Geek post of the week: SCI FI FRIDAY IS BACK!

...with the return of my favorite show, Battlestar Galactica!


Last night's innaugeral 4th season episode did not disappoint! It was especially riveting because, as Americablog's John Aravosis noted, the obvious connection between events on the show to real events in Iraq. We are forced to look at all sides of the issue of "occupation" - the "hero" Cylons (Sharon 8 and Number Six) convinced the rest of their species that this was a better solution to "live in harmony" with the humans rather than exterminating them. Of course, it has all turned into an occupation that has gotten out of their control when other agendas took over. Our favorite human characters are choosing survival either through working for the Cylons or as "insurgents," organizing suicide bombings. I think the story line that is the most facinating involves Starbuck, who has been kidnapped by a Cylon and is living with him in a comfortable cell as he uses insidious psychological methods to bind her to him.

I wonder what the reaction will be from more conservative quarters?
