BATTLESTAR GALACTICA RETURNS

Sci Fi Channel on Friday announced that Battlestar Galatica will return for its fourth season on Friday, March 28 at 10 p.m. (ET/PT) with back-to-back half-hour specials. The first new episode will premiere the following week, Friday, April 4 at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).

The first special, Battlestar Galactica: Revisited, will serve up "essential" information on the series' past three seasons, providing the uninitiated with an introduction to the characters and relationships. Galactica's executive producers, Ronald D. Moore and David Eick serve as guides, providing insights and revelations about the series.

The second special, Battlestar Galactica: The Phenomenon, is a "celebrity-studded celebration" of the show's impact on pop culture. Interviewees include Seth Green, country music's Top Male Vocalist of 2007 Brad Paisley and Talk Soup's Joel McHale.

Here's how Sci Fi describes the new season:

"As Season 4 opens, the last remnants of humanity continue their search for a new home, the thin line that separates them from the rapidly evolving Cylons is being redrawn. Galactica's crew, rocked by Starbuckšs sudden and mysterious return from the dead -- and her claims that she has been to Earth and can lead them there -- attempts to make sense of the inexplicable. Meanwhile, four members of the fleet are still reeling from the revelation that they are Cylons and have been all along."



IRON MAN MOVIE UPDATE

Iron Man director Jon Favreau was a guest on CBS' Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson on Thursday night and provided an update on the film.

"We're pretty much finished now. We're still waiting for all the effects to come in," Favreau said. "It was a big thrill to see it all put together. Now we wait for ILM and all the people."

Favreau was wearing a New York Giants jersey after going to the Super Bowl last weekend. He said he got the tickets because of the Iron Man commercial that aired during the game.

Favreau also noted that he lost 80-90 pounds during the production of Iron Man.

"Usually you gain weight when you're filming a movie because there's so much food around," he said. "Instead, I didn't go near craft services or catering and my nice assistant Karen brought me food -- measured -- every time I had a meal."
