Once in a while - not very often, to be honest - you will happen on a tv show that utterly and completely captivates you in every way. To me, Battlestar Galactica was that show. I don't know what qualities or aspects of the show that drew me in to such an extent, suffice it to say that I watched the whole series in a week's time or so.
I am not a movie or tv critic, so I will not give the show a rating - no season ratings, no episode ratings, no overall rating from me in this little review. Someone else mentioned the religious aspect of the show in a favorable way, and I have to agree. It gave the show a whole new dimension that I have never experienced in another tv show or movie. Except for the original Star Wars trilogy, that is.
To me, Battlestar Galactica was refreshing, highly entertaining and devastating for my productivity and social life. What more can you ask of a space opera?
