    Default "Light" (105) Pre-Airing Discussion/Speculation Thread

    Writer: Brad Wright
    Director: Peter DeLuise

    ---

    ...And title #2. Wow! Two in a row tonight! Possibly!

    And speaking of character moments - today, I read Brad’s finished version of Darkness and Light. This one has got me very excited as well, particularly for the remained climactic sequence.
    http://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/...obots-on-hoth/

    I'm gonna assume that it's 2 episodes (perhaps a 2-parter), since it's already been established that every episode in the 1st season will have 1-word titles.

    EDIT: Turns out, this is Part 2 of what used to be "Fire". So, all the significant updates for Fire are:

    Brad has laid claim to #4, a story that is right up his alley”
    http://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/...verse-day-one/

    Brad is working on Fire and, from what I hear, is very happy with the way it’s coming along. It’s a great story and, as I’ve already said, right up Brad’s alley. Looking forward to reading the first draft. This episode will see a certain fan favorite retake the director’s chair.
    http://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/...aid-or-unsaid/

    Reading "Fire"...BW sure can spin a yarn. Can't wait to start seeing cuts.
    http://twitter.com/martingero/status/1302613341

    Brad’s script, Fire, is also out and it is pure BW: action, humor, and enough angst to trigger an anxiety attack in even the most composed of viewers. The scene about halfway through with the characters when the thing happens (sorry, I can’t be anymore specific) is a real nailbiter!
    http://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/...y-and-mailbag/

    (Is this where the new cliffhanger is? Could be!)

    AMZ also writes: “I know a lot of Universe info is under wraps at the moment, but I was wondering, when you said Brad’s script Fire had “enough angst to trigger an anxiety attack…”, did you mean angst as in Serious Conflict Angst or more the Rebel Without A Cause/A Lot of Whingeing From Characters Angst? Or was it more a XXXXX type of angst?”

    Answer: All three.

    Yesterday, I was over on Stage 2, watching Peter DeLuise direct the shuttle sequences in Fire. Boy, that shuttle is a beauty. Someone referred to it as “a puddle jumper on steroids”. Anyway, enjoy some shots of Peter in action.
    The shots in question

    All from: http://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/...odest-mailbag/

    Later in the afternoon, we sat down to watch the director’s cut of Fire. Now I usually dread watching cuts after 4:00 p.m. as, late in the day, my mind tends to wander while my eyelids seem to put on about six pounds a piece, but this episode was absolutely riveting. GREAT - except for the fact that it’s about twenty minutes too long, and this isn’t even taking into consideration a bunch of scenes that Brad actually wrote but had to cut at the script stage for fear that the episode would run long - which it has anyway. And yet even though the running time is long, the episode is tight, moving along at a surprisingly brisk pace. So congrats to Director Peter DeLuise on his triumphant return to the Stargate franchise.
    Ytimyona writes: “Any chance Fire might turn into a 90 minute episode? If it’s a tight script, why not? I hate to see significant parts of the story disappear because of a time limit! If all 20 minutes end up being cut, any chance it’ll be put on the special features of the DVD (like with Morpheus in SG-1)?”

    Answer: We’re looking at all possibilities. Like I said, the episode is pretty damn tight and even feels like it’s missing a couple of scenes and sequences I would love to see.

    Juralas write: “In the episodes you direct, will you make a cameo appearance and/or name any minor characters after 21 Jump Street characters like you did in the previous Stargate series?”

    PDL: Yes. I did something on this episode of SGU that is more abstract than usual.

    Shirt ‘n Tie writes: “ [...] Second: I know it’s a bit premature, but will you be doing the Audio Commentary for your ep? Third: Is it true you hung onto the Anubuis’ Super Soldier Outfit? Thank you for all of your talents in the Stargate Franchise over the years, and continued success.. and B-I-G-G-E-R!!”

    PDL: [...] Re: commentary. It IS premature, but I guess so. I don’t have the Super Soldier Outfit, did I joke about that? Black is very slimming and I dig the cod piece…

    Blaine Nielsen writes: “Ooh, ooh?question for Mr. DeLuise:?after taking a break for the Stargate production, last one being Family Ties, how does it feel to be back??? And will we see you around more often?? More Commentary on episodes with Gary Jones???Thanks for dropping by”

    PDL: My episode of SGU was a blast. I hope there is more to come including the commentary… with Gary… that would be so cool.

    They can't watch tv on Destiny anymore.

    "Darkness and Light" sounds more like one title to me, based on this context. If it was two episodes, wouldn't Joe say "Brad's scripts"?

    And "this one"?

    Well, Kazoop, I understand what you're saying.

    I just posed a question on JM's blog about this so hopefully he can shed some...light...on this. However, JM has also said previously that it looks like every episode in Season 1 will have a 1-word title, so...yeah, I'm not sure.

    I guess we'll wait and see.

    "...I read Brad’s finished version of Darkness and Light."

    Surely if it were two episodes he's have said versions and not version?

    Could be. Or it's a 2-parter in 1 big script. Who knows.

    Brad Wright shifts gears after putting out both Darkness and Light, looking to hammer down the story for episode 13.

    Wasn't 'Light' already an SG-1 episode? Well it was probably "The Light" but my point remains.

    That they've used that title before? Which is 1)Not very original, 2) confusing and 3) Wasn't a particularly good title to begin with.

    1) It's a word from the English language, of course it's not.
    2) For who?
    3) You haven't seen the episode and have no way of knowing.

    That's a bit silly, don't you think?
    Look at how many titles are identical for numerous shows. Heck, there must be dozens of "Crossroads" and "Family Ties" in the sci-fi genre alone, let alone everything else. So, a one-word title...sure, chances are it's been used before. But, as Jenks said...it's a word in the English language. Just like Air, Fire, Water and so on...
    And I'm one of the people who don't particularly care about the title of an episode. That's why I love "24". Well, one of the reasons, anyway..."6AM-7AM". BANG! We have our title.

    Update:

    From there, we headed over to the Destiny set where Peter DeLuise was directing Bobby, Louis, and David in scenes for Darkness and Light.
