Yeah, what is going on with Tory?

Do you think the 5 "judges" are the five Cylons? Remember in the mini-series (I think it was) when one of the Cylons said that Adama is a Cylon? Maybe it will all tie back.
Interesting theory. We did see five lights in the preview, so I guess anything is possible.

Can't wait to see how this plays out.

The end of Season 2 and beginning of Season 3 has some of the best episodes ever.

I have to admit I felt a little disappointed in the breakdown between Lee and his dad. It felt extremely rushed - a spur of the moment rash decision, and that's not something I'd expect from the Admiral. Definitely adds to the drama, though.

I agree to an extent, but I think part of the reason is that Starbuck's death is effecting both of them in negative ways, and it is fueling the fire between them more than usual.

I don't mind the attention for BSG, but this could be considered spamming.
Whoa! How'd you even think to do this? In all fairness, I'm prepared to discuss the subject with folks, and get them into it, so I really mean it as an attention-getting message, and if people respond, great. I also only post it in appropriate discussion areas. You know the rumor that this show will get cancelled after 13 episodes of Season 4 if it doesn't improve in the ratings, right? I love this show, and more people need to know about it.

I think spamming is putting up stuff to annoy people. This is getting the word out. I've managed to get at least one nice person on The Tonight Show message board to give it a go! I didn't know there was a discussion area here on this. It would be a shame if this incredible show got cancelled and formulaic stuff like Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, CSI, The Shield, and even Lost survived. I've just been trying to make up for Sci Fi's incompetence in marketing this as just another sci fi show with sexy people. It took me a long time to type that message and it says all I want it to say without having too many spoilers.

That said, I won't be seeking out fans on boards until after the finale because I'm scared as heck fans of the show will be discussing spoilers.

Thanks, bub. I have to say this board is pretty confusing for a first timer, though. So many sections with confusing names.

"Bub" can refer to a female.....Though I actually don't remember consciously thinking about your gender, it would be pretty funny for a male to refer to himself as a babe.....though I guess guys can be babes. I suppose when I answer someone on a message board, I'm unconsciously assuming it's a male. You caught me! Sorry.

Fair enough.

We have a small, dedicated BSG group here in this thread, and we don't discuss what happens until after the episode has aired, so we're pretty much spoiler free.

Can't wait for Sunday night, although it's gonna be a long wait after that.

Sorry I haven't returned in a while. I've been kinda stressed about personal stuff. I've also been afraid to read any possible rumors or spoilers about the season finale. However, I wanted to let you guys know that we have to get the word out on this show or it is very likely to not make it past Season 4, due to dropping ratings. In the words of James Callis at a 2006 convention in Toronto, "Genuinely you can proselytize people. People who don't watch it, don't see it, don't know... they're people who are missing out."

http://www.syfyportal.com/news423319.html

The show has gotten an order of 22 episodes, including a direct to DVD movie that will air on TV in the Fall.
http://www.syfyportal.com/news423435.html

I hope y'all have been enjoying the first part of the finale. I certainly have. I'm so glad Lee and Tyrol have been getting much more of their due this season, compared with the second! By the way, Baltar is innocent and I'll fight anyone who wants to argue with me!

Just wanted to post this new interview by Ron Moore on how he writes political commentary and realistic morally-ambiguous characters for the show. He also says, due to dropping ratings, this could be the last season. I'm very worried. It won't start up until January in 2008, so we have time to spread the word, folks. Let's convert some fans.

Also, I should be clear that, when Ron Moore refers to his work on Star Trek, he means Star Trek: The Next Generation, which he often criticizes. He has had nothing but positive experiences on Deep Space Nine, the most politcally-insightful of Trek (in many ways, an early incarnation of BSG in how it approached story themes and character). He even learned his open-minded managing style from the executive producer and head writer from Season 3 onward, Ira Steven Behr.

Just wanted everyone to know that

the finale will be 5 MINUTES LONGER than on average,

and to set your DVRs or VCRs appropriately to at least 10 extra minutes, so says Sci Fi message boards. I should have posted this sooner, but I forgot.

Anyway, it's great to have another discussion group. www.ateaseweb.com has a small one, too, but I've been pretty much the only one on atu2.com.

Deep Space Nine was indeed a dirtier, grittier Star Trek (Bablyon 5 is the same way), but I think Moore's work on TNG was just as good.
