I'm watching. You're watching. Let's talk.

For those who are about to die (of grief at BSG’s passing) …

In dvd, finales, series debut, television, tv on 03/18/2009 at 3:14 pm

I keep telling myself I’m on vacation and yet here I am, ignoring another gorgeous blue sky for the pale blue glow of the computer screen. Frak it. After these five sentences about my beloved Battlestar Galactica — and the 2 skimpy TV on DVD blog posts that I have “post” dated to appear over the next two weeks — I am gone fishin until April 6.

1. Battlestar Galactica wraps up its four-season run Friday, March 20 with a two-hour finale starting at 9 p.m. ET on Space: The Imagination Station, which follows with a live fan forum at 11 p.m. ET which offers “An in-depth chat about the series finale of Battlestar Galactica and the legacy the show leaves behind.”

2. If you are a sometimes fan, you can catch up by watching or recording a repeat of the final run of episodes leading up to Friday’s finale. The marathon starts at 11 a.m. ET Friday on Space.

3. If you don’t know anything about this show, forget about the Friday finale. I’d love to say you should watch and appreciate it for the spectacular head trip/social commentary/inspirational drama that it is. But I am a little lost myself and I think it would just wreck it for a band-wagoneer. Go back to the miniseries that launches the series. It’s worth all four seasons. So say we all.

4. Stop your shaking. The next fix of the BSG universe will come April 21 when Caprica will be released exclusively on DVD. That’s the pilot episode of the series set in the time when the Cylons are created, focussing on the Adama and Greystone families. Esai Morales and Eric Stoltz are among the stars. The full series is set for release sometime in 2010 (Space has not yet committed to the Sci-Fi Channel Syfy Channel series, but we live in hope). On April 21, we’ll get the Caprica series pilot plus a load of extras.

5. Still trembling? Here’s a little something about the post-BSG Cylon-centred movie (bcast date eta) called The Plan. It’s an interview with director and BSG vet Edward James Olmos, courtesy of E! Online.
