Battlestar Galactica is currently my favorite show on television. In anticipation of the commencement of Season 4 on Friday April 4th I just finished watching Season 3 on DVD (what took Universal so long to release these anyway?). As a fan of the original series I was skeptical of the changes that they were making but they really did an excellent job with the remake. Casting Edward James Olmos as Adama was great, and casting Katee Sackhoff as “Starbuck” was brilliant. I really didn’t think that recasting Dirk Benedict’s character as a woman would work… I am glad to write that I was wrong. It was a bold move that really paid off!
Here’s a list of my favorite episodes:
“Tigh Me Up Tigh Me Down”
“Valley of Darkness”
Many guys are more than ready to surrender to the Cylon know as Number Six played by Tricia Helfer, and a few are even smitten by “Boomer”/”Athena” played by Grace Park (a touch of the Asian plague perhaps?), I for one am all about Kara “Starbuck” Thrace. From early on in Season 1 when I mentioned this to my friends the extent of their reactions was, “kinda’ butch isn’t she?”
