Battlestar Galactica Moving to Sundays

This falls into the category of “News that GMMR is simply ecstatic about!”. Ever since Grey’s Anatomy moved to Thursdays and Desperate Housewives started to blow, I have really, really missed my Sunday night television. At the end of a long weekend, when I’m fighting off the last remnants of my hangover from Saturday night, I like to unwind with some good quality TV. But this season Sunday has been a big let down. But oh how THAT is about to change.

In a move that thrills me to no end, Battlestar Galactica is moving to Sunday nights at 10pm starting on January 21st. Yay! Sunday night TV is back!!

I was a latecomer to BSG. This is actually my very first season watching the show. I had heard how amazing the show was but I was hesitant to not only take on another show (I mean eyes may just fall out of my head at this point), but I was also weary of a Sci Fi. I’ve never been a Sci Fi chick in my life. At the urging of Ducky, I gave in and gave a looksy to Battlestar Galactica: The Story So Far (which is available for FREE on iTunes) and I was immediately hooked. The characters, story and plot are simply the deepest and most complex in all of television. You don’t watch BSG – you experience it.

If you are looking for good Sunday night TV this January, then use the time between then and now to invest in Battlestar Galactica. If you don’t have the time to watch the first three seasons on DVD then just start with “The Story so Far” and then check out the nine episodes that have aired thus far this season (all of which are available via iTunes). It’s worth it. And I promise to hold your hand as you get caught up, just as Ducky did mine. There will be questions, but I think you will catch on easy enough and before you know it, find yourself totally engrossed in the world of Cylons, Humans and well, Lee Adama. (Oh, and as an added bonus, you will FINALLY understand all those BSG references on The Office and Gilmore Girls).
