Default February 20: Five-Minute BSG relaunch

First update of 2009, and it's a new subsite, baby. Or rather, it's the long-awaited relaunch of what has until now been a subsite-in-name-only: Five-Minute Battlestar Galactica. Read the article if you wish, and then feast upon my first fiver of a regular BSG episode: Five-Minute "33".

I'm aiming for at least one fiver from each season in this launch event, and I've already written the next one. Stay tuned.

That is the standard hail, isn't it?

"For the last few years, Battlestar Galactica has been the nearly undisputed heavyweight champion of TV sci-fi."

I'm glad you said "nearly", 'cause I firmly believe Stargate owns that title.

Heh, not bad, not bad at all. You've still got it, Zeke.




...Well, probably more than one "it", but you choose whichever you feel is most complimentary and least requires the use of antibiotics.
