It’s late on Christmas Eve, but what better present to unwrap than 13 glorious minutes of Battlestar Galactica that summarizes the entire series in one fail swoop?
This type of snarky, quick-fix summary became big a few years ago as studios struggled with ways to get audiences to pick up serial dramas after the first season. Unlike sit-coms, it really does matter if you’ve seen the earlier seasons, and they really don’t want you to opt-out of the whole series.
Whatever the reason, hat’s off to the BSG team. I’ve seen every episode and I found this 13-minute video incredibly useful. It reminded me of so many sub-plots and facts that I had forgotten.
Battlestar Galactica resumes on January 16th. Be prepared and catch the frak up.
