Slice of Trivia: Kurt in St. George brings in a cybernetic theme to this week’s three trivia movie clips.
TV Talk: We have exciting news about SF television and believe it or not, it comes from Fox. The network infamous for killing sci-fi programming before it ever gets a chance to build an audience will be doing something right with J.J. Abrams’ “Fringe” and Joss Whedon’s “Dollhouse” for the 2008-2009 season. Fox will present the shows with far fewer commercials and interruptions with an idea they call “Remote Free TV.”
Interview: “Battlestar Galactica” supervising producers Bradley Thompson and David Weddle return to Slice and talk as much as they can without spoilers about the rest of Galactica’s fourth and final season.
Special Segment: J.C. Hutchins and Scott Sigler hilariously lose it big-time over Parsec Award nominations.

Does anyone know if they’ll do a marathon of Battlestar season 4 right before the finale? it seems likely. Anyone know when the last episode might air so we know how long to wait for this possible finale? My roommate and I have always wanted to watch battlestar but never knew anyone who wanted to sit and watch the DVD’s with us. When he moved in we talked about it and went for it just as season 4 began. Now we are caught up (all season and RAZOR disks in 3 weeks!!)and are now firmly addicted. We don’t know how to catch up to season four. we really dont want to crowd together around a laptop or PC and don’t want to wait until season four is on DVD. any advice anyone? thanks!!!
@Maria — According to the schedulebot, it doesn’t look like it’ll happen anytime in the next couple of months. SciFi is pretty good about repeating their original shows, but sometimes they end up doing so in the middle of the night. They also tend to run marathons during the day on weekdays and over long holiday weekends. (For example, they played all monster movies all the time this past weekend because of Memorial Day.)
If you have a DVR, the easiest thing would probably to set it up to record the series and watch them in order as they come back around.
SciFi hasn’t said yet when the second half of the season will start, but I can pretty much guarantee that they’ll have a first-half marathon sometime during the week leading up to it.
Hope all this rambling is helpful. Congratulations on your shiny new fandom.
This entire interview is about how “we don’t want to know the ending”.
How about some story-based questions?
Sorry dude – our hands along with Thompson and Weddle’s, hands were tied by SCI FI on what kinds of questions we could ask to ensure no spoilers about the closing episodes of BSG occurred.
