The Epic Journey: Battlestar Galactica Season 4 Promo

The Sci-Fi Channel has released a promotional trailer for the next season of that great cerebral space opera, Battlestar Galactica. The show is one of my favourites and in my opinion, offers some of the most under appreciated content on television. Tracking the surviving colonists of a post-apocalyptic war between humanity and a race of machines, the series is able to transcend the standard genre tropes to deliver something with real drama and nuance. There are the grand ineluctable CGI battles and swirling dogfights, but the show never relies on these – preferring dark, claustrophobic corridors and space that is just as much dense with fear and doubt as it is with robotic enemies.

Season Four, the final season for the series, begins on January 16th.

  1. I agree that BSG is some of the best, most philosophical and underrated material on TV. I have just finished watching the DVD of season 4 part one. It is brilliant.

  2. Hi Jason,

    Just thought I’d say hi since I’m a friend of Bnonn’s and like you I’m from a Brethren background, am very much into BSG, and seem to share some interests – gaming in the past, philosophy a little. Besides maybe the Mighty Boosh. Hah.

    You know the Brethren were never calvinists so it’s interesting to see your views on that as I lean that way more myself these days. My parents would have a fit!
