    I already liked battlestar after seing the miniseries. the first two seasons were really good (but I won't hide that I would galdy remove one or two episodes) but the 3rd season is just brillaint.

    I mean this show evolved from star opera to tv show, that talks about freedom fighting (and how it is close to terrorism) collaborating with enemy and other social-concious things.

    I'm aware that they show it just because they belive ppl will like it one way or another. But still it's good that they said anything about that, esp since they're coming back to space now.

    any thoughts?

    It's my favorite TV series. The third season has been very impressive so far. Though the first two seasons were also amazing. I've recently heard that it my be ending sooner than expected because of the ratings. I guess the show isn't doing too good on the neilson ratings. so it might be cut short a season or two. though the dvd sells of it are really good, I think they are in the top 10 in dvd sells and like third in podcasts.

    Battlestar Galactica Season 4 Discussion [Spoilers]

    Spoiler Alert

    Turns out the recently leaked two hour special Razor will be the first episode of the fourth season. I just watched it today and it was incredible.
    The main focus of is on Pegasus, following flashbacks of the events of the original Pegasus crew through the eyes of the Kendra Shaw, appointed by Commander Adama to be his new Major. Another species of cylons experimenting on human flesh is found and a mission to blow up the testing facility is planned.
    The most interesting part of this special was when Kendra is given information about Thrace from the cylon ship's hybrid that may lead to the destruction of the human race. She takes this knowledge with her to the grave, but it gives the viewers a major insight into what the rest of season 4 has in store for us.

    Anyway, Kendra Shaw was brilliantly acted by Stephanie Chaves-Jacobsen, and I really hope to see more of her in other shows. She basically stole the limelight.

    Does anyone else watch this show? Any theories for season 4?

    BSG is quality throughout. Brilliantly written, covers so many issues and the cast is perfect.

    If anyone wants to check this series out let me know and I can PM you torrent, rapidshare or megaupload links.

    It will be amazing. Looking at the way they left off, i'm hoping Season 4 will start with a battle. But i hope they learn and make the space battles way longer and show them more, 'cus they're amazing! Too bad the whole thing of Galactica & Pegasus vs. Resurrection Ship focused mainly on Lee floating in space.

    2hr 15min until it airs on the Sci-Fi channel on the East Coast.

    The ending to season 3 was amazing, and I can't wait to see what it's like "there". Now for the long wait for the season 4 DVD box set. :argh So say we all.

    lol omg yes! i was still kind of stunned, and then slowly i thought that it was impossible of them to kill admiral adama in the first eps.

    that was actually horrifying to see good old adama dead.

    Great opening for the season. The 'cliffhanger' isn't really a cliffhanger for me, though, because I find it highly unlikely that she'll actually shoot. I love how Baltar continues to develop in interesting ways, and the four people in the 'we just found out we're Cylons' club seem to be evolving in interesting ways, too. I look forward to seeing how this season develops; the only thing that saddens me is that this will be the last one.

    WE'RE GOING THE WRONG WAY!!!!

    Sorry. Had to get that out of my system.

    I love the crisis of identity that Cara is having, and when she told Anders that if he were a cylon, she'd shoot him... :uwah

    It's neat how Baltar has gotten so caught up in his self-pity that he's coming out the other end now. Perhaps when there's no more fear of discovery keeping his sense of self-preservation in focus, he cannot help but start losing it like this. I just hope that he isn't boxed completely into this sort of cult leader role. I love the doubting, uncertain Gaius Baltar.

    oh man, i'm liking gaius baltar again after this episode. he's becoming a christ-figure and it's insane! never would have thought he would become that back in the first season.

    i found myself laughing so hard when he had his hands together as if he was praying, and Caprica Six was caressing his face.
    then the cult girl came and said, "your prayer.. it's so beautiful"
    lol

    I think I'm most stricken by the
    Spoiler:
    scene with Baltar inside his own head. What exactly did that mean? What's Six doing, assuming they're not the same being? And is the real Six going to get the same treatment soon as well?

    Baltar seeing Baltar.

    Interesting...

    Oh, and no one has anything to say about our lovable local crazy girl Starbuck? Roslin 'trying' to shoot Starbuck and 'accidentally' hitting the picture of herself and Adama was obvious symbolism for the next episode and possibly even the tone of the season as a whole -- the bullet shattered the glass directly between them, perfectly dividing the two figures. That seems to reinforce the thought that this whole situation with Starbuck is going to create an abyss between them, especially after Roslin finds out that Adama let Starbuck loose. It's not going to be pretty when the confrontation comes up in the next episode.

    there's just so much to talk about!! yes that scene betwixt the president and starbuck was great. starbuck brought up a lot of valid points. i was surprised the president didn't accept it. hell, roslin was just as crazy before

    Yes, but Roslin is a hypocritical bitch who can't see her own flaws half the time.

    ...her reaction to Adama using her own logic against her in the Baltar trial aggravated me. A lot.

    @that scene, honestly, at first I thought she had hit the picture on purpose. xD I couldn't figure out WTF was going on.
