I have completely revised my opinion of this series. When you come right down to the whole bunch of survivors was probably THE. WORST. humanity had to offer. A better ending would have had the Cylons winning and somehow preserving the children.

That's what I always hated about the show - Whenever they reached a decision point, they *always* made the worst decision available.

BSG is actually what helped me solidify my working formula for figuring out whether something is a drama or a soap opera. The variable is whether the universe is a character or not.

In a drama, things happen to the characters that are outside of their control. In a soap opera, events are always instigated by the characters themselves either as cause or effect.

In BSG, everything that happened to them they both caused and deserved.

That must have been cut by a well caffeinated hamster with a hatred for epileptics. Way too much rapid cutting. And as much as I like "Heart of Courage", it's a bit cliche and overused.

Meh, says this one. :-/

/and I am a huge BSG fan

The mini-series and the first season are sublime. Some of the best sci-fi television you'll ever watch.

The second season the show starts losing the plot and doesn't know what to do with itself. The last decent episode is the Pegasus. Many characters are killed off just cuz.

Third season, with its "jump forward in time" motif, should have also included a shark with that, for that is essentially what it did. Half the episodes are utterly unwatchable.

I didn't even watch season 4. That's how bad season 3 was.

The "Adama Maneuver"(storming New Caprica) is the ONLY time I have ever jumped out of my seat and screamed at the TV.  The raid in "the Hand of God" is a close second(All of the fighters ARE on the board).

The Bucket Drop is one of the most jaw-droppingly awesome moments in television history, imo.

That is all.

I don't think that's true in terms of the actual plot (which involves a lot of cylon attacks/plots and chance encounters). But the themes of the series pretty explicitly involved humanity being undone by its own foibles and questioning whether it deserved to survive. That doesn't make the show a soap, in my opinion.

thamike: Please find below what I would view as potentially one of the greatest tributes I've ever seen created for Ronald D. Moore's science fiction masterpiece Battlestar Galactica (2004-2009)

That isn't science fiction masterpiece Battlestar Galactica.


Just dropped in to make sure that was covered.

I'm glad I waited till it was over to binge watch it. If I had gotten invested over many years, I would have been much more upset about the lack of foresight and planning.

Hey look everyone, its that guy.

I'm afraid I'm 'that guy' too.

I thought it was a mediocre soap opera with a good special effects budget.


Add another one to the chorus.

Never got to the end... got stupid(er) somewhere in season 3, but I forced myself to keep watching. Finally gave up somewhere at start of 4. Started again a few years later, was planning on writing a paper on it for one of my classes. Still couldn't make it through the whole thing. Never wrote paper, dropped out of program.

any proper tribute should have All Along the Watchtower played on a sitar repeated endlessly
