A very cool week

OK, so as the title of this little entry suggests, this promises to be a great week ahead. Why? Because at least two very good things are about to happen. First, this friday evening is the season premier of the new Battlestar Galactica season. I know, I know, those who have never seen the show are going to roll their eyes and write me off as some sort of pocket-protector wearing uber-nerd. But trust me, this show is the best thing on television right now. In fact, I believe it is one of the best television series ever, if not the best series ever. Check it out, if you haven't. You won't regret it.

The second very cool thing to happen soon is that Sting's new album is scheduled to be released this coming Tuesday. It's been too long, and I'm very much looking forward to hearing his new stuff. Which reminds me, I'm also hoping for a new Peter Gabriel album, though I have absolutely no idea when that might occur.

How do you feel about the change in direction that Battlestar Galactica has taken? I'm intrigued. I love the fact that they skipped ahead a year and that they've completely upended the plot.

One of the things I love about the show is its willingness to take risks, to go in whatever direction keeps the story interesting. I love how the current plot allows them to explore (for example) Tigh's "on the edge of madness" desire to get back at the cylons (and disdain for anyone who is working for them) -- and I'm intrigued to see how that plays out, since his wife is trying to protect him by sleeping with one of the cylons.
