Battlestar Galactica

Published by at 4:13 pm under Blog,TV

I have just started to watch Battlestar Galactica on the recommendation of many people, most recently Lette.Battlestar Galactica It seems to be everywhere I look at the moment, due to the start of the new series. Anthony has been twittering about it, Bock is giving up his political commentary to devote his time to it, Sarah Carey of GUBU is in a similar situation to me, Alexia is already talking about a prequel, even Will Wheton‘s life goes on hold for BSG!!

So, how have I missed this show? I’m a sci-fi fan, I watch far too much TV, and yet, I have let this incredible show slide by.

Battlestar GalacticaI never had any fond and fleeting memories of the original 70’s show. I knew of its existence, but didn’t know much about it. When the ‘re-imagined’ show began, I watched a half an episode one evening and didn’t understand what was going on (Gaius Baltar was in two places at the same time and having a bunch of conversations at once – it was too much for me). It is only now when the excitement over the new series became infectious that I wanted to find out what I was missing.

Last week, I bought the new series of House and a boxset of the first three series of BSG (including the mini-series) and I have been engrossed in it since then. I am currently half way through the third series and my interest hasn’t wained even slightly. The only negative thing is the freaky BSG dreams I had on Sunday night. I may be OD-ing a little on Adama and his crew.

    Good man, Darren. Keep spreading the good word.

    You know what I like about BSG? Strange as fuck! I like that.

    By the way, didn’t Baltar look a lot like John Waters?

    lol @Bock

    At first I thought you were referring to the Pink Flamingos/Hairspray John Waters. Baltar does NOT look like him. But yes, he does look like the, eh, Eurovision Songwriter, John Waters. ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Lette It depends on what books you read.
