    Since sci-fi has no BSG, SG-1, Atlantis, Dr. Who or pretty much any other 'Friday night' show besides Sanctuary, they have to put up something soon.... I'm still getting used to seeing 2 regulars from BSG on Dollhouse. Kind of messes with my head. ;)

    The pilot movie is being released on DVD in April. I'm not sure when SciFi is even airing it. But the series itself doesn't start until sometime in 2010.

    I watched Caprica the other day. Very interesting. It was very well done and I enjoyed seeing the Adama's past. I'm not quite sure how I feel about the show as a whole yet. Hopefully there will be more.

    Finale Battlestar Galactica episodes due on DVD/Blu-ray in July

    Battlestar Galactica: Season 4.5, which includes the epic series finale, arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on July 28 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

    The set features more than 13 hours of extras, including three extended episodes of the series finale that never aired on television, never-before-seen deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes featurettes and commentary and podcast interviews with executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick.

    Also coming is a 20-disc Blu-ray Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series edition and a 25-disc standard DVD set, both of which contain every episode of the thought-provoking series, together with extensive bonus materials delving deep into the richly imagined world of the hit SCI FI Channel original show.


    So does that mean that the 20-disc set is also out on the 28th? It seems Sci-Fi is unclear...wouldn't be the first time!

    Oh, I'm sure it will, especially since the BSG sets have always been a bit more pricy than others (half a season for the price of a whole season from other shows). I haven't bought the DVDs so far for that reason, but I'm debating picking up the whole set. I'll have to see just how expensive it is.

    I liked Caprica, for the most part. It didn't have the action that BSG had, but then, it was suppose to be a different show. And in a way, this was just set-up for the series. I liked the fact that we got to see some of the Colonial history, notably, the first Cylons. And I liked that we learned things we didn't know before, such as the fact that their technology was so much higher than was in use after the war. (I knew/suspected it had been higher, but didn't anticipate the degree.) I also liked the tie-in with the "Soldiers of the One"... it gives us, finally, an idea of just how the Cylons ended up with religious beliefs, and a glimpse of where the attitudes came from. It's also an interesting plot mystery for going forward in the series.

    I watched this last night on DVD. Very nice. (And I was more than a little surprised at how much T&A was shown in the club!!!:eek: )


    It's nice to see how the colonies were. The Taurons were very Sicilian... cool. I hope in the coming series that we get to see more of the other planets. All we've seen so far is Caprica, and hints about what the other planets are like. It's almost shocking how much angst there is between the colonies, but it does explain things from BSG. Almost makes me want to re-watch the series just to pick up more of that.... not that I really need a reason to re-watch it again. [face_whistling]

    So, all in all, I enjoyed it, but I thought the Zoe, bring back your daughter plot was a little.... forced. It would have just worked if they were trying to get teh Cylons online due to inter-Colony civil war or something like that. This was a little too cheesy-drama-ey for me, but worked.... sorta Ok.

    And Esai Morales rocked! I liked him first in Jericho, and he did great in this. I hope his career goes far!

    I thought this one pilot was very well done. Artistically beautiful, some great acting scenes, and some nice BSG origin reveals.

    On the other hand, it was dark and more dark. With all that drama, somehow I still didn't end up caring about Zoe or her dad or her religious cause. What a shock after how I bled for the BSG characters.

    I'll give it another few episodes out of love to BSG. But that's my motivation, not from the merit of the pilot itself.

    I assume that the possibility of war is the motivation for everyone else; it just turned out that this one guy developed a more personal motivation. But now that you mention it... it does beg the question of who they anticipate fighting? Is it another colony/colonies? But if that were the case, why even pretend to consider taking the contract off-world to Tauron? Maybe Tauron isn't the main opponent, despite the obvious racial conflict.

    Speculating from a different angle - ok, so the Caprica government was developing the chrome Cylons for some possible conflict, but what about the Soldiers of the One? Though a little less front-and-center, it seems clear that they were developing the artificial intelligence for their own reasons, which likely would not bode well for the rest of the colonists. So what are their intentions?

    Battlestar's Olmos reveals why The Plan will leave you gasping

    Edward James Olmos, who directed the upcoming DVD movie Battlestar Galactica: The Plan, told an audience of fans that the film will deliver exactly what they expect it to: The Plan shows the Cylons' perspective on their attempted genocide of humanity.

    "I gotta tell you, not to give anything away, it is exactly what you think it is," Olmos said in a panel discussion Thursday night in Hollywood as part of the Los Angeles Times series The Envelope. "You see the complete opposite of the first 281 days of what we went through, ... seen through the eyes of the Cylons, and it is breathtaking. It's fantastic. It's not fun, but I will say that you will sit there [gasping]."

    The DVD release of The Plan will feature more than 30 minutes of additional Cylon perspective than will air in the version that will air on SCI FI.

    Both DVD and broadcast are apparently due in September.

    Looks interesting.

    I found out this week that one of the new interns at work is a BSG fan. She says it (presumably sci-fi) isn't her normal thing, but that BSG was such a good show. :)
