I'm watching the 2003 Battlestar Galactica series for the first time, and loving it! I've come across this post, which purports to be the ultimate BSG viewing order guide. I've just finished season 2, episode 17, The Captain's Hand, and this guide now recommends I watch Razor, a TV movie that was the start of season 4, before watching the next episode of season 2. It also recommends that I mute two bits of dialog near the end of Razor to prevent any spoilers for season 3, which I'm fine with doing. BSG fans of Metafilter - what do you think? Is watching Razor now the best idea for continuity of the story? Will I spoil anything for myself by doing so?

How many times did Gaius Baltar actually save Laura Roslin's life in Battlestar Galactica? [warning: here be spoilers] [more inside]
The Essential BSG: I have a Sunday afternoon and evening and I want to revisit the reimagined Battlestar Galactica. Which episodes MUST I watch? [more inside]
A series of series and serialized sub-serials. Seriously, basically help me make some mini-series - there will be spoilers.
*Spoiler Alert*Never Read This Thread (but none within the question itself): I am hoping to create a set of custom original miniature series "arcs", highlighting various things; characters/topics/ story-arcs/plot-arcs... any sort of "shortening of a longer series" that you love, or like or know.

Will the Battlestar Galactica boardgame (no expansions) still work OK with seven people? I have a clued-up bunch of tastefully nerdy friends who've never played it before, but there are seven of us (the game says it's for '3-6'). Will this present problems? Are there any rules hacks we should introduce?

Classical Music Filter: Can anyone recommend pieces of classical piano music in a similar style to the Sonatica by Bear McCreary from Battlestar Galactica? I have some Olivier Messiaen stuff in a similar vein but would love more in the same mellow, slightly offkilter and whistful piano style. Thanks!
I'm interested in coming to a more academic understanding of Battlestar Galactica (particularly Cylons). Are there any resources or texts out there which can help me? [more inside]
I have a couple plot/setting-related questions about part of Battlestar Galactica's first season, and was hoping to get non-spoilery answers if possible. [more inside]
