BattleStar Galactica

Just started watching the second season of BattleStar Galactica. This is TV of a quality I have not seen since the last Whedon show was on air, and I would say it's as good as the very best of Joss' work.

Have been watching each episode twice, the second time with producer/writer Ron Moore's podcast commentary, which is brilliant. I think there is a distinct similarity between Moore's approach to writing and Joss' approach, which is very character centric. Going beyond the characters, BSG is just brilliant on every other level too. I love the (very firefly and Space: Above and Beyond style) camera work, the beautiful, beautiful music, excellent plotting and pacing and fantastic performances. Not to mention that Boomer, Starbuck and #6 are so very, very hot!.

With Carnivale gone, and Scrubs and Veronica Mars on hiatus, seems BSG is the only show worth watching..
