How unexciting.

Yep. The only thing on that list I'm looking forward to is the return of Eureka.

Has anyone noticed a new season of Dr. Who has started?

Yep, I did. It looks a little darker this time -- I like it.

SG-U is done. Too bad, in a way. It wasn't an especially good show, but the second season was a lot better than the first. It just took too long getting there.

Staying home on a Saturday night just got better, thanks to BBC America. A new episode of Doctor Who last night plus the 2-hour opening of BSG. They're going to replay the whole series, and that opening scene sucked me in all over again.

Me too. It's a perfect opening. That lone envoy from the colonies, on the remote space station built solely for the purpose of maintaining diplomatic relations with the Cylons, going through the motions of waiting for a Cylon representative who's never once shown up in forty years -- and then she comes. That one scene tells us this show is going to be high-style, dark, sexual, and filled with the unexpected. Perfect.

Except...there's no reason for it. Why would the Cylons waste their resources sending Six and her metal bodyguards there? The station is not strategically located. There's nothing going on there, nothing the Cylons would want. If anything, the Cylons are tipping their hand -- if anyone were paying attention. When Adama is informed the envoy hasn't returned, he dismisses the matter as insignificant; more important things are on his mind (the decommissioning of Galactica). That scene is there not because it's integral to the story but because it's a carrot dangling from a stick. It's exactly how I got sucked in the first time.

Interesting. Both Torchwood and Doctor Who have female companions/associates who are dragging husbands along with them but still maintain a close but ambiguous relationship with their shows' alpha males. Last season, the Doctor's Amy thought she was pregnant. This new season, Jack's Gwen has an infant to care for. Probably more parallels are coming up. Same writer/producer for both shows, Russell T. Davies.
