I found this and I thought it was very funny. Keep in mind that I loved the original BSG also.

You do realize that your statement almost shows your lack of an appreciation for the original? I thought the video was pretty good when I first saw it about a month ago. Does a good job of pointing out the differences between the two shows, while at the same time paying homage to the original in an uplifting and commedic way.

Yes, because I lack appreciation for the original.

I am aware it was a different time, I just don't like that series.

So what, I never watched the original but it was still quite funny. It was looking at the old one in an entertaining way for those who saw it and those who didn't. But as I knew roughly what it was like it was a good thing to see, I don't think appreciating the original is necessery for enjoying it.

Actually, I'm pretty sure that was the shows creators who came up with "frak" so they could use the word and have the show still be aired on a general channel.

Unless you were talking about the genre scifi ... laugh.gif

At which point I would respond by burning all the dictionaries wink.gif

I do like the show (albeit a bit less then I used to) but frak is the one thing I've always hated about it biggrin.gif Never flows into conversation and just stands out, fraking stupid word.

I agree. I liked Farscape's made up words. And not because of the words, but because of the way they were used. They didn't just say the words to say them, it really seemed to flow in normal conversation. Then I watched BSG.... it was almost annoying when they used frack because it just didn't mesh with a normal conversation. It was like they were trying to put far too much emphasis on the words rather than the conversation they were having.

I have to agree with you both. If they say frak once, they say it at least 20 times per show. It loses it's meaning after that. I firmly believe that TPTB of BSG wanted to be able to swear and get it past the censors, so they came up with a totally different word. So far it flies, but if it makes it into the dictionary, with an inappropriate meaning, like I said, it may get banned, LOL! wink.gif
