OH that show is SO my favorite. when it came out on DVD i had to have it.
Still waiting on the second half of the 2nd season to show up on DVD though, and i'm partial to Grace Park (wow) myself

Probably aughta (Spoiler) this thread.

I never manage to catch it on Sci-Fi, but I own the DVD's and love them. Did season 2 not end with them going to rescue Helo and Tyrol? If not, I want to see it before I watch season 3, which I will be DVRing.

Personally, I go more for Katee Sackhoff. Warrior women just do it for me.

It's proabably just me, but doesn't it seem that whenever the ratings are starting to drop they make someone else a cylon?

Maybe I'm just sore from them turning Starbuck into a girl :-/

No, the Helo/Tyrol rescue was the end of Season 2.0, 2.5 picks up after that. The DVD set for Season 2 is broken into two parts. Its a bugger. Its just gets crazier after episode eleven of season two, very political and very heavy.

The Show is supposed to resume in October, although without its strong lead in of both the Stargate Franchises, I am unsure as to how well it will be doing.
If they do try to cancell the show though, I will be on the bandwagon of letter writing that hopefully keeps it on the air.

they already cancelled it once. after season 1. it was the fans that rallied to bring it back.

thank god.

It wasn't cancelled, it was consistently Sci-Fi's highest rated show. It just had a really short first season.

Yeah, season 2 extends for another bunch of episodes after that. The season finale is SO good, especially the very end.

Definitely more of Season 2 for you to see. The season 2 ending is a huge shock, even more so than the mid-season send off. In fact, it's probably bigger than the end of Season 1.

As for losing Stargate, I think it will have an impact, but I'm not sold on it being as big as some predict. I only watched the Stargates because Galactica followed them, to be perfectly honest, and many Galactica fans I know didn't bother with them at all. I'm still sad to see SG-1 go, mind you, but Galactica is really the draw from where I sit.

This version of BSG, happily enough, has no history of threatened cancellation and a subsequent fan push to bring it back. It hasn't needed it. It was initially unclear whether or not the two-part miniseries would lead to a full blown series or not, but it went so well the series got greenlighted pretty quick.

I haven't watched it since the end of the first season (and don't really plan to watch 2 or 3), but I'm curious- have they explained yet just what the Cylon agenda is and why they keep pretending to try to kill the human fleet?

Partially. But the show only gets weirder and weirder as Season 2 progresses. Weirder in a good way though.

From my observations of Season 2, any guest star that's played a major role in another "cult" show is a Cylon. ;D

Hasn't had a rating drop yet. As for who's a Cylon, everybody is a Cylon! That or it turns out that its all just a dream that some autistic kid had. Thats the ticket. :)

Yeah, Battle Star Galactica is pretty much my favourite show of the moment, competing with Babylon 5 (series 1-4, not damn series 5) to be my favourite all time Sci Fi series (I haven't finished watching Firefly yet).

Sadly, here in Britain it's going to be January before series 3 reaches Sky One.

The 10 part Web series is a little strange, but I'm looking forward to September 5:

As long as things don't go Matrix-esq, I think I will keep watching for a good long while yet.

For all those confused as to the episode sequence, see below:

I'm with you guys and am really excited for the next season of BSG. However, I have heard a rumor that the third season is going to take us an interesting ride and that ride may not be one we (the fans) all want to go on.

I'm strapping myself in.

Edit: Sweet. Page2sniper!

anyone watching the webisodes? @ scifi.com?

just wetting my appetite for more!!!

I cannot wait till it resumes. And the webisodes are definatly great. I wonder if when season 3 is put on dvd if the webisodes will be included?

really? you just go to www.scifi.com and they load automatically before you even go into the site. i don't think it's just for the u.s. ???

Matthew
2006-09-10, 11:09 AM
Yeah, I have tried a few times, both automatic and directly from the site. The former goes through the process, but when it says it will start after a short advert it just stays there (I left it on for over an hour). When I tried direct from the site, it said I wasn't allowed to watch it (or something to that effect).

What browser are you using? * When I tried with Opera (my regular browser) it just sat at "Connecting..." and never played. * With IE, it worked just fine.

Just normal old Windows Explorer (which could well be the problem). I will try again later today and let you know...

The webisodes are apparently blocked to users outside of the US, which is dumb. I think they've been posted to Youtube, though, so you may try there.

Yeah, I thought as much. Thanks for the information, I will give it a go there.

Hey, some of our foreign friends got the first season of BSG before us, so I call that a push. :P

2006-09-15, 12:56 PM
so, what's everyone's take on the webisodes so far? (sorry foreign friends taht can't watch em)

personally, they are making me extremely anxious for season 3 to start. but the one from yesterday bugged me.

what's up with the celery? celery is extremely hard to grow, yet in the harsh conditions they have celery? sorry, it bugged me.

DocZoid
2006-09-15, 03:03 PM
As a foreign friend who is tech savvy.......or can navigate youtube anyway, I'd have to say they're quite good.

And yes, make me impatient to see season 3.

woot! we got season 2.5 last night and started watching again. those webisodes are just teasers, i'd rather watch full episodes.

btw, we watched the original bsg movie the other night...yeah, i just couldn't deal with starbuck being a guy and boomer being a black guy. it's weird!

(or fork or whatever she used) however, she should have washed her hand...ew. bloody steak. but i did like how tom zerek told roslyn (spelling all around there..) he wished she had won the election.

youve got to keep in mind that the events in episode 3x01 and 3x02 (Occupation & Precipice) take place about 16 months after the end events of 2x19 and 2x20 (Lay Down Your Burdens, Parts 1 & 2). time also passes since the events of 2x05 (The Farm).
