The Year in Review.

This is a time to reflect on the past things I have posted in here. So what better time to do it then on New Years Eve?

2012 was a year where I grew into a better writer. At least I think I have. So let’s touch on what I’ve written about this past year.


Well, January I only wrote 1 post and that was some things I was in the process of doing or going to do. Well, I was in another fan-made film. Star Trek Reliant. It wasn’t so much as a movie as it was an episode that was part of a much bigger project that I ended up being apart of later in the year. I never did try and write the sequel to the story I wrote 4 YEARS AGO now, lol. But I am writing on a project. As for reading other books besides Stargate based, well, it’s a work in process, LOL

I can’t help it. I need my Stargate fix. LOL


I set up a new WordPress website to write about my personal thoughts. I wanted this site to look and feel more professional looking. So separating the two worked out great.

The other post I made for this month was a fundraiser for Scifi on the Rock. That was a fun night. A lot of talented people came to preform. If you were at the show, you’ll agree with me.


There was only one post for this month. This was when the idea and thought of writing a script came into being. Yes, the same bloody script I’ve been trying to write all this time. LOL. But I believe I’ll get it done. *cross fingers*.


April had a few things happening. First one was my interview with the amazing Gina Holden. I’ll be doing more of these I hope in 2013.

I also had the privilege to interview Fraser Aitcheson. He’s such a sweet guy to chat with. And quite handsome, 🙂

In April I got to introduce a new writer for the website. An awesome friend and just as insane as I am, Sandra Simpson. I’m hoping to add to the authors list for 2013 so stay tuned. 🙂


May was a busy month. With the announcement of The Listener returning to CTV. I can’t wait to start watching season 4 coming up soon. :). Then there’s the first post by Sandra about the SuperMoon we all experienced. Then there was my interview with the awesome Alaina Huffman. She’s such a doll. A wonderful lady to chat with. :).

Then there was the Beetlejuice production. I wasn’t able to attend this play by Hann-Made Productions, but I hope to get to any other ones that’s being planned for the future.

Then there was a chat with Craig Olejnik with the awesome people from Sea and Be Scene. They are based in Nova Scotia. I got their permission to host their chat on the site. To do otherwise would not be professional. It was a great chat to listen to.


This is when I started writing my thoughts on The Listener episodes. Sometimes I would have to write two episodes together in the one post. Being a mom full time, it’s not always easy to take the time and post on time. But the great people at Shaftesbury are very understanding. I realize I still have episodes I haven’t written on. But I hope to have them done before the start of season 4.


Pretty much this month was posts about The Listener episodes.


This month is no different. I’m thinking of changing things up as to how I’ll write my thoughts on season 4 this time around.


Apparently I had nothing to write about in this month.


This month I introduced a new website by a new friend I made thanks to Twitter. Sonia Gilmore is a great inspiration. I’m thankful to her in lots of ways.


This month is a blank as well. I’m going to rectify this in 2013.


The post I made this month was to help promote a great group of people who gives us scifi geeks and nerds a way to buy merchandise to look and feel like our mentors. Albeit, they don’t have anything Sanctuary related yet, but not for a lack of trying on my part. Like I’ve said in my other posts and tweets,, I can’t make this happen on my own. If there’s as many people out there fans of the show like you say you all are, then why haven’t you gone to AbbyShot‘s website and keep making a suggestion for some Sanctuary jackets??? Or clothing in general. If there’s no demand for them, there’s none to buy.

The Listener 308 “Crossed”

The cast of The Listener

Welcome back everyone. It’s great to be back.

I want to apologize for the big delay in writing about this episode.  And I’m fully aware that I have one more to do before tonight’s new episode, but things have been very hectic for me lately.  I’m hoping to be all caught up in the next couple days.  I will have my thoughts written on last weeks episode hopefully by tomorrow night.  Again, I’m sorry for being late with this one.  So let’s get started.

The Listener 309 "Crossed"

Klein (Peter Stebbings), Michelle (Lauren Lee Smith) and Toby (Craig Olejnik) survey the murder scene.

Well within the first five minutes we have a murder. A very well known woman who’s worth millions. Motif??? We will see, but money does bring out the worse in people.  What impressed me though was the fact that when Michelle and Toby went to questions the husband, he said that he was here in Newfoundland.  That he just flew back that day.  But that he actually pronounced Newfoundland properly.  A lot of the times, people will say it as they see it. New Foundland is one.  That drives me nuts.  So the fact that both the husband AND Dev could say it right, made me smile.  Bless yer cotton socks, 🙂

Reporter Tia Tremblay (Melanie Scrofano) and Toby (Craig Olejnik)

Now toss in a new person into the mix.  One that intrigues Toby, and you have a recipe for mystery.  This episodes introduces a new character.  One that has Toby fascinated by.  Not to the point that she’s always popping up in places where everything was hush hush, but that he can’t read her thoughts.  Which makes me wonder.  Is she like him and can sense who he is?  Or she knows that he has a gift and found a way to block him.  Either way, this seems to pose as a new arc for the show.  Maybe a new love interest.  We’ll have to see.

One of the things that impressed me the most, and I was slightly shocked when I heard it too.  Was when Michelle and Toby went to interview the husband and he had told them that he had business in Newfoundland, and that he just got back from there.  Well he actually pronounced Newfoundland right.  I was like,,, “wow, he said it right.”  And not just once, but he said it again.  Then Dev had it in his line a little after that.  Though, I do have to wonder if they practiced saying it or were they lucky.  LOL.

Then we have Oz saving the life of a big time TSN broadcaster.  I’m not into football, but get on the topic of hockey and I can curse with the best of them.  Though, I may not know the player’s names, but I do get all roiled up when I do watch a game.

This meeting prompted Glen to offer two tickets to the game.  From which Oz was so excited to get them, but knew he couldn’t accept a gift for doing his job.  In the end, they came up with a way he could accept, but through a third party – Toby.

It was later that day when Oz met up with Toby at their usual hangout that he handed Toby a gift wrapped box.  Toby opened it and was so excited to see what it was.  Though, Toby being Toby, he couldn’t pass up a chance to freak out Oz.  It was at the same moment when Tia joined the boys.  Leaving Toby to say that he would like to take Tia.  Though he didn’t come out and say, he motioned his head towards Tia.  The look on Oz’s face was priceless.  Letting Oz look so disappointed, that’s when Toby told Oz that of course he’d love to take his best friend.  The look of relief was funny.  Poor Oz was sweating.  LOL.

I love this pairing.  Oz and Sandy make a great couple.  I hope it gets stronger for season four.  When Sandy went to Africa during the beginning of the season, first I thought, oh oh.  But when she came back I was so happy.  I know that with Sandy already having a failed marriage, she’s going to be cautious who she gets close to.  But Oz is the perfect match for her.  Plus, she helped tame him down too.  Which was very nice to see.  Go Team Sandy & Oz!!!

Olivia (Mylène Dinh-Robic) learns that Toby’s (Craig Olejnik) gift is not working.

It’s too bad these two didn’t work out.  But I’m glad that they were able to remain friends when their relationship went south.  Toby and Olivia were so cute together.  In this part, Toby went to Liv and told her that there much be something wrong.  He came across someone that he can’t read.  When Toby told her it was a woman reporter, Olivia kinda smiled.  But to ease Toby’s mind, she set him up for a small assessment.  But everything worked fine.  Toby was able to read every thought Liv put out.  After Olivia gave Toby a good bill of health, he went on his merry ole way.

Again, sorry for the very late posting of this episode.  I hope you can bare with me as I try to catch up.
