I love it when my job and BSG collide!

Woo hoo!

This weekend is Manitoba Comic Con and since I'm a media member, I have an opportunity Friday to interview BSG actor Richard Hatch! (YES! YESSS! So much for being professional and unbiased!)

Since my paper probably won't run the interview (stupid paper) I'd like to give the community here the opportunity to ask questions and I'll post the interview this weekend on the community.

SO, what do you all want to know? I NEED TO KNOW THURSDAY what you'd like answered.

:D

BSG Razor: Coming soon to a theater possibly near you

Battlestar Galactica: Razor to be screened for fans. (Warning: spoilers after the first four paragraphs)
There will be free screenings of the film in movie theaters in eight cities on Nov. 12: Los Angeles, New York/New Jersey, San Francisco, Dallas, Boston, Philadelphia, Seattle and, yes, Chicago. The screenings will take place at multiple locations in each city, but all of the screenings will be on the evening of Nov. 12.

Admission is free, but those who want to see “Razor” at a movie theater must first register at the site battlestarevent.com. The site will not go live until Friday. Repeat: The site will not go live until Friday. Seat registrations will be given away first-come, first-serve.

Some of the Portland Browncoats are talking about carpooling up to the Seattle showing. It should be a blast!

Season 4 - Promo Photos

Aaron Douglas had to cancel his appearance at the United Fan Con 17 (Nov 2nd - 4th). When I asked him why, he said it's because they're shooting the season 4 promo photos that weekend. 

So that's why we haven't seen any photos. They haven't done them yet. I have no idea what the turn around time is, but hopefully we'll be seeing some season 4 promo photos very soon :)

Battlestar Could Be Moving To NBC

'Battlestar Galactica' Could Move To NBC ... We Mean It


By MICHAEL HINMAN
Oct-23-2007

Yes, you have heard this story many, many, many, many times before. But thanks to this little event expected to begin next week known as the Writers Guild of America strike, there is a good chance that you may find some of your favorite shows like "Battlestar Galactica" and "The 4400" coming to a network near you.
Al Norton, the TV editor for Boston Now says it's a real possibility as networks scramble to find scripted programs that aren't simply reruns from their existing shows.

And it's a different world in television than it was in 1988 when writers struck for 22 weeks, causing many shows to bring down their tents midway through the season. Even "Star Trek: The Next Generation" tried to get around it all by digging up old scripts from "Star Trek: Phase II," but most shows don't have those kinds of luxuries.

Today, however, many networks own multiple cable channels, and nearly all of those have some kind of original programming or another. So don't be surprised if "Heroes" gets replaced by NBCU's SciFi Channel programming like "Battlestar Galactica," or even a watered down"Nip/Tuck" joining reality programming on Fox.

NBC Universal probably has the biggest library of cable programming to pull from thanks to owning both SciFi Channel and USA Network where they could easily start adding previously aired shows like "Psych," "Monk" and "The 4400" to the main network schedule. TNT isn't owned by a company that also owns a major network, but Time Warner officials reportedly are offering "The Closer" to networks ... for a price, of course.

"Battlestar Galactica" could be the biggest beneficiary. Although it's clear that a strike would delay production on the show's final season (and likely ensuring that the last 10 episodes will air in 2009), NBC could opt to start the entire show from the beginning or even start picking and choosing episodes it feels will draw viewers when they run out of existing scripted programs. "The 4400" -- which is possibly facing cancellation after a not-so-stellar fourth season -- may get new life with a run on NBC as well.

One thing to remember, however, is that not every show airing on cable is immediately available to the networks. "Stargate: Atlantis," for instance, is not owned by NBCU, and if it were to appear on any network, it would be after they negotiated with MGM.

Of course, no decisions have been made by any network as of yet. And while writers overwhelmingly voted to strike beginning Nov. 1, there are no guarantees that they actually will strike beginning a week from Thursday. So all you can do is keep watching, and see what happens.

a question

i asked a while ago where i can find (and IF i can find) any of the posters pictured below. apparently there's no place to actually purchase them, and i already have the wallpapers and small promo images. BUT, i'd like to actually own one of those babies.

my question would be: does anyone know who's in charge of promoting bsg? who's the person (or department) that i would need to contact to simply ask whether they're going to start selling these. somehow i've got the feeling i'm not the only fan out there who'd be interested in a owning a nice poster like that, and the ones i've seen for sale aren't half as awesome.

these are the posters i'm talking about, just in case anyone has any news on them, or knows something i don't. thanx. :)

unofficial bsg trailer

I realize this was from a year ago, but I stumbled across this 'fake' trailer on youtube and had the kind of reaction I used to get when there was new BSG every week. Nostalgia just sort of hit me hard.

Here is the link to the vid. There are no season three spoilers from what I can tell. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did, and if you've already seen it, it's definitely worth watching again.
