Battlestar Delayedica?

For those of you already stocking up on popcorn and beverages for this friday's 90 minute season two finale of "Battlestar Galactica", which we've already done a thorough job spoiling right here, this might not be the news you'd like to hear. For reasons that that still are a bit murky the show will break ranks with the two "Stargates" and the tripple Sci-Fi Channel whammy on Friday nights.

Production on the third season will commence in April in Vancouver, Canada. But the word is that it will not begin airing until October, four months behind the usual schedule.

There are mutterings that one reason could be that parent network NBC is considering lifting the critically acclaimed show from the smaller niche channel to NBC proper, as there's a dearth of promising new shows in the pipeline, according to SyFy Portal.


I've yet to get into the show *looks at the DVDs he has yet to watch, but soon...*, but that is definitely a bummer. Bigger exposure would be good, if it took off, and it would reach a wider audience, one would hope, but...

Is anyone really going to jump into a 'new' NBC show, starting its third season?

The Mystery Continues

MST3K volume 9 has been announced, with a prospective release date of May 16th.

Contents to include -
104 - Women of the Prehistoric Planet
207 - Wild Rebels
613 - The Sinister Urge
812 - The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living And Became Mixed-Up Zombies

I've always thought #812 was one of the greatest movie titles ever, in that laughably silly way.

DragonCon ponderings

coffeebadass is exempt from this.

DragonCon folks...reccomend the Hyatt or the Marriott?

The Marriott website is being finicky and just not talking in the codes provided to get a room, and I hate dealing with the phone, while the Hyatt site is playing very nicely with me. One person says go for the Marriott, but I'm not terribly inclined to go through the trouble, especially since I have a sneaking suspision that rooms may already be gone.

Is Marriott worth the effort, or should I go the easy road?
