Re: Does anyone have VHS recordings from the 1980's syndication run?

A friend of mine had VHS copies of every Battlestar Galactica episode ever made that he recorded as they first aired on TV! Unfortunately, he passed away about six years ago, and I have no idea what ever happened to all his stuff.

He also had the entire Showtime original series of Bonanno: A Godfather's Story, from when it actually aired! All 360 minutes of it, uncut and unedited. I sure wish I had a copy of that right now!

Re: Does anyone have VHS recordings from the 1980's syndication run?

This thread reminds me I need to throw out my VHS collection...

I recorded all of Trek in the late 1990s. Have Voyager season 4-7 first run, DS9 5-7 first run, Enterprise 1-3 first run (I gave up because DVDs started coming out so it seemed - and was - moot to record them).

But they're just junk, honestly. I haven't looked at a VHS tape in 10 years.

And I didn't label them well either, so I'd literally have to go through 200-odd tapes to find any small bit of worth... lol.

My father recorded all of the original BSG episodes on VHS. That is how I got into BSG.

Are those tapes still in a known location?

Update

This changes the game somewhat. BSG expert Chris Pappas informs me that his own copies of the episode from eighties syndication don't have that line audible. This means that only some of the syndication copies had it, which makes that bit of dialogue extremely rare indeed.

If it turns out it was never there at all, then someone has worked very hard to plant a false memory in my brain. Since I see no point in anyone's doing so, and since I have no family history of insanity, I continue to believe it was there, and if I ever find my old tape I'll prove it.

Mystery solved!

And boy, am I a goofball. I never thought to look in the "scenes from part 1" sequence at the beginning of part 2, but that's where the "Not now" was all along!

Just move along. Nothing to see here...

Anyway, here it is incorporated into the original context with Episode 1 music, which has not been heard before: http://tinyurl.com/meeo9x5
