BSG Resumes Tonight

Filed under: Entertainment,Television — Amazing Jake @ 7:31 pm

Lest regular readers fear this site focuses too much on politics and the news of the day, I thought I’d point out that Season Two of Battlestar Galactica resumes tonight on the Sci-Fi channel.  Tonight’s episode picks up where the mid-season finale left off, with the Galactica facing off against the Battlestar Pegasus, which is, of course, a reimagining of the classic episode of the original series.

I’m pretty impressed with the show as a whole.  You could easily remove the science fiction elements and make the show a “standard” TV drama with well-written episodes about the relationship between civilian and military aspects of society, family relationships, unintended consequences of scientific advances, and many other thematic elements that are not well represented on network TV.

BSG is one of the best shows on TV that you’re not watching (in fact, Time magazine just rated it the best show on TV), and I can’t wait to see it tonight.
