Impressions: the teaser sequence

(For the NEW Big Finish Production Stargate Atlantis audio drama, Impressions, starring Kavan Smith [Maj. Evan Lorne].)

I was given permission to post the teaser sequence to Impressions here on the blog when it was announced, and since details appeared on the Big Finish website today, here goes:

A brief excerpt:



Neutral, narrating space.

LORNE:Light and shade.

The dappled green of forest leaves. The splashes of white foam on dark grey seas. The pools of light that collect like water in the fissures of a rock face.

Light and shade, colour and form; that’s how I try to see the world. The boundaries between one thing and another. The distinctions.

Anybody who carries a gun in the name of peace needs to be comfortable with shades of grey. I live in no man’s land, surrounded by water and working under fire. Caught between extremes.

This is what I try to capture in paint on canvas. It’s like trying to bottle lightning. But it helps ...

Warehouse 13 - NBCUMV: Warehouse 13 Begins Production



Published: February 20, 2009

Stars Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly, Saul Rubinek

New York, NY – February 20, 2009 – SCI FI's newest original series Warehouse 13 has begun production in Toronto starring Eddie McClintock (Bones, Desperate Housewives), Joanne Kelly (The Dresden Files, Vanished) and Saul Rubinek (Blind Justice, Frasier). This new one-hour dramedy from Universal Cable Productions is slated to premiere in July 2009 with 11 episodes including the previously produced two hour pilot.

After saving the life of the President, two Secret Service agents find themselves abruptly transferred to Warehouse 13 -- a massive, top-secret storage facility in windswept South Dakota which houses every strange artifact, mysterious relic, fantastical object and supernatural souvenir ever collected by the U.S. government. The Warehouse's caretaker Artie (Rubinek) charges Pete (McClintock) and Myka (Kelly) with chasing down reports of supernatural and paranormal activity in search of new objects to cache at the Warehouse, as well as helping him to control the warehouse itself.

McClintock plays Pete Lattimer, a handsome, athletic Secret Service Agent who's impulsive, intuitive nature often leads him to leap before he looks. There is hardly a situation so dire to which he can't find the lighter side.

Kelly portrays Secret Service Agent Myka Bering, a woman born to be an agent. Organized and focused, she believes in hard work, solid planning and steadfast execution. Needless to say, it is an approach that causes conflict with Pete's off-the-cuff style.

Rubinek is Artie Nielsen, a long-time Secret Service Agent who is in charge of Warehouse 13. Enthusiastic about his work, and made a bit "eccentric" by his long tenure in the isolated warehouse, Artie is happy to have Pete and Myka join him in the pursuit of objects that "threaten to ruin the world's day."

And CCH Pounder (The Shield), who appeared in the pilot, returns in a guest-starring role as Artie's boss, Mrs. Frederic. Her overshadowing and enigmatic presence directs the team's ongoing missions to contain the peculiar, dangerous and threatening objects that must be secured at any cost.

Warehouse 13 comes from Universal Cable Productions and is executive produced by Jack Kenny (The Book of Daniel) who also serves as showrunner. David Simkins (Dresden Files) is executive producer; Jace Alexander (Burn Notice, Rescue Me) is co-executive producer and director; and Stephen Surjik (Monk, Burn Notice) is producer/director.

Summer time

By Denette Wilford


‘Terminator’ gives geeks a reason to stay home on Friday nights

OK, so it’s no surprise that Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles was getting pummelled in the ratings by its competition last season. Monday night has become the new Thursday as must-see TV, and The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Chuck, The Bachelor and Gossip Girl were all worthy foes.

With the recent returns of American Idol and 24 in the Fox lineup, taking up major real estate on the schedule, the network had virtually no choice but to move Terminator from Mondays to Friday nights starting tomorrow. And while that might not seem like an ideal situation for a show on the bubble, this one might actually work in the series’ favour.

Now teamed up with the much-anticipated Dollhouse from Joss Whedon, the two shows seem like a match made in heaven. And Friday-night stay-at-homers will be reaping the benefits since they can hunker down and watch two straight hours of sci-fi goodness on Fox.

Creator and executive producer Josh Friedman and series star Summer Glau (Cameron) discussed the move to Friday night, Fox’s expectations, Cameron’s backstory and the season’s jaw-dropping finale.

A brief excerpt:

What are your thoughts on the new Friday timeslot and what advantages or disadvantages do you feel it offers?
Josh Friedman: Well, the advantage I see is that we were getting our asses kicked on Monday nights, so I’m happy to move to Fridays.

Summer Glau: I don’t think we were getting our asses kicked; I just think there’s a lot of stuff on Mondays.
JF: Yes, it was crowded on Monday and I think that Friday gives Fox an opportunity to promote us together with Dollhouse, which seems like a pretty exciting show. It’s an opportunity for a fresh start and we have a lot of great episodes in the back nine. So I don’t think anyone really knows what to expect in this environment but I feel good about it.

SG: I think it’s a great move. I think its fun and I think that the shows are very well-paired. I love Joss [Whedon, the creator] and I know some of the actors on Dollhouse and I’m rooting for us both. I think it’s going to be a fresh start for us.
