How to Recover from Binge-Watching Any Show: A Friendly SideReel Guide

ol li { margin-bottom: 1em: } By now we've all done it. You go in with the intention of watching one or two hours of a show and the next thing you know, the weekend is over, you're surrounded by takeout boxes, and you can't remember the last time you took a breath of fresh air. You've powered through the last 40 episodes of Breaking Bad or Mad Men and run out of show. Or maybe you've stretched the consumption of a show like Orange is the New Black out over a couple of days, but realize there are only 13 episodes in the entire series (so far). Either way, the problem is the same.  Like any addict, when the product runs out, you're going to go through withdrawal. Here are some easy steps (no, there aren't 12 of them) to ease that pain:  Take a shower. If it was a weekend marathon, there's a good chance you haven't had one in a while — and even if it was a slightly longer haul, you'll still feel better. If the show has a theme song, go ahead and sing it to yourself. If it's the Cheers theme song, sing it REALLY LOUDLY. Head over to your computer. Google "[Name of show]" and then any or all of the following terms: theories, fan fiction, wiki, supercut, mashup, tumblr. A trove of riches awaits you here. If looking at a science fiction, fantasy, or supernatural show, you don't even have to pace yourself. Note: If you're looking for any Star Trek series , go directly to Memory Alpha . Devise a drinking game around the show! No, we're not telling you to trade one vice for another — we're telling you to combine them.* It may force you to rewatch (though no, it will never be as good as the first time), or at least delve pretty deeply into plotlines, characters, and (potentially) catchphrases. This will allow you to... …bother your friends into watching this totally cool show you just discovered that they've already watched on a weekly basis and probably have no desire to talk about it anymore. IMPORTANT: Tell them you're supplying the liquor. Movie spinoffs? MOVIE SPINOFFS!** Why quit your habit? There are millions of hours of television to catch up on. Just pick a show , and check out our recommendations . *We do. **The only exception here is  Stargate , where the movie actually preceded the show and is completely different in both casting and tone.

Edward James Olmos on What It Means to ‘Be’ Battlestar Galactica’s Bill Adama

  Last summer, severely jetlagged from a trip to China, I watched all of Battlestar Galactica in two weeks of sleepless nights that led to squandered days. Remember that Portlandia sketch where Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen sit down to watch one episode of Battlestar and get so caught up in an obsessive marathon that their power gets cut off and they lose their jobs? That was pretty much me, though I did manage to get into work every day — groggy and unable to think of anything but my next fix. I did fall asleep hardcore once, right as a beau was coming over, and woke up to five missed calls and ten missed texts that he was on my doorstep (and left), shrugged my shoulders, and dove into the next episode. That did not end well. And when I hit the series finale, I didn't track down Ronald D. Moore to write one more episode, like on Portlandia , but I did take a personality quiz to determine which Battlestar Galactic character I am. To my surprise, I'm Commander Bill Adama: dutiful, prideful protector of the last survivors of the human race. (I'd been hoping for hotheaded fighter pilot Starbuck, but was pretty pleased nonetheless.) Read More... http://www.vulture.com/2013/07/edward-james-olmos-explains-commander-bill-adama.html

‘Battlestar Galactica’ Alum James Callis to Stir Up Trouble on ‘CSI’

The season finale of CSI, the long-running procedural (now in its 13th season!) will air on Wednesday, May 15 on CBS, featuring a familiar face to TV viewers: James Callis of ‘Battlestar Galactica’ fame. It seems he will play “a journalist who has the Las Vegas Police Department – including the CSI team – in his crosshairs, as he aims to expose the corruption and hypocrisy of those tasked with policing Sin City”. It is also said that the character Callis will play is “harboring a secret in his past”. What that will spell for the members of the ‘CSI’ team are unknown because, of course, details are scarce on the finale. READ MORE...
