The ending will be just as disappointing.

well seeing as how the Moore version's mythos is a bunch of incomprehensible nonsense, of COURSE you could make it work with anything

thinking about rewatching this

obliquity of the ecliptic (rrrobyn), Monday, 6 August 2012 21:09 (four years ago) Permalink

i've been thinking about the series ending.

there are two starbucks, one alive and one dead. there are two earths, one alive and one dead. dead starbuck ends up on dead earth and alive starbuck ends up on alive earth.

no idea if they planned this but it's a nice symmetry.

get you ass to mahs (abanana), Monday, 6 August 2012 21:41 (four years ago) Permalink

alive starbuck does not end up on alive earth

Harvey Cartel (Shakey Mo Collier), Monday, 6 August 2012 21:44 (four years ago) Permalink

what, because she vanishes?

Just because she's a ghost doesn't mean she's not there. That's racist.

tbf, dead people don't walk around and fly spaceships either

hhmmmmm yes, it's almost as if her entire character arc makes no sense...

thats it!

I never knew there was a board game!

Just because she's a ghost doesn't mean she's not there. That's racist.

SMH at the racism against ghosts on this board.

three months pass...

my decision to rewatch this for winter 2012/13 is probably the best decision i have made in the past few months

i'd totally forgotten that the mini-series came out in *2003* - i do remember where i watched it and feeling the hype. it's still so good and so brutal! the part with the kid on the garden ship without an ftl drive, just before it gets nuked! whoa. harshness.
and the fate of the human race, floating in space! and 33 minutes btwn jumps! the humanity!
anyway. it's fun to experience this show again.

Did some recent skipping around thanks to Netflix. The series ending still falls apart big time, but sure started with a bang and then some. In retrospect not showing the fall of the Colonies much at the start was a brilliant move, everything felt more isolated from the get-go.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 28 November 2012 03:37 (four years ago) Permalink

yeah imo everything after sbux reappearance is meh but everything up to and including her absence is a+

BIG HOOS aka the steendriver, Thursday, 29 November 2012 05:45 (four years ago) Permalink

the stretch around the end of the second season/start of the third is seriously awesome

mookieproof, Thursday, 29 November 2012 06:10 (four years ago) Permalink

Yeah the whole last 1.5 seasons is middling, except for the muutiny/sedition arc in the last season, which weirdly reverted to pure S1 awesomeness.

mookie and simon utterly OTM.

Re the finale, I felt most* of the character arcs were resolved satisfactorily. It's just that the actual plot really really wasn't.

*glaring exception - STARBUCK IS AN ANGEL

I wish to incorporate disco into my small business (chap), Thursday, 29 November 2012 14:16 (four years ago) Permalink

Yes, yes, and yes.

The finale was *not* good, but it didn't ruin the show. I still want to watch the whole thing again sometime, unlike (obviously) Lost.

The mutiny stuff was probably a series highlight.

I aslo keep forgetting the Rosyln assistant character – in my mind I keep thinking he’s Chris Addison.

I just watched the pilot last night, and now i have the first season ready to go. It'll have to be a few weeks but i'm going to nerd out so much on this pretty soon. It is pretty great! Hot-shot space marine who's the best starpilot in the galaxy? Commentary on the consequences of war from the perspective of both The President and a oblivious, doomed little girl? An army of sexy killer robots? Hell yes.

Richard Hatch, a veteran actor known for his portrayal of a hotshot pilot on the 1970s science-fiction television series “Battlestar Galactica” and a political leader in a reboot of the series more than two decades later, died on Tuesday. He was 71.

RIP traitorous Zarek

I like this take on the character (copied from WikI):

After "Blood on the Scales", Richard Hatch commented on Zarek's motives on the Chicago Tribune website:[1] "I would like to say that never did I play this character as a villain nor did I think he was one and I still feel that way. After paying the price of 25 years in prison for standing up for human rights and seeing both his family, friends and cohorts killed by a suppressive government on his home planet he had every right to distrust the powers that be on Galactica that seemed to think that only they had the right to make decisions for the people. And since Zarek was blocked illegally by Roslin and Adama at every turn including from winning a fair election he had to resort to any leverage he could gain to assert some kind of voice in what had become an almost dictatorial government run by Adama and Roslin, who looked with disdain upon the council of the 12 and did pretty much what they wanted without consensus of the people." In his opinion, "Zarek, Adama and Roslin all wanted power for the same reason, to make a positive difference but Zarek still idealistically believed that the government should always be accountable to the people".

Chuck_Tatum, Wednesday, 8 February 2017 13:04 (two months ago) Permalink

Is Hatch near unique in this regard? To have played two distinctly different characters in two versions of the same story/franchise/whatever, where both were key characters for the story as a whole? (As opposed to simply a walk-on/cameo role in a reboot, since that's happened any number of times.) I know that he wasn't supposed to be recurring initially but obviously he became one.

Of course saying 'distinctly different' is shaded nicely by his quote there -- he, very rightly, played both characters as heroes according to their own standards.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 8 February 2017 14:50 (two months ago) Permalink

I certainly think his decades-long efforts to reboot the show before the reboot are remarkable.
