Thats not a bad line up! Outcasts was better than I thought it'd be. Shame it wasn't picked up for a second run.

Yay! The more BSG airs, the better. Even if it's on a channel with a limited viewership.

It gives a chance for a whole new legion of viewers to smack themselves for not watching this show earlier....

And actually, in the US at least, BBC-A is getting a steadily increasing audeince. But sadly, most are watching just for "Top Gear" and "Star Trek-TNG" reruns, but hey, you never know; they might stumble upon BSG and say, "Hey, what's THIS?" :w00t:

And you might want to watch next time they rerun series one of NuDoctor Who as well (the Christopher Eccleston year; 2005).
Some mighty fine TV, that was.... :cylonclap:

I've heard many people complain that BBC America is straying from airing British shows. I just think those people are a bit narrow-minded... it's more a case that executives at least have some clue as to what their viewers want and most of them love sci fi (besides going for the British shows). More power to BBC America for capitalizing on SyFy's stupidity of trying to broaden away from sci fi.
