So, I’m in Germany, and it’s not letting me watch the long-awaited season premiere of Battlestar Galactica on SciFi’s website because I’m outside of the US. Bullshit, says I. I’m trying a bunch of different proxy websites, but so far no luck. Either it’s impossibly slow or it tells me I need to download Flash to view the site when I don’t.
A THOUSAND TIMES YES
Er…ok, so I’ve only seen clips of the original. Looked cheesy though perhaps nonetheless engaging, it had and has a following.
BUT, though maybe I’m not the best person to testify for the new vs. old, I CAN say that the new BSG is one of the best shows, if not THE best show, I have ever seen.
Let me clarify: this is the SEASON premiere I am talking about, not the series premiere. The show has already had three seasons, and this is the fourth and last. The finale of season three was MIND-BLOWING, so I’m kind of twitching over here knowing that the fourth season premiere is out there but I can’t watch it. =P
I’d like to help but I have a feeling this would run counter to the rules of the SDMB. I’m sure there’s a few US laws lurking around there somewhere which would apply to evading content restrictions on copyright material.
