    Great show. I watched it when it was all over and just binge watched it. Works better that way I found as the episodes lead into one another. Great Sci-fi show.

    This was a fantastic show that wasn't afraid to take chances and kill off multiple main characters.

    This will do you far more justice than I could, I forget some of the stuff in it.

    Anyone watched Caprica? I haven't, but I've heard mixed reception.

    Well obviously not ! I just watched the first episode of BSG. It might be on TV Eventually like when pick did Stargate but you can pick ty up pretty cheaply in a box set that includes everything.

    I don't know about where to watch that kind of stuff sorry!

    And I haven't watched Caprica. It wasn't very good by what my buddy said.

    I am one of the (apparently few?) who saw all of Caprica. Somewhat late in the show, it found a stride of sorts. Really, though, it was burdened by having a story that was too busy. The best comment I ever heard about it was on these boards.

    That said, if you are willing to sit through a pretty long-winded, overly intricate affair, they do tell a number of good stories, and explore some compelling concepts.

    The miniseries is the high water mark of Battlestar Galactica. Nothing else that comes before or after is as good, with the exception of a few scattered episodes in the first 3 seasons of the show. Taken alone, the miniseries is a masterpiece of science fiction. The more of the series you add to it, the weaker it gets.

    I'm one of the few (I think?) that loved season 3 more than the other seasons. I did, however, hate the idiotic subplot (or lack thereof) of Apollo in the fat suit.

    I didn't like season 4.5. They could have ended it at season 4.0 and it would have been great.

    You mean with everyone standing around on Earth, which is a nuked out hellhole. looking utterly crushed? That would have been the most depressing series finale ever.

    IMHO this was the best sci fi tv show ever. Star Trek generally takes top honors as greatest ever and such. Overall, BSG is just a far greater quality.

    Trek and Battlestar are tonally, very different. but yeah, Battlestar is definetly a seminal entry in the genre, IMHO.

    well I just watched episode 2 and it was very odd? a person was a cyclone sleeper agent it didn't work though but I still haven't read the missionaries so it probably tied in with that.

    I'm not sure I totally agree with that. In its defense the miniseries, which is really more like a three movie, was very good. When I bought Season 1 and Season 2.0 on DVD, the miniseries totally sold me on Battlestar, literally within the first ten seconds. Having said that, however, the miniseries only works as a pilot episode and isn't self-contained in the slightest. I would also count the Kobol arc, which takes up most of the first half of Season 2, the Pegasus arc, which takes up most of the back half of Season 2, Razor,the exodus from New Caprica, Starbuck's death and rebirth and the Battle of the Colony as definite high points.

    The miniseries was great, and the show was pretty solid up to and including the Galactica's rescue of the New Caprica folks. After that, I lost a fair amount of interest.

    The worst episode was a filler episode featuring boxing. And even that was entertaining.

    "Unfinished Business" is probably my favorite episode, especially the extended cut. I admit I'm a sucker for the Lee Adama/Kara Thrace relationship.

    My favorite is Black Market.

    I think I'm missing a least though.
