"Razor" reviews and a chance to see it on the big screen

There's a very thorough and cool review here of the upcoming "Battlestar Galactica" TV movie "Razor," which makes its Sci-Fi Channel debut on Nov. 24. I'm really looking forward to this movie A) because it's the only BSG we'll see before January 2008 and B) because it expands the story of The Pegasus and C) because it includes Michelle Forbes, who I've loved since she played Ensign Ro on "Star Trek: TNG."

Here's a "Razor" teaser, just to whet your sci-fi whistle:



According to Maureen Ryan's TV column in The Chicago Tribune, there's even more good news on the "Razor" horizon. There will be free screenings of movie on Nov. 12 in eight U.S. cities: Los Angeles, New York/New Jersey, San Francisco, Dallas, Boston, Philadelphia, Seattle and Chicago. If you live in one of those cities and would like to attend, you have to register at battlestarevent.com. The site goes live this Friday, and registrations will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis.

I'm glad you like the new look. And I figured I should welcome the boys, since I think half the folks that read this are gentlemen.

You do have to watch BSG. Think of it as nerd homework. I think you'll enjoy it. I was hesitant at first, but I got sucked in pretty quickly. It's very well done and very dark.

I am SO nerdily excited about this!

Me too!

Dammit! I wish Canada were this cool. We never get cool stuff like free screenings of BSG in theatres.

What I wouldn't give to be a non-poor post-grad with ample money to fly to a US hosting city and greedily watch Razor in theatres...

So glad this is happening! I was lucky enough to be at the BSG All-Access Event in June, and Battlestar on the big screen is incredible.

Plus, all of the advance reviews of Razor so far are saying that the FX are phenomenal.

Eeeeee!

Too bad there's a good chance the last season will be split, if the writer's guild strike goes ahead.

Jenn, I'm with you on the big-screen envy. I live in Michigan and we rarely, if ever, get the cool stuff that all the other big cities get. I'll just have to settle for sitting really, really close to my TV when it airs on Sci-Fi. :-)

And Boudiceaborn, I'm completely sad about them splitting the season. I didn't realize it was because of the potential writer's strike. I guess that makes more sense now, but the thought if having to wait so long again is disheartening.

Ro Laren on BSG? What's next, Patrick Stewart and David Tennant doing Shakespeare together?
