Galactica one of year's Top 10 shows

Matt Roush had nothing but praise for BSG in his Friday "Ask Matt" column.

Question: What did you think of Battlestar Galactica's season finale last Friday? Though the subject matter was difficult and dark, I thought it was brilliantly done and proved to be both disturbing and powerful. The strong emotional reaction it elicited from me and many other fans is a testament to the power of well-crafted storytelling. — Beth

Matt Roush: The show is, pure and simple, a knockout. It was a completely gripping hour, unsettling in its depiction of inhumanity (toward the humanoid Cylons) and wonderfully intense as it built the conflict between Adama and the ice-cold admiral (always good to see Michelle Forbes). It's going to be a long wait for new episodes this winter. Right now, Galactica has dibs on a coveted place in my year-end Top 10 list.


  1. Take a peek at Ask Matt column today 10/03/2005
    It may inflame those that wished for a continuation BSG series in the style of the original.

  2. Yeah, I saw the column, but decided not to post about it. The whole old vs. new battle doesn't interest me. I like the new show better and Tahmoh's on the new show so I'm just going to report on the new BSG.
