BSG: The Movie

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2005

Blog of the day: A show that has its own blog has to be hip.

The management apologizes for not blogging yesterday. The management was watching the Battlestar Galactica miniseries when the management should have been blogging, answering email, and sleeping. The parties responsible are aware of their nefarious influence on the management and are cackling merrily in their Evil Overlord Castle.

I did see the miniseries when it first came out and I meant to blog about it, really I did, but the best-laid plans of mice and bloggers gang aft agley. Way back when, I was put off by the Hot Cylon Babes in Leather, but as with LotR character assassination it’s not so shocking when you know it’s coming.

I was never into the original BSG, but Veronica was so I had to watch lots of it. The new version is a massive improvement. (If only we could say that about the late ENT over TOS…) The characters are interesting and the camerawork is great. But then, I love it when planets full of people get wiped out by Borg-like critters, so the miniseries was right up my alley. I’m not sure I’ll be nearly as entertained by the day-to-day character stuff of the series.
