The second of Gerri and Eugenia’s triptych about the reimagined series Battlestar Galactica. Sci Fi television shows have long been able to look at modern societies and take issues that are current and work these into their story lines. They can discuss conflict, religion and war more openly than contemporary shows because if an alien is doing it, then it is not these people or that political group. BSG does just that and is a continuation of a tradition that can be seen in some of the episodes from Classic Star Trek. It takes on this view much more than the original series and of course in this incarnation the “baddies” were created by the human race in their own image, so to speak and the aim of this creation is to replace the originals as the next upgrade is better than the last. So, you think that this may be a bit deep, well yes and no, as always Gerri and talk about some of the issues raised. However, they also have an interview with the very handsome Tahmoh Penikett, Karl Agathon, otherwise known as “Helo”. Did you know that he is the son of an ex Canadian Premier? They thank Daniel from Supanova Expo www.supanova.com.au and Lionel Midford, from Lionel Midford Publicity www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com for the chance to interview Tahmoh.
This is the last episode in the Battlestar Galactica triptych and Eugenia and Gerri discuss how a science fiction show not only can it be entertainment but once in a while can contribute to changing the world and they don’t mean that in a fictional sense! BSG made it to the United Nations where they talked about the “races of the world” or in their opinion just one race, “the human race”. This was an underlying theme of the series and one that is dear to the heart of Eugenia and Gerri’s interviewee in this episode. Yes, they have an interview with none other than Admiral Adama, the wonderfully talented Edward James Olmos himself, (but you knew that because you saw the picture above)! In this episode they discuss the issues that are raised in the interview and their impressions of the show, its conclusion and the meaning of what it is to be a human. They thank Daniel from Supanova Expo www.supanova.com.au and Lionel Midford, from Lionel Midford Publicity www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com for the chance to interview Edward.
Join Gerri and Eugenia whilst they talk a little bit about themselves and how they fell in love with Sci Fi. There is a little bit of something for everyone in this debut episode from Women Talk Sci Fi. Even if you are just a casual SciFi viewer make sure you check this out as it's not just for geeks and hard core fans. Stay awhile, stay forever!
Congratulations to Gerri and Eugenia on reaching double figures. In this podcast they interview Richard Hatch when they caught up with him at Supanova (www.supanova.com.au) this year. In the podcast you will also hear Eugenia and Gerri talking about watching the original Battlestar and comparing it to the recent re-imagined series. The two of them will be off to Armageddon www.armageddonexpo.com soon with the promise of more exciting interviews and of course lots more to talk about because Women Talk Sci Fi.
This podcast is the first of in a series of what Eugenia and Gerri call a triptych about the re-imagined series Battlestar Galactica. BSG (re-imagined) of the few series in recent times to look at the fundamental issues of what and who we are! BSG is a darker story than the show that was made in 1978, which had at times a more optimistic premise. In this episode Eugenia and Gerri discuss the differences in both incarnations and in particular they look at the Cylons. For those of you that have not watched the original series the difference between the portrayals of this enemy are significant and interesting. So, is this going to be a dark and dreary podcast, no way! Still wanting to hear the old Cylon byword of “At your Command” Eugenia and Gerri discuss all of the above but they also get to have a chat with the Cylon of Cylons Number Six herself, the very beautiful and charming Trisha Helfer. They thank Daniel from Supanova Expo www.supanova.com.au and Lionel Midford, from Lionel Midford Publicity www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com for the chance to interview Tricia.
