Farewell to Battlestar Galactica
Sadly this Friday will usher out the final episode of Battlestar Galactica. Based on the roots of the 1978 TV show, this new version was resurrected in 2003 and has since grown to be a standard by which many science fiction ventures are now measured.
This series has been dark, but well written. The characters are every bit as complex as characters on shows such as the Sopranos. I didn’t get into this show until the third season, but borrowed the previous two seasons of DVDs from a friend and got caught up and since then I have been caught up in all of it. I am sorry to see it go, but there is some hope. The SiFi network, soon to be SyFy, will be running a prequel starting in 2010. This series will be called Caprica and will take place before everything got weird. I hope the writers can hold to their present high standards.
SiFi will have an eleven hour marathon on Friday before the two-hour serries finale. So don’t call me on Friday because I won’t be answering the phone.
