Default Battle Scarred Galactica-

I have watched like, 200,000 hours of the new Battlestar Galactica- and have lost interest.
Great prduction values/acting/story line- but I can't sit any longer than 15 mins.

I'm a riot at staff meetings......................


Could someone please tell me how the damn thing ends-

I got as far as the fleet reaching earth, only to find it nuked.

Who are the final 5?
Is Adama a toaster?

Can someone put a cap in Starbucks head ? annoying be-atch that she is........
and whats goin on with her ship disintergrating (witnessed by Apollo) and she rocks up 6 weeks later like , nothings wrong?

She's a toaster too- yea?

what about Sol and the chief killing off Chiefs wife?
and what about thingy- Baltar- did he end up like- the new messiah?

If you can't make it through viewing Space:1999 Season 2, then do the next best thing read and look at the screen caps from each episode...

I dunno...I didn't think The Dorcons was too terrible (despite the title).

The new BSG began really well - but that ending!
Why on earth (if you'll pardon the pun) did the lead cylon after exclaiming 'Oh $***!' shoot himself?
Just didn't make any sense whatsoever - and a ton of missed chances to tell a really good ending. They really dropped the ball IMHO.

I started watching the first time it was on the air, after watching about 30 mins of it, I then switched to another show. It was totaly a waste of time. It failed to be like the older BSG that was on the air back in the 80's. in my book it is just a waste of viedo tape and filme. That's where I heard the the guy who made the first BSG washed his hands of the newer pile of trash. so I have never watch any more, I did out my DVD of the fist old show and watch it instead.

After waching the so called "NEW" BSG, I myself turned off my t.v. and turned on another program. " Old BSG was good" " New bsg was trash."

Well I thought the new series was great.
If you want to continually live your life just living in the past, well go ahead.
Personally, at the time, I just saw BSG was just a cheap Star Wars cash in job. The same as Buck Rogers and another 100 programmes/films.
And it showed.
The annoying kid, the mechanical dog type thing.....just rubbish.
Sorry, but it was.
In the beginning I wasn't going to watch it because it was a remake of BSG.
And that ended with the glorious Galactica 1980
Oh My God.....worst ever!!!!
So, so lame.

Point taken

I remember going to the cinema to see the original BSG with my father, It was shown in SENSUROUND! and man, when those vipers launched-I thought I was going to be sick! It was sooo loud, I'd never heard anything like it before and since in a cinema. Sure the tv series was really camp and 'cheap' but I have a fond memory of it and still prefer the original viper, guns and helmet designs. I bought the new BSG mini series on dvd a few years back, but must confess, never saw the whole series. I enjoyed it, but (maybe it's my age) but it had none of the charm of the original, why does everything have to be hyper realistic these days? (except CGI that is ) It's called science 'fiction' for a reason ya know

Just a personel view
