Is It Friday Yet?  - bulletproofbabe

"17th Precinct" Links from This Week

I know many of us were swept up in the excitement of the 17th Precinct set photos of a certain triumvirate of BSG actors earlier this week. Distracted by all that pretty, you may have missed some articles (and media enthusiasm) about the project. Or, if you're me, you either got really busy or sucked in by the ease of retweeting on @JamieBamberNews. So, without further ado, here is what you may have missed...

Red Dot Diva asks "Will it Enchant?" I think we know the answer to that question!

After Ellen states, "If great casting guaranteed a great TV show, NBC’s '17th Precinct' would be a sure thing." The article does contain spoilers, but I love the graphic they created at the top of the page.

From The New York Post: "Frak yes! It's a 'BSG' reunion!"

Vancouver is Awesome covers the BSG Reunion at the 17th Precinct." Photographer and writer Susan Gittins does a great job of reporting on the filming to date. And, no, I'm not just saying that because I was quoted at the end of the piece. ;) The comment about Susan (Kristin Kreuk) is likely inaccurate, unless Ron made some changes from the script that's floating around.

What's Playing recaps the pilot script and declares it, "A very intriguing pilot script...this could be something very special." Obviously, Spoiler Alert!

Zap2It states, "Tricia Helfer confirms '17th Precinct' is a 'Battlestar Galactica' love-fest." Minds out of the gutter, people! It's actually a very brief piece that was posted after Tricia tweeted the photo of she, James and Jamie. But Zap2It adds, "It's obviously still very early in the game, but forgive us if this image and the prospect of these three solving magic murders every week doesn't warm our heart a few extra degrees." So say we all...

ETA: Esai Morales cast as Lt. Liam Butterfield in 17th Precinct. Liam was the last significant role (that I'm aware of) that needed to be cast. Production continues on the pilot for one more week.

Law & Order: UK - Discussion For Episode 4.3, "Shaken"

"Shaken", written by Emilia di Girolamo

I was a bit lazy this week and skipped posting Monday since "Denial" aired in both the U.S. and U.K. within days, but now we return to the wacky, out-of-sync scheduling thanks to ITV. So, for those in the U.S. watching the episode for the very first time on BBC America, the previous discussion for "Shaken" can be found HERE.
