Wow, only 26 left of the original 151. So much to look back on...
Well, I finished Season 1 of Battlestar Galactica yesterday. Overall, I was very impressed with it. My initial thoughts on it were curiosity, mixed with a bit of hesitancy, mainly because of all the BSG fanboys. Sometimes the general audience of a show can lead you to dislike something before you give it a chance. There are a lot of similarities one can draw to the show Firefly, one of my favorite shows. The main enemy of humanity was created by humans, there really are no aliens living in space, we have colonized other planets, the main characters are both heroic yet flawed, which makes them very relateable. The only thing BSG has that Firefly doesn't is loads of specail effects. In Firefly, they were mostly on the run, which is the same in BSG, but at least in BSG they have fighter pilots and such. Serenity didn't even have guns... Well, I could go on, but let's save it for a rainy day. Both are good shows, ou should check out. Peace out!
