Just now I started up iTunes to browse some songs in the online store and much to my surprise the podcast for Battlestar Galactica episode 314 began downloading. I am subscribed to the “enhanced” podcasts on iTunes, so I’m used to it all happening automatically. What’s odd is that the episode in question has not yet aired on television! Oops. For those without iTunes, the...

A great Battlestar Galactica podcast


Wow, I really feel like an anthro major right now. I’m currently listening to “The Battlestar Roundtable“, a podcast available on the Battlestar Galactica web site, and sitting back amazed and delighted that such a window on the personalities and process of artistic creation has been opened to me. The voices of Jamie Bamber (Apollo), James Callis (Baltar), Tahmoh Penikett...

Battlestar Galactica: Collaborators


I really don’t want this blog to become All Battlestar All The Time, but I can’t keep silent about the latest episode, Collaborators. It hurt to sit through it, but even so, I downloaded and watched it a second time this evening and came out thinking it’s a minor masterpiece. Further thoughts beyond the Read More link for those who aren’t afraid of spoilers.

Battlestar Galactica quote of the day


“Yeah, season 3 of Battlestar Galactica: Gaeta loses his cherry. […] I don’t care at this point. Man, woman, human, Cylon… I’d frak a daggit at this point. You know… just throw me a bone, guys.”
— Alessandro Juliani in David Eick’s Video Blog entry “Characters“

Battlestar Galactica: Season 3 Premiere


Last Friday my friends Sarah and Matt hosted a Battlestar Galactica premiere gathering. Even though they had just moved into their new house the day before, they provided an amazing viewing experience for their visitors, complete with a huge widescreen projection TV that had been bought earlier that day! The show lived up to the setting. Maybe it was the seven month wait, but I could barely...

Battlestar Galactica teasers


SciFi has long been a leader in web content for their shows, particularly Battlestar Galactica. Last season I spent quite a bit of time listening to commentary podcasts by Ronald Moore, usually made available right after the episodes aired. In the latter half of the season, I was often wondering, “What the hell was he thinking?!” and was glad to get some insight into that right away...

Battlestar Galactica update


Sixteen episodes into season 2, and it seems like time for an evaluation.
Unfortunately, I have not been impressed with three of the last four episodes. However, we did have the fantastic “Scar”, so I am not entirely disillusioned. Click the “Read More” link to see my spoilery thoughts.

Falling in love


I have become a Battlestar Galactica evangelist. In the past couple of months, I have pressed the season 1 DVD set upon half a dozen people. Several are now fans, and the others are at least interested. I would like to convert even more. Thus this blog post. At first blush, it seems absurd to suggest that anyone should spend precious time watching a remake of a cheesy 1970s television show with...
