Last week, the show took top honors at the Television Critics Association Award by winning Program of the Year. Too bad the Emmy award people aren’t nearly as cool. For a list of winners, go here.
If you haven’t already, I highly recommend you go and read Bear McCreary’s blog about his House of Blues concert during Comic Con. It’s filled with tons of great pictures, some videos, and a lovely retelling of the events of the night. Go check it out.
Forgive me for being a huge salcker and not posting during the BSG highlight of the summer–Comic Con. From all teh things I heard, saw, and read, there were really only two big things that excited me (the rest just made me in sanely jealous). The first being, Edward James Olmos hinted at the fact that if DVD sales for The Plan did well, then it might be possible for them to shoot more BSG movies, a la Razor. Exciting, no? So be sure to pick up your DVD when it comes out in late October.
And the other thing? Could Adama men be more adorable? I submit that they cannot:

In honor of things getting started at this year’s Comic-Con, here’s a look back at the BSG panel from last year. My personal favorite moment was when Katee impersonated Tahmoh doing Blue Steel while shooting “Resistance”. Hilarious.
Sitrep has a review up for the release of the complete series on BluRay. You can go and read it over here. I wonder just how good the show looks on BluRay; I’m betting pretty fraktastic. The complete set will be released this coming Tuesday.
Head on over to TelevisionWithoutPity to vote for BSG this week. They’re in three of the ten categories, so go and show your love.
Mary McDonnell was on last Monday’s episode of The Closer. Anyone see it? I heard she was her awesome self. Sadly, I can’t find the full episode to link you to (or watch for myself), so if you saw it, let us know what you thought.
