“BSG: Blood and Chrome” on YouTube

By Devin D. O’Leary
Americans are spending more time staring at iPads, iPhones, Android tablets and other computerized devices and less time watching actual televisions. Networks are well aware of this fact. They’ve been trying to exploit it for years, investing heavily in websites like and producing the occasional web-based mini-series. Now, Syfy is making the unusual move of “premiering” the prequel to its much-loved space opera “Battlestar Galactica” on the Internet.

Get Your Gay Geek On

Southwest Gay & Lesbian Film Festival

By Devin D. O'Leary
Out actor/comedian Tom Lenk (star of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” The Cabin in the Woods and Transformers) is the special guest at this year's 13th Annual Southwest Gay & Lesbian Film Festival. He'll be talking about his “dorkumentary” Nerdgasm, in which he travels to England to fulfill his lifelong dream of performing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe—while indulging nerdy British fantasies like following in the footsteps of Harry Potter. SWGLFF starts Friday, Oct. 9, at Guild Cinema with Peter Greenaway's lush Opening Night drama Eisenstein in Guanajuato. It runs through Oct. 18 with 26 LGBT-centric dramas, comedies, documentaries, romances and horror films from around the world plus six blocks of shorts. Nerdgasm will screen Saturday, Oct. 17, at 9:15pm.
