    ...Do not forget, that BATTLESTAR GALACTICA starts on SCIFI Tonight at 21:00 ET/PT. Looks as if you're going to get two episodes back to back; '33' & 'Water'.

    It is your DUTY to watch this program, to ensure that a second season is made. SCIFI have already ordered 6 'backup' scripts for a possible continuation. So make it happen. Watch the show. You'll not be disapointed.

    That is all.

    :D

    I think they did a great Job with Battlestar Galactica. Certainly alot better job then with the show Andromeda but thats a rant in itself.

    Yeah, but what is it with all those sexy cyborg blondes named after numbers? ST: Voyager had Seven (of Nine), Battlestar Galactica has Six...

    Hehehehe... Oh, believe me, at 9:00pm EST my kids and I will be sitting on the couch in front of the tv with a big bowl of popcorn, satellite receiver on channel 122, big class of Coke, surround sound on, subwoofer activated and lights dimmed! :rock:

    so far, I'm very impressed. They actually showed it on NBC last Friday. My wife and I are hooked and I'm not a big fan of the sci-fi channel stuff.

    Yea, I saw that.. Does NBC own SciFi? I think that SciFi spent a boat load of money developing the series and wants to make sure that it's a hit..

    Unless you are talking about the original Lt. Boomer, Herb Jefferson Jr, he's just not my type...

    The beautiful Linda Park has brains too. She has a doctorate in psychology.
    She is not, however, related to Enterprise's Grace Park.

    Battlestar has to be the best SCI-FI show to hit the screen since SG1, I just hope they decide to extend it past "miniseries" status!

    Umm, you do realise that only the 2-part pilot was labelled as a miniseries?

    Sky have now shown 11 of the 13 episodes, and another 6 scripts have been ordered in anticipation of season 2.

    Correct - and you'll see more of him later in the series.

    Glad your liking it. The more viewers, the better chance of another series. :thumb:

    Ah ha! Apollo! Okay, so it's been 25 or so years since I've seen the original series. Still, gotta give me credit for remembering that! :hip:
