Further Reading: Lost and Battlestar Galactica

Now that most people on both sides of the Atlantic have seen the start of the latest runs of Lost and Battlestar Galactica, the Choob is here to help anyone, like me, who may be confused about some of the latest twists and turns – or who simply wants some hints about what lies ahead for the rest of the seasons.

The stars, writers and producers of both shows have been doing the rounds in the run-up to the new episodes and their aftermath, with lots of juicy insider info and clues about what the future may hold (or not).

The BSG creators have also been dropping hints about what we can look forward to in Caprica, the prequel show set 50 years before the events of Battlestar Galactica, charting the creation of the Cylons (due to begin early next year) and the second Galactica TV movie The Plan, directed by BSG star Edward James Olmos, which will reveal more about the plan the Cylons were said to be following in early season os the TV show.

It goes without saying that, unless otherwise noted, the following links take you to interviews and articles that contain spoilers about the first two episodes of season five of Lost (which aired last Wednesday in the US and tonight in the UK) or the first episode of season 4.5 of Battlestar Galactica (which aired in the UK last Tuesday, January 20, and in the US on January 16).
