Just started season 3, a lot of thoughts and thing to discuss here but I'd rather wait till I finish the whole series.
Damn though; it's like every female character on this show is designed to be as annoying as possible.
Oh and fat Apollo is just priceless :lol

I'm just working my way through this as a way of entertaining myself after exams. The episode "downloaded" is probably one of the best bits of TV I've ever seen!
Very good show, incredible how it is so consistently good, with only a few of the episodes (Scar and Black Market spring to mind here) which don't seem to move the show on very much and consequently are a bit boring.
Superb though. Great plot, great writing and superb casting both for acting abilities and hotness!


mmm now THAT is hot!!

I'm sorry, all I read was "BSG is the greatest show ever". But then again, that's all I can ever read about this show, cause it's the truth.

I've been very interested in seeing this show, so I'm getting the miniseries that preceded they did in 03, in a not so legal way, and see what's up with the show.

Bad idea. If you get it illegally, after watching it you might have nightmares of Edward James Olmos yelling at you about it. And you will cry.

Amazing show of course, only sci-fi show involving anything space ships themed to attract me like this, surely love it.

You saying that you don't like Starbuck? And I find Roslin kinda hot in a Milf-y way. Then there is whatsherface I had to look up that apparently isn't called "hot black girl from the command centre" (what I had been referring to her as) and is in fact called Anastasia Dualla, this one:

I liked Dualla until she dropped Billy so harshly, and he still got killed over her.  She got what she deserved from Apollo.

Yeah see when a character is annoying I can't see the sexy in the actress, especially bitch-president, she did so much shitty things -up to season 3- that I can't even believe Adama still likes her or respects her, I think I've said it before but I have never been more irritated a character or an actress than this person, her every gesture and facial expression annoys me.

Me too, I thought she was great in every way apart from her fanatical religious beliefs.
Pretty much the only female character I don't think is hot is (SPOILER ALERT) Ellen Tigh. She is just a bit skanky...

They were all super tough and super pissed off, women too. Starbuck was the least likeable female character, the president was just awesome. Her and Adama made the best enemies and the best couple.

I disagree, it's plain disgusting, but what do I know, I'm just up to season 3.
Boomer & Helo are my favorite couple and in close second comes Butler and Number 6 with their complicated relationship & not-so-clear connection.
btw now 3 episodes into season 3 and loving it.
P.S: Fat Apollo is not getting less hilarious hehe

I hate Helo so goddamn much.  And Roslin is really the only well-written female character.

No. Helo is awesome. In fact, Helo was (kind of) the entire reason the show went where it did.

Smells like there's a spoiler there so I won't ask what you mean but I 100% agree with you on his awesomeness.

That doesn't matter.  He was an awful character and I hated him.  He was a whiny bitch who had no character flaws and always did "the right thing" and didn't have a goddamn personality.  And he's at the center of easily the worst non-season 4 episode of the series.

Oh ok, well the only reason they went back to get him was because the fans liked him so much. And if they didn't go back and get helo they wouldn't have had what is arguably the most important character on the show which shaped entire direction it took.

Not really.  As much as the producers tried to retcon the plot in the 4th season, at no point did Helo ever drive a significant portion of the story.

His existence did. Sure he didn't do much more with it, but who knows if they would have done the same thing without him? Going back for helo changed the path BSG took.

Yeah, it did change things.  That doesn't make him the most important character.


Or a good one.  God, I hate him.
