Gods, that was a waste of my time. Almost as bad as Razor.

Caprica starts tomorrow on Sky 1.

So 'The Plan' was bobbins, was it? How disappointing...
I may be ugly and hate-filled but... wait, what was the third thing you said?

Pockets Filled With Matches are no more, but we still have copies of our e.p. 'If Time Heals You' for sale, if you'd like one

I'm not surprised really. I thought Razor was really poor. If I rewatch them again then I might just leave that out altogether.

Right. In bed, unwell. Pilot movie it is, then.

p.s. Battlestar is to Canada as Doctor Who is to Wales.

They even have a Scotiabank on Caprica...

I bloody well hope so.
The internet is full of baloney on the matter.
Have you heard something?

No, just hoping. Am watching it through for the third time. Will probably skip the webisodes and TV movies this time...

Caprica was fairly dumb.

Ah poop. 90 minute movie too. Disappointing though. And I watched the whole of Caprica.

I'm watching it at the moment, ten episodes in.

It's a tricky one. I'm enjoying it but I can see why it got cancelled, it's impenetrable unless you watch from the first episode. Very dense, five different plots that all seem as though they're coming to the same head...

Basically if you like Battlestar I would defintely recommend it, I'm just hoping it resolves and doesn't end on a cliffhanger!

It was ok. Mostly because I liked finding out about the prehistory of Battlestar. There's a clear directorial change after a hiatus and there's also a sort of epilogue flash-forward where they cram in everything that should have happened if it hadn't been cancelled.

I wouldn't watch it twice...

I couldn't stomach Caprica. I absolutely loathe it when SF writes try to appeal to a 'female audience' - it invariably makes things shit, and frankly I think if women didn't enjoy BSG in the first place, that's their problem.

Thanks for that! It was way better than I'd feared. I hope they make it a proper series!

Yeah, it's not too bad at all. I'm excited for episode 3 now.
Weirdly, episode 1 has 1.4 million hits now and episode 2 only has 400k. Does that mean everyone hated it or just that they didn't realise there were 2 episodes.
Anyway, hope they keep putting these up, and frequently. 11 minute episodes are just too short (THE GUILD).
Word on the street is SyFy are supposed to be putting it on the telly in 2013, although why they didn't just put it straight on the telly is beyond me. I know these things are complicated though.
BATTLESTAR!

That'll be why the ratings are down on ep2 then. The only 2 other people I've spoken to about it didn't realise there was another episode either!
It gets going a bit better by the end of 2.

ALso, how funny are the swears cover-ups?
They should just swear in a different language a la Firefly.
