    I had heard some good things about this show, but was always a skeptic, as I never really cared for the old one, and a lot of sci-fi shows just don't cut it for me these days (save for maybe some humourous ones like Lexx).

    Well, I was wrong. My friend lent me the mini-series plus the first season on a burnt DVD, and I am in :heartbeat:.

    For those of you who enjoyed shows like the short-lived Space: Above and Beyond, I implore you to watch this show.

    As cool as the whole storyline is, I have a blast watching the character development. In the mini-series alone, I was surprised that I learned so much about the different characters in such a short time.



    So...CHECK IT!!!! I don't know if it is on DVD just yet, though. Check your local listings or download it or something.

    I tried watching this one time...
    I found it to be too much of a space opera...

  6. from the commercials alone i could tell the writing sucks. something about the enemy being able to appear as anyone of the good guys. led to some crappy writing on subjects that have been covered in many sci-fi shows before. they should bring back buck rogers.

    If you'd just watch the miniseries, you'd see how wrong you are about the writing. I'm not sure who the writer is, but he has done a pretty darn good job, in my opinion.

    Cylons do have the capabilities of appearing as a human, but it gets more intricate than that in a lot of ways.

    I hear that the next season begins airing in July, so people should get on giving this show a try!

    Bump because I finally finished season 2.

    You all should be checking this show out - from the beginning, though. Get the DVD!
     
  9. hmmmm, nope. I would rather watch Ghost Hunter reruns.

    Well, it's become a pretty big hit with viewers and critics for a reason.

    They're even launching a spin-off in a few months.
     

  11. What of Ghost Hunters? That would be cool but I cant see a spin off unless they call it Two Dudes that work at RotoRooter and that would be no good.

    Lucy Lawless (Xena) and Dean Stockwell (the old dude from Quantam Leap) are both in BSG.

    Yea..there was a BSG marathon a few months back and i watched alot of it. The story line is alot deeper then robots fighting humans. There was some deep seeded religous type shit going on..sort of like Halo.
