An entire site devoted to Leia’s Metal Bikini, complete with costumes, fan art and screencaps.
I’ve been terribly lax in writing about the new Battlestar Galactica series. It’s excellent, and if you’re not watching it, I beg you to give it a try. Sci-Fi is playing the first 5 episodes of the series (all that’s aired in the US so far) Tuesday night, starting at 7, and the miniseries/pilot is available on DVD. New episodes air Friday night at ten and rerun Mondays at the same time.
I’ve seen a few episodes of the original, and heard of original fans going up in arm over the changes that were made, but almost everyone I’ve spoken to has embraced the new series. Give it a try. Please.
And in the sea of prequel news, we get a small peek at the EU future… Sue Rostoni posted a bit from the cover copy of The Swarm War, first book of Troy Denning’s Dark Nest Trilogy:
As for Luke, he will have to prove, in a lightning display of Force strength and swordsmanship, that he is — beyond a shadow of a doubt — the greatest Jedi Master in the galaxy.
See it straight from the source here. Rostoni also said we should be seeing the book’s cover (and presumably, the full blurb) within a month.
Fantasy and sci-fi is now in demand on TV. Wasn’t it only yesterday that Angel and Firefly were canceled?
On Alias, Weiss gets some action.
And, last but not least, Kevin Smith drops by Degrassi: The Next Generation a show I totally do not watch (erm) to mack on his childhood crush. Jason Mewes (Jay) and Alanis Morissette also appear.
The Times Online has an interview with Hayden Christensen about his work on Revenge of the Sith.
Dark Horse has a five-page preview of the Revenge of the Sith comic adaption. They’re not consecutive pages and there’s no text yet, but there are a few things new to even the extremely spoiled.
Star Wars pet and baby costumes. Because we’ve been dying to dress some poor dog up like Slave Leia.
