    The best show ever is still Buffy the Vampire Slayer

    I missed out on that series. I'm not sure if you are joking or not but I think I heard this was actually a good series. Then there was a spinoff series as well right? Usually when there's a spinoff, the original was pretty good.... X-Files was another classic series....

        OK, GY, I'll give it a try. My son has the whole thing, so I'll borrow it from him. He loved it, like AG, but I never believed him when he said I'd like it.</p>[/quote]

        like I said, aside from a few smutty moments the story is pretty intriguing. You'll definitely be using the noodle as you try to figure out who is who and what is what.

        space combat is similar to WWII style dogfights including the capital ships broadsiding each other which I really liked.

        AG:
        you said you only saw a few episodes of the original BSG? I saw just about everyone as a kid and I remember the disco music and some of the campy things of the time and despite that you must understand that is/was a large part of my misgivings with the redux.

        I imagine this to be similar to Star Trek the Original Series (Kirk) to The Next Generation (Picard)...which I saw a some of the Original and TNG but didn't really like TNG til avout season 4 or 5 and then Deep Space 9 and Voyager to a degree.

        Funny story about ST Voyager.
        me and my buddies used to watch it right?
        well Tuvok was me, my boy Al was Ensign Kim (cause they both are Korean), the two (paternal/maternal) brothers were Neelix and Paris...good times *sigh*

        Good going GY!!! It will be hard to put this thing down, you will have many many weekends of watching BSG (if that's when you plan on watching them)....

        If you go back 1000 pages or so, you could all see me and JG talking about BSG when it was still airing live....you could even tell back then we were excited about it....

        Good thing it's hidden pages back though so nothing gets spoiled.

        The new Cylons does borrow from the Terminator world but that is pretty well explained.....

        I think comparing the old BSG and new BSG to old and new Star Trek is a good analogy. I did not grow up with the old Star Trek but I have seen many episodes. TNG is still my all time favorite out of all the star trek series....

        It does take a little while to get the hang of all the characters, but you'll get there, it's an epic series....lots of characters, very deep.... it's not your traditional series with 4-5 main characters and everyone else are red shirts...

          I like series that are smart/clever and references current pop culture......

          Everyone is throwing around Netflix around here, I suppose I should jump on the bandwagon and see what all the hoopla is all about? What about Hulu? Does anyone use that?

            I've seen a few good shows thanks to that since I am never home.

            The Dr. Who new series from BBC and Torchwood. Firefly. Terminator series. Started lost, 1st season was great, turned to garbage in the 2nd and I stopped watching.

              I've heard of Torchwood, I think that might be a good series to watch.

              I've heard the same thing about LOST, at some point, there was a joke that the writers were "LOST". I don't know if the series turned a corner or not but it seems like one of those series that you have to pay a lot of attention or you'll get lost in the storyline, no pun intended.....

              I don't always seek a series that is deep in the storyline that takes a lot of effort to follow and keep track of. Sometimes I like series that are simple and straight to the point....

                Buffy... I don't think we missed a single episode. My grand daughter, who lives with me and was 4 at the time ('97), thought she was Buffy, and insisted that we call her that...lol. We'd introduce her her to peeps... "This is Ryan.", and she'd get angry and say, "NO, I'm Buffy.".</P>

                  That's cute. Funny how kids think when they are little...

                  I was talking to my nephew just the other day about my cat who died last year. He's 8 years old and my cat died last year at the age of 10. (that's about 56 in cat years).

                  Anyways, I told him that I'd see her again one day, she's waiting for me in heaven. And he said that she's gonna have to wait a long time before that happens, and asked me if it's like 5,000 years?

                  I said what? 5,000 years before I die? LOL!!

                    Not sure about 5,000. I'd like a whole lot more then the 70+ I'm likely to get, but I might be weary after a few thousand. Highlander... wasn't Ramirez over 2,000 years old, or 3,000? </P>

                      It is indeed interesting that human lifespan is within the 60-80 year range on average....

                      How did it work out to be that way? How come your "teenage" years are literally in your teens?

                      Can you imagine if we figure out the DNA aging process and tell it to slow down it's rate? And a "teenager" who literally is a teenager is actually 35-40 years old?

                      High school would be doubled to 8 years....college would be doubled to 8 years....

                      The side effect however would be absolute over population!!

                        There are already tried and true population controls out there. Just open hunting season a couple of times a year.

                          we're way overpopulated with a 70+ lifespan. I hate to say it, but the Chinese had it right... we need the world to restrict themselves to 1 child per family. Unfortunately, that led to a lot of hidden deaths ofsingle female offspring.</P>

                            X-Files: on and off-again viewing for me...but the "weirdness" was pretty cool.

                            My dude loved Buffy, I thought Sarah M.G. was hot and who didn't? But i didn't get into Buffy or Angel or Charmed for that matter.

                            Nor did I get into Babylon 5, Farscape or Lexx. (Though that Serendipity movie was kinda cool.)

                            I lean towards sci-fi and drama mainly in spite of material that at times seems a bit offensive to my Beliefs.

                            In recent years I've more or less phased out much Comedy, SitCom and "generic" TV watching in favor of Sports (Football, Baseball, Basketball and Premier League Soccer), News and the occasional fare produced on Discover, History or TLC.
