Battlestar Galactica

I love the new version.  I'll admit, I never followed the old one very much, so it wasn't a stretch for me when they introduced the new, female Starbuck, or the Cylon Boomer, things that sent some older fans into a frenzy.  It's a well written series, with an excellent cast.  OK, so part of the appeal is the fact that Jamie Bamber (Lee Adama/Apollo) is just plain smoking hot, but hey, nothing wrong with a little eye candy now and then.  Seriously, though, if you haven't been watching this one, what are you waiting for?  Go get the DVD's, get yourself caught up, and start watching when the fourth and final season starts this coming March.  You know you want to...

Get show details here.

trust me. it was thought of the day the contest was launched. i was too paranoid about copyright infringements and such. i even emailed hubby asking if can write about it because i was going to use the word "porn" in it.  i also had some downloaded pics to show each character. but i panicked not knowing the copyright laws. so, here is as far as i got (by the way, the show is f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s. it returns in march!!)

Battlestar Galactica: Soft Porn for Geeks!

Okay. Sex still sells & I managed to capture your attention in a geeky suave kind of way. Let’s bring you to speed on my Sci Fi addiction….shall we?

I’ll begin with my favorite character to the least.

Number Six sizzles! My very favorite character on this series is Number Six (played by Tricia Helfer). She is a Cylon. Created by the humans to work in space on the 12 Colonies of Kobol. She is a charismatic, sexy blond. Tall. Lean. Great smile. Always has the f’me glow. The people in the wardrobe department must not believe in undergarments because this hot cylon chick never has any on. Her attire consists of some futuristic stunning & revealing gowns. Always.

Then there is Starbuck. A female. For those of you who followed BSG in the 80’s you know Starbuck was a dude. Not any more. Her name is Lieutenant Kara Thrace (played by Katee Sackhoff). She is a Vipor pilot. Apollo Adama’s best co-pilot actually. She can drink any human or Cylon under the table, can out fly the best pilots, and look at her wrong and she will give you and arse kicking you will never forget. OTB (one tough brawd!).

Dr. Gaius Baltar. Sexy. Must be the accent! Skinny little geeky doctor guy who happens to be doing the deed with the hot cylon chick, Number Six. Gaius becomes president after a vote of those on board the fleets. He does this with the help of Number Six. She has Gaius convinced he is not human, and that her God has better things in store for him. In the interim, ……

 

That is as far as I got. I never sent it in. But I'm glad you brought it up!!

Definitely caught Razor. It Fracking rocked! It actually was recently released on DVD, with a bonus extended version released as well. Original television release was 88 minutes, where as the DVD bonus footage is 104 minutes. This movie from my perspective is really created for the BG fan. It tells the story of the BS Pegasus ship & crew several months prior to them finding the Galactica ship. If the viewer is not a BG fan, they'll have a struggle following the plot as nearly the entire cast is in Razor. Before the TV version aired, it was shown at the theatre in a few cities (8) where they had the biggest fan base. In March '07, the SciFi channel upped its order from 13 episodes for season four to 22. In other words, 13-hours of episodes to 22-hours worth of episodes and that Razor being 2-hours is included in the 22-hours deal. For those looking to be introduced to BG for the hot chics....go check out Grace Park who plays Cylon "Sharon" as she graced (no pun!) the likes of Maxim Magazine Online. How many geeky chics have that title?! Http://www.maximonline.com/girls_of_maxim/pictures_and_bio/1108/maximgirls.girl

P.S. There is a great BG podcast you can download from the BG website or on itunes.

 I agree that Razor is more for the fan, but I do think anyone could enjoy it.

I thought it was fantastic! But am glad I didn't watch it first as I think there is so much context in battlestar that the big impact of Razor would be lost a little if you hadn't watched the other series'.

I didn't know that it was put in cinemas in some places, that would have been sooooooo great!

We caught it when it aired on Sci-Fi, but haven't picked up the DVD yet.  Since this is the last season, we're just going to wait until it's over and get everything at once.  Definitely a keeper, and I heard that once the series is over, they're going to be releasing the unedited versions of the episodes like they did with "Razor", not sure if that'll actually happen, though.  Even if not, it'll be fun to get the whole thing at once.

 I haven't watched Battlestar Galactica in quite a long time.  There's a movie coming out soon?  Am I right?  

 Will have to catch back up with that.  Maybe I am wrong about there being a movie for this one.  I thought my son was talking about it.  

 It's going to bug me now.  Someone, let me know.

Lynn, given what you've already told me regarding the shows you like, you'll love this one. The pilot was a Sci-Fi Network mini-series in 2003

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0314979/

In October, there was a made for TV movie on Sci-Fi, but it was kind of a side story, focused on a different ship for the most part. The 4th and final season will start in March.

[quote=G1ll]Apparently after series 4 its over! I am totally gutted if thats true but also havea lot of respect as I think they care more about the show quality and saying all tehy want to say than dragging it on for loads more series' like so many shows do adn end up ruining it completely! [/quote]

Although I'm bummed that it's the last season, I guess I'd rather see them end on a high note rather than turn into the last few seasons of Stargate SG1. Seriously, they were REALLY stretching after Richard Dean Anderson left the cast.

There is a video game, based on the mini-series, if I'm not mistaken. I can't remember if my boyfriend or his former roommate had it, so I'm not sure what system it was for, but I know they both got pretty frustrated with it, and I don't think wither one of them ever beat it, lol.

As for "hot chics", well, if you read what 007Martini wrote, you'll see that you've got options in that department. Wink

 

@007Martini- You totally should have submitted that, very well written! I've been itching to comment! Baltar.....somehow manages to pull off sleazy and sexy at the same time. You're right, it's gotta be the accent. #6...Wow, this past season, with more of them, interesting twist there if you caught the "Razor" movie back in October.

No lie, Boyfriend and I only watch about 4 shows on a regular basis, and this has been at the top of that list since it came out.

I'm Bringing Sexy Back!

*if you know the song, then you’ll get my tune*

“I’m bringing sexy back…

Them other bloggers don’t know how to act!

I think it’s special when you respond back,

So stick around and I’ll pick up the slack!”

that's right! Battlestar Galactica is only a few weeks away, and I'm bringing my BG blog back! just flipping through the sci-fi channel and noticed BattleStar Galactica Season 4 is going to premiere in a few weeks. so, i'm going to bring my BG blog back. i just started it at the very end of season 3, so i deleted it shortly thereafter. so stick around, i'll make a watcher out of you yet!

btw, i love all of the GUG bloggers....i just couldn't get the rhyme to work!

Is this chicken, what I have, or is this fish? I know it's tuna, but it… it says "Chicken of the Sea".
