The Bosnian and I finally caught up on his Tivo'd episodes of Battlestar, and wow -- I figured they'd go the dystopian route, but this was dark dark dark. More after the cut for those who still haven't watched it Read more... )

Quite appropriate, since I caught up with the latest two episodes of this season yesterday night. Seriously dark episodes. It's always been a dark series, but all this eliding of sex, love, and violence is a bit much even for my Bret Easton Ellis-, Solzhenitsyn-appreciating tastes.

And while I'm talking sci fi shows, I've now watched the first season of Babylon 5 and am TOTALLY hooked. However, as much love as Ivanova seems to get on my friends page, I hate the odd caricature statements she makes about her Russianness. Her character as a whole is great--strong and funny--a rare find for women portrayed on TV. But seriously, if I hear her say another line that ends with "...I'm Russian" or begins with "We Russians..." with stereotypical matrionichka doll blather in between, well I think I'm gonna hurl. Please tell me that this kind of writing improves in later seasons.
