Way to elevate the discourse.

I hope that last line is jokey. Anyway, I gotta agree with the marathon viewing angle. When you're watching 4 episodes in a row, that one lousy ep doesn't seem to matter so much and the final 5 stuff seems a lot more cohesive and thought-out.

I think maybe the aniticipation of having to wait between episodes and seasons might put some people in a postion to impose their own expectations on the story. Watching the series straight through, I was caught up in the flow of the narrative, and never found myself trying to predict where it was taking me. The richly rewarding experience of watching BSG (and before that The Wire) in this way may have forever put me off watching television drama in serialized weekly installments.

Having read through most of the last few pages of this thread, I am resisting the urge to dredge up some of the arguments about the finale. Suffice it to say, the finale was flawed, but absolutely brilliant, and anyone who disagrees is a stupid fucking faggot.
Please stop posting on theses boards.

As an apparent "stupid fucking faggot" myself I can only humbly point out to my fellow European Chewers that Amazon.co.uk. has the entire series for mere 60 Pound as the deal of the week!

So it looks like I´ll see for myself shortly how much this series improves on marathon viewing.

I marathoned the last season a few months ago. If anything, it made the experience worse. It's so painful after the near perfection that the first two seasons were, and some of the third as well.

Guess I'm a stupid fucking faggot, then. Shh, don't tell my wife.
