Episode 98 – Unlocking the Stargate – Gary – Teryl – Torri
As a Geek if you could not have a TARDIS, then the next best thing was a Stargate! If you are a fan of the show, have Eugenia and Gerri got a treat for you! In this episode Eugenia and Gerri discuss the many incarnations of Stargate from the film to SG1 to Universe, which was great and which was not! 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 (well maybe Universe did) and allowed us all to think that it could be one of us. However, 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. Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank, Carissa, Rand and the crew of OZ Comic Con http://www.ozcomiccon.com for their interviews with Teryl and Torri and Darren and Jason from Gifts for the Geek, http://www.giftsforthegeek.com.au for the interview with Gary.
