    Ok, since this show just started I thought i would start a post for it.

    i have to say...i am really enjoying it thus far.
    The mini-series was great and the two hour premiere was just as good.

    anyone else tuning in?

    I finally caught the mini series when it repeated last week, right before the series started. On the whole, I'm interested. I have to admit, many of the characters seem to be poster children for psychological disorders, so far, and that's somewhat... odd. And those little ragged pieces of paper they use all the time... AURGH! YOU HAVE INTERSTELLAR FTL TRAVEL! WHY ARE YOUR PRINTERS OLD-FASHIONED BUBBLEJETS??? I look forward to the day that they finally run out of that ratty looking paper.

    I'm intrigued by the guess-the-Cylon game, though, as well as (hopefully) learning something about the Cylon motivation eventually. At the moment the story is all about basic survival... things should get even more interesting when they start actually searching for Earth.

    I can just picture it, though...

    Adama: And here, after our long, perilous journey... *insert motivational speech about all the difficulties they overcame* is the hope that we've been looking for: the thirteenth colony... Earth. Our new home.

    *tech person hands Adama a report on one of those ragged pieces of paper*

    Adama: *goes pale* WHAT?? What do you MEAN, the planet is covered with COMPUTER NETWORKS??? RUN! RUN! FLEE FOR YOUR LIVES!!!

    :p

    That's the best reason I have heard yet to actually watch this new thing... I have such fond memories of the old series that I haven't had the nerve to watch the new one yet [face_worried]

    I'm absolutely loving it. It has a very "Naval" feel to it --the detail is very good and accurate for a Naval vessel. So many of the details in the background are based in real life, which gives it a gritty, plausible feel to it. Kinda like the original trilogy.

    And the characters are pretty cool, not to mention the hotties. Heh. Lotsa fun. :) I'm going to miss watching this, but I'll have to get the DVD's of it when I get back.

    I'm loving it, too. With luck, SG Galaxy-Quest-Voyager will be cancelled halfway thru the season (man...I really can't stand that spinoff), and they'll show TWO episodes of BSG. Or maybe bring another sci-fi show back. w00t.

    I'm still not pleased with the CGI Cylons. I mean, it'd be less expensive to have live action better-looking robots with the classic "woom woom" noise. I know they were going for a less-human Terminator feel, but if G.I.Joe's Cobra can make frikkin' sweet looking android killing machines, why can't Cylons? Oh well. At least they can make hot women.

    Based on the initial mini-series, Baltar seemed like more of an unwitting accomplice, as opposed to the outright traitor that he was in the original series. Starbuck was a little too butch for my tastes. Boomie's a definite cutie, though. Now, the central Cylon hottie...

    I'm also curious how the father/son dynamic of Adama/Apollo will evolve.

    Sheppard? You mean "nappy hair guy?" [face_devil]

    I totally need a new Viper flightsuit, though. What is that -- pvc coated fabric? The scales on the back almost look airbrushed for the gradient look. Hmmm...
