Well, the time has come for me to finish Battlestar Galactica. I’d like to hold the first of two liveblog parties on the site over the course of the next two weekends. The first of these will be for the FULL “Daybreak” episode (that’s all three parts) that makes up the series finale of Battlestar Galactica.
So, if this is your first liveblog, the rules are pretty easy, though we will have a revised schedule this time around.
Because there are at least two (and possibly three) versions of the three-part finale in existence, it is inevitable that, based on what people have access to, we will not all be in sync. It’s just the reality of this. To accomodate this and to schedule in two intermissions for necessary breaks, we will split this liveblog up into three segments. The schedule is as follows:
The liveblog will be on Saturday, November 26th at 9am PST. Please consult a world clock to determine what time this will be where you live.
9:00am: Begin “Daybreak, Part I”
10:00am: Pause wherever you are for a 15-minute intermission. If you have one file or one episode, you might need to pause. If you are watching them split-up from Netflix, iTunes, or Hulu, your “episode” has ended. DO NOT GO TO THE NEXT ONE UNTIL AFTER THE INTERMISSION.
10:15am: Unpause or, in the case of a streaming site/iTunes, start Part II.
11:15am: Pause if needed for second intermission.
11:30am: Unpause or start Part III of “Daybreak.”
If this is your first time watching this episode like it is for me, I advise staying on the first page of comments and leaving your liveblogging there. This is what I do to avoid spoilers if someone gets ahead of me. Simply use the comments as a space for you to flail, flip out, sob, post many GIFs, and console others.
I am excited to have this party with you! Next weekend, we’ll liveblog The Plan.
