proggrrl: (BtVS - welcome from evilwillow)
Act One of Joss Whedon's DOCTOR HORRIBLE SING-ALONG BLOG went up this morning and is streaming free till Sunday. I see their iTunes page is also live, you can buy the entire show for $3.99 after Acts Two and Three get posted later this week.

You can submit questions to TV Squad to ask at the BSG panel at Comic-Con...but only till THIS THURSDAY...so hurry up!
proggrrl: (BSG-Starbuck warrior stance)
(Seriously how can you not love this guy?)

Q. Battlestar Galactica's Blonde Tomboy Space Girl (AKA Starbuck) is so clearly Wheadonian with her hot, hot fighting abilities and messianic visions... The BSG writers love you. When are you doing a cameo?

A. When Ron Moore stops admiring his shiny mane long enough to realize Starbuck could never love Lee as she would love pasty me.
proggrrl: (BSG - smoke em if you got em)
Under the cut are my thoughts and speculations related to the “Extended Ron Moore” cut of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: UNFINISHED BUSINESS (“UBEX” in fandom shorthand), the Ron Moore/Michael O'Halloran commentary track on UBEX, and the rest of the deleted scene materials included on the S3 DVDs.  Here there be spoilers, of course.


Thanks again, RDM & company. This DVD set is truefandom treasure.




proggrrl: (BSG-Razor Thrace the Harbinger)
I just finished watching the extended cut of Battlestar Galactica's UNFINISHED BUSINESS on the season 3 DVD.   *eyes glaze over with joy*

Firstly, gods I LOVE THIS SHOW.  So much.

And second, what a marvelous valentine this piece is to fans, to Apollo/Starbuck shippers...what a powerful testament to the potent art of editing.  I actually think the shorter broadcast version packs a bigger punch in terms of editing.  Yet this longer cut gave me just about EVERYTHING, and more, that I'd heard was shot and taken out of the final cut.  It was intense, sad, romantic, sexy, brutal, funny.  Just fantastic...especially the ending.

proggrrl: (BSG-harbinger of...BADASSERY!)
OK, after taking at least an hour to dig through 2 days worth of monumental S4 promo photo fangirl squee on the Scifi.com Battlestar Galactica forum, I've dug up a bunch of fun tidbits.  Someone I know from the forum left tales of her visit this past week with writers and VFX guys from the show.


I especially enjoyed finding out how much they love Katee Sackhoff (= AS MUCH AS WE DO)...and filming info...and who was really directing that EW photo shoot (I KNEW IT!)...
proggrrl: (BSG - K/L...Live inside you.)
This is definitely a FOR SHIPPERS ONLY post, so I will put it down under.



The rest of you lovelies - move along, nothin' to see here. *g*
proggrrl: (BSG is it April yet?)
What is it about this couple that gets to me, so far down and so deep?  Is it that the woman is a grown-up, a super-heroine, a world-class frak-up with a heart of gold, the best pilot in the 'verse, and utterly doomed?  Is it that the man - a hero himself, and a complex one at that - is so completely and utterly INTO HER that he cannot let go?  Is it knowing that it will be well-nigh impossible for them to just BE together?  Frisson over Happily Ever After? 

Hard to say.  All I know is - when I saw this BSG promo shot earlier, it all flooded back.  Something ran up my spine, straight into my Animal Brain.  And now, once again, I'm hooked.



proggrrl: (BSG S4 shippers' headache/last supper)
Good (Great) news: squeeing over new Battlestar Galactica promo photos...
Awesome.  Can we discuss BALTAR'S FRAKKING ROBE?!? lol


Bad news (though not a surprise to you on my flist): here's what I got when I tried to retreive my lost password on the skiffy forum today -
We're sorry but we don't have a username on file for you.  
Please click here http://www.scifi.com/members

What the frak do I do now???? This is especially odd since I've been logged in on both home and office for the last several weeks, even after the changeover, and it never gave me trouble. Can someone who IS LOGGED IN tell me if my membership even still exists? Can you check?
proggrrl: (BSG take the pilot out of the viper)
This is a very "shippery" post. About Battlestar Galactica.


PS - Ah ha!  RDM has finally confirmed once and for all: it's spelled FRAKKING, people.  Not fracking.  Yeah, petty, I know.
proggrrl: (Joining the darkside heh heh)
Oh what is a fangirl to do...Hulu just let me come inside their beta site...in the midst of the frakking writers strike...ie, I doubt anyone's getting residuals on this stuff...Yet if we fans flock to sites like Hulu, there'll be no way to DENY the profitability of online distribution...thereby strengthening the writers arguement...

*head explodes*


I give up. Below are two Hulu embeds for ya:

1. the Joss Whedon-directed episode of THE OFFICE from a few weeks ago, BRANCH WARS.

2. a BATTLESTAR ep from last season, one of my favorites: THE SON ALSO RISES. It introduces Master-of-The-Universe defense lawyer Romo Lamkin, and is saturated with a profound grief - as the characters mourn Starbuck's death - while the BSG cast and crew mourns what they assumed was Katee Sackhoff's termination. The Six interrogation scene still ranks as one of my all-time favorite BSG scenes. Key things to know: Lee Adama (forced to guard Romo) was in love with Starbuck. So was the guy who is drunk and standing on the viper. The ship's commander thought of her as a daughter. The blond chick in the prison cell is a cylon (robot). And Gauis Baltar, the dude who looks like Jesus? Well...1) He's in big trouble with the law, 2) the robot is in love with him.

What's a fangirl to do...when Content is queen?



proggrrl: (Firefly-Mal & Zoe)
Firstly: last night's BIONIC WOMAN - they watch BSG in Idaho! W00t! Best line is from Katee of course: "I think someone hacked me..."

Secondly: a follow-up to my shameless SERENITY collectors DVD pimping...apparently sales are hot and Alan Tudyk is saying there's talk of A SEQUEL straight-to-dvd? *jumps off chair*
proggrrl: (BW we'll have to fix that!)
Wednesday nights are going to burn holes in my DVR.  All the shows I watched this evening, including PRIVATE PRACTICE, deserve a bit more of my time.  A few of them are definitely going to drop off later in the season, just not sure yet which ones.  Next week PUSHING DAISIES starts up too, adding more to the frey.

proggrrl: (BW-corvus rain)
So?

Are we ready? Are we excited?

OK, I know many of you have seen the pilot already. I don't have the Unbox or the On Demand, and I don't enjoy watching my shows as crappy little computer files on the (low-res) computer screen - so I'm still a n00b.

And I am looking forward to it.

Meanwhile - don't forget Katee Sackhoff is on Cort and Fatboy tonight to celebrate the premiere.
<3 <3 <3
proggrrl: (walkin' on the beach)
I am happy to say that I am now just 2 days away from my week-long Maine vacation.  Me and the family are heading up to Islesford, a tiny island off of Mt. Desert Island.  Can. Not. Wait. 

But I'll miss you kids, natch.

Before leaving, I'm aiming to drop a few more posts, so the time has come for me to do my Fall TV Grid. 



PS - Must give a shoutout to the latest iconartist I've found during my LJ travels: [profile] ch_photoshopped .  Go check out her amazing animated GIFs, they are splendiforous...my walk on the beach icon is hers.  Cannot leave town without linking to this great new Katee Sackhoff scan - this one is from the latest SciFi Channel Magazine, apparently from RAZOR.  Thanks to dramaticgrl for scanning and [profile] canadiangirl_86  for sharing!  Oh Starbuck.  Sigh.  <3 <3 <3
proggrrl: (BW did a bad thing)
My friend dramaticalgrl on the Skiffy K/L thread left this beauty for us last night...(click for larger picture):


I got the new TV Guide in the mail today. Fall Preview issue with a Bionic Woman article.  They didn't talk to Katee, but here's a pic I scanned from the magazine.  The lead chick was on the opposite page but I didn't bother scanning that part.
Only a few weeks away now...*squee*
proggrrl: (Freaks&-dork)


A very creative fangirl made best use of her SMALLVILLE goody bag LOL! [via LA Times]


HOO BOY. Not only was I offline for the second half of Comic Con, and beyond busy at my office all last week - but then I even managed to get sick for a few more days. JEEZ.  Finally…without further delay…more fun things from Comic Con to share!

proggrrl: (BSG starbuck/roslin SQUEE)
Tiny squee for Katee Sackhoff and BIONIC WOMAN...KS and Michelle Ryan got a TV Guide cover!



[via BionicWebsite]
proggrrl: (BSG Starbuck revvitup)
I'm not sure I can take too much more of this, Ron D. Moore!


iF Magazine:  Are we going to get answers to Starbuck’s reappearance right off the bat or are they going to be meted out over the season?

RDM:
It’ll be teased along the way.


(from new interview posted here)

:: long, frustrated sigh ::
proggrrl: (Default)
Well, this is a very random post to say:

Big news for us WhedonHeads: Joss Whedon is auctioning off a dinner for five with him at Comicon, as a benefit for Equality Now. Very cool idea!

There's pretty bad news this week, albeit gossipy and not from the mouth of TPTB exactly, that those DEADWOOD TV movies may not happen.

And then there's proof of my suspicion from late last year: Katee Sackhoff is officially sick of playing Starbuck. I've been getting a vibe from both her and Jamie Bamber from the past year that they are both tired of their roles in BSG and itching to get on with their Acting Careers. I assume their managers and agents are squealing about film roles, TV movies, etc (and the higher commissions that come with those). Later on in life, these two actors are probably gonna realize the same thing that Sarah Michelle Gellar, Nathan Fillion, and, I believe, Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, and even Tricia Helfer seem to have better grips on...I don't think I need to explain any further. Le sigh.

Then again, they are both good actors when given the right roles. If they get the right roles. I suppose if it were me, even I would get bored with The Role Of A Lifetime, after several years.
proggrrl: (BSG K/L Home fence)
Hoo boy am I tired.  Stayed up way, way too late Wednesday night, reading this live-blogging of the BSG event in Los Angeles at the Cinerama Dome, by a bunch of fans on the skiffy forum.  People are still adding to that thread today, there are a few teeny weeny (whited out) spoilers on there.  LawFairy made this separate mildly spoilery thread to keep the spoiler virgins safe.  VirgoSunLeoMoon came back to the K/L shipper thread and reported back, starting on page 4447.

I'm going to just keep updating the following list of links as I get more:
- IESB has posted video interviews from the red carpet
- (THIS SPACE BEING HELD FOR KRISTIN AT E!'S LIVE FROM THE RED CARPET INTYERVIEWS...hope she used one of my questions!)
- Excellent IGN writeup (with our first glance at photos from inside the theater provided by SciFi)
- Nicely detailed, if a tad too snide, coverage by Moriarty and Hercules at Aint it Cool News
- More on the event from Pros: Kevin at TV Squad, Jace at Film.com...and Fans: dropdeadred, [personal profile] xwacky (Part 1, Part 2).  And even some Pro Fans: White Board Markers. Bootstrap Productions.
-[info]wisteria_ has some WireImage photos up
-[info]dryope just posted a ton more photos.
- IESB has a massive stack of pix up.  (Everyone looks awesome in the pictures, natch.)







Many thanks to my friends in fandom for all the info last night and this morning! Fandom rules!


I'm sure there will be more to say later in the week, updates to follow.  I may be able to get   Tee hee now I've got my hands on a (very low fi) audio recording of the entire panel.  Here's where I've posted the 3 MP3's for DL.


Everyone I spoke to said that NBC/SciFi most definitely had cameras there...why not drop them a line asking them to let us have all the footage for fandom please? Like, now (send to feedback@scifi.com & battlestar@scifi.com).  Raw footage is fine, oh great PTB - we'll handle the editing.  *G*
