John and Scorpy are really great - perfect mix of actor chemistry and writers responding to it.

Hated char - is that Maldis?

Ah. I thought it was Maldis because I've seen some hate for him in other locations, from people who thought that he was just too swords-and-sorcery in concept and didn't fit into the show.

Ha, sure! I read the volumes all in Finnish ages ago, and IIRC some were never translated.

I haven't bothered with the new Battlestar Galactica. I remember the original, where Starbuck was a man and so I shipped him and Apollo so badly. The last episode with Starbuck and a damaged Cylon stranded together on a barren planet, with no hope of rescue, was very moving.

I haven't seen the whole thing either, but since my husband is a big fan of the original and always tells me all about it and shows me random clips, it sometimes feels almost like I've seen it, lol. But I really should properly sit down and watch it all at some point.... XD

Ooooh, really nice responses!

It's been absolutely ages since I saw BSG, but your answers are now jogging my memory, and I'm recalling that I felt very similarly about several of the things you mention. Especially Starbuck. I LOVE her. SO MUCH. She was always my favourite. But I totally agree that the way her arc was handled later on (post-New Caprica onward) was rather bizarre, not to mention, as you say, even OOC at times. It's not that don't appreciate explorations of religions and religious topics in sci-fi (obviously!), but moreso that I didn't really enjoy the way the show handled that side of things in general in the final seasons. It just didn't 'work' for me, for whatever reason. And there were several characters whose storylines suffered as a result.

But yeah... overall, the BSG reboot had some very compelling characters, as well as some fascinating character interactions and relationships. I also remember loving the visuals for the most part, and thinking the space battles and whatnot were well done. I just recall wishing that the second half of the series had been just a *little* less convoluted, plot-wise. ;p

I'm also with you on not really being inclined toward 'hating on' characters. (Certain extreme psychopatic/villainous types being the exception, lol.) Usually I try to just focus on the characters and relationships that I *do* like. :)

Oh, interesting! That does make sense. I didn't actually watch it as it was airing either, but rather later on, after I'd already been living in the UK for several years. So perhaps the lack of that particular context did make it all seem a tad more jarring than it would have otherwise..

"Sting doing an Interview with the Vampire musical"

oh shit, that IS a shame.

Nice use of Sting's arse and tiny tiny shorts (and Stewart in tiny shorts too! I think someone- probably sidewinder- once wrote tiny shorts related fic and I need to reread that). My favourite interactions are every time Sting pokes Andy, annoys Andy, touches Andy, or is a bitch to Andy. Or whenever any one of them bitches at anyone else.

I'm too casual a fan to really say much about their music though fic means I've watched way too much footage of them talking and/or fighting, but your Ghost in the Machine opinions seem solid to me.
