Battlestar Galactica returns

BSG returns to the SciFi Channel from January 6 next year, with the final 10 episodes of Series 2. Even better news: a 3rd series of 20 episodes has been confirmed.

Excellent news. I can't wait for the next series of BSG to hit the market here. The movie (have it on DVD) and the series (want it on DVD) were very good remakes. Better, in my humble opinion, than the original.

The 1st series is already out on DVD, though maybe you can only get it from Oz at the moment.

p.s. the "remakes" are 10x better than the originals. You can watch the miniseries after the first 10 episodes of Series 2 and it still fits perfectly into the plotline. Marvellous stuff.

And like 24, its one of the few TV series to seriously address some big blogospheric issues such as torturing wannabe suicide attackers.

And the bad guys are monotheists who think force is a valid method to make everyone else follow their god.

OK. I'm convinced. Besides I'll need something after I finish Firefly.

Is it worth owning a copy of?

It's available here already, I've seen it advertised. Not sure how much though - could be ~$60

"Is it worth owning a copy of?"

Yes.

I've got the miniseries and 1st series on dvd from whitcoulls - quite cheap two.

Must say - you have to watch firefly afterwards because of the depressing nature of bsg.

Depressing?! How can perfection like BSG be depressing.

You sound a little obsessed with bsg AL ;p

Next question:
Do I need to watch the bsg mini-series before the tv series?

Yes, you do really. It introduces the key characters.
