I watched all of season 3 before I'd ever seen any of the first two seasons. While this was a lot of fun, it's pretty annoying to be constantly asking friends to explain things to me. I don't want that to happen again for Razor. Fortunately, I've gotten my hands on the season 1 and 2 DVDs (finally!), and I've been watching like a madman to catch up. I just made it through Resurrection Ship today, thus concluding the Pegasus episodes for the first 2 seasons (I think!).
My question then: at what point will I be able to watch Razor without that same experience of not knowing everything that's going on? I know it won't take too long to get through the rest of season 2.5, but I'm so antsy to watch Razor tonight after all of these months away from BSG. Will I have enough background by now?
I guess the bigger question for those curious to watch Razor who have never seen BSG is: what are the most prerequisite episodes to watch, or does Razor do a good job of providing background on its own?
