Talk:R and D TV/Archive 1

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide


We have an incomplete page, and this will be the toughest one to do if you don't have every single episode at your disposal. There's 28 episodes so far, and it'll just cost the nuggets in our ranks just $55.72 (and about 3 days) to download all the episodes from iTunes and forward to each spot. Good luck--we're all counting on you. Bonus points if you spot any changes in the office scenery that you can identify as some kind of joke. --Spencerian 00:38, 9 February 2006 (EST)

Um, Spencerian....two weeks ago they put all of the R&D TV skits online for FREE. You didn't just run out and buy a lot of episodes on iTunes, did you?! --The Merovingian 00:42, 9 February 2006 (EST)

Ah, pooh. Guess I don't need that brake job. (Just kidding.) Hey, post that link up here and we'll get to work here. --Spencerian 00:44, 9 February 2006 (EST)
Did you ever get that link Merv? It would be good to complete this page and take it out of tyhe expansion category. --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 04:25, 11 August 2006 (CDT)
If you find it, post it. Could be on the few media files that we could host off the Wiki. --Shane (T - C - E) 11:18, 11 August 2006 (CDT)
Since all of the R&D TV skits online for FREE, where do I find them? If I find them, I'll be free to post them on the media files that you could perhaps host off the Wiki. In addition, will images help in this expansion?--Starkiller 02:04, 27 August 2006 (CDT)
Images are cool. Right now we are still debating (or figuring out the logistics) of supports video. I am sure that we can even host them. I would think yes, but they are still copyrighted. i.e. we talked about the same thing with hosting the free podcasts. --Shane (T - C - E) 02:41, 27 August 2006 (CDT)
An image of the skit is fine. However, as with the podcasts, the R&D animation videos are copyrighted. Our current server can host video, so this isn't so much a techincal issues as it is a copyright one. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 05:14, 27 August 2006 (CDT)
Thought so. Just checking :) --Shane (T - C - E) 05:55, 27 August 2006 (CDT)
I've found them, and I even put the link to the closing animations on it. --Starkiller 07:36, 27 August 2006 (CDT)

Link Ideas

Any ideas where to link to this from? Currently the only way to find this is through categories (or RC patrol). --Steelviper 09:24, 9 February 2006 (EST)

Perhaps add the episode link from this page to its episode article at the very end? --Spencerian 09:40, 9 February 2006 (EST)
{{Episode Data}} just like the podcast link? --Shane (T - C - E) 11:16, 11 August 2006 (CDT)
I like that idea. (Good question, too!) --Steelviper 11:19, 11 August 2006 (CDT)

In or Out of Episode Article?

A notice someone added a skit description to a couple of episode articles today. I don't think that all episodes have that. Should we add them to all articles? Personally, I don't think they belong, but that's just an opinion. --FrankieG 18:29, 26 August 2006 (CDT)

No. Should remain here. --Shane (T - C - E) 02:45, 27 August 2006 (CDT)
They should be taken out, but linked to, perhaps in the ep data (see above idea) --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 07:09, 27 August 2006 (CDT)


How so? --CalculatinAvatar(C-T) 11:22, 7 September 2006 (CDT)

Have you SEEN the R & D TV things? They're definitionally silly! --BklynBruzer 11:38, 7 September 2006 (CDT)
A silly subject does not a silly article make. If that's the reason for that tag, I don't think it should be there. --CalculatinAvatar(C-T) 21:24, 9 September 2006 (CDT)
Well, it is silly. The subject matter is silly. The whole darn thing is silly. needs to be here. So I think silly warning is a fair warning for the reader. B'sides, it's all in good fun! -- StrayCat0 22:34, September 19, 2006 (AST)

Requests for R&D article expansion

Are there any requests for R&D TV article expansion?

The Season 2 episodes, Fragged, The Farm, Sacrifice, and Downloaded apparently use R&D skits from previous episodes. Can anybody tell me about the sources of the episodes they re-used? --Starkiller 01:58, 9 September 2006 (CDT)

I believe those omissions to the the justification for the expansion tag. I suppose cataloging the changing background pictures might be a possibility, though. --CalculatinAvatar(C-T) 21:27, 9 September 2006 (CDT)

"View this skit here" links/R&D Skits for Season 3

OK, I've put the links in all of the R&D skits you've tabulated to date. So, what about skits from Downloaded and the first Season 3 episodes: Occupation and Precipice? Have you got any idea on what the skits look like? --Starkiller 00:38, 13 October 2006 (CDT)

Going to be split up into the different seasons.

Links & images

Since it seems the links to the skits are now defunct, what are we to do? Also, I think images would add to the humor of the articles.--DrWho42 05:03, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
