Fandomosity: What the fandom news has been so far  
Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, in case you haven't heard of the exciting and spectacular three-part musical webseries that has exploded teh Internets with rage. Includes Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day in a hilarious and unexpected tale of hilarity and absolute crazy antics of a supervillain.

Joss writes an entry in Whedonesque, talking about the highly anticipated Dollhouse and reshooting of the first episode. He gives himself his own Q&A, and the Jossisms of wackiness ensues. On top of that, Joss and Eliza give a press tour of the sets used for the show, and there's also talk of doing webisodes as well.

First look at Caprica, the BSG prequel series.

It has been revealed that Jamie Bamber is going to be on Law & Order: UK playing a cop. It'll be exactly like its predecessors, except it'll be filmed and based in London. Seems like lawyer!Lee has made an impression, of course this isn't the first time he's been in projects where he's worn either a suit or uniform. It also appears that most BSG actors have gotten outside roles that are of justice roles or anything involving the law or politics. Interesting.

The second part of the Heroes webisode series "Going Postal" is up now.

An article highlights the faithful followers of cult TV, which talks about the dedication fans have to their favorite underrated or overlooked shows at such events like Comic Con and other conventions, including Supernatural, Battlestar Galactica, and Firefly. There's mention of Heroes as well as Lost, though this is mainly for those cult shows that are lesser known to the public or don't get the recognition they deserve. It makes sense, since the mainstream shows can get all the awards and Emmy's they want, but it's the love of a dedicated fanbase that makes it worthwhile.

You might have just saved me from boredom, thank you.

I am soooo excited for the UK version of Law & Order, mostly because Freema Agyeman will be in it too. OMG HOTNESS ASDFGHJK. I'm fangirling so hard when I even think of those two together on screen. I hope it will be good and worth watching.

Haven't even heard of Caprica before - shows just how active I am in my fandoms, hahah fail - but it looks interesting. Thanks for the link! :)

Hee, you're welcome. Happy to cure boredomness. ;)

I'm excited as well! I mean for the hot of course but seeing Jamie Bamber in something else is definitely going to be worthwhile. Him playing a cop, possibly running around and being rough with others and catching bad guys? That's something to see!

Caprica has intrigued me, because it's not BSG really but part of the universe that sets up many things, so certainly looking forward to that.

Wow. I was totally about to post about how Jaime Bamber, Britishness, and Law and Order really was something that couldn't be improved but I was totally wrong because Freema Agyeman totally makes it 10 times better.

Thank you! :D

Joss has been on fire recently, with Dr. Horrible and with Dollhouse, and even reportedly working on a horror film, along with his writings for the BtVS S8 comics, there is nothing this man CAN'T do. I'm anxiously waiting for Dollhouse, because coming from both Joss and Eliza's brains what is not to love?

It does look amazing, I can't wait to see where they go with it and how it'll be tied with what we've seen in BSG. Which, by the way, how far along are you in the series?
Robyncakesbitterbird on July 24th, 2008 10:17 am (UTC)
I know itsn like Joss overload!! it makes me soo happy!!!

Im still in s1, my friend is sending me the mini series which I wasnt aware of but was told is helpfull so have been forcing myself to go slow, but I want to watch it all now now now! lol
Renée: Ruby. Amazing crack.rogueslayer452 on July 24th, 2008 11:17 am (UTC)
Joss overloads make me giddy. It's like Christmas! :D

Oh, I thought you knew of the miniseries because you said you were getting S1 and the miniseries is including in the S1 boxset. Unless you didn't get the boxset that included it. Well, at least you've been enjoying BSG nonetheless, which is a good thing. But yeah, the miniseries will give you more info and setup of what you've already seen so far. Which you already like, and I'm happy to have converted another to the BSG universe! Bwahaha! XD

hey there :) oh thanks! Jared is awesome!

This is such a great post! Particularly as I am lazy and like it when I get all my fandom news in one place. :D

The article was pretty cool, but there are of course a couple of asshole commenters (and just as I was feeling comfortable with my comparatively minor nerdiness!) Seriously, most cult tv fans, even most of the ones going to ComiCon, aren't the ones stalking actors or dressing like their favorite character every Wednesday. XD

Hee! I'm not as half as good as those who take time to place gazillions of links in regards to fandom, but I try to mix it up and give only the important parts of what is out there.

I've never been to a convention because I'm kind of scared of that crazy atmosphere. But reading the reports from others and the actors, it feels like I'm missing out on something, and I do want to attend at least one if it's close by. Preferably anyting involving BSG or SPN or Heroes, or anything Joss-related.

You love all the things I love....

I wish I could see Jamie on Law and Order UK that would be sweet

I am on S2.5 right now I just finished part 2 of Resurrection... LOVE IT...

We shall talk soon.

It's the Sisterhood of Fandoms with us. ;)

They're going to start filming the UK series in November, and I have no idea when it'll come out. I'll probably have to resort to downloading it because I doubt it'll air here (or maybe it might on BBC America, IDK).

OMG, that is so awesome. Yay for getting through more of BSG! It gets better, much better.

Looking forward to it.
