I wonder just what Kara did to tick off Lee. 

I thought it was the fact that she was making out with that guy right in front of him. He looked none to pleased.

I thought I'd bump up this thread since the new episodes start next week.

Has anyone been watching the webisodes on Sci Fi.com?

I caught a few. Nice teasers and nice to see how people interact differently with each-other under different circumstances.

I've seen all the webisodes (just one more to air tomorrow) and they've been ok.  If you miss them, I doubt you'll miss anything during the premier.

Scifi has posted the first 12min of episode 3.1. It's a little hard to find.

http://video.scifi.com/player.html?dlid=30611

Upon loading, click the "Battlestar Galactica" link to the RIGHT of
the video player.
A new menu comes up listing available BSG content.
Scroll down, the last link is titled "FIRST LOOK".
Click that and you're good to go.
Friday cannot come soon enough . By far my favorite show on Tv since Farscape and Angel were both cancelled.

I want to watch this show and even tried to watch a few in the beginning, but I could not stay on board with a Female Starbuck, a White Colonel Tye etc etc...

My buddy burned all the episodes from the first 2 seasons on DVD for me (from TiVo) so I may try to play catch up.  Next to Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica and Buck Rogers took up most of my playtime as a kid.

I was a huge fan of the original series, it filled a void after Star Wars was released and enjoyed it at the time (impressionable 10 year old  :P ). My wife and I watch the new series religiously. I took it with an open mind and have been hooked. I was estatic when the web-episodes kicked off and have been following them. I like the small nods they give to the old series every now and then.

I love the documentary feel; the combat scenes are chaotic, much like real life.

Looking forward to the kick off Friday night.

I was pretty disappointed with how they ended last season.  The politic stuff just really stunk.  Jumping ahead a year helped to avoid the setting up though, I think they was good, considering.  I am still looking forward to tomorrow.

You don't like the political side of the show? Its actually pretty important to consider how the refugees of an entire civilization could maintain order. I love the way its handled in the show...and I loved the season finale.

I'm on board in a big way. In fact, this is one of my favorite shows ever.  Flat out favorite sci-fi show by far.

Odd thing is, I watched the original every week and was very wrapped up in it as a kid.  But the truth is, to me, the original is pretty lame.  For years, I heard that people wanted to bring this show back, and I always just wondered why.

I watched the new Mini series, and thought is was good, but not great.  Then I kept reading on Aint-it-Cool how good the series was, because it was being aired in the UK.  Anyway, the wife and I tuned in and fell for it hard.

While I love SW deeply, I don't really get into other light/adventure Sci-fi.  The Sci-fi I've read is usually very serious or at least non-adventure oriented.  This new show is, to me, what Sci-Fi should be.  Dramatic, exciting, challenging, scary, odd and daring.  I hope this show stays as tight as it's been so far.

So say we all!

Do you really want to know?

Spoilers below for Hemish in case you don't want to know....




Let's see; Tigh lost an eye, Starbuck has a kid with Lebon (unbeknownst to her,) her husband got better, Lee got fat, Boomer and Halo got married and Boomer got her commission back. Callie, Rosalind and Thom Zaric have been sent to execution and a rescue operation is in the works. Amazing stuff.
