Recently I’ve been watching Battlestar Galactica on DVD (well, mostly listening to first season commentaries) and I was reminded of a thought that I had while watching the third season finale. Now I know there’s been some discussion about this being the series last season and whether or not it was because of the rating the show had. The thing is, while I’m sure that ratings factored in (on television how could it not) I don’t really think that was the deciding factor for the fourth season being the last one. Ronald D. Moore has said time and again that BSG is a show that has definite arc and that the end of the show is finally getting to Earth. When I watched the finale back in March I remember clearly thinking “If next season isn’t the last one, they’re just padding the thing out.” The third series finally so clearly points them in the direction of finding Earth that I can’t imagine that how it could take more than one more season to get there, so I’m really sort of glad that the upcoming season is the last one.

Disclaimer: While I’ve done my best to accurately represent what was said in the podcast, I have taken some liberties in the presentation. I’ve eliminated some interjections that disrupted the flow of the questions and some stuttering or other vocal stumbles. Also, there are some bits that were unintelligible due to train noises and speaker overlap. I’ve tried my best to guess what the speaker was saying but I may have made some mistakes. The abbreviation AM is used for all members of the audience as I could not think of any simpler way to distinguish them.

Part Two will be posted either Tomorrow of Friday.

Because I missed the first few minutes (and I mean few), I'm going to have wait until later to watch BSG. I can't bring myself to watch anything that I missed the first few minutes of, it's an annoying aspect of my personality. Hopefully I'll still be up.

I rarely ever do reviews for the shows I love and I was just thinking about why. And I figured it out. Because while the details may change, I my reaction is, almost always, I loved it. In fact an episode of a series has to be really, really sub-par for me to even dislike (let alone hate). The shows I currently love are Battlestar Galactica, Doctor Who (current) and Veronica Mars. Out of all the episodes that have air for these three shows, I've only hated one (Black Market-BSG)and mildly disliked two (Weapons of Class Destruction, "One Angry Veronica",Veronica Mars)--yes that does mean I haven't disliked a single ep of Doctor Who (the closet I got was "Dalek"). So out of a combined total of 91 (that's 42 VM, 33 BSG and 16 DW)aired episodes, I enjoyed 88.

It's not that I'm easy to please, it's just that I'm hard to displease.

I am now terribly, terribly spoiled for the BSG finale-finale. Am not happy about this. Stupid forum posters. Ah well, there's not much I can do about it now. I hate being spoiled for shows that I like. It takes a some of the intensity away from the episodes. I guess that's why they're called "spoilers".

I finally watched The Captain's Hand and Downloaded. I liked both episodes very much, which is something I haven't been able to say for a while. Still, I didn't feel like watching BSG again so, I think I'll probably end up watching Lay Down Your Burdens Pt. 1 next week along with the second half.

I haven't watched the last two episodes of Battlestar Galactica. I don't understand why though. It's not like I've lost interest in the show or anything. It's just that I usually don't feel like watching TV when it's on. I'll see if I can get caught up before tomorrow.

On another note, is there anyone out there who has a subscription to last.fm, Pandora or any other music service? I've been thinking about subscribing but I'm not sure which one to get. I've tried out the free version of both Pandora and last.fm and I'll have to say that Pandora seems to work better for me at finding music I like(it also seems to work period, which sometimes seems a problem with last.fm) but I do prefer the interface of last.fm.

I've been catching up on Battlestar Galactica and I think it's a good show. And like any good show, it gets immediately compared to my favorite show Veronica Mars. And there isn't much about these shows that are similar and my point actually concerns how they are different. Despite all of the darkness that is present on Battlestar Galactica (I mean it's basically a show about what happens after the end of the world), I think there's a basic sense that despite the horrible things that happen on the show, there's a sense that people have the capacity for great good. There's an element of hope about the nature of humanity. That there is a great deal of good in it.

On Veronica Mars, the basic moral that I've gotten from the entire series is that "People suck, really, really hard. I mean really, really HARD". The epynonymous character is an admitted misanthrope and just about most of the characters are morally questionable (and even the ones that aren't do things that aren't exactly kosher). My point is that the show with the "rag-tag group of survivors after the end of the world" is more hopeful about the nature of the human spirit than the one with the "girl detective".

Well, at least I find that intriguing.
