      I can't say I became wiser.
      The only one I'm sure about is Search and Rescue (even then, that might not be it) besides that. I got nothing. oh, and for B&B, you forgot beauty and the Beast. Don't know if that helps.

        Food talk, food pictures, some producer pictures. Relevant stuff for SG

        Well, it’s the calm before the storm. After an easygoing week of tossing story ideas around, we head back into the office to actually begin breaking season five. Ideally, I would love for each of us to head off with 2 scripts each Still, with most of November ahead of us, and a number of story ideas in development, there’s no reason why we can’t half the season in play by the time we head back in January.

          I don't think Joe's blogs will be too SGA filled until after the holidays. We should hopefully hear more about S5's direction, the DVD movies, and *drum rolls* Stargate Universe in Jan!

              Photos: Zero

              Videos: Bupkis.

              Write-Up: Good news!

              Bad news for embittered former fans celebrating a dip in the live ratings for Doppelganger. The show rebounded the following week and continues to deliver strongly in key demo’s.
              Briangate78, you got something to say about this?

              Also, um...batten down the hatches?

              On a totally unrelated front, I’m wondering if I can enlist everyone’s support in my drive to Have the Ice Cream Sandwich Discontinued. As some of you may know, I used to love ice cream sandwiches until the day I OD’d on them at a Christian summer camp (Long story. Do a search on this blog for “ice cream sandwich” to read the sad, sad tale). Ever since, I’ve been unable to stomach an ice cream sandwich and, for this reason, I’d like to have the production on the frozen treat stopped. I know, I know. Many you are wondering “But, Joe - if you don’t enjoy ice cream sandwiches, why don’t you just stop eating them? Why ruin it for people who DO enjoy them?” Well, the answer is simple. I’m incredibly egocentric and am irked by the possibility that there are people out there who are actually enjoying what I do not. For that simple reason, I would also like to campaign for the eradication of the following: halibut, sandals, kiwis (the fruit not the people), Olives (the people not the fruit), French New Wave cinema, and, of course, shrimp chips. So come on, people. Let’s all come together and make this world a far less inclusive place for all.
              And of course, after a lively debate about Not-Season 5, we get this little gem:

              Alas, before Alan could provide much more detail, Rob arrived and switched the subject to Stargate Universe, getting us up to speed on the revised pitch. My response was: “The janitor? Really?” But before we could pursue discussion, John Smith came in to talk about the directors’ schedule. Well, I just want to say that we are thrilled at the prospect of working with Ken Girotti again and, oh yeah, that young up-and-comer.
              What did Ken Girotti direct again?

              Finally, Joe discovers the wonders of the Internet:

              ...the highlight of my day was stumbling across the following site:

              http://www.thesuperheroquiz.com/villain/

              I‘m sure that it’s been around a while but, hey, it’s new to me. According to the Which Super Villain Are You quiz, my results put me in a tie (78% each) with both Lex Luthor and Venom although, for some mysterious reason, they gave the edge to Venom. I think it may be because I work out.
              Questions:

              Ascended Tauri writes: “Is the character Katie Brown slated for any more episodes this season?”

              Answer: Yep. We just watched her in the Day One Mix of Quarantine.

              LostCityGuardian writes: “When you describe how an idea for an episode is generated, it seems that it is more a collective process to create the plot than just one person writing the script from scratch. Which I think means that really all the credited writer for a particular episode has done is flesh out the basic idea you have all created. Would that be right?”

              Answer: More or less. In fact, every episode is different. Usually a writer will come up with an idea and toss it out to the room and we will all discuss, developing the idea into an actual story. Then, the writer who came up with the idea will go away and think about it (usually this is the case although the writer to come up with the idea may not always be the person to write it depending on schedule - ie. Harmony, written by Martin Gero, was an idea that Carl had for an episode). The next time we get together, the writer has hopefully come up with some more ideas for the story we have developed. He stands in front of the white board and throws out what he has come up with. The rest of the room says yay or nay, and then we begin the breaking process. We all participate in coming up with the act breaks, the individual scenes and, occasionally, bits of key dialogue. Then, once the story has been broken down into beats, the writer heads off to flesh it out into an outline. He puts out the outline and the writing department offers suggestions and criticisms. Then he heads off to write a first draft - and the process is repeated. Writing on Stargate is a team effort.

              Tim writes: “Will we be seeing anymore The Siege -like battles in the future?”

              Answer: For the greatest space battle we’ve ever done, check out BAMSR.

                Ethon recently I believe, and I think he did some early season SG1 eps. He also directs on 24 I think,

                    LOL, that I feel a lot better now. I would assume he is talking about Travelers right? I have this feeling "Tabula Rasa" will match or even do better than "Adrift" It got heavily promoted during that Halloween GH special.

                      Ooh, a revised Stargate Universe pitch. Veerry hinteresting...
                      Sounds like it's moving on.




                      Unless it's a completely revised idea, which means it's not.

                        Joe was saying in that interview thats still on the front page of GW, that Rob and Brad are mainly focusing on SGU as of now or it's their primary focus now. So hopefully we will hear something soon. Do you think Sci-fi will pick it up?

                          If they do, I certainly hope they find themselves a whole new team of writers just for SGU and leave our normal writers working on SGA only. Nothing against the current writers, but nobody should be subjected to those 40-episode/year stuff again. Everything/one suffers because of it.

                            I think the eps are better this year because the quantity of writing went from 40 to 20! So I totally agree with that.

                              Brad and Rob went to pitch SGU to SCI FI on Friday. Fingers crossed ... we hope to have something big to share next week!

                                OMG!! *crosses fingers Jonas style* I am hopeful SGU will be picked up by Sci-fi. This is the best time to pitch to the network, imo
