This season's episodes of BSG have reinforced that lesson.
Strong and strange characters have been a hallmark of this new series, and the performances have stood up to the writing.
Michael Hogan's Colonel Tigh has been amazing the last few weeks. He hadn't been one of my favorites, but when someone can argue the virtues of suicide bombings and have me agreeing, they're acting their heart out.
Okay, better late than never… so it is said.
Actually, I never liked this version of Colonel Tigh. There are a few times I might sympathize with him some, and even agree with some things he says, but I will probably never like him.
I did not agree with Colonel Tigh’s arguments for suicide bombing even though I understood them. I found it interesting that the writers chose to put the Colonists in a very similar position as Muslim extremists face here on Earth, and then have them make the same kind of revolting choices to fight for their cause. I wonder how many people, who watch the show, supported the Colonists actions but violently disagree with what the Muslim Extremists have done, and are still doing, in the name of their cause?
Anyway, I am not sure how much longer I will follow this show. It is just too dark for my tastes. I will hang in there for now though.
A reminder for those who watch Battlestar Galactica: If you did not know, the show moved to Sunday’s at 10 PM (9 PM central) and fresh episodes begin again this next Sunday, January 21, 2007. Personally, I think SciFi made a mistake moving this show. SciFi Friday is rather weak right now.
