new role for michael shanks

it's a Canadian drama called saving hope. he plays the Chief of Surgery who's in a car wreck, ends up in a coma & wonders around the hospital in something like spirit form, observing what goes on.
NBC has picked it up for the summer (2012) and if it does well, who knows? it might be his big break in american TV.

five things #138

Five secret phone calls from Mitchell to Jack

1. mitchell knew when his team members birthdays were from their files, but he didn't know what kind of cake they liked. had no idea what to get them as gifts or what they might have been given in the past.

2. he called about the all-to-rare team game night. what snacks to bring? (was there anything the others were allergic to, or just didn’t like?) what games were preferred? were there any poor losers?

3. mitchell wondered if there were any topics that were not up for discussion. jack told him that neither daniel or teal’c liked to talk about their late wives. sam didn’t mind talking about her late parents, mostly her dad, but preferred to talk about cassie. daniel would only bring up his late parents, or his grandfather nick, in relation to any archaeological work they had done. very rarely would any of them discuss their love lives.

4. when daniel was taken by adria jack advised to just be available if sam wanted to talk & teal’c might want company in the gym while he, literally, worked-out his frustrations.

5. when mitchell was trying to “get the band back together” he was hitting all sorts of walls. sam was clinging to area 51, teal’c was bogged-down in jaffa politics & daniel was all ready to go to atlantis. he called to say that maybe jack made a mistake, that mitchell couldn’t reunite SG-1 and even if he could, maybe he wasn’t the man to lead the team after all. jack more or less told him he was being ridiculous, suggested that he had confidence in mitchell as well as his leadership skills & to call whenever he need advice about his teammates.

Five things Teal’c remembers from the 50 years on the Odyssey that he does tell the others

1. he told them about movie night & pizza night, poker night, karaoke night, poetry night.... they did a lot to keep from being bored.

2. teal'c talked about the speculations that they had about what might have happened on earth if they were actually there all of those years. mitchell thought that 3-D technology would improve, sam was certain there would be a woman president of the U.S. & no one thought the stargate program would be made public.

3. he mentioned the cooking attempts that went wrong; sam's go at making souffle & mitchell trying, and mostly failing, to make his grandmother's recipes based on what he remembered of their taste.

4. teal'c brought up mitchell's on-going quest to recreate every video game he had ever enjoyed playing. he had talked sam into helping him, with limited success.

5. he said that daniel had tutored them in various languages & was annoyed that not one of them had a passable accent.

super bowl tomorrow

patriots vs. giants.

while i hate the patriots for the crap they did back in 2007 (or whenever) both manning brothers have a championship & i feel the force needs to be kept in balance.

ETA: the giants won. pooh.
