What the Frak !?! ... and a meme  

So, according to rumors circulating from NBC-Universal, reported at Digital Bits, season three of Battlestar Galactica may not be available on DVD until April 2008!  WTF!?!  I have no frakking clue why the delay would be this long, other than to milk/prolong the interest during the season four break. Here's what the blurb says:

"When's Battlestar Galactica: Season Three coming out? When is Universal going to announce the third season of Battlestar?" You know, aside from "When is this format war going to be over?" I don't think we get asked anything more often.

Well, folks... it just so happens that we're Battlestar fans around here at The Bits
too. So we asked our friends over at Universal. The long answer is (of course) that what follows is unofficial, as the title hasn't actually been announced yet and production is still underway on the special features. However... their short answer is that it's tentatively penciled into their release schedule for next Spring, specifically April 2008.

Yeah, I know that's a fracking long time. Don't kill the messenger. I'm just telling you what they told me. There's no specific word on why they're taking so long to get it done, other than presumably they're just trying to get all the extras finished. Perhaps they want to give Battlestar Galactica: Razor plenty of time by itself on the DVD shelves, so that all you fans will make sure to buy it. Maybe they want to have another DVD product to sell during Season Four
's mid-season break. Maybe they're working on an HD-DVD version as well (that's not official or anything, but it seems a likely possibility). Anyway, as of now, April 2008 it is.

Stay tuned...

Also, just going to spread a meme I ganked from

winter_dreams86, who snagged it fromtrystan830.

Oh, and since the Interweb has been spreading Kristen's official single-status, I am officially announcing here that I'm available for her.  You know, just as a cover-my-bases kinda thing.

Kristen Bell is awesome.

Interesting meme. I like the ones where you actually learn something about a person.

Was Resident Evil any good? I've seen the other two, but wasn't sure about this one.

Me too ;) But since I'm a girl who's normally straight, I don't think my chances are very good.

I like the informative memes, too - that's why this one caught my attention.

The third Resident Evil was actually better than I anticipated. I re-watched the first two recently, to refresh myself, and I'm glad I did. The call-backs and references to the set-ups in those films are throughout this one, and the ending is satisfactory for the most part, while still open enough for more if there is ever a demand for it. For a sci-fi/horror trilogy that had a middle-of-the-road budget and no real big stars - and is based on a game, no less - it actually is pretty entertaining.

And regardless, your chances with KB are about as good as mine, I'd say, lol.

I'm totally fixing to do this meme since just reading yours made me grin throughout. Plus I have found meme's on the whole to be awesome for work-friendly distraction.

Plus, as you probably already know, when the money section comes up - I think my answer is going to be opposite or yours just about across the board. You are such a damn goody-goody. Damn. Good thing your adorable.

Totally sucks about BSG. Actually, it kinda pisses me off a bit. Now I have to rewatch the last few of S3 on tape before S4 starts. That sucks.

No comment on the KB single status. I thought you were hard to deal with before. Geez.

No comment on the KB single status. I thought you were hard to deal with before. Geez.

Only comment I'll add to your no comment is to say that my imagination must have been subconsciously bumped into overdrive yesterday. From what I can remember of a dream I had last night, it was... fun.

Alrighty then.

ROFLMAO! Good for you. Did it wake you up? Cause if it didn't it could have been better. I'll be sending you good subliminal thoughts. ;P

Oh, that is bad frakking news indeed. But it figures; they really are milking the remainder of this show for all that it is worth.

Stealing the meme, btw. Fun AND informative!
