Frak Partiers Prep for Battlestar Galactica's Final Season


Battlestar Galactica superfans around the country are prepping "frak parties" where they can watch Friday's Season 4.5 premiere with like-minded sci-fi addicts.

Some of the viewing parties, like the ones hosted by "professional smartasses" Cort and Fatboy, radio personalities at KUFO FM in Portland, Oregon, will be weekly events that follow Galactica into the grave as its final season winds down.

The free Portland frak parties (promo poster, above left) will take place at 10 p.m. every Friday at the Bagdad Theater, which just happens to be a brewpub. (Better brush up on your BSG drinking games.)

Not to be outdone, the 13th Colony, a Galactica fan club in Vancouver, British Columbia, will holds its own viewing parties each week (cool, eight-sided promo poster above, right). And it's not just a Pacific Northwest thing: Other frak parties will take place at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas, and at the site of the Battlestar Galactica Prop Auction in Pasadena, California.
Aside from meeting fellow BSG fans, watching the show live will keep you from missing the three bonus minutes that will be tacked onto the season premiere if you fail to adjust your DVR.
