First of all, an update on the S4 rumors. If you haven't heard, Aaron said yesterday that SciFi has considered airing the first ten episodes of S4 in Feb-April, then saving the last ten for 2009. That news quickly got spread all over the 'net; here's a transcript of their actual words. The guys began today's Q&A by saying that they'd heard that the rumor had already gotten out online. (I actually took video of this, but I accidentally deleted it. Grr!) Jamie said that they were NOT joking yesterday, but that absolutely nothing was set in stone. Withholding the second half of S4 is something that has been discussed, but SciFi has not yet made a decision. The actors were aware of this when they signed their contracts, and none of them are happy about it. If that's true, then I'm glad they let us know so that SciFi would hear the fan uproar. Then again, SciFi is not known for making wise business decisions.
Anyway. No spoilers today, much to my dismay! The panel was quite fun, though. Jamie fashion report: jeans, flip-flops, and a Dallas Cowboys t-shirt, of all things. Still scruffy, with longish hair. My camera doesn't take very good photos, but here are a few, including some gratuitous scruff for dionusia!
On the plus side, my mediocre little digital camera does take decent video! Holding the camera steady is damn near impossible, but the picture quality's better this time.
I was able to use elly427's Mac to compress the video in the first two files, but I didn't have time to do the rest; if any of you want to use iMovie to make the files a more manageable size, I'd really appreciate it! Just e-mail me the new file, and I'll upload it for sharing. Thanks!
Clip 1 -- Jamie and Mark Sheppard talk about the "difficulty" of being English on the set, with some mockery of Callis.
Clip 2 -- Jamie discusses the differences between working for SciFi and the BBC.
Clip 3 -- Here's one for Doctor Who fans. Turns out Mark's a HUGE fan of DW and would love to be on the show. (BTW, the blond guy is the show's science advisor. And unfortunately my camera ran out of recording space at the end of this clip.)
Clip 4 -- Jamie sings the praises of Richard Hatch... who then proceeds to jump his bones. (No, I'm not kidding, but they might've been. I swear, this group of guys is so delightfully slashy.)
I owe many e-mails/replies to many friends, but right now I'm exhausted and am heading straight to bed. :)
