Last night, I finally got around to watching the "Battlestar Galactica" mini-series--the two-part, three-hour pilot for the current television series--and let me tell you, it was fan-fracking-tastic. Seriously, I can't believe this show started out so incredibly good. (I was going to say I couldn't think of another show that began at such high quality, but then I started thinking of them--"Star Trek," "The Prisoner," "Monty Python's Flying Circus"...)
"Battlestar Galactica" has got a totally engaging story, tense action scenes, moving drama, fascinating characters, awesome special effects, and it deals with some really interesting concepts. I also love the clever references to the original series that it manages to work in (although I'm sure I'm missing most of them, as I haven't watched the original show in many winters). It's the best show on television right now, as far as I know.
I'm so pumped for the premier of season two tonight! Woo hoo!
