Battlestar Podcasts As Episode Commentary

I'm guessing this might be one of those things that everyone knew about it before I did ... but in case you were in the dark as well and a Battlestar Galactica fan:

With the Battlestar Galactica podcast, you can listen to exclusive commentary by executive producer Ronald D. Moore about each episode, while you're watching it.
-- SCIFI.COM | Battlestar Galactica

Works simply enough - download the podcast and then start when it says "The Cylons Were Created By Man". Commentary will then be synced to the program. They even have ones that beep with commercial breaks. Sweet!

Those things are fantastic. Hearing Moore talk about how they put the show together, how it's structured, and the influences they're drawing upon, is a really great insight into the process.

I suppose you've seen this CHUD interview with Eddie Olmos, which makes the next season sound like they're not going to be dropping the quality after that crazy Season 2 closer. October can't get here soon enough.

I hadn't, thanks for the link. Quotes like:

"I’ve been doing this for 41 years, man, and Battlestar Galactica wins the Peabody? I’m the f---ing guy that did Stand and Deliver! I’m the guy that did The Ballad of Gregorio Cortez. I have used the television medium to the best of my abilities and done stuff that will be lasting forever in the annals of the artform – and Battlestar Galactica gets the Peabody."

make me love Olmos. I still can't get the sound of his voice from Blade Runner out of my head.

It's too bad she won't live!

That's exactly the line :)

And from the ending ending, not that studio "green" driving away nonsense.
