Child Of Auron
I finished season 3 of BSG today. What a dark season this was in comparison to the season 2 but all the better for it. And yet another great end of season cliff-hanger - the reveal of 4 of the 5 Cylons, return of a character thought dead and the nod to Dylan/Hendrix All Along The Watchtower.
One more season to go...

However, first I am heading back to the very early 70s and two pairs of spectacles....

And mine!

Such a great script and timing.

I have finished the first series of The Two Ronnies. Clearly they hadn't yet hit their stride with a lot of "safe" or lame jokes, too many guest singers/entertainers too.

It definitely started to pick up towards the end but certainly no sketches in the class of Mastermind, Crossed Lines or Society of Mispronunciation.

I also watched the "special" BSG movie "Razor" for the first time. That is two hours of my life I won't be getting back, a waste of an opportunity and a total bore.

It has been so long since I saw it, I can't recall much of Razor except I remember thinking it was distracting me from the main story. So it can't have been much good. Did you watch any of the prequel Caprica? Sadly it only lasted 1 season. Typical tv people not giving it a chance.

I also think it started to trail off towards the end. The series with the phantom raspberry blower and the worm that turned are a definite peak.

Actually at this very moment I am watching Talking Pictures: a British film from 1962 called Don't Talk to Strange Men. Naff title but it is really quite tense. At one point I started to cover my eyes (like watching Dr Who as a child). Denouement yet to occur...

The Battlestar Galactica remake's prequel, Caprica, is well worth watching, One Spare Part. It has a couple things in it, well, a couple really, that rubs me wrong because I find such a set of characters to be flagrant degeneracy flaunted in a show kids may watch. However, the show is very good in the BSG universe. The casting choices were spot-on, Eric Stoltz is very good as one main character and he's the sort of actor I was not expecting to pop up in a science fiction show like this. The characters are believable, flawed, interesting, as are the plots and the very well fleshed out backstory of the society the story takes place in.

Many of the characters are Taurons not Capricans, so it has a bit of a mob-feel to it, with quite mafioso characters and plots in some instances. There is much conflict, it's a slow-paced show in terms of character development, but with rewards for audience patience, but a fast-paced show in terms of an explosive start and plot-dense happenings throughout.

The depictions of the virtual reality that passes for entertainment were pretty disturbing, but perhaps not unreasonable in the depictions of how terribly humans might behave if there were no consequences to their actions, except for the impact on themselves.

In fact I'd say there are plot points ferreted out in Caprica that answer questions a BSG fan would have even after watching all of BSG, but the show was far from just a string of tied-up answers to unanswered questions. The music was excellent, the score, very good, good fit.

Yeah, 9.5 out of 10. Should have had a second season. Didn't get the chance.

I haven't seen Caprica but I went on what friends of mine were saying that it wasn't any good, in fact I only knew one person who stood up for it. When I found out it had been cancelled after the first season I decided it wouldn't be worth starting. Maybe a mistake...

Started the second series of The Two Ronnies - still not yet on par with the show at it's height but an improvement on the first series.

Soap fans may be interested (or not) in the knowledge that this series features the first case for Piggy Malone and Charlie Farley, and their main guest is played by Sue Lloyd who later became famous as Barbara Hunter in Crossroads. It does seem a little strange seeing straight laced "Barbara" heaving her bosom up and being all sexy Grin

I was rather annoyed that some-one wasn't allowed to have Pterry Pratchett novels as his specialised subject back in the 1980s/1990's, possibly as late as the early 2000's . But Austen, Brontes, et al were allowed.
