Frackin' Hell

Battlestar’s back! Finally, we’ve got a nice run of the nine remaining episodes for the rest of the season after another long wait and cliffhanger. After the Eye of Jupiter, Dianna’s been boxed, everyone gets off of the algae planet in one piece, the star went nova, Six is on board Galactica (again), Baltar’s back as well and in the brig and whee! Some of the best ground combat that the show’s had was in there as well, not to mention some of those visuals.

The Dresden Files premired as well, and it was okay. Not as good as I’d hoped it would be, but it’s got the makings of another fine show. As far as the book went, there’s a lot of similarities, a bunch of things that are a real departure, and some things that were improved upon. Dresden himself looks the part, and he’s got a better jacket than the one in the book – he seems a little more realistic. Some of the sarcasm was there, and the general Chicago environment of the underworld stuff was present. However, Bob’s kinda weird, Murphy’s nowhere near her character from the books (almost angry and sarcastic in the books, while she’s pretty mellow here), and Dresden seems to be pretty well off, not at the complete desperate bottom-of-the-barrel that he’s in in the books. Ah well, there’s time for improvement.

I’m not going to continue with the weekly TV-This-Week thing, just because I don’t have time. If I like a show, I’ll probably gush about it. If I don’t, I’ll bitch. Savvy?
