By then I’ll have my own show

There will be no spoilers here whatsoever! I just want to exploit my membership in a geek blog to gripe for a second about Battlestar Galactica, which reached the end of its third season last night.

And what an end it was! Oh my God.

Then, once the stunning season finale was over, a somber message appeared on screen, with a regulation ominous-sounding narrator, who said, “Battlestar Galactica returns…in 2008.”


Well, look at it this way: it’s enough time for all you bums who aren’t up to date on “the best show on television” to get up to date. Those of you who are a full season behind have plenty of time to catch up. And, octopunk, this means you, assuming you haven’t indulged in your appalling practice of tuning in every so often and spoiling yourself just because “somebody in the other room was watching” or whatever your lame excuses always are.

2008. I can’t believe it. I don’t think the cliffhanger-suspense-retention-mechanism in my brain can withstand the pressure. Probably, it will just burn out and fail sometime this Autumn and I’ll be going, “Galactica? What? What’s that? I’ve never heard of it.”

Okay, I’m done bitching; we can go back to watching horror movies and not getting a prize.

UPDATE: Don’t read jpx’s comment unless you don’t mind season three spoilers. In fact, jpx, if you could replace your comment with a link, it might be for the best, don’t you think? (I’m worried about octo’s “virgin ears” here.)

UPDATE II: I went ahead and deleted the comment. Don’t get mad, jpx; it’s just that Galactica season three is so sublime that I wouldn’t even want my eyes grazing over that article and catching a stray phrase or two if I hadn’t seen the season.
