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.
Eugenia and Gerri discuss the many years of entertainment that Stargate has given them over the years, talking about Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis and of course the youngster of the crew, Stargate Universe. This favoured show still resonates today with Sci Fi fans with its strong story lines and believable plots (well to us that wish that we could go through the gate!) and its Doctor Who ability to have major cast changes and still be relevant. The characters grew over the years (some even growing their hair) and with the use of Egyptian mythology set the show in a place that gave us familiarity whilst taking us to new worlds. In this episode Eugenia and Gerri talk to not one but two of the shows actors that made an impact Christopher Judge and Corin Nemec, the one that grew his hair and the one that was swapped for Daniel!

Gerri and Eugenia interview Colin Cunningham at Adelaide Armageddon Expo http://www.armageddonexpo.com just before the television series Falling Skies aired. Colin talks about the change from the smart military character of Major Davis on Stargate SG-1 to scruffy con man John Pope on Falling Skies. Colin explains how acting in Stargate changed his life and his excitement about working on the new series. Listen to what Gerri and Eugenia think about the show, the story line and development of the characters. Do you agree with Gerri’s theory about the aliens?
