Frakkin' A, man, that was incredible. Though I think the TV broadcast has been ruined for me, what with seeing it on a massive screen without commercial interruptions.

Although the extended, unrated dvd looks to be about twice as long as the broadcast version, what with all the stuff they showed in the ad for it. Seriously, they showed two distinct storylines in it that didn't make the version I just saw.

In conclusion, Razor is awesome and I can't wait to buy the dvd.

B'oh!  ^^

I think it's too farfetched that
Will we ever get to see that fancy spear of (some god?) that Starbuck found?

Were the 4 new discovered cylons ever tested in Baltar's lab?

Why not just a new cylon blood transfusion for Roslin ? :P

Now thats interesting zombiejesus , Baltar tested Tight`s wife Helen, and Adama`s blood, and dont know if he tested too Adama`s ..

Anyway if he did we should asume that Adama is not a Cylon (sinze Baltar is heavily wondering who are the final 5, if he knew Adama is one he would not wonder so much, at least he would doubt about 4) or that his Cylon detector simply doesnt work well and it detected Sharon by chance

Well they say in the movie that this hybrid was the first step in the Cylon transition from being purely mechanical to becoming organic beings, and that afterwards there were other attempts. But this Hybrid and the Cylons surrounding it were never scrapped, and according to Sharon the Hybrid may still be trying to evolve, hence him capturing the science team from Galactica.


Now for something different:

Am I the only one thinking "Adama   big grin  " When they see the president of Pakistan in the news? There's something about him, I just can't put my finger on it.

EDIT:

I'm not the only one who noticed. There's more than just the physical likeness too.

I got it today...
well, it has a couple of added shots, some shots are longer.. it has uncensured language and some flashbacks added (the best)

One importan thing..

In the first two flashbacks, they screwed up the hell a lot the continuity (RDM involved, he came from Star Trek and in Star Trek they did nothing but violate continuity constantly, wich is quite anoying because its like if the writer is laughting at your inteligence/memory)

In the series is stated that Adama was a famous Viper pilot, hero of the first Cylon war..and even we see in the series itself his hystorial.. in wich is stated that he started to fly Vipers in combat 2 years before the armistice...and from the  mini that his favorite Viper was the 7242NC and that ship "taken him out of many problems"..

Now in the 2 first flashbacks ..is stated that Adama was a rookie, that only flew ONE mission in the war..in wich he shot down 3 Cylon raiders and lost his Viper colliding with a 4th...
thats hardly a record to make him a hero...
also in his "only" war mission to top all he flys Viper 1104 and destroys it.. not 7242NC.. and Viper 1104 is used later in the series by HotDog and some other pilots..

Now.. ignoring the Viper issue.. is interesting that those two heavily conflictive first flashbacks have been deleted from the finished movie.. so .. should we just ignore them too?

because if we ignore them and if we watch Razor without having in count the web-flashbacks.. we just asume that Adama is allready a worthy Viper pilot and that this is just the last mission of the war and that Adama flew many others... even we can asume that they rotate Vipers and just today Adama was not flying the 7242NC (in the series no pilot fly allways the same Viper, the 7242NC itself has been flown by Lee and Kat among others and 1104 has been flown by StarBuck, HotDog and Kat too) ..
I would settle for that.. they screwed up with the first two flashbacks, so we ignore them and keep with the last 5 wich are included in the movie and dont violate any contiunity.. problem solved  big grin

In the extended version of Razor there is some very hints of what may happen in season 4 and final in the lines of the first hybrid:

So, the local station decided to start Galactica (and TNG) from the top in 2008. Decided to give it a chance. So far I've only seen the pilot miniseries (all aired in one massive 3 hour block).

In a nutshell: very, very promising and an interesting new take on the show, though not without a weakness or two.

The build up to the destruction of the Twelve Colonies was pretty good. I particular like the expansion of the fleet (AFAIR the Colonial Fleet in the original 1978 series consisted of 5 battlestars (with 7 other destroyed during the war)) to more realistic numbers and the cause of it's destruction being complacency, treachery and surprise, rather than mindbogglingly naive stupidity and incompetence. The way the Viper handles in battle (with strafing, very liberal use of weapons, what looks like Newtonian physics, etc) is also a welcome update, the armament of Galactica as well. A battleship this size should carry such an arsenal of weapon arrays.

I guess they could've played the actual destruction of the Colonies up a bit, as it is the only real image we get of it is the situation with Boomer's Raptor. But the desperate message sinks in eventually, when  the president decides to sacrifice thousands to save tens of thousands as Apollo puts it.

Speaking of Boomer's Raptor; Although I initially liked the rewriting of Balthars character from moustache-twirling, goateed villain to self-centered opportunist, it remains to be seen if he was worth sacrificing Boomer's copilot. The rest of his scenes were dragging, and could outlive their welcome real fast. Hopefully they'll find something else for him to do than agonizing over how to protect his own tail, while trying to score some Cylon ditto, because that is already irritating me. Then again he does look enough like Alexander Siddig that I'll grant him some leeway.

Humanoid Cylons, eh? Didn't see that one coming, but intriguing nonetheless (and the Toaster Cylons looked awesome). Although their near-magic resemblance of humans is too much, I like the potential in this for conflicts. Too bad about Boomer though, I really started to like her.

Generally I like a lot of the new ideas in this incarnation and the retelling/rewriting is mostly positive, one of the exceptions are the idea that the Cylons were created by humans and then later rebelled, mostly because the robotic uprising-cliche is as old and tired as sci-fi itself. Another is the Borg Queen-vibe I get from the "Cylons getting a new body when they die"-idea, hopefully that'll wear off.

As for characters, I really like the new Commander Adama. He looks like a no-nonsense, gruff and military type unlike most scifi captains and you have no doubt he is running the ship. Period. Great casting choice with Olmos.

President Roslyn is a good choice too, she seems sincere but not without a certain "politician" streak. Remains to be seen if she got what it takes to hold her own against Adama. Looks like a source for conflict.

Starbuck, not too sure. As a character she works nicely, and her relationship with Adama and Apollo is obviously important and will develop as the series does. Her relationship with Tigh could be interesting as well. However her tough woman-routine seems forced so far. Overall I'm positive, needs a bit ironing.

Tigh, is interesting (flawed characters always are). He seems like a capable soldier, a good strategist, but not really likable. A man born to be XO, but not CO. He is a man that could stage a military coup against president Roslyn, because he feels it will be more efficient and I have a hunch he will be in command at some point and if this happens his actions will be more than interesting to see. Most likely they will be disastrous to some extent.

Without more filler, the rest of the characters not already mentioned seems good, I particular like cheif Tyrol and Boomer (like I said, too bad she's a Cylon).

So overall looks like a good show. If the episodes live up to the pilot, I expect to follow this show for a long time. Anyone who'll recommend bying the DVD's rather than wait for the episodes to air?

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

I would!  Of course, if you wait for them to air, you might actually get to see season 4 on time.

It's a really good series.  I was actually thinking about and agreeing with a lot of what you were saying Teral.... it almost seems strange that you haven't seen it yet, and I'm reading about something that I've been watching for years.

It is a serious and fantastic piece of science fiction.  It also asserts the true notion that strongly artificially intelligent robots believe in a monotheistic God.
