This may have been posted before, but at 14:44 in the BSG miniseries (beginning of SyFy series) pause and look at the left side of the screen.

Ah yes, the "Serenity" from Firefly. Apparently Ron Moore was a big fan of the show. I've seen the entire BSG series at least 5-6 times but it's time for another rewatch. smile

I'd be curious to know why your wife didn't care for the series. My wife simply said it was "too dark" for her and "too political".

It's not that she didn't enjoy it she just doesn't go for a re-watch, in general, as readily as I will.

My girlfriend LOVED the new BSG, up until season 3. After the first few episodes of season 3, we both agreed it kind of lost it. We watched it until the end, hoping it might get better, but in our opinion, it just kept getting worse. I don't think we'll be re-watching it any time soon, but I do occasionally pop in a disc to watch an episode or two. I didn't have my 65" set back when it was on, so it's nice to see some of the more effects-filled episodes in Blu-Ray with surround sound.

Fair enough. I know people who are fine watching a movie or tv series just once and moving on even if they really enjoyed it. It's nerds like us I guess who like to watch a series multiple times if we really liked it. biggrin

Supporters and detractors aside, there is no doubt that the series underwent some systemic changes with the very end of season 2/start of season 3. Between the New Caprica arc and the Final 5 arc, there were definitely some narrative and tonal changes. Some fans liked it some didn't.

I always meant to check out this series but still haven't. I watched the original in the 70's and am a Sci-Fi fan so I'll see if I can get the wife to watch. I have Peacock and see that's it's available to stream there if it's the same one you guys are talking about.

Here's the best analogy I can come up with,


Original 70's BSG: Geared for a kid and teen audience.

Reimagined BSG: Geared for an adult audience.

I'm just looking for things to watch until I can restart the Stargate Franchise without looking too much like I have an obsession.

If it were just me I would start season 1 episode 1 of SG1 immediately after the last episode of SGU..... wink

Some shows I can re-watch, some I can’t. I bet I’ve watched Rome 10 times LOL. This is probably my 2nd rewatch of BSG

I have the Rome bluray set and I've only seen it about 3 times. I need to rewatch it as well!

I've not re-watched much sci fi or really any show over the years, save for maybe Star Trek TOS and TNG. And then there's the Three Stooges. I love Curly. I've seen most of those episodes probably dozens of times. Idiots being idiots is hilarious.

I do need to re-watch BSG. I have an itch pretty bad, and they're not making anything similar in the genre to scratch this, for now.

Shame the BSG reboot of the reboot was shelved...

The official statement from Sam Esmail is that it was going to be a continuation of the Ron Moore universe but with different characters and different stories. It was not going to reboot anything. My educated guess is that the project fell apart due to creative differences between Esmail and NBC/Universal which owns the BSG property.

I know I’ve said it before but I think it bears repeating - the Colonial military is so hopelessly and utterly inept that I don’t know how they managed to win a single battle.

Probably about 98% of the population of the 13 colonies was wiped out in the initial cylon nuclear attack that you see in the miniseries. I would imagine the US military would also not be very effective if somehow 98% of the US population got wiped out.

Keep in mind that the proficiency of the Colonial military is driven by the dramatic needs of the story...

Weren't the Cylons originally slave soldier robots for humanity? Or am I misremembering it? If so then human expertise may have been lost over time.
