Damian has updated his blog again with lots of info for us, so head on over there for the big update. Of particular note is making the website SanctuaryFans.com the official fan site.
"Sanctuaryforall.com is all about the experience and immersing yourself in the world of Sanctuary. With that in mind, the consensus was nobody can service the fandom like a bunch of fans. And so, in order to make sure our fans get everything they want and deserve, we’ve brought www.sanctuaryfans.com on board to act as a direct conduit to you. Sanctuaryfans.com will provide you all with the latest news, interviews, episode guides, images, videos, chats, blogs, quotes and so on and so forth. They are our voice in the online community and we’re proud to be working with them."
Also in the update was the news that the first four webisodes that are free will be released via You Tube and Google Video (among others) while the HD versions will be available for purchase from the official website. No word of price yet but you can buy Sanctuary by the webisode, or in blocks of webisodes, or the whole eight webisodes of the pilot.
Oh and on the trivia side of things Stargate: SG-1 isn't the longest running scifi series in history. Doctor Who has that record and it even has the longest consecutive record too, though it appears the GBWR got that wrong and won't supply the criteria it used either. Doesn't matter which way you cut it Doctor Who ran for 26 years straight before the small break in production.
Here's a mini rant on the subject provided by RealmOfX :
So how do they explain away that Doctor Who showed every year from 1963 to 1989 for 26 years? That is a continuous run is it not? 159 stories with 695 parts averaging 25 minutes each. A total of 17,375 minutes.
Whereas SG-1 showed every year from 1997 to 2007 for 10 years with 214 episodes averaging 42 minutes. A total of 8,988 minutes.
Doctor Who runs every year for 26 years with 17,375 minutes.
Stargate: SG-1 runs every year for 10 years with 8,988 minutes. NOT EVEN CLOSE!!
LOL RoX can get a bit hot under the collar :-)
The geek in me came across a few interesting things recently :
- An interesting concept of computers in the future, adds a whole new dimension to the old dilema of "Where'd I leave my pen?". Check it out at Slice of SciFi
- Not in my pool, nuh uh, no way. Check it out at The Green Head
- A flexible plastic battery? Yes Japanese scientists have made a polymer based rechargeable battery! Check it out at Gizmag
Catch ya later,
