I'm a big SciFi fan. it's true that i am a secret geek. i always have been. i read engadget daily. i stay current on mac blogs. i love sci fi books and the like. all that. (although i did abandon coding and programming early in my teens as i did get a little boy crazy) that being said, i was never a fan of Battle Star Galactica, until my not as geeky boyfriend made me fall in love...not with him, but with the show.
So, when we started dating it was coming close to the series finale. I watched a few episodes with him and recognized that i would enjoy the show if i knew what the hell was going on. Thank the gods for Netflix.
Now everyweek i get new installments of what is proving to be a really great show. Clearly i am behind all other Battlestar fans, so i don't know who all the cylons are for example, and i'd rather not have those things ruined.
Jp now says i'm a geek even though it was a show he was into before me.
I really can't watch and send them back fast enough, so i can't imagine waiting for a week until the next episode!
Seriously though, if you like SciFi and you are , oh, unemployed or independently wealthy, watch a season or two and get hooked.
