    I'm sure some people thought that that Pegasus was a ripoff of Equinox. :)

    Actually, BSG felt like a ripoff of Equinox.

    Oh c'mon, it takes HUGE balls today, in this enviroment, to do a Sci-Fi TV show and say "*** did it"*, and point all the way back to the pilot.

    Basically giving the finger to everyone along the way who was trying to technobabble an explanation.

    It was called "Battlestar Galactica"
    We already knew someone else did it.

    Moore had to opportunity to do his thing on BSG, so there. He, and others STILL whining about this should already get over it, tbh.

    Sure, it would have been an interesting take to make Voyager a bit "darker" and stuff, but at the end of the day what's done is done. Voyager is good as the way it is.

    Is this some kind of swing back against BSG that I've missed? Or was always hated on by a big bunch of genre folk?

    I only watched it last year, felt like I was going to die if I didn't see the next and the next and the next episode. It wasn't a show you love and embrace and grow old with like Babylon 5 or your best Trek series, it was more like some kind of intense drug high you loved every minute of. That's cliched but it's how I felt at the time.

    The tv experience is very different to the dvd experience.

    There's time to think and ask questions because the next episode is not qued up on your dvd player waiting to unload into your brain.

    The dvd of Blood and chrome came out today if you didn't bother with the webisodes.

    You know where to look for it.

    I webisoded it. But I'll buy the dvd, it's unrated iirc. So, more stuff, as in young Adama frakking the traitor.

    And yeah, I like the gorge yourself on your current love better than tv. I liked gorging myself on catching up with NuWho better than watching it in dribs and drabs.

    Question about blurays?

    How many episodes per disk?

    Having to get up off the couch every four episodes is for the fucking birds.

    I mean with my home made collection it's usually every 12 episodes, so I actually have a chance of falling asleep watching Voyager even if I already woke up earlier in the after noon watching Voyager.

    I like watching things on the computer.

    Of course the ancient crappified darkness of my tv may have something to do with this. But there's no getting up, it's all clicking on the next folder or putting in the next disc while never actually shifting anything but my arms.

    You haven't tried plugging your pc into your tv?

    Once you accept that, you'll find yourself upgrading your tv lickity split.

    I've grown childishly impatient with TV. I'll watch the first ep of something like Homeland or B&C, then wait till end so I can enjoy in one go. I remember powering through BSG s1-3 , then getting withdrawal waiting for that final season :lol:

    My PC is too far away from my tv though I have done it in the past with lots of cords. No need though as my PC monitor is good enough and also allows me to be out of public areas and wearing headphones which are at least something of a barrier to interruption. Also I watch stuff that I'm going to get given crap for and I can just minimize it with the computer.

    So then it's just the wall projector that you're denying exists to make your house into a home?

    For three grand there about's, you can hook your tv or pc up to a wall projector, that physically has the effect of a old reel to reel projector your grand parents had when they would show home movies on a large table cloth they'd nailed to the wall.

    Star Wars the size of the wall in your living room.

    Light sabre duels at twice actual size.

    Video games the size of a wall.

    That's the equivalence possibly of a 12 METER TV screen.

    This is turn of the century technology.

    You've never seen a demonstration?

    No. And isn't it kind of dinky color and clarity wise?

    I'd need a big screen, my walls are all punctuated with windows and bookcases and stuff.

    Lay on your back, use the ceiling.

    Wait.

    Didn't I just say that in another thread 15 seconds ago?

    14 episodes and cancellation proved that theory wrong.
