I just heard today that SciFi is planning to air new “mini-sodes” of Battlestar Galactica in October. These short 2 to 3 minute clips will show fragments of the original Cylon War and will start in October, eight weeks before the movie Razor will air.
As fans of Battlestar Galatica get ready for the November 24 premiere of the telemovie “Razor” — which will delve into the backstory of the Battlestar Pegasus, her crew, and Admiral Cain (Michelle Forbes) — the network has another surprise. The movie will be preceded by an 8-week series of “mini-sodes.”
Filmed in conjunction with “Razor,” the two- to three-minute installments will air weekly in primetime on SCI FI Channel, and then be available online at SCIFI.com. The promotional shorts will premiere in October.
Written by Michael Taylor and directed by Wayne Rose and Felix Alcala, “these shorts will provide a sneak peek into the original Cylon War, when a young pilot named William Adama (Nico Cortez) discovers a dangerous Cylon weapon that will come back to haunt him and his crew 40 years later,” SCI FI revealed. They will also be included in the DVD release of “Razor.”
I hope these mini-sodes will be a bit better than the webisodes which were aired on the Internet last year, they were pretty bad IMO.
