Stargate SG-1 – 10 Years of Stargate

https://youtu.be/D0cyzZCbL_g

00:00:09
That’s where all the action is gonna be out there. They don’t understand. We didn’t kind of save the planet. That’s brilliant Don’t go new guy work speed. You know me [sigh] fine That’s what I’m talking
00:00:51
I Co-created SG-1 at a time in my life one I was just trying to I mean I’ve done a lot of television
00:00:59
But I was trying to get my head around science fiction and how do you do a show of the size of the scope how? Do you keep it going and it strikes me that I? recognized that the legs the show had and when I say legs
00:01:10
I mean the future potential of a show like stargate simply because the device the gate the the icon the central icon of the series itself is a Storytelling device that is probably better than any storytelling device in science fiction [that] I can think of the enterprise is damn good
00:01:27
It’s a ship that is also a place that goes from Planet to Planet [wow], what a smart things you run where I came up with I didn’t come up with a stargate But I didn’t recognize what a great storytelling device it could be in television and 10 years later. I guess those instincts were right
00:01:47
Drop [Ball] A Stargate Sg1 is a
00:01:58
group of That it’s a team that consists of three [earthlings] and an Alien who? explore the galaxies through this wonderful piece of machinery called the stargate and we step through the event horizon and get to
00:02:13
Explore these fabulous other worlds Sometimes not so fabulous. [it’s] just a great adventure. It’s kind of like when we’re kids we all wondered what out there was like and we get to go through this gate every week and
00:02:26
Really try to kind of give [you] what if that were ever possible. What it might be like Bombers [though] there are no, I assume it was successful Well general you know what they say
00:02:38
At first you don’t succeed Try try try try try try again, I
00:02:47
Wasn’t interested in doing another series after guy ever necessarily unless it was just right so when mGM approached me and asked [me] to be to do my homework and look at the movie and see I saw a potential of it being a series there was no better television prompt existing and
00:03:05
What it allowed afforded the greatest opportunity to do anything? We wanted to tell any story you want to just go through that portal and create My guys name [is] Jack Colonel Jack O’neill
00:03:22
He’s a guy in the military Somewhat dedicated to the military, but not really he’s very irreverent. Have you met General Ryan? booker
00:03:35
D general Ryan Chief of staff? That’s running. I asked a four-star general in the real airforce, and I we had him on [in] his cameo And I said you know I want to be respectful of the whole concept of military and I’m try try to
00:03:50
play Along With The Parameters that seem to be loosely set for us as a television show But general Ryan is do you have Kernels like I?
00:04:02
Portray in the real Air Force. He stopped me mid-sentence. He said yes, and worse. You’re doing a great job son Keep it on the Road Thus far. We like the road
00:04:13
Thank you, sir. I like your your air Force here, I Love the Air Force that kind of gave [me] license and validation that the choices. I had made to bring a little
00:04:24
levity and humor And maybe a rymus to the character hopefully or a quiet denseness From which is born some of my sense of humor for the character. Where’s Captain kirk. Just arriving sir
00:04:38
Higher I’m assigning Sam carter to this mission. I prefer to put together my own team sir not on this mission Sorry if carter’s our expert on the stargate. Where is he transferring from? She is transferring from the pentagon
00:04:52
Amanda tapping plays Major Samantha Carter she is a Brilliant scientist, she’s an astrophysicist. [she’s] the one who’s always coming up with the plans to save the world
00:05:04
She’s the one who’s gonna fix the stargate if it breaks and she’s also very funny. I’m an [air] [force] officer Just like you are colonel and just because my reproductive organs are on the inside instead of the outside Doesn’t mean I can’t handle whatever you can handle
00:05:21
In a nutshell if Samantha carter is now a lieutenant colonel in the United States Air Force. She’s incredibly smart incredibly loyal Incredibly tough, but she has a heart of gold. It’s [kind] of every woman really. I think that she’s just a great character She’s she’s a character that wasn’t around on Sci-Fi
00:05:39
Ten years ago there weren’t female characters like this [ten] years ago. I now there’s a lot and it’s great captain Oh right excuse me Dr.. Jackson, I presume
00:05:53
I’m Dr.. Samantha Carter. We have Daniel Jackson. He is a linguist archaeologist Moral center of our show he’s the guy who kind of opposes the Hardcore [Hard-line] military point of view he describes himself as the damsel in distress. [I] don’t know what you want me to do I
00:06:11
Don’t understand He’s petulant annoying a thorn in the side of the military which these days if it did he’s stubborn and innocent naive So he’s kind of a whole
00:06:22
complex contradiction and Swordian And I spoke as always [heath], where are you from uh excuse me?
00:06:37
This is where we’re from there’s teal’c who is the Alien Christopher judge plays him? he was in the service of apophis one of the gold Villains in the pilot and Traded sides in Jaffa [ease]. He’s a shol’va that means
00:06:52
He’s a traitor and an outcast, but he’s our friend, and he’s the man of few words Come on I have nowhere to go
00:07:06
For this you can stay in my [place]. Let’s go. I’m not sure that the character was fully Formed when we started and so I was able to be involved with the genesis of teal’c which is very rare General Hammond
00:07:23
This is teal’c In helpless, you know what he is. Yes, sir I do He’s the man who saved our lives if you accept my recommendations
00:07:36
You’ll join us [G1] A Decision may not be up to you donna’s Davis plays general hammond who is sort of a father figure?
00:07:46
leader of the Base Runs the SGC That’s the main characters [thought] you made it as do you want where’s the fanfare general? We did kind of save the planet sir again? It should not get old general
00:07:59
job well done [one] of the beauties of this show is that It’s plausible science fiction We’re dealing with people of today dealing with situations
00:08:10
That are related today and only the weaponry that they’re fighting against is futuristic the creatures they fight against have all the personality traits and many of the weaknesses that leads to the downfall of Tragic Characters and
00:08:26
Human drama and Literature Any thing about this show to me is and the thing that such a totally apart from other Sci-Fi shows is that it uses human based
00:08:38
Mythology to build its stories from and shows how By true grit and strength of will you can dominate a so-called superior Force as long as you stick together and have faith
00:08:53
So we’re gonna get out [of] here It’s just Gonna take [longer] Yes
00:09:02
In the very beginning I was asked to do it, and it was a two-year order from Showtime and I thought I had two years perfect. Oh, just get the juices going again
00:09:13
It’ll be good. Well within a couple of months of the first season of delivering shows to showtime We get another [pickup] for another two seasons Which is I don’t want to say unprecedented because I don’t keep tabs of those things that I’d never
00:09:27
experienced that so to have four seasons guaranteed Before we finish the first year was fairly surprising, so once it had that momentum It was I don’t think there’s any stopping it now. We’re you know it’s it’s a worldwide entity
00:09:42
Hey guys What are you doing here? We brought pizza in the movie Star Wars He’s seen it but eight times nine nine times
00:09:51
If teal’c likes it it’s got to be okay You’ve never seen stoners, but you know mean Sci-Fi Ah humans interest
00:10:15
Greetings. [I] [am] [heimdall] [I] assumed you were said by the asgard High Council not exactly Colonel Jack O’Neill Major Carter Teal’c
00:10:30
Every year when we’re done that season. We kind of look around going. Oh, this is it. That’s it. We’re done We can no more you know no more stargate for us. There’s no way We’re going to come up with another 20 or 22 ideas
00:10:41
But you know you take a little time off and think about it look back at the season and a lot of times what happens is you just go back to the shows you’ve done and turns out you’ve opened all kinds of doors in that story and say well you can take this and and
00:10:54
You know expand that into a new episode or wouldn’t it be great if if the relationship took this twist? Between these two characters, and we really do still get very excited about making the show and the stories that were telling Yes
00:11:17
We’re home. We thought it might end at the end of season 5 season 6 season 7 season 8 and Finally at the end of last season we knew that there was going to be some people moving on So we decided to suggest that changes are going to happen, but it’s going to continue. What’s on your mind colonel?
00:11:40
Retirement actually you don’t mean [that] I? Think I do as much as they’ve made it as easy as possible for me to to do a year seven The idea [of] because you can’t generate more time. You know money’s not a factor. It’s always
00:11:56
It’s just about time and time that I need to that I won’t be able to get back if I don’t spend it now with my daughter That’s the primary determining factor the other is what you know. I’m old for crying out loud
00:12:08
I mean apparently they’ve given me this torch that’s ready to be passed, and I’m more than willing to pass it off So Mitchell I hear you haven’t picked out your team yet. I’m hoping I won’t have to so Why did general landers say something about it sir?
00:12:22
He did Are you going to tell me sir? He said you’re gonna be fine Mitchell Thank you, sir and ben browder. We have Jack o’neill from 10 years ago. [he’s] fresh. He knew the program
00:12:37
It’s something that he’s always wanted to do his Enthusiasm is genuine comes from Ben as much as it does the character go back to the Gator gar six go go go? Carol it shows a guy who has a switch in his head which
00:12:50
Shuts off and reason goes out the window and just reacts and that’s kind of a fun thing As an actor to [play] he doesn’t try to overthink situations Nor is he stupid
00:13:00
But at that point where it’s time to do something the switch goes to the left, and he does what he has to do More time and I think it’s a good texture for the show to have someone who likes to get muddy and basically I’m an eight-year-old boy, so I
00:13:16
Just grew up. Okay, but you know you get the great days. There’s some great thing about science [fiction] you have a day Where you get to be 8 year old boy which is? About now, and I can’t get in trouble for doing it. It’s really cool. You know
00:13:29
This is fun, right, I thought the transition that The Ben had to make an animal I guess wedging himself into an existing Family I guess
00:13:41
The way to put it was a tough [job] And I meant what [I] said when I told him I had a smooth job very well done The hardest part of the job [of] coming in on a news show is when you come in. There’s an existing culture and
00:13:56
If there’s one place where I think I absolutely agree with Richard is that the job should be fun? You should take care of the crew because the crew is taking care of you and all of the things which could have been difficult [for] me were already in place when I got here, so
00:14:13
Basically the hard work had already been done by him yeah, ice actually spoke with Richard before I came up to get the pricing people low down on what it was like on set and He what he related earlier about
00:14:24
Taking care of the crew and having a good time was exactly what I found when I got here and so It made my life easy and made the transition very easy for me, so it was [rargh]. Oh, thanks Anytime that was fantastic
00:14:36
You talked to carter yet? [uh]? Yeah, she can’t make it what? This is huge. We could be on the brink of another major discovery of ancient technology here. I’ll shushil venus and whatever we find
00:14:50
try playing [hard-to-get] Man look who’s talking and then of course we can’t forget? Claudia Claudia a black did an episode in season eight called prometheus unbound and just knocked it out of the park
00:15:03
I mean She she was just unbelievable we knew as soon as we saw that on-screen chemistry between her and [Mike] going what the character could Potentially bring in to the series was very exciting you know it just sucks, and [so] there was some concern
00:15:18
I guess on some levels that we might become you know fargate [Sg-1] but I think that they’re both such good actor That it was never really a concern for us And we think that the moment you see them in their SG-1 roles. They become those people not the farscape characters
00:15:36
Hey, you’re supposed to be going out on [missions] through the stargate, so let’s go let’s [rig] the Galaxy V buildings Look despite. What Daniel might think I really can help. I know how things work out there. I’m physically capable I’m good with weapons not to mention seductively attractive
00:15:52
What’s wonderful about valorous is this new injection of energy on I think the show and also amongst the team members? I think part of the reason one of the major reasons why the show has been [so] successful is the chemistry between those key principles for so many years and
00:16:09
Kind of nerve-wracking coming in on the back of that and I think if if they tried [to] fit me in or try to have me mold into Someone else’s shoes that had already been there on the show it wouldn’t have worked so we’ve been brothers character
00:16:22
You can’t just replace one character or actor with another and as much as I think people in the you know higher Echelon the business Like actors to think that they’re dispensable sometimes the work that they do With a character that they have created is you know it’s almost it’s indelible
00:16:38
It leaves its mark on a show and she was just a totally new breath of fresh air and it made the task Less daunting in that respect because I was able to play and find new territory and help his actors and characters exploring new territory You know it’s a really soft place to learn
00:16:55
the actors are [really] warm and It’s a great family atmosphere that these guys have all been working together for so long [so] [I] was able to really sort of test out some you know comedic lists and things take some risks because they’re so clear [on]
00:17:06
What they’re doing, and they’re so grounded in their characters that they’re doing [but] I was able to sort [of] mix it up a bit Well you boys not gonna let people from two different [heads] be you. Don’t silly game on your silly game isn’t over yet That’s my [wing] [man] anyway
00:17:30
What has been really thrilling for me is is to work with Beau bridges? he adds such a degree of class to the show, and he’s a wonderful man, and I think something of an inspiration for for the cast because he’s
00:17:45
Such professional it’s so good Dr.. Lam Says The Daniel [Valley] Ravine consciousness, well done see that’s what I’m talking about But it was evident pretty early on for me. Yeah
00:18:00
These guys have a great time doing what they do They have a sense of fun, so I understood that right away, but they’re also very professional they do get it done and they you know they’re serious about the work and they go for it Daniel even if you’re right the
00:18:14
Villagers are never gonna let you back in that [library] didn’t be me in [alright] you get one more [chance]. I’ll go with Jackson. I’m a quality time And that black night might show up again well
00:18:30
Though the [Russians] swing by and pick you up on the way through you have until then. Thank you, sir Thank God getting there. That’s one thing after nine years with what’s been so great after [the] first date Which is so great about these [caste] changes is it?
00:18:44
stirred the pot it introduces the Whole bunch of new chemicals into the mix so you don’t know what you’re gonna get it’s been very exciting this [year] to find those Dynamics and then
00:18:52
Ben Brown And I are still trying to still Doing a dance around each other to find out where it fits in and Bowie’s always asking questions about what he feels about the different
00:18:59
characters And [they’re] still finding it and we’re at the end of the season Katya and I we felt a very easy Nation and we’re finding out how the evolution of that relationship is going to take us so that kind of stuff keeps things fresh
00:19:09
It’s certainly if I look back on it If I really realized some day in a drunken stupor [that] I was doing the show for damn near a decade I’d probably have a heart attack, but at the same time. It’s been it’s been a very quick nine years
00:19:22
We’ve had we have a great crew. We have great cast we have a lot of fun here what’s been interesting about working in Canada for so long and working on this show is that it seems even in Canada to Didn’t eat mostly in Canada to have gone on under the radar
00:19:34
I was reading something in a newsletter from the actors Union the other day they just mentioned all there’s lots of Sci-Fi going on in Vancouver like 4400 in Stargate, Atlantis
00:19:43
And battlestar only one we’ve been here a decade man Like do you not know you know just [that] kind of stuff so in a way It’s like that kind of thing we want to put a feather in the cap of the show that sort [of] gone quietly about its
00:19:55
Business for this length of time and we’re very proud of it And we want to make sure that we do something historical that that that puts it on the map in that way that leaves a legacy that’s
00:20:04
Appropriate for the amount of fun, and enjoyment we’ve had of doing the show, so I’ve certainly am looking forward to the idea I think it’s a good concept of coming back for attempt here, [ennis]. I don’t think it’s too far away one
00:20:30
Here they come Make such a mess at the end of season 9 and because of contract renegotiations Everybody was kind of right tearing on the edge of I think they might be dead or they might be alive
00:20:50
We just don’t know they all look like they died And then of course everybody gets wiped out And we have these bad guys [circling] our galaxy for the first time so season 10 that starts off
00:20:58
Somebody’s written us into this terrible quarter and some other writer had to paint us out of it, so fortunately it was Rob cooper who’s have created the concept of the [Aura] in the first place that sort of dragged us out of that and Put us back on all the characters have to meet up again and go forward and now we have this
00:21:12
Incredible challenge of this worst foe we’ve ever had the face is now in our own galaxy and wreaking Havoc there So that’s our starting point. I’m glad to see you alive. It’s good to be alive old friend. We just got some bad news The old Ships have been located
00:21:27
moments ago they emerge from Hyperspace Over to look the season 10 definitely will have us engaging in more conflict with the Aura, but we [introduce] a new
00:21:40
Antagonist from a very unlikely source that will cause all sorts of problems Well that feels much better. Thank you. You do not me What you mean, can you hide your face? It’s alright. I will help you find out
00:22:05
[oh] boy All right, [Adria] is a pretty powerful nemesis Who happens to be the daughter of one of our lead characters and it’s fun what listening to the [dialogue] [Roberts] written about mother?
00:22:20
because of course this starts as a child and during the course of the first episode of flesh and blood grows very quickly into an older person and As a beautiful villain s [why] I think I’m so far are you actually going to stop growing at some point?
00:22:35
because Well this rate, you’re gonna have a very short life I was really surprised that the
00:22:43
Showrunners of [Sd1] were happy to rise in my own personal pregnancy into the show I thought that when I told them in news that I was pregnant in season [nine] that they would say well It’s been really nice knowing you and uh see you later, and their mind started taking over and they said well
00:23:00
You know when you do and I told them and I said well that works out really well [because] You love had your baby by the time Susan ten [start], so you know we’d love you to come and join us [full-time] then
00:23:09
So I was really pleasantly surprised and Varlas back in in full Force [I] think [it’s] been a really interesting season for her [season] ten because she really wants to fit in somewhere and I think she’s become quite good friends with Daniel and
00:23:25
She’s doing her best to behave But what makes her so fabulous is the effect that she’ll never entirely fit in great to play and I think hopefully entertaining to what? How do I look?
00:23:38
[Penny] would great Little more enthusiasm from you next time. Thank you. I’ve said this numerous [times] over the last [years] so it’s absolutely true it. I don’t mind even singing pitches right here. Which is up ammonia
00:23:52
Which is she’s not only reinvigorated by my passion for doing this show She’s actually reinvigorated my passion for acting curious That the day that we worked together was I thought was such a unique treat
00:24:03
and I thought it must have been you know the Absurd thing for me and have that reciprocated [than] then to have our working relationships our blossom into a full-time thing Is Sort of like it’s Kismet in a way?
00:24:14
So it’s a very appreciative and blessed to be working with this lady every day for sure What happened to you? What do you mean? Oh? I had a baby
00:24:25
The or I used me to sneak one of their own over the border This child is their way of cheating the ascended Rulebook? The thrust of season 10 [is] that the or I are very much [here]
00:24:37
And we’re [very] much getting our butts kicked and there aren’t very many victories So I think I think season tennis as the battles on we’re fighting [for] our lives with your eye and of course There’s the 200th episode. Which is a lot of fun. It is just wacky
00:24:51
this is kind of the Big 200 quickly Mohnish
00:25:12
Lead the tour of episode is kind of we did an episode 100 episodes ago or hundred episode that we basically poked fun of ourselves It’s kind of the Galaxy quest mentality of making a science fiction show where you come up?
00:25:26
It’s those things that whenever [in] everyone’s job. You sit there Go what I’d really like to say is this or what I really mean is this and so when you make a science fiction show Sometimes the absurdity comes across so obviously [-] you just want to say what you’re really thinking
00:25:42
We’ve referenced cross reference everything Old enemies the furlings this race that we’ve never ever seen that the fans keep asking about so we show them the furling Before we never get to meet you. We do everything and we do it very tongue-in-cheek
00:25:54
I’m picking up a strange energy anomaly colonel it appears the singularity is about to explode weapons [worth] maximum Damage cap solar flare [we’ve] got a shot. We’re gonna straight for us can you reverse the Polarity I’ll do my best
00:26:09
Engine room Warp speed take us out [of] here now I’m giving it all on God captain, but you’re expecting a bloody miracle The torrid episode was such a departure from any other episode that we did in starting
00:26:23
It was like doing a Saturday night live is what I lost it’s All these different vignettes and all these different things which really not [very] connected and if you missed why we’re doing them it just wouldn’t
00:26:34
Look like anything never underestimate your audience are generally sensitive intelligent people the crew is fun Positively good quality entertainment, but when you [actually] put them together And you follow that thread and when you see the show as a whole you sit there and go
00:26:47
Man those guys are clever. We’ve been trying here You’re not listening. I’m talking about a twist something nobody’s expecting to mean something like this Well, can you [ever] see that coming? No there’ll be spoilers. Are you kidding you’ll be in the commercial
00:27:33
We’re here celebrating the 200th 200th episode of Stargate SG-1 200 episodes [ten] seasons
00:27:44
No, waiting we’ve been around a while. I think what we’re celebrating is longevity and age old folks and the young people live watch them
00:27:59
Something magical. It’s like that sort of vision IsSaquah who knows what all of the Mitigating factors that have been involved to make this show last for ten years whether it comes from our executive producers and it filters all The way down which I think is very much the case
00:28:14
The fans have been so supportive of us since even before we aired And that’s been a [huge] help to us and the fact that we really do like each other and have a good time making [it] That’s kind of amazing that we’ve been doing [this] show for 10 years
00:28:27
The great thing about being a 10 year running show is that not just a successful genre show You’re not just successful sci-fi show you’re just a successful show and I think that is such a great Testament to the
00:28:45
World of people who love science fiction you know thank you Thank you, and hopefully you know for as long as wrong. We’ll continue to make the types of shows that the fans will watch Good Mark Sg-1 welcome aboard the odyssey
00:29:05
Let’s go off okay. Why have [I] been here for [10] years. I love this show. [I] love what they let me do I Love the fact that I have as much control as I do and for a series director control is fleeting thing So it’s nice to be I’ll do that, and I love the writing. I love the actors. I really love the paychecks
00:29:25
I love I love everything. I’m not Part of what it what happens every day for me is that that I keep asking myself am I still scared about? Doing and then every day. I come in going. I am still scared about you know
00:29:38
Not being able to do what I do In terms of not being able to make it interesting not being on tell the story the way I want to and [that] fear keeps me very interested in what I’m doing
00:29:54
Gone by so fast Ten Years has gone by so fast [I] think that I came into my [own] as a woman and we’ve all grown up together we’ve all gone through our tragedies and our triumphs together as
00:30:06
human beings and here we are Weather-worn Soldiers, but still enjoying it. It’s fantastic Christopher. Take one Aim our
00:30:17
Don’t get all shook up. You know being on the brink of being Canceled every year and then being brought back by you know the fan support [you] know the support of network and ultimately the support and belief of MGM it really teaches you to be
00:30:33
Thankful and to be blessed To be surrounded for 10 years by just the greatest people you could ever want to be around I mean people that general genuinely care about you and care about each other and care about the jobs
00:30:46
They do okay Osprey has [a] [rose] [punch] really [fast] Before I started this show ten years ago. I had black hair Does that tell you anything I?
00:31:02
Believe I have great relationships with all of the actors you know what can I say? I mean, they are genuinely happy to be here Where we all grumble don’t leave us generally we’re we’re pretty happy to be here There isn’t anyone. I wouldn’t have wanted to work with again and again
00:31:18
It’s I feel very fortunate that’s right 95 degrees. I’m [gay] Is why they never sweat? We’ve been doing it a long time and when you look back and realize that your children have grown up
00:31:32
And that you know you’ve gotten really old and your hair hair has gone away It’s a long time But you’re just doing [the] job and they call you and say
00:31:42
Could you do a little more and they say sure and I don’t think we’ll really be able to put it all in [perspective] And kind of look at it objectively for a while we’ll have to be done and moved on and you know years from now kind of look back at the [row] [of]
00:31:57
DVDs on the shelf and say wow [that] was a pretty big deal the first time in my life I feel like I’m a part of something something important [fast] wire
00:32:30
I’m glad to see you’re all having a good time. Yes, sir last night was the best time I’ve had since Ride on a wind look on your face when I said search it out A hundred times the man has told me to relax not that much
00:32:52
Yes Well, it’s good to see you relaxing, too sir stargate is now seen in Approximately a hundred and Twenty countries throughout the world
00:33:02
It’s quite a huge phenomenon, and I don’t think you’re on [the] lot in Vancouver. We forget sometimes I think how you [know] far-flung the popularity of the show is stargate is is Much more than just a television show the stargate franchise
00:33:17
Now include first of all a very successful spinoff series with stargate Atlantis which were just about to finish season three There’s all kinds of merchandise everything from its own official magazine
00:33:30
We have companion guides for both shows that come out at the end of every season We have of [course] the the DVD sales which are huge worldwide Calendars we have coffee mugs. We have t-shirts. We have hats we have all those usual things. We have a board game
00:33:44
That’s been designed with the stargate theme We have novels that are separate from the storylines of the show we have comic books We have posters of course we have conventions for stargate annually all over the world that the actors travel to and support
00:34:01
so it’s Quite something hey, you’re just in time okay when [Mrs.] for world The number of times I tried to get here only two of those times will my fault
00:34:19
The biggest Spin-off obviously is stargate, Atlantis when I think we are the first cable show to Have ever spawned another television Show and Stargate, Atlantis
00:34:29
Which is going to be going into his fourth season so I mean you can’t help but call that a success general o’neill [Atlanta’s] base offers greetings from the [Pegasus] Galaxy you [may] [cut] power to the gate I never thought it was a Sci-Fi found at all
00:34:48
I really enjoyed stargate, and I think a lot of that was not only the philosophical ideas that are explored But there’s a wonderful Irreverence and a humor to it that I thought that’s what I think miss is missed out in a lot of Sci-Fi and a sincerity
00:35:00
Of Sci-Fi is what makes me a little bit guarded And I decide Sg-1 was fantastic because there was that sincerity wasn’t there I think what they’ve done with Atlantis [now] is wonderful because it’s written with the same
00:35:11
Irreverence there’s lots of sort of you know darkness and cheekiness that goes on but [they’re] they are dealing with Big Sci-Fi ideas But it’s also very different show. They’re not trying to make [the] same show Which is great so it’s a wonderful compliment, but it’s not a copycat
00:35:27
Which it couldn’t [be] because stargate is so successful if we were trying to be that show would fail because they’ve already done it Beautifully that was different for me
00:35:37
Not so much. [I] know that there was a lot of Buzz [and] talk when we first started the show [stargate] this stargate that nothing can be as good as stargate and thankfully I was blessed with a deep level of ignorance
00:35:52
because I didn’t really know what that legacy was and I had not really watched the show and I knew what [I] wanted to do with the character And [I] didn’t even know what Rick had done with his character
00:36:04
so I wasn’t really thinking along those lines and after we we aired two really spectacular numbers and We continued to do really well in the ratings [I] don’t think anybody asked those questions [any] more about whether atlantis can sustain itself and live up to the legacy
00:36:22
But you just have to remember that stargate has run for 10 years very [few] shows have ever run for 10 years It’s the longest [running] science-fiction show in history So that’s a legacy that who knows where they live up to the [longevity] of that
00:36:37
Maybe we didn’t maybe we don’t I gotta tell you separate It’s a nice place. You got here. Thanks. We just painted Well good luck listen [ok] gives you a hard time. [just] shoot him
00:36:52
Also, he’s mortally allergic to citrus. [I] really keep one with me at all times Just a comfort to know It’s there that’s good intel thanks
00:37:06
That’s it. It’s a that’s a good one. We’re actually yet. We’re quite close. You’ve had your bags Yeah, oh, right [ten] years. I can’t even imagine. I just it doesn’t uh End the fact that in ten years it’s still fresh
00:37:20
It’s still enjoyed by millions of people [around] the world It’s still cutting-edge and its effects it still deals with some quite topical concepts And what’s so smart about stargate as I sort of as a universe both the Atlantis and Sg-1 is that it is character-driven?
00:37:35
[I] mean, it’s it’s not a soap opera, but it does have this fantastic Dysfunctional family I mean it’s almost like one of those 70s
00:37:43
family should have drama comedy kind of whether you just you just get so involved in these people lives and and as Well as the science fiction aspects you just want to know what’s gonna happen with these people even when they’re not fighting for their lives and
00:37:56
Just how much fun it is to watch normal average everyday people reacting to ridiculous
00:38:03
[science-fiction] situations. I think that’s the [the] fun of it And I think that’s where that that’s where the [ten] years are if it was just about battling aliens and spaceships and special effects and all that kind of stuff
00:38:13
It wouldn’t have that kind of appeal and people wouldn’t be going back and [watching] the old the old episodes and [enjoyments] in [the] middle of my back swing [sorry], sir. I didn’t realize that it really is something a decade. You know who ever goes into anything
00:38:32
[thinking] [it] I’m still gonna be doing this ten years later and still want to be doing it and still are happy to do it and still Are blessed to be doing and that’s the situation we find ourselves in now
00:38:43
And it’s gone by like a blink of an eye. You know this last 10 years has Been the greatest era of my life. You know and [I] hope that’s the same for everyone That’s been involved with this you know because it really is
00:38:55
Something special you know it’s I know I don’t have to get in my lifetime You know so it’s [just] kind of just sitting back enjoying the hard When I’m flattered I don’t think we have time please
00:39:26
sometime last week Sci-Fi called us and Good news bad news situation good news was [they’re]
00:39:35
renewing Stargate Atlantis [bad] news was they were not going to renew
00:39:42
Sg-1 [Beyond] the current tenth season You know in in the normal television [business] when a show gets cancelled you immediately wrap your sets and go home but we’re finishing shooting season ten see all of season [ten] will air and
00:40:00
We prefer to think of it more as you know It’s just not renewed for another year, and no one’s really considers ten seasons a failure of any kind so honestly we are not Seeing this as a as a negative. I know fans are going to take a while [to] sort of absorb that and adjust but I
00:40:19
honestly think that that it’ll give [us] an opportunity for Sg-1 stories to maybe get bigger and bigger and better in a long-form version Okay, goodbye. We found a little bit earlier than public did obviously the show had been canceled and
00:40:35
You know it’s it’s it’s hard to be really terribly upset You know and cancel the really weird word. It’s not we have been canceled that Kinda means I pull the plug and go home
00:40:45
This is this means we’re not getting renewed And it’s been one of those things that’s been on everybody’s mind for years and years, and it’s the fact that this reality is just It’s just something we have to deal with and I think
00:40:58
We’ve really had a wonderful run so it’s hard to be terribly sad upset about it. [you] know what? We’re just [about] done here So you guys are all gonna be [able] to go home and get [on] with your lives
00:41:09
The hard thing is is that after ten years? It’s kind of like a habit like I I get up every morning And I know exactly how to get to work practically asleep
00:41:16
And I know what my day is gonna be like so I’m not quite sure how I’m gonna Handle the transition to the real world You [thinking] what I’m [thinking]? I’m not surprised. I think personally that ten years is an extraordinary
00:41:30
Achievement I Don’t know how the writers with that apart from bringing in [new] characters. I don’t know how you can continue to tell new stories In the same environment with the same people hey marker
00:41:44
people’s lives don’t change unless you go through a massive sea change, so I think as a show it would have had to undergo on some kind of Major change
00:41:54
Eventually and maybe it was occurring with me and Ben and bo Arriving on the show and it always comes down to to economics And I understand I’ve been down that road before I was on [another] little show called
00:42:06
farscape and it you know [90] percent business and [ten] percent show I Need you to take me to your lab of course [o] is like. I’m gonna need a primer on these rebels first Is it permanent or primer primer pressure it could be a permanent. It’s not like directs this robot
00:42:29
The immediate thing is when a show is cancelled [is] the disappointment [the] [fact] that you’re not going to be seeing these people you’ve enjoyed being with for for all those years you’re not going to see them on a daily basis, and you have to go out and look for work and
00:42:44
But you know given the fact that SG-1 went for 10 years And you [know] is a [record-setting] in that regard? I
00:42:54
Think you have to walk away When you’ve been cancelled with great dignity and say we had a great run or all the people who did this had a great run? so with class dignity and grace
00:43:08
you take your belt all good things come to an end and This is one of them. Let’s read it again, and he said sit down [none] of you. You’re [not] you’re not gonna die let’s go You’re going on would you alright enough? All right? Shut up Bryceton people who want some you want some sister away?
00:43:35
Be aggressive like that good back onto the crowd wow I’ve directed about 60 episodes or so. I think it’s maybe even slightly more than that [I] kind of lost track
00:43:52
but I’ve learned so much about directing and visual effects and Diplomacy and writing and producing that I really do feel blessed. I feel like I’ve been paid to learn and Some of the people that have been on [this] show since the beginning even even more than me
00:44:11
[they] have this decade of memories And friendships that they’ve made I mean I pretty sure that all the people I hang out in the weekends are also the people I hang out [with] the the weekdays
00:44:26
which is strange because I I don’t really have a life outside stargate, so now that it’s Coming to a close. I don’t know what I’m gonna do with myself. I sound really depressing [I] Would like to say to the fans of the show that were it not for you
00:44:42
The show would [not] have gone for ten years and I know right now that You’re probably sad to hear [that] season ten will be at this stage the last season [you] [should] be really proud that you’ve
00:44:57
You’ve been part of it a major reason why while you’ve had this show for so long I really would like to thank [the] fans for in all sincerity for 10 years of a wonderful
00:45:10
Outrageous Rabid support and and with the announcement that I’m sure you all heard very recently that outpouring of love [and] support continues, and
00:45:22
It’s not taken for granted. It’s taken taken very seriously had taken to heart and We feed on it, and it strengthens us, and I truly truly truly would like to say thank you today We have achieved a great victory
00:45:37
It’s hard to pick an ending for this show. Yes. We’ve written several endings over the years and not one has seemed to satisfy Anybody and certainly not the fans because we’ve always come back. It’s never really ended I
00:45:49
Don’t know if I’d [like] to see an ending in a very petal because there’s a box you could put the suit in the ribbon You could tie over to just close everything up so I I don’t really see it ending pat I think that there’s a way to end it without making it fun
00:46:01
Having something work perfectly fine for 10 years then [also] doesn’t work anymore I don’t know. [I] don’t want to ever end stargate [I] think one of the things that fans liked about our show aside from the humor and the fact at work
00:46:13
We don’t take ourselves that seriously. I think what fans [liked] is the the notion that. Maybe it is going on like [that] maybe all this is happening, and it’s just a secret and That’s why it should never end
00:46:28
So don’t fret you may be forced to watch us for more years to come Hello, and yeah, hello. I’m richard dean Anderson. [I’m] Richard Dean Anderson This is Richard Dean Anderson were the [casts] and part of the crew of Stargate SG-1
00:46:56
We’d like to thank everyone who voted and those of you didn’t so Moving on it. It’s heavy [I]
00:47:06
Would like to thank space a wonderful wonderful chat So wonderful. I can’t stand it. You know bottom line is I hate to see the girl seem doing fun
00:47:17
Be comfortable here. Is there any inner voice that would like to say something to me? Oh? My inner voices they sound like I need different farts. I do wish you could smokin Jack o’neill You really think about that. It’s really got a filthy connotation thought Scott. I need another one
00:47:38
You know you’ve made your decision then guess you gotta go. We would like to thank you all like space Thank you, and good night that’s where all the action is gonna be
00:00:11
out there they don’t understand we didn’t kind of save the planet that’s brilliant don’t go new guy work
00:00:18
speed you know me sigh fine that’s what I’m talking i co-created sg-1 at a time in my life
00:00:54
one I was just trying to I mean I’ve done a lot of television but I was trying to get my head around science
00:01:00
fiction and how do you do a show of the size of the scope how do you keep it going and it strikes me that I
00:01:06
recognized that the legs the show had and when I say legs I mean the future potential of a show like Stargate simply
00:01:14
because the device the gate the the icon the central icon of the series itself is a storytelling device that is probably
00:01:22
better than any storytelling device in science fiction that I can think of the enterprise is damn good
00:01:27
it’s a ship that is also a place that goes from planet to planet Wow what a smart things you run where I came up
00:01:33
with I didn’t come up with a Stargate but I didn’t recognize what a great storytelling device it could be in
00:01:38
television and 10 years later I guess those instincts were right drop ball
00:01:54
a stargate sg1 is a group of that it’s a team that consists of three earthlings and an alien who explore the galaxies
00:02:06
through this wonderful piece of machinery called the Stargate and we step through the event horizon and get
00:02:12
to explore these fabulous other worlds sometimes not so fabulous it’s just a great adventure it’s kind of like when
00:02:20
we’re kids we all wondered what out there was like and we get to go through this gate every week and really try to
00:02:27
kind of give you what if that were ever possible what it might be like bombers though there are no I assume it was
00:02:33
successful well general you know what they say at first you don’t succeed try try try try try try again
00:02:46
I wasn’t interested in doing another series after guy ever necessarily unless it was just right so when MGM approached
00:02:54
me and asked me to be to do my homework and look at the movie and see I saw a potential of it being a series there was
00:03:01
no better television prompt existing and what it allowed afforded the greatest opportunity to do anything we wanted to
00:03:11
tell any story you want to just go through that portal and create my guys name is Jack Colonel Jack
00:03:21
O’Neill he’s a guy in the military somewhat dedicated to the military but not really
00:03:28
he’s very irreverent have you met general Ryan Booker D general Ryan chief of staff that’s running I asked a
00:03:40
four-star general in the real airforce and I we had him on in his cameo and I said you know I want to be respectful of
00:03:46
the whole concept of military and I’m try try to play along with the parameters that seem to be loosely set
00:03:54
for us as a television show but general Ryan is do you have kernels like I portray in the real air force he stopped
00:04:04
me mid-sentence he said yes and worse you’re doing a great job son keep it on the road thus far we like the road thank
00:04:13
you sir I like your your air force here I love the air force that kind of gave
00:04:20
me license and validation that the choices I had made to bring a little levity and humor and maybe a rymus to
00:04:28
the character hopefully or a quiet denseness from which is born some of my sense of humor for the character where’s
00:04:35
Captain Kirk just arriving sir higher I’m assigning Sam Carter to this mission I prefer to put together my own team sir
00:04:43
not on this mission sorry if Carter’s our expert on the Stargate where is he transferring from she is
00:04:50
transferring from the Pentagon Amanda tapping plays major Samantha Carter she is a brilliant scientist she’s an
00:05:00
astrophysicist she’s the one who’s always coming up with the plans to save the world she’s the one who’s gonna fix
00:05:06
the Stargate if it breaks and she’s also very funny I’m an Air Force officer just like you are colonel and just because my
00:05:12
reproductive organs are on the inside instead of the outside doesn’t mean I can’t handle whatever you can handle in
00:05:22
a nutshell if Samantha Carter is now a lieutenant colonel in the United States Air Force she’s incredibly smart
00:05:27
incredibly loyal incredibly tough but she has a heart of gold it’s kind of every woman really I think that she’s
00:05:34
just a great character she’s she’s a character that wasn’t around on sci-fi ten years ago there weren’t female
00:05:41
characters like this ten years ago I now there’s a lot and it’s great captain oh right excuse me dr. Jackson I presume
00:05:53
I’m dr. Samantha Carter we have Daniel Jackson he is a linguist archaeologist moral center of our show he’s the guy
00:06:01
who kind of opposes the hardcore hard-line military point of view he describes himself as the damsel in
00:06:08
distress I don’t know what you want me to do I don’t understand he’s petulant annoying a thorn in the side of the
00:06:16
military which these days if it did he’s stubborn and innocent naive so he’s kind of a whole complex contradiction and
00:06:25
swordian and I spoke as always Heath where are you from
00:06:31
uh excuse me this is where we’re from there’s Teal’c who is the alien Christopher judge plays him he was in
00:06:43
the service of Apophis one of the gold villains in the pilot and traded sides in Jaffa ease he’s a shol’va that means
00:06:52
he’s a traitor and an outcast but he’s our friend and he’s the man of few words come on
00:07:04
I have nowhere to go for this you can stay in my place let’s go I’m not sure that the character was fully formed when
00:07:14
we started and so I was able to be involved with the genesis of Teal’c which is very rare general Hammond this
00:07:23
is Teal’c in helpless you know what he is yes sir I do
00:07:30
he’s the man who saved our lives if you accept my recommendations you’ll join us g1
00:07:39
a decision may not be up to you donna’s Davis plays general Hammond who is sort of a father figure
00:07:46
leader of the base runs the SGC that’s the main characters thought you made it as do you want where’s the fanfare
00:07:53
general we did kind of save the planet sir again it should not get old general job
00:08:00
well done one of the beauties of this show is that it’s plausible science fiction we’re dealing with people of
00:08:07
today dealing with situations that are related today and only the weaponry that they’re fighting against is futuristic
00:08:16
the creatures they fight against have all the personality traits and many of the weaknesses that leads to the
00:08:23
downfall of tragic characters and human drama and literature any thing about this show to me is and the thing that
00:08:31
such a totally apart from other sci-fi shows is that it uses human based mythology to build its stories from and
00:08:40
shows how by true grit and strength of will you can dominate a so-called superior force as long as you stick
00:08:50
together and have faith so we’re gonna get out of here it’s just gonna take longer yes in the very
00:09:03
beginning I was asked to do it and it was a two-year order from Showtime and I thought I had two years perfect oh just
00:09:11
get the juices going again it’ll be good well within a couple of months of the first season of delivering shows to
00:09:18
Showtime we get another pickup for another two seasons which is I don’t want to say unprecedented because I
00:09:24
don’t keep tabs of those things that I’d never experienced that so to have four seasons guaranteed before we finish the
00:09:31
first year was fairly surprising so once it had that momentum it was I don’t think there’s any stopping it now we’re
00:09:39
you know it’s it’s a worldwide entity hey guys what are you doing here we brought pizza in the movie star wars
00:09:46
he’s seen it but eight times nine nine times if Teal’c likes it it’s got to be okay
00:09:55
you’ve never seen stoners but you know mean sci-fi ah humans interest
00:10:14
greetings I am Heimdall I assumed you were said by the Asgard High Council not exactly
00:10:25
Colonel Jack O’Neill major Carter Teal’c every year when we’re done that season we kind of look around going oh this is
00:10:34
it that’s it we’re done we can no more you know no more Stargate for us there’s no way
00:10:38
we’re going to come up with another 20 or 22 ideas but you know you take a little time off and think about it look
00:10:44
back at the season and a lot of times what happens is you just go back to the shows you’ve done and turns out you’ve
00:10:50
opened all kinds of doors in that story and say well you can take this and and you know expand that into a new episode
00:10:56
or wouldn’t it be great if if the relationship took this twist between these two characters and we really do
00:11:02
still get very excited about making the show and the stories that were telling yes
00:11:16
we’re home we thought it might end at the end of season 5 season 6 season 7 season 8 and finally at the end of last
00:11:25
season we knew that there was going to be some people moving on so we decided to suggest that changes are going to
00:11:33
happen but it’s going to continue what’s on your mind Colonel retirement actually you don’t mean that I think I
00:11:46
do as much as they’ve made it as easy as possible for me to to do a year seven the idea of because you can’t generate
00:11:53
more time you know money’s not a factor it’s always it’s just about time and time that I need to that I won’t be able
00:12:00
to get back if I don’t spend it now with my daughter that’s the primary determining factor the other is what you
00:12:07
know I’m old for crying out loud I mean apparently they’ve given me this torch that’s ready to be passed and I’m more
00:12:12
than willing to pass it off so Mitchell I hear you haven’t picked out your team yet I’m hoping I won’t have to so why
00:12:20
did general Landers say something about it sir he did are you going to tell me sir he said you’re gonna be fine
00:12:28
Mitchell thank you sir and Ben Browder we have Jack O’Neill from 10 years ago he’s fresh he knew the program it’s
00:12:38
something that he’s always wanted to do his enthusiasm is genuine comes from Ben as much as it does the character go back
00:12:44
to the Gator gar six go go go Carol it shows a guy who has a switch in his head which shuts off and reason goes
00:12:52
out the window and just reacts and that’s kind of a fun thing as an actor to play he doesn’t try to overthink
00:12:58
situations nor is he stupid but at that point where it’s time to do something the switch goes to the left and he does
00:13:06
what he has to do more time and I think it’s a good texture for the show to have someone who
00:13:12
likes to get muddy and basically I’m an eight-year-old boy so I just grew up okay but you know you get the great days
00:13:19
there’s some great thing about science fiction you have a day where you get to be 8 year old boy which is about now and
00:13:25
I can’t get in trouble for doing it it’s really cool you know this is fun right I thought the transition that the Ben
00:13:35
had to make an animal I guess wedging himself into an existing family I guess the way to put it was a
00:13:43
tough job and I meant what I said when I told him I had a smooth job very well done
00:13:48
the hardest part of the job of coming in on a news show is when you come in there’s an existing culture and if
00:13:57
there’s one place where I think I absolutely agree with Richard is that the job should be fun you should take
00:14:03
care of the crew because the crew is taking care of you and all of the things which could have been difficult for me
00:14:09
were already in place when I got here so basically the hard work had already been done by him yeah ice actually spoke with
00:14:17
Richard before I came up to get the pricing people low down on what it was like on set and he what he related
00:14:23
earlier about taking care of the crew and having a good time was exactly what I found when I got here and so it made
00:14:30
my life easy and made the transition very easy for me so it was rargh oh thanks anytime that was fantastic
00:14:36
you talked to Carter yet uh yeah she can’t make it what this is huge we could be on the brink of another major
00:14:43
discovery of ancient technology here I’ll shushil Venus and whatever we find try playing hard-to-get man look who’s
00:14:53
talking and then of course we can’t forget Claudia Claudia a black did an episode in season eight called
00:15:00
Prometheus Unbound and just knocked it out of the park I mean she she was just unbelievable we knew as soon as we saw
00:15:06
that on-screen chemistry between her and Mike going what the character could potentially bring in to the series was
00:15:14
very exciting you know it just sucks and so there was some concern I guess on some levels that we might become you
00:15:21
know Fargate sg-1 but I think that they’re both such good actor that it was never really a concern for us and we
00:15:30
think that the moment you see them in their sg-1 roles they become those people not the Farscape
00:15:36
characters hey you’re supposed to be going out on missions through the Stargate so let’s go let’s rig the
00:15:41
galaxy V buildings look despite what Daniel might think I really can help I know how things work out there I’m
00:15:48
physically capable I’m good with weapons not to mention seductively attractive what’s wonderful about valorous is this
00:15:54
new injection of energy on I think the show and also amongst the team members I think part of the reason one of the
00:16:02
major reasons why the show has been so successful is the chemistry between those key principles for so many years
00:16:08
and kind of nerve-wracking coming in on the back of that and I think if if they tried to fit me in or try to have me
00:16:16
mold into someone else’s shoes that had already been there on the show it wouldn’t have worked so we’ve been
00:16:21
brothers character you can’t just replace one character or actor with another and as much as I think people in
00:16:27
the you know higher echelon the business like actors to think that they’re dispensable sometimes the work that they
00:16:33
do with a character that they have created is you know it’s almost it’s indelible it leaves its mark on a show
00:16:39
and she was just a totally new breath of fresh air and it made the task less daunting in that respect because I was
00:16:46
able to play and find new territory and help his actors and characters exploring new territory
00:16:52
you know it’s a really soft place to learn the actors are really warm and it’s a great family atmosphere that
00:16:58
these guys have all been working together for so long so I was able to really sort of test out some you know
00:17:03
comedic lists and things take some risks because they’re so clear on what they’re doing and they’re so grounded in their
00:17:08
characters that they’re doing but I was able to sort of mix it up a bit well you boys not gonna let people from
00:17:14
two different heads be you don’t silly game on your silly game isn’t over yet that’s my wing man anyway what has been
00:17:31
really thrilling for me is is to work with Beau Bridges he adds such a degree of class to the
00:17:37
show and he’s a wonderful man and I think something of an inspiration for for the cast because he’s such
00:17:46
professional it’s so good dr. Lam says the Daniel Valley ravine consciousness well done see that’s what I’m talking
00:17:56
about but it was evident pretty early on for me yeah these guys have a great time doing what they do they have a sense of
00:18:05
fun so I understood that right away but they’re also very professional they do get it done and they you know they’re
00:18:11
serious about the work and they go for it Daniel even if you’re right the villagers are never gonna let you back
00:18:15
in that library didn’t be me in alright you get one more chance I’ll go with Jackson I’m a quality time and that
00:18:28
black night might show up again well though the Russians swing by and pick you up on the way through you have until
00:18:32
then thank you sir thank God getting there that’s one thing after nine years with what’s been so
00:18:39
great after the first date which is so great about these caste changes is it stirred the pot it introduces the whole
00:18:46
bunch of new chemicals into the mix so you don’t know what you’re gonna get it’s been very exciting this year to
00:18:51
find those dynamics and then Ben Brown and I are still trying to still doing a dance around each other to find out
00:18:56
where it fits in and Bowie’s always asking questions about what he feels about the different characters and
00:19:00
they’re still finding it and we’re at the end of the season Katya and I we felt a very easy nation and we’re
00:19:04
finding out how the evolution of that relationship is going to take us so that kind of stuff keeps things fresh it’s
00:19:09
certainly if I look back on it if I really realized some day in a drunken stupor that I was doing the show for
00:19:17
damn near a decade I’d probably have a heart attack but at the same time it’s been it’s been a very quick nine years
00:19:22
we’ve had we have a great crew we have great cast we have a lot of fun here what’s been interesting about working in
00:19:26
Canada for so long and working on this show is that it seems even in Canada to didn’t eat mostly in Canada to have gone
00:19:33
on under the radar I was reading something in a newsletter from the actors Union the other day they just
00:19:38
mentioned all there’s lots of sci-fi going on in Vancouver like 4400 in Stargate Atlantis and Battlestar only
00:19:44
one we’ve been here a decade man like do you not know you know just that kind of stuff so in a way it’s like that kind of
00:19:51
thing we want to put a feather in the cap of the show that sort of gone quietly about its business for this
00:19:55
length of time and we’re very proud of it and we want to make sure that we do something historical that that that puts
00:20:01
it on the map in that way that leaves a legacy that’s appropriate for the amount of fun and enjoyment we’ve had of doing
00:20:06
the show so I’ve certainly am looking forward to the idea I think it’s a good concept of coming back for attempt here
00:20:11
Ennis I don’t think it’s too far away one here they come
00:20:39
make such a mess at the end of season 9 and because of contract renegotiations everybody was kind of right tearing on
00:20:47
the edge of I think they might be dead or they might be alive we just don’t know they all look like they died and
00:20:51
then of course everybody gets wiped out and we have these bad guys circling our galaxy for the first time so season 10
00:20:57
that starts off somebody’s written us into this terrible quarter and some other writer had to paint us out of it
00:21:01
so fortunately it was Rob Cooper who’s have created the concept of the aura in the first place that sort of dragged us
00:21:06
out of that and put us back on all the characters have to meet up again and go forward and now we have this incredible
00:21:13
challenge of this worst foe we’ve ever had the face is now in our own galaxy and wreaking havoc there so that’s our
00:21:17
starting point I’m glad to see you alive it’s good to be alive old friend we just got some bad news the old ships have
00:21:25
been located moments ago they emerge from hyperspace over to look the season 10 definitely
00:21:33
will have us engaging in more conflict with the aura but we introduce a new antagonist from a very unlikely source
00:21:42
that will cause all sorts of problems well that feels much better thank you you do not me
00:21:56
what you mean can you hide your face it’s alright I will help you find out oh boy
00:22:07
all right Adria is a pretty powerful nemesis who happens to be the daughter of one of our lead characters and it’s
00:22:15
fun what listening to the dialogue Roberts written about mother because of course
00:22:21
this starts as a child and during the course of the first episode of flesh and blood grows very quickly into an older
00:22:27
person and as a beautiful villain s why I think I’m so far are you actually going to stop growing at some point
00:22:35
because well this rate you’re gonna have a very short life I was really surprised that the showrunners of sd1 were happy
00:22:45
to rise in my own personal pregnancy into the show I thought that when I told them in news that I was pregnant in
00:22:51
season nine that they would say well it’s been really nice knowing you and uh see you later and their mind started
00:22:58
taking over and they said well you know when you do and I told them and I said well that works out really well because
00:23:03
you love had your baby by the time Susan ten start so you know we’d love you to come and join us full-time then so I was
00:23:09
really pleasantly surprised and varlas back in in full force I think it’s been a really interesting season for her
00:23:17
Season ten because she really wants to fit in somewhere and I think she’s become quite good friends with Daniel
00:23:24
and she’s doing her best to behave but what makes her so fabulous is the effect that she’ll never entirely fit in great
00:23:31
to play and I think hopefully entertaining to what how do I look penny would great little more enthusiasm
00:23:41
from you next time thank you I’ve said this numerous times over the last years so it’s absolutely true it I don’t mind
00:23:49
even singing pitches right here which is up ammonia which is she’s not only reinvigorated by my passion for doing
00:23:56
this show she’s actually reinvigorated my passion for acting curious that the day that we worked together was I
00:24:01
thought was such a unique treat and I thought it must have been you know the absurd thing for me and have that
00:24:07
reciprocated than then to have our working relationships our blossom into a full-time thing is sort of like it’s
00:24:13
kismet in a way so it’s a very appreciative and blessed to be working with this lady every day for sure what
00:24:19
happened to you what do you mean oh I had a baby the or I used me to sneak one of their own over the border this child
00:24:31
is their way of cheating the Ascended rulebook the thrust of season 10 is that the or I are very much here and we’re
00:24:38
very much getting our butts kicked and there aren’t very many victories so I think I think season tennis as the
00:24:44
battles on we’re fighting for our lives with your eye and of course there’s the 200th episode which is a lot of fun it
00:24:49
is just wacky this is kind of the big 200 quickly mohnish lead the tour of episode
00:25:15
is kind of we did an episode 100 episodes ago or hundred episode that we basically poked fun of ourselves it’s
00:25:22
kind of the Galaxy Quest mentality of making a science fiction show where you come up it’s those things that whenever
00:25:28
in everyone’s job you sit there go what I’d really like to say is this or what I really mean is this and so when you make
00:25:33
a science fiction show sometimes the absurdity comes across so obviously – you just want to say what you’re really
00:25:39
thinking we’ve referenced cross reference everything old enemies the furlings this race that we’ve never ever
00:25:47
seen that the fans keep asking about so we show them the furling before we never get to meet you we do everything and we
00:25:53
do it very tongue-in-cheek I’m picking up a strange energy anomaly colonel it appears the singularity is about to
00:25:58
explode weapons worth maximum damage cap solar flare we’ve got a shot we’re gonna straight for us can you reverse the
00:26:05
polarity I’ll do my best engine room warp speed take us out of here now
00:26:15
I’m giving it all on God captain but you’re expecting a bloody miracle the torrid episode was such a departure from
00:26:21
any other episode that we did in starting it was like doing a Saturday Night Live is what I lost it’s all these
00:26:28
different vignettes and all these different things which really not very connected and if you missed why we’re
00:26:33
doing them it just wouldn’t look like anything never underestimate your audience are generally sensitive
00:26:38
intelligent people the crew is fun positively good quality entertainment but when you actually put them together
00:26:43
and you follow that thread and when you see the show as a whole you sit there and go man those guys are clever we’ve
00:26:49
been trying here you’re not listening I’m talking about a twist something nobody’s expecting to
00:26:57
mean something like this well can you ever see that coming no there’ll be spoilers are you kidding you’ll be in
00:27:13
the commercial we’re here celebrating the 200th 200th episode of Stargate sg-1 200 episodes
00:27:41
ten seasons no waiting we’ve been around a while I think what we’re celebrating is longevity and age old folks and the
00:27:55
young people live watch them something magical it’s like that sort of vision Issaquah who knows what all of the
00:28:04
mitigating factors that have been involved to make this show last for ten years whether it comes from our
00:28:09
executive producers and it filters all the way down which i think is very much the case the fans have been so
00:28:15
supportive of us since even before we aired and that’s been a huge help to us and the fact that we really do like each
00:28:21
other and have a good time making it that’s kind of amazing that we’ve been doing this show for 10 years the great
00:28:28
thing about being a 10 year running show is that not just a successful genre show you’re not just successful sci-fi show
00:28:37
you’re just a successful show and I think that is such a great testament to the world of people who love science
00:28:47
fiction you know thank you thank you and hopefully you know for as long as wrong we’ll continue to make the types of
00:28:55
shows that the fans will watch good mark sg-1 welcome aboard the Odyssey let’s go off okay why have I been here for 10
00:29:08
years I love this show I love what they let me do I love the fact that I have as much
00:29:15
control as I do and for a series director control is fleeting thing so it’s nice to be I’ll do that and I love
00:29:22
the writing I love the actors I really love the paychecks I love I love everything I’m not part of what it what
00:29:29
happens every day for me is that that I keep asking myself am I still scared about doing
00:29:33
and then every day I come in going I am still scared about you know not being able to do what I do in terms of not
00:29:42
being able to make it interesting not being on tell the story the way I want to and that fear keeps me very
00:29:46
interested in what I’m doing gone by so fast ten years has gone by so fast I think
00:29:58
that I came into my own as a woman and we’ve all grown up together we’ve all gone through our tragedies and our
00:30:04
triumphs together as human beings and here we are weather-worn soldiers but still enjoying it it’s fantastic
00:30:13
Christopher take one aim our don’t get all shook up you know being on the brink of being canceled every year and then
00:30:23
being brought back by you know the fan support you know the support of network and ultimately the support and belief of
00:30:30
MGM it really teaches you to be thankful and to be blessed to be surrounded for 10 years by just the greatest people you
00:30:40
could ever want to be around I mean people that general genuinely care about you and care about each other and care
00:30:46
about the jobs they do okay Osprey has a rose punch really fast before I started this show ten years ago
00:30:57
I had black hair does that tell you anything I believe I have great relationships with all of the actors you
00:31:04
know what can I say I mean they are genuinely happy to be here where we all grumble don’t leave us generally we’re
00:31:12
we’re pretty happy to be here there isn’t anyone I wouldn’t have wanted to work with again and again it’s I feel
00:31:20
very fortunate that’s right 95 degrees I’m gay is why they never sweat we’ve been doing
00:31:28
it a long time and when you look back and realize that your children have grown up and that you know you’ve gotten
00:31:34
really old and your hair hair has gone away it’s a long time but you’re just doing the job and they call you and say
00:31:42
could you do a little more and they say sure and I don’t think we’ll really be able to put it all in perspective and
00:31:48
kind of look at it objectively for a while we’ll have to be done and moved on and you know years from now kind of look
00:31:56
back at the row of DVDs on the shelf and say wow that was a pretty big deal the first time in my life I feel like
00:32:02
I’m a part of something something important fast wire
00:32:30
I’m glad to see you’re all having a good time yes sir last night was the best time I’ve had since ride on a wind look
00:32:36
on your face when I said search it out a hundred times the man has told me to relax
00:32:48
not that much yes well it’s good to see you relaxing too sir Stargate is now seen in
00:32:58
approximately a hundred and twenty countries throughout the world it’s quite a huge phenomenon and I don’t
00:33:05
think you’re on the lot in Vancouver we forget sometimes I think how you know far-flung
00:33:11
the popularity of the show is Stargate is is much more than just a television show the Stargate franchise now include
00:33:19
first of all a very successful spinoff series with Stargate Atlantis which were just about to finish season three
00:33:25
there’s all kinds of merchandise everything from its own official magazine we have companion guides for
00:33:32
both shows that come out at the end of every season we have of course the the DVD sales which are huge worldwide
00:33:38
calendars we have coffee mugs we have t-shirts we have hats we have all those usual things we have a board game that’s
00:33:45
been designed with the Stargate theme we have novels that are separate from the storylines of the show we have comic
00:33:53
books we have posters of course we have conventions for Stargate annually all over the world that the actors travel to
00:34:00
and support so it’s quite something hey you’re just in time okay when mrs. for world the number of times
00:34:09
I tried to get here only two of those times will my fault the biggest spin-off obviously is
00:34:21
Stargate Atlantis when I think we are the first cable show to have ever spawned another television show and
00:34:28
Stargate Atlantis which is going to be going into his fourth season so I mean you can’t help but call that a success
00:34:34
general O’Neill Atlanta’s base offers greetings from the pegasus galaxy you may cut power to the
00:34:42
gate I never thought it was a sci-fi found at all I really enjoyed Stargate and I
00:34:50
think a lot of that was not only the philosophical ideas that are explored but there’s a wonderful irreverence and
00:34:55
a humor to it that I thought that’s what I think miss is missed out in a lot of sci-fi and a sincerity of sci-fi is what
00:35:01
makes me a little bit guarded and I decide sg-1 was fantastic because there was that sincerity wasn’t there
00:35:07
I think what they’ve done with Atlantis now is wonderful because it’s written with the same irreverence there’s lots
00:35:13
of sort of you know darkness and cheekiness that goes on but they’re they are dealing with big sci-fi ideas but
00:35:20
it’s also very different show they’re not trying to make the same show which is great so it’s a wonderful compliment
00:35:25
but it’s not a copycat which it couldn’t be because Stargate is so successful if we were trying to be that show would
00:35:31
fail because they’ve already done it beautifully that was different for me not so much I know that there was
00:35:40
a lot of buzz and talk when we first started the show stargate this stargate that nothing can be as good as stargate
00:35:49
and thankfully i was blessed with a deep level of ignorance because i didn’t really know what that legacy was and i
00:35:56
had not really watched the show and i knew what i wanted to do with the character and i didn’t even know what
00:36:02
Rick had done with his character so I wasn’t really thinking along those lines and after we we aired two really
00:36:09
spectacular numbers and we continued to do really well in the ratings I don’t think anybody asked those questions any
00:36:17
more about whether Atlantis can sustain itself and live up to the legacy but you just have to remember that Stargate has
00:36:25
run for 10 years very few shows have ever run for 10 years it’s the longest running science-fiction show in history
00:36:32
so that’s a legacy that who knows where they live up to the longevity of that maybe we didn’t maybe we don’t I gotta
00:36:40
tell you separate it’s a nice place you got here thanks we just painted well good luck
00:36:48
listen ok gives you a hard time just shoot him also he’s mortally allergic to citrus I really keep one with me at all
00:36:57
times just a comfort to know it’s there that’s good Intel thanks that’s it it’s
00:37:06
a that’s a good one we’re actually yet we’re quite close you’ve had your bags yeah oh right ten
00:37:13
years I can’t even imagine I just it doesn’t uh end the fact that in ten years it’s still fresh it’s still
00:37:20
enjoyed by millions of people around the world it’s still cutting-edge and its effects it still deals with some quite
00:37:26
topical concepts and what’s so smart about Stargate as I sort of as a universe both the Atlantis and sg-1 is
00:37:33
that it is character-driven I mean it’s it’s not a soap opera but it does have this fantastic dysfunctional family I
00:37:41
mean it’s almost like one of those 70s family should have drama comedy kind of whether you just you just get so
00:37:47
involved in these people lives and and as well as the science fiction aspects you just want to know what’s gonna
00:37:52
happen with these people even when they’re not fighting for their lives and just how much fun it is to watch normal
00:37:58
average everyday people reacting to ridiculous science-fiction situations I think that’s the the fun of it and I
00:38:06
think that’s where that that’s where the ten years are if it was just about battling aliens and spaceships and
00:38:11
special effects and all that kind of stuff it wouldn’t have that kind of Appeal and people wouldn’t be going back
00:38:15
and watching the old the old episodes and enjoyments in the middle of my back swing sorry sir I didn’t realize that it
00:38:27
really is something a decade you know who ever goes into anything thinking it I’m still gonna be doing this ten years
00:38:35
later and still want to be doing it and still are happy to do it and still are blessed to be doing and that’s the
00:38:41
situation we find ourselves in now and it’s gone by like a blink of an eye you know this last 10 years has been the
00:38:49
greatest era of my life you know and I hope that’s the same for everyone that’s been involved with this you know because
00:38:54
it really is something special you know it’s I know I don’t have to get in my lifetime you know so it’s just kind of
00:39:02
just sitting back enjoying the hard when I’m flattered I don’t think we have time please
00:39:25
sometime last week sci-fi called us and good news bad news situation good news was they’re renewing Stargate Atlantis
00:39:38
bad news was they were not going to renew sg-1 beyond the current tenth season you know in in the normal
00:39:50
television business when a show gets cancelled you immediately wrap your sets and go home but we’re finishing shooting
00:39:57
season ten see all of season ten will air and we prefer to think of it more as you know it’s just not renewed for
00:40:03
another year and no one’s really considers ten seasons a failure of any kind so honestly we are not seeing this
00:40:12
as a as a negative I know fans are going to take a while to sort of absorb that and adjust but I
00:40:19
honestly think that that it’ll give us an opportunity for sg-1 stories to maybe get bigger and bigger and better in a
00:40:26
long-form version okay goodbye we found a little bit earlier than public did obviously the
00:40:33
show had been canceled and you know it’s it’s it’s hard to be really terribly upset you know and cancel the really
00:40:41
weird word it’s not we have been canceled that kinda means I pull the plug and go home this is this means
00:40:46
we’re not getting renewed and it’s been one of those things that’s been on everybody’s mind for years and years and
00:40:51
it’s the fact that this reality is just it’s just something we have to deal with and I think we’ve really had a wonderful
00:41:00
run so it’s hard to be terribly sad upset about it you know what we’re just about done here so you guys are all
00:41:07
gonna be able to go home and get on with your lives the hard thing is is that after ten years it’s kind of like a
00:41:11
habit like I I get up every morning and I know exactly how to get to work practically asleep and I know what my
00:41:18
day is gonna be like so I’m not quite sure how I’m gonna handle the transition to the real world you thinking what I’m
00:41:24
thinking I’m not surprised I think personally that ten years is an extraordinary
00:41:29
achievement I don’t know how the writers with that apart from bringing in new characters I don’t know how you can
00:41:36
continue to tell new stories in the same environment with the same people hey marker people’s lives don’t change
00:41:45
unless you go through a massive sea change so I think as a show it would have had to undergo on some kind of
00:41:52
major change eventually and maybe it was occurring with me and Ben and Bo arriving on the show and it always comes
00:42:00
down to to economics and I understand I’ve been down that road before I was on another little show called Farscape and
00:42:07
it you know 90 percent business and ten percent show I need you to take me to your lab of course o is like I’m gonna
00:42:17
need a primer on these rebels first is it permanent or primer primer pressure it could be a permanent it’s not like
00:42:27
directs this robot the immediate thing is when a show is cancelled
00:42:32
is the disappointment the fact that you’re not going to be seeing these people you’ve enjoyed being with for for

all those years you’re not going to see them on a daily basis and you have to go out and look for work and but you know
00:42:46
given the fact that sg-1 went for 10 years and you know is a record-setting in that regard I think you have to walk
00:42:55
away when you’ve been cancelled with great dignity and say we had a great run or all the people who did this had a
00:43:02
great run so with class dignity and grace you take your belt all good things come
00:43:10
to an end and this is one of them let’s read it again and he said sit down none of you you’re not you’re not gonna die
00:43:19
let’s go you’re going on would you alright enough all right shut up bryceton people who want some you want
00:43:28
some sister away be aggressive like that good back onto the crowd Wow
00:43:44
I’ve directed about 60 episodes or so I think it’s maybe even slightly more than that I kind of lost track but I’ve
00:43:53
learned so much about directing and visual effects and diplomacy and writing and producing that I really do feel
00:44:02
blessed I feel like I’ve been paid to learn and some of the people that have been on this show since the beginning
00:44:08
even even more than me they have this decade of memories and friendships that they’ve made I mean I pretty sure that
00:44:18
all the people I hang out in the weekends are also the people I hang out with the the weekdays which is strange
00:44:27
because I I don’t really have a life outside Stargate so now that it’s coming to a close I don’t know what I’m gonna
00:44:33
do with myself I sound really depressing I would like to say to the fans of the show that were it not for you the show
00:44:43
would not have gone for ten years and I know right now that you’re probably sad to hear that season ten will be at this
00:44:51
stage the last season you should be really proud that you’ve you’ve been part of it a major reason
00:44:59
why while you’ve had this show for so long I really would like to thank the fans for in all sincerity for 10 years
00:45:08
of a wonderful outrageous rabid support and and with the announcement that I’m sure you all heard very recently that
00:45:18
outpouring of love and support continues and it’s not taken for granted it’s taken taken very seriously had taken to
00:45:27
heart and we feed on it and it strengthens us and I truly truly truly would like to say thank you today we
00:45:35
have achieved a great victory it’s hard to pick an ending for this show yes we’ve written several endings over
00:45:42
the years and not one has seemed to satisfy anybody and certainly not the fans because we’ve always come back it’s
00:45:48
never really ended I don’t know if I’d like to see an ending in a very petal because there’s a box you could put the
00:45:53
suit in the ribbon you could tie over to just close everything up so I I don’t really see it ending Pat I think that
00:45:58
there’s a way to end it without making it fun having something work perfectly fine for 10 years then also doesn’t work
00:46:04
anymore I don’t know I don’t want to ever end Stargate I think one of the things that
00:46:10
fans liked about our show aside from the humor and the fact at work we don’t take ourselves that seriously I think what
00:46:15
fans liked is the the notion that maybe it is going on like that maybe all this is happening and it’s just a secret and
00:46:22
that’s why it should never end so don’t fret you may be forced to watch us for more years to come
00:46:43
