Run, don't walk to read Summer House. John & Rodney have a summer/forced time off house in Eureka. Hilarity ensues. Fargo is terrified of Rodney; John & Jack commiserate about the geniuses; S.A.R.A.H. reminds John of Atlantis. It's awesome. Sequels: Shore Leave & Sabbatical

Is good. If you like SG-1 you should so go and buy. Very good movie. Leaps and bounds better than the last one (or, you know, the last three or four season of SG-1).

The Trio Beneath The Temple

Complete, utter brilliance. You just have to read it.

Oh. Good. Grief. You have got to be kidding me. Gateworld recently posted the cast changes for season 5 of Stargate: Atlantis.

My ravings behind the cut )

For "Favorite Sci-Fi Show"—which considering they were up against Battlestar Galactica and Dr. Who is saying something :) Gateworld story w/link to cast video. *fangirl squee of glee*
shallanelprin: (green tv)
Nominated that I watch:
- Fave new drama: Moonlight
- Fave new comedy: Chuck
- Fave sci-fi show: Stargate Atlantis
- Fave TV drama: House

There's lots of other stuff you may or may not be interested in (I, for one, was very disappointed by the fave male TV star choices).
shallanelprin: (atlantis rising)
*happy dance* This is so great. And an exceptionally early renewal.

The Bibliochaise - a chair with it's own bookcase. Only for serious book nuts :)

You know The Onion? Now it not only has web and print news but fake news broadcasts.

Stargate News:
Third series to feature use of the ninth chevron. Huh. So now we get to know what the thing is used for. Series slated to debut in early 2008. Personally, I'd rather have more SG-1 but I'm still interested to see what they come up with.

This is what happens when you spend two days sick watching nothing but Atlantis. That is all.

Don't you just love being pointed to a new source of fantastic fan fiction? Thanks to a Stargate crossover fic rec conversation over at [ profile] mhalachaiswords's journal I found a fantastic source of Atlantis Weir/Shep aka 'Sparky' fic by Melyanna. And she's just brilliant at it. Finding a new author to read always makes me happy. I'm now in a very Atlantis mood. Which has absolutely nothing to do with why I'm watching it while packing...ummmm...yeah.

Well, I've been digesting the news for a good 24 hours now. Stargate SG-1 has been canceled after 10 seasons and 215 episodes. The show is officially the longest running American science fiction show and is now in the Guinness Book of World Records. This show has been my favorite television show since it debuted and I'll miss it. And yet, I'm okay with this. I was fairly sure going into the season premiere that this would be the last season - after ten years it's time to say goodbye. Sci-fi Friday will just never be the same.

Stargate Atlantis has been renewed for a fourth season and I'm thrilled. After my extreme apprehension about a spin-off, I'm so happy this show is here and continues on after SG-1 is gone. I'm looking forward to seeing how it does on its own and hopefully it will have a long and happy run.

I know, I know - I've req'd this story before. But...I just found out the story has in fact been continued so I'm re-req'ing.

The Barista Series
This is, hands down, my favorite Stargate fic series. I have several authors that I love, but this story is so unique and humorous that it is my fave. Diet Coke Chic is a genius at portraying the goings on at the SGC from the eyes of an outsider - in this case a barista at Daniel's regular coffee shop. I know, it sounds like it could be incredibly Mary Sue-ish but it isn't. Kira Meyers (the barista) is a wonderful character and I find myself being a solid Kira/Daniel shipper despite the fact that nothing has, nor probably ever will, happen. If you haven't read this and you're a SG-1 fan - go, read!

And yay the story continues:
The Assistant
The continuing adventures of Kira and the SGC in Season 6 and hopefully beyond.

Oh yeah, the rest of her fic is great too :)
shallanelprin: (point of origin (troyswann))
Yes!!!! Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis have both been renewed by the SciFi Network. That brings SG-1 to a whopping ten seasons and over 200 episodes making it the longest running sci fi series in US television history beating out the X Files' nine seasons and 202 episodes. You can read the full story at Gateworld. I am sooooo happy! Another year to get to know the new characters and to keep enjoying stories in the Stargate universe.
shallanelprin: (reach for the stars (alinine))
