Battlestar Galactica

I watched the Battlestar Galactica mini-series on DVD last night after I got back to the hotel. I really liked this version. The personal conflicts dovetailed nicely with the overall story, although they were pretty cliché. But they were still well done. I loved how the makers weaved the theme of sin and retribution throughout the plot, both the personal interactions as well as the overall human/Cylon circumstances. Being the first in an eventual series, it would have been nice had the explained why the Cylons revolted and why they exhibited such savagery in this war. Rymer also did a nice thing with Baltar's guilt and attempts to save his own skin. How he accuses someone else of crimes to cover his own. I thought they might be leading up to the result that happened, but I wasn't quite sure.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
