Galactica Start Date Pushed Up

Woo! The SciFi Wire has announced today that Galactica's start date has been moved up to March 28th:

Battlestar Back With A Bang

SCI FI Channel's Emmy and Peabody Award-winning original series Battlestar Galactica kicks off its fourth and final season on March 28 at 10 p.m. ET/PT with two back-to-back half-hour specials, with the first new episode premiering the following week, April 4, 10 p.m.

Beginning at 10 on March 28, Battlestar Galactica: Revisited will serve up the essential information on the series' past three seasons, providing the uninitiated with an introduction to the characters, relationships and backstory. Executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick serve as guides and hosts.

Battlestar Galactica: The Phenomenon follows at 10:30 and is a celebrity-studded celebration of the show's effect on pop culture. Interviewees include Seth Green, country music star Brad Paisley and Talk Soup's Joel McHale talking about why Battlestar Galactica is one of the best shows on television.

In the season-four premiere, the last remnants of humanity continue their search for a new home as the thin line that separates them from the rapidly evolving Cylons is redrawn.

Galactica's crew is rocked by Starbuck's (Katee Sackhoff) sudden and mysterious return from the dead, bringing claims that she has been to Earth and can lead them there. Meanwhile, four members of the fleet are still reeling from the revelation that they are Cylons.

Battlestar Galactica will air Fridays at 10 p.m.

Count down the days!

Im sorry but the start date has not been pushed up. They're airing two specials on march 28. The first new episode is still on April 4. That's when the season starts, the specials don't count. Also, this isn't news. You talk about this in your previous post from a week ago. What gives?

They're starting up with the specials, getting people ready for the new episodes on the 4th. No need to freak out.

I'm sorry if my comment came across as freaking out, all I'm saying is that your headline got me excited and then there was really no new news in it.
