I noticed Jessica Fosler and Raymond Chen mention the new season of Battlestar Galactica which just started. I haven't watched the season premier (got it on tivo) but I like the show a lot even though some episodes of the second season were a bit tedious. Not entirely sure I'm liking having Starbuck as a woman since I used to pretend I was Starbuck from the original series (when I was a kid, not last week).
So why's it good? The show has a lot of mysteries, suspense, drama and action. 'nuff said.
