If you haven't watched the show yet, Battlestar tells the story of the last humans in space trying to find their way to Earth as they fight off man-made artificial intelligence gone awry called Cylons. They're kind of like the robots in Jame Cameron's Terminator. And that was the main appeal for me, I wanted to see these Cylons in action. But they're not the only thing that makes this show so interesting. There's plenty of drama.
Starbuck is such an intriguing character, you never know what's she's going to do. Her relationship with the younger Adama is increasing complex. At first I wanted them to be together but now I'm not so sure. Then there's Admiral Adama played by Edward James Olmos. He commands every scene and whoever cast him deserves some major kudos. The love story between human and cylon is also delightful. And the episodes with Lucy Lawless are always fun. She looks so much different from her Xena: Warrior Princess days.
Grace Park (Sharon) and Kandyce McClure (Dee) are on my ones to watch list because with the right roles down the line they could become movie stars.
And I could go on...Battlestar Galactica is that impressive. I've only watched a couple handfuls of episodes courtesy of the SciFi Channel's marathon but they've made a fan of me.
The new and final season of Battlestar Galactica starts tomorrow at 10 p.m. on the SciFi Channel. Give it a shot, it might surprise you too.
