Default Battlestar Galactica

In what order with The Plan and Razor should this series be watched?

The official point to watch "Razor" is after season 3 and before season 4. However, I feel the best time to watch it is right after "The Captian's Hand" (season 2 episode 17).

"The Plan" should be watched after you've seen the whole series. Unfortunately it was a let-down for me. It felt like a long collection of deleted scenes mixed in with old clips, like low-budget "clip shows" you see on TV some times.

Don't watch either! The series is just fine without them.

I kind of agree. I'm watching through the series for the first time and I watched 'Razor" before the first episode of Season 4 and I was bored throughout. I just wanted the main plot to continue. There was a few cool revelations, but certainly nothing that seems necessary to the main plot IMO.

There are plenty of episodes that don't move the main plot along ("Black Market" comes to mind). I thought "Razor" was fantastic, and was worth watching for the battle scenes and classic cylons alone.

As for "The Plan", meh.

True, but I just didn't like that it took the timeline back to a point that wasn't relevant to what I was watching. As Mango suggested, if I would've watched it in season 2 at its' logical chronological point I probably would've liked it just fine.

We didn't get into this until two years ago, now we are huge fans. The series had us constantly saying "okay, one more!" We got nothing done till the series was complete. Fantastic Science fiction, the darker sides were done with great talent. Remarkable and for us, so sad we did not try it sooner! We love BSG!

I'm also seeing this baby for the first time (currently in Season 3) thanks to my Netflix trial...some of the political nonsense was not needed (abortion episode, though it did underscore exactly where such kind of population control measures can lead), but overall it's a hoot, a delight, emotional rollercoaster, etc. The sex is a bit gratuitous at times but a small complaint. ;-)

Finished this series last week. Loved the first 2 seasons, 'meh' on the second two. Overall it was a decent series but can't touch my favorite shows. It was worth watching but I don't think I plan on ever watching it again.
