    damn i love this fraking show!
    It is by far the best i've ever seen.
    If you haven't heared about it and you like sciense fiction you should definitelly google it (or just buy it somewhere).If you like shows like lost or heroes you should give this one a try too; i assure you you'll be asking yourself how could you have missed such an amazing series for so long. . .

    I wonder if there are any other monkeys who like it as much as i do and would like to share some thoughts about it.
    Any ideas about what is going to happen? 6 episodes to go an i've got no clue.:monkeydance:

    PS: i know this thread is kind of useless, but i just saw the latest aired episode and felt the need to tell someone about the awesomeness of BSG

    i think i have a feeling what will happen..

    i new though that Earth wasnt going to be their savior...and i thought it was kind of obvious that Starbuck wasnt normal.

    i got into the show a few months ago and watched all the seasons in a few days On Demand

    Didnt Starbuck open a bakery or coffee shop or something?

    Original show was better. Way nerdier.

    I have not checked it out, but it's a big deal here.



    The executive producer is a Portland native.

    I got to admit, the whole "frak" thing was a little over done. One of the last episodes (2nd to last?) I could have sworn Baltar dropped an actual F-bomb when talking to his father. That was about the only thing I found annoying, and did nothing to stop my love for the show however. Great great show.

    I'm over the whole "aliens look just like us so we don't have to cough up any money for makeup / special effects" thing. I can just imagine the scene in the director/producers office when they were coming up with it:

    "Hey, I got an idea, lets have the aliens look just like people so then we don't have to spend money on costumes, makeup or special effects."
    "That's a GREAT idea!! Then, as a major (and frequently occurring) plot twist, we'll have some of the main crew be Cylons....."
    "...and not even know it!! That's brilliant, we can dry-hump this lame idea for as long as we want to, and people won't even know how mind-blowingly stupid it is."

    I put a couple of seasons on Netflix instant queue the other day. Mostly because there was a hot blond chick in the picture on the box cover.

    Did you ever take the time to watch an episode? It's not about humans vs aliens; it's humans v/s robots. . .

    They're creatures from outer space who invade and destroyed the planet. Just because their backstory was that they were originally created by humans as robot slaves doesn't exactly change that fact.

    Arguing about the difference between aliens and robots with regards to a fictional show.



    Yep, must be a holiday.

    If you want to see it that way then it is about aliens v/s aliens. . .

    I'm still going to watch it for the hot chick. I don't care if she's a robot. If you make a show with a really hot snail, I'll watch it. Just sayin'.
