Can you hear it….? That distant rumbling….? That’s the sound of the best show on television coming in for a new season.
April 4th. 10:00PM. Sci-Fi Channel.
Some news tidbits from Buddy TV, which covered the Battlestar Galactica news conference:
- We get 10 episodes. The last 10 episodes will likely be in 2009. (Writer’s strike)
- Shows will be on scifi.com at noon that day for early viewing. Nothing specific on iTunes.
- Greenlight to the prequel TV series pilot, “Caprica”, which will focus on a time, 50 years before the show, before the first Cylon war. Will be a 2-hour movie in the fall.
- No vote on the movie of Battlestar Galactica post-season 4.
As the article closes:
The cast just received their first post-strike script and will resume production next week. Moore stated that, in writing the final season, his primary goal is simply to bring everything home and do justice to the series he has created. When asked about possibly expanding to a Battlestar Galactica film after it’s over, Moore’s answer was a definite “No,” claiming the series would not translate well to the big screen.
