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.

If so, I hope they air them earlier or I'll be a sleepy little boy for a couple of months.

Either that or I'll just wait and rent the DVDs from Blockbuster.

You should get a DVR from your cable company. :)

If you look anything like your avatar, your beauty sleep would need to be accompanied with some pretty serious cosmetic surgery in order to truly qualify as 'beauty sleep'.

Maybe now I know why you had your hat pulled down over your face when you posted that mugshot of yours.

While on the topic, I met up with two ex-canadian Australians in Australia during the last month. You might be able to guess who they are with a pedigree like that. I wouldn't like to comment publicly as to how they looked...after all they did provide me with beer which was appreciated.

Heh! Yeah - Canadians love their beer as much as Aussies do.

Maybe a little more....

It's the hockey - keeps Canadians in good shape after all the beer, poutine and doughnuts...

Remember the old Klingon proverb.

If it's only game... Why keep score...
