Hmm interesting

I just realized she was on Andromeda. Seems she likes all this sci fi shows

Re: Battlestar Galactica.....

I cant be the only one watching this fantastic season. Surely there must be fans of the show on here who are thrilled with the way this season has turned out so far.

Re: Battlestar Galactica.....

It's too messianic now. The religiosity is drowning out the sci-fi. They're losing me, which is a shame because it's nearing the end.

I suppose I should take for granted that they have an ending planned. It's just a little irritating that they don't seem to have 20 episodes planned but 5 episodes of good stuff with 15 slow-*** episodes dominated by filler, proselytizing, arguments, and the crew sweating entirely too much.

I literally cried out loud, to myself: HOLY FRAKING ****! when the hybrid said "Jump!". Yes, i said Frak!

I caught up with the show when they ran the marathon on sci-fi before this season premiered after having seen only 'crossroads 1 and 2' last season. yeah, i was late to the BSG party.

it felt like i was cramming for a test or something but it was a really cool way to watch.

imo, all the episodes leading up to the most recent one got all the exposition stuff out of the way for the roller coaster ride we just buckled up for. cause, whoa! this past week's episode was one of the best hours of TV i've ever watched. like, ever.

love this show.

Re: Battlestar Galactica.....

Re: Battlestar Galactica.....

I started watching this show during my summer vacation and plan to be up to speed with the current season by the next show. The only reason I decided to watch this is because I saw a website with a list of the top 10 shows in the last 10 years. It pretty much read like my favorite shows with the likes of The Wire, The Sopranos, The Office, Lost, Arrested Development, South Park, and Bleak House. There were only two shows on the list I hadn't seen, one being #9, only ahead of Bleak House. The other was #2, listed only after The Wire, and it was Battlestar Galactica. So it peaked my interest, and it has definitely been an enjoyable show. Probably the best Sci-Fi show I've seen including Heroes and any iteration of Star Trek, although I don't put it on the same level as the others on the list, it is still great TV.

And I just saw the season finale for the 3rd season. Holy crap, that was one of the best hours of television this decade. Honestly, I saw the Big Reveal coming about 10 minutes into the show. There was just so much emphasis on the music, it had to have a big purpose. And I guessed Starbuck being the final memeber of the 5 too, mainly because it was obvious her story wasn't done yet, and there wasn't anyone else hearing the music. Who knows, maybe she isn't one of the final five, because it hasn't been officially confirmed, at least not at the point where I'm at. The only thing that made me kind of second guess my thought on those 4 being Cylons was the fact that Col. Tigh has clearly aged...while the rest could just have a memory force fed into them ala Boomer. Why is Col. Tigh able to age? I hope they clarify that. And when the big reveal happened, I was loving the production values and the infusion of Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower."

Anyways, I'm off to go see the Razor Flashbacks and Razor special. I have no idea what a Razor is, but I guess I'll find out soon enough.

Frak Banned

Hearst Connecticut Media Group has banned the word "frak" from their comments section.



This reasoning is a little weak for my taste:

Baltar didn't quite grasp the ending.

Re: Battlestar Galactica.....

Some guy is building a $20,000 replica of a Cylon Raider in his backyard.



Quote:
All donations above $20.00 will have their name engraved on the standing plaque that will be with the unit on display. Donations between $20 and $100 will, in addition, receive an autographed picture of the raider mailed to them, and emailed if requested. Donations from $100 and up will receive, in addition to the picture, a tee shirt and their name engraved on the plaque inside the unit, as well as on the standing plaque. Any donation above $500.00 we gain them an opportunity to drive and operate the unit at one of the conventions.
Looks pretty cool but not quite cool enough to donate.

Re: Battlestar Galactica.....

Edward James Olmos digs into what made BSG's Adama tick in fascinating interview



Quote:
What do you think is the most important aspect of command?

Olmos: A captain needs a true understanding of the situation presented before him. This gives you clarity of thought in dealing with the obstacles and the prolific nature of human behavior in an extreme situation. In Battlestar Galactica, there was a clear violation of humanity – I mean, the technology we created had reduced the human race to 49,000 people. Things don’t get any more extreme than that.

Question: What was your captain’s biggest challenge?

Olmos: To grasp the immensity of what had just taken place. My character experienced an incredibly difficult position he was thrown in. We were ill-prepared, piloting an obsolete museum of a ship with zero ordinance and we were tasked with the responsibility of defending the human race. We had archaic, analog technology against cutting-edge killing machines. I think my character was well-suited for the challenge because he was that type of guy, but he was still faced with the task of defending humanity against efficient killing machines with out-of-date weaponry, which he didn’t have enough of in the first place. The biggest challenge was the whole story itself.
