I'd be interested to see his take on the show.

He doesn't seem to like many space science fiction shows, or even start watching them. He saw Serenity, but never mentioned watching Firefly for instance.

He did for Firefly, it's there in the archives.

He's mentioned watching Firefly several times in past columns. He speaks very highly of it.

IIRC, he only watched Firefly after somebody sent him the DVDs. Same with Smallville, I believe.

He mentions it here, but I don't remember seeing a review.

Yeah, OSC requires me to send him spaceship shows and then bug him a year later before he'll watch them [Smile] I only got him the Galactica premiere six and a half months ago, so you'll need to wait another five and a half, assuming I spent Christmas at his house.

I've been wondering myself what OSC will think of the show, and waiting for it to show up in his columns.

Everyone here seems to like BSG, so I rented the pilot. But it was so dark and heavy, I really didn't care for it and didn't finish it--I think I watched a little over an hour of it. Is the pilot fairly representative of mood of the series?

I'd say yes and no. The series is more or less a sci-fi-personification of a small ray of sunshine peeking through the heart of a giant thunderstorm.

Definately the whole series is very gritty and harsh, but it's primarily the stories of people triumphing over adversity. The miniseries (especially the beginning) is necessarily more doom-and-gloom because it's setting up the plot for the rest.

Oh, yeah -- miniseries, not pilot. Thanks for the comments, that helps.

With movies and TV that are really objectively good -- and BSG fits squarely in this category -- I don't really have much interest in reading reviews. Either the reviewer says the obvious, which isn't that interesting, or else they don't "get" the show, which tends to make me mad.
