More fic for moi!  
This is fun! I should TOTALLY have birthdays more often. :D (Even if I'm days late to collect my presents...)

wisteria_ wrote me a lovely gentle, intimate Kara/Lee ficlet.

And... so... this new S4 promo that's doing the rounds. How spoilery is it? Is it one of those things that's going to be totally everywhere and unavoidable anyway? *bites lip* I did end up watching the S3 promos before S3 aired. Is it about that level of spoilery? Or worse? (Yes I AM paranoid, thank you, and happy to stay that way!) There's still three or four months to go... I don't want to suddenly become a spoilerwhore... Er, that's ok--I won't be watching it.

Silja: bsg - talking to yousiljamus on January 9th, 2008 11:20 am (UTC)
If you're talking about the 7-8 minutes long clip from Hypa-space what's been floating around the last couple of days - It's spoilery! I watched and ended up just a little bit more spoiled than I wanted to be.

(I'm somewhat relaxed about being spoiled, in that I try to stay unspoiled and I don't go looking, but I do watch things like the official promo-trailers. I messed up here, because I was under the impression that it was just an extended version of an official promo-trailer that has already made the rounds.)

It not only has footage from the coming season (some of which is definitely very spoilery), but also interviews with the cast talking about some plot-points and the general direction they think the show is going to go. It may or may not be actual spoilers, but it's way more information than I wanted. In my book it is much worse than the actual promo-trailers out there right now.

Thank you. That's exactly what I needed to know and there is no WAY that I am watching that. I've seen it referred to as a promo, but obviously it's more than that. Thanks HEAPS for the clarification. And I'm sorry to hear you wound up spoiled.

I think I forgot I was staying spoiler free, because I watched the HypaSpace clip without even blinking. I don't regret watching it. It's actually gotten me extra excited for S4, but there's definitely stuff in there a true spoiler virgin would want to avoid. Though none of it felt substantial. It felt like little glimpses that tease and leave you completely unsatisfied.

BSG is a cruel mistress!

Lee was in it and had episode dialogue, Jamie also had a few words to say, too.

If you want, I could edit it for you. Or you could watch it without sound?

Thanks for the offer! But nah, it's cool--it definitely sounds like the sort of thing I'd regret watching--even part of it. And visuals can be even more spoilery than sound, I find. It's reassuring to hear that they've remembered Lee exists and given him dialogue though. :D

I really do want to stay unspoilt, and if I start watching stuff like this now, who knows where I'll end up? I may watch it right before S4 airs but it sounds like if I watch it now I'll just wind up wanting to know more. I'm not risking that.

The First Evil: Lee - Promo - starpolloasta77 on January 9th, 2008 02:07 pm (UTC)
I didn't think there was anything jaw-dropping in the clips, but there certainly were hints as to what would happen in the first few eps. I'm saying "few eps" since it seemed like it would be a lot of ground to cover in one episode.

One non-spoilery thing I noticed, is that in one clip the sound seemed off to me which made me wonder if we were seeing the finished product or if they were still tweaking the eps.

It was all from the first episode believe it or not. It's gonna start with a bang.

Hmm . . . I watched it and you know I stayed away from the Razor leak and all discussion about Razor like the bubonic spoiler plague. It's been my policy to watch promos. (I go with TWOP rules.) Plus, I watch TV occasionally and sometimes randomly a commercial comes on. I've never really felt spoiled by commercials. Teased mercifully yes, spoiled no.

It had tiny interviews but I don't think anyone said anything. If they did I didn't get it. (It did give me some speculation ideas but I could be wrong about those.) It's like the videoblogs. You can get what they're hinting at after the episodes air but at the time it's over your head. (I don't watch videoblogs while new eps are airing, either.) At least over my head and I like it that way. ;-)

I ended my subscription to TV Guide because it got too spoilery. TV Guide told me about the season 2 K/L Home 1 kiss, when Adama would 'kiss' Laura in season 2, but honestly I had forgotten when I actually watched the episodes was still genuinely surprised.

I'll watch the promo but not look at the Entertainment Weekly photo spread. I know, I'm weird.

Ir's different for me because I don't see commercials automatically--I have to download them specially. And honestly I've felt VERY spoiled by ads sometimes--not BSG ones, but for other shows.

Seems like some people feel this one's spoilery and other's don't, but as I'm pretty hardcore with spoilers, I'll be staying away. If I watched it, I'd be dissecting everything they said until I had my own theory... and that never ends well. I like going in blind.

TV Guide is lethal! *nods*

Promo photos I usually look at unless they contain casting spoilers I don't know about yet.

Happy belated birthday!

I don't think I saw anything that I didn't already imagine was happening, but better safe than sorry. I, as a one-day-a-spirgin-the-other-day-a-whore was quite excited just to see *anything* new BSG related, even if it was just Lee and Kara flying in the vipers without sound. It was a pick-me-up I needed! lol

Thank you! :)

Oh, I'm excited to hear that more BSG stuff is being released. I just don't want to watch it yet. :D

I'm skipping the new promo too! I figure the less I know, the better. Now that I've been catching up on various shows on DVD, I've really gotten used to knowing almost nothing about an episode before I watch it (since I don't see promos or interviews about the show beforehand) and so when I'm surprised I'd really surprised! So even though it's hard to avoid the chatter and pics and whatever else comes out before S4, I'm still doing my best. Though I'm bound to glimpse at a cute pic or two or Lee. :)

Yay! I have company! *high fives*

YES! Isn't it the best?! :D I love it. I think I'm addicted to it. I don't want to lose that.

Cute Lee is so very hard to avoid peeking at, but I've done it before, dammit. *is strong*

I saw this by accident (long story - well meaning friend )

It wasn't terribly spoilery - more confusing than anything -but I wish I hadn't seen it just the same. I just want to see the episodes as they come. I do tend to read interviews, though they tend not to be spoilery. Vague and teasing... yes. There has been so little from Jamie lately. I always look forward to his interviews / comments.

I have found myself becoming more and more (irrationally so) worried about Lee's character arc in season 4 and I don't need to add fuel to the fire.

Hey, I've been under the pump at work and not posting much as a result, but I loved your koala pics. You were so lucky to be so close. I have a really fond memory as a child of having a koala in my front yard - hanging off the gate- he was just beautiful.

Oh dear. Yes, I don't want to view and regret it. And I don't want to have material to worry about, you know? It's exhausting enough while the show's actually airing. And worrying now is kind of pointless as I won't know anything for sure until April... and yeah, I rise and fall in emotion in tune with Lee, so I really don't want to fret about it. :(

Wow, a koala in your yard?! How amazing!

All of the footage comes from the first episode apparently, and possible from the first few minutes of the first episode. It's pretty obviously intended to amp up expectations and get people excited. I've not watched it myself yet... I'm not really sure why. I suspect it's because I've already seen lots of spec and debate on it, and would rather wait until I see the ep.

There are a couple of things that people are getting excited about - we have space battles, for example. In a lot of ways, it looks like S4 will consist of things getting even darker, which isn't exactly a great shock. Lee actually exists though, and is in the footage - and in the footage with Kara, no less. I think the only thing that really bears merit it that by the sounds of it, Lee goes through all the stages of shock, denial and recovery when it comes to Kara's reappearance in very short order - starting with the usual angry/cold "WTF is the universe doing now?" through to the happy hug place... but then if that's going into promos, I expect crap to reign down. And I don't really count that as spoilerish, because the hug clip's been running around everywhere - they've just given a little before and after footage to go with it..

You are running sooooooo close to the knife's edge of spoiling me you know. I'm just saying. *nervous*
