<p>So, what's the joy in watching a prequel when you know what the outcome is going to be? </p>

<p>Look, I loved the original series, really, except for the resurrection part and the very lame ending.  Loved it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>But, you KNOW what's going to happen don't you?  Isn't it a bit like the Star Wars prequels, but without JarJar Binks and that sulky brat with the anger management issues and a light sabre?</p>

<p>Did you hear that the guy who played Apollo in the first series (and that terrorist in the second) wants to relaunch BSG as it was originally imagined?</p>

<p>My daughter saw it (I got her hooked on it last  year), but i haven't yet.  She said the end was crazy weird.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Grizz...do you really like the first BSG?  I thought it was total cheeze...even when it was first on.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Then again...ABC wasn't exactly into making "deep" shows back then.  Nor was anyone else.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>There really is no comparison between the two.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>While I really liked Hatch as Tom Zarek...I don't know what things would be like with yet another BSG.</p>

<p>I disliked the first one, although it did have John Colicos (Baltar) and Lorne Greene (Adama) on it.  Gotta support my homies.  Hatch seems to think there'd be a market for it.</p>

<br><br><p>I was never a big fan of John Colicos.  Maybe it's because he was that evil Klingon...and, of course, Baltar.  Or, it just could be that he can't act.</p>

<p>It was funny...I got hooked on BSG (the recent one) and watched them all on DVD in about 1 month...sometimes staying up until like 2 AM and dragging myself into work the next morning.  Which, is not the best for your body, or your work, but it *is* a great way to watch a show like that.  I can imagine that if you had to watch it over 4 years, you really wouldn't be able to remember all the stuff that went on in the beginning.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I got my daughter to watch it, after I had seen the whole thing.  And it was kinda funny...because i knew what was coming up, and I could watch *her* reaction. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>At the end of the 3rd season, when Starbuck came back, and 4 cylons were revealed, I thought her head was going to explode.  And then when Dee...well, you know.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Since she's gone away to college, we haven't been able to see the last 4 episodes together....Not sure whether she'll like the end or not.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>TV like this doesn't come along often.  And, quite frankly...this show was too much for network TV.  Too dark.  Way too dark.  Too many issues.  It either would have been watered down by the networks, or just would have died (like the original series) because no one would have watched it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>With Caprica...about the 4th episode, I really started to like it a lot...when they got fully immersed in the virtual game world...but now...after the last few episodes, I'm not so sure. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Not being a religious guy, but certainly being brought up with it, and knowing about it, I see all the parallels they want you to see with the whole monotheism thing, the infinity sign looking like the "Jesus Fish", the resurrection, ...and we see why the Cylon's in BSG believe in a one God vs. many.  All that stuff.  Nice.  Goes over a lot of people's heads thought, I would bet.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have to watch last night's episode, I guess.  I hope it picks up, because if it stays the way it is, I'm not diggin' it.</p>
