It's been pretty busy on the Battlestar Galactica front lately. It's off air, sure, but inevitably one thing leads to another, and now, we have more former troopers showing up in another sci-fi series, and the soundtracks getting some love (and a release date). First up, it's been confirmed that three BSG stars will take roles in another series that will air on Sci Fi, Warehouse 13 . Tricia Helfer will guest star as an FBI agent based in Chicago, while Michael Hogan will play the father of the show's star, Myka, played by Joanne Kelly. (Funnily enough, the person playing Myka's mom is Hogan's real-life wife, Susan.) One more for Warehouse 13: the guy behind the Fleet's resident lawyer, Mark Sheppard, will star as a mysterious figure who represents the organization behind the Warehouse. It's as if they were never really gone, it seems. That series makes its premiere on Sci-Fi on July 7. And then there's the soundtrack for BSG's final season, which will be released on July 21. The release will be marked by a couple of concerts with the show's composer, Bear McCreary, at the helm. The first one, on June 13, will kick off the 2009 Grand Performances Series at the California Plaza in Los Angeles. The second set of performances will be in San Diego's House of Blues, from July 23-25, smack in the middle of that year's Comic-Con. As for the soundtrack, well, it's two discs of music from the split-up fourth season, with the music from the series finale--"Daybreak", which aired in March--featured on the second one. That one's out, again, on July 21--but much earlier than that, on June 16, the soundtrack for the BSG prequel, Caprica , will hit shelves (and online stores, surely), also composed by McCreary.

Former Battlestar Galactica toasters Tricia Helfer and Michael Hogan are staying in Sci Fi's orbit, signing on to guest star on the net's new paranormal dramedy Warehouse 13 (premiering July 7). Helfer will play a Chicago-based FBI agent, while Hogan has been cast as the father of Warehouse heroine Myka (Joanne Kelly). In a fun little twist, Hogan's real-life wife, Susan, will play the role of Myka's mom. And if that's not enough BSG for you, Mark Sheppard (who portrayed the Fleet's morally flexible lawyer, Romo Lampkin) will appear as enigmatic figure who represents the organization that controls the Warehouse. original Source

Friends - 10.20, The Last One (2) After 10 seasons of living, loving, losing and laughing with this gang, Friends came to a sad but perfect end. We got Ross's dramatic race to the airport, leaving him (and us) brokenhearted as he went home without Rachel, then finally the perfect reunion we'd dreamed of! Not everything can last forever, so while Rachel and Ross got together, Chandler and Monica went through with their move and Joey was heading for LA, but we were left knowing everyone was happy and would still see each other plenty in their fictional post-show lives. Arrested Development 3.13, Development Arrested After numerous hilarious and sadly unsuccessful blatant pleas to 'Save the Bluths,' Arrested gave in to its under-appreciated canceled fate. As usual, the finale featured all the Bluths spiraling out of control, but to truly epic series finale proportions! We got the mysteries of Maeby AND Lindsay's true identities solved, George Sr. out of prison, and a party squabble that ended with all the Bluths (and non-Bluths) getting a banana stand justice smackdown, a police boat chase, a final batch of huge mistakes, and maybe a (now confirmed!) movie. Battlestar Galactica - 4.20, Daybreak (2) This show's finale was not loved by all, but overall, I think the series was wrapped up well after all the drama, fighting, and death. It didn't bring a cheesy happy ending or a tragic one, but it brought enough of the characters a future on Earth, plus finally brought peace to them all. There was far too much religious influence, and my biggest disappointment was the lameness of the Starbuck conclusion, but I think all the characters minus Starbuck wrapped up just right from the sad but sweet ending for the President and Adama, and everyone else left getting to finally live happily... with the threat of repeating it all over again generations later... Gilmore Girls - 7.22, Bon Voyage I had expected this series finale to be a big cliffhanger since the cancellation wasn't for certain when the episode was filmed, but luckily it was expected enough that they did a wonderful job of giving us a satisfying ending. We were left with Luke and Lorelai finally happily together, Rory graduated with an excellent job lined up, and Rory not with a guy but with the possibility of love to come. Ah, just right! Dawson's Creek - 6.24, ...Must Come to an End No true fan can discuss this finale for too long without a few tears, but that is exactly why this was one of the greatest season finales. Not only was it perfectly tear-jerking (okay, they played us a little hard with the Jen dying storyline), but as we jumped into the future with the creek kids of Capeside, we saw everything was just right with Dawson reaching his dream of making a show, Joey a writer living happily with Pacey, and they all came together to see Jen in her final days. It was sad, but a perfect way to say goodbye to the characters, and to see that long-awaited love triangle conclusion that left everyone happy - isn't WB just the best?
Guest star James Callis ( Battlestar Galactica 's Dr. Gaius Baltar) plus a straggly wig and a dash of Charles Manson adds up to a very chilling episode of CBS' Numbers, as the hit CBS drama winds down its fifth season. The British actor offered a look inside the creation of the charismatic sociopath who dared to abduct Charlie's sweetheart, Amita. To Read More Click here .
