They should have a different one of these suggestions every episode, and then have the pilot spontaneously combust or suffer a bizarre (Prax panel) gardening accident at the end of the episode.

...It was one of those things best left unsolved really."

All this BSG chat reminds me of the Resurrection Ship 2 parter and how loving GOOD that cliff-hanger was.

I'm getting my men. I'm pretty sure my jaw was on the floor watching the guns on Pegasus and Galactica turn on each other with Vipers coming out of the tubes.

The wait due to the Writer's strike was terrible.

For the miniseries they had to cut corners, so they cut the corners off of everything as a joke. Then the show was picked up and they had to spend time cutting corners off every book used for the rest of the show.

That show still has some of the best special effects put to television!

It looks as good or better than many shows recently or currently airing, even being 17 years old. There is a part of my brain that thinks it looks better than The Expanse because the modern effects have too much detail.


RDM also helped to mainstream podcasting/director commentary as praxis. He would release it free, every week as the show aired. A great companion at the beginning of the DVR era!

Bear McCreary's score for the series also seriously upped the ante for original music in television. I don't know if there's ever been anything quite as well done in that department since.

Wil Wheaton as early TNG Wesley Crusher, complete with so 90's it hurts gray uniform, snotty nerd attitude, and writers who have no idea what to do with him.

I mean, let's be real here. Alex isn't exactly an important character. "Guy that flies the ship and makes silly shaped lasagna" isn't foundational to the plot character writing.

I haven't read the books, so perhaps he becomes more interesting? But it seems like a very easy character to get rid of.

Just have his character be off screen all the time and let Lin Manuel Miranda do his voice with the Texas accent.

Boomer/Athena were decent enough pilots, replace Alex with Grace Park.

Unfortunately unless Amazon decides to reshoot season 5, we have to put up with Alex through season 5. Honestly I don't think they'll recast. They'll probably kill Alex off or have him retire or something.
