TV is bad – except Battlestar Galactica

I’ve already written here that television is bad for you. It’s bad for me, and I prefer surfing the web than sitting idle in front of the television set.

Yet as I’ve mentioned in the past, we do download movies and television series from the web. One time, while grabbing something to eat, I was exposed to Battlestar Galactica that my roommate was watching. Since then, I’ve been following the series.

It combines scifi, politics, intrigue, personal relations, religion and more. I don’t want to spoil the story, that can be found here.

The production is very good, and I found myself highly fascinated by the show. The last episode of the 3rd season was brilliant. I can’t wait for the next season.

As far as I know, it isn’t shown on any channel here in Israel, and I don’t watch television anyway. We see it using a commercial-free torrent version of it.

If you lack time and are interested in one good thing that television has to offer, I recommend Battlestar Galactica.
