It is simply, the best show on television.

It just gets better and better. Be careful about the DVDs, however. They released at least the second season in two parts, so there is a Season 2.0 DVD set and a Season 2.5 DVD set. One has the first half, and one has the second half.

That 2.0 and 2.5 bit burns me. Seems like a cash grab.

And while I think I have seen every episode of all 3 seasons (I think), I haven't seen the mini-series. If it's not under the tree next week, Santa's going to get frak'd up.

Crimes against humanity! The Blockbuster in my hometown has no BSG at all anywhere in the whole store including the “television” section that has Laguna Beach times infinity but nothing to do with Helo, Starbuck or any Adama whatsoever!

Thank God for the long tail (a.k.a: Netflix).

Anyway, did you guys see that episode where Helo and Apollo are boxing or what?

I liked that episode. I felt like it was an interesting way to explain what had happened with Starbuck and Apollo. That being said, I thought that it was in a weird slot this seasons. Seems like it should have been moved up a little earlier, as it seemed to affect the pacing of the season (but what the frack do I know?). My brother-in-law, who recently became a convert to the way of BSG, didn't like it at all.

Last week was the last episode before next year, when it changes timeslot and night to Sunday at 10 PM. Thank goodness for the DVR.

Adama had a great line about the people who work for you not being your friends. Wish I could remember the specific line.

I thought it was a great episode. It was a nice break from the main storyline that focused solely on a couple of key characters and their relationships with one another. Love vs. loyalty. Duty vs. friendship. I found it also conveyed the sense of frustration and confinement that those serving in such close quarters would feel.

By far one of my favourite episodes of the series.

I know it is not a new concept, but I think it would be interesting to do an entire episode around one of the other ships in the fleet. For example, one of the luxury liners that is now basically a cattle-car filled with the unwashed masses. It would be interesting to see the strain on the crew, the issues with keeping their FTL drive operational, morale of the passengers, feelings towards Galactica, etc.

That episode was a nice way to do backstory, but it also had its flaws. Not a good one for first-timers/new converts, either. (Which is perfectly fine.)

PS: You guys are totally missing out on the beauty of Helo boxing anyone, much less Apollo, btw.

From Sean Stubblefield
Bill Adama sure knows how to make a point in the boxing ep.

Like Curtis, I enjoy when the ancillary characters are featured and their experience explored. Adds depth to the fictional reality, and another perspective. I wish more shows/movies would do that more often. As TNG did in an ep called Lower Decks, where some junior officers are the central characters.

As for the beauty of Helo:
I'm strangely comfortable with missing out on that. Duala is more my taste. I'm weird that way.

Yeah....I'm kinda with Sean on that one. I'm sure Helo and Adama are quite appealing to the fairer sex (zing!), but I'll spend my time oggling Capt. Thrace, thankyouverymuch.

I'm kind of partial to Sharon, myself.
