Ill + Battlestar Galactica Season 2

I've not been very well for the last few days. In fact I spent the majority of yesterday in bed either sleeping, reading or watching DVDs. I saw the sunrise this morning in our back garden equipped with a lemsip and a bowl of cereal which was very nice - especially as the weather at present is fairly warm that sitting outside in only a dressing gown doesn't make anything chilly...

One thing this last couple of days has seen is my return to Battlestar Glactica and I have finally started watching Season 2 after a couple of years away from the show. Currently upto Episode 9. My previous comments about the show (Battlestar Galactica Season One; 30th July 2006) are just reinforced with the first part of season 2 - in that a number of the characters have severe personality disorders that should never have led them to any position of power or should have seen them removed for the safety of the rest of the fleet, regardless of the short supply of manpower or not. There are a number of characters that are just liabilities to the others.

I'm going to watch the rest of Season 2 but I think it'll have to improve or leave me on a really bg cliffhanger to pick up Season 3 at this rate. When a show/characters starts irritating me more than it is giving me enjoyment that's a big glowing neon sign to me to stop wasting my time and watch something else.

Unfortunately something that has suffered the last few days is my internet useage and emails. I'm hoping to start blitzing those again either later today if my head clears further or tomorrow. I feel fairly confident that I'll be bright and happy (or near enough) come Friday/Saturday as I have improved alot overnight compared to how I was feeling yesterday.

The show certainly haas peaks and troughs but, overall, I've enjoyed it. I can lend you Season 3 and Razor (and as much of Season 4 as has been shown ...).

And funny you should mention cliffhangers ...

Yes please. Certainly up for Season 3 and Razor if available.

When does Season 4 finish on TV? Is it the last season?

One of the key situations in a series of BSG is that each season they strip away goodwill generated and the positive feeligns you have to characters. They show them to be deeply flawed humans and then make you evaluate them in a different light each season.

To me its one of the finest points and allows us to explore the central question of wether mankind actually deserves to survive.

Sleeping, reading, watching dvds? Sounds like my life at the moment, though that is more to do with not being bothered to get my 8 month pregnant ass up.

I thought that Season 3 of BSG wasn't as good as 2, but season 4 is definitely back to kicking butt. It is worth it to keep watching, how many SF shows do we get these days that last more than one season?

Yup, you'll get a cliffhanger at the end of season 2 :-)

I thought season 3 was the best yet.
(roll on more of season 4!)

Get well soon!

Sleeping, reading or watching DVDs. Sounds alright. I spent today putting things in boxes and talking nonsense, again.

Galatica rules. Wait until you get to the season 4 mini-break and cry with the rest of us. ;)
