Do I really only own one half-season of Battlestar Galactica?

How the hell did that happen?

Well, anyway, I want to buy another set, but...

So, new Battlestar Galactica tonight! I started out this post to whine about how I miss Viper pilot!Apollo and am not that impressed with politician!Apollo, but then...well, this happened:


...and I got distracted, even though I really don't like PETA (something about them euthanizing 90 percent of the pets they "rescue" seems...well...unethical.) And then, this happened:


And. Um. Oofah.

When Battlestar Galactica returns at 10 p.m. Friday with the first of its remaining 10 episodes, it will run 3.5 minutes long. SciFi plans to also post the overflow minutes online after the episode airs on the west coast.

The Great Luke Ski (think: Weird Al Yankovic, fandom-style) has a new song parody, "Battlestar Rhapsody", and it's available for free download. It's awesome; check it out. :D

The Watcher says not only is it "almost certain" that at least one Battlestar Galactica TV movie will be made this year, but the second part of the fourth season (which airs in early 2009) will be extended to 12 hours instead of 10.

The last episode of the current run of season 4.0 will air tonight on SciFi.

Esai Morales has been cast as Joseph Adama in the upcoming Galactica spin-off, Caprica. The series, a prequel of BSG, is set on the planet Caprica during the first Cylon war. Morales was one of the stars of second-season Jericho. Fans of CBS's twice-cancelled Jericho haven't given up hope that another network may yet pick up the post-apocalyptic series -- SciFi and the CW are apparently still considering it -- but if the actors are moving on, the writing may be on the wall.

Battlestar Galactica: Razor )

Also? I'm imagining what Supernatural (which gets about the same ratings as BSG, I think) would look like if we had BSG's budget, and trying not to be ill with jealousy. *g*

Not at all related, but less than 24 hours after rejoining Freecycle groups in my area, I'm remembering why I left. The multiple offers of puppies, kittens and young lab-mix dogs is downright depressing and, really, people, wtf is up with posting that you're looking for a 27-inch PLUS TV set? And laptops? And working treadmills? And complete sets of furniture? Greedy asshats. *leaves groups again*

Is Battlestar Galactica fandom actually wankier than Supernatural fandom, or did I just happen to start paying attention at an unusually wanky time?

Seriously, I saw two wanky posts yesterday (both of which were bahleeted), and now there's wank over a poll for favorite ships. Because apparently dozens of journals have been created for the express purpose of voting for Lee/Kara? And people...are actually going through and checking when journals were created. And the creator of the poll is now refusing to continue the poll because THE FUN HAS BEEN SPOILED. A flounce cannot be far behind. I haven't been involved with a fandom with shipping wars since X-Files; I'd almost forgotten about all that kinda stuff.

Relatedly, I'm up to episode six of season 3, still loving the show and anxious to get caught up so I can watch season four eps with the rest of fandom hopefully without wank. I did sneak and watch about five minutes of last night's ep because I am WEAK and have NO WILLPOWER.

I'm also kind of disenchanted with SPN fandom at the moment for several reasons, none of which is worth going into at length. I keep reminding myself that during hiatus, fandom will find ways to entertain itself, even if that means biting off its own metaphorical nose to spite its metaphorical face. This, too, shall pass, but it's annoying as hell while it's going on.

I've now seen the Battlestar Galactica miniseries and omg I LOVE IT. And amazingly, there seem to be no skeevy race and gender issues so far. There's an awesomely diverse cast and the women, though they are beautiful, are not just there for the t&a factor. They have purposes! And not just the purpose of window dressing! And the president of the colonies is an over-40 woman with OMG A BRAIN. Anyway, I'm starting in on season 1, but I doubt I have time to make it through all three (?) seasons before the new season starts next month. THANK YOU to those who pimped it to me. :D

I'm watching SGA, too -- hooray for Sci-Fi airing season one during the week! I considered buying season one today -- even had it in my hand -- but talked myself out of it for the time being. I'm really liking this show, too! Also thank you to the people who pimped it to me!

Still working on Torchwood and a couple of the other shows, too. :)

So, the earliest appointment I could get with my doctor is 2:30. There's nothing on tv, and none of my dvds is looking particularly attractive atm. I can't sleep because I can't breathe, and I'm looking for something to take my mind off that fact for awhile. So, what should I check out? G'head, pimp me your favorite fandom (aside from SPN, Jericho, Buffy/Angel/Firefly, X-Files and ST, naturally, since I'm good in those departments *g*). I prefer TV at this point, I think, since I can easily DL an ep or two, and if it's not working for me I can always look for something else.

My all-knowing flist, what should I watch? Tell me in 100 words or less (or, hell, more, if you're in the mood). Show me pictures that illustrate what's awesome about your show. I'm open to pretty much anything. What'll it be? SGA? Torchwood? Moonlight? Battlestar Galactica? Blood Ties? Something else?
