So where do we all stand on the season opener which aired last night on the Sci Fi channel. I won't go into specifics as I don't want to spoil it but I am glad the Sci Fif channel has gone HD

Thanks, VS, for not going into details - I cancelled my Sky subscription a while back and so won't be seeing any of the new series until it comes out on DVD.

If you are going to discuss the specifics later, could you do me a favour and put a big bold "SPOILER" at the top so as I know not to read it? ;-)

Ta much.

Gotta disagree with you there. Dr. Who rules.

But in all fairness, Edward James Olmos is a great actor and the new series, what I've seen of it, is pretty good. I was a fan of the original and found some of the changes annoying, specifically making female characters that were male.

I do like the updated look of the robotic cylons though and the fact that some versions can pass for humans. It's been nearly two years since I've watched it, so I'm going to have to go out and buy the DVDs to get caught up.

I recently got hold of a DVD package of the first three seasons of BG still unpacked at home, ready to be seen. So far I havenīt seen a single episode (neither on tv nor on dvd) and basically I donīt know what's it about, but I've heard so many good things (in this forum too) about it from people I trust that I think I'm gonna like it.

The thing is I've got a pretty big backlog of dvds to be seen, tv series and movies (not to mention books that are currently taking up most of my spare time), that I donīt know when will I be able to get at it.

To me the solution is self-evident: re-prioritise your backlog, moving BSG to the top of the list. You'll thank yourself afterwards. ;-)

I take notice of your advice but, to let you know, without counting the films that I still have to watch, the series that I currently have in my dvd-shelf right now are :
* The Shield (watched season 1 - to watch the rest)
* The Wire (watched season 1 - to watch season 2)
* 24 (watched seasons 1 to 5 - currently in the middle of 6th)
* Lost (watched seasons 1 & 2 - to watch 3 & 4).
* Deadwood (watched seasons 1 & 2) - anyone knows when the third and last is coming out on dvd ???
* The West Wing (watched 1 to 4) - to watch 5 to 7.
* BSG (havenīt watched anything) - to watch seasons 1 to 4.

Taking into account that I watch about 5 episodes per week, it's gonna take long to get on with the list, but I'll follow your advice and after I'm done with season 6 of '24' I'll pop in season 1 of BSG.

Talking about tv series, anyone can tell me anything about these three tv series : 'Weeds', 'In Treatment' and 'Mad Men'. Are they any good???

I saw the series finale last night. I also saw the trailer for Caprica, which will first be available on DVD and digital download in April. They also mentioned that The Plan will telecast in the fall. It's the Cylon invasion of the colonies, but from the Cylon perspective.

How far do you think Caprica will go story-wise? Do you think it will take us right up to enslavement and revolt, or stop some way before?

I hope up until Gaius has that fateful hot date with Caprica.
