Battlestar Galactica

Saw the first two episodes, 33 and Water, tonight. Was planning on taping them Friday, but other stuff got in the way.

Nice. Still fairly dark, but the mood seemed more tense than "Oh my God, they're going to kill us this minute."

Now I want to go back and watch the miniseries again [and I saw it just last week]. Is it my imagination, or are the Cylons more interested in mindfucking the humans than exterminating them? Constant pressure - in 33, the crew was up for 5 days straight; in Water, they were almost out of water due to sabotage. Plus the mind games [literally] with Baltar and with the pilot stranded on Caprica. Fewer but at least one of the "save a few at the risk of losing everyone" decisions.

And Will on Vodkapundit likes it.
