Tivo Alert: Battlestar Galactica Razor

razor logo

For all of you Battlestar Galactica fans out there, don't forget to set your DVR's to record the special two-hour episode "Battlestar Galactica: Razor" movie.  The Razor Movie is on tonight, November 24th at 7PM Central and again at Midnight Central Time.  This movie will not answer how Starbuck is alive after her ship exploded - we'll have to wait until the final season premiers this coming April for that, but Razor is here to keep the BSG fans happy in the meantime by going into the past and explaining what happened aboard the Pegasus before it met up with the Galactica in Season 2.

"Razor" serves as a backdrop for the events of season four (the final season) of Battlestar Galactica, telling the story of Lee Adama's first mission as the commander of the Battlestar Pegasus and the ship's desperate fight for survival in the immediate aftermath of the Cylon's genocidal siege of the Twelve Colonies. 
Lee Adama's new XO, Major Kendra Shaw, is plagued by memories of her service and sacrifices under Admiral Helena Cain, who was able to save her ship during the Cylon attack — but only by making Shaw and her fellow officers rationalize suicidal battle tactics and brutal war crimes against their own people.

To get you in the mood for this special, here's the first of seven "flashback" previews for the show:
