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!

The world of B grade Sci Fi movies is the topic of discussion in this podcast. Eugenia and Gerri talk about memorable movies that don’t quite make the A list of movies or even the C and D lists! They talk about Plan 9 from Outer Space, Starship Troopers and Slipstream just to name a few. However there is one movie that they both rave about and that is Sand Sharks produced by and starring Corin Nemec from Stargate, Parker Lewis Can’t Lose and Supernatural fame. In a very chatty interview with Corin, Eugenia and Gerri find out a lot about his many interests and experiences being part of a growing television industry. Their thanks go to Gifts for the Geek www.giftsforthegeek.com.au and The Hub Productions www.thehubproductions.com for the opportunity to interview Corin.

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! Thanks to Carissa and Rand from The Hub Productions www.thehubproductions.com and Gift for the Geeks at Supanova Expo www.giftsforthegeek.com.au
Gerri and Eugenia attended a convention with the inimitable Stargate Atlantis actor David Hewlett, Dr “Meredith” Rodney McKay. David is a great showman, he kept the audience entertained, so we thought that you might like to hear him too. He talks about Stargate Atlantis, his love of Doctor Who and the movie he wrote, directed, and starred in “A Dog’s Breakfast”. So get listening!

You hear Peter talk about his time on SG-1 and how he set the bar for the other System Lords. Some of the villains Gerri and Eugenia discuss are of course Apophis, Scorpius from Farscape, The Master from Doctor Who, Darth Vader and a number of other baddies from Star Trek.

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.
