Battlestar Galactica

As usual I am late to discover any worthwhile media related production. So for most of you this will be old news. However for those hibernating sci-fi fans like myself Battlestar Galactica is my latest find and one that you should definitely check out. Apparently there was a much older tv series by the same name but the Battlestar to which I am referring aired for 4 seasons from 2004 (2003 including the mini-series) until 2008. I'm currently finishing up season 2.

The best part of this series is the level of character development and the fairly successful balance that the writers have managed between presenting us with an array of deeply flawed characters while still maintaining the audience's sympathy for them and the hope that everything will be alright in the end.
