It's a pretty exciting day to be a sci-fi fan. Tonight we get the kick-off of the second season of Battlestar Galactica
and the season premieres of the two Stargate
franchises. I'm willing to give SG1
a look simply because Ben Browder (John Crichton from Farscape
) will be starring this year, but I have to admit I'm the most excited about the second season of Battlestar Galactica
. The first season ended just a few months ago and yet I've been eagerly anticipating the premiere since the show went into repeats. Galactica
's first-season cliffhanger was a thing of beauty, ranking right up there with "Mr Worf, fire!" from TNG
, "I condemn you to live" from Farscape
and the third season cliffhanger to Babylon Five
And then, a certain books goes on sale tonight at midnight....a highly anticipated book. I have to admit, I'm a Harry Potter
fan and I'm looking forward to reading the newest book. Not sure I'll be out at midnight fighting the thunder hoardes of young readers who are (no doubt) frothing at the mouth to read it, but I am going to pick up a copy of it tomorrow and start reading.
Good day to be a sci-fi fan....good day.
