Emily S. Whitten: Caprica: Before the Fall

5 hours ago | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Caprica, the 2010 prequel show to the 2003 reimagining of Battlestar Galactica, has been on my Netflix watch list for some time; but I blame Mindy Newell’s recent column for bumping it up to the top and getting me to actually start watching (I’m about five episodes in now). I love the modern Battlestar Galactica series, and thus would naturally have a desire to watch anything related to it; but BSG was such an entity unto itself that I was a little afraid of re-visiting it in this prequel format for fear it wouldn’t measure up. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to. It’s a different kind of show, and self-contained enough while still referencing BSG to be enjoyably tied to BSG without having to match it measure-for-measure.

For those who aren’t familiar with the prequel series, Caprica takes place “58 years before the Fall” of the Colonies that kicks off BSG, »

Why Edward James Olmos Calls Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "One of the High Points of My Career"

8 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

As someone with a resume that would tickle any nerd's fancies, for Edward James Olmos to call his most recent project "one of the high points of my career" is really and truly saying something. The Battlestar Galactica vet has portrayed more than a few iconic characters in his long and storied career, but his first foray into the Marvel Cinematic Universe by way of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. introduced the complex mind of Robert Gonzales, aka the head of the "real S.H.I.E.L.D." working against Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team to bring transparency to the once-great-but-now-flawed organization. "It's fantastic. I'm very honored and pleased to be a part of this world," Olmos tells E! »

Interview: 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' guest star Edward James Olmos

18 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

No stranger to taking command of a carrier on a sci-fi-tinged show, Edward James Olmos made his debut on "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." last week. We still don't know much about the "Battlestar Galactica" star's Agent Gonzalez, other than that he is apparently the head of The Real S.H.I.E.L.D., whatever that actually means. I didn't get many answers in a brief conversation with the "Stand and Deliver" Oscar nominee last week. It was one of those things where a nine minute interview became a 7:30 interview, which was made shorter by the need to repeat several questions due to a problematic phone connection. Still, I learned that Olmos has a long personal history with Marvel comics, which helped the producers woo him even though they couldn't tell him all of the secrets about Agent Gonzalez. Regarding spoilers, the only tidbit »

Agents of Shield to tie in with Captain America: The Winter Soldier

30 March 2015 12:25 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Marvel's Agents of Shield's next episode is to tie in with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it has been revealed.

'One Door Closes' will see characters Bobbi and Macky board the same aircraft carrier that provided the setting for the showdown between Captain America and the Winter Soldier in the 2014 film.

In a further nod to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Bobbi and Macky also encounter Agent Robert Gonzales, who will later rebuild Shield after the events of the film, Comicbook confirms.

'One Door Closes' will air in the Us on Tuesday, March 31 at 9pm on ABC.

Marvel's Agents of Shield returned to ABC in the Us on March 3, meaning UK fans watching on Channel 4 are a little over three weeks behind.

Adrianne Palicki (Bobbi Morse) has been promoted to series regular status for the new run of episodes, while Drea De Matteo (The Sopranos), Luke Mitchell (The Tomorrow People »

Macross Cynicism Pause | Sony Pushes for Robotech Movie

26 March 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

I’m half Japanese. I’m an american. I’ve lived in Japan for a lot of my earlier childhood and 1/4 of my life. I have land there. I knew ramen was  life since the ’80s, and not cheap college student menu before U.S. hipsters of the past several years did. I even rocked a bento strong in elementary school, some of which were Macross branded. I was introduced to Macross through Robotech though, as I suspect most people in the U.S. were, but in my years in Japan, I’ve never come across anyone (the count is officially zero) who seem to care more about how Robotech came into being  as I have in english speaking messaegeboards in the 21st century. They have theirs, we have ours. As a child of both worlds it was never really a conflict, so it’s always puzzled me why it »

Agents of Shield, Ep. 2.14, “Love in the Time of Hydra”: An Edward James Olmos Appears!

25 March 2015 3:19 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Agents of Shield, Season 2, Episode 14: “Love in the Time of Hydra”

Written by Brent Fletcher

Directed by Jesse Bochco

Airs Tuesdays at 9pm (Et) on ABC

“Love in the Time of Hydra” is an episode that is over quickly and leaves one wanting more, in the best way. More Ward/Agent 33 Pulp Fiction tributes, more Fitz calling out Simmons, and especially more Edward James Olmos. More Edward James Olmos is always welcome.

The pacing in “Love in the Time of Hydra” is brisk, despite the episode being set-up heavy. Big chunks of exposition are much more palatable when delivered by Edward James Olmos, who plays Robert Gonzales, the leader of Other Shield. Olmos is the perfect choice to lead Coulson’s opposition. He is steely but soft-spoken, weary but wise, and strong. He doesn’t want to go after Coulson, but he believes it is absolutely necessary for the greater good. »

Outlander: the historical romance sci-fi fans could love

25 March 2015 5:26 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Here’s why sci-fi fans have something to look forward to in Ron D. Moore’s Outlander, arriving on Amazon Prime in the UK today…

24 years after publication of Diana Gabaldon’s beloved novel Cross-Stitch/Outlander (depending if you’re in the UK or Us), the first of 8 books in the Outlander series, comes the TV adaptation, which in itself is a project several years in the making. It’s been feverishly anticipated by the book fans, and with Battlestar Galactica mastermind Ronald D. Moore at the helm, it also spiked the interest of many who probably wouldn’t have watched a historical-fantasy-romance under normal circumstances.

Outlander is the story of Claire Randall, a World War II combat nurse who, when on a post war second honeymoon with her husband Frank, is mysteriously flung back in time to Eighteenth Century Scotland, where she finds herself under the protection of clansman »

Rumor: A Live-Action Star Wars TV Show May Be in Development

24 March 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A new Star Wars rumor has surfaced that’s kind of obvious, but also intriguing with regards to the details. Years ago, when George Lucas was still running Lucasfilm, a massive live-action Star Wars TV show was in active development. Lucas rounded up a bunch of talented writers (including Battlestar Galactica's Ronald D. Moore) and began mapping out close to 100 episodes of the potential series, which were then subsequently written. Lucas understood that the world of VFX at the time was too cost-prohibitive to make the TV show work, but he and producer Rick McCallum were confident that the technology would soon become cheap enough to make the TV series viable, and so they simply waited, with multiple seasons of this show already written. McCallum even went so far as to reveal that the darker tone of the series was “like Empire on steroids.” Obviously that series never came »

Chris Carter looks back on 'The X-Files' legacy

24 March 2015 11:57 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Last summer at press tour, I sat down with Chris Carter to discuss his new Amazon drama "The After," but my main interest was in asking him about another show he had created: "The X-Files." We spent 15 minutes talking about the legacy of that show, how he feels the TV business has changed in the dozen-odd years since it ended, and how he might be applying some of the lessons he learned there to this new project. When Amazon pulled the plug on "The After" before a second episode was even shot, I suddenly had 15 minutes of conversation with no news peg, and I figured this would just be something for my personal archives. Then Fox announced today that Carter, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson would be reuniting for a six-episode "X-Files" limited series, and I had the perfect context in which to finally transcribe that recording. We talk briefly about "The After" here, »

'House of Cards': Frank Underwood More Popular Than Obama

23 March 2015 8:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In Season 3 of House of Cards, which is currently streaming on Netflix, Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) finally ascended to the Presidency, although he performed a number of heinous acts to achieve his ultimate goal. As it turns out, more Americans would prefer to have this fictional Potus in office than the current Commander-in-Chief, Barack Obama. A Reuters poll taken earlier this month reveals that just 46% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Barack Obama, while 57% of respondents in the same poll gave Frank Underwood a favorable opinion.

In fact, several other TV presidents scored much higher than Obama's 46%. 24's President David Palmer (Dennis Haysbert) scored a whopping 89% favorable rating, out of those respondents who have seen the Fox series. The West Wing's Jed Bartlett (Martin Sheen) was just behind Palmer with an 82% approval rating, followed by Battlestar Galactica's Laura Roslin (Mary McDonnell) with 78%, and Scandal's Fitz Grant »

Outlander: ‘Game Of Thrones helped open the door for us’

21 March 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Ronald D Moore gave us a taste of the future with Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica. Now he’s heading to the past with his new time-travelling Highland romance that’s big on sex and swordplay

If the wet, wild landscape of 18th-century Scotland feels like an unexpected pivot from the man who rebooted space opera Battlestar Galactica, Ronald D Moore sees things a little differently. “I like doing period pieces,” says Outlander’s affable showrunner. “It’s just that some of them happen to be set in the future.” The decision to swap Cylons for claymores appears to have worked out. When it debuted in the Us on Starz last summer, Outlander – based on a series of bestselling novels – became one of the most successful shows in the cable network’s history; its dense, detailed mash-up of sex, swordplay and vengeful sassenachs winning impressive ratings and admiring reviews.

“I Still Love Film, But This is the New Golden Age of TV, with Deeper and Darker Approaches to Storytelling”: Molly Breeskin on Developing Television

17 March 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

I remember my first summer in New York. Washington Square Park was my backyard, I had an unconvincing fake ID that somehow worked, and I ate frozen yogurt for breakfast. I also remember spaceship battles and Cylons because when I wasn’t outside living the dream, I was in a Battlestar Galactica fantasy in my dorm room. And when I wasn’t binge-watching the television show, I was dreaming about it. The memories of my first summer in New York are largely constructed around this BSG association; it’s as if the context of my real life has been grounded in the memories of the fantasy one. I similarly refer […] »

Mindy Newell: Chariots Of The Gods

Space travelers in the gray mists of time? An inadmissible question to academic scientists. Anyone who asks questions like that ought to see a psychiatrist.” • Erich von Danniken

“It’s just one more thing to remember to charge throughout our busy days.” • Joseph Volpe of Engadget.com critiquing the Apple Watch

Well, I finished rewatching Ronald D. Moore’s Battlestar Galactica.

The most popular question (dissatisfaction?) I remember floating around the message boards connected with the finale of BSG was: “What, or who, was the returned-from-the-dead Kara Thrace, a.k.a. Starbuck?” And I also remember that there was a lot of frustration and unhappy people who were really angry with Mr. Moore for not giving a black-and-white answer. I suppose these dissatisfied viewers wanted to see an extension of Kara’s final scene with Lee Adama in which, in their imagination, she would say – sort of a Spoiler Ahead! »

VOD Review – Halo: Nightfall

16 March 2015 2:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Halo: Nightfall (2014)

Starring Steven Waddington, Siennah Buck, Mike Colter, Christian Contreras, Alexander Bhat, Luke Neal

Synopsis:

While investigating terrorist activity on the distant colony world of Sedra, Jameson Locke and his team are caught in a horrific biological attack that exposes them to a much deeper danger.

Halo is easily one of the biggest franchises in gaming to date, with an epic story full of grandiose sic fi tropes and strong characters by the bowl full. So it was always going to be a difficult prospect to translate its story into a live action TV show. Forward Unto Dawn was the first attempt and despite some flaws it pretty much got the tone spot on and by choosing to focus on human characters rather than good old John Spartan aka Master Chief, a lot of that burden was lifted.

Fast forward to the announcement of the Xbox One console and »
