Java News from Friday, February 4, 2005

If you're not watching the new Battlestar Galactica because the original series was so cheesy, you don't know what you're missing. It's like refusing to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer because the movie was so silly. The new Battlestar Galactica is shockingly good. It's as close to the top of the TV sci fi heap as the original series was to the bottom. We'll have to wait and see how the series progresses, but if it keeps up the current high standards, it may well be the best TV science fiction series ever. Do yourself a favor and check it out tonight at 10:00 P.M. EST on the SciFi Channel. (Yes, it's a slow news day.)
