The end is near for Battlestar Galactica fans! If you're in Vancouver, you don't have to experience it alone!

With rollicking good stories worthy of the Peabody award, a writer's strike, and the general insanity that is network television, it's been quite a ride for fans of the "re-imagined" Battlestar Galactica. And now we're at the beginning of the end. The start of 2009 brings the end of Season 4, and with it, the end of the series.

The local BSG fan club, The 13th Colony has arranged a special treat: 13 Weeks of BSG! It's 13 fan viewing parties, one a week, for the 2 Season 4.0 marathon refreshers and the 10 final episodes! And just for good measure, there's a final post-mortem get together to wrap everything up. I've even heard there will be prizes.

All of the viewings are at LaFontana Cafe, 3701 Hastings St, in Burnaby (Google Map). It’s just a couple of blocks from the Kootenay Bus Loop on Hastings Street, so easy to access even if you don’t have a car.

13 Weeks of BSG

Just found out the other day the current edit for the final episode is 3 hrs long. Want to bet Sci-Fi Channel (and therefore necessarily Space Channel here in Canada) will try to stretch out the end by a couple more weeks in order to garner as much advertising revenue as possible? So the final part of the schedule should be considered "in flux."

Thanks for getting the word out.

Finally, the end

We're going to try to make at least the premiere and the finale, and possibly the Feb 13th episode.
Actually, we may be able to make January 23 too, since I booked off a bunch of days then. Yay! Can't wait :)

This is looking to be a very fun time.
