Humans have an unfortunate tendency to trumpet opinions without waiting until they have all the relevant facts. This is basically why the internet was invented. Still, with that reality in mind -- along with a hopeful eagerness to remain guarded in our opinions -- we would like to say that Bryan Singer's just-announced reboot of Battlestar Galactica is probably going to suck.
Entitled Battlestar Galactica: The Plan and directed by Edward James Olmos, the plot details the back story of the popular show, focusing on the storyline of the Cylons prior to their attack on the twelve colonies.
No hardcore science-fiction fan's den of geekitude will be complete without every single episode of Battlestar Galactica on DVD, and this summer, that final piece of the puzzle will be available for purchase.
Battlestar Galactica houses one of television's biggest secrets: Who is the final Cylon? That answer will be revealed when the series continues next year. But now it has another hot secret--which will be revealed sooner. Two of the show's characters will be outed as homosexual before the final portion of season four airs (not-very-significant-to-the-overall-mythology spoilers inside).
The Sci Fi Channel's Battlestar Galactica may be coming to an end on television, but that doesn't mean the war against Cylons has to stop in your living room. And if you have ever had a hankering to prance around your house in the same slinky red dress worn by sexy Number Six (we're not judging you), by all means, get your checkbook ready.
Nerds, dorks, dweebs--it's almost time to put on your Viper pilot cosplay outfit and get ready to watch one of the best shows on television end its run. It is with a heavy heart and unbridled anticipation that Battlestar Galactica fans await the return of the show; on one hand, we're dying to know what happens, and on the other, it means the beginning of the end of one heck of a series.
While all Battlestar Galactica fans knew another stand-alone movie was coming down the pipeline, nothing was ever made official. Well, now it is.
Sci Fi Channel today announced "an all-new Battlestar Galactica special event" (fancy talk for telemovie) that's set to air in 2009 after the fourth and final season of BSG concludes. Like Razor, a previous Battlestar movie, it will be released on DVD shortly after it airs.
The two-hour flick will be written by Jane Espenson and directed by actor Edward James Olmos, who plays Bill Adama. However, Olmos may only be behind the camera; currently the only cast members announced for the film are Michael Trucco (Sam Anders), Aaron Douglas (Chief Galen Tyrol), and Dean Stockwell (Brother Cavil).
The "event" will take place just before the events of the miniseries that started everything off. According to Sci-Fi, the unnamed movie will show the aftermath of the ...Read more
The Sci Fi Channel's Battlestar Galactica may currently be shooting the series' final episodes, but that doesn't mean the sci-fi hit is done for good.
In May, The Chicago Tribune unleashed a tidbit of information that made BSG fans' heads spin--there was talk behind the scenes of making up to three made-for-television movies set in the Battlestar universe. The series already had success with a pair of telefilms: the two-hour pilot and Razor, so the idea wasn't completely alien. A follow-up by The Tribune in June reported that at least one of the new movies was "looking likely."
The latest on the prospects of a BSG movie comes straight from the mouth of Grace Park, who plays Sharon in the series. Speaking with
Battlestar Galactica creator Ronald D. Moore has confirmed what most fans have suspected for a while now: Oprah is the final Cylon. Kidding!
Moore told TVGuide.com that he doesn't see any way that the second half of Battlestar's season would air in 2008, confirming what had been speculated long ago. Previously, cast members had said that the last 10 episodes of the fourth and final season would not air this year, causing distress among the show's fans everywhere.
The Sci Fi Channel had a special sneak peek screening for the midseason finale in Los Angeles on Wednesday, and Moore told TVGuide.com, "Realistically there's no way to get back on the air faster [than early 2009]." It's not just about post-production, though. The network understandably wants to avoid competition with other competitors, such as major networks' fall schedules.

Games based on television shows are nothing new; just look at the interactive adaptations of CSI, Lost, Battlestar Galactica, and Heroes (currently in development). Likewise, games are consistently making the transition to other screens, though the trend is generally toward the Cineplex and not television.
Now, game maker Trion World Network and television-show maker Sci-Fi Channel are trying to make the idea of the television-to-game crossover a two-way street, according to The Los Angeles Times, in what could be the coolest thing ever or another failed attempt at synergy between two fields of entertainment.
The two companies are creating a property that will simultaneously exist on both of their preferred forms of media. Northern California-based Trion will develop a massively multiplayer online game (think World of Warcraft), and Sci-Fi, which has seen its popular Battlestar Galactica get the game treatment, will produce a television show based on the same storyline ...Read more
