Battlestar Galactica -Rewatch 2015

Battlestar Galactica (2004-2009)

I started listening to the GWC podcast at about podcast #3.
I was looking for anything that would discuss the new Battlestar Galactica series, and I found the Galactica Watercooler, later known as the Galactic Watercooler (after BSG ended) and later just plain old GWC.
I was hooked right off. And enjoyed listening to hours and hours of exciting discussions, humor, etc, etc.
I was sad when the podcasts did not continue after the summer hiatus in 2013. I held on, hoping the Crew was just taking a particularly long break. :slight_smile:
It was a long run, and a damn good one. And I am so grateful for that.

Alas, I too have finally given up hope, and all good things come to an end.
So, before I say goodbye to the GWC forum, it seems only right to me to complete the circle
with a re-watch of Battlestar Galactica.
Or at least, try to.

Would love the company of any fellow BSG-lovers.

So say we all.

After all these year, BSG is still my very favorite SciFi series ever.

Battlestar Galactica - the Miniseries

"The Cylons were created by Man.
They were created to make life easier on the Twelve Colonies.
And then the day came when the Cylons decided to kill their masters.

After a long and bloody struggle, an armistice was declared.
The Cylons left for another world to call their own.

A remote space station was built where Cylon and Human could meet
and maintain diplomatic relations.
Every year, the Colonials send an officer.
The Cylon send no one.

No one has seen or heard from the Cylons in over forty years."

Interesting- cold space.
Cold metallic, yet bronze-warm.

The older Cylon model on paper.
The new Cylon model - bigger, better armed, way more intimidating.

Commander Adama’s comments:

"…when we fought the Cylons, we did it to save ourselves from extinction.
But we never answered the question, why?
Why, are we as a people worth saving? …
We refuse to accept the responsibility for anything that we’ve done.
Like we did with the Cylons.

We decided to play God, create life. When that life turned against us,
we comforted ourselves in the knowledge that it really wasn’t our fault. not really.
You cannot play God then wash your hands of the things that you’ve created.
Sooner or later, the day comes
when you can’t hide from the things that you’ve done anymore. "
