All of this has happened before, and all of it will happen again

If you’re looking for something to watch this pandemic, and you haven’t seen it, may I introduce you to the TV Series that I’ve watched three times through. Battlestar Galactica. It’s currently streaming with limited advertisements on SyFy.com

I don’t know how to properly convey I do not re-watch TV series, and that’s how good it is. Well, except for parts of season 2 where they had no budget and were hanging out in a bunch of trees. That part I didn’t particularly care for but whatever.

It’s a reboot of the 1978 TV stinker, which for its time was something. I remember loving it as a kid and then buying the series when it came out on DVD to find it was neigh unwatchable. But, tastes change.

You’ll want to start with the two-part miniseries, this stuff doesn’t seem to be presented in order anywhere. You can catch that here: miniseries .

Should be noted the miniseries is labeled S1E1 and S1E2, which is also what two others are labeled.

If you get through the miniseries and want to know more, head on over to the episodes link and scroll down to… S1E1… again.. it’s called 33 and takes place immediately after and because the tension was simply not enough in the miniseries it ramps it up.

Beware the list on SyFy is in reverse order and starts with the final episode.

The Plan and Razor (mini movies) are there. These are two movies that as I recall aired later and filled in some gaps. Razor is at the end of Season 3 (where it should be,) The Plan at the end of the series… it’s a prequel but answers a couple of questions.

The first run-through of this series I happened to be in Australia during the final episode, which didn’t air there, or at least not where we were staying. As I recall I managed to get a mp4 from a French broadcast service and watched it on a computer with subtitles on a 108f day that could play the mp4 for about 40 seconds before buffering locally. It wasn’t the best way to watch, but that’s what I was willing to suffer (and it was too hot to do anything that day.) That’s how good the series was.
