Alright, I just saw the season 3 premiere, and I'm still enthralled by this show.  They did quite a few things I didn't expect them to, and the paralells drawn between what's going on in the new show and a certain present-day conflict are quite daring.

The lines of "who is right" and "who is wrong" are so blurry, that they're often impossible to make out.

Sorry it took so long, didn't see you're post.

Yes I am, but I speak fluent German.

Actually it seems like the show is going the wrong direction.  First they have that cheezey bit with Baltar as a wastrel president (a common theme in bad fiction) and now they're changing the whole dynamic of the show.  It's like they're jumping the shark when the show is still popular.

that I've got a heart of gold
but I'm unable to share it with others
They call me a poet who'll never have a poem
a tiger with no taste for bone
I'm the wonderful wonderful wizard who's waltzing alone

Well the whole occupation is just a story arc (an awsome one).  It is obvious they are taking the show back soon to the search for earth and the rag tag fleet.

One would think so, but they also changed the show intro, which is generally done once a season at most (hint hint)

So is anyone here still following the show? I for one am and I'm excited about seeing how the third season will end!

This season has had some great and some horrible moments, but I can't help but look forward to the cliffhanger..

Meh, I stopped watching when they switched to Sundays.  It's still a good show, but I just can't catch it those nights.
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.

Did you stop watching altogether or just on that day? Because I think there are reruns on a different day of the week as well.. Plus, there's legal and not-that-legal downloading as well.. ;)

So in this latest episode they killed off a major character.  I am assuming the character was the Cylon in hiding we were promised.  What do you all who are still following the show think?

This season 3 is soooo bad compared to the first 2 seasons.  They are getting all psycho-crazy.. bring back the good normal plots and the action!

I will admit that they've done a major shift in focus of the show, but I can't say it's bad at all...it's just differently good (if that makes any sense).

***Spoiler Warning***

Season 2 we had the faceoff between Galactica and Pegasus, in this one we had the awesome rescue at the colony...and who knows what they'll do at the season finale.

So does anyone still watch this show?  I just watched the mini series through Season 4 part 1 and I'm in love.  One of the best shows ever imo.

Yeah its a great show its just too bad we have to wait until next year for the final episodes.  Hope they do some interesting things with that cliffhanger.
