I finally watched a little bit of Battlestar Galactica today (okay, five hours minus commercials... the original miniseries/movie and the two-hour pilot), on the insistence of a coworker and the suggestions of various friends and readers. It is indeed quite excellent. Assuming that it survives for another season, it will be nice to have some sort of sci-fi non-comedy around to watch when Enterprise is gone.
Enterprise becomes Battlestar Galactica. Arrested Development becomes Family Guy. Circle of life. (I guess it's not guaranteed that E and AD are not going to be around; AD hasn't technically been cancelled yet, and there has been a very big push to keep E around recently. But, I never was a very good optimist.)
