Cylons and Hotties and Writers… Oh My!

He continues "Basically I think we're done and that's the hardest thing. As far as my character is concerned about doing anything in this fourth season... All I can tell you is what I've said from the very beginning. I said it from the start. 'Don't watch this program.' It is not an easy ride. I've got to tell you, it is depression upon depression." He then says someone I can't make out about someone getting killed and then finding out by reading it in the script. Then he talks about how he kids with the writers about some people who are dying and don't know and what to tell them." At the end of the day it is the story. You get your paycheck, you did your thing. But it hurts. And this fourth season really hurts. There's not too many of us left, and if we're lucky, none of us will make it." Then Mary McDonnell chimes in, "And apparently you haven't gotten laid." Nice. Aaron Douglas puts on his best announcer voice and says, "Friday nights at 9. The show where everyone dies!"

Then someone asks when the second half of the 4th season will air. Lots of staring at Mark Stern, who doesn't really have an answer. Could be fall. Could be in early 2009. Sigh. It is going to be a long wait until next winter.

The shy girl next to me gets up and asks Katee when we'll find out why/how she came back from the dead. Silence. Then some uncomfortable chuckles and then Sackhoff finally replies, "Between the first and 20th [episode]." Yup. Nice and vague.

Then someone asks if Caprica the miniseries does well, when the actual series will start. Lots of vagueness here too, but if the mini does well, then hopefully mid-'09. Casting will begin soon. Mary McDonnell says, "We've all been auditioning. Apparently I'm too old." What will it be about? Eick says, "It is set 50 years before Battlestar Galactica, so the show is before the first Cylon war. The series is about

creating the Cylons and how that happened."

Someone actually asks Edward James Olmos, who has been silent since his only outburst, a question. They want to know if he'll be directing an episode this season, and what his reaction would be if Ron and David asked him to do the final episode. "I'd love to direct the last show. Won't happen, but I'd love to.... But I am going to direct and episode this year. If I'm lucky maybe somebody will break their leg and I'll get to do two. But it has been a tremendous, tremendous ride because of that. Directing the show has been fantastic and Ron is going to direct his first show." Smattering of applause. "Applaud after you see it," says Moore.
