Well, now that our favorite show is finally winding down, I've been starting to re-watch the episodes from the beginning. I'm struck by how different it plays, scenes and dialalogue, since certain mysteries were answered (Earth, The Final Five) , and the characters have gone through so much (even Boomer, Caprica Six).. that it almost plays like a whole new show.. and that's coming from someone who's already watched certain episodes a few times already.
Anyway, since we still have major answers, and a resolution in a couple weeks, I decided to stop re-watching, and wait until the series ends, or until I see Caprica's pilot. Either way, even though I don't have much time on my hands, I will find time to re-watch it in order.
Then, something 123home123 said in the Daybreak thread struck me. We are all very busy, and don't have all that much time on our hands (then again, unfortunately, some may have too much, due to current circumstances).. but wouldn't it be a great way to keep the forum alive, after the series ends.. to start a new re-watch thread.
It's ultimately up to 123home123, but my idea was it could be a general discussion thread, instead of one thread per episode, but that's up to the editor. Instead , we could discuss lines and diologue, character action, and scenes which perhaps have a new light, or seem different since everything has been revealed and laid out in the open, after the finale.
Example.. Tigh and Ellen, Boomer, Caprica Six, heck.. look at Doral's scenes as a simple public relations man at the beginning. It would be a long running thread.
Just an idea.. but I think it would be fun.
And I also wanted to say that it's been really fun, even though my posts have been sporadic, talking with you guys, and listening to your theories, and speculations. I've never seen a show generate this much discussion, and intelligent thought in my life. Let's find ways to keep it going.
What do you guys think.. and you, 123home123?
Salute, and thanks!
EDIT: 03/22 I'm going to add one more anectdote to keep the thread alive so someone sees it. Don't worry.. I won't keep doing it, I know it's against the rules. With all the different threads going on in light of the Daybreak finale, this one is lagging off with the current of the tide. But I have a feeling if people see it, they'll want to check it out, and join in .
It doesn't have to follow the episodes in order, per se.. just name the episode you're referring to, and list your reflections on it (scene, lines, motivation, etc) which somehow seem different now that the story has come full circle.
