BSG TOS: One Fan’s View

"About 12 hours ago" (in the vBulletin patois) one fan of the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica--blissfully unaware of the original series' tasty, stinky, running cheese--decided to take on the "real" BSG episode-by-episode, sharing his insights with the rest of the community in real time. His name, ironically, is Lucky.

Will he make it? I'm betting not. But he did survive the no-"craaaaap"-tastic Saga of a Star World, and that counts for something, doesn't it? Some of my favorite moments through Lucky's eyes:

  • "8:19 Good to see that even skilled viper pilots still need FIRE and TURBO stenciled in large friendly lettering on the throttle. It’s easy to forget."
  • "18:04 Well, in both series Starbuck kills Zak in a roundabout way due to negligence. Baltar runs. Had to be Larry—he always shoots down an Adama."
  • "33:00 Starbuck crash lands. I am not feeling particularly emotionally moved at the colonies bombardment yet. Well, except for when Boxey’s dog died. He didn’t ask for any of this craaap."

You can find the rest of Lucky's first-timer discourse in the forum. And you can, if you choose, egg him on to take another plateful of cheese and shove it down his maw for our entertainment. I'll be right there beside you. In fact, I think I'll go post some encouragement right now.

    Thanks for the encouragement Chuck. I swear on the grave of Boxey’s dead dog I will complete it. I still have to watch the second half of “Saga of a Star World.”
