“Dial the Gate” Team Launches Spin-off YouTube Channel
The team responsible for “Dial the Gate,” Stargate’s live retrospective interview channel on YouTube, is expanding into a second offering.
“Wormhole X-Tremists,” a live Stargate rewatch channel, is taking flight with its introductory episode on Sunday, July 3 at 12 Noon PT. This pilot episode will allow viewers to begin to get to know the hosts and ask them questions.
Weekly segments of original content will be published throughout the summer, but the live rewatches will begin in late September or early October.
The series will feature Dial the Gate’s David Read and will bring on frequent DTG contributors (and bona-fide Stargate fans) Nicole Rodrigues-Galdo and Yvonne Cahill as permanent hosts. Read will executive produce, while Rodrigues-Galdo and Cahill will serve as producers.
Rodrigues-Galdo and Cahill were first discovered through Metro Goldwyn Mayer’s Stargate Superfan Project in 2019 via the now defunct Stargate Command Web site. They have since appeared on Dial the Gate as regular guests for trivia.
“I have been so overwhelmed with Dial the Gate’s growth over the past two seasons, and it just seems natural that it’s time to expand into a second channel,” said Read. “My cohosts are people for whom I have a great deal of respect and admiration, and I am so excited to start this journey with them and get to know them better as we rewatch some of the best television ever made.”
“My dreams of watching Stargate with other fans has come true,” said Rodrigues-Galdo. “Being able to sit down with people I admire and relive something so mutually important in our lives is such a gift. I feel so fortunate and I am so excited to laugh, cry and thoroughly embarrass my way through this again with the community. Comtrya!”
“In these uncertain times, there’s nothing more comforting than rewatching a familiar favourite with good people,” said Cahill. “We’re going to fearlessly go where we’ve all been before and reacquaint ourselves with the series we love, the fandom, and each other! It’s going to be like a strong cup of commissary coffee, or a big bowl of blue jello for the soul! I’m very much looking forward to it.”
The format of the series, particularly how the rewatches will work with a live audience, as well as which Stargate shows will be watched first, will be revealed in Sunday’s episode. Tune in live on Sunday at Noon PT to ask questions in the YouTube chat, which the hosts will then answer on-air, or watch it afterward in the channel’s archive.
The Wormhole X-Tremists channel can currently be located using this link: https://www.youtube.com/wormholextremists
