Making the world a better place, one show at a time.

I guess you would like to know a little bit about the person making all these proclamations upon good taste and horrid characters. I'm Andrea and when I was 15 I fell in love. An hour after meeting "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" I was forever altered in the way only love can, and I never questioned for one minute afterwards that television offered me an amazing chance to experience lives and moments that I could never imagine. So now, when I'm not getting distracted by my real life, I write about TV. I also read, am finishing a Master's degree in English Literature, travel, am attempting to learn vegan cooking, am the 5th of 6 children, and drive my roommate nuts by constantly cleaning our already clean apartment. Now that we're old friends, time for you to take my opinions as the be all and end all.

Random Info: Battlestar Galactica

I bring hope to those of you who have not as yet allowed Battlestar Galactica to make your world a more wondrous place.

One of the most daunting things about TV is the conception that you have to watch a series from its beginning to watch it at all. It is easy to tell yourself "I would not understand what is going on if I start watching mid-series." I agree that this is a legitimate concern, but the availablity of both episodes online and TV on DVD has changed the terms of the argument.

In the case of Battlestar Galactica you can avoid the problem altogether, because the Sci Fi Network is doing everyone a favor. Tomorrow night, Friday March 28th at 10pm/9pm (Central) the Sci Fi Network is airing an hour long Battlestar Galactica: Revealed. This is a program designed to give new viewers everything they need to know to start watching Season Four, which as you can see in the display to your right, begins next week.

Even though I have seen every episode of BSG (some of them so many times it is kind of sick), I will be watching, if only to see what the producers think is most important for viewers to know.

You have no more excuses for not watching one of the best shows on TV.

I think there are two new episodes on tonight, and for her, and you, I am willing to give it a try. As long as her teeth are not as messed up as Kitty's...
