I am ridiculously excited by the return of Battlestar Galactica tonight. I'm glad I did the rewatch because it reminded me how much I love this show, even when it stumbles on occasion. Oddly, now with only ten episodes left, SciFi is promoting the hell out of it. I've never read so many cast and crew interviews prior to a premiere before. I would recommend staying away from reviews of 'Sometimes a Great Notion'. I've read a few the past couple days at sources I trusted not to reveal anything major, but even the hints at what we'll be seeing tonight gave some things away. I was a bit disappointed since I was trying to be good and stay away from spoilage. On the other hand, I was spoiled months ago for at least one significant moment in the premiere and I'm sort of anxious to get tonight's episode out of the way because I really don't know much from here on out. Also, knowing what I do know, it allowed beccatoria and I to have some awesome email exchanges over the past few days as we speculated. :)
In other TV news, Friday Night Lights premieres tonight on NBC at 9:00est. For those that haven't had access to Season 3 yet, let me stress it's an AWESOME season on par with the glory of Season 1. Do check it out. I haven't watched the season finale yet, but I'm sure I won't be disappointed.
NBC had their day at the TCA Press Tour. The Good News: 30 Rock and The Office have been renewed for next season. The Bad News: No decision made on Chuck or Life. And The Possibly Good News Only To Me: Lipstick Jungle has not been canceled. Yes, it's my guilty pleasure show. :p
Finally, I suck at More Joy Day and contributed nothing. It's been a weird week culminating in me falling asleep at 8:30 last night. Most of the stuff I was toying with doing was Battlestar Galactica related so maybe I'll do Ten Weeks of BSG Joy as the series winds down. But don't hold me to anything!
