Mindy Newell: Chariots Of The Gods

“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!

Jack Paglen To Help Battlestar Galactica Transcend To The Big Screen

Sometimes, there’s a movie project that just doesn’t go away. They rumble on in the background for decades, with concepts kept alive only by the sheer willpower of those dedicated individuals involved. Battlestar Galactica is one such project – but now, it seems like it’s one step closer to fruition as Transcendence writer Jack Paglen has been hired to deliver a script.

Created by Glen A. Larson (Knight Rider, Magnum P.I, Quincy M.E) as a science fiction TV series in 1978, Battlestar Galactica ran for one season – ending in April 1979. It featured the premise that would provide the basis for every iteration of the show that followed – that our future humanity has migrated to a distant area of the galaxy, known as the Twelve Colonies, from where they have been defending themselves against a cybernetic race known as The Cylons. During a vicious attack, human survivors flee aboard spaceships,

Bear McCreary Soundtrack for Blood & Chrome Releases Today, Caprica Coming Soon

  • ScifiMafia
Press Release:

La-la Land Records Re-engages In The Cylon Wars With Two New Soundtracks Composed By Bear McCreary Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome on March 12th

Caprica: Original Television Soundtrack in April

La-La Land Records announces the release of two new soundtracks Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome on March 12th and Caprica: Original Television Soundtrack in April. Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead, Battlestar Galactica) composed the music for both series.

“In scoring the Battlestar Galactica prequels Caprica and Blood & Chrome, I returned to the unique combination of world and orchestral sounds that defined my previous score,” McCreary described. “But, both prequels had their own distinct approach. Caprica was interlaced with delicate chamber orchestra textures, solo harp and other-worldly source songs. Blood & Chrome is energized by heavy distorted-synthesizers and searing electric guitar performances. Listeners will hear, however, that all three series have a common musical DNA.”

Was A Web Series Format The Right Choice For ‘Blood And Chrome’?

SyFy's most recent Battlestar Galactica companion, Blood and Chrome, recently completed its ten episode run on the Machinima Prime YouTube Original Channel. Whether you believe Blood and Chrome could become its own series or if you found it to be underwhelming, it's notable that SyFy chose to release the feature in twelve minute web installments rather than one feature-length TV movie, as the channel had done with previous BSG properties. Was the web series route the correct path for Blood and Chrome, or would it have been better suited for TV? Just for kicks, let's compare it to The Plan, a BSG TV movie first shown on TV in 2010. The Plan was penned by Husbands writer Jane Espenson, so in a slightly different alternate universe it could have seen online release. As it was, The Plan hit SyFy in January 2010, and while its ratings are weirdly difficult to find, the

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome – are you glad to see Adama again?

Fans will have glimpsed leaked clips of the space-opera prequel pilot – but finally we have a chance to see the whole thing, albeit in small chunks on YouTube. What do you make of it?

When the reimagined Battlestar Galactica reached its climax three years ago there was already talk of spin-off shows. The prequel series, Caprica, showing the birth of the dreaded Cylon robot-race, came and went in a 19-episode single season. Caprica was far from terrible – but despite being set in a colonial empire of 12 worlds, planet-hopping and outer-space action were kept to an inexplicable bare minimum.

As a response, Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, another prequel series placing the action between Caprica and BSG, was mooted. The idea was to cover the Cylon war from the point of view of a young Ensign William Adama, later to become the gruff Admiral Adama. It was to be all conflict:

Blood and Chrome premieres online this Friday

  • CapricaTV
Well, holy frak. The sequel has a release date.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Blood and Chrome will be released online on Machinima Prime's YouTube Channel in ten 7-12-minute installments starting this Friday, November 9.

The full two-hour pilot will air on Syfy early next year, and an unrated version will be released on home video some time after that.

Refresher course from EW (because it's been a while):

For those who haven’t followed the B&C saga, the project was originally developed as a series for Syfy following the conclusion of the critically beloved Battlestar Galactica reboot and its movie spin-offs The Plan and Razor. BSG vets David Eick and Michael Taylor are executive producers, with Taylor writing the script from a story by Eick, Bradley Thompson and David Weddle. Jonas Pate (Caprica) directed.

The prequel follows young William Adama (Luke Pasqualino, UK’s Skins) during the first Cylon War.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Battlestar Galactica: Season Four’ Finally Closes HD Chapter

  • HollywoodChicago.com
Chicago – The high-def releases for “Battlestar Galactica” have been somewhat baffling. The problem for Universal was that A.) They had started releasing the series on standard-def when Blu-ray took off and B.) They needed a way to milk one of their most impressive cash cows for a bit longer. Consequently, the chance to individually buy all of one of the best science fiction programs of all time didn’t come until 2011. But that day has finally arrived with the release of the impressive “Battlestar Galactica: Season Four.”

Blu-Ray Rating: 5.0/5.0

Stick with me here. It’s going to get complicated. Technically, the entire run of “Battlestar Galactica” was available in July of 2009 but only in an expensive complete series set (currently running over $200). If you had a few seasons on standard that you were fine merely upconverting, you still had to open the wallet for the full series.

Exclusive: Composer Bear McCreary talks Human Target, Blood & Chrome

"If you only watched Human Target broadcasting on Fox, who knows what you heard? Because the compression can be really weird"

As if composer Bear McCreary's cult credentials weren't impeccable enough, with acclaimed and commercially successful releases and performances of his music for Battlestar Galactica, he's also provided the soundtrack to the likes of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, looming AMC creep-fest The Walking Dead and Fox's Human Target, the soundtrack of which is currently on release...

What can you tell us about Human Target itself and how you became involved with it?

Human Target was a project I got involved with when the series creator, Jonathan Steinberg called me in for a meeting and told me about the show. This was before the pilot was even shot, so right away this guy was thinking very seriously - most of the time a composer isn’t brought in until

10 days to go until Caprica returns - a new round of updates

  • CapricaTV
With only 10 days left before Caprica returns, different news bits are coming in from different places and hopefully there will be more of them in the next couple of weeks. Syfy has sent out screeners for episodes 1x10, "Unvanquished," and 1x11, "Retribution," to a bunch of TV bloggers and journalists, so we'll probably be seeing some reviews soon enough. Until then, here is another quick round of updates:

Michael Hinman (Airlock Alpha) has tweeted the writing and directing credits for the next two episodes. "Unvanquished" was written by Ryan Mottesheard and directed by Eric Stoltz, and "Retribution" was written by Patrick Massett and John Zinman (who had previously written the episode that introduced Vergis, "Know Thy Enemy") and directed by Jonas Pate.

Doug Drexler (CGI supervisor) has posted the Caprica 2010 Emmy Presentation Book over at Drex Files.

Sasha Roiz tweeted that he is currently filming an episode of House.

A 'Battlestar Galactica' Sequel Comic By Edward James Olmos? No Frakkin' Way!

"Battlestar Galactica" aired its final episode more than a year ago, but the story of Admiral William Adama isn't over yet.

In an interview with Screen Junkies, leading man Edward James Olmos — who played Adama and directed numerous episodes of the series, including the telemovie "The Plan" — revealed that he's currently working on a "Battlestar Galactica" sequel in comic book form.

"I'm going to go there. I'm going to go there in a graphic novel," he said. "Pretty soon I hope. I don't know. It just depends on whether people can get behind it and understand it for what it is. I think people will."

Olmos, next seen opposite Seth Rogen in "The Green Hornet," wants to find out what happened to Admiral Adama after he settled on Earth.

"I want to know what he's doing right now," said Olmos. "I kind of was left with him sitting about to build his cabin,

Win a Copy of Battlestar Galactica: The Plan on DVD

  • HeyUGuys
We’re big fans of the recent update of the Battlestar Galactica series.

The epic search for Earth and identity spread over five seasons was an amazing piece of television and looks simply incredible on Blu-ray and DVD.

The entire run of BSG is out on Blu-ray and DVD will be out in the UK on the 10th of May and we’ve got three copies of this prequel to the series to give away.

Here’s the official synopsis of The Plan,

This two hour long Sci Fi Channel feature film is set in the reimagined version of the Battlestar Galactica fictional universe. The prequel to the series begins before the attack on the 12 colonies and consists of newly filmed material and a compilation of clips from the TV series and mini-series.

What’s coming up in May

Here's what you've got to look forward to in May, in terms of movies, TV shows, DVD releases and games...

Last month, we trialled putting together an article at the start of the month to let you know what was coming up in the weeks ahead. We asked you if you wanted us to do it again. You said yes. Thus, the following article is clearly all your fault...!

Films

Lots to watch out for in May. Iron Man 2 is already tearing up the box office in the UK, with its Us roll-out coming on May 7th. Conversely, we get the terrible remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street on the 7th, which the Us got last week.

A much better bet, and arguably the film to beat this month, is Chris Morris' terrific Four Lions. We've got a review of that here to explain more about it

Blu-Ray Review: Second Season of ‘Battlestar Galactica’ Available in HD

Chicago – Releasing seasons of hit shows that have only been available for a few years in the first place on Blu-ray can be a tricky proposition, especially when it’s not the first.

7.30pm, Channel 4

Is Nigeria's sectarian violence really down to a Muslim-Christian clash? Journalist Peter Oborne and director Andy Wells say no: instead, this is a deep-rooted struggle for power and land, one which the government is powerless to contain; there are even allegations that the military may be behind some of the outrages. In village after village, we witness the aftermath of the massacres, including bodies thrown down wells and blackened patches where human beings have been burned alive. Civil war looks all too inevitable.
