this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
SO SAY WE ALL!
Oh BSG....you know when back when SciFi (cold day in hell before I refer it to that other name) actually aired original science fiction programming instead of WWE and TORNADOSHARKALLIGATOR d movies.
Which gets dvr'd?
Walking Dead re-airs at 11pm!
I'm sure B&C reairs right after too.
I'm torn. Could get an hour head start on BG, but since it's already aired on the web or whatever I feel like WD is more "current" for surprise happenings. Decision still TBD.
I guess you could always tape Talking Dead and deal with the hour gap.
Your DVR won't tape 2 things?!
BSG doesn't reair until tomorrow at 5pm.
I don't watch any shows in real time anymore except for sports...i'd rather watch something on the dvr while the new show saves and then come back in an hour and watch this show. Why watch anything in real time?
To keep up with the Twitters!
Only half-joking. It's kinda cool to hit up Twitter after a big Dexter or Breaking Bad episode and see the reaction of people from around the country.
I watched so much dvr, I would try and ff commercials only to realize I was watching in real time.
Bears. Beats. Battlestar Galactica.
I watched this on YouTube a few weeks ago and it's a solid story with a solid acting. I am excited to see it in the big screen in HD and disappointed that it wasn't picked up as a series.
In the cyber-world of snark, thanks for posting something that you thought others would like. Appreicate it.
man, i am just getting into battlestar galactica. I am currently working my way through whats on netflix.
I starting watching on Netflix because of mentions on the board and flew through the series. I can't believe I wasn't somehow introduced to the series while it was airing.
This is fracking awful. Every cliche possible, BRIGHT LIGHTS, and music so loud you can't hear what the hell they are saying.
^This. They went to the JJ Abrams school of lighting and writing. I was very disappointed. It had more in common with the horrible last gasps of BSG than with the excellence of the first few seasons.
live overseas and I didn't know this - don't get the commercials, etc. In fact I didn't even know this was in the works. I will download immediately! Thanks OP.
You can watch the entire series on YouTube.
With my avatar, you KNEW i had to register a comment.
I didn't see the Syfy broadcast, but saw the 10 websodes. Even posted a review of it when they were done.
Onto my review:
THIS IS CRAP. THAT IS ALL.
Its got the bells and whistles that put BSG over the top -- the action, the music, etc. But its got NONE of the stuff that made BSG what it was -- the characters. This Adama is 1% as interesting as Starbuck was, in her first two hours of the show. Plus, this moron actor admitted he didn't even WATCH any of BSG and intentionally tried NOT to be like EJO. HUH? You gotta be kidding me? The director LET him get away with that? So why even bother calling the guy Adama?
The characters were thin and obvious. The storyline had a couple good twists, but ultimately it made no sense -- they'd waste an entire battlestar, just to send up a fake upload they knew was meaningless? Its so stupid I don't know where to begin. Its like, the writers were saying, well we need something cool to happen, sooo....
And frankly, its now out of sequence. This wan't Adama's story in Flashback. And Number 6's voice shows up, totally out of line -- she was created by the Five, who don't appear to have shown up yet. AND, this gets me the most. The toasters, in Razor and Flashback, were cool because they were so junky -- you could beat one up with a crowbar, they sounded like toasters, etc. Low-end! But now, they suped them up and they look like, well, Centurions from BSG. Even more menacing, in a way. That is SO revisionist.
Just because you have CGI, does not mean you should use CGI.
I don't want this made into a TV show. Ugh. It will besmeech the reputation of BSG.
If they want to spin off something -- how about a modern-day story of what happened to the Redstripes, the remaining Centurions (not all would have fallen into the black hole), even the three angels we saw. You could easily pick up the storyline. OR, show us what happened to Cylon Earth -- who went to war there? Why? Why did they leave Kobol? Etc. So many things they could have done.. and they give us THIS drivel.
BSG = best show ever. B&C = fail.
