I think Katee's Starbuck was a horrible person and ultimately a liability to the human race, but immensely watchable thanks to the actress and the scripting. The only issue I have with Sackhoff's portrayal was that she didn't seem to be able to pull off the f-word.
She may have seemed like a liability, except for that little fact that she lead them to Earth and everything. Not to mention fending off Cylon raiders like a boss in earlier seasons.

I don't care about the actor, or weither[sic] the character is a man or woman or robot. I just hope we never see Kara Thrace again. It was that character I hated, not the actor.
You hating the character doesn't actually have anything to do with whether the character was bad or not.

Anyway, that's just my reading of it. I think it depends on how much you're prepared to take with the proverbial pinch of salt.

Going back on-topic, I imagine that the big-screen Starbuck will emphasise the loveable rogue / magnificent b****** aspects of the character while not going too near the kind of darkness that we see from about New Caprica onwards.

Re: Talk of Bryan Singer's BSG project resurfaces

Female Starbuck never bugged me. I think "bad" is way overstating it.

Honestly, I'm a bit shocked at all the Kara Thrace hate. Sure she might have been an purpose, troublemaker - yet none that made her "bad" by any stretch.

I'm all for a different take on BSG. It's a fun concept. Singer or someone else might do something interesting with it.

I can actually see that being the real level of consideration.

"Look, I don't care. Just bring me some old guy who looks prestigious, like Lorne Green, only not dead. Now let's get some uber hotties in this thing!"
Pretty much, except nobody will know who Lorne Green is (that's the guy who produces Saturday Night Live, right?) The "one ugly old dude" will be Tommy Lee Jones as Adama, and everyone else will be imported from the Twilight movies and Friday Night Lights.

Even TOS Tighe had some obvious aging, and I want to think he (at least the actor when not died) had some grey in his hair? Col Tighe, can't be under Mid 40s. Sure, if you want to, you can make him hot, but, he can't be a youngster (He's a Colonel for Frak's Sake), and he's gotta be demanding.

Actually it's Lorne Michaels who produces SNL not Lorne Greene.

Yes. The only old character is Commander Adama.

Yes, I mean Commander Adama and Colonel Tigh.

I mean Commander Adama, Colonel Tigh, and the President of the Twelve Colonies.

But everyone else is young and hot.

Except Commander Adama, Colonel Tigh, and the President of the Colonies, and the Quorum of Twelve.

And Count Iblis.

Re: Talk of Bryan Singer's BSG project resurfaces

I said "the actor when not died" as in Dyed hair (died was a typo)

That sentence makes absolutely no sense if I was referring to death.

Terry Carter will be 83 on December 16.

It made no sense grammar-wise the way it was written, which is why I got confused.

But I get it now.
