Battlestar Galactica may be over, but the fans will never stop touting its praises. I gave it a chance this previous weekend. What I found is that while all of season 1, 2, 2.5, 4 and 4.5 were available to stream on Netflix Instant Watch, the first two “episodes” (a mini movie) of season 1 weren’t there. So, I went to episode 3 and tried to muddle my way through.

battlestar galacticaSci-fi isn’t my genre of choice, despite the fact that I like several very good sci-fi shows (Doctor Who, Heroes season 1, Firefly.) While I respect this show and its fans, I realized that this series just doesn’t seem to be right for me. I may give it a shot at a future date. If you like sci-fi, you should absolutely check it out. And if you’re a fan in need of something to do over Christmas break, there’s nothing as good as a massive marathon of a beloved TV show.
