I'm up to Colonial Day in season one, where they have the elections, I'm glad I downloaded the series!

Cool show, Balthar is great, but it's a bit weird that he didn't reveal Boomer onboard Galactica...   confused
Can anyone explain that one to me?

I'm too lazy to dl this, but it has recently started here, so I have watched the first epsiodes (including the miniseries).

I have to admit that I have developed quite a dislike for a number of characters, thus I wouldn't mind if they get sucked out of an airlock (by accident, of course.)

Then again I do have to admit that the makers of this series are trying to do something different compared to other SciFi shows.

Overall it's an intersting show, quite good, but not great.  tongue

He feared that if he revealed Boomer, her Cylon programming would kick in and command her to kill him before he could tell anyone. They're sneaky, those Cylons.

Anyone else find this series morbidly depressing?  wink

We've seen the long impossible journey to Earth before, but we all knew they'd make it in the end, but at least Adama and Roslin know who's after them, whereas Janeway didn't!

Well, I finally finished watching Season 1 on DVD.

Oh my God, this show kicks so much ass...

It really does boggle my mind how awesome it really is. Possibly the BEST show I've ever watched on TV...

I'm debating on whether to buy the first half of Season 2 on DVD or wait til they release the full lineup... Any advice?

They had to go and make the finale 90 minutes long.  I set the VCR for only 60 minutes!  mad
Man, I suck.  Good thing I found out about this on Thursday, after all the reruns of the finale are done.  Bah, now I've got to find a torrent of it.

Watched about half of season 1. Sorry fellas. It's commited the most heinous crime a sci-fi/fantasy show can commit: it's boring. Boring as hell. It's the characters. Every scene they're in, they just suck the life out of everything, 'til I wish the Cylon's would just bombard the crap out of the human fleet, before activating their doomsday weapon and destroying the entire universe. Maybe I'm just that infantile that I ask that a tv show not take itself so seriously, but maaaaan. Dry like the Gobi.

I think I felt like that when it first came out, but now I like it, it's a slow burner, and then when some of the shit hits the fan it's awesome.

I can see the seriously thing though, at least they have a few funny guys like Gaius and Starbuck.

Similes eh? Umm.... you're soft like a bag of tits.  tongue

Email me.  I have the final ep on my TiVo and I can either burn you a copy on DVD or record it on VHS.

Let me know one way or the other.  I'll keep it for a few more days in case you want a copy.

That's your opinion, but I have to respectfully disagree.  I don't find it boring at all. Most of the time the show is downright riveting.  It is a serious show for sure, but I think that's par for the course for a drama.  The show chronicles the lives of dysfunctional characters running from the apocalypse.  There isn't much room in that narrative for the "wrap up the happy ending in the final five minutes of the show" type of story telling. Some might consider that a flaw (maybe you do), but I find it refreshing.  To each his own!

No no no, I LOVE it when a show constantly leaves you hanging on the edge of your seat, giving out a groan of dismay when the episode ends because you hate the fact that you're going to have to wait a week to find out what happened next. I don't get that with BG. I'm trying to figure out why (and the characters make a good scapegoat.  tongue )

The series is a little boring for the first 3 quarters of season 1 - but it picks up tremendously after that, imo.

Some interesting info on Battlestar... (Especially for Star Trek fans)

Michael Taylor joins Galactica writing team
TUESDAY - MARCH 14, 2006


Veteran genre television writer Michael Taylor has joined the Battlestar Galactica writing staff for the show's upcoming third season, the Chicago Tribune has learned.

Taylor served as a staff writer on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (alongside Galactica chief Ronald Moore), and a writer and story editor on Star Trek: Voyager. Following his Trek years he joined fellow Trek alum Michael Piller on The Dead Zone, where he served as a writer and supervising producer.

Taylor penned such memorable Trek episodes as "In the Pale Moonlight" (DS9), "Counterpoint" (Voyager), and "Relativity" (Voyager).

Battlestar Galactica writers Bradley Thompson and David Weddle also told writer Maureen Ryan that the writing staff is currently working on the first scripts of the season, and have mapped out eight of Season Three's 20 episodes. Moore is writing the first two episodes of the season, which will pick up from where the jaw-dropping cliffhanger left off last week.

The series begins filming in April.

I love BSG! Pity it was shown round here (Australia) at 11pm on a Thursday night, horrible time. Yet I watched them all, can't wait for the next series, although I don't know if Ten will show it, I heard they picked it up, but that was about 5 months ago. BSG S1 was shown over a year ago..  frown Not looking good.

Yeah, the two episodes were fantastic!

"Get your fat ass out of here!" Me =  laff
Jesus, he is such a tubby now, haha.

The one thing I never was able to loose with the first 2 seasons was the feeling that ANYONE could be a Cylon, so I always have suspicions about everybody, it drives me nuts!

All the best characters are back, Sol was great.
Gaius too, he's still a victim of himself and the Cylons, poor evil fella.

Agreed. Best Adama-Apollo moment evar.

And I think it's official that Baltar can claim the title for the worst elected leader in history, fictional or in reality.

Well I certainly enjoyed this series opener more that a certain other series that began it's third season in the same week (so his real name was Ben....great)

Can't help feeling a little sorry for Baltar but I guess in some way he is paying for what he has done. Same with Tigh, perhaps he did not deserve to loose an eye but now he might start writing a relgious book teaching others how to get along with the Centari.....I mean Cylons.

Was nice to see Brother Cavel in it still. It is also fun to believe that even in a culture that was meant to of split off from our own many millenia ago, still managed to develope the use of finger quotes.




I am curious about a few things though


All in all looking forward to the next episode and hopefully they will do as they say and keep the season unbroken.

Agreed. That was one very cool episode of Galactica. It will certainly be interesting to see what happens to Baltar now.

This season has certainly helped build more compasion for Colonel Tigh, I really did feel sorry for him during this episode.

If they keep up this sort of quality then I will be one happy monkey.

Not more "Apollo so fat" jokes.   frown

That was a great couple of eps, cool rescue, lucky Mr. Gaeta, creepy Balthar dream about Roslin.   laff

Specifically in the last one, cool Balthar on the Basestar, Badass Adama, poor grumpy old Sol.

Also, nekkid Sharon model and bikini 6 model...   eek *fapfapfap*

Well Lost has (excuse the pun) lost out. Galactica is firmly my faveorite series currently on Tv

This series has certainly got darker. It has also become a little harder to guess the final 5 cyclon models, epsecailly since they don't talk about them apprently. My theory of one of them kinda got blown away, literally, well I guess he could come back.

Oh silly silly Baltar, you will never get to be imperious leader if you keep doing things like that.


It is true we seem to see alot more cyclon flesh than colonial...well Apollo does seem to like to walk about in a towel. Anyway some form of naked Tai Chi.........nice.

Moar Grace Park!

I'm horrifiedly waiting for them to reveal one of the key players to be a Cylon, noooooo!  frown

It'll be interesting to see where they go with the sickness story, and the child of two species story.
I'm guessing the child will be immune and will be the saviour of the Cylons, or something.

Damn, no wonder he's messed up everything.

And Helo is getting really annoying.
