  1. I get that sex sells. I do. And I am certainly no prude. But I am SICK TO DEATH of studios and filmmakers feeling the need to include mindlessly gratuitous sex and nudity just for the sake of making an extra buck. The nudity and sex in this film get pointlessly graphic, and for NO REASON. Overall, it does nothing to advance the story, or add to it. It’s just there. And even when it might make a legitimate plot point, the sex could easily be implied rather that forced into the faces of the viewer. We’re smart people. We are. Man and woman lying naked in bed together? They probably have a sexual relationship. Man and woman in bed start kissing? Cut away, and we are still smart enough to figure out what comes next.

    But no. We just HAVE to have a scene with a topless bartender in the background. And we have to see full nudity in the showers, because as viewers, we are just not smart enough to figure out that people shower naked. Does full frontal nudity do ANYTHING to help the story along? No. They could be wrapped in towels, for crying out loud, and the film would be JUST AS GOOD.

    I love Battlestar Galactica: the stories, the actors, the effects, all of it. But I lose a great deal of respect for filmmakers who feel they have to use sex and nudity to sell their films. If the story cannot stand on its own without the gratuitous use of sex and skin, then it is a story not worth putting on film to begin with. And what’s sad is that the story of The Plan is a great one.

    One can only hope that the broadcast version of The Plan might one day be available on Blu ray. Am I alone in this?

  2. Wow! I was totally not expecting this from the BSG writers. This gives an inside look at the Cylon’s and their mind set. I wish there would have been a little more info about Starbuck, Baltar, and his Six. Love that they didn’t keep this restricted to PG, also. This is a must buy for BSG fans!!!

  3. I love BSG, mostly the first 2 seasons and the beginning of the third one. I think the last 10 episodes of season 4 were not exactly the best ever (some were very good like the rebellion ones) but I was more or less happy at the end in spite of all the problems.

    I was looking forward for “The Plan”, hoping it will give us some new perspectives and answers. It did not. In fact, it even ruined a lot of good things from the first seasons. I don’t want to spoil anything but basically, “The Plan” does not tell us anything about the Cylon plan (there was none apparently) and is just a nonsensical, bad-written story about the cylons in the fleet and the Caprica resistance during the first 2 seasons. It is even in some places contradictory with what was established. But mostly, we do not learn anything new from it.

    Don’t buy it and don’t watch it if you like BSG.

  4. I suppose sitting over drinks the idea of retelling the first couple of seasons of BSG from the Cylon POV was a good one, especially when they found out they could use some new material containing nudity. The realization of this dream, though, is just a warmed-over clip show featuring pointless scenes of (largely) third-tier cast members failing utterly to provide a coherent narrative. More damningly, it contradicts the series in key places. Just awful.

  5. Some of these ratings make no sense, as if the people rating this never watched the show.

    Excellent companion to the series, which will make you rethink many of the scenes from past seasons. Don’t be surprised if BSG marathons are in your future.
