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.
In this podcast Gerri and Eugenia have not one but two interviews from one of their favourite shows Stargate Atlantis. They are none other than David Nykl who played Dr Radek Zelenka and the ‘Chucknician’ himself Chuck Campbell. Stargate Atlantis has not lost its charm and continues to be watched my millions all over the world. Was its run cut too short, could it have lasted a few more seasons? Listen to Gerri and Eugenia give their opinions about the show and their thoughts about the characters Zelenka and Chuck the Technician. In David Nykl’s interview you will find out about the many things David has been involved in from directing to co-founding a theatre company in the Czech Republic. In Chuck’s interview find out how he got his name in the series. They give their thanks to Gifts for the Geek http://www.giftsforthegeek.com.au and The Hub Productions http://www.thehubproductions.com and for the opportunity to interview David and Chuck.
In this podcast Gerri and Eugenia are joined by their two good friends Marlene and Sarah. So what are they talking about? Well, they decided to get together to talk about Stargate Atlantis which is Sarah’s favourite show. So did they just talk about the show or did it turn into a discussion about one friend’s obsession with a character from this show! Who do you think this may be well to give you a hint his name begins with an M? So have a listen and see if you can tell which of us is the one with the obsession and find out how he (oops that is another clue) talks about how he got his role in Stargate Atlantis. Keep listening to our upcoming podcasts and you will be able to listen to him talk about his time on the show.
