I heard it ended strong. I will get around to it one of these days. Monk was my favorite USA show.

I'm watching The Adventures of Sir Lancelot. It's very 1950s, but still enjoyable. Arthurian legend (particularly Lancelot) is fast becoming my thing.

For a second I thought that was Nathan Fillion. Now I'm sad.

I started watching History Channel's "The World Wars" last night. Really enjoyed them. I didn't catch all of them, so I'll have to try and catch the rest as they re-air them. I like how they make connections between the two wars and some of the pivotal figures who fought in both.

There is one mistake that really bugged me, though. During the World War I re-enactment scenes, they kept showing German soldiers use British Lee Enfield rifles. Guess the prop department couldn't get a hold of any Mauser rifles?

That, and sometimes the young Hitler guy's accent sounds more Irish than German.

Anyone watch the newer (2004-2009) Battlestar Galactica series? I'm in the middle of the second season, and am really enjoying it. Although I don't know what I think of Gaius, because he really gets on my nerves...

I watched and loved BSG! Though the second season was my least favorite (in fact, I really didn't like most of it). So if you're liking it now you'll probably enjoy it more as you go.

Hey Mara, I actually just finished watching the entire series a couple weeks ago (thank you Netflix). All four seasons are pretty good. And yeah, Gaius is a strange character.

I rather enjoyed Gaius' character over all. There were times when he got annoying but he was interesting. Dealing with the guilt he had and all.

Starbuck is boss.

What I liked the most in the whole BSG was how they used the song All Along the Watchtower.

That scene gave me goosebumps!

Eh, I didn't like their version of the song. You can't beat Jimmy Hendrix.

I watched the entire reimagined BSG. Thought it was an amazing series (although I was kinda disappointed that none of the fighter pilots were likable Wedge Antilles types).

Gaius I think qualifies as a bad guy you just want to hate (not one of the "bad guys you love to hate").

They had a few BSG pilots that they tried to make likable but it just didn't work. Helos was a dumb character.

The most interesting thing about Gaius was the religious stuff that came later. He really changed more as a character than anyone else.

I kinda liked Helos myself but I didn't count him as a pilot since he's technically the electronic countermeasure officer on the Raptors.

It took a while, but I liked Hotdog. I think being a non-focus character protected him some, otherwise he would have got the soap opera effect like Starbuck and Apollo.
