What’s Next?

Since we’re almost through the first season’s round of Survivor (the penultimate vote will go up once things stop acting wonky around here and I can do things that involve code and graphics), my question to you is: what should we do to kill time during the hiatus? Would you like to see more games? Recaps or reviews of older episodes? More news updates? Let me know!


Season 4.5 Preview on SciFi Tonight?

At the BSG panel at ComicCon last week, a short preview of the final 10 episodes was played (they don’t show it during the video of the panel on SciFi).  Since this video has yet to be leaked to the masses, those who couldn’t be there have been wondering if The Powers That Be will let the public see the preview.  Well, rumor has it that the promo will air tonight during Eureka tonight at 9/8 Central on the SciFi channel.  Which probably means it will be on YouTube by tomorrow morning.


BSG Survivor – Season 1, Round 10

PLEASE NOTE: It was pretty obvious which episode was going to be kicked off in the next round, so I went ahead and eliminated “The Hand of God”; thus, we are now down to the final four episodes.  ALSO, if you have some ideas on how to kill the time during hiatus (more fun games, caption contests, another season of BSG Survivor, or something that might be original and creative) please oh please leave a comment and tell me what you think.

 

The object of the game is to vote off your LEAST favorite episode of Season 1. You have until 12pm Eastern on Thursday to vote for your least favorite episode of BSG’s first season. Don’t think an episode should’ve been kicked off yet? Unhappy that an episode is still around? Leave a comment and share your feelings.

ComicCon Coverage

A few things happened while I was away on vacation last week, such as ComicCon in San Diego, California.  A small part of me wishes I had gone there for a vacation, but only a very small part (I was actually on the beach with four generations of my dad’s side of the family).

But have no fear, there is plenty of coverage around the internet to look at and watch.  You can follow BSG specific details over at Galactica Sitrep, and if you’re interested in all the TV shows (or most of them at least) that were covered, I would recommend GiveMeMyRemote.com and DuckyDoesTV.com.  You can also head over to SciFi.com (WARNING: Explicit content) to watch the nearly hourlong panel with David Eick, Ronald D. Moore, James Callis (Baltar), Tricia Helfer (Six), Katee Sackhoff (Starbuck), Michael Trucco (Anders),  Jamie Bamber (Apollo), and Tahmoh Penikett (Helo).

That’s a Wrap

Mark Verheiden’s latest blog update informed us all that principle shooting for Battlestar Galactica finished early this morning.  I know one day I’ll be happy that the show ended at its peak instead of dragging on for too long, but today is not that day.

Tricia Helfer Interviews

One of the TV blogs I frequent, Ducky Does TV (if you don’t listen to his podcasts with Give Me My Remote, you need to and pronto), was part of a panel that was lucky enough to talk to the lovely Tricia Helfer about things like Battlestar Galactica and her new projects–Burn Notice & Inseparable.  To read the transcript of the conversation, go here.

Also, Tricia made an appearance this past week on E!’s Chelsea Lately.  Video of it can be found here.
