News You Can Use

The full video of Katee Sackhoff's appearance in Portland last Friday with KUFO's Cort and Fatboy is now up:

Katee took to the stage with Cort & Fatboy and fielded questions from the audience for 45 minutes. Enjoy the videos below which cataloged the evening. It's one for books...

Part One of Kate Vernon's Q&A with Sci-Fi.com is online.

The latest Video Blog features Bear McCreary working on the set for Someone To Watch Over Me. On his blog, Bear reports in great detail about the exciting Prelude to War ballet in Germany based on his BSG score. And instead of a detailed breakdown of the music in Daybreak Part One, Bear this week provides an entertaining quiz. Test your BSG music acumen!

Maureen Ryan, reports on SyFy channel's presentation in New York City where Daybreak Part 2 was screened for the press.
On Monday, the Sci Fi Channel hosted a press screening of the “Battlestar Galactica” finale, which airs Friday. Ronald D. Moore, the show’s executive producer, made the assembled media types raise their hands and swear not to reveal anything that happens in the show’s final two hours. And I surely don’t want an angry Centurion coming after me for even hinting at any developments in the finale.

But I was able to wangle a bit more information about “Caprica,” “The Plan,” “Eureka” and other upcoming projects on Sci Fi, which changes its name this summer to Syfy (doesn’t that sound like the name of a cream that your doctor would prescribe for a skin rash? Ah well. I said it before and I'll say it again: Sci Fi should have embraced real change and just named the channel after its famous cinematic opus, "Mansquito").

Tricia Helfer talked to Deadbolt.

Screen Rant and Access Hollywood wonder what's next for the cast of Battlestar Galactica.

meshel73 notes that the SciFi Australia website has posted some video interviews with the cast. Also check out the Battlestar Starfury: Saturday talks with some cast members.

With BSG ending, various publications have articles looking at the end. Discover ponders some ending solutions. UPI talked to Ron Moore. Rolling Stone and SFX have articles on the end of the BSG era. Users of the Battlestar Live Journal blog discuss what they want to see resolved. Writer Bill Harris wants people to write to him and let him know what's special about BSG. (Be nice.)

Brad Templeton has an interesting article on naked singularities.

CelebStoner (uh, yep) observes Roslin and Adama passing the smoke in Cottle's sickbay on BSG.

Graeme McMillan, for io9 offers up 5 suggestions for BSG spin-offs. My favorite, "Sherman Cottle, M.D.":
The high concept speaks for itself; it's House in space. Galactica's chain-smoking, ornery doctor has been an oddly calming presence throughout the show's history, never failing in his ability to speak bluntly and make even the worst situation just a little bit bleaker. This is what I'm suggesting - An hour-long drama about Cottle moving to a new hospital ship where the boss hates him but also has a crush on him, he has three flawed geniuses as assistants, and John Hodgman's brain surgeon is his long-suffering best friend. Sneak it onto NBC as a replacement for er and Emmies await, I'm telling you.

COTTLE MD would be absolutely huge. I'm surprised that this isn't an active project for Sci-Fi (sorry, SyFy) right now, along with the feelgood Anders sports drama (CYLONS CAN'T JUMP) and the Saul/Ellen sitcom.

I also spent way too much time yesterday putting together a BSG story-so-far thing for my blog, which worked out quite well (until I realised I'd completely forgtten about the song and had to go put it back in).

Two other things worth noting about Logan's links:

In Mo's piece:

“The Plan,” a 2-hour standalone movie that was shot last year, will “probably” air in the fall, according to Sci Fi executive Mark Stern. The date is not set in stone yet, but it sounds as though you can pencil in a November-ish air date for the Cylon-centric film.

And the ep that CelebStoner is referring to...that would be episode number 420. Heh.

@ Adam: your two history posts are FANTASTIC! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a comprehensive, high level and very readable review of the backstory and the series so far. It's a great way to prepare for the big finale.

Logan Gawain said...

@Proggrrl, oh my, I didn't realize it was ep 420. ;)

Dood! 420! Nice call!
