Monk: Mr. Monk and the Miracle

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 29th 2008 11:23AM
Monk Christmas(S07E09) What does it say about this special holiday episode of Monk that the wittiest, most clever and memorable minute was when they unfurled the promo for the series return in 2009, using the music from Magnum, P.I. and dubbing the show Monk, P.I.? The USA marketing guys really hit a home run with that ad; it was brilliant.

Sadly, "Mr. Monk and the Miracle" was a sub-standard episode and hardly worth the moniker of "special." The mystery was rather simple -- about the most complicated piece of evidence was the hand print in the refrigerator -- and when Michael Badalucco (The Practice) appeared as Leland's pharmacist, you kind of knew he was involved in some way. Yet while the show wasn't up to the best of Monk standards, it did have a moment or two to redeem it.

Battlestar Galactica this and that: final episodes premiere date and DVD release

by Richard Keller, posted Oct 16th 2008 5:34PM

Coming on January 16th...the last 10 episodes of Battlestar GalacticaEveryone, take out your 2009 Ziggy calendars and Tinkerbell fluffy pens. It's time to put some important Battlestar Galactica dates down so you will be able to get both your DVRs and wallets ready.

The good news-bad news first. The final 10 episodes of BSG will begin airing on SciFi staring on January 16th at 10:00 PM. That's the good news. The bad news is when the series finale will air. Should the shows air weekly, and there's no reason they shouldn't, the last episode will be shown on March 20th. That's bad because the series is ending...not because March 20th signifies the end of the world or anything. Really, the scheduling is up in the air since executive producer Ron Moore has previously stated that the series finale may run three hours or more.

Olmos to direct Battlestar prequel movie

by Brett Love, posted Aug 7th 2008 10:02AM

Edward James Olmos - Battlestar GalacticaGood news everyone. It seems that this whole movie thing is working out quite nicely for the folks over at Sci Fi. Executive VP of original programming for Sci Fi, Mark Stern, now also counts himself as co-head of the newly formed Universal Cable Productions. Why should we care? Because at the end of the day that means a little more Battlestar Galactica.

The success of Razor is a big part of this. Stern describes it as doing "phenomenally well in the international and DVD market." It's led to a whole new way of financing and creating entertainment for the network. The new Battlestar project will air after the series completes its run next year. Edward James Olmos is on board to direct, and he'll have a script by Jane Espenson to work with. Both nice choices. Casting is still up in the air at the moment. So far, Michael Trucco (Anders), Aaron Douglas (Tyrol), and Dean Stockwell (Cavil) are confirmed.

The story is prequel-esque. It goes back to just after the Cylon destruction of human home worlds. We'll follow the Cylons as they deal with human survivors, aboard ships as well as on planets. There is also a hint that the movie will focus specifically on two of the Cylon agents.

Rumors hit the set of Battlestar Galactica about TV movie

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 30th 2008 2:21PM
Grace ParkFans of the almost late, definitely great Battlestar Galactica over at Sci Fi can keep their hopes alive that the series may return in the form of those oft-rumored movies. On June 27, Grace Park said that rumors of a Battlestar Galactica made-for-TV film have reached the set, where they recently had their wrap party for the four-year series. None of the actors have been contacted, and as we've been reporting all over the place here on TV Squad, the various actors and actresses are getting snatched up left and right for new shows.

Park's rumor had shooting beginning in August, which seems a tremendous stretch, as most of the new fall shows the actors are appearing in will be filming at that time. It would make more sense to try and film it during breaks. Or maybe it's going to go the route of Razor and feature mostly non-regular actors. Hell, she may have heard about the filming of prequel series Caprica.

Who knows what the hell is going on, but this is the new media. Facts be damned, I love Battlestar Galactica, and if Park had said this shortly before vomiting and passing out drunk off her ass, it'd still be worth a post. Anyone hear anything more?

Battlestar Galactica TV movies on the way?

by Brad Trechak, posted May 17th 2008 1:07PM
RazorApparently, NBC Universal wants to make more Battlestar Galactica television movies like Razor, possibly as soon as this summer. According to Maureen Ryan of the Chicago Tribune, discussions have just started regarding this.

Ronald Moore has stated that Battlestar Galactica in its current format would not be continued after this season. Given the death rate of the surviving humans, I wonder if any of the characters will be left to film after the season's end. My guess is that the TV movies would serve as filler for what could be a long delay between the first and second halves of season four.

What keeps Battlestar Galactica intriguing is that, much like Lost, you never know who will be alive or dead by the end of the episode. This makes for exciting storytelling.

On the other hand, the TV movies could simply be tie-ins to the upcoming prequel series Caprica. What do you think the TV movies would be about?

Michelle Forbes: In the Limelight

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 28th 2008 10:01AM
Michelle Forbes - WonderlandMysterious. Mesmerizing. Interesting. Dynamic. Compelling. Any and all of these words accurately describe actress Michelle Forbes. She is one of the finest actresses in television, and yet she has maintained a distinct quality that makes her as elusive a performer to come around since Garbo! Intensely private, there's not much known about the Austin, Texas native. (However, I can tell you that she collects clocks -- broken clocks. As she told me, quoting the movie Withnail and I, "Even a stopped clock tells the right time twice a day.")

She's currently making HBO's new drama In Treatment appointment TV, drawing her loyal following to find her latest work as she did in 24, Prison Break, Homicide and Battlestar Galactica. And that doesn't even take into account the millions who first discovered this chameleon when she first burst onto the scene in Guiding Light, and then Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Battlestar Galactica: Razor

bsg: razor
Rather than have you sit through what basically would amount to a more detailed version of the Early Look post I did about Razor last month, I wanted to at least make sure you all had a forum of sorts to discuss the movie. I will, however, mention a few points worth mentioning again ...

BSG: Razor Flashback - The war is over - VIDEO

by Keith McDuffee, posted Nov 20th 2007 9:40AM
bsg razor logoThe Batlestar Galactica: Razor flashbacks conclude here. We've only got a few days more before the Razor movie hits the air, and even though I've already seen the movie twice, I'm definitely catching it again. Usually these mini-episodes that accompany seasons of other shows are dull and uninteresting (I didn't care much for those earlier BSG ones, honestly), but these flashbacks have been a breath of fresh air.

The video is embedded after the jump.

bsg razor logoHere's the fifth installment of the Batlestar Galactica: Razor flashbacks (or "Razorettes"). As some have previously noted (and I don't believe this is a spoiler really), this clip and the following ones will be seen as flashbacks in the Battlestar Galactica: Razor movie later this month.

The video is embedded after the jump. Enjoy!

bsg razorAlright, I realize many of you have already seen this on the Sci Fi Channel during its regular time, but I do post these as soon as Sci Fi gets them out to me. Thankfully I've got the rest of the Razorettes queued up with specific "OK to post" dates for you, so they'll be up more timely in the future.

So, without further delay, here's the continuation of the Battlestar Galactica: Razor flashback ...

BSG: Razor Flashback - First Cylon War - VIDEO

by Keith McDuffee, posted Oct 25th 2007 2:59PM
bsg razorThe Battlestar Galactica: Razor Flashback videos keep coming in, though this one's a little late. Like I said, this is where things really get good with these "Razorettes" (as they're being called. Sounds like candy). There's no doubt that Adama was and still is one bad ass mofo. Oh, and if the fight looks over to you at the end of this clip, guess again.

Check out the third video after the jump. You can also go back and check out the rest of the razorettes. Mmm, razorettes.

bsg razorAnd the Battlestar Galactica: Razor Flashback videos continue. I was lucky enough to have caught all of these videos already, and I can tell you with certainty that these are all very much well worth watching if you're any sort of fan of the BSG series. Just wait until the next one -- holy frak!

I agree with most of the comments so far -- this guy plays a fantastic young Bill "Husker" Adama.

Check out the second video after the jump.

Battlestar Galactica: Razor -- An early look

by Keith McDuffee, posted Oct 13th 2007 3:24PM

"You are capable of setting aside your fears, setting aside your hesitation ... and even your revulsion. Every natural inhibition that, during battle, could mean the difference between life and death.

When you can be this -- or as long as you have to be -- then you're a razor."
-- Admiral Helena Cain, Battlestar Galactica: Razor

Yes, I was as shocked as the rest of you that, when I got to the TV Squad package drop the other day, one of those magical purple binders was waiting for me, emblazoned with a big white "IF", which could only mean one thing -- SciFi Channel goodness.

Before you continue, I will warn you that some of this is a little spoilery. I don't think it's much, but I'd rather warn you now than incur your wrath later.

bsg razor logoThe days are ticking down to the Battlestar Galactica: Razor movie, coming to SciFi on November 24. Until then, SciFi is releasing what they're calling "Battlestar Galactica: Razor Flashbacks". I'm told we'll get these about every week until the movie premieres.

This one features a couple of seemingly new characters who were once on board the Galactica during the First Cylon War. Check it out after the jump.
