battlestar galactica: daybreak

Battlestar Galactica is finally over. I’m okay with it. Right now I have very mixed feelings about how it ended, and I want to get my thoughts out before I dive into the online discussions. First, let me review my predictions. If you are afraid…

battlestar galactica: revised predictions

If you haven’t seen “Daybreak, Part 1,” this past week’s episode, you probably should watch it first, though frankly there was really nothing to spoil in it. So to review my previous predictions: 1. I’m not longer sure what to think about my girlfriend’s idea…

battlestar galactica: predictions

Here’s what I think we’re going to see in the Battlestar Galactica finale. If you haven’t seen tonight’s episode (“Islanded in a Stream of Stars”), you should watch it first. To give you a little spoiler space, I’ll start with some of the less specific…

doctor who: approaching the finale

I love the internet and the people who post things on it. Thanks to these diligent souls I’m now ahead of the Sci-Fi Channel and all the way up through episode 11 of seas 4 of Dr. Who (“Turn Left”). I’m a fan of the…

doctor who: human nature

Utterly. Brilliant. Made up 200% for that Dalek trash. This is easily the best episode they’ve done to date and probably one of the best in the entire series, going back to 1963. Why they waited till the third season to mine this vein is…

doctor who: evolution of the daleks

Funny how all it takes is one dog of a two-parter like this to puncture my swelling enthusiasm for this show. You’d think they could knock those out of the park, since they have the equivalent of four of the old-school episodes to develop the…

the new who review

I’ll probably end up posting more commentary on encyclops.com soon, but okay, okay, I finally have warmed to the new Dr. Who. I still think the plotting has a tendency toward great setups with incredibly stupid endings, but I’ve really begun to enjoy it. I’ve…
