I'm Conflicted...


Many of you out there will be waking up to the knowledge that the final season of Battlestar Galactica started on US TV last night.

I trust the first episode was everything you hoped for and expected.

However, like the incoming US Administration, Galactica doesn't begin here until next Tuesday, which leaves me in a dilemma - do I stream it off the web in advance, or hold out until Tuesday and watch it on my new, purpose-bought 40" LCD TV?

I have in the past been described as a 'hot-headed idiot' (Hal), 'impetuous fool' (Jonn), 'lacking in self-control' (Wally), and so on, not that I can imagine why*, but I'm determined to do this properly - so I'll be avoiding reviews and spoilers for the next three days and simply waiting.

Hopefully...

*unless they mean that time when that planet got eaten...

I think you should hold out and watch it on those 40 inches of televisual glory. I often stream US shows and watch them in a corner of my monitor but it's not as enjoyable as immersing myself in a full-size quality version. Your new screen will reward you for your patience.
I think you're right, PJ - happily, Sky 2 is showing the first half of season 4 in the runup to Tuesday, so I have something to watch in the meantime.

Only 2 days, nine and a half hours to go.

I can hold out that long.

Well if it was purpose bought...

Actually I have noticed a lot of people being really respectful of spoiler information in posts and comments. I respect that and hope no one spoils it for you until you get the chance to see it on the big TV.

BTW - awesome episode (watched on my tiny - "compared to the TV at least" monitor)
