Battlestar Galactica Troupe Heads into Third-Season Production
By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel SmithMar 24, 2006

The "
Battlestar Galactica" troupe is heading into third-season production feeling spurred on by the fresh wave of acclaim that's been coming to the Sci Fi Channel show, reports Edward James Olmos.

"Normally, the sci-fi genre doesn't get the affirmation dramas get. But since Time magazine named ours the best show of 2005, people have found it and are starting to talk about it," he notes. He's referring to the year-end story in which the series was called "a ripping sci-fi allegory of the war on terror." Olmos isn't getting much in the way of down time before heading up to Vancouver to start shooting the series. He just finished launching "Walkout," the HBO movie he directed simultaneously with shooting some of last season's "Battlestar" episodes. The telepic continues airing on the cable network into April.
