To dvd owners


YOU ARE GOING TO HELL FOR BUYING THIS!!!

No, just kidding.

Real question: Do the 8 eps have a conclusive story arc? Carnivale kicked me in the crotch with its totally unresolved last episode, will I feel any similar testicular cramps with BOD? Its one thing for an awesome show to be cut down in its prime (Carnivale, Dead Like me, Wonderfalls, the list goes on...) but to have the last episode give a partially satisfying amount of closure... its painful to know you'll never find out what happens.

I had wanted to check the show out, but before I got a chance it was canned.

Hope its good, I just ordered it offa amazon.

Unfortunately, and because the show was abruptly cancelled, there are some story lines that are not neatly wrapped up, but the story is nevertheless still very compelling and beautifully written and acted, so you will certainly enjoy it.

the last two episodes open up a lot of new story lines - right up until the last scene new things are being opened up. while the lost threats were a shame I'm glad I got the DVD set and I really enjoyed the series. I've now watched some of the episodes a few times and the lines still make me laugh out loud - and Aidan Quinn is great!!!

I so agree Ma! Aidan really handled comedy well. He doesn't do much comedy, but he's good in an understated way.

The show was slow to start, but as things started to unfold it got better. It certainly won't leave you in a lurch like Carnivale did...but I wish I could have seen where BOD would have ended up with Daniel's brother in bed with the mob.

spoilers:






















in the unaired episodes:

It is revealed that Victorias husband Charlie who was thought dead in the pilot is actually alive.

Peter is brutally attacked by some thugs after Adam jkingly yells out that hes gay.

Peter is outted to the bishops

Daniels brother is somehow in cahoots with the mob. Unfortunately, the story is shown in the last ep, and all we ever see is photos of him shaking hands with the vaporreli brothers.

The very last moment of the last recorded episode has Adam telling Daniel that he got Rogers daughter, Carolyn pregnant.

The very last shot was fantastic -- Daniel nearly fainting when he hears his son got the girlfriend pregnant and Jesus tipping him upright again.

Kind of cruel to have the show yanked with 3-4 juicy plot lines opened up. Alas.
