Battlestar Galactica: Razor – Stephanie Jacobsen, Battlestar Pegasus’ Razor, Talks BSG Event!

Razor EclipseMagazine.com Hollywood Insoder

The story of how Kendra Shaw goes from raw rookie to battle hardened razor is set against the story of how the Battlestar Pegasus survived – from the first Cylon attack to its rendezvousing with the Galactica. In preparation for the airing of the Sci Fi Channel event, Battlestar Galactica: Razor [Saturday, Nov. 24, 9 p.m.], I had the opportunity to take part in conference calls with Jamie [Lee Adama] Bamber [posted on November 14th] and Stephanie Jacobsen, who plays the titular character, Kendra Shaw.

Battlestar Galactica: Apollo Talks Razor, Season 4 and More!

Jamie Bamber Interview EclipseMagazine.com Hollywood Insider

While we’ll have to wait until next April to rejoin Battlestar Galactica’s ragtag fleet in Season Four, in a week-and-a-half [Saturday, November 24, 9 p.m.], the Sci Fi Channel will premiere the two-hour BSG special, Razor. Razor fills in the gaps regarding how the Battlestar Pegasus managed to avoid destruction during the Cylon attack that kicked off the series. Recently, I was part of a conference call with Jamie [Lee Adama] Bamber. Bamber is a genial, voluble fellow and extremely eloquent. He addressed Lee Adama’s role in Razor and teased the fourth season, while also making known where he felt some of the program’s few flaws lay. It was the best teleconference in which I’ve participated in several years… So, ladies and gentlemen… Jamie Bamber!

Special advanced preview screenings of the all-new two-hour extended episode Battlestar Galactica: Razor will be held in select movie theaters on Monday, November 12 – nearly two weeks in advance of the episode’s television debut on SCI FI. Written by Michael Taylor and directed by Emmy nominee Felix Alcala, Razor tells the story of Lee Adama’s (Jamie Bamber) first mission as commander of the Battlestar Pegasus and will reveal the story of how Admiral Cain (Michelle Forbes) served her ship during the original Cylon attack on the Colonies.

Screenings will take place in the New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, San Francisco, Dallas and Seattle metropolitan areas. Admission is FREE, courtesy of Xbox360, Zune and “Mass Effect,” the epic science-fiction action and role-playing-game (RPG) experience created by BioWare, exclusively for Xbox360. These special screenings were arranged through National CineMedia. A complete list of theaters and ticketing information are available at www.BattlestarEvent.com. Seating is extremely limited. Razor will air on SCI FI on November 24 @ 9pm and will be followed by the release of an extended/unrated DVD edition on December 4. I already wrote an early review of Razor which you can see here.

Getting It Straight from Staite: Jewel Staite Talks About Being On Board for Stargate Atlantis’ Fourth Season

Jewel Staite Stargate Atlantis EclipseMagazine.com Interview

“She’s a bit of a scaredy cat. She’s not very good in dire or violent situations. She scares easily, which is not such a good thing when you’re in the world of Atlantis. She’s really great under pressure though. I think that’s when she’s at her best, especially when she’s in her element; anything to do with medicine or a complicated medical situation she’s just there. She’s just on. She’s very, very, very smart and very focused.” Continue reading Getting It Straight from Staite: Jewel Staite Talks About Being On Board for Stargate Atlantis’ Fourth Season

The Tellybox: Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding through the glen…Oh yes he is!

BBC Robin Hood Review, EclipseMagazine.com Television

It must have seemed like such a good idea, putting a contemporary spin on an old favourite. Over the years the legend of Robin Hood has provided a rich seam for TV and movies. Errol Flynn, Kevin Kostner and Douglas Fairbanks have all played the green-tight-wearing philanthropist and it was entirely unsurprising that the BBC, after the success of their updated Doctor Who, would want to have a go at re-imagining the Robin Hood stories.

Battlestar Galactica: Razor, is Amazing, – SO SAY WE ALL! Mostly Spoiler Free Review by Michelle Alexandria

Battlestar Galactica Razor Review - EclipseMagazine.com Television

When I went to the mailbox earlier this week there was a little surprise in my box namely a Sci-Fi screener for Battlestar Galactica: Razor. I generally do not review Sci-Fi Channel screeners because I get them so early in the process that the shows are usually incomplete, they are good for background information but not really to review. Razor was the first screener I received from them that was actually complete and wow, did I like this movie. I’m ready for the next season of BSG.

The Boondocks: Adult Swim’s Edgiest Series Returns!

The Boondocks EclipseMagaine.com TV Review

When the second season of The Boondocks premieres tonight [Adult Swim, 11:30/10:30C], there will be a few cosmetic changes. The animation is noticeably improved and the sound is better. What hasn’t changed is the way that stories written over a year ago will still seem as if they were ripped from today’s headlines.

Welcome to the Tellybox – the blog where I will chat about the very best of British telly, as well as the not-so-good and sometimes the downright nasty. So, you can expect lots of meanderings about the fabulous Doctor Who, the intermittently fabulous Torchwood, the yeah-okay-anachronistic-but-has-that-hottie-Richard-Armitage-in-it Robin Hood, and the one I’m still not sure about, Primeval. Maybe because the title is spelt wrong.
