AND -- you are undoubtedly far more obsessed than I am! I'm not obsessed. Just compulsively watched it as quickly as possible --- not in one weekend marathon but about 1-2 episodes a day.

Ron Moore was the head writer for Star Trek: DS9 one of the best Sci-Fi series ever (my personal favorite). Its no surprise to me that BSG is such a critcial hit.


REALLY? See now -- right from the start of this I thought THIS is what Deep Space Nine wanted to be.... Star Trek but with everything fvcking up. DS9 never succeeding in going there. I very much feel this is DS9 full realized. You COULD take it one step further and have a full Pegasus series not just the one short episode.

Did anyone here read Good Omens? I felt like the last scene of the series was sort of pulling the that in there -- the two angels messing with society because they care -- but it's also a heck of a lot of fun.

Well here lemme try it again..... the survivors from the new series, that settled and re-named the planet Earth and their journey from the 12 colonies to Earth actually was the journey of the "13th Tribe" for the ORIGINAL Series (the one that had that AWFUL BSG 1980 that I saw on you tube :blink: )

And I like movie soundtracks... this show was like a 5-year movie... what can I say?

And PK it just scares me to crawl into your brain and think like you :P

That's a cute theory!

we need a time jump like the new Star Trek - then re-start the series with the same characters doing the same but different things and some not being cylons etc and so forth.

Are there any decent series out there now? They all started something along too fast and furious on top of one and other so a lot of really good ideas probably got sucked into a void.


Reading Terry Pratchett helps for sure. But it's fun to watch good series TV!

I like the idea of connecting the two shows somehow (well besides Richard Hatch :P ).... and it seemed like the best way to do so!!

Man it's hard to reboot a movie as perfectly as Star Trek did......

The only stuff I watch on TV now is South Park and Tough Enough.... so I ain't gonna be of much help till Blood N Chrome is on Sci-Fi.....

GAIUS!!!

GAIUS! I loved GIAUS!

I always feared I was like him in my youth. My female friends always tried to tell me I was --- I'm not though...

I can just hear my old roommate: I'm Laura Roslyn and you're DEFINITELY Giaus Baltar. But being selfish is a good thing! I wish I was more self-centered and superficial like you :)

bitch. but I love her.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

I actually agree with that, but it was more of a timing issue. Cable TV did not exist in it's current format in terms of original programing like BSG. The money for Paramount was in syndication on broadcast affiliates at the time of DS9 which meant far greater Broadcast regulations and censorship, plus in order to garner ratings you could not stray too far from the already established ST universe.

DS9 is STILL my favorite series and see BSG as just a logical extension of this with poetic license to re-write characters and not be inhibited by broadcast regulations.

And both shows have Ron Moore's footprint all over them....I'm re-watching DS9 on Netflix almost nightly now with no NHL around and you can see and feel it all over it :)

Now what I really came here for.....coming FRIDAY to a you tube near YOU :wub:



This is better news to me then the lockout ending would be!!!

Blood and Chrome was excellent.  It was good to see it uninterrupted.  I did watch all the webisodes.  I'd love to see it as a series. :)

WATCH IT FOR FRAK'S SAKE!!!!!! This movie is probably a feeler (though with Defiance coming out and looking high budget I don't know how many heavy effect shows Sci-FI would put out at once)

 

Blood and Chrome was excellent.  It was good to see it uninterrupted.  I did watch all the webisodes.  I'd love to see it as a series. :)

 

I agree fully....it felt nice to be back in that world again....and best....cameo....EVER.....at the end :)

I'm hoping to hell they keep it going, looks like Adama is gonna be some part of the Colonial version of GI Joe and I want to see if they use this series to give Caprica a real sense of closure too.....
