Continues to show its excellence
on 3 November 2007
Battlestar Galactica is in my opinion the finest science-fiction television series that presently exists, being a hardcore fan of the genre it takes a lot to be able to come out with such a comment, since I have been watching sci-fi television series for as long as I can remember. In the space of a year, from when I first saw the pilot episode Battlestar Galactica has become my absolute favourite television programme, bar none.
Series three picks up the torch from the end of series two and continues to take the show in brilliant new directions. For the first time since the very beginning the show begins to feature story lines that show a great deal of relevance towards the modern day, featuring stories about suicide bombings as well as "terrorism" from a perspective that is quite alien to a western audience. Character development continues to get better and better, finally managing to look at the relationship of Apollo and Starbuck without teasing the audience in the way that the previous series have.
All I can say is that I am not sure how patient I can be to await the release of series four, especially since I watched the entirety of series three in the space of a week. I seriously cannot recommend Battlestar Galactica strongly enough.
