Battlestar Galactica Miniseries (possible spoilers for the few who haven't seen it)

Started watching the Battlestar Galactica revival last night. As I'm sure you all know, it's pretty darn good. A bit dour for a space opera, but that's fine by me. I like a story that earns its few happy moments by sludging through a whole mess of tragedy.

I enjoyed the nods to the original series, such as having to use antiquated Vipers that looked more like the ones from 1978 and recycling the old character names as pilot call signs, although I'm casting a skeptical eye at reviving the character of Boxey (will he be getting a dagget?). Of course I love the new Baltar's storyline, a vast improvement over his predecessor's far less complex betrayal of the human race. I can't wait to see where they go with him.

The Cylons themselves are surprisingly interesting so far. I'm curious why a cybernetic race would pull such a seemingly needless, purely symbolic, yet awesomely dramatic stunt as showing up at the the annual Armistice event just to make out with the armistice officer and then blow the joint up. Hopefully, that event will make more sense as the series progresses. And I very much love that Callum Keith Rennie plays one of the Cylons since I've been really enjoying him as Lew Ashby on Californication this season (watching the season finale tonight).
