I think it's made up to needle Cameron. Then again, it could be the subplot for the 4th movie. :D

I am going to have to call BS on that info. If it's true, then why are they talking about wanting to ask him to do the 3rd movie if it happens?

Something that huge they wouldn't let slip in a promo picture released months before the movie. It's a tease meant to mislead us.

Wikipedia wrote:Radio drama is a form of audio storytelling broadcast on radio. With no visual component, radio drama depends on dialogue, music and sound effects to help the listener imagine the story.

Radio drama achieved widespread popularity within a decade of its initial development in the 1920s. By the 1940s, it was a leading international popular entertainment. With the advent of television in the 1950s, however, radio drama lost some of its popularity, and in some countries, has never regained large audiences. However, recordings of OTR (old-time radio) survive today in the audio archives of collectors and museums.

The single best-known episode of radio drama is probably the Orson Welles-directed adaptation of The War of the Worlds (1938), which some listeners believed to be real news broadcast about an invasion from Mars.

As of 2006, radio drama has a minimal presence in the United States. Much of American radio drama is restricted to rebroadcasts or podcasts of programs from previous decades. However, other nations still have thriving traditions of radio drama. The BBC produces and broadcasts hundreds of new radio dramas per year on Radio 4, BBC 7 and Radio 3, - On Radio 4 as afternoon plays, Friday evenings, woman's hour daily short dramas, Saturday plays, Sunday classic serials and on Radio 3 Sunday evening drama on 3 and the once-monthly experimental wire slot. BBC7 output tends to be comedy, sci-fi, 7th dimension - and predominantly archived programs. Podcasting has also offered a means to create new radio dramas in addition to the distribution of vintage programs.

The terms "audio drama" or "audio theatre" are sometimes used synonymously with "radio drama" with one notable distinction -- audio drama or audio theatre is not intended specifically for broadcast on radio. Audio drama --whether newly produced or OTR classics -- can be found on CDs, cassette tapes, podcasts, webcasts and conventional broadcast radio.


A great link to find any type of Podcast you want DramaPod

And for those Dr Who Fans

I have personally downloaded a couple of sci fi podcasts that are great...I will have to go and find the links as itunes automatically updates for me.

The general assumption on the SG:1 forums that I go to is that 30185 reffered to one of the first foothold situations (Episode titled 'Foothold' - duh)
In the end the entire events of the episode were covered up, the only people who knew it ever happened were those involved, and no one was ever told again.
But I prefer Jack being the babydaddy idea more.

Anyway, I LOVE SG:1, so much so that as soon as I'm done here I'm going to go watch Children of the gods again.

So Gatefans, what's your story? When did you first see our beloved SG:1, any geeky stargate stories?

Lol I'm trying to get my Mum into Stargate, but she doesn't like Teal'cs Goa'uld. :lol:

She saw the film, then borrowed my S1 box set. I actually watched 'Children of the Gods' with her. She really liked it apart from 'that' aspect.

She said to me, now don't talk all the way through and tell me things, so I kept quiet, but she kept on asking me stuff, in the end I was like, just watch it!!! I laughed when she said she really liked the character of Kawalski. I was thinking, yeah well don't get too attached to the character... :wink:
She hasn't watched any since, but I'm going over in 5 weeks (for AT3!) and will make sure she carries on watching.

:D

I got hooked after watching Atlantis on the Movie network here... so i had to watch as many episodes as i could find to catch up... i still think i'm not cought up entirely but I think I should ask LoganMatrix If I can borrow some his DVD's from his collection... seeing he lives across the street from me, lol.

geeky moments? ummm... hmmm... in class I tend to talk to LoganMatrix about one thing and easily lead it to stargate (at least 1 a day) causing people to think there is seriously something wrong with us cause no one knows what we are talking about. I don't know if that's geeky by being able to make stargate references almost everyday, lol.
Geek: slang term, noting individuals as "a peculiar or otherwise odd person, especially one who is perceived to be overly obsessed with one or more things including those of intellectuality, electronics, etc." Formerly, the term referred to a carnival performer often billed as a wild man whose act usually includes biting the head off a live chicken, bat, snake or bugs. The 1976 edition of the American Heritage Dictionary included only the definition regarding geek shows.

I can't remember when I saw the movie, but I saw it first, then heard it was coming out on tv. My friend at the time, who is now my brother-in-law went to the pains of recording it on video for me every week, then eventually dvd. :wink:

Eventually I bought the boxsets anyway and acquired the latest episodes myself, always buying the boxset later when I could afford them, like any good fan.

When I heard Atlantis was coming out, I was really happy as at the time I was reading loads about Atlantis anyway, and then I was hooked on that straight away too. TBH I prefer Atlantis in the sense that I'd pay to go to an Atlantis convention, but wouldn't for an SG1 event.

I'm so pleased to have met Torri Higginson, Paul McGillion, Kavan Smith, Dean Marshall, Andee Frizzell and of course Amanda Tapping. Also met Damian Kindler (had coffee with him) who as you all know was involved in Atlantis for a short while.

I'm glad they have the 'Atlantis only' events in the UK and I hope next years event will have some of the people were going to see in S5 at it.

Actor Don S. Davis dies at 65

New postby Telkesh » Mon Jun 30, 2008 3:06 pm

GateWorld wrote:With great sadness we must report that veteran actor Don S. Davis passed away on June 29, 2008. He was 65 years old.

Don co-starred on Stargate SG-1 for the show's first seven years, helping to launch the enduring science fiction franchise. Davis played Major General George Hammond, base commander and a father figure to many of the show's characters.
He is also well-known for his portrayal of Major Garland Briggs in Twin Peaks.
Off-screen, Don was beloved by the show's cast and crew. He departed the show in 2003 due to a medical condition that restricted his workload, but returned for several guest appearances on SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis in the following years. Don worked hard to improve his health, and continued to work both on screen and off until his death.

Full Story


When i first heard the news i was sure the guy who told me just had a very dark sense of humour.
I scoured the internet for more information until I found a post from Khatie, the community manager of Stargate: Worlds. It was true.

Don S. Davis died yesterday, the 29th of June, 2008 of an apparent heart attack.

It truly is a sad day for geeks in TV. Don was an incredibly talented actor, and will forever be remembered for his work as General Hammond of SG:1, as well as being an incredible artist and sculptor.

Rest in Peace, General.

I saw a reference to it in someone's signature but couldn't find anything in my searches but someone had updated the Wiki on him to include yesterdays date. I am very sad to hear it. I've spent lots of time going through his art pages. He was an extremely talented man who lived a very full life and made a difference in the world around him. He will be missed.
