    Little Adama is awful, but other than that it's not half bad

    ^ 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 really enjoyed it. It's nice to get new stories in one of my favorite Sci-Fi universes, and the story seems pretty interesting so far. I was pleasantly surprised by all of the Caprica references. I loved Caprica, and I'm really glad that they appear to be using this as a bridge between the series.

    Was he a jerk in SGA's Tracker? I thought he was a good guy there. :confused:

    EDIT: Btw, I think the Blood and Chrome trailer is nice. I'm not sure that I'll watch the series, though.

    Pretty much how I feel about it.

    Looked up his filmography, and apparently he was in Maximum Overdrive! :lol: 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.

    Yeah, that guy was definitely channeling EJO.

    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

    ^ Cortez himself was hoping to get the part.

    He used to remind me of Kevin Kilner.

    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. :p

    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 was referring to the acting, I was just too lazy to look up his name.
