I liked the expanded flight deck and the addition of loads of extras. Finally we get to see the Galactica in her prime as bustling war machine operating at full capacity.
Pretty much how I feel about it.

Watched it. Loved it. Need more of it. I liked how much they managed to tie in "Caprica" with so little time per episode. Also, Mike Dupod is in everything apparently. BSG, B&C, SGA, SGU, FUD and probably more that I'm missing. I'm creating a theory called Mike Dupod theory, which states that BSG, Stargate, and Halo all occur in the same universe and that they occur in the past, present, and future, respectively.
Looked up his filmography, and apparently he was in Maximum Overdrive! I'm sure it would be quite easy to tie that in with your theory, tying the trucks in with the Cylons somehow.

No he wasn't a jerk in Tracker, he was a redemption character.

I have trouble not staring at Mike Dupod. The first time I noticed him was on SG:A and I was like.. who the heck is this? He's oddly distinctive when he should just be another Alpha dude.

I quite liked the young Adama in the previous war webisodes/Razor. Plus it wouldn't surprise me if Adama had a tat even if we never saw it in prime series.

No, there's nothing unusual about Dopud being here. Though I am disappointed that this is another jerk role which he seems to be typecast in. Aside from his character on SGU everyone he's played that I've seen him is a jerk.
Was he a jerk in SGA's Tracker? I thought he was a good guy there.
You're right, I keep forgetting about Tracker since it's not exactly my favourite Stargate episode.

Still, the guy has a track record when it comes to playing jerks, or at the very least villains, since his bounty hunter in SG-1's final season wasn't so much a jerk but wasn't really a good guy either.

Yea, Nico Cortez. Many fanbois were foaming at the mouth rooting for him him to get the part, and they were devastated when "Some Skinny Punk Kid" was given the part instead. One thing I was hoping for if a Series lasted 2 or 3 (or more) seasons was for them to put Luke Paqualino on a "Bulk Up" regimen, and see him gain muscle and slowly morph the "Punk Kid Adama" into the personality/style of EJO Adama

Hurrah, I can actually watch it from the UK (the webisodes for The Resistance, Razor and Face of the Enemy were always US only)

Great stuff so far. Sorry I missed when it said ep 3 will be released?
I don't think Face of the Enemy was ever put on a disc.

Also, eagerly awaiting ep3.

I don't know about anyone else, but for whatever reason young Adama kept reminding me of Keanu Reeves.

So far, like the story, acting alright, visuals nice but with one exception: Wow, I cannot stand that lens flare. Jesus.

Young Adama was a bit too young but I got over it in about five seconds.

I loved seeing Galactica in her prime.
The kid doesn't make me think Adama.

Yeah, it's notable ... but it's not something that ultimately drags on the story or the show.

If this hadn't already been canned by SyFy, I'd be extraordinarily excited by what we've seen so far. As it is, it's fun and engaging - even if it isn't exactly conveying a deeply meaningful thematic narrative.

^ I'd say tolerable more than awful. While not an asset, he's not a real detriment, either. The writing takes much of the blame for him being such an arrogant prick - but I suspect that's the point. The payoff is seeing him assigned to a "milk run" to cool his jets, instead of a Viper command. Seeing his arrogance being acknowledged and dealt with in the context of the two episodes was one of the things I liked so far.
I was referring to the acting, I was just too lazy to look up his name.
