I'm not too familiar with the new BSG series, but I know a little of it's space battles, and FF outerspace sequences, like it's battles, are close in style (in fact, you can see the FF ship briefly in one BSG episode!)...
That's because both shows are done by the same CG effects house.
No they aren't Zoic left Battlestar Galactica after the second season.
Then they WERE done by the same special effects house for two years.

I do however feel that anyone who enjoys the the depression, soap-opera shit that is 'Ron Moores' nu BSG probably won't enjoy the colorful aliens, fx, writing and humor in a tv series like Farscape.
And you would be wrong. I consider both pinnacles in science fiction TV.
QFT.

Is it also impossible for someone to like both drama and comedy? Opera and rock-n-roll? Italian food and Chinese food? I would suggest that anyone who is wired that way look into a neuron check.

And ratings as a measure of quality?

Re: Do you think I'd like Firefly?

BUMP!

I just finished the Firefly movie (Serenity) and was very disappointed.
I just watched the TV show (all 14 episodes) for the first time this past month.
The movie had a negative tone
and didn't follow the Western motif they had in the TV show. Also, I personally can't stand movies where a woman is a sexy super-assassin...too fanboy. I'm sorry, but if you think Summer Glau is hot then...oh forget it.

Have you been watching the Terminator TV series? The girl cleans up REAL good! Summer can be hot as hell with very little effort. I'm beginning to think the real effort was to make her look so mousey on Firefly!

I agree the movie was WAY too dark in tone. Oddly enough, that's the way Whedon wanted the TV series to be before Fox execs made him tone it down. That's the ONLY thing I think Fox got right. Ever.

I heard that he wanted Mal to be more dour...but then from what you say then I'm glad Fox changed the show to the way it was.
I don't like Glau because as you said, she's too mousy. She looks like a 12 year-old. I rolled my eyes many times when they had that fanboy dream of a girl in black spining ang kicking. ugh.

Re: Do you think I'd like Firefly?

She was always an assassin. That much was clear through the end of the TV series. She was not so much powerful as extremely fast, precise, and just a bit psychic---enough to anticipate an opponent's move, anyway.

Oh, and if this is what 12-year-old girls look like where you live.....

Is it just me, or does that picture make Sarah Connors (sorry, name of the actress escapes me atm) look like Michael Jackson?

I'm just too old for girls in leather with guns to excite me.

I hope I never get too old for women to excite me under any circumstances.

I'm still going by how she looked in Firefly. I've never seen the Sarah TV show. She certainly doesn't look like a full-grown woman in Firefly.

True, but she was still just as gorgeous.

That's funny; I always had trouble buying her as younger than 21.
