Sean gets cranky and rips into the new Battlestar Galactica

Sean has had enough of the new Battlestar and artfully deconstructs it on his Better Tomorrow blog.

Pop on over and check it out it. I sure as heck never knew there was so much going on between the lines…

When I was a kid, I always wanted the Cylons to win. Hell, I even wanted to BE a Cylon, but the technology was just not there. Damn. I also wanted to be Buck Rogers so I could slowly dismantle Twiki one screw at a time.

  • Very interesting commentary. I stopped watching the rebooted BSG when they elected Baltar as the President.

    I must agree with Sean, too, that American TV has a problem with being unable to end. Or in many instances, no idea of where they’re going.

    Besides nuBSG, I stopped watching LOST when it turned to torture (can’t exactly watch that with the kids) and I realized the producers were just making it up as they went along.

    It’s nothing new with American TV. The same thing happened with the old DARK SHADOWS.

    Heck, you just have to look at the endings of various shows (eg SEINFELD, ENTERPRISE, VOYAGER, etc.) to see how BADLY the producers and powers-that-be really understand their own creations/series.

    I wonder if, in this day of the remake/reboot ad nauseum, whether or not American television and movie producers can ever learn.

    I agree, but there are a few exceptions. Star Trek: The Next Generation series wrapped around itself and ended pretty well, IMHO. Breaking Bad, MASH, Monk, and Mystery Science Theater 3000 also worked at wrapping up loose ends and giving closure. I didn’t want them to end, but they went out gracefully.

    Yes – thank goodness some shows do manage to end with dignity, and entertainment value! But for some shows, just the nature of the premise demands a limited series. Lost was definitely one of those, and the other one I have in mind is The X Files. Once they started the Alien Invasion uber-storyline, some sort of resolution became necessary. It was like a train coming down the track – but one that never reached the station.

    I always liked the Cylon voices the best. Hmmm… I wonder how much a voice digitizer is on Flea-Bay…

    I’m sure it wouldn’t be that expensive. And it will go great with your Bluetooth headset and Google glasses! (Resistance is futile….)

    Randall Landers, the reason I don’t watch TV. I love BBC’s Sherlock or True Detective for exactly the reason that they don’t go on forever and have a planned ending. All other TV falls into the crapper fairly quickly.
