Finished Watching: BattleStar Gallactica (new version)

Finished watching the last season of BattleStar Gallactica on Netflix last night. Overall the show was really well done. I remember how hooked I was during the first two seasons, how it was must watch television.

But this fourth and final season, it seemed like they were trying to do too much, like they had a ton of story ideas and instead of concentrating on the best ones, they decided to throw them all in there. Heck, the mutiny could have been a season (or a summer web series, like New Caprica) all on its own. Instead, barely two episodes.

Movie Review: Knights of Bloodsteel

I know it’s true that there is no such thing as a truly original story. And I know the classic tropes are classics for a reason; still, it would be nice if people could try and inject a little originality into their characters.

Knights of Bloodsteel was a 2 part Syfy event, lasting somewhere between 3-4 hours long. The story itself wasn’t bad, but every single character was a classic trope, and a badly written one at that. (Nor was the acting great.) But really, did the loner swordsman who was “not from these lands” really need a Scottish accent?
