Battlestar Galactica Marathon  
Those of you who either read my Tweets or follow me in Facebook know by now that I am marathoning the 2004 version of Battlestar Galactica. I finished the introduction to the series, which was the 3-hour minseries special, and today, I just finished Season 1. If you have not watched this series, I totally recommend it. It is an amazing ride. It's a very high-brow science fiction story, with no aliens for enemies—just humans (and some human-like robots) and how they solve their problems and their prejudices.

For the LOST fans, there's an actor who is a Desmond look-alike. His name is James Callis. James play
s Dr. Gaius Baltar, a traitor and a liberator. Interesting role. Those of you who watched FlashForward, he played Gabriel McDow, the autistic character who flashed forward numerous times and always saw Olivia Benford and Lloyd Simcoe together in his flashes.

I'm so glad you are enjoying it- I have a big love for the Cylon Centurions..... yes they are cold blooded killers but I still love them.

Callis was also in Bridget Jones Diaries

There are some awesome music videos- particularly Forever of the Stars but its spoilery for s4 so I wont link it, but you should watch it when you finish the series :)

Why am I not surprised that you would like the Cylons? They are bad guys, like Ben. LOL

I never saw Bridget Jones Diaries. I heard that it was good.

Through out the entire series I could never decide if I liked or disliked Baltar. James Callis was just so brilliant I could never make up my mind.

He's also in the first episode a Brit mystery with Trevor Eve called Heat of the Sun. He's really good in it.

Ah, your icon! Made of Awesome!

I agree, James Callis is a great actor.

It was these two that got me to watch BSG but I ended up loving so much more about it. I will readily admit though to being a die-hard A/R shipper. I'm such a sap. LOL
