Battlestar Galactica by Carole Segal/Sci Fi Channel
TVGuide.com confirmed with Sci Fi today that Battlestar Galactica's final season beginning in 2009 will air "extra-long" or extended episodes.

Executive producer Dave Eick told the audience at this year's Comic-Con that the final episodes have become so critical to the series arc that they couldn't possibly wrap them up in toaster-sized hour-long installments.

Does this mean we'll get multiple two-hour episodes - more than the 10 remaining planned - from Sci Fi? Eick didn't reveal the exact method of lengthening the episodes, but that should keep us fans frakkin' happy during the long hiatus.

Will the idea of super-sized episodes keep you toasty and warm while you wait for new Battlestar episodes? - Erin Fox
