So, I finished watching Battlestar Galactica (2004) for the first time around six months ago, composed this post in a word doc, and promptly forgot about it. And I'm still late to the party, seeing as I should have watched this 15 years ago. But, anyway, my thoughts:



I mean, wow. How the hell did I miss watching this for so long? Properly, that is. I didn't realise there was a miniseries till early this year, and I'd been very confused as to what was going on when I tried starting with '33'.

Battlestar Galactica is not only a good sci-fi show. It's a brilliant sci fi show, and one that I am now firmly in love with. From the deliberate shaky-cam that enhances the documentary-esque feel of the show, to the CG that looks way better than what most of today's shows are shoving in your face (*cough*BattleAtTheBinaryStarsWasBoringAsFuck*cough*), to motherfucking. Admiral. Adama. Jesus, I didn't know that Gaff from Blade Runner could be so fucking awesome, but I was swiftly corrected.

The music is brilliant (considering that Bear McCreary also did the music for 'Outlander', I'm not surprised it's so fucking good), and that opening theme is chill-inducing. The show is deep without being pretentious, political without being head-bashy, dark without being edgy and shitty (*cough*STD*cough*).

Hell, even the opening scene is rife with symbolism and hidden meaning! I could go on for hours about the red dress, the opening line 'Are you Alive?', the 'kiss of death'...hell, people could write essays on this shit!

The tl;dr? BSG is fucking awesome. Watch it, if you already haven't.
