From crossovers to humor, Stargate co-creator and executive producer Brad Wright talked with Collider about each show (17 seasons and 2 movies) while standing in front of the Stargate on the Destiny set. Collider has given us an index into the video interview, so here’s what Wright addresses:

  • Is he used to doing interviews on flip cameras in the gate room
  • Talks about how the gate in SGU is unique and describes its power on the show
  • 2:15 – How challenging is it to come up with storylines for Stargate
  • 4:25 – Are there more characters from the original Stargate shows coming into SGU. He says in second half of season two there are characters from Stargate Atlantis including McKay and Woolsey
  • 6:10 – Talks about writing the Atlantis characters into the serious tone of SGU
  • 7:45 – How much does he read the online chatter
  • 9:00 – We talk about the move to Tuesday nights
  • 10:20 – How is season 2 different from season 1
  • 12:00 – He talks about how far ahead in story they are
  • 13:20 – Says they know where the series will end
  • 13:40 – He talks about the bridge set. Since the ship was built for season 1, the bridge for season 2, I ask if he knows what they want to build for season 3 and he says they do know. Says it could be next to the bridge set…
  • 14:50 – What percentage of the ship has been explored. He says far under 50%
  • 15:40 – How would he compare the first 10 and the second 10 episodes of season 2
  • 16:50 – Is there a location they want to film at that they haven’t been able to get to yet
  • 18:25 – Are there any Easter Eggs on the ship that fans should look out for

One thing stressed in this video interview – Universe has a new night on Syfy: Tuesdays! This coming Tuesday, September 28, at 9 PM ET, SGU’s Season Two premieres with “Intervention”. Check our SGU Page for other international premieres.

  1. I hope they do Extinction they need to do a season finale to Atlantis and finish pairing Shep/Todd instead of leaving us hanging. I like Shep/Todd together. If MGM is in need of money like they claim, they could prophet by putting it on DVD like Blue Ray DVDs. I also hope they put Joe Flanigan on another tv show as a regular. He is a good actor.
