As you almost certainly know, the final season of Battlestar Galactica starts tonight on the SciFi channel. Hanson and I just finished watching the previous season last night in preparation for this momentous final season. My jummpin jammerz are laid out, the munchies are ready, and the DVR is set to record it on the HD channel.
I am amazed at how well the new BSG turned out. I was less than impressed to see Edward James Olmos cast as William Adama, but now I can't imagine anyone else in that role. He is one hard hitting mother-frakker who is beyond reproach and is not above a good old fashioned fist fight if that's whats called for! Now, as a management style, it leaves a bit to be desired; BUT, as the military leader of the last hope for humanity?
The original Adama as played by Lorne Greene was a no nonsense, uh, like a, uhm, sort of, whew. What was he? Sure, he made decisions, but he would SMILE while on the bridge!!! He was like your Grandfather, you did what he told you to do, but only because the crazy old guy deserved respect because of his age. But the new Adama, you do what he says because THAT is the chain of frakking command people! And without it, we are no better than the Cylons! Now get your butt into that tutu and dance like... Oh, wait... Where was I...
So I am really anticipating tonight's kickoff of the final season of Battlestar Galactica. But the fact that its the final season is bittersweet. On the sweet side, there will be closure to the story. Who is the final Cylon? What happened to Earth? Is there an Earth 2? (I loved that show) And of course the bitter side, its the final season. :( BUT, not to worry, there will be a NEW series that takes place 50 years earlier that explains the back story! YAY!
