The editors at Rolling Stone have declared Battlestar Galactica to be the best show on TV. They are right.
If you think this SciFi channel series is your typical, shallow sci-fi tripe: a lot of explosions mixed with confusing pseudo-science babble, you are wrong. It is an incredibly well-scripted and well-acted drama. Now in its third season, it is exploring legitimate questions about survival, terrorism, torture, democratic government, and – yes – even faith in the face of annihilation, in a way that no other TV show can or will.
Forget about the largely anemic fall lineups on the mainstream networks. This one deserves space on your DVR.
