Coming to DVD in September is Battlestar Galactica: The Plan, which will cover the same story as the TV series — only it will show it from the Cylons’ perspective. Edward James Olmos, star of the Sci Fi hit, directed the movie and shared some of its details with fans last week in Los Angeles.
“You see the complete opposite of the first 281 days of what we went through, … seen through the eyes of the Cylons, and it is breathtaking. It’s fantastic. It’s not fun, but I will say that you will sit there [gasping].” [...]
Olmos gave credit to writer Jane Espenson, who wrote the entire script, and his lead actor. “I have to tell you right now, Dean Stockwell is a brilliant artist,” Olmos said. “He does a magnificent job of leading The Plan. The Plan is exactly that. It was how they planned to do what they did and what happened. It was monumental. All I can tell you is it’s an extraordinary look at the Cylons, how they masterminded what they did.”
It’s pretty hard for me to pretend like I care about this stuff, but I’m inclined to think that the most extraordinary look at the Cylons is one in which Tricia Helfer is naked. I don’t want to sound like I’m too down on humanity, but if alien robots that looked like Tricia Helfer wanted to sleep with me, I would sell out the entire human race in a heartbeat. Hey, what have you done for me lately?
