And the winner is...

How do you do it? I mean you had the answer within hours of me posting it! The internet is sure a pretty big place when you're looking for things.
Congratulations to Susan the Tartan Turtle for being the first in correctly identifying Cadboro Bay, Victoria, BC - and Gyro Park. Send me a mailing address and watch your mail! Seriously - how'd you do it?
Shooting for "Identity" coming up this week, after a bit of a break. And then - the last two of season 5. We better hurry up, you guys are eating them up fast...

Hey congradulations Susan the Tartan Turtle.

You were great in Ghost in the Machine last night. I loved near the begining with how Zelenka was giving McKay a hard time. Was great!

Chicago's less than a week away!

Kanku said...

I haven't had a chance to watch Ghost in the Machine yet (I taped it) but I can't wait to watch it. It sounds like a good episode (although, almost all episodes with Zelenka are good ^^)

Congrats Susan.

Hi, David.

Congrats to Susan on her keen eye!

How many episodes will you be in for SGA season five? Loved Zelenka (as always) in Ghost in the Machine.

Other than pigeons, what kind of hobby or hobbies does Zelenka have? What are YOUR hobbies? Avid reader? Gourmet chef? Whistle and hum at the same time (that's my hobby!)?

Best wishes, David.

Congrats to Susan! :)

And thanks for brigning back 'guess the picture'.

Susan the Tartan Turtle said...

Thanks for the "congratulations" - I have never been to Canada but with the help of Google I found the location of the picture.

Thanks David for cheering me up.


Carolyn said...

Excellent to hear shooting is starting up. And of COURSE we're eating them up, we LOVE all this stuff.

Can't wait for D*Con!

Private part of the message :

Hi David !
Here in France, with some friends, we're about to crete an association of Stargate Atlantis fans, to go to conventions, organize when we'll can, and share our passion for SGA.
So, for that, we're looking for some Honnor Member, and we would be very proud if you accept to be one of them; the first in fact ^^
So, I hope it would be ok for you. You can answer me at .
It's just an informal membership, but it would be a great thing for us !!!

See you soon, best wishes, Gwénaël.

You went to the zoo in Australia! Lucky stiff! I've always wanted to do that. :-) I guess I'll have to get you to tell me about it when I see you in ATLANTA next weekend!

Glad you are participating more in Atlantis! Gotta love Zelenka. I must admit I'm jealous that you saw the zoo in Australia. Something I've always wanted to do. I guess I'll have to get you to tell me about it when I see you next weekend in ATLANTA!

Rachel :-)

Elyse said...

ACK! NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MGM killed Atlantis! Season 5 is it! No more Zelenka. This can't be happening!

Leila said...

David, we are sick at the news. Like this week hadn't been crappy enough. No more Zelenka; no more McKay?

I feel like crying. Okay maybe I am crying.

The show was amazing and entertaining and MGM is crazy to cancel it.

Rosehawk said...

Hey David,
We're having a pizza party (with beer) in the lobby Saturday evening, well it's near the lobby. You and Chuck are more than welcome to join us and drown any sorrows.

Damn the news really sucks.

At least there will be movies and Zelenka just has to be in the movies...just has to be...

Did I mention this sucks, oh yeah, I did. I like the movie idea but it is much more fun watching each week.

Anonymous said...

David, Did they tell the cast before they announced it publicly or did you find out when we did?

Becky L said...

A belated congrat to susan on her win. Excellent job!

So very sad to hear the news about SGA. But I want to than you David for all the hard work you have done on the show. You've given us a lot of entertainment. Thank you very much.

OMG! NO! What you're gonna do now?
Are you jobless?Do you have to go back to Czech?
Why you're not posting?
No more Zelenka

Diane Renee said...

David, I just read the news about Atlantis being canceled. It's heartbreaking..Felt like crying when I heard (okay, I did a little)
I wanted to say that I adore you as an actor, you are great. You've entertained us for 5 wonderful seasons! The cast and crew of Atlantis will be sorely missed. It's an amazing show, with such a loyal fan following.
Hoping all the best for you!

Anonymous said...

Please just tell us they want Zelenka in the movie.

zlc said...

Atlantis without Zelenka wouldn't be the same, a least for us, Czech fans!!!

Nestava se kazdy den, ze bychom z americke show slyseli ceska slova, natoz se utoho takhle dobre bavily.

Mame unas takove rceni. Zelenka rulez! :D

Madi said...

Can't believe Atlantis is going to end, it makes me sad :( but maybe this leaves an opening for "Stargate: Zelenka"...?

Elyse said...

I hope you're having a good time at the con this weekend. And I hope that even with SGA'a demise, you'll keep blogging. It's the only way I'll be able to track what you're doing (accursed US entertainment magazines dont' cover Canada). Still looking forward to Beast of Bottomless Lake, and yes, I'll echo someone else's comment - hope Zelenka is in the movie!

Anonymous said...

Will you get to keep the blue shirt?

Darkrose said...

I'm still upset about the end of SGA (at least on a regular basis); I can't imagine how you and the rest of the cast must feel. Like everyone else, I hope you keep blogging, and I wish you all the best.

Anonymous said...

But the Beast of the bottomless lake will be a huge flop if Zelenka is out of our television.

bel said...

I also hope you keep blogging, so we can keep up with your projects, which hopefully include the SGA movie(s)!

Thank you for bringing Dr. Z to life for us. He's my favorite character.

Said to hear of SGA's cancellation.

I do hope you will continue on with the blog and the con appearances. I would love to, one day, thank you in person for your
work on Atlantis.

Best of luck in the future. (((HUGS)))

So sorry about the cancellation especially now that the horse....

Elyse said...

Just heard from a friend who saw you at the Chicago con this weekend that you'll keep blogging.


Hope to hear some more on your work on SGA (well, what's left) and hope you get to be in the movie, and definitey want to hear about new projects!

Hi David! I loved seeing you in Chicago this weekend, and as promised, I checked the taped version of the latest episode versus the version they showed at the con, and neither one had the scene with Zelenka talking about the 9th Chevron. 8-(

scarym said...

Sorry to see that your scene with Rodney was cut from THE SHRINE. Any chance you could fill us in on what was in it?

I would have love to have seen a goodbye between Radek and Rodney.

Thank you for this 5 years. I'm gonna miss Zelenka a lot :/, but hope that we can see you soon in lot of places.

Good luck David and thank you so much!
