Why Do You Love BSG?

Postby Bella on Sun Apr 27, 2008 12:00 am

All my LOST friends have started watching BSG, also. I've never seen a single episode, and have no clue what it's about or why they love it so much. So, I'd love to hear your thoughts on the show. Maybe I'll start watching!

Yeah, plus the various spin off tv movies.

Battlestar Galactica: Razor which focus on the ship Pegasus (all main characters are in it).
and the heavily rumoured (and possibly confirmed) prequal tv movie Caprica

Maybe I'll try and check it out after it's over, so I have all the time I want to catch up.

One of the greatest television shows. All the acting is great and all of the storylines are amazing. Edward James Olmos is amazing. And now they are making the prequel TV Show Caprica. I cannot wait.

I like it because, aside from the brilliant cast and characters, the superb writing and cinematography and probably the best special effects I've ever seen in a television show, but because I can related to it more than I can with any other Sci-Fi show. A lot of it is grounded with present day Earth. The ships don't look like futuristic war ships with lasers, they look like huge, bulky, industrial battle ships with missiles and nukes. They use Radar, telephones, machine guns and paper and not hologram rooms, teleportation and laser guns. It focuses heavily on character interaction which has caused some to label it as a soap opera in space, but the writing is so good it's just so compelling and the reason it has won quite a few awards and a lot of respect from the sci-fi and television community in general.

I'd definitely say get into it, and don't be put off by the mini-series. It's brilliant, but until you know the characters and story deeper a lot of people seem to not gain any interest and just say "Nah, I can't get into it". I feel the name damages the show... virtually all of my friends laughed it off due to it's relation with cheesy sci-fi and such. And some even quit before getting to Season 1, but stick with it and I guarantee within a few episodes you'll be hooked. Everybody I know that I've got to watch it properly absolutely adores it. Everyone.

With Eric Stoltz and Esai Morales both starring in this prequel it is definitely going to be a major part of the BSG storyline.
And therefore an awesome story to watch!

And that guy, playing Papa Adama's father is supposed to be more tough then Papa Adama, so that would be pretty sweet to see.

I've heard amazing things about BSG as well, but I've never had the chance to get caught up. Maybe I'll start getting the mini series off of Netflix...

Awesome show. Pretty dark & twisted right now, but that's to be expected at this point in the story.

This show should be on a major network. It is just that good.

I love BSG because:

1. the women are just as strong and capable as the men
2. the story transcends typical science fiction and is simply phenomenal
3. Helo
4. even the villains/antagonists are well developed, sympathetic characters
5. you actually get answers to the key questions/mysteries of the series
6. too many other reasons to list - watch it, you won't be sorry
How many times do I have to tell you John, I always have a plan!

Why do I love BSG?

Because it's the third greatest show ever. :)

The story is phenomenal, the character development is amazing, the CGI is out-of-this-world, it's honest, awe-inspiring TV. The show is too good to miss.
