Stargate Atlantis Premiere!
To begin, a friendly plug-induced reminder:?* The first episode of the fourth season of Stargate: Atlantis airs this Friday night, September 28th.?* Not that series pick ups are solely dependant on good ratings, but they definitely do help.?* Find a friend with a Nielson box, invade their territory, and turn on the damn show, okay??* The stakes are high, everyone's in peril, major jeopardy, etc etc.?* You'll like it.?* Plus, I look all cool and doctor-like.
We've reached pretty much the end of the season now, shooting-wise, and I just wrapped a very grueling episode with Amanda "The Tappinator" Tapping and David Hewlett… and after spending two weeks in the set we now fondly refer to as Satan's Hell-hole, we are the best of friends.?* This happens with actors when they're exhausted and have their inhibitions taken away from them while balancing precariously in harnesses; somehow it's a major bonding moment, and despite the strenuousness we all faced, we had a lot of laughs.?* And subsequently ruined a lot of film.?* On the last day of shooting I got a surprise phone call from Nathan, who was in town, and had dinner with him on Saturday night, which was really nice.?* It's kinda funny seeing people go bug-eyed when they see the Captain and Kaylee downing chardonnay and eating fried shrimp.?*
What else is new??* Apparently a pregnancy, from the amount of questions I got about us "expecting".?* After some investigating, I realized the rumors began after Joe Mallozzi mentioned having to deal with a few pregnancies on this season of Atlantis on his blog, and then included a rather unflattering picture of me with my stunt harness on, bent over at an odd angle while trying to balance on a beam.?* Charming.?* Well, folks, I hate to disappoint, but that was just a roll of fat spilling over a very tight belt-like contraption that pinches you in all the wrong places while ultimately saving your life.?*
