Eugenia and Gerri discuss the many years of entertainment that Stargate has given us over the years talking about the SG1, Atlantis and of course the youngster of the crew Universe. This favoured show still resonates today with Sci Fi fans with its strong stories lines and believable plots and its Doctor Who ability to have major cast changes and still be relevant. Characters grew over the years and with the use of Egyptian mythology set the show in a place that gave us familiarity. In this episode Eugenia and Gerri talk to 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!

As a Geek if you could not have a TARDIS, then the next best thing was a Stargate! If you are a fan Eugenia and Gerri have a treat for you! In this episode they discuss the many incarnations of Stargate from the film to SG1 to Universe! 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 and allowed us all to think that it could be one of us. 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. Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank, Carissa, Rand and the crew of OZ Comic Con www.ozcomiccon.com for their interviews with Teryl and Torri and Darren and Jason from Gifts for the Geek, www.giftsforthegeek.com.au for the interview with Gary. Enjoy this very special episode.
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?
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?
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. They give their thanks to Gifts for the Geek www.giftsforthegeek.com.au and The Hub Productions www.thehubproductions.com and for the opportunity to interview David and Chuck.

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.
