I Love Bear

June 20, 2009

I know Bear McCreary is a taken man, but I love him and his music…I’m sitting alone in my room listening to his beautiful soundtracks to Battlestar Galactica. Even if you’re not a fan of the show I can promise you they’re worth a listen. I haven’t watched Caprica yet, but I’ve fallen for the […]

Goggle Box Bits n Bobs

April 30, 2009

My dashboard and post making page are still horribly borked (clearing cache/cookies is not working, any ideas?). Anyway, I wanted to mention a couple of things that are tv related: – I’m hearing rumours that Virtuality is dead in the water. Sob! I hope we at least get to see the pilot someday. – I’m […]

This town’s religion – Battlestar Galactica ‘Daybreak’

HOWEVER my favourite, favourite television show is coming to an end in less than two weeks. Those who know me are probably shocked that I have not […]

Putting the Oar in…

January 19, 2009

For the last few months I have been following with interest news of Ronald D. Moore’s next sci-fi programme, ‘Virtuality’. Moore is, as any sci-fi fan worth their salt will know, the power behind ‘Battlestar Galactica’ and a veteran of the Star Trek franchise, having cut his teeth on ‘Next Gen’ and contributed to ‘DS9’.
