I liked BSG. I think I watched all 4 seasons in about as many months. Took a while to get used to, but I think it was worth sticking out in the end. Nothing like Lost for me, I watched an episode and a half and was so turned off I couldn't ever watch or listen to anyone talk about it again.

BSG also has a decent cover of one of my favorite songs, so that was always cool.

Like others in this thread, I have a significant other that was a fan, resisted it for a long time, then watched a few episodes and got hooked. I caught up before the final season aired and it was a very exciting Friday night ritual for me... haha, wowww, that sounds sad. Really though, I miss looking forward to new episodes of BSG! And +1 also on ruining a very big spoiler for myself early on, and for not loving the third season.

I hope this isn't spoilery, but Starbuck was my favorite character for the longest time, and then I ended up really not liking her.

Really love this show, I've started watching the old one too actually...

P.S. My friends think I'm an asparagus for liking Gaeta. He's one of my favorite characters! Also, if you watch the web shorts online he's in a gay relationship with Lt. Hoshi:

(which is super neat, but I swear he was one of my favorites before I knew that)

Also, I'm crazy about the Cylons, more specifically the Centurions (all the model versions). All the Centurion related stuff that happens in the latter seasons gives me butterflies in my stomach.

Today is my day off and I've been watching it all day to get caught up with Nick, but how I have and I can't stop. We had planned to watch more tonight so it'll take all my willpower not to keep going. I'm addicted, there I said it.

Battlestar kept me sane during 3.5 months of medical leave from work. I started saying 'frak' instead of 'fork', even in my internal monologue. I put off watching the finale for two weeks because I really didn't want it to be over.

Not that BSG is without it's hiccups, but there were only very few episodes that failed to catch my attention and most of them dealt with
Spoiler: show
the revolt started by Gaeta and Baltar. Those eps made me completely LOATHE Gaeta after that point.


Also,
Spoiler: show
WHAT THE FRAK HAPPENED TO STARBUCK? WHERE DID SHE GO? GAAAAH!!!!

I'm on season 2, episode 4 -a re the spoilers safe for me? I'm dying to read them. MUST NOT DO IT.

I aspire to say shiny and frak in everyday conversation.

I really loved this show until the second half of the series finale. But I'm not embittered toward it like I am with other shows that have ended badly.

I need to rewatch BSG because I have no idea what y'all are talking about. Also because I just want to watch it again.

*thud*

The eye candy above, plus the eye candy of Anders, Boomer, and Starbuck, are the only things that kept me watching towards the end. I definitely still count myself as a fan, but damn if the last ep wasn't a cop out. Looking forward to Blood and Chrome, though.

I have a problem.

Season 3 is where I'm stuck, so I'll be interested to see how you feel about it. Don't forget to watch the webisodes first!

I watched some and then realized that the descriptions (on SyFy) explained everything well enough so I moved on. Gaius' hair is driving me crazy - could he wash it and cut it please? MAN.

Spoiler: show
He's a despicable little turd. And wth? Fat Lee? I can't wait until Gaius is gone. At this point, I almost need more spoilers but I'm trying to fight the urge. At least I have Anders.


Also, Dean Stockwell! How does he look exactly the same as he did when he was on Quantum Leap? Ageless.

Okay, I don't think the tv.com episode guide matches up with reality. In any case, I'm on The Eye of Jupiter.

Season 3 ramblings and mutterings

Spoiler: show
Sure Lee, send your wife to go after your lover. That doesn't qualify you for world's biggest crasshole or anything.


I extra enjoy Hawaii Five-O now even though I swear Alex O'Loughlin said the side door was free of Cylons the other day.

eta: OMG!

Spoiler: show
I didn't realize Helo was going to shoot AthenaBoomer to get her to Hera!

We just started Season 3 last night and I'm going to have to struggle to keep going. It gets better right? Not so depressing and frustrating. I used to be able to make it through episodes I didn't like because there were always Starbuck and Apollo, but that's part of the frustration now.
