Mo spoke with Ronald D. Moore, executive producer of Syfy’s "Battlestar Galactica," on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the show’s debut. We talked about the legacy of the show, the reaction to its finale, the difficulty of finales in general (he had some advice for Damon Lindelof of "Lost"), how the TV landscape is changing, what TV networks are still afraid of and what kinds of fare they’re looking for, and the difficulty of telling TV stories with religious and political themes. We also discussed "Helix," a new Syfy thriller he’s involved in, and his other new project, an adaptation of Diana Gabaldon’s "Outlander" for Starz.
Hope you enjoy this far-ranging discussion of the current state of TV and the impact "Battlestar Galactica" had on this galaxy (among others). By the way, if you’re feeling nostalgic for all things Adama and Roslin, Mo covered "BSG" in depth while it was on the air. A lot of her coverage of the show can be found here (keep clicking "Next" at the bottom of the page to find older stories).
