Good News/Bad News

Well I am not the luckiest of people but over the recent weeks that has seemed obvious but good things do happen every so often.

Signed 2009 Vancouver Stargate Convention Poster

Signed by Michel Shanks

Back in January I turned 20 and in the last post I mentioned that I got a new phone, one thing that I didn’t mention is that I got a Hand Signed poster from the 2009 Stargate Convention held in Vancouver in Canada, and it is signed by none other than Michel Shanks (Daniel Jackson from Stargate SG-1)

I need to get a Frame for it so that it wont get damaged and so that it can hang on my wall with the picture I got for Christmas.

Stargate Atlantis: Homecoming

Stargate Atlantis: Homecoming

Over the last few weeks I have been reading the first book in the Stargate Atlantis Legacy Series from Fandemonium. As it suggests it is set after the events of Season 5 episode 20 ‘Enemy at the Gate’ of Stargate Atlantis. There was a film planned to continue the story of Stargate Atlantis called ‘Stargate: Extinction’ but due to the financial trouble that MGM have been in it has been shelved Indefinitely, Hear is a link to the story over at GateWorld. This is a Great way to continue the show and I am really looking forward to the next book in the Series ‘The Lost’.

Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome has started filming in Vancouver which is good news and I am interested in where this show is going to go as it is following a teenage Bill ‘Husker’ Adama (Luke Pasqualino) on-board the Galactica and his commanding officer Coker Fasjovik (Ben Cotton). As it is filmed like Sanctuary, mostly on Green Screen, it is set to look good as they are using scans of the old Galactica set and modified them so that the ship looks Brand New rather than falling apart.

In December I won a T-Shirt from @SyFy. As it was posted so close to Christmas and it was coming from New York I only got it at the beginning of the month. I have to say that it is worth the wait though as it is one of my new Favorite t-shirts. Its odd seeing as I have started to opt for Shirt and Ties more now.

In other news I have joined LoveFilm.com. I was thinking about joining for a while but I never had the time to do it but the other week they had people in the Pentagon in Chatham. They had a Deal going for 2 months for the price of one so I am paying £10 for 2 months worth of unlimited rentals which is pretty good I have to say.

Well I think that that is all for now, there will be more updates soon, I will make time to blog more often. So untill next time you can follow my antics on Twitter.

When Will They Learn?

As people know I am a Sci-Fi fan and due to this I have been taken in by some of the big franchises like Star Trek, Stargate and the Re-Imagined series of Battlestar Galactica.

I was taken with Battlestar as it was on after Stargate Atlantis on Sky One so naturally I started watching Caprica as it was a Prequel to the show. Only the 1st 9 episodes have been Broadcast in the UK and in the US they stopped at episode 13 but in Canada they only have 2 episodes left.

Now I have really enjoyed the 1st and now to be only season of Caprica, but I think that it could have gone further as it was only in its 1st year it was still finding its feet and they are trying to put too much into what is left of the season.

There is now another prequel to Battlestar called Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome. This is a Sanctuary style show as it is mainly on Green Screen. as far as I know it is set 10 years into the first CYLON war and is following Bill “Husker” Adama on the Battlestar known as Galactica. in comparison to the flagship show, the ship is brand new and at the beginning of it’s life.

This show was originally set to be a Web series such as how Sanctuary started but due to the cancellation of Caprica it has been given the green light for a TV show. This is starting to look like how Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe was handled, as though it was once axed so that the other can start and it just seames so unfair.

Like with Stargate Universe I will be giving Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome a watch as it is part of the Mythology of the show BSG and shows the start of the story of the ship that the show is named after like BSG shows the end of the story of the ship.

Caprica Season 1.5 is set to start in the new year on Sky1, the last 5 episodes are on in a 5 hour Marathon on SyFy on the 4th of January in the US and the last 2 episodes are on Space in Canada on Tuesday 23rd and Tuesday 30th November.

Stargate Universe is on Tuesdays up until the 7th of December in the UK on Sky1, in the US it is on Tuesdays up until the 30th November and in Canada it is on Space on Fridays up until the 3rd of December (these dates are estimates and are subject to change)
