Stargate:Revolution news

Posted in Stargate with tags , , , , on October 6, 2010 by Geek Tv
Not the news I hoped for, but it’s news whatsoever so…

Brad Wright has confirmed that he is still keen to produce more projects expanding the worlds of Stargate SG-1 and Stargate: Atlantis. However, the producer told GateWorld that plans for two straight-to-DVD Stargate movies have been shelved. 😦

“The only thing that is blocking [those movies] is the fact that the direct-to-DVD market has gone away,” he argued. “We were very fortunate with [previous films] Ark of Truth and Continuum to be among the last very successful direct-to-DVD releases before it all stopped happening. The market has changed, and it’s still changing, and it’s not what it was.” Wright explained that he is now exploring the possibility of continuing both series in a new medium. “We were ready to go… and the climate never got better,” he said. “But that doesn’t mean it’s not gonna happen. We have a plan B and I’ve been talking with MGM about it. Hopefully we’ll still get our chance.”

You’d better >_< I’m still waiting for Sam/Jack resolution >_>

Robert C. Cooper leaves Stargate

Posted in Stargate with tags , on June 22, 2010 by Geek Tv

From the blog of writer Joe Mallozzi:

A short and early blog entry today as I’m heading off to the first stop in Robert C. Cooper’s farewell victory tour. ”What’s that?” you say. You didn’t know hew was leaving? Well, yes. Sad but true. His appearance at this year’s Comic Con panel will mark his final Stargate-related contribution, so if you happen to be in the San Diego area in late July, make sure to say goodbye and thank him for fourteen years and countless hours of gate-tastic entertainment. But, please – no tears. If you start crying it’ll only be a matter of time before he starts crying as well (the ole softy) and that’ll just embarrass him.

New Stargate Convention

Posted in Stargate with tags , on May 7, 2010 by Geek Tv

Stargate fans living in the middle of the United States have a new reason to cheer:  a brand new convention in a decidedly unconventional location from previous years.

Creation Entertainment last week announced a brand-new stop in this year’s Official Stargate Convention tour.  Normally, each summer brings Creation and Stargate to the Windy City of Chicago for a Midwest convention (August).  But fans now have a brand new location to look forward to, as well.  And it’s right around the corner.

On June 12 and 13, Creation will hold its first Stargate convention at the Marriott City Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Scheduled guests thus far include Atlantis’s Joe Flanigan (“John Sheppard”) and Brian J. Smith (“Lt. Matthew Scott”) from Stargate Universe. More guest announcements are forthcoming.

The annual, official convention tour also includes Vancouver, British Columbia (April) and Burbank, Calif. (November).

Us Europeans may as well suck it and not get any conventions 😐

Old Classics #3: Stargate SG-1 8×18 Threads

Posted in Old Classics, Stargate with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 26, 2010 by Geek Tv

This is probably the most discussed SG-1 episode EVER! Its title, Threads, is almost literal since a lot of loose ends are tied up in it.. If you are a Sam/Jack shipper, like I am, then this episode was heaven for you.

So what’s it about?

Ba’al is missing, but finally the Jaffa are free after millennia of slavery under false Gods. Teal’c and Bra’tac are knighted Bloodkin by the new Free Jaffa Nation, the highest honour that can be bestowed on a Jaffa, at the Temple of Dakara. When the Jaffa bow to them in respect, Bra’tac makes them stand, for he declares that no Jaffa shall ever bow before another person, and furthermore, never again bow before a false god.

With the Replicators destroyed and the Goa’uld defeated, the SGC is a little more peaceful. Somewhere out there, Anubis remains, but they can ignore that for now. However, perhaps because it’s too peaceful, Jack refuses to accept that Daniel is dead, not wanting to be “tricked” as last time, when Daniel managed to Ascend and then come back to life much later. However, they all know that Daniel was on RepliCarter’s ship when it was destroyed,

which gives him zero chance of being alive.

And as we know from the previous episode, Daniel was indeed killed. However, the visions of Oma Desala which RepliCarter forged for Daniel may not have been as empty as they seemed – for Daniel finds himself in a strange ethereal diner, a cafe, full of people, where the waitress is Oma Desala herself. This place seems to be some kind of strange Ascended metaphor. Daniel seats himself and talks to Oma. She explains that she has once again given him the choice to Ascend and live, or die. If he Ascends, he must accept that he can never help his friends again (as that’s against the rules). If he leaves the diner, he dies. It is a difficult choice for Daniel. He knows that last time he couldn’t resist breaking the rules.

The diner is full of other Ascended Ancients, none of whom will talk to Daniel because that’s beneath them. One other man, however, a large, fat man, seems to be arguing with Oma. Daniel talks to this man, who talks back, calling himself Jim. The man seems some kind of rebel who doesn’t take too much notice of the pedantic rules of the others. Jim is reading a newspaper called The Ascended Times which details happenings in the mortal world. It describes that Anubis is tricking the new Free Jaffa Nation so that he can take back Dakara. If Anubis captures Dakara, the whole galaxy could be destroyed, as Anubis wishes to use the Dakara Superweapon to kill all life in the galaxy. Daniel knows that he must help his friends out before it’s too late, but can’t work out how he can do it. He screams at the others, but they do not even turn.

The Free Jaffa Nation attacks a decoy of Kull Warriors and weakens its hold on Dakara. Against warnings, they do not destroy the Dakara Superweapon. Now Anubis attacks Dakara and takes it back. It is now only a small matter of time before he destroys the entire galaxy.

In the meantime, Sam is ( thank GOD) questioning her decision to marry Pete, even going so far as to visit Jack unannounced to discuss it and is about to spill the beans about how she feels for him, only to find him there with Kerry Johnson (a CIA agent heading up the investigation into Goa’uld still at large after an incident with the Trust), with whom he is in a (secret) relationship with. Jack looks beaten on the verge of drunk, spilling beer everywhere and probably damning the moment he hooked up with Kerry. Awkwardness ensues but then Sam gets a call from the SGC. Her father, Jacob Carter,  informs her that Selmak is dying, and that he will have to die with him, apologising because he will miss her wedding. Until Jacob’s eventual death, she speaks with him and with Jack about her happiness at the closeness she and her father have enjoyed over the past several years. During one conversation with Jacob, he tells her that he wants her to be happy, that she can still have everything she wants, and not to let (the fraking) rules stand in her way, implying that she should leave Pete for Jack. Meanwhile Kerry, though she liked Jack and thought they were “good together,” breaks up with him after she sensed the feelings he still had for Samantha Carter. They parted on good terms; before leaving, she advised Jack that he was making a mistake by letting Air Force regulations prevent them from being happy together, (you go girl, best antagonist ever :P) advising him to retire, and inferring that even as a civilian he could still run the SGC, as a civilian (Dr Elizabeth Weir) had been appointed to run the SGC before. After Kerry leaves, Jack visits the infirmary to comfort Sam, they hug as Jacob is dying and Sam is stroking Jack’s hand. In the meantime the Shippers exploded and the explosion brought out thousands of penguins and soon after, Jacob dies; his last words are to Sam: “I love you.” After Jacob’s death, Sam ends her relationship with Pete.

Back in the Ascended Diner, Oma explains that she has gotten in trouble before for helping people like Daniel Ascend, and she has been punished. There are deep-seated rules in the Ascended universe that not even she would dare to break. There seems to be something sinister about Oma’s connection with Jim, whatever it is. At the last moment, Daniel works it out. Anubis is half-Ascended, and it was Oma that helped him Ascend. Anubis had tricked her into thinking he was not evil, and as a punishment for breaking the rules, the others didn’t totally de-Ascend Anubis, but gave him his current power, the ability to destroy the galaxy and vent his evil. And the final piece of the puzzle clicks in place – Jim is Anubis – Anubis’ chosen manifested form in his half-protrusion into the Ascended realm.

Back on Earth, the gate dials, and they can’t stop it. Anubis has dialed every gate in the galaxy and prepares to unleash the superweapon. O’Neill, Teal’c and Carter can do nothing but wait for their fate. O’Neill begins the SGC’s autodestruct sequence. It looks like it’s the end.

However, back in the Ascended realm, Daniel has persuaded Oma. She must take responsibility for the mistake she made which has caused Anubis to be able to unleash so much evil, and she will not allow him to commit this greatest evil now. She stands up to fight Anubis, and all of the other ancients turn in surprise. Anubis laughs, saying that she cannot possibly defeat him, both of them being equally matched. Oma knows this, but also knows that so long as she is fighting him then he’ll have to fight back, taking him out of the cosmos and locking him into an eternal ethereal battle with her. The two of them collide and disappear in a flurry of light, locked in eternal combat. Anubis is gone from the universe forever.

Then two miracles occur. The Dakara Superweapon shuts down, and the autodestruct at the SGC freezes itself and shuts off. The Stargate’s wormhole closes. It’s over.

Back in the briefing room, they can’t understand what’s happened. Anubis just disappeared. Teal’c and Bra’tac tell Sam and Jack that the Kull Warriors the Free Jaffa Nation were fighting suddenly became confused, as if their master were no longer there to tell them what to do. Anubis’ forces are destroyed, leaving the team wondering whether it was Daniel’s work and thinking that he might have ascended again.

At that moment, they hear Daniel’s voice coming from inside Jack’s office. Jack goes to investigate and finds Daniel naked (as before). Jack hands Daniel a flag (choosing the SGC flag over the American flag) to cover himself up, and Daniel enters the briefing room, alive and himself once more.

The final scene is of Sam and Jack, sitting very relaxed and close to each other, fishing at Jack’s cabin. She remarks on how they “should have done this years ago,” while Jack replies that they shouldn’t dwell on it. We don’t know if they refer to fishing or their relationship but fishing has become the equivalent of intimacy between Sam and Jack (like pie=danger in SPN) anyway. She remarks that there are no fish in the pond, and when Jack agrees she laughs. Daniel and Teal’c appear around the corner carrying lawn chairs and a cooler, having joined them on the trip, and the episode ends as Jack and Sam continue to cast out their fishing lines, smiling and happy.

That was awesome I want to know more!

  • It is thought that Sam and Jack began their relationship at the end of this episode; according to producer Joseph Malozzi: “Still, despite the lack of official confirmation, it was only natural that [she and O’Neill] should get together after the events of Threads and, in my mind, they have been together ever since.”
  • Several times, both Sam and Jacob refer to Jacob’s near-death in “The Tok’ra“, in SG-1’s second season, as being four years ago. Either only four years have passed between the second and eighth seasons, or this is an error, and should be six years. However, it is also possible that his prognosis was that his death would not be immediate, in which case the remarks would be correct.
  • In the paper that Daniel is reading part of a headline which reads: ‘Wraith on the way to Atlantis‘ can be seen, along with a screenshot of the Atlantis Deep Space Scanner display from the Stargate Atlantis episode “The Brotherhood“, showing the trio of hive ships that assaulted the city in the Atlantis episode “The Siege“.
  • The Restaurant Shown at the beginning of Threads is identical (and possibly even the same set) to “Der Waffle Haus” shown in the hit series Dead Like Me. Daniel Jackson is even shown to sit at the same table that the “reapers” favor in their show.
  • Other paper headlines include:
    • Jackson still undecided
    • Astral Diner to be given infinite status.
    • Yoga NOT the path to enlightenment.
    • Ethereal Awareness Seminar to be held in Talnak Quadrant.
    • Edge of Universe Discovered.
    • Anubis plans to retake Dakara
      • Exclusive information on his quest to destroy all life in the Milky Way galaxy
      • He’s back again and he’s badder than ever
    • Consciousness superhighway to go through
      • Cognitive work slated to begin [after] completion of precognitive testing
      • Gondolthian nebula
    • Secret plan revealed
      • Anubis’ dastardly plan to regain Ancient weapon of destruction
    • Memoirs Laundry
    • Family of Four Drowns in Transcendental Waterfall

Was there any important/funny quotes in the episode?

(At Ethereal Diner)
Daniel
: No Menus?
Oma
: We don’t need them here, just order what you like.
Daniel
: Okay I’ll have truth with side order of clarity, please.

Sam: [O’Neill’s arm is around her shoulders and she is leaning into him, for comfort] Thank you, sir.
Jack: For what?
Sam: For being here for me.
Jack: [pauses and looks at her] Always.
(And as always, Shippers explode)

Sam: This is great. I can’t believe we didn’t do this years ago.
Jack
: Yes, well, let’s not dwell.
Sam
: There are no fish in this pond, are there?
Jack
: Nope.

Daniel: Can you tell me why you stopped me from killing Anubis the last time I was Ascended?
Oma Desala
: Because if I didn’t stop you the others would have, and they wouldn’t have been as nice about it.
Daniel
: You mean they wouldn’t have erased my memory and left me naked on a planet?
Oma Desala
: That was your choice.
[Daniel looks at Oma incredulously]
Oma Desala
: Okay, maybe not the naked part.

Sam: Sir, I wanted to talk to you about…
Jack
: Carter.
Sam
: We haven’t heard from him in a week.
Jack
: Doesn’t mean anything.
Sam
: Sir, we know he was captured by replicators. Chances are, he was on board a replicator ship when it disintegrated.
Jack
: All we know for sure is that he’s missing.
Sam
: Sooner or later…
Jack
: Forget it! I’m not fallin’ for it this time.
Sam
: Falling for it?
Jack
: Yeah. How many times have you thought he was gone, and then he shows up… in one form or another? I’m sorry, but we’re not having a memorial service for someone who is not dead.
[to the air]
Jack
: You hear that? I’m not buyin’ it!
[turns back to Carter who is staring at him]
Jack
: What? He’s just waitin’ for us to say a bunch of nice things about him. Next thing ya know, he’ll come waltzin’ through that door, like, right now.
[they look at the door]
Jack
: Waltzing… now…

Oma Desala: Frank, I need a Noah’s boy in a blanket, two hen fruit wreaked on a shingle with a mystery in the alley, a warmy with a moldy lid, and two checkerboards, alright?
Frank: Got it.
Oma Desala
: Oh yeah, hold the pig.

Jack: So… what brings you to this neck of the woods,
on such a fine day, in my backyard?
Sam
: Well actually, I’ve been sitting in your driveway for the last ten minutes, trying to work up the nerve to come and talk to you. The truth is, I’ve been trying to work
up the nerve for a lot longer than that.
Jack
: Oh?
Sam
: Pete put a downpayment down on a house. It’s a beautiful house. But… The truth is, I’m having second thoughts about the wedding.
Jack
: Why?
Sam
: See, the thing is, the closer it gets, the more I get the feeling that… I’m making a big, huge mistake.
Jack
: Look Carter, I don’t know what…
Sam
: I’m sorry to bother you with this but, see, there’s actually a good reason that I’m bothering you with this and if I don’t tell you now, I might never…
Kerry
: Jack, I looked everywhere, but I could not… Colonel Carter!
Jack : Miss Johnson… We were just meeting here, in my backyard on this fine day to discuss the state of affairs. [splashes beer everywhere]
Kerry
: Well this is awkward.
Sam
: Ya think?


Come on! Gimme a trailer! Or some scenes!

Stills?

Always a pleasure
