As the days count down to continuation of season 4 of Battlestar Galactica, I find myself more and more assaulted by series teasers and spoilers. For now the effects are manageable. I’ve been able to avoid watching or reading much despite attempts by my friend Jen Segrest and others to share every little thing they’ve come across about the show. As January approaches however, I fear that even I won’t be able to avoid learning far more than I wanted to know about who the final Cylon might be, what the deal is with that planet they found and which characters might not live to see journey’s end.
I’ve already decided that I won’t be watching the previews for upcoming episodes during the final home stretch, and if you want to enjoy the final 10 episodes to their fullest, I suggest you don’t either. A show like Battlestar Galactica only comes around once in a frakking blue moon and call me old fashion, but I’d rather not know what’s coming. I can already tell we’ll be in for some doozy discussions over at The Sci-Fi Cast this winter, which I’m looking forward to. Just don’t rush me, I’m trying to savor the moment!
