I'm starting a thread for those following the new BSG series that debuted on the SciFi channel last Friday 1/14 here in the States. So spoilers only for those episodes broadcast on SciFi. As a big time fan of the original BSG I hesistantly welcomed the new miniseries that debuted last year. I was impressed with the strong cast, great FX and storyline. Didn't care for the sexed up themes. With the new series debut '33' and 'Water' I've come to the point of accepting Ron Moore's re-imaging as a distinct 'step-sibling' to the original series. Of all the things shared the one that bugs me most is the name/sex changes of some of our favorite original characters...but its becoming easier to accept those characters as completely new. Really enjoyed how '33' continues with the blindsiding war action that puts torrid pressure on the crew and fleet. I was just glued for that hour. 'Water' continues with some character exposition for Boomer and delves into some of the great mysteries of the cylons/sleeper agents. We see too much of Baltar/Six. I feel they could have toned down the sex stuff while still showing the manipulative ways of Six. I do like the whole revelation of a religious motivations behind Six/cylons and the philosophical guilt banter between her and Baltar. All in all I'm liking the grittier storyline and deeper insights into the human condition.
