You don't even watch Caprica so I'm not sure how you are such a super expert about it.

Also - the important thing about the First Cylon War was how it was part of a larger cycle and the how it ended. The details of the war itself doesn't really need to be explored. It might be interesting as a one off - but a whole series? I just don't see it myself.

Really? I'm not so sure about this one.

Honestly, Caprica is a much braver and interesting concept and genuinely sci-fi. This seems much more about the bang bang factor, which is fine, but feels like a regression rather than progression of the themes of the franchise.


Agreed, all the stuff with Soldiers of the One and V-World is brilliant, it's interesting journey and one I'm glad were getting to explore because it's making Caprica as a world much more three dimensional, more than I ever thought it was.

Caprica genuinely sci-fi?

I've been rewatching it since I've been working from home. Just about to start Season 3 and am watching the Resistance webisodes.

I really love the secondary/third tier characters like Duck and Jammer, it's a shame about what happens to them.

I've been rewatching a lot if BSG lately. Have spanked season 2 in a matter of days, just into season 3. Loving how awesome it is. It's good to watch it again and remind myself. Haven't watched season 4 since it aired so that will be fun.

Best of all, I've got a colleague into it. Actually convinced him that the whole series was worth a blind buy - luckily he's loving it - I'm jealous that he's getting to see it all for the first time but it's awesome having someone new to talk about it to. I can't wait until he gets to the end of season 3!

Speaking of which, I was thinking that that is the best cliffhanger of the series; the reveal of the Cylon members of the fleet, Starbuck's return and the glimpse of Earth. Made the wait for season 4 agonising!

I started watching BSG about 6 months ago. I'm now currently half way through season 4.

I have to say - it's amazing, but they fail miserably at their attempts at 'light relief'. I've had to stop watching it sometimes because it can be so damn depressing.

Season 1 was cracking, season 2 less so (although the pegasus saga was absolutely brilliant) and season 3 has been the best of the lot, though I felt a bit cheated when Starbuck, well, you know (I mean we actually saw it happen), and then in the final episode when, well, you know.

Season 4 has been really good so far - I think watching Lost first has hampered my thoughts of this season - the religious bashing can become abit tiresome.

Just finished it all now (still got The Plan to watch) and overall loved it. I found the first part of season 4 hard to get through (until the last couple of eps) but loved the second half.

I'd ignore The Plan. Me and the good lady found it very tedious and a non event, even though BSG is probably up there with our favourite shows ever.

Never been so stunned by a TV show's finale.

On to the last two episodes of season 4.

It's been emotional.

Absolutely brilliant ending.

I'm still struggling to get to grips with it being over (I probably wont watch any of the spin off's or webisodes).

SPOILERS FOR SEASON 4!

A finely conceived ending, I was so relieved when they found "earth", finally some respite after we (and the characters) had experienced such a depressing state of affairs. Especially after two failed attempts at trying to reconstruct their society on land. As I said before, sometimes it was so grim that I had to take some time off watching it.

I'm still a bit confused as to what Starbuck was - angel? dead? or could she just run really really fast?

Roslin's death, though inevitable, still packed an emotional punch (helped by the incredible score - click - I had a tear in my eye when she died, probably even when she tried to walk over to the volunteer side but needed help from Adama.

Excellent cast for an excellent show - and Bill Adama is one of the best characters in TV history.

Having said that though, there are flaws - some of the standalone episodes were annoying, simply because they weren't referenced throughout the entire show, for example, the black market episode. And some of season 2 was slightly uninteresting (well compared to the rest) - and the season was only really saved by the Pegasus saga and the ending.

I said before my gripes about Starbuck's death - but disregard that now, the writers made up for it in the fourth season.

EDIT:

Having read parts of this thread, it's interesting to see that some people have disliked the third season. I'd say it was probably the best of the lot (barring the final episode). In fact, i'd even say it was one of the best seasons of television ever, alongside season 5 of 24 and season 1 of Lost.

I also like that we are left with some mysteries (as opposed to loads, a la Lost) - such as the 33 minutes thing of the opening episode - which was bloody brave, and excellently realised.

Back to the final episode of season 3 - it was pants, and just didn't seem natural for the 4 crew members to hear music and suddenly deduce that they were cylons - it just lacked authenticity. And Gaius being lead away by the cult which eventually amounted to nothing was such a waste of a brilliant character.

There are other things i'd like answered but feel I should watch this show again in about a years time. I think it will be good to notice little nuances knowing who the cylons all are.

And I feel i'm definitely missing out by not having watched the extended cuts of some of the episodes.

I loved Daybreak - just as a piece of science fiction - so many ideas, arguements and concepts thrown into the mix and still landing an emotional punch. It was brave of them to have the flashbacks. Not something you would expect.

I would agree about Balters cult - they didn't do anything. But disagree about the music. I love that Watchtower is some sort of base code for the universe - and how it ties in with everything.

The best bit was seeing how they intergrated the Opera House into the finale - that was the sort of jaw dropping moment that took you by surprise and HeadSix basically lays it out to Balter at the end of season one. Rewatches are rewarding.

Glad you liked it!

1. I'm not saying the music was stupid, just that the four seemed to jump to a massive conclusion even though they didn't know what the song was. Perhaps it would have been better if the song was a contributing factor to their realisation. (I know they had the nebula as well, but something abit more obviously related to the cylons).

2. That bit was genuinely amazing - it just seemed so natural.

Yeah CORLEONE do it.

One of the few shows I know that goes from strength to strength - and season 1 sets the standard pretty high - so that's saying something.

Well i never listened and watched The Plan.I should have listened. The odd decent scene, but really seemed like a bunch of deleted scenes stitched together. On a positve note, it reminded me of how much i liked seasons 1+2, its been a while since i saw them

Half way through season one and loving it so far. Hard to talk about it on here cos I'm terrified of spoilers, but I'll just say it's very good so far and Dr Baltar's hilarious. "No more Mr. Nice Gaius!".

I'm foggy on the timeline, but surely the guy who played him in Razor's flashback scenes would have been the obvious choice?
