Win One Of Three Complete Stargate Atlantis Box Sets

June 24, 2009

There’s a lot of good Sci-Fi on TV these days. But sometimes if you miss even a single episode, the entire show seems to make no sense whatsoever. Fortunately for anyone who ever missed an episode of Stargate Atlantis, we’re giving away three complete box sets on DVD this week, worth about $280 each.

Each box set has every episode from all five seasons of the successful TV series, so you’ll never have to worry about missing an episode.

To enter, all you need to do is tell us in 25 words or less in the comments section below: “What would you do if you discovered Atlantis?

The best three responses will win all 26 discs of Stargate goodness. Entries close at 5pm on Friday, with winners announced next Monday. You can grab the full terms and conditions below.

Good luck!


Stargate’s David Hewlett as Grand Marshal of Parade!

June 18, 2009

David Hewlett Appearance

in Point Roberts, WA

David Hewlett (Rodney McKay) will be appearing in Point Roberts, WA, on July 4th as Grand Marshal of their parade.

See for details on the parade. He will also be signing autographs and taking a picture with his fan club, the Vancouver Stargate Meetup, of which I am the proud organizer, afterwards. Point Roberts is a peninsula belonging to the US, which can only be accessed through Canada. David Hewlett owns a house there and lived there while filming Stargate Atlantis. From the States, you need a passport and have to get through two borders to get there. From Canada, you need a passport but only have to cross one border. The lines to get across will probably be pretty long that day – especially since I’m spreading the word far and wide. Please check our group out at


For those of you in the area this looks like lots of FUN FUN FUN!!!

New Recurring Cast Member on Stargate Universe!

June 15, 2009
According to Joseph Mallozzi in his highly popular blog,
actress Jennifer Spence has been cast as a new recurring cast member,
Dr. Lisa Park, on Stargate Universe. 
Hired initially for just the pilot, the actress apparently made such impression that her character is now being developed more fully….

Here it is in his own words:

Speaking of which – actress Jennifer Spence plays the role of Dr. Lisa Park in Stargate Universe, a character who has developed quite nicely since the pilot. Here’s a classic case of a supporting player who, over the course of several episodes, catches the attention of the writer/producers on the basis of an impressive initial performance. Based on that initial performance, the actor is given more to do – and hits it out of the park, which gives rise to more interest and meatier scenes. Jennifer‘s growing role on SG:U is just one example of the many such instances I‘m seeing develop as we make our way past the season one midway mark.
