Sci-Fi Inside: Battlestar Galactica free on iTunes

Apparently this is a new one, as it says you can get a sneak peek of some of the action coming up when the new season premiers Jan 6.

Excellent show! Thanks, jking, for the find.

The actors give excellent insight to the series and the characters, and obviously have been given the assignment of getting us excited about the second half of season 2. They definitely were successful in that assignment. Now I am even more phyched about the rest of this season.

Edward James Olmos said that "the back ten is going to make the front ten look like it was standing still." Tricia Helfer said, "I think Six actually even *******, if I'm not mistaken".

They show some previews and give some hints about what may or may not happen, but they don't give anything away. They leave us wondering and guessing and ready for more BSG. Man, just put me to sleep and wake me up on Jan. 6!

Exactly,

In a few days it will be 2006. That makes your OS 8 years old. That was the last century. If you want to complain about it, find a mirror.

I tried to download this "free" download with Itunes, but the software insisted that since I'm a new customer I had to supply a credit card. Are others experiencing the same thing?

BTW, I'm not asked for a credit card for the "free" podcast downloads.

Best M$%Soft OS outside of mac osx, very little overhead unlike the much bloated XP. The only reason I don't use it is the reason for his post.

That is the way iTunes is. In terms of free downloads, they consider it a purchase, but one that you don't spend any actual money on. Which is why after you make the "purchase" they send you an e-mail invoice.

Man that was such a great cliffhanger ending to the first half of the season. I can't wait to see how it picks up.

BTW, has anyone seen Michelle Forbes in that Global Frequency pilot that's going around? She nails it as Miranda Zero. Much more likable character than she's playing in BSG. (And Miranda Zero isn't really that likeable in the Global Frequency comic books, so that's saying something.)

If you don't want to get this via iTunes, it does air a few times on Sci Fi Channel the week of 1/2/06.

Ugh, this played so horribly on my old iMac I had to wait and watch it at work on my PC. It was my first 'purchased' video. Do you HAVE to run it in iTunes? My iTunes on my Mac runs horribly slow.

But at work it was fine full-screen. It was a good show.

Helo wasn't as hot as he is in the show... and I had no idea Apollo had an accent! Wow!

I can't wait for the new season. Although... for the finale of season 1 I was moving and my TiVo and TV were packed up. I had to wait a few days for a re-airing. For the premiere of season 2 I was on vacation and missed the first two episodes and had to watch them when I returned.

And now for these new episodes? I'm out of town again on that Friday! But luckily I'm back on Saturday so the wait won't be that long.

Battlestar just has it out for me, I guess
