Warning, here be spoilers!
On Friday, August 18th, The Sci-Fi Channel aired the 200th episode of Stargate SG-1. The show itself was fantastic, and a must see for anyone who missed it. I won't give anything from the first 35 mins of the show away. Well, except to say the Martin Lloyd is back and making a feature length movie about SG-1, and that most of the episode very closely mimics real life events from the production of SG-1.
In the last scenes of the episode we find out that Martin's movie is cancelled, but the studio wants to continue making the TV series.
In 2003, MGM said SG-1 would end after Season 8, and they would lead into a movie from that. SG-1 obviously did not go away, and the movie was never made. This part of the episode again mics real life.
In the final scenes we have a flash-forward ten years into the future, at the end of the filming of a new Wormhole X-treme episode. Martin answers the phone and then shouts out "Good news everyone, the movie's back on!".
The only thing that can be understood from this, is that MGM has decided to finally go ahead with the production of a new Stargate SG-1 movie.
I cannot find any more information about it yet, but going be the rest of the episode it is hard to draw any other possible conclusions. If you find out what's going on, please let me know!
Phil Gordon, WSOP final table, World Poker Tour champion and former host of Celebrity Poker Showdown came to Google on Friday.
We had our annual company picnic at the Shoreline Amphitheater, it was pretty decent. One of the highlights was a 150 person no-limit Texas hold 'em tournament. I don't know how they pulled it off, but they managed get Phil Gordon to come and host it.
This was especially remarkable as Phil had been playing in the WSOP tournament until 4am the that morning. The winner of the tournament walked away with a chip set signed by Phil. It was certainly a great day.
