Gerri and Eugenia attended a convention with the inimitable Stargate Atlantis actor David Hewlett, Dr “Meredith” Rodney McKay. David is a great showman, he kept the audience entertained, so we thought that you might like to hear him too. He talks about Stargate Atlantis, his love of Doctor Who and the movie he wrote, directed, and starred in “A Dog’s Breakfast”. So get listening!
As a Geek if you could not have a TARDIS, then the next best thing was a Stargate! If you are a fan Eugenia and Gerri have a treat for you! In this episode they discuss the many incarnations of Stargate from the film to SG1 to Universe! They discuss the strong characters that appeared in this franchise and that were not only limited to the men! Many films do not make a good transition to the smaller screen, but Stargate was one of them, it was full of humour, did not take itself seriously and allowed us all to think that it could be one of us. Eugenia and Gerri have a treat for all the fans of the franchise with not only one, but three interviews from icons from the show. The inimitable Gary Jones who played Walter Herriman, the “Gate Guy” who is the one that takes us to all three incarnations of the franchise, then Teryl Rothery, Dr Janet Frazier, the one that we lost and who could “kick-ass” any medical condition that came her way and finally the “Woman in Charge” Torri Higginson, the first non-military leader in the franchise. Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank, Carissa, Rand and the crew of OZ Comic Con www.ozcomiccon.com for their interviews with Teryl and Torri and Darren and Jason from Gifts for the Geek, www.giftsforthegeek.com.au for the interview with Gary. Enjoy this very special episode.
Gerri and Eugenia and their two good friends Marlene and Sarah went to an Armageddon Convention in Melbourne. This was Sarah’s first time at a convention and she attended because most of the guests were from Stargate Atlantis. So they decided to all get together and talk about the show. Did they just talk about the show or did it turn into a discussion about one friend’s obsession with a character from this show?
The world of B grade Sci Fi movies is the topic of discussion in this podcast. Eugenia and Gerri talk about memorable movies that don’t quite make the A list of movies or even the C and D lists! They talk about Plan 9 from Outer Space, Starship Troopers and Slipstream just to name a few. However there is one movie that they both rave about and that is Sand Sharks produced by and starring Corin Nemec from Stargate, Parker Lewis Can’t Lose and Supernatural fame. In a very chatty interview with Corin, Eugenia and Gerri find out a lot about his many interests and experiences being part of a growing television industry. Their thanks go to Gifts for the Geek www.giftsforthegeek.com.au and The Hub Productions www.thehubproductions.com for the opportunity to interview Corin. Corin will be present at Oz Comic Con in Adelaide 2012 www.ozcomiccon.com
Gerri and Eugenia talk about Sci Fi villains due to interviewing Peter Williams who starred as Apophis in Stargate at a Supanova event www.supanova.com.au. You hear Peter talk about his time on SG-1 and how he set the bar for the other System Lords. Some of the villains Gerri and Eugenia discuss are of course Apophis, Scorpius from Farscape, The Master from Doctor Who, Darth Vader and a number of other baddies from Star Trek. Thanks goes to their friends Jason and Darren from Gifts for the Geek www.giftsforthegeek.com.au for the interview.
