Just a reminder- Battlestar Galactica is back tonight!!! after a week off. and a wicked sweet cliffhanger with Roslin, Baltar and the Hybrid going for a little joy ride. The show has been so intensely awesome this year, I’m going to hate waiting til 09 for the rest…
Speaking of waiting, last summer I had promised a friend that if she started BSG, I would start Lost. In fact, I’ve put up this pact to several people and all have failed me. I have avoided lost since I saw the FIRST advertisement for it. Because it was airing on Wednesday night (I am never home on a Wednesday), before I had Tivo and it looked crazy awesome. My life and VHS tapes were pretty full that year, so I abstained. The next year I didn’t have cable or the ABC channel. Then it started getting all this hype and most shows don’t deserve that kinda respect. I have seen one episode plus a few pieces and I am confident that it is high quality.
But now I’ve come to an impasse. This summer I am leaving my fortress of solitude and moving back in with my favorite former roomie Yost and another dear friend- both of whom watch Lost. And I am the one with the Tivo…and the Tivo comes with the caveat that my decor conscious roomies will let me keep what they think is an ugly but is actually my awesome recliner. All that to say, my hand is finally forced to catch up with Lost because I will have to start Tivoing it for others.
Last night, I saw pieces of the finale while working in another room…and I heard Alias esqe music. So now I am finally excited to start this series.
But I will get Yost hooked on Battlestar Galactica because that is what good roommates do.
