Wellcome Teral to this masterpierce of sci-fi.. alltought this is clearly a "Space Opera" more than Sci-fi alltought they choose to keep as realistic as possible..

For what i read in your reviews you are for some really big pleasant surprises in the series, some of then starting with the first eps..

About the Cylons being created by the man and then rebelling..

The history of the original series Cylons was similar but with aliens between.. i will explain:

the "original" cylons were a race of humanoid reptilians (like the aliens in V without human disgisse) who created an army of robots to serve them... but those robots rebelled against their reptilian masters and killed them all in very short time... then they take the name Cylon for themselves... after that they began to attack other races... but something put them at hold .. humans... the colonials defended other races against the cylons and thats why the Cylons developed such a obsesion against humans.. and they didnt stoped during "a thousand yarens" until the attack we all see in the movie..

So in this new version they simply put humans in the role of the original Cylons.. they wantesd to eliminate aliens to increase "seriousness" and for what i have read because Olmos and Mcdonnell had both stated that if some alien appeared they would left the series..

BTW... season 4 and final will begin in March finally? are we speaking of the end of March or middle-low March?

EW's BSG preview hints at what's to come.  It also reveals who the final Cylon isn't.

Edit: Well, assuming RDM isn't frakking with our heads again.

And now it's time for some baseless speculation on the identity of the 12th Cylon!  This time, I'm going to be looking at the ages of the actors portraying the 11 known Cylons.  In spoiler tags, of course, just because of Teral.

The bad thing for me is that the final one aparently has to be one of the cast , at elast that they said and that they had allready left clues..

It would be better that he/she was a new character...
maybe the 1st "humanoid" cylon who decided to scrap or not the old Cylons, someone that could explain why 5 cylons did that , and why 7 others did another thing..

Alright. Fine. Fine. I like it now. It's awesome.

First season is a bit of a slog, and there's still the odd dull episode, but once this show gets its hooks in you, it does not let go.

Also, everyone's a badass. Espcially Tigh. But ESPECIALLY Adama.

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?
I think it is worth getting on DVD, Amazon.co.uk is currently selling the first three series in a boxed set for £40.

it almost seems strange that you haven't seen it yet,

The airing of the show (and the timeslot) on Danish TV, have been too erratic and confusing to allow it. But they promised to start from the beginning in the new year, airing episodes every weekend during primetime, so I decided to check in. Naturally, they didn't deliver on their promise, the first episode after the pilot was #36 (without spoiler alerts even!) So after 4 years of avoiding learning anything about the new show (apart from production pictures) I already know about New Caprica. Nice job, Channel 5!

Well, looks like I'll take your advice and buy the DVD's.

That's the one I got my eyes on. With the weakening of the Pound it's even a mere 400 dKr (bought domestically it would more likely be 3 times as much).

I can see that point, but for me they simply replaced one cliché with another, an inferior one even. Also, for a show that sports robots which look and acts exactly like humans, down to the cellular level, throwing a hissy over aliens seems a bit presumptuous. Meh, as it is it's not a big deal as such, and if it saves a few bucks for better CGI and models so be it.

And now I'll head over to Amazon.co.uk...

And then I'll go skiing in Trysil, Norway  big grin

I think out of all the robot cliches, I like the new Battlestar Galactica one best.  It's very Bladerunner (which I know own on Laserdisc) with the perpetual theme of wanting to be human and what being human specifically means.  They also thread in religion in a very interesting manner.

Well the "Cylons looking as humans" owns more to "Blade Runner" than to cheap the production..wich is probably right..

I like very much Helfer´s acting.. at first i was too exceptic about her, specially after learning that she is a model , i thought "oh no, here goes another bimbo who doenst care a shit about her performance or anything save money and modeling" .. but in the end, after all seasons im impress with her... Virtual Six is the more model like encarnation.. but giving her so many more roles, all being the same yet all diferent make her looks like a good actor.. this all comes because she said that when production began.. and she was told she was to incarnate a robot..but a "human" robot wich acts like a human but is not a human.. she had not very clear how procede..then Olmos aproached her and told her to watch and study "Blade Runner" wich had precisely that kind of human robots wich pretend to be human and even some dont know that they are robots..
she said that Blade Runner was the base for the Cylon character..

I like her acting more than many times Mcdonnells..
i liked Mcdonnell as she was an old known face and her performance in the mini is excelent..
but sometimes.. you see her with a funny face.. almost smiling when people is being killed or the entire human race faces doom...
sometimes she acts great..but some others you have the sensation that she is not taking this seriously and that she will explode in laught when someone talks about Vipers or FTL drives..

BTW..

RDM saying the because of the strike we may never see the end of the series?   eek
Its not funny.. thats a bluf.. how in hell a beloved series would be cancelled just for a strike... wouldnt that mean also the cancelation of all series on hold?

and where i can follow the strike progress?,

Nope.. that was the Cloud 9 and was indeed blown up by a depressed Gina ...i find funny that she choses to massacre 7000 civilians as means to revenge from the crew of Pegasus, she surelly could had smugled herself and the nuke aboard Pegasus...same as she escape from her before ..and blown up Pegasus...

In the upper hand we had Pegasus saved for 1 more year , in the lower hand, the biggest civilian ship got nailed..

Im speaking of the Space Park , the big ship with a ring rotating structure.. she is now the biggest civ ship (1.200m long, Galactica is barelly 1.500), housing of surelly a lot people ..

NOOO THE SPACE PARK NOOO PLEASE ANYTHING BUT!!

fine..we then blow up Galactica

NOOOO GALACTICA NOOOO ANYTHING BUT!

Then Space Park

NOOOO

how about that beer 6 pack ship?

Mmm... middle acceptable..
 big grin

Couldnt they blow up some nasty one? like the Prometheus? I really hope the misile hits we see her taking its the only one and she scapes with that damage only..

Like i said.. at this pace no civ ships will reach anywhere...more than 1 lost in the 33 crisis (Olympic carrier and some other ships as stated by Billy) 3 or more lost in Cloud 9 blow-up , unknown number lost in New Caprica (Ron said some were shot down) and 2 more lost in the passage.. lets have in count that there were originaly some 80 ships.. now we should have 70 or so

Just finished "Exodus, Part 2", need some sleep but I'll try to post my thoughts tomorrow. For now I'll just say this: I love this show! If it can keep churning out quality stories like "Occupation", "Resistance", the "Home" two-parter and "Kobol's Last Gleaming" BSG might just topple DS9.

You heard me!

Speaking of DS9 vs BSG: is there some union law demanding Canadian actress' in sci-fi shows to be unbearably cute? By actress, I mean Nicki Clyne (and Nicole DeBoer) and by cute, I mean   love

You just saw Exodus part 2?

You have just watch the most amazing maneouver ever by a starship...

The universally called "Adama Maneouver" ... all Trek maneouvers are just put in shame compared to this..
Its a odd episode because has many of the very best moments in Galactica..
the bad was the lost of Pegasus , but even in her end she went out in biiig style taking out 3 Cylon Basestars with her..

Wonder why those two Basestars in the end didnt jump out.. maybe they need some time to jump (FTL tech is far more advanced in the Cylon fleet than in Colonial vessels)

Ok, now the strike is over..

are we going to see the final second half of seaosn 4 in 2008?

"With the possibility of the writers' strike ending soon, E! Online has suggested, based on comments by writer Jane Espenson, that production will resume on Season 4 of the series quite quickly, but the remaining episodes may not air until the autumn of 2008 or the start of 2009."

Well.. Sci-Fi messes up again with everything..


Acording to Aaron Douglas site, the filming of the second half of season 4 will resume in a couple of weeks.. and the eps will be called Season 5!

So they finally screwed up procuring themselves two seasons for the price of one to sell two sets of DVDs with 10eps each wich will cost still like a full season..

The thing is even worst.. everything points to "season 5" being premiered in 2009.. i Wonder if like FOX they will try to split "season 5" with another season 6..
RDM was strongly against spliting the season with much time between because he said the .. we fans can take and will take the wait.. but the main public, who gives rates and so ..will not.. they allready surelly by now thing Galactica is dead after more than a year hiatus .. RDM sais (and i agree with him) that the last season is made of building interest wich would boost enormly the ratings.. but stoping sudenly in the middle with another 9 month stop will make many people say "to hell with this ..im tired" .. they will not be looking forward the "season 5" , they would allready forgotten

Why every show i hook up ends up being missthreated and splited in millions of seasons?
Even FUX when splited futurama .. the season 4 was season 4.. didnt created 2 DVD sets

Top 10 reasons to watch the new season of BSG (from last nights Letterman).

Standard Letterman fare (ie. more miss than hit). The only funny one was #5, #1 and #9 were mildly amusing, the rest was meh.

Which reminds me, I better get around to watching the rest of the episodes sometime.

Thanks a bunch, Nixo, The first link doesn't work any longer, but the second one "kicks ass1"  The BSG is running a marathon on SciFi channel all day yesterday that went to six p.m. and the marathon started up, again, at eight a.m. my time.  The BSG marathon is going till 6p.m. today.

edit- Thursday is also running the BSG marathon once again until 6p.m. my time.
And Friday is also going onto conclude with the season finale of season three  on the BSG marathon to the 6 p.m. time slot...

Then, of course, y'all know that Season four of BSG starts Friday night.  You can always double check:  http://www.tvguide.com/listings/default.aspx
For your local time slot for your viewing pleasure.

They are going to replay the season three finale at 9 p.m. my time; then launch the season four premiere at 10 p.m. my time  FOR A SIXTY-ONE MINUTE EPISODE.(i DON;'T QUITE KNOW IF THE EXTRA MINUTE IS 8:59p or 9:01P.  I sure don't want to miss any extra seconds; so, I'll be peeling my eyes wise of the telly way before the start of the brand new episode starts!            wink

edit-  There's a good BSG article, here:   http://www.tvguide.com/tvshows/battlestar-galactica/191395     Good to know         wink

edit-  If You despise spoilers please don't visit the article... Ausiello throws out a couple of Future future pearls.  I find spoilers intriguing and fun.  Nothing spoils that which I love when it comes to acting/entertainment mediums! http://www.tvguide.com/ask-ausiello/battlestar-galactica/080402-25

They killed Kat!! They killed one of my favorite BSG characters! Damn you, Moore. Damn you, you magnificent bastard.

Well, the Big Writeup™ took longer than I expected (hey, there's a lot of characters to cover) so I decided to go ahead and see if I can jam in all the final episodes before season 4. After the brilliant "Collaborators", the average "Torn", the solid "A Measure of Salvation", the underwhelming "Hero" and the 50/50 "Unfinished Business" (loved the scenes with Roslin and Adama, pretty much resented the melodramatic Starbuck/Apollo/Dee/Anders menage-a-quatre) I get this? The murder of a character I've enjoyed watching grow naturally over the series, from a frightened nugget to someone who can out-Kara Kara? If only it had been for a better episode. The plot is barely there, hopefully there's a pay-off later, because there wasn't here.

2 scenes (and a few touches here and there) saves the episode:

1) Kat's deathbed; both her conversation with Starbuck and Adama rings true, particular Adama's refusal to listen to what Kat have to say about her past, because he already know everything about her he need to know. Screw Seymour, this is a character death that affects me. Even to the point of getting misty-eyed... ::sniffle::

2) Tigh returning to CIC; you gotta love his reaction to the applause. A very nice bit of continuity that Gaeta didn't join in the cheers. I would be pretty miffed too if I had gone through the same ordeal in "Collaborators". Surely, The Circle apologized to him at some point, right? Tyrol absolutely, Seelix as well, but I wonder if Tigh and Starbuck ever got around to it? Barolay and Connor probably don't care.

Also, please make the scenes on the basestar go somewhere, or have the Cylons vent Balthar. I don't care which, just no more myth mumble-jumble, please.

Anyone else getting an Adam West vibe from Balthar when i deduced the Hybrids riddles in less than 60 seconds? "Holy hyphenated hybrid, Batman!"

Now, I'll try and return to the last few episodes.

RIP Louanne "Kat" Katraine.    cry
