I'd give it a mixed review. Too much soap opera, not enough BSG.

Like the last two seasons of BSG then.

Season 4 redeemed itself but Season 3 was awful.

Caprica = Craprica

or maybe Pissmeofrica or Astronimicallyannoyedrica are better choices.

The acting is great. The writing is generally decent... unfortunately the substance is lacking for me. The show oozes with "we want to push the proverbial television envelope." It's less about Cylons and more about the degradation of Caprican society which I find to be slightly annoying. Never-mind the whole teen-angst thing. Which most of the target audience is clearly over. The other thing that I hope doesn't continue to reoccur is Patton Oswalt.

Every week it aired--my friend and I (the other two that watch the show) would basically have the following exchange:

"Did you watch it?"

"Yeah"

"And?"

"Eh." *wince* "I didn't like it."

"You gonna watch next week?"

"Probably."

Acting is good? Ugh, I couldn't take how eMOting it was... and the lead girl/cyclon was unwatchable.

Why do you post after me every time so negatively? Is it real ddt in your handle or are you just happy to see me?

P.S. I wasn't talking about lil miss teen angst.

Patton Oswalt is tolerable in the United States of Tara.

He was okay in Ratatouille.

As a voice actor he's alright.

Just been re-watching "The Plan". If any of you BSG fans haven't seen this, I highly recommend it.

It helps put a lot of things in perspective. I think Edward James Olmos was great directing this.

Better than Razor (by a nose...)

I missed the Plan when it was on. I've never bothered to watch it. Thanks for the thumbs up and the reminder...

I think I'll give it a shot tonight.

Most of the series has faded from my mind, including almost all of the action sequences that I loved most. One thing that I think I will always remember, though, is the Galactica screaming down into atmosphere to rescue surviving colonists from the Cylons. That scene was amazing.

What a journey.
I wish I'd have missed the "second ending" last half of the last season.

Yes, the Adama maneuver was possibly the most rad thing I'd been on TV in a while.

Also the shipyard attack in Razor.

The scene of Lee floating in space and seeing the battle from a distance. (Based on an actual flyboy's experience at the Battle of Midway.)

Um, what does it say about us that what we most adore is things going boom boom boom?

The plan helps explain a lot of things - like how the whole boomer sleeper agent thing worked.

I've had a plan to make Boomer my sleeper agent for some time; ever since she stopped being a black man.

So, anyone here watching Hawaii Five Oh to get their Grace fix?

Okay, I've finished watching the series--started with the miniseries this summer, watched all three hours of the finale last night. Time to go back and read this thread from the beginning, I guess.

There's a lot of snark - esp about season 3...

Jeff Cooper – November 16, 2010 03:28PM Reply Quote
Looking forward to reading it--I was feeling pretty snarky about season 3 myself. The advantage of doing it this way is: season 3 was over reasonably quickly.
