Frak Yeah!

I never thought I'd do something this silly here, but you're going to have to indulge my nerdgasm over this week's episode of Battlestar Galactica. Not only was it the single best episode of the best show on television, it contained the absolute goddamned most bad-ass action sequence I've ever seen on the small screen.

The scene probably requires a little bit of set-up, but I'm not going to bother -- other than to say that it involves a surprising and drastic measure taken during an astonishing rescue mission.

This one is basically for my own benefit and the benefit of all the fans of this spectacular show.

Watch and be amazed.

Wow! When did SciFi discover realism?
Couldn't help wishing real world pilots of hi-tech military hardware were as good at picking out 'friendlies' as the guys in this clip though....

Chez, I have to agree with you here. The "Galactica in freefall" scene was totally badass! BG's probably my fave fictional TV show out there right now. The parallels they draw to current events (or what least what could be current events) is pretty amazing.

BTW, my likely fave show hands down as of late has to be by your (former?) co-worker Keith Olberrmann. The man is truly "an angry prophet denouncing the hypocrisy of our times."

Finally, when are you bringing Midweek Metal back? If Justin can do it with sexy, this should be of little effort...

Slainte mhath,
Fred

All of the best nerds I know are salivating over Battlestar Galactica. It's torture because now I have to wait for the DVD set. I guess I'll just go catch up on LOST instead. The high-rent nerds have been pushing that junk, too. And Fireflies...gotta check that out...
