Battlestar Galactica: Season Three
|Never have I been so disheartened with science fiction fandom as when Battlestar Galactica lost the Hugo for best dramatic presentation, short form to the ponderous and preposterous Dr. Who this summer in Los Angeles. Not only was the Pegasus episode of BSG a pinnacle installment of the hands-down best science fiction television program ever created, but Dr. Who is simply unwatchable drivel.|
Well, I no longer have any concern over this horror repeating itself. There is simply no plausible -- I even dare say possible -- way in hell that the world did not just witness next years Hugo recipient for short form on Friday evening.
Exodus, Part 2 was the single best episode of a science fiction television program I have ever witnessed. It was an event; something I feel privileged to have been able to see as it was first broadcast.
If you have not yet become a fan of the new Galactica, I haven't the words to describe just what you are missing. Season One, Season 2.0, and Season 2.5 are available as DVD box sets, and Season Three episodes are available to be watched on SciFi.com.
This is the SF TV show that literally grinds beneath its heel all that have come before. (Yes, even Firefly.) You will laugh and cry and think, and perhaps not hate your television quite so much.
