PRODUCTION NOTES

  • “After ‘McKay and Mrs. Miller’ came ‘Phantoms,’ which was another one of those scripts where I first read it and thought, ‘I can’t wait to film this.’ In some ways it was a return to the ‘run and jump’ format for me. I’ve directed several dramatic pieces this season, which I love, but ‘Phantoms’ has a nice mix of the action and drama. It’s very similar to [the Season Six SG-1 story] ‘The Changeling’ where our characters are in their own separate alternate realities but don’t realize it. I got to do these wild transitional shots between the real world and the alternate realities, and it was amazing to watch how our actors dealt with their characters’ individual dilemma.” (Director Martin Wood, in an interview with Steve Eramo)
