Battlestar Galactica

Got the four-hour miniseries on DVD last week, and this week watched the deleted scenes. Nothing important in them, I can see why pretty much all of them were cut, but the fun bit was that the CGI was only roughed in for all the effect shots. You had characters peering anxiously at blank computer screens or out windows at the Green Screen (it must be hard to react well when there is nothing to react to).

The vipers often had nametags floating in space next to them, and an explosion was just an expanding sphere with "BOOM!" written on it. Almost makes me wish you had the option to watch the show this way. You'd get a better appreciation of what the actors and effects people do.

Are fistfights overlaid with "BAM!" and "SOCK!" and "BIFF!"? ;)
