Re: Young Adama is D'Artagnon

The Three Musketeers story must be going through a popular revival. There's going to be a South Korean version of it planned for 3 seasons (12 episodes each). Most Korean shows aren't planned for multiple years. Apparently the Musketeers are going to be part of the Korean King's bodyguard and the second season will film some(or all) in China.

Peter Capaldi's to be killed off offscreen

How blatantly lazy is that?
Not lazy at all.

The article points that Capaldi is unavailable due to his Doctor Who commitments.

If the actor is doing something else you can't kill him on screen (well unless you use a dodgy wig and blurring of facial features).

"Come the next series, the Cardinal will be dead," actor Tom Burke - who plays Athos - confirmed. "He'll just be gone.
"It's a great example of economic storytelling. Their new nemesis will be Rochefort, who's played by Marc Warren."
Oh right. Great.

Imagine if the creators of others shows did that?
It has been known to happen, and sometimes there's no choice. It's often done when the actor dies in real life, e.g. with John Spencer on The West Wing, John Ritter on 8 Simple Rules, Phil Hartman on NewsRadio, Stanley Kamel on Monk, etc. And there are cases where a character was killed off-screen due to an actor's non-fatal departure too, such as Jean Stapleton on All in the Family, John Amos on Good Times, Robert Foxworth on Babylon 5 (out of acknowledged spite for his "defection" to Deep Space Nine), Laila Rouass on Primeval, and others.

That's very interesting -- reinventing the story for a different culture and era.

Has anyone ever done The Three Musketeers... in Space?

Re: Young Adama is D'Artagnon

Anyone else still watching this? The first couple of episodes were mediocre and lightweight, but it's gotten a lot more solid in the past three weeks, with more thoughtful and morally nuanced stories and richer character exploration. Although in tonight's episode, one of the villains was blatantly telegraphed as such. So it's not perfect, but it's definitely improving.
