Battlestar Galactica begins tonight. Sorry if that's too nerdy for you, but it really is one of the best shows I've ever seen.
I tried to resist BSG when it first re-emerged because I assumed it would be a cheesy remake of a cheesy 1970s show. I could not have been more wrong. After catching the pilot on the Universal HD channel, I was hooked. I went and bought the DVDs for Seasons 1, 2, and 2.5, and caught Season 3 on Sci Fi. I am so ready for this new season - it has been a long time.
For those not "in the know" about BSG, you might want to try some of these articles before tonight:
