Female writers should be hired because some good writers happen to be female. Interesting stuff that goes beyond the usual “we have no good ladies on television because no ladies write television and only they can understand our precious boobs and feelings” argument.
With the proliferation of photos of women in cosplay at conventions, it’s easy for me to forget that dudes wear costumes to conventions, too.
by Juliana Weiss-Roessler How does this photo exist since Dirk Benedict is notorious for hating how Ron Moore reimagined (or, as he refered to it, “unimagined”) the original Battlestar Galactica series ? He even derisively referred to Katee Sackhoff’s version of the character as “Stardoe.” Related Stuff:
by Amy Ratcliffe You have to admit that in space or Middle Earth, accessories can go very wrong. I think someone once decided that jewelry in space had to be large and reflective. Fantasy epics seem to tend towards tribal themes with shells and nuts. Both of these options can be done well, but it’s […]
by Amy Ratcliffe Back in high school (not so long ago, definitely not over a decade ago), it wasn’t easy to find fellow geeks. Besides the fact that I am from a small town, classmates didn’t usually wave their geek flags out in the open. They kept it tucked away in the dusty hall closet. […]

By WorldofHiglet – Caprica is separate, but related to, Battlestar Galatica, as Mark Stern, executive vice president of original content for Syfy and co-head of Universal Cable Productions, said at the Caprica Press Tour. Over the Four Seasons of BSG the true nature of the Cylons (and everything else, for that matter) was hinted at, picked over and teased apart until the final reveal. And yet…so many things still unknown.
By Teresa Jusino – Once again, SyFy sells women short. They say they want to draw in female viewers, and yet they hide the fact that their arsenal now contains an amazing female character while they resort to the same old hottie shots of their female lead. It seems female BSG fans will have to take it upon themselves to let other women know that this incarnation of the Battlestar universe is, in fact, “woman-friendly.” SyFy sure as hell doesn’t seem to want to do it.
By WorldofHiglet – In a few short days the new series from Syfy, Caprica, will burst onto our screens. I’ve been waiting for this since the end of BSG, so to count us down in style I’ve concocted the Caprica Countdown, packed full of must-have* information about the series. And on Release Day, Jan 22th, you can read my report from the Caprica set as you wait anxiously for the 9 PM Eastern Time. And don’t forget the PinkRaygun/Caprica give away Haiku Challenge.
