Andrea Challenge: BSG Edition - Season Two / by Craig Kerbrat

Earlier this week I finished watching season two of Battlestar Galactica, so that means I've hit the second milestone in the first challenge set for me by my good friend Andrea.

If you read my first update after I finished season one, you'll know that I was feeling a bit let down by the show after hearing so much hype about it for so long. But after watching the second season, I'm starting to get it. Really, right from the start of the season, I knew the show was taking a turn in the right direction. Things were happening, questions were being answered, and this world was finally opening up.

I have to say, I'm completely hooked by the show now. And I'm a little bit worried because I know there are only two seasons left. I'm pretty much halfway through. And it's always so sad when a great show ends. I can only hope that this show has a good ending. But I'm getting ahead of myself.

I am very curious about the mythology of the show. I want to know more about the history of the colonies. And the future of mankind. I want to know what the Cylons are planning. And how Baltar and Six are linked. Why do they both have imaginary versions of the other in their heads? Who are the Gods? And the "one true God"? So many questions. 

I'm also curious what's going to happen with all of the characters. Especially, again, with the way the season ended. The people on Caprica are rescued, but Roslin loses the election to Baltar, and then it looks like half the fleet explodes in a nuclear explosion. Then we jump a year in the future and some people are living on New Caprica, Baltar is a terrible president, and Adama has a moustache! It's crazy town. And then the Cylons show up, the fleet runs away, the New Capricans are in trouble, and the episode ends. It was a lot to take in. 

I haven't started season three yet 'cause I wanted to make sure I put down my thoughts about season two first before I blurred the lines between the seasons. I'm excited to pick it up again and see what's going to happen. Most of the show's cast is currently surrounded by Cylons so I want to know how they get out of that. But I really want to know more about Helo and Sharon II's baby. And I hope Sharon II finally gets out of captivity. I really like her character and I want to see her be more than just a prisoner.

Anyway, I think that's about all I've got to say right now. So I think I'll end this so I can go watch more BSG.
