Serenity

Ah, sweet Serenity!

Yup, I saw Serenity this weekend. Actually, I saw it twice, one with Sandy and once with our oldest son.

I couldn’t have enjoyed the movie more. It was classic Joss with great dialog and an engaging plot. As my friend Rick said, the only downside was that it would have been a cool second season…

Ah well, perhaps, if enough of you go out to see it, there will be serenity II…

Battlestar Galactica

I have to admit that I was surprised by my reaction to the re-imaged Battlestar Galactica. I was prepared to be disappointed by a cheap, badly done rip-off that was looking for a quick buck.

What I actually found was one of the most intelligent, gritty, true-to-life science fiction shows that has ever been produced. Okay, that’s my opinion, but I’ve seen a lot of TV sci-fi, lots…

Are they other top quality sci-fi shows, sure; SG-1, B5, Firefly, and even Lost (although is hard to tell if it’s a genre show or not yet).

So, please, if you haven’t checked out BG, please do!

First try the official website Battlestar Galactica at Scifi.com. After that, have a look at battlestargalactica.com

Once you’re convinced to give it a try, go buy season 1!
