    I just caught the first ep (I think???) well it was marked Season 1 Ep 1, the lead in must have been from the mini series when I haven't seen.

    Still, it was pretty interesting and I'm looking forward to the next episode.

    Anyone else watching this?

    Granted, I wasn't around when the series originally aired, and the few reruns I caught of it didn't impress me, but I like the dark feel this remake series has.

    It's not Farscape or Earth and Beyond but it's a hell of a lot better than Stargate. ;)

    I've been dl'ing the episodes that's been airing in the UK and I've really enjoyed the series so far; one of the plots is taking a LONG time to actually develop (the stuff on caprica, i won't say more) but other than that its moving along pretty nice.

    And Stargate isn't that bad :embd:

    Yeah it's good stuff. I like the tense setting. Still was there a miniseries or something that followed into this that I'm missing? I'm a little uncertain how the fleet has gotten themselves into this predicament, I'm guessing that the Cylons attacked Caprica and the Galactica and civie ships fled while the rest of humanity was killed off?

    Also, the Cylons are robots right? So the human looking ones are not biological but like Star Treks Data right?

    Yeah the mini series aired in december '03; cylons attacked the 12 colonies, galactica was the only surviving battlestar, the new president (former secretary of education before the attack, was like the 50th person on the line of succession) forced adama and the fleet to flee with all the surviving civilian ships instead of rejoining the fight (since it was already over).

    And yes the Cylons in this "vision" (however you want to term it) are robots that had been created by humanity, and the human looking ones are 'robots' but they seem to have a lot of biological functions (some think they're human, they can eat, etc.). They're probably more akin to Bishop from Aliens than Data.

    yeah, the caprica story line with Helo and Boomer takes a bit of time...post episode 11, it's starting to come to and end finally...thank god.

    the president is rather annoying.

    yes she is dying so with that she should be pissed that all the expert medical attention she could have gotten was eradicated.

    Wow just finished the first season and must say episode 13 was incredible, the ending was amazing. Too bad we have to wait a long ass time for season two to come
     
  25. BG is pretty good. Stargate is pretty good, but sometimes the acting lacks depth, and the plots can be a bit fuzzy. BG is more of a space opera than Stargate, IMO.
