We have commenced with Battlestar Galacticast, a new weekly deep-dive podcast hosted by Tricia Helfer (aka Number Six) and Marc Bernadin. Tricia and Marc will do an episode-by-episode rewatch of the Battlestar Galactica mini-series in its entirety — exploring, discussing, and debating the themes of the award-winning classic and revealing behind-the-scenes details that only a true BSG insider would know. From there, on to the first season!
(Oh, and maybe some other cast and crew from Battlestar Galactica will make appearances every now and then … you never know!)
So let's get started! In Episode 1, Tricia and Marc begin their discussion of the mini-series with Tricia sharing memories of working with co-stars Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, and, of course, James Callis. They also explore the show's "compromised heroes and dark storytelling" — stuff that's pretty common in TV today but not so much back in 2003.
