...Is it even Earth?

I noticed that they never really gave us a clear shot of any of the land masses from orbit. My only thought is that, maybe, this isn't really Earth.
Through all my excitement I noticed the same thing. I was looking for a recognizable landmass, but saw nothing.
You could clearly see Florida from orbit in the season 3 finale.

I assume this that *that* very same world. Otherwise, why show it?

It was "our" Earth, they showed what was left of some bridge in NYC. If you can't see that you haven't watched enough movies or need glasses, or both.
Uh, aside from "watching enough movies" I've actually been to New York quite a few times - big shocker there, I'm sure. And I see fine. If you can't offer better than "some bridge in NYC" I'd say that you don't know the city well enough to tell whether those darkened stumps across the water were New York or New Gargleblast.

Apropos of nothing, BTW, if you type "galactica" and "holy fuck" into Google tonight it returns 6210 hits.

Re: Earth

Well at least now we know why everything the colonials have so closely relates to earth stuff.(Clocks, cars, language, dress etc)

I to thought this was they way they would go. Im sure the colonials are decendants of our time period just before a nuclear war or some similar disater. A group of earthers left and the colonials were the result. Now Im sure we will find out exactly how at the end of the season next year.

It's a NYC bridge, it's clear as day, it's the Brooklyn Bridge, that is THE NYC bridge.

Re: Earth

Did anyone else notice that the ruins looked a lot like the picture of the temple in the book Apollo was looking at in his dad's office?

Yeah, okay. Because the twisted remains of the Brooklyn Bridge look real different from any other suspension bridge in the world. Plus, unlike other bridges it crosses a body of water leading into a large city.

As have I. After all, all this has happened before and will happen again.

Gosh, I hope though that it's some other city than NYC. It's been done to death. Hell, maybe it's San Francisco and that's the Bay Bridge or it's some yet unseen city that we've yet to build. Better yet, maybe it's some city on some Earth that isn't ours.

I hope that RDM and DE break out of the box and make it something other than NYC.

Post-apocalyptic NYC. Been there. Done that.

Absolutely. And it looked nothing like the Brooklyn Bridge.

Re: Earth

They'll probably never tell us what city it is or where on "Earth" it's located.

I know, but I was still expecting to see a ruined Stature of Liberty in the final pan!

The inhabitants of New Gargleblast are underground dwellers, so it couldn't be New Gargleblast.
