I have not seen it, but have always wanted to watch.  I believe it shows on Fridays?  I work every time it is on, so I miss out.  Just gonna wait for it to come out on DVD I guess.

I loved the old ones, but hear people talking about it all the time, the new one that is.

Definitely worth watching if you are even remotely into sci-fi stuff. If you are equipped to watch DivX/XviD I'll give you a DVD with the series on it.

Just don't read posts #3 and #4 of this thread!! ;) :lol:

Is this old or new?  My sister bought me the original pilot on DVD last year for my birthday...very cool.

In short, DivX and its open source alternative, XviD are compression codecs for video. Your basic 1h:20m movie takes up about 6 or 7GB on a dual layer disk, this is converted to a 1GB or so "movie.avi" that can be played on your computer or special DVD player.

If you want to watch them on your iBook, go get VLC. If you want to watch on your TV pick up the DVD player - its only $65 or so from amazon.

totally, I will also have time to figure out how to make it work on my computer.  Unfortunately, I do have to return to work this weekend.  Hopefully that won't make things worse.  I have been put on light duty, which means minimal patient care, so that should help.  but I can not take any pain meds while working :wink:  :roll:

Here is a ton of information about the new series, and a good section on similarities and differences from the original.

The last sci-fi show I liked and watched semi-regularly ended in 2000. Now I try to stick with motorcycle building shows, car education, and reruns of Fresh Prince.
