    I'm in the midst of Season 2 on dvd and I'm thinking this may just be the best show ever. Brilliant writing, perfect casting, superb acting, and dynamite production/direction. I have crushes on Starbuck, Boomer and Number 6. And Adama, Helo and the Chief all rock. The doc is hilarious.

    Agree/disagree?

    No posting spoilers!

    2006 called...they want their headline back. :biggrin1:

    Just yankin' ya, Silver. I'm glad you're enjoying it...I loved the whole run. The central motif of we have met the enemy, and we are they with the humanoid Cylons was brilliantly executed.


    And yes, I lost count of the fantasies I had of angry, animal sex with Starbuck all over the ship. :yup:

    I knew some frakker would chime with the smart comment. Just wasn't sure which one. :wink:

    I know I'm late to the party, but I just dig it so much that I had to share.

    Hell yes! Great show, well directed, great acting, interesting story. TV doesn't get any better than this.

    Helo is sex on legs too

    So say we all!

    Yes, the show was brilliant.

    Still getting used to Caprica, but it could get interesting. The Zoe character could be played zealous enough to believably bring about a new race of frakkin virtual STO's. We'll see.

    I loved the first season. There was more of a sense of desperation. Followed it on and off after that. Have the last episode on tape somewhere but haven't watched it yet.

    Caprica has possibilities. It will be interesting to see where it goes.

    The series was simply stunning. I was hooked after viewing just one of those simply beautifully orchestrated battle scenes.

    I say, bring the DVD's over, we will have popcorn and watch it through, THEN we get to dress up and act out our own version. :biggrin1:

    how it ends is a joke just to let you know

    cylons - "oh we decided we don't wanna fight anymore"

    galactica - "oh, okay, thanks!"
