they're like kids. They kind of start a task: 'Oooh, lets destroy humanity. Yeah lets do that. Oooh, look at that it's shiny.' Then they just get bored of shininess and the whole blooming cycle starts again.
Watch it Kitsune. get the mini-series, then get Series 1 and see one of the best Sci-fi series ever. I love it.
Crackle I won't give it away, don't you worry. I have just rented it from Blockbuster, and have been waiting for it for over a month. It's great though. PM me about it when you're done and we'll do some WTFing.
Get the mini-series first, or else you'll be as confused as a very confused person who's been thrown into a pit of very confused snakes. I learnt that lesson the hard way (they made a film about my snake-pit experiences. I believe Harrison Ford was in it. A film hasn't been made about my BSG confusion - that would be a very boring film indeed).
