Stargate has officially arrived at New York Comic Con, for the first time ever. In celebration of the fandom’s new digital platform and upcoming original series, Stargate Origins, the Stargate Command Lounge opened to fans at the convention. Geeks of Doom had an exclusive experience in the lounge and photo op, as well as a 1:1 demo at Command.
This month, COMET TV, which streams free scifi movies and television shows, is hosting a marathon of Ray Harryhausen films, including The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, Jason and The Argonauts, and more.
The network will also be showing the 1986 classic Labyrinth, starring Jennifer Connelly and David Bowie, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Troll, Troll 2, and more, along with episodes of Stargate SG-1 and Mystery Science Theater 3000.
Check out the full programming guide for May 2017 here below.
Writer Jane Espenson has confirmed that John de Lancie has been cast in Torchwood: Miracle Day. John de Lancie has been a fan favorite for many years, having portrayed the mysterious Q in Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Frank Simmons in Stargate SG-1. It is unclear at this point what role de Lancie will be fulfilling.
Production for Torchwood: Miracle Day is still continuing, and has been described as being “mindblowing,” according to Captain Jack Harkness himself, John Barrowman.
Barrowman is reunited with co-star Eve Myles in Miracle Day, as they investigate a worldwide phenomenon that has caused human beings to stop dying. Joining the Torchwood team for the new adventure is Mekhi Phifer and Esther Drummond.
The Gold Box spotlight deal of the day over at Amazon today is the Stargate SG-1 Complete Season DVDs for $13.99 each (that’s 65% off the list price of $39.98). You can choose any/all of the 10 individual season DVDs for this price.
Note, this sale is only for today, Friday October 15, 2010, while supplies last.
This is a great deal if you need to complete your collection or perhaps want to jump onto the popular scifi series, Stargate SG-1, which stars Richard Dean Anderson, Christopher Judge, and Sanctuary‘s Amanda Tapping.
Also, I noticed that the price on the Stargate SG-1 – The Complete Series Collection has been drastically reduced to $93.99 (down 53% from the list price of $199.98). The lowest I’ve ever seen this box set drop to was $131.99, so this is truly a steal at this point — 10 season DVDs, along with tons (seriously tons) of bonus features, this works out to around $9.40 per season if you buy the entire package. That’s crazy!!!
