avatar Here we are with the second bonus show for this season, this week we are looking at the Sanctuary episode Bank Job which features quite  a few actors from Stargate beginning with Amanda Tapping and working our way down, it was also directed by Peter DeLuise so there is another strong connection. In this third season episode the Sanctuary team are hot on the trail of a significant abnormal that is due to hatch from it’s egg very soon, they egg is in a safety deposit box in a small town bank but since they have the correct credentials then it should be in and out but when the abnormal is missing and on the loose they decide to fake a robbery to allow them to search for this creature which has now taken residence in a human host.

BankJob (1)

It was great to see Gary Jones guest starring once more opposite Amanda Tapping, he played the bank teller George who it turned out was to have a more significant impact on the story then expected, we also got former Stargate actors Ryan Robbins, Peter Flemming, Eric Keenleyside, Tobias Slezak and Robin Mossley appearing in the episode so lots of fun trying to remember who they played on Stargate and which episode. We had the time of course because Bank Job has quite a few montages when do kind of slow the episode down and ultimately a single location limits the action of a show and you rely on the drama and character interaction to keep the viewers entertained. I have to say that they do a very good job casting the episode, the characters were interesting and worked well together with both positive and negatives consequences within the story.

Many thanks to Adam for joining us, this was his second guest hosting spot on Gatecast and he will be returning in 2015 for more Stargate, we are as always looking for people to join us for an episode, as you see given enough time we can normally find a date/time to work around very varied locations from the US across Europe and down to Australia. Feedback, ratings and reviews are most welcome, feel free to get in touch about any aspect of our show or maybe more importantly Stargate even if it’s just to say hello or offer some criticism:)

Next week we have a first time guest on that bonus show, we’ll be discussing Robert Picardo in an episode of Voyager and we will be joined by Michael Clark, hope you stick around and have a listen but until then happy holidays and take care.

Joseph Mallozzi on his Weblog covered the official announcement of the cast for the upcoming Syfy summer 2015 series which was revealed yesterday.

It’s looking pretty good, familiar faces from Stargate and the scifi/fantasy genre certainly won’t hurt.

December 18, 2014: Introducing the Dark Matter cast!

NBC Universal Syfy Press Release 

“Syfy today announced casting of the new acquired scripted series Dark Matter, which will feature Melissa O’Neil (Broadway production of Les Miserables), Marc Bendavid (Bitten), Anthony Lemke (White House Down), Alex Mallari Jr. (Robocop) and Jodelle Ferland (Twilight) with Roger Cross (The Strain) and Zoie Palmer (Lost Girl).”

It seems the flavour of the month is the one and only Morena Baccarin who is going to be making a splash in upcoming episodes of Gotham as well as appearing in the recent Red Tent mini-series. The Mentalist has returned for it’s seventh and final season and in the episode “Orange Blossom Ice Cream” she reprises her role as Erica Flynn who uses the mutual attraction between her and Patrick to sweeten a deal with US authorities who are intent on capturing an arms smuggler. It was a fun episode, Morena wearing her hair slightly longer looked stunning and even the back lots of the studios looked a passable part of respectable Beirut.

avatar Welcome to the first of the current batch of Gatecast seasonal bonus shows, this week Brad joins me to watch and comment on R.L. Stines The Haunting Hour season one episode Fear Never Knocks. The episodes stars Christopher Heyerdahl (Stargate SG1 & Atlantis), Matthew Walker (SG1 and Atlantis), Quinn Lord (SG1) and is directed by Peter DeLuise (SG1, Atlantis and Universe). While grandad is out the kids play with his mysterious recording device and unleash the worst terrors and then the original owner of the device comes to collect and well trust me this show would make sure any kid did not sleep soundly after watching it.

Fear (14)

Many thanks to Brad for joining me for this bonus episode, Alan was having fun at his Discworld convention so he missed out on this bit of fun, somehow though I think he wouldn’t want to changes places. Next week we have another bonus show and we’ll be looking at an episode of Sanctuary called Bank Job which as as you would expect lots of Stargate connections. We got a voicemail for last weeks show and we’ll save that for when we return with the “proper” Stargate specific shows in the new year but feel free to send us any comments you have, we’d love to have a bumper crop of feedback over the holidays.

Hell on Wheels like a few select shows is one I like to marathon to get the full narrative effect so with time off work I’m currently immersing myself in the fourth season and I was pleasantly surprised to see Colin Cunningham appear in the episode Chicken Hill playing the character simply known as the Gambler. There were definitely shades of his “Pope” character or maybe that character from Falling Skies has some roots in the slick wild west card shark with an edge.

Colin is a firm favourite within the Stargate community, his portrayal of Major Paul Davis in Stargate SG1, Atlantis and the Continuum movie was excellent.
