1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    It wasn't entirely unredeemable... (spoilers) At least they finally got rid of Cally....
    Fightin' words! I'd really prefer Tory took a spacewalk. But at least, during that episode, I wasn't rolling on the floor in an uncontrollable fit of laughter, which makes it more successful than the episode where Kat got fried. This last one was ok. Some of the writing was excellent, though Baltar's speech at the end was surprisingly meh.

    I wouldn't have minded that either... in a perfect world, I would have liked to see both.

    So, I watched the newest episode last night. Did anyone else catch it? It was fairly wow(s), and it is gonna' be a difficult wait until 2009.

    Despite some weak episodes, they redeemed themselves with the last several.

    No kidding - what a great way to end. It's gonna be a long wait until January to see where they go now.

    Tell me you mean the last one, and I might give it a shot. If you're including Sine Qua Non, you're all dead to me. Like that fucking cat.

    Ugh. Fine. You'd better be right about this.

    This show really is the first instance I can think of where watching it constitutes being an in abusive relationship.

    Am I the only one that thought the finale felt ridiculously rushed?

    Like: "Quick, let's wrap this up and get to goin' on that hiatus for the next seven or eight months. I gotta get a mojito in me, stat."

    Wow - powerful episode to start the final season last night.

    Can't wait to see how it all wraps up.

    The idea that there would be ambient radiation covering an entire planent 2,000 years after a nuclear war is arrant nonsense.

    I know, it just throws the believability out the window.

    I can suspend disbelief for the radiation, but them finding almost perfectly preserved artifacts on the surface was a bit of a stretch.

    Also the fact that all the clues they needed to find were in walking distance from their landing site.

    I did enjoy it, but that was still stupid. The walking distance thing was much dumber than the radiation.
