You can rent the season 1 and 2 DVDs. A lot of real good stuff in there. ANd the mini-series plot as well, which was excellent.

He was the one with the dreadlock-y look.


On a BSG related note: just got my Season 2 companion guide in from the mail today. Yay! If you guys are interested in purchasing it, it's like 9 something on Overstock.

Just a note on that, if you apply for Chase's BSG Credit Card , after the first purchase, they send you the whole season 1 DVD set (inc. the miniseries). Just wanted to throw it out there for those who don't know about it.

Also, if people don't know yet... there are weekly podcasts of commentary on the episodes... you can get it via the SciFi website. They're meant to be listened to like DVD commentary I thought this was a super cool idea

And even standalone those podcasts are pretty cool to listen to when you're not near a tv and need your BSG fix.

Oh you know it. It's gotten to the point where I don't even want to go out on Friday nights anymore.

But next week I have visitors, so I'll be forced to go out instead of watching BG

If it was decided that all TV programs were going to be taken off the air, and there would be nothing to watch but BSG 24 hours a day on 200 channels, I'd be cool with that. Freakin amazing show. This weeks episode totally stepped it up again. And next weeks looks dope too.

Definitely amazing. We all knew Pegasus was coming back, but it went out in a blaze of glory. And I love how Galactica jumped into the atmosphere of New Caprica - total surprise there.

I just love the pace of this show - it doesn't miss a beat. And next week's episode looks delicious...

What I found so amazing is the when it seemed Galatica was going down, though obvisouly you knew it wasn't , but when the base stars were shotting it up, it was like watching a character get beat down, and you felt for it. And when it happened to Pegasus, same thing. It was so appropriate for Lee to say "Thank you" as he was leaving. Just amazing the emotions that the writers can get you to feel. Brilliant.

Oh, and when Pegasus showed up, you knew it was coming, but it was still cool as hell. Just showing up guns blazing.

The jump into the atmospehere was so cool. Just awesome. And I loved the angle they used to show it, of chief looking up and seeing this little ship way up, and then you realize what's going on. Ugh.

That wowed me too! I think I even said aloud, "Did Galactica just jump into the atmosphere?!?!?!"

Pegasus


Oh yeah, and Baltar has got endless tear ducts. I swear that man cries all the time

And what about the two kids? That blew me away, too... first that Kasey (or how ever it's spelled) was NOT Kara's kid and then that the Cylons have Hera!

And Adama shaved his moustache! wow.

Do you thin kJammer had something to do with Mia's death? He was supposed to escort her and Hera to the ship, but he made it, she didn't. And he had a guilty look on his face later on. If so, why?

And they way Tigh took care of Ellen. I hated her character, but was still sad to see her go.

Oh, and in the previous episode Anders is supposed to guard Hera, but....he didnt. Did her lie to Roslin? They made a big deal out of it, and then it was like it never happened.

I know! I was puzzled about the Anders thing too... I guess maybe he was more interested in finding Kara?

I definitely think there was some foul play going on with Mia. In fact, that was my first thought as they were heading to the transport. I said to myself, "There's no way she's making it to Galactica."

Ellen And then he looked so lost when he was back on Galactica.

I keep forgetting that Galactica has been orbiting without ground contact for like 4 months... a lot can happen during that time to distance you from the people you've known.

I just watched the episode yesterday and I've gotta say, they stepped it up so many notches from their previous episodes it wasn't even funny.

I agree, I hated Ellen too, but I teared up when Tigh had to take her out. It was so sad, yet you know it had to be done. At least she went out peacefully. I wonder how this'll affect Tigh now that he's back on Galactica. You see he's a broken man, but will it cause a rift between him and the old man?
You know, since when they got back onto the ship, everyone was praising Adama when Tigh has absolutely nothing really to live for anymore.

And re:Anders, didn't he have two of his "best men" to protect Mia?

I have a question though, if the Cylons are leaving New Caprica, and D'anna didn't set off the nuke, couldn't the colonials have still settled on New Caprica? By that I mean, after the cylons leave, couldn't Galactica have just have the raptors come back, survey the place and still settle? This is assuming that the cylons just left without looking back now.

But I doubt that the writers would've wanted to continue with the New Caprica storyline just like they let Pegasus go... what a sad day indeed.

Can't wait 'til next week when we see Galactica as they were back in season 1, still the ragtag fleet, only this time there's the Hague going on.
