New Battlestar Galactica thread- now that its over
What did you think? I was guessing a dream, but its not.

The other thing was the narration at the end regarding the purpose of the cylons- GENIUS!!

Can't wait until October!!!!

1. Freaking Amazing
I was frozen in front of the TV for the last half hour of the episode. I was completely unaware of the direction they were going to take. I'm speechless. October ............. Why? :(

7. They probably want to plug Dr Who more
and go through the entire series plus reruns.

6. to paraphrase (and other correct me if I'm missing something)
their purpose is to love the humans, and teach them the benefits of peace. They are to fill the function of God, by teaching what's right, loving humanity, and judging when we do wrong.

5. Still trying to digest it
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 10:49 PM by CatholicEdHead
Even though last week's Podcast hinted at this. I knew something big was coming but did not expect this. An occupied population with 4/5ths on the ground and a now untrained fleet off in the distance.

They are moving much of the action off the fleet and onto the ground.

The Cylon plan was brilliant. I want to know if that was really the first Sharon with Baltar at the end or Helo's?

Edit: They are not even filiming Season 3.0 yet. That will start sometime next month.

9. BSG has done in two seasons what Voyager and Enterprise
never could in their combined 11 seasons, be riveting.

11. BSG has always been at the B5 Season 3-4 level from the start
with the exception of maybe a couple episodes this past season (Black Market comes to mind), those are the exception not the rule. It also stands out more becuase the lead ins have always been the standard scifi formulatic SG1 and Atlantis.
