Stargate Universe Top Ten Favourite Episode Poll


Well we were not going to do a favourite episode poll for Stargate Universe due to the more serialised nature of the show and only having forty episodes to choose from but what the hell. The poll will be open for a couple of weeks and we’ll announce the results when we release the Universe wrap up show so select upto ten episodes and we’ll see what the results will be, maybe surprising, maybe not.

Poll Is Now Closed

Stargate Atlantis Wrap Up Show

This weeks episode of the Gatecast takes a look back at Stargate Atlantis and their five year adventure in the Pegasus galaxy. As we did in the SG1 retrospective (mainly to keep the discussion short) we compiled a few questions and then had a round table type chat, it was fun.

We did have some recording issues when we lost the primary track so the audio quality is far from perfect but listenable so we hope you enjoy our answers to the various questions, if you have alternatives then feel free to let us know. Our thanks to both Brad and Thomas for joining us for the show, rare we have guests from Australia and America on the same podcast but it worked out ok apart from said recording failure which wasn’t skype’s fault. Next week we are back to our Stargate Universe adventure with the episode Malice and are joined by Stephen so not long to go before we have covered all the live action Stargate made so far.

We also want to thank everyone that voted in the Stargate Atlantis Favourite Episode Poll, we ended up with eighty responses and of them there were thirty eight people who left contact information and we’re included in the prize draw. If you want to know if you have won then listen to the show, I’ll be contacting the main winner and runner ups in a day or so to make delivery arrangements.

Welcome to our latest poll, this one is for your favourite episodes from Stargate Atlantis. The poll will run for around a month and the results used in our Atlantis retrospective which will be released at the end of the year. If you want to be included in the prize draw (nothing fancy just some Stargate goodies) then leave a name, email or twitter name to help us out:)
You can have up to ten choices so a little easier than our SG1 poll which had the same number of votes but double the episodes:)

Yes indeed it’s that time again, we need your votes for your favourite episode from the fifth season of Stargate Atlantis.

So I warned you that we would be having a poll for the favourite episode of the entire series of Stargate SG1. I have allowed upto ten selections from the 200+ episodes but be advised I have included two part episodes (with the same name) as one selection thus hopefully not splitting their votes. There will be a prize draw at the end of the poll so as long as we know you have entered and can validate your online identity (Twitter, Facebook, Google+ or Email) then you’ll be entered.

After we left Stargate SG1 behind it seems like only yesterday we wrapped up the third season of Atlantis but five months just flew by so here we are:)

Once again we were joined by Brad for this Stargate Atlantis Season 4 Wrap Up Show but alas scheduling and real life got in the way and Alan had to be elsewhere so just this time it’s Brad and Mike talking Atlantis and yet the raw recording was still well over three hours:) Thanks to everyone that voted in the poll, not as many as last time which surprised me given the high regard this season is held in but enough to make the poll valid and with no real surprises. We also want to thank everyone that joined us for an episode this season, gold stars to Brad, Jeff, Thomas, Andrew, Andres, Phil and Ian, look out for some of them on the fifth season episodes.


Next week we are back to the usual format and kicking off the fifth season with the episode Search and Rescue, hope you can join us for that.

So which is your favourite episode from the first season of Stargate Atlantis?
The results will be used for the upcoming season wrap up show.

Just wondering if our listeners have a preference to how we handle the upcoming two parter on Stargate Atlantis The Storm and The Eye so here is a quick poll which will run for a week.

Oct 092012

There has been some discussion over the format of the next few years of the Gatecast in terms of merging the last three seasons of SG1 with the first three seasons of Atlantis. Now there is some crossover, not a huge amount but may be worth linking the two shows on a permanent or temporary basis. In general I prefer one approach and Alan another so why not have a poll where the people that actually listen can have their say:)

The poll will run for about a month.

  Welcome to the The Gatecast Stargate SG1 season 6 wrap up show in which Alan and Mike and special guest Colin (Trek News & Views host) talk about the sixth season, the good the bad and the cheesy. The results of our season 6 poll will be included as Stargate fans grade the episodes and lets not forget the Indeed count.

Huge thanks for all the feedback over this last season of The Gatecast, Facebook has been a excellent resource but perhaps Twitter has provided the biggest exposure boost even though it’s not ideal for anything other than immediate feedback. We included three promos in this weeks show and a big thanks to all those involved in Tuning Into Scifi Tv, The Scifi Diner and Trek News & View and of course everyone else who released promos for their podcasts and big thanks to those podcasts that have played ours:)

Next week we start on the seventh season of Stargate SG1 with Fallen and the return of a familiar character.

Our traditional poll for the favourite episode of the current season of SG1 we are discussing is now live, it will run until we record the sixth season wrap up show and the results used to fuel our banter. If anyone fancies spending a couple of hours with us on skype talking season 6 in a friendly and hopefully informative manner then get in touch, we are few weeks away from recording so plenty of time to schedule a date/time.

Ok folks it’s the time to vote for your favourite episode from the fourth season of SG1. At this point we’ve covered around half the season but I suspect most of you are not new to the show so you can vote in good faith.

We seem to be having issues integrating our previous Polldaddy app with WordPress so for now here is the link to the Poll itself. The poll will remain open for a couple of months and the results used in the recap show which will be along after the season 4 finale.
