Episode Guide

A brief excerpt from the Production section of the Episode Guide:

"David Hewlett and I have a ton of stuff, there's a lot of Beckett and McKay stuff in it. We're doing a scene right now that's hopefully pretty funny. The whole crew is laughing at our scene in a Wraith Dart so it's really funny. We're having some really good laughs doing it. It's been great. David and I are pretty much throughout the episode and we have a lot of stuff together. So it's a big Beckett and McKay episode."
("Carson Beckett" actor Paul McGillion, in an interview with Pop Culture Zoo)

Stargate Atlantis / Sanctuary - Sanctuary Marathon Dec. 19 '08 just updated their incomplete preliminary December schedule through December 19 '08, and it reflects a Sanctuary Marathon on December 19:

12/19/2008 7:00P SANCTUARY
12/19/2008 8:00P SANCTUARY
12/19/2008 9:00P SANCTUARY

12/20/2008 12:00A SANCTUARY

Due to the Christmas/New Year Holiday Season, the episodes airing from 7-10pm will probably be reruns.

As Battlestar Galactica is scheduled to resume it's fourth season run on January 16 '09 (at 10pm, Sanctuary's time slot), it's quite possible that Dec. 19 Sanctuary episode at 10pm could be a new episode (with a repeat at Midnight), to allow for the full run of Sanctuary before January 16 '09. This would be Sanctuary's 11th episode.

Allowing as there are no new Sanctuary episodes on Nov. 28 because of Halloween special programming and possibly no new episodes on either Dec. 26 and Jan. 2 for the Holiday weekends (Christmas/New Years), that leaves Jan 9th for the final two episodes of Sanctuary's first season. (All speculation on my part, of course.)

I also can't see Stargate Atlantis getting any new episodes on the holiday weekends of Dec. 26 and Jan. 2., it's possible the series final two episodes could premiere on Jan. 16 with Vegas and Enemy at the Gate on Jan. 23rd.

All speculation on my part, of course.
