Re: What the frak do we do now.

Buy Caprica in 4 weeks, have viewing parties, drink beer. Wait 2 weeks..go see Star Trek...wait a bit longer, go see the BSG sequel, Terminator: Salavation wait a few weeks...go see BSG: The Plan.
Go to Dragoncon, go to BSG Colonial Fleet party...then die.

Every poster should prepare a new series, fully conceptualized and written, for the scrutiny of other posters. Seriously. It'll be fun.

Re: What the frak do we do now.

It still hasn't quite sunk in yet that the story is over. Obviously we'll have Caprica but no matter how good it is I don't think it'll match BSG.

Re: What the frak do we do now.

It shouldn't have to. It should stand on its own as good or bad, and I'm hopeful. Besides Bear is doing the music there as well (and I am a fan of the 2 main actors)

Re: What the frak do we do now.

Cry in your beer until something else comes along that captures your interest.

I went through this when DS9 ended. There was suddenly nothing on that I loved to watch. I watched Voyager, but only because I was waiting for it to be good. Eventually I picked up the Star Trek novels and read those pretty religiously until Enterprise came along (which I abandoned pretty fast), then BSG, and now I have to find something else.

I'm going to get the Blu-Ray boxed set and watch the whole lot from the start in glorious 1080p.

For the cheapskates among us (e.g., me) Caprica is also available to save for rental via Netflix now.

Re: What the frak do we do now.

We'll argue ceaselessly until something else comes along of course... its unfortunate, I think I have pretty much now watched all the good space opera shows there have been (except the anime ones - he said, pre-empting). Last time BSG went away for a long time I watched all of B5, which I knew fairly well, but had never watched from start to finish - now its gone for good there's... nothing.

I am enjoying Terminator, and Dollhouse, but they don't do what BSG did, and anyway, they're not long for this world either. I can't get excited for Caprica, because "Daybreak" pretty much turned it into a very small story. I dunno, there's got to be something out there.

I would recommend going to this year's Colonial Fleet party at Dragon*Con because it will be the last. Damn shame if you ask me.
