Even though we’re approaching the final few episodes of the final season of Battlestar Galactica (you have no idea how difficult it is for me to type that!) there is a glimmer of hope for fans of the series. A prequel to BSG is on its way, titled “Caprica” and set on the planet of the same name.Okay, okay… real fans already knew this.
Better than this is the fact that it’s not some fan-boy rumour of a possible, far off development dream, but something that’s happening very, very soon. In fact, the pilot to the series will be availble on DVD in April of this year! Reactions to the pilot will impact the filming of the remainder of ‘Caprica’, set to launch next year.
So all is not lost. There will be plenty more frackin’ cylons in this fan-boy’s future… Erm… you know what I mean. As for season 4 – what the hell is going to happen tonight? Are Adama and Tigh going to go out in a blaze of glory? Will Roslin and the “friendly” Cylons rain down upon the rebels with furious anger etc etc? And most importantly, will Felix Gaeta finally get what’s coming to him?
