Discussion of BSG should be used to keep the BSG thread alive, not this one. The season is over for Falling Skies. The thread is supposed to die, unless people can come up with other relevant discussion, and BSG debates do not qualify. The last few pages are full of BSG spoilers, which is inappropriate for a non-BSG thread which is read by people who haven't necessarily watched BSG.

I believe the digression with BSG began with a legitimate and relevant comparison between the series. Such discussions are not off-limits as TV shows are often compared to each other, especially within the same genre. It's done here all the time, usually without complaint.

I will grant you we probably shouldn't have gotten into the weeds with regard to certain details but it's hard to conceive of someone watching this show that didn't also watch BSG, but intends to someday. I sincerely apologize to that guy, whoever he may be. wink.gif

Drifting off topic on a series thread that is currently in hiatus anyway .. so what .. ?? Those that don't want to follow the thread now know full well the show is in hiatus .. turn off the subscription until next season gets near ..

And spoilers on a show that ended in what .. ?? 2009 .. ?? I guess every post on every thread and on the entire Web as a whole should be blocked ..

I wish I had a dollar for every thread, just on AVS, that drifts .. at least we did not digress into a completely different genre

Sorry I'm not marching in lockstep .. and it's time for a Romulan Ale .. tongue.gif

Yeah, it's kind of silly to complain about spoilers for a TV show that ended 4 years ago. rolleyes.gif

Enjoy your Romulan Ale Willie, and don't forget to brush with Feldercarb toothpaste!

That be me. I really don't care BSG was never high on my to do list and if I get real bored some winter I may watch it. If I do I certainly will pay attention to the final scenes because of this thread.

As noted in previous posts I'm picky about what shows I watch, and if the show does not grab me right off I drift off quickly. There are times I've come back after reading some comments but that is pretty rare for me. There is too much content out there for me to spend it on a show who's characters don't interest me and who's plot wanders to points I'm not interested in. I'm a little more forgiving with movies, though I had a hard time sitting through "The Dark Knight Rises" the other day on Netflix and in the end gave it one star. 3 hours of my life I want back. A TV show can consume much more than that so I meter out my viewing time. I really think that time has run out for this show, odds are will not watch next year unless there is a big turnaround in the writing. That is this shows ultimate failing for me, so many possibilities squandered.

Dammit, Jim, I'm a doctor, not a brick layer!

I'm pushing her as hard as I can, cap'n!

That boy was our last hope...

No, there is another.

E.T. phone home.

Would you like a piece of licorice, agent?

You are the Emissary.

Repeat and rinse...

Definite plus .. whenever I see Sorvino in anything, I think of "Mighty Aphrodite" .. which gave her the Oscar curse, IMO .. she wins and roles go downhill from there ..

Yeah, but she was certainly fun to watch in Fuqua's Replacement Killers. smile.gif
