Battlestar Galactica

Starbuck Catches Typhoid Fever

Typhoid Thrace

And from our rumors department, Katee Sackhoff, who played Starbuck in Battlestar Galactica and that other bionic woman in that Bionic Woman remake, visited LA’s Golden Apple Comics and snatched up all the Typhoid Mary comics she could get her hands on. Why? Research! She’s looking to land a role in an upcoming Marvel movie!

This is kind of mixed news. On the one hand, Sackhoff kicks quite a lot of ass and would make quite the deadly Typhoid Mary. On the other hand, Fox still owns the movie rights to Daredevil. Could they be looking to reboot the Daredevil franchise? Or could Typhoid Mary face off against Ryan Reynolds in the Deadpool flick? I’d love to see Sackhoff kicking ass on the big screen and would be very pleased if she lands the role. I just hope the movie doesn’t suck.

Battlestar Galactica – “Daybreak Part 2”

Classic Battlestar Galactica Babes

Before we start geeking all over ourselves, Sci Fi has released a number of behind-the-scenes Galactica videos they were saving up until the finale aired. You can check em all out over here. In November of this year, Sci Fi will air “The Plan,” a two hour made-for-tv movie directed by Edward James Olmos that recounts major events from the entire series from the Cylon perspective. If you haven’t finished the series by November, don’t watch The Plan.

Alright, before I get too excited, let’s get into the spoilers.

Battlestar Galactica – “Daybreak Part 1”

Battlestar Galactica, Daybreak

Now before we get all spoilery and irritated over the penultimate episode of BSG, AZM Ally Nelly writes in with word that Battlestar Galactica: The Plan, a made for TV BSG movie, will air this June. It will recount the events of the entire series from the stand point of the Cylons. Could be quite awesome!

Alrighty then, let’s dive in to the mess that was the first hour of the last three hours of Battlestar Galactica.

Battlestar Galactica – “Islanded in a Stream of Stars”

Generation 1 Cylon Centurion

AZM Ally Greg got his review of the latest Battlestar episode in yesterday. Only two more to go. The last episode will be a double header, two hour long slug fest that will air at 9pm instead of the regularly scheduled 10pm. Sci-Fi will also broadcast all the previous episodes leading up to the final so if you have any leave, it might be a good idea to take next Friday off of work and just sit in front of your tele and let your brain ooze out of your nose. Okay, onto the spoilerific review!

Battlestar Galactica Movie?

Battlestar Galactica, 1978

Big giant RUMOR alert!

With the final season of the highly successful Battlestar Galactica reboot wrapping up and the new prequel series Caprica on its way, it would seem that we’ve got plenty of good sci fi programming to go around. While there have always been rumors about a feature film based on Galactica, now we’re getting word that a feature film is indeed in the works…

…wait for it…

…based on the original 1978 show!

I very much doubt it’ll star the same actors. Zarek is perfect as a dodgy, power mad, revolutionary turned politician, but he won’t cut it as an action star these days. And there’s no Lorn Green. My guess is that this will be a sort of reboot with a new cast, new sets and effects, but in the spirit of the original. This means no skin jobs, toasters will be toasters, and lots of sexy red-eyed “By your command.”

I have to admit, when I saw the pilot for the current Galactica series, I wasn’t quite on board with the skin jobs. Yes, there was much hotness abound. But I wasn’t sure about the Terminator 2 angle. Now that I’m fully into the skin jobs, it’s difficult to imagine Galactica without them.

This doesn’t sound like a good idea. The original series was fun, but it was a mindless sci-fi explody show with very little substance. The concept was freaking brilliant, but there was hardly any exploration of the human condition, at least not on the scale that we see in the new series. A movie based on the original show would amount to not much more than another effects ridden explosion fest. But who knows. This is all conjecture at this point since nothing official has been announced.
