Battlestar Galactica: Classic v. Re-imagined

Battlestar Galactica: Classic v. Re-imagined

I’ve been thinking altogether too much about Battlestar Galactica lately. Not sure why. Maybe because news has come out about The Plan telemovie. Maybe because Katee Sackhoff was cast in Season 8 of 24. Maybe because the Season 4.5 DVD drops next month. Maybe because I have the Caprica DVD sitting on the piano, mocking me for not having watched it yet. Maybe just because I haven’t been able to cope with the fact that the series is...

Battlestar Galactica: Eagerly awaiting The Plan

I’ve not ended the So Say We All blog carnival for simply one reason: Battlestar Galactica: The Plan – the BSG telemovie – airs in September and from what I read this weekend on SciFi Wire, it’s gonna be amazing.

Poor Starbuck. Serves her right for trusting Gaius Baltar. Oh, did I mention that spoilers abound? Read at your own risk. For a moment of night we have a glimpse of ourselves and of our world islanded in a stream of stars – pilgrims of mortality, voyaging between horizons across the eternal seas of space and time. That quote is from Henri Beston, from his book, “The Outermost House.” It has such resonance for last...

So Say We All: The Battlestar Galactica Blog Carnival, Ed. 4.5.7

And so we move one step closer to the end. The fandom seems a bit split by Someone to Watch Over Me, with some believing it advanced our knowledge of what, exactly, is going on and others wondering what the frak they were watching. I started more in the camp of the latter, but with time and pondering, I’m more convinced that we learned a heckuva lot, though I’m still not sure exactly what. OK, so I’ll just let you read what...
