BATTLESTAR GALACTICA 12/15 - Eye Of Jupiter

First, I had a great time at the Landmark Theater/TV Guide screening of "Eye Of Jupiter." It was fun to see the episode on the big screen, and I think all the writers in attendence were stunned by the size of the crowd. The line stretched across the entire Westside Pavilion and the theater quickly scheduled a second show to handle the overflow. And the post-show Q&A's were a lot of fun, too. Thanks to everyone who came out!

Those who couldn't make it (and even those who could) -- check it tonight's ep! That's right, it's "Eye Of Jupiter", written by yours truly. Action, intrigue, Cylons, hybrids, Sharon V.S. Sharon, Baltar, Centurions and more. This is the last new episode until we move to our new time and day, Sundays at 10:00, starting January 21st 2007.

Just wanted to compliment you on an amazing episode. When the end credits came up, I felt like I needed a cigarette. Now THAT is a good episode of BSG. Nice work.

It was a great episode, Mark. It felt like it could have been another 90 minute extended ep. Was anything important cut out? Any hopes for an extended version on DVD?

And where's Ron's podcast for the episode? Is he flaking on us? ;)

Logan, can't help you re: the podcast. However, re: "Eye Of Jupiter," the original scripted climax of the show wound up being moved into the next episode. (I know, it's hard to imagine even MORE balls in the air, but there you go!). Telling you what moved would constitute a major league spoiler, but I think you'll recognize the moment when you see it. And pushing the sequense into the next ep was the absolute right decision, I thought the cross-cutting at the end of "Jupiter" really came together well...

Sounds exciting. :) Can't wait till part 2.

Btw, apparently Ron recorded the podcast, but sci-fi.com just hasn't posted it yet, according to what I was able to track down.
