Oh yeeaaaaah, Carl Binder is gonna open up a can of PAIN!!

Ok, all the info I've collected that relates to this episode...


Brad then pytched out hys revysed notion for an ydea he’s been battyng around for a whyle now. A great premyse wyth an yntryguing mystery at yts core, a wonderful opportunyty for one of our characters, all wrapped up in a an ultymately touchyng theme.

Answer: […] A still-untitled story in the back half.[…]

I eventually made my way back up to the offices and where I chatted with Brad about episodes 18, 19, and 20. He and Rob have some fantastic notions for the stretch run that promise to cap off SGU’s first season with a bang! And plenty of surprises.

Today, we set aside an hour to talk stories – specifically, the back half of SGU’s first season. Okay, okay. I think that, this time, I’ve got it right. […] Carl steps into the #18 slot with the story we just discussed today. This one looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun and Carl is looking forward to it. […]

Good luck to the gang at Comic Con today. I'll be at home, continuing to slog my way through episode 18.

Carl is close on his, Episode #18. He was last sighted wading his way into Act V.

On a sidenote: call it male intuition, but the possibility of this episode directly following "Sabotage" (assuming JM's script remains a 2-parter), and it's called Pain...anyone thinks Wray's ordeal will be dealt with more in this episode?

It'd fit.

Speaking of our impressive cast, I want to make mention of yet another recurring player who has really stepped up over the course of this first season. Julia Benson (formerly Julia Anderson – She claims the name change was the result of her recent marriage but I suspect it has more to do with that whole fugitive from justice thing. But I digress.) plays the role of Second Lieutenant Vanessa James and, like much of our supporting cast, impressed early and continues to do so with performances that have won her the respect and confidence of the entire writing-producing team. I mention Julia because we were watching the director’s cut of Pain the other day, an episode in which she delivers one stunner of a scene. I’m also looking forward to her nice, meaty moments in an upcoming episode.

JM Update:


Joel Goldsmith did his usual spectacular job and I was particularly impressed with the moody and unsettling score for Pain. It really ratchets up the tension. And, speaking of tension, what happens to Volker…it’s enough to give me nightmares. Actor Patrick Gilmore’s performance was terrific – in a creepy, frisson-inducing way. Also – it’s the little things. While you’re watching Pain, make a point of noting Wray’s wardrobe.

Evil Volker - yay!

JM Update:



Evil Volker - yay!

I'm definitely curious to see how this is going to be pulled off. Of all the SGU characters, Dale Volker (especially because of his classical music speech in "Darkness") strikes me as one of the most un-evil of the whole group. Whatever will happen to him must be pretty heavy to make him turn like that but Patrick Gilmore apparently pulled it off well. Definitely looking forward to this episode. ;)

Meh, I kinda agree, but it's always nice to have an antagonist we can label as such with almost full clarity (Rush is waaaayyy too up and down on the evil scale when it comes to differing opinions). Anyway, Telford strikes me as a first season antagonist only, but will have a big role by the end of the season, before he goes the way of ol' Yeller.

I didn't either. I was dead-set against the series, actually. Air I-III got me excited, and then after that I grimaced my way through the rest, with the occasional glimpse of brilliance. So now I'm waiting to see which way the wind blows when I finally fall of the fence. I think SGU has huge potential, but they haven't tapped into it yet.

And now I wonder, how will episodes like Pain change my mind?

I'll put 20 bucks on the hallucinations being a precursor to their invasion. Add in the fact that they know the Stargate systems from Rush's mind... and it seems likely. Sabotage and Lost seem to have self-contained plots, and the Subversion-Incursion arc deals with different baddies entirely.

So yeah. Pain = blue alien attack, part 3. Watch this space!

For the curious, I've got a nice little current list on all the tidbits we've learnt on Pain, to go with the new summary we've seen:
The Initial Precis from JM's blog: "Brad then pitched out his revised notion for an idea he’s been batting around for a while now. A great premise with an intriguing mystery at its core, a wonderful opportunity for one of our characters, all wrapped up in an ultimately touching theme."

- "Gold star for Patrick Gilmore today. Great, creepy, unsettling work." — Carl Binder, episode's writer, Twitter

- "Today, Visual Effects Supervisor Mark Savela was in to show us temp shots for Pain, Incursion I, and Incursion II. Let’s just say that those of you yearning for space-faring action are in for a treat" — JM's blog

- "I was particularly impressed with the moody and unsettling score for Pain. It really ratchets up the tension. And, speaking of tension, what happens to Volker…it’s enough to give me nightmares. Actor Patrick Gilmore’s performance was terrific – in a creepy, frisson-inducing way. Also – it’s the little things. While you’re watching Pain, make a point of noting Wray’s wardrobe." — JM's Blog

- "Thornyrose writes: “And Pain sounds deliciosuly grusome.” Answer: "Oh a couple of scenes come to mind."" — JM's Blog

- "I mention Julia (Benson - Lt James's actress) because we were watching the director’s cut of Pain the other day, an episode in which she delivers one stunner of a scene" — JM's Blog

And there was also a mention in Brian J. Smith's Q and A at JM's blog that Scott's "at his worst" in Pain.

All of this put together looks to be an interesting outing (And with the Visual Effects guy there, mayhaps the aliens will be appearing again?). I'm rather excited.

While I enjoyed Life, it doesn't really matter much who wrote this episode since all writers have had both good and bad episodes. Look at Mallozzi & Mullie. They wrote the monstrosity known as Enemy at the Gate, but they also wrote the superb Window of Opportunity. Same goes for Carl Binder who wrote Before I Sleep, which is one of my favorite Atlantis episodes.

116 Pain 5/14/10
A few members of the Destiny crew begin experiencing disturbingly realistic hallucinations bringing their personal fears or desires to life. Some worry that the stress of life on board the ship has finally begun to trigger nervous breakdowns.

After isolating those affected Dr. Tamara Johansen believes the hallucinations are related to the last planet the away team visited. But just as she thinks she’s contained those at risk, she discovers the cause of the hallucinations is transferring to other members of the crew. When the hallucinations become life threatening, she and the crew must track down whatever is causing the episodes before someone dies as a result.

Talk of the last three forbidden

It's been brought to our attention that the last three episodes of SGU have aired on Ukranian TV, thus are out there in spoiler land and on torrents and you tube, etc.

KEEP THEM THERE.

The discussion of these episodes, the posting of spoilers - even tagged - the posting of caps, ALL is forbidden here until it airs on Scifi.

No exceptions.

You see anyone discussing it, please report them so we can delete the posts. You see anyone posting any torrent links, report them so we can moderate the poster and delete the posts. If we continually get someone trying to discuss the episodes in spite of this announcement, that person stands to lose his/her posting privileged until after the episodes air on Scifi. (Which means watching it early so you can get spoilers to hold over everyone won't gain you much, cause you won't be talking about it here)

Yes, they were legal airings. Yes they shouldn't have aired until after they did on Scifi. That's between the Ukranian station and MGM. The simple fact is, Darren doesn't want it here, so it won't be here. No debate, no arguing.

You want to be a helpful part of this forum, please refrain from talking about the episodes and report to us those that don't.

Thanks

It's not going to happen. Partially because we know you guys, you won't keep the spoilers to one thread only. :)

if you have seen the Ukranian episodes and KNOW what's going to happen...keep it to yourself.

this thread - and the other pre-airing ones - are for speculation and guessing, not for those that know what's going to happen to come in here and spoil it for everyone. And even if you put them behind spoiler tags, you CANNOT post them here.


Basically, if you watch the Ukranian episodes, you will keep what happened a 'secret' and off this forum. What we don't want is someone who's seen them coming in and ruining it for the 99.9% of the world that hasn't seen it.

Concrete knowledge obtained from the Ukranian spoilers are a forbidden topic.

Now if you haven't seen them and want to guess and chat, cool. have fun.

We are asking people to comply. If they don't, we'll take away their posting privileges until after the episodes air.

If you have seen them and are just dying to discuss it, we can't and won't even try to control what you do elsewhere. but HERE, definitive spoilers from those four episodes are a forbidden topic

I;ve been catching trailers on Space channel....another episode I can't wait to see

so Scott is chasing his kid down the hall? I wonder if everyone elses' [?] hallucinations will be the same sort of reality-based things? That should let loose a lot of backstory :)

Second sneak peek, which is more of a montage of scenes from the episode, mostly centered around Greer. Spoilers, of course, so peek at your own risk:

Wow, for an episode I originally was not near as excited about as many other ones it is looking cooler and cooler...I'm still going to keep expectations a little lower though, but I doubt I'll be disappointed in any major way!

The hard thing about any previews for Pain is knowing fact from hallucination, although the above looked more real!

Not to talk about it? That's strange. I would understand saying we can't talk about the actual contents of the episode, but not being able to talk about the fact that this even happened is a little odd. Especially since it's not like it was leaked, it just aired legally in another country. xD

Skydiver will be the ultimate judge, but I think you're correct. You cannot discuss the contents of any episodes based on knowledge gained from having seen them, transcripts read or anything obtained from the Ukrainian release (which while technically legal) is considered off limits in this forum. Skydiver has done a few huge posts and a thread.

As for discussing the release and how/why it happened and what it means, I suppose that is ok to discuss but a new thread would likely be appropriate and if you cross and line they'll freeze your account.

Anything around that stuff is off limits or thin ice at best, it is what it is.:o

Byakuya Truelight
May 12th, 2010, 01:39 PM
That makes more sense. And I can't discuss the episodes themselves since I myself refuse to watch them in any way that would make the creators frown. Cute babies by the way. :)

Spimman
May 12th, 2010, 01:43 PM
This thread allows all speculation and discussion of Pain, so you can discuss the episode. Since you haven't seen the leaked Ukrainian stuff than really no discussion is off limits to you. Conventionally leaked spoilers are still ok too...but they "may" be questioned...I read them and rarely find them so no big deal for me.

Also, thanks! :D:D They are the best!!

I would actually rather that hte whole ukranian situation not be discussed at all. The only reason, someone will doubtlessly use that as an excuse to either talk about details, or where the torrent is or post caps....all sorts of stuff they shouldn't be doing.

that's the main reason for it to be a non-topic, because it will cross the line and then we'll have to go all mod and it'll be a mess. :)

As to the episodes themselves, they are not to be talked about in that, if you saw the ukranian episodes, or saw a cap or read a transcript and you KNOW what happened, you can't talk about hte KNOW. Now if you've only seen the US released spoilers and promos, fine. have fun. SPECULATE as much as you want. You just can't ruin that speculation with confirmed knowledge.

And that, my friends, is a Teranian Brainsucker, genetically engineered and reinforced by Vitronium, a material from which everything in Teranian Empire is built, including Blue Alien ships (Blue aliens themselves are Teranian slaves and do their bidding). This efficient killer is introduced in one of the episodes you, Americaners, haven't seen yet. It's main purpose is to catch a Destiny crew member off-world, rape him/her, suck out his brains and put explosives in their place. As soon as a certain miss Chloe Armstrong steps on another planet, she is taken by it... the rest you can imagine... when she returns to the ship.... KABOOOM!!! The Brainsucker can't be killed by any weapon known to man or Asgard or Ancient or Tollan or Wraith or Hebridan or Goua'uld or Tok'ra or others... only Planetkiller Easterbunny from planet called Szha'shoom can destroy it by laying egg on its head...

My expectations for this are a little low.
Just coming from the last few eps which were all HUGE in my opinion.
From Series past, I find the best eps are followed by low budget ones to help equal out the budgets.
Also with the huge finale coming, which is at least a 2 parter with speculated battles and you know who coming to the Destiny...
I expect this ep to be more in line with Season 1 first half, I liked, but did not love....
