BSG Linkroll Pt. X

Posted by melancholygeek on November 8, 2008

BSGSeems like work is even catching up on weekends nowadays, so here’s just a quick drive-by linkroll, mostly old news of course, so just see it as a reminder, alright?

As probably everyone knows by now, the return date for our beloved Battlestar Galactica is set! Season 4.5 will start on January 16, 9p.m. Central. That sets the series finale to March 20. 69 days to go…

As has been reported before, there were supposed to be webisodes to ease the pain of waiting. The good news: They are for real! And there will also be a half hour special “BSG: Essential Elements” even before that. But of course, there’s also bad news: Obviously we don’t get the ‘one webisode per week’ routine we’re used to this time. No, SciFi seems to want to air them all in one night, during the presentation of Pitch Black, on January 15! And even the half hour special will air only insignificantly earlier, meaning January 11. To quote crazyvictoria on battlestar_blog: Fail, SciFi, total fail.

Speaking of dates, there will be another Frak Party hosted by the BSGCast people honoring the launch of Season 4.5!

Some minor spoilers about Season 4.5: We’ll get to see more old-school centurions (yay!), we’ll get to know, what took the final Cylons so long to become aware of their nature (alrighty…), Boomer-Sharon will play an important role (gah!) and the Kara/Lee relationship won’t be fully resolved until the end of the series (pff…).

Tidbits! The BSG-prop auctions are finally rolling out, some people have too much time on their hands (and do awesome things with it), Vipers are just awesome (although I beg to differ on the caption of the first picture there, this is clearly an A-Wing design!) and as long as we don’t see new stuff with Tigh, Gaeta and Dee, we at least can just listen to them.

Oh, and this. 🙂

    YAY, you’re back! We miss you, MG. I hope you’re OK 🙂

  2. Hey…

    ‘Back’ might be a bit of a strong word… But I’ll try my best!

    And, well, same old, same old I guess… Too much work, too little sleep.

    Thanks for the shoutout for our event, MG! The BSGcast LIVE Frak-Party will be January 16+17, in Pasadena CA, in the same building as the BSG Prop Auction… On top of that, BSGcast party-goers will get a special advanced preview of the goodies at the auction on Friday before the bidding begins! It should be pretty awesome, and we’re hoping to raise even more money for even more charities this year!

    Hope to see you there!


  4. Thanks for the additional info!
