Well, given that the same 3d-effects studio that does Galactica also did the 3d work on Firefly, I'm kinda surprised we haven't seen more of the ol' space duck.

I haven't watched that much of the new Galactica. So Serenity actually showed up, did it?

Oh my sweet merciful God. That's one of the coolest things ever... Thanks!
A hint, perhaps, of cross pollination... or that Firefly and Galactica exist in the same universe. THAT would be a cool crossover. How wicked would it be to see Mal and the gang going up against Cylons!?!

...Ahh... a man can dream.

"Galactica" producers talk film version.

Don't click the link to Chicago Tribune if you don't want spoilers (like I did, d'oh).

A tad offtopic, but I quite enjoyed the amount of Battlestar and Stargate banter at this past weekend's PEELathon.

I don't often get to talk about the show with other people who watch it...

I'll be glad when the new episodes start this Sunday.  Then SciFi can quit running the ads for Galactica with that god awful song in it.  So generic.  That commercial makes me weep more than clicking on that link you provided above.

I was wrong when I thought that this wouldn't be as good as the original series I saw as a child. It is excellent, I found it online and started with the miniseries yesterday morning and have got as far as Flight of the Phoenix. I intend to get the DVDs so I can have a better picture and watch all the extras  smile

Welcome to the New Galactica, Tweek.  Now you're only three years behind the rest of us...

And to call the orignal series, a smoldering pile of feldercarb, a 'good series' shows that you must have been very young and not very discriminating on what you found entertaining.

All barbs and jabs aside, BSG version 1 had so much potential but just didn't deliver.  Please don't even mention Galactica 1980...

Ha, ha!  I'm waiting for Dr. Zee to show up in the new series.  laff

The original series was one of my favorite shows when I was a young one, and like Tweek,  I had no intention of watching the new series.  I didn't want to.  Some time after the new series started airing, I was flipping channels and came across an airing of the new series movie and got sucked in.  I'm glad I did as the new series is quite good.  I still enjoy watching the original series though, even if it wasn't that great.

On the new series, what's wrong with Apollo?  His wife is hotter than Starbuck.  Keep it at home, boy!

I'm not three years behind, the last episode I watched first aired in Sept 2005  smile

The original series was good for its time and target audience, I was ten or eleven when I first saw it but still enjoyed it when I saw it again a few years ago although that might have been partly nostalgia. That said I don't intend to by that series on DVD unless it is in the bargain bin, I will get the new series though.

I already mentioned Galactica '80 in my post on page one of this thread, I said it was not good, that was being polite  tongue

The first season started off with a bang, but ABC (the network) decided that since Mork and Mindy was getting better ratings than BSG, they would change the direction of the series.  The bad scripts, the same visual effects and the bad science just chased the sci-fi nerd fans away.

To me, Starbuck (Dirk Benedict, who later played the exact damned character with a different name on The A-Team) was a poor Han Solo rip off and Apollo was a litle too much the good son.  I did like Adama (Lorne Greene) and Tighe (Terry Carter).  The women were more cheesecake than warriors, but then this was the late 70's going into the early 80's.

Then that God-awful Galactica 1980. It sucked so bad that Glen Larson (the producer) wanted nothing to do with it. 

That was "Must Suck" TV.  That had to be one of the top ten worst TV shows of the 80's!

The easiest thing to do here would be to agree wiht Ralph on all accounts.

I guess I saw the orgianl series with a different perspective, I may have seen some of the episodes on and off growing up, but I did not see the whole thing through until I had seen the first series of the remake. Best way to put it is that both series' are of their time, the Starbuck character certainly could not exist as he was in the new series.

As I said way back on page one was that I disliked the pretty much in your face nature of the orginal shows philoshophy. Well I guess many shows have teething problems in their first season and we will never know where the show may have gone if it carried on.


On to the latest episode. Was an ok episode in my opinion, felt certain aspects could havve been fleshed out more. But poor Gaius he just can't catch a break, although that gun caught him quite well..quite the bruise.

Well let's hope none of this series stars are relegated to the depths of Celebrity Big Brother.

I caught up quickly, I just watched Rapture, can't wait for the next episode to be broadcast/uploaded  big grin

I'm pleased that the quality has been fairly consistent through out the two and a half series aired so far, the "webisodes" were pretty good too  smile

Did Balthar say "motherfucking" just now?  It sure sounded like it.

Also, that was the single most intense scene since the atmo jump.

Ok that was a pretty awesome episode although I really do hope they wrap up the Starbuck and Apollo thing, it's starting to drag.

Certainly raises a few question though. Like what the hell did Baltar (I had to check there is no h in his name) say to Gaeta to make him flip like that? Does Baltar now know the faces of the final five and thus knows Gaeta is a cyclon? Was there any special meaning to Adama and Roslin saying that Gaius is none of them? (did they simply mean he is human or something else)

First i would say that Gaeta being a Cyclon is not completely out of the realms of possiblity. The are many occasions that it seems like he has helped the cyclons such as when the network was set up and he appretnly handed Boomer the gun to shoot Adama.

Why I mentioned Adama and Roslin is just me wondering if they may be the two of the final five and that the final five have a differnt plan from the other cyclons which is why they are not spoken of. I know Roslin suspected  Adama being a cyclon would be counter evidence but perhaps they learned during the year we did not see.

My theory is that the final five Cylons at some point split off from the main Cylon group, wiped their memories, and joined with the humans.  In ager, the main Cylons wiped THEIR memories of the final five, except for the fact that they exist.

Although a something Roslin said in the newest ep makes me wonder -

Dammit!

I wanted Baltar trial action!

Also some Galactica news:

  • Sci-fi has officially picked up the series for a fourth season.
  • Vivendi Games is currently in the process of making a Battlestar space-fighter action game for the Xbox360 and PC.

Does the teaser thing give any hint if it's the frackin Baltar trial episode? They are really putting that off for too long, maybe keeping it for the season finale?

Adama was projecting himself, being with his dead wife, just like Six told Baltar the cylons can do... project their surroundings!   tongue
