Rewatch!

While I continue to sit on the fence about getting cable, I've made more definite plans to watch (or rewatch) an entire TV show from the beginning on DVD. I'm in the middle of the third season of Cheers, and have just begun to watch LOST again from the beginning. Just watching the pilot episode of LOST again has had immense impact, and I look forward to watch the rest of the series so far up to the season premiere of the sixth and final season next year.

As this goes on, I still want to do a BSG Rewatch (as Julie describes it in her household). The thing is, there is a new, stand-alone TV movie called The Plan that is about to debut on TV (and soon, DVD). Like the other stand-alone Battlestar Galactica TV movie, Razor, this covers events that were only mentioned in passing in the regular series. So, what's the hold-up? Well, I'm considering my rewatch to be in chronological order instead of when the episodes originally aired.

Geekitude is totally confirmed by this desire, but hear me out.

Like LOST, BSG has a lot of storylines going on episode after episode. So much so that trying to keep track of them or merely describing them is a task in itself. I think it would make perfect sense to watch BSG again in chronological order, but I'll have to do some research as to when would be a good time to take a break from the regular episodes. And yes, that's even geekier, but I have the desire to do this.

We watched them in chronological order, and now are watching them in daughter-induced order, in which the 13-year old in the house decides which one we watch. So we end up watching the same ones over again. To be honest, I can't wait for "The Plan", because I want to see something NEW for a change. ;)
