No DVR can contain the return of ‘Battlestar Galactica’!

Sci-Fi & Fantasy, Television

Battlestar Galactica from NBC Universal

Warning: If you are planning on watching the Jan. 16 return of Battlestar Galactica on DVR delay, you should know that the episode runs 3.5 minutes long. So plan ahead and adjust your recorder — you don’t want to miss a frakkin’ minute.

The final 10 episodes of Battlestar Galactica kick off with an episode entitled “Sometimes a Great Notion,” which picks up the story from last June’s cliffhanger, in which the Colonial fleet led by Adm. Adama (Edward James Olmos) discover Earth, only to find it a barren nuclear wasteland.

The first new episode of 2009 begins at 11 p.m. Arizona time Friday on Sci Fi. Missing anything at this point would be nothing short of catastrophic, as the identity of the final humanoid Cylon is reportedly due to be revealed at ANY TIME and not simply reserved for the forthcoming series finale.

If you do miss the end of Friday’s show, Sci Fi Channel wants you to know that you can see it all online after it has wrapped up for us here on the West Coast, according to Sci Fi Wire.
