Battlestar Galactica – The Final Episodes Premiere (SPOILERS)

Like the title of the post says, there will be spoilers below.

Just wanted to post something quick about this night’s latest BSG episode.  There’s all this controversy surrounding the 5th Cylon model that was going to be revealed, and the ad campaign for Season 4.5 has been about how they were going to answer our questions little by little.  Well, they’ve answered one of them.  Apparently, the secret model is Ellen Tigh, Colonel Saul Tigh’s wife that died on New Caprica.

Also, we’ve had to say goodbye to another member of the BSG cast: Lt. Anastatia Dualla (Kandyse McClure).  I’m not going to give away how she dies, so watch for yourself.  She was always one of my favorite secondary characters, and I’m a little upset (OK , shocked) that she won’t make it to the end.

And, just like every good BSG episode, for every question answered, there’s a new question waiting to be answered:

1. The theory now is that the 13th tribe were actually the skinjob Cylons, and their planet, Earth, was nuked by different model Cylons similar to the Centurions.  How in the frak did this 13th tribe end up being Cylons, and why did Earth get nuked?

2. Starbuck.  She found the source of the Colonial signal on Earth, and it happens to be her ship, with what appears to be her dead body inside.  So, is the Kara Thrace that returned from the dead in the beginning of Season 4 the real Starbuck?  If not, who is she?  If so, who is the dead pilot on Earth?

3. Where does the opera house come into play?  What about the hybrid babies (Hera Agathon and Nicky Tyrol)?

4. How in the hell is this season going to end?  As of now, I don’t see a bright, happy ending for any of the characters.  Not that I want every single character to get some happy ending (that would be a cop-out for the BSG creative team), but I do want some of the characters to leave the show with a smile.

Watchmen Will Finally Be Watched

REJOICE!
clipped from movies.yahoo.com

It’s gonna cost a pretty penny, but Warner Bros. gets to send Watchmen into theaters as scheduled.
Warners and 20th Century Fox are expected to let a judge know tomorrow that they have reached a settlement and will not need to go to trial to figure out which studio owns the rights to the highly anticipated superhero adventure.
according to the Hollywood Reporter, Fox is relinquishing all distribution rights for a lump-sum payment and then a percentage of Watchmen’s box-office receipts.
After inking a couple of deals with Fox in the 1990s, producer Larry Gordon ultimately took the DC Comics-rooted story to Warners, which went ahead and made what trailers are teasing to be a pretty fanboyrific movie for about $130 million.
Fox sued the rival studio last February, alleging copyright violations because Gordon didn’t secure permission from Fox to shop the project elsewhere—a theory that Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Gary Feess more or less agreed with.
