Peter DeLuise interview

Date of publishing: 22nd September 2006

Peter DeLuise interview Stargate The Scifi World got the opportunity to meet and speak with Peter Deluise while he was directing the episode "Bad Guys" from Stargate SG-1. The interview was done on an external location in the area of Coquitlam, in the neighborhoods of Vancouver.
We were in a school transformed into a museum where we could see a lot of Goa'uld artifacts. We did that interview in several parts between several shots. The audio file is available and has been reworked to be listened all in once. The file is 5 minutes long, we had not much time for the interview as Peter was very busy directing the episode but we had some fun outside of it!

Peter DeLuise: I think the concept of Stargate SG-1 is very strong because it in its original inception the idea would be able to travel to other planets without being on spaceships so in essence it was in fact, Star Trek without spaceships, where we were going to these other planets and break the prime directive on purpose because we were messing with these people’s cultures and their ideas, because they were based on false ideas. We were actually saving them from their bleeps and giving them the science and facts versus their religious inaccuracies. So from the beginning I always thought it was a very strong idea and that the idea of a stargate as a set piece was always very strong as well because all you need to do is just walk over to the thing and anything was possible that’s what I like the infinite possibilities. I think that’s probably why the fans continue to watch because they know that anything can happen as long as it cost less than our budget.

Gilles Nuytens: How do you feel about the cancellation of the show?
Peter DeLuise: I’m sadden by the idea this show is going to end but every show ends, I was on 21 jump street and it ended after 5 years, Seaquest ended after 3 seasons, all shows ultimately end, but I’m sad for the fans because I know there’s a lot of people that wanted the show to continue and that they would like to see more stories come out of it, and I think that there will be other incarnations of it and perhaps they’ll figure out a way of selling it somewhere else but I know that the fan base is there and I’m sad for the people who want to continue to watch the show.

Gilles Nuytens: What does the 200th episode represents to you?
Peter DeLuise: The 200th episode was an enormous milestone, in most shows even Star Trek in every single incarnation only went 7 seasons so the fact that we went 10 seasons and 200 episodes, I think it's going to end being about 208 episodes, is just such an accomplishment in fact, I think it qualified as a genius book of world records at one point so to me the 200th is just a confirmation that the show was well made having good balance and that ultimately was very entertaining.

Gilles Nuytens: Dean Devlin wants a sequel to the original movie, with the original actors, what's your opinion about that?
Peter DeLuise: I think Dean Devlin is a very smart man, very savvy writer, producer, he created the original idea from which our series is based on. If he has a strong movie ideas for sequels to his original, I think he should go for it.

Gilles Nuytens: You wrote the script for the video game "Stargate SG-1: The Alliance", now it has been cancelled, how do you feel about that?
Peter DeLuise: Was it cancelled??

Gilles Nuytens: Yes, you didn't know?
Peter DeLuise: I thought it was being postponed, I didn’t think it was completely cancelled.

Gilles Nuytens: Postponed, postponed and finally cancelled ...
Peter DeLuise: Did they say why???

Gilles Nuytens: No ... well it was something about that conflict between Jowood (the publisher) and Perception (the developper).
Peter DeLuise: The stargate video game was... I spent a lot of time working on the stargate video game. I mostly was involved in the audio portion of it and the dialogue and so the fact that it is cancelled is very disappointing because I think the fans would have really, really enjoyed that game.

Gilles Nuytens: What is the story you are the most proud of?
Peter DeLuise: The story I am the most proud of? (Long pause) ... I don’t know.

Gilles Nuytens: Ok ... Which episode was the most challenging to direct?
Peter DeLuise: The most challenging episode for me was probably “Ripple Effect” which we had the twin hero character many times over but it was a welcomed challenge and I enjoyed doing it very much.

Peter DeLuise: What I’d really like to see in the upcoming seasons of Atlantis is a French scientist with a French flag on his French shoulder because they don’t have enough French people on their show. They’ve got Germans, they’ve got Czechs, and they have French background extras but they don’t talk, someone with a realistic accent, a realistic French accent whose an expert at something French.

Gilles Nuytens: Me!!
Peter DeLuise: Are you available?

Gilles Nuytens: Yeah!!
Peter DeLuise: You should be the guy!

Gilles Nuytens: Great!!
Peter DeLuise: Ok!
