by Darren Sumner

Visit the GateWorld Podcast page for more about the show!

On the table for discussion this week is the use of advanced technology in the Stargate universe! From transporters and locator chips to Merlin’s weapon and the Ark of Truth, Darren and David ponder just how much these are storytelling devices, and how much they are used as crutches. We’ll also find out what you think in this week’s listener mail.

As always, first we’ll recap the latest news from the Stargate universe, and give you a very special preview of GateWorld’s new interview with Samantha Carter actress Amanda Tapping!

Stargate: Universe - Joseph Mallozzi's Blog Update Apr 21 '09

From Joseph Mallozzi's blog update for April 21, 2009:

April 21, 2009: Advice and Observation Cookies, In Life We Are All Winners (Although Some Of Us Are Clearly Bigger Winners Than Others), More Scripts On Deck, Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots on Hoth.

... Hey, I read the first draft of Time yesterday (Rob apparently wrote it during his free time driving to and from work every day) and it is brilliant. Now “brilliant” is a word I tend to reserve for works of supreme magnificence like Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus” or my Aunt Fannie’s Russian Teacakes, but it applies here to a script that is, without a doubt, the very best of its kind. It’s delightfully intricate and thoroughly engaging, full of surprising twists and heart-rending character moments.

And speaking of character moments - today, I read Brad’s finished version of Darkness and Light. This one has got me very excited as well, particularly for the remained climactic sequence.

After lunch, Carl, Paul, Lawren, and I headed over to the set in Stage 2 or what I’m referring to as Hoth. Brian and Justin regaled us with their interpretation of Rock ’Em Sock ’Em Robots after which we chatted until the airborne particulates threatened to choke off my airway, forcing me back out - but not before marveling over Brian’s commitment to learning everything he can about the production process. Not only does he hang around set to watch them shoot scenes he isn’t even in but, the other day, he actually accompanied Carl and co. on a location survey! Not only does this kid have a terrific attitude - polite, humble, hardworking - but he’s a fantastic actor as well. Since nobody’s perfect, I fully expect to eventually find out he’s a robot or an alien doing an all-too-good impersonation of a human life form - but hopefully that won’t happen until the end of season one at the earliest.

Stargate: Universe - GateWorld: Brad Wright/Robert C. Cooper Audio Interview

At GateWorld:


GateWorld talks with Brad Wright and Robert C. Cooper

Two-thousand and nine is a big year for the Stargate franchise. The second series has come to an end, with plans for an Atlantis movie on the horizon. The radically unique third series, Stargate Universe, premieres this fall. During our visit to the studio in Vancouver this month, GateWorld had the rare privilege to sit down face-to-face with the two men who are shepherding this show.

Brad Wright and Robert C. Cooper have been at the helm of the Stargate franchise for 12 years, Wright creating Stargate SG-1 with Jonathan Glassner in 1997, and Cooper and Wright creating Atlantis in 2004.

Though production on SGU is currently locked down tight, the executive producers talked exclusively with us about the series and what else is in the works for Stargate. In the interview they share their reasons for wanting SGU to be different, the large, ensemble cast, and how the series will stand apart. We get answers about aliens, the Destiny, using the Stargate, and more. We also get an update on the SG-1 and Atlantis movies.

GateWorld's interview with Brad Wright and Robert C. Cooper runs about 30 minutes. Listen online at your leisure, download it to your MP3 player, or subscribe now to the iTunes podcast! The full interview is also [at the link above].

A brief excerpt:

GW: Stargate Universe.
BW: We're in the middle of shooting episode five right now! We keep looking around and touching wood and waiting for the other shoe to drop ... but damn, it's been a good time.

GW: Clipping along.
BW: Everybody is coming together. We couldn't be happier with our cast.

GW: They're all twittering like crazy, they love it. [Laughter]
BW: Well, you know, it's not a guarantee that you're going to suddenly all start clicking and the stories are going to be working and everything is going to be the way you hoped it was going to be.

RC: I think there is a lot of fear amongst the fans that it's going to be so different that it's not Stargate, or that it's not going to be something that they like. They want a science fiction show to watch. I think that there is certainly a need out there for science fiction product. There is a demand from people. They want good genre programming. I think they are afraid it's going to be too dark, or that it's not going to be something they want out of a "sci-fi" show. But I don't think that's going to be the case.

I mean, dark and edgy is kind of a couple of buzz words that people like to attach to things. At the end of the day, it's going to have a lot of the things that I think people have always liked about Stargate. The sort of sense of adventure and exploration ...
