The teacher lady that Adama wants to bang dies, and it's sad as shit. I forget the rest. Theres some kind of resolution with the Cylon chase.

I had assumed she'd eventually be killed off. I'm sure there was lots of gravelly voiced lines of dialogue that I'd hardly be able to hear. I couldn't help notice that in season 4, her cosmetic surgery breaks the illusion, a bit like when Deanna Troi suddenly appeared with huge duck lips towards the end of TNG.

Hahaha that's funny, noticing the cosmetic surgery. Yes there was much gravelly speeches.

They are the 'ancient aliens', earth is the new homeworld because they crash.

  • Crusade (B5 spin-off) nice concepts, technomages! It stopped after one season and the viewing order is disputed (of the episodes).

  • Doctor who for some lighthearted fun, season 12 (2nd of the female doctor has a great start so far)

  • The Expanse aka 'le hardo sci-fi'.

  • Cowboy bebop (don't forget to watch the movie before the end)

  • Andromeda (canadian farscape-like)

  • Killjoys (Canadian firefly)

  • Dark Matter (I don't even know how it ended, but it was fun to watch)

For Babylon 5 it takes awhile to get going... you need your own imagination. It's such an epic tale.

Stargate SG-1, it's like the X-files, one episode sci-fi stories set in their universe, pretty decent watch (the spin-offs also) Give them both another go, will get you weeks of entertainment.

Ah, makes sense. I had thought that it couldn't make sense if they touched down in modern day New York and then moved in and happily ever after... So do humans then become a mix of both cylon and human?

Thanks for the list, I'll have to look some of those up.

IIRC: they spot primitive earth-humans and their own DNA is close enough to didlydo-it. They split the survivors up and that's about it.

I'm not sure of you like star wars, but clone wars is really pretty good even though it's a cartoon. It really starts to get going at season 3, and the character developments really begin to contrast flaws with Anakin/Darth Vader and his inability to let go.

The writers did a really good job, easily some if the best star wars out there.

Other than That, many of the new shows created today really date themselves using current day humor techniques, political agendas, etc. It's kinda rough right now.

Unfortuntely Star Wars has never been something I've enjoyed. The originals I can watch, the middle bunch were laughably bad (imo) and never even considered watching the newest three due to the agenda politics. Nevertheless, I'll give the Clone Wars a try. A friend of mine has spoken very highly of it, so it's worth a chance.

Revenge of the Sith was pretty good. Episode 2 was average, if you can get past some of the bad CGI and all of them you have to pretend there was actual chemistry between hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman. But the prequels are far superior to the sequels.

I don't consider the sequel trilogy part of star wars. If so, it should be called the rise of Palpatine, and Rey would be the chosen one. I'm not ready to let go of my hate just yet.

But give The clone wars a shot. The writing was superb, and they really show how Anakin inability to let go of the ones he loves eventually corrupts him, it really makes you empathize with the character because they're all decisions that seem like the right thing or at least grey areas. They also show the humanity of the clones.

That Gaius! He always seemed to be close to tears from season 3 onward. Wide eyed in astonishment/crippling fear, tears welling up in his eyes.

Just read the opening wiki paragraph on The Expanse. Sounds interesting, I'll check it out!
