Another teevee recommendation

Frankly, the best show on television right now is "Battlestar Galactica" on the SciFi Channel. I know, I know. You think I'm geeking out on you, but you must trust me. This is the new face of Galactica:

Battlestar Galactica: Last Supper

Gone is the 70s camp. In its place, we are given a true drama detailing the struggle of human beings struggling to survive in the face of their enemies who also happen to be their own creations--robots or Cylons. Some cylons look like people now. They're evolving, and they have a plan. And here's the fun part. The battle is spiritual as well as physical. These human beings are polytheistic, but the cylons are monotheistic. The cylons are basically on a religious jihad to eradicate human beings.

The relationships are realistic. The characters are flawed. Morality is one big grey area. The main cylon woman is seriously creepy and hot as hell. While watching, you will feel your sympathies switching from human to cylon as you get to see both points of view. Oh, and the ships in space don't shoot lasers or deathbeams. They shoot bullets and missles. It's a war story in space, not Star Trek.

And, there's one more thing that I can't quite put my finger on that keeps dragging me back to the television set on Friday nights:

Oh, yeah. That's it. ;)
