SFTV Roundup

SFTV Schedules
First of all, the SFTV Schedules are mostly updated. Click on the links to the right to get the latest schedule information. The email version should go out in the next day or two.

Dresden Files Moves Back, Jim Butcher on Tour
The final two episodes of The Dresden Files on SciFi on April 8th & April 15th will air an hour later, at 10 pm ET/PT, preceded by a repeat episode from earlier in the season. This week's episode, What About Bob?, has been very well received. You can catch it on Friday on SciFi at 5 pm ET/PT. Dresden Files creator Jim Butcher is currently on a book tour, including a stop in Phoenix next weekend for the Arizona Book Festival and a signing at the Poisoned Pen. I've helped line up a bunch of our Arizona authors for the book festival as well. Visit the CASFS book festival page for the full details.

Galactica Keeping a Secret Wasn't Easy
The surprise at the end of the third season finale of Battlestar Galactica involved a lot of subterfuge. Over at the Los Angeles Times they've got an article about what everyone went through trying to keep it a suprise (trying to be appropriately vague for those of you who haven't watched it yet).

BBC America Revamps with Torchwood and more
New president of BBC America Worldwide, Garth Ancier, announced that the BBC America channel will start focusing more on contemporary British TV, dropping older shows like Benny Hill and adding current teen soap Hollyoaks as well as Doctor Who spinoff Torchwood. They will be making each night a theme night with Supernatural Saturdays being their genre showcase. Expect to see the second (and final) seasons of Hex, Afterlife, and Life on Mars this summer with Torchwood, the second season of Doctor Who, and Steven "Hugo" Moffat's Jekyll later in the year. Full details can be found at the site in their BBC America Upfront article.
