Flight of Battlestar ContinuesBattlestar Galactica's search for Earth continues to be an open-ended adventure, executive producer David Eick said.Contrary to comments by Edward James Olmos (Adm. Adama) at the Saturn Awards on May10, no end has been announced for the award-winning show. Battlestar Galactica is preparing to film its fourth season, one that will include 22 episodes, rather than the previously announced 13.
I've seen two different friends on their blogs post the "Battlestar's next season is the last" news, so I figured it was worth pointing out that Eick has specifically said Olmos is wrong. Now this could be damage/spin control, I don't really know. Eick also doesn't address that Katee Sackhoff (who plays Starbuck) confirmed it in the original article. I also don't know anything about this iesb site, so they may or not be reputable. I suppose while we're pointing out stuff I should point out that Eick's remake of the Bionic Woman was picked up, which also features . . . Katee Sackhoff - although it's not clear to me how big her role there will be.
Upshot of it all? Too much a mess for me to sort through. Which is sort of fitting, since the show is rapidly becoming too much a mess to sort through. Honestly my reaction to the orginal story was relief. If they are really going to wrap up the next season may be watchable. If season four doesn't get rapidly better than season three I doubt I'll continue watching very long.
