For the past three days or so I’ve been addicted to Battlestar Galactica. Damn you Jacek for feeding my addiction! = D
I’ve actually fallen into two shows that have held me at bay. One was canceled a year or so back and the other, mentioned above, is flying high. Happily the canceled show will soon be on the big screen so WEEE!
Firefly and Battlestar Galactica… Space! Stories about us flesh bags and our silly problems… in space! It’s so happy happy joy joy that a fly DID marry a bumble bee!
The contrast between the two is profound. Firefly has humor – check, witty dialog – check, a feeling of hope – check. Battlstar takes it the other way with tension – check, desperation – check,
Both have something in common – unpredictability. At times you’ll know what is going to happen but the something comes along and THWAPS you in the grey matter leaving you stunned and ready for more.
It’s so nice having the opportunity to watch the shows on a PC, oh yea and a DVD player. Of course the files aren’t high quality like a DVD would be but it sure is nice not having commercials to interupt the flow of the show. Yea bittorrent! Er, Jacek! = )
Ahh. TV shows haven’t been this much fun since… well, Oz, West Wing, B5, Buffy. Hmm, I guess it’s been a while. Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah. 05-04-2005 11:34 pm
