Yes, Exodus was great. I don't think the New Caprica stuff is being completely resolved next week, is it? I thought the producers said 6 episodes, but I'm not sure. Either way I just cannot go a full week without this show. Lucy Lawless is great in her role.

Is this show as good as I'm told?

Best thing on tv currently and the best in my memory. Absolutely riveting. I agree you should try to watch from the start. Eps are available via iTunes at about 40-50% less than DVDs at retail.

BTW: I think this show will see exponential growth in viewershp this year and may even reach the top 10 (I know it's a long shot but TNG did it at one point, even beating Monday Night Football).

Something I have got to wonder...

Would you expect NBC/Universal, knowing what the ratings have been like, to move it to broadcast TV at some point, where it can have a truely national (US) audience?

or is it too edgy/sci-fi for them to do that?

There have been rumours of that happening for some time now. I wouldn't be surprised as it makes sense for them. I only hope that they don't screw it up to make it "nice nice" for their rotation.

I just can't believe how great this show is. It's truly must see television and I can't stand having to wait for new eps every week!

and the quality of the acting and storylines just sucks you in even more into having an emotional attachment to it

^ I heard January 9th or 10th mate - but that isn't 100%

If you can't wait until then try the bittorrents.

Season 3 is, for me, the best series so far - even better than the 1st half of season one

just thanking 'maddog00' for the link to that website - most useful


would certainly be up for another chess tourny mate - though maybe best wait until after Xmas to get as many people interested?

Was it JediSage that organised the last one ? If so I'll ask if he's interested in doing another, or if not will try and get the info on how to start a tourny on the schemingmind.com website...

Yes, it was me. I'd be happy to set another one up, however we've lost so many people from "the schism" that I'm not sure how many would be interested. Perhaps a tournament between sites? I'm open to thoughts...

BSG American TV time slot news:

Time Slot Change

It's been said that ratings are down and bleeding, although I can't understand why. I'm curious to know what effect this will have on the Caprica spin-off.

There has been speculation, on the Stargate side of things, that Stargate SG-1 and Battlestar Galactica fed off each other in terms of ratings, i.e. Battlestar people tuned in earlier for Stargate and Stargate people kept watching the channel to see Battlestar.

When Battlestar went on hiatus and new Stargate episodes came on, its ratings took a hit, to the point that the show has not been renewed for its next season. Now, we are witnessing a Battlestar without Stargate with similar results.

^^ a chess tourny vs people from the other site could be interesting



and back on the BSG - thought the latest ep was great to watch - real emotionally engaging show, well acted, scripted and once again - leaves me coming back for more

hope the change in timeslot gets the desired effect too.

I have to say I thought this ep was the first mis-step in the series. The whole idea of using a boxing match to provide narrative on the first few months of New Caprica was a bit contrived to me. That being said it was still the best thing on during the week...
