Since Teresa and Nelson were a little later than they expected getting back (they must've hit weather), we also had time to watch the 42-minute featurette on the back of the DVD. Lots of fun interview clips with actors and writer/producer Ron Moore. I wonder if he remembers me interviewing him for STARNET's newsletter some 15 years ago!
The big surprise of the interviews was that Jamie "Apollo" Bamber is British! Also, not black-haired. The interviews with Katee "Starbuck" Sackhoff and Tricia "Number 6" Helfer were fun; Helfer is, not surprisingly, very well spoken... and much more attractive out of character. (Though I'm a fan of Number 6's wardrobe!)
Edward James Olmos is, without question, the star of this show; he's perfect for the role of Commander Adama. He only shares a couple of scenes with Mary McDonnell, the other acting giant, because their characters spend most of the miniseries in different parts of the galaxy. But they work well together.
Unfortunately, a defective DVD made us miss bits of the show; I'm going to take it back to Best Buy to exchange it for another copy. Meantime, I'm looking forward to watching the first season of the Sci-Fi series soon!
The weather was great for sitting on the patio at Maxie's when we finally got down there... it had cooled off enormously, and my only complaint was about the bugs. They'd run out of the ancho chili flank steak po'boy special I wanted, but the waitress kindly brought me some of the cajun peach BBQ sauce from that dish to try, and I had an andouille sausage po'boy instead that was quite satisfying.
