If my ramblings about Battlestar Galactica, almost unanimous positive reviews and the awards it received haven't convinced you of the awasomeness of Battlestar Galactice, this Youtube clip must do the job. If this doesn't do the job, I suggest you try watching Young and Restless.
Despite the action packed into 3 minutes from 4 seasons, I'd like to remind you that BSG is not a science fiction series. It is rather a political, personal, religious, legal, family drama set to a science fiction setting. Try it, you won't regret!
