Love & Hate

Things that Big Dumb Object has loved and hated this week:

Loved
  • The amount of press that the announcement of a new Doctor can generate. Who'd have thought that a Science Fiction television show could generate so much interest?
  • Spook Country by William Gibson. Reading it. Loving it.
  • The promise of new Science Fiction in a new year.


Hated 
  • The amount of press that the announcement of a new Doctor can generate. It gets a bit tiresome after a while.
  • Holidays ending.

Why no love for Battlestar Galactica?

"But there was clearly no plan, and no arc, and it had said everything to be said."

Your assessment is interesting. You still follow "Star Wars" and "Dr. Who." I suppose you think they have something new to say and BSG doesn't.

I think one of BSG's strengths is its character development, a quality I find lacking in most sci-fi and under appreciated by most sci-fi audiences.

Also, your assessment seems ironic after the first half of season 4 in which one plot line after another is getting resolved.

Hey, you're not required to like BSG. I just wanted to understand why.
