Ron Moore and David Eick Tease Battlestar's End, Caprica's Beginning

Battlestar Galactica

Fire up your raptors, Battlestar Galactica fans, the final season of the Peabody Award-winning show begins Jan. 16 at 10 pm/ET on Sci Fi. If you're like us, you have so... many... frakkin' questions! The biggest one: "Will all of our questions actually be answered?" Executive producers Ron D. Moore and David Eick tease what's next for the four Cylons revealed this past season, assured us we won't need to wait the very last episode for the fifth Cylon's identity and gave some details the prequel series, Caprica, which is set to air in early 2010.

What are you most proud about the way the series ended?
Ron Moore: I would have to say that I'm probably most proud about the fact that I think we were able to answer most of the questions that we'd raised over the years. And, sort of, to resolve most of the mysteries and the grander questions of the show and at the same time give a resolution to all the character arcs and to wrap it up by the end. And, we don't save everything until... read more

Damages Season 2 Preview: Will Ellen Take Down Patty?

Rose Byrne, Damages

Its first time around, FX's Damages dangled before viewers the season-long question of who killed aspiring legal eagle Ellen Parson's fiancé. Season 2, premiering Wednesday at 10 pm/ET, opens with a dead-serious Ellen talking to someone off-screen — whom she ultimately shoots. And then we flash back, in dramatic Damages style, to "Six Months Earlier." TVGuide.com invited Rose Byrne to shed as much light as she could on Ellen's dark missions of vengeance ahead.

TVGuide.com: Season 2 literally starts with a bang, doesn't it?
Rose Byrne: Yes, literally. It was a lot of fun to film. It's similar to last season, setting up the two different timelines.

TVGuide.com: Are you glad they held onto that framing device? I know there was a bit of pressure to make the show a bit...
Byrne: Clearer, yeah. We still have that catchy thing with the two timelines, to help build the mystery side of it. But I think it is clearer, not as complicated, if you will. It's not a murder, it's more about figuring out who Ellen is talking to [while holding the gun]. Over the course of the season, you can make your mind up.

TVGuide.com: How dark a place is Ellen at these days?
Byrne: Oh she's in the depths of grief and trauma and ... read more
