With fall premieres still a month away, now's the perfect time to play TV catch-up or simply revisit an old favorite.
A reboot of the '70s space opera, Ron Moore's re-imagined Battlestar Galactica is a science-fiction masterpiece. It blends action, religion, grief, hope — and some killer cheekbones — into one heck of a gripping saga. Yes, the ending might be controversial, but it's not like Lost's.
What if your future was the past? And could you leave your old life behind for a new one? That's the question Starz's highly anticipated series Outlander asks.
Based on the wildly successful book of the same name, Outlander stars Caitriona Balfe as Claire Randall, a combat nurse in 1945 who's swept back in time to 1743. Immediately, Claire finds herself fighting to survive a clan of soldiers and in an effort to keep suspicions at bay she marries handsome Scottish warrior Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan). As the two develop a relationship, Claire is torn between her blossoming romance with Jamie and her feelings for the husband (Tobias Menzies) she left behind.
Starz has set a premiere date for its new time-travel drama Outlander. The 16-episode first season, which is currently being filmed on location in Scotland, will bow on Saturday, Aug. 9 at 9/8c.
Holy frak! Battlestar Galactica might get another shot at life through Universal. The movie studio is in the early stages of putting together a new film that would be a reboot of the television franchise, Variety reports.
Universal has hired Transcendence screenwriter Jack Paglen to write a new take of the series that would be yet another incarnation of the Battlestar Galactica universe. Original series creator Glen Larson will produce the new film.
