Thank You For The Ride (FedCon Prelude)

Posted by melancholygeek on May 8, 2009

BSGYes, I have promised FedCon coverage, I know. But this week has been hell, plus I’m not quite done getting my head straight after the awesomeness that was the convention. The people I’ve met there, the guests, the atmosphere… Blew me away. So bear with me, you’ll get your scoop, probably starting this weekend.

Firstly though, here’s a fanvid by Mayanvideos that was shown right before the Battlestar Galactica panel with Olmos, Hogan and Hatch on Sunday. It’s set to a German song by Herbert Grönemeyer, but there’s subtitles, so don’t worry too much about it. But you probably want to have some tissues ready, for it still brings tears to my eyes triggers my allergies.

Make sure you also check out the HD version here.

A Little Something For The Pain

Posted by melancholygeek on April 18, 2009

dollhouseBSGSo, BSG is long over and not even a new Dollhouse episode this week. Such a shame. And seeing that Flashpoint is also on break and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles in limbo between seasons, I decided to give something somewhat older a chance this weekend: Tru Calling.

Tru Calling stars Whedon-veteran Eliza Dushku as Tru, a girl working in a morgue and having quite an odd connection to the recently deceased. No, not such a connection! Every once in a while (aka every episode), a corpse asks her for help and when that happens, she gets to re-live the day in order to stop whatever caused the death of said person. Add a little family drama and it’s a bit Groundhog Day meets Six Feet Under, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. And Tru Calling definitely isn’t.

Apart from the (so far) not-overly-compelling-but-nice story you get Eliza Dushku, which is always a plus, and her rather cute brother, played by Shawn Reaves, who is basically a, well, cute version of Matthew McConaughey.

And another thing for you BSG-deprived people out there: The pilot stars – as the semi-baddie of course – Callum Keith Rennie! And not enough with that, next the cylon comes up in the second episode, Michael Trucco aka. Mr. September (watch the episode, you’ll probably like what you see). And the guest spots are filled with quite some interesting people in general, so far I’ve spotted HeroesLeonard Roberts (D.L. Hawkins, back in the days when the series was actually good) and Chuck‘s Matthew Bomer (Bryce Larkin).

So, even though Whedonites ought to have mixed emotions concerning Tru Calling, seeing that Eliza Dushku turned down the Buffy spin-off Faith for this, go check it out. It’s definitely worth it.

Deaths Galore In BSG 4×14 ‘Blood On The Scales’? (SPOILERS, obviously)

Posted by melancholygeek on February 5, 2009

BSG

(SPOILER ALERT) Quite some interesting stuff is being said over at The TV Addict today about tomorrows Battlestar Galactica episode Blood on the Scales. Highlight to get the short version:

:: Two major characters will die (NOT Adama or Tigh). And one of the Final Five – not Tigh – will serve as the ‘Does He/She Die As Well?’-Cliffhanger. Don’t know how serious to take the ‘Adama in front of a shooting squad is a dream’ though. :: Check out the master’s own words here.

Battlestar Galactica 4×13 ‘The Oath’ SciFi Trailer and Tidbits

Posted by melancholygeek on January 24, 2009

BSGSo, the issues that keep me from writing up original stuff here still persist, so it’s canned food for you again (in case you’re interested though, ADFMS impression is Awesome, 5/5 and not just because of the final minute):

Firstly, eat that, Dirk Benedict [via battlestar blog]

Secondly: io9 has some seriously neat cylony goodness here.

Thirdly (is that even a word?), I’d pay quite some money to know Callum Keith Rennie’s reaction to this [via AVSS]

And finally, the main part of this post, mutiny mayhem in next week’s episode, thanks to indysid:
