    The new one on SciFi?

    I had a major binge last week and watched all of last season in one night on the DVR, and have now caught up with this season. Wow. Earth was populated by Cylons before it was nuked. And HELEN was the fifth and last Cylon. Wow. Cool! I'll be looking forward to how they wind this up.......

    Battlestar Galactica nut here as well!

    It sounds to me like they're trying to introduce another Cylon... We'll have to see where they want to go with that one... FRACK!!

    Saul Tighe's wife's name is Ellen. Of all the ones it could have been, I NEVER figured her for the last Cylon... I was really thinking it was either Starbuck or Lee...

    We watched the first two seasons but became tired of it (and busy with other stuff).

    I mean, it's no LOST, but it was a fun show.

    I want to see how they explain Starbuck's ship on Earth. And a body in it!

    Come on now! How is she NOT a Cylon?!

    (I love this show)

    Ok here is the real brain frack. Ellen one of the original 5 might know how to create totally organic cylons that are able to reproduce naturally. Starbuck has got to be one of those.

    Glad the show is back on track.

    I'm totally geeking out!

    Quote:Yeah, me too. I am dying to know what the deal with Starbuck is. She's not one of the final 5, so supposedly she shouldn't be a Cylon, but then how do you explain the wrecked Viper and the body? Man, not only is it a good story, it's a good mystery!

    Back when i was in Highschool I had an art teacher who LOVED the show. Somehow I managed to have class during the time he had lunch (I was the only one in the class) and for that entire year we watched battlestar galactica instead of actually doing art projects. I also heard the soundtrack any day we weren't watching episodes!

    It was a good show and I should really start watching it again. Starbuck was always my favorite character, and there was one guy i liked too.

    Quote:Were you watching the old one or the new one? I watched the old one too, as a kid, and loved it then. As an adult now I love the new one, probably even more than the old one. It's much more about character and how people cope with ugly issues, and less space opera. OTOH, it's easy to forget how long the new one has been running--it's been a few years. And those years go by much faster now than they did when I was in my 20s!

    Just finished last nights. Hoo boy. Ellen was the architect of all the skin jobs and the final five were resurrected from Earth & came sublight to the 12 colonies.....awesome........can't wait to see where it goes from here! I got spoiled last week on just hitting the button to the next recorded episode--now I have to wait! [​IMG]

    Isn't Tivo just the best?

    Ellen says that she can't rebuild the Resurrection Ship without the others... With Starbuck's hubby currently brain dead, do you think they'll crack his head open and 'look' for the answers? That is, when the Bad Cylons catch up with Galactica?

    **Who comes up with this stuff?**
