    Love Chris. He hit the nail on the head as to why the ratings are down for Universe – it’s hard to follow because you’re not always sure when it’s on. They’re either on hiatus or they change the nights. I know if it wasn’t for the Internet, I probably would be just as confused about when it’s on as Chris is. They need to air the season in August, run right through all 20 episodes and be done with it until next season, maybe taking a break for major sporting events or holidays here and there. I loved it when they did that with Atlantis season 5 and with Lost’s final season, why can’t they jut do that in general with these types of shows? They can still have year-round programming, just air one season of a show then air a season of the next show in its place, don’t split it up! I think this would have helped Caprica in the ratings department too, maybe not mnuch but it would have done better.

    I’m sure there are a lot of things that go into deciding how a season runs its course. Things like making an episode form start to finish (writing the script, it being okayed by standards and practices, actors reading through it, it being acted out, multiple takes, cutting, editing, etc), actors needing a break, probably a lot of exec room BS. That said though I wish the breaks weren’t so long (at least they aren’t BS:G long).

    @Browncoat1984 – He said it was hard to follow several times before mentioning the scheduling issues and he said he did his youtubing when asked about watching it. He wasn’t saying that the scheduling was the main cause, he was simply focusing on that aspect as his career and any option of being in future Stargate works requires him to tread lightly on production choices.

    Great interview! I really enjoy Chris and his incredibly wide variety of roles. Glad he is happy working on Sanctuary with “family.”

    Great interview! I love Chris. I had the pleasure of seeing him in person in August at a con in Chicago, and he’s every bit as charming in person as you would imagine. I’m looking forward to Sanctuary bringing back Druitt and seeing what they do with his character.

    Thanks for interview – love when you can download and listen. Feels it’s been a while since there were audio interviews. Chris seems to be a very nice person and he is a great actor. Hmm I better check back on the interview page again – maybe I have just missed the audio interviews… Have a good weekend!
