BSG Update! Holy Frak! I am Obsessed!

Now... as I mentioned in an earlier post, I have been watching Battlestar Galactica on SciFi Channel... and this show has overtaken my life like few things have... this show is amazing. I now have all of Season 1, Season 2, and the mini-series on my computer (thanks to iTunes!) and I have purchased the "Season Pass" for Season 3,which is currently airing on TV, but with the Pass, each episode that comes out is automatically downloaded to your computer - very cool feature of iTunes) - Actually, I guess you could say I haven't been watching it on SciFi Channel.. since I've been watching it all on iTunes.. but you get the picture. The Battlestar website (see link above) and iTunes have a FREE "The Story So Far" piece you can download which sums up everything before Season 3 (mini-series, season one and season two) in 43 minutes (and it is very well done). It has some spoilers... but I watched it before I watched any episodes and it didn't spoil anything for me.. . I was still captivated all the way through.

The intricacies of this show are astounding... the story and characters are deep and thoughtful, the action is awesome, there are cool robots, hot chicks, giant space battleships, political drama, mystical/spiritual drama, phycological drama (all manner of "human" drama actually, even though some of the characters aren't human), great acting and writing all around... and the show just keeps getting better and better. The first few episodes of Season 3 were absolutley rivetting.. I have never seen a TV show that was this good. If you are not watching this show... What the blazes is wrong with you?!?!?!? Thanks to the miracle of YouTube here is a clip from the escape from New Caprica scene from the second part of "Exodus".. the tiny YouTube screen doesn't do it justice.. but it is still awesome!

The show has some really cool devices at its disposal that other shows don't... mainly the ability to have more than one "copy" of the same character in existence at the same time... makes for soem really cool stories and plot twists. One of my favorite characters Lt. Sharon "Boomer" Valerii is one such character...
Two other things it has going for it:

#1- Really Awesome Cylon Centurions


This should sum it up for you!
