As fans of Battlestar Galactica will recall, every episode began with a short synopsis: “The Cylons were created by man. The rebelled. They evolved. There are many copies. And they have a plan.” But... did they? Or was that just a big tease? Turns out it’s the latter, and now we know why: because an executive producer…
Part of world-building is language. If you’re creating an entirely new alien species, you’re generally also going to have to create an entirely new language for them. And what good is a language without a bit of profanity? Not much.
Richard Hatch, who managed to star in two Battlestar Galacticas, has passed away. He was 71.
Every so often, a TV show likes to go outside its usual comfort zone and do something different... something weird. It abandons its usual format to try something else, suddenly becoming a musical, a comedy, a documentary, a Western, anything. If an episode manages to pull it off, it usually ends up becoming a…
Most of us know Battlestar Galactica as a TV show, whether that be from the 1970s or the 2000s. But Hollywood has continually tried to take the well-known franchise for themselves and now, the latest potential movie adaptation just got a screenwriter and maybe even a director.
Over the past few years, Dynamite Comics has been released several miniseries based on both the classic and reimagined versions of Battlestar Galactica—but now they’re trying again with an entirely new series set in the timeline of the original TV show.
We all know people don’t explode when exposed to space without protection. But science fiction has taken some ... liberties with vacuum exposure over the years. Here are 19 scenes of people being exposed to space, ranked from the least realistic to the most.
Visual effects artist Gary Hutzel, most famous for his work on Star Trek: The Next Generation and Battlestar Galactica, passed away on Thursday at the age of 60.
Battlestar Galactica is a beloved space opera franchise, but many people are only slightly familiar with its premise, beyond killer robots and spaceships. That combination of name recognition and an empty page makes it perfect for Hollywood development. So it’s unsurprising that producers are trying to make a BSG…
Winter Storm Jonas pretty much has the East Coast stuck inside this weekend, which means that you’re probably sitting in front of your television scrolling through Netflix. Allow us to help.
The whole point of a post-apocalyptic story is that someone survives. But when you have a calamity that wipes out 99.9 percent of all humans, then how exactly do you explain the survivors? In honor of the new Maze Runner movie, here are the 14 dumbest ways people survive the apocalypse.
The X-Files, Heroes and Twin Peaks are all coming back to our screens soon, with at least some of the original castmembers returning. Sounds great—except that this sort of thing doesn’t always work out. Here are the most ignominious examples of classic TV shows that were reanimated...but they came back wrong.
The human race is doomed. That’s what I take away from the final episode of Falling Skies, in which the human race is saved in such a slapdash and unconvincing manner, you sense that everyone concerned felt as though humanity actually deserves to perish. God, this show. What the hell happened?
Even just a few years ago, it seemed like science fiction was an endangered species on television. But now, there’s a new wave of smart, ambitious science fiction coming to the small screen. And meanwhile, a lot of original SF has flopped at the movies.
Do you know how long we’ve been craving new space action on television? Gorram years. That’s how long. And tonight, Syfy is premiering a brand new show called Killjoys, about space bounty hunters. We’ve seen a couple episodes, and we’re here to tell you it’s a blast.
Science fiction is filled with kids in space. This makes sense; if the future has us in space, children will be there, too. But if there are children in a spaceship, a number of things can go very wrong, both for the characters and the audience.
Okay, it's ending may have caused a lot of anger, but on the whole the Battlestar Galactica reboot was pretty great. Its redesign for the Cylons was great, too — but nothing beats the retro-tastic original Cylon design. All the more better then that it's the Classic Battlestar Galactica getting the Funko treatment!
Ascension looked like a return to Syfy's glory days of Battlestar Galactica-style dark space opera. But thanks to some ill-conceived twists, it ended up feeling kind of pointless, instead. And now, Syfy has confirmed that Ascension will never return.
10 years ago this week, the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica television show launched in North America. To celebrate, Iain Heath (Ochre Jelly) has rebooted his wonderful collection of BSG builds. The Cylon Centurion is the coolest I have ever seen in Lego form.
Science fiction looks to the future, but its past is also full of riches and wonders. There are so many movies, books, TV shows, games and comics to love.
