Farewell, Galactica

My favorite show on television the past few years has been "Battlestar Galactica."

It's occupied the No. 1 priority list on my DVR over that span, bumping anything my wife would want to record.

Now, however, I'm going through Battlestar withdrawl and she's enjoying the top spot on the DVR list.

"BSG" wrapped up March 20 and I already miss it.

The DVDs are great, bringing me back to when the show rocked. Especially that first season, which brought back memories of when I would come home from work and unwind with Battlestar and a beer.

Now, there are no more Cylons to fight. No earth to discover. No more scenes of No. 6.

The show wasn't entirely sci-fi. It was more drama set in space.

And, man, did they have some good fight scenes. The series finale had an epic battle, along with a nice, tidy ending.

Now, I'm looking for another series to get wrapped up in.

Have a suggestion? Want to share "BSG" stories, post a comment.

But I tell parents, you can have the right helmet, the perfect pads on, and still end up with a paraplegic kid. There’s no correcting it. There’s no helmet that’s going to correct it. There’s no teaching that’s going to correct it. It just comes down to it’s a physically violent game. Football players are in a car wreck every week.
