Because I Care Dammit

How many more days until the Sci-Fi Friday premieres? 11? :)

Sci-Fi seems to be doing all they can to publicize their shows (and why couldn't we have done this with 'Farscape'?). Since the Gateworld site can be a spoiler minefield, here are the direct links to some stuff you may all be interested in....

Stargate SG-1 Season 9 Cast Photos which are only spoilery if you've been living under a rock and unaware of who's coming and going.

TV Guide's Sci-Fi Friday Cover Extraveganza. There are a few minor Stargate and Atlantis spoilers. but nothing about the upcoming season of BSG. The page has three of the four covers up (the forth is Ben, Tricia, and the Captain (?) from Atlantis). Sadly, no Jamie. :(

I was unaware that the Season 1 soundtrack of Galactica was out. I may have to get a copy which Best Buy apparently has along with the the Spike DVD exclusive which I'm still on the fence about. 'School Hard', 'Lover's Walk' and 'Fool For Love' I get, but how is 'Lie to Me' a Spike ep?

My view on Lie to Me being added in? It was the first time Buffy saw Drusilla, it was the first time they had some "plan" to get Buffy, and ... Jason Behr is in it. HA!
Thanks for the links:

two questions:

Why is Ben pictured twice, once with lasses once without? Is he a clone on Stargate?

On the Battlestar Galatica CD is the song at the end of Hand of God there? the one played during the celebratiuon.

Oh, Michael Shanks look alike jokes. Those just NEVER get old.

I would hope it's on there, but I can't be certain from the track listing. It does make reference to music from the attack on the Cylon base which woul dbe right before the victory celebration.
Boy oh boy oh boy! I'd never realised how similar they were! I had to look twice and only worked out what it was when I'd decided that Ben was definately Ben and Michael Michael.

D'oh.
Of course, it does feature the fab line: "I've known you for two minutes, and I can't stand you. I don't really feature you livin' forever.

But yeah... I can think of way Spikier eps.
Even 'Something Blue' or 'The Initiative' would have been better selections. I've always thought of LtM as a Buffy ep.
Lie to me is considered a Spike episode? Huh, how bizarre. They would've been better off picking an episode from S6 or S7. The last scene in Beneath You actually made me cry.
'Beneath You' would have seemed a good choice and, though not one of my top ten, 'Lies My Parents Told Me' which could have tied in with FFL. Oh! Or 'Intervention'. That ep said a lot for his character.
No Starbuck and Apollo on the covers? Boo. But it's nice to see Browder on there.

Ten days! Ten days! Eeeeeee!

"Lie to Me" is indeed an interesting choice. They were probably looking for episodes that didn't need too much context, which puts most of S6 and S7 right out. It does have some great Spike moments in it, but he's a pretty peripheral figure.
I'll be curious to see which cover my Mom gets with her subscription. I need at least one with Ben if I can't have Jamie. ;)

I agree that S6 and S7 relied more on an overall arc as well as viewers being familiar with the characters history. 'Beneath You' may have been a good choice, but newbies would have been scratching their heads over split personality Spike. Then again, who's buying these discs other than the fans? I would have prefered seeing 'Intervention' included.
Huh? "Lie to Me" is a Spike ep.? It's totally a Buffy episode. If they're speaking about lies, how about "Lies My Parents Told Me"?

Thanks for the heads up on the premiere's. Looking forward to new BSG.
I may be suceeding in getting Crystal hooked on BSG. She called me tonight just to tell me she has a favorite ep with half a season to go!
Ha!....Pusher!

We got the TV Guide with Ben and the other two. LOL I still have to read the spoilers for BSG...spoiler whore that I am. ;)
But why get the DVD anyway? You already have all four eps on DVD. Is there new commentary? Pix of Spike nekkid?
But why get the DVD anyway?

Because I'm obsessive about things and like to waste money. ;p
Aargh, I still haven't gotten around to watching BSG. I've been meaning to, honest. I just need all summer to catch up on these things, a July start date is completely unreasonable. You didn't steer me wrong with House so I'm going to permanently defer to you in my TV watching schedule. Just no reality shows, please!

OK, I suddenly feel like Monica in that ep of 'Friends' when Rachel hands over all her decision making to her. Wisse move. ;) You must get caught up on BSG. I'm just starting to reel Crystal in. :)
