Revisiting the Death of Kara Thrace on Battlestar Galactica

It seems the death of Kara Thrace from Battlestar Galactica is still sticking in the craw of many a fan after her supposed death in season three and then her re-emergence in season 4 that eventually led to her disappearance, or ‘death’, yet again. It would seem that comics aren’t the only venue in which death is used as more of a temporary holdover than a true stopping point, but it seems to be that Starbuck has indeed finally managed to disappear from the series. The continuity of it however is highly confusing since taking a character out in the

TV Reboot? Or Revival? Here Are the Definitive Definitions — Don't @ Me!

If you follow me on Twitter — and really, why wouldn’t you? (unless I blocked you for coarsely cursing that I cover “Olicity” too much/not enough) — you’ve seen me cast side-eye at news outlets that improperly apply the terms revival and reboot.

So once and for all, let’s put the definitive definitions to paper, so that they can be framed and or properly filed away in the Library of Congress as anyone sees fit.

Grace Park On Hawaii Five-o Departure: “I Chose What Was Best For My Integrity”
Grace Park is finally answering questions on why she and Daniel Dae Kim abruptly left Hawaii Five-o, but the answers are still rather murky.

Park and Kim surprisingly left the show in June 2017 after seven seasons. Reports at the time indicated the dispute was over pay parity with other series cast members. Then a statement was issued that Park wanted to spend more time with her family.

But now, Park – who is talking to the media about her role as ambitious attorney Katherine in ABC’s A Million Little Things – is finally being forced to address the real story. Park told Entertainment Weekly that pay wasn’t the only issue: “There were a number of factors spanning the show that affected the non-renewal of my contract. I’m grateful for the lessons learned, but I chose what was best for my integrity.”

Specifics? “CBS and I weren’t able to

New Promo Video For The Predator Explains What Makes The Ultimate Predator So Badass

The excitement level for The Predator seems to have died down since those first initial reviews for the film hit the Internet. Those certainly didn't do the film any favors. Regardless, I'm personally still looking forward to seeing the movie. My expectations may have been lowered a bit but that doesn't mean I'm not going to enjoy it! I still think the film looks like it's going to be a blast! 

We've got a fun new promo video for you to watch today, though! This one puts the focus on The Ultimate Predator and it points out what it is that makes it so ultimately badass. I do like the idea behind the Ultimate Predator and how it was created from the collected DNA of the universe's most badass species. 

Watch the video and tell us what you think. I also included some official anime-style art that was done to help promote the movie.

How ‘Battlestar Galactica’ Brought Fans of the Original and New Series Together (Exclusive)

The new oral history of Battlestar Galactica, So Say We All (Tor Books), from bestselling authors Mark A. Altman and Edward Gross, tells the story of how a 1978 space opera greenlit in the aftermath of Star Wars, and featuring a robot dog and lumbering, mechanical robot villains called the Cylons, evolved into one of the greatest and most critically acclaimed series ever. Debuting on the Syfy Channel in 2004, the same season as Lost, Battlestar Galactica (truly born out of the ashes of 9/11) was not immediately embraced by fans of the original show when it was first announced as a miniseries — not the least of which was because the 1978 popular character of Starbuck, played by a swashbuckling Dirk Benedict, was reconceived as a kick-ass woman played by Katee Sackhoff.
