    Good. You're entitled not to like it. No problem there. And others are entitled to like it. So there's no need for you to analyze other people's reasons for liking it. Accept because it's new??? That's ridiculous. There's plenty of new stuff that sucks. We watch what we do because we like it. Doesn't matter if it's old, new, borrowed or blue...

    Well, seeing as you went on about how the rest of us will accept anything and why, and told us how we like something even though it's no good...whose opinion are you accepting. :rolleyes:

    But, that being said, I find your ideas intriguing, and would like to subscribe to your newsletter.

    What i'm saying is that if you like BSG at all you should not be liking this poor imitation.then again there's no accounting for taste....or lack of it.

    I liked it when I was 11. Not so much now.

    My tastes are not so narrow. I actually enjoy things from quite a large range of genres, moods, types...

    Well,some people just don't know a good thing when it comes along.
    i however,do not welcome such broad variety.
    It enables too much abuse.

    Think of most of it as the visual equivalent of when Germans spoke English back in the old WWII movies. We're seeing the earthly equivalent of their speech, dress, ties, chairs, eye glasses, turns of speech, cigars, etc

    As for the FTL and mix of technologies, it's internally consistent with the logic of show. The original colonists came from an advanced civilization with FTL that experienced some sort civilizations ending disaster. They were forced to restart on 13 new worlds. Those new colonies would start from ground zero and have to rebuild an entire infrastructure. Even if you have the knowledge of FTL drives, cars, radios, laser guns, you can't build them without factories. Can't have factories, mines, etc without people. Can't have people without houses, farms etc.

    Rebuilding from that would take generations.

    Then, they advanced far enough to creat AI. Which revolted and kicked them down again. Giving them mild technophobia.

    Then again for the third time the AI's come back and nuked their entire civiliation.



    Or as someone else said. Its just a show. :D

    I will have no respect for the Sci Fi Channel until they make the monkey dog their official mascot!

    Just keep repeating. It's only TV. It's only TV. It's only TV. It's only TV. It's only TV.

    I believe it was the great George Carlin who once said... one knob adjusts the volume, and the other changes the #*&@ing channel!

    I liked the old series, and will still watch a few of the episodes to this day (many were pure feldercarb though). The new show is light years better, to me at least (and no, not because it's "new"... that's just moronic). But who knows, will there still be rabid fans of it 20 years from now like there is for the original series?

    I'm catching up on nuBSG via DVD (I don't get Sci-Fi channel, burn in Hell, Adelphia)
    I've watched through Final Cut as of this time.

    Many of you may remember me from the Enterprise threads, mercilessly pounded on the inconsistantcies and plot holes there.

    I think that trausch has vaild nits to pick.
    And the doctor constantly smoking does make me roll me eyes a bit.
    But none of this really bothers me when watching this show.
    It's compelling drama with three dimensional characters.
    (Note to self: never get Commander Adama mad at you)

    I can see why people rave about this show.
    Certainly worth watching unless you insist that Starbuck has to be a man... ;)

    Valencia,...
    Is this whole thread some sort of cosmic joke? Am I in 2003? I fully expected to find people bitching about the finale or the direction the show seems to be moving, not still debating whether or not this BSG has merit.

    Seriously doubtful,unless the I.Q. level of most of the culture has dropped that far by then.

    And i'm not debating the issue either.
    I am saying flat-out that it has none compared to the original.

    The original was cheesy cornball fluff for kids. This is the same baseline story, but for adults. End of story.
