Before everyone gets all upset, hear me out. Most of you here know I'm a massive fan of the show. In fact this is the only show thats actually gotten me onto forums, so you'll understand that the thread title was just a hook to get you here... But the thing is, Battlestar Galactica has set the bar so high, that I can't really appreciate other SciFi shows that I used to enjoy.
I used to watch Stargate avidly, but for the last while, I haven't been following it. So this week, with no BSG to watch (since The Oath [watched it twice in the space of approximately 1hour 26 minutes]), I started catching up on Stargate Atlantis.
It simply doesn't compare.
I remember when SciFi used to be such a care free genre... You could tune in and watch an episode, without really having to have seen the previous episodes. You could enjoy the action, wonder at the technology, and finish up contented with an hour of mildly engaging entertainment. The episodes were pretty much stand alone. Sure, there were some crossovers, and season long story arc's, but nothing on the scale of what BSG has done. It really has redefined the entire genre for me.
I find it hard to believe that even Caprica could follow what has been done with this show. It really is going to be a hard act to follow....
