    BATTLESTAR GALACTICA!!

    I am surprised there hasn't been a thread about this already. I can't believe the series is ending tonight. I will dearly miss this show.

    When I was a very young child, my favorite TV show was a kids-oriented TV show called Battlestar Galactica. Then I grow up, and as an adult my favorite TV show is an adult-oriented TV show called Battlestar Galactica.

    I'm in! Hell, I watched the original on prime time! Much better show this time around, obviously!

    It better be. I'll be ticked if they save some plot lines for a movie that will be released a year from now.

    I try every couple months but that is the exact and only reason I can't stand the show. Now if they came out with and edition where they would say ****, then i would definetly watch the show.

    What are talking about, that stupid show went off the air in 1979-1980 or so.

    Re: BATTLESTAR GALACTICA!!

    So, thoughts?

    It took me a while to come to this conclusion, but I liked it. At first I was expecting something more--like a lot more character deaths, for one thing. But each major character did get a send-off of sorts. There were a few overly sappy moments I could have done without (like Baltar's speech to Cavill basically ending the war), but I suppose they deserve a happy ending after all of the crap they all went through during the entire series.

    I liked the idea at the end of fast-forwarding 150,000 years to present-day Earth and raising the question of whether we're heading toward the same fate as the characters in the show. The montage with the robots was funny and kind of disturbing at the same time.

    One of my major geek outlets is gone now. Just about all I have left is Lost and Star Trek reruns.

    Not a chance. I loved that show back then, and you got trading cards from loaves of Wonderbread. The cards smelled like fresh bread. Yeah, I sniffed em. I was a wierd kid.
