Galactica: Coda

I will say this, and then not another word on Battlestar Galactica until October: It takes balls the size of armadillos to end a season like that, to totally twist your TV show on its axis and send it in a completely different direction. To quote my man Bill Cunningham: “What’s a war without a prison camp?”

I don’t know where it’s going, but I know that trying to write a spec episode of Galactica would be a pointless endeavor. I mean, how do you even try and tell a story that would fit in with the rest of the series when the series keeps changing?

Man, it’s gonna be a long seven months.

it's cool to have a show that isn't afraid to do something truly unexpected though ain't it? just so long as they don't muck around too much with veronica mars. . .then we'd have us some trouble.

it's amazing that, after all these years of watching TV, I didn't know there was a void like this until Galactica filled it. Which now just begs the question, why is almost every other TV show so lame?

Good question, Marc. What is it that BSG does in the process that sets it apart from the rest of the pack?

I dunno. Maybe their willingness to cast off everything that came before, to gamble. "Who dares wins," right?
