Writer: Brad Wright
Director: Peter DeLuise
...And title #2. Wow! Two in a row tonight! Possibly!
http://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/...obots-on-hoth/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.
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:

http://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/...aid-or-unsaid/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/...y-and-mailbag/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!
(Is this where the new cliffhanger is? Could be!)

Or was it more a XXXXX type of angst?”
Answer: All three.
The shots in questionYesterday, 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.

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.

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.

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

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.
