This is a listing and overview of video blogs made by David Eick for the Re-imagined Series.

The video blogs began in Season 2 and have continued up to Season 3. Eick uses sarcasm and other forms of "low-brow" humor that some might find offensive when relaying behind-the-scenes information.

A recurring gimmick performed by many of the cast and crew who contribute to these video blogs is their dismissal of Eick as a megalomaniac producer, often expressing negative views of Eick as both a professional and as a person.

Season 2

Episode 205 - Day 2

This is the first installment of the video blog, where Eick chronicles the second day of shooting "The Farm". The scene being shot in question is of Kara Thrace being stuck in the alleged hospital after she was shot by the Cylons.

Gary Hutzel, the head special effects producer, also takes Eick to task on an early version of Louanne Katraine ("Kat") and Brendan Costanza ("Hotdog") bombing run incident.

Topics discussed

  • The hospital room being a "swing set". (See: behind-the-scenes notes)
  • Pelvic examinations.
  • Sackhoff's makeup.
  • Eick's feelings for Joel the camera operator.
  • "The Viper Problem": Kat and Hotdog running into each other in a bombing run.


Episode 207 - Day 4

This covers the cast read-through of "Home, Part II".
