In this new clip from Season 2, Fred and Carrie try one episode of the sci-fi drama. Then another, and another, and another, until it’s too late.
After the third season of the BBC series was enthusiastically received by fans, the new network host has branded the fourth season of the show "The New World", which would seem to signpost a new start to the franchise.
Plus: A Battlestar Galactica alum lands a steady gig, Dr. Phil is forever, and Jonas Brothers!1!
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.
Though recognition from awards shows has pretty much become a joke in recent years (OMG a Teen Choice Award!), it's still nice to see a deserving program take home a trophy. Especially when that program is Battlestar Galactica.
NBC's Heroes likes what it sees from new cast member Robert Knepper, who plays the villain Samuel in the upcoming season of the superhero drama. The actor has been promoted to "series regular," which means we'll be seeing a lot more of the charismatic bad guy.
Now that Battlestar Galactica is over, the stars of the hit SyFy drama are taking on new roles. From action-adventure to drama to comedy, the crew has the whole industry covered. A few main characters will appear in Battlestar Galactica: The Plan, a made-for-TV movie airing November 1, 2009 on SyFy. In the meantime, check out some of their new projects.
To be fair, there are some great picks in the 2009 Emmy Nominee mix: Bryan Cranston is nominated for his stellar work in Breaking Bad, Tony Shalhoub is up for his role in Monk and Jim Parsons got a look for The Big Bang Theory. Big Love and Dexter are both nominees in the Outstanding Drama series. And Lost got some well-deserved recognition, too: The fan favorite is a Best Drama contender, as is Michael Emerson in the Supporting Actor category.
But we've got a few bones to pick with the rest of the slate. Here are our gripes in descending order:
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.
It's looking like the network battle for Katee Sackhoff has finally been won. The sought-after Sackhoff broke out as a television star on Sci-Fi Channel's Battlestar Galactica as Starbuck, making her a hot commodity among networks seeking a new female lead. With BSG D-O-N-E, it's time Sackhoff found a new job.
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.
