FAN FILM FRIDAY: "Star Wars Vs. Battlestar Galactica"

Republibot 3.0's picture

I generally don't post these "Spacebattles.com" kinds of things. They're just too easy, there's no end of them, and after a point they begin to drag you down, you know? It's not that they suck, its just that there's a crushing sameness to them. It's always well known franchises duking it out, stuff blows up purty, neither side wins, what's the point?

RETROSPECULATIVE TV: Battlestar Galactica: “The Young Lords” (Episode 9, or possibly 11)

Republibot 3.0's picture

“The Young Lords” is always a bit of a surprise to me. You hear a lot of people yammer on about how stupid The Original Galactica (“TOG”) was with the disco haircuts and the Egyptian stuff and the weird costuming and how gay it all was and blah blah blah blah blah, and yet you very seldom hear any of these people say anything about specific episodes.

It's a slow news day here.

Consequently, I've decided to run this Video Blog ("Vlog," a word even uglier than "Blog," though I hadn't thought it possible in English) from Natalie Tran, talking about, well, typical neurotic Natalie Tran stuff.

FAN FILM FRIDAY: "Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming" (1999)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Some months ago, we did an entry about "The Battlestar Galactica You Never Got To see," an attempted revival by Richard Hatch. Here's the old entry http://www.republibot.com/content/%E2%80%9C-galactica-you-didn%E2%80%99t... Now, this trailer is amazingly hard to come by. Our own Republibot 2.0 actually helped work on the project back in the day, and even he never got to see a copy of it, so, honestly, it's rare as hen's teeth. When we did that earlier story, we had to content ourselves with a crappy video camera copy of the trailer, in which it was mostly impossible to make out what was going on. "Pat" over at the United Worlds forum, however, has uncovered an actual decent copy, however, and I felt this was post-worthy. Just click on through to see what might have been, but probably couldn't.

MONDAY MORNING QUARTERBACK: Galactica 3.0

Republibot 3.0's picture

Pretty much since the day the new Galactica ended (Badly) rumors have been spreading around about how the original series creator, Glenn Larson, is trying to do a theatrical Galactica film that’s unrelated to the re-imagined series. Initially, these rumors were a tiny bit unclear as to whether he was going to try to continue the Original 1978/’79 series story, or if this was going to be a completely new story, revisiting the original premise with the hindsight of 30 years.

“The Galactica You Didn’t Get To See!”

Republibot 3.0's picture

In the lean years between Battlestar Galactica and Battlestar Galactica, Richard Hatch (Not the gay one, the other one) attempted a revival attempt of the original show on his own. The idea was that it was 30 years later, Apollo was now commander, and the fleet hadn’t seen any Cylons since “The Hand of God.” Suddenly, they turn up again. The project was called “Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming.” To promote it, he shot a five-minute trailer at Dragon Con in Atlanta, involving many of the original actors, and spiffy (for the time) new effects.

Republibot 3.0:
Ok, let’s strike while the iron is still relatively hot here. Who here saw the finale? I did. Who else?

Charlie:
I saw it Saturday morning on DVR.

Deadpan:
I saw it, too.

Republibot 2.0
I saw the last 2/3rds. Or Part II, or whatever it was.

EPISODE REVIEWS: Battlestar Galactica: "Daybreak, Part 2" (Season 4, episode 20) Series Finale

Republibot 3.0's picture

…and so it ends. It doesn’t all make sense, and it goes off the rails more than once, but it is definitely over, and it was pretty good. Well, good-ish. At points. And while this is clearly, clearly not the ending anyone foresaw six years ago when the series began, or thirty-one years ago when the original series began, well, at least it is a conclusive ending. At least it’s done.

Wow!

You know, it's easy to forgive massive missteps like last week when they completely knock it out of the park like they did tonight! Seriously.
