Its a pretty awesome show. I didn't watch it straight through though. I saw various episodes, and then my friend convinced me to watch this 2-3 hour finale. It was incredible.

It airs on syfy, right? I think people are often turned away by their movies. "Mega Piranha" "Sharktopus" "Supergator vs. Dinocroc"

I get it from Adventureland Video here, it come with like six DVDs per season! But that makes it easier to watch.

Yeah great show, minus the overt Mormon references. :P

S3 was probably the best.

My favorite character is Lee Adama. Cute, and a great pilot. He is so interesting, like that prison breakout issue he had! So cool.

The best thing on television in a long while. I was sad when it ended, and would love for it to continue. Far superior to anything else produced on television in my humble opinion.

Meh, Heroes petered out after the first season. BSG: great show, watched all of through in about two weeks.

Thought the finale was awesome, but kinda a cop out; way too neat.

Cop out? I guess. Does anyone know if there would be another series to follow? The cast was amazing, the writing was great- it's hard to believe it was a Sci Fi production. I also found out that they make a ton more money on the rentals of it, than the network broadcast, but i'm kind of dopey when it comes to knowing this stuff.

They made a prequel series called, Caprica. It's fairly stupid though.

They actually had a contest, you make up the name and they'll throw a movie together that's based on it. That pretty much sums up the effort that they usually put into their productions; that's why BSG is such a surprise.

Wow. BSG is Mormon propaganda. Didn't see that coming.
