Review: Battlestar Galactica 101 – 108

In the sci-fi world, Ronald D. Moore is a force to be reckoned with. He turned Star Trek: The Next Generation into a fun episodic series. Moving to Deep Space Nine, he made it a character driven show that was fun, had depth and kept evolving throughout its seven years. And this year, he’s given us a Battlestar Galactica revival.
The original series was easy to digest, simple formula in a simple format. It was a nice setup from Glen A. Larson (who later on gave us a decade of TV fun with Magnum P.I. and Knight Rider), but the finishing touch that makes this one special is definitely from Ronald D. Moore’s hands. The magic trick is hard to describe. Just writing the characters like they are isn’t just it. He’s able to make every episode stand on itself, while part of a whole arch. Some episodes are filled with intrigue and moral dillemmas while others have action paced special effects and nailbiting suspense. Twists and turns has every episode pegged as special, nothing alike any other show, sci-fi or not, not even itself. It’s too bad we’re already passed the first half, with only a few more episodes to go this year.

    It’s quite simple, if you look back at when I explained the spamming techniques used to attack this site. Just don’t use h t t p in yer comment, and all is well. We’re not so dense not to know something starting with www is a shortened URL in disguise.
