I've just finished BSG: S1. Well that was great. I'm definitely gonna buy the S2 DVD box set. I cannot wait to find out what happens next.
I ended up watching episodes in 2 or 3 episode chunks. I was even up until 8am for the last 3 episodes, I had to know what happened next. I wasn't expecting the Season 1 final episode twist, especially what had happened only a few minutes before (Boomer discovering she's a Cylon, then minutes later she shoots Adama, although it pointed out Number Six say "she's weak a model but will follow her mission"..
Some parts you've got to allow for artist licence (if Cylons can work out how to make themselves "pregnant", they sure as hell can find a bunch of ragtag humans and how exactly are they different from humans then? but otherwise I loved it. The action (there's less than I imagined), the mythology, the comparison to religion, how the Cylons can grow just like humans/how they get jealous, the Balter character, Adama...
Boomer (Grace Park) is HOT! They're probably body doubles but she's got great boobs too.
The HD transfer was pretty good, not outstanding but colours were more vibrant etc... It was surprisingly grainy though. I cannot say how good the Dolby TrueHD was because my Amp's Surround Sound component needs re-soldering, all I can get is Stereo.
Before getting S2 I'm gonna check out my Lost S1 and Twin Peaks S1 box sets (it's been a decade!), having a gap is a good thing.
