Battlestar Galactica

The following information is from The Official Xena Fan Club Kit List.
Sharon spoke to Lucy about her upcoming episode/s on BSG:

Just talked with her and she says she only did one episode, "Final Cut," which is listed as #8. That's the title on her script. She doesn't know anything about "The Farm" or "Home parts 1 & 2." We'll have to wait and see what the official scifi.com/battlestar site says when they start listing the episodes for next season.

XenaMedia - Music Videos

With the advent of Music Videos and the enormously talented artists out there, I've decided to create an award - the VidXippy (Anyone would like to come up with a better name, please submit it to me <g>). I feel there are so many great Xena music videos in the Xenaverse that sometimes they tend to get lost in all the multimedia overload we all suffer from occasionally. So if you would like to submit a video (doesn't have to be on AUSXIP) that you have seen and you think it's deserves a VidXippy please submit it.

The award will be presented each month.

The first VidXippy has to go to one of my favourites - the incredible music video by DJWP called "Redemption."  If you haven't seen this one yet (and I'm going to channel Lunacy on this) it's HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. An incredible piece of work.

For those that want their phone to ring with the Xena theme (and specifically if you are an Aussie), Foxtel's TV1 has a Xena ringtone available. $3.25 per minute will get you the theme.

Poll question: I'm thinking of having two versions of the what's new page.
A quick headlines only version which I'm experimenting with on the main index page which is broken up in three sections: Xena Warrior Princess, Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor. You can pick the headlines you wish to read and it will take you to the main story.

Or...

you can read the current what's new page version. So here's the question:

Which version do you prefer? Email me at maryd@ausxip.com

The Internet Movie Database has released dates for Lucy's upcoming episodes:

Battlestar Galactica

Attention Canadian fans

  • Canadian fans will have to wait to see Lucy on Battlestar Galactica until the Fall/Winter 2005.  Apparently, Space: The Imagination Station (Canada's sci-fi channel) does not want to break up Season 2 like the Sci-Fi Channel will be doing in the States.  So instead of splitting them up, they will be airing all the episodes at once.  In other words, it means Canadian fans won't see Lucy's episodes until October, November or so.  These two messages were posted on Space's website forum by Mark Askwith who is a producer from Space: The Imagination Station - Click here to read the messages
    Many thanks to MiL for the information
     

Producer Video Blog

  • There's no Lucy here (just yet) but the BSG video blog site has a video of Executive Producer David Eick as he shows you how episodes of Battlestar Galactica are created, from the concept meetings to the shoot on the soundstage, in this SCIFI.COM-exclusive behind-the-scenes feature. The current video is of Episode 5 - The Farm which Lucy will be appearing in. The video doesn't have any Lucy footage but it's interesting. This would have been MAJORLY cool if Rob and Co had done this for Xena. You can view the video blog at http://www.scifi.com/battlestar/bts/videoblog/

The Darkroom Movie

  • The following message is from Lucy (via the Official Xena Fan Club/Sharon Delaney):

    Lucy just finished filming the Mindfire Entertainment/CFQ Films indie
    feature, "The Darkroom," produced by Mark Altman and directed by Mike
    Hurst. Stanley, a teenage boy, is befriended by an escapee from a
    mental institution who sees visions of horrible murders being
    committed. Stanley has his own mystery as he tries to discover where
    his stepfather goes at night. Reed Diamond (Homicide) plays the
    mental patient. Shawn Pyfrom (Desperate Housewives) plays Stanley.
    Greg Grunberg (Alias) plays the stepfather. And Lucy is Stanley's
    mother.

    "I play the emotionally abused wife who's trying to keep her family
    together. I'm the mother Stanley's trying to protect. Charlize
    Theron would have loved this part. I met the filmmakers and decided
    they were the real deal. Working with Greg was such a pleasure and
    Mike Hurst, Mark and Chuck. It was an honor to work with them. It
    was after meeting them I decided I want to work with these people.

    P.S. Mike Hurst is not the same person who played Iolaus."

They actually came to me to be on BG in the beginning, but with two tiny kids, I was not interested in the one-hour lifestyle. Looking forward to playing with the wonderful BG cast, though and visiting my old Vancouver haunts from drama school days."

Your croc is male.
    That croc is going to have issues, man. Sort of like the Boy Named Sue but in croc form...imagine his croc buddies teasing him and calling him Xena...tsk <g>

Xena Episode Guide

Season 1 Reviews

Tickled Pink TV Show

  • Tickled Pink is a documentary show on TVLand about subtext in TV shows from the 60's to the present. Liz Friedman had a running commentary on the various shows, including Xena. Renee also had some comments, and a short interview in the section of the show which described Xena. The clips included the fight at the beginning of A Day In The Life, the night scene from Been There, Done That where Gabrielle snuggles up to Xena after Joxer dies, and the end of the hot tub scene from A Day In The Life. Renee also commented and laughed at a scene from Buffy. She was wearing the same top that she wore at the Con in Seattle, so she probably did the taping while she was in town. or it might just have been a coincidence. It was a great documentary, although Renee did not actually say the relationship between Xena and Gabrielle was Lesbian. She said the usual about how they played up the subtext as a joke but let the audience interpret it whatever way they wanted.
    Many thanks to Caley Woulfe for the mini report

Message from Sharon:

  • Hi All,
    I've received some photos taken in Seattle of fans with Lucy and Renee at the convention and the Space Needle. I can't name everyone cuz I don't know what you all look like! So if there's anyone who doesn't want their photo up, please contact me by Friday and give me a description of what you look like/were wearing so I can spot if you're in any of my pics. The photos themselves are off to Lucy and Renee as they have to clear them as well.

    Thanks,

Classic

  • Added Not Yet (Complete) by Iseqween
    Still on their way home from the unscheduled 25th anniversary trip they embarked on in the story "Fifty Winters Ago" and continued in "Two-Thousand Winters Ahead," Xena and Gabrielle get the most out of their maturity when they run into trouble that underestimates "The Grandma Brigade."
