On Battlestar and Rumors...

There seem to be any number of rumors circulating about the fate of BATTLESTAR, including suggestions that the episode order has been shortened, we're about to move to NBC, Starbuck really IS a boy (no way), etc. Since I, well, work there, let's just make everything perfectly clear. The season three order was for twenty episodes. As it turned out, we had almost enough material after shooting our third show (AKA the one with the spectacular FX of Galactica on fire, swooping into atmosphere) that we decided to shoot a few more scenes and turn that into two eps, but for viewers, the result is the same. In terms of the order being cut, well, we're currently shooting episode #16 and I'm writing the season finale, so no. We're shooting them all. And I believe the "moving to NBC" thing has been thoroughly debunked, but one more time -- it's not gonna happen. And frankly, I LIKE being on the Sci-Fi. They have been extremely supportive of the show, and creatively, that's what you want and need...
