Battlestar blows my mind yet again


Just wow.

That was definitely worth the long, excruciating wait.

Also, one of the more depressing season premieres you'll ever see. I did, however, help me see the similarities between "Battlestar Galactica" and "National Lampoon's Vacation": two dads go on a really long trip to get their families to the promised land (Earth, Wally World, same thing). When they get there, it's closed and they both go completely nuts. I would have given a million dollars to see Bill Adama punch a moose in the nose.

So, where to start? There were so many highlights, which I'll talk about here so as not to ruin stuff for those who have yet to see it.

What'd you guys think?

P.S. Can you tell I don't know how to do proper cuts? D'oh.

ZOMG that was amazing.

National Lampooon...LOL.

I agree about Leoben, that was not a good sign.

Nightfall said...

Unreal. My mind still boggles. It was so true to feeling though. Anyone would be crushed after all that, the reality of it finally crashing down.

For a second I thought maybe they would find a Stargate and have Kara be another dimension version of herself.

Maybe The Doctor can make it all better...

Nightfall, you're right. It was perfectly true to the feelings and devastation everyone would have been experiencing. I watched it again this morning and it hit me even more strongly. I can't wait to see how this all plays out.

And yes, I do think a timelord would come in handy right about now for them. :)

i know it was supposed to be depressing-and it was-but adama was hilarious. i couldn't help but burst out laughing in the giant living room filled with bsg lovers that were all completely silent, because we had been waiting to see it for soooo long.
like in the morge.

"i don't fracking know."
-wow, bill, wow.
you expect some great fatherly advice or maybe a tough commander telling lee "we still have a job to do."

but nope.
it's hilarious.
and the grafiti-frack earth.
