something that has always kind of bothered me, though only in the cases where the menu gives more away than the trailer, an article about DVD menu spoilers.

Just read that this morning. It annoys the hell out of me too.

Another thing that has been bothing me lately, although not entirely related, is the fact that right after the opening credits of Battlestar Galactica, they show a ten second breakneck montage of everything that is going to happen in that episode. Wouldn't that montage be better suited for the end of the previous episode? Gah.

I've seen this on some recent episodes, but not all of them. One in particular I remember was the one in which Apollo was shown adrift in space and they told the events that led up to and after that moment. In other episodes I've definitely seen them show extended recaps (like 2-3 minutes worth) to set up a storyline, but not what you're describing.

It's also entirely possible I'm simply not paying enough attention.
It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. and we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

It's possible: :tongue:

Actually, first they have a "previously on BSG" segment, then they have about 5-10 minutes of the show, then right after the opening credits, they have this segment, in every damn episode, where they show quick flashes of stuff that's going to happen in this episode. It's damn annoying.

"American versions"? What the hell does that mean? I get all my BSG torrents, like all my other shows, from American sites, and American groups. Why have I not been told there is a difference? And how can there be British versions; the latest episodes don't air here until like 12 weeks after they air in America.

I'm gonna call you a liar.

On a related note.

I rented the movie: He loves me, he loves me not with Audrey Tatou.

On the cover of the dvd you see an image of the movie, in which you see Audrey communicating with the other lead actor in a bathroom. As I am watching the movie, we see the perspective of Audrey. Then I see the scene in which Audrey is at a party and goes to the bathroom. But you dont see any scene in the bathroom. So I already figured there was more too it. Anyway it does give away some details. Cause the entire movie I am waiting for that moment. Not that it mattered much cause I already figured the movie out after 5 minutes.

BitTorrent sites put episodes up as soon as any country has it. For instance, all Stargate Atlantis episodes are aired on a Canadian network before airing in the US, therefore it's those Canadian versions that end up on BT sites. Last year, the UK had BSG before the US.
