Re: Ratings are in !

Okay, let's assume there was never a plan. It was tagged on and TPTB thought they could go somewhere really cool with it. Let's also assume that they decided they were getting no where, and dropped the whole concept. Is that really a reflection on the entire show? Ar you, archangel, really going to let five little words that even preceed the teaser really ruin your enjoyment of the entire show? Or was there never an enjoyment of the show, and you're here because it's fun?

Re: Ratings are in !

It's more fun watching fanboys sputter and rationalize. There was no abandoned plan, they said so themselves....they lied in the opening to attract viewers. who watched the show turn into Desperate Cylons.

I guess all those people who were fans and "got it" in season one...then left as the show got worse....I guess they suddenly stopped getting it.

But do keep spinning....some of you are approaching Languatron levels.

Re: Ratings are in !

So why are you here then? If season one is all you liked, why do you come into every thread about the following seasons and stir up the dust?

Oh, and on your sig: it's needs to be a question mark at the end.

So basically you say RDM doesn't lie...I point out one of the many lies from the show and the usual suspects dismiss it out of hand...

color me shocked
Well, except that its not a lie. The Cylons have a plan. Maybe not a well executed one, Maybe one that hasn't changed, maybe one that doesn't make a damn bit of sense to the viewer, but they have one.

Some people--I'm not thinking of anyone in particular--keeps throwing that around as if it was supposed to mean that RDM and Co had a plan, which they obviously didn't past the bare bones series arc. And I don't see why that in and of itself is supposed to be a bad thing.

But the bottom line is, I enjoy the show. I don't give a crap is RDM lies every third word, if the Cylon plan doesn't make sense or if the ratings are in the crapper. None of that effects my enjoyment at all.

I guess all those people who were fans and "got it" in season one...then left as the show got worse....I guess they suddenly stopped getting it.
No, they just stopped enjoying it, which is fine (if in fact the ratings actually reflect lost viewers and not viewers recording for later viewing or getting the show from iTunes, which is equally possible). Not every show is for everyone. But what is clear is that the fans who continue to watch are still enjoying it. What exactly is wrong with that?

(And yes, Sam, I know I shouldn't take the bait. I'm a weak man....)

I don't suppose I can talk you out of an answer to my previous question, which I feel is pretty valid right now.

You mean the question that's complete and utter BS?

In the past 10 days I've posted in exactly 6 threads on this forum...3 of them were threads started by me. But don't let reality interfere with you attempts to run me away from your RDM lovefest.

Re: Ratings are in !

Well, here's a plan we've had in place for, ohhhhh.... 3-4 years I think.

This forum is for discussing the series both new and old. It works best when we're not focusing so much of our energies on each other. How about you dial it back instead of being so antagonistic? Antagonism leads to hate. Hate leads to trolling. Trolling leads to infractions.....

Mehh..... you get the idea.

Wow the fanboys must be weak to have to run crying to the mods to fight their battles since they can't actually backup any of their absurd spinning.

Re: Ratings are in !

Man, I love this show

I can't wait to see how they rap up the series at the end of S4. I'm also curious what ratings the finale will get. If I'm reading Russ's charts right, there was always an upturn for the finale except for S3 (http://trekbbs.com/showpost.php?p=1538016&postcount=295). But I assume this will be different since the show as a whole is coming to an end. I just wonder how many more people will actually tune in.

I hear you. I'm having a hard time, myself. Obviously.

Thankfully, someone just took the cheese out of the trap for us. For the moment, anyway.

I usually watch online.
