Re: BSG S4: Islanded in a Stream of Stars

So what is the final running length of the finale in total? I remember reading that even the TV version could be extended further, from three hours. I haven't read any more information on it though, because I'm scared of spoilers.

Re: BSG S4: The Oath

Well I don't want to comment too much on an off topic subject either, but it's refreshing to find a so many like minded people on here - but this is a BSG comment thread so what do I expect? I've never understood the praise or increasing ratings that 24 continues to get. Sometimes I feel like I'm completely out of tune with everyone else.

Re: BSG S4: The Oath

Absolutely right. Although, when I re-watched season 1 recently, it was still spoiled a little by having seen the same forumla used so often in the later seasons.

Re: BSG S4: The Oath

Jammer that's pretty much what I was going to post if I'd had time this morning. The tech aspects of 24 have been handled badly since about season 3. It's been one of my other gripes. Not only do we have the silly contrived plotlines, such as the CIP device, but the general idea that everything in the world of 24 is dominated by technology and you can't do a thing without being a technology expert.

Re: BSG S4: The Oath

I agree that Fox seem to be running 24!

Is "Sometimes a great notion" really a bottle show? It had some great location footage.

Re: BSG S4: The Oath

I think it was still an action episode, despite most of it being implied. I have to say I'm not a big fan of action on this show - at least not the gunfight variety - so I didn't find it quite as gripping as some people (I feel the same about Valley of Darkness). But I'm really interested in where this is going. I don't think we can rule anything out this late in the game - finding Earth in episode ten has opened everything up.

Jammer, one question: I've noticed you mention 24 a lot in your reviews, and I was wondering, do you still find it compelling? Personally I loved that show when it started but I've become really bored watching the same stuff playing out every single week of every single season. The shows really on autopilot.

Re: DS9 S4: Rejoined

Just watched this episode for the first time in years. Very good but I hated the long exposition scene at the start between Kira and Bashir that telegraphs the whole episode. This seemed to happen a lot after Ira Behr took the reins. Did he think we're all dumb and need everything explaining slowly?
