SciFi’s running a marathon of Ron Moore’s Galactica and I’m finally able to take the time to watch. It is, as has been widely reported, pretty darn good. I have noted with amusement some clearly deliberate nods to Bungie’s beloved Marathon – as a small flight of ships drops out of jumpspace into a swarm of Cylon ships, a voice shrieks, “They’re everywhere!”
It’s a definite bonus to be able to see a bunch of this highly serialized show at once, too. The first one and a half were fairly dense even for me, but once I sorted out who was who and what was what and so forth, I started to really enjoy it.
