You haven't answered my question....how is three years rushed for that turnaround? Getting raped in the ass, making friends with a black guy and realizing there's nothing wrong with it, hearing that your little brother on the outside might be going down the same path that you went down....I just don't understand why it's so hard to believe that these things could seriously change your outlook on life.

I concur with namkcuR. Which is a first, but, these things do happen.

I knew I liked Sith a lot when I saw it for a 2nd time and enjoyed it even more. "Moving" is the right word for the final sequences.

Brother, I'm not the one that made the comment in the first place, that was Saracene. I actually agree with you, and the comment you quoted was sarcasm.

Now that's a show that's jumped the shark, gotten back on the boat, jumped it again, and decided to become awesome again.

I've never had a weirder experience trying to enjoy a television show, but that's neither here nor there.

No, it's here and now, now.

Agreed again. Loved it (season 1 on DVD). Loved it more (season 2 on dvd right after watching season 1). Hated it (Start of season 3). Liked it (after the hiatus). Disliked it (a few eps after the return from the hiatus). And then was in awe of it at the end. (The last few eps were good, the very last one was insanely great).

I'm going to rent all of the DVDs this summer and watch them after I get through Galactica.

The finale was amazing, plus I love their plan on how to end the show.

To relate it back to Star Wars, rumor has it that Lucasfilm is trying to recruit writers from Galactica, Heroes, and Lost for the new live action SW show that's going to come out in '09. That would be fucking awesome.

As long as he does not recruit himself to write, it'll be great.

I watched season 1 of Galactica, and liked it, but season 2 did not do it for me, and I bowed out. Beav does not shut up about it, and despite his being a diseas.....um, scratch that....and, since Beav is so amazingly great, I'm going to give the show another chance.

I realise that it took three years; but for me the problem is not that I think that three years is too short a time. It's the portrayal of those three years and Derek's reversal that took place during that time that feels very rushed. I just didn't think that the film did a good job of conveying the passage of time and Derek's personal transformation. I suppose it's hard to explain something when it's mostly a "feeling" that things don't quite gel - all I know is that it didn't feel convincing for me.

I hope Lucas lets them use real characters, like Boba Fett, Palpy, Tarkin, or maybe a Vader cameo. Hell, what about a young Lando Calrissian kicking ass?

You know, characters that are relevant.
