Never got into the webcomics. Annoys me as they seem to use things like that as an excuse for what they left out of the show.

I keep seeing people bring up what Ron Moore said in interviews about BSG, as if that matters. What is on the screen is what counts.

Carnivale? That show with Clancy Brown???? :scratch:

The comics are just to give more background and expand on the universe. Basically they cover the stuff the show chooses not to. Like it showed West and that guy Claire saved in this season who could breath underwater, working together to get away.

And yeah, Carnivale with Clancy Brown. another victim of early cancellation

Just found out that the president was played by none other than Micahel Dorn! (Worf)

Wow, is that the third ex-Trek star they've had? Not counting McDowell who was in one of the movies.

Course, yet another black president on a tv show. :roll:
You'd think the novelty would wear off now they have a real one.

Yep, opening credits at the beginning of the episode that had the beginning of Volume 4. So was watching for him and Nathan had the meeting with him in the car.

I missed the credits I think. Never spotted his name first time.
Not sure what he was looking at exactly when they were in the car. Certainly wasn't his aide.

Supposedly he left to concentrate on new stuff for NBC (or whichever network it is) to cancel

For those who still watch Heroes (I stopped around season 2), there's a trailer for the new season.

You think they're using the fact Claire's older now as a selling point?

I refuse to watch it out of protest at the obvious exploitation of a young woman. :shifty:
