What season is BSG in at the moment?  I loved the original series as a kid in the 80's and from what I've read in this thread, this version sounds really good.  Never managed to watch any of the newer shows, but I wouldn't mind starting from the beginning.

Mike, you won't be disappointed... come over to the dark side... of Galactica.  :)

Will write more of Ep 5 later... back to work  :-\

No Willrow Hood in '07??? What the heck?? I agree with the post about Bespin. There are so many cool figures to pull from there... hasbro can release tons of Vaders, Hans, or Lukes as long as they release some of the others like Piett (Escape from Bespin), Luke and Leia (Medical Frigate), etc. It's a little disappointing, so hopefully they'll get around to it in '08

I could do without the depressing stuff...
NJO is stupidly depressing, I stopped reading at book three or four - the storyline wasn't the focus as much as killing off main characters...

I really don't know what's in store for the SW TV show, but it's supposed to follow some of the secondary characters. I doubt that it would be like BSG (Which I love), because of its intense darkness (the almost-genocide of the human race... er, kind of sounds like the Jedi, eh?). Of course, the rise of the Empire isn't really a chipper event either. Jedi are still being hunted by Vader and stormtroopers, insurgents (Rebels) are being eliminated by Palpatine and the ultimate death weapon is being constructed...

But I'm curious how they are going to have a show based on background characters with the occasional cameo of someone important (Vader? Bail? Palpatine? Boba?). If the casual SW fan (one who only watches the movies) turns on the tube and sees Quinlan Vos, they're gonna be like "Whos' that?" and I think it would be hard for those people to get involved in getting acquainted with unfamiliar or new SW characters.

If they want to take something from BSG, I hope it's the writing. The characters are well-developed, the dialogue is excellent and the plot enthralling.

That's not my opinion, that's a fact, jack (black).


"**** all you haters.˙ I am going on record as declaring that The Departed is the best movie in the history of all time.

That's not my opinion, that's a fact, jack.


You forgot to put the "nicholson" after your 'that's a fact, jack'  ;)

The way they were going around doing what they thought needed to be done was scary.

Sad thing is that these things happened in real-life, too. It was good to see how Tyrol and Anders were conflicted with their participation while the others saw it as revenge.

Glad to see they didn't off Gaeta. I think he's cool.

Also, what is up with Six's change of heart with Gaius?? It'll be interesting to see what comes fo that.

I guess this will make me sound old...but what is a KOTOR?˙ Is it in the Prequels?˙ If so then NO.˙ If it is in the Original Trilogy..they yes.

KOTOR... Knights of the Old Republic... video game. Never played it myself. Having said that, I would not buy these figures personally, but I wouldn't be opposed if Hasbro made them for those who wanted them.

Battlestar Galactica,
24 (at least in January when the new season starts),
World Series (Go Red Birds)

Same here... though I might have to eat crow since Endor and Naboo waves are sporadically found.  :-\ I've found what I want, but there are other TCJD members that have yet to find them.

Agreed about the story. The brilliant tapestry of the storytelling of BG makes everything work better, but you do have to admit, after TPM, ILM did nothing new or breathtaking with the SW FX. In fact, that shot of Galactica getting pummeled with the camera pulling away and then Pegasus' barrage entering frame was a better FX sequence than any in SW film since the reveal of the Executor in ESB. If there is one better, name it.

The only sequence that came remotely close was the opening of ROTS, but that ultimately turned out to be a mess in every respect.

Agreed there. That was an awesome shot of Pegasus coming in to save the day. RotS did a cool bit with Cruiser, but then it was too much and distracting from the plot (let's take a couple seconds to pan from our heroes to show debris flying from one ship into another and then back to the heros... it was all about showing the explosions then advancing the plot... same with the buzz droids)

Anyone know if there are going to be any "catch up" marathons of season 3? I only recently got Seasons 1 and 2 on DVD (will finish Season 2 tomorrow), but I've missed all of Season 3 so far, and dont want to jump in 5 episodes late.

If you've got Comcast all the Season 3 epiosdes are On Demand. I'd think they do some sort of marathon over the Christmas break, but I haven't heard any concrete plans yet.

Really?! Thanks for the heads-up. I'll have to check it out!!  ;D
