Battlestar Galactica Season 5 Episode 1 – Dee is Dead. Ellen Tigh is the Fifth January 17, 2009

First new episode since June of 2008 and it was FRAKIN awesome –

Technically season 4 episode 11 (but after six months off gimme a break it’s Season  5 episode 1).

We did not see Dee’s death – that was soo sudden.

We’ve been saying for the past two years that Starbuck is a Cylon. So now we’ll say it again – Starbuck is a Cylon – isn’t she?

But what’s the deal with the rest of Earth?

Were they all really Cylons? Is Ellen Tigh really the fifth? It makes no sense.

The Cylons claimed they tested all the recovered bones on Earth and they all came up Cylon – does that mean that Earth was itself a planet full of cylons and there are actually Billions of Cylon models?

Battlestar Galactica Razor Flashbacks Airing During Flash Gordon October 3, 2007

Posted by showmescifi in Battlestar Galactica, Flash Gordon, razor, Sci Fi, science fiction, scifi.

How do you get real SciFi fans to watch THE WORST SCIFI SHOW ON TV? (that would be Flash Gordon)…you tease them with little bits of the most anticipated SciFi TV event – the November release of the two hour telemovie Battlestar Galactica Razor.

Why would ANYONE watch Flash Gordon otherwise? I can’t imagine it being extended beyond the 22 episodes that apparently have already been ordered.

Back to the flashbacks…these are the same type of things that SciFi did last years with the Resistance webisodes…we’ve been hearing about them for a little while now but now we know where they will first appear.

If you haven’t read about Razor – check out this earlier post on ShowMeSciFi.com with the teaser trailer.

Not bad..

Not bad at all.

The series premiere of the new Bionic Woman was a solid show. Katee Sackhoff is an awesome fembot, fearsome and maniacal and in my view – stole the show.

My favorite parts of the show both involved Sackhoff..showing her true cylon …er fembot colors.. The first was when Sackhoff shot Jamie Sommers boyfriend – the special effects of sommers bionic eye tracking the bullet and seeing the fembot…WOW awesome.

The second highlight was when Sommers met Sackhoff for a bionic woman battle – and just before they get started – Sackhoff calls for a – TIME OUT!! ha! brilliant.

Well i say TIME IN for Bionic Woman. Michelle Ryan(the former east-ender) was also solid and believable – though hey she’s no Lindsay Wagner.

Though there isn’t any new Battlestar Galactica on the tube , there is some great stuff at the comic book store.

I just finished reading Battlestar Galactica Season Zero issue #1 and…WOW great frakking stuff. Solid plot and character stuff..art isn’t fantastic but it’s not bad either.

The 6-issue Season Zero series follows Commander Adama and crew as they take on their first mission on board the Galactica. Though this is issue #1 its not actually the first issue in this series.

As reviewed here on ShowMeSciFi.com there was an issue zero for season zero – it was arguably the most widely read/printed/distributed Battlestar Galactica comic book of all time.

Battlestar Galactica Finale in 2009? September 6, 2007

Sit tight nuggets! SciFi intends to frak with you.

Though we all know now that that the next season is the last for Battlestar Galactica – apparently the season may well be split over the course of not one but two calendar years (2008 and 2009).

This is what i would call adding insult to injury.

Ok so the show is ending – that’s both good and bad. True diehard fans will watch no matter what. But the casual fan isn’t going to bother. The current 10 month gap between the last season and the next is bad enough..but SciFi channel that FAN HATING BASTION of non-creativity is going to do it to us again.

But what can we do? Petition the network? Boycott them?

i DON’T know….i guess as long as SciFi Network’s parent NBC Universal is making money they don’t really care.

More Bionic Woman teaser have emerged from NBC this weekend. The last ones we saw clearly showed us Battlestar Galactica’s Starbuck (Katee Sackhoff) as a cylon ..err i mean fembot.

In this new teaser put out by the network we see just how evil the Starbuck fembot may be….Former East-Ender Michelle Ryan is the good Bionic Woman but Sackhoff is sure gonna give her a good scare.

Check out the new teaser below…neat huh? Now i wonder who will play Steve Austin (The Bionic Man that was played by Lee Majors in the 70’s show…)

Battlestar Galactica Razor : 8 webisodes on the way! July 16, 2007

Posted by showmescifi in Battlestar Galactica, battlestargalactica, BSG, Empire Strikes Back, Sci Fi, science fiction, sciencefiction, scifi, star trek tng, starwars, TV, Zam Wesell.

Remember last year’s Battlestar Galactica Resistance Webisodes?


In advance of the two-hour movie Battlestar Galactica: Razor on Nov. 24, SCI FI will air an eight-week series of exclusive mini-sodes, between two and three minutes in length, beginning in October. The promotional shorts will provide a backdrop to events that will take place in the rest of the fourth season of Battlestar. Written by Michael Taylor and directed by Wayne Rose and Felix Alcala, the shorts will take place during the original Cylon War and center on a young William Adama (played by Nico Cortez), who discovers a dangerous Cylon weapon that will come to haunt him and his crew 40 years later. The mini-sodes will be available on SCIFI.COM after they debut on the network.

Neat. Though at 3 minutes each they will be painful to watch one at a time.

If you haven’t seen the trailer for Razor yet check it out, it’s frakkin cool.

Battlestar Galactica Game coming to XB0X360 and PC July 14, 2007

First there was a PS2 game which wasn’t too bad at all ..then there was the unofficial (but really great) Beyond the Red Line Game.

Now it looks like a small Battlestar Galactica game is coming the XBOX360 – but don’t worry about having to rush out to your local retailer to buy it..it’s so dinky you’ll just be able to download it from the Live Arcade.

Sign up to defend the Galactica, or play as the ruthless Cylons as they seek to remove the human menace from existence. Take part in enormous multiplayer space battles – up to 8 players online – or play through the single-player campaign.

Overall if early reports are to be believed – it could be a pretty decent arcade shooter.

Battlestar Galactica Razor Preview July 11, 2007

SciFi showed a 30 second preview of the upcoming movie Battlestar Galactica Razor – set to air in November.


War Is Our Imperative. So We Will Fight – Admiral Cain in Razor.

I see this movie based on the trailer – as a copycat approach of the Babylon 5 movie ‘In the Beginning’ (which was awesome too). Originally we thought that this movie would be all about Battlestar Pegasus, but it looks like its really about the origin of the war itself – which got an ok treatment in the mini-series- but will get a different viewpoint in the Razor movie.

Without any further ado..here’s the trailer that aired last night on Scifi. Enjoy.

Battlestar Galactica Unity – review July 4, 2007

unity.jpgWith no new Battlestar Galactica on TV for a few months yet…it’s time to turn to the paperback fiction episodes.

Battlestar Galactica Unity by Steven Harper is one such paperback episode (as is Sagitarius is Bleeding which we’ve previously reviewed). Unity is better.

Unity occurs during the period when Sharon is pregnant and being held as a prisoner on board Galactica. Galactica is being attacked by Cylon Basestars and Raiders which ultimately results in the destruction of the Basestar but an escape pod gets away which Starbuck discovers and brings aboard Galactica. Turns out to be a famous Colonial singer.

When the singer give a performance on the ship he ends up spreading a ‘virus’ . Long story short some religious zealots later and it all works out.

While plague type shows in SciFi are common, the BSG universe with Cylons (Cylons who think they are humans like Starbuck) and the various colonial religions add a real interesting touch that make this a solid and enjoyable read.

Though it wasn’t on TV, it had all the elements of BSG episode and easily would make a really good episode.

Battlestar Galactica – Admiral Cain and Six…How close were they? June 25, 2007

Posted by showmescifi in Battlestar Galactica, Battlestar Pegasus, battlestargalactica, Sci Fi, science fiction, sciencefiction, scifi.

We know that the next ‘NEW’ Battlestar Galactica event is

the Battlestar Pegasus Movie Razor which comes out in

November (link). There is rampant speculation that it will deal why Admiral Cain hates Six so much..

According to the speculation, Six and Cain were lovers (yup lesbos in space).

Considering that there is a direct to DVD movie version, i wonder if the producers will have an adults only rated version…

Battlestar Galactica Cylon APOCALYPSE #4 Out with a whimper June 15, 2007

I had high hope for this series when i first picked it up. This last issue was a bit of a downer though.

Starbuck gets stuck on the Cylon world..goes about his biz..then the fleet comes back to get him once he can send out his signal.

Nothing too exciting just a very average story and a week cliched ending.

Would have been neat if the Cylon’s turned into humans (as the result of the bio weapon)….. then again maybe not.

What’s a FRAKKING BSG fan to do?

The show is ending next year and even worse there are no new episodes to be had for months yet…what to do what to do.


Battlestar Galactica – Beyond The Red Line (BTRL) is a FREE game that is now available as a Demo for PC/MAC/LINUX users. It’s a fan effort and is not officially endorsed by BSG’s copyright owners.

In an interview with the BTRL developers one of them admits that they have not made any attempt to contact Ron Moore or NBC Universal directly regarding the project.

In choosing to develop a game based on “Battlestar Galactica” we are making use of the intellectual property of NBC Universal. We walk a very thin legal line by using this material as inspiration for our work, which is why our project is free to the public. The team has no desire to profit from this labor of love, but rather to bring a new and enjoyable “Galactica” experience to fans of the television series and video games alike.

If that is not proof positive that SciFi and Ron Moore are a bit out too lunch I don’t know what is. There is so much demand/interest in BSG, they could easily make good money with a solid game like BTRL, but they are too busy deciding on when to cancel the series instead of giving fans more of what they want.

ShowMeSciFi will have more on BTRL soon..but for now check out this trailer…oh and don’t forget to download and try out the came yourself! ()

Battlestar Galactica Season 4 WILL BE THE LAST no and ifs or buts about it June 1, 2007

Posted by showmescifi in Battlestar Galactica, battlestargalactica, BSG, science fiction, sciencefiction, scifi.

I don’t know why SciFi channel hates its fans so much.

We’ve known for some time that season 4 could be the last one, but instead of just admitting it, the show’s producers and SciFi have FRAKKED US OVER making us think there is hope.


“This show was always meant to have a beginning, a middle and, finally, an end,” Eick and Moore said in a statement Thursday. “Over the course of the last year, the story and the characters have been moving strongly toward that end, and we’ve decided to listen to those internal voices and conclude the show on our own terms. And while we know our fans will be saddened to know the end is coming, they should brace themselves for a wild ride getting there — we’re going out with a bang.”

I don’t have a problem with the show ending. I do have a problem with this on again off again bs. Considering how poorly SciFi has managed to market and schedule this show over the past year you’d think they were trying to lose money and purposefully undercut the potential success of BSG…maybe it’s all just a cylon plot afterall.

Battlestar Galactica’s Katee Sackhoff (Starbuck) in Bionic Woman fighting the Bionic Woman May 14, 2007

Posted by showmescifi in Battlestar Galactica, battlestargalactica, bionic woman, katee sackhoff, science fiction, sciencefiction, scifi, Zam Wesell.

Gotta hand it to NBC they sure know how to cast for a SciFi show. They’ve just released some initial footage from the new Bionic Woman show..one of the clips has Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica’s Starbuck) fighting The Bionic Woman Jamie Sommers. Katee Sackhoff is set to guest star in a re-imagining of the 1970s show.

Guess Starbuck (Sackhoff) really is a fembot! (aka Cylon!!)

All-Out War as the Galactica and her Viper’s do battle with the Cylons and their Raiders as Adama has ordered the virus released against the Cylon Empire! But, all doesn’t go as planned for Starbuck as he finds himself left behind on the Cylon world!

Another solid issue in a real solid storyline.

Starbuck getting stuck behind isn’t anything particularly inventive but he was just about to propose to Cassie so that kinda adds a twist to the whole thing. Only one issue to go and then this series is done.
Will all the cylons turn into reptiles and Will Galactica make it to Earth?

Just a few more weeks and then we’ll all find out.

Battlestar Galactica Season 4 will be the last season ! May 11, 2007

Posted by showmescifi in Battlestar Galactica, battlestargalactica, science fiction, sciencefiction, scifi.


Season 4 which is still 7 months away..WILL BE THE LAST for Battlestar Galactica.

Olmos says “This will probably be the most extraordinary season of ‘Battlestar’. It’s the final season, so it’s definitely going to be the most vicious. As far as we know, in respects of the way we have this show constructed, this is the final season.”

Sackhoff says “I think part of the problem is that it’s an expensive show. It is [a great show], but we don’t have the viewership that a great show should get.”


Ultimately it’s the not the viewership that is killing BSG – It’s SciFi Channel and that is where ALL THE FRAKKING BLAME should go.

How the frak can you have an 8 month layoff between seasons?

How can you put a tier 1 show on at 10 pm on a Sunday night and expect ratings?

Sure it’ll be a great season knowing that all the loose ends need to be tied up..but it’s sad knowing that SciFi totally mismanaged this awesome show.

bsgseasonzero.jpgThe series has barely begun but Battlestar Galactica Season Zero can already lay claim to being the most popular BSG comic book of all time.

How can that be??? It’s only at issue Zero.


Dynamite gave issue Zero away.

On Free Comic Book Day.

They gave away …drum roll please…


100,000 COPIES

Is it any good? Not really. It’s a pre TV movie era prequel that likely won’t ever be considered to be canon. Adama crosses into Cylon space to rescue a lost expedition and run into..surprise surprise – CYLONS.

Kinda reminds me of the bulldog episode.

Artwork is crap and the story is real baseline. But hey it was FREE.

Battlestar Galactica’s Katee Sackhoff (Starbuck) Returns To SciFi This Saturday! May 8, 2007

Posted by showmescifi in Battlestar Galactica, katee sackhoff, science fiction, scifi, YouTube.

Well we all now know that Battlestar Galactica’s Katee Sackhoff (Starbuck) isn’t actually dead on BSG. AND ShowMeSci readers know that she is a Cylon.

She’s also doing double-time on the SciFi channel with top billing credit in a  movie set to air this weekend called – The Last Sentinel.

 The basic premise is ‘basic and sorta like BSG, but more like Terminator. Humans build machines to protect them, then the machines turn on them.

“He was mankind’s last defender. Then he lost the will to fight. She (Katee Sackhoff) gave it back to him.”

Set in a deserted and ruined city it tells the story of the last survivors who remain fighting the lost fight against Drones, cultured and raised by mankind. Once again the human race is doomed by uncontrolled exposure to its very own futuristic technologies.

Heavily armed with implants of all kinds Tallis (Don ‘The Dragon’ Wilson, „Bloodfist“, „Blackbelt“), the soldier forms part of the last human array sent out against the predominant antagonists to save the world. Left with no chance at all they have to face a staggering defeat.

Left behind as the only remaining survivor of the disastrous battle Tallis prepares himself to operate discreetly, collect equipment and evade any kind of contact with the enemy from that time on. His pacifistic disposition doesn’t change until he rescues a heavily wounded female rebel (Katee Sackhoff, “Battlestar Galactica”, after being ambushed. Unified, the two of them pit themselves against the forces of evil.

Trailer is below – ENJOY BSG fans!
