The Spark of the Season

So tarotchan and I went out to get a Holiday Tree last night. Holy crap, they're so much more expensive in CA than they were in MA. Yoikes.

But it's a good tree. Tall, well shaped. And it's well shaped on all sides, which is nice since it's sitting in the middle of the living room (we have no wall space to put it up against thanks to a plethora of furniture).

We only put the lights on it last night, but... wow...

When we plugged the first strand in to test it, and all those little bulbs lit up, there was this PING of holiday spirit that shot around the room.

It has begun.

I like Boomer's boobs...

Yes folks, from the anti-hype, I thought it would suck. But now, I'm thinking that the anti-hype may have been propagated by the producers just to get people to watch.

What do I speak of? The SciFi re-imagining of Battlestar Galactica.

It's good.

DAMN good.

It's NOT the original show. There is a flavor, nay, a just a touch of the old thrown in, but it's an entity unto itself. Not a remake, but a re-imagining.

If you cling too much to the old show, and don't watch it with an open mind that is willing to accept change, you'll probably post whiny replies to this complaining about every little sordid detail that was changed (yes, Boomer and Starbuck have boobs-- so does the President, folks-- GIRL POWER!).

I loved the original show. Hell, my father WORKED on the original show, so if anyone has a right to complain, it's me. :D And I ain't complaining.

Frack it! Shut up and watch.
