    Well, maybe you should try reading at least a few damn pages (like the rules even say you should) when asking what's obviously a very common question.

    I believe they have some sort of webisode thing starting on october 5th á la season 3. This will lead up to Razor (a 2 hour movie).

    I'm curious about how Katee Sachoff plans on balancing Bionic Woman and BSG. After the season finale I thought she might be more than a recurring character from now on, but now I'm not so sure.

    Bionic woman won't be on tv that long. And I think there is some sort of season hiatus that BSG could be made in...

    Didn't they learn the last time about webisodes? Didn't that end badly ?

    I heard/read an interview with Sackhoff wherein she was asked about a potential conflict and she stated that if she had to choose, she'd choose BSG over Bionic Woman. So no worries there. (I'll try to dig up a link too.)

    Did anyone else watch BW last night and see Aaron Douglas's cameo? Otherwise, I agree with Roundboy that it won't be on very long, it wasn't that good.

    Aren't they done filming Season 4 of BSG right now? Which is the last season? I'm guessing her schedule is pretty free.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    Wasn't there a huge dispute between the writing guild & NBC ... something about contracts and payment.. They were forbidden to air or be worked on for the longest time.

    It was a huge clusterfuck if i remember correctly.

    Considering the rumors of Scifi splitting season 4 into two ten-episode seasons, I find this story about the webisodes to be entirely consistent with the network's penny-pinching reputation. (See also Farscape.)

    While I so completely dig Michelle Ryan, the new Bionic woman, and I even thought the pilot was pretty decent. It just seems like your cookie cutter episodic tv show. nothing really made it stand out for me.

    It appears the writers on these shows (Bionic Woman, and Flash Gordon) seem to think they don't need to put any effort into it, that they'll just remake another sci fi show like BSG and we'll mindlessly come a-droolin.

    Also see The Dresden Files. Bastards. Kudos to Flash Gordon.. because that show is just apeach. Much like ECW.

    Oh, and kudos to SCI-FI for inexplicably running Flash Gordon 4 minutes later the other night, pushing my Eureka rerun out of wack with my Tivo... causing me to miss all the plot points in the last few scenes.

    While I'm inclined to agree after watching the pilot, it overwhelmingly won its timeslot, beating out what everyone thought to be a surefire hit, the Grey's Anatomy spin-off "Private Practice."

    Will it drop? Who knows. But right now, considering Bionic Woman had no real lead-in or follow-out, I'm thinking it at least keeps a thirteen episode order, maybe even a whole season if it keeps it up.

    Honestly the thing BSG should have basically taught people is that episodic sci-fi really just doesn't work if you want to create something good. Whenever BSG is moving through an arc they tend to churn out very good episodes. It's the times it's tried to be episodic that they've really dropped the ball.

    Yet every single episode has been better than any episode that's come out of the Stargate franchise

    I like the stargate franchise, but I have to agree.

    I do think they are two very different sci fi shows though.

    One relies on humour and campyness with a blend of action, and the other is at least trying to be a realistic space drama with some action.

    It depends. I thought The X-Files had a decent mix for a long time. The concept was given to having individual "cases"/episodes working pretty well, though.

    Personally, I think the lesson everyone should be taking from BSG is that the audience simply will not tolerate one dimensional villains anymore. We need real conflict, and that means that the "good guys" have a reason for what they're doing, just the same as the "bad guys" have a reason for what they are doing and its not just "to rule the world har har har!"

    I used to fucking love Stargate SG1, but ever since BSG came out. All these menacing "bad guys" like the Ori and the Gouald are fucking juvenile to me now. I just simply don't look at sci fi the same anymore.

    The wraith, ghoauld, and Ori have about as much motive as the cylons.

    The wraith do it for food.
    The Ori do it for power.
    The Ghoald do it for hosts.

    I think you just made my point for me MKR. if you can sum it up that easily what the wraith, ori, and gouald are all about. They honestly can't be that fucking interesting now can they?

    us humans are complex, do contradictory things, and often don't make a whole lot of sense. You can't just sum up what we're all about in one line sentence. Why should the antagonist be that way?

    The cylons (as far as I can tell) are trying to kill all the humans and find their god, and the humans are trying not to get their shit wrecked while looking for earth.

    That's not deep at all.

    Judging by how long this thread has been going on, and that it's not the only BSG thread. I think a lot of people would beg to differ. Hell, even the stargate writers knew the goauld were boring, and had them replaced. sadly, they traded a one dimensional bad guy, for another one dimensional bad guy.

    but even by your own bolded admission, none of us really know what the cylon's true motivations are.

    I'll happily admit that I'm with VoodooV, I used to love all sorts of sci-fi tv shows that I simply cannot watch anymore because all aspects of production are inferior to Battlestar Galactica. BSG has ruined SciFi's all-day Andromeda and First Wave marathons for me now!

    If the "Cylons," as a group, all wanted the colonials dead and that was it, the human race would be gone by now.

    There are obviously forces beyond both human and Cylon comprehension at work here. There's the thing in Baltar's head, there's all this mystical prophecy mumbo-jumbo and there's what the fuck the final five have been doing this whole damn time.

    I'm shocked no one has commented on the Razor flashback yet. The first two minutes went by way too quick. I have DVR though so I didn't have to endure any crappy Flash Gordon other than what I had to fast forward through.
