Speaking of Season 4.0, I managed to get the Best Buy Exclusive Edition. I was there when the doors opened at 10:00am. Yes, I went in late to work in order to purchase DVDs. When I walked in and went to the BSG section they only had one copy on display. The gentleman who got to the section the same time as I did was kindly going to let me have the exclusive set while he settled for the other. I said, "No, they are supposed to have a minimum of eight in the store." So, I grabbed a saleswoman and I followed her and the guy followed me and we tried to track down where the other copies were as I repeated to her they were supposed to have at least eight copies. She looked the information up on the computer and found they were supposed to have thirteen copies. It took her asking two other employees where they were before it was determined they were in their 'exclusives section'. That section turned out to be at the back of the store by appliances. O_o Anyway, the guy trailing me around thanked me for my help. :)
Btw, if you go here at the Best Buy website they have two deleted scenes available for download (yes, download, color me shocked) apparently not included on the DVDs (sadly, not shocked).
Zap2It has a Q&A posted about various shows including BSG. Ron and David did a conference call this afternoon and one non-spoilery bit about the finale was confirmed:
Seems the tenth and final episode does actually stretches three hours. Sci Fi hasn't yet decided if they will chop it up into two installments for its original airing, but Moore and Eick said there are plans to air it in its entirety at least once.
Also, today, I picked up a couple packages from my apartment complex office including a Christmas gift. Part of the gift was 'The Making of Horatio Hornblower', which is awesome on it's own, but when I opened the book to flip through it the page it opened to was Jamie's. People, the book knew!
In news not related in any way to Jamie Bamber, this weekend, after living in Michigan my entire life, I finally visited The Henry Ford Museum with a group of friends. zarniwhooper had been planning the trip since early November and, due to a series of circumstances, the trip kept getting postponed. Our mission was to see the costume exhibit that ran through the middle of this month. After the build up I think we all concluded the exhibit was rather 'eh'. There were a few interesting pieces, my favorite was Luke's severed hand from The Empire Strikes Back, but many pieces were not originals, such as Indy's jacket from Last Crusade, and a couple of pieces I suspected were worn at Dragon Con. ;p But the museum was far more interesting that I thought it would be so I consider the trip worth it. Plus, there was a lot of fandom discussion in the car which is always nice. :)
Unfortunately, I've been battling some strange rash since returning home Saturday night. It's not hives and it's pretty much located on my stomach and one arm. I didn't eat anything I hadn't eaten before and I have no cuts or scratches. Unfortunately, I can only take Benadryl before I go to bed because it knocks me out so whatever it is is not healing as fast as I hoped it would.
Some TV shows are starting back up. I recorded Scrubs for later viewing and watched The Mentalist because The Pretty will always win out in live viewing. I felt tonight's episode actually made some sense. And I liked the team pulling together like it did.
And then there was 'Leverage: The Stork Job'>. My favorite moment may have been when Elliot was told his hair was too long. :) I also wondered if Dean Devlin was making a dig at the SciFi Saturday Movie. A film about NATO soldiers being killed by werewolves shot in an eastern European country with no budget has to be a SciFi film! To bad they couldn't get Michael Shanks to do a cameo.
I'm still not a Parker fan, but she was less annoying in this episode She was shown as being capable of taking something seriously. And they did a nice job of tying her motivations to help the children with her backstory. We also learned a little more about Hardison and that he, too, grew up in foster care, but had the good fortune of being placed with a woman who genuinely cared about him. It also appears that Hardison has a little crush Parker.
It occurred to me that while TNT is known as the Law & Order network, Tuesdays could be known as Christian Kane/David Boreanaz day. There's Angel from 6am to 8am, Bones at 6pm and 11pm, and Leverage at 10pm. Not that I'm complaining. ;)
