Battlestar Galactica

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.)

Battlestar Galactica has already been renewed for a 20-episode second season. The first season ended really well (already aired in Europe). 2nd season should be great.

Ah, cool.

Somebody must have their RSS reader set to refresh pretty frequently.

Brad Smith said...

Heh. Yeah, I guess every 30 minutes is fairly frequent.

I loved the first season of Battlestar. Once a week is (was) not fast enough for me though, so I had to obtain the season all at once. It's great.

30 minute RSS refresh? Heh.
