Special guest David Hewlett is on the GateWorld Podcast! The actor plays Rodney McKay on Stargate Atlantis, so who better to join us for our discussion of last Friday’s episode “The Shrine.” We chat about what we think made this week’s episode one of the show’s very best, and David gives us his unique insight into its filming.
It’s also a bombshell week in Stargate news, with MGM and SCI FI announcing the end of Stargate Atlantis and the green light for the third series, Stargate Universe. Don’t miss our special podcast next week where we will talk in-depth about the end of Atlantis, the start of Universe, and the current state of our favorite franchise.
In this week’s listener mailbag, we have plenty of feedback on Rodney McKay’s character. Fans also sound off on the Atlantis cancellation news.
