    Default Battlestar Galactica

    I watched part of the first episode when it came out but it wasn't what I expected so I stopped watching.

    Anyway, it goes on to become a critically acclaimed series.

    The SciFi channel recently showed the two pilots again which I have Sky+'d but it doesn't look like they are going to follow it up with the subsequent series.

    So, obvious question, is it worth watching the pilots?

    Er, wot?

    Are you talking about Caprica? That is scheduled to start in January 2010.

    'The Plan' was good too. It makes me want to watch the whole thing again, but that was probably 'the plan' too.
    How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

    No.

    Like I said, Battlestar Galactica.

    Yes, it was very good, I have the DVDs, it kind of stalled a bit in later series for stories but never dropped in quality massively like 24 or Lost.

    I would say watch the pilots as they are good in their own right. They were never made to be pilots in the traditional sense.

    Not convinced about Caprica. The problem with any prequel - is that you already know how it ends...

    With a good plot, scripting and acting, they might pull it off though, so I'll give it a chance.

    I gave up on it in series 2.

    Too much religious type nonsense, and it got soooo boring!

    I just finished watching it (did all 4 series in about 3 weeks!) and loved it.

    I found the religious-type nonsense well written, because it provoked thought about parallels with our own world.

    It showed you how insidious religion and the sky fairies are, how it preys upon people, and ultimately rules their lives.
    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
