Irregular Wednesdays will be a new feature here at your one stop shop for Sci Fi rants and information, welcome to todays edition,” Battlestar Galactica Razor”.
Sure, for the past few years Sci Fi has enjoyed a Renaissance (goodness, I love them big wordies). Doctor Who, Heroes just to name a few but there have also been so big big budget shows that for the most part are …… no so good, and yet they keep annoying me by taking up valuable space on the schedule.
It occurred to me, and was pushed into my face, that in my rant about the cancelling of The Dresden Files, I had pushed hard at everything the Sci Fi Network was doing wrong, and, quite frankly, giving them no credit for what they are doing right.. This begs the question, are they doing anything right?. Well yes and no. Let me state, right off the bat, that I am a BIG FAN. HUGE FAN. COMIC STORE GUY FROM THE SIMPSONS FAN! That having been said, let’s take a completly biased look.
Perhaps one of the funniest low key science fiction shows ever produced. Yes, the effects are good, the stories are well crafted and the characters are becoming better developed as Season 2 progresses. What makes this series really interesting to me is the way that the writers have chosen to keep the overall tone so very sedate. Even the most terrifying situation is met with a sense of calm……… and, it’s an interesting take. From what I can hear from others, an acquired taste.. Perhaps this is the sushi of sci fi?
