I fondly look back earlier this year when I discovered Battlestar Galactica. Well, more like re-discovered. I remember getting interested in the show when it first hit local Cinemax in 2005, but never got to follow it enough to get a good grasp of the story.
After the four-hour mini-series/pilot, I immediately fell in love with it- it was sci-fi, but not campy, it had chicks, a compelling storyline, interesting characters, and enough action to keep you locked in.
And locked in I was, indeed. I was able to finish all 40 episodes- the first 2 seasons + the webisodes + the first few episodes of season 3- within a month of watching the pilot, thus bringing me up to speed and current with what’s showing in the US/UK. I wasn’t just locked in, I was incredibly hooked.
Season 3 wrapped up by the end of March (with a killer season-ender, I might add!), leaving a gaping hole in my chest where the Galactica should be.
So you could imagine my surprise when I found out- just today- that the prelude to BSG Season 4 already came out!
The prelude is called Battlestar Galactica: Razor. Why it’s called “Razor”, I have no idea just yet, but I intend to find out. It currently has seven (7) 2-minute Flashback episodes + two (2) full episodes thus far.
I’ve already seen the Flashback episodes and -well- it’s like my obsession for BSG all of a sudden came back to the fore.
Man, I can’t wait to watch the other two episodes…
