In this episode Eugenia and Gerri cover about 70 years of Science Fiction from Doctor Who to Farscape to Stargate with the only actor (well as far as our research shows) that has participated in three of the longest running Sci Fi shows over three continents! Farscape an Aussie Sci Fi show deserves to be watched by so many more Sci Fi fans. With the use of Jim Henson’s puppetry, its strong characters, and how the puppets seemed like real characters with actors bringing them believably to life. Ben Browder talks about how he wanted to work with Jim Henson’s company, loved working on Farscape, his move to Stargate and Doctor Who! Wow Ben Browder could be every Sci Fi fans ultimate actor!

Eugenia and Gerri go back to one of their favourites, Stargate. They talk about all the baddies that battled with Stargate Command over the years of the shows. They discuss the ones that they liked even though they shouldn’t. They talk about one particular baddie that they both like very, Ba’al. This particular bad guy was not your typical Goa’uld System Lord. Yes, he did want to take over the Universe, he was ruthless and selfish and just plain bad, but, did it with just a sparkle in his eye. So, sit back have a listen and then enjoy the conversation they got to have with the best baddie from Stargate, none other than Ba’al, the gorgeous Cliff Simon when they caught up with him at The Hub Productions Convention in Adelaide www.thehubproductions.com .
Gerri and Eugenia interview Colin Cunningham at Adelaide Armageddon www.armageddonexpo.com just before the television series Falling Skies aired. Most of us know Colin as Major Davis from Stargate SG-1, but he now stars as John Pope in Falling Skies from Steven Spielberg Listen to what they think about the show, its story line and development of characters. Do you agree with Gerri’s theory about the aliens?
Gerri and Eugenia and their two good friends Marlene and Sarah went to an Armageddon Convention in Melbourne. This was Sarah’s first time at a convention and she attended because most of the guests were from Stargate Atlantis. So they decided to all get together and talk about the show. 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?
With both Stargates off the air Gerri and Eugenia were looking forward to Universe. Having seen the promos they wonder if it could be a version of Battle Stargate Universe. They so wished that it could stand-alone! What do they think of the new series? What do they think has influenced the creators of the show did they warm to the characters or like the storyline?

Who in their childhood did not want to be a movie or TV star when they grew-up? In this episode Eugenia and Gerri discuss some of the younger actors that we see on our big and small screens! They discuss the roles that they take on and how they help tell a story and make it more real! Some of the kids that are on our screens are not even able to watch the shows/movies that they are in because of the rating that is then put onto the show. Some of them have scared us silly and some of them have made us laugh and long to do what they are doing. So what else do they have for you? Lots! They have not one, not two but three interviews for you in this episode, Chandler Riggs who plays Carl in popular The Waking Dead and Jodelle Ferland who has been seen in many genre shows. The last interview is with Chandler’s father William Riggs who is not only his father but also his teacher. They hope that you enjoy this insight into the younger actors in our favourite shows.
