Get your BSG threads in order!

This thread is for the "clip-show" prequel movie that all the fans are trying to ignore.

This thread: http://www.greatsociety.org/forums/index.php/topic,4113.0.html is for the big screen movie that resets the franchise back to the 70's.

Also, I'm still angry about the finale.  BSG -- worst show on television!  I'm tempted to list my season one and two discs on Amazon for a dollar each.

If you and Matt didn't have eight thousand BSG threads, I wouldn't have this problem.

Let's MERGE them into Twilight/Julia & Julie/DEVASTATOR!!!!!

So as we draw near the October 27th release of the long-delayed The Plan, I'm finding myself getting excited again.  Will RDM redeem BSG?  Will The Plan explain/excuse the finale? 

I'm willing to hope, even though Caprica pretty much proves that everything good about BSG was a fluke and, in fact, it was the most embarrassing waste of my time ever.

So just finished downloading The Plan.

We have the last disc of V to get through... And neither of us are looking forward to more BSG shit.  But we'll watch it anyway.  Tonight or tomorrow.  I'll report back here ranting in all caps about how Galactica 1980 was better.

Haha!  Hoooly shit, this is bad.  It's not as bad as the finale... It's more like a Rifftrax of BSG.  Except the actors are doing the riffing themselves.

Best line so far:  "Does everybody remember that old war movie, The Tauren Line?"

Everyone murmurs that they do.

"Good!  Then this will be just like that!"

WAIT!  That's a fictional movie about people on another planet.  HELLO!  Audience over here!  We haven't seen the alien movie you just made up!  Um...hello?

Oh man...

"It's something I'm trying.  Explosives...in a pyramid ball.  With a detonator.  Like a homemade grenade."

Matt on FB adds: "I would argue that they retconned the first two seasons to be as bad as the last two."

Yes.  Jesus...

Oh my god...they're making fashion jokes.  One of the Cylons warns the other not to wear the same jacket as his exposed double, and the Cylon replies: "His jacket was burgundy.  This is teal."

What, is this Tomax and Xamot comedy from the GI Joe cartoon?

Whew...halfway through.  It's worse than the finale.  It's a fucking train wreck.  And, yes, it ruins the very last shred of dignity the show had.

Holy shit... So, while the horrible Caprica languishes without a decision on a second season, Moore is talking about ANOTHER BSG spin-off show!

Posting here since I can't see how it can be anything except another prequel.

That way, they're CONCEPTUALLY just repeating the same ideas that Caprica would have done (the fall of humanity and so on) so Moore can still tell the stories he wants to but it'll be set on modern day Earth so it'll be a literal mash-up of the Sarah Connor Chronicles and BSG.
