Listen All of Y'all, This is 'Battlestar Galactica'

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 12th 2010 6:02PM
Mash-ups are always an invitation to a good time, but this one is particular fun because it actually matches its counterpart particularly well. They either have a surgically implanted eagle's eyes or more time on their hands than Father Time.

Some crazed genius media nut out there has combined the shoot-em-up goodness of 'Battlestar Galactica' with the shoot-em-up goodness of the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage."

Battlestar Galactica + Queen = Battlestar Rhapsody

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 27th 2009 9:10AM
If you're anything like me (first of all, you have my deepest sympathy and secondly, some mild chafing down there is normal), you haven't had the patience to catch up with the brilliance that is Battlestar Galactica but that won't make this song any less funny.

Comedy fanboy recording artist The Great Luke Ski has an eye for obscure musical references and turned Queen's classic stream-of-consciousness nightmare ballad into a near-complete retelling of Battlestar Galactica. A fan of the "great referencer" created the video below.

Some good and bad Battlestar Galactica news

by Keith McDuffee, posted Oct 25th 2007 8:50PM
battlestar galacticaSo, you've been enjoying those "Razorettes" we've been posting here lately, have you? Good. Good. There will be more of those in the coming weeks. And... AND... then, the Battlestar Galactica: Razor movie! Woo!

I've also heard some other potentially good news lately regarding our beloved series. It turns out that, due to the looming writers strike and how it could put a halt to new television for a while, there are reports that NBC may consider airing old episodes of Battlestar Galactica... on NBC!

OK, now for the bad news...

I'm finally through what's been a surreal yet exhausting couple of days in Vancouver. On my long trip back to Boston, I'll be preparing some stuff for you all to read, mostly dealing with how, as a fan of these shows, what it's like to step foot on the actual filming locations and touch things that, until now, we've only seen on television.

As promised, here's the second part of the digital press tour panel with cast members of Battlestar Galactica. I'm hoping to get the Atlantis and Eureka (and Flash Gordon) panels up within the next couple of days, as long as my new copy of the films work this time around. Enjoy!

TV Squad attends the Battlestar Galactica fan blowout: Part two

Battlestar Galactica: the ticket
Okay, we're back with the second half of Wednesday night's Battlestar extravaganza, and I think I've recovered most of my memories, got the feeling back in my writing hand, and decided I wasn't Cylon. For now.

After Lucy Lawless was done loosely emceeing the event, they opened up the floor to questions from the audience. Now, keep in mind that this event was really for the fans, so I expected a lot of "Um ... in Episode 9 from last season, Starbuck clearly had her pilot's wings on upside down ... does that have special meaning?" type questions, but thankfully all of the questions were stuff we thought we'd be asking ourselves, and only one person got up and asked for a job.

Battlestar, meet Warcraft - VIDEO

by Kevin Kelly, posted Jan 7th 2007 3:06PM
Some enterprising World of Warcraft players have recreated the opening to Battlestar Galactica using graphics and scenes from the game in a machinima video that ain't half bad. Gnomes, Cylons ... what's not to love? Although it really makes me jones for the show to return to the airwaves that much faster. When is a network going to finally get the right idea and put on an entire machinima show? When Red vs. Blue comes to television, then I'll stop ranting. Until then, enjoy a little BSG in your WSG.

Apologies to those of you who have never played WoW, as this won't make much sense. Just embrace the Battlestar love and run with it.

Out of the Blogosphere

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 21st 2006 4:19PM
  • Battlestar GalacticaHave you checked out Trivial TV? It's a great site about, well, TV of course. But it has an incredible search engine for TV schedules. Type in the day, month, and year and you can see the TV network schedules for that night! Very cool.
  • Paul Davidson has two TV-related posts up at his blog this week. One is Prison Break: The Drinking Game, and the other is about Battlestar Galactica and Lucy Lawless' fingernail.
  • Ken Levine has some thoughts on the O.J. book/TV special (written before they were canceled).
  • Entertainment Weekly's PopWatch blog says that John Stamos has pumped so much life into ER that the show just might be renewed for a 15th season.
  • A TV Guide reader tells Matt Roush that the reason why Jericho is a hit is because "it's Lost for Republicans."

Does anyone know Ausiello's five favorite shows?

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 30th 2006 8:50AM
Michael VartanSo I'm reading Michael Ausiello's column over at TV Guide.com, and he mentions that Michael Vartan was very, very close to joining the cast of one of his top five favorite shows...but then he doesn't mention the show's name! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...

Therefore, until he does reveal the name of the show and why Vartan didn't join, we're just going to have to sit here and guess. As a reader at the site points out, Ausiello's favs include Gilmore Girls, Veronica Mars, Lost, and Battlestar Galactica. The most obvious choice would be Lost, because, like Vartan's old show Alias, it's produced by J.J. Abrams. But is that too obvious? Not that it can't be obvious, of course. It would make sense that Abrams would offer him a role. I don't watch the other shows so I'm not sure what role he could have on those.

Jack and Jill and Jesus: TV Guide in 60 seconds

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 2nd 2006 1:47PM
  • Anthony Lapaglia's Jack gets some action on Without A Trace, as he strikes up a romance with Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio. Lapaglia says that the two are at "a hot dog stand" and he "plants a big one on her." I'm assuming that means a kiss, and "hot dog stand" isn't a euphamism for something else.
  • Matt Roush reviews the controversial new series The Book Of Daniel (he also likes the season opener of Battlestar Galactica but calls Four Kings "a generic dud.")
  • Did Alfred Hitchcock actually work on his TV show or just host it? Who used to pitch Paul Masson wines on TV? And what's the deal with Snuffleupagus? The Televisionary knows all.
  • In the print edition: a Q and A with Jill Hennessey, a behind the scenes look at the Cold Case Sprinsteen episode, and a guest column from designer Isaac Mizrahi.

Battlestar Galactica primer, Part 4: The main players

by Jen Segrest, posted Jul 14th 2005 5:58PM
adamaThe military leader of the humans is Commander Adama, who is as much of a dinosaur as the ship he commands. He had two sons, both pilots. Adama's favorite son was killed in a flight accident thus leaving Apollo as his remaining loving, but sometimes morally indignant, son of a somewhat hard to cuddle father.

A principle to the end of season tension is a promise he made early in the season to just rally the people around a joined hope was that he knew the way to Earth and the thirteenth tribe. It was later exposed by the President as a lie to one of the people he respects and loves most, Cara, to get her to break her loyalty to Adama and take on a quest for her. Cara's betrayal sends Adama into a rage of anger and orders the President arrested, and her presidency dissolved.

Battlestar Galactica primer, Part 3: The Cylons

by Jen Segrest, posted Jul 14th 2005 5:00PM
cylonsThere are two kinds of Cylons, one is a shiny silver a cycloptic warrior type similar to the old series, and another than looks like humans - a couple models of which are extremely hot babes. Now, there are multiple versions of these human Cylons. Each is identical (within the "model") but each seems to have a slightly individual personality.

Oh yeah and they have sex, lots of pretty nymphomaniac room rumbling sex as a manipulative tool, they are robot clone Succubi, if you will. When they have their spines glow red - that's the key the viewer has  they are Cylon.
