Battlestar Galactica is, in my opinion, the best scifi show ever. Now don't get me wrong, I adore Star Trek in all its incarnations and Firefly also sits at the top of my scifi list along with Stargate, Taken, The 4400, and a host of other shows. But BSG is just the best best frakking show ever and here's why:
1. Characters to love - and hate. Aside from the cylons - some of whom were easy to hate, others not so much - we had Starbuck, a kick-ass pilot turned visionary, Boomer aka Sharon, who not only tried to kill Adama but NEVER EVEN KNEW SHE WAS A FRAKKING CYLON!!!! And Baltar, who was practically responsible for the destruction of the colonies because of his lust for Six, played by the ever so sexy Tricia Helfer. But hey, who can blame him, right? And that's just three of the amazing characters.
2. A killer plot not to mention subplots to die for that were not only amazingly well-written but also spoke to the times we lived in.
3. Special effects to rival the big screen and - according to my brother the geek - accurate depictions of space flight.
It also won a bunch of awards and was praised by a wide range of reviewers. If you haven't seen this show I highly recommend you get it to watch. You won't be disappointed.
