Five More Days

For the three people who don't know, Katee Sackhoff, at a post episode Q&A Friday night, spoiled the finale. I don't know what she was thinking. My Friends list has been pretty darn good about keeping whatever she said to themselves and those interested in discussing the spoilage. I'm trying my damnedest to stay unspoiled until Friday. Though, I will admit I do know one thing about the finale, but that was something I found out last summer.

Speaking of BSG, Entertainment Weekly posted a history of Battlestar from the original series, through Bryan Singer's reimagining, to Ron Moore's. Geektyrant.com reposted EW's article so you don't have to click through a dozen screens to read it all.

So, I think most of you are aware of my fascination with Narcho. Well, his portrayer, Sebastian Spence, has been working on a half hour comedy, Sophie, the past couple years up in Canada. ABC Family has bought the U.S. rights and it will air next Monday, March 23rd, at 9:30pm est. If it's any good it will give me something to watch while I'm waiting to acquire that show featuring that actor I kind of like. ;)

'Castle' already has a DVD release date, September 22nd. Well, at least ABC waited to announce the news until after the premiere. :p

You know, just when I think my opinion of George Lucas can't get any lower, I discover it can. How George Lucas Almost Made Indiana Jones a Sex Offender. If you think the title of the article is misleading, it's not. A transcript of a conference between George, Steven Spielberg, and Lawrence Kasdan is available for download and Cinematical felt compelled to bring one part of their hashing out of ideas to light. I'm at a loss as to what the hell runs through this mans mind.

I watched Kings this evening. It's an ambitious project, perhaps too ambitious. I felt I was watching four different stories at once. Is it a parable? A commentary on modern America? A political thriller? A Shakespearean tragedy? The actors were good. Eammon Walker, who I really liked on Oz, was a standout for me. Ian McShane could take it down a notch. But, for the most part, the characters left me cold. And, the king's condemnation of his son's homosexuality rubbed me the wrong way. Couldn't Jack be a bitter disappointment to him for other reasons? Or is this meant to show his hypocricy? He makes his son feel ashamed for liking men, yet he's running off to be with his mistress and other family. It's certainly not a bad show, but I don't see myself caring about it.

Yes, that Katee thing has been linked all over the place, but at least it's been nicely under an LJ cut. Still, it makes me scared I'm going to run into the info accidentally - now that it's out there! Stupid Katee.

Thanks for posting the Geektyrant link - I gave up on the EW "article".

Yes, George Lucas seems to have been a completely idiot from day one. Urgh.

Kings is a retelling of the story of King David and I believe the allusion to his son's close male companionship is in the Bible - so I guess that's how it translates to the modern world? I am intrigued by it, since everyone has been so surprised by its ambitions.

for one who would love to be spoiled (really, i would love to be spoiled) could you (or somebody) to point me towards some direction so i can spoil myself? :)
How George Lucas Almost Made Indiana Jones a Sex Offender.

WTF! I feel ill. :(
I know! I debated sharing, but I thought people should know just how f***ed up the man is. :(
George Lucas increasingly seems to resemble a cut-throat 18th century merchant; I keep expecting to hear him say that he's declared the word "star" to be his copyright and has just bought his 11 year old cousin to be his new child bride.

I'm not looking at the Castle DVD release in case it says "see the episodes you didn't see on air after the cancellation!" Cynical? Moi?
George's inability to maintain a relationship is starting to make more sense.

I'm not worried about Castle's chances of airing all episodes...yet. To my knowledge, the show wrapped production months ago and was originally supposed to air in early winter so having the DVD release ready to go isn't shocking. It should be interesting to see the ratings for the second outing.
Stupid Katee, stupid me - I've accidentally clicked one of the cuts and read her answer to a question that was really important to me, meh. I'm now trying to deny everything, forget about it and convince myself that she was playing with the fans (I know that's a false hope, but shhh! ;)))
I suspect I know, to an extent, what her spoilage involves, but don't tell me! ;) I'm just shocked she gave away major spoilage with the finale just a week (at that time) away. Fortunately, my Flist marked their entries well enough that I knew she was more than teasing a plot point.
Those George Lucas quotes are seriously freaky, I didn't know he was such a nutter!
Especially this "It would be amusing to make her slightly young at the time" Twelve is only slightly young for a sexual relationship with a twenty five year old man, seriously? And then they wanted to make it look like it was her fault, because she was coming on to him! These peple *sigh*

Yeah, I imagine the Katee spoilage is quite annoying for a lot of people, those who attended the event didn't even have the chance to avoid them! Personally I'm quite glad to be forewarned.
I started losing respect for George when he changed SW so Greedo shot first. I lost respect for him when the prequels came out. But I can honestly say I never viewed him as sick and twisted until now. What made the discussion worse was the idea of Marion coming on to him. Isn't that one of the arguments pedophiles use? ::shudders::

Ohhh, thank goodness I didn't hear about any BSG spoilers. I don't want to know. I really liked the Kings premiere. I didn't know that Eammon Walker was working on this so that is/was a nice surprise for me. I'll stick with it. It actually works out good for me because there's nothing else in that time slot that I like.
I didn't know Eammon was in Kings either. Actually, when I saw him, my first thought was, "Said!" :) I may include Kings on my list of shows to watch on Hulu when I have time, but I just didn't feel compelled to make it must see viewing.
Ick. I so didn't want to know that about Lucas. Ick. I need to go wash my brain.

Thank you for telling me it's a major spoiler. I was tempted to click just because I thought it was a small tidbit and not something big. I think I can wait a few more days to know all.
::passes you the bleach::

I had unspoiled people on my Flist who seemed upset they had read transcripts of Katee's Q&A which led me to believe whatever she said was a big spoiler. I assume they read the transcripts because they assumed that, at this late stage, the cast would not give anything away. I certainly don't mind stuff being hinted at, as Jamie did recently and we found out he was only referring to flashbacks, but it seems she gave away a plot point and that I do not want to know.

OH GEORGE LUCAS NO.


For the three people who don't know, Katee Sackhoff, at a post episode Q&A Friday night, spoiled the finale.


Whoops! Well, that explains the spoiler discussions that have popped up on my flist, thankfully all behind cuts.
OH GEORGE LUCAS NO

You know, it's a bit disconcerting that, in the past year or so since the original 'oh John Ringo no!' review, John Ringo is starting to look fairly sane in comparison to some other people who have drawn a 'OH $CRAZYPERSON NO' response. At least JR acknowledges his issues...!
Stupid Katee - I'm glad I haven't seen anything on it. I really want to be surprised at the ending.

George Lucas' skeevy ideas are even worse when you realize that Raiders was supposed to be a PG family adventure film. I'm through trying to figure him out.

I hope we see more of Castle, Nathan is really charming in it.

As for Kings, I think the best thing it has going for it is that it's not a police procedural or a medical show ;) It's different enough for me to want to at least check it out to see where it's going. I felt the same about Ian McShane at the beginning of Deadwood, but he did dial it down and was terrific. I think he will here too. Next week Brian Cox is in the episode, and judging by their interaction in Deadwood, it should be pretty good :)
I'm generally against studio interference, but had George decided to go ahead with his brilliant idea, I'm sure Paramount would have stepped in to protect their investment. It was skeevy enough that Indy was sleeping with a teenager.

I'll probably continue to check out 'Kings' on Hulu. I need something to distract me at work. ;)
I'm one of those three people. And now that the finale is almost upon us, I'm content to wait, relatively spoiler-free! Probably, until Thursday....
I saw a magazine ad for Sophie but didn't know Sebastian Spence was in it! I guess I'll check it out. :)
I was considering acquiring some episodes, then I saw the commercial the other day and thought "Woo!" :) I've only watched him on BSG and some crappy made for TV movies so seeing him in a comedy should be interesting.
