Description

The critically acclaimed science-fiction hit series returns for its second season. Picking up where the first season left off, Battlestar Galactica continues to chronicle the adventures of a ragtag fleet of humans, the sole survivors of a devastating nuclear attack by the robot Cylons. Faced with an un-winnable battle against a deadly enemy, they are forced to flee under the protection of their one remaining warship, the outdated Battlestar Galactica. Academy-Award nominated actors Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnell return as Commander Adama and President Roslin, who must lead these last remnants of humanity in search of a new home — a planet called Earth. But as the events of the second season unfold, it becomes clear that more threatens this fragile society than external forces. Massive fear, paranoia, and political ambition — all classic plagues to developing civilizations — wear away at the already-fatigued fleet.

SWEET/DUDE

this is the best thing that has ever happened to me. this is the new star wars of our generation. it has so many twists and turns it's out of my pants exciting.

A remarkable sci-fi achievement

When I heard Sci-Fi was doing a revival of Battlestar Galactica, I cringed. Even when it was new back in the late 1970's, it was cheesy, predictable and thankfully short-lived. I ignored the promos and went on with my life. Then Apple launched downloadable video content, including the new Battlestar Galactica. I figured, "What the hell?" and paid the $2 to see what it was like. I was surprised at how good it was, mostly because they spent as much time on the acting and characters as the sci-fi stuff, which is -- when done well -- just a setting for a human story, not the story itself. Well, I was impressed. Then my wife got me a new iPod, with video. I downloaded the full miniseries from iTunes (about 3 hours). I was blown away. Action and acting and writing and some good special effects. Real (well, mostly) physics and real (well, mostly) injury and death in a true struggle for survival. I was hooked. Since then, I've bought the full Season 1 and all of Season 2 (so far). It's great. Even my wife loves it. I haven't liked a sci-fi show this much since Deep Space Nine, and this is quite a bit better. Doubt it? Just download an episode or two. At most, you'll be out $4 if you don't like it. But beware -- you might just LOVE it.

Best Thing on Television

Have you ever thought to yourself, "TV Sucks!" Well this show is here to prove you wrong. It feels more like a well orchistrated Novel than a TV series. It's overt conflict, strife and estasy are wonderfully balanced with subtle emotions and allusions to the more tenious threads of human existence. Or less pompously, the show does a really wonderful job and dancing between cartoonishness and poetry. I'm not a huge SciFi fan, but there are those few works that are special, that both take us out of this world and at the same time show us something profound about our own lives, this is one.
