I think we've talked about this before, but I thought I'd pop in with a reminder. To ease into the third season of Battlestar Galactica, SciFi Channel is airing ten webisodes called BattleStar Galactica: The Resistance. Oddly, even though it's already been advertised on television, it gets a bit confusing to hunt them down online. If you directly to the the BattleStar website, you'll see the "next episode" block is featuring The Resistance Part One, but when I click on it ... nothing loads.
Probably because it's not scheduled to appear until Tuesday. I wish this surprised me ... but I've been in webdev for a while and it's often a case of one hand designing a flash animation while the other hand is surfing the web.
Also of note is the studio debate that apparently raged behind the scenes on the webisode:
OK - despite not being able to make the official website too accurate ... in general BattleStar gets my award of really grokking the modern Internet. They have podcasts which serve as commentary. Ron Moore's blog is always an insightful read on the show. They're utilizing iTunes and when given the chance to develop some webisodes ... they insist on taking it as a serious production effort and not simply a marketing gag.
Honestly, I don't know of any show out there utilizing the Web quite so well.
