Geek Syndicate – Episode 104 with Amanda Tapping


In our first episode of the new year we chat about the stupidity of science when it comes to dinosaurs and the new Judge Dredd movie.

In this week’s Week that was we have a bucket load of reviews and other cool titbits for you.

In our main feature the lovely Amanda Tapping of Stargate fame comes onto the show to chat about her latest project, the hit show Sanctuary. We find out about the show’s journey, from it’s roots on the internet right up to the first season which has just ended it’s run. There are some behind the scene insights on the cast and the way the show is developed. Amanda reveals what it feels like working on a show that is so heavily reliant on green screen work.

We were also able to tease some hints on what we can expect from the second season of Sanctuary.

    Hello! Greetings from California. Wow! This was an awesome interview with Amanda. I was laughing my butt off. You three really hit it off. I can’t wait for season 2 of Sanctuary to start and I hope you guys broadcast your little get-together when Amanda visits you in the UK. Have a pint on me. 🙂

    • geeksyndicate /

      THanks Sarah, I hope you’ll give some of our other episodes a try. Rest assured if we ever meet with Amanda in person we’ll have a recorder in hand!

  7. Totally hearing you on the Rogue Trooper movie. Easily my favourite character from 2000 AD (with exception of maybe Durham Red).

    Kudos guys!


    • geeksyndicate /

      yeah I think a Rogue Trooper movie would kick ass!

    Great interview w/ Amanda! Though I am a long-time fan of Sam Carter, I gotta admit I didn’t fully appreciate the skill that went into creating Sam until Helen Magnus came along. They are both smart, beautiful, warrior/scientists, but their personalities are SO different. Love ’em both!

  10. Thank you so much guys for interviewing Amanda Tapping for us… I haven’t heard any longish live interviews with her for ages… so WOOHOO!!!

    She’s so much fun to listen to and I really liked your questions cause that was pretty much everything I would have asked if I had the chance 😉 So yeah Amanda rocks and Sanctuary rocks but you guys rock, too!!!

    Can’t wait for season 2 which seems to be so far away right now.

    Great job!!!

    Great interview! Thanks! Amanda is wonderful 😀

      No problem Katie, glad you enjoyed it.

    The Amanda interview was amazing. Thanks so much for the sneak peek at Season 2! And about “The Seeker,” if you ever actually watch the movie I pity you, but the Dark is Rising Sequence by Susan Cooper is worth a read and a reread and actually centers on Arthurian myth more than anything else. Thanks for a great episode! (And my English teacher in high school had one of those desk R2s, so thanks for dredging up those memories…)

    Great interview maybe you guys could interview her again while she is there for Gambit. Amanda rules hopefully we will get many more seasons of Sanctuary.
