Honestly, I don't know that online fan presence has much to do with casting other than, if it was down to two people for a role, and one had a huge fan following, then *Maybe* that person gets the part.

I appreciated his thoughts on Caprica and I agree with him. I think I watched two episodes before giving up. I felt it either didn't connect to BSG or was screwing up continuity more than I could stand.

I'm curious too about your Fat Lee thoughts. I can't say I was a fan of the arc, though that had more to do with the execution of it then actually making Lee heavy for several episodes. But I never hated the story choice as many did. And I have to say Jamie's remarks on why they went in that direction - including why Rymer thought it was a good idea - helped make it all a little better for me. I still have some issues with how it played out once filmed (especially some of Adama's remarks to his son), but I get the choice better now.

I'm somehow happy to hear that about the casting process. Seems like it would be kinda unfair otherwise. I've always wondered if someone from production would really brave the Tumblr madness...

I don't think I would have stuck with Caprica with or without BSG connection, tbh.
