Turning The Battleship Around
I haven't been trumpeting Battlestar Galactica recently, so let me rectify the situation: the best drama on television got even better last Friday, with "Downloaded", their mesmerizing first-ever look inside cylon culture -- a deeply religious society that treats their war against humans as a divine, religious crusade (or jihad, depending upon your preferred chilling allegory). The performances are as good as any on HBO, and the mind-bending scripts equal or better those of its only scripted rival (Lost). Join the joyride by listening to audio commentary on the episode, and download the entire season from iTunes to catch up before the last two episodes of the season (March 3 and 10). Even if you hate science fiction, trust us: this is a show any quality drama fan can't afford to miss.
