How much for this?


Hold off on buying this, viper.

The first season DVD boxed set (NOT the Best Buy edition, the retail version due in September) will include the miniseries, so you'll end up with duplicates.

I've watched last Friday's episode and it is spectacular. Tackless a lot of social issues too.

BSG is supposed to be for kids, that is why we had a lot of fun with the old BSG and even the first Star Wars flick. BSG was always separated from adult television fare.

Now, they are turning everything to West Wing/NYPD Blue clones. And children lose in the process.  :-[

Getting itchy trigger finger... since the second half of the second season hasn't been shown yet until next year!!!

Season 2.5 will hit stores in September, and will contain an extended version of "Pegasus" as its first episode.  :)

The new series for me resembles the last three Star Wars films: slick, pretentious, and ultimately dreary. Also, a I pointed out in a previous message, it looks like West Wing Meets NYPD Blue in space: it does not have the sense of grandeur and wonder that was found in the original series. It makes me sad that those who grew up watching the original BSG will have kids who will likely not enjoy the new one, and that those who never saw the original or could actually imagine what a new series based on the old one could have looked like know what they're missing.

I know it's impossible, especially in a world where reality TV and money speak, but I'm hoping that they remake the original BSG, and this time with scriptwriters who had the same visions as Glen Larson and Gene Roddenberry. (In the original series, they were even going to bring in Isaac Asimov as head writer, if only the TV execs weren't so shortsighted.) I think Richard Hatch was on the right track when he brought the case to BSG fans and showed his trailer: back to the basics, with an old, distinguished actor to take a leading role (no drive to get young, sexy actors to capture a teenage audience!), with Benedict and Hatch to take on more mature roles, and storylines to capture the epic tale that began with the original: in short, a television program that will actually appeal to grade school kids and the original BSG fans and that will introduce "old school" television programming to teens and young adults.

Just discovered this show through a recent Cinemax marathon. Loved it! Mary McDonnell should have been the female commander-in-chief nominated for an Emmy instead of the overrated Geena Davis. Not only is it a kick-ass sci-fi series, it's even a better political drama than The West Wing! Plus, I heart Boomer!  :-*

The original was a wonderful adventure and could have done well had they had pulled the plug. Not only older fans but even some of the former actors (even Richard Hatch, before he started working for the new series) wanted to retain the spirit of the original but that did not happen.

When I was a kid, I had the Muppet Show and even Buck Rogers (in the same way dad couldn't wait to watch The Lone Ranger and Superman), but I always waited for BSG in the same way I waited for each Star Wars installment (and that was a three-year wait per film!). Now, I hardly think young kids will look forward to this.

I suppose my only consolation is that I was lucky enough to experience that magic (young kids didn't say things "rocked" then expect for "My Sharona"). The problem is that kids won't, for what we used to watch as kids is now being marketed to older groups.

Am watching the 2.5 set. It's good. I like the scar raider episode. Looks like shake-ups are happening all over the place. Someone died, someone got promoted...

Is anybody else watching the current season? If what really happened was for good, that was ballsy for the show; however, I was disappointed how it was set up.

Just ordered my 2.5 set from Amazon. Can't wait to watch the remaining chapters.

Is the latest season 3 showing na in our local TV?
