Battlestar Galactica on iTunes

When Apple announced that they were going to be selling TV shows on the iTunes Music Store, I immediately thought: "Wow, I really wish they would put the new Battlestar Galactica on there..." Problem Solved.

Unfortunately, the episodes appear to have a 4:3 aspect ratio rather than the original 16:9. :(

Battlestar Galatica

Many years ago, there was a show on TV called Battlestar Galactica. It was one of the earlier slightly more realistic sci-fi shows on TV, but is quite primitive by today's standards. It was about a branch of the human race in a far off region of the galaxy fighting for their lives against a mechanized enemy called the Cylons. In all honesty, I was never really a fan.


However someone must have been inspired, because last year a complete remake of the series started to air on the Sci-Fi channel. It is hands down the best science fiction I have ever seen on television. The setting and plot are brilliant, the ship designs and special effects are stunning, and the acting is superb. Even if you are not much of a fan of science-fiction, you must watch this series. It has now become my favorite show on television, and is the only redeeming factor of the channel since those bastards canceled Farscape.

SPOILER WARNING: If you haven't been keeping up with the current season of Battlestar Galactica, you may want to skip this post.

I can't say that I didn't expect it, but it still sucks: What a lemon of a series finale last night's episode was.

I've never seen such a dramatic collapse of the quality of storytelling in a series. As you may recall, I loved this show... But my, how far it has fallen.
