Battlestar Gallactica

Recommended Posts

Not having the ability to watch TV at home (no reception, unwilling to pay for cable) I finally got to see the ending of Battlestar Gallactica on DVD.

Usually I don't enjoy entertainment based in collectivist societies but I really couldn't help loving the reboot of this show.

Perhaps in denial I have been justifying to myself that if every remaining human being were forced to live in a couple ships that no one could claim to own there really couldn't be the kind of individualism that I prefer in my entertainment.

Especially enjoyable for me was the character of Adama.

Anyone else like this show? Or hate it based on its collectivism & occasional apparent mysticism?

The show is one giant "lifeboat scenario".

Some degree of collectivism would be expected under the circumstances, even in an objectivist society.
