SCI FI Renews GalacticaSCI FI Channel has ordered a second season of its hit series Battlestar Galactica, which has aired five episodes its first season of 13 episodes. Details of the renewal—including which cast members will return, how many episodes will be produced and when the second season will commence—were still being worked out at press time. Battlestar Galactica has been a ratings winner for SCI FI since its Jan. 14 premiere. The latest episode, Feb. 4's "You Can't Go Home Again," scored the show's best ratings yet, with 3.2 million viewers. For the show's second season, creator and executive producer Ronald D. Moore previously told SCI FI Wire that he has already been working on as many as six new scripts to resolve the multiple cliffhangers that will end season one. Moore added that he wants to delve deeper into the show's religious themes and open up the Cylon world a bit more in the coming season. Moore continues to post his thoughts on a personal blog on SCIFI.COM. Battlestar Galactica airs Fridays at 10 p.m. ET/PT, part of the channel's SCI FI Fridays lineup.Wow, this is outstanding news. The show is definently one of the best SciFi shows out there, which is nice, but it's such a deep and interesting show, with great acting, storytelling and visuals. Plus the ratings have been going up. If the SciFi Channel didn't up this, I'd say that they're insane.
Also, the UK Amazon.com er... Amazon.co.uk has the box art for the first season of Battlestar Galactica:
It's pretty cool, although I wish that they wouldn't plaster Six on everything. She's an interesting character, but there's an entire group of characters. They should go the Firefly or Stargate route.
