View Full Version : BSG Season 2 is getting a big push

Has anyone else noticed that all forms of media are really giving a well deserved promotional push for BSG?

I go into work (I work part-time at a grocery store) and what do I see in the back room? The local paper's entertainment/magazine section with a huge BSG Season 2 article on the front. In the middle of that section it continues with a full page of stuff.

Then I go up front and there's the TV Guide cover with 6 and Baltar. I read them both on my first break and they did a great job promoting the series as well as informing would-be new readers of past events.

I think flipped through People Magazine and they had a three page ad in that. They were the slender ones and each page had two different characters with a word beside each -

Commander Adama - Defied
President Roselyn - Defiant

Starbuck - Betrayed
Apollo - Betrayer

Baltar - Pawn
#6 - Player

I am betting there is going to be even more stuff in the coming week, leading us up to Friday night.

I also heard @ either 9 or 10 the SCIFI channel will be going behind the scenes on all three series for a preview of the premieres.

One of the articles also mentions that if it weren't for it's name and history, this would be a emmy nominated show.

Tame thanks for uploading those! :)

Anyone want to take a crack at why Apollo/Starbuck are 'betrayer' and 'betrayed' ? Is that hinting at some future event? I'm intensely curious...

I too have noticed that BSG is getting a lot of publicity -- and I really think it's simply because the first season was so phenomenal. For once a truly fantastic sci-fi show is getting the praise and recognition it deserves. I know several people who don't normally like sci-fi who love BSG.

P.S. It annoys me when they airbrush Roslin's wrinkles! Please, let her look like HERSELF. There's nothing wrong with wrinkles. *sighs*

Apollo has betrayer written by him because he betrayed his dad and sided with the President.

Starbuck has betrayed by her because she was betrayed by the Commander in a sense, since he told everyone that he knew where Earth was..and he didn't.

If it's big media coverage, here's one more for the pile.

The New York Times Magazine - probably this Sunday - will be doing a pair of articles, to time with the second season premiere.
