bsg.

I have not been reading ( SHOCK! GASP! GACK! EEP! )

because I have been watching an insane amount of Battlestar Galactica ( thanks to my friend James; the stage manager of the musical I am in ).

In essence, it is so brilliantly written, cleverly told and currently relevant, that it is like sinking into a good book.

I do not condone tv as a substitute for literature, but every once in awhile, it is nice to have some escapism.

So, so true. Great storytelling, and the contemporary parallels run from brilliant to anvillike, but at least they're there.

I can't wait till you get to season TWO! SO. MUCH. ANGST. It's fantastic.

We were not able to start watching it last fall so we recorded it. One week grew into two and before we knew it we found ourselves here in March without having viewed a single episode.

We have been catching up and actually, it has been fun to immediately go to the next episode without a week in between. Just never know where that show is headed!

I'm starting to worry about you. Almost a month without a new entry! I'm going into withdrawal!
