Happy New Year! Here's How 'Battlestar Galactica' Ends

31 December 2008 10:12 AM, PST | AirlockAlpha.com | See recent Airlock Alpha news »

This story contains Major Spoilers for the final episodes of "Battlestar Galactica." Lots of rumors have circulated on what fans can expect in the last 10 episodes of "Battlestar Galactica" when they premiere on SciFi Channel beginning Jan. 16 -- many of which have originated right here at SyFy Portal. But as a New Year's Eve gift, SyFy Portal is releasing what is likely one of its biggest spoilers of all: we're sharing how "Battlestar Galactica" is going to end. Will this final scene reveal the final Cylon? No. Keeping our promise to unidentified members of the "Battlestar Galactica" cast and crew, we're still not going to reveal that information. But the final scene could be considered a spoiler surrounding events that fans are eagerly awaiting answers, so continue reading at your »

SyFy Portal's Top Television Episodes Of 2008

31 December 2008 9:55 AM, PST | AirlockAlpha.com | See recent Airlock Alpha news »

Picking the top series of the year may be hard, but that's nothing compared to trying to figure out which of the hundreds of episodes produced in 2008 should make the top 10 list from the SyFy Portal and Rabid Doll staffs. We did it somehow, and I know you likely won't agree with many of them. Heck, there are some even I don't agree with ... but this is what happens when you allow a group to decide instead of just one person. Share your thoughts, however, on the SyFy Portal message boards, which you can find by clicking here. So here it is, the top television episodes of 2008. 10. "Faith," Battlestar Galactica -- "You made me believe," William Adama tells Laura Roslin about whether Earth is real or not, and if you weren't a believer at the beginning of "Faith," you were at the end. »

2009 Mid-Season TV Preview: ‘Lost,’ ‘Damages,’ ‘Nip/Tuck,’ ‘24,’ More

31 December 2008 9:08 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Be honest, TV fans. Fall 2008 was lackluster at best. The TV season really starts now.

With the strike delaying production on established series and the development of new ones, many more programs are returning or premiering in Jan. 2009 than the average mid-season. It couldn’t have come at a more important time for the medium, too.

To be blunt, the first 31 days of 2009 could be one of the most important months in the history of television. It comes down to this - If established hits like “24,” “Damages,” “Nip/Tuck,” “Monk,” “American Idol,” “Battlestar Galactica,” “Lost,” and “The Closer” don’t meet expectations and if a new show like “United States of Tara,” “The Beast,” “Lie To Me,” or “Trust Me” can’t take off and become an established hit, television is likely to change forever.

Sound like an exaggeration? Consider this - NBC gave up on an hour of original, »

Diablo Cody to Live Twitter Her TV Show

31 December 2008 12:58 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Some television show creators (or what they call show runners) have provided commentary on various episodes on DVD. Others like Battlestar Galactica’s Ronald Moore, have gone a step further and released a weekly audio commentary in podcast form (just as Kevin Smith has provided a commentary that fans were able to listen to while his film was still in theaters). But as far as I know, no one has done a live commentary of their television show. Enter Diablo Cody.

Love her or hate her, you must admit, Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody puts herself out there and is very accessible. I guess that’s what happens when a blogger goes to Hollywood. Based on an idea by executive producer Steven Spielberg, her first television series, The United States of Tara, premieres on Showtime on January 18th 2009 (you can watch the pilot episode online right now). Cody has announced »

Misfits TV: 'Supernatural', 'Life on Mars', 'Stargate Atlantis' & more

As 2008 comes to an end, we have some great stuff to look forward to next year. Before some favorites return with new seasons (like Kyle Xy and Reaper), continue on where they left off (like Battlestar Galactica), or even debut (Dollhouse!!!), let's take a moment to reflect on Fall TV and how some of the Misfit-friendly shows Ryan didn't cover fared. »

Amazon Snafu? Posts Nearly All Battlestar Galactica Webisodes

29 December 2008 10:29 AM, PST | Tilzy.tv | See recent Tilzy.TV news »

Hey, Battlestar Galactica fans. Can’t wait until the January 16 premiere of the fourth and final season? Are those Battlestar Galactica: The Face of the Enemy webisodes satisfying, but with just two five-minute episodes released a week not satiating your desire for fraktacular entertainment? Amazon might have the snafu for you. SyFyPortal reports Amazon released all except the ninth episode of the 10-part online mini-series over the weekend, streaming four of the remaining installments well ahead of their scheduled release.  The Face of the Enemy tells the story of a “stranded Raptor ship carrying a group of passengers, including Gaeta (Alessandro Juliani) and a Number 8 Cylon (Grace Park). When some of the people aboard suddenly start dying, chaos ensues as they realize a killer is among them.” If you want to see how it ends ahead of time, I’d go here fast. I can’t imagine the episodes will »

Oops: Amazon Posts Nearly All 'Battlestar' Webisodes

28 December 2008 11:58 PM, PST | AirlockAlpha.com | See recent Airlock Alpha news »

Can't wait to see how the current "Battlestar Galactica" Webisode series ends? Neither could Amazon. The media sales company released all except the ninth episode of the current Webisode series on its Web site over the weekend, putting out four of five episodes ahead of its scheduled release. The Webisodes, written by current "Dollhouse" scribe Jane Espenson, feature Alessandro Juliani as Felix Gaeta and Grace Park as Number Eight (times two), in a separate story following the events of the most recent mid-season finale. The episodes have been released on both SciFi.com and Hulu, and was supposed to have a followup release for free on Amazon. But at least as of Monday morning, nearly all of the remaining episodes could be found right here. NBC Universal, which owns SciFi Channel and produced »

Welcome to the next installment of my epic re-watching of every episode of "Battlestar Galactica." The post below covers Season 2. If you don't want to read the text, you could just scroll through the pictures on this post, which are from "Sometimes a Great Notion," the next new episode of "Battlestar Galactica," which returns on Sci Fi Jan. 16. The photos are not spoilery; they mostly depict "Battlestar" characters wandering around the scorched landscape of Earth, with looks on their faces that seem to say, "The travel agent lied!"

Insights On Battlestar Galactica Season 4.5

28 December 2008 3:25 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

When you think Battlestar Galactica, (BSG), do you think of any other TV series like the modern day Star Trek series, Carnivale or Roswell?  Or how about Mission Impossible II?  Why would you, you may be asking?

You would if you were a follower of Ronald D. Moore, the man behind the show that has us scrambling to figure out who the final Cylon is.


Ronald D. Moore’s past experience as producer and writer have brought him to this point - where he’s got a pretty good handle on how to deliver a story.  His experience gives him the edge he needs to explore the darker side of humanity, to deliver a dark compelling story about how the Human race has been reduced to a few thousand individuals trying to survive while sorting out their place in the scheme of things.  Moore explores delicate social balances while the »

Battlestar Galactica Previews And… An Auction!

23 December 2008 8:13 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Battlestar Galactica season 4.5 is getting closer every day. For me, this is a first: I am actually anticipating a television shows return, despite how Sci-Fi has handled it. I’ve never been so antsy about a show before and to me, this is a testament to the writing, situations, suspense and every other detail.

It’s been one heck of a ride and as it stands we have many questions. Primary ones are: Who is the last Cylon? Did they really find Earth? What’s this whole “It’s happened before” thing? Then we have a ton of little ones: What’s up with Tyrol’s child? What’s up with the Bob Dylan song? Where’s the Cylon home world? And many more little questions we probably don’t even know we have until they slap us in the face with the answers.

Top Ten: Best of 2008 TV (A Limited Perspective)

23 December 2008 7:34 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Tuesday Top Ten: For the listmaker in me and the listlover in you

First things first, this disclaimer: I watch so little television that I'm rather like a SAG and movie awards show voter voting on the best of the film year having only seen 15 movies or so... (oh, come on, you know that's how they do. How else to explain the tiny pool of films they award or their lack of imagination in what to honor within those same films?) so with a huge grain of salt... my ten favorite TV-amajigs of the year

biggest anxiety: Joss Whedon's Dollhouse comes out in 2009. I've spent too much time in 2008 thinking about it. The reports of trouble on set are not surprising. This is the pinpoint reason I can't invest in TV... it's not safe to love anything. It's too emotionally draining to love TV. Movies last forever but »

Ron Moore: I'd Given Up On 'Caprica'

23 December 2008 12:15 AM, PST | AirlockAlpha.com | See recent Airlock Alpha news »

In 2010, the Twelve Colonies of Kobol will be seen in a slightly different light as "Caprica," the much anticipated prequel to "Battlestar Galactica," makes its SciFi Channel debut. Despite the renewed network confidence in the project, however, series creator Ronald D. Moore admitted that he had "given up" on the show ever becoming a reality. "You hear that a lot from studios and networks: 'Well it's not really dead, we're not saying no,'" he revealed to American Movie Classics. "But they're saying no. It's never coming back, and I just thought we were in that spot. It's a gamble: We're making a character drama in a science-fiction universe that has nothing to do with action/adventure each week. Nobody's been able to pull that one off, and it would be great to do that. It »

What's in a Name?

19 December 2008 12:59 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

In My Name Is Bruce, Bruce Campbell plays a cult movie icon who just happens to share his name, face, and résumé. But let's get one thing straight: Campbell, who also directed, didn't make the film as an ego-stroking tribute to his own sheer awesomeness. "This movie is not an ode to myself, as some have asserted," he says, chuckling, "because if it was, what a lousy self-image I must have." The alternate-universe Campbell lives in a ramshackle trailer, drinks cheap whiskey from his dog's bowl, and ekes out a living appearing in low-budget trash like Cave Alien 2. But when a teenage fanboy (Taylor Sharpe) recruits him to save the small town of Gold Lick, Ore., from a vengeful god of war, the actor must step up and prove himself a hero.This off-kilter idea was pitched to Campbell by Dark Horse Entertainment president and producer Mike Richardson (Hellboy, 30 Days »

Sci Fi Series' Ratings Benefit from DVR Viewing

17 December 2008 4:19 PM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

As more and more people time shift their viewing habits, watching hit and cult shows at times of their choosing, Nielsen Co. has released their year end top 10 list of shows that gained the most audience as a result of DVR viewing using live + 7 day numbers. There’s little surprise that the Sf genre dominated the list which included Heroes, Lost, and Fringe in addition to popular fare such as Grey’s Anatomy, Bones, and The Mentalist.

According to the list of cable series that benefitted, Battlestar Galactica topped the list, followed by Burn Notice, reruns of Heroes, Sanctuary, and Eureka.

Similarly, over in the UK, the BBC marks the first anniversary of the launch of its iPlayer catch-up TV service. According to the Guardian, Doctor Who was the show that had the most use followed by Top Gear. Genre series Merlin, coming to the Us via NBC in 2009, ranked fifth. »

watch it: ‘Battlestar Galactica: The Face of the Enemy: Webisode 1’

17 December 2008 11:56 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Well, if there was any doubt about whether or not we’re at Earth, this seems to have settled it: “Nine days after the discovery of a devastated Earth,” says the intro at the beginning of this webisode, “Lt. Felix Gaeta will find himself here.” Here. Okay, then... Oh, my: Felix with the foot and the drugs and the... boyfriend? And an oh, my for webisodes, too. If there any better indication that the people who make TV know that the Web is where TV is gonna be at in five years, webisodes are it. They’re training us for that with webisodes (even if half the people involved with producing them and promoting them right now don’t realize it). I’m sitting in a Starbucks as I write this, headphones in my ears drowning out the Christmas muzak, and I’m watching new Battlestar Galactica. Five years from now, »

Ten Forward: Best Genre Episodes Of 2008

17 December 2008 12:17 AM, PST | AirlockAlpha.com | See recent Airlock Alpha news »

Warning: This column contains moderate to major spoilers for those of you who still have unwatched shows on your DVR. As the end of 2008 nears, we suffer through the endless barrage of "10 Best" lists. "The 10 Best Books," "The 10 Best Movies," "The 10 Best Bartenders," "The 10 Best '10 Best' Lists," and it goes on ad nauseum. Well, I.m going to add one more to the nausea, because I can! (Insert evil laughter here.) The following is a list of "The 10 Best Episodes of Sci-fi/Fantasy Television of 2008." There were some rules I made for myself along the way. First, I can only pick one episode from each of 10 series. I cannot pick two episodes from any series, because seven of them would probably be from "Battlestar Galactica" and fans of other series would be sending me e-mails »

David Eick Departs 'Philanthropist' For 'Caprica'

16 December 2008 9:58 AM, PST | AirlockAlpha.com | See recent Airlock Alpha news »

It looks like David Eick's stay on the NBC series "The Philanthropist" was a short one. In her first act as the new head of scripted programming for NBC, Angela Bromstad has returned Tom Fontana to the series he created, and has bumped Eick back to SciFi Channel's "Battlestar Galactica" prequel "Caprica," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Fontana left the proposed mid-season series for NBC back in April when he hit a creative brick wall with NBC's previous management that included Katherine Pope. Eick replaced him soon after, taking on the role of executive producer and showrunner. "The Philanthropist" is about a billionaire named Teddy Rist, played by James Purefoy, who becomes a vigilante philanthropist, who travels the world helping people. It's being produced by Universal »
