Interesting BSG Podcasting News

I was just perusing the Sci-Fi board and came across a thread started by Terry Moore. Late last night she asked for fan questions for a potential Q&A podcast with the actors. She and Ron were going out to dinner with some of the cast and had the thought of asking them to their house afterwards for an impromptu Q&A session. It seems that not only did the Q&A take place, but some of the actors will be utilized in the podcast for the next ep! Here are Terry’s comments:

2am, they just left. i think this is going to be a really, really awesome podcast. They got such a flow and rhythm going, that the best way for me to facilitate your questions, was to scroll through all of the questions as they talked, and find the questions that would lead their discussion forward. So some of the more fun questions didn't get on because their discussion got very deep and serious.
Anyway, thanks everyone.
They are going to reconvene here tomorrow night to do a podcast with the next episode.


A reason to look forward to the podcast! I’m now curious to know what actors will be commenting. It would great if it were Jamie and Katee, but Jamie has family obligations and I’m not sure Katee is in Vancouver right now.

ETA: indigo419 was brave enough to scroll through the thread - Jamie, James, and Tahmoh are confirmed to have participated. And apparently Katee was not in Vancouver as suspected.

Thanks for highlighting this! Damn, I'm bummed I didn't check Skiffy last night. Oh well. It should be an awesome podcast! I'm only sorry Katee won't be there (especially if it is "Unfinished Business" that they're commenting on).

Oh, and here's who was invited to dinner:

So far it's James Callis, Jamie Bamber (just for you, Fanny), Ta[h]moh and Mark Sheppard, who is doing a guest shot on a epidode not aired yet.
Waiting to hear from Grace and Mary.
We just called everyone at 7, so it's really last minute and that's who can make it so far.

I can only generally brave the board about once a day, if that. And I've gotten to the point where I seldom click on topics because most either involve trolls trying to start trouble or people arguing or people acting like they are twelve. I really wish the people involved with the show go beyond the board to reach out to fans.

And Badger! He's going to be on 'Medium' this week. He's a good actor, now I'm curious to know what role he will be playing. I think they could be working on the season finale by now.
Re: [possible tiny casting spoiler, though I have no idea who that person is]
Oh, god. Really? UGH. Seems like he's in everything these days, and I'm really freakin' sick of him. Why the hell couldn't they have gotten someone else? Seeing him in BSG is going to suck me right out of the story, because he's one of those actors who's so damn omnipresent that it becomes a distraction.

(The above was Alanna's one daily dose of negativity. Don't worry, it'll go away soon... as will I, since the kids will be back up here in 10 minutes. Oops.)
Re: [possible tiny casting spoiler, though I have no idea who that person is]
I only check the site *maybe* once a day so I probably would have missed it. It was very short notice and it sounds as is if not many questions got asked that she just used them if she saw a lull coming in the discussion. It sould be interesting though to hear the actors thoughts for a change.

Doing a quick scrolling through the thread it seems Terry's patience is even getting tried by some board members. I wonder how long she'll continue doing this?

I know Mark Sheppard from a few things. He's a good actor. I wonder what his role will be?

personally i think she's a saint! joe mallozzi of stargate fame springs to mind, and he bailed after a year or so of putting up with ppl bitching at him and being downright rude. fans can be awfully stupid sometimes.
Re: [possible tiny casting spoiler, though I have no idea who that person is]
I think she chooses to focus on the sane individuals there who genuinely look forward to the show and wish for it's continued success. But there is so much negativity on the board right now and I just don't know if she would want to continue dealing with that.
sounds fantastic! i was hoping they would get the actors to do at least some of these podcasts as well. :)

[shallow] and yayz for james and jamie! i heart them and their little british accents. [/shallow]
Ooh, I'm so excited! That'll be great. So this is the podcast for Unfinished Business, right? Or for Hero?

Btw, I hope you don't mind I've friended you (we watch alot of the same shows and you always have interesting things to say).
I think 'Unfinished Business' unless she meant next week ep, but Ron usually does the podcasts close to the airdate.

Don't mind at all. I know we've exchanged thoughts in the past. :)
So so awesome!

Now where the hell is the Hero podcast? :)
