A delightful New Yorker article on Battlestar Galactica, my new favorite show, which I praised in my blog literally WEEKs ago. It seems odd that girl reporter Nancy Franklin chooses to spend fully a third of the article talking about what Science Fiction is like as a genre (only to admit that the new Battlestar doesn't fit), but her descriptions of Starbuck and Doctor Baltar are absolutely dead-on, and perhaps her magazine legitimacy will convince those reluctant to watch a show about a giant spaceship and its problems with sexy robots. Also, NB, available on iPod video, for those of us who like to enjoy the series in a postage-stamp sized format.
