BBCA Discussion Thread: Battlestar Galactica Mini Series Pt1

Hey, remember when there was one Six and we didn't know.....


Welcome to the open discussion for tonight's premiere of Battlestar Galactica on BBC America. Squee is great. (Four Words: The Arms of Apollo) Critical analysis encouraged. Even a bit of mocking is OK. But, as always, be good. :)

I'm not sure what to do about spoilers for this one. The show ended over two years ago and most, if not everyone here, has seen the entire series so I feel a bit silly limiting people to a discussion of just what is on their screen. I'll let you all be the judge. Nothing like pondering that thirty minutes before airtime!

The Towel of Apollo. May have to do a special post when that episode airs. ;)

Wait … what? What is this show? Starbuck's a GIRL? What happened to Baltar's cape? And where's the dog? Hee. ;-)

Wish I could stick around to chat about this tonight, but I'm actually going to a party. Fancy that!

Have fun with the discussions. I'll be back tomorrow and respond to comments, etc. Also? Mmmmmm … Bamceps! *drools*

HEY! First timer here... You know I forgot they had these super long takes in the beginning of the show, that's really hard to do well!

Welcome! I was just reading the other day about how Aaron Sorkin created the 'Walk and Talk' on Sports Night. BSG seems to have it's own version of that. ;)

And to make the night perfect, BBCA aired the "Jamie Bamber: Secretly British" promo!

And now for the snapping of the baby's neck...

Where's your CAG icon I've heard about?

I used it on the post, silly girl! But I'll use it again JUST FOR YOU. ;) Btw, are you watching again?

I want to be excited that someone's showing BSG all the way through again, but I still feel so jerked around by the way it all ended that I find I can't actually watch it. I want to enjoy my tv, not sitting around waiting for RDM to decide that he doesn't give a rat's ass about my favorite character or character integrity in general. Anyways...

I hope someone enjoys this airing and if anyone needs the outtakes from the People towel shoot, I have them. All hail the Arms (abs, ass, chest, legs, etc) of Apollo!

Yes! I need The Towel outtakes...desperately! And any good rear end shots if you or anyone else has them.

And I have issues with the end as well, particularly XXXXXX's story. Won't say anything detailed here in case some haven't seen it all the way through. That's one reason why fan fic is so awesome bc you can write your own ending :).

"The Lady's in charge." Still one of my favorite scenes. Still gets me every time. =)

Let the Lee/Laura UST & shipping commence... :-P

Back to where it all began. Totally loved Lee/Laura's interaction in this one.

Have you seen the MegaCon sci-fi convention footage with Mary & Jamie on Youtube? She flirts with him all the way through and there are some great exchanges between them. Like this one (slightly edited)

Person in the audience: "This one is for Mary. Your relationship with Adama has really grown and changed.."

Mary: "Which Adama?" "I don't know whats gotten in to me today. I wanna make him blush. I love the colour of his sweater, I love the way it goes right up to his eyes" ((his sweater is pink))

Jamie: "I think it clashes when I blush"

Person in audience: "That would be Admiral Adama"

Jamie: "One day I'll be Admiral, just wait !"

Mary: ".........and I'll be ninety"
