BSG Kara - Badass

(no subject)

Gah, okay, I have an episode question.

I know I JUST WATCHED this episode... but I cant for the life of me remember which episode it is.

OKAY. So... its Kara, alone in a hallway, and she has one arm behind her back, and the other is up in the air, pointing to the ceiling and rotating.

I think it was Scar? Or something? Gah I really have no idea. Any help you guys could give me would be great XD I <3 that scene X3

Force Majeure letters and BSG

"From what I can glean, the casts of The Office, 30 Rock, Bionic Woman and Battlestar Galactica to name just a few shows on NBC and the SciFi Channels were informed Thursday and Friday that their contracts have been suspended. It's because Universal Media Studios has opted to exercise what's known as the force majeure clause in their Screen Actors Guild agreements.

The force majeure provision allows studios and networks to suspend SAG members' deals immediately once production on their shows has shut down, and the writers, who are theoretically supposed to have a four to six-week cushion before their deals are frozen, could be next. (FYI, The conventional wisdom is that the studios and networks are purposely waiting for sufficient WGA strike weeks to pass so that they can, in a first step to a major reorganization of their deals with showrunners and hyphenates, invoke force majeure -- a common contract clause that essentially frees both parties from liability or obligation when an extraordinary event, such as a strike, occurs. From that point on, all bets are off in the TV biz.)"

The rest of the article, plus a scan of the letter, is here: "Gulp! Force Majeure Letters In The Mail".

I can't imagine they're going to permanently shut down production, but this certainly isn't going to get the remaining episodes on air any faster. If the strike doesn't let up soon, that Spring 2009 date for the end of the series might become a reality.

Ron's blog #3 - Galactica wraps

The latest entry in Ron's blog ......

Galactica wraps
Saturday, November 17, 2007

Production wrapped on episode 413 late last night, and there's no certain date to resume shooting. No more scripts exist. My office staff has been laid off. My cast has been suspended, without pay.

I refuse to believe that we won't finish, that we won't be back to film our final stories, but I know and accept there is that possibility. The strike will be a seminal event for many of us in this business as it's put literally everything we care about in the balance (if only for a short time so far) for something we all believe is important.

Writers talk a lot about the strike, about the reasons we're out on the picket lines and our feelings and experiences in the business. It's been an interesting three weeks. I've connected with more scribes in the last few weeks than in many months before and I come away from it to date with a sense of optimism about the solidarity of the membership and admiration for my peers.

Galactica's coming back, I frakking promise you that. But I am ready to put the rest of the story on the table and take the risk that I'll never be able to tell it, in support of this strike.

Like Adama says, you make your choices and then you live with them.


A helluva gamble.
