Stuff you just need to see

This is just a list of things I saw today that you need to see.

Doctor Horrible, Act 1, the 8-bit Nintendo version:

Mail truck converted into a Colonial Viper (original Battlestar Galactica design):

And it’s street legal!

And finally, to shed doubt onto the truism that anything is better with bacon, we have two entries:

an AT-AT made of bacon…

Review: Battlestar Galactica finale

It’s over.

For four years of my life (which, oddly enough, took six years), I’ve been watching Battlestar Galactica weekly. This redesigned joy from my childhood became an engaging, exciting, and dramatic story in my adulthood. As with any other TV show, there are excellent episodes and episodes that fell flat. A series finale, and the lead-in stories, must meet the highest standard, in my opinion – especially in an “arc” show (i.e., one that . . . → Read More: Review: Battlestar Galactica finale

Sci-fi rumors and news catch up

Well, here we are with more sci-fi news. This time it’ll be a mix of things old and new. Strap on your propeller hat and hang on, ’cause here we go…

Spider-Man 4 is apparently going to shoot in 2010 for a 2011 release. This is information gleaned from an interview with J.K. Simmons, who plays J. Jonah Jameson in the films. Sam Raimi is on-board as director and Tobey McGuire is set to reprise . . . → Read More: Sci-fi rumors and news catch up

The fifth Cylon – say what? (w/spoilers)

Okay… that was one moody episode of Battlestar Galactica. Fair warning. If you haven’t seen the first of the final 10 episodes, turn back now. There be major spoilers ahead.

So… wow.

I’m not quite sure what to say about that episode.

If the episode was designed to make us feel sort of aimless and disconcerted, mission accomplished. The scenes just kind of meandered. Lots of jumping from person to person, with mostly little bits . . . → Read More: The fifth Cylon – say what? (w/spoilers)

Battlestar blitz – be prepared

Battlestar Galactica is returning for the second half of its fourth and final season tonight (NOTE for those recording… the first new episode is extended and will go about 4 minutes over the hour). Just 10 episodes stand between us and the final fate of Humans and Cylons—even fewer than that before we find out the identity of the fifth Cylon. If you’ve forgotten what’s happened to this point (or for some crazy reason you’re . . . → Read More: Battlestar blitz – be prepared

Webisodes and commercials

To get us through the winter repeats, some shows are giving us webisodes. That includes Battlestar Galactica and Heroes.

In both cases, the short series are meant to provide a lead-in to the new episodes, now still a month away.

Heroes picks up during the final moments of the “Villains” finale and focuses on one of the recruits for the injection program:

Dark Knight takes it slow, plus Robot Chicken and Terminator

The Dark Knight

Christopher Nolan, director of The Dark Knight, has stated that he’s in no hurry to make the second sequel to Batman Begins. He has reason to be cautious. Historically speaking, the third installment in a franchise has been, shall we say, lacking. Superman III, Spiderman 3, Terminator 3, Batman Forever, Rocky III, Police Academy 3… need I go on? Nolan’s got the right idea:

More recent sci-fi updates

Well, my last sci-fi news post was a bit late, but all this news is at least recent-ish.

First off, two bits of Battlestar Galactica related stories:

The Sci-Fi channel has apparently officially given the green light to BSG spin-off “Caprica” with a 2010 kickoff.

The series, which will focus on the the Earthlike planet of Caprica as two rival families deal with, among other topical issues, the broader implications of their society’s emerging . . . → Read More: More recent sci-fi updates

A few things that are now probably old news for some of you have come across my reader. Sorry I didn’t get to pass them on earlier. I done been busy.
