Senior editors Matt Mitovich, Mickey O'Connor and Tim Molloy answer your questions. Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
House is my favorite show, but I am getting sick of this season's Thirteen-centered storylines. When will we see more of Wilson, who has been woefully underused? — Gillian
MATT: Personally, I'm (Olivia) Wilde for Thirteen, partly because her portrayer gives great quotes on the red carpet (and, ahem, is definitely not chilly). But I hear your woe, and can promise that Robert Sean Leonard has meaty stuff coming up later this season, only some of which has to do with Wilson's long-lost brother. Also, for what it's worth (and as hinted at this week), we'll also be spending a bit more time with Peter Jacobson's Taub.
I hear that either Hayden Panettiere or Ali Larter wants to be released from her Heroes contract. Is this true? — Brian
TIM: One of the key Heroes dies at the end of this volume, so that would be an easy out. But Larter ...
Scifi.com's much-anticipated 10-part Battlestar Galactica webisode series, "The Face of the Enemy," started Friday. Veteran BSG scribe, and co-writer of the "'sodes," Jane Espsenson, spoke with TVGuide.com about exploring the character of Lt. Gaeta — including that he is bisexual and his past relationship with Cylon "8" (Grace Park) and current relationship with Lt. Hoshi (Brad Dryborough). Espenson also discussed what she is most excited for in the forthcoming Season 4.5, premiering Jan. 16 (10 pm/ET).
TVGuide.com: Do these webisodes take place before Gaeta's leg injury?
Jane Espenson: No, these are post-leg [amputation]. They were designed to fit into the timeline as viewers are experiencing it — roughly between the two halves of Season 4. Technically, the events of the 'sodes fit during the next episode that will air, so they are a very slight glimpse into the future if you watch them now.
TVGuide.com: Why did you decide to have Gaeta be gay (or bisexual)? ...
Grace Park, Battlestar Galactica
"Frak" may be an overused phrase when reporting on Battlestar Galactica news, but the fact that Sci Fi will be posting 10 new webisodes — that will lead up to the Jan. 16 premiere — is frakkin' sweet!
Fans will be able to get their Battlestar Galactica fix with two webisodes each week starting Dec. 12.
Sci Fi announced that the 3-4-minute chapters will complement the stories played out in on air episodes and give viewers more insight into characters and events from the fourth season.
The webisodes titled, "The Face of the Enemy," follow the story of a stranded Raptor ship...

A sci fi gift has arrived early this season, BSG fans! Sadly, it's not a shirtless Jamie Bamber, Michael Trucco or Tahmoh Penikett. But TVGuide.com did score access to the newest Battlestar Galactica trailer, which so far, has only aired during Sci Fi's Bond Marathon over Thanksgiving weekend.
If you want the second half of the fourth season, aka the last BSG episodes ever, to be a surprise, hide your eyes. Oh who are you kidding, you want to see it, and you want to see it now! What has happened since they reached an annihilated Earth? ...
