The executive producer for Scifi/Skyone’s new Battlestar Galactica has had a show blog for quite some time, which is pretty is pretty progressive to begin with. Then today I notice from a boingboing article that he’s started a show podcast. I thought “thats sorta cool” but didn’t really read the whole blurb.
A minute later I looked at the article again and saw the really awesome part of the story. The guy isn’t just doing a podcast, he’s doing AUDIO COMMENTARY for shows that are AIRING right now. Right down to “Beeps will indicate when to pause for commercial breaks”. Talk about awesome. Sure this may only interest a small niche of the overall audience of the show. But these are the people that normally have to wait for the DVD releases to get this kind of bonus feature!
Imagine if Directors/Creators/Writers of movies offered this kind of thing for movies that were still only in theatre?!
