or close enough anyway. So thanks. And thanks to everyone who weighed in with ideas that ranged from "Copy and paste from file properties" to "Consult an experienced psychic". I've run a test with a pic from a recent wardrobe fitting. Let's see if it works...

All good things....

...Yes, we’re a little disappointed that we won’t be seeing each other on a regular basis anymore, or eating Steve’s famous “crack sandwiches” every morning (I must now enter baconcheesymayo-y goodness rehab). But at the same time, the SGA characters are in no way, shape, or form deceased. This franchise is a strong one, and you can bet they’re not putting SGA to bed yet; I’ve heard buzzings of DVD movies as well as crossover appearances on Stargate: Universe, so rest assured that it ain’t over. This just means more opportunities to invade other franchises and time to play other characters, and I’m quite excited to be “on the market” again. I have no idea what’s in store for me, since I’m tied up for another month with Atlantis, but I’ll be sure to let you know when I do decide on my next project...

Sanctuary - Slice of SciFi: NEW Poll week Aug 24 '08

From Slice of SciFi:

(Please follow the link to respond to the poll.)

Slice of SciFi Weekly Poll — Which SF Show Creator Will Get an Emmy Nod for 2008-2009?

Based on previews, teasers and early press reports, which of the listed creators or showrunners is most likely to get an Emmy nod for their new 2008-2009 SF-related television series?

* JJ Abrams - Fringe (Fox)
* Michael Arno - The Listener (NBC)
* Allan Ball - True Blood (HBO)
* Justin Bodle - Crusoe (NBC)
* Jerry Bruckheimer - Eleventh Hour (CBS)
* Michael Green - Kings (NBC)
* Bruno Heller - The Mentalist (CBS)
* Julian Jones - Merlin (NBC)
* Damian Kindler - Sanctuary (SCI FI)
* Ronald D. Moore - Caprica (SCI FI)
* Ronald D. Moore - Virtuality (Fox)
* Kevin Murphy - Valentine (CW)
* Scott Rosenberg, Andre Nemec, Josh Appelbaum & David E. Kelley - Life on Mars (ABC)
* Steve Shill - Knight Rider (NBC)
* Jason Smilovic - My Own Worst Enemy (NBC)
* Joss Whedon - Dollhouse (Fox)
* I don't think any will be nominated. The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences still isn't saavy enough to allow a nomination of any category outside of specialty awards for SF programming.

The film doesn't have a title yet, but Mallozzi has nicknamed it "Project Twilight" in these earliest stages of pre-production.
