Going Forward

From BSG co-exec producer Mark Verheiden's blog:

I couldn't resist poking around the internets a little in the aftermath of last night's mid-season finale episode, "Revelations," to see what there was see. Happily, most folks seem pleased with the episode, and that's gratifying. A few were wondering, hey, how can they top that? Where can the rag-tag fleet go from there?

Well, suffice to say there are at least 11 hours in the hopper that take us "from there," and the next/last round of episodes are, if anything, even more intense and personal than what's come before. All bets are off, nothing's out of bounds, and nobody (I mean nobody) is safe...

Out of curiosity, do we have any idea when they decided to pull this development as a mid-season event? Did they know this going into Season 4, or is this something about the S4 plan that changed?

To me, an episode like "Revelations" was as far as I thought BattleStar could ever go.

But there you have it.
Only mid-way through the season, they executed all this:
- Four secret Cylons revealed.
- Original Cylons conduct a civil war.
- Original Cylons lose immortality.
- Humans and Cylons forge a peace deal.
- Lee Adama becomes president (PUKE!)
- Gaius Baltar reveals his dark secret.
- Bill Adama & Roslin become an item.
- Earth is discovered.

Alot of the above was clearly rushed. Much of it shouldn't have gone down the way it did.

But I guess it's worth it...
IF a whole new paradigm can arise from the settlement of these arcs.

- No more Adama family control of the fleet.
- No more voodoo search for Earth
- No more repetitious dogfights.

From here on...
We'll see something that we haven't seen before.

That's the sense I get when Mark Verheiden says: "All bets are off, nothing's out of bounds, and nobody (I mean nobody) is safe".

Really exciting stuff.

Like I've said before, the whole Writers Strike was a Cylon plot to split the season into two.

Um here's the thing, every time one tries to second guess these guys and gals, um, we're like totally wrong because I mean show of hands...WHO thought from season 1 and the miniseries that frakking Saul MF Tigh was a CYLON?

So here's a little thought, as we all assume (and you know how that goes) that the Fleet found "earth":

1. Hints about the "ship of lights" in the dorky old school BSG: They found a planet called Terra, that was NOT earth. Hell Roslin and Co. coulda found Venus, before the global warming, or Mars, when it was still terraformed like us.

2. Kara Thrace has consistently been prophecized as the doom of Humanity. But what does that mean? Pure Humans can't survive on an irradiated Earth....but what about hybrids? or Cylons?

3. The fact we have to wait for this and LOST to come back should just make us thank the writers and producers who make BSG, LOST and the like rock on. And I mean seriously tell them and tell their corporate overlords THIS IS WHAT SELLS AND WHAT WACKOS LIKE ME LIKE SO MUCH I'M COMPELLED TO MAKE AN ADAMA FOR PRESIDENT WEBSITE!!!!

Seriously, I mean if this was CSI level crap you think I'd care about these "issues"?

greg:

The corporate suits don't give a d&^* what we as fans like. It is all about the bottom line that they can see in their short-sighted little minds.

Ron Moore gets it. The folks at SciFi or Univesral don't.

With this last episode, BSG has a chance to rise to the level of Babylon 5 in terms of story arcs and final meaning.

This was the single best effort of the series, and if the rest is as good as we are hearing...my heart just might explode....and I'll not be watching any more of them on a public terminal (can't get SciFi where I live).

ProgGrrl said...

I have been hearing rumblings about the season being split and a huge hiatus in between the two haves, for a long, long time now (over a year). It has to do with scheduling on the network, advertising $$, gunk like that.

Pragmatically, somebody has to pay the bills, my friends. You think our iTunes, Amazon Unbox and DVD purchases pay for the full production of the show and the salaries of everyone at BSG and Sci Fi Channel? No, they do not.

maann, i hope i don't cry when the series ends.

if they kill off Athena or Helo...i know i will.

Personally I'm with RADII - http://galacticavariants.blogspot.com/2008/06/revelations-review.html - Not impressed with this episode. At all.

Brisotope said...

What's the plural of hiatus? Hiatii? Anyway, these hiatii are excessive. TV has been able to go decades without having to give a show a *year* hiatus. Now, if it's just going to be till January, that's sort of tolerable. The show won't lose momentum for us true fans, but for casual viewers it will. And all viewers count in terms of ad revenues.

But they couldn't have begun a hiatus with a better episode. Revelations was great.

The What said...

maybe that radii guy needs to find some other show to watch.

Budo said...

Radii and a few others, yes. That was such a poorly written "review", I don't even know if he/she/it knows what he/she/it wants from the show.

The One True b!X said...

Radii knows what it wants from the show: Web traffic. What boggles me, in the main, about the review is that it's rather full of (1) not paying attention and (2) desperate cries that the writers spell things out in giant neon letters instead of just assuming the viewer is smart enough to be following along.

ProgGrrl said...

I watched "The Hub" again today and goldarnit I cried AGAIN at the end. Darned you, show.

Swan said...

i don't think it will be a whole year before it comes back on, Sci-Fi has always on occasion split their shows in half, it's usually about 6 or 7 months. it will probably be back in January...I hope.
