Holy Frak!

Seriously, how cool are these propaganda posters? Not that the shows/films they belong to are in the same league by any stretch of the imagination, but this campy WWII propaganda vibe is the main reason I fell in love with Starship Troopers (Psychic Doogie Howser was a bonus).

Now that Battlestar Galactica’s Season 4 is, for all intents and purposes, over. As all signs point to SciFi going forward with the godsdamned stupid idea of “splitting” S4 into two parts separated by a comfortable one year intermission. At least they are having the common decency of adding a little bit of extra time to “season five”. Honestly, I don’t care. I’d rather not have to wait yet another fucking year to watch episodes that are already in postproduction (WARNING: Mild Spoilers within, I do not recommend clicking if you haven’t already seen the midseason finale).

The article above from aintitcool.com has some info from a Q&A with Ron Moore, Mary McDonnell, Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer and has soom cool info on their own responses to the show. I will quote the following, which is really safe, nothing to do with the plot of the show. Check this out:

The script for the series finale made Edward James Olmos and Aaron Douglas cry, according to Helfer. Helfer describes her own reaction to the finale script: “Like somebody punched me in the stomach.” Helfer said the ending will compel fans to revisit the series’ beginning.

Oh, and in case you were not 356.92% certain that Mary McDonnell kicks major ass (from the same article):

Asked if she would consider a run for U.S. president, McDonnell replied, “Only if I can have Hillary as my V.P.”

If you enjoy BSG, I join Falconesse in recommending Jacob’s recaps at televisionwithoutpity.com There is already a recaplet (mini recap) for the last episode, so be careful not to click on recaps of episodes you haven’t seen yet. But otherwise, I highly recommend you read them. Just be careful, they will often run a bit “long” (specially on later episodes), but they are a really nice read. SciFi should be shoving suitcases full of Benjamins down his throat to blog for them, if you ask me.

Needles to say, if you don’t regularly watch BSG, get thyself to the nearest DVD Rental place and rent season one (make sure you get the miniseries, which is the “first episode”), or buy them if you feel like it. And please start from the beginning. It is a beautiful story, but it may be frustrating (not to mention horribly anticlimatic when you go back) to start anywhere but at the beginning. Sadly SciFi only has the few latest episodes available in streaming (unlike ABC who kindly has all of Lost available online. Take note, NBC/Universal!). Of course, I would not mention how easy it is nowdays to get torrents of whatever show you want to watch. Because it is wrong and I would never dare suggest that you stick it to the man in such a way.

By the way, this is all I will say about the latest episode (for now): Frakin frakity frak-frak
