So, SCIFIHD aired an 8 hour mini-marathon of last year's episodes on SCIFIHD. After airing several of last years episodes and BSG: Razor in HD, a bit over a week ago, what did they do for these 8 hours?

Windowboxed, upconverted SD. BOOOO!

I agree... boo hiss.

mod note: changed the title of this thread as it clearly refers to this year.

As soon as I noticed they were not in HD, I deleted all of them without watching them...what was SciFi thinking?

I did the exact same thing. But it wasn't just the letterboxing that drove me wild. Why on earth (or any other planet for that matter) would they re-air the season over two weekends in mini-marathon form but SKIP SEVERAL EPISODES in the process. What's the point??!!
